Weight loss helps you feel better about yourself and your body. Patients from Houston and The Woodlands / Spring areas who are in our programs say they experience more energy, less joint pain, and, because of weight loss, are less likely to develop chronic, life-threatening diseases such as:

Body Mass Index (BMI) and Body Composition Analysis (BCA)

Before starting any weight loss program, it’s important that you become familiar with the term Body Mass Index (BMI). Although fairly accurate, this method may overestimate the body fat of muscular athletes and underestimate the body fat of an individual with very little muscle weight.

Waist circumference is considered by many health professionals to be another important factor when evaluating fat distribution. Studies indicate that visceral fat found in the abdominal area around the waist, in excess of 35 inches for women and 40 inches for men, may also increase the likelihood of heart disease, diabetes, and other medical problems, even if your BMI is within normal range.

For any of our diet programs, we will perform a complete body composition analysis with the InBody 520. This machine will analyze your body composition, including lean body mass, body fat mass, dry lean mass, body mass index, percent body fat, amount of water inside and outside the cells, and much more. 

This tool helps you understand how your lifestyle, diet, and exercise regimen influence your body composition. It is instrumental in identifying what works and what doesn’t so you can reach your target weight loss goal.

Signature Weight Loss Program

Our Signature weight management program provides size reduction and weight loss. This program begins with a complete body composition test, vital signs, lab testing, EKG, if needed, consultation and physical exam with one of our providers to go over your medical history, lifestyle habits, such as nutrition and exercise.

We help you recognize what types of foods, medications, medical conditions that may be causing your weight increase and work towards permanent lifestyle changes with diet modification. We will discuss portion control and the significance of not skipping meals. For many patients, we prescribe an appetite suppressant (Adipex, Qsymia, Belviq, Phentremine, etc) and a water pill, if necessary.

Most patients come in weekly for vitamin injections and monitoring. Every 30 days, providers will meet with you face to face for weight loss counseling to ensure you are doing well with prescribed medications and making progress towards a healthy weight goal. We also discuss labs results if necessary.

Signature Weight Loss Program

  • Medical consultation
  • Comprehensive lab work – 4 panels (CBC & chem 14, lipid & TSH panels)
  • Complete body composition / weight and nutritional analysis
  • Appetite suppressant and a diuretic medication, specific to your individual needs, if necessary
  • Nutritional counseling, sample meal plan, and exercise recommendations
  • A 30-day prescription to fill at your local pharmacy, if needed

hCG Diet Program

If you want a physician-directed weight loss program that will provide rapid and drastic weight loss, the hCG diet program at New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa may be the right option. 

While it may seem extreme to consume only 500 to 700 calories per day while on the diet, the hCG injections trigger your body to burn stored fat for energy. Your body doesn’t wait for you to consume more fat; it just burns the unhealthy fat you’ve been carrying around for years! 

On the hCG diet, you can lose up to 1 pound/day. The more excess fat you have, the more you can lose!

What is hCG?

hCG is human chorionic gonadotropic – a medical-grade hormone, certified for its purity and potency, and given as an injection. hCG acts on the hypothalamus – the part of your brain that controls hunger and appetite. The hypothalamus signals your brain to release excess fat into the blood stream so it can be metabolized and excreted through the kidneys and bowels. 

While taking hCG, and on every low calorie diet, you will lose unwanted fat while preserving muscle. When your body begins using up stored fat, that extra weight begins to melt off your body. You are able to eat fewer calories without feeling hungry and lose weight at the same time. 

We have seen many patients experience the benefits of rapid weight loss with the hCG diet program at our clinic.

Benefits of the hCG Diet

  • Burn excess fat without losing muscle mass
  • Reduce hunger and boost energy
  • Improve metabolism rate
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Minimal drug interactions

What to Expect

As with our Signature weight loss diet, the hCG diet program begins with a consultation, blood work, and comprehensive exam, including your weight, BMI, and other body measurements. 

You will be instructed to follow a strict diet of only 500 to 700 calories per day. You will also receive a 30-day supply of medical-grade hCG injections while on the program. Meal plans, grocery shopping lists, and support will be at your disposal at New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa.

