adrenal fatigue

  1. WHAT YOUR ADRENAL GLANDS ARE – The adrenal glands are small structures attached to the top of each kidney. The human body has two adrenal glands that release hormones into the bloodstream that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, and other key functions of your body, including response to stress. And when it comes to stress, there’s an epidemic of it these days. We’re “on”, all the time.
  1. STRESS CAN MAKE A MESS OF YOUR ADRENAL GLANDS – That mess is what’s called adrenal fatigue. Some have questioned if adrenal fatigue is actually a real disease. It’s not. What it is, is a medical disorder or syndrome. It is said to occur when the adrenal glands have become overtaxed by excess cortisol release that is a result of intense stress and can no longer produce levels of cortisol necessary for optimal body function.
  1. CORTISOL IS A REAL KICKER – Cortisol is actually referred to as the “stress hormone”. On it’s good side, it activates our fight-or-flight response which is great in case a saber tooth tiger should show up in a fast-food parking lot you should be parked in. Cortisol is what gets you out of there pronto. But long-term activation of the stress response system and overexposure to cortisol can disrupt almost all your body’s processes. On top of everything, excess cortisol in our system can also make us feel more stressed, causing a troublesome feedback loop.
  1. JUST THINKING ABOUT ADRENAL FATIGUE IS EXHAUSTING – If you’re tired of being tired all the time and can’t figure out why, you could be one of the estimated 60% of adult Americans who at some point in their lives will experience some level of adrenal fatigue. And not know what in the world is going on with them. Because there’s a lot more going on than they could imagine. The symptoms can be staggering.
  1. YOU CAN’T WAKE UP AND YOU CAN’T GET BACK TO SLEEP WHEN YOU DO – You know that “can’t drag your ass out of bed feeling?” When you don’t even have the energy to toss the alarm out the window? You know that feeling when you do wake up but it’s somewhere between 1 and 3 am and your eyes won’t close again? You do if you have adrenal fatigue.
  1. YOUR MOOD CAN BE IN FOR SOME SERIOUS SWINGS – With adrenal fatigue, you can feel like the day is one long series of intermittent crashes.
  1. BRAIN FOG IS ALWAYS ON THE HORIZON – It’s more than just forgetting where your phone is. It’s forgetting…well, just forgetting.
  1. WELL, YOU JUST WON’T BE INTO IT – Stop searching for your libido. With adrenal fatigue, it can go on hiatus.
  1. YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM CAN TAKE A HIT – Masks may be off, but there are a lot of other buggers out there that could attack at any time. Even a bad cold is not a good thing to go through. And lest we forget the flu.
  1. SALT CRAVINGS COME OUT OF NOWHERE TO BE FOLLOWED BY ATTACKS OF THE SUGAR MONSTER – Bring on the chips, the cheese sauce, the nachos, the bacon. The more the better. Wait…make that the cookies, the candy, the cake, the frosting without the cake…don’t stop now…
  1. YOUR SKIN WILL FEEL LIKE YOU’RE IN THE SAHARA – So long soft skin no matter how expensive your moisturizer.
  1. YOUR BELLY COULD GET JELLY – “Yikes” would be an understatement.
  1. YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE ALL THESE SYMPTOMS TO HAVE ADRENAL FATIGUE – This isn’t a matter of check all the boxes. And many of these symptoms can be symptomatic of other illnesses. It’s infuriating. Most primary care doctors aren’t really familiar with adrenal fatigue. So you might actually be treated for the wrong thing. For example, your doctor may think you’re just depressed and whip out an RX for Prozac.
  1. THERE IS HELP – And it can be summarized in three simple words; Thrive Health Solutions. Getting a real diagnosis is the very important first step to getting the help you really need to address adrenal fatigue. And the medical experts at Thrive have years of experience treating patients with all sorts of hormone issues. Adrenal fatigue is just one of them. Before anything else, Thrive treats you with compassion and understanding. They listen to you, never dismissing anything you have to say. Adrenal fatigue requires a personalized treatment plan, and you can trust that is exactly what you’ll get. Want to get back to feeling your best?

Weight Regain - Can Be A Roller Coaster


Gaining and regaining weight can be a scary ride. You lose weight, and then whoosh, the numbers on the scale shoot up. So you hold your breath and determine to lose it. 20 pounds up. 20 down. 30 up. 15 down. You’ve lost and gained more pounds than you can remember. It adds up. Up is a downer. Down makes you feel up. The numbers go up. Hope shoots down. According to studies, anywhere from 80% to 95% of people who lose weight regain it. And when you regain lost weight, you’re actually going to gain a higher percentage of fat mass than you started with. You want to scream.


