Weight Loss

Are you having trouble losing weight? If so, you certainly aren’t alone. There are millions of Americans out there who are having trouble getting rid of unwanted pounds. When diet and exercise just aren’t cutting it, it may be time to turn to a qualified medical professional to find out what’s going on, why you’re having trouble losing weight and how to effectively address these problems areas. Here at The Body Connection, we take a functional medicine approach to providing you with the comprehensive tools, education and care you need to finally help you maintain a healthy weight.

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss

It’s important to recognize that what works well for one person when it comes to losing weight won’t necessarily help everyone. The key is being able to determine what will work for you. This is where our team of physicians comes in.

Dr. Albertina Logan is trained to provide nutritional counseling and support, as well as chiropractic care with a functional medicine approach to be able to personalize your dietary and weight loss plan. Functional medicine takes a whole-body approach, pinpointing the factors that could be contributing to your weight gain including,

  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Nutritional imbalances
  • Imbalances of the gut microbe
  • Inflammation caused by mold, poor diet, environmental toxins, food allergens and certain viruses (we offer food sensitivity testing to measure inflammation in the body caused by more than 320 different problem areas including chemicals, food additives and pharmaceuticals)

Weight gain may also be caused by stress or underlying emotional issues. Since there are many reasons why you may be dealing with weight loss resistance, it’s our job as your health and wellness team to find the root cause (or causes) and implement successful strategies to finally help you lose weight.

A chiropractor may not be the first type of medical professional you would turn to for weight loss; however, chiropractic care may be able to assist with,

  • Reducing stress and anxiety through regular adjustments, which can contribute to weight gain
  • Easing tension, back pain and other aches and pains that may prevent you from working out regularly
  • Providing nutritional guidance and advice
  • Improving neural pathways through regular spinal adjustments, which can also improve metabolic function and how neural pathways including eating cues and hunger function

If you are struggling to lose weight, we are here to help. To schedule a weight loss consultation with Dr. Logan and the wellness team at The Body Connection, call our Oakbrook Terrace, IL, office at (630) 705-1475.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "My initial reason for seeking chiropractic care was because I was having some back, neck, and shoulder problems. I had seen other chiropractors and achieved no results. This was not the case at The Body Connection. The experience here is very educational in learning how the body works. I am now able to function in a lot less pain. As a result, I am now more active and look at life with more understanding on how to stay healthy."
    Maria H.
  • "I first encountered The Body Connection through Groupon when I came in for a massage. I had a conversation with Dr. Logan and as a result of being treated here, I am now able to do intense workouts, boot camp, and boxing. I have also experienced increased weight loss and now have better posture. Dr. Logan and her staff have been very supportive."
    Lora K.
  • "I have been treated by other chiropractors in the past and over the years coming to The Body Connection has been a wonderful experience. I initially came in for lower back and hip pain. As of now, my flexibility has improved and my pain has diminished. I can now walk and stand for longer periods of time. Also doing daily house work isn’t as painful. I feel better after being treated by the doctor. My energy level is increased and it also improves my state of mind."
    Laura C.
  • "After the awesome massage I enjoyed, I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Logan who encouraged me and stated she could help me. I can now hold my head up better and my chronic headache syndrome has subsided. My experience at The Body Connection has been marvelous. To say it plainly; I just feel better!"
    Maura M.
  • "Prior to meeting the staff of The Body Connection Health and Wellness Center at a Ladies Day Expo, I had no knowledge of chiropractic care. Dr. Logan educated me on how the different issues I was experiencing were connected. As a result of getting treated at this facility, my body feels better. I am now able to sit and ride in a car without feeling the lower back pain and spasms of the past."
