Birmingham Detox/Weight Loss Program Helps Patients Lose Weight, Manage Pain

BIRMINGHAM, Mich., Aug. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Birmingham Wellness Center in Birmingham, MI is raising awareness about the importance of nutritional counseling and detox for successful weight loss. According to chiropractor Dr. Jennifer Turnbull Bonde, detox and weight loss go hand-in-hand. When toxins build up in the body, they can stall weight loss and actually lead to weight gain. The wellness center offers BioElectrical Impedance analysis (BIA) to determine individual detox needs and support long-term weight loss.

Birmingham residents who are struggling to lose weight have a new ally in the battle of the bulge. Chiropractor Jennifer Bonde is helping patients kick-start weight loss through nutritional counseling.

"Whether our patients are struggling to lose weight or need help healing after an injury, nutritional counseling is a jump-start on their journey back to wellness," said Dr. Bonde. "Our detox/weight loss program helps reset the metabolism and builds a foundation for healthy living."

Birmingham Wellness Center provides BioElectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) and functional food consultations. The analysis reveals specifications of the body composition, including body fat and muscle mass, in order for the chiropractor to develop the right weight loss strategy for each patient.

"Many of our patients feel frustrated and overwhelmed with weight loss," said Dr. Bonde. "They've tried everything and nothing seems to be working. The problem may be toxin build up, which affects organ function and metabolism. BioElectrical Impedance Analysis helps us determine an individual's' body composition and unique detoxification needs."

Dr. Bonde and the entire wellness team work closely with each patient to develop a long-term plan for weight loss success. This starts with nutritional counseling, which helps empower patients to make positive dietary choices.

"Thanks to my upbringing, practicing a healthy diet is second nature," said Dr. Bonde. "I am happy to share my passion for wellness with the Birmingham community. The small decisions we make every day help us build a strong, healthy body. I educate patients about food intolerances and help patients understand their bodies' unique nutrition needs."

For example, Dr. Bonde says that some patients who struggle with chronic headaches may be experiencing this pain because of a food intolerance. Identifying this intolerance enhances overall health.

Nutritional counseling also helps patients overcome detrimental eating habits and avoid yo-yo dieting. "Without nutritional counseling, it's easy to fall back on bad habits," said Dr. Bonde. "This can lead to yo-yo dieting, which kills the metabolism and ultimately leads to weight gain."

Dr. Bonde also recommends dietary counseling as part of a pain management and injury rehabilitation program. According to the chiropractor, foods rich in antioxidants naturally reduce inflammation, which helps manage pain.

In addition to detox/weight loss assistance, Birmingham Wellness Center provides chiropractic care, postural analysis and whole body wellness care. The practice serves the Oakland County, Troy, Bloomfield, and Royal Oak communities.
