Nutrition and Chiropractic: A Healthy Lifestyle

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!

For this reason, nutritional supplementation can 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.  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.  Whole food nutritional supplements allow the body to get the whole vitamin complex in its most useful form.

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!
