Why do people gain weight?

There are a number of conditions and issues that make it difficult for people to maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Billauer practices a holistic approach to health and wellbeing and understands that for many patients, losing weight is more than just consuming fewer calories than they use. The body functions best when it is in perfect balance, but unfortunately a wide variety of factors that contribute to that balance. Some of the common issues that cause an imbalance in the body that contribute to weight gain or a difficulty in losing weight include:

  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Acidity of the body
  • Hormone levels
  • High toxicity
  • Stress
  • Following diet changes that aren’t customized
  • Decreased activity levels due to pain or obesity

Why is it important to maintain a healthy weight?

In order for your body to function at optimal levels, everything must be balanced including your weight. Excess weight can lead to issues with hormone production, which results in a wide variety of unpleasant symptoms. It is also known to contribute to the development of health conditions like cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes. Physically, carrying extra weight puts extra strain on your joints and bones, which can in turn, lead to misalignment and subluxations and pain.
