Why VIVA Wellness focuses on whole-person health and wellness to serve the people of our community.
At VIVA Wellness, we take an innovative holistic approach to weight loss that goes beyond just diet and exercise. The staff Nurse Practitioners who work with you as part of our personalized holistic medical weight loss program understand the connection between mental and physical health, and aim to provide personalized, sustainable, and realistic solutions based on each individual’s unique needs. Through evidenced-based medications and a comprehensive approach that takes into account micro and macronutrient needs, we help you achieve your weight loss goals and improve your overall wellness. Before you resort to extreme diets or invasive weight loss surgery, let us show you how our personalized treatment services at VIVA Wellness can revolutionize the way you think about weight loss.
Our Whole-Person Approach
Our team at VIVA Wellness sees you for more than your weight, so we are more than a weight loss clinic. We focus on a whole-person care model that incorporates mental health, social health, and behavioral health into every care plan. We aim to use patient engagement to build a personal relationship with each client to develop a plan that is right for you.
Many of our patients come to us after failed attempts with their primary care doctor and the traditional healthcare system. Most hospitals and outpatient clinics see you as a transaction, a chart with a copayment, rather than a human being. Traditional medical weight loss programs are conducted in a cold, sterile environment that does not foster emotional and mental health. Most healthcare professionals do not have the time to get to know each of their patients on a deeper level to be able to offer personalized weight loss programs. If you want to see positive health outcomes, whole-person healthcare is the only way to get there.
Why we care about serving our community
In every community, there are unique social factors that affect health outcomes. Our well-being is largely influenced by our circumstances and surroundings. The locale we reside in, the environment surrounding us, our genetics, level of income, education, and relationships with family and friends can all have significant impacts on your body’s ability to cope with stress and function at its peak.
Community health involves holistic wellness approaches that aim to enhance health, prevent disease, and reduce gaps in health by targeting social health and behavioral, environmental, economic, and medical triggers of health issues in a particular location. The traditional health system attempts to bring individuals to a healthy weight without acknowledging that social support plays a significant role in the way your body functions. At VIVA Wellness, we know that our patients are inseparable from their community, and your wellness depends on it.
Being located in Brookfield, we have come to know the greater Waukesha community and its unique needs. Most of our clinicians are from Southeast Wisconsin and have a real heart for serving this area. Though we offer a wide range of holistic services, if needed we also offer referrals for community resources that are outside of what we offer. We have a network of trusted mental health, emotional health, and alternative and energetic providers (such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, reiki, etc.) that our patients have loved and trusted.
