15 Oct How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Weight Loss?
Every year, the weight-loss industry in the US makes billions of dollars on products and services that range from evidence-based to complete scams that could be detrimental to your health.
Where to begin?!
It can be confusing and ultimately dangerous to try to navigate all the weight loss options on your own.
That’s why it’s so important to maintain healthy skepticism and follow the advice of a health care professional when it comes to creating a healthy weight-loss plan.
Here’s the thing: if you’re seeking to lose weight, all you really want to know is: what will work for ME?
Consider working with your chiropractor for weight loss!
Your chiropractor is a health care professional who knows you, your body, your habits, your pain points, your struggles, and your health goals–and is well-positioned to help you create a customized plan.
It’s safe to assume that you’re going to achieve your goals by making some changes to your nutrition and exercise. (And also by drinking enough water, getting good sleep, and doing activities that cultivate a sense of well-being. This will all go into your plan!)
And here’s where chiropractic adjustments really come into play:
You need your body to be in optimal shape in order to carry out the plan.
If you have chronic back pain, for example, you’re likely to be less motivated to use the rowing machine at the gym.
If you have a limited range of motion in your hip, you might not feel that jazzed about taking a brisk walk.
You’re also much less likely to stick to the plan when you’re exhausted, dehydrated, depressed, or generally overwhelmed.
Even if you commit to these activities consciously, your subconscious brain is getting signals through your nervous system that it would be safest and best just to stay on the couch.
And that will set you back.
Weight gain may actually lead to more pain. Which leads to more weight gain. And so on…
So it’s absolutely in your best interest to schedule regular chiropractic adjustments to get your body into optimal alignment–so you don’t find yourself in this counterproductive spiral.
Removing subluxations can help you move better and help calm your nervous system so your body can function optimally.