Crash diets, are more like crash and burn. (So don’t burn all your “fat” clothes). One reason weight regain happens after some of these crash diets, is because the often extreme diet responsible for the initial weight loss is too difficult to sustain long term. To compound the issue, many crash dieters can become preoccupied with food and disconnected from their internal hunger and fullness cues, which can also lead to weight regain. As soon as you start losing weight, your body suddenly wants it all back. It can’t tell the difference between intentional weight loss and being struck by famine. So it goes into survivor mode, lowering your metabolism and stimulating your appetite to preserve fat stores. Not for the faint-hearted.


Weight lifts and plunges can lead to some frightening health issues, too.

Your heart races. Literally. All the time. Which elevates your blood pressure and can put you at an elevated risk for heart disease and strokes.

Your cholesterol skyrockets. High LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, or high levels of triglycerides (Dyslipidemia) make things even worse.

It gets you to your bones. Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

You feel like you can’t move. Body pain and difficulty with physical functioning.

Your insides feel inside out. You can’t sleep. You can end up deep in depression or other mood disorders.

You feel like you’ve run out of energy. Type 2 diabetes is an impairment in the way the body regulates and uses sugar (glucose) as a fuel.

Chronic weight loss and gain can actually lead to obesity, which is linked to more than 60 chronic diseases.


Hormones are the tiny messengers in your body that carry information through your bloodstream to all the other parts of your body. They tell organs and tissues what to do, how to do it, and for how long. Every day, the brain receives signals from a team of hormones produced by different parts of the body, such as your stomach and intestines, called appetite hormones. Both your brain and these hormones contribute to the reasons you eat—for hunger, for pleasure, or simply because you decide to.


The team of hunger hormones lifting and plunging to make you keep losing and regaining the weight you lost include:

Called the “stress hormone”, increased levels can cause an increase in appetite and cravings for sweets, high-fat and salty foods.

Leptin is the “satiety hormone” which is supposed to tell your brain you don’t need to eat and can burn calories at a normal rate.

As Leptin levels decrease in response to calorie deprivation, levels of ghrelin, considered the “hunger hormone”, increase, stimulating appetite, increasing food intake, and making weight loss all the more challenging.

This is a reason why you may feel the instinct to eat “comfort food” like chocolate or ice cream during stressful times.

When a “sluggish” or underactive thyroid makes less of its hormones, your metabolism slows down so you won’t burn off calories as quickly.

Estrogen and Progesterone
When one or both levels fall, you will not only have a difficult time losing weight, but you will see your weight increase, despite your best efforts.

Unexplained weight gain is one of the first symptoms men experience, as low testosterone can affect how your body stores fat, especially around your stomach.


Calories matter, more to some people than others, but hormones matter more. And no one knows more about hormones and their stomach-churning, confidence plunging effect on losing and regaining weight over and over, than the understanding medical weight loss experts at Thrive Health Solutions. Thrive offers many individualized and highly effective weight loss plans that can help you lose from ½ to 1 lb. daily. Without starving. Thrive’s weight loss options include pharmaceutical HCG injections, custom-compounded fat-burning lipotropic injections, custom-compounded anti-obesity AOD64 capsules, and FDA-approved appetite suppressants. Thrive is all about finding what’s right for you. So they work closely with you to maximize your weight loss. And make sure you keep it off.

Weight Gain, 28 hashtags

#hatefeelingfat – Stop Weight Gain

#dietingagain #enoughalready #whatswrongwithme #tossthescale

Here’s the thing about how to stop weight gain…it’s not just that your clothes don’t fit, it’s that you feel like your expiration date has expired. You’re about as enticing as curdled milk, as productive as products marked “use before 2014”. Everything is off when you can’t get the weight off. And boy have you tried. Diet after diet. The more you think about it the more you gain. So you starve yourself. Then you treat yourself to everything naughty and delicious and calorific that you think you deserve. Then comes the guilt. You pinch, and it’s way more than an inch. Sometimes you can do everything right and still can’t stop weight gain. Something’s got to be wrong.


