Seemingly more theoretical than practical, New Year’s weight loss resolutions can be achieved without reverting back to old habits.

“It’s not about weight loss; it’s about getting healthy and, as a side effect, losing weight,” said Tim Smith, a chiropractic doctor who will host a weight loss clinic at his Rocklin facility, New Life Chiropractic, on Feb. 2.

Smith, having practiced chiropractic for three years, decided to open an office in Rocklin to help promote and nurture the active lifestyles of Rocklin families. The grand opening of the family chiropractic facility was celebrated Jan. 5.

Smith emphasized that his chiropractic practice targets the causes of conditions, unlike a medication used to alleviate pain and reduce symptoms. His practices, he said, are all-natural, as they en-courage the body to heal itself as it was designed to, without assistance of “invasive” techniques to increase the functionality of the nervous system.

But the nervous system isn’t the only physiological benefit, as a heightened immune system and raised energy levels are also benefits of weight loss achieved through a healthier lifestyle.

Lack of knowledge and education reign as the largest contributors to back pain, which, according to Smith, limits body functionality.

Smith is dedicated to “correcting the cause, not just treating symptoms” to help people live healthier lifestyles and by correcting common yet ineffective methods of weight loss, including diet and improper cardio training.

“It’s (the clinic) essential,” said Smith, who wants to educate people about tips to not only meet their weight loss goals, but exceed them using Maximized Living’s philosophy of the “five essentials” – maximized mind, maximized nerve supply, maximized quality nutrition, maximized oxygen and lean muscle and minimized toxins.

The criteria lend itself to invite not only those who wanting to shed extra pounds to the clinic, but also those interested in attaining better health in general.

The three-hour clinic at the Five Star Boulevard facility will offer a variety of heath resources to carry out Smith’s “customized” approach to meet every individual’s unique needs and goals.

“It’s a lot different than most things people have done,” said Catherine De Lipski, a doctor of chiropractic who said that the clinic does not focus on counting calories, but rather doing the “right” form of exercise and taking the “right” approach to nutrition.

During his practice in San Jose and Santa Cruz, Smith organized similar clinics and said he received comments from an audience of attendees ranging from 16 to 80 years in age that his events were “phenomenal” and “amazing.”

“Come with an open mind,” said Smith, who will offer follow-up events to ensure people reach their resolutions by measuring metabolic rates and body compositions.

Because of the limited spots available, those interested in attending the clinic should call Smith at 259-2682. There is no registration fee.
