This is probably not the first article that you have read on weight loss so let me get right down to the point, the focus of my approach with my patients;
I address weight loss as much as I address the factors of “dis – ease”. These are the physical, endocrine, gastrointestinal and neurological factors that so often hamper our bodies to do what they’re supposed to do when we are eating well, taking supplements and even exercising. – But maybe are not seeing the results that we think we should.
The first thing we do is address your nutritional status.
Your nutritional intake status will always be the core of ANY upgrade to your health whether you want to lose weight or circumvent chronic diseases. Included below are examples of chronic issues I consult patients for on a daily basis with successful outcomes.
- hypertension (high blood pressure)
- high cholesterol
- sleep dysfunction
- candida (yeast overgrowth)
- UTIs (urinary tract infections)
- GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease)
- resistant weight loss
Our bodies need nutrients to function
We were designed to eat all the macronutrients each day; protein, carbohydrates, fats, fiber and water too. One may need guidance with what, how and even when to eat. It is confusing these days as there is a lot of erroneous information and claims out there. Our food supply is also changing and we have to pay more attention to what is in our food and from where it is grown and how it gets to us.
We provide knowledge about actual food and meals. We specifically address what foods will work for you and fit into your lifestyle and schedule so you can achieve your goals. Subtle changes in the diet can truly impact in downgrading disease and increase vitality.
In my practice, for example
I worked with a patient, a relatively healthy individual that couldn’t shed excess adipose (fat) and retained water (bloat). Water and fiber intake were fairly substantial and even with starting a more consistent, 30% increase in weekly exercise and more positive meals (more nutritious, less processed) for more than a month. – Hardly any loss! – Needless to say, the patient was frustrated.
This patient, upon stating our plan revealed that BMs (Bowel Movements) were only up to 4 times per week.
This is where a bit of clinical intervention is crucial. With targeted dietary and supplement changes daily elimination was achieved and normal weight loss followed. Learning to have managed this has been a lifelong change for this patient
These types of chronic issues too often are initially treated with over-the-counter medications and even prescription drugs when the first approach should be “correcting” the body naturally and holistically. Restored function, in this case weight loss, can be achieved with some macro-nutrient re-distribution and targeted supplementation.
So you see, we do need to consider the bodies’ deficiencies and dysfunctions and target the natural approaches that create a well working machine.
If you suffer from “chronic diseases” which are clinically known as; long standing signs and symptoms that are not resolved with medications, not prevented by vaccines and never become self-limiting – you need to upgrade your health. – Otherwise, your bodily systems will be continually taxed and other functions like fighting infections, viral overloads, daily rejuvenation and weight loss will continually be lacking.
I invite you to DO IT NOW, manage your chronic challenges and create your best you.
