How to Lose Weight With Diet and hCG Treatment

There are many reasons why you might not be getting the weight loss results you want. If your metabolism is slow, your weight fluctuates, you overeat, or you can’t seem to lose weight no matter how hard you try, you may have a hormone imbalance. That’s where hCG weight loss therapy comes in.

In today’s blog, Emerge Medical & Well Spa explains how hCG weight loss therapy, along with a healthy diet, can reset your metabolism and help you lose as much as a pound a day, without any fatigue.

hCG Weight Loss Therapy

HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone found naturally in women, especially during pregnancy, and it is often used to treat fertility issues. When combined with a low-calorie diet, hCG injections help boost metabolism and promote fat burn without leaving you feeling hungry.

With our hCG weight loss therapy program, you will receive a physical and medical evaluation by a licensed medical provider, nutritional training, an easy to self-administer hCG medication, and weekly appointments for guidance and accountability. At Emerge, our medical experts will make sure you’re comfortable during your hCG weight loss journey!

Personalized Diet

Along with hCG injections, diet is an important factor in a successful weight loss treatment. At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, all of our hCG patients receive a personalized diet plan. Here are some of the things you might see in your diet that will help regulate hormones and promote weight loss:

  • Eliminating sugar, alcohol, and flour will help minimize the insulin hormone that promotes fat storage around the belly.
  • Implementing lean meats, eggs, and protein will help stimulate glucagon levels to promote fat burn.
  • Adding fish, fish oil, nuts, and seeds will provide essential fatty acids for weight loss — and your hair will love it too!
  • Drinking at least 2 liters of water a day will help keep your energy levels up, and it will provide a long list of additional benefits.

In addition to these diet tips, it is important to keep your cortisol levels down. The cortisol hormone is elevated during high levels of stress, increasing insulin and making weight loss difficult. Keep your cortisol levels down by getting enough sleep, practicing meditation or other stress-relieving activities, and spending a few minutes a day doing something nice just for yourself.

Myths About Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

If you are a male experiencing symptoms like low sex drive, fatigue, loss of muscle, depression, or mood changes, you may have low levels of testosterone. Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa offers a solution for men experiencing lowered levels of testosterone: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Read on to learn about myths and facts associated with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men, and find out how to get started on BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy at our medical spa.

Myth #1: Testosterone Is a Dangerous Steroid

The idea that testosterone is a dangerous steroid that only bodybuilders use is a common misconception. In reality, testosterone and all other steroids are natural compounds found in the human body that do a lot of good for your health. As with any steroid, it should be used in moderation and under the supervision of medical professionals like the ones at Emerge. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is based on 34 years of research that ensures safety and optimizes hormones in the best way possible.

Myth #2: Testosterone Causes Aggressive Behavior

Associate testosterone therapy with “roid rage” is a common mistake. In reality, there is no research to back up this claim. You’re more likely to be irritable due to a testosterone deficiency than during or after hormone replacement therapy!

Myth #3: Testosterone Will Change My Body in Weird Ways

When men think about testosterone therapy, they often think it will cause unwanted changes in their body like breast growth or shrinkage of the testicles. Excess chest fat is caused by an increase of estrogen, and testicular shrinkage is caused by medically excessive testosterone. With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, your testosterone levels will be carefully monitored and administered by professionals to ensure the right outcome for you.

Facts About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Now that you know about some of the myths associated with testosterone treatment, let’s talk about what it can actually do for you. Especially as they age, many men find themselves to be more sluggish, fatigued, and less motivated. This may be caused by a hormone imbalance that can be remedied by Hormone Replacement Therapy. Here are some of the benefits you may experience:

  • Boosted sex drive
  • Increased energy levels
  • Increase in muscle mass
  • Easier time losing weight
  • Elevated mood
  • Overall healthier lifestyle

Using Botox to Treat Hyperhidrosis

Woman receiving Botox injection in armpit

If you live with hyperhidrosis, you know that it can be an embarrassing and unwanted disruption to your daily life. Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa is here today to tell you that we have a solution for your hyperhidrosis: BOTOXⓇ! Not only can this treatment help reduce wrinkles, but it has been proven as an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis refers to excessive or uncontrollable sweating on the hands, armpits, feet, or face. Hyperhidrosis may not always be related to heat or exercise, and often results in so much sweat that it soaks through clothes or drips.

