Nutrition is a crucial element of our health. What we put into our bodies is directly related to our health status, and how our body is able to perform necessary processes. We look to our food as not only fuel for our bodies, but as sources for nutrients to keep our organs functioning, our bodies moving, and our brains operating.
Many of us do not have the knowledge to maintain proper nutrition habits, as we are unaware of what types of food help certain body parts or processes. Additionally, we are overwhelmed with foods that are filled with processed components, fillers, preservatives, and other harmful ingredients that contribute to poor health outcomes.
Proper nutritional counseling is a necessary health behavior to encourage health. If you are seeking chiropractic care to recover from an injury or even just to maintain health, nutrition becomes even more important.
