There is no better way to rejuvenate your health than by eating more nutritiously. In fact, even a few simple changes in your diet and lifestyle can have a positive impact on your health-and can also prevent a variety of health problems in the future.

The traditional coffee and doughnuts for breakfast; a hamburger for lunch-or no lunch; candy, cookies, and a soft drink for a snack; followed by a huge dinner with more protein than a person needs-are unhealthy dietary choices. As a result, younger people are starting to suffer from heart disease-not only because of poor diet, but also because of an epidemic of inactivity.

What can you do? Lifestyle changes, including dietary changes can have a huge impact on your health: We offer computerized analysis of your health. Recommendations are made using Standard Process whole food supplements. We do not recommend chemical vitamins or vitamin megadoses of synthetic or "natural" vitamins. We use Whole food concentrates.

Lifestyle Changes
  • Exercise at least 20 to 30 minutes three or four days a week.
  • Eat out more sparingly. Food preparation methods in restaurants often involve high amounts-and the wrong types-of fat and sugar.
  • Brown-bag your lunch to control your fat and sugar content while adding nutritious fruits, vegetables, and grains.
  • Limit your intake of alcohol and quit smoking. Drinking alcohol excessively and/or smoking hinder your body's ability to absorb nutrients from your food.
Supplements

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, dietary supplements are not substitutes for foods, nor can a person sustain good health by just taking vitamin and mineral supplements. When taken properly, however, supplements can play an important role in achieving maximum health. If you are considering nutritional supplements, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Remember to consume dark green vegetables, oils, nuts, and seeds, which are sources of magnesium, fatty acids, and many other vitamins and minerals.
  • Don't "self-prescribe." Consult a health care practitioner, such as a doctor of chiropractic, to determine what supplements are best for you. If you have symptoms such as headaches, chronic fatigue, or cardiac problems, seek professional advice from a health care provider who specializes in nutrition.

Diagnosis and treatment of all health conditions should only be performed by your doctor of chiropractic or other licensed health care professional.
