Ask Me Anything - Does Ozempic Cause “Stomach Paralysis”?

Ask Me Anything - Does Ozempic Cause “Stomach Paralysis”?

Each month we pose questions from the Sun Coast Community with our resident health expert Dr. Mark Rosenberg. He then shares his insights on how to make smart choices for your appearance and health.

Question 1: “Is it true that Ozempic causes “stomach paralysis”?”

Ozempic… Wegovy… Mounjaro…

The number of different weight loss jabs continues to mount.

And according to the media hype, these medications are going to save America from its ever expanding waistline.

But aside from the hefty price tag, relying on weight loss jabs to slim down poses all sorts of health risks.

Along with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain…

Growing numbers of people are complaining of “stomach paralysis”.

It’s as bad as it sounds.

Their stomach literally becomes paralyzed and can’t digest food properly.

This can then lead to regular vomiting and intestinal blockages, which in some cases has meant risky surgery to get them removed

I fear even more horrifying side effects will emerge as the popularity of these weight loss medications continues to soar.

So when patients ask me about giving Ozempic a try, I recommend they focus on eating more foods that help them feel full (which is essentially what Ozempic does).

Eating more protein rich snack foods… like eggs, greek yogurt with berries and nuts, or a handful of roasted chickpeas… will help you feel fuller quicker, and to cut back on unhealthy snacking.

Another suggestion is to give Shake It Away a try.

Shake It Away is a delicious breakfast smoothie I formulated that naturally fades your appetite… while nourishing your gut to improve digestion.

Lots of my patients have lost significant weight with Shake It Away, and it’s highly affordable too.

Question 2: “Is it true that brain fog is due to a leaky blood-brain barrier?”

The cause of “brain fog” had long eluded scientists and doctors.

Was it due to a lack of B vitamins? Dehydration? Or lack of sleep?

Well, a team of scientists from Trinity College, Dublin, recently solved the puzzle.

They discovered the cause of brain fog is a “leaky” blood-brain barrier.

See, there’s a wafer thin barrier that blocks toxins in your blood from entering your brain.

Scientists believe in some people this barrier has become “leaky”. This has then allowed toxins to enter their brain… impairing their memory, focus and causing the cloudy headed feeling of “brain fog”.

So what can you do to repair this blood-brain barrier… and relieve brain fog while improving your speed of thought?

A key way is boosting levels of a mineral I call the “brain building block”.

It’s a mineral that’s essential for repairing neural pathways and maintaining the blood-brain barrier. But which 80% of people are deficient in.

What is that mineral?

Magnesium!

But you can’t just take average off-the-shelf magnesium and expect results.

It has to be a special type called “magnesium L-threonate”, also known as MagTein.

Well, after finding out about the remarkable benefits of MagTein for speed of thought, mental sharpness, and sleep…

I formulated a delicious berry flavored smoothie called AccuThink… which provides a high potency dose of MagTein at bedtime.

You can then enjoy deep, health revitalizing sleep and awake feeling as mentally sharp as you did 9 years ago.

Question 3: “Do you have any tips for firming loose, saggy skin on my legs and arms?”

If you're frustrated with loose, saggy skin on your legs and arms and want to firm things up, I've got some tips for you.

First things first - stay hydrated. I cannot stress this enough. Drink plenty of water and use a moisturizing cream with ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E, and cocoa butter to keep your skin supple and plump.

Next up, use firming creams that contain retinoids, hyaluronic acid, or collagen. These ingredients can help boost skin elasticity and hydration. Apply the cream twice a day, preferably after a shower or bath.

Massaging your legs and arms with a gentle pressure and circular motions will also help stimulate blood flow, relax the muscles, and remove toxins. You can use a massage oil or lotion to enhance the effects.

If you’re interested in trying something more intense, you could give nonsurgical procedures such as radiofrequency or ultrasound a go. These approaches heat up the skin and stimulate collagen synthesis, resulting in firmer and smoother skin.

Another option is ReActivate.

ReActivate is specially formulated to help flush out the appearance of old, saggy skin cells called “senescent cells”.

They’re cells that have become old, lumpy and lifeless - but cling on the skin, making it look wrinkled and saggy.

But ReActivate helps flush those cells away, making way for fresh, tight, healthy skin.

The best part?

ReActivate works everywhere! This includes tightening the skin on your legs, arms, neck, and your face.
