How Chiropractic Adjustments Promote Weight Loss

check out reflectionChiropractic adjustments rarely receive recognition for their ability to assist in weight loss. However, Chiropractic adjustments directly change body chemistry, a result proven to be a major factor in helping both men and women lose weight.

Sound science behind the benefits of an adjustment clearly shows the connection between spinal health and weight loss.  The chiropractic adjustment has the most powerful effect on your nervous system, and therefore the function of your hormones and metabolism.

Losing Body Fat is a Challenge That Connects With Overall Body Function

Losing body fat while gaining and keeping muscle revolves around proper body chemistry. Balancing body chemistry derives from balancing hormones.

A Chiropractic adjustment not only balances body hormones but also creates an overall improved state of wellness.

How Adjustments Affect Your Hormones

The spine directly interacts with the part of the brain (hypothalamus) that controls all major hormones, including those that deal with weight loss and muscle gain. Interference occurs within the central nervous system whenever a spinal vertebra misaligns or moves incorrectly, resulting in a vertebral subluxation. The interference triggers an increase in stress hormones and a decrease in growth hormones through a stimulated hypothalamus.

This alteration in stress hormones prevents the body’s ability to reduce amino acid breakdown and recycle amino acids from the blood.  Since amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and muscle, subluxation will have a significant effect on your weight loss goals if not corrected.

The breakdown of muscle and the loss of fat are all mediated by hormones. Chiropractic adjustments help balance good hormones and decrease bad hormones through the spine’s direct relationship with the brain

No amount of protein that can be consumed in the form of food, powders, shakes, or bars can force the body to spare muscle or manipulate fat stores when hormones are out of balance.

Multiple lifestyle factors also alter the balance of body chemistry, forcing the loss of muscle and accumulation of fat. Poor spinal health exists as one major example often overlooked by almost every medical doctor, nutritionist, trainer, or weight loss strategist.

So if you have not had an exam and x-rays of your spine in the last 6 months or you have family who has still not been checked for subluxation now is the best time to get your spine checked.  This is the test that no other doctor will do and can have the most significant effect on your overall health!

Chiropractic Adjustments May Make Fat Loss Easier

Many people who begin receiving Chiropractic adjustments find it easier to lose fat and gain muscle using their previously established regimen of diet and exercise. Chiropractic adjustments facilitate changes in body chemistry, which can only be balanced within the nervous system. Creating a subluxation-free environment empowers the body to balance hormones and improve overall wellness from the inside out.
