Obesity is becoming more and more a problem, affecting a bigger part of the population and younger people.
Food intake is mostly seen as the cause with the saying” every pound goes through the mouth”. But this explanation is much too simple. Obese people can follow a strict diet and still not loose any weight, whereas others can eat loads of food and still stay lean.
One factor is the industrialized food with much fat, salt and sugar. A well known example is McDonald company, that even warned their own employees not to eat their “unhealthy” food.
It is obvious that there is an imbalance in the food desire, hormonal and nervous system. The thyroid function can be out of balance. The organism is making the body obese, as if there is a need for it.
Obesity can be seen as a defense against attacks, physical and emotional. It can be a protection for vulnerable people. It is as if a wall is build around the person.
A special connotation in that respect is the defense against sexual attacks. By becoming obese women become less attractive and thus less prone to sexual intimidation, attacks., assaults and rape.
Disease has often to always an aspect of intoxication. Disease affects the metabolism, each disease in its own special way. This leads to the accumulation of toxins that cannot be broken down or discharged. A solution can be to store the toxins in fat tissue, which makes them harmless.
This makes it understandable that type of the “cheerful obese”. IT makes understandable that dieting is so difficult, going together with disease and depression due to the toxins that are released from the fat tissue.
One sign of a good homeopathic remedy is that the patient loses weight, and that without much difficulty or hard work. It, the fat, goes away by itself. The body can find a new balance with a lower weight.
