Nutrition is a key part of wellness at any stage in life, but particularly for seniors. Geriatric nutritional counseling is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. At Flemming Chiropractic Wellness Center, we understand that it should be part of your holistic healthcare plan. Talk with us at 252-638-6062 to see if nutritional counseling is right for you.
What is Nutritional Counseling?
By looking through your diet and your dietary needs, nutritional counseling helps us determine if the body is getting overloaded with some things and not getting enough of others. There is a thorough assessment of what is eaten through the diet, and how your body is processing it. We look carefully and design a plan that is right for you as a person.
Why is Nutrition Counseling Important for Seniors?
The senior community may be particularly hard-hit by lack of nutrition. This malnutrition may impair muscle function, decrease bone mass, delay injury recovery, and even reduce cognitive function. Some of the nutrients that may be deficient include carbohydrates, proteins, and calcium. By taking a thorough look at their entire self, we can see exactly what is needed to bring our patients back into a healthy state, which may reduce the signs and symptoms of other health ailments.
Nutrition Counseling and Chiropractic Care
Getting nutrition counseling is both convenient and part of a thorough holistic healthcare regime at your chiropractic care center. Did you know that Vitamin D deficiencies can give you low back pain? We do. We understand the delicate balance between your diet and your health.
We not only look for deficiencies but also look at getting too much of a nutrient that may be causing illness or dysfunction. We seek to bring your body into alignment, not only spinal but whole-body nutritional health as well.
