When making effort to lose weight, you may choose to look at your toxic level and try natural means
Many people are struggling with weight and obesity in the today’s society, in order for your body to lose weight, there must be adequate hormones insulin and leptin must be doing their work. Insulin is in place to control sugar and fat storage levels in the body while leptins job is the burning of fat. If these hormones and the mechanisms that are there to utilize them isn’t working, you will be unable to lose weight and extremely prone to packing it on. There are two reasons these hormones begin to fail in your body, the over-consumption of sugar and processed grains and toxicity.
Toxicity is perhaps the greatest problem in the fight to lose weight. When toxins enter your body they have an affinity for fat cells, due to the fact that they are fat soluble. When the toxins attach to the outer cell membrane which is made of a lipid bi-layer (two layers of fat), it causes the cells to continually release Leptin which is the hormone that tells the brain to burn fat for energy, therefore, weight gain that does not respond to exercise or diet is inevitably due to Leptin resistance.
The toxins also cause the release of chemicals called cytokines that damage Leptin receptors in the brain (hypothalamus). Once the receptors to Leptin have been damaged, Weight Loss becomes a problem your body then makes an extremely important hormone called MSH (Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone). MSH is produced in the hypothalamus by Leptin, and it controls nerve, hormone, cytokine functions, skin and mucus membrane defenses, as well as controls the production of endorphins and melatonin. If your brain cannot hear Leptin you will eventually become MSH deficient. The effect of this would be that every immune and hormone response in your body will be altered. This then leads to so many different diseases like depression, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and fibro-myalgia, just to name a few.
In many ways, our polluted world is a true test of genetic survival of the fittest. The number of toxic chemicals now threatens the reproductive ability of the human race and is also a large part of the cancer issue. These chemicals contribute to weight gain in various ways, including disruption of the hormone signaling system that regulates your metabolism, damage to and accumulation in your white adipose tissue, and increased risk for poisoning during weight loss. It is absolutely vital that you understand this subject.
It is very clear that too toxins are released back into the circulation during weight loss. This is especially the case during significant weight loss. During a weight loss of 12 percent of body weight toxins in the blood increased 23 percent – 51 percent, with the heaviest individuals releasing the most toxins. Over a one year period of weight loss toxic exposure ranged up to a whopping 388 percent. Scientists have shown that such toxins can interfere with thyroid hormone function during weight loss. Human data shows that as the toxins go up in the blood during weight loss the levels of biologically active thyroid hormone (T3) go down. This data means that your plumbing and detoxification systems must be in good working condition for healthy weight loss or possibly even to engage weight loss.
Toxins make you feel irritable. Many people report feeling poisoned at a certain point in their weight loss process. Such people will always feel better when they eat a lot of food, as the toxins are pulled out of their blood and placed back in fat along with plenty of fat. With little effort, most people can readily lose weight they have most recently gained. After that, people reach what I will call the “toxic plateau.” This means that detoxification strategies may need to be adjusted if weight loss slows too much or stops.
Once upon a time, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted a program called the National Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS). In 1982 and again in 1987 it analyzed human fat samples from cadavers obtained throughout the country, looking for the types of toxins that accumulate in human fat. Four industrial solvents and one dioxin were found in 100 percent of the fat samples. Nine more chemicals, including three more dioxins and one furan were found in more than 90 percent of the fat samples. In general, 83 percent of the fat samples contained PCBs. U.S. researchers have confirmed the presence of multiple toxins in human fat associated with obesity risk. The EPA has confirmed the presence of these chemicals as pollution in the farm soil across America this can only mean that this problem will be with us for some time to come.
The scientific theory of how these chemicals cause weight gain and difficulty losing weight has now been established. They bind to gene signaling within white adipose tissue and induce new fat cells to form while simultaneously increasing inflammation. Oftentimes, the newly formed fat cells are themselves damaged by the toxins so that they cannot metabolically perform, which includes an inability to make leptin normally. These damaged fat cells can fill up with excess fat and toxins, but are not able to efficiently carry out normal functions of fat cells, leading directly to increased risk for type 2 diabetes via the suppression of the important fat cell hormone known as adiponectin. Several human studies confirm that PCBs increase diabetes risk. These chemicals pose a serious problem to the thyroid gland and the efficient utilization of thyroid hormone throughout your body.
The steps to take to boost antioxidant nutrients that are known to help detoxification processes while protecting the liver, brain, white adipose tissue, and/or circulation. Top choices are silymarin, R-alpha lipoic acid, chlorella, quercetin, grape seed extract and tocotrienols. It is now understood that “toxic” blood triggers the formation of new fat cells. This is because the endothelial cells of your circulatory system directly communicate to your baby fat cells and can tell them what to do. Keeping your blood as clean as possible and supporting your liver are vital steps to ensure that this process goes smoothly.