#lose #gainitback #nokidding #notfair

It often feels like there are two distinct phases of weight loss; one where you’re losing the weight and then another where you can’t stop weight gain. If you ever feel that way, you’re in good company. There are no exact numbers, but some estimates suggest that anywhere from 80 percent to 95 percent of people who lose weight regain it. And it’s not just because they dive headfirst into mountains of Milky Ways and mint chocolate chip. As soon as you start losing weight, your body suddenly wants it all back. It can’t tell the difference between intentional weight loss and being struck by famine. It immediately goes into protective mode, lowering your metabolism and stimulating your appetite to preserve fat stores.


#denial #stressedout #deprivedanddepressed #giveup

When it comes to dieting, “Just Do It” turns to “Just Don’t Want to Do It”. You’ve been through the weight loss wringer and you’re wiped. Which can lead to mindless munching, too many Door Dashes, too much sugar, too many processed foods. You don’t get enough sleep. Probably because you’re exhausted from all the running back and forth from the TV to the fridge from constantly having to choose whether or not to deprive yourself—eat it, don’t eat it, eat just a little, skip it altogether. Oh, and all that running doesn’t count as cardio. Life is all so stressful, you just want to stop weight gain. Well, guess what? High levels of the stress hormone cortisol have been shown to increase hunger and your desire for highly palatable, calorie-dense foods, which can cause weight gain. We’re going to get to more of these troubling hormones in a sec.


#bigrisks #jellybelly #obese #ohno

Starving, excess weight, excessive dieting, and not eating right can take a big bite out of your life. It could all lead to some serious issues; high blood sugar, high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, sleep apnea, stomach problems, and a weakened immune system. You knew being overweight wasn’t good for you, but probably didn’t realize just how much.


#whackedout #notyourfault #fatandhormones #makeyougain

Your hormones, of which there are 150 or so swimming through your bloodstream, affect every cell and organ in your body controlling different functions that include weight. These hormones are thyroid, leptin, insulin, estrogen, cortisol, progesterone, testosterone, and ghrelin, known as the “hunger hormone”. It’s a delicate balance. When any of these hormones are out of balance, your body will see it. In the mirror. So what can you do about it? Well, get ready to zip those jeans up, because the answer is easy.


#theyknowhormones #hcgweightloss #hcginjections #loseweightfast

The hormone experts at Thrive Health Solutions have more than 20 years of experience helping people balance their hormones in order to stop weight gain.

Thrive has a selection of diet plans that work with each individual’s lifestyle and food preferences. But they’ll discuss it all in detail. With the Thrive HCG v 3.0 plan, you can expect to lose from ½-1 pound per day! We don’t have to tell you how amazing that would feel.

It’s time to get the body that really belongs to you. Thrive Health Solutions is exactly what you should put on your plate.




2020 is finally gone and it is time to get rid of that 2020 “20” and lose weight. In 2020, the ball dropped in March. It was crazy. There we were, cocooned in oversized sweats. Searching for a new pet. Hunting for elusive toilet paper. Couldn’t spend time with loved ones. Egg and Cheese McMuffins with crispy hash browns and a side of Griddles became the Breakfast of Champions. Our minds wandered aimlessly, and had to ask for directions home. But it is 2021 and time to move on, make new year’s resolutions. But this year counts more than ever. We need to start fresh, lose weight, learn new things, look and feel younger, take better care of our health. And, Thrive Health Solutions is here to help your 2021 thrive.


Let’s take a look at what could make keeping our resolutions as seemingly difficult as Congress arriving at a Stimulus Package.

When it comes to losing weight:

  • Grubhub and DoorDash have become family
  • I ran past the Covid “15” months ago, and that was my only cardio

When it comes to learning new things:

  • Every day is cloudy with a good chance of constant brain fog
  • I wish I could social distance from depression

When it comes to looking and feeling younger:

  • Mirror, mirror on the…nope, not looking in any mirror soon
  • My “not tonight, hon” has turned to don’t bother asking

And finally, when it comes to taking better care of your health:

  • My sleep is so insufficient I’m not just counting sheep, I’m naming them
  • I could be woke if I wasn’t so exhausted


Forget resolutions. For every negative thought and behavior, make a new, positive… let’s call it “goal”.  Think, “I hope I will, I have the will, I know I will.” And keep the message on repeat.

