Hey everyone I’m Dr. Anya Temer, Medical Director of Total Holistic Center.
If you’re struggling to lose weight, struggling with weight loss resistance, or even if you can lose weight but tend to gain it back chances are you’re eating the wrong foods for your body.
There are a few possible causes for your weight issues. Today I will discuss three of the most common – food intolerance, inflammation and insulin resistance.
When you eat foods that your intolerant to, this spikes inflammation which causes harm to your digestive and immune systems. Inflammation and insulin resistance both make your body hold on to extra water and fat.
That is why our Wellness Program is designed to determine what foods your body should avoid to function at its optimum.
We test over a hundred different foods to determine exactly how your body reacts.
Since many diets leave you with micronutrient deficiencies.
We check all the vital nutrients, your essential fatty acids, amino acids, and hormones.
For example, this patient was struggling to keep weight off. She tried a few different programs but the weight always came back. She was frustrated and felt it was unlikely anything could help her keep the weight off. Then her friend referred her to us.
We discussed her health history and ran a full-spectrum analysis in our office and saw inflammatory reactions to dairy, eggs and gluten. In addition we diagnosed her with the beginning stage of metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance which means most carbs were not right for her. We worked within her current eating habits to find delicious and simple substitutions. We taught her how to eat right for her health.
With this new knowledge this patient was easily able to avoid inflammatory foods and lost 20 pounds in 6 weeks without feeling like she was dieting, hungry or deprived. Best of all, after 4 months she has not regained the weight. She is finally off the weight roller coaster.
To summarize: You can either lose weight by using chemicals, medications and unsustainable eating practices that greatly limit your calories which gives results but sets you up to regain the weight. This leads to feeling like a failure. Alternatively, you can become healthy and lose the weight for good. Your choice!
I always say that Your weight usually follows your health.
