LX Medical's weight loss program has helped numerous patients achieve their weight loss goals, live a healthy life, and enjoy total well-being for years. At LX Medical, we believe that weight loss shouldn't be centered around a one-size-fits-all mentality. Our doctors and practitioners create custom weight loss programs that are tailored to your unique body, rather than creating plans based off of someone matching your age or weight. With our team's support, you can achieve real results and start living life without the extra pounds.
That's important in the modern world, where maintaining good health and fitness has become more important than ever. Research has shown that viruses and diseases are more likely to affect people who are overweight and unhealthy. Unfortunately, there are many "miracle" supplements and unhealthy diet plans that mislead people into thinking that weight loss is not beneficial. Furthermore, weight loss "experts" often offer unstructured and unsupervised programs that do more harm than good.
At LX Medical, we prioritize the well-being of our patients when it comes to weight loss. Our approach is patient-centric, focusing on personalized treatments. Our doctors first evaluate your lifestyle habits, and we work with you to replace negative patterns with positive, personalized lifestyle changes. This is crucial for achieving optimal wellness and weight loss. Benefits of losing weight include:
However, losing weight is only the beginning. To keep weight off permanently, adopting a healthy, active lifestyle is essential. At LX Medical, we help you achieve this by implementing manageable, positive lifestyle changes that jumpstart your weight loss journey. By making healthy behaviors a part of your daily routine, you can achieve your weight loss goals and become the best version of yourself.
One of the most successful treatments we offer to help patients shed pounds safely is peptide therapy for weight loss in Excelsior, MN. In fact, peptides for weight loss, such as semaglutide (also known as Ozempic and Wegovy, MOTS-C,) and AOD-9604, have been proven to be effective and have helped countless men and women live life at a healthy weight.
Consisting of amino acids, peptides help regulate the biological processes and functions in your body. As the building blocks of protein, they are crucial for your overall health. Unfortunately, however, many men and women suffer from peptide deficiency. Peptide therapy gives your body the peptides it needs, improving your ability to:
Peptide therapy is often used alongside other treatment plans from LX Medical, such as our custom weight loss plans. That's where peptides like semaglutide and AOD-9604 come into play.
Peptide therapy is often used to boost hormones and support our total well-being. Different types of peptides can target different areas of our health. For example, some collagen peptide supplements can help make our skin, hair, and gut healthier. Other peptides, like semaglutide and AOD-9604, can help facilitate healthy weight loss.
Peptide therapy works in a different way than vitamin supplements. When we take a multivitamin for our hair, skin, and nails, our body must absorb the nutrients. But sometimes, our body can't absorb all the nutrients, so they just leave our body through our urine. Peptides, on the other hand, are part of the proteins in our bodies, making them easier to benefit from and absorb.
But what about peptide therapy for weight loss? The truth is there are various peptides that have different effects, including some that facilitate weight loss. However, weight loss is a nuanced process that involves multiple factors such as diet, exercise, age, genetics, and lifestyle. While peptides can assist you in achieving your weight loss goals, they are most effective when combined with improvements like a healthier diet, more frequent exercise, and better life choices. If you've tried various weight loss plans and diets, but haven't had any success, peptides like semaglutide and ADO-9604 may be the extra boost you need to experience true weight loss.
A recent study in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism found that people who used peptides in conjunction with a weight loss plan experienced incredible results. More specifically, patients reported a 14% reduction in body fat on average. Two of the most popular peptides for weight loss also happen to be FDA-approved and, when appropriate, part of your weight loss journey with LX Medical.
Those peptides are semaglutide and AOD-9604 and are touted for their therapeutic benefits and long-term safety profile. If you're looking for a little extra help to lose weight and keep it off for good, peptide therapy for weight loss could be for you.
Looking to shed some pounds and keep them off for good? Diet and exercise are crucial, but for busy adults and parents, sticking to a routine is easier said than done. If you need extra help losing weight, consider semaglutide. This injection, approved by the FDA for diabetes and obesity, can stimulate GLP-1 receptors in the brain to aid in quicker weight loss and long-term health.
