TRANSITIONS LIFESTYLE SYSTEM

ChiroAcuHealth brings you TLS the best weight loss solution is designed to correctly re-balance and improve your metabolism, lose unwanted weight, and inches while keeping it off once and for all. This is the Transitions Lifestyle System, a science-based program that can be customized to fit you and your unique lifestyle. Weight loss is a personal thing, which is why we personalize these programs to help you reach your weight loss and nutritional healthcare goals. While other programs tell you what they think works; with TLS, it’s all about what works for you and this it what matters.

How It Works

TLS Weight Loss Solution focuses on low-glycemic impact eating, nutritional supplementation where needed, body composition management and unlimited education. This approach will assist you with achieving your weight loss goals, leading to a new, healthier you but more importantly a nutritional health lifestyle.

What To Eat

Foods that are slow to digest and absorb, inherently create a slow rise in blood sugar keeping insulin levels at a minimum. These are the foods that are at the core of healthy eating. Foods have a ranking system called

Glycemic Index (GI). GI measures carbohydrates (sugars) on a scale of 0 to 100. Higher GI foods cause sudden spikes in blood sugar, stimulating the increased amounts of insulin. When this happens there becomes too much insulin which never gets utilized and eventually stored as fat. This not only causes obesity, but type 2 diabetes.

Low GI diets are known to improve blood sugar, insulin and fat in the blood levels of people with diabetes. Benefits also include weight loss and feelings of fullness longer. Recent studies from Harvard School of Public Health suggest that the risks of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease are strongly related to the Glycemic Index of the overall diet. And in 1999 the World Health Agency (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) “recommended that people in industrialized countries base their diets on low-GI foods in order to prevent the most common diseases of affluence, such as coronary heart disease, diabetes and obesity.” Ironically the rise of these conditions in America is out of control.

Body Composition

In any of our TLS programs we always begin and monitor body composition by measuring the percentages, and ratios of all the parts that make up the body mass. These include: fat mass and fat free mass which can be broken down into metabolic tissue, water that is in and out of the cells, bone and fat. We utilize Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA) to accurately oversee what is going on during a weight loss program on a cellular level. It will show if your are dehydrated or toxic. It will give you your Body Mass Index (BMI) and specifically your Body Metabolic Rate (BMR). When we know exactly how many calories it takes to run your body and depending on your lifestyle we can manage down to the specifics of your food intake. This means that not all weight loss programs are treating the body fairly. Some weight loss programs focus on inches lost and the amount of weight reduced by the measurement of a bathroom scale. This is not scientific or healthy by any means. Healthy weight management is about maintaining muscle mass while decreasing and keeping fat mass at the desirable level for each individual. There have been numerous clinical studies proving that by using certain products and a low GI food plan, lost closely to the same amount of weight and inches, but what differentiated these 2 groups was that the group who utilized mainstream highly advertised products, their weight loss included the loss of muscle mass whereby those who utilized the research backed nutraceutical products did not lose any muscle mass and in some instances they gained muscle. This is why we utilize full body BIA and provide research systems.

Weight Loss Supplements

To increase your weight loss efforts, TLS offers several scientifically-developed weight loss supplements. Each formula addresses different physiological processes in your body that can cause you to gain or prevent you from losing weight. It’s imperative that all bases are covered to optimize metabolism and make the most of your journey.

The More You Know

The TLS Weight Loss Solution program prides itself on the education necessary to ensure sustainable weight loss management. The more we know, the more empowered we are to make better nutritional lifestyle decisions. We keep it simple, if you need to know more, we have more to share.

Weight Loss Profile

People always ask what is the best way to start a nutritional lifestyle program. TLS has created a comprehensive questionnaire where your answers regarding habits, physical activity and weight loss goals and challenges are imputed into algorithm creating customizable weight loss plan that matches your lifestyle. This weight loss plan will incorporate specific recommendations for nutritionally dense foods low on the GI track, exercise and supplementation that corresponds with your individual needs for successful weight loss. This is one investment in our health we cannot do with without.

Weight Management Assistance

For some difficult cases and those who have struggled before, we offer specific acupuncture protocols to help those who need stress management and or those who need assistance in curbing their appetite. Another researched back technique we provide is Whole Body Vibration (WBV). This has been around for years but more recently research is coming out in the scientific literature suggesting increased arterial function, increased muscle strength, increased metabolism and increase in bone calcium. It is safe, effective and almost everyone can benefit from Whole Body Vibration.

