Integrity Health Spa Miami offers a range of options for individuals who wish to improve their health and wellbeing through medically supervised weight management. Pamela Merino, MD, Board-Certified in Obesity Medicine, leads our program. We have nutritionists on staff to provide you with ongoing support.
At Integrity Health Spa Miami, all of our weight loss programs have a solid foundation in medicine and begin with a free examination and Body Composition Test (BIA). The BIA test utilizes state-of-the-art technology to assess your “body composition”-the measurement of body fat in relation to lean body mass, which is an integral part of a health and nutrition assessment. We’ll monitor and track your weight loss progress until you reach your ideal weight.
Our expert staff is trained to provide individualized attention and accommodate your personal preferences in a caring environment and has been facilitating our patients’ weight loss and helping them to keep it off, for more than 30 years. We’ve designed our programs to help you and support you step by step, to your goal weight, transitioning you into the Maintenance Program to keep you on track towards optimal health.
Whether you’re trying to make a significant change or just shed a few pounds, we’ll design a medically supervised program tailored to your particular needs. Let us help you set realistic goals for weight loss success.
We’ll show you ways to avoid roadblocks along the way and how to deal with them when they do appear (like your favorite aunt’s apple pie).
We offer weight management tools, ranging from FDA-approved Natural Supplements with minimum supervision for patients who would like to drop a few pounds, to weekly visits under clinical care for those patients seeking to lose 10 pounds or more.
By now you may know that starting a diet is easy but staying on one, not so much. At Integrity Health Spa Miami, we can help you get started and keep steadfast in reaching a healthy weight. And here’s why it’s so important:
Obesity can lead to conditions like coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, arthritis, and many others including cancer. Obesity plays a role in comorbidities in more than 50% of the general population and is a leading cause of disease and death in the United States. On the positive side, losing weight is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of heart problems and other conditions. Take your first step the path to safe and effective weight loss.

A weight loss spa provides you with the knowledge and support to develop a healthy lifestyle, lose the weight, and keep it off. Our program focuses on:
Our In-House Nutritionist will meet with you and prepare you for the future and ongoing weight loss success. If you’re looking to lose less than ten pounds or want to lose weight at a slower pace, we can help with expert advice and natural supplements (that are FDA-approved).
If your weight loss goal is greater than ten pounds, we offer a weekly clinical program that can include lipotropic injections and an appetite suppressant as well as nutritional support from us. We build in accountability by measuring and weighing you weekly. We also include electrocardiogram testing (EKG) and laboratory exams to maintain optimal health and supervision.
We’ve designed our program with close medical supervision for your safety. We see improvement in most medical conditions with losing weight and make adjustments or take away some of your regular medications as you progress.
Together, we have lost over 600 pounds and reverted to diabetes and pre-diabetes. We want to help you eliminate medications for your regimen and get you to optimum levels of wellness.
While there are symptoms that may point to a disorder of the thyroid gland, which could affect your weight, the best and most accurate way to know for sure is by having a thorough medical checkup. When you have your annual wellness exam, express your concerns about your thyroid to your healthcare provider. In most cases, your doctor will include your thyroid levels in your blood tests.
Prepare yourself by setting goals. Think ahead to possible roadblocks along the way and how to deal with them. Plan a visit and talk to Dr. Merino about creating an eating plan that’s right for you. Remember, it’s never wise to follow fad diets, go without eating, or to try to lose weight too fast.
If stress, anxiety or boredom sometimes leads you straight to the fridge, be sure to have a strategy in place:
