VitaminMed Weight Loss in Novato, CA
Douglas DeSalvo DC, BCIN, DAAMLP: DeSalvo Chiropractic
VitaminMed Weight Loss Program: This is the beginning of the rest of your life. You will be absolutely amazed at the spectacular and potentially permanent results that this program offers simply by following the underlying outline. Remember, if you cheat, you are only cheating yourself. A positive attitude and the avoidance of stress during this program are of the utmost importance. This is NOT a magic pill – there is no such thing. It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily are more successful at keeping weight off. This program takes substantial self-discipline to achieve success, and though it is NOT EASY, it seems to be the easiest, most successful program we have found. Also, once completed, though you have supported and rebalanced your metabolism, you still cannot go out and stuff yourself with buffets or eat loads of refined sugars and carbohydrates. This is NOT a license to do whatever you want. You can enjoy sweets, starches, fats, and oils (keep away from Hydrogenated products and corn syrup products) but be aware of what you consume, how much and how often. They should be a reward – not a daily habit. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) obesity is a serious concern because it is associated with poorer mental health outcomes, reduced quality of life, and the leading cause of death in the U.S. and worldwide, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer.
The good news is that no matter what your weight loss goal is, even a modest weight loss, such as 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight, is likely to produce health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugars. An important point to note with our program is that when you have dropped, for example, 16lbs., you have probably lost 14 lbs. of abnormal fat. Whereas with other diets, when you lose 16 lbs. you could be losing 8 lbs. of lean body mass, 4 lbs. of good fat reserves and 4 lbs. of abnormal fat. Everyone is different, and everyone will have different results. Some people will lose 9 lbs. their first week and only 2 lbs. their second week; while others will lose 4 lbs. both week one and week two. Do not get discouraged. Everyone slows down at some point and may even hit a plateau. By following the specific program outlined here, you will lose weight safely and rapidly from the areas that contain stored fat, and you will not only lose pounds, but more importantly inches

I have been suffering with back pain for almost 3 years from a fall! I’ve seen two back doctors, two orthopedist for my hip and numerous physical therapist! Also 3 cortisone shots! Finally decided to try Doug for chiropractic! Well I’m sorry I waited so long! He has done wonders for me! I feel about 75% better! And I can sleep at night without waking up in pain! I am so happy I found Doug! Highly recommend him! He’s awesome! Thanks Doug!
I’ve been coming to Dr DeSalvo for almost two years. My appreciation for what he’s done for my neck pain cannot be expressed easily with words. I wish I could post before and after pictures of my posture and my smile. I’ve completely forgotten what that neck pain feels like. When I came to him in September of 2013, I couldn’t lift my head off of the pillow. I literally had to have my dear hubby help me sit up. Now I regularly look left, right, up and down with ZERO pain. ZERO. That’s a HUGE deal.
I’m now experiencing some lower back pain due to my lack of exercise and having too much weight hanging about the middle of my body. We’re working together to alleviate that pain. That’s the key to DeSalvo Chiropractic…working TOGETHER. We’re a team. He takes the time to find out what’s really going on in your life and works to help you take steps to live your best life. Sometimes I don’t follow his advice…and he’s got a way of gently but firmly reprimanding that makes me WANT to follow his advice. It’s like he’s saying, “Hey! We’re part of a team and you’re not helping the team.” ok. OK. I’ll do my exercises! Ugh!
If you’re in any pain whatsoever at all, do yourself a favor and call Dr. DeSalvo. I promise, you won’t regret it.

THANK YOU so much!
Dr. DeSalvo is amazing as my husband had severe back pain and he helped him relieve his pain. It eventually resulted in surgery but Dr. DeSalvo helped my husband with relief of sever back pain from an injury. I also had neck pain and Dr. DeSalvo helped me with my neck pain and how to alleviate pain in the future. He is amazing and also knows the spine and neck so helps alleviate pain and also stretching and ways to help alleviate severe pain. He listens and is so aware of his patients and takes his time to help his patients. My husband and I would also like to say the office staff both Lynn and others on staff are wonderful so welcoming into the office. As well when I have called the office with changes or needing to see the Doctor Lynn does her best to accommodate the patients needs and always finds a way to fit you in on a very busy schedule.
