All experts agree that obesity, even being overweight, contributes heavily to all degenerative disease. The United States Surgeon General stated that a failure to address excessive weight and obesity "could wipe out the gains we've made in areas such as heart disease, several forms of cancer, and other chronic health problems."
Although attempts to lose weight are common in the U.S., the prevalence of obesity has increased dramatically since the 1980's. Because of this, we believe you'll find the following body composition protocols very valuable
in supporting your patients' efforts to get control of their health. We've done this in steps to better match up to your patients needs and ability to follow through.
Basic Weight Management Protocol:
Intermediate Weight Management Protocol:
Basic Protocol plus:
non-stimulating thermogenic aid. Research has shown a 3 times greater weight loss than diet and exercise alone, with the majority of it coming from fat.
CLA group (not placebo) lost 6-8% of their body fat mass, while increasing their lean body mass
(muscle mass). CLA is particulary effective in reducing abdominal fat stores.
Full Weight Management Protocol:
Basic and Intermediate Protocol plus:
which is a derivative of T3 that has been shown to have a greater impact on increasing
resting metabolism than the thyroid hormone T3. It also has a much lower inhibitory effect on
TSH(Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) than T3, thus reducing a negative feedback impact on
long-term thyroid function. The effective use for fat loss, while not suppressing thyroid hormone levels, is to take the 2 capsules twice daily for not more than 10-12 weeks, then discontinue for the same amount of time before going back on it.
Additional Personalized Considerations: Chronic Inflammation
Patient also has an inflammatory condition (e.g. arthritis, inflammatory bowel,inflammatory skin, etc.) or has an elevated C-Reactive Protein (CRP) which is a general indicator of inflammation.
Indicated by the Raglan Postural blood pressure test: systolic blood pressure doesn't raise, or drops when going
from a lying to standing position.
high levels of cortisol (one of the fight or flight hormones) which can cause continued hunger and deposition of abdominal fat. Visceral fat (abdominal fat and fat surrounding our organs) is the "toxic" fat that increases risk for heart disease and diabetes.
Indicated by Axillary Temperature Test
Developing an Athletic Build
The first and only creatine that doesn't convert to creatinine in liquids before reaching muscle. Creatine is
involved in muscle energy production increasing both strength and recovery.
All the research on tribulus has been done on the Bulgarian product Tribestan. It contains the 30-40%
steroidal saponins needed for feedback to the pituitary to increase sex hormone production. This is similar
to resetting a thermostat, resulting in a greater anabolic/repairative effect for building muscle and reducing body fat. It is also very effective in treating male and female sexual dysfunction.
Glutamine is an important amino acid that helps to build and maintain muscle, boost the immune system, support gastrointestinal health, and sustain healthy growth hormone levels.
This is a homeopathic growth hormone (HGH) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) that, on an energenic basis, helps to strengthen cell signalling within the neuro-immuno-endocrine system. Patients who participated in a study using homeopathic HGH saw decreased fat, increased muscle, improved sleep, skin quality, and physical appearance. This is very good for anti-aging as it supports cell-to-cell communication and regulatory processes that decline as we age.
