Detoxification…The Natural Approach

June 19, 2015, 4:53 pm

The body has natural built-in methods of ridding itself of toxins and waste products.  We are exposed to toxins and create waste products within our bodies on a Food and herbal supplement image for Individual Page on Detoxificationdaily basis.  If the body’s natural detoxification systems are not working very well, these same toxins and pollutants can build up over time.  Some toxins come from external sources like air and water pollution, and chemicals and preservatives in the food we eat, while others are the natural result of bodily functions that must be excreted from the body.  If the body is unable to rid itself of these poisons due to poor function or to toxic overload, this can lead to inflammation, pain, and numerous disease processes.

At the Institute of Chiropractic & Acupuncture Therapy we specialize in various ways of assisting the body in ridding itself of toxins.  Some of these include nutritional and dietary programs that feed the body the necessary nutrients it has been deprived of, and that will get the liver and kidneys functioning properly again to filter poisons out of the body.  Others are more specific and involve Computerized Health Analysis to find what specific toxins are creating problems (heavy metals, chemicals, parasites and other infections like viruses and bacteria).  Through the computer testing we can then identify specific homeopathic remedies, herbs, and nutritional supplements needed to facilitate the detoxification process.

There are many different detoxification “cleanses” out there, and while many are beneficial, some of them can be very stressful on the body.  Our goal at The Institute is to find and address what each individual’s needs are, and what a person is able to handle or tolerate without creating too much stress or other problems in the detoxification process.

We provide service to all areas of the Salt Lake Valley including West Jordan, South Jordan, Sandy, and Draper. We also have clients that come from as far as Utah County, Logan, and even some from out of state.  Come experience the difference at The Institute!

What Conditions Can Chiropractic Help With?

June 8, 2015, 10:00 pm

Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors and have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

Many people come to see us because they have had little or no response to medical treatment or other chiropractic treatments.  Here are some common conditions we see in our clinic:

Headaches                               Chronic Fatigue Syndromeadjhands

Back and neck pain                   Fibromyalgia

Auto injuries/whiplash               Hormone Imbalances

Sports Injuries                          Digestive issues

Depression                               Allergies

Arthritis

The goal of our clinic is to help our patients become empowered with their health, achieving their optimal wellness goals.  If you are suffering needlessly from pain, have a condition that has not responded well to medical care or other treatment, or are trying to achieve optimal wellness in your life, chiropractic can help you on the road back to better health!

Did You Know? You REALLY ARE What You EAT!

June 2, 2015, 1:06 pm

Many chronic health problems are a result of nutritional deficiencies.  If organs in the body are not getting the nutrients they need, over time they begin to wear out and break down, ultimately leading to disease. The best source of nutrition is from healthy food.  However, the typical diet of most Americans is not healthy!

Most people eat lots of refined carbohydrates, refined sugars, and bad fats in their diets….lots of junk food.  Most people don’t eat enough fiber, fruits and vegetables, or healthy fats and proteins.  And many people don’t know how to make healthy choices about their food.  Choosing whole foods, unprocessed and in their natural state has far superior nutritional benefits than refined and processed foods.

Nutritional supplementation can be very beneficial, and for some it is a must.  However, the quality of a supplement is extremely important.  Some supplements are made from whole foods and some are synthetically made chemicals.   Synthetic vitamins only contain one small chemically made portion of the vitamin complex.  For example, the body cannot use the chemical “ascorbic acid” (marketed as Vitamin C) in the same way it uses the whole Vitamin C complex found in food because a single synthetic “vitamin” does not have all the components contained in food.  In fact, many recent studies are showing that synthetic vitamins are actually creating more health problems than they are helping.  Whole food nutritional supplements are far superior to synthetic vitamins, just as whole foods are far superior to processed and refined foods.  Whole food supplements allow the body to get the whole vitamin complex in its most useful form.

At the Institute our chiropractor, Dr. Burrup has the ability to evaluate your nutritional supplements for quality as well as the ability to check for what your nutritional needs are.  Dr. Burrup educates and counsels our patients on how to make healthy lifestyle and diet choices, leading to more energy, fewer health problems, weight loss (or gain when needed), and overall better health.  What are your specific nutritional needs and is your diet and supplementation meeting them?
