Healthy Weight Loss

I was overweight in my youth. It was difficult due to the teasing and criticism I received, but it also gave me valuable insight into what it’s like to be overweight. Even more importantly, it led me to meet a wonderful German doctor who became something of a mentor. He taught me the importance of good nutrition and proper dietary choices. These critical life lessons have stayed with me and now they drive my desire to help others who have weight problems.

As a chiropractor who takes a holistic view of treating the body, mind and spirit, I know how important it is that all aspects of the self remain in harmony. Being overweight often throws this balance off-kilter because it leads to health risks and can diminish our sense of self-worth. Controlling these factors by maintaining a healthy weight is an important goal. You and I can work on achieving this objective together.

As part of my practice, I offer weight loss assistance through an exclusive system that is targeted to chiropractors. A key part of the program is ChiroThin, a natural dietary supplement that contains an array of nutritional ingredients that are well known to aid in fatty acid transportation and fatty acid metabolism, provide blood sugar stabilization, and increase metabolism and detoxification. When ChiroThin is paired with healthy and specific amounts of anti-inflammatory foods with a low glycemic index, your body is more efficient at converting stored fat into energy. And, as everyone knows, burned fat equals weight loss.

The Process

Dr Ann Miller 468 S. Pearl Street, Suite D Canandaigua, NY 14424 585-396-0527 42.877532, -77.284396 http://drannmiller.com/

While undergoing the six-week program, each patient is seen on a weekly basis. During these visits, we discuss their overall health, adherence to the diet, and any struggles or challenges they may be dealing with. Participants are then weighed and an eight-point body measurement is taken to calculate their body mass index (BMI). There is also a blood pressure check at each visit. Based on all of these findings, patients are given detailed information about what they need to do for the upcoming week.

Throughout the program, the participant consumes between 24 and 30 ounces of nutrient-dense low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods each day. The ChiroThin system falls well within the accepted standards for very low calorie diets (VLCDs), as established by scientific data. These parameters include: doctor supervision, time on VLCD, dietary modifications, behavioral modifications, nutritional supplementation, and exercise as indicated.

At the end of the six-weeks, patients are provided with strategies to help them increase their chances of long-term weight loss success. A significant factor in this is continued healthy eating.


Here are some of the health complications that come from being overweight or obese.

Coronary Heart Disease. Being overweight increases your risk for coronary heart disease (CHD), which is caused by the buildup of plaque in the coronary arteries. Plaque can restrict or totally block the vessels and decrease blood flow to the heart, leading to angina or a heart attack.

Heart Failure. In some obese people the heart can’t pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs, this is known as heart failure.

High Blood Pressure. Elevated blood pressure can damage the body in a variety of ways. Losing weight is a common way to lower blood pressure.

Stroke. A blood clot can form from a broken piece of plaque. If the clot travels to the brain it can block the flow of blood and oxygen producing a stroke.

Type 2 Diabetes. With this form of diabetes, a person’s blood sugar level is too high and the body can’t regulate it. Being overweight is a major contributing factor to Type 2 Diabetes, which is a leading cause of early death, CHD, stroke, kidney disease and blindness.

High Cholesterol. Overweight or obese individuals commonly have high levels of triglycerides and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and low levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol. These factors raise the risk of CHD.

Metabolic Syndrome. This is actually a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke. These risk factors can present alone but commonly appear together. The presence of any three factors leads to a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome.

  • Abdominal obesity. Having a “spare tire” around your waist increases the risk of CHD.
  • A triglyceride level that is higher than normal.
  • An HDL cholesterol level that is lower than normal.
  • Elevated blood pressure.
  • Higher than normal fasting blood sugar.

Cancer. Being overweight or obese increases your risk for colon, breast, endometrial and gallbladder cancers.

Osteoarthritis. This common joint problem can be exacerbated by extra weight, leading to increased low back, hip and knee pain.

Sleep Apnea. Being overweight or obese increases the chances of developing this sleep disorder, which is characterized by pauses in breathing or taking shallow breaths.

Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome. Some obese people suffer from OHS, which results in poor breathing leading to too much carbon dioxide in the blood and too little oxygen. This is a serious condition that can even be fatal.

Reproductive Problems. Obesity can cause menstrual issues and infertility in women.

Gallstones. These hard pieces of stone-like material (mostly made of cholesterol) form in the gallbladder and can result in stomach or back pain.
