People who are overweight or obese could gain ten years’ worth of health benefits by simply losing 20 pounds. (That’s 1 year for every 2 lbs lost!)
Modest weight loss (average 14 lbs) reduced the risk of individuals developing Type 2 diabetes by 58%. Weight loss of just 10% of a person’s body weight has been shown to have long-term impact on sleep apnea, hypertension, quality of life, and to slow the decline in mobility that occurs as people age. American Psychological Association, July 2012
I’m sure this information isn’t exactly mind-blowing for most of you, however, sometimes needs to be reviewed. We see so many symptoms that people present with that we find are actually due from the lifestyle that led them into their obesity or the toxicities that accompany their obesity!
We have also learned that obesity is usually NOT primarily a calorie IN vs. calorie OUT problem. It is more often a HORMONE balancing problem! …some of you reading this already knew something was up when you saw that starving and exercising didn’t work out too well for you.
So we have 3 basic methodologies for helping our patients lose weight; 1) specific low-carb diets or Paleo-type eating recommendations and 2) combining #1 with various homeopathic formulas to balance blood sugar, hormones and metabolism as well as 3) our Homeopathic “Ha2cg” & Detox/Fat Loss program for more significant fat loss goals.
In every case though, exercise is paramount! But believe it or not, there are specific types of exercise that BURN fat and some that actually can result in fat GAIN!
It is also important to note that not all people are eligible for the Homeopathic “Ha2cg” & Detox/Fat Loss program in our office. If you are interested to learn more, please call us at 847-426-2121.
