The HCG Diet
While hormone decline is often the culprit for weight gain, other factors such as metabolic issues, poor diet, lack of exercise, and stress can lead to obesity. The HCG Diet can help men and women to overcome obesity, despite the cause that lead to their obesity. This therapy involves the use of Human Chorionic Gonadoptropin, which is a hormone that women produce during pregnancy. This hormone taps into locked away fat stores to help a fetus obtain the nutrients it needs if the mother cannot take in enough nutrition from food, and in a person that is not pregnant, it works the same way. The HCG causes the body to break down fat for fuel when a person stays on a low calorie diet, which propels rapid weight loss.
Chiropractic adjustments can help you safely eradicate your back pain. The unique aspect of adjusting is the direct stimulation of mechanoreceptors, using mechanical pressure. Patients often hear a small popping or cracking sound in their back with adjustments, and this occurs when spinal joints are stretched out and the joint itself opens and the shifting air causes the cracking sound. After adjustments, patients report a remarkable increase in their ability to move their lower back. Even though your muscles may remain sore or tight, the range of motion in your spine is vastly improved.
Whether you’re 40 or 75, the Collagenizer can help you look younger in a very short amount of time. This is a simple, safe, and effective solution for those telltale signs of aging, and the complete treatment takes only 15-20 short minutes. The Collagenizer helps decrease fine lines by driving the special pharmaceutical grade collagen serum underneath your skin, and thereby erasing those fine lines almost immediately. The collagen serum is all-natural and not harmful to you in any way, and the benefits of using it includes revitalizing your skin and keeping it healthy, while reducing the occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles.
Ionized Alkalized Water
Alkaline water has been shown in studies to hydrate better than plain water. With a water ionizer, you get the perfect water for health, alkaline water that is pH balanced, hydrating, and purified of chlorine and its byproducts. Recent research reveals that drinking chlorinated water is associated with a significantly higher risk of developing colon tumors. A water ionizer protects you from chlorine.
Ion Cleanse Detox
Rid yourself of the toxins that enter your body through the air, water, food, and stress that is taken in. The EB-Pro ion therapy system is designed to help enhance your body’s natural detoxification process. Impurities will release when patients place their hands or feet in a saline and mineral solution and direct current creates an electromagnetic ionic field to force these toxins to exit. Healthy individuals can expect to feel lighter and experience a greater sense of well being from each Ion Cleanse session. Many people with pain, edema, gout and swollen or deteriorating joints report considerable symptomatic relief from Ion Cleanse sessions.
The expertise of Doctor Shepherd of Parker Wellness Centers is in checking your child’s spine for misalignments that impair their nervous system function, therefore affecting their overall body function.
The bones of their spine, the vertebrae, house and protect their spinal cord. Their spinal cord is an extension of their brain and carries information from their brain to their body parts and back to their brain again. Subluxations interfere with their nerves’ ability to transmit this vital information. Their nerve system controls and coordinates the function of all the systems in their body including their circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, elimination, and immune systems. Any aspect of their health may be impaired by this nerve interference.
