Obese vs. "Normal" individual
Although these images make it very obvious that there is a problem here. It may be easier to think of individuals (or yourself for that matter) as either in balance (Homeostasis) or not!
How does Chiropractic fit into obesity? Well, consider that Chiropractors are the second largest leading health profession in the world behind "Medicine, " and that our primary focus in on prevention and maintenance of your health and well-being "before" you get sick. As well, we are focused on "correcting" the imbalances in your body that got you ill or in pain in the first place, rather than simply covering up your symptoms. Chiropractors are all trained in Nutrition as a part of their schooling (Chiropractic Hours = 120 Hours + ; Medical hours = 0).
If you are able to walk into our offices, then there is more "right" with you than "wrong" with you and you are capable of healing to some degree. A part of the Chiropractic Treatment regimen is often to modify your diet for optimal balanced function of your body. Chiropractors generally look at your body from the perspective of "4 Essentials" ( as in 4 essentials to life).
1. Proper Nervous system function 2. Food 3. Water 4. Air........................take any 1 away and you die, diminish one or more and you are out of balance and therefore not in a place of optimal health.
Do you really want to wait so long that those imbalances require drugs, surgery, or other severe interventions that could have been easily avoided?
Yours in health, wellness, and "balance",
