Understanding Fat Metabolism
In this issue, I want to talk about two important keys I have learned to promote weight loss. One was learning to show love for our bodies instead of being so negative and critical
Fats are very important to our health. They are a major structural component of the body, and particularly the nervous system. Over 50% of the brain is fat. So, when someone calls you a "fat head"ï¿½ you should thank them for the compliment.
Kim Balas's work in biochemical blood analysis really opened my understanding as to how the body metabolizes and uses fats, which has given me additional clues as to why we gain weight
and have trouble losing it. There are five major organs/glands which regulate the metabolism of fat in the body. If any of these organs are not functioning properly, then our fat metabolism
will be impaired and we will have difficulty burning off excess fat. These organs are the gallbladder, liver, thyroid, spleen, and uterus in women and prostate in men.
Dr. Brownstein believes that most people are iodine deficient. Iodine is not just needed by the thyroid, it is also used in uterine and prostate tissue, the breasts, the skin and many other organs
and systems in the body. In fact, iodine deficiency is a factor in fibrocystic breast disease and breast and prostate cancer.
Our lack of iodine is partly due to dietary insufficiency, but is exacerbated by the fact that chlorine, fluoride and bromine all displace iodine in the tissues. Since most people drink chlorinated
water and are exposed to fluorides and bromides on a regular basis, we need more iodine to offset this exposure.
The Uterus and Prostate
Women who have problems with water retention, a lack of energy and fat accumulation around the hips, buttocks and thighs typically have a problem with their uterus. A chiropractor friend of mine also indicated that he had noted that after having their uterus removed, he observed that women often had trouble losing weight and also developed heart and nervous system problems.
This is due to the fact that fats are no longer being processed as efficiently because of the loss of uterine tissue.
So, getting this reproductive tissue into good health may also be necessary to weight reduction.
Stress is a big factor in excess weight. High levels of insulin and high levels of cortisol (a stress hormone released from the adrenals) are associated with a loss of muscle mass and the development of abdominal fat. So, stress management is an important factor in weight reduction.
