Weight Loss

Loose Weight with a Weight Loss Program from your Queens Chiropractor

Chiropractic care strives to help patients achieve total body wellness naturally with physiological know-how and nutrition. In addition to traditional chiropractic care, our Queens chiropractor, Dr. James Lee, offers weight loss counseling to promote a healthier, more active, more confident lifestyle.

Some of our weight loss counseling patients come to us frustrated after years of unsuccessfully trying to lose weight using the latest fad diets. Many of these diets tout weight loss through eliminating an entire food group or by severely depriving the body from essential vitamins and nutrients, effectively starving the body.

Also known as yo-yo diets, fad diets only keep the weight off as long as the diet lasts. Once the dieter resumes eating normally, the pounds quickly return as a survival instinct, as the body has been tricked into thinking it was being starved. Not only are yo-yo diets ineffective, they are also bad for your overall health. Depriving the body of essential vitamins and nutrients hinders the immune system and the body's ability to heal, causes fatigue, and can lead to hair loss.

Weight loss counseling at Dr. Lee's Spine Center helps patients lose weight in a healthy manner, while ensuring the body stays nourished, receiving all of the nutrients it needs to function at an optimal level. In addition to teaching patients how to lose weight the healthy way, we help our patients adopt a new lifestyle and relationship to food, effectively keeping the weight off for good.

By teaching our patients how to get all of the daily calories they need from whole foods like fresh vegetables and fruits, unprocessed meats and dairy, and whole grains, we ensure our patients' bodies receive all of the nutrients essential to living a healthy, fit life. At Dr. Lee's Spine Center, weight loss counseling patients learn about eating right for the benefit of overall health in addition to dropping pounds.

Additional Benefits of Weight Loss at Dr. Lee's Spine Center

In addition to looking great, improving self-esteem, and eating right, weight loss counseling will also make you feel better by relieving your spine and musculoskeletal system of the pressure caused by extra pounds. Weight loss and nutritional counseling complement your regular chiropractic care, like spinal adjustments, by compounding the benefits.

Spinal adjustments seek to align the spine by relieving pressure on the nerves, relaxing muscles, and reducing pain and inflammation with increased circulation. Weight loss takes extra pressure off of your body's spine, muscles, and other soft tissues, allowing your spine to more easily resume a healthy posture.

In addition to complementing spinal adjustments, weight loss imparts upon patients health benefits including lower blood pressure, reduced risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and a lower risk of developing a host of additional health problems.
