Chiropractic involves treating the person as a whole by assisting the body to heal naturally. It has long been known that healthy, nutritious diets coupled with rest, exercise and spinal adjustments are an integral part of preventative health care.
In order to function to its optimum capacity, the body needs to absorb essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, minerals, proteins, and various vitamins. These ensure healthy digestion, metabolizing and excreting which, in turn, leads to homeostasis. This refers to the body’s ability to regulate its inner environment to ensure stability as it responds to changes in the external environment. Poor diets that include foods rich in sugars and processed foods can contribute to other health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.
