Weight Loss

When it comes to losing weight, women are at a disadvantage because there are underlying causes of weight gain not being addressed. If you have tried to lose weight but have been unsuccessful, it may be because of reasons like hormone imbalance, insulin resistance, and stress. Dr. Iris Crawford specializes in identifying the root causes that prevent you from reaching your healthy weight.



The Crawford Metabolic Repair Protocol

For those who no matter what you eat or how much you exercise you can’t lose weight OR if you can lose weight but then gain it all back again. This will reset your broken or slow metabolism allowing you to start burning that stubborn fat.

Our incredible plan can get your health on track!

*Weight loss cannot be not guaranteed due to individual differences, underlying health issues, and compliance.

**The Crawford Metabolic Repair Protocol is available to Washington State Residents only.


I’m an emotional eater and was always on a diet but nothing seemed to help me lose weight. I avoided going out on dates or out with friends or doing things with family because I didn’t feel good about the way I looked. Dr. Crawford is helping me get my body back in balance and I finally know exactly what to eat and in the process lose the extra weight.


Before working with Dr. Crawford I had tried so many strict diets with very little results. It was very stressful to put in so much time, money, and effort and not get results. I was frustrated with trying to find clothes that fit or be active while being overweight. Now, since I have lost 50 pounds I feel I have a better outlook on life. This program has opened my eyes to making healthy life changes rather than a quick fix. With the encouragement and support from Dr. Crawford I know I can get to my goal and maintain the results.


I was struggling with many things: weight, over-eating, anxiety, depression, and overall health. I lost about 20 pounds and transformed my eating habits and metabolism. I’ve also worked with Dr. Crawford on addressing hormonal and thyroid issues that affect my mood. I feel much lighter and have more energy. I’m not craving really bad food and I’m optimistic about my overall health goals moving forward. I feel like I’m on the road to being the healthiest I’ve ever been. Everyone is amazing and you provide really helpful resources to be successful.


Weight Loss Q & A

What causes weight gain?

Obesity is a severe problem in the United States, and recent estimates suggest that by 2030, half of all Americans will be obese, though most people believe they should lose weight or be within a healthy weight range.

Weight gain isn’t as simple as how much you eat, though that is important. The primary underlying cause of weight gain is a damaged metabolism, which can be caused by numerous factors, including:

  • Hormone imbalance
  • Insulin resistance
  • Elevated, chronic stress levels
  • Poor sleep quality or habits
  • Toxic exposure
  • Poor nutritional habits
  • Inadequate levels or types of exercise

These factors damage your ability to lose weight effectively, despite your best efforts at low-calorie diets or other weight loss plans.

What is the naturopathic approach to weight loss?

The naturopathic approach to weight loss appreciates that your causes for weight gain and weight loss resistance are specific to you. At Naturkur Wellness, you begin with a FREE Metabolic and Hormone Assessment, which helps us gain a comprehensive view of your health.

Based on the assessment of your health, we create a treatment plan that may include:

  • Hormone-balancing treatments
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement
  • Botanical medicines
  • Diet and nutritional therapy
  • Detoxification treatments
  • Naturkur Wellness professional supplements
  • Health coaching, education, and counseling

Goals of naturopathic weight loss are to heal your metabolism, correct hormone imbalance, and treat the underlying causes that make you weight loss-resistant.

How can weight loss improve other health conditions?

Healthy weight loss is known to help improve many health conditions brought on by obesity and which progress more rapidly when your metabolism is damaged.

Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance or the body’s inability to keep up with the needed amounts of insulin to manage your metabolism. With healthy weight loss and a focus on healing your metabolism, you can improve and/or reverse your symptoms.

Other conditions that may be improved or reversed with healthy weight loss include:

  • Heart disease
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Elevated or high blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Fibromyalgia and chronic pain

At Naturkur Wellness, we create transformational health programs that equip you for not only losing weight, but also for reaching your optimal level of health in every area.
