Over weight with high blood Pressure, high cholesterol, high blood Sugar and Stress
Fourteen months ago I began the long awaited day when I finally stopped saying “I’ll start tomorrow” and I started today. I began with a visit to my doctor and discovered that my blood pressure was vey high, my cholesterol and blood sugar levels were elevated and I was on my way down a slippery slope. The one thing the doctor did not need to tell me was that I was way overweight; although he did confirm that diagnosis as well. I did not want to start taking drugs for my blood pressure and set out on a plan to take control of my life! <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office”>
I began to work on my weight with the Blood Group Diet and some body shaping activities. I did very well for four months losing 7 .5 Kilos but for some unknown reason just stopped flat!….no matter how well I stuck to the diet or exercised, my scales read the same every day. I was very happy at least not to be gaining weight again even over Christmas. I was fitting comfortably into my clothes and my blood pressure had come down; but I was still on the borderline of hypertension and wanted to lose more weight.
In my search over the next six months to try to find out why I was stalled and wanting to get back on track with getting my health, lifestyle and weight. I realised i needed to see a health professional. In my search I discovered Integrated Health and Jason Mallia PhD. I found that Jason specialised in the Blood Group Diet, and as I also discovered his holistic approach to health, wholeness and well being.
Jason worked with me supporting my personal preference for a natural approach. In turn I discovered that there are a many interrelated processes in our bodies that can inhibit our metabolism and cause our bodies to be out of balance and thus contributing to my health problems.
Jason suggested we first address the problem with a three tear approach , first address the health concerns which affected my weight and health , secondly detox the body, then finally address the weight more specifically with the right program
With Jason’s support I continued on the blood group diet along with the SHAKE IT weight management program which is the approach Jason uses to specifically target individuals with weight concerns. Since this time my health and well being have improved dramatically! Incorporated in the program was the use of herbal supplements tailored to my specific health concerns and needs based on the information gained from the full body scans used to show what is specifically going on the inside. More recently Jason has added the Integrated health exercise program to support muscle health, that in turn helps my metabolism to burn fat faster and more importantly to maintain my weight loss.
Over the last six months I have lost a further 8 kilos of body fat (15 kg in total), my blood pressure is down to a very health range , I have more energy and am calmer and enjoying life. I recommend the program to anyone who wants an easy , individualised program to lose weight and feel well.
