Ch. 8 CREATING ULTRAMETABOLISM IN YOUR BODY
Fixing All the Keys to Create UltraMetabolism
January 14, Oswald Chambers
Called By God
I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ’Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ’Here am I! Send me’ —Isaiah 6:8
God did not direct His call to Isaiah— Isaiah overheard God saying, “. . . who will go for Us?” The call of God is not just for a select few but for everyone. Whether I hear God’s call or not depends on the condition of my ears, and exactly what I hear depends upon my spiritual attitude. “Many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14). That is, few prove that they are the chosen ones. The chosen ones are those who have come into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and have had their spiritual condition changed and their ears opened. Then they hear “the voice of the Lord” continually asking, “. . . who will go for Us?” However, God doesn’t single out someone and say, “Now, you go.” He did not force His will on Isaiah. Isaiah was in the presence of God, and he overheard the call. His response, performed in complete freedom, could only be to say, “Here am I! Send me.”
Remove the thought from your mind of expecting God to come to force you or to plead with you. When our Lord called His disciples, He did it without irresistible pressure from the outside. The quiet, yet passionate, insistence of His “Follow Me” was spoken to men whose every sense was receptive (Matthew 4:19). If we will allow the Holy Spirit to bring us face to face with God, we too will hear what Isaiah heard-”the voice of the Lord.” In perfect freedom we too will say, “Here am I! Send me.”
I had this call renewed to me over the holidays while I was listening to several messages from Passion 2013. As the speakers spoke about setting the captives free, once again, GOD quietly reaffirmed to me about sharing the salvation we have in CHRIST JESUS, and the call to share with others how to bring healing to the captives of sickness. I am not a “name it claim it person, and I do believe that JESUS uses our infirmities and sufferings to help us spiritually and get us in places we would never be without suffering. I also believe HIS Words that say, “My people perish for a lack of knowledge.” We are living in a toxic swamp of chemicals, bad foods, molds, and among other chronic health issues, the American people are obese, and there is a reason. We have to learn these reason’s that include the food we eat, and go beyond the food, and physical exercise… just eat less and exercise more, is the traditional answers to weight loss. This class is to help you find out the reasons why you are struggling and what we can do to overcome these toxins we live among that are making us fat and sick.
In chapter 8, of UltraMetabolism, Dr. Hyman met the patient when he was working at Canyon Ranch where he was Co-Medical Director for almost 10 years. “Lauren,” had many significant undiagnosed problems that accounted for her symptoms of weight gain, fatigue and digestive problems. He diagnosed her with a stomach infection, H. pylori, that can cause heartburn, gastric reflux, and generalized inflammation.
Inflammation is one of the keys to UltraMetabolism and is often a major unexplained factor causing weight gain or preventing weight loss. Lauren’s inflammation level, measured by a test called C Reactive protein, was very high. Her good (HDL) cholesterol was very low, and her total cholesterol was 8.35 and should have been less than 3.0. When cholesterol is elevated, one of the common causes is thyroid function is impaired…why? This gets back to heavy metals and chemical a lot of times…they are everywhere…in our cleaning supplies, car exhaust, personal care items, foods we eat, what we swim in…what we eat…the air we breath. If you have a sluggish detox system like mine…you are in trouble. Lauren was severely insulin resistant, a state induced by high levels of refined carbohydrates in the diet caused her to produce huge quantities of insulin that made her even hungrier for starchy carbohydrates. She had also developed a fatty liver common in people with blood sugar problems, which meant she had built up even more toxic weight because she couldn’t detoxify properly.
Impaired detoxification, or trouble with getting rid of our own or environmental toxins is another major key leading to weight gain. Her metabolism, tested during exercise was 40 percent slower than it should have been. She burned 40 percent calories than she should have when exercising.
He prescribed an eating plan that switched Margaret’s metabolism from storing fat to burning it. She went on the Ultrametabolism Program :eating proteins for breakfast, eliminating the white menace (white sugar, white flour, and refined carbohydrates) to reduce her blood sugar swings, eating more omega-3 fats from wild fish and flaxseeds, and performing moderate exercise in the mornings. He treated her stomach infection and had her take multivitamins, fish oil, and lipoic acid (a special nutrient that improves metabolism) to help balance her blood sugar, as well as an herb, milk thistle, to heal her fatty liver.
She returned three months later, 53 pounds lighter, three sizes smaller on top, and one size smaller on the bottom. Her blood sugar and insulin levels had improved dramatically. Her total cholesterol had dropped like a stone, and her good cholesterol increased. Her liver and inflammation tests had returned to normal. She now wakes up full of energy and no more heartburn. She has her life back.
Giving Your Genes the Right Instructions
Lauren is common….many have tried everything to lose weight and can’t. Most of what they were doing was steeped in mythology that surrounds health and weight loss and they had little hope of changing their lives using outdated and scientifically unfounded methods.
This book is an instruction book for our bodies to help create an individualized approach for helping to discover the keys that are blocking your metabolism from working efficiently. We are very blessed to have a doctor working in our area now, who can do specific tests to help you and him discover trouble spots and deal with them. He is working with me, to help me detox and build up nutritionally so that I can go on the heavy metal protocol….it’s a slow process though. We were hoping to start after CHRISTmas, but my body is not ready yet.
The information in the rest of this book will help us not only to succeed in managing our weight, but also in long term health and well being. We will learn together the keys to reversing disease and “BEING SET FREE,” of the chronic painful and annoying symptoms we live with every day such as fatigue, headaches, stress, digestive problems, joint pains, and even postnasal drip. We will experience effortless weight loss and address the underlying causes of chronic disease. The consequences of these changes will be a new feeling of life and energy. Is this just wishful thinking?
No, Dr. Sherry Rogers, Dr. Katherine Henry both have been teaching these principals for years along with many others, and have seen remarkable recoveries in their own health as they have practiced these principles and healed thousands of patients through these methods.
The problem with our current approach to weight loss and health problems is everyone is treated equally and given one prescription for weight loss: “Eat less, exercise more.” THIS IS NOT THE WHOLE STORY….
We are all genetically and biochemically unique. UltraMetabolism will help us identify the hidden keys to your metabolism and turn on the genes that will make us healthy and fit. This approach will help create a personalized program on a foundation of scientifically based, sound nutritional principals.
Part 2 summarizes the critical keys that underlie nearly all weight problems ( and most chronic diseases).
Using the quizzes in each chapter, you will learn if you need to focus on correcting problems in that key.
Following the steps in each chapter in Part 2 for foods, supplements, herbs, and tests, you will help correct those problems.
If you need further help, suggestions for testing and further help are offered.
Important Announcement about Seminar by Dr. Rodney Soto, who recommended the book UltraMetabolism to me. He along with Dr. Katherine Henry, Dr. Sherry Rogers, Dr. William Rea and others have been using and teaching some or all of these methods on their own health and their patients… working on getting the toxins out and the nutrients in!
This is an important article that Dr. Mercola posted on his site about the way that the accumulation of mercury in our body affects our health from anxiety to depression to fatigue, weight gain, Parkinson’s and more. He also discusses the tedious process of detoxing these heavy metals from the body…it must be overseen by a wise and knowledgable physician who knows what they are doing. I am living proof of that…
