Optimum Nutrition for Brain Health, Energy, and Total Health
Our caring and compassionate Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine,are interested in the “whole person” of their patients. From the moment you enter our office, you will note the personal concern for you as a total person – as an individual.
We respond first to your complaints and then focus on how to alleviate the presenting pain or discomforts. However, we want to help identify the cause. Treating the symptoms while isolating and addressing the cause, whether it be from an accident, illness, poor eating or exercise habits or other reasons, becomes a part of our total health care plan.
Optimum Nutrition for Mental Health and Well Being
Optimum Nutrition is only one of the offerings through Siimpler Chiropractic. Optimum Nutrition, however, is now recognized as a major player in the whole world of optimal health, energy, productivity, mental health and well being. Being aware of the direct correlation between healthy food intake and an energy filled lifestyle can enhance the entirety of one’s life as well as lifestyle. We set the example of the resulting effects of this synergy.
The Optimum Nutrition program that has been developed presents itself in simplified and easily applied ways that is adaptable to each patient. We teach how to shop for so called health foods and to establish eating habits that satisfy the physical hunger needs while learning to eradicate harmful foods from the diet.
The desire to feel more energetic and more positive, plus the urgency to feel less bloated and less depressed, can be activated by following the Optimum Nutrition program. Under our guidance, and perhaps coupled with other offerings at Siimpler Chiropractic, such as chiropractic adjustments and a wide variety of treatments found in this modern and relaxed setting, great strides in the improvement you desire will be made. Don’t be satisfied with a less than fulfilling health status until you have visited with our doctors and have received our medical care for you as a whole person.
Basic Nutrition Information
Basic nutrition information for increasing energy and sense of well being and a more energetic lifestyle includes the following suggestions
Eat as much organic foods as possible
Do not eat anything having more than 5 ingredients
Skip processed foods – such as Breads, GMO foods and BPAs
Increase consumption of protein, fruits and vegetables
Some hints for shopping for healthy food may include:
Buy Organic: As you transition to an all organic diet, recognizing the increase in cost, you may want to start with fresh produce with thin skins.
Choose Whole Wheat Breads: When purchasing breads, look for “whole grains” or “100% whole wheat flour” to be the first ingredient on the list and the only type flour.
Choose Wild Caught vs. Farm Raised fish. Farm raised fish are fed hormones which help the fish “grow” larger. These hormones can be toxic.
Avoid MSG: This additive is found in many “ready-made” items such as mixes, sauces and other condiments. An easier way may be to make your own dressings, etc. with fresh ingredients in your own kitchen.
Reduce so-called liquid calories: Water is always the best option. Avoid juices and sodas. These contain high sugar and calorie contents as well as artificial colors and flavors in most.
Optimal Health Nutrition for Health and Fitness
Optimal health nutrition produces improved total body health.
Whatever our usual diet is, we must all acknowledge that we are aware of the facts that prove increased total body health and fitness can be achieved and maintained through exercise, nutrition, controlling high blood pressure, diabetes, normal weight, etc. The media blasts that these good health practices will increase our heart health. At the same time, the media entices us by flooding the waves with all the wrong things to eat. It is a matter of choice.
The ways that we can maintain good heart health also are crucial to brain health. The increased emphasis on deterring brain decline as well as maintaining heart health should trigger a renewed effort to increase our healthy living choices. Let us help you with our Optimum Nutrition program.
