Peptide Weight Loss Program

Unlock your metabolism for sustainable results.

This is NOT another fad diet.

Many patients come to us having already tried:
The problem is the weight returns unless we correct the metabolism FIRST.

Correcting your metabolism is the key.

Unwanted weight gain is often driven by factors completely unrelated to willpower or lifestyle:
GLP-1 peptides work because they improve these hidden causes of weight gain.

Backed by Research

GLP-1 medical weight loss is not a quick fix. We commonly see patients in our practice lose 4-6 pounds per month.

This rate of weight loss is healthy and sustainable!

Research shows that the majority of patients taking a GLP-1 medication lose more than 10% of their body weight.

How GLP-1 Agonists Work

GLP-1 is a natural peptide produced in the gut after eating. It decreases appetite, slows digestion, and triggers insulin release.

We prescribe a GLP-1 agonist called semaglutide. It mimics naturally occurring GLP-1 to create a perfect environment for weight loss.

Benefits of GLP-1 Weight Loss

Exciting new research suggests that GLP-1 agonists may also benefit the gut microbiome!

Unlock Your Metabolism for Sustainable Weight Loss

The Peptide Weight Loss Program is a 3-12 month all-inclusive package.

Here’s what’s included:

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist that is available through a compounding pharmacy. One injection per week is simple to administer at home and the key to sustainable weight loss.

Vitamin B12 is an important nutrient for metabolic health and weight loss. B12 is administered as an intramuscular (IM) injection in the office every other week.

Any time there is weight loss, there is a chance of losing lean muscle mass. So we monitor your body composition quarterly to be sure you lose fat and stay strong.

You’ll meet for an initial consultation with a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and then have monthly visits with the doctor to monitor and adjust your protocol.

You’ll meet with a medical assistant every other week to track your progress and get coaching on injections, minimizing side effects, menu planning, and exercise.

The Peptide Weight Loss Program is NOT a diet. It is a program to correct your metabolism for easier weight loss. It will work best, however, when you follow a healthy diet and lifestyle. You’ll receive food lists and menu planning ideas to improve your results.

Sustainable weight loss with just one injection per week.

There are many GLP-1 agonist medications on the market, including some that are FDA approved for weight loss or diabetes, like Ozempic®, Wegovy®, Saxenda®, Trulicity®, and Mounjaro®.
We believe it’s wrong to use diabetes drugs for weight loss when it decreases the supply for those who need them most. Instead, we prescribe semaglutide from a compounding pharmacy. That means:

Frequently Asked Questions

We prescribe semaglutide injections through a compounding pharmacy. Compounded semaglutide does not have FDA approval for specific conditions but is similar to the active ingredient in Wegovy®, which is FDA approved for diabetes and weight loss.
Yes. Semaglutide injections are easy to administer yourself. They go into the fatty area of the abdomen. We will be sure you understand how to safely do this at home.
The most common side effect we see is acid reflux. Semaglutide slows down gastric emptying and digestion, so it can also cause nausea, vomiting, or constipation. Our doctors and medical assistants can help you minimize these side effects by the timing of injection, food choices, and natural remedies.
Semaglutide is not safe for anybody who has a history of thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome (MENS). Our doctors will review your health history to be sure it is safe for you.
Typical weight loss with semaglutide is about 1 to 1.5 pounds per week or 4-6 pounds per month. You should begin to notice weight loss within the week of your first injection.
The length of treatment depends on individual goals. Many people will take semaglutide for 6 months and then discontinue and maintain their weight loss. However, there are some individuals who benefit from ongoing treatment, such as those with type 2 diabetes.
Semaglutide works by correcting the metabolism. Studies show that weight loss is maintained after discontinuing treatment. The decision of when to discontinue is individual and should be discussed with your doctor.
No. We prescribe semaglutide through a compounding pharmacy.
The GLP-1 Metabolic Weight Loss Program is all-inclusive to cover the cost of weekly semaglutide injections, Lipo B12 injections, and consultations with the medical assistants and naturopathic doctors. Depending on the plan you choose, pricing begins at $350 per month.
Yes. Semaglutide is just one of the many tools we have at our disposal for weight loss. We also offer HCG treatments, the ProLon fasting mimicking diet, and nutrient injections to support the metabolism. We are naturopathic doctors who will look for the root cause of weight gain and will be sure to address underlying causes.

We want this to be the LAST weight loss program you need.

At Desert Wellness Center, we are a team of naturopathic doctors who believe in identifying and treating the root cause of the problem.

Semaglutide is a powerful weight loss tool, but we will also address any other issues that can interfere with weight loss (such as food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, thyroid function, etc.).

Our comprehensive approach means you will get the most out of your GLP-1 treatment and become metabolically and sustainably healthy.

We look forward to working with you!
