The 4 body types show different hormonal and metabolic characteristics which play an important role in where weight is gained.
Which body type are you?
Syndrome X questionnaire is designed to help determine if you may have the common metabolic imbalance known as Syndrome X. This condition may make weight loss very difficult unless you are armed with the nutritional strategies to rebalance your hormones and metabolism.
We are all exposed to significant levels of toxins on a daily basis. Toxic metabolites can build up in the blood and fatty tissues in the body. This will overwork the liver leading to a reduction in the ability of the liver to burn fat. In those with body toxicity and liver dysfunction, weight loss is much slower.
Are you a "couch potato"? Exercise is an important part of any weight loss or lifestyle improvement regime.
Stress plays an important role in your ability to lose weight. Many people are "comfort eaters" and eat to fill up the "empty hole" inside. For others, the stress response can induce metabolic imbalances making the body store fat more readily.
The hypothyroid questionnaire is designed to check for the common symptoms of thyroid dysfunction. The onset of hypothyroidism is typically insidious; this means that symptoms are often inconspicuous or non specific and vague. This accounts for the fact that this condition is often missed until advanced stages of the disease.
Fatty liver is a very common condition in today's world. It is characterized by fatty deposits replacing healthy liver tissue and may take years to develop. Nutritional medicine is the only approach to reverse this condition.
NOTE: If you are on the pill this questionnaire will not be relevant. You will need to stop taking the pill for 3 months in order to make this questionnaire relevant. The pill artificially lowers male hormone levels.
Your liver is –
The major fat burning organ in your body
The filter and cleanser of your blood stream
The detoxification factory of your body
The energy production factory of your body
Thus it’s going to have a lot to do with metabolism, weight control and immune function.
Curiously we never seem to give this vital organ a second thought, which is neglectful in this day and age of a toxic environment and rampant obesity.
The Chinese sages of health call the liver - “The General of the Army of the Body” and the Cabot Health team agree that the liver is the most strategic organ in the human body.
