Many people have a hard time managing their weight and have difficulty optimizing their metabolism. Metabolism is a complicated chemical process by which your body expends energy and burns calories. Your metabolism works twenty four hours per day even when you're resting or sleeping, by converting the food and nutrients you consume into the energy your body needs in order to breathe, circulate blood, grow and repair cells, and everything else it does to survive. How fast your metabolism works is not only determined by your genes but by other factors such as a balanced endocrine system, a healthy diet, exercise programs such as weight training, sufficient sleep, adequate water intake and less stress. It is known that having long term stress causes an elevation of the hormone cortisol, adrenalin and epinephrine causing metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.
The hormone cortisol produced by the adrenal glands is released when you’re under stress and slows down your metabolism and can lead to weight gain. Additionally, elevated cortisol levels can cause cravings for sweet, fatty and salty foods. This means you’re more likely to indulge in junk food rather than choosing a well-balanced meal. An excess of cortisol also can lead your body to produce less testosterone. This may cause a decrease in muscle mass, as well as slow down how many calories your body burns.
Sleep is an important factor for successful weight loss. Sleep deprivation leads to a resistance in Leptin and Gherelin- two hormones in your gut that act mainly to regulate appetite and fat storage. Leptin Resistance results in feeling hungry all the time and stalls your metabolism. It is vital for improving your metabolism to strive for at least over six hours per night.
With Quantum Biofeedback Therapy you have the ability to channel your energy towards weight loss and optimize your metabolism with multiple ways since the programs are designed integratively to address the orchestra of your body which consists of over 50 trillion cells and is not just one diagnosis.
There are many therapeutic programs that can be done simultaneuosly that can help detect, reduce and manage your stressors at the conscious and unconscious level, improving your metabolism with programs such as
- optimizing your oxygenation for faster fat mobilization
- balancing your hormonal stress such as thyroid, insulin, testosterone, progesterone and estrogen imbalances that play a key role in health, and weight management as well as leptin and insulin, sex hormones and growth hormone which influence our appetite, metabolism (the rate at which our body burns kilojoules for energy), and body fat distribution
- emotional and neurotransmitter balancing
Quantum Biofeedback programs help people overcoming struggles of losing weight due to other underlying conditions whether it is addictions such as alcohol consumption, sugar addictions, inflammation, pain or even chronic fatigue.
Detection of your stressors, reduction of your stressors and managing your stressors with Quantum Biofeedback is provided with at least a 35 page evaluation report and brain wave training with EEG such as alpha wave training for relaxation, theta wave training for meditation and delta for relaxation and sleep. In combination with Quantum Biofeedback we provide a proper nutritional, herbal, natural super food and supplemental profile according to your biochemical individuality to help support your personal needs to optimize your metabolism.
