“You are what you eat!” A phrase you have likely heard so many times, it has lost its impact. Yet the truth remains: What you put into your body determines what you get out of it.
In today’s fast-paced society, nutrition is often sacrificed for convenience. Ask yourself: If you always feel run-down and drained, is your life more convenient? Before your next meal, think about the lasting effect of your food choices on your long-term health.
About Nutrition Counseling
At The Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury, our doctors can offer nutrition counseling services as part of your health and wellness journey. We often work with people who want to eat better, but don’t know how to make healthy choices. The first step is knowing exactly what your body needs to stay fueled.
Your First Visit
Once you start the journey to improved living, your past choices stay behind! As you work toward your wellness goals, we will be there to support you every step of the way.
The second step in our nutrition counseling process is education and empowerment to make healthy choices in your day-to-day life. Unfortunately, you may not realize that some of the so-called “healthy” foods you eat can have low nutritional value:
- A cup of yogurt is often loaded with sugar.
- A “whole grain” loaf of bread can be packed with indigestible refined flours.
- Organic “multi-grain” cereals may list sugar as the second ingredient.
In addition to healthy foods, all-natural vitamin and mineral supplements also work wonders to restore your body. Supplements provide targeted, powerful nutrition and support where your body needs it most. We offer a full line of pharmaceutical-grade supplements that are completely natural, with no artificial ingredients.
Who Can Benefit
The short answer is everyone! When nutrition is at the core of our everyday lives, we have more energy, maintain heart health and reduce our disease risk. Healthy eating can have a positive impact on weight management, which can be a difficult feat for many people. Maintaining a healthy weight is also good for your spine, which affects the rest of the body’s vital systems.
When you set a goal, having someone to hold you accountable can be beneficial for anyone, in all aspects of life. Even the healthiest person needs motivation to make good choices! Our nutrition counseling services do not end once your goals are met.
We work with patients to develop healthy habits that last a lifetime. To learn more, contact us today!
