for Better Health
The fact is, over the past few decades, good health and fitness have gradually become the exception, rather than the norm.
Health is our first freedom - One of the first things we need to do is become more responsible stewards of our own well-being. We can’t ignore our health problems for months and years on end; we can’t keep settling for prescriptions that suppress or mask our symptoms without addressing the root causes of those problems. It’s estimated that more than 90 percent of doctors’ office visits are lifestyle- and stress-related — yet more than 73 percent of those visits result in medication. * And with that medication in hand, a lot of us figure we can put off making any actual life changes for that much longer, until we find we need another drug, or surgery, or worse.
Look, if getting healthy in our culture were easy, everyone would be doing it. And, clearly, everyone is not.
That’s why, in many ways, pursuing a healthy lifestyle amounts to a revolutionary act. It’s going to take learning new skills and confronting old habits. How? By getting over our love affair with fast foods and sedentary entertainments. By learning to cook and taking up active pastimes. By getting more rest. By connecting with health professionals who know something about supporting health, not just treating disease. By making more thoughtful choices, by putting our money where our mouth is, and by doing a thousand other sensible things we’ve been putting off for way too long now.
It can be done, and there’s nothing more worth doing. Because when you change your health, you change your life, and the lives of everyone around you, for the better.

"I can honestly say that I finally know how to eat healthy and not have to count points for the rest of my life and so for that, I wanted to write you a quick note to say how thankful I am! This program has changed my life and makes me so happy! Thank you for offering this program at your clinic and more so, for being such a helpful, and motivating yet relaxed coach through this transformation. I could never have done this without you! Thank you, thank you,thank you!"

"If you are ready to fully commit to the Ideal Protein protocol, you will not be disappointed! The science behind this wonderful program cannot be refuted—if you stick to it you will see amazing, immediate results.
Other weight-loss programs had worked for me, but none of them taught me how to eat to keep the weight off long-term. I began the IP journey March 29, 2012 and in less than 4 short months I lost 50 pounds, greatly reduced my body fat percentage and went from a size 14/16 to a size 8/10. I woke up each morning ready to take on the day with increased vitality and energy. I can honestly say that not once during my time on IP did I feel hungry to the point of being uncomfortable or wanting to quit the program. There were many tasty and easy-to-prepare food choices available that made it so easy to stay on protocol. The education that I received from my Coaches Leslie and Heather throughout my journey is the main reason I know my long-term success.
All the Banic Chiropractic staff were welcoming and helpful from day one and their new downtown Issaquah location is convenient and beautiful. I hope my personal success encourages others to give Ideal Protein a try—it works!"
