Exploring Weight Loss Injections at the Sanctuary Wellness Institute

In recent years, the quest for effective weight loss solutions has led many to explore options beyond traditional diet and exercise. Among these, weight loss injections have emerged as a promising alternative.

At the Sanctuary Wellness Institute, we’ve witnessed firsthand the transformational impact these injections can have. In this article, we’ll delve into the weight loss injections the Sanctuary offers and the risks and benefits associated with them.

Types of Weight Loss Injections Offered at the Sanctuary

Semaglutide Injections

Semaglutide mimics the action of the GLP-1 hormone to suppress appetite, decelerate gastric emptying, and lower caloric intake. Studies have demonstrated that semaglutide users lose about 15% of their body weight over the course of 68 weeks on the drug.

Some of the most common side effects of semaglutide injections include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Stomach pain
  • Headache
  • Fatigue

Tirzepatide Injections

Tirzepatide functions by mimicking the action of two hormones that play vital roles in regulating blood sugar levels and appetite. When injected, tirzepatide boosts the body’s insulin production, decreases the amount of sugar produced by the liver, and reduces appetite. This not only helps control blood sugar levels, but also contributes to weight loss by promoting a feeling of satiety.

Research has indicated that tirzepatide users lose about 20% of their body weight over the course of six months of treatment.

Some of the most common side effects of tirzepatide for weight loss include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Headache

Benefits of Medical Weight Loss Injections

Some of the key benefits of using medical weight loss injections include:

  • Appetite Suppression: Weight loss injections contain compounds that decrease appetite and, consequently, lower calorie intake.
  • Metabolic Boost: Some injections have the capacity to enhance your metabolic rate, which can help you burn more calories throughout the day.
  • Improved Blood Sugar Control: Components of weight loss injections can assist in stabilizing blood sugar levels, which is particularly beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
  • Convenience: For those struggling with diet and exercise alone, injections offer a convenient add-on to traditional weight loss methods.
  • Personalized Treatment Plan: With medical weight loss injections, your treatment plan can be tailored to meet your specific needs and goals.

What Makes a Good Candidate for Weight Loss Injections?

Good candidates for medical weight loss injections usually meet the following criteria:

  • BMI (Body Mass Index): Generally, good candidates have a BMI of 30+ or 27+ with a weight-related condition such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol (though you don’t have to have a specific BMI or condition to join the Sanctuary’s medical weight loss program).
  • Underlying Health Conditions: Good candidates are often dealing with weight-related health issues that could be alleviated with weight loss.
  • Age: Good candidates are adults (18 or older).
  • Commitment to Lifestyle Changes: While injections can facilitate weight loss, the best candidates are those willing to make concurrent lifestyle changes related to diet and exercise.
  • Understanding of Risks and Benefits: A good candidate understands the risks and side effects of weight loss injections and weighs them against the benefits.


Medical weight loss injections represent a beacon of hope for individuals who’ve struggled to lose weight through traditional diet and exercise. Good candidates for these injections are committed to transforming their lifestyles and pursuing sustainable weight loss goals.
