Nutrition Q&A

Why is nutrition important?

Nutrition plays a significant role in promoting health and supporting healthy body function, as well as reducing the risk of disease. The food you eat provides your body with the energy, protein, vitamins, and minerals needed to make new cells, maintain organs, and help you make it through your weekly spin class.

Eating the right balance of foods and nutrients not only supports body function, but it also makes it easier for you to maintain a healthy weight. Nutrition also plays an essential role in healing injuries and is necessary for improved athletic performance. 

What can I expect during a nutrition consultation?

The team at East Falls Chiropractic has specialized training in nutrition and understands the power it holds over your health. During your nutrition consultation, the team reviews your usual diet, types of foods you like to eat, and any barriers to making healthier food choices. 

While the focus of the nutrition consultation is on your diet, the team may also conduct a physical exam to assess your general health and review your medical history, which may play a role in your nutrition recommendations. 

After the team gathers all the relevant information, they develop a nutrition program aimed at improving your health and reducing your risk of disease. Your plan may include a balanced mix of foods from all the food groups, as well as meal suggestions. 

Changing eating habits isn’t easy, and the team has you return to the office for follow-up sessions to monitor your adoption of the nutrition recommendations and help you manage any obstacles affecting the implementation of any or all of your nutrition program.

Will I need nutrition supplements?

The team at East Falls Chiropractic may include nutrition supplements as part of your nutrition plan. The type of supplement you need depends on your gender, age, and overall health. The team may suggest specific nutrients if deficiencies are suspected, as well as nutrients that support a particular health goal.

Proper nutrition serves as the foundation of good health. For a nutrition plan to support your goals, call East Falls Chiropractic or use the online booking tool to schedule an appointment today.