You will be monitored on a weekly basis during the program. For patients who struggle with willpower, an appetite suppressant can make it possible for you to eat less.

hCG Diet Programs:   (30-day & 40-day programs available) 

  • Medical consultation
  • Comprehensive lab work - 4 panels (CBC & chem 14, lipid & TSH panels)
  • Complete body composition / weight and nutritional analysis
  • Appetite suppressant and a diuretic medication, specific to your individual needs, if necessary
  • Nutritional counseling and sample meal plan
  • The complete hCG diet manual and instructions for the program.
  • A 30- or 40-day supply of prescription medical-grade hCG injections 

FDA hCG Disclaimer

"These weight reduction treatments include the use of hCG, a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that hCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort dissociated with calorie-restrictive diets."

Vitamin & Lipotropic Injections

Our exclusive lipotropic and vitamin B12 energy-boosting injections provide the first step to re-energize your body while accelerating your weight loss. To maximize your ability to lose weight and make you more energetic, our injections will:

  • Increase your energy, without caffeine or sugar
  • Cleanse your liver of fats and toxins

Lipotropic injections combine the powerful energy boost of vitamin B12 with the fat-burning benefits of lipotropic complex. These injections contain amino acids (protein building blocks) and enzymes that together help your body. The different ingredients of this mixture are known to have the following attributes:

  • Co-enzymes that are required for proper metabolism of fats, carbs and proteins and have the ability to remove fat from the liver
  • Energy boost
  • Speed up thought process and improve mood
  • Building blocks for cell walls
  • Essential components for normal cell and brain function
  • Help control cholesterol levels and gallstones
  • Helps emulsify cholesterol and detoxify amines
  • Helps keep healthy skin tone and strong nails
  • Promote healthy hair growth, and controlling estrogen levels
  • Help with transforming carbohydrates into energy
  • Help minimize unwanted water gain
  • Increase breakdown of fat (lipids) during metabolism
  • Prevent excess fat build-up in the liver
  • Boost your body’s overall metabolic power

Our injections contain carefully calibrated doses of natural lipotropic nutrients that can improve your ability to shed fat. Your body will be more effective in handling the fats you consume. Some frequently asked questions are listed below. Call New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa to learn more! 

What is a lipotropic substance?

By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat (lipo = fat, tropic = stimulate) within the liver. Lipotropic nutrients are a class of agents that play important roles in the body's use of fat. These compounds enhance the liver and gallbladder's role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. Your liver is the organ responsible for removing fat and toxins from your body.

The key amino acids used to make these injections are choline, methione, and inositol. Vitamin B12 is essential for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels.

What are some of the important functions of lipotropics?


  • Metabolizes fat
  • Deficiency of choline can lead to cirrhosis and fatty degeneration of the liver and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis)
  • It is being used today for ailments such as gall bladder trouble, diabetes, muscular dystrophy, glaucoma, senility, and memory problems (forgetfulness)
  • Detoxifies amines that are the by-products of protein metabolism.


  • Deficiency of inositol can lead to hair loss
  • It works with vitamin E.
  • It is used in nerve and muscle disorders such as multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy. Caffeine may cause depletion of inositol.


  • It works with choline to detoxify amines which are the by-products of protein metabolism.
  • It acts as a catalyst for choline and inositol, opening up their function.
  • Along with choline it aids in reducing liver fat and protects the kidneys

Vitamin B12:

  • Vitamin B12 boosts your energy level. Common benefits reported by patients include improved sleep, reduced allergies, reduced stress and depression, improved mood, and less frequent or severe headaches. Vitamin B12 injections contribute to healthier immune systems and are an essential B vitamin needed to form red blood cells for proper brain and spinal cord function.


  • L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell. Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body's burning of triglycerides as fuel. FAT + OXYGEN + L-CARNITINE = ENERGY

Can anyone get B12 lipotropic injections or do I have to be on one of the diets?

In order to receive vitamin B12 lipotropic injections you do not have to be on one of our diet plans, but you must be established as our patient. You must have an initial visit with a medical professional and then you can receive the injections.

How often should I get the injections?

