Fitness, Nutrition and Chiropractic

Did you know over 80% of the chronic diseases currently affecting the population are completely preventable with a healthy lifestyle?

For anyone trying to achieve a healthy lifestyle three major areas must be addressed: fitness, nutrition, and chiropractic. Having a daily exercise routine is an important factor in achieving your EnVitality, or ultimate health. Did you know that regular exercise can lower your risk for various diseases and conditions like diabetes, cancer, heart disease, depression, etc. Research also shows that any amount of exercise, at any age is beneficial. Regular exercise creates a fit and healthier you, and a longer lifespan. The list of benefits is impressive and having a fitness routine is one important piece of the healthy lifestyle triad. 

The next import piece of the triad is nutrition. As stated by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, "Let food be thy medicine & let thy medicine be food." Too often as Americans we simply want to pop a pill for our high blood pressure or other ailments without giving our bodies the chance to correct the issue through proper diet. The statement "you are what you eat" holds very true within our bodies, and when you put unhealthy foods in you create an unhealthy body made of unhealthy cells. This is why I offer one-on-one nutritional counseling and coaching. Many people need guidance and personalized support in this area. You can eat healthy foods, even if you are always on the run, but it takes the right preparation and knowledge.

The last piece of the triad is chiropractic. Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free, and holistic healthcare that focuses on the entire body. Chiropractic is based on the science that your nervous system controls and coordinates every function in your body from cells, to muscles, to tissues, and organs. Your nervous system acts as a computer and is made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves that go to every part of your body. Chemical (food, drugs, etc), emotional (stress) and physical stressors (sleep, work, school, fitness) are put on your body every day and can affect it negatively. When the body can no longer handle and recover from these stressors by itself, a misalignment will occur in the spine. That misalignment is a small thing when it first happens, but if left uncorrected it cuts off the life energy from the brain to the body, leaving that part of the body working at less than 100%. If this process continues, the entire body works at less than its full potential which will begin to create symptoms like pain, sickness, muscle spasms, headaches, etc. With a simple, gentle chiropractic adjustment, the energy is released, and healing can now take place. When the nervous system works better, all systems in the body work better which allows each person to experience their full potential.

When chiropractic is added into people’s lifestyles of fitness and healthy eating, many experience a new level of health and wellness because their body was not working at 100%. Not only do we need to put good things into our bodies like healthy foods and exercise, but we also need to spend time on our health from the inside out which is what chiropractic adjustments provide. Chiropractic care benefits each person independently, but its benefits are maximized when combined with fitness and nutrition.
