Metabolic Imbalance and How it Effects Weight Loss



Three factors must be addressed for any weight-loss plan to be a success: Diet, Lifestyle, and Metabolic Imbalance (MI). MI is a condition that relates to weight gain and occurs when the various organs and glands that regulate metabolism are not functioning properly.

The thyroid gland holds the master key to burning fat. An under active thyroid (hypothyroid) will make it difficult to lose weight. The adrenal glands are affected by chronic stress which raises cortisol levels, making it hard to get rid of stubborn belly fat.

As we age, the ovaries in women and the testis in men tend to produce fewer hormones. During perimenopause/menopause, less estrogen causes a compensatory increase in fat cells. In men and women, decreasing testosterone can contribute to a loss in muscle mass, which can also contribute to weight gain.

The liver and pancreas are negatively affected by a diet high in processed foods and sugar. This causes a problem with insulin regulation, resulting in weight gain and diabetes.

Heavy metal/chemical toxicity, yeast over-growth, and lack of physical activity are also contributing factors to MI and weight gain. In addition to blood and saliva testing, manual muscle testing techniques such as Nutrition Response Testing can identify which organs/glands are contributing to MI, the cause of the dysfunction, and the right supplementation to help restore balance.

Dr. Brian Walsh, Chiropractic Physician at CARE Natural Wellness Center performs a comprehensive assessment to identify and address Metabolic Imbalances and other conditions with a tailored health improvement program. For more information, call 321-728-1387.
