SAY GOOD BYE TO YOUR WEIGHT ISSUES FOR GOOD!

A NEW DISCOVERY IN OBESITY, INSULIN RESISTANCE, AND NON-ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER DISEASE

There are few words in our culture more loaded with negative meanings than “fat”. To be fat – especially in women – is often to feel like a social outcast. In contrast to being overly thin (“You can never be too thin”, as the saying goes), to be overly large is commonly regarded as a sign of greed and laziness – not to mention “unhealthiness”.

Yet the truth is far more complex and some researchers have concluded that the health risks of moderate obesity (about 11kg/28lb over the conventional height/weight chart limit) have been greatly exaggerated. Indeed, there is evidence that it is healthier than excessive thinness. It is perfectly possible to be fat and fit, while trying to get thin can seriously damage your health.
 

If you find it almost impossible to lose weight or struggle with chronic obesity, your gut bacteria could be to blame. The inner ecology of your digestive system can directly influence serious health conditions like obesity and diabetes!

Recently, scientists have started to speculate that gut bacteria may play an essential role in the development of obesity, insulin resistance, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)

You may not be familiar with NAFLD, but it is currently the most common liver disease worldwide, both in adults and in children, including 20% of the American population.

Gut bacteria may influence obesity and diabetes.

So far, instead of understanding what causes fatty liver, we only have a list of disorders that are associated with it. For example:
• Insulin resistance
• Obesity
• Hyperlipidaemia, or high cholesterol
• Diabetes mellitus (type II)
• High blood pressure

UNHEALTHY GUT BACTERIA CONTRIBUTE TO WEIGHT GAIN, INSULIN RESISTANCE, AND NAFLD

As it turns out, gut bacteria can play a deciding role in whether or not an individual struggles with weight loss.
Studies have found that both obese mice and obese human beings are more likely to carry a specific type of bacteria.   On the other hand, mice and humans that are thin and slender have an entirely different microbial community populating the gut.
As scientists looked deeper into the role that bacteria play in the development of obesity, they determined that changing the inner ecology of the gut with antibiotics, prebiotics, and probiotics can directly influence the development of obesity, diabetes, and NAFLD.
Other studies have found that changing the gut bacteria in mice with insulin resistance creates NAFLD. Insulin resistance is often a precursor to type II diabetes.


OBESITY CONNECTION: THE EFFECT OF LEAKY GUT

When it comes to NAFLD, obesity, and diabetes, physicians look signs of oxidative stress and inflammation. Often, the first place that they look is the digestive system.
This makes sense. The liver receives about 70% of its blood supply from the intestine. Because of this, the liver is the first line of defense against food, environmental toxins, and disease-causing bugs.

When the gut becomes permeable, or “leaky,” a lot of foreign material can make its way deeper into the body, where it doesn’t belong.   Oftentimes, the first stop is the liver.

One hallmark of leaky gut is the presence of bacterial endotoxin, which irritates and inflames the lining of the intestinal wall. In those who have an inflamed and irritated gut lining, we often see endotoxin and other traces of gut bacteria in the liver.

Bacterial endotoxin, or lipopolysaccharide (LPS), is a component of the cell wall of some bacteria. Endotoxin is widely understood as a pro-inflammatory agent in the body. This means that wherever you find endotoxin, you will most likely find oxidative damage, inflammation, and disease.
Another hallmark of leaky gut is something called small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)

SIBO is exactly as it sounds. It is a situation where bacteria have grown to such proportions that they generate digestive discomfort like heartburn and, in some cases, have a hand in the development of more chronic forms of disease.
It turns out that small intestinal bacterial overgrowth occurs in a large percentage of people with chronic liver disease.


THE IMPORTANCE OF DIET AND HEALTHY GUT BACTERIA

Currently, scientists are investigating which strains of bacteria do what. Once they determine which beneficial bugs are best suited for certain diseases, a probiotic drug can be developed.18
Until then, researchers are coming to the same conclusions over and over again: diet matters.
What we eat influences which bacteria populate the gut.
What we eat can also influence intestinal permeability. In fact, those with celiac disease have a notoriously permeable gut. They also are more likely to develop NAFLD.
When we eat fermented foods and drink probiotic beverages, such as coconut water kefir, we receive a complete spectrum of good bacteria that have many health benefits. This includes helping to seal the lining of a leaky gut and combating oxidative stress.
As interest in our inner ecology grows in the medical field, researchers are finding that gut bacteria have huge therapeutic potential.

The Health Transformer Approach


Meta Health Scan 5 Step Protocol

In every case of Obesity there is an underlying cause…something individual to each person.   If at one time you didn’t have these symptoms and now do, obviously something has changed in your system in order that these symptoms have been produced.   Obesity is merely a symptom of the underlying cause.   To treat Obesity effectively and naturally we need to address the cause. In this centre we specialize in root cause diagnosis of any health condition using our state of the art Meta Health Scan.


5 Step Protocol

1. Detect (In-Depth Evaluation & Advanced Testing)
2. Detox (Heavy Metals, Chemicals, Hydrocarbons, Bleaches, EMF)
3. Eliminate (Pathogens…virus, post virus, bacteria, parasites, fungi)
4. Rebuild (Tissues & Pathways)
5. Rebalance organs (kidneys, liver, etc.)

The 5 Steps to Restoring Health Protocol had been developed following many years of research and experience and utilizes food, nutritional supplements, herbal and energetic formula
The Meta Health Scan is carried out utilizing the amazing diagnostic ability of Clinical Kinesiology.   It is reliable, accurate and reproducible. The scan will reveal the imbalances unique to your body, and how these are affecting you.   The scan reveals such issues as endogenous bio-toxicity, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sub-clinical infections, allergies and food sensitivities.  We also test for organ imbalances, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut.    Any abnormality in these areas will easily be picked up during the Health Scan. We also examine your entire lifestyle, sleep quality and any emotional/psychological contributors to your condition.

In-Depth Consultation regarding your results.

Once this information is gathered we offer you an in-depth consultation to discuss your results, during which we discuss what has been revealed by the scan, where and how this has arisen, and how to remove or transform it, and reboot your system.   I believe it is very important for each person to understand what has been going on in their body, how the condition has developed, and how to unravel and resolve it naturally.   My intention is not just to teach you about your condition, but more importantly to empower you with understanding in order that you are able to take back control of your health.

Individually tailored Treatment Plan 

Together we create an individualized tailored treatment plan for you.   This may include some or all of there: a gentle detoxification protocol, dietary changes, specific supplements, life style changes, exercise, etc tailored to your specific needs. In the majority of cases treatment can be implemented by you at home without the need for repeated visits to the centre; however Health Coaching and support is built in to this package to assist you through your treatment.


Supportive Treatments

Once on the prescribed treatment, some clients choose to support their system with other therapies toastiest healing.   This is not essential but will speed up your progress.   These include;

 

all of which are on offer at this centre.


I am delighted to be able to report that the results our client’s achieve with this approach are outstanding and lasting in the vast majority of cases.