BOTOXⓇ

BOTOXⓇ is a safe and effective injection commonly used as a cosmetic treatment to smooth wrinkles on the face. A BOTOXⓇ injection is made of a safe toxin that temporarily paralyzes the muscle at the injection site, and has been known to treat symptoms of hyperhidrosis, overactive bladders, neck spasms, and lazy eyes.

Benefits of Using BOTOXⓇ for Hyperhidrosis

When it comes to hyperhidrosis, BOTOXⓇ offers an extremely safe and effective off-label solution to prescription antiperspirants. If you find that your prescription antiperspirants are failing to work, you may be the perfect candidate for this treatment. Here are some of the benefits:

Improved Quality of Life

With a safe and effective treatment like BOTOXⓇ, you can expect to see results that leave you feeling satisfied and positive about your hyperhidrosis. Patients often see improvement in their ability to perform work activities, a decline in emotional damage due to hyperhidrosis, and significantly less limitations in social interactions and situations.

Little Down Time

A great benefit of BOTOXⓇ treatment is that you can resume your normal activities right after treatment with minimal discomfort or soreness!

Long-Term Effects

While the effects of BOTOXⓇ injections are temporary, results can last for anywhere from three to six months! And BOTOXⓇ treatments are safe enough that you can follow up on your treatment when it wears off.

Extremely Safe

The professional medical spa staff at Emerge Medical & Well Spa are highly trained to use the most effective and advanced treatment methods. And don’t let the word “toxin” scare you, because BOTOXⓇ only uses a small amount that is perfectly safe when used by our trained staff.

As with any injection or drug, BOTOXⓇ comes with some minor risks like headaches and pain at the injection site. But treatment is tolerated well in an extremely high number of patients, and only a small number of patients see these side effects.

BOTOXⓇ, Fillers & Injectables at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

If you’re looking for a BOTOXⓇ treatment for your hyperhidrosis or smooth your wrinkles, Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa offers a comfortable and relaxing environment with professionally trained staff to guide you through.

5 Benefits of hCG Weight Loss Therapy

5 Ways hCG Weight Loss Therapy Can Benefit You

HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is an all-natural hormone in both men and women that helps to regulate your metabolism, but it provides many other benefits as well. When hCG is injected, it forces the body to utilize adipose fat, helping to speed up the weight loss process.

With the help of a personalized diet plan, the Emerge Medical and Well Spa staff will guide you through this process and encourage a healthy lifestyle. We want to show you the reasons why hCG is not your typical weight loss program. Read on to learn about the top five benefits of hCG Weight Loss Therapy.

1. Rapid Weight Loss

HCG targets unused fats in the body and helps to burn them quickly. This weight loss program can help you lose as much as one pound per day! While monitoring the doses of this protein based hormone and limiting calorie intake, hCG makes the body shed weight fast. The increase in hCG helps burn pesky fats in areas such as the arms, thighs, stomach, and neck, making this unlike traditional diets.

2. Improved Metabolic Functions

It is difficult to increase metabolism with other diets. However, hCG instructs your body to target areas that normally aren’t utilized in order to keep your energy levels up. Often, higher energy levels directly relate to an increased metabolism. Through hCG therapy, the body aims to use as much stored energy within fats as possible, buring calories in places that are difficult to target.

3. No Hunger Pains

One large factor that sets hCG Weight Loss Therapy apart from other dieting programs is there are no hunger pains! While you do restrict your calorie intake, there aren’t pains associated with being hungry since hCG pulls the calories from already stored fats. Our team at Emerge Medical and Well Spa will work with you to come up with a personalized program to maximize your weight loss experience.

4. Renewed Energy

Dieting in general can result in lack of energy, motivation, and feeling “out-of-it” throughout the day. Because hCG targets stored energy in your body, you will not have the feeling of an energy drain. It is very common for people to have increased energy levels almost immediately after starting the program!

