The Sayana Reboot Program

The ultimate goal of this medical program is to lose weight.

I’ve designed it with the idea that the three modalities I’m trained in (internal, obesity, and functional medicine) all have methodologies that can assist with weight loss, but none of them are complete on their own. Hence, the Sayana Reboot Program.

It’s a holistic approach to weight loss that combines:

All of these factors can have a direct impact on both your short-term and long-term weight loss success.

Through regular consultations with the providers at Sayana Medical, including with our integrative health coaches, we will work together to create a plan that will help you stick with your dietary and lifestyle goals.

First, we will get baseline blood work samples that will help identify hormonal imbalances that could be affecting your weight, such as thyroid, adrenal, and insulin levels.

We’ll also run labs for inflammation markers and food allergies. If you have an unknown autoimmune issue or food allergy, eating food that triggers an inflammatory response will prevent any long-term, meaningful success on a weight loss program.

As indicated, and only if the patient is interested, pharmaceutical medications can be prescribed. Within our arsenal of medications are:

  • Phentermine
  • Phendimetrazine
  • Contrave
  • Medications known to improve insulin sensitivity such as GLP 1 agonists.

These medications are covered by most PPO insurance plans or in the range of around $20 per month. If you do qualify to take Phentermine or Phendimetrazine, an EKG within the last six months will be required, or we are able to perform EKGs in our office for $20.

At every office visit with a provider during this program, you’ll receive a Bioimpedance Measurement (BIA), which measures your body fat in relation to lean body mass. That will help us understand more about your body fat and muscle composition and your hydration levels.

VITAMINS

Depending on the results of your blood work, we will together evaluate what vitamins and supplements may be beneficial to your system as the program gets underway. Among the vitamins I commonly recommend to augment weight loss efforts are:

Vitamin D: Studies show that Vitamin D can help with harmonizing thyroid levels and preventing fat accumulation. Additionally, deficiencies in Vitamin D can be linked to increased mental health issues and low energy and mood.

Chromium: This vitamin has been known to assist in increasing the effectiveness of your body’s insulin production and help even out glucose levels. By evening out sugar levels, weight loss.

Fish Oil: The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil could have anti-inflammatory effects and help increase hormones that help regulate food intake. Additionally, omega-3s have shown a correlation with lower blood pressure, prevention of blood clots, and joint pain.

You may purchase the above in the Reboot Lite Bundle at this link.

For those who have elevated inflammation and/or insulin levels, I recommend replacing the chromium with Diaxinol, adding Inflammation support and 5htp.

Diaxinol: Supports healthy glucose metabolism and reduces carb cravings.

Inflammation support: Helps modulates inflammatory responses and supports healthy lymphatic drainage, reduces inflammatory markers to support weight loss.

5HTP: Helps to support Serotonin and increase satiety which helps with weight loss. A safe alternative to L-tryptophan, L5HTP (L-5-hydroxytryptophan) is a precursor to serotonin, supporting serotonin levels while respecting the body’s ability to self-regulate synthesis.

This formulation also comes in the Sayana Reboot Advanced Bundle.

LENGTH OF THE PROGRAM

At Sayana Medical and Wellness Center we want to paint a realistic picture of how long participation in the Reboot Program might take.

We want to paint a realistic picture of how long participation in the Reboot Program might take. In order to create sustainable habits that you can carry forward, the amount of time you’ll need to spend in the program will depend on how many pounds you need to lose.

You’ll spend at least three months in this first phase of the program, but up to 12 months. A framework we often use:

After the completion of this active phase of weight loss, we recommend that you join our maintenance program. This is where you’ll check-in monthly to discuss your ongoing lifestyle changes and track your weight loss goals. By scheduling in monthly accountability appointments, you’ll be setting yourself up for success and a faster opportunity to catch yourself if habits start slipping while life gets busy.

Maintaining a healthy weight for your body and mind is a lifelong journey and this program is designed to help take the first steps.

  1. In order to appropriately evaluate your needs, vitals, and expected program timeframe, we charge $250/month for the initial program consultation. 

This includes: 

    • An initial consultation with a provider at Sayana Medical either in person or online (your preference)
    • A BIA (a measure your body fat and muscle) 
    • One Lipotropic amino injection 
    • A telemedicine appointment with one of the Sayana Medical health coaches, usually 1-2 weeks after the initial consult  

2. Depending on how much weight you’ll need to lose, the costs would then be on a monthly basis for Phase 1 of the program. 

    • If you are only expected to need three months of the program, we would charge a monthly fee of $250. 
    • Additional costs will include the costs of any supplements—  either the Reboot Lite Bundle which includes Vitamin D, Chromium, and high-potency fish oil, or the full Reboot Advanced Bundle which includes Vitamin D, high-potency fish oil, Diaxinol, 5HTP and Inflammation Support.  
    • Prescription medication if indicated (additional cost of up to $20 or can be covered by most PPO insurances)
    • Patients can get additional (1 is included with the monthly fee) weekly Lipotropic amino injections at a cost of $35 for each or $30 each in a series of 6 ($180). 
    • Cost of any lab work or other diagnostic tests needed (can be billed through insurance). The lab work recommended includes thyroid and adrenal hormones, inflammatory markers, insulin, and food sensitivities.  The cost of these (direct pay) is $330 if done at our office.  For food sensitivities alone it is $190.

3. Once you reach your maintenance phase, we encourage our patients to check in with us monthly. These check-in visits are $180 and include monitoring your vitals and a visit with one of our providers with any prescription refills if needed. 

4. For those patients who want more frequent monitoring we do offer Reboot Advanced which is weekly visits with a provider and a health coach.  2 visits with a Provider and 2 visits with a health coach alternating per month. The cost of this is $500 a month.

It is not necessary to do blood work, however it is prefered if you do, so that we may understand any hormonal imbalances such as thyroid or adrenal issues, elevated inflammatory markers and food sensitivities at onset so we can treat these immediately rather than you hitting a plateau. These can be partially covered with most PPO insurances, or you can get them done at your primary care provider’s office.  If you choose to do them with us, the cost is $330

We would like you to come in for at least one visit to get your vitals and BIA measured, but if you prefer doing all visits virtual you can. For any medications that could affect your blood pressure, we will need you to get a BP cuff at home.
