Heart functions and the threat of obesity

Heart functions

Heart functions and the threat of obesity demands that we must make all efforts of kicking obesity out of our lives

Heart functions and the threat of obesity: Overweight and Obesity

The heart is such a special organ in the body which needs lots of care. Anything affecting the heart leaves a scar and scare not just to the individual victim, but to the whole family. When this happens, the heart functions are hindered and the family programs equally come to a halt at times. Our focus in this article is going to be on poor weight management as a tool that can affect the heart functions badly. We are going to be seeking the professional input of doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President, and founder of AWAREmed health and wellness resource center over this so that we are precise and professional. We are all alive because we bear some weight. Weight is a component in life that we cannot ignore but like in any other good thing under the earth, when its application is done in excess it becomes dangerous. In the same way as human beings we must have the certain degree of weight from all the good reason however when weight is in excess, it becomes a problem to the human body and hence the saying “too much of something is dangerous”.

Like we have said the heart is such an important organ in the body and its functions must be perfect, regular and consistent all the times. Let’s, therefore, acquaint ourselves with the definitions of certain terms for a better understanding of our point of discussion. The terms “overweight” and “obesity” refer to body weight that’s beyond what is considered healthy for a given height. It is believed that in America alone, more than two-thirds of the adult population are overweight with about one-third of these adults being obese. Overweight and obesity are measured by the use of body mass index (BMI). For an adult, the normal weight is a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 anything 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight while a BMI of 30 and more is obese.

Heart functions and the threat of obesity: Health risk involved

Being overweight or obese can raise your risk of CHD and heart attack. This is mainly because when it comes to the relationship between obesity and heart failure it’s always very complicated. Obesity is intimately interwoven with multiple health conditions that underlie cardiovascular disease including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes and
  • Abnormal blood cholesterol

Away from all this, being overweight is a common consequence of heart-damaging lifestyles like lack of exercise and a fat-laden diet. For some time now, scientists have suspected that excess fat tissue, especially around the waist, has a direct effect on heart structure and function, even without the association of other heart disease risks. In pursuing this philosophy, researchers evaluated some 950 older individuals of different weights for signs of left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction a condition characterized by changes in the structure of the heart’s main pumping chamber (left ventricle), which prevent it from filling sufficiently between beats. Although LV diastolic dysfunction can be symptomless, it reliably predicts future heart failure. (Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle weakens or stiffens to the extent that it can no longer meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen.)

In this study, the subjects were separated into three weight groups that are normal, overweight, and obese based on their body-mass index (BMI). Each subject underwent a noninvasive echocardiogram exam to measure the dimensions of the heart, muscle thickness and filling capacity of the left ventricle. It was then established that the overweight and obese participants were more prone to abnormal diastolic function than the normal weight individuals. Nonetheless when the researchers controlled for the effects of the other risks, the overweight, and obese subject still had up to a 60% higher chance of having LV diastolic dysfunction. It also made a difference how much extra body fat the person carried. The risk of abnormal heart function went up 4% for each point increase in BMI measurement. Looking at the dangers attached, timely professional help is highly recommended and scheduling an appointment with doctor Akoury should be your starting point.

Obesity realities and food addiction riddle

Obesity realities

Obesity realities and food addiction riddle. Eliminating toxic elements marks the beginning of leaner weight

Obesity realities and food addiction riddle: When food becomes a problem as oppose to source of energy

How true is it that people can be addicted to food? If the body needs food for the supply of energy then does it really make sense to insinuate that food can be very addictive? And does that explain the impact of obesity realities? This is what we want to interrogate in this case study of understanding connections between obesity and food addiction. As things stand now, millions around the world are struggling with addiction related problems, surprisingly food addiction is among one of the most common forms of addiction that doctor Dalal Akoury (MD) and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center is going to help us rediscover as we progress into the discussion.

It will interest you to note that several studies have established that nearly 80% of gastric bypass pre-surgical patients suffer from food addiction. These studies, along with those of other investigators, also found that the behavioral biochemical causes and effects of underlying food addiction are nearly identical to those of other self-destructive addictions.

