Beth Rocchio, MD has a passion for helping people discover what works for them on their weight loss and weight maintenance journey. As a young doctor and mother, she found herself 50 pounds overweight with a long list of symptoms and problems. When Dr. Beth used a holistic approach that included going beyond the physical, she lost 50 pounds in a year and has maintained it for 15 years. “I went from being an obese doctor to an obesity doctor,” she says.
She founded Integrated Medical Weight Loss with the mission of helping people find what works for them. “My mission is to help people who really want to change not just their weight, but change the way they approach it,” she says. Dr. Beth cultivates motivation for change and provides information and support for balanced eating and moving.
Real lasting change happens when the change comes from the inside out. Through education in various mind-body medicine approaches from Harvard, UMass, Kripalu, Omega Institute, UCSF and more, she has been able to teach people to be in the scientifically validated Relaxation Response, a state of mind in which change flows much more easily. “We use the three I’s: integrated (treating the whole person), individual (because each person is unique) and incremental (meaning we take it one visit at a time),” she says. “Every day people tell me this approach has helped them lose more weight and keep more off than they ever did, and in a way that’s kinder to themselves.”
