Obese Vs. Overweight: Clues To Tell The Difference And Treatment Methods
Dallas 10/28/2012 10:00 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)
It was discovered as recently as 2009 that obesity may not be only about eating too much and not exercising enough. In fact, obesity may be caused by an infection with your genetic makeup making it impossible to fight them off and thus it is next to impossible to lose weight.
The two most likely suspects in this case are a virus (Coxsackie) or a bacterium (Helicobacter pylori), these two pestilences often occur together although they have been known to attack separately. The epidemic is most likely due to how widespread the Coxsackie B virus and H. pylori are in food and especially ground water, well water and even ice machines. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help reduce obesity because the side effects of Bio-Identical HRT are increased energy, sex drive and muscle tone.
The distinction between overweight and truly obese lies in that those who suffer from obesity tend to have a normal overall percentage of body fat. It is the distribution of the fat that makes up the most obvious difference; obese people tend to have a larger accumulation of abdominal fat. While they may also have fatty deposits on the back of their knees their fat distribution is mostly trunkal. The biggest problem with this disease is not the fat but the hormone deficiency that eventually is produced due to the hormone somatostatin being produced and blocking the the secretion of important hormones like the growth hormone (HGH), insulin, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), and several others. Hormone Replacement Therapy will eventually help reverse this effect causing some much desired results.
To supplement HRT there is a diet that was designed by a British endocrinologist, Dr. A.T.W. Simeone. This diet not only helps those suffering from obesity keep their weight under control, but those who are not may lose a dramatic amount of weight without fatigue or hunger. “The China Study” by Dr. Colin Campbell, is a book that complements Dr. Simeone’s diet plan and further explains its success.
If you believe you are suffering from Obesity, you should first talk to your doctor. If they decide HRT is worth it ask about Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and follow the Dr. Simeone and Dr. Campbell philosophies to complement the therapy.
