These are the strategies we use for true, lasting, weight loss:
Hormone balancing – Every hormone plays a part! Cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, insulin; our endocrine system is an orchestra
Detoxification and Drainage – We are toxic! A build up of cellular toxins from pesticides, chemicals, medications, and acids will inhibit important cellular enzymes from doing their job, and lead to a hypo-metabolic state
Acid-Base balance – While the body does a stead-fast job of keeping us in the proper acid-base balance to sustain life, a low grade acid build up depletes us of important minerals that otherwise would be helping our metabolism. Also, the acids cause the body to retain fat and water as a buffer. What a brilliant way for the body to protect itself! Regulate pH and your body will not need to retain those buffers.
Gastro-intestinal healing – Anti-biotics, oral contraceptives, over the counter medications, our demineralised foods, stress, junk-foods, additives, candida, all contribute to a sub optimal process of breaking down our food, assimilating it into our cells and tissues, and eliminating the waste. The hub of our metabolism comes from our digestive tract.
Self-care – Sleep, play, stress management, spirituality, emotional balance and the mind-body connection, water, sunshine, nature, socializing, pets and animals are all fundamental necessities for a healthy body, and weight loss.
Using in-office tests, questionnaires, your health history, and/or lab tests, we will peel away the layers of obstacles stopping you from feeling your best.