Semaglutide works in several ways. First, it acts as glucagon in your body, which helps tell your brain that you're full and don't need to eat anymore. Secondly, it slows down the time it takes for food to transit out of your stomach. This process reduces unnecessary eating and snacking throughout the day. Perhaps more importantly, it reduces glucose spikes after you eat, which causes a litany of issues like inflammation.
Semaglutide also helps your pancreas secrete insulin while making you insulin sensitive. This regulates glucose levels in your body and how your body metabolizes that glucose. Additionally, by reducing inflammation in your body, you benefit from powerful anti-aging and longevity properties.
When combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, semaglutide can provide:
Unlike other weight loss clinics, at LX Medical, you can enjoy the benefits of semaglutide from the comfort of your office or home. Injections are administered once a week. Once you've met your weight loss goals, you can reduce your intake to a minimum dose for additional positive effects like ongoing weight management. You can also quit taking semaglutide entirely. If you opt to stop, our medical weight loss team can chat with you about other types of peptide therapy for weight loss in Excelsior, MN.
This peptide, which is often used in conjunction with semaglutide regimens, stimulates the breakdown of fat while inhibiting lipogenesis and supporting your tendons and cartilage. It has grown in popularity because of its ability to boost your metabolism, which helps burn fat. What's great about AOD-9604 is that it stimulates the pituitary gland but does not affect tissue growth or blood sugar. Perhaps most impressive is that this peptide can burn fat without you feeling the need to overeat as a result.
In fact, AOD-9604 activates your body's fat-burning processes using its own unique mechanism without needing an HGH receptor. It also releases obese fat cells and reduces new fat cell accumulation. One of the most notable benefits of AOD-9604 is its ability to regulate blood sugar and manage insulin levels, which can lead to reduced inflammation and weight loss. Additionally, AOD-9604 can aid in building muscle, similar to growth hormones. Its benefits extend beyond fat loss, as it contains regenerative properties that may be beneficial for individuals with various conditions, such as:
With the ability to reduce fat that is stored in your abdominal region, this weight-loss peptide is very popular for older people with stubborn belly fat. It is also often used by people who have tried other diets and weight loss plans but had little or no success.
At LX Medical, our doctors offer a range of peptide therapies for your health and well-being. Peptides like semaglutide and AOD-9604 are often used as part of a comprehensive peptide therapy plan, crafted by LX Medical specialists for your body. If you're interested in losing weight, gut health peptides like BPC-157, Thymulosin Alpha, Thymulosin Beta, and GHK-Cu can be incredibly beneficial along your weight loss journey.
This naturally occurring peptide, sometimes called the "Body Protection Compound," is secreted in your gut and helps repair its lining. It works by helping your body be in a constant state of restoration and repair, providing powerful anti-inflammatory effects. This process helps with issues like:
When it comes to losing weight, BPC-157 is often included in peptide therapy for weight loss in Excelsior, MN, because it can help reduce pain and inflammation resulting from new or increased exercise efforts. As noted previously, exercise and diet are key in long-term weight loss, and BPC-157 can make those efforts easier.
This peptide is injected once a day, with courses ranging from 30 to 60 days. After you finish the injection course, consider BPC-157 oral supplements to maintain its benefits.
Thymosin Alpha-1 is a powerful immune system modulator that helps you resist infections, illnesses, and disease. By naturally stimulating T cells to locate and eliminate viruses, bacteria, and even tumor cells, this peptide prompts your body to respond to these invasive organisms, making your immune system naturally stronger and more effective.
Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Thymosin Alpha-1 in regulating immunity and inflammation related to rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and other conditions. Recent clinical studies have also shown promising results in using this peptide to fight lung, colon, breast, and other types of cancer. By reducing inflammation in your body and enhancing your immune system, you can optimize your body as you lose weight with the help of LX Medical.
Patients inject this peptide every day for two weeks and then continue three times a week for 2.5 months.
Thymosin Beta-4 is a peptide consisting of 43 amino acids that is known to promote healing in the body and has anti-inflammatory properties. It occurs naturally in higher concentrations at injury sites and is a water-soluble protein that can regulate cell migration to a site. It is also very good at repairing tissue damage. The substance is not only beneficial for wound healing and skin repair but can also aid in the repair of the brain, spinal cord, and heart. Medical professionals consider Thymosin Beta-4 to be a safe and potent substance in both its natural and synthetic forms.
