If you are trying to lose weight, take heart, you are definitely not alone. According to a 1995 report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), tens of millions of Americans are dieting at any given time, spending more than $33 billion yearly on weight-reduction products, such as diet foods and drinks.
National Center for Health Statistics show that obesity in the United States is actually on the rise in the last 20 years. Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome (also known as Syndrome X) are the 2 largest health epidemics facing America today, accounting for over 50% of all prescription medications! Currently, about 65 percent of Americans are overweight while 35 percent of women and 31 percent of men age 20 and older are considered obese (30% or more above recommended BMI), up from approximately 30 percent and 25 percent, respectively, in 1980. What’s worse is that children are becoming more obese as well. Obesity is a major crisis facing our country as it is a significant cause of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, sleep disorders, cancer, fatigue and many others.
Why are we unsuccessful as a nation regarding weight loss? Several reasons: stress, environmental and dietary toxins, processed foods, Insulin resistance (Metabolic Syndrome), time constraints, no energy for exercise, and the list goes on and on. Many of the diet products on the market have dangerous side-effects or they are ineffective in the long term. People experience ‘relapse’ where they easily return to their ‘pre-diet’ weight or gain even more. The body stores toxins in fat, as far away from the vital organs as possible. Because the body is storing its ‘garbage’ there, it is reluctant to let go of the fat when you attempt to diet, because the current toxic load is too high to handle more. The best solution to this problem is a medically supervised cleanse which removes the toxic load on the liver and kidney, so these organs are capable of neutralizing the stored toxic fat and burning it for energy.
Acupuncture, combined with a revolutionary new cleansing product achieves these results in an easy, short program. The initial cleanse replaces 14 meals with high quality nutrients in a bioavailable form that removes the toxic load from the body while assisting the liver and kidneys cleanse the body. The products include critical amino acids, essential vitamins and minerals, digestive enzymes and fiber to restore balance and efficiency to the digestive tract. Additional enzymes facilitate oxidation of fatty acids stored (excess body fat) energy. The products are pleasant tasting and do not leave you feeling hungry or irritable.
