Clinical Nutrition and Weight Loss Questions
How will you know what my body needs to lose weight and eat healthy?
Our Clinical Nutritionist, Dr. Justin Hunter [ bio ], will provide you with individualized nutrition consultations to determine the personal needs of your body and your wellness goals. All of our programs will begin with a health assessment and dietary analysis to evaluate your body’s current intake. Non-invasive testing will allow us to determine the best products to help balance your body and help you achieve your weight loss goals.
How quickly will I lose weight?
As with any healthy weight loss program, do not expect instant results – it takes time to healthily lose unwanted pounds. We will work with you to provide healthy and consistent weight loss.
Will I need to purchase pre-packaged food from you as part of my program?
No – our individualized weight loss programs focus on educating you on healthy diets. We will focus on providing you with the knowledge on the proper foods to purchase and not to purchase in order to lose weight and keep your body functioning efficiently. All bodies are different and no single program or food plan is right for everyone.
Why do I need to detox my body?
Almost everyone needs to cleanse and [ detoxify ] their body functions periodically. Our bodies generally maintain a balance between building, repairing, breaking down and eliminating. When we eat a diet high in fats, sugar, and refined foods, or consume chemicals such as caffeine, nicotine, alcohol and some prescription drugs, we can end up with a toxic overload that the body can’t handle without some help. Symptoms of toxicity can include headaches, fatigue, aches and pains, coughs, digestive problems, skin rashes, and immune weakness.
What detoxification products do you use?
Choosing the best detoxification program is an individualized decision. We will assess your body from the inside out to determine the best treatment program for you. We are more than happy to discuss the usage of specific programs upon your request.
What conditions does chiropractic care help treat?
Chiropractic care and rehabilitation can help with many conditions. A few of the most common reasons people obtain chiropractic care are to treat:• Headaches and migraines
• Hip and knee pain
• Back and neck pain
• Automobile injuries including whiplash
• Work injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tension neck syndrome, & llow back pain
• Sports injuries
• Surgery recovery
• Rotator cuff injuries
How long will it take for my pains to go away?
It truly depends on each individual. All [ chiropractic care ], [ massage therapy ] and other wellness treatment plans are completely customized for the individual, and each body responds differently to treatment. Some patients get results quickly, while others find their recovery takes several months or longer. Children often respond quickly, while adults with longstanding spinal problems heal more slowly. The healing process takes time.
Is chiropractic care safe?
Absolutely - [ chiropractic treatment ] is recognized as one of the safest types of health care in the world. Dozens of research studies have documented the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic care is also widely used as a complementary mode of care for a variety of conditions and diseases and to promote overall health and well-being.
Do I have to see my medical doctor before I see a chiropractor?
No. Doctors of Chiropractic, including Dr. Justin T. Hunter [ bio ]of Pure Health and Wellness, are primary health care providers. At the same time, we like to work hand-in-hand with your current physician to establish an effective and safe treatment plan for your body. Chiropractic care can help safely provide relief whether or not you are currently seeing another doctor.
Once I start chiropractic care, will I have to continue with treatment the rest of my life?
Once [ chiropractic care ] eliminates your pain and rehabilitates the injured tissues, we do recommend that you maintain a schedule of periodic check-ups. Prevention is the key to reducing recurrences of existing health conditions and minimizing new injuries in the future. So the answer is yes, we will suggest that you come back periodically, yet your overall health and wellness care is completely up to you. Just as a dentist recommends you have two cleanings a year, we would recommend regular chiropractic care, but it is completely your choice. Periodic chiropractic care helps minimize spinal and nerve stresses, reduces recurrences of old injuries, prevents new injuries from developing and minimizes degenerative processes, which enhances overall health and wellness.
Why should I get a massage?
[ Massage therapy ] can help alleviate discomfort associated with:
• Tight or painful muscles
• Effects of inactivity
• PregnancyHow often should I receive a massage?
This answer really depends on why you are receiving a [ massage ]. In some cases, weekly sessions are recommended to cope with some injury relief and to relieve chronic tightness. For those using massage therapy as preventative and relaxing care, once a month may suffice. We will work with you to develop the best plan of action to keep your body functioning at its best.
