All weight issues affect your health – not enough body weight as well as too much!

by Sharon Erdrich

Often it is a combination of stressors affecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit that creates the imbalance that lead to a weight disorder. Lifestyle “choices” do not always present a range of options that allow great choices. Work and home environments are not easily changed. The impact of food availability, culture around food plus the nature of time-compressed activities all add considerably to our abilities to change and maintain healthy dietary habits.

Lifestyle patterns of activity (movement and exercise), food choices and eating patterns can all alter your metabolism and create imbalances in the ability to absorb important nutrients and and eliminate waste effectively. Such imbalances need to be addressed in order to lose weight and keep it off!
