Nutritional Counseling

Tired of living in pain or with subpar health in West Jefferson, OH? Dr. Mike Monroe and Dr. Kristy Monroe at West Jefferson Chiropractic offer nutritional counseling and other natural techniques to help.

3 Reasons Nutritional Counseling is Included in Chiropractic Care

If you or someone you know has visited a chiropractor, that chiropractor might have recommended eating or cutting out certain foods. This can seem confusing, as you visited a chiropractor – not a nutritionist. The truth is, though, that nutritional counseling is a vital component in health and healing. Learn more in the guide below from Dr. Mike and Dr. Kristy at West Jefferson Chiropractic.

1. Food Has Healing Power

You’ve probably heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Or you may have memories of adults reminding you to eat your vegetables because they’re good for you. Both of these statements have a great deal of truth to them.

The human body needs various vitamins, minerals, and nutrients – all of which are found in foods. Chiropractors typically recommend foods that have anti-inflammatory properties and those that are good for joint and bone health.

2. Food Can Also Be Harmful

Some foods can create undesirable effects. You are no doubt aware that eating too much sugar is bad for your health. However, did you know that some foods can actually increase inflammation? When a chiropractor recommends cutting down on a specific food or eliminating it, it’s typically something that is contributing to the symptoms and condition you are suffering from.

3. Weight Is a Factor

Your body is only able to healthily support a specific weight range. Anything above that range can put undue pressure and strain on the bones, joints, discs, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. If your condition, injuries, or symptoms are partly or wholly due to weight, your chiropractor will provide guidance to lose excess weight to improve your musculoskeletal health.
