How can Naturopathy help me lose weight?
Naturopathy takes a natural and holistic outlook on health and vitality, focusing on not one, but all elements of living a healthy lifestyle. The basis of naturopathy is in the value of eating a healthy diet, staying well-hydrated, establishing good gut health for digestion and managing stress for better quality of life.
Eating a healthy diet
Eating a healthy diet is arguably the most important factor when it comes to weight loss and weight maintenance. There are a number of diets specific to weight loss that can be successful, and we can assess which method will be the best for you.
One of the diets we recommend the most often is the HcG diet as it’s easy to follow, doesn’t require any special diet products, makes people feel great during and after and delivers weight loss results quickly. Most people lose between 1 – 2 kg of Fat per week. Click here to see some of our great results. The best part is that the diet doesn’t require a rigorous exercise program to see results! For more information on the HcG diet, you can read our article here.
There are a million and one reasons to drink water, and weight loss is one of them. In fact, hydration plays a key role in losing weight and improving overall health naturally. Drinking enough water for your body each day promotes waste removal, boosts fat and carbohydrate burning, and acts as a natural appetite suppressant. Drinking 2L per day is a great guide though if you drink tea or coffee you may need to increase to compensate for the caffeine and subsequent fluid loss caused by its diuretic effect.
Gut health is one of the most undervalued aspects of wellness, and influences everything from your mental health and sleep quality through to your digestion and metabolism. Gut bacteria can also affect how your body produces ghrelin (the hormone that makes you hungry) and leptin (the hormone that makes you feel satiated and full). This means that simply diversifying your microbiome could help solve a number of widely common digestive issues.
Stress is often a culprit when it comes to weight gain, so managing your stress levels is hugely important for losing or maintaining a healthy weight and improving quality of life. The stress hormone known as cortisol is produced in greater quantities during stressful times. Cortisol can also increase your insulin levels, leaving you craving sugary, fatty foods. Higher levels of cortisol is usually the reason we choose ‘comfort foods’ when we’re stressed, so lowering and managing our stress is crucial for maintaining a healthy diet and losing weight.
