How you can lose weight with B-12 Injections

B-12 Injections are used to create many positive outcomes for people’s health. These injections are most commonly known for increasing energy levels after people have reported feeling groggy, or sluggish, over extended periods of time.

As people begin to age, their energy levels can start to decrease. Along with energy levels, older individuals also report having a lower sex drive. B-12 is a perfect solution for these two problems and is a quick, but long-term, solution for these issues.

But did you know that in addition to increasing your libido and overall energy levels, B-12 Injections can do even more? This series of injections from DreamBody can also help you lose weight.

By combining B-12 injections with diet and exercise, you can be well on your way to losing 10-15 pounds by Labor Day.

Some of the ways B-12 injections can help you lose weight include:

• Combining B-12 with a diet plan
• Combining B-12 with an exercise regime
• Overall increase of energy and well-being

Before we break down exactly how B-12 injections can help you lose weight, we want to go over the different types of B-12 injections DreamBody offers its patients. The different levels that we offer all come with different benefits. Before you decide to try B-12 for yourself, be sure you know exactly what you are looking to get from this treatment!

There are 3 different levels of B-12:

1. The first level of B-12 injections we offer is straight B12 Methylcobalamin. This injection helps to increase the patient’s energy and promote a healthy immune system.
2. The second level of B-12 injections we offer includes amino acids, which help to break down fat.
3. The third level of B-12 injections we offer is called the Super B-12. It is a combination of Vitamin C, B-12, and all of the B vitamins. This injection helps promote a better immune system, decrease fat, and increase energy.

Combining B-12 With a Diet Plan

Dieting is the first step in the right direction when it comes to weight loss. However, some people have difficulty burning fat quickly, especially when they get older. Certain areas of our bodies are more stubborn, and some people’s genes make it more difficult for them to lose fat than others. There is nothing worse than dieting and being disciplined, yet seeing little or no results.

When you are trying so hard, you deserve to see the number on the scale drop and your pant size go down! If you are suffering from this problem, second or third level B-12 injections are the perfect solution for you. These types of injections help to get rid of fat faster than a regular diet will, and can help you lose weight faster than you thought possible!

Combining B-12 With an Exercise Regime

After choosing a diet plan, finding a good workout routine naturally follows. One thing people might not realize about their diet plan is that it can leave them feeling sluggish or tired, because their body is being deprived of its regular nutrients.

Especially with diets like the Atkins diet or the HCG diet, which focus on cutting out a particular aspect of food (carbs or fat), many people report initially feeling groggy or energy deprived, because their body isn’t used to this new type of food consumption.

The last thing you want to deal with when you are trying to lose weight is to feel too tired to exercise. Getting to the gym or going out for a run is a huge part of weight loss success, so this is where B-12 injections come in!

All 3 levels of our B-12 injections can be perfectly coupled with a diet plan. So when you are feeling tired, B-12 injections can give you the energy you need to exercise, and get through the day! Not only can B-12 help boost your energy levels, but it also helps burn fat faster than regular exercise alone can.

Overall Increased Energy and Well-Being

Nothing is more underrated in this world than the simple feeling of being healthy and well balanced. Small adjustments in your lifestyle can help achieve this goal, but if you have tried and tried to increase your energy with no success, B-12 is the answer to your prayers!

With B-12 injections, your immune system will be heightened; you will be sick less often and you can get out and be active on a regular basis. Simply being healthy enough to avoid the common cold and having enough energy to go out for a walk are things you can’t put a price on.

Almost anyone can be eligible to receive Lipotropic B-12. If you need an energy boost, are trying to lose weight, want a stronger immune system, or are simply looking for an increased quality of life, this is your one way ticket to get there.

There is no “catch” or downfall to this method of treatment, and it is a popular and simple way to fix problems that have been haunting you for years. Just think of the possibilities if you had a higher energy level, stronger immune system, and increased libido! These benefits may sound small, but it’s the little things that become crucial to an overall better wellbeing.

If you are interested in finding out more about B-12 injections, be sure to browse our site to get down to the nitty-gritty of what to expect out of this investment. Want to find out even more? Give us a call to to schedule a consultation! We will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you have. We can even help you decide what level of injections you need, and if coupling these injections with the HCG diet is the best option for you.

Why Summer is the Best Time for B-12 Injections

Why Summer is the Best Time for B-12 Injections

Why Summer is the Best Time for B-12 Injections

The time of year you’ve been waiting for is finally here: it’s officially summer! Summer can mean a lot of different things for you and your family. It means vacations, adventures, road trips, three day weekends and it also means trying to keep the kids occupied until August rolls back around.

