One of the basics of chiropractic care is the belief that to achieve complete wellness a whole body approach is required. In addition to hands-on treatments like chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, and acupuncture often lifestyle changes are called for, including changing the way a patient eats. What – and the way – a person eats can have a major impact on their health, which is why, at Hopkins Family Chiropractic we offer extensive Nutritional Planning services.
What is Nutritional Planning?
Do you really need to be taught how to eat? After all, it’s something you’ve been doing since you were an infant! Increasingly, however, the answer is yes. These days there is so much misinformation and myth out there about what is, or isn’t, good for you in terms of nutrition that it is all too easy to become confused.
Nutritional counseling is a specific, science, research and education backed process that evaluates a patient’s current diet. That done a plan is formulated to not only improve the quality of the foods and beverages a patient consumes but help them learn about the potential healing effects of making these diet changes.
Why Chiropractic and Nutritional Planning Are Perfect Partners
It may sound unusual at first, getting diet advice from a chiropractor. That’s far from the case though. Over the decades the significant relationships between what we eat and the way we feel are becoming better and better understood. Not just in terms of maintaining a healthy weight but also improving health and preventing disease. For all of these reasons and more many chiropractors – including our own staff – are now offering nutritional counseling making use of the latest theories and techniques.