Like its Alpha counterpart, this peptide can be beneficial for individuals undergoing weight loss, and can help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with exercising and more.
Patients inject this peptide every day for two weeks and then continue three times a week for 2.5 months.
Research suggests that GHK-CU functions as a feedback signal when tissue damage occurs. This peptide is effective in shielding damaged tissue, reducing inflammation, and replacing scarred tissue with healthy tissue. Although further research is necessary to determine its effectiveness on a larger scale, GHK-CU has already been proven to play a role in wound healing and inflammation reduction. Like other peptides for weight loss in Excelsior, MN, GHK-Cu supports your gut health and weight loss efforts by lowering inflammation in your body, which often happens from changes to your diet or exercise regimens.
Patients should take this peptide for 20-30 days, especially when used for wound healing or as part of a more robust peptide therapy package.
At LX Medical, we're proud to make better care possible.
We are a physician-led team of doctors, nurses, and health experts, advised by a panel of top healthcare leaders who are revolutionizing the power of house calls. In fact, all of our peptides for weight loss in Excelsior, MN, can be applied in your home or office without having to wait in long lines or uncomfortable waiting rooms.
We offer exceptionally robust and personalized weight loss plans for patients who can't seem to lose extra weight. To do so, we use innovative weight loss medications such as semaglutide and AOD-9604. To supplement our patient's success, we bring with us advanced diagnostic technology, IV fluids, and medications, with access to outpatient imaging and lab centers. Unlike some weight loss centers, we only staff highly-trained medical professionals and advanced practice providers with experience and compassion.
Are you sick and tired of the way that you look and feel every day? Is your health getting out of control? Are you ready to break out of your cage and lose weight the right way? If you're ready to begin your journey to weight loss success, our team is here to guide you along the way. Contact LX Medical today to get started.

One of the men competing on "The Bachelorette" grew up in Excelsior and graduated from the University of Minnesota and the University of St. Thomas.
John Buresh, who now lives in New York, is among the 10 contestants still vying for Charity Lawson, a child and family therapist in Georgia, on the ABC-TV reality series. The 27-year-old is a data scientist and "the perfect combination of looks and intelligence," according to his cast bio. The show airs Mondays.
Introducing himself when the 20th season of the show debuted on June 26, Buresh gave Lawson a fortune cookie. "It's a little Chinese, a little American," he said. "I'm a little Chinese, a little American."
She read the fortune aloud, laughing: "'You will meet the man of your dreams tonight. His name is John.' "
"I'm just as shocked as you are," he said. "You picked a good one."
If he's not a match for Lawson, some fans hope Buresh might become the first Asian star of "The Bachelor." One host of the podcast "Game of Roses" — which treats the show as a competitive sport and has long advocated for more diversity among its stars — picked Buresh as her MVP of the first episode.
According to his Linkedin profile, Buresh works at an investment firm, which he does not name: "I direct the companywide Data Science strategy and partnerships with data vendors, and build regression models to analyze and predict the performance of healthcare stocks."
He graduated from St. Thomas in 2021 with a master's degree in business analytics and, before that, from the U's Carlson School of Management in 2017 with a bachelor's degree in business management.
A Carlson School publication notes that Buresh took an independent study course in Mauritius, an Indian Ocean island nation, where his mother grew up. He did a technology consulting internship there at PricewaterhouseCoopers Mauritius.
"My idea of Mauritius quickly changed as I figured out how close Mauritius is to the U.S. in terms of tech," Buresh said.
His cast bio also notes his love for the Harry Potter books, singer-songwriter Chelsea Cutler and a well-crafted negroni.
A few episodes in, Buresh shined during a group dodgeball date. After the game, Lawson told Buresh that she was surprised by how well he embraced it.
"Well, people don't know I played professional basketball for a year," Buresh said. (Some "Bachelorette" sleuthers believe that Buresh played ball while in Mauritius.) He asked Lawson if she grew up playing sports. (She did — cheerleading.) "So we've got the athletic genes going for us," he said, with a big smile.
They kissed, and later Lawson rewarded him with a coveted group date rose.
"With John, he really did show a different side of himself. And he did take the lead in initiating a little kiss," she told the camera. "So that definitely took me by surprise in the best way."

