Detox vs Diet-The Ultimate Battle of Weight Loss

Todays Blog posting is centered around the on-going battle between Detox and Diet. Detox vs Diet-The Ultimate Battle of Weight Loss. With the amount of information each and every person receives on a daily basis due to social media, it is quite hard to determine between fact and fiction. Especially when it comes to health and fitness. On a daily basis we troll social media avenues like Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest to see what will work best for our clients so we can provide the best service possible. During these trolling sessions we run across hundreds and thousands of “do it yourself” bloggers who say they have a great new ways for you to lose weight. Now we hope that our customers are a little too picky about their bodies to take some random bloggers advice as gospel but just to be sure we wanted to write this blog to help you sort through the “fat” no pun intended. To start off lets define the difference between Detox and Diet. “Diet” technically means to restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight. “Detoxify” is defined as changing eating habits in an attempt to remove toxic substances or qualites. The problem is that many of us think of “detox” as a noun, as in to do “a detox” for a few days here and there. We emphasize a “detox” in the verb form, ie detoxing continually, as we also amass toxins constantly. Diets focus on what you are eating and how much you are eating. Common diet’s out there keep you to a certain alloted amount of calories on a daily basis and filter out common foods like meat’s, bread’s, and sugar’s. The problem we have with this type of diet is that it is not substainable to most. The average person that loses weight on a calorie limiting diet will bounce back up to their prior weight or more due to the strict limitations of food. “I lost 10 lbs in the last two weeks! I think I deserve a candy bar…or 3.” This type of mentality is the problem with diets, and leads to people trying numerous diets written by numerous people that may or may not have the authority or knowledge to design. Another major problem with calorie alloted dieting is the LACK OF FOOD! You may lose 10-20 lbs but your energy levels are down, your skin and nails weaken, hair begins to fall out, and your overall feeling of wellness is plummeted into a dark abyss of malnutrition. Detoxification on the other hand has numerous benefits if you do it CORRECTLY! Detoxing should be a constant plan in your lifestyle to stay healthy and clean yourself of unwanted toxins in your system. On a constant basis we are absorbing toxins into our body that cause numerous health problems and yet the misconception of a detox being a one time thing still exists. The focus should instead be on creating a proper nutrition plan that will crave all the urges you have for every kind of food, creating stability, and sustainability. Antioxidant-rich, fibrous natural foods in your diet will constantly detoxify your body by removing all of those unwanted toxins and chemicals that do not belong in your body. Detoxification is a natural process that your body is constantly doing, it just needs a little aid from you to help it run smoother and faster. Detoxification done properly will help you naturally lose weight with no malnutrition, and will better your general health and wellness much more than your standard diet. When planning on losing weight or starting a diet or detox, remember think of it in terms of length compared to immediate reward. Detox vs Diet-The Ultimate Battle of Weight Loss, who do you think will prevail?

Low Back Pain Solution!

About a month ago I was lifting at the gym and hurt my lower back. The back pain had been coming on for a few months, however, this particular day of lifting put it over the edge. Growing up in a family of chiropractors I knew some of the benefits of traction tables, which gently pull the upper and lower body causing your back and spine to stretch. Personally I love using these machines, but they are quite expensive to use on a regular bases. So I decided to try out the Teeter Inversion Table.

This device simply grasps your feet and allows you to tilt backwards stretching out your back! Immediately when I tilted back I could feel enormous amount of pressure being taken off of my lower back. Its hard to explain how great this stretching, relieving effect felt. The better part of the effect is this doesn’t just aid back pain relief, but aids in the healing of the back. Often times as our backs get compressed and pinched, the circulation stops flowing to these areas and relief can never be found. By stretching the spine and allowing fluids to enter into these areas, the body will begin healing and regenerating these damaged tissues. This means that prolonged use of a Teeter Inversion or traction tables will allow for long term healing and relief, as well as, short term pain relief.

On top of this, after I used the Teeter Inversion Table I walked over and got on our Professional Vibration Machine to try to loosen up my back where it was pinching. This was the icing on the cake! After the stretching, decompression effects of the Inversion Table, the Vibration Machine shook up my lower back and allowed it to slip back into its proper alignment. Keep in mind that there are a variety of ways to use the vibration machine, which enable you to focus movement on specific areas of the body. I focused on stretching the lower back by leaning on the handle bars while holding my legs straight, getting on my knees while resting my forearms on the plate, and sitting my butt on the plate while leaning forward to touch my toes. These three simple movements allowed the machine  to focus on my lower back and cause amazing pain relief!

This blog post highlights the benefits the devices posed for me, but the awesome thing about these items is that there are many more uses! The Vibration Machines we offer at HEALTHandMED.com create a variety of opportunities for healing and exercise to all users. If you have specific questions about what these machines can do for you, please comment below and we will be sure to respond! Thanks for reading and be healthy!

Types of Vibrations & Their Benefits

Inside of the vibration plate machine category, there are 3 different types of motions to consider when making a purchase.

The first and most popular is the oscillating motion. This motion acts as a see-saw allowing the vibration plate to go up and down pivoting over a center point. This up and down motion translates into specific benefits. Oscillating motion helps to increase lymphatic drainage, aid weight loss, and improve fast twitch muscles.

The second most common motion is the triplanar motion. This motion doesn’t move the vibration plate side to side, but rather straight up and down, as well as, forward and back. These variations of movements create a spiral type motion. This type of vibration has coined the term “tri-planar.” This motion is great for increasing muscle strength, bone density and more. You do have to be a little more careful though, because this motion is harder on the joins and body. That being said, most professional sports teams, rehab clinics and chiropractors purchase and used this type of machine prior to the introduction and affordability of the dual motion machines.

The last motion to be discussed is the dual motion. This is the newest style of motion and the most useful. Their vibration plate movement includes the see-saw oscillating and the triplanar motions at the same time. They also give you control to do one motion or the other when you want to. This level of control and movement enables all users to use the machine as intended for their specific needs.
