Inability to lose weight is often more than the simple calories in (food choices), and calories out (level and type of movement) model. These factors must be accounted for, but there are plenty of people exercising on a regular basis and making good food choices who are not successful with maintaining an appropriate weight. Different people respond to different ratios of fats/carbs/proteins and respond differently to different eating schedules (extended or reduced time between meals). Intestinal integrity, liver and bile function, unresolved infections or other inflammation conditions, and imbalances of hormones (such as low thyroid, progesterone, and/or elevated cortisol, estrogen) play significant roles in maintaining fat storage. As with most chronic conditions, it is not one action that brings weight into balance, it is brought into balance by promoting/repairing overall body function. Take the time and make the effort to support your body’s return to proper function and not only will you feel better, more energetic and clear mind, your weight will return to its ideal range.

Any intestinal inflammation will also add to this d...Arthritis/joint and muscle pain.
Diagnoses such as IBS, SIBO, Leaky Gut, and Ulcerative Colitis describe symptoms of digestive dysfunction, they do not identify why there are symptoms, what is causing the inflammation. The inflammation is how your body is trying to repair, attempting to return to normal function. Functional digestion results in minimal gas, no bloating or other intestinal inflammation, no burping, heartburn or ac...Digestive and Intestinal issues.
A normal menstrual cycle should be fairly symptom free other than the menstrual flow, and the awareness that your body is doing something in your lower abdomen.
