Fat Appreciation Time! (FAT)

Fat Cells

Fat CellsFat really has gotten a bad rap as my mind suddenly jumps to a bacon wrap. Food is so much better with the flavor of fat.  And fat is such an important aspect of our diets when choosing the right kind of fats and blaming it for excess weight failures is not appropriate.  It is time we appreciate the gift that it is, thus Fat Appreciation Time!

Did you know your body has nearly 30 billion fat cells? Clearly with a number these high-fat cells must not be a mistake.   Fat cells are normal to have in our body and definitely have a purpose such as keeping us healthy. They do a lot to protect our interior organs, kind of like padding. They are smart enough to store energy that you can use whenever you need it. They also know how to sense the temperature and help burn energy when you are cold. Probably one of the more significant things about fat cells is that they actually secrete hormones that tell your brain when you have plenty of energy reserves so your appetite will calm.   

Your fat cell number is determined before birth and research shows that the living conditions of the fetus such as the mother's diet or stress determine the number of fat cells you have for life.  This is when your epigenetic markers (lifestyle factors) come into play and why I wrote a special blog stating that your excess weight may not actually be your fault. Your weight imbalances may have a lot to do with how your Mom was managing life during your pregnancy.

There are a few different fat cells; brown, beige and white. The brown and beige fat cells help burn fat as energy for warmth when you need it.  These levels of energy decline with age and may be why aging leads to fat creep. White fat cells are stored as an oil drop within a cell. You don't want a lot of these.  

There are different types of fat cells; visceral fat vs. subcutaneous fat.  Visceral fat surrounds the internal organs within the liver, kidneys, and intestines. They can have many inflammatory macrophage cells and lead to many health issues such as Type 2 diabetes, colon cancer, and cardiovascular disease. This type of fat is very active through metabolism and there are many strategies to lose it. For more information on assisting with fat reduction, I recommend you check out my webinar on Natural and Permanent Weight Reduction Solutions. Subcutaneous fat is right under the skin and it is very hard to lose and very easy to gain. Vigorous exercise is the only reliable way to keep it in check.  

Fat cells send and receive a lot of metabolic communication (hormones) as well. They literally have receptor sites for communicators such as insulin, thyroid stimulating hormone, estrogen, glucagon,  vitamin D and a whole host of other hormones that determine hunger, appetite and whether or not you are satisfied.

Fat cells also have an immune system all their own. There are guardian immune cells that live in the fat and kill infectious cells that are too numerous to reduce inflammation in the body.  When obesity is present, inflammation will be elevated. The fat cells collaborate with the immune cells to help with this imbalance.

The reduction of inflammation in the body is the key to obesity.  When fat cells make anti-inflammatory chemicals versus fat cells that make inflammatory chemicals a body will have lean weight vs. obesity.   When working through excess weight concerns, one should ask, “Is there anything or anyone I am trying to protect myself from either now or in the past when the excess weight started being noticeable?”   This could play out in a number of possibilities such as stress, trauma, physical or even sexual abuse. And it may stem from one feeling unsafe whether from abuse, wartime, etc. Those traumas or unresolved “inflammatory” times of conflict are clues to excess weight as well.  Fat serves a purpose even when the reason is to protect one from feeling unsafe. It serves a very important role in our world.

If you would like to learn whether or not stubborn fat you are trying to reduce is caused by other health concerns or you just need guidance, take our WICO test and learn more about how we assess this for you.  You may also find other articles on weight reduction valuable such as Is Your Excess Weight Really Your Fault?  Or search our site for the word FAT.

Testimonials for Lynn

Blog | Testimonial about Lynn | Testimonials

"My daughter has dyslexia, so reading is a challenge for her. I asked Lynn to work on her for dyslexia at the beginning of the school year in hopes that it would make reading (and teaching reading) a bit easier. Since then I have noticed several major shifts in her reading. 
  • She used to only want to read books that had nice big letters, and only a few words on each page.  Now she doesn’t shy away from the smaller letters and will read books that have several paragraphs on each page.
  • She will read a story out loud without asking me to read every other page now.
  • She has taken the initiative to read the Bible on her own. She has read several chapters from Genesis – and the Bible that she is reading from has such teensy letters that I have to squint to read those words.
 Thanks for your help, Lynn!"

