Nutrition’s Role in Chiropractic
The body is innately intelligent and designed to be not only self-healing and self-regulating, but also a vehicle to harbor all of life’s unlimited potential. In order to receive the full potential of a chiropractic adjustment as well as food, one should lead a lifestyle that includes proper sleep, hydration, a positive mental attitude, and most importantly, proper nourishment and nerve supply.
“Nutrition is a crucial element of our health. What we put into our bodies is directly related to our health status, and how our body is able to perform necessary processes. We look to our food as not only fuel for our bodies, but as sources for necessary nutrients to keep our organs functioning, our bodies moving, and our brains operating.”
Proper nutrition is a necessary health behavior to encourage musculoskeletal health. If you are seeking chiropractic care to recover from an injury or even just to maintain musculoskeletal health, nutrition becomes even more important. Nutrition and chiropractic care are interwoven to the point where even the slightest nutritional mishap can take away from all the good work you have done with HealthMax Center.
A body that is fed whole foods and whole food nutritional supplements can utilize their macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals to build and rebuild all the tissues of the body; the very same tissues that receive nervous system impulses. Does healthy tissue receive a chiropractic adjustment better than damaged or diseased tissue? The body is self-healing and self- regulating when it is free of nerve interference and properly fed.

Nutrition and chiropractic care go hand in hand. Without proper nutrition, chiropractic care can only do so much. It is important to pay attention to both aspects of your health and ensure that nutrition is not only a complement to chiropractic care, but that it is working together to bring about the best outcomes possible.
Chiropractic and nutrition work synergistically. As members continue to be adjusted and receive nutritional education about the benefits of whole foods and whole food nutritional supplements, their understanding grows as to how both of these things come together and make a difference in the way they feel.
