Holistic Approach to Obesity in Vancouver, Wa

At Ethereal Aesthetics Medical Spa in Vancouver, Washington, we confront obesity not just as a visible concern but as a complex health condition. Through weekly injections of compounded semaglutide, we offer a potential solution. Let’s delve into the intricacies of obesity as a disease, its effects, and how weight loss with Ethereal Aesthetics, complemented by semaglutide, becomes a transformative tool for weight management.

Obesity as a Recognized Disease

Beyond being a visible concern, obesity is officially recognized as a disease with far-reaching implications for health. The American Medical Association (AMA) took a significant step by classifying obesity as a disease in 2013. This decision aimed to highlight the medical complexities associated with obesity, emphasizing its adverse effects on various physiological functions.

The classification by AMA acknowledges that obesity isn’t merely a lifestyle choice but a medical condition requiring attention and intervention. This recognition is pivotal in shifting the narrative around obesity, prompting a more comprehensive and compassionate approach to its treatment and management.

Understanding the Medical Impact

Obesity, as a disease, is linked to a range of health issues, including cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and joint problems. The physiological impact of obesity is profound, affecting hormone regulation, metabolism, and overall bodily functions. Moreover, the mental and emotional toll of obesity is significant, with individuals often facing challenges such as reduced mobility, increased risk of depression, and a diminished quality of life.