I have had a chronic knot in my back for over 10 years. Every time we would go on a trip it would go into spasm! I started coming to Doug in February of this year. We went on a 15 day cruise in April and it was the first time in all these years that i did not have a problem! I am now coming in for occassional tune ups. I can’t say thank you enough.
DeSalvo Chiropractic can and will help you.
I have struggled with neck, back, hip, and head aches since I was a young teen due to a spinal injury that healed improperly. I developed bad habits such as cracking my neck, back, sternum, and hips this way and that way in order to try and relieve the tension from my spine. Last year something changed for the worse. After popping my neck, sharp pains would shoot down my spine and into my leg with a migraine soon to follow, but I would get dull pain and headaches if I didn’t pop my neck, so relief seemed unattainable.
A few months ago, I ran across my deck, and my lower back pinched, my hip popped, and my right leg tightened bringing me to my knees. This became more frequent until it was too painful to walk, drive, sit down, or fall asleep. I became a frigid and angry person at a much too young age and I found myself desperate for help in Doug DeSalvo’s office.
I was hesitant at first- a non-believer- but after my first adjustment, I learned the truth behind the science and healing power of spinal care, and that our spines are the core component to a functioning nervous system. All those years I thought I was adjusting my neck for myself, but instead I increased the tension throughout my whole body by taking the curve out of my neck!
Doug knows what he is doing, and he doesn’t leave you out of the loop while he’s doing it. Over the course of the past two months, he has adjusted, educated, and freed me from my pain. My headaches left after only one adjustment and the tension and sharp pain in my neck, back, and hips have been diminishing every day since. I am now sleeping through the night.
I highly recommend DeSalvo Chiropractic if you have headaches, back pain, neck pain, trouble sleeping, depression, or like me, just completely out of whack. Doug DeSalvo will help you get it back.
Several years ago I suffered a spinal compression fracture that resulted in permanent damage to my T12 vertebrae. I have been plauged with constant back pain for decades. Through the years I have seen literally dozens of specialist who have not been able to provide more than slight if any relief from discomfort.
One day I was in so much pain I could barely walk and thought I would try a chiropractor. I began a search for the chiropractors with best training and user ratings in the bay area. I found that Dr. De Salvo was rated tops so I made an appointment and due to my acute situation he saw me right away. After the initial assessment he began his treatment. I could tell immediately he knew what he was doing. It was obvious he had how I can only describe as “very intelligent hands.” At completion of the treatment I could stand straight and was a bit sore but the pain was almost completely gone.
I have been seeing Doctor Doug now a couple of times a month now for almost three years and am happy to report I am mostly pain free. I recommend him without reservation.
What can I say? Like Tony The Tigher “There Grrreat! Doctor DeSalvo is awsome and very attentive to your needs. Lynn and Chanelle do a great job and always put a smile on my face. All in all a great office. Give them a shot, I’m sure your like them!
I have had ongoing lower back issues and had been going to an old school chiropractor that wasn’t helping but hurting me further. I reached out to Dr DeSalvo and found him to be kind, accommodating and a great chiropractor. His office has all the newest equipment and his staff is friendly and efficient. You won’t be disappointed Our whole family now uses him
Dr. DeSalvo and his staff are the best at what they do. I have been going there for years whenever I need an adjustment or ongoing treatment for various ailments. Dr. DeSalvo’s approach is second to none. He has an amazing ability to pinpoint injuries and prescribe the proper treatment and strength exercises to get his patients back to a place of comfort and alignment. His staff is always so friendly and accommodating, and they have been able to get me in on a number of occasions on very short notice. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to DeSalvo Chiropractic, and happily refer them to anyone that is in need of chiropractic services. They are the BEST!
