"Why don't I focus on weight loss in my practice? Weight is simply a symptom, not the problem. We treat weight in the healthcare industry like it's the cause of diseases and my clients' doctors tell them this all the time. It's NOT the problem, it is a symptom of what your body is doing and how it's behaving. Whether that's a result of an imbalance in a bodily system or with energy intake, weight is the resulting impact of that issue. When we find the root cause of the issue and correct it, the symptom improves."
"Stress can prevent your body from absorbing nutrients, or it uses the nutrients to process the stress hormones out of our bodies. These same nutrients are needed to prevent certain diseases."
