Supervised Weight Loss Program

Weight Loss Program Details

What is ChiroThin and how does it work?
ChiroThin™ is a natural dietary supplement. Its formula, developed by ChiroNutraceutical, contains a host of nutritional ingredients that are well known to aid in fatty acid transportation, fatty acid metabolism, and blood sugar stabilization, as well as increase metabolism and detoxification. When ChiroThin is combined with healthy and specific amounts of anti-inflammatory foods with a low glycemic index, your body will be more efficient at converting stored fat into energy. In general, ChiroThin allows the body to more efficiently metabolize fat and use it as energy when an individual consumes fewer calories than he or she burns in a given period of time. ChiroNutraceutical has specially designed the ChiroThin formula to include specific amounts of amino acids, vitamins, and cell salts for further added benefits. Additionally, the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program includes dietary and behavioral modification guidance, as well as a strategy to help maintain a long-term weight loss.

ChiroThin™ Safety Guidelines
The ChiroThin™ Program is doctor supervised. Each participant has a follow-up visit with the supervising doctor on a weekly basis. During these doctor-patient encounters, patients will answer questions regarding their overall health, their adherence to the diet, and any struggles or challenges they may be experiencing. Participants are then weighed, receive an 8-point body measurement, and their blood pressure is taken. Doctors use this data to calculate each patient’s BMI. Based on all of this information, participants are then given detailed information and instruction as it pertains to what they need to do for the upcoming week.
All patients are prescreened for complicating factors, poor prognostic indicators, and contraindication. If the screening reveals a complicating factor or poor prognostic indicator, a doctor will discuss the concern with the potential participant.
Depending on the severity of the projected clinical implications of the complicating factor or poor prognostic indicator, a person may be prohibited from undergoing the program.
If a potential participant’s past medical history contains any contraindications, the participant is prohibited from undergoing the program.
The ChiroThin™ Program is based on a low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory (LGAI) diet.
The ChiroThin Program includes the consumption of complex carbohydrates and is not a “protein-only” program. Complex carbohydrates prevent excessive ketosis, hyperuricemia, diuresis, electrolyte loss, refeeding edema, and they may improve muscular endurance.
While undergoing the six-week program, the participant consumes between twenty-four and thirty ounces of nutrient-dense, low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods per day.
The nutritional support formula is specifically developed to aid in fatty acid metabolism, suppressing hunger and cravings, stabilizing blood sugar, and in the mild detoxification of the body.
The program is six weeks in duration and falls well within the accepted standards for weight loss as established by scientific data. These parameters include: doctor supervision, time on a weight loss program, dietary modifications, behavioral modifications, nutritional supplementation, and, when indicated, exercise.
The program provides a “re-feeding” component during which participants transition back to a “normal” diet composed of LGAI foods.
Participants are provided with guidelines, strategies, and tools to help them increase their chances of long-term weight loss success. These tools are based on each patient’s BMR, activity level, appropriate exercise, and continued healthy nutritional consumption.

Where is ChiroThin™ manufactured, and what are the quality control guidelines?
In order to maintain the highest standards for our ingredients and manufacturing, all of ChiroNutraceutical’s products use only 100% United States derived, harvested, and combined ingredients. Our manufacturing facilities are located in the United States, and are FDA certified. FDA inspections ensure compliance with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) for your safety. Unlike many nutritional companies, ChiroNutraceutical holds its own individual FDA Establishment Number.

What sets ChiroNutraceutical’s™ products apart from the rest?
Unlike lower-grade products, you will not find our products being sold online or by other companies. We have worked with our formulation team to create only top-shelf nutritional dietary supplements. We do not import any ingredients from overseas. The ChiroThin formula is proprietary and uses nothing but high-grade ingredients. Our unique formula has many advantages, such as added natural appetite suppressants, energy supplements, detoxification, lean muscle protection, and more. This carefully designed formulation optimizes the weight loss plan. Patients frequently report to us that they feel much better and have fewer hunger issues while taking the ChiroThin nutritional support formula than when they had tried other weight loss programs.

Chiropractic Acupuncture:

Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles through a person's skin at specific points on the body, to various depths. Research suggests that it can help relieve pain, and it is used for a wide range of other complaints.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting needles at certain points of the body.

Acupuncture involves inserting needles at certain points of the body.

A certified acupuncturist/ chiropractic acupuncture physician will insert needles into a person's body with the aim of balancing their energy. This, it is claimed, can help boost wellbeing and may cure some illnesses. Conditions it is used for include different kinds of pain, such as headachesblood pressure problems, and whooping cough, among others.

How does it work?

Traditional Chinese medicine explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of "yin" and "yang" of the life force known as "qi," pronounced "chi." Illness is said to be the consequence of an imbalance of the forces.

Qi is said to flow through meridians, or pathways, in the human body. These meridiens and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture points in the body. Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations is said to bring the energy flow back into proper balance. There is no scientific proof that the meridians or acupuncture points exist, and it is hard to prove that they either do or do not, but numerous studies suggest that acupuncture works for some conditions.

Some experts have used neuroscience to explain acupuncture. Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body's natural painkillers.

It is difficult to set up investigations using proper scientific controls, because of the invasive nature of acupuncture. In a clinical study, a control group would have to undergo sham treatment, or a placebo, for results to be compared with those of genuine acupuncture.

Some studies have concluded that acupuncture offers similar benefits to a patient as a placebo, but others have indicated that there are some real benefits.

Uses

Research carried out in Germany has shown that acupuncture may help relieve tension headaches and migraines.