When it comes to losing weight

  • Never step on the scale blindfold again
  • Fill your plate with motivation. Have seconds. Even thirds

When it comes to learning new things:

  • Drop guilt at the airport with a one-way ticket
  • Aim for a glass that’s more than half full (and not with tequila or gin)

When it comes to looking and feeling younger:

  • Set up your cells for success
  • Tell wear-and-tear where to go

And when it comes to taking better care of your health:

  • Put the brakes on stress
  • Make your immune system soar
  • Turn your inner athlete into a beast

And let the caring, understanding medical experts at Thrive Health Solutions help you turn things around.


But the experts at Thrive Health Solution can. Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers swimming with determination throughout your bloodstream, telling your cells and organs what to do. When they are out of balance, the messages they send are chaotic and can cause health issues from hair loss to bone loss, depression to diabetes, erectile dysfunction to heart disease. But with BHRT pellets and other therapies, we’ve got you covered.


That’s our number one goal at Thrive. And we’ve got a number of ways to help you get there beyond just hormone balancing. Our medical weight loss options, immune health, and anti-aging treatments are all cutting edge. Well-researched. Innovative. Safe. Effective. Affordable. You get results. You get confidence. You get a New You.


Literally, our online store makes it easy for you to take home a healthy taste of some of the ways Thrive can help you move forward, get fit, and feel like you’re ready to take on anything this strange new world can toss at you. We’ll help you thrive in 2021. And 2. And 3. Well, you get it…A good example? Instead of masking up when you go to the kitchen, our proprietary ThriveSlim™ and ThriveTrim™ capsules can help you resist the dreaded Covid-carbs, forgo the binge snacking while Netflix binging, and lose the weight you want without feeling deprived.

So if you want to lose weight, feel younger or whatever your health needs, Thrive is all about helping you be the best you can be. Call or text Thrive Health Solutions at (303) 790-8446 for an appointment now. Happy New Year. And Happy New You.




Oh, these scientists…just can’t speak human-talk. They can make this stuff more daunting than the SAT’s. Peptide AOD 9604, is a modified form of amino acids 176-191. Lost yet? Let’s start with a simple explanation and then go from there. AOD; Anti-Obesity Drug. (The 9604 part even Google couldn’t spit out) In 1990, a professor in Australia developed it with the intent of finding an anti-obesity drug that had true fat burning effects. Which brings us to the topic of fat and why a bunch of us get that way.


AOD 9604 today isn’t just about treating obese people. 32.5 percent of American adults are overweight. And what’s considered overweight varies from person to person. It all has to do with something called Body Mass Index (BMI) which is a bit complicated to get into here, especially as we are already trying to get into something called AOD 9604. Now about this “overweight” issue. This, you know all about. Puffy cheeks. Multiple chins. Fat that hangs precipitously over sweat pant elastic waistbands. It’s a love, no, make that lust affair with food. Since Covid 19 started it’s gotten worse as we’ve become fast friends with Doordash, Grubhub and Uber Eats for uber fat and fabulous Colorado goodies. Fast. Willpower has gone by the wayside as the numbers on the scale creep up. Help! Keep reading.


If you’ve been hearing about peptides for weight loss, you’ve been hearing right. So, a little peptides 101 here. Peptides are small proteins that communicate with the body in distinct ways, very similarly to hormones. They regulate most every known process and system in the body. Including the way your body metabolizes fat.


Back to anti-obesity drug, AOD 9604 and its role in burning that unwanted fat. Here’s a list of all that it can do. This you’re going to like:

  • Drastically reduces body fat
  • Increases calorie burn at high levels
  • Triggers fat release and causes break down (destruction) of your fat cells
  • Boosts your metabolism for long term
  • Reduces visceral fat (under muscle fat)
  • Prevents non-fatty foods from turning into body fat (no food storage weight gain from eating)
  • Decreases your appetite and cravings
  • No negative effects on blood sugar levels or tissue growth
  • Proven to have a direct reduction of belly fat
  • May help with bone and cartilage repair
  • Helps with muscle building and preserving


        Saddlebags and ballooning bellies are not equivalent. When it comes to body fat, location counts, and each year brings new evidence that the fat lying deep within the abdomen is more perilous than the fat you can pinch with your fingers. In most people, about 90% of body fat is subcutaneous, the kind that lies in a layer just beneath the skin. If you poke your belly, the fat that feels soft is subcutaneous fat. The remaining 10% — called visceral or intra-abdominal fat — lies out of reach, beneath the firm abdominal wall. It’s found in the spaces surrounding the liver, intestines, and other organs. Getting rid of your belly bulge is important for more than just vanity’s sake. Regardless of your overall weight, having a large amount of belly fat increases your risk of everything from type 2 diabetes to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and even colorectal cancer.


