Slow Thyroid? Could be caused by HORMONE IMBALANCE…

Do you have a Sluggish Thyroid? Restore Youthful Hormone Balance and Thyroid Function. Easy steps and solutions.

After hearing from so many wonderful readers, I have to say that the majority of people seem to struggle with metabolism decrease caused by weak thyroid functions. Facing a thyroid problem puts people at risk for obesity and overall decrease in health. Most importantly, it can create an uphill battle for unsuccessful weight loss. It is important to address this factor when considering treatment options. If you feel that you may have a slow thyroid, even if lab tests show as normal, you could have a thyroid or hormonal balance that is throwing your body out of balance. Until this is corrected, weight loss is hard to achieve. So we must first start with the basics to get our body fine tuned for success following some of these steps.

Most overweight human beings have suffered the agonies of calorie deprivation (dieting), but have failed to achieve any kind of sustained fat reduction. While eating less addresses some of the underlying causes of weight gain, the high failure rate of dieting is partially attributable to the severe alteration in hormone levels that occurs as part of normal aging.

A substantial percentage of aging women (and many aging men) have less-than-optimal thyroid levels, thus predisposing them to weight gain. Thyroid hormone is needed to maintain healthy metabolic rates. Those who are deficient in thyroid hormone should be prescribed thyroid medication to maintain or improve their overall health, as well as to provide this hormone involved in the regulation of body composition. Drugs to consider  are Armour® natural thyroid complex (containing both T4 and T3) or Cytomel® (containing T3).  These are all natural products that will aid in increasing the thyroid function.Trying to lose weight in the face of thyroid hormone deficit can be particularly challenging and sometimes inpossible without little bit of help. It is important that you make sure that you use a source for natural products that is reputable. Many companies can make false claims that T4 or T3 is contained in a product, when in fact it is not.

A common problem women experience before, during, and after menopause is an increase in belly fat mass. Estrogen levels plummet during the “change of life” process with  menopause and some studies correlate this estrogen deficiency with greater abdominal adiposity in women. While excess levels of horse urine-derived estrogen drugs may cause weight gain, evidence suggests that individually dosed natural estrogen replacement facilitates a reduction in abdominal fat in women who are estrogen deficient. Restoring hormone balance in aging females requires the intervention of a health care practitioner with specialized expertise in prescribing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.Men are more fortunate in that almost any doctor can prescribe the proper dose of testosterone (and aromatase-inhibiting drugs, if needed).

It is suggested that every woman or man that suspects a sluggish thyroid problem seek to get a female or male total panel blood test. The test will indicate if you are unbalanced with any hormones. Seeking a professional to advise you on natural alternatives with bioidentical hormones is a safe way to increase function and restore balance and improving quality of life. Using bioidentical hormones may also decrease belly fat.

Raspberry Ketone. HOPE or HYPE in a Bottle. Real Live Results.

Raspberry Ketone- Will this really help our bodies to  “think  it’s  THIN,” therefore, releasing fat cells and freeing our bodies from fat, forever?

If you have been following my blog about Dr. Oz featured products, there is quite a bit of buzz going around on Raspberry Ketones. What is the “BUZZ” all about? In this brief blog, I will share with you some stories about real live people and what they are experiencing using Raspberry Ketone, PLUS, I will share some of the facts about the product that you may or may  not realize. HINT: We all need to be very careful when we subscribe to “hope in a bottle;” so this is your reminder to keep your head on about you and  your emotions in tact before ordering a years supply of Raspberry Ketone. Now, read on with optimism….

Red Rasberry extract, no doubt, has proven to “act like a hormone” and has proven effective in decreasing fat cells in mice. What appeared to happen in case studies was theorized as fat cells acting out like  ”a liquid nitrogen” (example only)  to create a cause and effect which resulted in some fat cells releasing themselves, shriveling up, and evaporating……Sound too good to be true? Usually things that sound too good to be true “usually ARE too good to be true”.  But, don’t get discouraged just yet because there is some good news to come…

Now, don’t be confused. Red Raspberry Ketone, DOES promote promising results based on the study, but the formula has not been confirmed on humans as of yet. Therefore; “YES” you may go ahead and get excited, but “NO” don’t go overboard and purchase stock in raspberry ketone before you set some preliminary trials up for yourself.

As seen on the Dr. Oz show, the ladies that were featured with ”before and after pictures” had significant weight loss ( Lynn and Leslie). They both were quoted as “having had great results on the Raspberry Ketone and would not live without it.” When I investigated this in more detail, the ladies may not want to live without raspberry ketones, but most definately the product was not their only source that they used to achieve their weight loss goals. These women were coached by a personal trainer, prescribed a reduced calorie diet, and were committed to changing their bodies once and for all. They also were taking several suppliments, including raspberry ketone, to optimize results and thermogenics to increase their metabolism.

Let’s not lose hope, though. Let’s just be truthful with ourselves, knowing that nothing is a “MAGIC cure for weight loss.”  yet.  However, the results do prove positively that with a  commitment to a regimite of daily excersise, with a caloric restrictioned diet, and by taking the raspberry ketones, it’s fair to think that we might just come out a winner!!! Was the success due to primarily Raspberry Ketone? Truth is that the success was due to a combination of efforts; diet, excercise,thermogenic aids such as Raspbery Ketone, and consistancy.  So are you IN?

