Unless you are willing to risk your life to lose weight, please don’t take weight loss drugs. Remember Phen-phen? Taken off the market due to fatal pulmonary effects. Topamax (still on the market) side effects include: headaches, nausea, nervousness, anxiety, numbness and tingling in the skin, insomnia, and WEIGHT LOSS. At least this one doesn’t kill you. But is it worth it? Now we have the most recent recall of Abbot’s weight loss product Meridia which is now being taken off the market due to increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Of course, all these drugs were originally approved by the FDA as “safe”. As always though, we are the lab rats and it is only after often tragic results that the drugs are taken off only to be replaced by a new drug, whose real dangers have not been discovered before rushing it to market. When will we  learn?
As in all aspects of health and life, discipline equals freedom. There is no substitute and no short cuts. One cannot eat poorly, not exercise, stress out and expect to have a trim and fit body – at least not in mid-life and beyond. Women especially succumb to smoking which is the cheaters way to burn calories without discipline. But the price is paid with premature face and skin aging, increased pain, and of course the life threatening cancers and heart conditions.

At Brown Chiropractic Neurology, there is no cheating. We look at blood, saliva, and stool analysis to see what your body needs and to design exercise, diet, and supplement regimens to stabilize your metabolism. For your part, you must accept that you have to work at this and that no magic pill will give you that youthful face and figure regardless of what the advertisers seduce you to believe.

If you have wondered if chiropractic nutritional approaches can help you, see a chiropractor or chiropractors. Better yet, see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself, Dr. Scott Brown