        At Thrive Health Solutions, their medical experts have been using the anti-obesity drug, AOD 9604 to great success with patients of all ages and sizes. Both men, and women. Many have tried to go the road alone, but it usually never works. They think the weight demon is out to get them and that they will never lose the weight. And more importantly, keep it off. Thrive understands. That’s why they work closely with each patient. One on one, you get their full attention. Thrive will be there with you along every step of your weight loss journey, helping in every way possible. Your overall health is as important to them as your weight loss. Peptide Therapy with AOD 9604 is an exciting, cutting-edge approach to safe weight loss. And Thrive Health Solutions is at the front. Call or text Thrive Health Solutions now to get started



        If you’re overweight, you’re not alone. In 2020, more than 70% of men and women are either overweight or obese, leading to a weight loss market worth a record $72 billion. The appeal of being able to lose huge amounts of weight fast is hard to resist. Which is why the temptation to use diet pills is so strong. But are the products you find online and over-the-counter safe? Let’s start with “absolutely not”, and go from there.

        FDA? NO WAY

        The makers of dietary supplements are responsible for ensuring the safety of their product and making honest claims about possible benefits. But because they aren’t regulated or required to be approved by the FDA, diet pill manufacturers can claim to be or do almost anything and no one can say otherwise. Even the wildest claims are never checked for accuracy. So where does that put you?


        Diet pills often use the word “natural” or “herbal”.  Says them, as we said above. Example: before being banned by the FDA in 2004, many diet supplements contained ephedra, an evergreen plant found in Central Asia and Mongolia–an herbal stimulant that was deemed too dangerous, in too many ways. Despite this, some diet pills still illegally use ephedra in their products. So much for “natural”. Actually, many diet pills contain a mind-numbing list of questionable substances. Some contain caffeine, capsaicin found in chili peppers, or chitosan, a fiber like substance derived from crustacean shells. Before you think “oh, that doesn’t sound too awful”, we’ll continue. Some diet pills have hidden ingredients that include antidepressants, steroids, pesticides, laxatives, anti-seizure medicines and toxic heavy metals. Because the manufacturers don’t have to list these ingredients on their product labels, dieters have no way of knowing that they were ingesting any of it.


        We’ll get right to some of the scary things that these thoroughly unproven pills can cause, because there’s no way around it:

        • Diarrhea
        • Kidney problems
        • Liver damage
        • Constipation
        • Vomiting
        • Rapid breathing
        • Seizures
        • Elevated blood pressure
        • Strokes
        • Heart attacks

        And that is just the tip of the iceberg depending on the product and your personal health.


        You’ve all heard the call of the snake oil diet pill salesmen. Calls that aren’t just unrealistic, they’re unending. Mass emails, pop up ads on your devices. Here are some you might have come across: Lose 60 pounds in 3 weeks. The product is free—you just have to pay shipping. Buy 2 bottles, get the 3rd free. Limited time only. Give us your credit card and we’ll ship you this amazing product every month at a huge discount. 100% money-back guarantee. And on and on. Sound familiar? There are roughly 8,000 diet pills and supplements out there and many are just old formulations that just keep resurfacing. Create a new flashy label and packaging, slap a new catchy name on it, advertise using a Thesaurus of inspiring words and dig up some fake testimonials from thin people who never needed to lose weight in their life. Bam! You’ve got yourself an all new more expensive diet pill whose only reason for being is to prey on your insecurities, give you false hope and beef up their bottom lines. Just as a final note, to make it a bit more relatable, in recent TikTok ads, scammers used fake news articles that falsely claimed to be from CNN and Fox News to make it seem as if celebrities are promoting certain diet pills. If ever there were hoaxes, there are some doozies.


        Time to get real. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, hope isn’t far away at Thrive Health Solutions. Among the many ways Thrive is dedicated to your overall health, medical weight loss is a large part of it. Thrive’s rapid weight loss options are highly successful, wholistic, cutting edge, medically developed and doctor guided. These options include pharmaceutical HCG, custom compounded fat-burning lipotropic injections, B12 injections, appetite suppressants and the new FDA approved AOD 9604 weight loss peptide. All well researched and developed for true safety and effectiveness. When combined with Paleo, Keto, intermittent fasting or Thrive’s proprietary 1200-calorie weight loss diet, you can lose from ½ to 1 lb. daily. It adds up. Where taking diet pills never adds up to anything that’s ever good. No matter which weight loss solution is right for you, at Thrive you’ll always have someone in your corner with ongoing support and assistance from our professional medical and support staff. If you’re ready to pop your last questionable diet pill, call or text Thrive Health Solutions now. And get ready for a new thinner healthy you.


