Nutritional Counseling and Products From Our Brunswick, ME, Chiropractor
On the surface, it seems obvious that proper nutrition does the body good. Unfortunately, identifying and supplying nutrients you are deficient in is not always a simple process. Whether you're struggling with a particular health challenge or you just want to make sure you're experiencing optimal wellness, you could benefit tremendously from our nutritional services here at Wellness & Chiropractic Care. Our chiropractor has years of experience providing residents of Brunswick, ME, and the surrounding areas with chiropractic care and nutritional counseling.
Nutrition and the Body
Everybody needs the right balance of nutrients in their diet. These substances provide the raw materials for the body to fuel up, repair itself, and maintain its countless biological processes. Proper nutrition includes a mix of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, and water. In addition to these macronutrients, you also need the right amounts of micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Even a slight deficiency in one of these nutrients can have profound consequences for your health.
Food producers and distributors do not make it easy to eat a nutrient-rich diet. Many people have gotten used to picking up whatever fatty, greasy, or carb-heavy food that they can buy and eat on the run. Pre-packaged foods, while convenient, usually have lots of salt, sugar, and preservatives instead of the nutrients your body really needs. These kinds of foods also promote obesity, a gateway to conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, and arthritis of the weight-bearing joints.
Supplements and Guidance to Enhance Your Chiropractic Care
At Wellness & Chiropractic Care, we are concerned with whole-body health. Our chiropractor can evaluate your weight, eating habits, vital signs, and medical history to determine where you need to improve your nutrition. We can then advise you on smart changes that you can make to your current shopping list and meal preparation methods. At the same time, we can perform chiropractic adjustments to help your nervous system coordinate all of your internal functions more efficiently, helping you get the most out of your new nutritional program.
Even the most well-balanced diet may still end up lacking in sufficient quantities of certain critical nutrients. We can compensate for these shortcomings by prescribing high-quality nutritional supplements from Innate Choice and Standard Process. There is no testing required for the nutritional supplements. You may also benefit from Standard Process's photomorphogenesis. These nucleic acid extracts can greatly accelerate cellular regeneration and tissue rebuilding – a critical benefit for injury rehabilitation as well as everyday maintenance of physical systems. The supplements are not prescribed during the initial chiropractic exam, they require a separate consultation usually performed after the initial twelve visits.