5. Hormone Balance

Increasing your hCG helps to regulate hormones. Staying true to the program will help to regulate estrogen balance in women and testosterone in men. Having stable hormones also helps to ensure the weight loss process is as healthy as possible.

Explore Emerge Medical & Well Spa hCG Options

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we pride ourselves in making the needs of the customer our top priority. Our experienced staff will help create a custom weight loss program just for you, and your provider will support you as you achieve your desired results. Contact us on our website or call us at (918) 392-8606 to get more information. We look forward to helping you maximize your state of wellness!

Common Myths About Allergy Testing

Emerge Medical & Well Spa: Common Myths About Allergy Testing

Allergies differ from person-to-person. However, both mild and severe allergies can have a negative impact on your life. Nothing’s quite as annoying as frequently suffering from headaches, skin rashes, cold symptoms, and wheezing. Emerge Medical & Well Spa can help to detect these symptoms early to get to the root of the problem.

There are many misconceptions surrounding allergy testing. While the internet has many sources for medical advice, we suggest you see our professional team to ensure accuracy. Read on to learn about some common allergy testing myths and why you should seek out our professionals.

Myth: All Allergy Tests Are the Same

There have been several new allergy testing methods introduced recently. At-home tests sold in drugstores and ancestry kits that look at past family health are two examples of allergy testing methods that are not accurate. The two most common allergy testing methods that provide accurate information are skin tests and blood tests.

Skin testing and blood testing help to ensure the most accurate information. Skin testing is the oldest, most reliable, and most common form of allergy testing. At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we offer skin testing that is pain-free and can take as little as 15 minutes to reveal the source of your allergy troubles.

Myth: Only Children Need to Get Allergy Tested

While allergy testing is commonly performed at early ages, it is not solely for children. We highly encourage adults who haven’t had an allergy test to come to Emerge in order to find a solution. Allergies can develop later in life, and new symptoms can arise at any time. They often become relevant at some of the most inconvenient times. We want to give you relief from these symptoms through our natural immunotherapy treatment.

Myth: You Must Completely Avoid Anything That Tested Positive

While there are items that might need to be avoided, there are often allergens that simply need to be taken in moderation. Our team is able to thoroughly explain the severity of allergens and how you need to address them in the future. After looking at the test, we are able to examine other factors to reinforce these results. Some of the results may show as positive, meaning there is a possibility for an allergy. With immunotherapy, there are different options available that are personally customized to your specific treatment.

Emerge Medical & Well Spa Can Help

Emerge Medical & Well Spa offers allergy testing that can provide accurate results in a quick and painless way. Our professionals are there to work with you through the process, providing support during and after the test. Immunotherapy treatment is a true solution for allergy treatment.

Determining your allergies early can help you feel healthy and beautiful. To learn more about our immunotherapy treatment, look at our wellness services page. Call the Emerge Medical & Well Spa at (918) 392-8606 and make an allergy testing appointment today!

Top 5 Things to Know About Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash Extensions WomanTop 5 Things to Know About Eyelash Extensions

The experts at Emerge Medical & Well Spa know all the details when it comes to eye-catching beauty. We have seen true beauty in all sizes, shapes, styles, and every color of the rainbow! In today’s blog, we explore some of the most important facts to know about eyelash extensions. If you have never tried eye-catching eyelash extensions from Emerge Medical & Well Spa, read on to discover the top 5 things to know!

1) The First 48 Hours Are Important

The first 48 hours after you get your eyelash extensions are important for ensuring that they look great and last a long time. This is the time when your lash extensions are bonding to your real lashes, so it’s important to be gentle with your lashes during the first 48 hours. Exposing your lashes to water or steam will weaken the bond and cause your lashes to lose their lasting beauty. So avoid hot showers, saunas, facials, swimming, and similar activities.

2) Eyelash Extensions Are Long Lasting

It’s great to be able to count on your beauty routine, so you’ll love that you can rely on your eyelash extensions for long-lasting glamour. With a little TLC, eyelash extensions will look great for two to four weeks! At that point, you can have a quick eyelash extension refill.

Emerge Quick Tip: After the appointment when you have your eyelash extensions applied, plan ahead and schedule your refill at Emerge Medical & Well Spa!

