Our weight has more of an impact on our lives than people realize. There is a direct relationship between our weight and our relationships, self-image, and health. Dr. Doug Howell and his team at Dr. Doug Howell Chiropractic & Wellness can help you understand the connection between your weight and health, as well as create a custom plan to help you begin your weight-loss journey.
Our weight affects our health as much as our appearance, potentially more so. As fat accumulates, it not only forms around our muscles, it builds up around our vital organs. When this happens, diseases related to those organs develop. A fatty liver can lead to liver disease; fat around the lungs can lead to sleep apnea, and it’s no secret that fat and the heart do not mix.
The weight of the fatty tissue can cause extra wear and tear on the hips, knees, and ankles, as well as the muscles needed to lift it.Start Losing Weight Now
Generally speaking, our weight is determined by how many calories we consume as offset by what we burn. People also love to throw in fat grams and total carbohydrates. There is much more to it than just that.
How we acquire our calories and carbohydrates is just as important. Certain fats are good to consume (in moderation), while some meats are so fatty that the protein intake doesn’t justify the fat consumption.
The theory is that everyone who eats a certain way and exercises a set amount should have the exact same physique. In reality, a lot of underlying factors can impede this. Thyroid issues, addiction, mental health - there are several things that you may have picked up from previous generations to consider.
A common mistake made when getting healthy is trying to do too much too fast. Humans are creatures of habit. Incremental change over the course of several weeks has been shown to have better long-term results than trying to change your lifestyle overnight.

I don't have much experience with chiropractic, but Dr. Howell was fantastic in my interactions with him. He's friendly, energetic, and efficient in his adjustments and helped my lower back issues immensely. Highly recommend!
He’s simply the best around central Kentucky! The only chiropractor I will ever see in town.
Kind and caring group. And successful treatments. I can't express how grateful I am to have found them and the relief they have provided!
It is always a pleasure to get to see Doc and his wife. It amazes me that I may not be in the office for months and they both always remembers your name when you come back in. And of course Doc is always upbeat and ready to assist you with your chiropractic needs.
Nice, knows what he's doing. My fiance and I always feel so much relief after going to his office. Recommended highly by us!
I appreciate that Dr. Howell always fits my daughters and I I in at. a last minute notice. He is the only chiropractor who has been able to treat my difficult areas of pain.
