Plagues and infectious diseases that were previously the leading causes of death were largely eliminated with medical advances like vaccines and improvements in living conditions. Now, instead, we are plagued by chronic degenerative diseases. Several changes have occurred since the end of World War II that have contributed to the decline of our microbiomes and, from that, dysbiosis and the development of disease.
Our physical and mental health are largely dependent on the balance of the gastrointestinal (GI) system because of the gut-brain connection between the intestinal tract and the brain. Dysbiosis, the “disruption of the intestinal microbial ecosystem,” can cause GI, neurological, cardiovascular, and several other types of diseases. So, it is important for our health that our intestinal microbiomes are rich and diverse.
Almost half of the U.S. adult population is obese. Obesity can result from diet, lack of physical activity, socioeconomic factors, genetics, and even chemicals in the environment. Low level exposure to obesogenic chemicals, found in food, water, air, etc., contributes to obesity, and can also affect hormone activity, metabolism, and fat cell formation. The main chemicals include: BPA, phthalates, PBDEs, PFCs, OC pesticides, and PCBs.
So many conflicting published reports from scientific Ivory Towers. Now a savvy 9 year old can verify facts and #TrackTheTruth
I have treated firefighters for the past 15 years, blogged about their increased risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease and now about their obesity associated mortality.
Peptide therapy is an evolving, cutting edge, medical science in which specific, bio-identical, protein amino acid sequences called "peptides" are used to repair, regenerate, support and improve the structure and function of different parts of the mind and body.
Some of our HCG patients have motivated us to go beyond our original HCG diet. They successfully took off their intended weight loss from the first cycle and now they want to ramp up to finish the job. Now more important than ever as obesity is a risk factor for Covid-19. Lose the weight before the holiday pounds keep adding up.
Could "Non-Stick" do the opposite for the pounds?
Is a transformed body on your wish list this year?
