The adrenal glands produce a belly fat burning hormone called 7-Keto DHEA and a belly fat storing hormone called cortisol.
There is a specific type of malfunction that can occur in the adrenal glands that can cause them to under-produce the fat belly fat burning hormone 7 Keto DHEA and over produce the belly fat storing hormone cortisol.
This hormonal imbalance between cortisol and 7 Keto DHEA will cause a person to start gaining weight by producing excess Belly Fat.
This excess belly fat can be linked to a number of diseases depending the actual inches of fat gained. Some of those diseases are heart disease, heart attack, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
One of the main reasons this adrenal hormonal imbalance develops is due to excess inflammation in the body.
The adrenal glands produce cortisol to stop inflammation. The more inflammation the body has the higher the cortisol gets.
Unfortunately, the higher the cortisol gets the lower the belly fat burning hormone 7 Keto DHEA gets.
Top 15 Sources of Inflammation that Damage the Adrenals and Elevate Cortisol:
Imbalances in intestinal bacteria
SIBO-Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
Heavy Metals-lead, mercury, arsenic etc.
Environmental toxins–parabens, phthalates, bromine etc.
Excessive sugar or carbohydrates
Reduction in the production of intestinal enzymes
Reduction in the production of stomach acid
Genetic Abnormalities in Cellular Enzyme Production

I was definitely a HUGE skeptic, BUT I felt so bad I thought what can I lose but some money. I was overweight, tired, foggy brain, inability to sleep and hot flashes. I started right before Thanksgiving and even throughout the holidays and extensive travel, I have lost 23 pounds. More than the weight loss I feel so much better. I have energy, can sleep and my body feels great. Word to the wise, this isn’t magic, they change your diet significantly, but you can do it. The supplements helped significantly and I never felt hungry. It is a little expensive but for anyone considering this, think about the money you will save from not eating as much or going out to dinner etc. I am thankful my skepticism didn’t stop me from trying this because it has been amazing for me. A special shout out to Pam and Dr. Bobby Curtis, who is super personable, makes me feel comfortable and is realistic with helping me reach my goals.
Before I got started I was tired and wasn't getting enough sleep. Energy level was always low. I started in August and with great discipline I lost 32lbs. I know the weight lost wasn't much but it's the way I feel after getting more into holistic health care. When I'm at work, or working out, I have a lot more energy, and sleep better at night. Everyone at Alterna Care are concerned with your health and how well your doing. Dr.Bobby Curtis told me the things I needed to do to improve and make the changes.
I am recommending AlternaCare to all my friends and family. At first I was very skeptic, didn't think it would work. But it really works, in 4 month I am almost 30lbs down. I love it and I will stick with them for a long time.

The benefits are a decrease from 8.9 A1c to 6.3, lost 8lbs and lots inches, blood pressure is completely regulated, cholesterol decreased by 50 points, lots of energy with the teenage blood pressure readings. I give God the glory for leading me to AlternaCare,I love my team!!

I have faith and I am following the protocols and it is working.When I started this journey, I was at the I don't want to phase. Then I progressed to I want to. Then I said I can do it. Since going to AlternaCare, I started at the I will phase. After the 2 month process, I can now say that I I Am!!!You have to have the will, want and desire to change. You can do this!!Thank you God and AlternaCare
