Nutrition Counseling at Burgdorf Specific Chiropractic

Mom making healthy lunchWith drive-thru dinner dashes and microwavable meals being the staples of many people’s diets, it’s no wonder so many aren’t getting the vital nutrients they need for good health. At Burgdorf Specific Chiropractic, we offer nutrition counseling as a crucial complement to chiropractic care.

In particular, we recommend nutritional supplementation as being a good thing for the body. It’s going to help nourish the body properly so that healing, in conjunction with the adjustments, can take place.

The Adjustment Comes First

First, we provide chiropractic care as the cornerstone of good health. We will want to make sure your body’s working the best it can.

People are not holding their adjustments sometimes as long as they could. For example, 30 or 40 years ago, a person could eat an apple and get all the nutrients they need from that apple. But today, because of pesticides, they’d need to eat three apples to get the same nutritional quality of out of one.

Most people know that it’s critical to stay sufficiently hydrated by drinking plenty of pure water each day. That’s because water helps to filter out the impurities of the body and aids in the healing and the regeneration of the body. It’s the same thing with nutrition. Your body needs the right building blocks to heal. And if you can’t heal the muscles, the tissues and nerves, the body is going to deteriorate.

Just like the apple example above, the foods that we get today are not as nutrient-dense as they should be. Processed food, in particular, is completely devoid of nutrients. We understand that it’s not always easy to get all the nutrients you need through diet alone. To avoid deficiency in nutrients such as vitamins A, B, C, D, and so on, we encourage patients to take a general nutritional supplement.

The supplement includes the basic building blocks that everybody needs in their bodies. Some people don’t get the nutrients through their foods or their digestive system isn’t absorbing them.

The first step in determining the supplements you need is having you complete a symptom checker form from Standard Process®. After you fill it out, we ask that you bring it back. We will input your responses into a computer and review them ourselves to see what areas of your body are weaker. Based on that, we would come up with a nutrition plan of what supplements may be the best for you.

In a month, we’ll take another survey to see how you’re responding to the supplements. And then we’ll do it again for another month and make any changes that are necessary.

What brand of supplement do you sell?

We chose to offer Standard Process whole food supplements as they’re all-natural. The company has their own farms and soil. The supplements are of the highest quality and are not made in a lab. The body can absorb the supplements much better than other supplements on the market today.
How are chiropractic and nutrition related?

If organs such as the heart, liver or spleen don’t have the nutrition to build on then all the nerve supply going out isn’t going to very beneficial.
Are there particular diets that you recommend?

“Over the past 50 years, I’ve seen so many diets come and go. A sensible and logical diet to follow is the Mediterranean,” said Dr. Dan. This diet includes the following:

  • Daily consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats
  • Weekly intake of fish, poultry, beans and eggs
  • Moderate portions of dairy products
  • Limited intake of quality red meat

Is there an additional fee for nutritional counseling or is it rolled into an office visit??

No, there is no fee to do the testing or to review. There is a charge, of course, for supplements.
