When weight loss is your goal, you often don't think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to the seven major metabolic hormones (cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin and estrogen), your body is programmed to adjust by raising your hormone levels higher and higher. Since these hormones regulate your metabolism, it will get slower and slower, making you fatter and fatter! The solution is to reprogram your hormonal levels by repairing hormone receptors and growing new ones.
In The Body Cure, Dr. Sara Gottfried uses cutting-edge research in a weight-loss and energy program that will reverse hormone resistance in just twenty-one days. As a result, you will boost your metabolism and calorie-burning by growing new and fresh thyroid receptors; increase your weight loss by re-balancing estrogen and progesterone receptors; and reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors, for better cortisol processing.
For the last twenty years, Harvard-MIT-educated physician Dr. Sara Gottfried has helped thousands of patients address the root hormonal causes of what bothers them most: excess weight, lack of energy, aging and illness. This program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight-loss and better health.