Unstoppable restaurateur/chef Daniel del Prado is adding to his portfolio again this summer with Layline, coming to downtown Excelsior in the first half of June.
The restaurant, an American bistro with a slight seafood emphasis, takes over a former auto repair shop at 301 Water St., on the edge of Excelsior's main street.
This is the third Lake Minnetonka-area restaurant del Prado has in partnership with Aaron Switz and Mikael Asp of Innerbloom Hospitality; the first two are Josefina and Macanda in Wayzata.
Cozier than those Wayzata restaurants, Layline will seat 90 people, many of them on a four-season patio and an outdoor patio. Inside will be a "contemporary and eclectic" look, according to a spokesperson for the hospitality group.
Del Prado has brought on Aaron Slavicek as head chef. Slavicek was a longtime chef at Bar La Grassa (where he worked with del Prado), and had prior stints at Cafe Maude, La Belle Vie and Solera. He also spent time on the East Coast, which served as the inspiration for Layline's coastal fare. Specialties will include lobster rolls, oysters and burgers, plus martinis.
This is one of two openings this summer for the restaurant group.
This Memorial Day weekend, Lost Bay will debut in Tonka Bay, at what used to be Tequila Butcher. The outdoor bar and restaurant seats 140 (with 10 boat slips).
Lost Bay will specialize in tiki-style drinks and frozen cocktails from beverage director Brian Kunz (who is also overseeing the drinks at Layline). Yes, at least one drink will be served in a pineapple. Food will be simple and fast casual — think nachos. Look for a DJ and live band lineup soon.
Lost Bay kicks off the season May 26, and will be open daily through Labor Day, at 135 Lakeview Av., Tonka Bay.
While del Prado is not involved in Lost Bay, he does have another restaurant slated to open later in the summer: a still-unnamed Argentinean steakhouse taking over the former Bachelor Farmer space in Minneapolis' North Loop, for which he partnered with Ryan Burnet.
And that's not all for downtown Excelsior, either. The tropical-themed Montego Blu recently opened in the former Suburban, at 304 Water St., just around the corner from the new Layline.

Tuesday Morning Corp. has revealed plans to close more than half its stores across the country — including all three of its remaining Minnesota locations — as the Dallas-based off-price retailer seeks financial and operational reorganization as to shore up outstanding liabilities, obtain capital and evolve into a nimbler retailer.
Tuesday Morning announced Tuesday morning that it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division.
As part of the restructuring process, the retailer spelled out intentions to close stores in low-traffic regions as it looks to optimize its footprint and focus on core and heritage markets.
The retailer is closing two Twin Cities stores and another Minnesota store beyond the metro area:
The retailer didn't indicate a specific closing date for the stores, but when they shutter, Tuesday Morning will no longer operate in Minnesota. Its website still lists a store within Waterford Park Plaza in Plymouth that's already closed.
Nationwide, the company (OTC: TUEM) currently operates 487 stores in 40 states. A full list of all closures can be found in this filing.
Store liquidator Gordon Brothers has been tapped to lead the closings.
Beyond store closures, Tuesday Morning is looking to reduce costs and create efficiencies across its distribution channels through its focus on its remaining stores. That streamlining is expected to include a pivot to a third-party logistics model and transition to a more cost-effective inventory acquisition strategy.
“After considering how best to address Tuesday Morning’s exceedingly burdensome debt, we have determined that the best path to reorganizing and transforming the Company begins with a Chapter 11 filing. Fortunately, we have the support of a committed capital provider in Invictus and a clear vision for transforming into a focused retailer that serves its core, heritage markets in a profitable manner," said Chief Executive Andrew Berger in a prepared statement Tuesday.
"We look forward to taking steps that enable us to emerge as a stronger retailer that draws on a legacy of offering a unique off-price value proposition to our loyal customer base. We appreciate all the support of our employees, customers, creditors and other partners as we seek to sustain commercial operations with minimal disruptions,” Berger continued.
Invictus Global Management, which is headquartered in Austin, Texas, has committed to provide $51.5 million of debtor-in-possession financing to support ongoing operations at Tuesday Morning during the proceedings.
