Q:

I didn't see an answer to the question about if this weight loss detox is appropriate for a vegetarian diet, but I am curious about the same thing!

Jill T.  asked on  Jan 2, 2013

A:

The 21-day Detox is certainly appropriate for vegetarians as there are several protein options that are not meat. These options are limited however as beans and nuts are not a part of the plan. Some fish is allowed and some vegetarians choose to eat this while on the Detox Plan. The doctors at Insights to Health can help formulate an eating plan that best meets your dietary guidelines while also supports your weight loss goals.

Q:

1) Is there any follow-up or communication over the course of the 21 days if I choose NOT to schedule any $117 visits, or is the Groupon-covered initial visit the only contact? I doubt my Kaiser insurance would cover this out-of-network service, especially when I am already in a healthy weight range. 2) Can the program work with a vegetarian diet?

Kathryn E.  asked on  Jan 2, 2013

A:

Kathryn, If you have questions about your treatment plan, your doctor will be available by phone or email. We want the program to be successful for you! Several of our doctors are in network with Kaiser (if you call us we can direct you to one of them for your initial visit) so follow up visits may be covered if you have ND coverage and if you have any health problem the detox may help (eg. painful menstruation, heavy menstruation, digestive issues, sleep problems, fatigue, etc. (the detox can help almost any health problem, so as long as there is some issue to treat, insurance is a good option for follow up visits. Please let us know if you have additional questions! Dr. Christie

Q:

This may seem like a "duh" question but I'm only going to be in Portland for 4 days. Could I begin the detox there and not have to return after that?

Jamie G.  asked on  Jan 2, 2013

A:

Hi Jamie, You can definitely start the 21-Day Detox here in Portland and finish wherever you are traveling. What other people in this situation usually do is to do their follow up appointments by phone or skype. We have patients in Australia, Dubai, the East Coast, etc so we can help you through the Stabilization and Maintenance phases from afar with no problem! Dr. Christie

Q:

Hi, I am more interested in the whole "detox", or cleansing of toxins. I mean, I could probably stand to lose about 10lbs, that I've gained since the start of winter. I am 5'8", 142lbs. Is this ok for people who don't need to lose a ton of weight? I also struggle with extreme sugar cravings, every time I try to quit! :( Thank you

Lairen J.  asked on  Jan 1, 2013

A:

Hi Lairen, Yes, even if you wish to lose only 10 pounds this program works very well, and your doctor will also help you with those sugar cravings as well. The major health benefits are really from the detoxification and not the weight loss, so your thought process is correct. Then we will help you to keep on track so that the cravings do not return and your body stays detoxified! Dr. Christie

Q:

What extra costs can I expect to incur with this program?

richard n.  asked on  Jan 1, 2013

A:

Hi Richard, The Groupon stands on its own, if that is how you wish to use it. Success rates on the weight loss portion of the plan are higher if people do purchase the medicinary for their customized plan, because that is how addresses what you need as an individual (based on your one hour visit with one of our physicians) to lose weight quickly and relatively effortlessly, as well as address any health issues that are causing you to retain weight (the drops for the basic, non-customized program are included with the Groupon). Rates of maintenance of your new weight are higher for people who go through the Stabilization and Maintenance phases. We see patients on the Insights to Heath 21-Day Weight Loss and Detoxification Program (that is the name of it) every three weeks. If insurance covers the subsequent visits the patient is responsible for the copayment and any medicinary items prescribed. If insurance does not cover visits, the fee is $117 for a basic follow-up visit of 30 minutes. This is a discounted rate for our non-insurance patients. Many people find us through the Groupon initially and then realize that we can help them reach all of their health goals. Since weight loss itself does not usually create optimal health, our ultimate goal as holistic physicians is to help every patient to create the level of health where they have balanced hormones, abundant energy, even moods, low stress, healthy relationships, refreshing sleep and freedom from food cravings. We realize, however, that not everyone is looking for this level of health, and we are happy to assist you in whatever way you wish, from one visit on up! Here is some more information about the Stabilization and Maintenance phases: http://www.insightstohealth.net/groupon_faq We hope to meet you in the clinic! Dr. Christie

Q:

Two Questions: 1) Are appetite suppressants given during the weight-loss program? 2) It says if desired B-12 injections are given. Are these included or at an additional charge? If included, how many are given? Thanks!

Jonathan M.  asked on  Jan 1, 2013

A:

Hi Jonathan, Good questions! 1) The Insights to Health Detox Drops that are included with the program are very effective at helping to suppress appetite and reduce cravings while your body is adapting to detoxing. They are all natural, very gentle yet powerful remedies that we have used for years for patients with great success. 2) B-12 vitamin injections are included! We give one if desired at the initial, Groupon-covered visit and then another at your first follow up visit to move you into the Stabilization phase. This visit is often covered by insurance; we can help you to determine this or give you a time of service discount. B-12 Injections have many benefits you can read about here and are a great addition to the program--especially during this time of the year in Portland!! http://www.insightstohealth.net/b12_happy_hour Let us know if more questions arise, and we hope to meet you in the clinic! Dr. Christie Winkelman
