You know that we incorporated the ChiroThin Weight Loss program in our office a couple of years ago. Many of you have had GREAT success, losing 20, 30, 40 even 50+ pounds in as little as 6 weeks. It’s awesome seeing these physical changes weekly when a patient walks in the door. BUT, the biggest differences that go unseen are the changes in physiology and blood chemistry! We routinely see blood pressure lowering to within normal limits (patients get off medication), we see changes in blood sugar (patients get to go off diabetes medication), and see normal cholesterol numbers! (Patients get to come off the DANGEROUS statins).
100 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes according to the CDC. It is estimated that 85% of diabetics are overweight. Research on diabetes showed that compared with people without diabetes, those with diabetes were 70% more likely to have rheumatoid arthritis, 33% more likely to suffer from osteoarthritis, and 29% more likely to have osteoporosis.
Over time, when your weight slips into an unhealthy range, the risk of degenerative disc disease increases by 30 to 79 percent. As discs compensate for the pressure of extra weight, they can become herniated. This damage compresses the spaces between the bones in the spine, causing pinched nerves, sciatica and/or piriformis syndrome (muscle spasms that cause pain and can irritate the sciatic nerve). The pressure of extra weight can also aggravate osteoarthritis of the spine, and/or trigger the development of osteoarthritis.
The thing is though, excess weight is incredibly INFLAMMATORY to the body, HUGELY INFLAMMATORY. It is linked to everything from cancer, heart disease, blood pressure, fatigue, infertility, chronic pain, surgeries related to pain and deterioration. It is like asking a truck to pull a much too heavy load, the truck may be able to do it for a while, but it will deteriorate much faster than had it not. The two biggest impacts you can make on your own health are to keep your weight healthy, and stay mobile. Not only can this keep you physically healthy, but you’ll also have a much better shot at living a life of freedom from doctor appointments, emotional struggles, expensive medications, and fatigue.
Maintaining a healthy weight or losing weight can help ease or prevent back issues, and reduces stress on other joints as well. Dropping just a few pounds can make a big difference to your back. For every 4 pounds you lose, you remove 16 pounds of pressure from your spine. In one study, the risk of developing osteoarthritis dropped 50% with each 11-pound weight loss.
So as you can see, the effect of being obese, overweight, or just carrying a little extra weight has an immense impact of your joints, your spine and your overall health. Most, if not all, of our patients that have gone through the ChiroThin Weight Loss program have reported feeling better with more energy and having less pain (back pain, knee pain etc.). Of course, regular chiropractic care keeps your spine moving correctly allowing it to function better, resulting in better health and less pain so they go hand in hand.
A lot of people are uncomfortable seeing or talking to a doctor about their weight, but it DOES have a direct impact on health. Here’s the deal, I understand it is uncomfortable talking about an obvious issue people can see every day, one that you essentially wear. We are not here to judge you, we are here to help!
The doctor supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program blends science and physiology to allow you to get healthier AND lose weight. With over 100,000 happy and satisfied ChiroThin Weight Loss Program patients across the United States, we know that, when following the program as instructed, the average female patient will lose 20-35 pounds (2-3 dress sizes) in just 42 days and the average man will lose between 30-45 pounds in the same amount of time! Could you imagine?
Needless to say, I am very excited about this program and its impact on your health. I would love to tell you more about it.
