Lisa is a 37 year old woman. She was frustrated with her inability to lose weight. Lisa felt like she was doing everything that she could to lose weight but it just would not come off.
Lisa’s story is similar to a lot of people that I encounter on a daily basis. The first step was to get her hormones balanced. By doing this she was able to sleep better, have the energy to exercise, and have the ability to recover better from exercising. This also gave her the motivation required to adjust her diet.
Lisa did the bioenergy test at the office and that gave us valuable information. We learned that she had to be on a no carb diet for her body’s metabolism. By working with our integrative nutrition specialist she was able to eat the right foods for her. Everyone has different sensitivities to carbohydrates and we were able to figure out the best percentage for her body.
We also uncovered that her thyroid needed to be adjusted even more than we had originally thought. The test gives us the information needed to truly optimize the thyroid levels.
We also uncovered the fact that she was exercising too hard and her body was storing fat as a result. The bioenergy test revealed the exact heart range that she needed to get in for her body to burn fat. As a result, she adjusted her exercise regimen.
Losing the unwanted fat is a process and Lisa is well on her way to attaining her goal. By using the information from the test results she has been able to fine tune her efforts and will achieve success. She now has the roadmap to success.
A common complaint among people is that they have low energy. Having low energy, or fatigue, means that you are tired when you want to be doing something. If you are one of those people suffering from fatigue, please understand that there are multiple reasons for having low energy.
The many causes of fatigue, or low energy include:
- Lack of quality sleep
- Sleep apnea
- Poor diet (especially high carb diets)
- Not drinking enough water
- Drinking excessive caffeine
- Low B vitamin levels
- Stress, Depression, Anxiety
- High and Low Cortisol levels
- Low Testosterone levels
- Low Thyroid levels
- Blood sugar fluctuations
- Blood pressure fluctuations
- Heart arrhythmias
- Underlying infections
- Lack of exercise
- Poor oxygen utilization
The list goes on….
If you suffer from low energy, it is advised to have blood work and an evaluation by a physician. If the initial evaluation is not helpful, instead of giving up you can get an integrative evaluation by a physician with additional training in anti-aging medicine. Your hormones and other aspects of health will be thoroughly evaluated. If needed, you can get a bio-energy test to further determine the underlying cause of your fatigue.
Feeling tired is not a fun way to live your life. The first step is to make sure that you eat a whole food diet, exercise regularly, breathe deeply, and give yourself time to get rest at night. As you address your lifestyle, have a complete evaluation to ensure that your health is optimized. With a little time and patience you can have the life that you desire and regain the energy to do the things that you enjoy.
Aging and degeneration is felt to be preceded by early onset mitochondrial dysfunction. The mitochondria are the engines (the power source) within every cell in your body. When the mitochondria stop functioning well, your body deteriorates and you age before you should.
Early onset mitochondrial dysfunction (EOMD) is the deterioration of your mitochondria prematurely. EOMD occurs due to a decrease in total oxygen utilization. This is caused by stress, toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, sleep deprivation, hormonal imbalances, hypoxia, infections, and inflammation.
EOMD can accelerate the aging process. The good news is that the processes that cause EOMD can be addressed and the dysfunction can be reversed. The degree of success in the anti-aging strategies that you utilize can be measured with Bio-Energy testing.
Bio-Energy Testing can assist us in adjusting your treatment program. It can also determine the best heart rate for your body to burn fat and to maximize fitness. Each body is different and the Bio-Energy test assists us in customizing your care.
