The Best Whole Body Vibration Machine: Weight Loss + Balance & More

​Increased weight loss, improved bone density, increase balance and blood flow...

These are just some of the benefits of using a whole body vibration machine. 

​But maybe you are wondering: 

Are these benefits too good to be true?

How can I get these results? 

Will ​it work for me? 

If so, which whole body vibration machine is the best?

These are exactly the questions we are going to answer today. 

This article will give you the scientific overview including how and why I use vibration therapy in certain patients for an added boost to weight loss and other treatments.

​But I need to be honest with you and say this right away:

If you are looking for a quick fix, miracle weight loss cure this is not it.

But if you are looking to augment your weight loss results, if you are ready to make changes to your health and want to understand how the whole body vibration machine can make your workouts far more efficient and effective then this is the information you are looking for...

If you want to skip the science and the talk you can find my recommendation here (but read below to see how I recommend you use it). ​

Understand how to lose weight [the interplay of hormones and obesity]

When treating any medical condition it is absolutely essential to understand the basic physiology or reasons why it occurs. That means you have to be asking the right questions in order to get the right answers.

When it comes to obesity conventional medicine hasn’t been asking any questions in over 40 years. If you are overweight and go to your doctor you will get the same advice: eat less and exercise more, the so-called ‘calories in, calories out’ model. The problem is this: patients have been following their advice and as a result they are more sick than they have ever been:
