What causes excessive weight gain?
There are always key reasons why people become overweight and can never seem to permanently keep the excess weight off:
  • The first is not enough oxygen or oxygen utilization.
  • The second is not enough structured water in the body or diet.
  • The third is a colloidal mineral deficiency in your body cells, especially zinc, chromium, vanadium and iodine/iodide.
  • The fourth is unsuspected low thyroid function, sometimes in conjunction with low adrenals and gondal function.
  • The fifth is poor digestive function.
  • The sixth is a congested liver, usually from low thyroid function and low fiber diets.
  • The seventh is lack of proper exercise, like regular physical yogal, or short sessions of high intense aerobics which only take 15 minutes a day after a 5 minute warm-up period. For folks who don't feel like exercising because they are so tired, that's ok. All they need do is start at the top and work their way down. And that means making a trip to a physician who practices complementary medicine and understands how to treat thyroid conditions properly. Believe me, sooner than later everyone will get their attitude and confidence to start exercising again once the first 5 bullet points are taken care of adequately.
Always restore the body's own self-healing system first. Then the "footing" of all other natural healing tools employed will have the advantage of driving forward from the high-ground.
What should I do if I suffer from high blood sugar?
  • The truth is, your body is its own best healer, and all you have to do is provide it what it needs as above, then step aside.
  • By going to my "Getting Started" tab, you can begin. It's that simple.
  • Pay especial attention to adding in more fiber and eating less carbohydrates, as well as the diet instructions pertaining to using a super-blender. This will provide you with delicious smoothies high in protein and fiber, the key to weight loss, in addition to proper thyroid medication when indicated.
  • By taking your basal underarm temperature before you get out of bed each morning, you can see if your thyroid may be low. The normal underarm temperature is 98.0oF ± 0.2oF. Until your levels of body thyroid hormone become optimal, weight gain will always come at a price, that is, once you loss it, it will come back. With each subsequent successful weight loss effort, it becomes more and more difficult to loss the wieght and easier and easier to gain it all back. Proper thyroid hormone levels stops this so long as a proper diet and exercise program are adhered to for life.
  • If you continue to experience difficulties, then its time to browse over my "Essential Links" tab for further resources.
