Nutritional Therapy & Natural Medicine

Weight Problems

Being overweight can often be related to eating the wrong foods rather than too great a quantity, though many people also have cravings for sugar and chocolate. Cravings can be overcome by improving blood sugar control. As the brain needs glucose to function, it demands it when blood sugar levels drop, leading to sugar cravings. Cells become sluggish when their mineral levels are wrong, leading to accumulation of fluid in the tissues. Fat is stored round the body, but cutting out certain types of essential fats leads to problems. A nutritional therapist will draw up a dietary regime and suggest supplements that will enable a steady weight loss by improving cellular energy. You will not be hungry on the diet, and the quantities of food recommended may well seem greater than previously.
