The problem: Many people have problems with their weight and body shape, which often results in a lifelong battle, not to mention the health conditions associated with being overweight (high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol) which can lead on to more serious illnesses such as heart disease and strokes.
Usual methods of dieting lower our body’s metabolic rate. This means that weight loss becomes more difficult and some reach a point of ‘plateau’ where you tend to become ‘stuck’. When ‘dieting’ we often break the regime due to weakness, lack of energy levels and fatigue – meaning the weight piles back on. Even when we do manage to achieve any significant weight loss, often our body’s shape and contours are not greatly improved. This is because the fat cells stored under the skin is frequently very resistant to being broken down by dieting due to their fibrous and calcified nature and poor blood supply.
The treatment: We are now able to offer a revolutionary solution to the problem of excessive weight with a remarkable treatment called Alizonne Therapy®. The Alizonne Therapy® was developed over several years by Dr Claudia van der Lugt, an internationally renowned medical specialist in the treatment of overweight patients. We are now offering this revolutionary treatment at our clinic in Glasgow.
The Alizonne therapy comprises 4 essential elements:
- Alizonne Ultrasound Therapy: weekly treatments to break down the fat stores under the skin.
- Skin and Connective Tissue Therapy weekly treatments carried out by a specialised equipment designed specifically for the Alizonne treatment. The skin is vigorously but painlessly stimulated to activate the fibroblast cells within the skin. These cells when activated lay down new collagen and elastin tissue to improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Hardened, calcified, bumpy tissue under the surface of the skin is also broken down, resulting in the texture of the layers under the skin becoming much smoother. The lymphatic drainage of the connective tissue is also improved.
- Alizonne Nutritional Therapy is uniquely and precisely custom-formulated. The patient’s eating plan is accurately followed through several phases and these results in metabolic changes to the body which cause rapid, very predictable and continuous weight loss. The fat released from the ultrasound treatments is vital as it provides an additional source of fuel for use by the body as energy during the treatment.
- Stabilisation and Maintenance Phases We will have achieved nothing if you regain weight in the future. On reaching your ideal weight, we will stabilise your weight at its new level and then, with the assistance of accurate measurements of your body’s metabolism, guide you through long term maintenance with personal monthly follow-up appointments.
The results: Theaverage weight loss is about 3 to 4 stones over a 3 month period. Many patients lose significantly more. The resultant weight correction, contour shaping and skin tightening will transform your body.
Medical Team: Dr. Simon Connolly, based in Glasgow, was personally trained in Alizonne Therapy by Alizonne’s very own founder – Dr. Van Der Lugt. He is the only Doctor in Scotland qualified to offer the treatment and has performed numerous studies on his cases, and has proven the success of this treatment. During your initial consultation, Dr. Connolly will assess your personal dietary and nutritional requirements and build the treatment to suit you.
Some of your questions answered
Only physicians personally trained by Dr Claudia van der Lugt who devised the diet are able to offer this service to ensure that patients are treated correctly and consistently.
The endermologie technology used in Alizonne therapy stimulates collagen production and tightens skin as you lose weight. Weight loss of more than 6 stones will inevitable result in some loose skin. This can be addressed by surgery after your weight is stable.
This is not a problem in Alizonne therapy. Dr Connolly will reduce your medication or insulin to reflect the low calorie content of the diet. Most patients with type 2 diabetes (tablet controlled) will find their sugar returns to normal by the end of the Alizonne Therapy®.
From week 2 onwards patients do not feel hungry. This is because the nutrition provides a steady blood sugar level and avoids the ups and downs and hunger pangs of all other diets. In spite of the low calorie intake patients feel alert, have good concentration and do not feel tired or sluggish in the afternoon.
In Alizonne Therapy® there are soups, omelettes, pizza, pasta, pancakes, desserts, cold drinks, hot chocolate and cappuccino to name but a few. You also have vegetables and salad at lunch and dinner.
At the end of the diet Dr Connolly will measure your metabolic rate and give you a customised eating plan based on that and your height and weight. It will tell you how many calories you should eat per day and also how many grams of Fat, Protein and Carbohydrates should be consumed each day to make up this calorie allowance.
All aspects of this treatment will be fully explained during a detailed initial consultation (which is without obligation) with Dr Connolly, who has been fully trained in this therapy by Dr van der Lugt herself. He will assess your individual treatment needs carefully and during your consultation, any questions can be answered and your personal programme for Alizonne Therapy® can be calculated, planned and formulated.
