Update: Trying to loose weight? Considering Cool Sculpting or something invasive like liposuction. Take a look at Cold Laser first. At this point in time in Wisconsin (11/18/2017) the laws are vague if chiropractors can offer services like Cold Laser for weight loss/body re-contouring. But if you live in the Madison area there are clinics offering these services in Rockford which is only an hour away. You can learn more about this at: MyZerona.com
I’ve noticed through my years of practice that people who are overweight also have a lot of health concerns and symptoms. They don’t think their symptoms have anything to do with their weight gain however. Instead they usually seek out doctors who treat their symptoms, but in doing so, the person loses health and gains weight in the process. I like doing the opposite…Have people gain health while getting rid of the underlying causes of their symptoms and then their weight slowly changes.
I don’t focus my practice on weight loss for one simple reason. People want huge results quickly and they don’t want to learn what’s really going on in their body. They’re looking for quick fixes and if they don’t work, they move on to something else. This isn’t a criticism, it’s just reality. At the same time, a lot of educating needs to be done for weight loss and there are lots of other practitioners that want to focus on this and will do a better job teaching than me. However, this page will explain some very interesting things that might benefit you greatly. I would be happy to help you with enzyme supplementation and weight loss if you’re willing to gain health while you’re losing weight. My focus is improving structure and creating massive health in people. Enzyme supplementation is part of that.
Here is a quick list of symptoms that I see in overweight people:Heartburn, Acid Reflux, Indigestion, Constipation, Diarrhea, water retention, inflammation, pain, swelling, craving of carbs just to name a few. These problems are just as much a part of your weight gain as your diet is. Simply going on a diet without addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms isn’t logical weight loss and usually results in defeat.
What causes Weight Gain?
This is an important question that needs serious answers in our country. I believe there are several causes of weight gain (not in any order of importance).
- Having a clogged lymphatic system
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Eating too much
- Decreased sensitivity to insulin
- Carbohydrate cravings that cannot be satisfied
- The belief that fat puts on weight
- The belief that carbohydrates don’t make you fat
- The chemicals in our food that cause addiction
- The ease at which we get junk food
- The lack of nutrient dense foods
- The lack of enzymes in our food
- The lack of vitamins and minerals in our food
- Soda pop, candy and snacks galore
- Lack of exercise
- Systemic Inflammation
- Overuse of medications
Now this is a long list I realize, but when you look at it you have to realize that it’s a complicated problem. I’ll cover several of these briefly.
Eating too much
A person can decrease their intake of food and lose weight but decrease their health as a consequence. Therefore when they start eating normally again, they gain more weight back than they initially lost.
Decreased sensitivity to insulin
This is a big one that many of you have. Here’s how this works. Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas when you eat sugar or starchy food like pasta, bread, cereal. When you eat these foods, they’re broken down into sugar. Since your body is always trying to regulate the amount of sugar in your blood stream, it quickly realizes that blood sugar levels are rising quickly and secretes insulin into the blood stream.
Insulin molecules attach to receptor sites on every cell of your body telling those cells to suck a little of the sugar out of the blood stream and pull it into itself and burn it for fuel or turn it into fat for storage later. This is normal. Now besides the fact that people are eating way too much sugar and starches (ie carbs), there’s another problem and that’s fat digestion.
Now how could fat digestion have anything to do with insulin and diabetes? It’s really easy and you won’t hear this anywhere else which is really sad. Remember I said that insulin attaches to receptor sites on every cell of your body? Well when you don’t digest fat properly, you end up having fat molecules floating around in your blood stream that clog up the insulin receptor sites. That makes the insulin close to if not completely useless depending on how clogged your receptor sites are.The result is you have high insulin levels multiple times a day…This destroys your Pancreas over time…This leads to diabetes where you have to inject insulin after every meal.
Diabetes is a fat problem way before it’s a sugar problem.
I discuss this in the Lymphatic and Metabolic Syndrome sections in detail. These problems need to be addressed if you’re going to lose weight and keep it off. There is a way to get rid of the cravings by actually providing your body with the nutrition it’s craving but NOT getting. Have you ever asked yourself why you crave carbs? Why you crave fats? Why you crave meat? Here’s the general rule of thumb. You crave what you can’t digest.
It’s funny when I look at a persons list of symptoms and find several problems related to carbohydrate deficiency. I’ll tell the person they’re deficient in carbs and they look at me like I’m nuts. They’ll say, that’s all they eat. Carbs, carbs and more carbs. I’ll say, that’s right. You crave what you cannot digest and deliver to your cells. It’s kind of hard to lose weight when you’re hungry and craving food. How would you like to get rid of those cravings? It’s possible, by giving your body what it needs in a format that can satisfy your cells needs. I have a specific product that does this very thing. It’s a source of carbs, protein, fat and digestive enzymes to make it all work. The nutrition actually gets to your cells and your cravings subside.
I am happy to help you restore health and lose weight in the process. My methods are slow, but very powerful in dealing with the long term problems that created the weight gain in the first place. If you’re looking for a quicker ‘fix’, try something different then my methods. But if you’re willing to go slow, you’ll not only lose weight in the long run, but most if not all of the symptoms your having will disappear. Your life will be much more enjoyable and fulfilling without having chronic health problems.
