90% of patients lose at least 10% of their body weight during the 10-week program and keep it off for good. 

Get Started

A 10-week program unlike any other to lose weight, gain health, and prevent disease

1:1 Medical Management

Dr. Sowa will order labs and complete an extensive intake with you to understand your medical history. Most patients will get a prescription for a GLP-1 medication, but your treatment plan will be personalized to your specific needs. 

Group Coaching

Each week, Dr. Sowa hosts a live Zoom call to coach you through the habit foundations that support lasting weight loss. And no it’s not “eat less and move more.” Most patients find her approach extremely refreshing and simple! 

Food Foundations and Recipes

The SoWell method is different than a diet or regimented meal plan. Instead of dictating a strict plan, Dr. Sowa will empower you with food guidelines that you can modify to fit your lifestyle. 

Mental and Emotional Support

Losing weight is a hugely mental and emotional process, which is why a huge focus in this program is frequent face-to-face check-ins and tools to help navigate mental or emotional blocks as they arise.

Medications We May Prescribe 


Zepbound is currently the most effective weight loss medication on the market. In trials, patients safely lost 25% of their body weight on this medication. Zepbound shares the same key ingredient as Mounjaro called tirzepatide. 


Wegovy is a GLP-1 weight loss medication that shares the same key ingredient as Ozempic: semaglutide. It’s highly effective for weight loss with patients losing an average of 15% of their body weight in clinical trials. 


This oral medication is taken twice daily to help reduce appetite and reduce cravings. Its key ingredients are naltrexone and bupropion. Bupropion is also an antidepressant, so this medication can also help with mood.
