Nutritional counseling is a key component both for general health and to supplement chiropractic care. That’s why Total Chiropractic Care provides patients at our Medford chiropractic clinic with nutritional programs carefully structured to meet their individual needs.
Chiropractic care works to help patients achieve wellness and total health. By providing nutritional recommendations specific to your situation, the chiropractic health professionals at Total Chiropractic Care will help you regain optimal health.
How Nutritional Counseling Works
Nutritional counseling supports your body to better manage stress, sleep better, maintain a healthy immune system and control weight. It also supports injury recovery because antioxidants and lean protein assist with cellular repair and lower internal inflammation. A proper diet can improve or prevent conditions such as obesity, diabetes, coronary artery disease and conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system.
According to NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), natural products are the most common complementary health treatment in the United States. By “natural products” the study means dietary supplements other than vitamins and minerals.
Why Nutritional Counseling is Important
Good nutrition helps maintain a healthy weight, which in turn reduces strain on the back and joints. Processed foods, preservatives and eating excessive sugar – and sugar is hidden in a lot of foods – can lead to fatigue and decreased energy. Nutritional counseling can help you make better choices with simple dietary changes that improve general health.
Nutritionally Deficient Foods in The Modern World
Unfortunately, modern life makes it far too easy to eat nutritionally deficient foods, and food myths can make things worse. The chiropractic nutritional counseling you get at Total Chiropractic Care will clearly explain what you actually need to know and easy steps you can take to get started. Better eating habits, combined with dietary supplements if needed, will help you maintain good health and support healing if an injury is involved.
