Blood Sugar and Weight Management
WEIGHT IS A SYMPTOM
At Curtis Nutrition, we assess what your present weight is a symptom of, for your body. Yes, you might have gained weight because of the 36 Hostess ding dongs you ate for breakfast. But, why do you crave those to begin with? Are you allergic to sugar? Have low functioning adrenals? Thyroid problems? No serotonin left in one cell in your whole body? There is a good possibility it could be metals, chemicals, microbes, food intolerances and scars that can be interfering with gland and organ function – all of which we look for here at our office. There is more to Weight Management than just trying to count calories.
Your body cannot break down fat unless it is at a certain level of health. You need to find out what is going on with your body so you can become healthy enough to actually lose weight and keep it off.
One thing for sure is that if your digestive tract isn’t working properly, this can cause you to gain weight. If you don’t digest your food properly, you will be hungry because you won’t be getting the nutrients out of your food.
Another part of the digestive tract that can cause cravings is your pancreas. This organ not working properly can eventually lead to Diabetes.
When your Liver and Gall Bladder are sluggish, it is very hard to process hormones, get rid of excess Estrogen and toxins or break down fat. All of this can lead to weight gain.
Problems or dysbiosis in the Gut can cause you to absorb 200 more calories per day which can really add up over time. It also contributes to Insulin Resistance and Diabetes.
What ever is going on with you is not going to go away on its own and will only get worse as the years go on. That means years of yo-yo dieting and poorer and poorer health – maybe even obesity and the health risks that come with that.
It isn’t necessary to suffer from any of the above symptoms. They can all be addressed with a proper assessment of what your body really needs to repair itself.
After a thorough interview and analysis, we can recommend a Designed Clinical Nutrition Program that includes diet, lifestyle adjustments and supplements, specifically tailored to you, to help you address your health concerns and goals.
