Obesity and related issues (Leptin Resistance)

We live in a society that is both obsessed with thinness and is getting increasingly larger. The hormone leptin (after leptos, the Greek word for thin) was only discovered in 1994, but is vitally important as it is responsible for satiety (how quickly you feel satisfied or full) and it has been linked to the idea of an ‘obesity gene’.

Stabilizing leptin can be achieved through lifestyle and dietary changes, and understanding how to do this will become more and more important as the population gets bigger.

The thyroid works in a four gland endocrine loop, which includes the pituitary, the hypothalamus, and adrenals. This is what we call your metabolism or on a nutritional level, your ability to transform the food you eat into useful energy.

“I have had a brilliant Christmas and (usually for me) SAD season, whatever you did, I felt upbeat, fought off flu’s, and have had the best Christmas ever, with positive vibes and all good things, and I think I have to thank you, for what you did. Will see you late January for a booster!”

I really liked how we started with the work on nutrition and my relationship with food.  This physical work acted as a safety net for the energetic emotional shifts that the breath and body work brought on. They were quite full on!

“The best way I can describe what Stefan does is to say that there are times when I have gone to see him feeling like I'm "broken" due to stress, over work, the death of my brother and other life experiences that have been hard to deal with. And in a simple sentence I leave feeling "fixed". Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative“
