Chico Chiropractor Finds Nutritional Lab Testing & Detox Vital to Successful Weight Loss

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 5, 2012) - Masula Chiropractic Neurology and Family Wellness announced that the practice has had significant success helping patients lose weight through a combination of nutritional testing and detoxification diets. The center's detox diet is designed to remove chemicals and environmental toxins that can build up in the body over time. The practice also supports weight management and long-term weight loss through its nutritional lab testing program. In addition to weight loss support, the Chico chiropractor provides spinal decompression therapy, neuropathology and physiotherapy for natural back pain management and injury recovery.

Chico chiropractor Dr. Larry Masula stated that at his practice, Masula Chiropractic Neurology and Family Wellness, they provide nutritional detox and testing services because they aid in weight loss plans.

According to the wellness doctor, these services help remove toxins from the body while identifying missing nutrients. Together with chiropractic care, Dr. Masula says the wellness care can help bring balance back to the body.

"Every day, from the air we breathe to the food we eat, our bodies are bombarded with environmental toxins," said Dr. Masula. "It's no surprise then that many patients are struggling with weight management, fatigue, stress and illness. The liver and kidneys naturally flush out toxins, but when our bodies become overloaded, these organs begin to suffer. Toxins then build up in our bloodstreams, affecting other organs and our metabolism."

Dr. Masula identifies food packed with preservatives and artificial ingredients, as well as indoor and outdoor air pollutants, as primary causes for toxin build up. According to Dr. Masula, symptoms of toxin overload include fatigue, joint pain, mood swings, insomnia and low-grade illness.

"Many of our patients complain of exhaustion and pain, saying that they just don't feel like themselves anymore," said Dr. Masula. "When the body is overloaded, the internal organs can no longer function properly. Detoxification diets are a safe and effective process for removing toxins from the body. This also helps the body's metabolism 'reset' itself."

In conjunction with a detox program, Dr. Masula says that nutritional lab testing can help identify vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are missing from a patient's diet.

"How can we eat right when we don't know what our body needs?" said Dr. Masula. "This is why nutritional testing is so important. Every individual has unique needs, and nutritional testing helps to identify these needs. We will then use this information to recommend specific dietary adjustments. For patients struggling with weight gain, obesity, Type 2 Diabetes or heart disease, these recommendations can make a tremendous difference for overall health."

Dr. Masula stressed that detox diets and nutritional testing are part of an overall approach to whole body wellness. Neither method is designed as a 'quick-fix' or 'fad-diet,' but instead promote long-term well being.

"Our patients consistently tell us that our wellness program makes a tremendous difference in their lives," said Dr. Masula. "Patients have more energy, feel healthier, sleep better and experience less chronic pain."
