Metabolic Conditions

The conditions below result from poor utilization of the foods we consume. Sometimes this is from excess consumption and sometimes it is from a problem at the cellular level causing improper utilization of the food. The problems at the cellular level come about from genetic susceptibility.These susceptibilities are turned on by environmental factors the genes are exposed to. An example of such environmental exposures is when the body is exposed to an excess sugar. Over time this creates insulin insensitively but it does not happen to everyone. That's where the genes come in. The result in either of the above cases (increased consumption or decreased utilization) is increase problems with the blood vessels and heart as this is the route the food particles are carried along.

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a condition that occurs from difficulties with metabolism but the actual process varies from person to person. Some have high cholesterol, high blood pressure and central abdominal fat. Others have poor fasting glucose, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. The central theme for all is an elevated risk for cardiovascular disease. It is similar to diabetes but you don't have to have difficulty with glucose to have this diagnosis.

Overweight / Obesity

Carrying excess weight can be embarrassing and present many physical and health challenges. Many try several diet and struggle to lose a few of the excess pounds only to gain it back again. There are many reasons for gaining and maintaining excess weight. The most common comes about simply from the aging process. That's right aging changes your metabolism. No secret there, but if we can figure out how this happens we can work on reversing it.

As we age our percentage of fat on our bodies increases and percentage of muscle decreases. This is occurs, of course, without doing any exercise or anything to prevent the increased accumulation of fat. With increased fat your metabolism will slow meaning you burn less calories at rest or resting metabolic rate. This is because fat has a slower metabolism than muscle. It is with this in mind that exercise is one of the keys to weight loss.

If you have had trouble loosing weight with diet and exercise alone, don't give up. It sometimes takes some time for the increased muscle to have its effect. On the other hand, there may be other things contributing to your excess weight as well. Hormone imbalance is one of the most common unknown causes for being overweight and having trouble loosing excess weight. Our phoenix integrative overweight doctors can help you get to the bottom of overweight concerns and help you loose the excess.


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The actual cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is not 100% known but there are several proposed mechanisms. Epstein Bar virus is one of these proposed mechanisms. Epstein Barr virus causes mononucleosis (mono) when the virus is initially contracted. The virus can lay dormant for years and then out of nowhere re-emerge. Instead of causing mono, it cause a debilitating fatigue know as chronic fatigue syndrome.

Some contributing factors to the syndrome is a poor mitochondrial function. Your mitochondria are the energy producing areas of your cells. Magnesium, for instance is needed for your mitochondria to produce energy. There is research showing that people with chronic fatigue syndrome have low magnesium levels and that when supplemented with magnesium, the fatigue improves. Intravenous magnesium therapy is the preferred but not essential method to deliver the magnesium. Your phoenix holistic chronic fatigue syndrome doctors will help you identify the best treatment options for you fatigue by providing proper testing. there are several reasons why someone might have fatigue, such as anemia, hormone imbalance, etc. The holistic doctors will help you identify the needed tests for the best treatments.
