Are we overlooking potential help for those struggling with obesity?
With the epidemic now estimated to be costing the nation $147 billion annually, it’s a question that’s very much on the minds of health experts. And many, including lifestyle guru Shea Vaughn, are citing chiropractic care as a crucial part of overall wellness programs.
“Chiropractic care helps patients with many physical ailments. It also represents a proactive approach helping to prevent injury and relieve stress, while providing a positive influence on any individual’s mind, body and heart,” says the much-quoted author of “Breakthrough: The 5 Living Principles to Defeat Stress, Look Great & Find Total Well-Being.”
What’s more, doctors of chiropractic can also counsel patients on their diets – what to emphasize (fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans) and what to reduce (processed foods, sugar, soda and fats). “The key is to make consistent, small, positive changes,” says the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress’ Gerard W.
