Why is it so important to maintain a healthy weight?
Being overweight or obese puts considerable strain on the body and can lead to a number of serious medical conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease. Further, the body physically suffers from carrying excess pounds, which affects all of the joints from the knees and hips to the spine. The extra weight can contribute to misalignment, which may cause pain and mobility issues. The doctors at Full of Life Chiropractic have a holistic health philosophy. They want to encourage their patients to live their healthiest possible lives, including preventing or reducing the risk of weight-related medical conditions and improving physical capabilities.
Why should I work with a doctor to lose weight? Can’t I just eat less?
The doctors at Full of Life Chiropractic not only provide accountability and support for you to make healthy choices, they also have in-depth knowledge of the nutrients and vitamins the body needs to function at optimal levels. Often, a reduced diet results in nutritional deficiencies that cause the body to not operate at its best level, causing a slow in weight loss. Further, the doctors provide customized advice on what supplements and vitamins a patient should take. It’s important that a medical professional provides guidance on supplements, as it’s possible for different supplements to interact poorly. The doctors also ensure that your body gets everything that it needs.
