Learn How to Turn Your Body Into A Fat Burning Machine in Kingston WA
Do you ever wonder why some people can eat more than their share many times a week and never gain a pound. Why is it when others eat even small meals everything seems to be stored as fat.
The key to both of these questions is what is holding their metabolism back?
The key organs that control metabolism are the liver, thyroid, adrenal and the small intestine. If even one organ is not functioning properly your body will be turn into a fat storing machine. Since we are exposed to thousands of toxins every day, we are more susceptible to decreased organ function because toxins are stored throughout the body. Therefore when assessing ones metabolism, you must look at their diet, adrenal function, thyroid panels and their Symptomology to rule out leaky gut.
What is leaky gut?
Leaky gut is a condition also known as gut impermeability. This is a situation where there is chronic inflammation in the small intestine, and food leaks out of the lumen which creates an auto-immune response against the body. Patients with leaky gut can present with IBS, constipation, diarrhea, skin irritation, foggy thoughts, joint pain, fatigue and many other symptoms.
Another common cause of slow metabolism is adrenal fatigue. Your adrenal glands are the small glands that sit on top of your kidneys and secrete stress hormones that help control metabolism and other bodily functions. When we are exposed to stress, the body releases stress hormones like cortisol throughout the body. Cortisol thinks your body is in some sort of survival mode and tells your body to store everything you eat because of the survival situation. Therefore if stress hormones are not balanced you will always be in a weight gaining, storage metabolism state.
