Benefits of Nutritional Counseling
With the appropriate nutrition received through nutritional counseling, the cells in your body receive the fuel they need to help your body function properly. Those that have received nutritional counseling often live longer, improve their concentration, sleep better, manage pain, and manage illness better. It helps patients understand that what they eat and how they exercise is essential to overall wellness. Overweight individuals can lose weight in a healthy way with nutritional counseling and proper exercise under medical supervision.
Nutrition counseling seeks to balance blood sugar levels with proper food and supplements, maintain a balance of the right minerals, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, and improve blood circulation. Our chiropractor will recommend eating fresh fruits and vegetables, salmon and cold-water fish, olive oil, healthy grains, low-fat cheese and yogurt, lean meats and poultry free of hormones and antibiotics. We will often recommend vitamins and supplements geared to your specific condition.
Our chiropractor will design a plan with specific exercises that you can do at home to help you lose weight. We may suggest walking, jogging, running, working out, swimming, biking, yoga, and other specific exercises. Often buying seasonal ingredients helps patients save money. Learn to plan healthy meals ahead by buying the ingredients you need. You’ll learn to look for healthy snacks and desserts for the week. Try to eat a vegetarian meal at least once a week. Use canned or fresh beans, canned fish, eggs, or peanut butter as excellent sources of protein. Stews, vegetable casseroles, salads, and soups make a good nutritious meal.
