Here’s To Healthy Eating!

Published January 28th, 2020 by Dr. Hoder

As January comes to a close, many people lose their focus and motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially when it comes to nutrition. Here’s what you should know about healthy eating and how it connects to chiropractic care.

The Chiropractic/Nutrition Connection

Many of us know we should eat healthy, but may not understand or think about the impact nutrition has on our overall health and wellness. The fact is, the foods we eat nourish our bodies and have a huge impact on our health. Here at Markson Chiropractic, when we provide chiropractic care, it goes beyond just how your back feels. We work hard to help you understand everything you can do to support a healthy body, and part of that is nutrition.

Your Diet

Let’s start by clearing something up – when we refer to your diet, we mean the foods you consume on a day-to-day basis, not the latest health fad. When it comes to nutrition, if you aren’t giving your body what it needs, it won’t perform at its best. You won’t feel too well, either. When your body doesn’t have proper nutrients, it may begin to breakdown. This can manifest itself as joint pain, inflammation, and many other health conditions.

Healthy Diet, Healthy Body

When you join us in our Plantation, FL chiropractic practice, we will teach you the best way to maximize the benefits of your chiropractic adjustments is to take care of your body in other ways, including practicing self-care, exercising, and practicing healthy eating habits.

You want to be sure you are getting the best nutrition you can, that you are getting enough ruse, and that you are consuming enough water along with your regular chiropractic adjustments if you want your body to perform at its best.

Food Suggestions

It isn’t always obvious what kinds of foods should be consumed to achieve optimal health. Fortunately, we happen to know a few things about nutrition and can help you understand the types of foods you should be eating, including:

  • Fresh Fruits: Your best bet is to go for whatever is in season. Cherries, grapes, berries, and pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, which keep your cells healthy.

  • Fresh Vegetables: These foods include things like spinach, kale, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, cabbage, and legumes. Vegetables are usually high in fiber, minerals, and vitamins which your body needs to work at its best.

  • Whole Grains: Whole grains are important to provide your body with amino acids and fiber that it needs. Pro tip: avoid highly processed grains, like white bread!
