Body Composition and Weight Loss! Why It’s So Important!

Thursday, April 27th, 2017
We’ve specialised in weight loss processes at New Leaf for over 10 years – using several types of weight loss processes including the HCG Rapid Weight Loss programme, Shake It, Keto, Paleo… and I TRULY BELIEVE that weight loss without regular (weekly is optimal!) VLA BioImpedance Screenings is dangerous!
A few years ago I had two people in a short space of time that had both lost muscle mass and muscle quality on HCG.  This confused me until I realised that they had both decided to continue the HCG diet BEYOND the allowed 42 days maximum.  Both had done an extra 2 weeks instead of going back onto consolidation as the protocol requires.  It was really interesting to see because it highlighted that the HCG rules are really important.  Many of my clients say they could do HCG or Steak Days or Apple Days forever!
I had another client who (with another naturopath) had done 6 weeks of juice fasting and her inflammation was through the roof, her muscle mass and muscle quality was a joke.  It was scary the damage that had been done to her body.  She said ‘but I feel great’!  I said, ‘well, that’s because your body is running on sugar all day every day!’.  We had a lot of work to do to repair her body.  If juice fasting is to be done to prevent or help health problems (such as cancer) increasing inflammation during the process is not the way to go….
Another client (this was who I call my mars bar lady!) on the Shake It weight loss programme, who was continually losing about 1/2 kilo per week and had done incredibly well, turned up for her apt and said ‘I’ve been a bit naughty, I don’t expect to lose weight this week’.  We did her VLA and found:
  • weight about the same as previously
  • 2 kilos LOSS of muscle mass
  • 30% decrease in muscle quality
  • 2 kilos of combination extra fat and fluid.
  • she’d eaten 3 mars bars (on special at a service station – don’t do it!!) at a servo 2 days earlier.
  • it took 3 weeks to regain her muscle mass and muscle quality and bring her fat mass down to ‘before’ the mars bar day!
One of my ladies in yesterday had only lost 200g this week (had missed 4 doses of HCG and hadn’t had optimal diet over weekend)… but overall there had still been good changes:
  • 450g reduced normal fat
  • 500g reduced tummy fat
  • less hydrated in muscles
  • more fluid outside cells
 So  don’t allow your body to fall apart while losing weight.  Talk to us about maintaining or losing weight healthily!!

In other words, there had been a kilo shift for the better, a kilo of inflammatory fluid (which needs releasing – yes!) but she wouldn’t have known without weekly VLA BioImpedance Screenings….

Heart Disease protected by physical activity. What a surprise haha!

Alcohol Heart Disease and Exercise chart

So I know that during consolidation the occasional glass of exercise is fine (weight wise).  But check out this study that shows the higher levels we do of exercise, the more protected we are from heart disease.  It makes sense since people who exercise at higher intensity and more often, usually drink more water, have better blood supply around the body, often take supplements (that support heart function and energy) like magnesium, coenzyme Q10 and anti-oxidants, and generally live a ‘healthier’ lifestyle.  Also, the quality of our muscle mass improves with exercise – and your heart is a big muscle!!!
Ask about our VLA BioImpedance Screening; Insulin Resistance Test and OligoScan testing to find out the quality of your muscles and how your heart/cardiovascular system is tracking…

HCG Rapid Weight Loss: Safe, Easy, Effective, PROVEN!!!

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

HCG:  the safest, fastest, easiest way that we’ve ever found to lose weight IF it’s done properly.  Without detoxification, balancing hormones, HCG can make people a toxic and emotional mess.  At New Leaf, we use a combination with natural therapies which:

*  detoxification supplements which detox fat and blood and toxins are being released (hugely important to stop rebound weight issues)

*  do VLA Bio-impedance Screenings so that you KNOW what is going on in your body – fat mass, muscle mass, inflammation, toxicity, metabolism.  One of the worst things about weight loss is hitting those ‘stalls’.  With VLA Bio-impedance Screenings, we can see if it’s because you’re gaining muscle mass, getting more hydrated, releasing toxins and storing fluid to dilute them…  All of which gives you the information you need in order to stay focussed, positive and switched on.  Most naturopaths do not have our experience in dissecting this information for you – and don’t know what to do specifically on HCG.  We’re HCG specialists at New Leaf!

*  balance blood sugar:  some people need extra support.  If blood sugar isn’t balanced we can feel hungry (or starving), have highs and lows of energy, poor sleep/insomnia, and feel stressed.

*  break down scar tissue in the abdomen:  With Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage we can ensure your organs through the abdomen (liver, gall bladder, kidneys, adrenals, reproductive organs, bowels, bladder, spleen, pancreas, lungs) are functioning properly.  Amazing treatment protocol that improved function of all of these major organs in your body.

*  kinesiology for self sabotage (ever experienced that with weight issues??!!).  Put on weight, sabotage your whole day?  Can’t stop eating once you start?  Let’s start working on those self-beliefs that don’t serve you for your goals:  “I’m not worth it”  “I can’t do it”  “I can’t do it without support”  “It’s too hard making two meals at night time”.  If you think about sabotage, they’re generally just thoughts that don’t serve us and don’t help us to move forwards in life.

Adrenal Fatigue/Chronic Fatigue – Natural Support at New Leaf

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Adrenal Fatigue is such a huge problem in society these days, each person’s history is totally different, and the ability to prescribe a one-off bottle of Adrenotone and fixing it is just about over.

Signs that you may have adrenal fatigue!

1. increased caffeine intake
2. increased snacking to control blood sugar fluctuations
3. increased fatigue
4. increased irritability
5. increased sleep problems If you feel “wired but tired” you likely need some adrenal support.
6. development of any long-term disease
7. ADD, ADHD, inability to think clearly
Some of our favourite supplements and protocols for Adrenal Fatigue are:
1.  Kinesiology for Immune & Endocrine balancing, stress, dealing with traumas
2.  Frequency Specific Microcurrent:  helps to remove toxins caused by inflammation
3.  Remedial Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Relaxing Massage & Infrared Saunas:  increases serotonin levels, reduces inflammatory hormones and helps us to heal
4.  Supplements:
*  Adrenotone – combination of nutrients which help thyroid and adrenal fatigue
*  Ultra Flora Immune, Andro NK, Bactrex, Parex, Costat, Waiora NCD – for those who have a history with infections preceding fatigue
*  Gaba, Proxan, Resilian, Stressan, Relaxan, Estrofactors, Oestroclear – for those with a history of stress/depression/anxiety/hormonal imbalances
*  Resist X, Chromium Plus, MetaPure EPA/DHA, Mitochondrial Complex – balances blood sugar and increases Mitochondrial Function…
*  Lipoic Acid, Glutathione, NCD, Oxidant Protection, non-acidic Vitamin C
We also see signs of exhaustion in a number of our clinical tests including Live Blood Screenings and Bio-impedance Analysis Screenings.
