Good morning. I was at the YMCA and received a common question. "How do I get ads?" This is an all to common question. My answer is simple. Ads are made in the kitchen and strengthened in the gym or with exercise. Let me explain. Everyone, and I mean everyone has abs (abdominal muscles, but most are hidden behind a wall of subcutaneous fat or belly fat. The only way to rid yourself of the fat and expose the abs is through proper nutrition. You can do all the crunches, planks and sit-ups you want but if you don't change your nutrition in order to minimize the fat accumulation you will never see your abdominal muscles. And no, low calorie diets will not work. You need to maintain a proper calorie diet but change the ratio of protein-fat-carbohydrates in your daily nutritional profile. Most people, including most doctors, haven't got a clue as to what that is. Go to the internet and you will be confused. There are no magic lotion, potion or pills that will get you there. Even with these miracle 'fat burners' there is a proper nutritional profile that goes along with it. Without the proper nutrition, these "Fat Burners" do not work either. Weight-loss and improved fitness has a ratio. It is 60-65% nutrition and 35-40% exercise. Most people are under the false impression that if they just go ape in the gym, they will achieve their goals. Unfortunately, this is a false belief and can actually sabotage what your are trying to accomplish. Here at Chesapeake Wellness Center, we can provide you with the correction plan to expose those abdominals, make you fitter and overall healthier.

Prior to Chiropractic care, I was suffering from severe pains on the back of my neck, head, shoulders, arms, legs, and lower back. I had numbness and tingling in my fingers, burning on my shins, and back. Every day I felt as if I had the flu. I would wake up each morning very fatigued because of sleep disturbances and as the day progressed, the pains would increase with stress and anxiety. Due to the chronic pain, I was always fatigued and therefore, deprived of social activities and exercise. I was prescribed pain relievers, but I only received temporary relief. When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I was prescribed Zolof®, an anti-depressant which I stopped taking because of the side effects. I started Chiropractic care after attending a workshop presented by a local Chiropractor. After a couple of months of Chiropractic treatment, my health improved tremendously. I no longer suffer from chronic pains and my energy level has increased. I am now able to get a good night's sleep and wake without body aches and stiffness. I am enjoying my social life, and most importantly, without any medication and side effects. Chiropractic care did not give me temporary relief of my pains, but corrected the cause. I can certify that Chiropractic care has given me my life back!
