Chiropractic Care For Weight Loss –Chiropractors in Longmont

Weight Loss Chiropractic LongmontTis the season!  Tis the season for family and loved ones.  Tis the season for giving, celebrating, shopping, and indulging.  And indulging some more.  Invariably the holiday season officially ends when resolutions have been made–and the number one resolution year after year?  Lose weight!  Did you know that chiropractic care can help with weight loss?  Weight loss experts have long advocated for a complete approach when taking on a new weight loss regimen.   We suggest starting with a call to your chiropractor in Longmont!

Obviously the mutli-dimensional approach would include a nutritional overhaul and a commitment to regular exercise.  Both are critical.  But, they work much better by adding another dimension—chiropractic care.  Chiropractors make great weight loss advocates and whole healing allies!    A good chiropractor knows the entire body (and mind) is connected and must be treated as an entire system. We offer more than just chiropractic adjustments.  We offer an excellent support system for your lifetime of health and wellness.  Our goal is to help you be the healthiest version of you!

How does chiropractic care help with weight loss?

  1. Subluxations of the spine can actually be a major contributor to weigh gain or the inability to lose weight even with diet and exercise. Remember that the spinal column is just a big information highway for your body. Any spinal misalignments will impair the signals controlling things like hunger.
  1. Pain can also keep many people from starting or maintaining an exercise program which, as we mentioned earlier, is critical for weight loss success and overall health. Spinal misalignment often results in chronic pain, discomfort, fatigue, and decreased range of motion.  This can make it very difficult to start an exercise plan, much less continue with it long term.  Chiropractic adjustments are the most effective way to get you pain free. Even if you manage to gain some exercise momentum you might end up feeling back pain, neck or shoulder pain, or other pain simply from the new routine itself.  Chiropractic care can be just the thing to get and keep you pain free before, during, and even AFTER workouts (a chiropractic visit can be such a great relaxer post workout!).  An added bonus of regular chiropractic care in conjunction with an exercise program is that a well trained and experienced practitioner will be able to spot any injuries or potential injuries right away.
  1. Don’t waste all your efforts in the kitchen by not even absorbing the nutritional benefit of your carefully constructed meal! Did you know that a misaligned spine can keep your body from effectively absorbing nutrients? That information alone is worth a regular spinal adjustment when you think of all the money we spend on quality foods and supplements.
  1. Losing weight will also shift your center of gravity thereby shifting the demands placed on various parts of your body from feet up to neck. Regular adjustments can keep your joints and spine aligned as your body shifts and changes.

Chiropractic assisted weight loss programs are a superior method because we utilize a non-invasive, holistic, and pill free choice to your goal.  No fad diets or programs here!  We look to a long term lifestyle solution to get you to a healthier, happier you.

Dr Jess at Café of Life Chiropractic in Longmont has a passion for helping people of all ages.  She is devoted to promoting health, wellness, and life balance.  If you want to kick start 2016 with a wellness or weight loss plan, make a chiropractic appointment today.  We will get you ready both physically and mentally to tackle this challenge and realize your goals.

Café of Life Chiropractic In Longmont – Happy Halloween

Family Chiropractor LongmontIt’s that time of year again—candy, candy, and more candy.  Oh…and costumes.  Café of Life Chiropractic in Longmont wishes everyone a fun, safe, and healthy Halloween!

Halloween can be such a fun and exciting holiday for families.  But it certainly doesn’t mean you need a candy induced coma. Dr Jessica truly believes in not just spinal health but overall health and wellness and that includes what we choose to take into our bodies–sugar. She is a family chiropractor who cares.

Sugar is known for its links to weight gain and tooth decay, but it has also been linked to heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, liver disease, and metabolic disorders. Sugar gets a bad rap because we tend to eat too much of it! Excess sugar can take a serious toll on your health in the long run.

But Dr Jessica is also a realist and a mother of some very fun loving boys herself.  As a skilled chiropractor and health advocate she suggests a more “livable” solution.  Instead of depriving your kids (or yourself!) of all sugar and sweets, try placing limits on consumption.  The occasional indulgence is not only acceptable but much more realistic, and even good for the soul.

If you establish a healthy lifestyle that combines fresh, nutritious foods, with regular moderate exercise, and spinal adjustments on a regular basis, you will naturally keep your sugar consumption to a minimum.  You’ll be prepared for a sugar focused holiday like Halloween and be kind to yourself about your small indulgence and move forward in health.

