Weight Loss

Anonymous,  NSW, Australia

Since regularly attending Universal Medicine events my body has gone through the following changes:

My weight has gone from 91.5kg to 69.5kg, or from a BMI of 27 to 21. The first 10kg through dieting (I was in a hurry and decided off my own bat to do something), the next 12kg happened by themselves.

I drank almost daily until five years ago and have never had any alcohol since. The interesting thing is that I don’t miss alcohol at all.

I drank my last decaf coffee two years ago because drinking a cup was like being kicked and I was unpleasantly racy for two hours afterwards. I love the taste of coffee but even decaf (let alone caffeinated) coffee is no fun.

The upside is that I have no problem working eight hours a day, six days a week, sometimes longer, and I don’t fade at all after lunch and am only pleasantly tired in the evening.

My blood pressure has gone from 125 to 109 and sometimes as low as 98, which is pretty good for a male aged 53. I had elevated cholesterol 10 years ago and my cholesterol is now deep in the healthy zone.

I regularly took multi vitamin pills in the past but gradually reduced it to one a week, one a fortnight, one a month and now no pills at all. When I took a vitamin pill during a very stressful time two years ago my urine turned a very bright orange which in the past only happened when I took too many vitamin pills, so I didn’t take any more.

  1. Shame this one is anonymous because of the significant changes that have occurred. I was never a big fan of diets or health programs. I did eat my version of healthy but it was very inconsistent and had a lot of moving pieces. A few years ago now I was over the taste and the feeling alcohol gave me and so I stopped and with that decision I lost some weight by default. Around the same time dairy milk was making me feel very unwell and the smell almost made me throw up and so I stopped drinking or eating dairy. This was easy because of how the smell was for me and by default I lost some more weight. There are other points as well but in the past 7 years I’ve dropped about 27 kgs and now my weight has been very consistently the same for about 2 years. I didn’t diet or changed anything deliberately to achieve a goal. I just stopped doing things that I no longer liked or felt good to me and by default other things changed.

  2. Thank you Anno, and defenitely the benefits are endless when we say no to that which is not from truth and therefore harmful to our bodies and yes to more of the love that we are.

  3. Since starting to do the work as being a student of the Ageless Wisdom is called, my health has improved in ways that most would struggle to believe was possible with no medication to the point that at 67 I would say that my health is the best it has been since I was 17.

  4. What a living miracle you are, this is a great example of how loving choices bring true healing to the body – well done for your commitment to yourself.

  5. 10 years ago I was around 74kg, today I am 54kg. I am not sure what my BMI is but apparently the medical profession labels me borderline anorexic, yet I have never felt so healthy and I love my food. Is what we consider normal with weight really normal or just where we have all sunk to?

  6. I know my health and definitely improved since attending Universal Medicine .. it is a shame I didn’t have a record of before and after statistics as you did to see exactly what has changed and by how much.

  7. It is such a joy to read again and again that the truth I have found for myself about food choices is actually not a truth of my own because as so many come to the same truth of what our food choices can do to the body and our overall wellbeing, you can say it is a universal truth many and I have connected to.

  8. I get the feeling all these changes happened not by you tackling them head on, as in you didn’t go out of your way to reduce your cholesterol or try hard to die up alcohol. It seems they were all by-products of the way you chose to live. Which if we flip the coin and look at our health and wellbeing in relation to the way we live – perhaps it’s not about addressing the problems and symptoms but about how we are living.

    1. I couldn’t agree more Nikki, I found that when I focused on dieting the whole process was a huge struggle, but when I let that go and then concentrated on how my body felt when I let things go (emotionally and food wise) the weight came off on its own accord. It was not instant but because I was feeling healthier in myself I did not have the push to shift the weight, but felt confident that it would go in its own time.

    2. Nikki, your point addresses exactly why diets don’t work, if we want lasting change we need to address the underlying causes, which I feel are what anonymous is sharing. And it seems that in this case addressing the root of the issue allowed the weight to virtually just fall off as new behaviours were formed.

  9. Sounds like your new way of being is truly supporting your vitality too. It is also interesting to note that there is a lot more to consider than dieting to return to our natural weight and true well ‘being’.

  10. What you have shared here Anonymous is that you can indeed bring vitality and wellbeing from how you live, the supplements can support, but it is very much how you move and live that makes all the difference.

  11. Lifestyle choices have a big impact on well… our lifestyles! Going on a diet may achieve something but what you have described is a whole new way of living and it seems the proof is in the pudding.

  12. Why do we feel we need to hide when we have so many amazing miracles of true change happening in our lives. It is an indictment on society that when someone has returned to living more true and joyful they feel they need to hide it away because not many are truly open, embracing and accepting of their reflection. I love the reminder that there is no perfectionism in true responsibility.

  13. As a result of initiating more loving choices to the way in which we are living, it is possible to feel the ease at which the body reharmonises and rebalances itself. The focus becomes not on losing weight but a whole lifestyle change and the body naturally discarding what does not belong.

  14. I find that the more I love myself and care for myself, the less I feel the need for foods or drinks that offer reward, comfort or stimulation. As a result my body has settled into a more natural weight, BMI, and I sleep better having more energy as a consequence.

  15. A beautiful change to the way you live, for myself I have found choosing not to drink alcohol or coffee a great choice, because both of them used to stop me from being able to truly connect with myself, now through more self loving choices I am able to look after myself much more lovingly.

  16. Developing our relationship with self allows us to be honest about the consequences of what we ingest through all our senses, for in truth when we live from our essence there is no need of stimulation or dulling as we understand that life evolves around the awareness within.

  17. Living from how we feel and being honest and open to what is being shared with us constantly allows us to live from our bodies and not against them. it is in this union of connection we find true vitality, love and support and life becomes more about feeling and not finding the next quick fix.

  18. This is so wonderful and so clear as to the power we have in our own hands if we make the choice, thank you for sharing.

  19. Weight like water seems to adjust to it natural level when we don’t obstruct our body with food and drinks.
    I know this from my own experience.

  20. When our movements reflect the essence of who we are, our bodies go through a metamorphosis that reflects our natural body shape; we realize then that there is no longer an attachment to look a specific way as there is a deeper level of self- acceptance as instruments of God’s work.

  21. When we turn our attention inwardly instead of outwardly and with that become to honour that what lives within, our bodies will naturally respond and become very communicative in what it likes or not.

  22. Choosing to no longer consume substances that are not conducive for our body is the greatest way to support our body. To identify those things that are not conducive is by trial and error and trying for oneself what works for others. I did this and my health and wellbeing is completely different to what it was before.

  23. It is amazing to experience the positive changes that naturally occur to our body when we begin to live in honor of and guided by what our body tells us. The more we live in connection to what is true, the more our body is restored to reflect its true and natural vitality.

  24. I drank almost daily before Universal Medicine, in fact I’m not even certain if there were any days that I would go without a drink and yet now I would never even consider having a glass of wine because I know how it would leave me feeling.

  25. These are amazing changes, complete opposite to what seems to be happening to many people all over the world. And if these are the result of the choices being made as inspired by Universal Medicine, it seems like a good idea to at least have a listen to what they have to say and give it a go.

  26. The best kind of weight loss is done without any effort at all. This is how it happened for me too once I stopped eating gluten. True choices that come from your body will naturally restore health and vitality.
