Holistic Health for Orlando Florida: Nutritional Counseling
What does nutritional counseling have to do with chiropractic care? At Pavlik Center for Health and Wellness, we've found that it can be an effective complement to chiropractic adjustment, massage, physical therapy, and the other services we provide. Our dedication to holistic health means that we treat the whole body and proper nutrition, or the lack thereof, is very much a whole-body affair.
Nutritional Counseling and Holistic Health Care
Nutritional imbalances are a primary cause of the obesity epidemic raging throughout much of the world today. Eating the wrong foods, or the wrong quantities of foods, is an easy trap to fall into when there are plenty of cheap choices and insufficient understanding of what the body needs (and what it needs to avoid). Busy individuals may rely on fast food, junk food, and easy-to-prepare processed products to help them maintain their whirlwind schedule.
Unfortunately, this strategy backfires when the foods they're eating compromise their health, wellness and productivity, with results such as:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels
- Food allergies
- Irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders
- Elevated cancer risk
- Joint pain and joint damage from excess weight bearing
The more highly-processed foods you eat, the more likely you are to gain weight and the more difficult it becomes to lose those extra pounds. That's because the toxins, preservatives and other chemicals are stored in the fat cells, effectively flat-lining the body's metabolism. As you get larger, you may also get sicker as the extra weight and sluggish metabolism interfere with physical processes.
Nutritional Counseling at Our Orlando Health and Wellness Center
Our Orlando health and wellness center is dedicated to providing holistic health strategies, not just spinal adjustment. This "whole body" approach includes multiple diagnostic and treatment modalities to address both the underlying cause of your distress and its effects throughout your body. Nutritional counseling plays a key role in restoring health to many of our patients. Our chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Pavlik, starts by evaluating your weight, dietary habits (or changes), stress levels, medical history and current symptoms. Based on those findings, we can create a personalized nutrition plan suited to your specific challenges. This plan may include:
- A detailed discussion of your weight loss or wellness goals
- A "detox diet" phase that enables built-up toxins to exit your fat cells, thus jump-starting your metabolism
- Nutritional supplementation to ensure that you're getting healthy amounts of daily vitamins and minerals
- A series of regular nutritional counseling check-ins and appointments to monitor your progress
- On-going dietary advice, adjustments and encouragement to help you maintain your new lifestyle