With so much going on during the summer, keeping your energy levels high are essential. With trips to the airport, carpools to drop the kids off at camp, long distance drives in the car to get to the nearest beach, it’s no wonder why summer feels like it’s gone in the blink of an eye.

To make matters even worse for your energy levels, the extreme heat during Arizona summers is enough to make you feel exhausted just by doing the simplest tasks.

You may not have time to catch up on your sleep or allow yourself to take a day off to just relax. For those people who are struggling to maintain their energy levels during this time of the year, there is truly no better time to start B-12 injections.

If you aren’t familiar with B-12 Injections, the simple way to explain them is that they are concentrated doses of the vitamin B-12 that allow you to have higher energy levels and lose weight faster. There are countless benefits to receiving B-12 injections and they have become a proven method of weight loss.

So if you are looking for an excuse to have more energy this summer, here are a few reasons why summer might just be the best time for you to start B-12 Injections!

1. Travel
2. Extreme heat
3. Exercise
4. Vacation

1. Travel

It’s no secret that travel can take a major toll on your body and your energy levels. Whether you are taking a short road trip up to Flagstaff or you are flying across the globe, traveling is an exhausting activity that can make you vulnerable to sickness.

When you pile the whole family into the car and are scrambling to try and organize everything, your energy quickly becomes depleted. Since you are exposed to so many different people (especially at airports) when traveling, your risk for getting sick immediately escalates.

B-12 Injections can not only help you maintain energy levels when you take on these tiring endeavors, but they also help boost your immune system.

No one likes getting sick while traveling, so avoid the risk this season and take the proper precautions before hitting the road.

2. Extreme heat

As mentioned earlier, the heat in Arizona is enough to deplete you of energy. Doing yard work, or running errands become drastically more challenging when you are trying to accomplish these things in triple digit temperatures.

Even getting in the car and desperately trying to blast the air conditioning can be an exhausting task. With the sun constantly beating down on you and the temperatures never relenting, there are very few options available when it comes to attempting to find some reprieve from the summer heat.

A dip in the pool might help temporarily and frantically running from one air conditioned location to the next can only do so much good. Your life is too busy to be able to take the much needed break you deserve during the middle of the day, so avoid the possibility of exhaustion by investing in the solution of B-12 shots.

It won’t only help you get through your routine, but it will help everyone else around you! If you are positive and feeling good, you instantly improve the mood of all of your family and friends that you come in contact with. Who could possibly put a price on that?

3. Exercise

Much like your daily activities, exercising in the summer gets more challenging with each passing day. Regardless of whether you exercise indoors or outdoors, working out in the summer is no easy task. Fortunately, in addition to providing you with higher energy levels, B-12 Injections also help to boost weight loss.

During a time of year where dieting and exercising can be challenging, this simple solution can solve all of your problems. Not only do B-12 shots help you with your weight loss regime, but they will also help you from attempting extreme exercise during the brutal summer weather. When the weight comes off quicker, you won’t feel the need to be so hard on your body during workouts. Burn fat quicker and have more energy to accomplish your workouts.

4. Vacation

Vacationing should be filled with lots of rest and relaxation, right? Contrary to popular belief, vacationing can actually be more tiring than it is relaxing. Planning, packing, driving/ flying and then taking adventures once you have reached your destination can all take a toll on your body.

When you vacation, you are out of your element. Even though this can be a great thing, it can mess up your energy levels, your sleeping patterns and your eating habits. You become jet lagged, your diet probably consists of foods that aren’t very good for you, and your exercise routine becomes non-existent.

Once you get back home, you realize that you are completely burnt out and out of sync with your daily routine. Your first day (or week) back at work becomes a sluggish chore where you count down the hours until you can go home and take a nap. You continue to avoid working out because you feel so tired, and you are too exhausted to cook a healthy meal, so eating out becomes your go-to.

Everyone struggles with getting back in the groove once they return from vacation, but why not avoid this whole hassle with a quick fix? By getting regular B-12 injections, you not only avoid becoming exhausted when you return home form vacationing, but you also help to boost your energy levels while you are on your trip!

No more jet lag, no more grogginess. Just smooth sailing for you!

5 Ways to Lose Weight in the New Year

5 Ways to Lose Weight in the New Year

5 Ways to Lose Weight in the New Year

It’s been a month since New Year’s resolutions were set and you are (hopefully) still going strong with yours! Just one month of trying (and failing) to commit to a new habit such as joining a gym or going on a no-carb diet can be defeating, and leave you wanting to give up on your resolution altogether.

