Eating Better….You Really Can Do It!

June 8, 2017, 6:01 pm

Eat Better…you really can! Most people yo-yo diet and permanent weight loss and better health seem elusive.  What can you do to make eating better permanent?  Find healthy food that you like Nutrition and Chiropractic, Vegetables from Garden image(it IS possible) and slowly replace the junk…make it a lifestyle change, a little at a time.  That is the only way to have changes that last for your health, your weight, and how you feel every day.

Many of our society’s chronic health problems are a result of nutritional deficiencies.  Eating far too much junk food and not nearly enough nutrient rich foods. If organs in the body are not getting the nutrients they need, over time they begin to break down and wear out, ultimately leading to disease. The best source of nutrition is from healthy food.  However, the typical diet of most Americans is not healthy!

For this reason, nutritional supplementation can also be very beneficial, and for some people it is a must.  However, the quality of a nutritional 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, whereas whole food supplements contain the whole vitamin complex (the vitamin plus what the body needs to actually use it).  Whole food nutritional supplements are far superior to synthetic vitamins.

Proper nutrition, in addition to regular adjustments by your chiropractor can help prevent disease, balance the body so it can heal itself and overcome physical and emotional stress and illnesses, and most importantly…you will feel better!

At The Institute, in addition to chiropractic and wellness therapies, 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.  Good Nutrition and Chiropractic Care really do make a Healthy Lifestyle!

Stop Wasting Money on Synthetic Vitamins

March 24, 2016, 4:45 pm

Food and herbal supplement image for Individual Page on DetoxificationDid you know that most of the money the American public spends on vitamins is wasted money on synthetic vitamins?

Some vitamin supplements are made from whole foods and some are synthetically made chemicals.   Food contains complex blends of vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and other factors.  However, synthetic vitamins only contain one small chemically made portion of the vitamin complex.  For example: The FDA has classified the chemical “ascorbic acid” as vitamin C. While ascorbic acid is part of the vitamin C complex, naturally occurring vitamin C also contains mixed bioflavonoids, K, J and P factors, and tyrosinase (a copper bearing enzyme), as well as many unknown factors yet to be discovered.   The body cannot use ascorbic acid in the same way it uses the whole Vitamin C complex 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.  Whole food supplements allow the body to get the whole vitamin complex in its most useful form.

What to do when you are at the health food store: READ LABELS!  Or, get your supplements from a chiropractor or other physician who is very knowledgeable about nutrition and supplementation.  The labels on synthetic vitamins will have a long list of chemical components that are very hard to pronounce.  Whole food supplements will have a long list of FOOD.  Whole food supplements will also have much lower values listed for the vitamins it contains.  This is NOT a problem because you will get more use from these vitamins because they are much more usable to the body.  Nature didn’t make food with thousands of mg of vitamins (or one chemical component of it).  The body needs the whole vitamin complex, not just a component of it.  For this reason, the synthetic one-a- day type multivitamin with everything from A to Zinc that is recommended for “everyone” is not a good choice.