If having loads of candy around makes it difficult, plan ahead to keep only a few small pieces and have the rest donated, exchanged at a candy buy-back, or simply thrown out!  Turn the focus to creative costume ideas, holiday games, harvest festivals, pumpkin carving contests, and other non-food related fun!

Does Halloween, and the upcoming holiday rush, wreak havoc on your stress levels?  Come into Café of Life in Longmont for a chiropractic adjustment or massage to keep you in top physical health through this holiday season. Getting a spinal adjustment and working out tight, sore muscles can lead to decrease stress, better sleep, an increase in energy, and a general feeling of overall health and well-being.

Chiropractic Care in the News

Gallup released a study this week showing that the majority of people in the U.S. say chiropractic care works.  This really is the first large-scale survey to date that measures the perceptions and experiences with chiropractors and chiropractic care in general.  More than 33 million people in the U.S. sought chiropractic care last year.  Chiropractic care can decrease or completely relieve pain, improve physical function, motion, and even improve your quality of life.

Dr. Jessica Thompson chose the chiropractic field because of its whole body benefits of health and well-being—the body has an amazing ability to heal and a chiropractor’s job is to facilitate that. The popularity of chiropractic care is clearly on the rise and is projected to grow as more and more people look for health solutions that have eluded them time and again.  Many even consider chiropractic practitioners main stream. In fact, chiropractic care is commonly reimbursed by insurance companies.  It is a great complementary health approach to any lifestyle.  Chiropractic care is both safe and effective but it’s also applied using different methods depending on the patient’s individual needs and comfort levels.  Chiropractic is more than cracking and twisting.

If you are curious about what goes on during a chiropractic appointment we urge you to visit us and see just what we can do for you.  Visit the Café of Life office in Longmont and meet Dr. Jessica in person. She truly cares for each of her clients and wants only to improve quality of life through unlocking our body’s innate health potential.  Rest assured that she is always up to date on the latest chiropractic techniques, has state of the art equipment, and provides a peaceful and welcoming environment.

As a mom, if you deal with these 2 things, you HAVE to be getting adjusted.

Mother's Day Card

The 2 Reasons mothers need to be adjusted

  1. STRESS:  Stress in all forms wreaks havoc on our nervous system and moms know this all too well!   With crazy busy schedules from your day job to your evening job of caring for the children and running them from place to place, sitting all day at your job then driving, carrying heavy bags and/or children….all of this can take a huge toll on the nervous system.  Regular chiropractic adjustments are an efficient and easy way to calm the nervous system down.  Here at the Cafe of Life in Longmont,we make it it our goal to make it easy for you to swing by and get a chiropractic adjustment in between all of your daily running  around.  Kids are always welcome in our Longmont chiropractic clinic or just pop by BEFORE you get them for a relaxing few minutes to yourself.   We make it possible for you to make it through the rest of your day by resetting your nervous system with an adjustment.
  2. PAIN:  Aches and Pains are not just a fact of life and they are certainly NOT  normal!  Most moms think they  have to just deal with the back aches and shoulder and neck aches, but here at the Cafe of Life Chiropractic and Massage studio we don’t subscribe to that idea.   Aches and pains are a way of telling you that something is not quite right.   Pain is your body’s signal that something is wrong, and often times aches and pains go away when you make getting a chiropractic adjustment  part of your routine.
 With all the daily stresses of being a mother,  regular chiropractic adjustments and/or  massage can reduce stress as well as to help your body and mind cope better.   Here at the Cafe of Life Chiropractic and Massage Studio in Longmont Colorado we see lots of busy moms and moms-to-be.   We make it convenient for you to come get adjusted we try to make it less than a 15 minute process from the time you walk in to the time you leave so that you can fit this healthy habit into your daily routine. Make sure to take that time to maintain your spinal and nervous system health.  It is  imperative for you to be healthy  for you to be the best mom  you can be.

 

Treat the mom in your life right with one of our massage specials. There is no better way to show your appreciation for the woman who does so much for you than by giving her a massage, or two or three or four!

Do You Suffer From News-Induced Stress?

“Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.” That famous quote by Mark Twain could be interpreted several ways. The way that I take it is that some days are filled with so much information about current events that it’s overwhelming.
