If you have struggled with your weight for years, you have probably heard over and over again that you need to be on a weight loss plan. You may have even tried many plans in the past with varied success, and you may have given up entirely. A natural weight loss plan with our doctors can help you achieve success, and there are some great reasons to move forward and try again.
You may not realize it, but the extra weight you are carrying affects the health of your joints. Osteoarthritis is very common in obese individuals, and one of the best ways to alleviate stress on joints is to lose weight so that they have less to bear. Even losing just 20 pounds can make a huge difference in the stress on your knees and elbows.
Boost Your Immune System
Having excess body fat affects your health in a lot of ways. Body fat is actually an active endocrine organ, which means that it secretes hormones and cytokines, or cell signaling molecules. When you have too much body fat, hormones and cytokines are not produced in normal amounts. This can throw off a lot of things about your health, but one of the big ones is that your immune system will suffer.
Control Chronic Illness
If you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, thyroid issues, hormone imbalances, heart conditions, or diabetes, losing weight can help you control your chronic illness so that you can be less reliant on medications and other treatments. With our supportive staff, we can help you lose weight effectively so that you can get the most benefit.
