A diet rich in whole foods offers many health benefits, including increased energy levels, improved digestion and a stronger immune system. Our nutrition counseling supports long-term medical weight loss by helping our patients adopt new, healthy eating habits. Dietary changes can also aid injury rehabilitation and support whole body health. For patients with unique nutrition needs, such as a nutrient deficient or an intolerance for certain ingredients, our nutrition counseling can help improve overall health.
Dietary Changes Help Patients with Healthy Weight Loss
Many people get stuck on a weight loss roller coaster, losing a few pounds one week and then gaining them back the next. Fad diets promise big results, but as soon as patients return to their regular eating habits, the weight piles back on. If this sounds like you, we can help. With nutritional counseling, we can pinpoint problems in our patients’ diets that are contributing to this weight gain. By gradually introducing dietary changes, we help patients see healthy living not as a ‘diet’ but as a ‘lifestyle.’ This is the best way to stop yo-yo dieting.
You may be suffering from a food intolerance, such as a gluten intolerance, that is also contributing to your weight gain and making weight loss more difficult. We will recommend specific dietary changes to help you not only lose weight, but also improve overall health.
Our chiropractor frequently recommend a detox diet to reset the metabolism and cleanse the body of excess toxins. Toxins from preservatives, artificial ingredients and the environment can slowly build up in the body over time. These toxins can overwhelm the body’s kidneys and other organs, leading to health problems and weight gain. A gentle detox diet is a safe and effective way to flush out excess toxins and reset the metabolism. Detoxing also helps patients make the shift to healthier eating habits, including a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and lean protein.
Dietary changes are important not only for weight loss, but also for overall health. For example, even patients who are at their ideal weight can benefit from a detox diet. Removing toxins from the body strengthens the immune system and reduces the risk for illness. By bringing nutritional balance back to the body, our patients enjoy more energy, suffer from fewer headaches, and experience less gastrointestinal upset.
Nutritional counseling can also help patients following an injury. For example, a diet rich in antioxidants helps to reduce internal inflammation. Our chiropractor frequently integrate nutritional counseling with chiropractic care services to help enhance a patient’s health following injury.
