Nutritional counseling is part of the mission of chiropractic care for total body wellness. Chiropractic care and holistic health involve treating the patient as a whole by assisting the body to heal naturally. An effective preventative health care plan incorporates the need for good nutrition, rest, exercise and regular spinal adjustments.
Our team of health and medical professionals at The Natural Health Project specialize in providing holistic nutritional consultations, with a focus on natural toxin free diets and supplements. While chiropractors prescribe natural, drug-free treatments their focus remains on the body’s innate ability to heal itself. To enable your body to do this, great care should be given to what you are fueling your body with. What you eat greatly impacts how the rest of your body functions and your overall health and wellness. In order to function to its optimum capacity, the body needs to absorb essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, minerals, proteins and various vitamins. These ensure healthy digestion, metabolizing and excreting which, in turn, leads to homeostasis–the body’s ability to regulate its inner environment and remain stable.
The first step in nutritional counseling and developing better nutritional habits is to analyze what you are doing with your current diet. What good habits do you have with your diet? What potential bad habits do you have that need addressing? After our first initial consultation, a member of our team will take the information provided and help you make a plan for positive changes. Every body is different and everyone has different goals for what they want to accomplish with their bodies. Through nutritional counseling, you begin to understand your individual body better and what it needs to accomplish your goals. Nutritional counseling will help you understand what percentage of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats you need to properly fuel you through your day.
At The Natural Health Project, our comprehensive guidelines extend beyond food and caloric intake, as we also offer expert recommendations on how to properly take vitamins and health supplements that will work best for your body. Through nutritional counseling you will learn which supplements play a vital role in ensuring that your body gets all the essential nutrients it needs. Nutritional supplements boost healing as minerals and vitamins speed to damaged sites and begin aiding in repair.
We use only 2 companies to promote our supplementation. Metagenics and Standard Process Laboratories. Both use clinical grade, all natural ingredients. Standard Process was founded in 1938, so they're the gold standard in nutritional supplements and can only be purchased by licensed health care providers.
When you are choosing your healthcare team, it is important to elect a qualified nutritional counselor to help you determine how you can achieve and maintain your health and wellness goals. When injuries strike, nutritional counseling can help you know how to integrate supplements for healing. When you have certain deficiencies, you nutritional counselor can help you to reduce them. As you age, your body will have different nutritional needs and requirements to stay strong and healthy. Your nutritional counselor can show you how to integrate those into your diet. If you suffer from an illness, your nutritional counselor can help you know what you can change or add in your diet to aid in your recovery. During a nutritional counseling session, you and a member of our team will discuss goals and goal making to help you have the best chance at success.
A dietary assessment is a proactive way for improving your health. If you or a loved one are currently suffering from disorders such as: Celiac Disease, Diabetes, or Hypoglycaemia, nutritional counseling can make dietary recommendations to help you feel better and enjoy your life more fully in a natural, organic way. Good nutrition helps you produce the energy required to fuel you through illness or just through a normal, busy day. Without proper nutrition, your health can drastically depreciate. Not practicing good nutritional habits can make you more susceptible to illness or disease. Some illnesses are actually caused by an unhealthy diet. Trans-fats present in processed foods and extra calories are largely responsible for the obesity epidemic in our country. Healthy eating has been proven to boost immunity and fight off disease. We can help you make those positive changes to experience these amazing benefits.
A shift toward more natural, raw foods is a shift toward a longer, healthier, more productive life. Natural enzymes boost digestion and fight chronic disease. A raw food diet can clear up headaches and allergies, boost immunity and memory, and improve arthritis and diabetes. You’ll also get nutritional perks from eating natural, raw foods. Most of what you eat will be high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and disease-fighting phytochemicals.
Some people think that if you are going to eat healthily you have to adopt a bland, tasteless diet. But choosing nutritious foods and menus doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste. You and your nutritional counselor can plan menus that are both nutritious and delicious.
By working with a Natural Health Project nutritional counselor, you will be able to feel your energy levels increase while your stress levels diminish. It won’t take long before you begin to feel a difference in what you feel you can do in a day. Nutritional benefits will trigger mood improvement, enhanced memory, and better concentration. When you feed your body, you feed your mind too.
Taking charge of your health can be difficult if you don’t know where to start. You might suspect that your diet could be causing problems, but you’re not so sure. Maybe you’re an athlete in need of an optimized nutrition program and you feel that your current diet may be holding you back. Whatever your goals or concerns, the Natural Health Project can help.
