Nutritional Counseling

Chiropractic care is founded upon the concept that the body is capable of self-healing given proper support and maintenance. At the most fundamental level, our bodies rely on nutrients to function at every level. If we do not consider nutrition as a way to give our body the fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals it needs, we risk developing physical and emotional issues. In this way, food is essential for our quality of life. It will either sustain our bodies or cause it to break down.

What is Nutritional Counseling?

Your body is designed to regulate and heal itself by extracting nutrients from the foods you consume. The demands of modern life often mean that we make unhealthy food choices simply because we do not have the time or energy to eat better. Yet, if we ate better, we may have more energy. This cycles often spins out of control for patients of all ages, and the problem is further complicated by the processing of food to extend shelf life and reduce costs. Obesity and chronic conditions may be linked to excessive intake of foods that contain more additives, dyes, chemical and preservatives than key nutrients.

Is Nutritional Counseling Only for Losing Weight?

Nutritional counseling is often associated with weight loss, but patients of all health levels can benefit from how to make appropriate choices for their bodies. The goal of nutritional counseling is to teach you about what your body needs to sustain and maintain itself. We also recommend methods that you can use to maximize nutrient intake while managing the demands of your lifestyle.

What are the Benefits of Nutritional Counseling?

Chiropractic care is only as good as the building blocks available to your body for self-healing. As you follow our nutritional counseling program, you will develop a new perspective on food. Rather than seeing your meals as ways to quiet a grumbling stomach or give yourself a quick boost of energy, you will see it as a way to prepare your body for the day’s schedule. We also teach you how to monitor your body for signs that a key nutrient is missing from your diet.

You certainly can have chiropractic care without nutritional counseling, but your results may take longer or be less than what can be achieved with this service. Patients who combine nutritional counseling with their chiropractic treatments enjoy:

  • Shortened recovery times
  • Fewer injuries
  • Increased energy
  • Improved emotional states
  • Greater sense of well-being

What Should I Expect from Nutritional Counseling?

We begin your nutritional counseling with an evaluation of your current symptoms, activity level and eating habits. We then provide education about key nutrients and how they work in your body. Based on your lifestyle, we develop recommendations for improving the foods you choose. Our nutritional counseling also includes follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and troubleshoot any issues that you experience.

How Much Does Nutritional Counseling Cost?

Nutritional counseling may be covered by your medical insurance. The treatment plan that is developed during your consultation provides a basis for the cost. We will determine what portion is covered by the insurance, and you are responsible for the remaining balance.
