Medical Weight Loss
Medical weight loss programs consist of a customized nutrition plan complete with prescription weight loss medication based on the individual client’s history and wellness goals. If you would like VIVA Wellness to help you lose weight, our nurse practitioner will personally meet with you on a regular basis to keep you on track throughout your wellness journey.
Medical Weight Loss Protocol at VIVA Wellness
Medical weight loss programs through VIVA Wellness include semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy), CONTRAVE® (naltrexone HCI/bupropion HCl), Phentermine, Qsymia®, and other products developed by the medical community to help the body release weight through various approaches.
Our medical weight loss protocols are designed to help you reach your goals while allowing for the behaviors you deem aligned with your lifestyle. Our goal throughout any weight loss journey is total body health, which is why working with a VIVA Wellness Nurse Practitioner is so important. You are given a custom protocol, with any needed nutrition and movement plans, that is based on individual health history, wellness goals, and overall preferences. Having a dedicated Nurse Practitioner invested in your wellness journey also means that your protocol includes accountability and consistent check-ins to ensure that you are on track moving toward your goals.
Because weight loss does not happen independent of the rest of the body's functions, VIVA Wellness is proud to offer in-house options to amplify and support your results with suggested digestive and/or lymphatic system services.
Medications & prescriptions in a medical weight loss plan can include:
- Semaglutide (Wegovy® or Ozempic®): Provides powerful weight loss results through a weekly injection protocol without having to radically modify diet and lifestyle. Semaglutide is a non-stimulant, reduces cravings, makes you feel fuller for longer, and regulates blood sugar levels.
- Tirzepatide (Mourjaro®): Offers similar results to those using semaglutide—reducing appetite, sustaining satiety, and balancing blood sugar. The combination of these benefits over time means sustained weight loss for many.
- CONTRAVE® (naltrexone HCI/bupropion HCl): Works on two areas of your brain, the hunger center and the reward system, to reduce hunger and help control cravings.
- Phentermine: – A short term solution for appetite suppression. Works best in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.
- Qsymia®: This is a combination of two drugs: Phentermine and Topiramate. It will help you eat less by reducing your appetite, and feeling more satisfied with what you've eaten.
- Additional weight loss medications may be prescribed during your care.

"I've seen Jennifer for help with weight loss and she helped me lose 50 pounds so far since earlier this year! I look forward to my appointment every month! At VIVA Wellness they truly care about what they do and helping people. All the staff is super friendly and there's such good energy! Besides weight loss they have so many amazing services. If you're looking to feel better about yourself in anyway, I would highly recommend you check out VIVA Wellness!"
"I am so impressed with VIVA Wellness. They are so professional as well as warm, caring and encouraging. I started a weight loss program. I have had so much success, I am in shock! Yes, it is a plan meant to be followed closely, but with the weekly check ins, you feel so supported. It is like going to a pep rally every week. They genuinely care about your success and are so encouraging. I have had appointments with Jennifer, and she is so sweet, it is like you have another girlfriend in your corner. So understanding if you are struggling with something and give great suggestions to help get you through it. I have never had this kind of support with any other diet plan/company. I hope they know how much they are changing people's lives for the better. Not just as far as weight loss, but also in giving us confidence to better our lives for our own health."
"Jennifer and VIVA Wellness are amazing and unlike any other providers. At VIVA Wellness you get personalized recommendations geared specifically to you. I feel supported and encouraged to reach my goals and understanding when I fall short. They are great about guiding you along on your own personal journey using a holistic approach to create the best version of you. And it is easy to incorporate into my daily life."
"VIVA Wellness is amazing! I am so thankful I found them. I am on a GLP1 medication that has allowed me to lose 35 lbs in 4 months and I feel amazing. I get so much support and guidance from the team! I highly recommend!"
"I just went for the consult yesterday so I can't say anything about results yet however Jennifer Hruz is AMAZING! She is SO thorough, easy to talk to and I can't say in my almost 40 years of life that I've had a better experience with any doctor. If you have anxiety like I do, do not fret, she is the EASIEST person to talk to! I can't wait to see my results!"
"I cannot praise Jennifer and the staff at VIVA Wellness enough. Everyone there is so understanding and professional. While receiving medical weight loss counseling with Jennifer, I'm proud to say that I have lost eighty pounds. I'm seventy-six years young and so it might have taken me a little longer time, about one year, but Jennifer was always so patient and always there providing guidance and support. Jennifer's personal attention makes me feel like I'm her only client. I've learned so much. Needless to say, I'm looking better, but most importantly, I'm feeling great!! My blood pressure returned to normal, so my doctor discontinued my blood pressure meds. Thank you Jennifer for introducing me to and supporting me in my healthier lifestyle."
