Future Doc: Nutrition & Food Choices

Nutrition: a necessary component of chiropractic.  While March is dedicated to National Nutrition Month, at Greenbrier Chiropractic Center, we know that maintaining proper nutrition is something to practice year-round.  Having proper knowledge is essential in maintaining proper nutrition habits. Nutritional deficiencies are extremely common, as they are the rule, not the exception.

Generally speaking, our bodies are different! Our bodies (emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually) are not the same as they were thirty or even fifty years ago. The thirty-year-old body that is seeking help in 2020 is different than the thirty-year-old body in 1990, primarily due to a diminishing nutritional status from generation to the subsequent generation, compounded by the accumulative effects of a toxic environment.  Our food has become “food-like products,” which weakens the body, making it even more susceptible to an increasingly toxic environment.

Upon completion of training in Advanced Clinical Nutrition in 2010, Dr. Timothy Pence had incorporated the practice of Nutritional Response Testing with chiropractic care.  Nutritional Response Testing (NRT) is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health.  When these are corrected through safe, natural nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimal health.

Seemingly endless benefits of proper nutrition are particularly important for chiropractic care.  While one individual may need assistance in improving bone health, another individual may require a decrease in inflammation.  Every diet is different and while we all need proper nutrition, Dr. Pence is able to individualize specific nutrition plans for each patient depending on the difference in needs.

Throughout the month of March and the remainder of 2020, remember the importance of making informed food choices as well as the development of appropriate eating and physical habits, while continuing chiropractic care.  Dr. Pence at Greenbrier Chiropractic Center is prepared to help improve your overall health.  Give us a call at (304) 645-6080 to schedule your appointment.
