Nutrition

Nutrition

We have all heard the old saying "garbage in, garbage out".  This definitely holds true for our food choices.  Just like your car, your body needs the appropriate fuel to run. What do you think would happen to your car if you put something other than gasoline in the tank?  You probably wouldn't get too far.  Unfortunately, people pay closer attention to the fuel they put into their cars than they do to the fuel that goes into their body.

Even if you make excellent food choices, you are still not benefiting from all the nutrients that our ancestors received.  Over farming, soil erosion, use of chemical pesticides/fertilizers and not rotating crops has depleted many of the nutrients out of our soil, and consequently, our food supply.  The apple of today is not as beneficial as the apple your great, great grandmother ate. That is why we believe it is essential to supplement your diet with high quality, whole food supplements. (For more information about our supplements, please refer to our Supplement link.)

Other steps you can take:

v  Eat organic foods.  Organic foods are grown without the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers.  Some tests have shown that organic foods have higher nutritional values, and cattle that have been raised organically, are generally healthier. Besides, eating non-organic meat will expose you to growth hormones and antibiotics that are extremely bad for your health.

v  Eat most of your foods raw.  Heating food over 115° will destroy vitamins and kill the digestive enzymes. If you must heat or cook your food, consider taking a whole food enzyme to aid with the digestive process.

v  Avoid processed foods!  Processed foods are stripped of their natural nutritional value.  Food manufactures will then add chemical vitamins and nutrients to the food to make it sound healthy.  The body does not know how to utilize these chemicals so it will try to eliminate them.

v  Purify!  It is very important to cleanse and purify your body on a regular basis.  We normally recommend completing a purification program anywhere from 1-4 times per year.  Our body was designed to naturally purify itself of unwanted toxins, however, with all the added pollutants in our air and food, our bodies are unable to keep up. A good purification program, like the one we offer through Standard Process®, will help the body cleanse and keep our organs operating at their peak performance.

These are just a few recommendations to improve your overall nutritional health.  You don't need to make drastic changes overnight to see results.  Start out small by eating a raw salad with your meals or replacing your afternoon candy bar with a piece of fruit.  Eventually you will start making better food choices and experience improved health.

Happy Eating!!!

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "Chiropractic care throughout my pregnancy was the best choice I ever made! I had a quick and easy delivery and feel so much better this time than with my first child. My one-week old was adjusted by Dr. Walsh and I noticed a difference in nursing him and his overall state of being that very afternoon. I recommend Dr. Walsh to every pregnant person I know! It really does make a difference."
