Lighten up. Coming and going —it’s a winning combination. “Weight-loss benefits go well beyond simply looking better.”

hat have you got to lose? Dropping a few pounds makes you look and feel better — but getting down to a healthy body weight has dozens of other pluses, including some health benefits that researchers are just discovering. When you’re overweight, your entire system is out of balance, and this includes the hormones that impact your mood. As a result, losing weight can increase your overall well-being and decrease the severity of depression. Many overweight people suffer from severe depression, and depression can also increase the chances of being overweight as it reduces the individual’s ability or desire to help their overweight situation or to prevent it in the first place. PMS also can be helped by losing weight, as the loss of fat tissue can have a favorable effect upon hormonal balance.

related chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer. The health consequences range from increased risk of premature death, to serious chronic conditions that reduce the overall quality of life. Of especial concern is the increasing incidence of child obesity. By losing weight you can decrease your risks. You can’t beat that for weight-loss motivation. There are so many benefits you gain from losing weight. Losing is a WIN-WIN —lose pounds and gain health! Feel better, look better, and be healthy. Ultimately it takes genuine commitment and lifestyle changes regardless of what is happening in your life. If you are up for the challenge, we have medically supervised weight-loss programs to get you started. Call today! 770-474-7151

menopause when do you know?

Menopause is genetically predetermined and is a gradual process which naturally occurs between the age 40 and 58, though there are always exceptions to the common ages. The experience preceding and following menopause can be an immense change for women physically and emotionally. The symptoms can last from a few months up to 10 years. Menopause is actually defined when you have had your last cycle. This will not be able to be determined until you have been completely free from menstrual cycles for one year. Leading up to this time, many symptoms and changes can occur in your body. Most times this is troubling or causes anxiety because you are not certain it is part of the natural occurrence, the unknown is always the most alarming.

Have any of these symptoms?

Mood Swings

Hot Flashes

Sweating

Decreased libido

Headaches

If you feel you have any of the symptoms or suspect you are approaching menopause, your symptoms can be evaluated along with blood tests to determine what is happening and what stage of menopause you are in. Often, you may just be in peri-menopause and the blood tests are more difficult to evaluate due to the fluctuation of hormones. Either way, Dr. Schilling understands you want relief and reassurance for your individual symptoms.

Trouble sleeping

Heart palpitations

Vaginal dryness

Osteoporosis

Irregular cycles

Breast tenderness

Fatigue

This also gives you a chance to discuss your issues with Dr. Schilling and consider different treatment options that fit your lifestyle.
