Body Composition

 

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:

UltraMeal is a medical food designed to target fat loss and to nutritionally support the management of conditions associated with altered body composition.
Contains nutritional neurotransmitter precursors that beneficially satisfy the reward cascade of the brain thus reducing carbohydrate/calorie cravings.

Full Weight Management Protocol:

Basic and Intermediate Protocol plus:

This is a thermogenic agent and a bio-stimulator that improves energy balance in the body. This is accomplished by enhancing oxygen utilization and nutrient saturation of blood and tissue, boosting the metabolism.

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.
EPA-DHA helps lessen chronic high levels of pro-inflammatory insulin that results in insulin resistance and storage of fat. It also activates PPARS in cells which increases the burning of body fat (increases thermogenesis), increases insulin sensitivity, while decreasing levels of inflammation.

Stress/Adrenal Fatigue

Indicated by the Raglan Postural blood pressure test: systolic blood pressure doesn’t raise, or drops when going from a lying to standing position.
This herbal adaptogenic formula is designed to enhance stamina and energy, as well as support a healthy, balanced response to stress. Chronic stress produces chronically 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.

Hypo-thyroidism

Indicated by Axillary Temperature Test
Both formulas are complete nutritional supports to thyroid function. When thyroid levels are too low, body processes start slowing down. The body produces less heat and energy, and organs like the brain and bowels move more slowly. People also notice that they feel colder, tire easily, get drier skin, and become more forgetful and depressed.

Developing an Athletic Build

This high quality whey protein was shown in a recent study out of the Journal of Nutrition to reduce energy intake, along with visceral and subcutaneous fat. It also reduced plasma insulin concentration and improved insulin sensitivity. Another article showed a clear reduction in abdominal obesity with a high protein intake. For the greatest support to muscle repair/building, take at 1.5 grams per pound of body weight per day. Recent accurate studies show no stress to the kidneys/liver at this level of protein intake.
Also take on days not working out. 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.