        Funny how “stay at home” turned into “stay close to anything salty, sweet, gooey or otherwise fattening”. The world has been scary. Food has been soothing and comforting. Exercise went out the wayside for millions. The “Quarantine-15” became the meme of the moment–those 15 pounds or even more that showed up not only on the scale, but around your middle. Sweatpants became the fashion of the day. Zoom meetings meant only meeting from the waist up. Which meant the sweatpants could stay on. But it’s time to face your skinny jeans in the closet and facing that unwanted weight gain. Fortunately, HCG Injections are able to help.


        HCG. We’ll save you the time trying to figure that out. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. HCG is a human growth hormone, a chemical messenger that aids metabolism, cellular regeneration, immune, brain, libido, and other vital functions. Maintaining adequate HGH levels is crucial for a healthy mind and body. Just as an interesting aside, it is a hormone found present at high levels in early pregnancy. In 1954, it was proposed to be a weight loss tool for both men and women.


        HCG helps you lose weight? Yes, it does.

        HCG reduces appetite and curbs hunger so you eat and snack less? Yes, it does.

        HCG resets and boosts metabolism helping you lose large amounts of fat quickly and safely without losing lean muscle mass? Yes, it does.

        And what it also does is inject you with energy and an overall improved sense of wellbeing. Oh yes, bring it on.


        HCG injections when combined with a sensible weight loss diet can help you lose up to a pound a day. That’s right, a pound a day. HCG diets aren’t about counting calories, points or carbs. Or adhering to a diet that just doesn’t do it for you. It’s all about what is right for each individual. What works for them, not just in terms of weight loss, but in terms of their lifestyle, preferences and food tolerances. Keto. Paleo. Intermittent fasting. With HCG and a little willpower, they’ll work. At Thrive Health Solutions they’ve been helping patients lose weight with GCG injections for years. In addition to other diet plans, Thrive has their own HCG diet plan that allows 1,200 nutritious calories per day. Which still lets you lose up to a pound a day.

        What deprivation?


        Only HCG injections have been shown to adequately raise blood levels of HCG. Any other way of taking HCG, such as drops, pills, or sprays, are likely dissolved before ever reaching the blood, and they do not raise blood levels. This would be like taking nothing at all.

        Even more important to note, is that while you might find HCG injections online or over the counter, you can’t count on them being safe. Buying these products can put you at risk and jeopardize your health. The label may claim to contain certain ingredients but the product may not actually contain those ingredients. There is no oversight or laboratory testing.  And the product may even come from another country.

        GIVE HEALTH AND HAPPINESS A SHOT                                                

        Thrive Health Solutions uses only the highest quality, custom-compounded HCG pharmaceutical injections.  All made in the United States and laboratory tested. The experienced experts at Thrive are there for their patients in every way possible. They want to see them lose weight safely. But they also want to give them a plan they can stick to so that it becomes a way of life, rather than a one-shot attempt to drop unwanted pounds. They want to prevent unwanted pounds from piling back on. At Thrive Health Solutions HCG injections can give you a whole new outlook on food, a whole new outlook on life and shot of energy to let you live it to its best. The testimonials and before-and-afters on our website will tell you all you need to know. Call or text Thrive Health Solutions at (303) 790-8446 for an appointment now. And toss the sweatpants.



        The human body is an optimal environment for pathogens, such as bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses to thrive. The immune system works to limit these microbes’ access to the body and prevent them from growing and causing illness. Your immune system is ready for anything you can throw at it. But it can only handle so much. As the new coronavirus continues to spread across the country, washing hands for 20 seconds and practicing social distancing are key to preventing the spread of the virus. However, it’s also important to have a strong immune system that can fight back not just against Covid-19, but against any germs you may encounter. And you know they’re out there in force.


