Feeling High Naturally While Losing Weight

What could be better than feeling absolutely high while losing weight? By high, I mean not grumpy, dejected or fatigued; just feeling really good on top of feeling really “high energy good!”

Accelerating your metabolic rate to its most efficient equilibrium will make you feel better than ever, but there are additional nutrients that can make you feel good every step of the way – even when you’re detoxifying. Fortunately, most of these special substances help in the metabolic acceleration process when applied properly, with little to no potential health risk. Of course, your personalized BioCorrect Nutrition™ program keeps things in check every step of the way with its built-in testing and corrective procedures.

There are a number of “feel good” nutritional-brain/body mechanisms which we can simultaneously manipulate for the best results possible.  Please note, once you’ve taken the BioCorrect Nutrition™ Analysis; we will know your metabolic Rate/Type, and mineral deficiencies and excesses.  This allows us to even further refine the mechanisms listed below to the specific needs of each person’s unique metabolism.

For the purpose of general discussion; here is a list of the “feel good” nutritional mechanisms, we base our success on:

  • Stress Busting
  • Good Mood Amplification
  • Mega – Energizing
  • Craving and Addiction Obliteration
  • Deep Sleep Augmentation
  • Super Oxygenation
  • Alpha State “Bliss Magnification”
  • Music, Vibration and Color Therapy
  • Mega Endorphin Therapy
  • Sexual High Fortification

Note: numbers 1 through 7 (above) are most directly affected by the nutrient boosters discussed below. Numbers 8 through 10 are topics for other aspects of feeling good while losing fat.

How it Works

The BioCorrect Nutrition™ Analysis (BNA) and nutraceutical system* automatically and naturally, accelerates metabolism to its most efficient steady-state in both adults and children.  This then increases energy levels, decelerates the aging process, enhances quality of life, inhibits disease processes, burns off unwanted fat, detoxifies poisons, sharpens the mind and improves memory, stabilizes mood swings, resists the side effects of stress, eliminates cravings and addictions, improves sleep and waking patterns, and ultimately helps each person to feel secure, calm and connected!

If this doesn’t seem like enough, let’s make the whole experience even more rewarding by providing a heightened “feel good at all times” chemistry with these selected nutrachemical boosters.*

Warning: For best results, the list of natural highs itemized below should be used strategically with the BNA once your Metabolic Rate/Type is determined. Using the nutrient boosters listed below randomly (without the BNA and understanding the biochemistry behind each booster) may yield far fewer beneficial results, could upset your basic body chemistry, and may undermine your metabolism and overall health goals. You may not achieve your desired results and could create more problems than you solve.

Feel Good Boosters*

Acetyl L-carnitine – provides neurotransmitter fuel for the brain helping it to make higher levels of acetylcholine, which in turn improves moods, suppresses stress and increases mental performance.

Ashwaganda (aka Withania somnifera) – helps to stabilize stress-induced cortisol, and enhances acetylcholine formation and function, provides adaptogenic catalysis (helps other chemical reactions to become more efficient). This can improve energy levels.

Select B Vitamins – depending upon your given Metabolic Rate/Type, there are certain B vitamins specific to each rate/type, which will enable greater energy production, better moods, and increased mind and memory functions.

The exact chemical mechanisms these work through involve turning glucose into energy, stimulating neurotransmitter production, improving oxygen transfer/transport, stabilizing antioxidants and certain toxins and acting as chemical connectors to help many beneficial biochemical reactions take place. “B’s” have been shown to raise IQ and have even helped depress frightening hallucination experiences in schizophrenics!

Caution: Taking the B complex out of balance, especially too much B3 and B6, not only will upset the other B vitamin balance but will cause other adverse effects as well.

Choline – a direct precursor for acetylcholine, which fortifies neuronal membranes, allowing for better nerve cell function; this increases alertness, clear thinking, better concentration, improved memory, and enhanced brain development (in children). A side benefit when it comes to weight loss is that it acts as a fat emulsifier allowing for more efficient fatty acid metabolism.

Coenzyme Q10 – in some metabolic rate/types, it stimulates intracellular energy production to help both energy creation and endurance promotion, plus it resists receding gums.

Caution: Given to the wrong metabolic type/rate it directly antagonizes energy creation and endurance promotion.

DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) – as an omega-3 fatty acid, it provides building material for nerve membranes and neurotransmitter receptor sites, plus it increases acetylcholine and serotonin levels; this improves memory and learning, moods, and resists depression, manic depression, dyslexia, and dyspraxia.

DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) – as a precursor for choline is readily crosses the blood brain barrier to help promote acetylcholine production and dopamine activity, which effectively increases alertness and concentration while it reduces anxiety, improves learning and attention span, and normalizes brainwave patterns.

Caution: Too much acts as a stimulant which is not for people with schizophrenia, media, advanced insomnia or epilepsy.

EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) – an omega-3 fat provides certain prostaglandins which influence mood and behavior positively.

Caution – due to its blood thinning properties it should not be overused in conjunction with anticlotting prescription medication.

GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid) – acts as a sedative neurotransmitter to calm unsettling brain activity down, this helps to counteract antagonism from stress hormones which all add up to reduced anxiety, less insomnia and overall tension relief.

Ginkgo Biloba – generally improves circulation and oxygenation, acts as an antioxidant and consequently improves moods, concentration, memory and energy levels.