In fact, it can be so tempting to give up your New Year’s resolution that nearly 50 percent of people give up after just one month. Even more surprising is the fact that only 8 percent of people report achieving their resolution at the end of the year.
Considering how excited and inspired people are when they make their resolutions, it’s a sad sight to see when they abandon them so quickly. A healthy habit is just that: a habit. It is not something that you simply try out for a few weeks, and then call it quits when it gets tough. If you don’t think your specific diet or workout routine is working for you, give something else a shot! It’s no secret that in American culture there are a million and one ways to lose weight.

To help you stay committed to your resolution, we have come up with five ways to help you lose weight in the New Year. Whether you want to lose weight with good old fashioned work, or you would like a little medical help in the process, we have the perfect options for you and your body!

These 5 ways to lose weight include:
1. Diet
2. Exercise
3. Liposuction
4. Verju
5. B12 injections

1. Diet

This form of weight loss should come as no surprise to you. Unfortunately, the primary reason why so many people in the U.S. are overweight is due to their poor diet. With so many convenient, processed foods available in our grocery stores, it’s difficult to find items that are truly healthy. When you start throwing confusing diet fads into the mix like gluten-free or juice cleanses, it can make choosing a diet that much more difficult.

If you are a disciplined person who can handle creating a diet on your own, get out there and do some research on the best way to cut calories, carbs, and fats! There are endless resources that can teach you how to lose weight without the help of a program.

If you are like most people, you need a strict system that will hold you accountable. Take the time to check out all of your options and choose the one that works best for you. Researching on your own is the best place to start. Maybe NutriSystem is right for you, or maybe Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig is your best bet. Take the time to really read through the steps of the program and get advice from others who have tried it out! Chances are, you have a friend that has given one of these (or many of them) a shot. See what they have to say; ask them their likes and dislikes. Make an informed decision as to what you think would work best for your body.

2. Exercise

Another not so secret way to lose weight is with good old fashioned exercise. Most people cringe when they hear this word because they think of grueling runs on the treadmill or lifting weights at a gym.

Fortunately for you, we recommend finding other, more fun methods of exercising, rather than just joining the gym. In case you haven’t checked out the hundreds of options for exercising, this once dreadful task has actually become pretty fun! Things like pole dancing and speed walking are now popular forms of exercise. And there’s no better way to find out which works best for you than giving them a try!

Hot yoga, spin classes, rock climbing, and belly dancing are all viable options to lose weight and get in shape. So be sure to pick one that you think is fun, because the only way you will stick with an exercise routine is by making it something that you look forward to!

3. Liposuction

If you’re the type of person who has tried every which way to get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat, maybe it’s time to take a medical approach, instead of working so hard to diet and exercise without seeing any results.

Liposuction is always a good choice when it comes to getting rid of unwanted fat. Most people only think of morbidly obese people or Hollywood stars receiving liposuction, when in reality many fit and trim people seek out liposuction treatments on a regular basis.

At DreamBody, we offer our clients two different types of liposuction procedures that both yield great results. Hot laser and cold laser liposuction are a great way to lose those final few pounds in 2015. With how safe and hassle-free these procedures are, there is no reason to not give it a try!

4. Verju

Similar to liposuction, Verju is another extremely popular treatment to get rid of inches around your hips as well as pesky cellulite! Every woman understands just how unnerving cellulite can be. You can be a 24 year old woman who is fit and trim and still suffer from the same cellulite issues as an older, overweight woman. Fortunately, Verju is a simple, non-invasive procedure that requires no down time.

Verju is the most cutting edge technology that zaps your orange peel skin for good! Treat yourself this new year by getting rid of cellulite and making yourself feel that much more beautiful.

5. B12 Injections

One of the healthiest and easiest medical treatment options available to help you lose weight is B12 injections. Vitamin B12 is one of the primary vitamin contributors inside your body. It is responsible for maintaining proper functioning of the brain, as well as the entire central nervous system. One of the main jobs of B12 is to keep your energy levels high.

If you are someone who lacks energy and you just want a bit more pep in your daily mood, B12 injections are the perfect solution. Not only will this vitamin make you feel better on a daily basis, but it will help you accomplish your exercise goals as well. By increasing your energy levels, working out will be that much easier.

Now that you know all of the options that are available to you when it comes to getting fit and accomplishing your New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to get out there and do them! Start a new diet, get into a workout routine and make an appointment at DreamBody to see what treatments we offer that may be perfect for you.

Keep Up With the Holidays by Increasing Energy Levels with B-12 Injections

December 12, 2013

The holidays are here and that means never-ending shopping, wrapping, hiding of presents, cooking, cleaning and planning. Did we forget anything?

