Get the “skinny” on Ozempic

Being “large” has become so normalized in our culture…

That nearly 50 percent of people don’t even realize they’re overweight.

But here’s a reality check for you…

Obesity is a disease.

And the only way we’re going to turn the tide on the growing obesity epidemic is to talk about it… acknowledge there’s a problem… and present solutions.

So, without further ado, allow me to provide the “skinny” on the wonder drug helping people shed pounds: Ozempic.

A sought-after side effect

I’ve been talking to you about Ozempic for a while now. It’s a prescription drug designed to treat Type 2 diabetes. And like most pharmaceuticals, it comes with some side effects.

But there’s one effect folks just can’t get enough of: Weight loss.

For this reason, Ozempic is often prescribed “off label” for weight management.

Of course, for my patients, I always start with lifestyle prescriptions. But I have started prescribing Ozempic to those who consistently fail to maintain a healthy weight by following a healthy, balanced diet and committing to regular exercise.


Because I have witnessed it help accomplish the unthinkable.

By “normalizing” appetites, many important health metrics—including blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, and more—stabilize and improve with very little effort.

And that’s not all… there’s much more “good” behind the Ozempic story. But for now, let’s shift our focus to some other factors you should consider before taking the drug.

Just a piece of the puzzle

As with any drug, there are less common (but more serious) side effects to consider…

Things like pancreatitis, gastroparesis, bowel obstruction, gallstone attacks, and bile duct blockages.

And of course, since semaglutide (the active ingredient in Ozempic) is so new, we don’t know yet about the long-term side effects. (Just keep in mind this is true for all new drugs.)

In addition, if you’re taking Ozempic “off-label” for weight loss, it’s likely that Medicare or other insurers won’t cover it. So, it can get very expensive.

I talk about all of this, and more, in the current issue of my monthly newsletter, Logical Health Alternatives. And I promise, you won’t want to miss it!

With all of the swarming headlines about Ozempic—and the global obesity epidemic growing with each passing year—this is information you’ll want in your back pocket. And especially before your next physical with your physician.
