Our body needs energy to sustain itself and to support any additional activities.

Every second of our life, our body is constantly active. For example, it takes in and transports oxygen to every cell, muscle, tissue and organ. It builds, rebuilds, maintains, repairs and cleans itself. It counters infection. It maintains a constant safe temperature and regulates millions of chemical reactions. So even when we sleep or do nothing, the body is actively expelling energy. About 70 percent of our energy is utilized during these processes.

The moment we get up or start moving around, we need extra energy. The more active we are and the more physical activity we engage in, the more energy we need. On average, about 30 percent of our energy is used up on this additional activity.

Our body has two sources of available energy:

1) Energy from food - Our body converts food into energy. This food-energy is measured in calories.

2) Stored energy - When we eat more food than we need, the body converts the food and stores it as excess energy, commonly know as fat. Women tend to store this fat on their hips and thighs; men store it around their middle.

Our therapy addresses the physical aspects of eating and the addition of nicotine. Every person is different and has individual psychological and emotional aspects to deal with when losing weight, becoming a  non-smoker and reducing stress, hence, to that end, the process cannot be guaranteed. However, we will work extensively with each person to support their success. Copyright 2014 Center for Laser Therapy LLC
