Metabolism – The Holy Grail of Wellness – Part 4
Let’s face it, Diets Don’t Work! By the time clients enter the “Diets Don’t Work” program, they are out of control with food. But it’s not just the food. It is the obsessive thoughts about food, weight, diets, and body image that consume our lives.
We need to experience an internal change for lasting results.
Invasive procedures such as gastric bypass surgery and liposuction are a temporary fix. Many people gain the weight back and sometimes they are heavier than before.
Liposuction has become the most popular plastic surgery, with more than 450,000 operations a year – and costing thousands of dollars. Drs Teri L. Hernandez and Dr. Robert Eckel of the University of Colorado led a new study on patients who had liposuction. The results WERE NOT GOOD. They found that 40% of the patients were unhappy with the results and years later something was happening with the patients.
Fat cells are the biggest part of your endocrine system and when you disrupt this endocrine system and remove the fat, the body signals to grow new fat cells. This fat from these patients returned in the upper arms and upper abdominal areas.
In knowing this information, why would you kill or remove White Adipose Tissue (fat cells)?
There are significant physiological functions of White Adipose Tissue (fat cells):
- Appetite regulation
- Glucose and lipid metabolism
- Angiogenesis (new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels)
- Fibrinolysis (process that prevents blood clots from growing and becoming problematic.)
- Body weight homeostasis
- Vascular tone control
What about Cool Sculpting?
With Cool Sculpting you lay under the device which works on an area at a time. It actually grabs the fat, which is painful, and it kills the fat cells. The Patients grow back fat cells as shown in Image 1.1 above. Plus it can create nerve damage, and cause damage as seen above. Clinical studies show a loss of only 3.2 mm after 12 weeks. Not unlike other weight loss methods, millions of dollars are put into the marketing of this product to make it look glamorous.
Zerona is an American made Low Level Light Therapy Laser product from Erchonia. This company has put over 5 million dollars in research and development. They own 18 of the 21 FDA clearances in the world on Low Level Lasers (LLLT).
Zerona is a red wavelength in the visible spectrum (you can see it). It is safe, effective and has no pain or down time.
Russian scientists have determined that with DNA mitosis (when cells divide) there is this light energy that is emitted from the cell that ranges between 630 to 640 nm (nanometers) wavelength. The Zerona red wavelength is 635 nm. It is right where DNA mitosis happens!
Zerona clinical trials were done with placebo controls. Patients that came to the study couldn’t change their diet or their exercise regimen, so the only variable was the laser. The patients were lasered 3 times a week, for 2 weeks. At the end of the study over 93% happy with results. 3.7 inches.
The results from Zerona are actual “Fat Loss”
- 4 inches = Apx. 5.0 lbs. of fat
- 4 inches = 2.7 Liters of Fat
- Successful Liposuction = 2.3 Liters of Fat
Are you wondering “Where does the fat go?”
The below graphic shows the fat’s remarkable journey. The laser induces a temporary pore, and the contents of the fat allows triglycerides and fatty materials to seep out to the extracellular space and your lymphatic system helps process that. The fat cell is still alive, it is just deflated. It is made healthy by getting the content to exit to the extracellular space. In 25 years of Erchonia doing research and making lasers they have never had one side effect or adverse reaction.
Below shows the journey this opened fat cell takes. We are using the fat as fuel, and the laser helps speed up this process.
