Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome or (Metabolic Age) is a collection of symptoms that lead to the slowing down of the bodies’ metabolism that leads to a diseased state. To be classified as Metabolic syndrome patients will have 3 of the 5 following disease states:

1. Obesity
2. Coronary heart disease
3. Type-2 Diabetes
4. High blood pressure (hypertension)
5. High/ imbalanced cholesterol (dyslipidemia)

Almost all cases of metabolic syndrome could have been prevented by following a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Causes/triggers of metabolic syndrome

1. Sedentary lifestyle (exercising for less than 30minutes a day): sitting at work, driving to and from work, getting machine to do what was once manual labor etc.
2. Diet: eating insufficient fruit and vegetables, high salt and sugar/refined foods, high saturated fat, low omega 3s, high carbohydrate, low protein, high sugar/caffeinated drinks, low water intake.
3. Your relationship with food: eating quickly, poor nutrition in our soils, convenience foods, lack of food preparation skills, microwaving.
4. Inflammation: insulin resistance, chronic disease, stress, poor sleep, toxicity, high levels of abdominal fat.
5. Low active tissue mass (muscle): less than 30min exercise a day, sedentary lifestyle, poor protein intake and digestion.

Symptoms / consequences of Metabolic Syndrome

1. Metabolic: overweight, weight gain around the abdomen, history of failed weight loss attempts, carbohydrate cravings, diabetes, high fasting glucose test
2. Liver and kidney: non-alcoholic fatty liver
3. Reproductive: early puberty, lack of menstrual cycle, PCOS, infertility, low hormone levels, erectile dysfunction, impotence, prostate cancer
4. Cardiovascular: hypertension, vascular disease, high triglyceride levels, low HDL, high LDL, high fibrinogen, high uric acid
5. Skin: acne, skin tags, male pattern balding Neurological: depression, dementia, tinnitus, migraines,
6. Sleep: sleep apnea, snoring, daytime sleepiness/ fatigue

If your waist circumference is >102cm in males and >88cm in women then you MUST loose weight.

If you prefer to focus on getting healthy rather than loosing weight, I recommend getting adjusted, doing Tai chi and taking JuicePlus+ Supplements as a great start. Each of these moves is like getting an unfair advantage.
