Want to lose weight? Or maintain the weight you’ve got? For many of us, it’s a great idea. Research shows that even putting on as little as four kilograms increases the risk of heart disease in a healthy adult.
Research also shows that extra weight increases your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers, gall bladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnoea, infertility, respiratory problems and even gum disease.
What you can do about it
“I had been struggling with my weight for many years. Tried all the various programs, was active with gym and a personal trainer to build up my strength and increase my fitness level. But I still struggled with weight. I approached my trainer one day who is an ex First Grade Footballer and he recommended Kate. From my first meeting with Kate I was very impressed. The meetings were very informative, Kate gave me lots of strategies and answered any question I had concerning not only food but lifestyle too. I have been seeing Kate for two months and I have lost five kilos. Kate is a very enthusiastic person with a wealth of knowledge, who loves what she does. I enjoy meeting with Kate, because each session gives me more and more information at how to achieve my goal.”
“When I first met Daniela, I was highly sceptical of naturopathic treatments. I arrived as an obese 30-year-old father of three with a family history of early death due to heart conditions. Having been on medication for the best part of eight years, and consistently feeling lethargic, it was time to improve my well-being, in particular so I could be around to see my children grow up. Within four months, I’d reduced my weight by 14 kilos, and my body fat was significantly less. Most importantly, my cholesterol now exceeds the minimum healthy requirement, and I have so much more energy. The changes Daniela has helped me make are life changes, and have not just affected me personally, but also made me a better father and husband. I am less tired and angry, and have more energy to play with my children. Suffice to say that, I am now a believer in the benefits of naturopathy and in particular, Daniela.”
"Daniela, view this message as a whole-hearted recommendation that weight-watchers doubting your worth may call me. From my referral to you, I doubted you could fix my knee - you did. I also doubted you could program me to lose weight - you did. But – until today –, I never thought, ever thought you could give me the tools of confidence to carry on by myself! Cheers and thanks... you're a star!"