Do I need to know what type of massage I should get?
If you are a seasoned massage-receiver, we will gladly set up a massage appointment at your choosing. But if you have not had a massage before or are trying to heal pain, the staff at Pure Health and Wellness will help identify the best type of [ massage therapy ] for you.
How many acupuncture treatments will I need?
As with all our customized treatments programs, it really depends on your situation and how your body reacts. Each person is unique and the number of [ acupuncture ] treatments needed will vary. Among the determining factors are the type of condition, whether the condition is chronic or acute, and the vitality of the individual. We will work with you to determine the appropriate number of treatments necessary.
Will acupuncture hurt?
This is the most common question asked by patients when needles are used. When inserted, the fine, hair-thin needles give rise to a sensation which should only be a temporary mild discomfort at the most. At times a more intense sensation is experienced. This is thought to indicate the movement of Qi (energy) at the acupuncture point. Anna Nazos [ bio ], our licensed and certified acupuncturist will work with you to ensure complete comfort.
Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) Questions
How exactly does MSA work?
MSA testing uses the Galvanic Skin Response (similar to lie detectors) to measure electrical resistance at various points which represent the organs, glands and systems of the body. This combination of Chinese medicine and Western technology allows us to conduct an interview with the body - identifying imbalances in the energy flow and offering natural alternatives to achieve optimal health. By using the body’s energy field
[ Qi ] at skin level of the pre-determined acupuncture meridians, it is possible to analyze the energetic cause of physical problems.
What are meridians?
Meridians are channels of energy which flow through the body and are related to the organ system to which they flow.
Who really benefits from taking the MSA?
Truly everyone – it is non-invasive, virtually painless and safe for people of all ages. Whether you are looking to improve a pre-existing condition through natural means or wanting to take a proactive approach to your health, MSA testing is for you.
Supplements and Herbs Questions
Are supplements and herbs considered to be drugs, or prescribed medications?
No – they are natural dietary and nutritional supplements that allow your body to receive the nutrients it requires. Herbs and supplements undergo stringent quality control measures and are completely safe. We will work with you to establish the proper level of necessary herbs and supplements.
What form will my supplements and herbs come in?
It depends on what we feel is necessary for your body. Herbs and supplements are most commonly taken in pill, capsule, tablet or liquid form. The qualified staff at Pure Health and Wellness will work with you to ensure you are taking the form that is most comfortable and effective for your personal needs.
What is the difference between supplements and herbs?
Vitamin and mineral supplements are dietary supplements that provide your body with the necessary nutrients to help your body function smoothly. Herbs and herbal supplements have a medicinal purpose and generally support a specific area of your body’s health, such as the liver, bones or skin.
What exactly is homeopathy?
[ Homeopathy ] is a natural approach to medicine designed to stimulate the body's own healing processes in order to cure illnesses. When you are ill, your body produces symptoms, which is how we know that the body has recognized that something is wrong and is actively working to heal itself. This "natural regulator" is your body's auto-regulatory mechanism and it works to keep your body in balance - or in a state of homeostasis. Homeopathic medicines stimulate your body's homeostatic mechanism so your body heals itself by dealing with the sources of your symptoms.
What kind of conditions or diseases can be treated homeopathically?
[ Homeopathy ] is applicable to a broad range of conditions including acute inflammations, systemic imbalances and mental or emotional disturbances. The specific homeopathic treatment is not specific to a particular illness, but is directed at the complete underlying state of the person suffering from a condition or illness.
Will I experience side effects from taking homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted and do not contain large amounts of the original substance from which they are made. They do not have the toxic effects associated with many conventional medicines. We will work with you and your body’s individual needs to ensure the proper homeopathic remedies are chosen.
Can I take homeopathic remedies if I am also taking conventional medications?
Yes, this is possible and often very effective. When choosing the appropriate homeopathic remedies for your condition, the experienced staff at Pure Health and Wellness will take into account your entire medical condition to ensure only the safest and most effective remedies are prescribed.
