3 Ways Chiropractic Care Supports Good Nutrition
By Virginia Laird
“You are what you eat.” Everyone has heard that saying before. This seems to be a true philosophy. The food you choose to eat plays a huge role in the overall health of your body. Did you know that what you eat can also increase your body’s ability to self heal? Nutrition is the foundation by which the body survives. When good nutrition and chiropractic care are used simultaneously your health can show great improvement.
Your Body’s Ability to Communicate
You have most likely studied the body and how it operates. Your brain sends messages with the various systems of the body -- ever heard of the central nervous system? -- via the spine. When the spine is restricted in function (or out of alignment) it makes it difficult to send messages quickly, correctly and uninterrupted. For these reasons it is vital to keep your spine in top functioning order. This can require the help of a chiropractor. No matter what the activity may be, your spine will shift in your lifetime. Only a chiropractor should be trusted to restore this function.
The Body May Need Support Absorbing Nutrients
One of the many tasks your body accomplishes on a daily basis is absorbing the nutrients provided by the food you choose to eat. Due to the fact that chiropractic care helps to restore function to the entire body, it also helps the body to communicate the need and ability of absorbing. The body can self repair when it can communicate unhampered. Think of all the various vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional components you need daily. The better ability to absorb that you can give your body, the healthier you will be over the long term.
The Nervous System Needs Fundamental Support
The nervous system in the one main system that sends the messages to make your body function. When it has interruptions it has difficulty sending solid messages. Keeping your nervous system operating at its very best will help your body do the same. If your body loses its ability to send messages, no amount of healthy eating can make you feel better. Keeping the nervous system in top condition can require the assistance of a chiropractor. Within a couple of visits to your chiropractor, your nervous system can be back functioning properly.
