Naturopaths in Adelaide – Weight loss support you can trust

Are you having problems losing weight? Many patients we see here at the naturopath in Adelaide often have chronic health issues resulting in excessive weight. Did you know that PCOS and hormonal issues can cause problems with your weight loss goals?

Often people have been on countless diets only to regain all or more weight resulting in overwhelming frustration and often depression. Is this you? Do you have those feelings of failure and worthlessness around your body image and weight loss? That extra weight as you know will have detrimental influences on your physical and psychological well-being; catch 22, now you feel bad about yourself again? Don’t, it’s time to come in or Skype for a consultation to learn why things are going wrong and how to get back on track and regain your confidence in yourself, your body and your future.

There are numerous reasons as to why you may have gained excess body fat, have problems losing weight, or maintaining your weight after dieting, other than lifestyle and eating habits. Naturopathy is based on treating the cause of health issues and not just the symptoms; the same approach applies when addressing weight problems, the cause needs to be found and treated before adequate and life long weight control can be achieved.

Do you suffer from any of these issues? Some of the causes for resistant weight loss, regaining weight after dieting are:

  • Insulin Resistance
  • Thyroid Gland Dysfunction
  • Sex Hormone Imbalances
  • Fatty Liver
  • Toxicity
  • Inflammation
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Genetic Influences
  • Abnormal Appetite Regulation
  • Medication Related
  • Anxiety and emotional eating
  • Insomnia

Not only can these have an impact on your body composition, but also affect your health and well-being, thus treating your weight issues will often also correct many other health issues you may be suffering from at the same time. Our Natural Weight Loss Programs include an assessment of your medical history, dietary habits, insomnia and sleep habits and pathology testing to find out what may be the cause of your weight problems.

If your weight gain is purely caused by over eating around Christmas or during holidays then this can easily be corrected with a gentle detox/cleansing program and some extra physical activities with the guidance of our naturopath in Adelaide, Southern Suburbs along with hypnosis, to be completed ideally at least once or twice per year. Beware of quick weight loss programs or detox options from a retail shop or chemist as these generally only make you lose lots of water weight and muscle, which can initiate the commonly experienced cycle of weight loss followed by more weight gain. Want to start right away? The Mediterranean diet is the diet we recommend here at naturopath in Adelaide as this diet is supported with real evidence from many years and population groups.

Also avoiding steroids is imperative as their side effects can often be just as horrible as the initial problem that you want to resolve!

Research undertaken here in Australia indicates that individuals with HIV and lowered T-cell count (it’s a kind of lymphocyte (a white blood cell subtype) that is essential for cell-mediated immunity and are distinguished by the presence of a T-cell receptor on their surface). Why is this little bit of science jargon important to you? Well, it means that we can increase your ability to get well and repair after illness and injury!
