Naturopathic Medical Weight Loss Program: A Patient’s Story
Sue (fictional name) is a 39 year old female who came into our Gilbert, AZ clinic with concerns of weight gain for the past 11 months. During that time period she had gained 22 pounds, with most of the weight being put on around her thighs and abdominal area. She mentioned that she was more irritable than normal recently, had trouble falling asleep at night, and that her monthly cycles were off. Sue had previously seen her primary care doctor 3 months ago who completed a complete thyroid workup that came back normal. After listening to Sue tell me her story and medical history, we ordered some labs to get a better picture of the case. One week later, her labs came back and revealed that she had high cortisol levels throughout the day, especially at night. Sue also had an elevated HbA1c, slighted increased LDL and total cholesterol, elevated fasting glucose, as well as increased and imbalanced estrogen levels in her body
My assessment was:
- Weight gain due to estrogen dominance
- High Cholesterol
- Poor diet as indicated by HbA1C / fasting glucose
- Elevated Cortisol
Sue’s case was actually a fairly routine example of the average overworked, and overstressed American mother. Hormonal imbalances are common when patients are under tremendous stress over prolonged periods of time. In my clinical experience, poor diet speeds up the onset of hormonal problems. After completing my full evaluation and assessment, Sue and I formulated a treatment plan that was not overwhelming and easy to follow. First, we worked on incorporating some basic diet changes such as eliminating soda, fast foods, and ice cream after dinner. Next, we added in some great stress management techniques to get her daily cortisol levels down. Finally, I prescribed Sue a couple supplements that work to balance female hormones to optimal levels.
After 2 months of treatment and lifestyle changes Sue followed up with me. At this point in time, her weight was down 11 pounds overall and she was feeling hopeful again. She had followed all my dietary recommendations perfectly and was very proud of the progress she had made. She was still experiencing some stress at work, so we decided to add in yoga and bicycling into her routine to help her manage cortisol even further. Sue was satisfied with the care she received and actually referred a friend into out weight loss wellness program.
