Why healthy eating matters to chiropractors

Healthy eating.  Is it as hard to do as it sounds?  We recently attended the EAT! Healthy event as part of Emsworth’s British Food Fortnight.  The day featured a range of different exhibitors from the local area who all came together to promote the role of healthy eating and how this can have a positive change to our lifestyles.  It was a fascinating day and even us exhibitors got to sample some lovely healthy treats (sweet potato chocolate brownies, anyone?!)

produced some fantastic resources for visitors which you can download here, providing information on inflammatory foods, osteoporosis and vitamin D, magnesium and obesity.

Chiropractic is an holistic healthcare profession meaning we look at the person as a whole, including psychological, social, emotional, and physical elements that can impact on pain, and healthy eating can have a huge impact on pain and recovery from injuries.  We ensure that we identify and address any impact the diet may be having on our patients complaint, as we know there is no better way to rejuvenate your health than by eating more nutritiously. In fact, even a few simple changes in your diet and lifestyle can have a positive impact on your health-and can also prevent a variety of health problems in the future.

Nutritional Therapy & Chiropractic

We’re delighted to welcome the first of our guest blog writers.  Nicola Russell is a registered Nutritional Therapist based in Midhurst, who works closely with her clients to address how optimum nutrition can be the key to a healthy lifestyle.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease

Thomas Edison, US Inventor 1847-1931

“I became interested in Chiropractic care after suffering from a bad back in my early 20’s following a fall from a horse when I was younger.  However, I have continued seeing chiropractors from that pred berries acorn health food fruitoint onwards as I came to understand that keeping my spine, joints and muscles flexible and moving freely ensures my body stays pain-free and able to cope with what I ask of it during day-to-day life.  Chiropractic care is not just for bad backs!

Nutritional Therapy looks at addressing nutritional imbalances which also effects chemical reactions and bodily functions, and works with clients on many levels to support the body towards healing itself.  Co-management of certain clients therefore makes sense and I think Chiropractic care and Nutritional Therapy naturally go hand in hand.

For those already suffering from musculoskeletal complaints, dietary modification could help with pain management.  For example, insulin resistance (a precursor to diabetes) is implicated in the pathophysiology of Metabolic Syndrome (a collection of risk factors that can lead to diabetes, strokeacorn health lettuce green and heart diseases) which may be linked to musculoskeletal pain (Seaman & Palombo, 2014).  An elevated body mass index could also indicate a pro-inflammatory boy chemistry and be seen as a potential initiator/promoter of pain too (Seaman, 2013) and it therefore may be incumbent upon chiropractors to identify those at risk and refer them on.   Insulin resistance, weight gain and other conditions can be reversed with the help of a Nutritional Therapist though the use of multiple strategies such as dietary and lifestyle modifications.

Chiropractors also work to encourage dietary and lifestyle modifications as they have recognised the importance of looking at the whole person in order to obtain optimum health.  I believe that proper nutrition, chiropractic care and regular exercise are the keys to good health!
