Healing Stories: A 240 Pound Weight Loss?

Imagine this. You’re 240 pounds overweight… and suffering. Mentally. Physically. And maybe even spiritually.

You know you have to do something about your situation but where do you begin? Go to the gym? Are you kidding me? Looking like this?

You know the long-term consequences are terrible. Every disease known to man increases for the person carrying this much weight.

And then the day comes that you face your greatest fears. In a wheelchair you’re pushed into a gym. Will the transformation begin today? Can you really do this?

Number one best-selling author, counselor, life coach and radio host, David Essel, has had the opportunity to interview thousands of people over the past 27 years… And one of the most impactful and empowering individuals David has ever interviewed is Evelyn Keiling

Evelyn is a warrior. A spiritual warrior. A physical warrior. A mental warrior. And an inspiration for millions of people around the world.

David loves Evelyn and the story she brings. Her perseverance. Her persistence.

And what about you? Whatever our mountain is to carry, whatever our goal is to achieve, are we willing to be like Evelyn Keiling and do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to make it happen?

Here it is in David’s words.

“I was introduced to Evelyn a number of years ago when I heard her story about losing 240 pounds! That’s two people she lost! I had to have her on my national radio show. And the interview was more powerful than I could ever believe.

She began by answering the question “do you think you’re weight gain is based on genetics?” She laughed and said no. My weight gain was based on me. As it is for most people who are overweight, genetics plays a very tiny part of the percentage of people who are overweight and or obese.

Evelyn made up her mind one day that she was going to change. And she did the hard work. Radically changing her diet, going on a nutritional cleanse, and beginning her exercise program. Not once during the interview did she ever say that the beginning years were easy. But she did say it was worth it.

While she was doing her nutritional cleanse she found out what it meant to eat a clean healthy diet. Lean protein. Vegetables. Fruit. Complex carbohydrates. She researched everything imaginable in the world and began going into the gym. Can you imagine walking into the gym 240 pounds overweight? Or let me correct myself, being wheeled in a wheelchair into the gym 240 pounds overweight?

This is why I call my friend Evelyn Keiling a major warrior. Nothing would get in her way to accomplish the goals that she had in mind. Here’s some more fascinating statistics about Evelyn. She did this in her late 40s early 50s. Not only that, she went a step further and in her 50s became a bodybuilder!

And along the way here’s an important part of Evelyn story. She didn’t do it alone. She had a support team. She hired individuals to motivate her, inspire her, and teach her the new way of living that she had to adapt and adopt immediately if she wanted to live.

And the story gets better. What?  The story can get better? Hell yes. She ends up walking on stage in a body transformation competition in Las Vegas in front of 15,000 screaming fans. Everything came to this point and the reward was amazing.

But wait! The story doesn’t stop here! What she learned in her body transformation was going to be needed last year when she was diagnosed with cancer. She used the same warrior mentality to face head on a disease that is brutal. And she’s winning.

I love Evelyn Keiling because of what she represents to all of us. She is our hope. She is a role model. I want you to take your goals as serious as Evelyn does, for you to walk away at the top of the mountain.”

In his 27 years as a counselor and a life coach, David Essel has been involved with many people like Evelyn Keiling. Individuals who at first didn’t think their massive goal of recovery, or weight loss, or saving a marriage after an affair, or tripling their income, or becoming an entrepreneur later in life could ever be achieved. But he’s walked hand-in-hand with all these people up the mountain to massive success.

You can do this too, even if you don’t believe it today. But you’ll need a counselor, coach, personal trainer, minister, financial expert… You’ll need a team around you in order to achieve massive goals. You’ll need to invest more time, effort and money… And it will be so worth it!

Never give up on yourself. Go now. http://davidessel.com/weight-loss/

IS DEPRESSION CAUSED BY GENETICS? HOLD ON!

Many people, mistakenly believe that depression is caused by genetics. And I understand why. Logically it would seem to make sense, that if your aunt, mother, father and sister suffer from depression we would immediately jump to the conclusion that depression must run in the family and be caused by genetics.

But that is so far from the truth! Our genetics actually is the cause of only a tiny percentage of depression in our country. The main causes of depression have to do with our inability to deal with emotions, or a lack of coping skills in life.

More often than not depression will be caused by emotional or physical abuse when were children or as adults, a feeling that we have lost control of life…love of a love relationship, it could be from the side effects of medication, codependency, our desire to run away from conflict or rocking the boat, death of a loved one, loss of a job, house or even the loss of good friends…

Crucially important in the role of depression is alcohol, smoking, food addiction, drug addiction, these are all outward signs that we are unhappy, possible depressed as we try to self medicate. And many illnesses or injuries can cause depression

When we learn correct coping skills though, we can do so many great things in minimizing the negative affects of depression.

