Nutritional counseling is a holistic approach to health care that identifies and corrects imbalances in your diet to improve your physical, mental, and emotional function. Nutrition affects nearly every aspect of your health.
Whether your goal is to reduce chronic pain or manage a long-lasting condition, like diabetes, nutritional counseling can offer a number of health benefits.
Nutritional counseling offers several benefits for your overall health, including:
Carrying excess weight forces your body to work harder to perform its basic functions, such as movement, respiration, and digestion. Nutritional counseling can help you maintain a healthy weight to reduce health complications, like diabetes and certain types of cancer.
Nutritional imbalances can cause your energy levels to plummet. If you frequently feel fatigued, poor nutrition may be to blame. The team at Applewood Chiropractic can perform comprehensive diagnostic testing to pinpoint your nutritional imbalances and restore your energy levels.
Proper nutrition enhances nerve and immune function to reduce chronic pain. Likewise, improving your diet can help you lose weight. By maintaining a healthy weight, nutritional counseling can help relieve pressure from your joints and muscles, which reduces chronic pain.
Poor diet can increase your risk of several chronic diseases, including diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, stroke, and high cholesterol. Nutritional counseling not only helps prevent chronic disease, but it can also reduce your symptoms of risk of complications if you already have one.
Certain vitamins and minerals, such as calcium and vitamin D, support healthy bone tissue to protect and improve your musculoskeletal function. By improving your bone health through proper nutrition, you can help prevent fractures, osteoporosis, and other bone disorders.
Nutritional counseling is a multi-step process that begins with a thorough physical exam and a bioenergetic analysis. After a comprehensive physical evaluation and medical history review, the team may recommend additional testing, such as blood work, to create your individualized treatment plan.
In addition to a personalized diet plan, your chiropractor may recommend certain supplements, stretches, and exercises to improve your overall health and wellness.
