When a new client or patient walks into your office or drops into your inbox with the phrase, “I am just desperate to lose weight”, do you wince? Many practitioners who are savvy with other entrenched chronic dis-ease dynamics find requests for sustainable weight loss to be particularly daunting. Because, as we all well know,losing some weight is often straightforward; it’s keeping it off that proves challenging and usually frustrating.
This clinical tip video is a deep cut from the archives but a powerful one I don’t want you to miss! (It was actually my very first FB Live video.) We don’t need data to know that overweight and obesity are skyrocketing issues; we see it in our practices every day. Excess weight (and especially excess fat, regardless of weight) is nearly always a symptom of other dis-ease in the body, but it can also be a major contributor to downstream diseases. A vicious cycle.

A collection of powerful hormones are usually involved as well as some curious habits that might surprise you. But most importantly, my whole perspective on weight loss as a goal may (finally) make you excited – and confident! – about serving these particularly frustrated patients and clients.
