Lifestyle & Nutritional Advice

MCR Chiropractic is available for Lifestyle and nutrition guidance

Women with nutritious food in kitchen

In this day and age, specialization seems to be the norm. However, MCR Chiropractic believes that a broader approach to health actually produces better results.

Our doctors tends toward an integrated approach to physical wellness, with "whole body" treatment that encourages lifestyle and nutritional changes, meditation, and relaxation, physical and mental exercise, and positive reinforcement. Our doctorsin addition to non-invasive, drug-free treatment to promote necessary healing from accidents or injury, small changes in lifestyle and diet can be life-changing.

A Coordinated Approach to Wellness

Our doctors knows that life is busy and stressful. While we cannot adequately stress the importance of regular exercise and proper diet, we understand that major change is difficult. But, in addition to helping our patients with posture and corrective exercises to promote healing, we emphasize diet, regular exercise, sleep, and a positive mindset. 

Our culture has become increasingly sedentary. Along with job stress, modern habits can take a toll on both physical and mental health. We see the results. A growing number of younger people are now overweight or obese. The number of people with diabetes and heart problems has grown steadily in the past couple of decades. As a society, we now consume more pills than ever before. We are, in some ways, less fit than previous generations. 

Finding Better Ways to Fitness and Health

However, that can all change. Our doctors recommends a regular program of exercise for 20 to 30 minutes at least three or four times a week. A gym membership isn't necessary. A brisk walk or Modern dance moves are great ways to reap the benefits! Play a game of pickup basketball, or touch football, go canoeing with the family or take up yoga to reap the dual benefits or stretching and meditation. 

Eat simple meals that are heavy on fruit, vegetables, and fiber; include whole grains, nuts, and legumes. Lessen your dependence on coffee and sweets. Limit alcohol and soda consumption. If you still smoke, quit. Take brown bag lunches to work or school, and skip the drive-through lanes -- your budget will stretch further as well. Cook at home.

Let Your Chiropractor Guide You

Visit local farmers markets, or plan a "kitchen garden" to experience true fresh flavors and the great taste of just-picked tomatoes or fruits. Spend a few weekend hours cooking meals to freeze if your weekday schedules are jammed.

For additional ideas, simply schedule a consultation with our doctors who is always available to help you reclaim your vitality and set you on the path to lasting wellness.
