This Indicator Is More Important Than BMI To Health

According to Dr. Mercola, in his article entitled, “The One Number That May Best Predict Your Risk Of Sudden Death” 

“There is scientific evidence that BMI(body mass index) is a very flawed measurement when it comes to predicting your risk of dying from heart disease. Waist size provides a far more accurate benchmark for predicting your risk of death from a heart attack and from other causes. Determining your waist size is easy. With a tape measure, measure the distance around the smallest area of your abdomen, below your rib cage and above your belly button. The following is a general guide for healthy waist circumference:

  • Men: 37 to 40 inches is overweight; greater than 40 inches is obese
  • Women: 31.5 to 34.6 inches is overweight; greater than 34.6 inches is obese

The reason why this is a better indicator of heart disease risk is because your waist size is  related to the type of fat that is stored around your waistline, called “visceral fat” or “belly fat.” This type of fat is strongly linked to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and other chronic diseases. It is thought that visceral fat is related to the release of proteins and hormones that cause inflammation, which can in turn damage your arteries and affect how you metabolize sugars and fats. An expanded waistline is associated with insulin resistance, high blood pressure, lipid imbalance, cardiovascular disease, thickening of the walls of your heart, and even increased risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease decades later.”

Did you know that Healing Waters offersLipoEx which helps reduce “visceral fat” or “belly fat”?  In fact, in a recent document that I received from the Gail Altschuler, MD of Novata, Califormia she states that this machine is the first of its kind to “demonstrate with CT scans the reduction of both visceral and subcutaneous fat.  The studies showed reduction of fat or approximately 0.8 – 1 quart per session.”   Dr. Altschuler goes on to say that LipoEx is a “revolutionary system effectively and painlessly eliminating body fat.”

This means that LipoEx is a perfect choice to not only improve your looks but your overall health.  Have you made a resolution to get healthy?  Have you made a commitment to lose weight?  As you work to eliminate your risk of diabetes, inflammation, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, or Alzheimer’s disease, maybe you should consider LipoEx.

From May 1 through 13th, 2014, we are running a BuyOne Get One Free Special! Purchase one LipoEx session at regular price and receive one LipoEx session of equal or lesser value for FREE. This deal will not last long.  Why not treat mom or the woman in your life to his great deal?