You can get the vitamin B12 lipotropic injections as often as twice per week. Many of our patients opt to get the injection once per week depending on their schedule. Within a couple of days of receiving B12 lipotropic injections, many people experience an increase in their energy level and stamina. Each individual is unique and may experience a variation of results from one injection. 

How much weight will I lose while taking vitamin B12 lipotropic injections?

Vitamin B12 lipotropic injections are a tool to aid your dieting efforts. The injections alone will not cause weight loss. It is with a healthy diet and exercise program that you will see and feel the benefits of the injection.

How much do these injections cost?

NutriMed Weight Loss Program

If you need a simple, straight-forward approach to dieting, the NutriMed Weight Loss program is for you. The NutriMed program is effective because you don’t have to think about what or how much to eat. It is designed for patients with a BMI of 30 or higher with existing obesity-related health problems. NutriMed may also be ideal for bariatric surgery candidates. 

During this medical weight loss program, you will replace store-bought foods with NutriMed shakes, puddings, and bars over the course of four phases. Because weight loss requires long-lasting change, we will teach you how to plan and prepare healthy meals, deal with the stresses of weight management, incorporate exercise into your life, and more. 

The four phases are adaptation, weight loss, refeeding, and maintenance. The adaptation phase uses supplements within a low-calorie meal plan to initiate change in your body. The weight loss phase relies primarily on supplements to trigger your metabolism and burn up stored fat.  The refeeding phase begins when you are ready to start eating store-bought foods again. And the last phase is all about maintaining the progress you’ve achieved during the first three phases, with the support of your physician. 

Candidates for the NutriMed diet who successfully complete the program see benefits in their overall health, energy level, mood, and their weight, such as:

  • Lower blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Lower blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics
  • Less joint pain in the knees, hips, and ankles

NutriMed’s products are high in protein, vitamins, and minerals to support safe and effective weight loss. The food is also low in carbohydrates and fat to facilitate the release of stored fat. The meal replacements and protein supplements are of the highest quality, manufactured in accordance with federal regulations and affordably priced. 


Have you tried dieting and exercising but still have stubborn fat that won’t go away? Then turn to mesotherapy to get rid of stubborn fat and unattractive dimpling from cellulite without surgery or extreme dieting.

Mesotherapy is a safe, non-surgical alternative to liposuction. There are no incisions, no scarring, and no down time so you can do this procedure on your lunch break! The goal of mesotherapy is to get rid of cellulite and rejuvenate the skin. It is often used on the face and neck, midsection, or buttocks. Sometimes mesotherapy can be used for body sculpting instead of liposuction or laser therapy. 

Mesotherapy can reduce the appearance of belly fat, double chins, love handles, leg and buttock fat, under arm fat (bra bulge), and anywhere else cellulite collects. 

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a combination of medication, vitamins, and amino acids designed to break down fat cells under the skin and improve blood flow to the treated area. The formulation acts to dissolve the excess fat, destroy cellulite, and boost lymphatic drainage. 

Most patients have noticeable results after 2 or 3 sessions. The effects of mesotherapy can last for several months or even a year. A healthy diet and exercise routine should be followed for optimal results from mesotherapy treatments. 

Ideal candidates for mesotherapy have a BMI of 20 to 30. Try our BMI calculator above to see what yours is.

What to Expect

Mesotherapy is done as a series of injections during an office visit. You may receive up to 30 injections per treatment area during a single session, which can last about 20 minutes. Most patients require 7 to 10 treatments per area, depending on how much cellulite and fat you want to lose. In general, only one or two areas should be treated at a time. 

We will inject the medication wherever you want to blast away cellulite – your chin, upper arms, belly, thighs, etc. Mesotherapy needles are microneedles, not much bigger than an eyelash, so the procedure is virtually painless. After the procedure, there may be slight burning or itchiness for about an hour, and the injection site may be sore for a day or two. Minimal swelling and bruising may occur for up to 7 days. Allergic reactions are rare. 

Mesotherapy is not for everyone. 

If you have a history of stroke, recent cancer, or blood clots, or if you are pregnant, an insulin-dependent diabetic, or on multiple medications for heart disease, you are not a candidate for mesotherapy.

