Ozempic and Holistic Wellness: A Comprehensive Approach to Type 2 Diabetes Management at Wellthy Soul

At Wellthy Soul, we are steadfast in our commitment to providing a comprehensive and holistic approach to health, particularly in the management of Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Our belief is clear: semaglutide medication, should only be considered after or in conjunction with a dedicated period of holistic coaching. 

A study on semaglutide medication

In a 2022 study featured in Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism A Journal of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, the study, “Weight regain and cardiometabolic effects after withdrawal of semaglutide: The STEP 1 trial extension”, found that two-thirds of semaglutide medication users regained their weight after 12 months post drug intervention.  

Patients will most likely regain their weight without proper wellness education. In our philosophy, integrating these drugs without prior health coaching is not the optimal path to lasting wellness and weight loss.

What is Semaglutide Medication?

Semaglutide is a medication belonging to the class of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. In the marketplace, these are often known as medications named Ozempic, Mounjaro, or Tirzepitide. It is primarily prescribed for the management of Type 2 diabetes. This medication mimics the action of GLP-1, a natural hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. By stimulating insulin secretion and reducing the production of glucose by the liver, semaglutide helps lower blood sugar levels in a controlled manner. Additionally, it slows down the emptying of the stomach, leading to a feeling of fullness and reduced appetite. Often administered through injections, semaglutide has shown promising results in improving glycemic control. This can be a valuable tool in the comprehensive treatment of Type 2 diabetes when used as part of a carefully managed healthcare plan.

The Significance of Holistic Coaching

Holistic coaching forms the cornerstone of our approach to health and wellness. Over a span of 2-12 months, our clients, typically busy women over 40 dealing with the stresses of executive roles and motherhood, engage in a transformative journey. Our coaching encompasses functional medicine, whole food nutrition, safe fitness, time management, positive mindset work, and soul work.

This period is vital for instilling a deep understanding of how to fuel the body properly. We work closely with our clients to empower them with the knowledge and tools necessary for sustainable lifestyle changes. This isn’t just about managing immediate symptoms but about cultivating habits that promote long-term health and vitality.

Strategic Use of Semaglutide Medication

While semaglutide medication shows promise in Type 2 diabetes management, we advocate for their use only during or after the foundation of holistic coaching has been laid. These drugs should not be employed as a standalone solution. Instead, they are integrated strategically into the treatment plan after careful consideration and collaboration with healthcare providers.

Why Semaglutide Medication Shouldn’t Stand Alone

At Wellthy Soul, we recognize that medication alone is not the answer. It’s part of a larger picture that includes lifestyle choices, nutrition, and overall well-being. Without the groundwork of holistic coaching, the potential benefits of semaglutide medication may be compromised and weight regained once the drug use is discontinued. This is proven.

Patients need to comprehend not only the immediate effects of medication but also the long-term impact on their health. This understanding is crucial for navigating the journey to a medication-free life successfully.

Empowering Patients for Lifelong Wellness

The ultimate goal of our approach is to empower individuals to take control of their health and thrive independently of drugs and medication. For clients adamant about introducing semaglutide medicine during or after a period of holistic coaching, we will ensure that our clients are well-prepared for life beyond medication.

Our clients learn to navigate the intricacies of nutrition and holistic wellness during their coaching journey. This knowledge becomes their compass, guiding them even when medications are no longer a part of the equation.

In Conclusion to Ozempic and Holistic Wellness

At Wellthy Soul, we advocate for a strategic and personalized approach to Type 2 diabetes and obesity management. This transformation can certainly be made without the use of medication and we see it every day in our client’s journeys. Holistic coaching is not just a prerequisite; it’s a fundamental step toward lasting wellness. Our mission is clear: to guide women over 40 through a transformative health journey that empowers them to not only manage diabetes effectively but to thrive in holistic health for years to come.
