Leptin, discovered in 1994, was hailed in the late 1990s as the miracle solution to America’s growing weight problem. It is a polypeptide protein (hormone) naturally produced in the body that sends signals to the hypothalamus of the brain — the center that controls feeding, appetite and satiety (fullness).
- Leptin inhibits the neuronal cells from releasing appetite-stimulating hormones, such as neuropeptide Y (NPY) and an Agouti-related protein, also called Agouti-related peptide (AgRP). It is also helpful for those not wanting to gain weight while quitting smoking, because nicotine suppresses NPY.
- Leptin initiates a major satiety pathway that suppresses feeding urges and appetite.
- Leptin affects the appetite-reward pathway in the hippocampus, thus helping to reduce cravings.
- Leptin increases lipolytic thermogenesis (fat burning). The degree varies with each individual, but based on feedback so far, weight loss seems to be one to two pounds a week. I would estimate it causes the burning of an additional 400 calories a day, which in seven days would be 2,800 calories. This is less than the 3,600 calories in one pound, but with reduced caloric consumption, it helps to explain the weight loss. However, additional studies need to be conducted.
Now there is an answer
Let us consider a proven solution. Hormonal and growth factor signaling can be done either molecularly, which is the focus of traditional research, or by stimulus via the neural system. This is similar to getting a whiff of an aroma and instantly associating it with a memory, such as a childhood picnic. The nerve endings in the olfactory lobe recognize the unique molecular signaling and convey its presence. Similarly, when taking a homeopathic remedy such as leptin, this presence is signaling to the body and cells, while leptin receptor sites are stimulated to respond.
Through the clinically proven principles of homeopathic cell signaling and the safety of recombinant DNA technology, the elusive challenge of effective administration of leptin is now possible using a spray application.
I recently concluded case studies with homeopathic leptin spray at a clinic in Tampa, Fla. The preliminary results all support its safety and efficacy, along with success in appetite reduction, reduction in sugar cravings and weight loss. Clinical studies are planned this summer with pediatricians whose patients are overweight mothers and their toddlers.
Benefits of homeopathic leptin
Leptin complements all weight loss, weight management and diet programs with benefits usually noticed the first day taken. It is safe, effective, without side effects and appears to alter appetite reward pathways in the hippocampus for healthier eating desires.
Homeopathic leptin spray addresses the following issues: suppresses the urge to snack and urgent or ravenous eating at mealtime; raises metabolism via lipolytic thermogenesis (fat-burning); helps hormonal imbalances that vex the success of diet and weight management programs; and balances hypothalamic signaling for healthier eating.
Numerous risk factors are associated with obesity. They include increased infections, cardiovascular diseases, hormonal disruption, accelerated aging, depression, hypertension, infertility, Alzheimer’s, insomnia and type 2 diabetes. We now have the potential to address excess weight by strengthening the body’s own neuro-immuno-endocrine system through homeopathic leptin spray.
