Overweight is not the same problem as obesity. In fact, I do not have the answer to either problem, only a part of the answer.
In obese women, the ovaries, pancreas and thyroid are all involved. Perhaps the adrenals, the brain satiety center, and the liver are also involved. Maybe it's as simple as gold accumulation in all these places. Perhaps it is bacteria in all these places. When you weigh close to 300 pounds obviously some organ isn't working right. Try several things, but not a starvation diet.
The cause is not eating too much. Try removing all gold: gold teeth, gold jewelry and gold rings. Replace them with non metal varieties. After removing the gold, pull the remaining gold out of your tissues with thioctic acid (2 or 3 a day for several months). Make sure kidneys are able to excrete the gold instead of making crystals by doing a kidney cleanse. Gold accumulates in the pancreas, the brain (possibly in a control center here) and the ovaries (causes some infertility here). Also try clearing the body of all bacteria and parasites by regularly using a NEOClark. Use the Bowel Program to evict the last of the Shigellas. Be very careful to avoid nonsterile dairy products. Try cleansing your liver by doing liver cleanses. Get 3,000 stones out.
Make sure you are getting enough nutritious food; make carrot and vegetable juice; use no commercial beverages. Avoid moldy food-don't take risks. If all these measures bring your weight down to the level of mere overweight give yourself good grades.
Overweight is a low energy condition. Your food is being turned into fat instead of energy. The decision not to make energy is being made in the liver mainly, but perhaps other organs as well.
Try cleaning the liver until no more stones come out: get at least 2,000 stones. Notice that as the liver gets cleaner you get more and more energy right after each cleanse. Some cleanses have a dramatic effect. Others do not. This suggests that a certain part of the liver is the responsible part. Soon after the cleanse-within a week-the same old lassitude sets in. But during these few days notice how your body feels. It feels light. Your abdomen feels tight, like it's a part of you again. You're mind isn't on food throughout the day. It's very easy to lose weight, in fact you may lose five pounds in these few days without dieting or exercising. Definitely, your long-lost weight regulation is back in force. But then it vanishes. Fortunately, a bit of the weight loss stays with you, and by repeating cleanses (only once in 2 weeks, though) you can shed the pounds you want and gain energy in a permanent way. It is probably the way nature intended.
Try increasing your bowel movements. Notice how cats and dogs seem to derive energy from emptying their bowels. A cat walks to its litter box; after emptying its bowels and carefully covering it up, it jumps from the box and runs away. It now has its playful mood. A body chemical, acetylcholine, plays a role in emptying the bowels. Acetylcholine is a necessary operator for many of our muscles. Is there a disturbance in our acetylcholine metabolism in overweight conditions?
Coax your body to release more acetylcholine, at least in the intestines, by using a herbal laxative like Cascara sagrada. Other varieties are useful, too, but don't use a drug laxative: it burdens the liver more. Try to have three bowel movements a day.
Shigella bacteria can cause dreadful constipation. Immediately, the body feels sluggish, abdomen feels disconnected or hanging out. A nameless hunger sets in. Keep a close watch on dairy foods to make sure they are sterile. Zap when in doubt and do the Bowel Program.
Exercise helps as long as you keep at it. Strict dieting works as long as you keep doing it. But there's the problem. When you stop, you lose ground. It doesn't solve the problem of an inefficient body metabolism.
Raising thyroid levels helps but this can be dangerous. Raising thyroid levels naturally, by removing toxins is a very effective method-provided it was low to begin with. Overweight people often have a low body temperature, showing that the thyroid is involved: it is under producing. But giving the body extra thyroid doesn't solve the thyroid's problem. It only temporarily solves the rest of the body's problem. The thyroid will have viruses and heavy metals in it. The metal in your mouth drains downward to the stomach passing very close to the thyroid. Perhaps its iodine uptake is inhibited. The chlorine in water and bromine in bread may inhibit iodine uptake by the thyroid, too. After all, they are all halogens. Stop eating bleached bread and filter out the chlorine in your water. If this raises your body temperature you could expect better weight control.
The traditional herb, Fucus, was used to treat thyroid problems (and overweight) in days when herbs ruled medicine. Herbalists made a point of discouraging use of plain iodine. Fucus, they said, was much more effective. See Recipes.
If all these measures don't work for you, at least you have improved your health trying.
There are some advantages of being overweight. Overweight people seem to weather illness better. They laugh more. But one look in the mirror or at the scales ruins it. Put away the long mirror and scales. Don't ruin your whole life over it. Make a reasonable effort and then let go. Enjoy your stay on this planet.
Underweight can be just as difficult as overweight to correct. Once the stomach has been trained to say "full" or "full enough," even after a few mouthfuls, it is difficult to heal. Salmonellas in the stomach wall are often seen. Giardia and other common parasites, that don't belong in the stomach, are seen here in cases of underweight.
The stomach is invaded by bacteria and parasites when its immunity is low. The common culprit is tooth metal draining down continuously into the stomach. Remove every bit of mouth metal. Don't cook or eat with metal. Stimulate your appetite with B-vitamins. And, again, the liver plays a role. If it is toxic with mold, it may say "eat no more" and the body obeys.
A stage of cancer illness is weight loss. This is called cachexia. The victim believes he or she is eating enough. They may not even have a poor appetite. Yet weight drops steadily. This metabolic problem has been studied scientifically. A chemical, hydrazine sulfate (prescription only), can reverse it to some degree. Use 65 mg three times a day for 30 days. Perhaps a lesson taken from cachexia metabolism could be applied to obesity. For the cachexia sufferer, life would end sooner if high calorie supplements were not used. But don't use canned "calorie boosters". They are polluted-often with the very solvent that makes the condition worse. Instead, make an eggnog: ½ cup boiled milk, ¼ cup boiled whipping cream, a raw egg (exterior carefully washed), 1 tsp. olive oil, a banana, honey, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg to taste. Mix all in a blender. Drink 1 cup a day. Vary it daily to keep it interesting.
If all this fails, give yourself credit for achieving health improvement and shift your focus to a different project. Underweight is not all bad either.
