Functional Medicine For Weight Loss

Functional Medicine For Weight Loss


Posted By on Jul 14, 2023

Not surprisingly, weight gain and obesity are on the rise! According to the National Institute of Health, conditions casually related to obesity include arthritis, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, liver disease, low back pain and colorectal cancer, just to name a few. Weight gain affects our self-confidence and lowers quality of life measurements such as mood and energy. That said, there is hope! It doesn’t have to be this way; there are solutions! Studies have informed us that weight control is not simply a result of calories in and calories out. It is much more complex than that and involves a detailed understanding of one’s metabolism, hormone balance, gut bacteria, inflammatory status and brain health. For example, did you know that in your intestine there are 2 phyla (groups) of bacteria called Bacteroides and Firmicutes and that the ratio of these bacteria controls how your body manages fat? A high F/B ratio has been unequivocally associated with obesity and these results have been confirmed by many studies. Have you struggled with gas and bloating, consumed refined, highly processed foods or used antibiotics? As a result, your gut bacteria may be causing you to absorb excess calories in a process called ‘energy harvesting’ or inappropriately store fat centrally (visceral fat or VAT), ie. belly fat. This is just one of the many underlying processes that influence our body composition regardless of diet and exercise. Guided by the Functional Medicine model, these impairments can be identified, targeted and solved. Also, some products to support your weight loss journey are: MIC B Injection This mixture for injection is called MIC B-Complex and named after the first letters of the components (Methionine, Inositol, Choline, B-complex vitamins). Many weight loss clinics around the United States use this same formula for their patients Trim IV Fights age-related fatigue Boosts heart function Improves exercise function Enhances Metabolism Ingredients: L-Carnitine, L-Taurine, Chromium Chloride Metabolism Matrix Contains cinnamon and chromium for improved insulin sensitivity and blood sugar regulation Withania Somnifera provides stress support and cortisol balancing, also necessary for proper blood glucose control Other herbal extracts such as green tea extract, green coffee bean extract and garcinia cambogia act to directly stimulate metabolism and aid in healthy weight maintenance. You can also search for guidance and support with our partner Nicole Arseneau, nutrition and body transformation coach. As the owner of Innerstrong Fitness, affiliated with the Centre for Advanced Medicine, her motivation is to help women get fit, find balance and achieve their full potential. We are looking forward to helping you on your journey! Call us to book your free 30-minute...

First of all, you will be wondering what is eczema? Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that commonly appears during infancy and childhood. It affects close to 20% of children. But, what does it look like? Eczema often presents as dry skin with red and itchy patches that may ooze, crust, appear scaly or harden. And can eczema spread? It can come and go and migrate around the body but is often seen on the areas where we flex (e.g. inner elbows and back of knees). How Do Naturopathic Doctors Treat Eczema? Eczema is one of the most common pediatric complaints we see in clinic. Naturopathic doctors apply a unique paradigm in eczema treatment by targeting the underlying factors that are triggering an inflammatory response in the skin. A thorough naturopathic assessment combined with relevant functional medicine testing can be done to gain a better understanding of the root causes or triggers that are unique to every patient. What Are Some Common Eczema Causes? The causes are often multi-factorial and there are many potential underlying factors. These can range from genetics, food and environmental sensitivities, vitamin and mineral insufficiencies, sluggish elimination pathways, impaired inflammatory response patterns, overactive immune response, cortisol dysregulation to digestive and gut imbalances. All of which need to be assessed properly by a naturopathic doctor. What Are Some Common Naturopathic Treatments for Eczema? Well, that would depend on what is causing or triggering the skin inflammation that we see with eczema. Treatment plans are customized to suit the needs of every patient and may include vitamin/mineral supplementation, herbal medicine, diet and nutrition, homeopathy, and traditional Chinese medicinals. About the Author Dr. Vivian Bizios ND focuses on pediatric health and can be consulted with at our clinic. Get in touch for a free 15 min...
