Metabolic Syndrome Treatment Melbourne

A cluster of symptoms that puts the person at risk of contracting other conditions such as diabetes, or even heart disease, dictates metabolic syndrome. Naturopathy can help address it before it gets too late.

What Is Metabolic Syndrome?

This does not point to any one condition or disease but rather a collection of different factors that act as precursors to more serious conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke etc. The underlying reason for these is the accumulated fat in the arteries, limiting blood flow to the heart and eventually resulting in heart disease. The syndrome is more prevalent in those who are overweight and obese. Hence weight is something to be closely monitored. 

When one has the syndrome, it also leads to insulin resistance, which disables the cell’s ability to take up insulin and thus, the glucose levels in the blood build up, leading to Type 2 Diabetes.

What Are The Factors That Put One At Risk Of Metabolic Syndrome?

While being overweight and obese is one of the major factors, it also matters where the fat is deposited. There are two kinds of body shapes when it comes to obesity. The apple-shaped body is seen in those who have fat deposited in the waist area and have a tendency to gain weight in the abdomen. The pear-shaped body on the other hand is seen in those who have the excess fat deposited in the thighs, and hips area, with a flat waist. 

Having an apple-shaped body is associated with a greater risk of developing the syndrome. Other risk factors are: 

A waistline that is more than 35 inches in women and more than 40 inches in men

  • High levels of blood pressure and blood sugar
  • Low levels of good cholesterol, HDL. In women, less than 50 mg/dL is a warning sign and in men less than 40 mg/dL
  • A genetic predisposition to the condition

What Is The Link Between Syndrome X And Diabetes?

In normal functioning, the digestive system breaks down the components of the food into simpler substances that can be absorbed by the cells of the body. In the same way, carbohydrates in the food are broken down into simple sugars that are then converted into an energy source by the hormone insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and when there is a rise in the blood sugar levels, the pancreas releases the hormone so as to lower the levels of glucose. 

When a person has metabolic syndrome, it leads to a condition known as insulin resistance. Thus, when the sugar levels of the blood rise, the pancreas produce insulin on receiving a signal but the cells are unable to utilise the insulin and thus the glucose levels rise further and the pancreas produce more insulin but the cycle continues. This ultimately leads to Type 2 Diabetes. Along with this, the syndrome puts you at risk of heart disease and targets lower kidney functions, thus causing kidney disease. Plaques build up in the arteries and could result in a heart attack.

Seek Natural Help For Metabolic Syndrome!

While the syndrome can be debilitating, it can be helped and managed by simple lifestyle changes before it progresses to something much more serious. Nutrition and fitness and diet can help but these too have to be seen with precision as they will not have the desired effect if done without medical supervision. Naturopath Domenic Pisanelli has helped many who have shown the symptoms of metabolic syndrome. These have been led on to the path of a better life, by simply enabling them to manage their symptoms well. 

The aim of naturopathy is to treat the body systems as a whole, addressing each system and seeing to it that the impact on it is minimal. Since the syndrome affects the heart, causes diabetes, weight gain, and so many other conditions, a holistic approach is needed that treats the body as one whole instead of simply the side effects. The factors making it tough to lose weight or any stressors that may be causing your levels to rise are all addressed as part of this holistic plan.

At My Vital Health Solutions, you can be assured that your metabolic syndrome will be helped by:

Feel well from within! No ‘miracles or get healthy overnight’ approach. Simply natural therapy.