Obesity realities and food addiction riddle: Turning to food to cope with feelings of low self-worth

One of the behavioral characteristic of people who are suffering from self-destructive addictions is the feeling of not being good enough. The feelings of low self-worth in turn may cause a poor self-image, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, a need to over achieve and an intense and chronic fear of failure. These are not experiences that are not conducive for life and must not be given space to grow. Measures must be taken to prevent them nonetheless if they are already with us, then immediate treatment solution must be taken professionally. That is to say if you are struggling with any kind of addiction, you must never deny yourself for being in such situation instead you need to seek for help by calling doctor Dalal Akoury to schedule for an appointment so that your problem can be dealt with professionally in good time.

It is regrettable that some of the problems we have with addiction are society based. As a society, we have set certain unattainable standards which are very unreasonable and unrealistic. So whenever one is not able to meet such they feel belittled and this is seen as of great impact to the addicts who are not only suffering from the negative feelings about themselves but are also struggling with the element of stress and failure to develop the stress coping skills or strategies.  The dangers comes in the sense that instead of confronting life stressors directly or finding healthier ways to manage emotions such as through exercise, journaling, relaxation, spiritual care, therapy etc., the “addict” often seeks to avoid unpleasant feelings by eating, drinking alcohol, smoking, using drugs, gambling and various other ways of escaping from reality.

Finally from the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, negative feelings toward self, remorse, guilt and inappropriate stress coping behavior is likely to cause neurochemical changes within the brain which can adversely influence mood and cause a physical dependency for the addictive substance. These neurochemical defects occur in the limbic system of the brain, the area of the brain responsible for controlling moods and basic functions such as eating.

Eliminating toxic elements and obesity during holidays: The power of detoxification

At the mention of the word obesity and weight gain, heads roll and eyes frown. This is happening because weight gain is becoming common in most of our societies and the kind of life style we live is not helping either. We have adopted the culture of too much comfort to the point that everything we do is machine oriented. Today the technological advancement has been embraced in all sectors of life to the point that our body is completely deprived of all effective physical activities. Can you imagine that the degree of comfort is so extreme that people are even using improvised machines to brush their teeth? We use washing machines for domestic scores like washing clothes, dishes, cleaning the floors and the like. The manual way of doing things is currently seen as tiresome and time wasting. While it is true that these components make work easier for us, they are also the cause of our problems with weight and obesity.

In the meantime it is important to note that for one to lose weight meaningfully the two types of hormones (leptin and insulin) are very essential in eliminating toxic elements and must be produced adequately and not just the production, they must be effective in delivering to their stipulated mandate. Even as we look forward to the proper functionalities of these hormone it is important to appreciate that some of their functions may be hindered either by over consumption of sugar and processed grains and toxic elements.

It is because of this reason that Dr. Akoury made a decision to create a medical center (AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center) whose main objective 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 great doctor practices, is primarily focuses on personalized medicine through healthy lifestyle choices that deal with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of patching up symptoms.

Childhood obesity treatment solution: How much weight to loose

Losing weight is a process and never a destination. Therefore when losing weight, it must never be done in hast. The process should be systematic for some reasonable time. Doctor Akoury says that even though some parents when their children are diagnosed with certain diseases that are related to being overweight, they would want a quick solution thinking that this will be offering lasting solutions. This is not always the case but quite in the contrary a rapid weight loss or stringent dieting is not recommended for children who are still growing, unless this has been specifically advised by a specialist. In most in children, the primary objective should be to keep the weight at the same level as opposed to weight loss. Progressively in their growth and development children should not gain any weight or their weight gain should be slower than their height gain. Occasionally, when teenagers have slowed down on their growth, a weight loss of around 0.5 kg per week may be appropriate. This sharp contrast in weight loss in adult in relation to children necessitates that parents should work very closely with their pediatrician or child’s healthcare professional to advise appropriately on what is best for them based on an assessment.
