Weight Loss Care Package
The hormone ghrelin acts quickly to initiate hunger when your stomach is empty and tells you to “EAT”, the signal to stop is sent to your brain when your stomach is full. The more you eat your belly stretches, and that means, you guessed it, the more you eat, the more you can fit in your stomach before you get the signal to stop eating. Looking in the mirror can be a shock… what happened!
Well, thankfully we have the hormone Leptin (from Greek word “thin”). Leptin is a mediating hormone of energy balance, suppressing food intake results in inducing weight loss.
It is now established that obese patients are leptin-resistant.* Foods like unprocessed oats boost metabolism and decrease leptin resistance. High protein diets, vegan diet, low carb, raw food, all can be modified to support leptin and Ghrelin levels, this a highly effective in weight management program and can make the difference between losing weight or not. *Ref: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17212793
Other factors that can contribute to weight management:
- High fibre foods
- Protein intake
- Stress level
- Leaky gut syndrome

“My daughter had a rash. We were looking for a solution to stop the outbreak. Brendon suggested a blood test to identify food sensitives. We removed the three foods, and that took away the rash but the miracle for me it took away the hormonal swings. I did not realise that having those foods contributed to the mood swings. The change from arguing every day to only once a month is enormous, around her period. The stress that was in the house before has decreased. The stress levels went down, the screaming matches went down, a lot more peace in the house.“
“My children are both dyslexic and have trouble focussing. I was about to put them on Ritalin when Nadine recommended specific supplementation for them. The day we started we noticed a difference in my daughter. She was calmer, more focussed, remembered information and could stay on task. Her school reports reflected this change. Both my children now take one nutritional supplement to help them at school and the difference is huge.“
“Combined with acupressure and my daily postural drainage, this regime has improved my general health, stabilised my weight (this used to seesaw) and enabled me to meet immune challenges without the need for antibiotics.I am most grateful for Nadine’s gentle support and encouragement and Brendon’s assistance over the years – thank you so much.“