DRX9000, it’s a wonderful machine. Really helped by back! The DRX9000 are a god send. People here are great. Consider it if you have any back problems. I have 5 herniated discs in my lumbar. I am 90%.

Sharon

Picking up my shoes off the floor was a big thing…just get up and just walk it’s like a toddler walking for the first time…Little things but BIG stuff for me… I can’t say enough…how I feel so much better.

Sharon

How does it feel?

Wonderful. I love how it stretches me stretches me and makes me feel comfortable, better than my bed… Prior to this treatment mornings were my worse. When I get up I can just get up and move. It’s a breathe of fresh air, feel like I have more energy.

Walter

thank you for helping to reduce, and at times, alleviate, my back pain with the chiropractic intervention you gave me over the three sessions… For my sleep apnea, the acupuncture was very successful. I sleep better now and feel rested plus it appears to have improved my foot neuropathy. I actually have feels again in my toes!

Chester

I tried all of the tactics, stretching, yoga and all that and none of it was working… I haven’t really dealt with meds, worrying about toxicity… I went with acupuncture, and in just one visit, my pain was gone… and I keep coming back and it’s better and better.

Matt

2nd visit in, I feel great… I feel relaxed… a lot better…

Paul

Being my very first time I can honestly say Valerie and Dr. Koppel were both amazing! I felt very comfortable from the beginning. I had 32 needles placed in various areas and not one hurt. Most I didn’t even feel as they were placed. Before he finished placing them I had already begun getting very relaxed. By the time he was finished I was pretty much asleep yet aware. The 45 minutes that passed until he removed them felt like 20 minutes. I had to take my time getting off the table. I was that relaxed. Driving home I was much more patient with traffic, could breathe thru my nose easier, my daily craving for fast food was gone. Today, the day after, I even cooked for myself; scallops and flash cooked power greens in coconut oil with spices. I already have my 2nd appointment set up for next week and look forward to it! Thank you Valerie and Dr. Koppel for an amazing experience!

Dr Koppel and Valerie,

On April 1 2017 I was stopped at a red traffic light, and hit from behind by someone who was texting and driving and never hit her brakes. After the EMT’s and Police left, I made an appointment the same day with Dr Koppel at Chiroacuhealth, had x-rays, and light treatment, I had injuries to my neck, shoulder, torso and hip. My neck had severe whiplash, and from being tossed front to back on initial impact, I lost the curve in my neck, and sustained 2 herniated discs and 2 bulging discs effecting my neck & torso. Upon impact of the accident, my head was turned to the right side ( I must have been looking at the radio) so my head was permanently turned to the right side which was another necessary correction.
Symptoms experienced from day one were: from 1st day- I had mental break down- crying every 60 minutes over a period of 2 days, and At times constantly thirsty, and at times it feels like my brain shakes I was unable to sleep still due to severe pain in my neck, as well and shoulders, chest, and arms. I also had numbness and weakness in my arms and fingers, I experienced left hip and left leg pain, low back pain. My muscles in my neck and shoulders feel achy, hard or knotted up. I have constant Pain, My neck is stiff, and have constant headaches at the base of the skull that radiate towards the forehead I have Loss of mobility and loss of range of motion in my left arm. I am dropping things with my hands. I have confusion, and no concentration, or ability to retain information or process my thoughts at times, I was constantly tired, but cannot sleep thru the night. .. I would lose my balance while standing up and then righting myself. Difficulty with driving turning head. ( holding steering wheel ) I was extremely Limited as to effect day to day activities of showering, getting dressed, ( not doing any cooking or cleaning, laundry, or daily chores such as shopping or driving, as ( holding steering wheel with both hands was impossible ) cannot go to a hairdresser, or dentist because of my neck & shoulder pain My Husband helps do all the daily chores that I could no longer do ( for months) I noticed difficulty sitting ( head & neck get tired)… I was mostly laying down every day. I had an MRI, and saw a neurologist who suggested I would be a very good candidate for surgery, We decided on an alternative course of treatment – “Posture Correction”. and we started traction in-office at Dr Koppel’s office which gave immediate relief. I made consistent progress, and posture corrective treatment gave me hope to have pain relief and increase mobility ( which was immediate) and I am happy to say they gave me my life back. I was always an active person, and it was both depressing and debilitating to go thru these severe injuries. Thank you for saving my life, I am back to work, and happy, I have my active life again- paddle-boarding, yoga, working out at the gym, riding my bike, swimming, and walking the beach. ….. happy to add -I sleep thru the night- pain free. I will always have a special place in my heart for ChiroAcuHealth!
sincerely,
Sharon Chronis
