If you’re among the millions of American women who are struggling to lose weight … if it doesn’t seem to matter what diet you try or how dedicated you are to it … perhaps it’s time you tried something different.
“The first thing you need to do is throw the scales away and stop dieting,” said Justin Pearce, D.C., of Millpond Wellness Center, a Wellness Way affiliate. “Jumping on the scales every morning and stressing about the salad you had the night before is doing nothing to help you and it’s probably hurting you,” he said.
The secret to losing weight isn’t dieting. The secret is adopting a healthy lifestyle, one that addresses the real cause of your weight gain, balances your hormones, and gets your body back to functioning the way it was meant to function.
“To get to a healthy weight, don’t focus on the weight. Focus on doing things for your body that will help it achieve health,” Dr. Pearce said.
Millpond Wellness Center can help you achieve the healthy, balanced body you deserve by focusing on the roots of the problem. The Center’s holistic approach effectively and naturally addresses the real cause of being overweight. The team at Millpond Wellness Center works hand in hand with each patient, helping them every step along the way to better health.
“We are big believers in laboratory testing,” Dr. Pearce noted, “because laboratory testing reveals what your body needs, the foods and nutrients it craves, as well as things to which it may be negatively reacting, setting up inflammatory processes in the gut and throughout the body.”
Millpond’s holistic approach also:
• Looks at hormone balance to identify those that are out of balance and bring them back into balance.
• Assesses and addresses the underlying and root causes of overweight
• Educates patients about their own bodies, something that neither modern medicine or the public-school systems do well.
• Works with patients to better manage conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, autoimmune disorders and other chronic issues.
• Identifies food sensitivities – many of which you may not even realize you have – that may be impacting your overall health.
More than 30 percent of the nation’s adults are overweight, Dr. Pearce noted, and the issue is especially severe in Kentucky and surrounding states. “People talk a lot about wanting to lose weight, to get healthier, but at some point you have to do more than just talk about it. You have to do something.”
Millpond Wellness Center’s innovative program takes a comprehensive approach to weight management, focusing not on Body Mass Index (BMI), or pounds lost, but on how one feels, how the body functions.
“We don’t diet,” Dr. Pearce says. “People who go on diets – who move from the Atkins diet to paleo, to whatever the next fad is are doomed to failure. We focus on getting healthy because if you get healthy, you will lose weight. That’s not a maybe. That’s a definitely.”
Not only will you get healthy, you will feel better. You will have more energy. You will sleep better, you won’t need that Red Bull at 3 p.m. to make it through the rest of the day. Many people see tremendous improvements in their blood pressure, blood sugar and other important markers of overall health.
“Your body was bred for brilliance, amazingness for world-class performance, not to be sick, fat, overweight, diseased and drugged. If you’re living like that, it’s time to change. Time to do something different.”
