Obesity-Related Diseases & How You Can Avoid Them

If you look at the people around you, you’ll notice that a lot of them are starting to get real fat. It’s because there’s a silent epidemic that’s slowly killing us all, and it’s called “obesity”.  Obesity is a condition identified with having excess body fat, and it can spawn a lot of nasty diseases, especially if you don’t lose weight or eat healthy. Here’s a look at a few obesity-related diseases, and how you can avoid them.

Ulcers & Gallstones

According to health experts and hypnotherapy Melbourne advocates, obesity is a main contributor to the onset of gastric ulcers. Gastric ulcers usually strike whenever there’s an imbalance or inequality between the enzyme pepsin and the level or amount of hydrochloric acid that’s secreted. Overweight males face higher risks of developing ulcers than females.

Gallstones are also caused by the excessive release of bile by the liver, which is stored in the gall bladder. Gallstones are more prevalent in older women, and in people who have a family history of gallstones. A weight loss of just 7 pounds can help reduce the risks of getting ulcers, while losing 4 to 9 pounds cut your chances of getting gallstones.

High Blood Pressure and Heart Disease

In the US, 70 million people suffer from high blood pressure, which is a primary contributor to heart disease. As we age or gain weight, our blood pressure will tend to rise.  Health experts contend that those who are overweight face higher risks of suffering from a heart attack before they reach 45 years old (or even before they reach 35).

However, if you exercise, eat a healthy diet and lose as little as 8 pounds, you can bring back your blood pressure to safer levels. If you regularly exercise as well as cut 10 to 15 pounds, you’ll also considerably cut your chances of getting a heart attack.

Obesity is a major contributor to the rise of diabetes, a condition in which the body is unable to create enough insulin, leading to elevated levels of glucose in the blood. The World Health Organization states that more than 90 percent of diabetes patients all over the world have type-2 diabetes. If you lose 15-20 pounds, you can reduce the risks of developing diabetes.

There are a lot of innovative ways for losing weight today. Apart from jogging, walking and yoga, hypnotherapy Melbourne experts and clinics encourage and evaluate individual responses to suggestions, and  induce a state of inner concentration and focused attention. Hypnosis can also help the person address issues like emotional eating, stress and depression, which often lead to the onset of obesity.
