At Webb Chiropractic and Wellness, serving Anchorage, AK, we make it our main goal to help patients obtain and maintain optimum wellness. One of the many ways we help patients is through nutritional counseling. Keep reading to learn more.

Nutrition and Preventative Health Care

Today, mainstream medicine is highly focused on treating symptoms once they have developed. Although there certainly is a place for medical intervention in emergencies and severe cases, it is very important for individuals to take responsibility for their own health. All health starts with nutrition.

Your nutrition is literally what your cells will be built out of. How well these cells function is entirely determined by the quality and amount of nutrition you put in your body. When you give your body low-quality nutrition, you may be able to function at an optimum level. If you are dealing with an active health condition, poor nutrition can make these issues worse.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

In addition to the many types of chiropractic therapy available, our chiropractor also provides nutritional counseling. Through nutritional counseling, you can learn how to change your diet for optimum health and wellness. If you are dealing with specific health issues, such as diabetes, your nutrition will play a huge role in your future health. Our chiropractor will be able to evaluate these health concerns, develop a nutritional plan for you, and offer nutritional advice that could help prevent many health problems in the future.

What to Expect When You Visit

Some people are hesitant to visit a chiropractor because they do not know what to expect. A visit to the chiropractor’s office is very similar to a visit to your regular doctor. You will be examined and your medical history will be reviewed. If you are dealing with any pain issues, diagnostics will be done to determine if chiropractic treatments will be useful. Your current diet and nutritional goals will be discussed and a treatment plan and a nutritional plan will be developed for you.
