A New Solution to a Serious Problem

Obesity is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the United States. Recent statistics show that more than 78 million people are affected by obesity, whether that's through diabetes, heart disease, cardiovascular issues, or even death. Millions try to lose weight every year to combat the negative effects that obesity brings about, but a large number of those people are unsuccessful. It can be easy for those without weight problems to say, "just lose the weight!" but unfortunately, weight loss isn't something that happens overnight. When done properly, it involves careful planning and professional help. When done incorrectly, it involves yo-yo dieting, fad diet solutions, and other unsafe methods.

Fad diets seen on TV can be encouraging, but the truth is most of these "programs" are less about healthy weight loss and more about losing weight fast. These unhealthy, unbalanced diets often foster weight gain, not weight loss over time.

Fortunately, more and more overweight adults and even children are turning to professionals for help, who not only help them achieve their weight loss goals but keep them on track and healthy for the long term. If you're looking for the highest quality medical weight loss in Isle of Palms, SC, look no further than Back 2 Health Physical Medicine.

Losing Weight and Getting Back 2 Health the Right Way

If you were to ask one of our experienced clinicians their tips for a healthy life, maintaining a healthy weight would be at the very top of the list. This is especially true given the prevalence of certain viruses like COVID-19, which can wreak havoc on the body of an unhealthy, overweight individual. Unfortunately, given the sheer number of diet plans and "miracle" weight loss supplements, dieting can be a confusing, counterproductive journey. To make matters worse, many of these weight loss programs are not medically tested or supervised, which is dangerous.

A Safe Solution to Long-TermWeight Loss

If you were to ask someone on the street to name a popular fad diet, they probably wouldn't have much trouble. From Atkins to South Beach and Keto to Paleo, we've all heard of at least one popular weight-loss trend. The problem with these diets is that they only work for some people. Even then, the results are often short-lived.

If you're wondering whether you have been on or are currently using a fad diet, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is there a "magic" food source that will melt the pounds off your body?
  • Is the speed of weight loss unnatural or unrealistic?
  • Can you achieve "weight loss" without proper diet and exercise?
 Chiropractic Care Isle Of Palms, SC

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, chances are it's a fad diet, and it most likely won't be very effective over the long run. With fad diets, balanced nutrition often takes the back seat to sketchy weight loss pills or extreme life choices - all of which are counterproductive to a healthy life.

If you have struggled with your weight for any length of time, there's no doubt you're stressed out trying to find an effective solution. You probably have many stories about following fad diets, taking unhealthy diet pills, or even dropping big bucks on expensive exercise equipment. If you're like most of our clients, you're still struggling with your weight, despite your best efforts. The common theme here is that all of your self-made attempts happened without the medical guidance of a true medical weight loss clinic in Isle of Palms, SC.

If this sounds like you, we've got great news. The safest, most effective solution to losing weight starts with the help of Back 2 Health's medical weight loss plans. Instead of choosing a fad diet, speak to one of our weight loss healthcare professionals. We can help you lose weight in a way that you find enjoyable, so you actually like

Factors That Contribute to Obesity

Obesity is a nuanced disease that involves excessive amounts of body fat. It's not just a cosmetic concern. It's a medical issue that raises a person's chance of severe diseases and health problems. Often, obese people have problems losing weight because of physiological, genetic, and environmental factors. There are many other contributing factors to weight gain, including:

 Physical Therapy Isle Of Palms, SC
Inactivity

People who live sedentary lifestyles will take in more calories than they burn off through exercise or day-to-day activities. Inactivity is a huge problem in today's society, especially with the constant presence of computers, smartphones, and tablets that encourage the user to stay glued to their screen.

 Chronic Pain Management Isle Of Palms, SC
Unhealthy Diet

If your daily food intake consists of high-caloric fast-food meals full of oversized portions, expect to gain weight quickly.

 Weight Loss Clinic Isle Of Palms, SC
Liquid Calories

Alcoholic and other high-calorie drinks like sodas cause people to intake large amounts of calories without ever feeling full. When combined with a poor diet and lack of water intake, consuming liquid calories can be a significant contributor to weight gain.

Medical Weight Loss Isle Of Palms, SC
Pregnancy

Weight gain is very common during pregnancy, but some women find it hard to lose the added pounds once they have given birth. With time, this weight gain will contribute to obesity.

 Chiropractic Medicine Isle Of Palms, SC
Lack of Sleep

When you don't get enough sleep, your whole body suffers. If you're only getting a few hours of sleep a night, you may notice increased appetite and even hormone changes. Both factors can contribute to obesity.

 Back Pain Isle Of Palms, SC
Smoking Cessation

Quitting smoking is one of the healthiest choices you can make as an adult. However, sometimes smoking cessation causes weight gain. For some, this weight gain gets out of control and leads to obesity. Often times this happens as former smokers use food to cope with their withdrawals.

