Feeling What You're Eating

There’s more to alleviating pain than general chiropractic medicine. Patients who express problems with neck pain and back pain come to Dynamic Chiros to improve their spinal health through stretching, exercise, adjustments and more, but a change in diet is often necessary to help improve the body’s natural healing response. While certain foods and supplements can be beneficial to you, foods that produce inflammation within the body (such as processed foods) can counteract the healing process. In order to get the most out of your chiropractic healing plan, your chiropractor will walk you through the type of diet you should maintain into order to maximize your personal healing response.

How Does Nutritional Counseling Work?

At Dynamic Chiros, we will help you determine and achieve tailored health goals in regards to your nutrition. We’ll talk about your day-to-day diet to see if it is helping or hindering your recovery. We can help you identify if and how your health issues can be changed with diet, supplements, etc., and we’ll work with you to tailor a wellness program that will allow you to reach your health goals and improve your overall health. And we assure you we can help you find a diet that works for you that can actually be delicious and nutritious at the same time — you won’t be stuck eating nothing boiled chicken and steamed broccoli for the rest of your life.

Diet And Inflammation

Because so much of the neck and back pain treated by chiropractic medicine is the result of inflammation, a patient needs to do everything he or she can to help reduce the problem, and that often involves the food they eat. Once we recognize how what we eat can affect our immune system, we can truly begin the healing process.

Highly processed foods are the leading contributors to inflammation through diet. Simple, everyday foods like pasta, bread and crackers (or any food containing gluten) may seem innocuous, but they can wreak havoc on your immune system. The same can be said of anything with sugar — especially foods with refined sugar (such as soda and candy) can also lead to inflammation of the joints and affect the healing process, lengthening your recovery time and contributing to poor health in general.

What Kind Of Foods Can I Eat To Reduce Inflammation?

At Dynamic Chiros, we’ll help you map out more than just a nutrition plan. We’ll help you understand exactly what the foods you eat can do to your body, as well as enable you to create meals that are as good for your taste buds as they are for your immune system. A low-carb diet is a great place to start, especially one focused on fruits, vegetables, fish, whole grains and nuts (like the keto diet). A high-carb diet causes your body to produce more inflammatory and sugar-based chemicals, such as glucose and insulin, and too much of those can cause serious immune system problems. A low-carb diet, on the other hand, helps your body create less troublesome chemicals, and you start relying on different nutritional compounds for energy instead of sugar. Once you start adhering to a diet such as this, you can begin to take control of your body’s natural inflammatory response. We’ll work with you to find the perfect nutritional plan that focuses on foods that benefit your immune response, rather than impede it

What Are The Other Benefits Of Nutritional Counseling?

Obviously, what we put into our bodies affects more than inflammation. With help from nutritional counseling by Dynamic Chiros, you can alleviate the causes and symptoms of a variety of health issues. First and foremost is weight — people who have a hard time maintaining a healthy weight can experience better health, more energy and weight loss when they stick to a better nutritional regimen. Patients who have undergone nutritional counseling have also reported a boost in their overall immunity, decreased levels of anxiety and overall allergy relief.

Nutritional counseling has also shown improvements in patients suffering from a variety of chronic conditions, including:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Menopause 
  • Insomnia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Rosacea
  • Poor digestion
