Functional Medicine Solution to Weight Loss

Losing weight and maintaining the weight loss can be a major challenge. For decades, we’ve been led to believe that weight loss is as simple as calories in - calories out, and all we need is more willpower. We’re much more complex than simple math! Weight loss, especially permanent weight loss, has to take into account the multiple factors that lead to weight gain, including hormones, nutrients, food quality, stress, toxicity, sleep, self-care, mindset, preferences and habits. The list may seem long, but the solution is pretty simple. Functional Medicine, a methodology developed by physicians that focuses on the interconnectedness of the systems in the body to address the root causes of health challenges, provides effective solutions for increasing metabolism and losing weight naturally and permanently — and getting healthier in the process. Afterthe workshop, you’ll receive a recipe eBook, audio and video that will ensure success in your weight loss efforts.
