Many, many women and men patients over the past eleven years have told me that if they could change one thing about their body, it would be to lose “those last 10 pounds.” It has been said to me so many thousands of times I estimate it in the 1000’s! That phrase seems like it’s been rammed into the brain of so many people! Truth be told, many people do not need to lose “those last 10 pounds.” In fact, most people have to lose much to get even close to normal values!
Most people have no real idea what their body weight should be, what their body fat percentage should be, and most people have no idea how they gain fat and how one systematically loses fat. Most Americans are now overweight and in Colorado, we have exceeded the 20% mark for obesity. The consequences for the obesity and excess weight are dire, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, cancer, injuries, depression and chronic pain all are caused or complicated by being obese or overweight. Normal body fat percentage for women is 18-28%, and normal for men is 10-20%. Do you know yours?
What most people don’t know is that once the details of body composition, blood and hormone analysis are made, and once a nutrition and exercise profile and plan are created and followed, “those last ten pounds” melt off and so much more. Getting lighter means more energy, better balance, better sex life and even a better financial outlook!
The fact is, is that health comes from getting as close to normal as possible, in as many different parameters as possible. If your doctor, health care provider, chiropractor, nurse or nutritionist are not measuring all of your necessary normal values, you are missing out on a very important component of not only weight loss, but also pain relief, muscle and strength gains, better sleep, and a better mental outlook with less depression and anxiety. You need data!
At Benchmark Medical Group, we have many ways to acquire data! Our initial screening process includes measuring your posture and comparing the values to normal and normal ranges. We have the ability to measure your overall bodily strength and compare to averages for your age. We can measure individual joint flexibility and strength, and we have an amazing software that allowed us to measure every angle in your spinal joints and compare each level to normal! Most orthopedic surgeons don’t have the spinal measurement capabilities we have! Almost every patient states, “I’ve never had such a thorough evaluation!”
We have the ability to test broad spectrums of hormones with both saliva, urine and blood analysis. We can look at nutrients, foods and environmental allergens that may be keeping you sick and causing you pain and suffering or poor digestion. We can look at your genetic profile to give you clues to your ideal protein, fat, and carbohydrate ratios as well as your recommended level of exercise intensity from a genetic perspective. We can measure your health status and give you comparisons to normal pain levels, normal health outlook, normal social function, mental health, and energy all matched to your peers. We have so many numerous ways to measure different parameters of your health, and the information and data received give you so many measurable and valuable results!
However, we don’t stop there! Not only do we have methods to measure you and compare you to multiple normal values and ranges, we have effective, repeatable, reliable methods to reverse these abnormal measurements! We have the equipment, knowledge, experience and expertise to guide you through a program to improve your quality of life, your physical capabilities and your body!
