Keep your weight steady
The number of overweight people has increased sharply in recent decades.
Many people complain of weight issues. People concerned are often unable to lose weight and their body weight continues to increase, despite reduced food intake. The more irregular their eating and the more frequently they diet, the more the body seems to provide and to store fat.
Weight problems are not always connected with eating habits. The cause often lies in hormonal imbalances and reduced metabolism.
The distribution of water and fat in our body is largely controlled by hormones. In order to be able to lose weight, the thyroid and sex hormones should be in balance.
The ratio of oestradiol to testosterone and progesterone is very important, as are thyroid and stress hormones and leptin (appetite-suppressing hormone).
A progesterone level that is too high or too low can cause weight gain. Fat reduction is inhibited by a low testosterone level.
Reduced thyroid function puts metabolism on a low burner.
A high level of cortisol, which accompanies chronic stress, can also cause weight gain.
Miscolonisation of the intestinal flora, insulin resistance etc. can equally impede weight loss.
An appropriate diagnosis, including hormone assessments, metabolic analysis and assessment of the intestinal flora, is important. Individually customised treatment with micronutrients as well as nutritional and lifestyle advice may help you achieve your desired weight..
