Obesity affects over 40% of adults and 20% of children in the US. It is an epidemic that is complex and difficult to address in the traditional healthcare system. It is associated with numerous conditions including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, sleep apnea, depression, and the list goes on. Obesity was found to greatly increase the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as well. We offer medical weight loss services which focus around patient education, weight-loss promoting medications, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle changes. At Blue Ocean Health, we have the time to help our patients implement long lasting change and help ensure accountability.

Lifestyle Medicine is the use of therapeutic interventions to treat and potentially reverse chronic disease. In addition to weight loss, behavioral changes such as exercise, sleep, nutrition, and stress management all have significant effects on various medical conditions and overall wellbeing. We offer longitudinal support for those interested in intensive lifestyle medicine services. Please contact us for more details.
