Our Medical Weight Loss Program in Media, PA

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

Participants in our medical weight loss program use compounded semaglutide and tirzepatide injections, which dampen appetite and suppress cravings to promote weight loss. The vast majority of people who receive these injections lose a significant amount of weight over the course of several months.

Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in weight loss medications such as Mounjaro and Zepbound, while Ozempic and Wegovy contain semaglutide. The FDA has approved both of these medications, as well as the compounding pharmacy with which we collaborate.

Our program also provides ongoing physician supervision and care team support.

What is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compound Semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is semaglutide that is prescribed to a specific patient and produced at a compounding facility licensed by the FDA or a state pharmacy board. The components of compounded medications must come from vendors that have received FDA approval, and such drugs must be tested for potency, sterility, and purity.

It is legal to compound drugs, but FDA pre-market approval is not necessary because such drugs are not mass-produced for the general public. Rather, they are manufactured in response to particular requests from healthcare professionals. Because of this, the dosages and methods of administration for these prescriptions can differ from those of name-brand medications that are sold commercially.

About Semaglutide Injections


Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist. Such drugs mimic the GLP-1 hormone's ability to diminish hunger and delay digestion.

FDA-approved semaglutide, which has undergone thorough clinical research to assure efficacy and safety, is the primary component of both Wegovy* and Ozempic*. Other medications for weight loss don't have the same track record as semaglutide, and doctors also have less familiarity with them.


How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is subcutaneously self-injected once per week. Thanks to the medication's ability to slow digestion and gastric emptying, users consume fewer calories. Food moves through your stomach more slowly when you take the medication, which prolongs feelings of fullness and reduces appetite.

Additionally, semaglutide affects the part of the brain linked to hunger and cravings, giving users more control over the size and frequency of their meals.


Compounded Semaglutide


As the primary pharmacological component of Wegovy* and Ozempic*, semaglutide promotes weight loss when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Compounded semaglutide is available from the Sanctuary Wellness Institute.
