Benefits of Weight Loss

You may not always think of it but there are more benefits to losing weight than just a smaller number on the scale.  As a chiropractor in Boise I regularly see the effects that excess weight can have on the body.
  For starters, the spine and joints of the arms and legs have to deal with all that extra force bearing down.  Having too much fat can start to wear out your hips, knees and other joints of the spine and cause degeneration.  And this degeneration can cause joint pain and inflammation which makes your body hurt all over and keeps you from doing the things you love.

Fat cells do not just sit still, they are active all the time.  Your fat tissue constantly releases inflammatory molecules into our bloodstream that make us feel fatigued, stressed, and hungry.  Leptin is a molecule from fat that tells our brain when we are full.  Too many fat cells cause too much Leptin to be released.  The brain eventually ignores the signal that you are full and starts to think you are always hungry.  Hmm…feeling always hungry, stressed and tired…does that sound familiar?  And if that wasn’t enough, all the inflammation caused by excess fat raises the risk of other problems like back pain, neck pain, gall bladder disease and even cancer!

Benefits of Weight Loss:

  • More Energy

If you’ve tried dieting and you haven’t seen results..don’t despair!  There is a simple, safe, and natural way to lose weight that will increase your energy, improve your sleep, and help build muscle.  The key to jump starting your metabolism, increasing sleep and having more energy is detoxification.  Your body is designed to be healthy, to heal and to overcome disease and dysfunction.  To create a healthy body and lose weight safely and naturally, you have to remove toxins that have built up over time and increase your intake of vitamins and minerals.  I commonly see patients lose 20, 30 even 50 lbs by following our detoxification and supplementation protocols.  As a chiropractor I know that carrying extra weight can be hard on the body and make life more difficult.  Call Red Mountain Chiropractic in Boise today at 322-7755 to schedule your free weight loss and detox consultation.
