The average American puts about 300 chemicals on their body every day. That toxic load burdens the endocrine system, creating imbalances that lead to stubborn weight gain.
Your thyroid regulates so many body processes and it's disrupted repeatedly by medications, inflammation, radiation and dietary choices. One of the most prominent symptoms of hypothyroidism is weight gain.
Stress signals the body to release cortisol and chronic stress keeps cortisol levels on the rise. This fight or flight hormone is famous for keeping the weight on.
Weight control. Have you ever wondered why some people gain weight more easily than others? Or, why the pounds shed with exercise for your friend, but not for you? We are all incredibly unique and our weight gain and weight loss do not generally originate from the same set of circumstances. At Asheville Integrative Medicine we do look to diet and exercise for weight management tools, but we also look far beyond them to uncover where your body is out of balance in the first place. Once we discover WHY you’re having trouble with weight control then we can help you walk the path to regaining optimal health. You’re not alone and there IS hope.
