I and my 2 younger brothers were born in Canada to 2 wonderful parents... both of whom were denied the necessities of life and living during WWII; having survived the horrors of the holocaust with each of them losing many family members to the perils of war. They were poor and emaciated immigrants with very few belongings, arriving in Canada from Eastern Europe in 1948. They vowed to build a new and better life for themselves and their three sons... and to never starve again. Food then became their focus and in our home it was plentiful.
Growing up, I developed a "yo-yoing" weight problem. After graduating as a chiropractor in 1976 from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and weighing 185lbs., I slowly began to put on an enormous amount of excess weight over the years since then. I eventually developed Type 2 Diabetes.
While attending a Chiropractic conference in Florida in 1991, I was walking thru a mall there when a young boy walking with his family pointed to me and loudly stated that I looked like the Canadian actor who portrayed 'Uncle Buck' (John Candy). It was then that I had an 'epiphany'... I realized that I'd better have to start to seriously manage my health and lifestyle, or possibly suffer with other serious medical consequences. As the proverb states "Physician Heal Thyself"... I began to take responsibility for my own health and ever since then I've never looked back. As a reminder of the 'old' me, I had 2 pictures taken then of myself which I kept and framed.
(Top left: picture taken of me in February 1992 while vacationing. At that time, my pant waist measurement was 58 inches. Top right: picture taken of me on August 16, 1992. Bottom left: picture taken of me on August 31, 2014. Bottom right: picture taken of me on February 1, 2015 with both of my legs in one 58 inch waist jean pant leg. My waist measurement then was 34 inches).
In August 1992, my 'estimated' weight was approximately 420lbs. as my mechanical scale's indicator 'abruptly' stopped at 395lbs. What I should have used was a butcher's scale at a local supermarket to weigh myself.
Since that time I overcame various health issues, learned nutrition with better eating habits and joined a gym for exercise (cardio, stretching, strengthening) with and without a personal trainer. I have also tried numerous diets... with most of them resulting in failure and a rebound weight gain. However, overall I have trimmed down considerably and have improved my general health and quality of life.
In October 2013, I was contacted by ChiroThin™ (ChiroNutraceutical) thru an email to introduce their Health Canada approved weight loss lifestyle program into my practice including the Toronto chiropractic community, but I was not ready to do so at that time. I then asked my youngest brother Seymour, also a chiropractor, to consider spearheading ChiroThin™ for me, which he did.
To test its efficacy before introducing the ChiroThin™ Lifestyle Program to my patients and to fellow chiropractors, I decided to become a patient myself under Seymour's mentoring on July 30, 2014. My weight then was 209lbs. and presently my weight fluctuates between 165lbs. and 170lbs. and not far from my realistic and attainable goal of about 155lbs. I now feel great, look great and enjoy improved energy and stamina. I have become a vital 'testament' for this successful lifestyle program!
The ChiroThin™ Lifestyle Program is a fat, inches and weight loss regimen that anyone can easily do without having to consume shakes, eating bars, swallowing pills, purchasing expensive pre-packaged foods, undergoing surgery, excessive exercise or having to take weekly injections.
The program itself is not only about scale weight measurement, as this metric is only used as a starting point benchmark. This program's electronic metrics also measure: BMI, BMR, body fat %, lean muscle mass, visceral fat %, resting blood pressure and heart rate, ketone and pH levels.
In my practice, ChiroThin™ patients and I meet weekly for metric measurements and 'coaching' that includes dietary review, positive motivation, discussion and solution of any program challenges. Patients also receive 'value-added' acupuncture point stimulation, if required, for appetite suppression and metabolic enhancement geared towards successful program results.
As a consequence of the ChiroThin™ Program, one's lifestyle quality improves in many ways... one feels better and looks trimmer; blood glucose, blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels eventually lower with increased stamina and energy levels. Even those on medication, like me, find too that their prescribed remedies will either be decreased or removed by their physicians or specialists... eventually cleansing one's body of chemicals.
Personally for myself, I was very excited to say the least, when both my specialist and physician in mid-October 2014 had me stop injecting myself with insulin. What a win for me!!
