Nutritional Counseling at Spine Pain Center
Your body needs consistent nourishment to function properly. While most of us follow healthy meal plans when trying to lose weight and get fit, following a nutrition plan tailored to your body's unique needs is a great investment in your overall health. At Spine Pain Center, with locations in Irmo-Columbia, SC, North Charleston, SC, Mount Pleasant, SC, Surfside Beach, SC, Summerville, SC, and North Myrtle Beach, SC, we offer nutritional counseling to ensure you are treating your body with the nourishment it deserves.
Nutrition vs. Dieting
A common misconception is that good nutrition means dieting. Typically, diets are a temporary weight-loss solution, whereas good nutrition is a commitment to lifelong health. Nutrition is about eating foods that meet your body's mineral and vitamin needs.
Nutrients fuel the systems in your body. That means, if you don't give it the fuel it needs, those systems are thrown off balance. When this happens, you are likely to struggle to recover from illnesses and injuries and experience worsening aches and pains.
Proper nutrition isn't just about maintaining a healthy weight. You need to understand the foods your body needs to keep its systems in balance. Developing a comprehensive nutrition plan is key; our clinic will help you understand which nutrients you need to be healthy. If you are trying to lose weight, our weight loss chiropractor will provide you with weight loss assistance, as well as focus on your overall, long-term health. Remember, good nutrition gives your body the tools it needs for total body wellness.
Nutritional Testing and Consulting
Part of nutritional counseling is evaluating your nutritional requirements. Your body's needs will change throughout your life, depending on your gender, age, hormones, lifestyle, and more. We will help you make adjustments to accommodate your stage of life. For example, if you are a woman of childbearing age, your needs will be different from a male teenager.
Nutritional supplements are a great way to enhance your vitamin intake. Sometimes we don't get all the nourishment we need from our food, but there are other ways to ensure we are hitting our daily goals. We'll work together to determine which ones you need for your activity level and food goals. Health is a journey; establishing strong, healthy habits will improve your quality of life, promote better body functioning, protect you against certain illnesses, and help you feel the best version of yourself.