        There are many things that can work to suppress your immune system and considering what we’re all going through, some of these might apply more than ever:

        • Lack of sleep (pleasant dreams may be hard to come by)
        • Smoking (bad for you in so many ways)
        • Too few fruits and veggies (who’s actually been eating healthy?)
        • Alcohol (sales are skyrocketing as much as 90% in some places)
        • High fat diet (snack, snack, snack…)
        • Lack of exercise (raise your hands if this is you)
        • Stress (just having anxious thoughts can weaken your immune response in as little as 30 minutes)


        If you can do what’s good for you, then good for you. But regrettably, it’s not enough. Nor are any pills, potions or herbal preparations that claim to “support immunity” or otherwise boost the health of your immune system. So what can give your immune system a boost? Lipotropic or “Lipo” Injections that have been formulated to boost your immunity. Lipo Injections are often used to help lose weight by boosting fat metabolism. They also help remove cellular debris and can improve liver and kidney function which are imperative to your overall health. But the powerful combinations of essential amino acids, minerals and vitamins in Lipotropic Injections aid the body in promoting cellular health, detoxification, energy production and boosting immunity


        It’s not like you can suddenly go “I’ll boost my immune system one time and then I’m covered.” Keeping your immune system healthy year-round is imperative to preventing infection and disease. While we’re not taking business trips, holidays, or just going to visit someone now, we will, and airplanes are like flying petri dishes head to tail.

        Looking for the best way to lose weight? Just as an intro, we could stuff a smorgasbord of food idioms into this blog, but we’ll be meager; piece of cake, bad egg, smart cookie, big cheese, food for thought, in a nutshell, cream of the crop, bigger fish to fry, bring home the bacon, your goose is cooked…you get the idea. As obsessed as some foodies are with food, people trying not to be obsessed with food are on a scale that is shocking. Weight loss is a $66 billion-dollar industry, and one of the most advertised, according to U.S. Weight Loss & Diet Control Market. An estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year, and Americans spend $33 billion each year on weight loss products. Fat (or the lack of it) has become the boogieman of our time. Kids are counting calories before they even have any idea what a calorie really is. As they get older, it just gets worse. Ta-da! Enter Fad Diets. Not the best way to lose weight.

        But Thrive is! Everyone at Thrive Health Solutions Gets It.


        The Boston Medical Center reported that of the estimated 45 million American who are looking for the best way to lose weight, 50% of them use fad diets. So what, exactly, is a fad diet? Let’s put it this way…take thousands of people desperate to lose weight, toss some food choices and insane ideas (ones you’d normally laugh yourself sick at) into a hat, give it a catchy name, get a celebrity to endorse it if you can, pay people to post rave reviews on Amazon, hire the best people to find a way to advertise and market it, throw in some phrases like “you won’t believe” or “the only thing that’s ever worked” and you have the ultimate fad diet. Thing is, you lose a few pounds quick, people tell you, you look thinner, then you put it back on.

        At Thrive Health Solutions, They’ve Seen it All.


        A few bricks shy of a load, a few cards short of a deck-you get it—crazy, loony, absurd, whacked…so many yummy adjectives. (Sorry, can’t stop with the food language.) Here are what are considered some of the worst fad diets. And by far not the best way to lose weight.

        • Blood Type Diet– Your blood type cannot impact your diet any more than your astrological sign can
        • The Baby Food Diet– If a baby can grow up eating the mushy stuff, eating some definitely won’t hurt you, but guess what: you aren’t a baby
        • The Cabbage Soup Diet-The grandmother of all fad diets-GAS ANYONE?
        • The Cotton Ball Diet-cotton balls soaked in orange juice-that ought to leave a good taste in your mouth
        • Lunar Or Werewolf Diet– Fasting according to the lunar phases-hairy at the least
        • Sleeping Beauty Diet- If you’re asleep, you’re not eating. Unless you sleepwalk, of course
        • Tapeworm Diet- Ingest tapeworm eggs, let the tapeworm eat the food you consume once it gets to your intestines, and then, when you lose enough weight, get a doctor to prescribe you an anti-worm medication. Are you sick yet?
        • The Clip-Your-Nose-While-You-Eat Diet-Try eating and not breathing at the same time…
        • The Prayer Diet-Pray every night that you’ll lose weight. Sorry. No miracles here.

        Thrive Health Solutions Doesn’t Believe in Miracles.


        The fact is, there are no foods or pills that magically burn fat. No super foods will alter your genetic code. No products will miraculously melt fat while you watch TV or sleep. Some ingredients in supplements and herbal products can be dangerous and even deadly for some people. Fad or crash diets put stress on every part of your body from your kidneys to your heart to your brain. They can cause electrolyte imbalances, dehydration, muscle loss, hypoglycemia, nausea, diarrhea, lethargy, headaches, dizziness, hair loss, bad breath and a whole plate of other things bad for your body. Including the weight coming right back on so you start the whole vicious cycle again.


