Wellness That Supports All of Who Your Teen is Becoming
Teens are not little kids anymore and they’re not adults either.
This in-between stage can be really difficult years in so many ways. Physical changes are one thing, but it is critical to factor in psychological, social and emotional development as well. We get them. We got this!
REAL Services For Teens
Medical Weight Loss Solutions
Parents, has your doctor told you that your child needs to lose weight to be healthier? Are you a teen struggling with your weight? Do you want to get rid of unwanted belly fat? Has your weight caused you to worry about finding friends? Are you being teased? Do you feel like your not happy with your body?
Where do adults learn nutrition habits? From their childhood experiences in the home with parents or other caregivers. Very often they learned the same way. So often, we see adults and therefore teens, who never learned basic nutrition principles- not even from school.
Are you ready to start getting more physically active but don’t know where to start? Start with a REAL fitness assessment. We evaluate your current fitness level and develop a fitness plan to gradually get you to your fitness goals.
Preventive Health Screenings
While most kids have lots of pediatric doctor visits, many teens do not. And even if they do, many teens don’t discuss their weight with their doctor. We want to help with the wellness screenings that may not be done in a traditional pediatric setting.
We know how frustrating it can be to feel like something isn’t quite right, yet, you’re told nothing is wrong. We do special tests that may not be done in traditional offices to sort through a variety of symptoms to get to the root of the problem.
Some teens have trouble with hormones and these may cause conditions that result in excessive weight gain, abnormal menstrual cycles, unusual or excessive hair growth patterns, males with fatty breast tissue or abnormal sized genitalia. These can be signs of underlying medical conditions that are often overlooked, misdiagnosed or misunderstood.
Behavior Modification Support
If your teen needs help understanding how to coordinate a healthy lifestyle and still fit in with their peers, we can help. Being a teen with healthy goals can be hard sometimes when others around them may not have the same goals. We understand how important and influential the teen social environment can be. We help teens with strategies to enjoy both a healthy lifestyle and their friends and family.
The needs of the growing teen body can be the most selective time of growth since being a newborn. It’s important that teens have the right nutrients, vitamins and amino acids to support their growing body. Winging it or guessing on the vitamin aisle or online can be time consuming and still you may not be getting what is needed.
Life Coaching and Personal Development
Every stage of life brings new opportunities and new challenges. Teenage years are especially full of ups and downs transitioning between being a kid and becoming a young adult. Self-doubt, uncertainty about the future, anxiety and frustration that turns into negative self-talk and chronic complaining.
