Metabolism – The Holy Grail of Wellness – Part 3

What is the Microbiome and How does it affect our Metabolism?

Microbiome changes (trillions of microbes) in our gut are especially significant relating to our metabolism and inflammation.

What is the microbiome?

We have approximately 70 trillion human cells in our body, and 100 trillion non-human cells such as fungi, bacteria, yeast, viruses. We are basically “a bag of germs covered in human skin”. There are typically about 2.2 million bacteria per square centimeter which is .6 inches square. We actually have microbiome communities in our body. For example we have a microbiome that is on the eye, a different microbiome on the eyelid, and yet a different microbiome on our forearm. Our bloodstream has a microbiome, so does our brain, our throat, digestive tract, etc.

Most of these microbes live in the large intestine and it is critical they be healthy.


What we know is that thin people have a different microbiome that looks like a rain forest – high in diversity

People with obesity, their microbiome looks like a weed patch or that somebody cut or burned down the forest and now the weeds have grown.

We need to have diversity in the microbiome! We think germs are bad, but most of the germs are healthy when our immune system is healthy and it’s all in balance.

What kind of foods feed the garden within us? A diversity of food with fiber feed the microbiome. We need a variety of fresh vegetables and fruit!

With great metabolism we are lean, fit, and have youthful vitality for life.

A damaged metabolism is obesity, disease and aging. We Can Change That.

Renovare uses Photobiomics -or photons of light- to change the microbiome. Our Low-Level Light Lasers include the Fx 405 which is used for brain health issues and the Zerona which is used for our second brain – our gut. The Zerona is FDA approved for losing inches as in fat loss – Safely and Effectively.

The lasers we use at Renovare turn off inflammation and help with our second brain and reduce obesity by changing the microbiome.

Do you desire increased microbiome, reduced inflammation, reduced fat, and an increased metabolism so that you can enjoy a life full of vitality?

How Meta-Inflammation Impacts Our Metabolism

Meta- Inflammation -What is It?

Chronic overnutrition and obesity induces low-grade inflammation throughout the body. Termed “meta-inflammation,” this chronic state of inflammation is influenced by macrophages (immune cells) located within the colon, liver, muscle, and adipose tissue.

Meta-inflammation has been linked to

  • Insulin Resistance *
  • fluid retention
  • High blood pressure
  • atherosclerosis
  • inflammatory bowel disease
  • cancer
  • autoimmunity
  • profound impacts on global health

Metabolic Syndrome = Insulin Resistance. *

Insulin Resistance is what we term “Type 3 Diabetes” which is worse than Type 2 because it is Strongly Linked to Alzheimer’s. Instead of converting food to energy we convert food to Fat and Free Radicals that create massive injury & inflammation.

Inflammation is the Gateway to diseases of aging and Why Metabolism is the “Holy Grail of Wellness”.

When We Fix Metabolism We Can Slow Aging and Sometimes Reverse It.

In 2004 the above information was initially published. The chief medical and scientific officer of the American Heart, American Diabetes and American Cancer Society got together stated that Metabolic Syndrome (Extra belly fat) is the “Gateway to Chronic Disease”.

Metabolic Syndrome Doubles heart disease and stroke, Elevates Triglycerides and Cholesterol, leads to High Blood Pressure, Erectile Dysfunction, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Type 3 Diabetes – Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Decline, Osteoperosis, Fatty Liver, Obesity, Sleep Apnea, Sarcopenia (Loss of Muscle. This would also mean loss of bone), Type 2 Diabetes

VAT – Visceral Adipose Tissue is an inflammation factory. This is the excess belly fat.

How Do we solve this?

Fixing the Metabolism – which isn’t always easy! We need synergy – an integrated program which addresses all the puzzle pieces. Synergy – 1+1+1=9!

We have multiple choices to help you get on the right path including laser therapies to help improve your mitochondria and reduce belly fat, Wellness Mentors for assistance with improving your food, stress reduction and nutritional choices or schedule a consultation with Dr. Gerhart to get you started on a Metabolic Age Reversal Program.

Metabolism – The “Holy Grail” of Wellness

What is metabolism? Metabolism is converting fuel to energy…OR food to fat and free radicals (which creates massive inflammation and damage. This is like rust on the inside and creates hyper- accelerated aging) A damaged metabolism massively weakens our immune system. Why? Because our immune systems needs energy, energy, energy to work correctly.

