Weight Loss and Infrared Saunas Q & A

How does weight loss relate to chiropractic treatment?

There are many layers to chiropractic care and weight loss. The pain you’re experiencing could be what’s keeping you from exercising That pain could also increase with every pound you gain, further decreasing your mobility.

Chiropractic adjustments can relieve neuromuscular issues caused by obesity to improve mobility. When nerves of the spine are strained -- since they connect to the brain -- misinformation and faulty signals circulate throughout the body, which can affect when you experience hunger pangs and your ability to exercise self-control when eating.

What will Dr. Edmiston do for me?

What is infrared sauna?

Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Dr. Edmiston knows that infrared wave can penetrate deep into the joints, muscles, and tissues to release toxins, improve waste removal, and cellular purification. All of that is part of its anti-aging benefits.

Another advantage of an infrared sauna is that you can burn up to 600 calories while you relax. Since the body is working to cool itself, there’s a significant increase in heart rate and cardiac output, causing the body to burn more calories.
