Lose Weight Now With Hormonal Balancing.
If you want to lose weight with hormonal balancing it’s relatively easy to do. Maybe you’ve been trying to lose weight but just can’t figure out why the weight isn’t flying off. You’re eating right, hitting the gym and laying off the carbs. One filter with which we treat portion control is via the hormonal system, using body type to assist in diagnosis and treatment . There are four such types and they are Adrenal, Thyroid, Liver and Ovarian/Teste. Once we identify the prevalent one we treat accordingly using supplements, herbs, acupuncture and, when appropriate, hypnosis.
These, briefly are the types, and some things you can do for yourself to ‘right the ship’. Of course you can always do hypnosis with us, live or online using telemedicine. Finally, if you’re pursuing sleep, there is always my book: Rewired for Sleep: the 28 Day Insomnia Repair Program. But let’s talk about body types for now.

We typically do hormone testing to see which supplements are the correct ones for you. Of course, this is purely dependent on what the testing shows. From a different perspective altogether, we may prescribe Chinese medicinals, and/or perform acupuncture that is geared to promoting weight reduction.
