Results that speak for themselves…


Semaglutide is an FDA-approved weight-loss treatment for adults.

It’s an injectable medication that was originally used to treat type 2 diabetes, but when it was noticed how much weight patients were losing, it was studied, tested, and ultimately approved independently as a weight-loss medication.

The compound itself belongs to a class of drugs known as GLP-1 receptor agonists, which are used to reduce blood sugar and energy intake.

It basically mimics a hormone that the gut naturally produces in response to food (called glucagon-like peptide 1, or GLP-1), and which causes both a reduced appetite and improves metabolic function.

This means you instinctively eat less and more easily lose weight, without ever feeling hungry or deprived of food.

It works due to 3 main processes:

1. Slows down how fast your stomach empties -> when you eat you feel full faster and stay full for longer.
2. Blocks the hunger hormone (ghrelin) -> reduces cravings for high-calorie foods.
3. Increases insulin production and decreases release of glucagon -> leads the body to burn fat faster in order to turn it to energy.

The majority of clients who enquire about semaglutide do quality for treatment.

However, it can only be prescribed by a licensed practitioner who will evaluate your bloodwork, medical status and history during a consultation, and identify whether or not you are a candidate.

Semaglutide is ideally suited to adults who either have a BMI over 30, or a BMI of 25-30 plus another weight-related risk, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, glucose intolerance, pre-diabetes, and more. But the best way to know for sure if this treatment is right for you is from a professional consult.

You can call us to book a consultation, or book your consult online here.
The main limitations on qualifying for semaglutide are:

- Under 18 years old
- Pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to get pregnant
- BMI under 25
- Diabetic (if you are type 2 diabetic you will likely qualify through insurance, but need to discuss this with your regular doctor)
- History of pancreatitis
- A selection of other specific medical issues or medications
The treatment consists of once-per-week injections, starting on a low dosage (0.25mg), which is slowly increased every 4–6 weeks until you reach a dosage that works optimally for you. The maximum dosage is 2.50mg.

The injections need to be administered on the same day each week. It is a small injection that goes under the skin and into the fatty tissue of either the abdomen or thigh.

The first injection will be administered by us in the clinic, and we will then give you medication to take home and show you how to self-inject it for the subsequent weeks. Every 4–6 weeks, you return for a review and to collect your next batch.
Many patients take semaglutide for 3–6 months, but every patient is unique and your practitioner will plan and adapt your treatment based on your individual health, needs, and results.
Not everyone experiences side effects, but the below is a list of those most commonly reported:
- Nausea
- Vomiting
- Diarrhea
- Constipation
- Stomach cramps
- Fatigue
- Headaches
- Dizziness
- Low blood sugar
These side-effects are usually mild and subside after the first few weeks. This is also one of the core reasons for starting with a low initial dosage.
Yes, semaglutide is approved by the FDA as safe to use when directed.

However, as with any medication, there are risks associated if the medication isn’t taken as directed or if you have a specific health condition that stops you being a candidate.

For this reason, it’s vital that you only take semaglutide under professional guidance and that you are honest and open with your practitioner about your medical history.

No, Semaglutide for weight-loss purposes isn’t covered by insurance.

The only instance in which it will be covered by insurance is if you have type 2 diabetes, in which case your regular doctor will be able to prescribe it for you.

However, we are able to offer semaglutide for weight loss at a very competitive price here at BodyTonic.

We charge $79.00 for the initial consultation, which includes in-depth bloodwork analysis and a full medical history. This fee will be deducted from the treatment cost if you are a candidate and choose to go forward.
