Why do we overeat?

Overeating usually fills a need. Some people overeat to compensate for an unpleasant experience. Others eat excessively to reward themselves or simply for self-entertainment. Some want to be noticed, feel a lack of love, to offset fear, overcome frustration, boredom, and and stress.

There are many reasons people become overweight - hormone imbalances, slowed metabolism, overeating, poor nutrition, digestive problems, toxin overload and lack of exercise are some of the most common. Using holistic health techniques can be especially helpful, especially for women who are over the age of 45.  Many women get to the point where they can no longer lose weight.  At this point they will need to be tested with a QRA Practitioner to discover their deficiencies and toxic load. 



Acupuncture:

The rationale for using acupuncture for weight control is based in the premise that weight gain could be the result of disturbed energy flow. The guiding principal is that acupuncture can power up any other weight control strategy by curbing appetite, quelling cravings, improving digestion, regulating obesity-related hormones and enhancing the way nutrients are used.

The acupuncturist Mike Moore has observed positive results when using acupuncture to curb cravings. "To curb cravings, there is a point near the right ear I focus on during treatment. When I activated the energy flow from that point, some women began dropping dress sizes within weeks of treatment.”





Hypnosis:
Hypnosis is a powerful, proven program that re-educates your subconscious mind, the part that creates cravings and impulses, quickly and more easily than you ever imagined possible. Hypnosis helps maintain the motivation for weight loss. Permanent weight loss occurs with a change in lifestyle, not diets that are impossible to maintain. With hypnosis, clients desire and consume a much smaller amount of food without giving up their favorite foods and drink. Hypnosis can help clients feel more full, more satisfied after eating a small amount of a desired food, enjoying the quality, not the quantity.


QRA Testing:

Unlock the precise vitamin, mineral and supplements support needed to achieve weight loss through QRA (Quantum Reflex Analysis) testing. It is a non-toxic way to remove infection, and restore good digestion and hormone balance. QRA testing provides a comprehensive system to assess the body’s biofield (or aura) to initiate the most rapid resolution for even the most complex patient; simply not possible by any other methodology. The human body is surrounded by a biofield that reflects the condition of the person's body and spirit. QRA re-balances and repairs the biofield, bringing healing in mind and body using supplements, eliminating interference from scar/trauma sites and depolarizing negative thought patterns and emotional trauma.




Supplements:
Losing weight can be a slow process. Our supplements use superior ingredients and they have passed our rigorous Quantum Reflex Analysis testing standards. QRA tests identify supplements with toxic tag-alongs like magnesium stearate, talcum powder, and mono sodium glutamate. Below is a list of supplements specifically for weight loss.

Green Tea-ND

Green tea leaves are high in polyphenols, which boost the metabolism.  Green Tea-ND contains polyphenols pre-digested into extremely small particles which absorb into the blood stream where it can immediately go to work.




Max-B

Those with a vitamin B deficiency can experience fatigue and weakness. When Max B is used to address this deficiency, it is an energy enhancer and metabolism booster.

Lean Advantage

Premier quality,biocompatible formula designed to support healthy weight management,lean body mass and glycemic metabolism.  Formulated with Green Coffee Bean, Raspberry Ketones and AdvantraZ Bitter Orange Extract for advanced lipid metabolism and fatty acid oxidation.




Adaptogen

Adaptogens are certain herbs particularly helpful in restoring and maintaining positive homeostasis, the body’s natural ability to balance internal and external stress, which can cause unwanted weight gain. The Adaptogen supplement we sell contains Nopal cactus, Fo Ti, Rhodiola Rosea and Ecklonia Cava.

Fat Stat

These supplements promote healthy weight maintenance and energy levels. It does not cause harsh weight loss effects or contain over-stimulating ephedra.

HCL

This formula is 100% beet-derived betaine hydrochloric acid created to assist the body’s natural stomach acids in the digestion of absorption of nutrients, especially protein, vitamin B12, calcium, iron and other minerals.  




Premier Digest

We recommend taking Premier Digest after every meal with cooked food. These supplements contain protease to digest protein, amylase to digest carbohydrates and lipase to digest fat. Some of Premier Digest’s active ingredients come from the Noni fruit, which is native to Southeast Asia. 


Yoga and Belly Dancing



Yoga
In 2005, medical researcher and practicing yogi Alan Kristal, DPH, MPH, set out to do a medical study on the weight-loss effects of yoga. With funding from the National Cancer Institute, Kristal and colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle led a trial involving 15,500 healthy, middle-aged men and women. All completed a survey recalling their physical activity (including yoga) and their weight between the ages of 45 and 55. Researchers then analyzed the data, teasing out other factors that could influence weight change – such as diet or other forms of exercise. The end result: They found yoga could indeed help people shed pounds, or at least keep them from gaining weight.   "Those practicing yoga who were overweight to start with lost about 5 pounds during the same time period those not practicing yoga gained 14 pounds," says Kristal.



Belly Dancing
Estimates for the number of calories burned by dancing vary widely from 180 to 500. The reason for the range? If you are practicing your undulations or snake arms, you're probably working in the 180-calories-an-hour range. If you are rehearsing a vigorous dance with lots of jumping, then you may be working in the 300 to 500 calorie per hour range.
The aerobic exercise works large muscle groups, and the dance enhances strength and coordination of small muscle groups in the trunk, hips, and arms.







Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon Hydrotherapy helps a person lose toxic waste and increase the body’s metabolic rate at the same time. Though results may vary, individuals can lose up to 10 pounds of fecal matter from an appointment(s). Researchers in America and Europe have demonstrated that people from first-world nations carry from 10 to 50 pounds of accumulated toxic materials, with the majority stored in the colon. Accumulated toxic waste materials slow down metabolism, beginning after age 25 to 30. Heather’s Holistic Health uses state-of-the-art equipment that gently introduces purified water into the colon. During a colon hydrotherapy session, warm filtered water enters into the rectum and circulates throughout the colon, dissolving and removing its contents, while the client lies comfortably on a table. A trained and experienced colon hydrotherapist controls the water pressure and temperature.