 Knee Pain Treatment Isle Of Palms, SC
Stress

When you're stressed out, you may turn to a chocolate bar or cheeseburger as "comfort food" to deal with whatever problem you're facing. Turning to fast food and sweets is not a healthy way to deal with stress and can lead to obesity.

Consequences of Obesity

Being overweight is associated with several long-term health problems. Many of these problems rank among the nation's leading reasons for premature death. Generally, the more excess weight you carry around, the more likely you are to develop negative complications with your health.

Individuals who are clinically obese have a heightened risk of the following ailments:

 Chiropractic Care Isle Of Palms, SC
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

  • Cardiovascular Issues (stroke, heart attack, and more)
  • Acid Reflux and Heartburn

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Blood Clots
  • Fatty Liver Disease
  • Skin Infections
  • Incontinence from Stress
  • Breathing Problems
  • Cancer (colon, uterus, esophagus, cervix, pancreas, prostate, and more)
  • Severe Symptoms Resulting from COVID-19

The good news? Substantial weight loss is possible with diet, physical activity, and the help of a medical weight loss team. You do not have to be destined to live with obesity and a shorter life expectancy. Back 2 Health Physical Medicine is here to steer you down the path to a positive, healthy life for years to come.

Drive-By Truckers have announced their 14th album, Welcome 2 Club XIII, due July 3 via ATO (pre-order). The first single is the title track, an homage to the Muscle Shoals honky-tonk where DBT founders Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley's former band Adam’s House Cat got their start. "There were no cool bars in town and Club XIII was the best we had," Patterson said, "but it wasn’t all that good, and our band wasn’t particularly liked there. From time to time the owner would throw us a Wednesday night or let us open for a hair-metal band we were a terrible fit for, and everyone would hang out outside until we were done playing. It wasn’t very funny at the time, but it’s funny to us now."

"Cooley and I have been playing together for 37 years now," Patterson adds. "That first band might have failed miserably on a commercial level, but I’m really proud of what we did back then. It had a lot to do with who we ended up becoming."

The album was produced by longtime DBT collaborator David Barbe, and it features backing vocals by Margo Price, R.E.M.'s Mike Mills, and Schaefer Llana. Watch the Jason Shevchuk-directed video for the title track and check out the tracklist below.

DBT are also touring North America this spring with Lydia Loveless, including an Asbury Park show on April 29 at The Stone Pony. They've got another US run in the summer, including a Long Island show on August 8 at Patchogue Theatre (no opener announced). All dates are listed below.

Escaping the beach: Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island work to ease brutal summer traffic

The more popular Charleston’s beaches get, the worse traffic becomes. And there’s not a lot of room to grow.

Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island, in particular, have little room for traffic control. They each have two ways to get off the island, and one of those ways is to go to the other island. The end of a day at the beach — or the second raindrops start to fall — turns the islands into traffic logjams where it can take ages to escape back to the mainland.

While they know their critics want more access to the beaches, the mayors of both towns say they are barely able to manage the current deluge of visitors.

Traffic is “the big nut that we’re all trying to crack, quite honestly,” Isle of Palms Mayor Phillip Pounds said.

To manage those visitors, Sullivan’s Island Mayor Pat O’Neil said he wants to see more support from Charleston County and the state with handling traffic congestion.

“We’re providing beach access in our own way to the greater population of South Carolina one way or another,” he said “We’ve been trying to stress that beach traffic, when you get it right down to it, is the same as after a USC football game or a Clemson football game or a big concert someplace.

“There are protocols for managing those kinds of events. We submit that a busy afternoon at the beach ... is an event. We should treat it as such, but we need help from the county and the state to treat it as such.”

For now, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and Mount Pleasant are working together to better manage traffic flow on and off the islands. The local municipalities have also partnered with local TV station WCIV ABC News 4 to get traffic information to people.

“We’re working with (WCIV) at their initiation on a communications plan to really try to get the word out so people can get in the habit of, ‘Let’s check the traffic cameras. Let’s check the traffic reports before we start a 40-minute drive to the beach to avoid getting caught in traffic,’” O’Neil said.

The islands are also investing money in:

“We’re trying to enhance people’s visit to our island, knowing it’s going to be crowded and knowing there’s a lot of people that want to come here,” Pounds said.

Keeping it clean on Earth Day

It’s a day to give thanks to the land that grows our food, and it’s a day to give back to our Mother Earth.Of all the many ways to give back to our environment, picking up litter is of high importance for me.

Earth Day is here and it’s a perfect time to honor the beautiful outdoors that we enjoy on a daily basis in the Lowcountry. It’s a day to give thanks to the land that grows our food, and it’s a day to give back to our Mother Earth.