I have been on the front line of blog emails from viewers all over the world after Dr. Oz programed his show.  I am  fortunate to hear back from people from all walks of life that are taking Raspberry Ketone products. There are a important few issues that need to be out in the open for consumer awareness. First and foremost, after the Dr. Oz show you better believe that every single vitamin company in America was searching for raspberry ketone product to sell to the Dr. Oz show viewers.  Manufacturers were scrambling, labs were swamped and retailer shelves were empty. Demand was up and stocks were out.  Therefore, many unfortunate innocent people probably purchased product that was less then optimal, out-dated, or even a placebo. Let’s face it, there are people and companies out there that prey on the big news releases and will take advange of people that are desparate. Some will go to any length to use this to their advantage.  Unfortunately, it is apparent that  many placebos were sold and now consumers don’t know if their bottle was one of those. However, there are many people that were lucky to  received good, quality products and get the chance to give raspberry ketone a try.

Here are a few stories about experiences with raspberry ketones after reviewing the thousands of emails that came in:

In one email, Katie B said that the raspbery ketone had made her heart race and she had to discontinue taking it.  In another email, Catherine R said that the product made her sweat and burp, but she felt energized!  One positive experience was that a woman, Lisa A, had more energy  then she had had in years and she had decreased a pant size in less then 2 weeks.  A recent email stated that Joe M, had lost 6 pound in 6 days!  Another positive experience from a blogger, Angela J, was that she had gained more hope then she had had in years due to a devestating thyroid illness. This was more important to her then the weight loss and hope alone lifted her spirits from a dark depression, thus resulting in peace of mind and a slightly lower scale number.

The emails go on and on, and it really seems like raspberry ketone reports are not decisive and the vote is not really completely in yet. The product  may react differently on body chemistries. The good news is, that raspberry ketone  is truely a bit of “hope in a bottle” because based on just hope alone, many people are experiencing that their depression has been lifted and they feel more optomistic. Overall, there has been a general good feeling, experiences with weight loss reported, and an increase in energy in a majority of users.

How many people bought a placebo or sub-par product? We will never know. However, I recently found out that there are only 7 manufacturers of raw raspberry ketone product, so if you can do a bit of research on the product you are considering purchasing, then this is a good place to start.

For me personally…….I got a rash :O(  BUMMER…I guess this wasn’t too surprising, since I was allergic to berries when I was a child (did I mention I do not have comment sense?).

For the rest of you, I wish you luck that Raspberry Ketone works for you and that you reach your overall wellness goals,  weight loss, and high hopes for a skinnier future!

White Kidney Bean??? Amazing Case Study Shows 6 1/2 lbs loss in 30 days!…

White Kidney Bean for Weight Loss? FACT OR FICTION

Blog- by beckylgould@gmail.com

After listening to Dr Oz, I wanted to find out the true facts about White Kidney Bean to see if it was worth a try for weight management.  Here are some facts and some interesting studies. This particular study is on a product that has other benificial ingredients that work in combination with the White Kidney Bean to optomize weight loss. I am going to try this product for 8 weeks and I will report back to you on my journey. Contact me at beckylgould@gmail.com  for a list of manufacturers or suppliers of reputable products like this. The results posted here are exciting!

The popular, White Kidney Bean (or LuraLean)  powder capitalizes on the proven benefits  of slowing absorption of carbohydrate calories after each meal and targeting digestive enzymes to support healthy after-meal glucose metabolism. LuraLean  has been scientifically proven to slow down the rapid emptying of ingested food into the small intestine, reducing the surge of glucose entering the bloodstream. It has also been shown to significantly lower after-meal glucose surges.LuraLean® binds to bile acids in the small intestine and helps transport them out of the body. These bile acids otherwise facilitate the digestion and assimilation of dietary fat into the bloodstream.

LuraLean® works better than other fibers because its enzymes have been removed, sparing it from degradation in the digestive tract. This enables LuraLean® to form a stable viscous barrier to help impede calorie absorption and maintain its sponge-like activity throughout the digestive tract. In placebo-controlled studies, LuraLean® (white kidney bean) induced moderate weight loss of up to 7.92   pounds on average in 8 weeks along with significant reductions in fasting lipid and post-meal glucose/insulin levels.White Kidney Bean extract   (Phaseolus vulgaris) inhibits amylase, the digestive enzyme   that breaks down carbohydrates to be absorbed into the bloodstream as   glucose. Phaseolus vulgaris has produced weight loss of 6.5 pounds on  average in 30 daysand abdominal fat reductions.

Studys also have proven that White Kidney Bean in combination with African Mango has even more benifits! Mango has amylase digestive enzyme inhibiting properties. This African mango extract also favorably regulates Leptin to decrease appetite and facilitate triglyceride removal from adipocytes (fat cells). It also regulates Adiponectin to facilitate insulin sensitivity, and Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase to inhibit glucose from converting to triglyceride fat in adipocytes. Irvingia has demonstrated weight loss of 20 pounds on average in 10 weeks in placebo-controlled trials.

Along with the benefits of White Kidney Bean and Mango, a proprietary green tea phytosome  enhances the metabolic effects of green tea through better absorption of green tea polyphenols in the blood, including EGCG. It induced an additional 1 pound of weight loss on average in 90 days   when combined with a reduced calorie diet.Now to top it off, in combination with all of these products when you add,  Green Coffee Extract.   Chlorogenic acid found in green coffee bean extract has been clinically shown to limit dangerous after-meal glucose surges.Diabetics or people with low blood sugars should be very careful if using this product. Everyone should check with a physician before using any products. Also, make sure that your products come from reputable sources. There are many “look-alike” products or placebos that are on the market that may be harmful to your health and are a waste of money.
