Weight Gain

Having Trouble Losing Weight? 
Here are six possible reasons why and how Dr. Widenbaum can help:


Is a hormone imbalance the cause of your weight problem? 
Before, during and after menopause, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid and adrenal hormones are often out of balance, which can slow down your metabolism. Dr. Widenbaum has a unique understanding of how hormone imbalances can cause weight gain, fatigue, irritability, low-libido, and a host of other challenges. Dr. Widenbaum can order blood or urine tests to check for hormone imbalances which are often key factors in weight loss.


Do you often give in to your sweet cravings? 
Dr. Widenbaum offers natural solutions to your food cravings and mood challenges. After filling out a symptom questionnaire you will discover if your cravings and weight gain are due to depleted brain chemistry caused by too much dieting and inadequate protein, unstable blood sugar, low thyroid function, hormonal imbalances, food addictions and a deficiency of “good” fats. You will learn how to eliminate these imbalances with a personalized nutritional strategy. Using amino acids to jump-start the program, you’ll feel your mood improve and food cravings disappear — usually within twenty-four hours. We also provide nutritional solutions to overcoming depression, anxiety, apathy, oversensitivity and emotional eating. We can also help you eliminate insomnia and hormone related moodiness.


Are emotional issues stopping you from losing weight?
Underlying most weight problems are emotional and body image issues. Unless these are addressed, it is difficult to lose weight and keep it off. With a gentle and compassionate presence, Dr. Widenbaum helps you to identify and release emotional imbalances in the body. By using specific Brain-Based Therapy, Dr. Widenbaum can assist you in healing your emotional issues, and end the emotional connection to certain foods so you’ll not only look more attractive, you will feel more attractive.


Trouble losing weight because of food sensitivities and intolerances?
Dr. Widenbaum tests for food sensitivities and intolerances, as they are one of the main causes of weight gain. By incorporating this knowledge as well as a focus on proper food combining, he will create an individualized dietary plan that is right for you.


Can’t lose weight because your body is too acidic?
pH Testing and Weight — The latest information on stubborn weight loss problems is that your body holds onto fat to protect itself from an acidic condition. Excess junk food in your diet, lack of sleep, high stress levels and an out-of-balance mineral ratio can influence the pH levels to become too acidic. In order to maintain the ideal pH for your blood, your body will leach the calcium (that is alkaline) right out of your bones and magnesium from your muscles. This can lead to brittle bones and tight, sore, achy muscles. One reason for consistent results in our program is that we will give you pH paper to monitor the pH of your urine to make sure that it’s not too acidic. If it is, we will give you supplements that balance your pH as well as a healthy alkalizing diet. This makes it possible for the fat to easily come off, even if it was difficult prior to treatment.


Do you need help kick-starting your metabolism? 
Speed up your weight loss by helping your liver to remove toxins and produce fat-burning hormones. All six fat-burning hormones do their work through the liver, and if your metabolism is sluggish, your liver may be damaged which makes it more difficult to produce all six of these hormones. In addition, the chemicals in our foods, growth hormones in meats and dairy, alcohol, caffeine, refined sugars, refined carbohydrates, and pollutants in our air and water supply also contribute to a toxic liver. Our Liver Detoxification and Enhancement Program gives the liver a rest from these chemical insults and gives it the nutritional support and the detoxification it needs to return to normal function. A healthy liver can greatly enhance weight loss.