Caution: Large amount should not be taken due to its blood thinning properties and potential to cause nausea, headaches and nosebleeds.

Ginseng – provides direct support to the adrenal glands and has adaptogenic properties, this enhances the body stress response, diminishes anxiety, stimulates immediate energy, increases mental and physical performance, acts as a vitality tonic, and can improve endurance levels.

Caution: In certain people, menstrual abnormalities and breast tenderness have been noted along with a potential to cause insomnia, when taken in inappropriate dosages.

Green Tea – provides theanine and caffeine along with multiple antioxidants all of which has been shown to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure while improving “good” cholesterol levels, and enhances immune function, reduces dental caries, lessens hypertension, encourages weight-loss through concentrated fat burn off, and maximizes alertness with a minimum of over stimulation.

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) – a direct precursor to serotonin and tryptamines – two of the greatest feel good substances the body contains. 5-HTP promotes mood elevation, relaxation, deeper better sleep and waking patterns, increased emotional stability, deeper dream states and enhanced creative imagination. Overdoing it can cause gastrointestinal problems and/or compete with SSRI antidepressants.

Kava – sedates the limbic system component of the brain which controls the emotions while it relaxes muscles, enhances GABA’s effects upon the most relaxing neurotransmitters of all, dopamine, as it modulates adrenaline and/or adrenaline which can cause unsettling problems when out of balance. All in all, it helps to relax the mind, muscles and emotions, all helpful in pain management from headaches back aches and other tension problems. Enhances sleep, reduces mental chatter, enhances mental focus, improves sensory perception, overall awareness, and promotes feelings of well-being, mind-body connectionism and empathy of others.

Caution: Not to be used when commandeering heavy machinery or mixed with alcohol, enzodiazepine tranquilizers or in the presence of impaired liver function.

Licorice – maximizes existing cortisol levels, enhances adrenal functions and improves upon low blood pressure.

Caution – not to be overused by people with high cortisol levels or high blood pressure.

NADH (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) – directly stimulates the production of dopamine, noradrenaline and serotonin which in effect upgrades mental clarity, enhances cellular memory, and provides greater alertness and concentration levels, while enhancing athletic endurance and energy.

DL-phenylalanine (DLPA) – converts into tyrosine which converts into dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline all of which enhances good moods, promotes energy, relieves pain and suppresses appetite.

Caution: Can be a little too stimulating to some metabolic rate/types which in turn cause an increase in anxiety, high blood pressure and insomnia. It is not recommended for those who suffer manic disorders and other mental illness and not to be used by phenylketonurics.

Phosphatidylserine – provides the building substances for neuronal membranes and neurotransmitter receptor sites which help to improve mood, maximize memory, enhance stress resistance, learning and concentration.

Pyroglutamate – directly increases acetylcholine production and neuronal reception, which improves memory, all mental functions, concentration, coordination, and reaction time. Also improves the communication between the right and left hemispheres of the brain.

Reishi Mushroom – works as an adaptogen to stabilize adrenal hormones which in effect, calms and energizes the body simultaneously.

Rhodiola – another adaptogen which stabilizes adrenal hormones and promotes serotonin production, which improves concentration, increases stress resistance, maximizes physical performance, generates better moods and boosts immunity.

SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine) and TMG (Trimethylglycine) – two methyl group donators which promote neurotransmitter production and DNA replication. Ultimately, their balanced use promotes a very potent antidepressants effect, which automatically improves moods, and increases energy reserves.

Caution: Can cause nausea, may lead to irritability when overused and may be problematic for people with bipolar disorders.

Sceletium – enhances serotonin activity, balances dopamine, adrenaline and nor- adrenaline for a reduction in depression, tension, and anxiety. It is also known to enhance sensory perception, imagination and insight, and can reduce addictive cravings.

Caution: In large doses may induce euphoria followed by sedation and is not to be used with prescription antidepressants or combined with large amounts of 5HTP due to the possibility of serotonin syndrome, an uncomfortable condition.

St. John’s Wort – resists the breakdown of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine, while enhancing GABA activity. This all enhances moods, has an antidepressant effect, combats anxiety, and can help regulate sleep.

Caution: Can cause allergic reactions, rashes, gastrointestinal problems, sun sensitivity, anxiety, and insomnia, and may reduce the potency of certain medications used for AIDS or other immunosuppressive disorders. It is also not recommended that it be taken with 5-HTP.

Taurine – GABA enhancer which helps to reduce anxiety, irritability, insomnia, migraine, alcoholism, obsession and depression. Tyrosine, a direct precursor to dopamine, adrenaline, noradrenaline and thyroxine (the dominate thyroid hormone), which enhances moods, increases energy production, maximizes motivation and supports a healthy thyroid function.

Caution: Not to be used by hypertensives or phenylketonurics or people suffering from melanomas. It is also contraindicated for pregnant and nursing women and people with a history of mania.

Valerian – although it smells bad to some, it is a GABA enhancer which ultimately reduces anxiety, insomnia and tension.

Caution – enhances sedative drugs and adversely interacts without alcohol.

Vinpocetine – increases blood flow and general brain circulation which improves all mental functions and is helpful in epilepsy.

There are even more “feel good” weight-loss nutraceuticals and other techniques to assist in the most natural high possible.  These are the basics of the fat loss “high life” that’s available for you on the BNA program.
