1. We all know that as we get older we tend to gain more fat. Why is that?
Both men and women tend to trade muscle for fat. Especially women when they hit menopause, the loss of estrogen causes more fat to deposit, even if the weight doesn’t change.
2. How do the extra inches of fat hurt our health?
Among the over 20 substances to include hormones and enzymes produced by our fat cells is a substance called Tumor Necrosis Factor and Adiponectin. The TNF overproduction causes chronic inflammation which trigger damage to your blood vessels and causes heart disease, hypertension and stroke. The Adiponectin production is blocked by increased fat cell size, so we get insulin resistance.
3. When we talk about measuring up, we’re talking about how you can test yourself a home right?
Yes, by measuring at home you can determine if you are at higher risk for diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia. Just by using a tape measure.
4. Where do you measure yourself?
You measure your waist at the narrowest spot and your hips at the widest spot. Then divide the hip measurement into the waist measurement and if it is over 0.8, then you are at increased risk for Diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer.
5. If a person finds they are at risk, what should they do?
A. Of course we all know, get on a proper diet
B. Increase your exercise
C. And if that isn’t working for you, come in and get tested at our clinic, find out what your metabolic challenges are and then if you are a candidate, our FDA Zerona Laser can make your fat disappear with no surgery, no pain and no recovery time. You just sit and listen to music while the Zerona Laser causes your fat cells to think you are on a diet and they release their fat content, then the fat is removed by your lymphatic system. The laser works 100% of the time.
