NUTRITION & CHIROPRACTIC: WHY IT MATTERS
You go to the chiropractor to get adjusted, removing those pesky subluxations that affect your body’s ability to heal and function well. But did you know you can go to your chiropractor for nutritional care, as well?
According to a study from the National Institute of Health, 80% of chiropractors from a New York State study reported using nutritional counseling in their practice.
Chiropractors practice the concept of holistic medicine, which provides care for the entire body instead of concentrating on a disease’s symptoms. Part of holistic medicine includes nutrition, which uses food to bring health and wellness to the body. Putting the two together, along with other holistic methods such as massage or cranial sacral therapy, allows chiropractic care and nutritional counseling to provide the holistic approach more people are seeking.
Seaman’s article “The Diet-Induced Proinflammatory State: a Cause of Chronic Pain and Other Degenerative Diseases,” published in the journal Manipulative Physiological Therapy, states that a “substantial amount of research exists to suggest that dietary changes reduce systemic inflammation which, in turn, alleviates pain and other clinical symptoms caused by inflammation.”
Also, according to a study by the Colorado National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, eating more organic fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and omega-3 fatty acids, combined with avoiding processed foods and drinking more water, helps to reduce inflammation, which can help relieve the symptoms of autoimmune conditions.
Chiropractors do this because they are required to study nutrition as part of their schooling in chiropractic. Chiropractors study nutrition to better understand how your subluxations could be affected by the food you eat.
These vitamins and supplements are made from plants that we consume as food (or, we should, at least). Medical doctors, on the other hand, are not required to study nutrition or how vitamins and supplements benefit their patients’ health.
