Diet and Nutrition
They're right. You ARE – and WILL BE – what you eat.
nutritionWhat aspect of our health do we influence daily? Nutrition.

Foods. Fluids. Supplements. Dietary aids. Medicines. All contribute to the bio-chemical makeup of our bodies.

Many people do not maintain healthy diets and may suffer from digestive disorders and other conditions aggravated by poor eating habits. Studies show that 80% of American adults are chronically dehydrated. The balance of macro-nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats), as well as micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and enzymes), is essential for the cells and organs of the body to function properly. Poor supplies of macro- and micro-nutrients to the cells and tissues make it difficult for the body to work properly. Sluggish cell activity may result in overall body fatigue, susceptibility to infection, chronic inflammatory disorders - including digestive problems, arthritis, and allergies.

In the emerging field of nutrigenomics studies show that all 'sizes' of nutrients do not fit all people. In other words, every individual has an optimal caloric standard, as well as a nutritional combination that best suits them. The science of nutrigenomics advocates that we adopt an ODA (Optimal Daily Allowance) to reflect this finding, and abandon the model of RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) that is based on a generalized global 'minimum' of nutrients necessary to avoid disease.

The current so-called "Modern American Diet" is high in meat sources, processed foods, sweets, colas, alcohol, coffee, tobacco, and pharmacologic medications. This diet contributes to a high-acid (low pH) condition in the body that injures cells and impairs the ability of the body's organs - including the brain - to function optimally.

The American diet and its resulting high levels of systemic acids is made worse with the sedentary lifestyle many people have adopted. Inactivity does further damage to the internal workings of the body. Lack of fresh air, shallow breathing, and reduced oxygen/carbon dioxide exchange add to the body's acidic state.

Systemic acidosis is associated with chronic inflammatory disorders (arthritis, lumbago, headache), auto-immune diseases (RA, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia), cardio-vascular disorders (leading to increased risk of heart attack and stroke) and even certain types of cancer.

The good news is that we are ever changing organisms and many high-risk conditions can be reversed with improvements in diet and nutrition.

At Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture, with re-education, instruction, and routine monitoring we help patients recover their health. We recommend dietary changes, vitamin and mineral supplements and new eating habits.

Increasing intake of healthy proteins like chicken, fish, or non-meat sources such as beans and nuts; fresh leafy green vegetables; complex carbohydrates, and thirst-quenching health drinks invigorate the cells, the organs, and the entire body.

With a helping hand, food choices and eating habits improve. Results become evident with more energy, less pain, clearer mental function and lost inches.

A healthy diet that includes appropriate, individually prescribed nutritional supplements, is essential to rebuilding lasting health and well-being. No one is 'put on a diet'. We educate and encourage informed healthy choices. As you learn about and make improved food choices, you will begin to look better and feel healthier.

Recapturing the Lost Vitality of Youth
01 Mar 2019 18:26 chiropractor park slope

Vitality is a state of mind As we age, our bodies begin to slow and require maintenance while our minds become preoccupied with the many concerns of the day. Often these rhythms ebb and flow between the demands of work and home, sleep and diet, being social and alone time; it's a balancing act that sometimes stacks odds against us. In moments both high and low, your  [ ... ]
