新陈代谢这个词似乎是现代科学已经理解、有许多数据来支持的概念，但事实上，新陈代谢只是很久以前的一个发现，即人体是一种吸收食物并将其作为能量使用的生物活体。从那时到今天，医学依然尚未破解为什么人们会有体重问题的根本原因，新陈代谢变成为了一种对此的解释，让人觉得这是自己造成的问题。 有种说法说，缓慢的新陈代谢是导致一个人减肥困难的原因，实际上新陈代谢这种错误概念从一开始就铁板钉钉进入了医学院教学（就像许多其他的错误理论诸如自身免疫性疾病理论一般），似乎可以给患者提供其遭受痛苦的解释。该种理论如此根深蒂固，以至于让对此怀疑的人看上去像是傻瓜一般。实际上如果想一下，新陈代谢理论并不是那么科学：你无法以确定的方式测量新陈代谢，然而科学的重心不就是客观测量吗？如果是非常粗略的测试而无法准确估计一个人燃烧多少卡路里（因为事实上不可能真正测量某人的卡路里燃烧量），我们怎么能凭权威来说新陈代谢是体重问题背后的原因？ 如果解决体重问题的方案是卡路里消耗量大于卡路里摄入量，或者测量每分钟心跳，那么我们早就不会有体重问题了。这种建议每个人都听说过，如果这是真的，为什么许多人在尝试后依然有体重问题？或者很快体重问题又回来了。 因此，如果体重问题与平衡卡路里的消耗和摄入量无关，那到底背后的原因是什么？绝大多数时间，体重问题是肝脏和淋巴系统问题引起的，有一些情况下，与脑垂体、肾脏、肠组织甚至心脏有关。当一个人体内毒素超负荷、饮食中的脂肪或油脂含量过高、或面对EB病毒等病原体问题时，肝脏和淋巴系统等会变得过度疲劳，而无法正常排毒，当身体无法排出毒素时，毒素会停留在体内，堵塞身体各处。作为一种保护机制，身体会通过水分保持毒素的悬浮，产生的水肿就会转化为体重增加。当我们不了解事情真相时，最简单的借口就是新陈代谢缓慢。 通常，甲状腺问题被认为是慢性体重问题的根本原因。也许你被告知甲状腺功能低下是你无法减肥的原因，因为甲状腺功能低下导致无法产生足够的新陈代谢激素来控制体重，请不要让这种错误理论来混淆你。这是另一个误解，即新陈代谢的速度决定一个人的体重。不管怪罪于新陈代谢还是甲状腺，这些都不利于我们疗愈或者减重，因为这些问题背后原因都是EB病毒。 体重问题经常与甲状腺问题同时发生的原因是EB病毒可以同时引起这两种症状。因为EB病毒在体内会经历四个发展阶段，攻击甲状腺是第三个阶段，在此之前或者同时，EB病毒可以在身体其他部位引起上百种的症状，其中之一就是体重问题。关于更多EB病毒和甲状腺问题的信息，请见文末的链接。 当一个人继续服用甲状腺药物时，他们的体重问题不会消失。那是因为甲状腺激素不能调节体重。实际上，增加甲状腺药的量只会进一步加重肝脏的负担，因为肝脏需要吸收药物。绝大多数摄入甲状腺药物后减重的人是因为他们同时改变了饮食，加入了运动和/或其他疗法。不存在甲状腺激素刺激新陈代谢而实现减肥。 甲状腺在维持人体机体平衡中起着关键作用，而平衡则是维持体重平衡的关键。甲状腺和内分泌系统的其他部分即使在腺体受到损害时也依然在继续发挥这种作用。找回身体平衡的关键是排毒，而不是甲状腺。其实有简单易行、高度有效、且易于融入日常生活的饮食方法将体内的毒素排出，净化肝脏和淋巴。细节请见文末链接。 在排毒前后，我们的新陈代谢不会变化。不管我们的身体和情绪状况如何，我们的新陈代谢一直处于自动巡航模式。这是因为新陈代谢真正的意义仅仅是说我们是一直活着、在呼吸、不断变化的机体。 也许你看了以上的内容会很吃惊，许多人也许很难接受从小到大一直听说的新陈代谢实际上是一个重大错误。因为这是我们日常语言的一部分，尽管这个概念并不正确，但由于它是如此地被大众接受，没有人觉得它甚至可以受到质疑。但这帮助不了我们的健康，当我们将体重问题怪罪于新陈代谢而不再寻找真正的原因时，这会阻碍我们的前行和疗愈。当我们放下这个沉重的历史包袱，可以释放我们能量，帮助自己，也帮助别人。

The term metabolism is far outdated. While it may seem like a concept that’s well understood by modern science. With massive volumes of data to back it up, the truth is that metabolism refers only to the long ago discovery that the body is a living organism that assimilates food and uses it for energy. In the several hundred years since this revelation occurred. Medicine has not yet cracked the code about why people struggle with their weight. And still, the term is offered up as an answer and explanation – one more label that makes people feel like who they are at their core is to blame for their health issues.
It’s a myth that a slow metabolism is response for someone’s difficulty losing weight. This concept is like a vintage car that in its day was the height of beauty and sophistication, a car that got you around for years. Over time, though it got old. It became outdated. Someone parked it in the backyard, where it started to get rusty. The floorboards rotted, the engine seized up, it became a health hazard as it leaked oil and leached metals into the grass. Only no one could let it go. It was too familiar, held too much sentimental value.
