Many people don’t consider the impact that nutrition has on their overall health and wellness. Nutrition is a crucial aspect of our overall health and goes hand in hand with chiropractic care. Many people do not have the proper education to maintain good nutrition habits and are unaware of what types of food our bodies need to run.
You Are What You Eat
“You are what you eat,” is an old saying that is nevertheless true in many ways. According to recent studies, chronic inflammation is a source of many illnesses; such as arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and chronic pain. Different factors can contribute to chronic inflammation – including lack of exercise, stress, and poor nutrition. This is where “you are what you eat” comes into play. If you aren’t eating the right foods with the nutrients your body needs, you won’t be performing at your best.
This is where you may be wondering, ‘what does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care?’ When you are seeking chiropractic care it is often due to an injury to the muscles. This injury can be a strain, a separation, a tear, or any other type of muscle injury. Chiropractic care can help patients with these types of injuries. However, nutrition goes hand in hand with this type of care. The diet you are on can help assist in the recovery process for muscle injuries.
Without proper nutrition, chiropractic care can only go so far.
