Eating Better this New Year?

Food image for Individual Page on NutritionThis is the time of year that almost everyone starts eating better.  Sadly it usually doesn’t last very long!  What can you do to make it permanent?  Find healthy food that you like (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 chronic health problems are a result of nutritional deficiencies.  Eating too much junk food and not enough nutrient rich foods. 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!

For this reason, nutritional supplementation can also be very beneficial, and for some 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!
