How Do I Lose Weight?

There is an organizing wisdom in the Universe.

A person can work with and learn from this wisdom.

To work with the wisdom is to be proactive.

Dr. Patrick Dougherty

 

Support is so important when you have a goal, and especially when you want to lose weight. I have asked one of my main support people, Dr. Patrick Dougherty if he would be a guest blogger before the New Year!  Dr. Pat is the author of “Do you Wanna get Better?  The Future of Health Care” and co-author of Quantum Healing: The Synergy of Chiropractic and Reiki.

 

 In my recovery from surgery, Dr. Pat has been a godsend and I will share more about this later.

 How Do I Lose Weight?

 Sorry to make this complicated, but there are many factors to consider when it comes to losing weight. That is why the plan that works for one person does not always work for another.

 Many of you have probably heard the phrase, “calories in, calories out.” This means if you burn more calories than you eat you will lose weight. It is true that one of the best ways to lose weight is to simply eat less. Unfortunately, weight loss is not always that simple.

 The fly in the ointment when it comes to weight loss is hormones. Insulin and hypoglycemia kick off the hormone interference problem. Once a person consistently eats too many simple carbohydrates the hormone weight loss battle is on, and you likely end up the loser.

 Once insulin loses control of carbohydrate metabolism leptin, ghrelin, cortisol, estrogen, glucagon, and fat cells (yes fat is a hormone) get involved in a circular mess of hormone feedback loops. Next binding chemicals prevent thyroid and sex hormones from doing their job. The end result can be perpetual weight gain and no weight loss, even when you diet and exercise.

The answer is to find out what your underlying challenges are, and then address them. This might mean eliminating foods, taking supplements, changing your food plan to implement things like intermittent fasting, getting your nervous system to function better, eliminating toxins, even dealing with emotional issues.

 If you are one of those unfortunate souls who exercise, diet and still can’t lose weight; or even gain weight, it might be time to look deeper. I use Clinical Kinesiology muscle testing in my office to investigate all of the factors listed above. Then I will work with to tailor your diet to your individual challenges. Saliva and blood tests are available when necessary.

Valentine’s Day and Quantum Physics!

“What we often fail to realize is that the quantum field responds to what we are, not necessarily what we want.” 
― Greg KuhnHow Quantum Physicists Build New Beliefs

You might wonder what Quantum Physics has to do with Valentine’s Day, but as I learn more about Quantum Physics, I understand science is proving what many of us metaphysicians have been teaching for a long time.

As Greg Kuhn explains in his book Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Fail, “The science of the second scientific revolution shows us that the outside world is created by one’s inside world, not the other way around.”  What this means is what you experience, what you see or how you see things, comes from your inner world, your perception. Nothing you see is real, or right, or wrong for that matter. What you believe, what you understand, what you experience is based on your collective inner experience. As a therapist I have been working with clients for close to 20 years teaching this concept.

roses So, how does this relate to Valentine’s Day? The expectation around this holiday is enormous and because, whether you want to admit it or not, the gift you receive or give is directly related to how much you love or are loved. Whether you are contemplating what you want to give your loved one, or responding to what you receive; your perception is all that matters.

Have you ever bought a gift for someone and they misunderstood either the meaning of the gift or how important it was to you when you chose it? Have you ever had someone either give you an insignificant or wrong gift? Did anyone ever cancel a Valentine’s date with you at the last minute due to a crisis? What did you make it mean?

What is important is not the gift itself, but the meaning you give to it.

So, this Valentine’s Day, I’d like to invite you to do something different. Whatever happens or doesn’t happen; whatever you are given or not given; whatever you give or don’t give; let it be perfect. Detach from any self-talk and just be with the experience. Or if you prefer, be grateful for whatever happens, even if previously you would have been angry, disappointed or hurt. Just be grateful for any experience.

Practicing this will definitely shift your mood during this holiday and truly shift your whole life experience for the better. It takes practice, but please receive this as my Valentine’s gift to you!
