After a thorough health history to establish that you are a candidate for this Holistic Weight Loss approach, we assess and your adrenal hormone levels with a simple lab test that you complete at home and mail into the lab. Your adrenal hormones will tell us a lot about how your body using food. For instance, we almost always see patients with high levels of the stress hormone cortisol report that they crave sugar. This is just an example, but a common one.
Here’s what makes our approach different- we don’t start trying to fix your hormone levels directly. That’s the quick fix approach that doesn’t yield lasting results. Instead, we start addressing the factors that are affecting your adrenal hormones, educate you on how this relates to your food choices, and then start teaching you how to eat (and exercise), and sleep, and deal with stressors. This is what lets you finally change your eating habits so you can really actually develop a Stronger, Leaner and Better version of yourself.
Think about it- the basic formula for losing weight has never really changed: eat fewer calories than you need to start burning stored body fat, right? Super simple, yes? But so many of us struggle with that. We feel an urge to eat things we know will make us less healthy, but we can’t resist. That’s because you likely have underlying adrenal hormone imbalances that are driving cravings. We can fix this..Frequently, our Holistic Weight Loss clients have one or more of these symptoms:
- Difficulty losing weight
- Digestive problems like gas, diarrhea, constipation, and so on.
