Losing weight is kinda hard specially with us Filipinos, we really do love to eat. As a blogger, attending to different events almost everyday made me exposed to food buffets and restaurant food reviews that would require me to eat… and eat… and eat. To my dismay, I really gained a lot of weight. And it is so frustrating and hard to lose those excess flabs. Obesity is not good because it can lead you to different health problems.
When diet and exercise seems not working, we may resort to other weight management regimens. For me it is ok as long as it is safe and non-invasive.
Zen Institute, a medical spa is now offering their Weight Management Program which are scientifically-proven to be safe and effective.
Just recently, they introduced their Colonics and IV Micro Nutrition as part of their weight management program.
Colon Hydrotherapy aka Colonics is a way to clean the colon apart from the non-surgical way of flushing toxins out of the body.
Guided by the philosophy that holistic health is a harmonious combination of medical science, creativity and aesthetic sense, The Zen Institute employs a process that is done with the use of the top of the line hydrotherapy machine and licensed doctors. The therapy usually lasts from 50 up to 60 minutes. On a long term basis, Colonics, can reach an even deeper layer of body/mind connections, emotional/mental baggage and energetic re-patterning.
Part of the program is a coffee cocktail to enhance faster metabolism and improve better absorption of the nutrients needed by the body. Colonics should be employed at least four times a year to facilitate the accumulation of the toxins in the body, however, it can be done weekly specially by those who don’t eat much vegetables, drink alcohol a lot, and have unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A patient who has undergone colonics should maintain a good and healthy diet as this encourages the growth of good bacteria in the body.
At a certain age, people start to feel that their liver is taking too much from all the drugs they use. This is what leads many to consider IV Micronutrition.
Intravenuous (IV) Micronutrition is a procedure that delivers micronutrients straight to the veins—no need to pass through the gastrointestinal system and liver enzymes. Hence, it spares the liver and gastrointestinal tract from further exposure to drugs. And nothing is lost in the process; all the nutrients in the right amounts get absorbed directly and become ready for the body to use.
At the Zen Institute, they offer four types of IV micronutrients: Immune Booster (consists of vitamin B-complex and thymus extract , which work together to improve T-cells), Revitalize (Vitamin B-complex, electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids), Rejuvenate (vitamin B-complex, electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids to enhance cell regeneration from within), and Weight Management (amino acids, L-carnatine, electrolytes, and vitamin C, to speed up metabolism and fat mobilization).
I have experienced a non invasive procedure and part of Zen Institute’s Weight management program which is the Ultralipo. Ultralipo reduces cellulite and body volume. It is also known to decrease the size of problem areas by up to two centimeters per session.
First, the therapist will put expose the target area, in my case, my belly area.
Tissue paper will be placed on every edge of clothing near the treatment area to prevent being soiled from the lubricatiing gel.
Then the therapist will apply lubricating gel for easy gliding of the Ultralipo Cavitation head.
The therapist will move the Ultralipo Cavitation head in circular motion targeting the whole belly one area ata a time.
During the session, you will hear a very sharp sound. The therapist said that when you hear sharp sounds it means that fats are being hit by the machine. So the higher the sound means more fats.
The Ultralipo session will take only 15 mins. and can be done once a week for only Php6,300/session.
Overall, weight management, to make it effective, safe and precise, should observe a strict science-based protocol, in a holistic approach. And only a true, medical spa, can professionally give you the results you aim for.