My dad, sister and brother suffered from depression. My aunt did too. I suffered for years with a deep clinical depression. Yet my family and I healed. If, depression in our family, like most other families was genetically based we would never heal…or we would have to be on medication for life.

I have worked with thousands of clients over the last 36 years who struggled with depression and healed. Yes, a tiny percentage of people with depression may be genetically based…but the largest cause would be examples listed above. The major problem that occurs when we so quickly tell people that their depression is genetic, is that they give up looking for ways to heal themselves. And why should they since they’ve been told it’s in their genes?

Enough of the old school thought process that is outdated and dangerous for many people to be told.

There is great help available!

If you need help on these coping skills, email us at talkdavid@aol.com and I would love to spend 15 minutes on the phone with you at no charge whatsoever, helping you to get to the root cause of depression and helping to heal that very condition.

Love, David

A Powerful Story About Health and Healing…

Give yourself the gift of health this holiday season!

So many women and men across the world suffer from hormonal imbalances that lead to low energy, increased body fat and zero sex drive.

Here is an amazing story of one woman’s recovery of her energy, health and more!

before and after

Before and After

“This is my journey. It really begins at the age of 40. Gold bikini, gold body paint, gold boots. Let’s just say, it was a golden era coming to an end. I won the contest. Competition was stiff with girls half my age at the James Bond party at Staniel Key Yacht Club in Exumas, Bahamas. I had won this contest 2 years earlier in a white bikini, white boots at 38. I worked out almost every day and wanted to. I would swim great distances, bike, jump rope counting to 1000, play singles tennis for an hour and ski black diamonds. My energy knew no bounds. My age has never stopped me from anything and never defined who I was. Well, that was then…

Flash forward 1 year later. I was virtually unrecognizable. My face and body bloated. My workouts no longer gave me muscles and quite frankly no longer did I want to work out. I have been passionate about exercise since my teens. I did not have the same desire or the energy. My hair falling out, my skin dry and dull and aging way too fast. I was only 41. Is this what I have to look forward to? Yup, and it goes downhill from there.

For me, it was not just about looking good in a bikini. I just wanted to get out of bed in the morning and not feel as if I had just run a marathon all night long. I spent years getting 1 full night of sleep for every 7 nights if I was lucky. I could not find a concealer that could even remotely hide the dark and deep circles under my eyes.

As each year passed, my symptoms got worse. While I was able to lose weight over the years, it was a huge struggle and one that I had to almost starve myself to achieve. I gained a belly. I went from a stomach where people would ask me what I did to get the muscles so defined to a stomach that no matter what I did, it remained. Since my body could no longer tone, cellulite became more pronounced. I even saw a little on my arms. Can you imagine cellulite is now what you see on your arms instead of a nice bicep???!!!!!!

In August of 2015, at the age of 47, I said “Enough is enough.!!!!” I cannot control what has happened to my body, my spirit, my mind and what will continue to happen to my body, my spirit, my mind if I do not do something. I refused to live like this any longer!

I researched my symptoms but already knew before I even looked, that I had far too much estrogen, way too little progesterone, virtually no testosterone and a thyroid barely functioning.

I made an appointment with a hormone specialist. This was primarily about hormones and I wanted a Doctor who specialized in this field. I decided on Body Logic MD after much research. They had a great track record, and were local. Can I come today???? I was soooo anxious to have these strange, unwelcome changes validated (meaning, I was not crazy) and assured that these can go away or at least get better.

I had to wait until October. You see, it’s all very scientific. I had to wait until the paperwork for the blood tests was sent and wait for the box full of vials to collect my urine and then wait……for another month to time it with my monthly cycle. Even at 48, my cycle comes like clockwork, almost to the exact day each month. In the chaos of everything else wrong in my body, fortunately it did not affect my period. Ladies, never wish for your period to stop! When it stops, you stop. If are not doing anything to replace the lost hormones, you will rapidly age.

I must digress a moment to also mention I completed a background on my health to include my supplements/vitamins/prescriptions, surgeries, activity level, sleep activity, stress activity, sexual activity, overall feelings, etc….It took me 2 hours.

I was counting down the days till my appointment. Finally the day arrived. I meet Dr. Negrin. I immediately feel at ease. Here is someone who not only gets what is happening to me but has the answers to help me.

