Defining yourself- again

This past week I met with two health professionals who wanted to know what I did.  This wasn’t a type of elevator pitch situation.  This was an hour of talking ‘shop’, so to speak itunes 64 bit windows 7 deutsch kostenlos.  One was a physical therapist, the other a medical staff office manager both were starting to get very interested in integrated wellness.  Both thought that I basically told people how to eat in a more healthy manor lustige videos für whatsapp gratisen.  Discussed food groups, calories, understand food labels, how to shop and how to throw together quick healthy meals.

Weight Loss and Food Intolerance

Many of us struggle with trying new programs, or cutting back on calories, striving to reach weight and fitness goals. Some of us will succeed, some not video schneiden kostenlos downloaden deutsch. Unfortunately, the successful ones are the minority . Lifestyle is exactly that- a lifestyle for all times, not just a short term fix.

 

Over the past decade doctors and health professionals are becoming more and more focused on food sensitivities and intolerances lieder youtube herunterladen mac. Research has found that when removing foods that were reactive to your specific body chemistry people felt healthier and they lost weight. Food intolerances involve brain chemicals that trigger food addiction, they alter the body’s individual rate of metabolism and it damages blood vessels that causes edema.   Some ‘healthy’ foods may not be right for YOU fotos von sd karte herunterladen. Lettuce, kale, lamb, fish, olives, nuts and other ‘healthy’ food may not be health for your body chemistry.

 

In the past 50 years our diet has changed drastically herunterladen. Our same digestive enzymes that were needed to digest fruit and vegetables and free range meats must now deal with huge amounts of preservatives, chemical fertilizers, insecticides and antibiotics in our foods windows media player 10 kostenlosen deutsch. Our enzymes are depleted and our immune system takes over to protect us from the toxic consequences of the food we eat.

 

How does a food intolerance affect your ability to loose weight?   The offending food or chemical *” knocks the body’s biochemistry out of balance synology dateien herunterladen nicht möglich. As a result, the body becomes sluggish, the immunce system becomes impaired , the digestive track develops leaks, insulin and other hormones become imbalanced, and the body loses control of the neurotransmitters that control appetite.”   In short, your body is having difficulty keeping in balance t mobile contract downloaden.

A Different approach to increasing concerns

 

Being a holistic nutritionist for the past 17 years has introduced me to a number of people who struggle with weight loss along with inflammation, brain fog, digestive disturbances, diabetes and general fatigue wiso steuererklärung herunterladen. I do believe that lifestyle is medicine and being aware of personal patterns and creating a balance of clean eating, regular exercise, rest and relaxation and a bit of spiritual intervention can help clear up many basic issues new whatsapp version for free. Most individuals are skeptical, most dive into deprivation only to turn to bingeing and a loss of self esteem and confidence. Our world has been consumed by replacing clean unadulterated foods with chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, GMO’s, soil depletion, additives and colorings herunterladen.

 

I have found most of my clients feeling fabulous after a 10 or 25 day ‘cleanse’. It is a bit restrictive in the variety of foods one eats, but not restrictive in the amounts- no one ever goes hungry. Sugars, gluten, various vegetables, fruits, condiments ( think ketchup or bbq sauce) along with processed foods and fake sugars are eliminated. Is it suprising that most individuals feel fabulous? Is it surprising that most find this hard? It is not surprising the wake up call that every person has who does the cleanse and repeats it every year or so. You have given your body a break from processing foods that are not natural for our system. Yet, everybody is chemically different and has different needs.
