Little Known Secrets to Losing Weight – Part 2

In Part 1, I shared the the importance of properly detoxifying the body so that the fat no longer has to be there to store it. In this post, I’m going to talk about the other MAJOR cause of unhealthy weight gain.

What is it?

Stress.

So let’s begin by explaining what stress is exactly and what it isn’t. Stress is NOT the actual events of your daily life. It isn’t caused by your boss yelling at you or your husband having an affair or your kids driving you bananas.

Stress is not the situation, rather, it is your RESPONSE to the situation. The stress response was never meant to be a daily occurrence. It was meant for “once in a while” emergency situations…you know, when a saber-tooth tiger is about to pounce on you.

Unfortunately, the modern world is full of “stressors” and some are unintentional. Take our electronics for example. The EMF (electromagnetic fields) from our cell phones, cordless phones, computers, microwave ovens etc. cause the body to go into a stress response. You’re so used to it, you can’t even tell the difference.

Why does stress cause weight gain? Because it increases cortisol hormone levels in the body…and cortisol has a high affinity for abdominal fat cells! Look around. People with thick waists (apple body types) are at much higher risk of stress disorders such as heart attacks, strokes, etc. than people with thin waists (pear body types).

So in order to lose the fat, you have to lose the stress. But since you can’t control the stressors in your every life, you are relegated to controlling your own stress-response.

Easy? No, not until recently.

The traditional ways of managing the stress response are all still valuable and they include:

  • prayer
  • meditation
  • exercise
  • yoga
  • listening to music
  • brainwave music
  • breathing exercises
  • biofeedback
  • hypnosis
  • acupuncture
  • Reiki and other energy healing methods
  • healthy communication

But what I’ve found is that, practically speaking, it takes a long time for people to train and use some of these traditional techniques to manage the deluge of stress hormones that they are producing almost every waking moment. After a one-hour class of yoga, people can immediately turn fierce if someone cuts them off on the highway.

So what’s the solution? Well, I’ll tell you what I’ve discovered. LifeWave’s Aeon patch moderates the stress response all day long – for at least 12 hours. It isn’t a drug, it isn’t alcohol and it isn’t a hormone. Wearing the Aeon patch on a regular basis literally tones down the stress response and balances the autonomic nervous system (flight of fight vs. relaxation responses).  See chart below. And the cool thing is that it is quick acting and it is easy.

My favorite formula is to patch the head with LifeWave Aeon Patches. During the day, it is most convenient to patch behind the right ear or using a headband or hat to patch some of my other favorite points. At night, I like sleeping with it on my third eye. I wake up more energetic and refreshed and my sleep is deep and restful.

I had a patient recently who couldn’t sleep. I asked him to patch his head daily. I did one treatment of acupuncture with the Aeon patch on his head to quicken the response. Pretty much right away, he was able to sleep again. Four weeks later, he had lost 10 pounds and had gained a positive advantage in his favorite sport! All from releasing the stress response.

So in summary, in order to release the fat from your body, you need to do two things that most doctors don’t tell you about:

1. Detoxification

2. Get rid of the inappropriate stress response.

The Glutathione patches, Carnosine patches and the Aeon patches from LifeWave are a very powerful trio that can greatly enhance your weight loss goals, especially if you’re already “trying your best” to lose weight.

Lastly, if you’re actually having cravings or symptoms of yo-yo’ing blood sugars, like I used to, the LifeWave appetite control patches, the SP6 Complete, may be helpful as well.