The Mitochondria is in every cell of body. This is where we make energy. Metabolism really happens on the cell level.  We want them to be efficient. LLLT (Low Level Light Therapy) or Photbiomodulation, uses low levels of light to activate or energize and rev up the mitochondria so that we not only make more energy, but make more of the mitochondria. Our metabolism depends on how many mitochondria we have! This is called Mitochondrial Biogenesis. If we are healthy, we have up to 2000 per microscopic cell in our heart and our brain. When they work right, they generate energy called ATP.  This ATP is recycled many times and a 145-pound male should make at least 160 pounds of  ATP a day. When we are not healthy, we don’t make enough. Now we are tired, we put on fat, we ache, and many other problems.

By 2030 half of all Americans will be overweight. If you are even a little overweight, chances are you are also inflamed. They are probably overweight in the belly – which is known as the “fat that kills”. Excess belly fat, especially that around the waist, is a major source of inflammation.

What kind of diseases caused by too much inflammation? Alzheimer, Cancer, heart disease, arthritis, dementia, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, accelerated aging, etc. The risk of pneumonia and Covid risk also goes way up.

The average American diet per year is over 150 pounds of sugar. Sugar makes us fat, especially in the mid section – the gut area. We have been told fat makes us fat. This is Not true. Healthy fats make us lean. Sugar makes us fat! The worse kind of sugars are the ones you drink (Sodas, energy drinks, etc.) Eating unprocessed food is one of the number one things you can do to make the biggest difference in your health.

  • Eat only fresh, live foods.  
  • Minimize food that comes out of food coffins – plastic, boxes, aluminum foil, cans.
    • Where do you find these healthy foods in the supermarket? Around the outer aisles.

Meta – inflammation

We as Americans eat too many calories and too few nutrients. Think of junk food such as a Twinkie. It is full of calories and no nutrients. We want to eat foods that are the opposite – they have a ton of nutrients and very few calories such as Kale. Too many calories without enough nutrients creates inflammation, throughout the body called Meta Inflammation,

  • Chronic overnutrition and obesity induces low-grade inflammation throughout the body. Termed “meta-inflammation,” this chronic state of inflammation is mediated by macrophages located within the colon, liver, muscle, and adipose tissue. Especially around the belly.
    • When we treat the belly with laser, people lose inches, but we are really reducing their inflammation because inflammation damages our metabolism.

Youthful Vitality – Even as We Age

We all want to live well – to the very end of life.

The top biomarker of healthy aging is muscle strength.  How do we test this?

The most researched metric is Hand Grip Strength – over 400,000 research papers in Pub Med.   Why?

Grip strength is more than muscle – it is a measure of nerve activation and nervous system health – especially of the brachial nerve plexus from the spinal cord to your arm, heart, lung, thyroid, and parathyroid glands.  This means a weak grip strength can relate to thyroid problems, osteoporosis (parathyroid problems), heart, lung problems and much more.

We improve this by boosting your nerve activation to recruit significantly more muscle fibers resulting in stronger grip strength. The Neural Drive that Powers Grip Powers the  Heart, Lungs, Thyroid, Parathyroid, and much more!

What Is Zerona and Age Reversal?

ZERONA is the easy way to remove unwanted fat!  ZERONA is a great way to kick-start a weight loss program.  ZERONA is the first medical device cleared by the FDA for the circumference reduction of the waist, hips, thighs and arms.  Zerona laser treatments work by using low-level laser energy to cause fat cells to gradually release the fat they’re holding, which is then removed by the body’s natural cleaning process.

The FDA has cleared ZERONA as both a safe and effective method to reduce unwanted fat and inches off your hips, waist, and thighs. In just 3 weeks (after nine treatments) you can expect a contoured waist, hips, and thighs. ZERONA does not require an extensive time commitment: Each treatment lasts only 40 minutes.

With the cost of liposuction ranging as high as $12,000 per treatment, Zerona Body Contouring offers a low-cost, non-invasive, non-surgical alternative. Factor in the ZERO recovery time and no risk of scarring, and the Zerona price is even better! 

o

Healthy Metabolism determines our energy, health, lean fitness, and Wellness.  Almost 80% of our population suffers with Metabolic syndrome also known as Insulin resistance.  This means that instead of our food converting efficiently to energy it converts to fat and destructive free radicals that drive massive inflammation.

Repairing Your Metabolism

This is the holy grail of fat loss.  When you repair your metabolism, you never need to diet again.  We combine Zerona with NOW-T sessions (interval training to turn on your metabolism), Power Plate therapy (to drain fat and toxins via your lymphatics), and painless keto fasting (skip breakfast and replace with coffee/green tea and MCT oil).   Supporting your healthy eating and creating a customized supplement program are part of your Metabolism Repair program.
