What is Your Body Type
You go to the doctor, you do all these tests and they say you are healthy but you can’t sleep at night, you exhausted, you crave everything, you have blood sugar problems.
The problem in healthcare right now they look at everything separate and they don’t look at the entire body.
You will go around thinking you are healthy. You might hear, “Well all you need to do is lose a little weight and those other problems will go away”.
That is absolutely not true. You have to get your health back before you lose weight.
The weight is there for a protective mechanism. As a person develops more stress they start holding onto more energy called potential energy. People are not fat they just have too much potential energy.
They are four body types which are:
The first body type I will start with is the thyroid body type which is weight all over, hair loss, loose skin and outside eyebrows falling out, dry skin, thinning of the hair and crave alcohol, breads, pancakes, waffles and crackers.
They have very little nutrition and will crave carbs. However, nutrients fix the craving not the carbs. They feel sluggish, they have cold feet, they are tired no matter how much sleep they get, they may feel a little apathetic or depressed.
This body type can’t absorb vitamins, so they will take all these supplements but don’t really see anything different in their overall health.
The adrenal body type which is the most common, has a sagging belly and might have a buffalo hump and a round face.
They think they need to do more sit-ups, but a millions sit-ups won’t get rid of the belly because it is a hormone that is causing it called cortisol. What is happening, the cortisol (a destructive hormone) is eating up the protein in the leg and the butt and putting it in the stomach as fat.
This body type should not be exercising because they are in stress mode.
The adrenal is a stress gland that is on top of the kidneys and pumps out the cortisol. The adrenal body type will crave chocolate, salt, crunchy cheesy things.
They will have sinuses problems, allergies, they can’t absorb calcium so they get tight calves and tight shoulders.
Where does that calcium go? The calcium goes on top of the knees as arthritis or fibromyalgia which is pain all over. They have old injuries that are stiff, their flexibility goes down and posture will go down.
Then there is the ovary body type. The weight is in a pouch bellow the belly button and a saddle bag which means weight in the hips and thighs.
This body type will have ovarian issues, menstrual problems and hot flashes. They will crave creamy things like milk products such as ice cream, cream cheese and yogurt because their body needs calcium.
Lastly, we have the liver body type. They will have a pot belly or beer belly. Beer destroys the liver.
The liver is leaking into the belly. It usually will also look like a protruding belly and they will have right shoulder pain.
They will get grouchy in the morning and will get up an hour before the alarm clock goes off. They cannot feel refreshed. They will also have skin issues like itchy skin and digestive problems like bloating.
They crave fried foods of any kind. They should not be on protein diets. Sometimes their backs are real stiff and will have a yellowish color in the corner of their eye. They most likely will have bad breath.
