"Eating for health and well-being" is one of those phrases that sounds perfectly sensible but doesn't quite tell you what you need to know. You can get past the confusion and find your answers at East Bank Wellness. We do more than spinal adjustments. We provide holistic health and wellness care, including nutritional counseling, for Chicago and River North residents.
You can think of the human body as a kind of self-perpetuating factory, building and rebuilding its tissues while also regulating intricate combinations of biochemical processes. The fuel that makes all these things happen comes from the food and water you consume. The body breaks food down into the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats it needs to conduct its processes.
Unfortunately, much of today's fast foods and other highly-processed foods fail to deliver the proper balance of these nutrients. These products often provide too much fat, sodium, sugar, and other unwanted and too little nutrients your body needs. Insufficient amounts of key nutrients can have devastating effects on your health, from neurological damage caused by insufficient B vitamins to muscle wasting, hormonal imbalances, and poor immune function. Obesity is a notorious gateway to many serious health problems, including hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, and cancer.
Eating the wrong foods can even affect your musculoskeletal comfort. Excess weight can place your weight-bearing muscles and joints under severe stress, leading to chronic aches and pains. Some foods can also promote painful inflammation throughout the body.
Turn to East Bank Wellness for nutritional advice and support. Our chiropractors can evaluate your current health, diet, weight, and musculoskeletal function as the first step toward providing you with a personalized diet and nutrition plan. You may need a nutritional supplement to reverse a current health problem, for instance, or a weight loss program to help you feel and move better. A daily nutritional supplement can also help you make up for any unavoidable gaps in your diet. We can even suggest foods to combat chronic inflammation and other specific ailments the natural way.
