Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Counseling at Deitch Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center

Most people have far more control over their own health and wellness than they could ever imagine. Proper nutrition is what makes our bodies' biochemical processes possible, just as improper nutrition can sabotage those processes. Getting the right balance of nutrients can affect everything from your weight and musculoskeletal comfort to your systemic wellness. We can help you make those right choices through our nutritional counseling services here at Deitch Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Princeton Junction.


Nutrition's Impact on the Body

Carbs, proteins, fats -- you're familiar with all these terms, but you may never have thought about how these macronutrients affect your life. Carbohydrates provide a ready source of quick energy for demanding bursts of activity, while proteins build tissue and fats perform such varied roles as nerve insulators and long-term "survival fuel." The trouble is that these macronutrients must be consumed in the proper balance and quantities to sustain health, and this is difficult in today's world. Fast foods, processed grocery-store menu items, and other popular options are better at supplying preservatives, sugar, and sodium than actual nutrition. A common side effect of relying on these food choices is obesity, muscle strain, premature arthritis, and a variety of systemic health problems.

Macronutrients aren't the only nutrients you need to consume in the correct balance. Your body also needs micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. Imbalances can contribute to everything from weak immune response to chronic inflammatory and neurological disorders. Modern convenience food choices are often lacking in essential micronutrients, encouraging you to damage your health without realizing it.

Dietary Advice, Weight Loss Programs, and Nutritional Supplement Recommendations

Deitch Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center takes nutrition seriously as a key factor in your overall well-being. If you're overweight, you may also be experiencing muscle or joint pain. A combination of weight loss, anti-inflammatory dietary changes, and chiropractic adjustment can help you overcome these symptoms. We will examine your current eating, working, and lifestyle habits to create a nutritional plan that supports the health improvements you need. A multivitamin nutritional supplement, or a combination of individual nutritional supplements, can help make up for any gaps in your micronutrient intake even after you've changed your relationship with food for the better.
