Weight Loss Program in Peoria

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Shape Reclaimed is an amazing practitioner supervised weight loss program that we use here in the office for patients that are wanting to lose weight or are have a lot of problems with chronic aches and pains from inflammatory problems such as arthritis.

There are 3 phases to the Shape Reclaimed Program.  Phase 1 is a restricted calorie diet that lasts 23 days.  During that time full instruction is given on what are acceptable foods and what are not, but we do have you eat real food.  This phase helps train your body how to stay away from some of the foods that cause us health problems and cause us to gain weight.  Specific protocols are used as well as a non HCG formula supplement is taken during this phase.  We have Phase 1 patients come in to do a weekly urinalysis to make sure that their body is accepting the changes and they are losing weight in a healthy manner.  Phase 1 is generally where we will see the most weight loss. It’s common for patients to have awesome weight loss results during this phase and actually stick with the phase 1 protocols longer than the initial 23 days.

Phase 2 and phase 3 are added in when a desired amount of weight has been lost or the patient feels they are ready for the transition.  More and different foods are slowly added back into the diet and weight loss is maintained and general health is improved.  It is not uncommon to see blood pressure normalized, Cholesterol Levels come down dramatically, and even diabetic numbers level out.  We have men and women involved with Shape Reclaimed and everyone on it absolutely loves the ease of the program and the results that they get.  Below is a testimonial along with a before and after picture of Caleb G. of East Peoria.  Caleb has had amazing results on the Shape Reclaimed Program.

“I lost 85 pounds with the help of Shape Reclaimed.  At first it was difficult because of the lifestyle change, but after a few weeks it became easier.  I had unexpected body changes (i.e.: body odor was gone, stopped snoring, great sex, increased sense of taste, less food cravings, and less wax in my ears) and I fit into clothes sizes I’ve never been able to wear.  I would definitely recommend the Shape Reclaimed diet because it is a way of life for everyone and it is food that we all should be eating.”

Treatment for the Bulged disc, Herniated Disc or Slipped Disc

Friday, August 29th, 2014

I would say that about 80% of the cases of back and neck pain that come into my office are due to a disc problem.  Disc problems can come in different  forms and severities and can be caused by many different factors.  The disc is itself is located between each vertebrae and acts as a shock absorber for the body.  The disc can get irritated from many different factors such as: Herniated Disc Treatment

  • Vertebral Misalignment causing improper function
  • overloading the disc (aka lifting something too heavy)
  • repetitive stress
  • degenerative conditions (aka arthritic conditions)
  • lifting and twisting at the same time
  • and many others

 

To put it simply, the disc a very strong jelly filled sack. (not exactly, but an easy way to describe it for the layman)  When the disc gets irritated by one of the reasons listed above it will swell and pinch a nerve.  The amount of swelling or irritation on the disc determines the severity of the problem.  If the disc is just slightly irritated and swollen it can still cause severe back pain.  If the sac breaks and the jelly starts to come out that is an even more severe problem that can also cause very severe pain.  The disc can also completely rupture which is obviously and even larger problem.  All of these severities of disc problems can cause pain that will make you want to drop to your knees or not even get out of bed.  Many times the pain will be sharp and almost zap you if you hit it just right.  Many times certain postures will feel better than others because it take pressure of the disc that is pinching a nerve.

 

I often hear that you shouldn’t get adjusted if you have a bulged disc.  That line of thinking could not be further from the truth.  This is exactly the type of problem that conservative treatment like Chiropractic care has great success treating.  Proper joint function around and irritated disc is paramount in the healing process of the disc.  Without proper function of the joint, frequent flare ups of the condition are often seen.  At my office we are specialists at treating spinal disc problems of all severities.  Chiropractic care should be the first course of action for a suspected disc problem.  Only after a course of conservative Chiropractic care has been tried should more invasive procedures be considered.

