May 28, 2012 — Obese patients and others suffering from a variety of related health concerns in the St. Petersburg area of Florida can now benefit from qualified nutritional counseling in addition to chiropractic care at Seminole Chiropractic Wellness Center.
Randal Butch, DC, stated his concern for patients struggling with weight loss when he said, “We help our patients lose excess pounds and achieve successful long-term weight loss by offering them customized detox plans as part of our nutritional counseling program. Our chiropractic care also provides relief for weight-related discomfort and injuries.”
Patients can benefit from Butch’s counseling services on the topics of proper diet and nutrition. Any excess weight causes stress and strain on the body’s internal organs, as well as its muscles and skeletal structure. In order to lose weight and acquire better health, it is important to lose those excess pounds and keep them off.
Seminole Chiropractic Wellness Center patients can expect a comprehensive discussion about medical history and lifestyle, followed by an exam upon their first consultation with Butch. He factors in different personal health information to develop the most relevant, personalized plan to meet patient’s weight loss goals and to improve diet habits. A customized wellness plan helps the patient focus on making better and healthier choices in his or her diet. The plan also addresses other important components for success, such as the best nutritional supplements to take, ways to avoid or relieve stress, and strategies to lose weight and keep it under control.
Butch takes a strong stand against fad diets or behaviors that actually contribute to poor health and failed efforts to lose weight and keep it off. He’s said, “Slimmer does not always means healthier. It is not wise for patients to starve themselves by following these ‘fad’ or ‘crash’ diets that do more harm than good.”
In some cases, Butch will recommend that an obese patient follows a healthy detox plan, which will help flush out toxins from the body, preparing it for a new and healthier caloric intake. Along with this plan will be information about portion control and nutritious food choices, as well as foods to definitely avoid. Butch also includes in the plan recommendations for exercises and lifestyle coaching.
Butch has been a licensed chiropractor since 1987. In addition to his counseling services focused on diet and nutrition, he primarily uses the Palmer technique of chiropractic methods, which includes hands-on procedures such as adjustments and spinal manipulations, massage therapy, and physical therapy or physiotherapy.
