There are so many weight loss programs and diets to try during your weight loss journey. Some patients try all of them and still don’t reach their anticipated weight. Roanoke, TX chiropractor Dr. Cody Doyle uses a non-invasive, holistic approach to help patients notice results during their weight loss journey.
Rather than strict diets and vigorous exercise programs, Dr. Doyle recommends regular chiropractic visits, nutritional therapy, and auriculotherapy. These weight loss treatments are completed in our Roanoke, TX office and have significantly helped patients with their weight loss goals.
During your weight loss consultation, Dr. Doyle stresses the importance of routine exercise and healthy eating as the main features in successful weight loss. However, he understands that chronic pain can make exercising painful and uncomfortable. Overweight patients often experience back pain, which limits their ability to workout.
Dr. Doyle conducts a physical assessment and asks questions about your medical history and lifestyle to identify the root issue that’s limiting your weight loss ability.

Holistic Weight Loss Treatment
Dr. Doyle recommends that overweight patients attend regular chiropractic appointments to correct misaligned spines through musculoskeletal manipulation. When there’s misalignment in your spine, your nervous system and spine can’t communicate properly. This causes aches, pains, and improper function. It also places unnecessary pressure on the spine, which results in undesirable back pain.
Chiropractic care gently aligns vertebrae to ease discomfort and allow open communication between the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care reduces stress and helps manage arthritic pain, as well.
Along with regular chiropractic visits, Dr. Doyle recommends nutritional changes to help with weight loss. He may ask you to stop eating certain foods or to add specific foods into your diet to better your weight loss chances. Regular exercise and a healthy diet are the best ways to lose weight.
Auriculotherapy derives from the Chinese and was introduced into Western Culture approximately 60 years ago. This traditional Chinese method uses two needles, which are strategically placed into the ear to suppress the appetite. Auriculotherapy stimulates the Helicis Minor muscle to help patients feel fuller after consuming a smaller portion of food.
The acupuncture needles remain in the musculoskeletal points in the ear for two to three weeks. After they’re removed, patients experience a suppressed appetite for two to three months. Auriculotherapy may cause dry mouth for a day or two. However, this side effect will go away after a few days. Dr. Doyle recommends drinking plenty of water to help ease the dry mouth.