The days are probably starting to seem shorter and shorter, making it impossible to get everything done, without the help of constant energy drinks or cups of coffee that is. Well drop that energy drink and turn off the coffee maker; B-12 Injections can help to increase your energy levels, as well as work to improve your immune system, and let’s be honest, we can all use help with that once the temperatures start to drop and everyone starts getting sick!

Vitamin B-12 is among the primary vitamin contributors inside our bodies. Its key role is to correctly maintain the functioning with the brain and the entire central nervous program. Those are all pretty important if you ask us! One of the most sought after benefits of vitamin B-12 are the increased energy levels you’ll receive.

At DreamBody Medical Centers, we offer B-12 Injections. These can be done on a weekly or monthly basis. Depending on your lifestyle and diet, more frequent injections may be recommended. For instance, if you are a vegetarian, we highly suggest receiving B-12 Injections on a weekly basis to ensure you are absorbing the correct amount of vitamin B-12.

Energy drinks are bad for you. We all know this. Yet, we continue to drink them! Between shopping for presents and prepping for in-laws, work and family, there just doesn’t seem to be any other option to help us get through the days. Instead of sacrificing your health for a boost of energy by chugging an energy drink, stop by our Medical Center to receive your first round of B-12 Injections are start to feel the improvement in your life, immediately.

For more information on how B-12 Injections can help to improve your energy levels and allow you to cut back on the caffeine, read our blog post titled: I Need Caffeine But Want to Cut Back On Soda and Coffee, What Should I Do?

Are B-12 Injections Used for Weight Loss?

June 11, 2013

Are B-12 Injections Used for Weight Loss

The simple answer to the question “are B-12 injections used for weight loss?” is yes. While they do not physically lead to weight loss, B-12 injections are used for weight loss and are often used in conjunction with a weight loss plan. More often than not, as we diet, our bodies do not get the appropriate amount of vitamins and nutrients. We need those nutrients and vitamins in our bodies to be and feel healthy. This is especially true for patients on the HCG diet plan. Because of this, the doctors at DreamBody Medical Centers highly recommend receiving B-12 injections while on HCG, or any diet plan for that matter.

While on diets such as HCG in which patients can lose up to 35 pounds in just six weeks, our bodies tend to lack the appropriate (and necessary) amount of vitamins and nutrients. This is exactly where B-12 injections come into play.

The B-12 vitamin injections offered at DreamBody Medical Centers tend to work hand-in-hand with your diet and therefore with your weight loss. The doctors at DreamBody help to consult and administer the HCG diet and the modified HCG meal plan to their patients. While on this diet, the doctors recommend B-12 injections for many reasons.

They come with many benefits including increased energy levels, a stronger immune system and an overall improvement to one’s health. Lack of energy is a common complaint by those following serious diet plans. Nobody wants to feel MORE tired while dieting; they want and expect to experience the exact opposite. With the help of B-12 injections, energy levels can be increased so that you no longer feel sluggish or tired while on your diet.

For those of you interested in both B-12 injections and the HCG diet, the modified HCG meal plan is ideal. The doctors at DreamBody have modified the existing HCG diet plan in order to accommodate a higher caloric intake, as well as achieve a 10 to 15 pound weight loss.

B-12 injections do not physically lead to actual weight loss, however they are used to assist in weight loss plans and programs. The doctors at DreamBody Medical Centers highly recommend receiving B-12 injections while following any sort of diet plan, including HCG!

Should I diet or do liposuction?

May 5, 2013

How to decide between dieting and liposuction
During consultations, patients frequently ask, ‘Should I diet or do liposuction?’

Every patient will receive a different response from us because we are medical professionals, not sales people.

At DreamBody, we go over a complete history with every patient, understanding why they battle with a problem area or yo-yo dieting. Once the medical professionals at DreamBody have a good understanding of what a patient needs to get the desired results, we offer guidance to point them in the right direction.

At Dreambody Medical Centers, we educate patients daily about
, a very successful
weight loss program
. A patient can lose between one-half and one pound per day, as long as the program details are followed faithfully. Program details include a 500-calorie diet, daily HCG injections and weekly
B-12 injections

For the patients who have tried dieting and exercise, and can’t seem to get an area slimmer, we suggest
cold-laser liposuction
. Cold-laser
is the only permanent solution to weight loss in a specific area of the body. Once the fat is removed, it never comes back to that area. We use a non-invasive laser to liquefy the fat. We then numb the area with tumescent fluid. Lastly, we suction out the fat and fat cells, leaving a permanent smooth result.

Our prices are very affordable compared to other liposuction clinics in the area. With advances in technology, the procedure has become safer, easier and much more affordable. Recovery is simple, and most patients go back to work in a few days.

