I’m not sure if you’ve ever thought about weight loss, and your chiropractic care, but having excessive weight can pose many health threats like cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, diabetes, colon cancer, and gall bladder disease. Being overweight can also make you feel insecure, embarrassed and uncomfortable at times.

What Is Causing This Weight Gain

   Primarily, weight gain is caused by excessive food intake, body toxicity and physical strain. Internal reasons like, decreased brain stimulation of the glands like hypothalamus, thyroid glands, adrenal glands, mal-absorption, sensitivity ....ect.

   Stress, boredom, comfort issues and malnutrition can also cause of obesity. If you constantly eat the wrong foods or your body can not absorb the nutrients your cells need, that will keep YOUR body hungry and will prompt you to continue eating.

Weight Loss Progress

 Most of the people who try dieting FAIL because of the reduced amount of the food they eat. In this case, I can be a big help for people who are considering weight loss. I offer counseling and guidance that can help slim you if you’re a wannabe and help you evaluate your current lifestyle and nutritional needs.

What’s The First Step?

   The evaluation of your needs should be the first step in order to achieve successful weight loss. In this case, we offer encouragement and specific advice.

   According to studies, spinal adjustments can be very effective in weight loss management. The reason is because the nerves control your stomach, liver, kidneys, etc. Keeping them working properly assures you a better weight loss program. Flexibility is further enhanced during spinal alignments because it takes the pressure off your spinal cord and nerves. This aids in the absorption of essential nutrients and distribution of oxygen in your body. With regular adjustments you can gradually lose more weight.

   Our weight loss program : Safe, fast, personalized, all natural.

 It’s Your Choice

   If you want to lose weight avoid drugs, alcoholic beverages and other vices. Get adequate sleep, refrain from caffeinated drinks and smoking, but in return, you have to drink plenty of water. This lifestyle can help in the program of losing weight because of the reduction of caloric intake and substituting it with nutritious foods.

Healthy Body Composition Evaluation:

The OMRON Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and scale estimates the body fat percentage by Bioelectrical Impedance Method. Muscles, blood, bones and body tissue with high water content conduct electricity easily. On the other hand, body fat does not store much water, therefore has little electric conductivity. The Device sends an extremely weak electrical current of 50 kHz and less than 500 µA through your body to determine the amount of water in each tissue. You will not notice or feel the electrical current.

The healthy body composition must be evaluated by the following comprehensive measurements:

  1. Body Mass Index (BMI): Body Mass Index is a number calculated from a person’s weight and weight. BMI is a reliable indicator of body fitness for people. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI correlates to direct measures of body fat. BMI is used as a screening tool to identify possible weight problem for adult.

2 Body Fat:            Body Fat serves a vital role in storing in energy and protecting internal organs. We carry two types of fat in our bodies: A: essential fat which is stored in small amounts to protect the body and B: stored fat which is stocked for energy during the physical activity. While too much body fat may be unhealthy, having too little fat can be just as unhealthy. Also, the distribution of body fat in men and women is different, so basis for classifying the body fat percentage is different between the genders.

3. Visceral Fat: Visceral Fat is found in the abdomen and surrounding vital organs. It is different from fat found directly underneath the skin, which is referred to as subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat can go largely unnoticed because it’s not visible to the naked eyes. One way visceral fat can be seen is through Magnetic Resonance Imaging or ultra sound for fat liver. Too much visceral fat is thought to be closely linked to increased level of fat in the blood stream, which may lead to conditions such as high cholesterol, heart disease and type II diabetes. In order to prevent or improve these conditions, it is important to try to reduce the amount of visceral fat levels on an acceptable level .

4. Skeletal Muscle: Skeletal Muscle is the type of muscle that we can see and feel. When you work out to increase muscle mass, skeletal muscle is being exercised. Skeletal muscles attached to the skeleton an dome in pairs – one muscle to move the bone in one direction and another to move it back the other way. Increased skeletal muscle will increase your body’s energy requirements. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn. Building skeletal muscle can help prevent “rebound” weight gain. The maintenance an increase of skeletal muscle is closely linked to resting metabolism rate.

5.         Bone Mass:This feature indicates the amount of bone (bone mineral level, calcium or other minerals) in the body. Research has shown that exercise and the development of muscle tissue are related to stronger, healthier bones.
Women:          estimated bone mass(lb)  4.5 ~ 7.5
Men:               estimated bone mass(lb)  6.5 ~ 9.5

6. Body Water:  Total Body Water Percentage is the total amount of fluid in a person’s body expressed as a percentage of their total weight. Water plays a vital role in many of the body’s processes and is found in every cell, tissue and organ. Maintaining a healthy total body water percentage will ensure the body  functions efficiently and will reduce the risk of developing associated health problems.
Healthy Ranges:      Female : 45 to 60%               Male : 50 to 65%

7.         Base Metabolism:    Our Base Metabolic Rate(BMR) is the minimum level of energy our body needs when at rest to function effectively including the respiratory and circulatory organs, neural system, liver, kidneys, and other organs. We burn calories when sleeping. About 70% of calories consumed every day are used for our basal metabolism.
