Proper nutrition is essential to providing your body with the right balance of nutrients. Every body has individual nutrition needs, and if you are not feeding your body the right blend of vitamins, supplements and whole foods, you are depriving your body of the fuel it needs for basic metabolic functions. With our busy lives and demanding jobs, it is all too easy to rush from one drive-thru to another, gulping down sugary sodas along the way. Unhealthy eating habits combined with toxin overload from our environment can cause weight gain, chronic fatigue, exhaustion, and a decline in metabolic function.
Detoxification and Nutrition Essential to Long-term, Successful Weight Loss
Detoxification, a process by which we purify our bodies from within, is essential to wellness. A detox diet is also a healthy way to kick-start your weight loss program and maintain long-term, successful weight loss. Every day, our bodies are bombarded with toxins in the foods we eat and the air we breathe. Medications, pesticides, heavy metals, fumes, synthetic materials, cigarette smoke, and caffeine are all examples of toxins. Foods that are pumped full of chemicals and preservatives fill our bodies with toxins. Many organs in the body, including the liver, kidneys and digestive tract, are designed to naturally filter out these toxins, along with free radicals, ammonia and carbon dioxide, which are naturally produced waste products. But with our increasingly toxic lifestyles, our bodies are overload by toxins and begin to breakdown.
You may be wondering, "How do I know if I am suffering from toxin overload?" If you feel exhausted, irritable, unable to concentrate, struggle with low-grade illness, or suffer from allergies, then the answer is: "Yes!" Just think about what you currently eat or grew up eating. Do those foods contain non-organic fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry that was not free-range, or foods heavy in preservatives, additives, artificial sweeteners, or hydrogenated fats? Do you drink coffee, alcohol or tap water? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are suffering from toxin overload.
Toxin overload prevents our body from functioning right. A healthy liver is essential to losing weight. In addition to purging our body of toxins, the liver supports the body in burning fat for energy and helps regulate blood sugar. If the liver cannot function properly, sugars are turned into fat deposits, leading to weight gain, fatigue and exhaustion.
The Weight Loss for Quality Life Program is a three-week cleansing diet that purifies your body. Our detox diet is not just for weight loss - it is also an important component of long-term, successful weight management. During the three-week cleanse, you will experience increased energy and vitality, improved digestion, clearer thinking, increased bowel movements, clearer skin, and shinier hair.
Proper nutrition is also essential to healing and managing pain following an injury. Our chiropractor frequently recommends patients for injury-specific nutrition counseling. Our diets are designed specifically for each patient's unique injury needs, including vegan lifestyles. Many patients receiving chiropractic care find that injury-specific nutrition speeds healing time and maximizes the benefits of their chiropractic treatments.