We offer free consultations. Call our office to schedule an appointment with us, and DreamBody promises to help you decide if you should diet or do liposuction.

3 Reasons You Should Get B-12 Injections

April 22, 2013

The name “B-12 Injections” may sound scary, but they are actually a
simple vitamin injection
that is performed right inside our office in Old Town Scottsdale. The injections provide a wide variety of
health benefits
which is why they have become so increasingly popular.

Why receive B-12 Injections?

While there are many reasons for you to receive
B-12 Injection
, we suggest receiving them in order to:

1. Promote a
Healthy Immune System

B-12 Injections
help to promote a healthy immune system in your body, working to fight against common colds and other sicknesses that our bodies are often susceptible to. These are a great option for those of us with little kids, who work in an office environment or are constantly catching the latest sickness.

Increase Energy Levels
B-12 Injections
significantly increase energy levels allowing you to cut back on your coffee or soda intake. Don’t seem to have enough hours in the day to get everything done? You are not alone. Increasing your energy levels with the help of vitamin injections could be the answer to your problem.

3. Avoid
Vitamin B-12 Deficiency

Vitamin B-12 deficiency
can lead to a number of health related problems ranging from weakness and dizziness to rapid heartbeat and breathing. If a B-12 deficiency continues for a long period of time, nerve cells can be damaged which can result in even more severe health problems such as memory loss and difficulty in walking. Weekly B-12 Injections will rid your body of any vitamin B-12 deficiencies.

Depending on whether you want to promote a
healthy immune system
, increase your
energy levels
, avoid a
vitamin B-12
deficiency, or all three, B-12 injections are your solution. They are quick, easy and performed right in our office!

Lipotropic B-12

I Need Caffeine But Want to Cut Back On Soda and Coffee, What Should I Do?

February 1, 2013

Tired of drinking unhealthy and sugary carbonated drinks
to get your daily
B-12 Injections
will actually give you the energy you need, while also correctly maintaining the functioning with the brain and the entire
central nervous program.

There are three different levels of B-12 Injections offered at
so replacing your caffeinated beverages with B-12 Injections is an easy step. They all contain B-12 vitamins, but as each level increases, so do the components each injection contains. B-12 Injections are typically done weekly; however monthly is a safe and acceptable time frame as well.

Choosing which level B-12 Injection is right for you is not as hard as it seems! We can help you decide on the right level for you, while also pointing out the benefits of each, letting you decide what you ultimately want. Some people find that they are in need of more
Vitamin C
, so our third level of B-12 Injections would be the best choice, as they combine both B-12 and C vitamins, while also including various other forms of vitamin B. Want something that will promote a healthy
immune system
? Our second level B-12 Injection may be the perfect choice!

No matter what you are looking for, B-12 Injections will give you that extra energy and work to keep your immune system running properly. Stop drinking sugary, caffeinated drinks and start getting B-12 Injections. Remember, there is no wrong choice with any of the three options we offer!

IV Vitamin & Mineral Therapy

Cold and Flu Season is Approaching

December 13, 2012

It’s that time of year again; time to prevent the common cold and flu virus from taking over your body. At DreamBody Medical Centers, we practice “preventative” medicine. As Dr. Budnick mentioned in his Vitamin D article, it is important to have a strong immune system. To strengthen your immune system, you can take a starting dose of 2000 IU of vitamin D every day. He believes that this is a better immunity booster than Vitamin C. Another option is to get a weekly
B12 injection
to improve your
energy level
and immune system. Some patients tell us that since their B12 therapy has started, they are less prone to getting sick during this season.

We also offer our very popular vitamin IV’s. Each IV includes high doses of ascorbic acid, B-complex, zinc, selenium, and multi trace elements. The IV takes about 45 minutes to get. While in our office, we have you relax in a lazy boy recliner with the option of watching television or using the time to take a quick nap! Getting essential vitamins through the IV route is better than if you were to take all the above vitamins in pill or tablet form.

IV Mineral and Vitamin Therapy is another way to prevent illness. The benefits of vitamin IV’s are endless. They promote better health and enhance the healing process while our bodies are challenged during illness. We often treat conditions such as
fatigue depression, fibromyalgia, upper respiratory infections, seasonal allergic rhinitis and asthma with our vitamin IV’s.

IV’s are regularly priced at $155 each, but during the month of December, we are offering the IV’s at a discounted rate of $90 each. To take advantage of this great special, please give our office a call to schedule your IV treatment. I will meet with you to go over your medical history and answer any questions that you may have regarding the treatments we offer to help you feel better this cold and flu season.

Make it a healthy season!
