Lafayette Chiropractor Holds Weekly Nutrition and Weight Management Programs for the Public

LAFAYETTE, LA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Dr. John Sullivan, a Lafayette chiropractor for 25 years, leads a weekly weight management and nutrition class every Thursday night at 6:00 PM. The class, which is free and open to the public, is held at Dr. Sullivan's Independence Chiropractic clinic on Independence Boulevard. Dr. Sullivan says that instead of focusing on popular diets the way many other weight management programs do, his class centers on teaching people healthy diet and lifestyle changes they can maintain throughout their lives, both for weight loss and overall health improvement.

Dr. Sullivan says that his inspiration for the class is the famous quote by Hippocrates: "Let your food be your medicine." He says that good health often hinges not only what people eat, but the combination of foods they eat, and when they eat them. He cites several scientific studies on nutritional healing and examples of students and patients whose lives have drastically improved by making the suggested diet and lifestyle changes. People in the class have reportedly experienced an average weight loss of 30 pounds in as little as 3 months.

Although weight loss is a primary goal for many of his students, the Lafayette chiropractor explains that, "This class is really about finding out what your body needs to be the healthiest it can be, and then doing it. Of course, weight loss can make a person healthier, but unlike other diet and weight management programs that focus solely on weight loss, we teach people how food works in their bodies to accomplish all sorts of important wellness goals."

In addition to the weekly class, Dr. Sullivan encourages students to go through personalized nutrition counseling and health testing at the clinic. Dr. Sullivan knows how to stop the dependency on sugar and high fructose corn syrup that is the ultimate cause of such conditions as Heart Disease, Obesity, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and most inflammatory conditions. Dr. Sullivan has been a student of nutrition for over 40 years and is also a member of the Elite RKC (Russian Kettlebell Certified) Fitness Instructors. These are the instructors sought out by the Secret Service, FBI, SEAL team members and many other law enforcement and fire fighting personnel.

Proper eating is so important that RKC instructors believe there is no drug, supplement, therapy, hormone replacement or exercise program that will counteract a bad diet. Dr. Sullivan says, "I know what it's like to try all of the fad diets on the books and fail, so I have personally been where a lot of my students and patients are when they come to the class. My message is: don't give up hope! We provide the support and education people need to make truly positive and permanent changes in their lives."
