There is no doubt when your body is in balance you experience a powerful sense of health and vitality.
So when you ask yourself, why don't I feel well? Why do I struggle to lose weight? Could it be an underlying health issue? The answer could very well be YES!
This is the health screening checklist I used in private practice. I helped numerous individuals discover the reasons WHY they struggled to lose weight.
I recommend that you discuss these tests with your health practitioner prior to commencing your natural weight loss journey. The Health Screening Checklist will help you take the first vital steps to assessing your overall health.
This Health Screening Checklist gives you suggestions regarding pathology tests, blood pressure and how to calculate your own body fat risk and Body Mass Index (BMI).
Remember, natural weight loss looks at the reasons WHY you are overweight. Only when your body is truly healthy is it possible to lose weight and keep it off.
Assessing your hormone levels may be an important first step in discovering if you have a hormone imbalance that is pushing you towards weight gain.
Active hormones in your body play a vital role in sending messages and signals to various organs and tissues in the body. Hormones regulate many different areas of the body and most of their actions are integrated.
The coordinated actions of hormones are required to maintain optimal overall wellness. A hormone imbalance can lead to weight gain, menopause symptoms, PMS, low energy levels, a decrease in libido, uterine fibroids and other male or female health problems.
There are two tests that you can perform:
A considerable amount of studies show that keeping blood pressure below 120/80 will reduce your cardiovascular disease risk. An ideal blood pressure goal for most people is 115/75. Ask your health professional to take a measurement of your current blood pressure.
Hypertension is usually clinically defined when systolic blood pressure is greater than 140 mmHg and diastolic pressure readings are greater than 90 mmHg.
Your Body Mass Index (BMI) measures if you are overweight with reference to your weight and height. It is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in meters squared. A healthy BMI is between 20-25.
A higher BMI is associated with obesity. Example: A 95kg person who is 1.7m in height has a BMI of 32.