The NCCIH note that it has been proven to help in cases of:

·         low back pain

·         neck pain

·         osteoarthritis

·         knee pain

·         headache and migraine

 

In 2003, the World Health Organization (WHO) listed a number of conditions in which they say acupuncture has been proven effective.

These include:

·         high and low blood pressure

·         chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting

·         some gastric conditions, including peptic ulcer

·         painful periods

·         dysentery

·         allergic rhinitis

·         facial pain

·         morning sickness

·         rheumatoid arthritis

·         sprains

·         tennis elbow

·         sciatica

·         dental pain

·         reducing the risk of stroke

·         inducing labor

Other conditions for which the WHO say that acupuncture may help but more evidence is needed include:

·         fibromyalgia

·         neuralgia

·         post-operative convalescence

·         substance, tobacco and alcohol dependence

·         spine pain

·         stiff neck

·         vascular dementia

·         whooping cough, or pertussis

·         Tourette syndrome

The WHO also suggest that it may help treat a number of infections, including some urinary tract infections and epidemic hemorrhagic fever.

They point out, however, that "only national health authorities can determine the diseases, symptoms, and conditions for which acupuncture treatment can be recommended."

Benefits

Acupuncture can be beneficial in that:

·         Performed correctly, it is safe.

·         There are very few side effects.

·         It can be effectively combined with other treatments.

·         It can control some types of pain.

·         It may help patients for whom pain medications are not suitable.

What to expect

According to traditional Chinese medical theory, acupuncture points are located on meridians, through which vital energy runs. This energy is known as "qi" or "chi."

An acupuncturist will examine the patient and assess their condition, insert one or more thin, sterile needles, and offer advice on self-care or other complementary therapies, such as Chinese herbs.

The patient will be asked to lie down on their back, front, or one side, depending on where the needles are to be inserted. The acupuncturist should use single-use, disposable, sterile needles. As each needle is inserted, the patient may feel a very brief stinging or tingling sensation.

After the needle is inserted, there is occasionally a dull ache at the base of the needle that then subsides. Acupuncture is usually relatively painless.

Sometimes the needles are heated or stimulated with electricity after insertion.

The needles will stay in place for between 5 and 30 minutes.

The number of treatments needed depend on the individual. A person with a chronic condition may need one to two treatments a week over several months. An acute problem normally improves after 8 to 12 sessions.

Risks

All therapies have risks as well as benefits.

The possible risks of acupuncture are:

·         It is dangerous if a patient has a bleeding disorder or takes blood thinners.

·         Bleeding, bruising, and soreness may occur at the insertion sites.

·         Unsterilized needles may infect the patient.

·         In rare cases, a needle may break and damage an internal organ.

·         When inserted deeply into the chest or upper back, there is a risk of collapsed lung, but this is very rare.

The United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulate acupuncture needles as medical devices. Their manufacture and labelling needs to meet certain standards. The needles must be sterile, nontoxic, and labelled for one use only, by a licensed practitioner.

As with any complementary therapy, it is advisable to use it alongside conventional treatments in cases of chronic or severe illness.

Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) is a healing technology that locates areas of the animal’s nervous system that has fallen out of communication, and re-establishes neuronal communication and thus induces healing. VOM is singularly the most simple, effective and safe healing modality in veterinary care to date. For the VOM practitioner it is an exquisitely objective, fast and easy to apply technology that takes a minimum amount of time to master and whose scope of application appears has yet to be fully appreciated.

What Can VOM Treat?

  • Acute and non-acute lameness
  • Progressive lameness
  • Hip Dysplasia-like syndromes
  • IV disc disease
  • Progressive myelopathies (“down in the rears” dogs)
  • Urinary and fecal incontinence
  • Unilateral lameness
  • Wobbler’s Disease
  • Diseases of the knee
  • Esophageal disease
  • Increased of decreased GI mobility disease
  • Digestive disorders
  • Performance problems
  • Behavioral problem
  • Agility dysfunction
  • Endocrine disease
  • Many more

How it Works

All chiropractic modalities have one thing in common in that they all reduce the vertebral subluxation complex by providing motion or force to the fixated or subluxated joint.

Spinal Injury = Neuronal Subluxation Syndrome = Pathological Read

Neuronal Subluxation + Motion (force) = Subluxation Reduced

So, if you put motion into a joint that is associated with a neuronal subluxation sign, a pathological read, you reduce the subluxation. It is that simple. All the various types of chiropractic techniqueshave this motion or force into the subluxated joint in common. VOM delivers its force with a hand-held device. It looks a bit like a spring-loaded doorstop. Your VOM practitioner has extensive references covering the research investigating the principles portrayed above and can provide them upon request. These references are replete in chiropractic journals.

Chiropractic “Listings” vs. VOM “Pathological Reads”

All chiropractic techniques (veterinary and human) rely on the chiropractic “listing” to determine the presence of a subluxation.
Through manual palpation a misplaced bone prominence or a taught and tender muscle may be discovered by a competent veterinary chiropractor whose patient is cooperative and relaxed.
This is a listing, an anatomical subluxation sign, and almost always is indicative of a neuronal subluxation syndrome.

Unfortunately, only 40% of all neuronal subluxations produce palpable anatomical subluxation signs. This means over half of all the animal’s subluxations will be overlooked if anatomical listings are used as a means to discover them.

The good news is that all neuronal subluxations produce “pathological reads”, and all these reads are obvious and easy to discover and reduce.

The goal of an adjustment in an animal is all the vertebral subluxations in that animal are reduced. Subluxation reduction based on anatomical listings will get approximately half of the total neurological subluxations present in the animal.

Subluxation reduction based on pathological reads will get them all, and will verify they have been reduced. Fast, easy, effective.
