Wellness is the heart of our practice. Though they may seem worlds apart, nutrition and chiropractic go hand-in-hand. We believe that prevention is the best medicine, and that a healthy body is built from the inside out. Food contains fuel for the body and nutrients necessary for functioning at an optimal level. When the body is deficient in proper nutrition, the consequences can be serious.
When it comes to your health, everything you do and do not put in your mouth matters. The average American consumes a barrage of chemicals, pesticides, preservatives, and artificial ingredients every day. Many of these ingredients can be harmful and contribute to negative long-term health outcomes. Not to mention, the body’s systems and organs require important nutrients to work. A body that is unhealthy, overweight, or lacking vitamins and minerals may be more prone to injury and disease, and may also experience greater difficulty recovering during chiropractic treatment.
At Murphy Chiropractic and Wellness, we believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness. The needs of our patients vary on an individual basis, which is why both chiropractic and nutritional care plans must be personalized on a case by case basis. We offer complete nutritional counseling, which includes a micronutrient analysis. Our goal is to identify nutritional deficiencies and determine their cause. For some, it may be poor diet; for others, it may be an issue of poor absorption.
There are several vitamins and minerals that provide benefits to the body at a cellular level. They contribute to healthy sleep, help build strong bones, improve mental clarity, and even help reduce the risk of certain degenerative diseases, such as osteoporosis and arthritis. Examples include:
