Metabolism & Weightloss

Treating Metabolism & Weightloss

Understanding your metabolism is a key factor in determining the root cause of many chronic illnesses. When your body is under a large amount of stress from a chronic disease, your metabolism can react to cause unprecedented weight loss or sudden weight gain.

Neither of the two is healthy when caused by chronic health issues. If you are struggling with sudden weight changes and fluctuations, there is likely a more clear root cause that is impeding your health. At PEAK, we want you to understand your metabolism. We want you to live a healthy life. This starts with finding the cause of the health issue that is causing the weight gain or loss. We will work with you through lifestyle medicine that can change your life.

“We’ve helped over 500 people over the past 5 years lose weight and improve their metabolic health.”

“The key to metabolic health and weight loss is helping people understand the types of foods to focus on to help balance hormones and allow their body to “unlock” their fat reserves and burn it for energy.”

Dr. Buddy Touchinsky DC, CFMP

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Buddy and the team at PEAK. This could be a very long winded review due to all of the great things I have to say, but I will try to sum it up. The team at PEAK medicine are reinventing the way you should look at your health program. They have a full spectrum approach to the way you manage your health and it is one of the best programs in the country. I will stand behind those words! If you are considering, or are even the slightest bit interested in, getting healthier or want to pursue various health/nutrition goals.... you HAVE TO go visit with PEAK medicine and see what they can do for you. You will not be disappointed! Keep up the good work guys!

Great place! I came here back in June upon the recommendation of Iron Mind Counseling as I was having very bad anxiety and health issues as well. They offer great comprehensive blood work and even pointed me towards a blood serum mycotoxin test as I knew I likely was having mold illness. From both blood works I got the confirmation that I really needed to jump on this! And I likely would have kept pushing it off and dealing with it with the doctors I had been seeing in the past who weren’t offering the right tests or treatments. I’m glad that by going here I have come to find that there is an affordable way to treat this and I don’t have to keep jumping through hoops! Highly recommend!

I LOVE PEAK and all the staff. I have some challenges with anxiety and they are all so accommodating with me. They respond in a timely manner, I never feel rushed thru appointments and when I bring up a concern no matter how far fetched it might seem, they talk me thru why it could or couldn't be that issue. Highly recommend

While we do have our "regular" doctor/PCP with a large local health system, we have been delighted with PEAK and its staff and programs. They have helped us learn more about consequences of personal choices with nutrition, have a great medical staff and nutrition health coaches. If you are looking for supplemental medical help or even full time, this is the place to go. Along with Healthy Habits Organic store we have both attained better habits, better health outcomes and better understanding of how to properly monitor our health. Check them out.

I cannot say enough about Peak Integrative.This is the future of healthcare.Instead of just telling you what is wrong they actually look into what could be your issue and how to treat it instead of promoting some new off the wall pharmaceutical products to sell you in hopes you feel better. All starts with you and your body and the mindset.. First you do a discussion of your health and concerns. Bloodwork testing in all areas to see where to start and finding what could be wrong with you. Available chat sessions and very quick to respond to any issues you may have. Definitely try Peak . Maybe the game changer you need to a healthier and happy lifestyle.

Can't say enough about the incredible experience that I had today at Peak Integrative Medicine. The staff was extremely friendly and professional. Buddy Touchinsky was wonderful, he spent an ample amount of time going over options and making several suggestions to help my son. This practice deserves 10 stars!!!

My experience with PEAK has been awesome! This program is so informative and comprehensive! Any testing not only provides results, but solutions and complete understanding in order to tackle any imbalances before they become issues. This approach is a great way to manage wellness and overcome health concerns in a way our bodies can easily respond to. The practitioners here are fantastic! Everyone here is completely dedicated with their knowledge and personal, friendly commitment to helping every client achieve the best health possible. This is the best step I have on my wellness journey!!

Peak Integrative Medicine is by far the best practice in the area. The facilities are beautiful and comfortable. I love not being rushed through appointments to meet a quota. I feel heard and understood. My other doctors have made me feel like my issues are in my head. Well, my in depth blood work panel says otherwise. Christin was very thorough during my intake appointment and made sure all of my concerns were addressed. Buddy has been great for Chiropractic care. The practice offers a large variety of treatment options worth checking out. Invest in your health before it’s too late!

  • Health Assessment & Information Gathering: We are here to guide your personal health expedition and to do so, we need to gather as much information as possible.
  • Nutrition Coaching: We will coach you on a diet that will work with your metabolism.
  • Start Metabolic Weight Loss Plan: Based on our initial assessment, we will develop a metabolic weight loss plan. As we follow this plan, we will continue to assess and improve its effectiveness.
  • Assess Plan & Strategy: Based on your body’s reaction to the metabolic plan, we may remap and redirect your nutrition and health roadmap to reach the health goals we set. Based on the data we collect by monitoring your health, we can continually improve how your metabolism and weight are managed.

PEAK Integrative Medicine Is Not “Another Health Guru”

While we are passionate about health, it is important to understand that we are not a health guru or health influencers. We are health professionals with years of experience in our field.

At PEAK Integrative Medicine, we do a lot of work to understand your specific body, your metabolic type, its needs, and any underlying health issues that can keep you from living a healthy lifestyle. We want to renew your metabolism and improve your health and nutrition in a way that also results in weight loss.

Will PEAK Help Me Lose Weight?

Yes, many people who work with us lose weight. Losing excess weight is key to being healthy. Many of our programs work closely with you to understand exactly what your body needs to lose weight, correct your metabolism, and help balance your hormones. We work with you to lose weight without medication so you can experience natural weightloss.

Metabolic Weightloss Is Not One-Size-Fits-All

We have had many people come to us with chronic health issues and express how they have tried to diet, they have tried every type of exercise, yet they can’t seem to effectively lose weight. That is because many of the quick diets or health sprints that exist have a bit of a one-size-fits-all approach. When you work with PEAK, we pay close attention to your health, run regular tests to learn what your body needs, and improve your diet and metabolic plan
