Weight Loss:

Losing excess weight is not easy – it can be a struggle – physically, emotionally and mentally.

Fad diets, lose weight quick programmes may be short lived in their outcomes, for many reasons, and leave people feeling downhearted and useless so they give up trying.

The outcome of carrying excess weight can lead to diabetes, heart attack, high cholesterol levels, joint/knee problems to name a few.

Perhaps if we understand that perception of obesity has many complex interrelating causes – Stress, life style, diet, environment, age, genetics, emotional needs – anxiety, loneliness, depression, - often the feeling of not being loved can be hugely significant.

So there is not one way or one treatment to fit all, help must be holistically tailored to meet individual needs.

Often before the issue of weight can be addressed we need to look first at treating the causes rather than just the symptoms. If we only treat the symptoms, they may disappear for a while but they can return.

Treat the cause and the symptoms disperse by themselves.

What Can we Do to help?

Treatments can be offered aimed at bringing balance to an disordered system.

Therapies alone cannot make fat disappear but they can address the health problems which accompany being overweight.

For example, correct stimulation of the endocrine system helps regulate the metabolism which in turn affects other functions which brought together can have life changing effects on health, well being and motivation.

  • 1. Consult your doctor. Eliminate any medical reasons for your weight gain. For example, your doctor may test to determine blood sugar levels that may be an indicator of diabetes and test thyroid activity.
  • 2. If your doctor gives approval, seek advise on an appropriate diet and exercise programme. Your practice nurse may be able to advise.
  • 3. To support your diet and exercise programme investigate with your therapist if there is an imbalance in the energy systems of the body.

The foods we eat can by themselves create imbalances – if we have a low blood sugar level our bodies find it difficult to break down complex carbohydrates so we may find there is a craving for foods such as cakes, biscuits and sugary sweets – this raises our insulin levels but which quickly drop down again leaving a feeling that we must eat more sugar again.

So an imbalance is created which the bodies own self regulatory mechanisms cannot cope with resulting in an diabetic condition.