Tuesday Morning has selected Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr as legal advisor and Minneapolis-based Piper Sandler as financial advisor. Vinson & Elkins is advising Tuesday Morning's special committee.

The Excelsior City Council granted final approvals this week for high-end apartments and a parking garage to be built on the site of the current City Hall — but the project has raised questions about how a city prized for its quaintness should look in the future.
The development of downtown apartments and townhouses planned for 339 Third St., just off Water Street, will stand out in Excelsior, where a market-rate apartment building has not been built since Richard Nixon was president.
"When this is completed, it will be a major game-changer for the city of Excelsior," especially the addition of hundreds of public parking spaces downtown, said developer Dan Johnson of Red Leaf Partners.
The development will replace the 1960s-era City Hall and a surface parking lot with 50 new apartments and townhouses and an underground parking garage of more than 300 stalls.
Though Excelsior has a handful of apartment buildings from the 1960s and 1970s, as well as townhouses and a new senior living complex, change has at times been painful for the city, beloved for its village-like feel but where skyrocketing property values have persuaded developers to tear down small, older homes, opening subtle divides between longtime residents and newcomers. Adding to the tension is the fact that the new development will involve tearing down the old City Hall, vacated last month after years of discussion because it is too small and not accessible to people with disabilities.
Residents are divided on whether the planned downtown development will be for better or worse, in a city that covers just one square mile and has seen its character shift dramatically in recent decades. Opponents have raised concerns about parking, as well as about whether new residents will value the community.
"Don't change Excelsior to something that's ordinary or mediocre, or worse, that we no longer feel the comfort of being home," former Council Member Bob Bolles said during a meeting last month about the new apartments.
Resident Joan Maher disagreed.
"It's going to make us as a whole in the city center more complete," she said.
In addition to being a unique change to the city, the apartments and townhouses will also be uniquely expensive for Excelsior: Studios will start at $1,500 per month, and rent for three-bedroom townhouses will top out at $7,000. Johnson said he thinks there's a market in Excelsior for such homes, and said the prices were "finding that equilibrium" between affordability and making enough money through tax-increment financing (TIF) to finance the parking garage. Johnson said prices were comparable to similar developments in Wayzata.
Planning and council meetings about the development started in 2021, with the council voting to approve the project and TIF for the parking garage on Monday.
Johnson said he hopes to finish major construction by spring 2024.

Meet Minnesota, a Midwestern state in the United States that borders Canada and Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes. While this state boasts museums and culture, it houses over 10,000 lakes, offering picture perfect nature endeavors. One of its most prominent mountain ranges is Eagle Mountain, standing at 2,301 feet. While this state offers the perfect hiking landscape, it also contains cute towns that should be on everyone’s travel bucket list. Here are the seven cutest small towns in Minnesota to visit.
On the Mississippi River and full of Minnesota nature lies Grand Rapids. This rural, picture-perfect town is family-friendly and has been a cute destination for couples and fishermen for over 100 years. Better yet, there are 1,000 lakes around the Grand Rapids area, making for cute and relaxing getaway spots. Visit Bass Lake, Bowstring Lake, or Caribou Lake. Home to popular species of fish like rock bass, yellow perch, and sunfish, they are an angler’s dream come true. While Grand Rapids has dozens of parks to explore within town, if you really want to explore nature, take to their trails, like Masabi Bike Trailhead. Spanning over 28 communities and 150 miles of paved pathways, see lakes, ponds, creeks, and local wildlife. In the town’s core, explore its history by visiting Itasca County Historical Society and Forest History Center.
At the tip of Lower Lake and making up the South Lake Minnetonka region resides Excelsior, a quaint suburban town founded in 1853 by New York colonists. Its downtown neighborhood offers a warm small-town vibe and is rich in history. Order takeout at Maynard’s Restaurant, perhaps some of their famous waffle fries, and set up a picnic at one of the Lake Minnetonka beaches. There are two in total, with one being more family-friendly including picnic benches, a playground, and a tennis court.
One of the town’s modes of transport were trolleys, and they have kept them around for tourists to ride on. Do not miss this historic experience of touring the town’s main streets, farmer’s markets, and museums.
