Frankfort Nutritionist Chiropractor Helps Patients Achieve Wellness
At Advanced Chiropractic Wellness in Frankfort, we love helping our patients make huge life improvements through nutrition. Chiropractor Dr. Scott Stratton has helped many patients achieve pain relief and total wellness by using Nutritional Response Testing to analyze a person’s sensitivities to certain foods, and then helping them make lifestyle changes through personalized dietary recommendations.
Patients whose back pain, neck pain, headaches, and migraines did not respond to traditional chiropractic treatments have often responded wonderfully after eliminating certain aggravating foods from their diet. For our neighbors here, and in Tinley Park and Mokena, who struggle with digestive health issues, irritable bowel, gluten intolerances, or any other painful conditions that are not responding to other forms of care, we urge them to look into nutrition. As Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, and let thy medicine be food.”
Nutrition is a Critical Aspect of Chiropractic Care in Frankfort
Every day, when we make choices about food, we are actually choosing how healthy we want to be. As part of a holistic health outlook, we urge everyone who visits our Frankfort nutrition chiropractor for help to improve their nutrition so they can achieve overall wellness. Sometimes, even when we think we are eating healthy, undiagnosed food intolerances can still be making us sick. So our Nutritional Response Testing (NRT) program helps people discover specific ways in which they can change their diet to improve health.
NRT works upon principals based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which state that a person’s energy flows through meridians throughout the body. Imbalances in the flow of energy through these meridians can be caused by physical or emotional disturbances in a person’s life, and many of these imbalances stem from a poor diet, which results in poor health. In our Frankfort chiropractic clinic, we test the patient’s neurological reflexes at the acupuncture points in order to uncover imbalances and their causes. After thorough analysis, we can make dietary recommendations to restore optimal health.
For instance, NRT helps determine whether an individual’s body is oversensitive to certain foods. Our testing frequently discovers intolerances to things like wheat, refined sugar (which is not healthy for anyone), potatoes, meats, and artificial colors, flavorings, and preservatives. These intolerances manifest themselves in a myriad of ways throughout the body. We have helped people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, ADHD, depression, allergies, asthma, men’s health issues, women’s health issues, and a very long list of other physical and emotional ailments to find stunning relief by eliminating offending foods and focusing on whole foods instead.
Chiropractor Dr. Stratton urges everyone to stay properly hydrated, and eliminate sugar and artificial foods from their diets, opting instead for a whole, organic diet heavy on fruits and vegetables. NRT can help patients further understand if there are any other specific foods they should avoid to reach pain relief and optimum health.
