Natural Weight Loss
Get to Your Goal For Good!
Weight loss is on almost everyone's to do list, but how many people do you know who are actually taking the weight off and keeping it off? I honestly believe that in the modern world we have so many health barriers to weight loss that it is next to impossible without the right help.
The key to successful weight loss is that you can't fight your body. To see real change you have to work with your natural systems, not against them. This means finding your own personal weight-loss obstacles and conquering them.
Your personal weight loss road-blocks might include:
You will learn how to lose pounds and inches and how to keep it off. Learn your own personal weight gain triggers and what types of food your body likes and doesn't like. You will understand why you hold on to weight and how you can get that weight to come off with simple changes. Not anybody else's body, but YOUR body.
I have helped clients lose hundreds of pounds, change their relationship with sugar, gradually balance their hormones, detect and learn to manage emotional eating, find and eliminate their own food sensitivities and get rid of symptoms they've been having along the way. All using simple diet and lifestyle changes! This is a whole body health program, not just a weight loss program. This isn't a short cut, it's the right way to lose weight.
How the program works:
By looking at your personal weight loss blocks, we can paint a picture of why your body is holding on to weight, and take simple steps to remove those blocks. Then, with small baby-step changes we can change your lifestyle in a gradual, permanent way.With weight loss it's important to remember that diets don't work, but changing the way you approach food does. Once we get your blocks out of the way, making simple changes to your diet and lifestyle will add up to big results.
This method makes losing weight easy because you're not fighting against your body anymore. You're working with your body to balance out the blocks so that the work you put into eating right actually pays off.

Frequently Asked Question
Is this the right choice for Me?
Everyone who is trying to lose weight has different goals and lifestyles. This is not a quick-fix program or crash diet. This is a long-term goal and long-term change program that can help you to reach your goals and stay there. It isn't a short cut, it's the real thing. If you just want to lose 5 pounds by next week but don't really care about after that then this probably isn't the best choice for you. This is designed for people who want to truly understand and listen to their bodies and create permanent change.
What does this program not do?
This is not human growth hormone, stimulants, artificial anything or starvation. This is about learning to actually listen to YOUR body and give it what it really needs. It's about eliminating hunger and cravings, boosting your heart health, controlling your blood sugars and normalizing your hormones.
How much does it cost?
You control your costs by controlling how frequently you come to the office. In general I suggest no less than once a month at first until you really understand your body.
Do I have to buy and take lots of supplements?
Typically, no. If you have a particular barrier like toxicity, hormone imbalance, blood sugar issues or insomnia then some supplements may be necessary, but we'll keep those to a minimum.
Does insurance cover this?
Insurance does not cover naturopathic medicine in Texas at this time.
How much weight does the typical person lose?
Every person is different but generally with small steady changes we usually see a half pound to a pound of stubborn weight disappear each week (that can be 50+ pounds a year!), and if you are especially motivated and goal oriented then we can see more. More than two pounds per week is not sustainable or healthy for your body and if that happens we'll slow down. Weight lost more quickly tends to also rebound very quickly and we don't want the rebound.
Does this work for everyone?
This program does work for everyone who is willing to make changes. It won't work if you just come for a chat and don't change anything about your lifestyle, but I'm guessing you knew that already.