Right against the shores of Lake Superior near Sawtooth Mountains, explore Grand Marais, an area known for its vast nature landscapes and folk culture. Grand Marais offers the cutest camping adventure you will ever experience. Grand Marais Campground and Marina is a part of their recreation area and boasts 300 camp sites, beaches, pavilions, bathhouses, and more. Whether visitors set up a tent or rent an RV, drop-ins are allowed, providing instant access to Lake Superior and Sawtooth Mountain.
Need a treat? Hop into town for the best donuts in the world. World’s Best Donuts on 10 Wisconsin Street serves the donut of your dreams with miraculous icing patterns and unique flavors. Try a Banana Cream Bismark with white frosting or a Maple Bacon Long John. They also offer donut kabobs, with mini donuts sitting on a skewer.
Lanesboro’s neighboring river is Root River and has a tiny population of 723 people, but these elements are not the only things that make this town cute — it contains Commonweal Theater and 60 miles of winding valley trails: Root River State Bike Trail. Since 1989, this venue brings people old-fashioned plays, like Hamlet, and cheesy comedies, like Women in Jeopardy! Visit 208 Parkway Avenue North and see what is playing while you are in town. The Root River State Bike Trail contains 42 miles of paved avenues. Find abandoned railroads, wooden bridges, and local wildlife. All paths are wheelchair accessible.
While Lanesboro has much to offer in nature, tourists will not want to miss exploring its cute downtown core full of boutiques, stores, and galleries. At Lanesboro Arts, admire over 70 pieces from local creators or participate in workshops! With the area being a native Amish community, take a horse carriage ride and get to know the community on a more intimate level.
Underrated CitiesVisit one of these 8 Most Underrated Cities in Minnesota
With South Dakota as its neighbor state, Pipestone, Minnesota has an uproarious history. It contains the Pipestone Monument, a protection method for the pipestone quarries back in 1937. It contains walls of red stone and a trickling waterfall. For a cute yet historical place to stay, then book a room at Calumet inn, which has been a functioning hotel since 1888. Inside is a popular restaurant and antiques on display. Explore nature off the beaten path and visit Split Rock Creek State Park. While it resides in Jasper, it is still within Pipestone County. Walk down the sandy paths and peruse the lakes full of walleye, sunfish, perch, and bass. In the summer, set up camp and swim at the beach.
Not a confident fire-chef? Head back to town and enjoy one of the top-rated restaurants, Stonehouse Quarry Lounge. On the menu they offer: salmon club sandwiches, Reubens, and rib eye, to name a few.
Picture a main street lined with warm, cobblestone buildings, unique local shops, and bushy maple trees, all beside the St. Croix River. The river is abundant with walleye, sauger, and northern pike, and spans for 115 miles. Being so close to the river, this town offers cute and peaceful boating, park, and nature experiences. Some popular marinas to launch boats at include Boomsite Marina and Wolf Marine. Additionally, rent paddle boats from Brown Dog Paddleboard Co. at 15150 Square Lake Trail North. The closest state parks are Minnesota State Park and Wisconsin State Park. Since Stillwater is so close to Wisconsin, tourists can access both easily.
Nothing pairs better with lake life than wine and beer. Stillwater offers several wine and brewery tours. Get a rustic experience with 7 Vines Vineyard and sip by the glass near a wood-burning fireplace. Or opt for Forge & Foundry Distillery where customers can try blends made with local ingredients.
Ever imagined escaping the hustle and bustle of life by living in a cave? Well, while one cannot live in Niagara Cave in Harmony, Minnesota, visitors can certainly tour it! Niagara Cave is only a short distance from the town’s core, and it is a once in a lifetime experience. Take an hour-long tour and discover an underground maze of stalagmites and stalactites. The guided tour is a mile long and gives participants a chance to uncover 450-year-old fossils, underground streams and waterfalls, and unique rock formations. The cave was discovered in 1924 and became accessible in 1934.
Additionally, the town core is a hub for Amish furniture shops and delectable eateries. Many restaurants serve baked goods, salads, craft beer, and wine.
Each of these towns are cute and boast unique experiences to create lifelong memories, but how to decide which is the cutest? Will it be Excelsior’s beaches, or will it be Harmony’s historical cave? No matter which town visitors may choose, they will experience a mixture of breathtaking nature and cute small-town vibes that will make you want to call each town home.
