Holistic Weight Loss - A Comprehensive Guide

Today, people can access a wide range of weight loss programs, solutions, tips, and tricks of all kinds over the internet. 

Whether it is because of aesthetic reasons, comfort, self-esteem, medical needs, or else, a lot of people are trying to lose weight. 

The problem is, out of all the options for losing weight, very few of them are healthy, the rest being more or less harmful to your health depending on the option. 

As holistic natural health experts, we advise against those methods as you should not aim at losing weight at the expense of your health. 

The obesity epidemic has been a concern for a couple of decades and now it’s more than ever a growing health problem.

Everyone knows that not having excessive weight is better for health, yet today’s fashion is to consider excessive weight as something harmless, cute, and trendy. 

Of course, nobody should be the victim of discrimination because of his appearance, but normalizing and even promoting excessive weight as healthy is simply a dangerous and misleading lie.

This is why, in our opinion, the main criteria should always be health.

What is meant by holistic weight loss?

Holistic weight loss represents a comprehensive approach to the problem of excessive weight and how to resolve it. 

Therefore, a holistic approach to weight loss is immediately excluding people that are looking to lose weight when they have no health signs of excessive weight. 

For example, this applies to people suffering from eating disorders like anorexia. In this case, those people are pathologically looking to lose weight, even if they don’t have any excess weight, or worse if they are already lacking weight. 

Once the excessive weight is correctly established, a holistic approach will first look at determining the causes and the nature of it. 

Contrary to popular belief, various causes of excess weight exist, and depending on them, the adapted solutions will be drastically different. This also applies to the nature of excessive weight. 

Some people’s excessive weight is composed of a lot of fat and also water retention while others are not, and that will also change the strategy for holistic weight loss.

Finally, holistic weight loss will also look at all the related health issues and how they impact the person’s ability to lose weight. 

For instance, if someone has excessive weight because of a health disease like diabetes, it will be of paramount importance to address this issue along with any effort to lose weight.

Understanding Holistic Weight Loss

The fundamental difference between any common weight loss approach and holistic weight loss is that holistic weight loss priority is improving your health and not just making you lose weight. 

Of course, if you are desperate to lose weight, this might sound uninteresting, but it’s actually in the best interest of your health and the best solution for lasting results for losing weight. 

Indeed, all the people that are trying to lose weight for a long time know that most of the weight loss approaches are just generating a rollercoaster effect on your weight. 

Worse, some are actually making you gain more weight when you stop them. This is the opposite of a lasting result.

This is why, holistic weight loss starts completely differently, with putting your health needs at the center of the weight loss strategy. 

Why does holistic weight loss work better?

It comes down to three keys:

  • Variety of combined solutions
  • A personalized approach
  • The use of natural medicines diagnostics and treatments

As most excess weights are multifactorial, having a holistic approach will be decisive in addressing all the factors. This requires commitment as all aspects of health need to be addressed. 

In that regard, holistic weight loss will work on various health topics like:

  • Diet and nutrition
  • Movement and sport
  • General health state
  • Health problems (sleeping disorders, anxiety, stress, metabolism dysregulation, medication and side-effects, diagnosed diseases, etc.)
  • Emotional and mental state
  • Deficiencies (vitamins, minerals, etc.)
  • Hormonal balance
  • etc.

The personalized approach is capital to decide what will be the best route for success. Even if two people need to lose weight because of the same reasons and in more or less the same situation, it does not mean that they will achieve it the same way. 

The reality is that we all have different lives, with different environments, means, resources, constraints, and responsibilities. On top of that, we all have different health statuses, health backgrounds, and ongoing health problems.  

Trying to apply a unified solution to lose weight will simply not work for everyone, no matter how healthy this solution looks. 

To give you an example, let’s say that part of the unified solution to lose weight is to run multiple times per week to increase physical activity to lose weight. That might be good for some people but what about people suffering from knee conditions or back pain? And this is the same problem for any standardized solution you could think of.

This is why a holistic weight loss program should be created and organized by a holistic natural health expert who is trained and competent in natural medicines to create a personalized healthcare plan for successful and lasting weight loss.

Advice from holistic health experts

Many people are trying to lose weight for health reasons, but they don’t know how to do it, and often they end up hurting their health and regaining the same excessive weight or more. 

Weight loss has turned into an industry by itself, driven by unrealistic expectations and greed for financial profit. Some people are so obsessed with losing weight that they are willing to try anything no matter how harmful it is to their health. 

On the other hand, a lot of people have abandoned the idea of losing weight, even when suffering from obesity, leading to a poor health state, a reduced life expectancy, and an increased risk of developing severe diseases. 

But this situation can be improved by having a personalized holistic health approach that focuses on improving health while losing excessive weight. 

For that, we highly recommend that you don’t try it on your own but seek the help of a holistic natural health expert who will make you win a lot of time and effort to achieve lasting results.
