Obesity is a common, serious and costly trend that continues to increase over the years.
According to the CDC, more than 1/3 (36.5%) of U.S. adults are obese.
Obesity related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, and some of the leading causes of preventable deaths.
Every year billions are spent on obesity related medical costs. Conversely, the weight loss industry gains billions instituting their quick weight loss plans.
From counting calories, to increasing exercise, to weight loss groups as Weight Watchers, each is targeted to convince you that their method of weight loss is what you need.
However, too many have experienced the devastation of increased weight after such program is stopped.
Factors that may influence weight gain –

– Improper eating habits – lack of wholesome foods and portion control
– Lack of exercise
– Increased stress
– Nutrient deficiencies
– Food allergies/sensitivities
– Chronic disease
– Improper detoxification – as lack of daily bowel movements
– Environmental toxin exposure – synthetic food additives, pesticides/herbicides, household chemicals, etc.

How we treat weight loss naturally:
Every weight loss plan we implement is unique. For this reason, it is important to take a complete history, assess lifestyle habits that include diet, exercise sleep, detoxification of the body, medications/supplements, mental/emotional state and lab work to determine all factors that may be involved in the manifestation of symptoms.
Often we incorporate a detox program that will enhance detoxification, improving organ function as kidney filtration while at the same time deceasing inflammation and pain, reducing obstacles to improved function.
For instance, if you are not having 1-3 bowel movements daily this may impact increased toxicity preventing optimal function. It is important to note that as we remove obstacles that hinder proper function, we will begin to see great improvements.
Based on the information we gather, we will make necessary adjustments where appropriate for healing and restoration of proper body function, which in turn will result in the desired result of weight loss.
Many may struggle with weight gain, but the factors that influence may vary.
When it comes to weight loss, it’s not about a “diet” rather a lifestyle change we incorporate that will result in the long-term benefits of proper weight, reduced risk of chronic diseases and overall improved quality of life.
The methods we use to help with weight loss can vary, however, each plan is tailored to the individual.
