Dr. Nirvana’s Weight Loss Programs at a Glance – Fast and Easy Answers to Weight Loss
The modern day, “eternal” struggle, is weight loss. There is no end to the challenges of maintaining a healthy weight. We’re too busy to exercise and cook all of the right things. Our grocery stores and restaurants are filled with too many foods that are bad for us. We can’t digest properly. We don’t get enough good sleep. And, our hormones – are, our silent enemy in our daily battle for losing weight. Luckily you have many options when it comes to fast, easy weight loss.
Dr. Nirvana’s unique approaches to weight loss encompass a wide range of health issues from hormones, diet, genetics and healing the body from the inside-out. As a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Nirvana’s highly specialized training in going to the “root’ cause of the issue, as opposed to using a medical band-aid that solely provides temporary results…typically found in the Allopathic world of conventional medicine.
The relationship between weight gain and health is not solely a physical effect, it impacts the body in a number of dangerous ways. Beyond this physical stress, the hormones produced by fatty tissue break down cartilage in our joints. So even though our lower extremities (knees, hips, feet and low back) bear most of the burden, our entire body feels the inflammatory effects of extra fat. With these biomechanical and metabolic effects, overweight people are four times more likely to suffer from arthritis, imbalanced hormones, and heart disease. Needless to say, even more reasons to make weight loss a health goal.
Regardless of your overall weight, having a large amount of belly fat increases your risk of:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
- Colorectal cancer
- Imbalanced hormones
Age and Genetics may hinder Weight Loss
Your weight is largely determined by how you balance the calories you eat with the energy you burn. If you eat too much and exercise too little, you’re likely to pack on excess pounds — including belly fat.
Aging does play a role too. As you age, you lose muscle — especially if you’re not physically active. Loss of muscle mass decreases the rate at which your body uses calories, which can make it more challenging to maintain a healthy weight and more efficient weight loss.
Your genes also can contribute to your chances of being overweight or obese, as well as play a role in where you store fat. However, balancing the calories you consume with activity can help prevent weight gain, despite your age and genetics.
The following vitamin shots and natural weight loss programs are focused on addressing a multitude of issues that contribute to weight loss in the body.
