nutritionChiropractic care involves treating the person as a whole by assisting the body to heal itself naturally. We know nutrient dense food intake coupled with rest, exercise, and spinal adjustments are an integral part of preventative health care.

In order to function to its optimum capacity, the body needs to absorb essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals. These ensure healthy digestion, metabolizing, and excreting leading to proper homeostasis. This refers to the body’s ability to regulate its inner environment to ensure stability as it responds to changes in the external environment. Consistently poor intake including foods high in sugars and processed foods can contribute to other health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

While chiropractors prescribe natural, drug-free treatments, their focus remains on the body’s ability to heal itself. With factors such as food, exercise, rest and hereditary issues affecting optimum body functioning, chiropractors will consider a patient’s medical history, past injuries, present symptoms, and postural analysis. Further physical, neurological and orthopedic examinations may be included. Depending on the clinical findings, patients may be referred to other health practitioners for additional consultations.

Persistent nutritional deficiencies are commonplace in the world today. As such, nutritional therapy has evolved and grown to include specialized treatments. Preventative health care aims to address stressful environments and the lack of essential nutrients avaibable to promote long term, sustainable changes for better health.
