Unity Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Beaverton, OR, treats people with issues related to the body's structural system. To make a complete circle of a healthy body, nutrition and wellness have to be combined. Chiropractic addresses the biomechanical component of nerves and muscles but rarely solves the entire problem. Biochemical workings in the internal organs play an equal part in staying balanced and healthy. We have taken these two necessary components and formed a much-needed nutritional counseling program to address many of those repeated problems that never seem to go away for good.
Weight Loss and Wellness
Weight gain is responsible for many diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, and spinal problems. Our weight loss program through nutritional counseling does more than make suggestions to a diet. Learning the reasons why bodies hold onto unwanted weight is crucial in starting the right treatment plan. Visits to the chiropractor for pain, headaches and other physical ailments may bring temporary relief, but getting to the core of the problem can make you feel more energetic, balance blood sugar levels and finally see those stubborn pounds begin to fall off.
Inflammation and your Nutritional Supplement
Our nutritional counseling program will point out reasons why inflammation occurs and why our nutritional supplement is not working to the best of its ability. Certain foods that cause inflammation, why some parts of your body are affected more than others, and how an individualized diet can correct the nutritional imbalance, are a few of the suggestions that we will share with you. To reduce inflammation, we may recommend fish oil supplements that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that were found to increase certain anti-inflammatory molecules in the blood. Supplements are beneficial only when they treat the right deficiency. Even then, the amount provided in the dosage may not be adequate.
