Good nutrition and supplementation are key healing!
Nutrition can also be used to treat illness and injury by assisting the body's innate capacity to recover. In addition, research has shown that poor diet and nutritional imbalances can contribute to a number of serious illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. An overall healthcare program, including a nutritional component, can help heal injury faster, maintain good health, and minimize the risk of developing chronic conditions. A good nutrition program takes your specific diet and personal nutritional needs into account.
Macro and micro nutrients, quantities, eating habits, supplementation, and hydration (and even sleep) are the fuel our bodies need to run well. Study after study show that even small changes can make a big difference. And often it’s getting back to basics that help reset our nutritional mindset. Good input equals good output! With that said, even if we eat a diet rich in vegetables, low in saturated fats and high in fiber, it is almost impossible to get all the nutrition we need from our modern food sources. So supplementation with micro-nutrients, for example, can be great way to get the components of essential nutrition and/or fill in the gaps to make them readily available for the body's use.
Whether you’re visiting ChiroMedica for a specific injury or condition or for an overall improved healthcare plan, we’ll consult with you on better nutrition and diet to help achieve your goals.
Nutritional counseling works well in conjunction with Chiropractic Medicine and Sports Medicine.
