Metabolism is Key to Losing Weight

Author: Dr. Quinte Naturopathic Centre on 21 January 2010

So you need or want to lose weight, and you’ve tried various methods for years. You’re tired of trying hard with diets and exercise and not seeing significant results.

The next step, then, is to examine your metabolism. Those who have difficulty losing weight often have a slow metabolism or one that is not functioning as it should. In the interest of optimizing your metabolic rate so you can reach your best weight and achieve well-being, we at the Quinte Naturopathic Centre are working in conjunction with the Healthy & Active Metabolism Program.

Here’s how it works: the program is a nutritional plan specifically designed to regulate your hormones, activate your immune system, and optimize your metabolism. Extensive metabolic analysis is done through thorough blood work and diet and health examination. From there, a customized meal, supplement, and lifestyle plan will be drawn up for you to follow, and you will learn about several key factors that affect your well-being:

  • metabolism
  • hormonal balance
  • mineral balance
  • acid-base balance
  • fat metabolism
  • carbohydrate metabolism
  • level of connective tissue toxicity
  • and much more

For more information, please check out our programs page or contact us. We’d love to get you started on your path to a new healthy and happier you!
