Metabolic Block Preventing Weight Loss Could Be Hormones

For years after I became a physician I used to believe that weight gain was simply due to eating too much and not exercising enough.  You know- calories in minus calories out, et cetera.  Goodness was I wrong!   I now understand that our tendency to seemingly gain weight just by “looking at  food” regardless of how much time we spend in the gym is in fact caused by a complex process of metabolic change that is a consequence of deficiency and imbalance of the critical hormones made by our pituitary, thyroid, adrenal and ovarian/testicular glands.  Some of these hormone changes are simply a result of getting older, but often these changes are worsened or accelerated by improper diet, environmental toxic chemicals and our stressful modern day “multi-tasking” lifestyle.

I know because I have learned how to help folks restore their bodies to a state where weight loss is able to be achieved and maintained.  I wish I HormoneBlogcould say there is a “magic pill”.   Unfortunately there is not.  In fact all too often pills are part of the problem!  Today I help people return to proper metabolic function through the use of nutritional supplementation, toxic clearance, restoring normal digestion, appropriate management of stress, sleep restoration and often with the use of appropriate  ideal doses of bioidentical hormone replacement.  I have found that  hormones may only need to be prescribed initially and can be tapered once normal gland function can be restored.

Our levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone decline substantially starting as early as age 30.  Autoimmune diseases frequently target our hormone-producing organs substantially disrupting hormone output and balance.  We now know that the substantial increase in frequency of these autoimmune conditions is related to our environmental exposures through air, food, water and skin (cosmetics).  The human body was never designed to deal with the quantity of toxins that we encounter in our world today!

By dealing with and correcting the factors that cause hormone deficiency and imbalance we can solve not only remove the metabolic block leading to weight loss, but also improve our moods, our sleep, our energy levels, our sex drive, our focus, our memory and regain a more youthful, vital outward appearance.  I really get a lot of satisfaction out of  teaching folks how to meet this challenge and guiding them through the process.  Anyone can accomplish this with commitment and I assure you it is worth the effort!

HORMONE DEFICIENCY LINKED TO CHRONIC ILLNESS

Do You Know Someone Suffering from:Anxious Woman

1. Fatigue

2. Insomnia/ Poor Sleep?

3. Hot Flashes and Night Sweats?

4. Weight Gain (even despite diet and exercise)?

5. Loss of Interest in Sex or Problems with Sexual Performance?

6. Problems with Memory and Focus?

7. Loss of the Joy of Living?

These symptoms are frequently indicators of significant deficiencies of key body hormones.  These critical substances play a role in all our body’s tissues and organs and imbalances contribute to inflammation-related diseases like obesity, autoimmunity, premature aging, mood and memory disorder, unexplained aches and pains, weakness and difficulty performing every day activities.

Although some attribute these hormone declines to “normal aging”, science has shown that our modern diet, our modern high stress lifestyle, our polluted environment, infections, and allergic sensitivities are often causes of early hormone disorders.

At Texas Integrative ENT and Allergy Dr. Taylor understands and addresses all the many factors that lead to cell and tissue malfunction that ultimately results in many chronic diseases including those related to hormones.  By identifying predisposing genetic factors, eliminating environmental toxic effects, implementing diet and lifestyle changes, replacing critically deficient vitamins and nutrients, and optimizing hormones using bioidentical hormone replacement when indicated he has helped many individuals move toward and maintain total health and wellness.
