Weight Loss Q & A

Naturkur Wellness Center

What causes weight gain?

Obesity is a severe problem in the United States, and recent estimates suggest that by 2030, half of all Americans will be obese, though most people believe they should lose weight or be within a healthy weight range.

Weight gain isn’t as simple as how much you eat, though that is important. The primary underlying cause of weight gain is a damaged metabolism, which can be caused by numerous factors, including:

  • Hormone imbalance
  • Insulin resistance
  • Elevated, chronic stress levels
  • Poor sleep quality or habits
  • Toxic exposure
  • Poor nutritional habits
  • Inadequate levels or types of exercise

These factors damage your ability to lose weight effectively, despite your best efforts at low-calorie diets or other weight loss plans.  

What is the naturopathic approach to weight loss?

The naturopathic approach to weight loss appreciates that your causes for weight gain and weight loss resistance are specific to you. At Naturkur Wellness Center, you begin with a Health Strategy Session and hormone testing, which helps your provider gain a comprehensive view of your health.

Based on a thorough assessment of your health, your provider creates a treatment plan that may include:

  • Hormone-balancing treatments
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement
  • Botanical medicines
  • Diet and nutritional therapy
  • Detoxification treatments, including Clearlight Sauna
  • Naturkur Wellness Center professional supplements
  • Health coaching, education, and counseling

Goals of naturopathic weight loss are to heal your metabolism, correct hormone imbalance, and treat the underlying causes that make you weight loss-resistant.

How can weight loss improve other health conditions?

Healthy weight loss is known to help improve many health conditions brought on by obesity and which progress more rapidly when your metabolism is damaged.

Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance or the body’s inability to keep up with the needed amounts of insulin to manage your metabolism. With healthy weight loss and a focus on healing your metabolism, you can improve and/or reverse your symptoms.

Other conditions that may be improved or reversed with healthy weight loss include:

  • Heart disease
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Elevated or high blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Fibromyalgia and chronic pain

At Naturkur Wellness Center, we create transformational health programs that equip you for not only losing weight, but also for reaching your optimal level of health in every area.
