Nutritional Counseling from Our Nashua Chiropractor at Main Street Wellness & Chiropractic
“You are what you eat” is more than a saying in Nashua — it’s the truth. The human body requires the right mix and quantities of specific nutrients to perform its countless internal tasks, from metabolism to bone building. It’s no wonder, then, that malnutrition and unbalanced dietary habits can contribute to a host of ailments and chronic symptoms. But while many medical doctors view nutrition as a separate field, our Nashua chiropractor at Main Street Wellness & Chiropractic, Dr. Jerrilynn Sullivan, emphasizes it as an integral aspect of our ability to help you heal.
Nutrition as a Cornerstone of Health and Wellness
Your nutritional choices can have a dramatic impact on your health and wellness. In the past 30 to 40 years, chiropractors have seen the health of the average patient decline significantly. The rise of fast food, pre-packaged meals and other “convenience foods” have undoubtedly played a role in this. As we become busier and busier, we seek quicker easier solutions for meals and snacks; unfortunately, these products contain excessive amounts of fat, sugar, sodium, preservatives while failing to compensate with the necessary vitamins, minerals and fiber. The result is today’s epidemics of obesity, hypertension, diabetes and other chronic health problems.
Other ways in which nutrient intake affects health, both positively and negatively, are so subtle that many people aren’t even aware of them. You may not realize, for instance, that:
- The antioxidants in garlic can boost immunity
- A sweet tooth may be the result of a vitamin C deficiency
- A lack of omega-3s, zinc, or vitamin A may be the secret cause of acne
- Food allergies may cause rosacea
- Coffee may substantially reduce the risk of prostate cancer
- A selenium deficiency can cause cold sores
This illustrates that nutrition isn’t just matter of avoiding the unhealthiest products and watching portion sizes — it’s also making sure you’re getting all the right nutrients, in the right ratios, to sustain optimal physical function.
