Our Chiropractor in St. Joseph Can Help With Weight Loss
Getting to a healthy weight and maintaining that weight is a major goal for many people. For most people in the United States, weight management begins with some form of dieting and/or exercise. There are obviously many different methods people use in order to lose weight. Some simply try to count calories and head to the gym, while others try trending diets. An unrecognized source may be the help of a chiropractor.
Deciding Your Weight Loss Goal
For some, a so-called healthy weight, based on Body Mass Index (BMI), seems far-fetched or even unattainable through diet and exercise alone. If you are obese or close to it, a better goal may be to start by focusing on losing 5-10% of your body weight, which can help improve your metabolism and even make future goals easier to obtain.
Getting a Head Start
For many people starting a vigorous exercise program isn't easy, especially if they have other health problems. At St. Joseph Chiropractic, we have an alternative way to help these people by offering a service called the Slimdome, which is an infrared sauna. The Slimdome uses infrared energy to burn calories -- up to 600 in a 40-minute session. In addition, the treatment has also helped to:
- reduce inflammation which causes joint pain
- improve circulation
- reduce toxins
- increase metabolism
- improve skin tone
- aid in healing of eczema/psoriasis
While working out in the traditional way can reduce stress for some, others find that strenuous workouts have the opposite effect, causing stress and making weight loss harder. Since Slimdome treatments happen while you are relaxed, it reduces the negative byproducts stress brings to your weight loss journey.
At St. Joseph Chiropractic, in St. Joseph, Missouri, there are many ways that we help people as they embark on their weight loss journey. Being overweight is something that can wreak havoc on a person's joints, bones, muscles, and ligaments which contributes to various aches and pains. Weight loss through traditional methods can take time. Regular spinal and extremity adjustments can help you stay properly aligned, reducing your overall pain, which will help you stay active and motivated through your journey.
In addition to helping patients who struggle with their weight by reducing weight-related pain, we also help them by providing nutrition counseling. There are various supplements that can aid in weight loss, and habits you can incorporate into your lifestyle that can increase your chances of success.
