Eisen Family Chiropractic Center would like to help you on your journey towards optimal health. In order to care for you as a whole patient from the foundation, it is necessary to integrate nutrition into your wellness plan. The best way to get the nutrients you need is to consume whole foods. If we all ate perfectly, no supplementation would be needed. However, the majority of Americans do not get enough balanced nutrition due to various reasons. Our goal is to find fun and easy ways to incorporate a healthy mind-set for our patients.
Nutrition is a building block towards a healthier you. It is necessary to support body growth and repair as well as helping sustain your metabolism. If you do not give your body the proper nutrients, your body function cannot be maintained and your genetic potential will not be fully expressed. Dietary recommendations are the foundation of clinical nutrition, but you may need some supplementation as well. Eisen Family Chiropractic Center wants to break down common myths
Primary Guidelines of Diet:
– Eat foods as close to their whole, natural and unrefined state whenever possible
– Eat 50-75% of your diet
Reasons for Using Supplementation:
– Nutrients missing from diet (refined foods, store bought foods)
– Exposure to chemicals, allergens or infectious agents in environment
– Low levels of nutrition to restore reserves
– Low levels of nutrients due to illness recovery
– Using nutrients to offset or compensate for genetic errors of metabolism
Supplementation is needed for various factors; such as, stress, processing of foods and food additives or foods being grown on depleted soils. Clinical nutrition recommendations are determined by integrating information from your health history,
