Chiropractors advise their patients to include nutrition to their wellness package. When patients eat primarily fruits, vegetables and grain products in their diet, they are making a healthy decision. The over consumption of food high in fat, cholesterol, refined and processed sugars, salt and alcohol increases the probability of suffering from cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and some forms of cancer.
Chiropractic and Your Health
Chiropractic is oriented toward preventive health care. Nutrition, rest, posture, exercise and periodic spinal adjustments add up to a healthy lifestyle. Taking responsibility for your health helps reduce the need for costly medication, surgery and/or hospitalization. From its founding 100 years ago, chiropractic has been based on the premise that the human body has marvelous sustaining and recuperative powers. A healthy spine and nervous system assure that the body's recuperative powers can operate at their full potential. The benefits of spinal adjusting to remove misalignment or "subluxation" have been confirmed by recent scientific studies, although the practice itself can be traced back into ancient history.

Nutrition: A Key To Wellness
Nutrition is the science of food and other substances as well as the action, interaction and balance of different nutrients in the body. Your body's essential nutrients include carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water. Good nutrition helps you to digest, absorb, metabolize and excrete properly. It helps balance within the body's functions that lead to homeostatis. It may prevent illnesses such as diabetes, gingivitis, liver cirrhosis, cardiovascular disease and some cancers. On the other hand, bad nutrition from eating too much sugar, fat protein and dairy products compared to complex carbohydrates leads to having less energy. It imbalances the body's functions that may lead to disease such as diabetes, heart disease and cancers such as breast, ovarian and prostate.
