Nutritional Assessment at Primary Health Center Chiropractic 

Although nutritional counseling is not typically a part of a patient’s treatment plan at a chiropractic office, it can be beneficial for people suffering from chronic pain. Aside from being able to eat healthy, good nutrition can also help people lose weight. In Virginia, Primary Health Center Chiropractic offers a variety of nutritional assessments and advice. 


Importance of Good Nutrition 

The body is a biological machine that needs the right fuel to run properly. It may also need nutrients at different times throughout its life to promote overall health. For instance, babies who are breastfed for six months or a year are more likely to be healthy. 

Getting enough calcium can help lower the risk of osteoporosis in older people. It also helps the body’s natural hormone production and repairs damaged cellular structures. 


Diet vs Proper Nutrition 

Most diets focus on restricting calories to lose weight. However, they may not be able to provide the nutrients that people need to maintain a healthy body. By improving your diet, you can still lose weight and keep it off. In addition to being able to eat healthy, good nutrition can also help people lose weight. 

Getting the nutrients your body needs is very important for maintaining a healthy metabolism. Unfortunately, there are no right diets for everyone. However, good nutrition can help people lose weight and keep it off. 


Benefits of Proper Nutrition

Chiropractor and Good Nutrition