3) Eyelash Extensions Are Light

Eyelash extensions deliver bold beauty, but they are surprisingly lightweight! Many first-time eyelash clients worry that their eyelids will feel heavy, but they are always amazed by how airy and effortless the lashes really are. If you love the look of glamorous eyelash extensions but you have been worried about the weight, it’s important to know that eyelash extensions are light!

4) Eyelash Extensions Require TLC

Just like you, eyelash extensions need a little TLC to look and feel great. There are lots of little steps you can take to ensure that your eyelash extensions stand the test of time.

When you are going to bed, avoid smudging your eyelash extensions on your pillow, because it can lead to lost lashes. Be gentle with your lashes when you are using cleansers, wiping your face, or rubbing your eyes.

Lash curlers are a no-go for eyelash extensions because they can cause damage. Mascara is best avoided for the same reason. Of course, your amazing eyelash extensions will look great without the need for lash curlers or mascara!

5) Eyelash Extensions are Versatile

Eyelash extensions are very versatile. They can deliver a dramatic impact or they can provide a more subtle look. Eyelash extensions are truly transformative, whether they are designed to be eye-catching or subtle.

Subtle styles can be used to complement a no-makeup look, elevating your natural beauty. Eyelash extensions can also be used to create dramatic styles with the eye-catching cat-eye look of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Eyelash Extensions at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

If you are ready to take your style to the next level, the beauty experts at Emerge Medical & Well Spa are ready to take you there. Whether you prefer a subtle natural style or bold and beautiful glamour, the look you want is at your fingertips. Reach out to Emerge Medical & Well Spa today!

The Impact of Allergies on Beauty and Wellness

Beauty and Wellness: The Impact of Allergies

Chronic allergies can have a big impact on your beauty and wellness, and sometimes it can feel like there isn’t a good solution. Many allergy sufferers try to treat and cover up the symptoms with home remedies, cleansers and makeup. Other allergy sufferers turn to prescription medication that reduces symptoms but does little to address the underlying causes.

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we are dedicated to protecting the beauty and wellness of every client, and that’s why we offer allergy testing and immunotherapy. Read on in today’s blog to learn about the impact of allergies on beauty and wellness.

The Impact of Allergies on Beauty

Whether you have an important business meeting or you are simply running errands, allergies can have a negative impact on your natural beauty, and that impacts your confidence as you move through your day. We believe that everyone should feel healthy, confident and beautiful, so when allergies get in the way it’s time for action!

One of the most common symptoms of allergies is dry, irritated skin. This often leads to pink or red discoloration of the skin on the face, neck and chest. Inflammation is also common, resulting in puffiness and sensitivity. The area around the eyes is particularly vulnerable to allergic reaction, where swelling of eyelids and under eyes has a large impact on beauty and confidence. Itchy, watery eyes are also common.

All of these symptoms make it difficult to feel your best. They can get in the way of the daily cleansing and makeup routine that many sufferers usually use to handle the symptoms. When you find that home remedies and makeup aren’t enough to cover up the problem of allergies, it’s time to start looking for a real solution.

The Impact of Allergies on Wellness

In addition to the common allergy impacts on beauty, there are also many effects on general wellness. Allergies often cause symptoms similar to the common cold, such as obstructed sinuses, runny nose, sore throat and cough.

When allergies make you feel unwell, it’s time to take the problem seriously. At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we believe that true beauty emerges from whole-body wellness and great personal health. That’s why we provide holistic health and beauty solutions for our clients. We go beyond treating the symptoms; we treat the real causes.

Allergy Testing with Emerge Medical & Well Spa

The comprehensive allergy testing service offered at Emerge Medical & Well Spa is your first step towards freedom from allergies. We will assess your sensitivity to a full panel of allergens, so that you know exactly what the issue is. Once the allergen is identified, the next step is intensive immunotherapy treatment. This treatment conditions your immune system to respond properly to the target allergen, potentially reducing or eliminating allergic symptoms for the rest of your life!

If you are suffering from allergies that impact your beauty and your health, you are not alone. Many people find relief every day with allergy testing and immunotherapy. Reach out to the experts at Emerge Medical & Well Spa to discover the right solution for you!
