Weight Loss Q & A

Why is it so important to be a healthy weight?

In addition to boosting your confidence and feeling better, getting to an ideal weight has long-lasting impacts on your overall health. If you’re overweight or obese, you increase your risk for certain conditions like:

  • Asthma
  • Sleep apnea
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallstones
  • Certain cancers
  • High blood pressure
  • Liver disease

While extra weight can cause many of these conditions, it can also exacerbate existing conditions and accelerate the damage they do on your body.

How do I know if I’m overweight?

A scale known as the Body Mass Index (BMI) is a universal gauge to determine if you are carrying excess weight. The index factors your height and weight to determine where you fall on the BMI. Here’s how the numbers are categorized:

  • Over 30: Obese
  • 25-29.9: Overweight
  • 18.5-24.9: Healthy weight
  • Under-18.5: Underweight

Dr. Cabrera goes over your numbers to help you understand where you stand and how it’s impacting your health.

What factors impact weight loss?

Dr. Cabrera has years of experience helping men, women, and children lose excess weight. She doesn’t focus on calories in and calories out. Weight loss is far more complex than that. The programs at Holistic Care Solutions are highly customized and address critical factors that impact your ability to lose weight, such as:

  • Balancing hormones
  • Proper nutrition
  • Adequate sleep
  • Emotional support

Dr. Cabrera meets with you to conduct a comprehensive exam, understand your health history, and develop a plan that addresses your goals and needs.

How do hormone imbalances affect weight?

Your exam may reveal that your weight loss efforts are hindered by hormone imbalances that create problems like:

  • Sluggish metabolism
  • High cortisol levels
  • Insulin resistance
  • Leptin resistance
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Low or high testosterone
  • Thyroid problems
  • Autoimmune disorders

Treatment options at Holistic Care Solutions include homeopathy, holistic medicine, acupuncture, therapeutic touch, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, and natural botanicals.
