My Journey to and
As a business owner, I don’t get much time for myself. Naturally, I try to shut offmy thoughts about work and our office when I get a fewminutes of downtime, but like other entrepreneurs, I’m always thinking about my next move, problems to fix, and of course, my patients. Unfortunately, the neglect of my well-being had begun to show. This past fall, I could tell I wasn’t my best self. I had low energy, and my clothes felt tighter. I wasn’t taking the time I needed to for myself. Overall, I felt — for lack of a better term— crappy. Around that same time, a friend of mine, who is also a chiropractor, calledme, explaining a new nutritional programhe was offering at his office. His patients were having great success, but I wasn’t sold yet. Then he started explaining the health benefits. As chiropractors, we have a pretty good understanding of the way the body should function and howwhat we put into it can weigh it down—both literally and figuratively. This program, Optavia, features an educational component that clues users in to how their body is reacting tometabolic fluctuations and nutrient deficiencies. It provides a strict yet easy-to-follow regimen to cleanse the body of the junk that’s been gumming up the works for decades and guides a user through quick weight loss andmaintenance. This got me thinking. Since I needed to kick start my wellness, and I’m always considering ways to grow SouthWindsor Neck and Back, I figured I should give this shake andmeal-replacement program a try.

Optavia users are invited to stay on the program for as long as they want with products that support good digestion and nutrition. The program incorporates real food, while also limiting the number of meals in the beginning, and users that feel confident in their abilities to continue without the program can stop or start up again at any time. It’s a transition that takes some time, but the flavorful shakes and bars leave me feeling full and happy. There’s nothing worse than starting a new diet and finding your sweet tooth is stronger than you thought. Luckily, the shakes and bars taste just like peanut butter and chocolate, so you don’t feel like you’re missing out while you’re gaining somuch good nutrition. Optavia has givenme more than I could have imagined. I’ve gainedmy energy and gusto back, and best of all, it allowedme to better myself while also working toward betteringmy patients’lives. As a medical professional, I often forget to take care of myself. I would spend all day reminding patients tomonitor their nutrition, exercise, andmovements to ensure they have optimal spinal and overall health, but rarely did I take time for me. Now, I have the best of both worlds, and I can’t wait to see where your Optavia journey takes you.
