How Can I Manage My Weight in a Healthy, Natural Way?
Our weight management program at Orr Chiropractic includes clinical tests that can help us evaluate your current state of health and determine what whole food supplement support, dietary changes, or detoxification support may benefit you. We believe that nutrition should be individualized to meet each patient’s needs. We strive to ensure that our patients receive whole body support to relieve pain, restore your wellness, and regain your healthy lifestyle.
Americans are overfed and undernourished. As a nation we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. In addition, we have become a culture that is very focused on the number on the scale, versus our feeling of health. Our weight management program doesn’t just focus on lowering the number on the scale, but rather, we help you feel better, improve energy and sleep, lose the weight the right way, and improve your overall quality of life naturally.
Our Natural Solutions for Losing Weight by Gaining Nutritional Value
If the human body is given the proper nutrients, it has the amazing ability to repair and heal itself.
Dr. Royal Lee (founder of Standard Process Supplements) challenged common scientific beliefs in the 1940’s by choosing a holistic approach of providing nutrients though whole foods. His goal was to provide nutrients as they are found in nature so their potency and efficacy would be realized. Dr. Lee believed that when nutrients remained intact and are not split from their natural associated synergists (both known and unknown) then the bioactivity was markedly enhanced over the synthetic vitamins. Following this philosophy, even a small amount of a whole food concentrate will offer enhanced nutrition when compared to a synthetic or fractionated vitamin. Therefore, one should look at the source rather than the quantity of nutrients on product labels.
At Orr Chiropractic Center of Central Ohio, we support The Purification Program by Standard Process. This 21-day program helps you purify, nourish and maintain a healthy body and weight by utilizing whole food supplements; whole, organic, and unprocessed food; and water to cleanse the body so you can have more energy, maintain a healthy weight and improve your digestion and elimination.
Knowing Your Nutritional Needs with Orr Chiropractic
Each patient that is seeking nutritional advice from Orr Chiropractic Center is asked to fill out a questionnaire that gives us insight into your current nutritional level and your goals for the future. We then run a number of tests to give you more information on how to best achieve your goal.
Scale weight is not an indicator of an individual’s fat percentage or health level. At our office we will analyze your body composition, measuring the amount of lean tissue compared to fat. This analysis can better determine how much muscle and fat have been lost or gained over time as the result of nutrition, whole food supplements, exercise or pharmaceutical prescription and help us to make a continuously more effective plan for you.
We want to see your percentage of body fat come down to a healthy, natural level. Starvation diets or dietary supplement shakes actually harm your body by cannibalizing your muscle tissue and reducing the body’s metabolic rate that should have helped with proper nutrient absorption. Our Pataskala, OH office will ensure you have all the tools you need to build a healthy weight management plan.
Using Our Bio Impedance Analysis at Orr Chiropractic Center
Bio Impedance Analysis is a scientifically validated in-office test we use to assess:
1. Body composition relating to body fat, lean body mass (organs and muscles), and extra cellular mass.
2. Total body hydration status and the percentage of fluid both inside and outside of your cells, which helps to determine toxicity levels.
3. And cellular capacitance, which is your cells ability to hold an electrical charge.
This device is much more accurate in gathering health information than the scales that you simply stand on. With this information, we can get a good overall indicator of your health on a cellular level. The test is non-invasive, pain-free and takes only a few minutes to gather the information that can be vital to understanding your cellular health status.
