Weight Loss
You can do it!  Losing weight is hard work, but worth it for the long-term health benefits that come with maintaining a healthy weight.  Starting is half the battle!  Everyone has to begin somewhere.  Smaller portions and daily exercise of just 30 minutes--even walking--can greatly improve your health.  Let us help you with your health goals to give you that accountability and positive push in the right direction!  

Here, the top seven habits for maintaining a healthy weight and gaining vitality, from "7 Habits of Healthy Living":  
  • Habit #1: What to Eat
"A balanced eating plan consists of balanced meals and low-carbohydrate, low-fat protein drinks."

  • Habit #2: How Much to Eat
"Skipping meals or irregular eating habits increase insulin levels, which decrease vitality."

  • Habit #3: Exercise 
"A regular program of aerobic resistance and flexibility exercises has been shown to reduce insulin levels and reverse insulin sensitivity, that will increase vitality."

  • Habit #4: Stimulants
"Regular use of stimulants raises insulin levels and reduces vitality."

  • Habit #5: Stress
"For optimum health, regular stress management health programs help help keep insulin and other hormone levels balanced, improving vitality."
  • Habit #6: Supplements 
"Micronutrient imbalance is an independent risk factor for developing Syndrome X."

  • Habit #7: Hormone Balance
"Hormones in the body work together.  Just as it's not healthy to have high or low thyroid levels, it's not healthy to have high or low insulin levels.  Normal hormone levels indicate balance and help to increase overall vitality."

Rumors are Flying!
Dr. Candice recent
It's true.  Dr. Candice is expecting a baby toward the end of May.  But don't worry--she will continue her practice as usual until the birth, taking a brief post-partum break, returning part-time for a couple weeks, then rockin' & rollin' her usual schedule a month after the baby is born!
Changes in our office procedures

Starting Jan. 1, our office will be transitioning to new software, which will change the way you check in before your appointments.  Soon, each patient  will have their own check-in cards. Also, we are moving away from reminder phone calls prior to your appointments, and will be switching to email reminders.  We thank you for your patience as we make these transitions to optimize our time and resources at ACWC!

 IsaLean Shake from Isagenix

Isagenix Cleanse
The #1 cause of disease?  Toxins!  If allowed to build up in the body over time, toxins can have a negative impact on overall health.  Our bodies are bombarded with toxins everyday and even manufacture toxins on their own just from living in our environment.  
The answer?
The body needs to be reset and rid of toxins that have built up, primarily in fat cells, which a good cleanse will take care of.  We recommend the Isagenix Cleanse, but come in and decide for yourself which of our cleanse options is right for you!  
Inclement weather policy
