Nutritional Counseling for Better Health
It is unlikely that nutritional counseling is the first thing a person thinks of when they hear the word chiropractor. Yet, proper nutrition is as much a part of the comprehensive approach of chiropractic medicine as a musculoskeletal adjustment. The talented staff and doctors at Back On Track Chiropractic & Wellness in Birmingham, AL understand the importance of good nutrition in overall wellness and have helped our patients obtain both for several years.
Read on to learn more about how nutritional counseling at our offices can help you improve your quality of life.
Why Choose Nutritional Counseling?
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), nutritional supplement use is the most common complementary health approach used in the United States. This is for good reason.
Using a nutritional supplement is proven to encourage gut health. Gut health, in turn, is known to be vitally important to the overall wellness of the human body. Thus, maintaining and improving the health of the body’s biochemical processes – the organs and their functions – as well as the biomechanical elements – bones, tendons, muscles, and ligaments – is essential for proper alignment and ideal healing and wellness.
That is where chiropractic nutritional counseling comes into the picture.
Where Chiropractic Comes In …
Based on a study conducted by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE), 97 percent of chiropractors use nutritional supplementation, dietary recommendations, and nutritional counseling in their practice. These techniques pair perfectly with the basic nature of chiropractic medicine which is to focus on the relationship between function and structure and emphasizes whole body non-invasive methods of treatment.
The point of chiropractic nutritional counseling is not to lose weight for aesthetic purposes. Rather, weight loss is a welcomed bonus to the restoration of the body to its optimal level of function. By returning the body’s structures to prime function, chiropractic treatment and nutritional counseling can help to shed any extra pounds a patient may be carried via the body’s natural weight management efforts.