For the next hour, Dr. Negrin is all mine and I am all hers. I tell her upfront what I believe to be wrong with me and why. Of course, she has already reviewed my file, my background, and my labs and knows exactly what is wrong with me. She smiles and says “You know your body!”

What I was not prepared for were the additional issues. I was correct, I had too much estrogen but….estrogen of the kind that causes cancer and I had a boatload of it. Next, I had almost no progesterone. I called that one. This hormone is what helps balance out the estrogen. This became our biggest obstacle and priority

over everything has that was wrong with me. The “BIG C” was not something I expected to hear. Cancer, me???? Fortunately, Dr. Negrin was aggressive and after my next appointment approx 3 months later, this was now in a normal range and has remained so. I am one of the lucky ones!

Next, we talk about a hormone called Pregnenolone. What on earth is that? This apparently is referred to as the “Mother hormone” and I depleted that because it was so busy trying to fix everything else.

Testosterone. Yes, ladies (and gents) women NEED Testosterone. It is what gives us energy, muscle and drives our sexuality. Yes, we are talking SEX!!!!! And I cannot capitalize, emphasize, predicate, and shout it enough. I like sex. Always have. But somewhere down the line, my drive to have it became less. Still enjoyed it but I wanted to be the one to initiate it. Know what I mean?!!!!! My testosterone reading was a 7 when it should have been at least a 30 for a woman my age. We are still tweaking this and I recently went from the cream to a pellet surgically inserted into a butt cheek. I already feel the difference in my energy and my muscle definition. Sex, well its coming…. 🙂

I was anxious to hear about my thyroid. I had suspected an issue with my thyroid for quite a few years. It was actually worse than I suspected. Not entirely dead, but basically. We have had to increase the dosage on this each time and I now believe I am on the correct dosage. I have nails. I have entire eyebrows. I am not always cold. I sleep through the night. I lost weight. In one year, 20 lbs. My belly has muscles again!!!

The other issues I found out concerned trace minerals and vitamins that were dangerously low. I had no iron, no zinc, and no magnesium. Dr. Negrin then proceeded tell me that the acid reflux pills that I had been on for approx. 4 years, had not only killed the acid, it killed everything else. I recall her saying, “How do you get out of bed?” “How are you taking kick boxing and doing Karate and playing tennis?” “How do you not get sick with colds, sore throats, etc?” I replied “It takes every part of my being and my drive to be this active.” She then asked me to “wean” myself off of the pills. I went home and found the nearest trash can and have not taken an acid reflux pill since. That pill was replaced with a

natural probiotic. It worked!!!! It did take 6 months for my labs to show a normal reading for these minerals but I had so depleted my body, it did not know how to absorb or process these good things.

So, here we are, it’s approximately 1 year later, my life has changed. I would be remiss if I did not mention I started doing Karate a few months before I started hormone replacement and this has greatly helped with my memory (and my patience). I started kickboxing in December of last year which has also helped greatly improve my physique. I do both Karate and Kick boxing at Champion Karate in Lake Mary and highly recommend this studio.

I do kickboxing almost every day and even teach the occasional kick box class. I want to! My body has completely changed. I have indentions on the side of my buttocks. I have muscle definition throughout my body. It is a very intense workout. It has also helped with my weight loss. BUT, and I do mean BUT, without the hormone replacement, my results would be significantly less. How do you gain muscle if you have no testosterone? How do you lose weight if you have no testosterone and a non-working thyroid? You don’t.

I have great skin, great hair, great nails, and great eyebrows. My friends ask me what I am doing. This is not a secret. I tell them. I encourage them.

I am most thrilled with the energy I have. I just ran the Savage Race in mid-October. That’s almost an 11 kilometer, 27 obstacle course. I ran it. I completed 23 of the 27 obstacles. Even wanting and desiring to do this before I started hormone replacement, I would not have. I could not have. There just would not have been enough energy or the strength.

I sleep EVERY night and the whole night. It’s rare that I get up and cannot fall back asleep. My mind is clearer. I remember more.

I decided to do this article because I wanted women to know they do not have to live life in a fog. It’s not a secret. I want every woman to feel like I do. To truly be the best that they can be with a body and a mind they can now control. Of course, diet and exercise play a part and Dr. Negrin encourages both. I cannot say enough about Body Logic MD and Dr. Jennifer Negrin.

In short, growing old gracefully? Not if it means not sleeping, having to starve to keep weight down, potentially breaking bones and injuring tendons, no energy to even get out of bed, not remembering, hair falling out by the handful ….that’s not graceful.

With Bio-Identical hormones, it’s still you but a better you!!!!!”