The concept of metabolism has been grandfathered into modern medicine from a time when early medical schools were funded and contracted to teach theoryes like this one (like many of the wrong theories have been perpetuated for the same reason). Metabolism is a convenient idea to hold on to, because it seems to offer patients and explanation for their suffering. Theories like this take on a life of their own, - a life so large and dormant that it makes doubters seem like fools for questions them. If you stop to think about it, though the metabolism theory is not very scientific, and it has a pretty obvious role: you can’t measure metabolism in a definitive way. Isn’t science all about objective measurement? If all we have are crude tests that inaccurately estimate how many calories a person burns (it is impossible to truly measure someone’s calories burn), how can we say with any authority that metabolism is the driving force of mystery weight issues?
If solving mystery weight problems were really about eating fewer calories than you burn or measuring your heartbeats per minute, people’s problems would already be solved. That advice is so prevalent – everyone’s heard it and so clear-cut that everyone with a weight issue would have followed it and found relief by now. Instead, many people follow calorie-counting advice, don’t get results. Or find the weight comes right back, and get labeled as lazy or told they’re not doing it right.
So if weight problems aren’t just about balancing the calories you consume with the calories you expend, what are they about ?in some cases, it has to do with the pituitary gland, the kidney, the intestine issues, or even the heart. An overwhelming amount of the time, weight problems are about the liver and the lymphatic system. when someone is overloaded with toxins in their environment, a diet too high in fat or full or unproductive foods, or dealing with a viral issue such as EB virus, the liver and the lymphatic system become overburdened. They can’t detox like they’re meant to, and when your body can’t detox, then like unwanted houseguests, those toxins stick around, clogging up the works. As a protection mechanism, your body retains fluids to keep the toxins suspended, and the resulting edema translates to weight gain. Instead of investing and uncovering all this, the easy out that gets no one anywhere is to tell someone it’s a slow metabolism.
Often, thyroid problems are thought to be the underlying reason for chronic weight issues. Maybe you’ve been told that your hypothyroidism is to blame for that stubborn weight you can’t lose, because your underactive thyroid is failing to produce enough metabolism-boosting hormones to keep your weight in check don’t let this mistaken theory distract you. It’s simply another misconception based on the myth that the speed of the metabolism determines someone’s ability to control her or his weight. There is literally no such thing as slow metabolism – so saying that the thyroid is to blame for slow metabolism just makes the theory more wrong. It’s just one more scapegoat -what I call an escape goat – for undiscovered health issues like EBV.
The reason weight problems often coincide with thyroid problems is because EBV can cause both – separately. It’s not a game of dominos. With EBV knocking into the thyroid, which in turn throws weight off balance. Instead, it’s a game of ambush, with EBV advancing to multiple locations in the body, causing problems directly in multiple ways.
When people go on thyroid medication, their weight problems don’t go away. That’s because thyroid hormones don’t regulate weight. In fact, people often gain weight on thyroid medication, because the liver has to absorbed the excess thyroxine from the medication, burdening the organ further. The overwhelming majority of people who lose weight on thyroid medication do so because they’ve changed their diet , exercise, and/or supplementation regimen at the same time. the weight loss isn’t because of the thyroid hormones revving up the metabolism.
While the thyroid plays a starring role in maintaining the body’s homeostasis, and homeostasis is key to your body reaching a balanced weight. The thyroid and the rest of the endocrine system continue to play that role even when the gland is compromised. Finding homeostasis – coming back home in your body – is not about focusing on the thyroid. It’s all about detoxing. If you have EBV, it’s about getting the virus and its waste matter out of your system and cleansing the toxins and foods that fuel it using the techniques in part III. These techniques are also excellent for cleansing toxins and reorienting your diet to be more liver and lymphatic friendly even if you don’t have EBV. They’re not about retreating for a month to do a juice cleansing, its about finding ways to incorporate detoxing into your daily, active life. And they’re a world apart from those multivitamins you’ll see advertised to support the metabolism. Those ads should say. This pill will help you find sasquatch. For how much basis in reality their claims hold.
It’s important to note that before and after cleansing toxins, your metabolism remains the same. Whether your liver and lymphatic system are sluggish or in top working order, and whether our thyroid is underactive, overactive or functioning normally, your metabolism continues on autopilot. That’s because when we talk about metabolism, all we’re really saying is that we’re living, breathing human beings with moving body system. those who say otherwise, - those who say that metabolism explains someone’s hunger and weight – don’t understand the true causes of chronic symptoms and illness. And that’s okay. It’s no one’s fault but the old roadmaps of the past.
I understand metabolism may be difficult to accept as a great mistake. Because it’s such a part of our everyday language. That ordinaries, though it part of what makes it so detrimental – the concept is so accepted, no one feels it can even be questioned. With metabolism as part of everyone’s vocabulary, it’s that much more okay to blame someone for her symptoms, which makes it that much more okay for research to stop looking for real answers. When you see the metabolism theory for that it is, though, you make a difference in the world. You let go of this heavy baggage, and it frees you up to help someone else see that her weight struggles are not her fault.
