Weight Loss Programme
Where do we start?
Our professionals work with you to determine who you are as a whole person, not just your difficulties with weight. We look at addressing your mental and behavioural relationship with food, nutrition and exercise. We gain an understanding of:
Your relationship with food
Not just physically but mentally. This helps to determine the triggers in your body and mind that make you eat i.e. are you eating because you’re bored, do you eat when you’re stressed in work, why you eat the foods you do etc…Basically understanding the causes of your food intake and how to work with that.
Your relationship with exercise
Physical activity in conjunction with a sound diet is a core component of holistic weight loss. Exercise does more than just burn calories: It changes your chemistry, releases powerful neurotransmitters, strengthens and revitalizes muscles, increases energy and contributes to happiness, tranquillity and a sense of well-being.
Your relationship with nutrition
We investigate how much you understand about food. What you can tell us about the nutritional aspect of food, how to read the labels correctly, understanding the ratio aspects of the different food types and how to cook the foods you love in a healthy and well-proportioned way.
Our team will develop a tailored programme that will look at improving your fitness, your diet and nutrition as well as your emotional needs.
Our holistic approach to treating obesity will improve many areas of your life whilst boosting the body’s own ability to heal and reduce the chances of developing further chronic diseases. We want to reinvigorate a passion for healthy food, exercise and emotional wellbeing.
The Medical Bit
Obesity is generally caused by eating too much and moving too little. If you consume high amounts of energy, particularly fat and sugars, but don’t burn off the energy through exercise and physical activity, much of the surplus energy will be stored by the body as fat. There can however be other factors that play a part. We also use specialised treatments as part of the programme, such as:
The activity in your brain determines everything you feel and do. Neurofeedback is a way to train brain activity. Brainwaves tell us a great deal about how you feel and function; your thought habits, stress levels, underlying mood and overall brain function. Through using sensors on the scalp, we can measure and monitor this activity. With brain analysis software (QEEG brain map), we can identify what specific activity is giving rise to your symptoms. So basically understanding where the triggers are coming from that cause you to turn to food.
Korean Specific Technique (KST)
KST is a healing protocol used to locate and correct/release areas of blockage, distortion, subluxation, interference, stagnation and other stresses in the body. It is used to improve body function, promote natural healing, release physical and emotional stresses. We can also locate and address areas that need attention such trigger points, emotional issues, addictions and bad habits. We identify not just the underlying problem but also any other symptoms you suffer one such as headaches and pain due to your weight problem.
This is basically the science behind how nutrients affect our mood and behaviour. It examines the relationship between food and our internal experience. People often eat to relieve feelings of anxiety or stress, without realizing that their dietary choices actually result in greater fatigue, stress, and mood imbalance over the long-term. Nutritional psychology provides mental health professionals with another important layer for understanding a patient as a whole, interconnected person.
You will be involved every step of the way and a programme will be developed, based on the discussions you have with the team.
In the spirit of the holistic tradition, you will be able to understand the techniques, principles, and approaches you need to achieve your goal, that resonates uniquely with you. No two people are alike, and no one method is a panacea. Our holistic approach to weight loss will improve many areas of your life, boost the body and help you sustain a life where you are comfortable with food and understand it.