InBody 520 Analysis

At New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa, we highly recommend the InBody 520 body composition analysis (BCA). This tool will provide baseline measurements of your body, which we can use to identify goals for treatment and measure your progress. After a few weeks or a month of diet and exercise, you will begin to see improvements in your body composition analysis using the InBody 520.

Calculating your BMI alone can overestimate your obesity risk if you have a lot of lean muscle mass or water weight. The InBody 520 machine differentiates between general body fat, lean muscle, and water weight, with 99% accuracy. After a full body scan, you will receive an overall health evaluation report, including:

  • Measurements for your arms, legs, and torso
  • Body composition analysis (BCA) with lean body mass and intra and extra cellular water
  • Obesity evaluation and diagnosis
  • Muscle-fat analysis
  • Metabolic rate
  • Recommended daily caloric intake for weight control
  • And more

We want to make sure you lose weight in a safe and healthy manner. Ongoing body composition analysis is the best way to see if what you are doing is working on the inside and outside. Please call for pricing and book an appointment today for the InBody 520 screening.

Bio Wellness Screening

A bio wellness screening provides a completely painless, non-invasive method for gaining valuable information about the function and balance, or imbalance, of your body's organs and systems, as well as providing specific feedback to restore each system to a healthy balance.

These screenings provide information on current and potential medical issues. Screening for chronic preventable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension can identify a path for disease prevention and improved health.

This test is covered by most insurances. Call (281) 419-5544 to schedule a consultation and find out how this test can help you.

Micronutrient Testing

Feeling sluggish? Not getting the results you hoped for even though you are eating healthy and exercising? Maybe you want a custom nutrition plan based on your specific needs? No matter which of these applies to you, a micronutrient consultation and analysis could be the solution you’ve been waiting for. 

A nutrient deficiency can aid in diagnosing underlying conditions that may be contributing to weight-related problems. Vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant deficiencies have also been shown to suppress the immune system, increasing the risk of serious diseases including cancer and diabetes. Micronutrient testing goes beyond the standard lab tests done by most primary care doctors. With one blood test, we can find out exactly what nutrients you need and those you should avoid. 

Some of the most common micronutrient deficiencies include:

Vitamins: Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Biotin, Folate, Pantothenate
Minerals: Calcium Magnesium, Zinc, Copper
Amino Acids: Asparagine, Glutamine, Serine
Antioxidants: Alpha Lipoic Acid, Coenzye Q10, Cysteine, Glutathione, Selenium, Vitamin E
Carbohydrate Metabolism: Chromium, Fructose Sensitivity, Glucose-Insulin Metabolism
Fatty Acids: Oleic Acid
Metabolites: Choline, Inositol, Carnitine

Even if you eat a balanced diet, your body may not be absorbing essential micronutrients properly, but how do you know? Hormones and aging can drastically affect your micronutrient needs, too. If you feel like your metabolism is slow or if you never have enough energy to get through the day, there is probably something in your nutrient profile that needs to be addressed. Mood changes can also be related to a nutrient deficiency. 

Unlike traditional blood, serum, hair, and urine tests, micronutrient testing looks at how your white blood cells respond to varied environments of over 32 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. The results provide useful information about your metabolism rate, health risks, and dietary needs. Based on these results, our providers can recommend dietary changes and micronutrient supplements just for you!

Micronutrient testing may be covered by insurance. Make an appointment at New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa by calling (281) 419-5544. Find out how this test can help you today!

Clinical Pathology and Lab Testing

At New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa, our providers conduct a full spectrum of lab work and testing as part of your comprehensive care plan. Looking at your blood, saliva, and urine enables us to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be contributing to health problems including weight gain, diabetes, or thyroid disease. If you are at risk for a digestive disorder, food allergy or sensitivity, or nutrient deficiency, we can test for them with a simple blood sample. 

In addition to basic lab work to evaluate things like heart health, cholesterol, and blood sugar, we can perform:

  • Hormone testing
  • Micronutrient analysis
  • Gastrointestinal screening
  • Allergy testing
  • Drug testing
  • STD screening
  • And more

You may think blood work is expensive and inconvenient, but without it, we cannot create your custom treatment plan. Testing gives us the information we need to make accurate diagnoses. We offer upfront, affordable pricing for everyone, and most insurance plans are accepted.
