What makes Natural Flow’s Flow Lightly weight loss program unique?
Weight gain occurs over time due to an impaired metabolism, food sensitivities, and built up waste material within the colon and this program directly addresses all of these factors. The Flow Lightly program was designed and is supervised by our Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Vitaro, who personally consults with each participant to customize the program for them. The diet consists of a wide variety of hypoallergenic healthy foods supplemented by tasty nutritious beverages that promote weight loss by eliminating excess water, fat, and toxins from the body.
There are no pre-packaged meals or additional supplements to purchase and therefore none of the hidden costs associated with many other weight loss programs.
Flow Lightly is the only weight loss program that includes a series of colon hydrotherapy sessions which remove waste material and toxins from the body resulting in better absorption of the nutrients from food and increased metabolism.
For those who want to also explore the psychological reasons for weight gain, we offer sessions with Dana Byrd, a psychotherapist who is experienced with helping people overcoming the emotional issues relating to food.
The entire professional staff at Natural Flow is available to provide support and assistance throughout the program. The ultimate goal of the Flow Lightly program is to teach each participant how to make permanent changes to diet and lifestyle in order to enjoy a lighter, healthier, and happier future.
What does the program consist of?
The program is eight weeks in length. The basic program includes an initial evaluation with Dr. Vitaro, detailed dietary guidelines, nutritional beverages, ten colon hydrotherapy sessions, weekly weigh-ins and progress reviews, and unlimited support from our staff.
The program can be enhanced by adding sessions with Dr. Vitaro for those who want to address specific health concerns and with Dana Byrd for those who want to address the psychological reasons for weight gain. The optional Naturopathic Medicine and Psychotherapy sessions are offered at reduced rates during the program.
What can I expect?
You can expect an improved sense of well being from the nutritious diet and the elimination of toxins from your body which will motivate you to continue with the program. You may experience some cravings earlier in the program but our staff can suggest healthy alternatives and provide you with encouragement and support so the cravings will decrease over time. You can expect to learn or re-learn healthy diet and lifestyle habits. You will be encouraged to exercise at a moderate level. And yes, you can expect weight loss. The amount of weight loss will vary per individual.
Will I feel hungry?
You will not feel hungry during the program. You will be encouraged to eat regular meals in addition to one nutritional beverage a day. This will satisfy your appetite and stabilize your blood sugar level. The beverage is filling so it may be used to replace a meal or snack if desired. The Flow Lightly program emphasizes healthy food choices and mindful eating practices rather than simply restricting caloric intake. This will give you a solid foundation to make permanent changes in your life in order to maintain your ideal weight.
