Treat the cause of obesity... resistance to Leptin.
Leptin is a hormone which is formed in the fat cells and which regulates the entire adipose metabolism. Someone with leptin sensitivity can eat any amount of food without putting on weight, but when the leptin resistance increases, appetite and 'hunger' increases and metabolism falls with the result that everything one eats is converted into fat and stored in the body.
What causes Leptin resistance?
The Leptin resistance increases dramatically with:
- Cortisone medication
- Any hormonal shift of progesterone and estrogen. For this reason, some young girls are prone to obesity during puberty, women who are taking contraceptives, pregnant women and those who have had hysterectomies, especially when it goes together with hormone replacement therapy, menopause.
- Stress and anxiety
- Viral infections
- Extended anaesthetics and emotional trauma
- Compulsive eating habits.
