How many times have you heard the phrase you are what you eat?

Nutrition is a significant element when it comes to your overall health. No matter what other medical treatments you might be receiving, what you eat has a major impact on their long-term success. This is particularly true for those receiving chiropractic care.

Your diet can significantly impact both your muscular and skeletal system. Choosing natural foods and vitamins or supplements can directly impact the outcome of your chiropractic care. Whether it is a strain, a separation, a tear or any other type of muscle injury, chiropractic care and proper nutrition can help patients reduce the potential for these injuries to do significant damage. 

Nutrition and chiropractic care are interwoven to the point where even the slightest nutritional mishap can take away from all the good work you have done with your chiropractor.

How Lifestyles Affect Your Body's Nutritional Intake

Despite a wide variety of foods, people today generally eat more but actually get fewer nutrients. Many common aspects of daily life can deplete the body of the nutrients it needs to function properly:

  • Drinking—alcohol, coffee/sodas (caffeine)
  • Smoking—nicotine
  • Medications—statin drugs, corticosteroids, diuretics
  • Eating—junk food, refined carbohydrates
  • Stress—work, family
  • State of Health—illness, injury, intestinal issues, pregnancy

These things can rob you of nutrients by:

  • Increasing your need for certain nutrients
  • Causing accelerated nutrient loss
  • Impairing the absorption of nutrients from food
