in an age where there is a growing disconnect between the shapes and sizes of the majority of everyday people in real life and those of men and women whose physics are advertised as some sort of ideal.
I'm television online and in print media the issue of body dysmorphic is becoming more and more common it's a rare individual who doesn't have something about their body they wish were different but body dysmorphic is more than that,
it involves chronic unrelenting self ridicule.
That may take over someone's thoughts to the extent that interferes with work socialization.
[4:28] And mental and physical health body dysmorphic more formally called body dysmorphic disorder.
Is more than fretting over some post pregnancy stretch marks a few gray hairs or a couple of pounds of cracked up around the mid section over the years.
[4:45] Body dysmorphic disorder is characterized by a self perception that is detached from reality.
Individuals may imagine flaws that are non existent or they may view very mild and extremely common faults in their parents.
[5:01] Things other people don't even notice as so disfiguring an ass statically on pleasing that they take over the person starts and interfere with everyday life.
Individuals with body dysmorphic disorder see things that aren't there they become obsessed with perceived shortcomings about their physical body,
either completely imagining things or taking things that are there blemishes perhaps or scars cellulite or excess body fat.
And blowing them out of all rational proportion,
the tv may become so severe that the mayo clinic classifies it as quote.
[5:44] A type of chronic mental illness in the dvd is recognized as a unique diagnose a condition in the dsm for.
[5:54] Negative thoughts about ones appearance can become so pervasive and all encompassing that they actually lead to more severe conditions such as anxiety.

psychiatric disorders such as anxiety or depression psychiatric co morbidity is our common and it may not be possible to tease out which are the causes and which are the effects.
[7:25] For example social anxiety disorder and the dr calm and cool morbidity so it seems logical that the could cause social anxiety disorder,
but one study suggests that bd is a subset of.
Social anxiety disorder in a very small study at a veterans affairs primary care behavioral health clinic bd was found to be associated with a substantially elevated rate of suicide attempts major depression.
And obsessive compulsive disorder.
This trend also applies be on veterans to the general population where there is a noted high rate of co morbidity between the dvd.
Depression and suicide obsessive compulsive disorder is a common commodity with pd but the two conditions have significant distinctions and,
an individual may experience remission in one but not the other chiropractors and other health care professionals are in a unique position to help identify this problem in their patients,
obviously most family doctors these days encounter patients to do you have genuine physical signs of metabolic disturbance such as abdominal,
obesity skin tags a can of those is not grounds and more but they may also come across men and women who exhibits some of the signs and symptoms of be,
add and these practitioners may be the only people in the patient's lives who recognize the issue and are willing to broach the subject,
it's difficult to specify the signs to look for one red flag maybe a patient who is at a healthy weight.
[8:58] Or possibly even under weight yet is seeking advice for a cheating an even lower body weight other things for practitioners to look out for include signs and symptoms of over exercising particularly when combined with under eating.

Things go in and out of style we have the rush of new years resolutions with people to the gems along the new year,
but i really want to avail people to the knowledge that.
[11:03] This has to become part of your lifestyle losing weight and keeping it off long term has to assimilate.
As to part of your regular routine so here six keys to healthy weight loss number one detox first many of the toxins in our bodies are stored in body fat,
research shows that when we lose fat these toxins are released back into circulation and may cause negative symptoms health problems and,
may make it more difficult to lose weight there for a natural clans are detoxification program is essential for healthy weight loss so again,
don't just do any random detox work with a dr like myself who knows what they're doing who can test and evaluate and assess your need for your level of detox when done properly most people will experience increased energy levels,
reduce cravings for sweets and other junk foods and an overall feeling of enhanced wellness.
Number two eliminate problem foods certain foods cause hormonal imbalances that drive over heating food cravings and inflammation,
making it almost impossible to loos fat.
Eliminating these foods can make all the difference in your ability to successfully lose fat and keep it off refined carbohydrates and sugar are some of the biggest problem foods while gluten and dairy are also major offenders.
If you eliminate these foods during the detox phase it is best to continue to keep them out of your diet.
You'll feel better you'll have more energy and you'll lose fat more easily number three never miss breakfast.
[12:36] Research shows that eating processed foods or processed or sugary foods for breakfast like muffins bagels pancakes or even most breakfast cereals.
Where can i meet you to over eat later on in the day.
This me also wreak havoc on your blood sugar and sap your energy levels causing you to crave sweets and making it almost impossible to stay on a weight loss program,
thus it is vital to eat a quality breakfast every day and make sure it is high in protein and low in refined carbohydrates,
also be sure to avoid processed foods and cereals number for it real food three to five times daily.
Process to zach like sugar in the body often providing access calories that are quickly absorbs and more likely to be stored as fat.
So eat minimally processed real food and follow these guidelines have small frequent meals the stabilize your blood sugar and really help out the adrenal glands.
[13:31] Consume protein with each meal.
[13:34] Quality carbohydrates complex carbohydrates brown rice for example not necessarily low carbohydrate foods consume quality oils not low fat case of these good oils are like your coconut oil you are,
organic olive oil my wife and i love to use avocado oil for our salad dressings and are cooking try a full paleo style diet consisting mainly of fish.
Grass-fed pasture raised meats eggs vegetables fruit from guy roots and not,
what's this diet excludes the most common problem foods such as grains legumes dairy products potatoes refined salt refined sugar and processed oils and if you have any questions about your food sensitivities this is something we can address.
As a patient at the michigan family wellness clinic we can you lots of muscle testing and laboratory testing to figure out exactly what food sensitivities you have and what foods you need to avoid number five use natural products to support,
quality nutrition intake.
Here's the thing guys we can't get all the nutrients that our body needs from our food even if we eat organic non gmo our soil is so deficient in minerals quality case and number five year,
protein shakes are a great way to easily get quality nutrition quickly without a lot of calories have a protein shake to fill in at breakfast.
When are you don't have time to eat right or after exercise to support muscle building and maintenance other supplements can help kickstart your metabolism and helps you burn fat when it comes to protein shakes you really wanna use the highest quality most of.
[15:08] Bio available protein on the market because.

quality most bio available protein on the market.
To not only increase your results from your exercise but also increase your immune system,
number six exercise to boost your metabolism physical activity is essential if you want to lose weight and keep it off i have patients ask me this all the time there is no magic supplement there is no one can see out there if,
i can help your body sleep well get a good night's rest or even take a nap during the day okay so that's number one sleep and number two if you can have.
[16:01] Good movement patterns if you can move your body and exercise those two things alone if that's all you do.

resistant to fat loss and physical activity makes you look better and feel better too especially in our contacts today talking about body dysmorphic,
disorder walking help strengthen and tone the major muscle groups resistance exercise increases muscle and muscle burns calories so adding some resistance training to your program is recommended interval training is often considered to be the most affect,
exercise for overall health fitness and fat loss.
