A Holistic Approach to Weight Loss

Holistic medicine has become a hot topic in recent decades for its ability to address the root causes of a problem, rather than just treating the symptoms. This approach to weight loss has become so effective, as it focuses on the person as a whole being, helping those that are struggling with weight loss achieve meaningful, lasting results.

While other fads and diet trends come and go, a holistic weight loss program can be the key to losing the weight for good. At Bardisa Medical Center, we believe in providing each and every one of our clients with a personalized, holistic weight loss approach. Learn why a holistic approach to weight loss may be right for you, and discover some holistic methods that you can apply to your weight loss program.

Why Holistic Weight Loss?

Instead of relying on diets trends and fads, a holistic weight loss program will help you work with the underlying causes of the weight problem. You’ll tap into the reasons you’re not losing the weight, asking yourself questions such as:

  • Why do you overeat?
  • Why don’t you exercise more?
  • How can you start living a healthier lifestyle?

You may not realize it, but discovering the answers to these questions can help you get on the right track to long-term weight loss.

Holistic Weight Loss Methods

There are a number of different holistic weight loss methods. These methods can be adapted in order to figure out what works best for you.

  1. Meditation: Meditation can help individuals tap into mindfulness with their feelings and thoughts. When you become more mindful, you can start to be more aware of your hunger signals to see if you’re actually hungry or not.
  2. Journaling: Journaling is a wonderful way to self-monitor your eating habits so that you become more aware of what you are eating and why. Not only can listing out the foods you consume be helpful, but it may be wise to note the different feelings and thoughts associated with eating those types of food.
  3. Thinking Positive: When going through your weight loss journey, it can be easy to get discouraged, especially if you’re not seeing the result you desire fast enough. This can lead to negative thoughts and punishments, which will only reinforce the weight problem. At this time, it’s important to transform your thoughts into positive messages. Instead of saying “I can’t,” it’s important to think “I can.”
