Nutrition Counseling at New Balance Chiropractic
Good health is a combination of nutrition, exercise and managing stress.
As the adage goes, “you are what you eat”. A poor diet can often exacerbate the symptoms of your current medical condition, resulting in more pain, discomfort and inflammation than you already have.
Some foods you know are bad for you, such as soda, candy, chips and fries. Others can sneak up on you: salads with the wrong dressings or toppings, vegetables soaked in butter, yogurt filled with processed sugar, etc.
Dr. Hill can walk through your daily diet to help you spot these hidden dangers and replace them with healthy alternatives such as fruits, lean meats, nuts, seeds and proper hydration. Krill Oil and Fish Oil supplements can provide healthy omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA that can reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Vitamin D supplements can help Seattle residents combat Seasonal Affective Disorder caused by the lack of sunshine year-round and longer night times during the winter. Proper Vitamin D levels will result in better mood, stronger bones and healthier hair.
Your nutrition counseling begins with a body composition analysis where your ratio of body fat to muscle is analyzed. If necessary, goals can be set to improve this ratio. If you eat well, move well and manage stress, a lifetime of preventable diseases and injuries can be avoided.
