BIRMINGHAM, Mich., July 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Birmingham chiropractor Dr. Jennifer Bonde announced that her practice, Birmingham Wellness Center, offers nutritional counseling services, including detox, weight loss and guidance on Paleo nutrition. The Paleo Diet is a whole foods-based approach to wellness care. The diet helps individuals eliminate processed foods and refined sugars and return to a natural 'hunter gather' approach to eating. The Paleo diet also emphasizes the importance of detoxification for successful weight loss. Dr. Bonde recommends this diet to patients who need to lose weight and take control of chronic health problems.

Individuals who are struggling to lose weight may benefit from the Paleo Diet as part of a long-term lifestyle change, says Birmingham chiropractor Dr. Jennifer Bonde.

Dr. Bonde recently announced that her practice is offering nutritional counseling, including the Paleo Diet, to help patients proactively take control of their health, lose weight and better manage chronic disease.

"The Paleo nutritional lifestyle is beneficial for reducing inflammation, boosting immunity and fighting aging," said Dr. Bonde. "The Paleo diet is one of today's most popular healthy lifestyle approaches and there's a good reason for this – it's easy to follow and enhances all aspects of an individual's well-being while supporting natural weight loss."

The Paleo diet is a modern take on a "hunter-gatherer diet" that includes lean protein sources, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and healthful oils. The diet prohibits dairy products, processed foods and refined sugars.

"The Paleo diet is comprised entirely of nutrient-dense foods that bring maximum nutrients into our cells and flush out toxins," said Dr. Bonde. "These are the foods that are bodies were designed to eat."

Dr. Bonde says fad diets, including many types of marketed diet foods, are actually detrimental to the body's health. Diet foods may be low in fat, but they are typically high in processed sugars and packed with artificial ingredients.

"Many so-called diet foods are anything but healthy," said Dr. Bonde. "These foods starve the body, depriving it of vital nutrients. The body goes into starvation mode and the metabolism shuts down."

The chiropractor says that detoxification is essential for long-term weight loss. Otherwise, toxins in the cells will continue blocking the body's ability to lose weight.

"Effective weight loss only works by getting toxins out of the cells and replacing these toxins with real nutrients," said Dr. Bonde. "The Paleo diet helps individuals get off the weight loss roller coaster and take control of their health."

Dr. Bonde recommends nutritional counseling for individuals who want to safely lose weight as part of a wellness care lifestyle.

More information on nutritional counseling and wellness care is available at the Birmingham Wellness Center's website, The website also features a video with nutritionist and author Dr. Kellyann Petrucci discussing the Paleo diet and her recent book, "Paleo Cookbook for Dummies."
