Exploring Ozempic for Weight Loss: Pros, Cons, and How It Works

Exploring Ozempic for Weight Loss: Pros, Cons, and How It Works

March 20, 2024

Ozempic has been heralded as quite the miracle drug for weight loss. A variety of different organizations — including Weight Watchers — have jumped on the bandwagon to promote it. Why? Does it work, and if so, how?

This week on A Different Perspective, Dr. Patrick Flynn, DC, answers these questions and more: What is Ozempic? How do semaglutides and GLP-1 impact the body, and what can happen if you have too much or too little of either? What are some ways you can support your body either way? Are there other solutions for weight loss?

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Ozempic side effects: Every action has benefits and consequences. What are the benefits and consequences of taking Ozempic? What are the benefits and consequences when you don’t?
  • Asking the right question: If the body isn’t functioning properly, it means something needs to be addressed. If the body believes it should hold on to excess weight, what’s causing this response?
  • Immune response and the gut: If the body works like a Swiss watch and everything impacts all other processes and organs, how do the immune response, gut, and GLP-1 affect one another?
  • GLP-1 and diet: GLP is a hormone your body needs. What foods can you add to support your body through weight loss?
  • Allulose: What is this substance? How does it impact your body, and how can you get it?

Doc also covers additional questions and announcements in his Last 10%. These topics include:

  • The customer creates the demand
  • Intermittent fasting
  • Does broccoli cause cancer?
  • The upcoming Leadership & Longevity Seminar
