Our Medical Weight Loss Program in Chester Springs, PA

If you want to lose weight and improve your health, the Sanctuary Wellness Institute can help.

The participants of our medical weight loss program use compounded semaglutide and tirzepatide injections, which reduce appetite and suppress cravings to facilitate weight loss. The majority of people who utilize these injections lose a significant amount of weight over several months.

Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in Mounjaro and Zepbound, while semaglutide is the active ingredient in weight loss medications such as Ozempic and Wegovy. Both of these drugs, as well as the compounding pharmacy we work with, have received FDA approval.

Those who enroll in our program also receive ongoing supervision from a physician and support from our care team.

What Is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compound Semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is a drug prescribed for a specific patient and made at a compounding facility licensed by the FDA or a state pharmacy board. Compounded drugs must be checked for potency, sterility, and purity, and the ingredients must be sourced from FDA-approved vendors.

Compounding pharmaceuticals is lawful, but because they are not mass-produced for the general public, they do not require FDA pre-market approval. Instead, they are developed in response to specific requests from medical practitioners. As a result, the dosing and administration techniques for these prescriptions may differ from those of commercially available brand-name drugs.

About Semaglutide Injections

cricle

Semaglutide belongs to the class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists. These drugs replicate the GLP-1 hormone's appetite-suppressing and digestion-slowing properties.

Wegovy* and Ozempic* both contain semaglutide which is FDA-approved, meaning rigorous clinical trials were conducted to ensure its efficacy and safety. Practitioners have less experience prescribing other weight loss drugs to help patients lose weight, and those drugs do not have the same success rate as semaglutide, either.

How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is self-injected subcutaneously once a week. The medication suppresses appetite by replicating hormones that naturally interact with your digestive system.

Semaglutide lowers caloric intake by slowing digestion and prolonging gastric emptying. Food passes through your stomach more slowly when you take the drug, so you feel fuller for longer and have less of an appetite.

Semaglutide also affects the brain region responsible for cravings and hunger, enabling users to further reduce the size and frequency of their meals.

WEEKLY INJECTIONS

Semaglutide is the main medicinal component of Wegovy* and Ozempic*, and it promotes weight loss when paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise. The Sanctuary Wellness Institute offers compounded semaglutide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a complete, physician-directed approach to helping people achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It consists of a personalized approach that can include dietary adjustments, physical activity, behavioral changes, and, if necessary, prescription drugs like semaglutide.

This therapy not only helps patients lose weight, but also teaches them how to keep it off.

Medical weight loss regimens have proven to be effective for many overweight people. These programs employ a tried-and-true weight-loss technique that extends beyond basic diet and exercise regimens. Many medical weight loss programs rely on FDA-approved medications like semaglutide to facilitate safe and consistent weight loss.

Your online consultation will be similar to a standard office appointment. More specifically, the doctor will examine your medical history and inquire about your weight loss goals. By being upfront and honest, you can provide them the information they need to establish your eligibility for semaglutide, rule out any contraindications, and help you set appropriate goals.

The cost of semaglutide injections varies depending on your region, the prescribed dosage, and whether or not your health insurance covers the prescription. Without insurance, you should budget about $800 to $1,000 per month.

Some Medicare programs and health insurance providers cover semaglutide injections, at least in part. Novo Nordisk also offers a patient assistance program for those who are struggling financially.

Semaglutide injections are available at The Sanctuary Wellness Institute's weight loss clinic in Chester County, PA. To allow for self-administration, we deliver our patients’ prescriptions straight to their homes.

When you receive your semaglutide prescription from Sanctuary, you’ll be able to complete the entire process online. Our patients can easily plan and attend their doctor’s appointments online, as well as get their semaglutide prescriptions delivered.

The time it takes to lose weight while using semaglutide varies greatly between individuals. However, research suggests that weight loss typically begins within the first few weeks of taking the medication.

The amount of weight you can lose in four weeks with semaglutide varies based on several factors, including diet, exercise, and your individual metabolic rate. However, clinical studies and patient reports suggest that, on average, individuals lose approximately five pounds per month on semaglutide.

That said, in the first four weeks, it's reasonable to expect modest weight loss as the body adjusts to the medication.

Semaglutide for weight loss is not appropriate for everyone. Individuals with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) and those who suffer from Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2) should avoid this medication due to the increased risk of thyroid cancer it would pose.

Additionally, semaglutide may not be suitable for people with a history of pancreatitis, gallbladder issues, or severe gastrointestinal disease. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also steer clear of semaglutide, as its effects on fetal and infant health are not fully understood

Semaglutide injections have side effects, just like any other drug. The most common ones are stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These symptoms normally subside as your body responds to the drug.

However, before using semaglutide, you should consult a physician. You should also contact them if you experience any severe or long-term side effects after starting your treatment
