The Power of Hormones

Hormones, diet and the right kind of exercise are all critical components in how the body looks and feels. BioSignature Modulation allows us to look at specific hormones and how they can affect weight loss and the overall condition of the body. For example, the thickness of one's umbilical skin fold ?belly button? is a reflection of one's cortisol output. It is a direct reflection of one's stress levels and their ability to handle it. BioSignature Modulation allows us to recommend specific supplements, exercise and dietary changes that can specifically target fat loss in the belly region. Some females have a tendency to store a majority of their fat in the hips and thighs while others may store fat in the arms and torso. Specific hormones dictate where and why the body stores fat. BioSignature Modulation allows us to naturally fix the hormones that are out of balance allowing for quick and effective fat loss in the targeted areas.
