Nutritional Counseling in Alexandria VA

person cutting bell peppers on a chopping boardThe old adage, “You are what you eat” is still true! Nutrition is the foundation of good health—yet many people don’t know how to properly fuel their bodies. What we put into our bodies has a direct effect on our health and how our body functions.

When we lack the proper nutrients, there can be issues keeping our bodies moving, our organs functioning, and our brains operating. Using food as a natural medicine helps restore balance and replenish deficiencies.

Good Food, Great Health

Nature provides all the elements our bodies need to heal, thrive and grow. Vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, carbs, water, oxygen, water and energy are all available in abundance. With the right fuel, our bodies can function as designed.

Everyone’s body chemistry is unique to them; what works for one won’t necessarily work for you. That’s why having a conversation with a nutritional counselor should be your first step. Establishing where you are now, and where you need to be, are crucial before beginning any plan.

Nutrition and chiropractic go hand in hand. The nervous system influences every part of the body, and digestion is no exception. It tells your body what to do with the fuel you put in. If your nervous system is misaligned or blocked, the necessary nutrients won’t be properly broken down or fully used.

Chiropractic adjustments can correct the misalignment, and ensure that messages from your brain and body are transmitted without disruption.

Good nutrition is an important adjunct to chiropractic care. Incorporating nutritional information, such as anti-inflammatory diets and specific supplements into our chiropractic treatments can help reduce inflammation and pain, and improve muscle function.

Some conditions nutritional counseling can help with include

  • IBS—Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Indigestion
  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • Bloating

  • Headaches
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Anxiety
  • And more
