Weight Loss Q&A

What is phentermine?

Phentermine is a pharmacological treatment that helps you lose weight when you take it in conjunction with diet and exercise.

Phentermine works by suppressing appetite and making you feel full for longer. The team at Green Remedy Wellness recommends this treatment only for patients who struggle with obesity and haven’t seen results with diet and exercise alone.

If you’re interested in shedding a few pounds, phentermine isn’t right for you. It’s also not right for you if you have:

  • High blood pressure
  • Glaucoma
  • Heart disease
  • An overactive thyroid gland

In addition, it’s not a good choice for you if you’re breastfeeding, pregnant, or trying to get pregnant.

Does phentermine have any side effects?

When you take phentermine, you may experience some side effects. These include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation
  • Nervousness 
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sleeplessness
  • Prickling or tingling in your hands and feet

If you experience any side effects that alarm you, don’t hesitate to reach out to the team at Green Remedy Wellness.

What are B12 shots?

B12 shots are injections of vitamin B12 that Green Remedy Wellness offers to patients for weight loss. Vitamin B12 occurs naturally in many foods, including:

  • Dairy products, like milk
  • Fish
  • Meat and poultry
  • Eggs  

You can also find B12 in nutritional yeast, some plant milks, and fortified cereals.

In your body, vitamin B12 helps your body perform a variety of functions, including its ability to break down carbohydrates. It also helps the body convert proteins and fats into energy.

When you receive a B12 shot, you feel a boost in energy and your metabolism kicks up a notch. When you add B12 shots to your routine of healthy eating and exercise, they help you lose weight more easily.

B12 supplements are especially helpful for people with vitamin B12 deficiency who often suffer from chronic fatigue.

Can I lose weight without diet and exercise?

The team at Green Remedy Wellness believes that, with the right support and treatment, you can lose weight sustainably in a way that supports wellness. Sometimes, in order to reach your goals, you need a little help. 

Supplements alone won’t get you where you need to be. Green Remedy Wellness offers counseling and advice about nutrition and transitioning to an active lifestyle. When you combine these treatments with changes focused on wellness, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish.