Chiropractor for Pregnant Women

We have many pregnant women ask us about a chiropractic adjustment. During pregnancy your body is obviously going through a lot of changes and with those  changes come new and different aches and pains. Some common pregnancy pains that we see are lower back pain, Sciatica, headaches, hip pain, and round ligament pain. Getting adjusted by a chiropractor while pregnant is not only completely safe for you and your baby, it is really one of the easiest and most proactive ways to make sure your body is in proper alignment, and all the changing joints in your body are functioning as well as possible. Here is our office brochure with some good information on why you should be treated by your Peoria Chiropractor when you are pregnant. – Justin Tuttle, Chiropractor

Chiropractic Care for Children in Peoria

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

More and more we are seeing children of all ages in our office.  Chiropractic care at early stages of life can be very beneficial and is very safe for the child.  Many of the spinal problems that develop later in life began very early and sometimes even at birth.

The birth process can be just as hard on the baby’s spine and developing nervous system as it is on the mother.  Irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment at birth is many times the cause of health issues.

  • Nursing Difficulties
  • Breathing issues
  • Sleeping problems
  • Colic
  • Chronic infections

Are many of the things we see that can be cause by stress on spinal nerves.

It is important to note that adjusting a newborn or infant is not like adjusting an adult.  Their are specific protocols for adjusting tiny spines and we really enjoy helping with these problems.  Releasing nerve pressure many times gives very quick relief without the use of medications to kids who are suffering with these issues.  Most times kids respond very quickly to chiropractic care.  Each issue has its own protocol and every patient is different, but usually we can see marked improvement in 2-3 weeks.

Many of our patients will bring their newborn baby in to get checked as soon as possible.  If a problem is present we can correct it before larger issues show up.  Below is a picture of me adjusting my daughter Mae at 2 weeks old.

Weight Loss Program SHAPE ReClaimed in Peoria IL

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Dr. Justin Tuttle, a chiropractor in Peoria IL, realizes that Weight Loss is a tricky topic this time of year.  However, if you find that the pounds are starting to add up SHAPE ReClaimed Weight Loss may be the answer for you.

WeightLossShapeHave you have noticed that as the weather grows colder and the days get shorter your food choices tend to change.

Most people tend to gravitate away from low-calorie fruits and vegetables and more towards comfort foods during the winter months.

Studies indicate that we do tend to eat more during the winter months.  When outdoor temperatures drop, your body temperature drops, and that’s what sets up the longing for foods that will warm you quickly.

Dr. Justin Tuttle explained that not only does the winter season set us up to crave higher-calorie comfort foods, but the holidays put them in front of us and usually in great abundance.  And while a more robust appetite for the winter months may not seem like such a big deal, the pounds tend to add up over the years.

Peoria IL Chiropractic New Year Resolution

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Peoria IL Chiropractic, the New Year is often seen as a time of rebirth, the chance to start anew.  Around 7 million of us will make a New Year’s resolution to improve an aspect of our life.  For the majority of people, these resolutions will not be kept.

Peoria IL Chiropractic

“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life.  Tiptoe if you must, but take the step.”

Stop and smell the roses in Monet's GardenPersonally, my New Year resolution this year is about slowing down, enjoying life and the moment more, and taking more time for myself.

So often we are going full steam ahead, multitasking our way through our endless list of things to do.  So often last year, I found myself trying to accomplish so many things that I did not even pay attention to the things I did achieve.

Recently I read about an experiment that was conducted.   There were a group of people that were split into three groups.  Each group met with a professor and was told to go to a nearby building for an important meeting.  One group was told to get there immediately, another to get there quick, and another to take their time.

On their way to the building a person was in distress, moaning and groaning.  Our Peoria IL Chiropractic Clinic thought the results of the experiment were very telling of our society.  Of those in the groups told to get there immediately and get there quick no one stopped to help the person.  It was only those in the group told to take their time that they actually stopped to help the stranger.

So what was different?  It wasn’t the compassion among those in one group as opposed to another.   It was simply…time.  The one group that stopped to help thought they had time.

Our Peoria IL Chiropractic Clinic knows that we all have the same 24 hours in a day.   How we choose to spend those 24 hours depends on the priority each of places on different aspects of our lives.  We, and nobody else, decide how to use that time.

From everyone at Tuttle Chiropractic Clinic in Peoria IL, we wish you all the best for a happy and healthy New Year!