"I have been seeing Lynn for a few months now and have had great results! The very first visit there was an amazing change in my breathing! I was having a constant tightness in my chest thinking it was asthma or that being overweight was affecting it. Lynn informed me that it was emotional baggage from previous years. She worked on this issue using the Body Talk techniques and to my amazement, I haven't had a problem breathing since!

Body Talk has also been very helpful on a physical level. I was having a lot of neck and upper back pain when I first started seeing Lynn and that has basically been healed. I no longer have the tension in these areas. One day I was having terrible low back pain and didn't think I would be able to continue my workday. Thankfullly, Lynn happened to be where I work and took a few minutes to work my back. I was able to continue my day with little pain to the area!

I am very grateful to have found Lynn and would recommend her services to everyone I know! She is a true professional and an asset to a much needed healing practice."

“I completely trust Lynn’s skills regarding the Body Talk modality. I have experienced healing, a sense of well being, less fatigue and more energy after each session. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is especially gifted with a pleasing personality. Most of all she expects to provide results. You will appreciate the encounter.”

"Body Talk is better than going to the doctor. It's amazing how this practice can help rewire ourselves to not only improve our health, but also improve our relationships. For me personally, it's helped my relationship with my sister. When I used to pick fights with her, now it seems like my reactions and way of talking to her have completely improved. Phobias that I've had have also been cleared. I didn't want to touch people or for people to touch me. With Body Talk this phobia has disappeared. Also, body talk has helped me to get over a relationship that kept coming back to mind often. I was able to put that person in my past where those thoughts no longer control me. These examples are the relationship benefits I have been able to experience and don't include the health aspect. I truly believe that stress and other factors have a direct effect on our lives to create cancer, tumors and more. Body talk is able to release those knots that exist, so that the energy can flow like it's supposed to and avoid these diseases. In a nutshell, I recommend Lynn Morales for your Body Talk sessions for greater health and wellbeing!!

“I had very high blood pressure, cholesterol and am a diabetic. Doctors tried several different medications to lower them but they didn’t work. I was tired of many years of medications not working so I went to Lynn. I was very skeptical at first but Lynn helped me after a few sessions of BodyTalk and it worked. I started feeling better and regaining my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes are good. I highly recommend Lynn for her work and thank her.”

"My children and I have been BodyTalk clients of Lynn Morales for the past two years. She has always dealt with us in a professional and caring manor. Our journey of healing has been an incredible experience. I used to get stressed and uptight very easily. Just getting the kids to school often had me feeling frazzled. I no longer get stressed over small issues and am in general a lot calmer than I used to be. The tension that I used to get in my shoulders is a lot less. Both my son and daughter constantly went from one sinus infection to the next. This mainly would end up as ear infections and bronchitis. Since BodyTalk they have not been on any antibiotics in two years. They still do get allergies but it clears up quickly and it never develops to secondary infection. I had a pro-lapsed uterus and my OB Gyn wanted me to take strong medication daily to prevent it from getting worse. Through BodyTalk my uterus is now completely healed and I have no side effects. My OB Gyn confirmed that there is nothing wrong with my uterus. A huge relief for me is that I did not need to take any medication that could have been detrimental to me in other ways."

"Working with Lynn has changed my life. Emotional issues from the past as well as physical limitations have been cleared up and healed. I am experiencing new energy and a renewed enthusiasm for life. After dragging around for the past few years, tired and irritable, I can truly say that the work Lynn has done with me has helped more than any other healing modality I have experienced. Lynn’s wide and varied expertise is able to confront varying issues on many levels. I am proud to say I have found her and continue to refer friends and family who also find great relief and benefit. Thank you, Lynn!!"

I’m very excited! The session yesterday has already helped me with leading/managing the working group. I feel much better about the project! This morning, I was able to clearly think about/articulate what I wanted to put on the agenda and how to structure the meeting. I presented it to my boss and he liked the approach, and the couple suggestions/pointers he gave were helpful.

M.H.


"Lynn's work has totally turned my life around. As a result of my sessions with her, I have gone from driving a 12 year old car my mechanic told me to get rid of to driving a car I never dreamed I could own much less pay for with cash. My money troubles are completely over. "
