“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, we offer nutrition counseling services for the Glastonbury and surrounding communities. 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, which we will determine in a one-on-one consultation.

Your First Visit

There is no need to be intimidated by meeting with a nutrition counselor! Our staff is friendly, compassionate and focused on helping you reach your goals. Once you start the journey to improved health and wellness, your past choices stay behind! Our staff really listens to your concerns and aspirations, without judgment. 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.

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 schedule an appointment, contact us today!

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."

"Dr DeFrancesco is an amazing Chiropractor. I have been seeing him for my entire life, and my parents used to drive all the way from Albany NY just to make sure I was able to be seen by Dr D. His genuine desire to make sure you maximize your health is inspiring, and the fact that he clearly practices what he preaches really motivates you. His enthusiasm is infectious and you can't help but leave his office smiling. I would definitely recommend Dr DeFrancesco to everyone."

"There is no better place than Chiropractic Health Center, from the moment you step into the office, you are welcomed with a smile and they even manage to remember every patients name. They put a lot of emphasis on your care, you start feeling better with every visit. I would recommend this practice over any other possible treatment/office in the state."

"I started my chiropractic journey a few weeks before having my 3rd baby. They were amazing, patient and gentle during the pregnancy. They weren't pushy when I took my time, post pregnancy, to come back. They were amazing with my schedule and did everything to work with me. I felt so comfortable with them that I brought my new born baby and my 3 year old in to get adjusted!"

"They are not only extremely professional and helpful but genuinely care about your well being! In addition, the group is very supportive of the community. I love that they partnered with We Are the Children to donate thousands of dollars worth of toys.
