Nutrition & Supplements – Primary Health Center Chiropractic 

Although chiropractic is usually associated with physical adjustments, it’s also important to note that it can additionally provide nutritional support. 

At Primary Health Center Chiropractic, we believe that treating the whole person is important, and that includes eating a healthy diet and taking advantage of other techniques such as massage therapy and joint manipulation. This allows us to provide a more holistic approach to our patients. 


Vitamins and Supplements 

Unfortunately, many of us are not able to meet all of our nutritional requirements. At Primary Health Center, our doctors can help bridge this gap by providing a variety of supplements and vitamins as part of our patient’s comprehensive program. This plan will be customized to meet your individual needs. 

After you have been to the chiropractor to get your body adjusted, you might be surprised to learn that you can also receive nutritional care from the practitioner. This is because chiropractic care removes the harmful and dysfunctional structures from your body. 

A study conducted by the National Institute of Health revealed that over 80% of New York State’s chiropractic practitioners use nutritional counseling. This is a huge endorsement of the complementary care provided by chiropractic. 


Holistic Approach 

Instead of focusing on a disease’s symptoms, we at Primary Health Center Chiropractic focus on the whole body. This concept of holistic medicine allows the practitioner to provide the best possible care for the whole person. In addition to being able to treat the symptoms of a disease, chiropractic also helps the body maintain its health by incorporating nutritional counseling and other holistic methods. 


Chiropractic Care For Autoimmune and Inflammatory Disease 

Many people with inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, such as diabetes, arthritis, and thyroid disease, are referred to chiropractic for their care. According to a study conducted by D.R. Seaman, a diet that is high in fat and sugar can lead to chronic inflammation. He claims that dietary changes can help decrease inflammation levels and improve the quality of life for those suffering from these conditions. 

A study conducted by the Colorado National Board of Examiners for Chiropractic also stated that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and healthy fats can help decrease the inflammation levels in the body. These nutrients can help relieve the symptoms of these conditions. 


Knowing Nutrition Helps Adjust Subluxations and Identify It 

Lower vitamin D levels can also lead to lower back pain. This is why many people who are enrolled in chiropractic school are required to study nutrition. This discipline allows the practitioners to identify the various factors that affect the body’s health. They also learn how B vitamins should be used to prevent gallstones and liver dysfunction. 

According to Laura Sheehan, a San Francisco-based chiropractor, the body can easily absorb nutrients found in supplements and vitamins. Unlike medical practitioners, who are not required to study nutrition, chiropractic practitioners rely on plant-based supplements.
