  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Cerebrovascular disease
  • Cancer

Chronic health nature and obesity: Diabetes mellitus

This one such health conditions that is strongly associated with overweight and being obese. The most frustrating point with this condition is that is very difficult to treat and once affected, it can only be managed. Obesity is linked to type 2 diabetes mellitus and this cut across both genders and irrespective of where you’re coming from. And in fact the relationship between obesity and diabetes is such intertwined that the connection has been nick named ‘diabesity’. The flow from obesity to diabetes is due to a progressive defect in insulin emission together with a steady rise in insulin resistance.

The fact that insulin resistance and improper emission of insulin are happening very prematurely in obese individuals is worsening towards diabetes. An increase in overall fatness, preferentially of visceral as well as ectopic fat depots, is specifically associated with insulin resistance. The accumulation of intramyocellular lipids may be due to reduced lipid oxidation capacity. Therefore the ability to lose weight is related to the capacity to oxidize fat. Thus, a relative defect in fat oxidation capacity is responsible for energy economy and hampered weight loss.

Body cleansing naturally: The idea behind natural detox

The idea for detox diets comes from the concern that toxins are constantly attacking our bodies and all for the wrong reasons. These (toxins) are chemicals with potentially harmful effects. While some toxins are more obvious, such as pesticides or smog, some people consider even seemingly normal substances to be toxins. They may come from many sources including the following:

  • Alcohol
  • Impure water
  • Substances such as artificial sweeteners added to food
  • Smog or other substances in the air
  • Medications
  • Pesticides or other chemicals used to grow or prepare food
  • Sugar
  • Caffeine

Preventing bullying and overweight

Preventing bullying

Preventing bullying and overweight scourge demands that we work together

Preventing bullying and overweight scourge: The alarming statistics

The statistics on bullying are upsetting. We can solve this problem by preventing bullying and weight gain problems simply by encouraging healthy living. Doctor Dalal Akoury a veteran weight loss expert shares with us some of the research findings based on a recent national survey of overweight in sixth grade, 24 percent of the boys and 30 percent of the girls experienced daily teasing, bullying or rejection because of their size. The number doubles for overweight high school students with 58 percent of boys and 63 percent of girls experiencing daily teasing, bullying or rejection because of their size. This is a clear manifestation of the pain our children go through because of what we could easily solve if we did the right thing from their initial stages of life. Therefore what is bullying? The word bullying can take different forms of definitions including:

  • Bullying involves intentional and largely unprovoked, efforts to harm another
  • Bullying can be physical or verbal, and direct or indirect in nature
  • Bullying involves repeated negative actions by one or more against another
  • Bullying involves an imbalance of physical or psychological power

Nonetheless, we must also talk about this issue in plain language to keep it real and to understand the impact of bullying. Overweight children and teens who are bullied are often called names, teased, punched, ganged up on, humiliated and ignored relentlessly either in-person or in social media by their peers. Victims often feel depressed, ostracized, sad, powerless, lonely, alienated, angry, anxious and fearful. It is important that we address bullying in our schools, neighborhoods, and communities because every child has the basic human right to feel safe and secure.

Preventing bullying and overweight scourge: Who are the bullies and who are the victims?

Overweight and obese school-aged children are more likely to be the victims and perpetrators of bullying behaviors than their normal-weight peers. Naturally, both male and female children and teens report bully making fun of the way they look, dress or talk. However, males are more likely to report being physically harmed through punching or kicking, whereas girls are more likely to be excluded, ostracized and the target of rumors, especially pertaining to sexual activity. The risk factors associated with bullying victims – feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, depression, social isolation and marginalization, lack of social skills and the inability to defend themselves in confrontational situations – are similar to the psycho-social conditions of overweight children and teens; depression, anxiety, social isolation and marginalization and low self-esteem.

Finally, bullying often comes in two categories; direct and indirect. Direct bullying involves confrontations, name calling, derogatory comments, hitting, kicking, shoving and chasing. Indirect bullying is equally aggressive, but partially hidden from the victim and can include social isolation, the spreading of lies and rumors to peers and ignoring victims in group activities. Cyberbullying may also fall into this category because the harassment and bullying is a step removed from a face-to-face contact using text messaging or social media networks such as Facebook and YouTube.

No matter the category this problem must be addressed professionally. The objective of AWAREmed health center is to transform each individual’s life through increasing awareness about health and wellness and by empowering individuals to find their own inner healing power. This is what you need and it is only a phone call away. Reach out for doctor Akoury and all this will be addressed professionally.

Studies have established that being overweight motivates bullying and recently bullying has been sighted as one of the major consequences our overweight children face psychologically. With the help of experts from AWAREmed health and wellness resource center, we want to seek for answers to some pertinent questions that are associated with being overweight and bullying. Under the leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD President and founder of this establishment, we have made it a priority that we will do all we can to fight tooth and nail the scourge of obesity.

Bullying being one of the most psychological problems is a highly individualized experience just as physical pain. Some children or teen may endure bullying better than others. It is important that the type of bullying, the level, intensity and frequency of contact with the bully or bullies be deliberated on when assessing and evaluating the emotional and physical consequences of being a victim. The result of such is that overweight children who are victims of bullying will avoid attending to activities at the playground or schools which will translate into their being inactive and poor performance academically. Besides this bullying can be very extreme in some case and lead to much more catastrophic results like suicide. This is very painful and so we must be careful when discussing the consequences of bullying in general terms since the threshold for different types of bullying will fluctuate from child to child.

Overweight motivates bullying: Helping a child who is being bullied

For you to address bullying problem related to overweight or obese children, you must be knowledgeable of the problem. Your children will require consistency, humility, compassion and above all listening to the child’s experience without judging them. It won’t be easy, you must be ready to withstand the obstacles which may come your way like you may be tempted to portion blame on the child or even suggest that, “You need to learn to defend yourself.” Being overprotective may also be an option for you like “I must discuss this with his/her parents straight away.” These are obstacles and should be avoided because they will make you harden your position which may only result in making enemies.

Therefore, your best plan of action should be to show your child how to use all the resources available to create a safer and more secure environment for them like.

  • Surround your child with family and neighbors who know your child is being bullied and ask that they support you in protecting your child is not just important for your child but also to theirs as well.
  • Cultivating a “zero tolerance” for bullying environment in your child’s community ensures all children have access to a safe, nurturing, learning environment.
  • You and your child can work together to ensure all kids are safe and empowered to speak up against bullies.
  • Remember, you may be the only person your child can trust and come to for help.
