Obesity

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

Often, it is a combination of stressors affecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit that creates the imbalance that leads to a weight disorder.  Lifestyle “choices” are not easily changed. Work and home environments, the impact of food availability, the 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!
