Detox Fat Away
Throughout the day, we expose ourselves to various toxins. Whether it be through the air we breathe or the food we eat, these accumulations build up toxins within our tissues and organs, thus creating a lethal as well as acidic environment for our metabolic and cellular processes. An active individual may find they are unable to lose weight despite regular, adequate exercise. This is often the result of fat soluble toxins unable to be removed from the body. At ACN Wellness, we understand that many difficult weight loss cases require a cleanse. We aim to identify what toxins need to be removed through specialized, personalized detoxification regimes.

Mind & Body Stressors
Stress can be detrimental to achieving weight loss. When an individual is stressed, cortisol (stress hormone) is released and can result to increased fat storage in the lower abdomen. We work to correct mental and physical stressors.

Nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids are necessary in activating hormones. Ensuring the body is receiving the proper amounts of nutrients is crucial for monitoring weight management. Nutrients stimulate metabolic functions and activate hormones. Often we need to assess the following nutrients in specialized lab testing to ensure weight loss:

Chromium Vanadium Zinc Iodine
B-vitamins & Folate Selenium Manganese Phosphorus
Cobalt & Boron Amino Acids Biotin Calcium

Hormones & Weight Gain
Hormones are a necessary component in weight management. They are responsible for stimulating metabolism and affect fat storage. Issues with insulin, thyroid, estrogen, cortisol, leptin, DHEA, and testosterone are the main hormones responsible for weight gain. Whether you have decreased or increased hormone levels, ACN Wellness works with patients to stabilize and balance hormone levels to ensure better weight loss.
