Wellness Wednesday: Nutrition and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment rests upon the understanding that the spine's ability to function impacts all of the body's systems -- which in turn influences the spine's health. When talking about someone's health, it is hard not to mention nutrition. Food is a major part of our day. Whether we are preparing our food, buying groceries, or thinking about our next meal, food is often on our minds. The problem is, are we choosing the right foods to fuel our bodies? Life is very fast paced and it's easy to choose the quicker food options versus the healthy food options. 

Chiropractors understand how intricately the body's systems work together. The foods a patient eats can have a powerful impact on the neuromuscular system, which means changes in diet can dramatically enhance the effectiveness of chiropractic techniques.

Inflammation caused by dietary factors can aggravate many of the conditions chiropractors treat, including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, scoliosis, and neuritis. By combining nutritional counseling with chiropractic techniques, we can minimize systemic inflammation and thereby reduce pain as well as other symptoms.

One of the hardest parts about choosing the "right" food is being knowledgeable about it all. It is easy to choose a pre-made dinner because all of the hard-work and planning is taken out of it for us. Dr. Derenzo is offering a nutritional class this Saturday, August 27th from 1:00 - 4:00. The class will go over many different food and nutritional topics to help you understand what to choose and why. Eating healthy doesn't have to be hard and the more knowledgeable we are about it, the easier it is to make healthy choices. 

Join us Saturday at the Holistic Center for Mind, Body, and Spirit, located in Chassell. Call Vitality Chiropractic and Wellness at 523-7442 to reserve your spot today!