Of all the many ways to give back to our environment, picking up litter is of high importance for me. Not only is it a pet peeve to see trash on the ground, but I see litter as being disrespectful to our natural surroundings. I also think about the animals that have to live amongst the litter. When I see someone leave belongings behind at the beach, where do they think those will end up when the tide comes in? I think about the fish having to swim around and dodge soda cans or plastic cups.

How can we teach our children to be cognizant of the long-term detriments of litter? It is up to us as parents to show our children by example that keeping our planet clean is vital for maintaining the quality of life we enjoy for future generations.

From parks to rivers to beaches, opportunities abound year-round to get out with your family and get involved in cleaning up the community, including with various service groups.

Here are some local organizations that host litter cleanups in the Charleston area:

Keep Charleston Beautiful: An affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and Palmetto Pride, Keep Charleston Beautiful hosts a number of cleanup events in Charleston throughout the year and will also assist a group sponsoring a cleanup event.

Community Pride: Established in 1966, Community Pride Inc. of Charleston County coordinates and promotes Adopt-A-Highway cleanup efforts across the county and hosts six litter sweep dates throughout the year.

S.C. Sea Grant Consortium: The Beach Sweep/River Sweep is always held in September. This is South Carolina’s largest one-day volunteer waterway cleanup event.

Palmetto Pride: The Francis Marion National Forest Cleanup effort is one of the most successful cleanup programs that Palmetto Pride sponsors and it takes place every February. They also sponsor programs like Clean Teams, Palmetto Prideways and the Great American Cleanup.

Charleston Parks Conservancy: Trash along the West Ashley Greenway became one of the major focuses of this conservancy that is responsible for caring for the city parks in Charleston.

Isle of Palms Cleanup Crew: This local crew holds spring litter sweeps every other Monday from 6-7 p.m. on April 25, May 9 and May 23. Before each spring sweep, individuals and groups can attend a 5:30 p.m. welcome session when volunteers can learn more from Isle of Palms Cleanup Crew and the South Carolina Aquarium’s conservation team about the litter problem, its ecological impact and solutions. The spring welcome sessions are a great opportunity for groups from schools, civic organizations and businesses to get engaged. As the busy beach season heats up, Isle of Palms Cleanup Crew will hold sweeps weekly, Memorial Day to Labor Day, from 6-7 p.m. No advance registration is required, but if you have a large group coming, email Susan Hill Smith at susanhillsmith@gmail.com with information about your group and a head count estimate. The group meets at the beach access at the 1100 block of Ocean Boulevard on Front Beach, tucked between the City of Isle of Palms showers and facilities, next to Coconut Joe’s. Reusable buckets, bags, gloves, clipboards, pens and data collection sheets are provided. Each volunteer is offered a free IOP Cleanup Crew magnet that’s good for free parking during future sweeps.

Here's the most expensive suburb in the world

A California town that had a population of just 8,638 in 2020 is the clear-cut most expensive suburb in the entire United States, according to data from Redfin and Zillow in a recent Travel and Leisure list.

The median sale price of a home in Montecito, California was a whopping $5.6 million. It's located just 10 minutes away from Santa Barbara on the coast, and is about a two hour drive north of Los Angeles.

The median price in Montecito rose by 0.2% since March 2021, as the COVID-19 pandemic and rising inflation have had a major impact on the housing market.

According to Mortgage News Daily, the average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage began the year at 3.29%, but has since increased to 5.5% as of May 2, per CNBC.

Daryl Fairweather, Redfin's chief economist, explained how there has been some signaling that the housing market could be slowing down with less people searching for homes this year compared to last year.

"In addition, we are seeing a fast-growing amount of sellers dropping their prices. These are all things that show a cooldown in the market after more than 18 months of a housing frenzy," Fairweather said. "There's still way more demand for housing than supply, but these early signs of a slowdown indicate that sellers can no longer overprice their home."

The overall median price of a home in California was the second-highest in the country at $758,360, so the ridiculously high price of a house in Montecito should come as no surprise.

There were plenty of suburbs around the country that also had a median price well more than seven figures including, Paradise Valley, AZ ($3,487,300), Wesley Heights, District of Columbia ($2,452,000), Westport, CT ($2,410,000), Palm Beach, FL ($2,207,600), and Mercer Island, WA ($2,150,000).

Other suburbs in the United States that topped a million dollars included Greenwood Village, CO, Kaanapali, HI, Hinsdale, IL, Chevy Chase, MD, Brookline, MA, Big Sky, MO, Sea Isle City, NJ, Talaya Hill, NM, Rye, NY, Isle of Palms, SC, Brentwood, TN, West University Place, TX, Park City, UT, Great Falls, VA, and Moose Wilson Road, WY.

Hedgesville, WV had the lowest median price out of any suburb in the country at just $315,000. Other locations under $400,000 included St. Matthews, KY ($338,000), Palmer, AK ($349,450), Hernando, MS ($359,950), Johnston, IA ($387,000), and Oak Hills Place, LA ($390,811).
