Do you struggle with your weight?

This is a common issue for many people.  With the many fad diet's available, it is easy to feel over whelmed and helpless when it comes to losing weight.  That is why working with a Naturopathic Doctor or Holistic Nutritionist can be so helpful. Not only for their experience and advice, but also the encouragement and accountability that goes along with working one-on-one with a trained professional.

Being overweight is defined as being 20-30% above the normal/average body weight for someone of the same age, gender, and height.  Normal body fat percentage is between 20-27% for women and 13-17% for men. There are many reasons why a person can struggle with getting their body composition into a better zone and these include:  Poor digestion, hormone issues (female hormones, thyroid issues), stress, lack of proper education regarding healthy foods and portion sizes, lack of exercise as well as overall health.

Since there are so many potential issues, it is clear that one size does not fit all when it comes to choosing a plan most suited to you. 

As such, it is important to work with an experienced healthcare practitioner to ensure you are on an effective yet safe road to success.

What are my treatment options? 

Most healthcare providers believe that overweight individuals should try to lose weight gradually. This reduces the risk of nutritional deficiencies, a slower metabolism and increases the likelihood of long-term success.

Conventional approaches: 

It is well known by the medical community that being overweight is associated with many forms of chronic disease. Unfortunately however most medical doctors do not have enough time to educate patients and provide the ongoing care that is necessary to support patients trying to loose weight. Weight loss medications are available and may be prescribed but they have many side effects.  Surgical procedures are also available, however if the root cause of the weight gain hasn't been identified, the weight often comes back.

Complimentary Healthcare Options:

Most people know that a healthy diet and regular exercise are important aspects of a successful weight loss plan.  Less known are factors like the presence of food intolerances, mental-emotional concerns and also hormone imbalances.  Identifying one or more of these will go a long way to help lose the weight and also keeping it off.
