Have you considered some of the more natural ways to lose weight?
If you’ve decided to shed some pounds and have started researching the best ways to do so, chances are you’ve been flooded with information about the best diets, tricks, and fads the weight loss industry has to offer. Don’t let all of the information distract you from your main objective, though — to improve your overall wellness. There are some natural ways to lose weight that you may have not considered.
There are no quick fixes when it comes to losing weight. However, establishing a balanced eating routine and adding in, or slightly increasing, daily activity is a great place to start. Once a healthy diet has been established, and you feel like you’re getting some basic exercise in your day, you can focus on adding in some natural ways to keep taking off the weight.
Read on for five of the things we recommend to our clients looking to lose weight and improve their overall well-being.
1. IV Therapy
We all know that staying hydrated is essential to our wellness. But, did you know that hydration can help with weight loss in a variety of ways? It may suppress your appetite, boost your metabolism, and make exercise easier and more efficient, all of which could contribute to results on the scale.
Of course, drinking the amount of water your body ideally needs each day is important, but not always convenient. IV therapy not only provides your body with the hydration it needs to keep weight loss in check, but it can also add vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that help aid in weight loss.
10X Health offers IV services that may result in faster recovery after workouts, improved nutrient absorption in the body, increased metabolism, reduced fatigue and stress, and an improved immune system. We also tailor your IV drip to your specific needs and wellness goals (like losing weight), and making an appointment is simple.
2. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
While not everyone needs hormone replacement therapy, it can be useful for those experiencing a hormone imbalance that may be hindering the body’s ability to lose weight.
HRT will most often include one, or a combination, of three main hormones — estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The exact hormone used depends on the person, their goals, their current hormone levels, and their current health. When hormones are affecting metabolism and muscle growth, HRT can be an effective addition to a weight loss plan.
Hormones are naturally created in our bodies, but for many different reasons, their production can fluctuate. Hormone imbalances, especially in women, need to be addressed when trying to lose weight, as hormones dictate how fast your metabolism works, manage your energy production, and regulate your sugar levels–all of which affect your weight.
10X Health offers HRT using bioidentical hormones. These hormones are made from plant-based substances that mimic the hormones the body naturally makes. We also measure where your hormone levels are prior to treatment so that you are receiving exactly what you need to be successful on your weight loss journey.
There is no magic pill for losing weight, but the right supplements can keep you on the route to weight loss. There are many vitamins and minerals that are necessary for our bodies to lose weight. Knowing which ones your body needs can be confusing, but a simple blood test and genetic test can tell you a lot.
10X Health offers a simple blood test to check for nutrient deficiencies, hormone optimization, and glucose control — all of which affect weight loss. Finding out which nutrients you are deficient in can make a huge difference in the way you lose weight, or in the ease of losing it. Once you know which nutrients to supplement for, losing weight may be easier.
10X Health supplements provide targeted support for a number of symptoms and conditions. Weight loss is one that may be helped along by the right supplement plan. Our supplements are high quality, undiluted, and specifically designed to help your personal wellness journey.
4. Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that may help remove fat from targeted areas of your body. During a red light therapy session, non-thermal irradiance lasers or LED lights expose and penetrate cells and tissue to low red and near-infrared (NIR) levels. In this process, the lights target the fat in the cells underneath the skin to minimize fat while increasing collagen production. This results in fat reduction, smoother skin, and improved elasticity, effectively reducing cellulite.
10X Health uses red light therapy as a component of our Superhuman Protocol. The Superhuman Protocol regenerates your body from the inside out and promotes well-being through a three-step process. Red light therapy is the last step in the Superhuman Protocol and naturally promotes weight loss by increasing cellular energy and boosting metabolism.
5. Cold Plunge
Who knew that immersing yourself in cold water could help with weight loss? It can. Cold-water swimming, or immersion, boosts the body’s stores of so-called “brown adipose tissue” (BAT), a type of “good” body fat activated by low temperatures. BAT burns calories to maintain body heat, which can lead to weight loss, unlike “bad” white fat which stores energy and hikes obesity risks.
The authors of a new review published in the International Journal of Circumpolar Health say that taking a dip in cold water may be just the thing if you are looking to reduce the amount of unhealthy body fat that you have. Cold water exposure might also lower your risk for certain conditions such as diabetes.
The 10X Pro Plunge offers both cold and warm water therapy. By spending three minutes a day immersed in cold water, you may be able to reduce inflammation, improve metabolism, and keep your weight loss moving in the right direction.
There are many ways to improve and naturally support your weight loss journey. From IV therapies to cold water plunges, 10X Health can help you decide what is best for your wellness and weight management. Reach out to us today!
