A MedHealth 360 Program
Living Healthy Requires Movement
Your body craves exercise. In fact, every body system functions more efficiently with a minimal amount of exercise. It increases your basal metabolic rate, releases endorphins to improve your mood, and adds strength and mobility to your muscles and joints. In contrast, people who don’t exercise enough are more predisposed to gaining weight, complain of aches and pains more often, and are more predisposed to apathy and depression. Think about how you feel after an exercise class, a team sport session, a yoga or pilates class, even a short, brisk walk with friends. Most people would say tired but positive, their brains alert and body fizzing with adrenaline. It is so important to keep your body active and moving.
We believe at MedHealth 360, that fitness is integral to any wellness program.

Key Components To Our Plan
These services treat and often cure prevailing health challenges - try for yourself!
Diet and Nutritional Counseling
Designed to decrease insulin resistance
A poor diet in both quantity and quality is the main reason why most people gain weight. Our medically supervised program includes education on proper diet, reasonable calorie intake, intermittent fasting, and the influences of food and hormones on insulin resistance.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Estrogen | Testosterone
Men and women both have both estrogen and testosterone. Their levels of both estrogen and testosterone decrease with age beginning in the mid-thirties.
Decreasing levels of estrogen AND testosterone are one of the main reasons why women have a harder and harder time maintaining or losing weight as they approach menopause
Testosterone normally assists in the regulation of blood circulation, glucose modulation, energy, and moods.
Estrogen and Testosterone replacement using bioidentical hormones is therefore an essential component of healthy weight maintenance
Fitness and Metabolism
Fitness and Yoga Programs coordinated for you
Your metabolic set-point determines how efficiently your body burns energy when you are active as well as when you are not. Dieting is useless unless you efficiently burn calories. Our fitness program is therefore an essential component of healthy weight maintenance.
Fitness Requires a 360 Degree Approach

Programs Individualized To Your Needs
Fitness programs at Med-Health 360 emphasize circuit training to increase metabolism, increase your metabolism, strengthen your bones, reduce insulin resistance while increasing your overall mobility. Our instructors are chosen for the desire to help and interact with people as well as their knowledge of how fitness impacts your metabolism and wellness.
We will work with you to create a fitness plan that includes meal planning and exercise to help you get the right nutrients and motion your body needs. This plan includes accountability through both automated as virtual or in-person progress assessments.
Metabolism is pretty much the key to a healthy lifestyle: both for eating and exercise. When you first start with us, we will run metabolic tests and continue these assessments over your time working with us to heal or improve your metabolic rate.
Body composition is very important for many people and especially athletes and body-builders. Do you know your fat to body ratio or your muscle mass ratio? We will help you assess and set goals to help you create the body of your dreams.
Yoga and flexibility exercises are very important to overall health. Stretching and improving mobility are key practices to better circulation and metabolism as well as mind-set and focus.
Circuit training is when you cycle through a bunch of exercises ( usually 5 to 10 ) that target different muscle groups without resting in between. For example, you might move from squats to push-ups to planks to lunges to supermans, and keep repeating until you’re totally toasted. (You’re probably also wondering what the difference is between circuit training and interval training.) The resulting workout is part strength training and part cardio, which is what makes it one of the most effective training styles out there. Benefits include: Getting maximum results in minimum time, challenging your whole body, you get the benefits of cardio and strength training, AND sends your metabolism soaring.
Osteoporosis describes the weakening and decalcification of your bones with aging. Sedentary lifestyles, poor posture, limited use of the bones, and weak muscles increase your risk for fractures. The ability of exercise to decreases bone loss while increasing bone strength are well recognized
Insulin resistance is the reason for being overweight in a majority of people. Primary reasons for insulin resistance include oversaturating cellular insulin receptors with processed carbohydrates and glucose as well as changes in cellular metabolism. Exercise appears to increase cellular metabolism regulating the efficiency of insulin receptors.
Joint mobility is an integral component of living a healthier and longer life. Joint mobility decreases with age for many reasons. These include an increasingly sedentary lifestyle with fatigue life and work; and increasing joint and muscle shortening, scarring, and pain. At Med-Health 360, we emphasize fitness and yoga to increase muscle and joint mobility which in turn will decrease chronic pain.

Your Complimentary Consultation
Getting to know you
Getting to know you is important to us. Your experience will begin with your consultation. We want to hear about your previous health experiences, your diet, nutrition, and exercise history as well as your thoughts on living a healthier and longer. Getting to know you is the most helpful way to create a treatment plan for you.
Lab Work + Review of Results
Know the problem to identify the solution
Your body will often lose its ability to adequately control normal biologic levels of hormones and electrolytes as we age. Lab work is needed to check for these vital biological components to help us understand how you are aging. Labs can often be performed from or near your home.
Labs and Studies for Low Energy
- Thyroid hormone
- Vitamins and Electrolytes including B Complex, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C
- Metabolic testing
- Sleep study referrals

Weekly Support and Buddy System
No man or woman should be an island
Our counselors and staff will help you stay on course with weekly or monthly support sessions where you will get feedback on your weight, metabolic tests, and evaluations on how you are progressing in the programs.
Maintaining a healthy weight doesn’t come naturally to most patients. Healthy living is a combination of many lifestyle habits that many people never learned. Weekly check-ins are an integral part of establishing accountability and obtaining feedback for your new lifestyle habits.
In our experience, most patients are simply confused about what exactly is a good and or healthy diet to achieve a healthy weight and a long life. There is so much misinformation out there that it becomes hard to educate yourself about what entails a healthy diet. It wasn’t too long ago that the government endorsed a high carbohydrate diet. More recently, meat-based diets such as the Atkins diet was popular; this was followed shortly by the the South Beach Diet and the Mediterranean Diets. There are plenty of diets out there that will offer big results but may not be the healthiest options for your body in the long run.
Reducing Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance is one of the most important problems when it comes to regulating weight. Prolonged increases in glucose and insulin levels will eventually lead to insulin resistance and weight gain. An important method of how to break the cycle of insulin resistance is medically supervised intermittent fasting. Our coaches will help you learn methods of intermittent fasting while supervising your labs and vitals.
There are a number of health benefits to fasting. While fasting your growth hormones increase, helping with fat loss and muscle gain. Your insulin levels drop which will help protect your body against Type 2 diabetes. Intermittent fasting is better for your heart, your brain, can help reduce inflammations which cause many chronic conditions and could also extend lifespan.
Here at Med-Health 360, we will work with you to help you find the right fasting schedule to fit your lifestyle. The intermittent fasting will be part of a healthy eating plan created for you.
Hormones and Weight
Hormones play a huge role in how your body regulates your weight. Most patient will lose the ability to properly regulate their estrogen, testosterone, insulin, cortisol, and thyroid levels as they age. Even young patients might struggle with how their bodies regulate their hormones. At Med-Health 360 we test your hormonal levels and use these results to help create your individualized program.