        So here’s the thing; if you are looking for the best way to lose weight safely and keep it off, there is a smart and easy option; Thrive Health Solutions. Thrive specializes in medical weight loss solutions. (So far from fad, it’s not even funny.) Not just one, but one created uniquely for you. One that considers your health history and goals. One that is medically supervised and medically sound. Thrive’s weight loss options include pharmaceutical HCG, custom-compounded fat-burning lipotropic injections, B12 injections and FDA approved appetite suppressants. When combined with Paleo, Keto, intermittent fasting or Thrive’s proprietary 1200-calorie weight loss diet, you can lose from ½ to 1 lb. daily. Weight that won’t creep back up without even realizing it. Not just because it’s healthy, but because it’s one you can stick to. More a way of life. Call Thrive Health Solutions for an appointment now. And forgo fad diets forever.


        You hear the word “fasting” and it probably doesn’t leave a good taste in your mouth. Starvation. Depravation. And it couldn’t be good for you, right? Wrong. If you want to lose weight, intermittent fasting is fast becoming one of the best, healthiest ways to do it. If you struggle with your weight or just find your jeans hard to squeeze into, you’ve probably tried a lot of different diets. And there are some crazy ones out there; juice cleanses, the baby food diet, the vision diet (you eat everything while wearing blue-tinted glasses), even the clip-your-nose-while-you-eat-diet. Hey, we couldn’t make these up if we tried. And with most of them, you’ll quickly gain back what you lost just from even looking at a bagel.


        Intermittent Fasting (IF) is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t specify which foods you should eat but rather when you should eat them. Studies show that intermittent fasting can be a very powerful weight loss tool. By making you eat fewer meals, intermittent fasting can lead to an automatic reduction in calorie intake, but it also changes hormone levels to facilitate weight loss. In addition to lowering insulin and increasing growth hormone levels, it increases the release of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine. Because of these changes in hormones, short-term fasting may increase your metabolic rate by 3.6–14%. Keep in mind, though; the main reason for its success is that intermittent fasting helps you eat fewer calories overall. If you binge and eat massive amounts during your eating periods, you may not lose any weight at all.


        While intermittent fasting helps you lose weight, just as importantly, it helps you gain some real health benefits to your entire body, including your brain. It can reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol, blood triglycerides, inflammatory markers, blood sugar and insulin resistance — all risk factors for heart disease. It can also stimulate certain brain hormones and may aid the growth of new nerve cells. It may even protect against Alzheimer’s disease.


        There are four different methods of intermittent fasting. The options give you flexibility and allow you to choose the one that will be easiest for you to stick to:


        This involves eating nothing for 24 hours twice a week. It does not matter what days a person fasts or even when they begin. The only restriction is fasting must last for 24 hours and on non-consecutive days.


        This entails eating very little for 20 hours each day. A person fasting in this way consumes all their typical food intake in the remaining 4 hours. Eating a whole day’s worth of food in such a short time can make a person’s stomach quite uncomfortable. This is the most extreme fasting method, and a person new to fasting may not want to start with this method.


        Originally created for weightlifters, 16/8 has gained popularity among other people who are interested in fasting. Unlike Eat-Stop-Eat and the Warrior Diet, fasting for 16/8 involves much shorter periods. For example, males who choose this method will fast for 16 hours and then eat what they want for the remaining 8 hours of the day. Females fast for 14 hours and eat what they want for the remaining 10 hours of the day. During the fast, a person must avoid eating any food but can drink as many no-calorie beverages as they like. Many people find the 16/8 method to be the simplest, most sustainable and easiest to stick to. Which is why it’s probably the most popular.


        A person on the 5:2 method eats 500 to 600 calories on two non-consecutive days each week. Some alternate-day fasting regimens add in a third day of fasting each week. For the rest of the week, a person eats only the number of calories they burn during the day. Over time, this creates a calorie deficit that allows the person to lose weight.


        It’s only natural that you might have questions about intermittent fasting; “Is skipping breakfast healthy? Will I feel sick? Will I be too weak to work? Can I take supplements while fasting?  Can I work out? Which method is right for me?” So where do you go to get real answers? Who can you trust to tell you what you need to know?
