What to Eat & Why

Nutrition Workshop Recap

During our nutrition workshop we talked about how the health of the people of the United States has been drastically decreasing and how our nutrition is hugely to blame. We have an entire industry selling medication for preventable diseases… What if we could reverse this trend?

The fundamental problems with our nutrition is that 

  • we over eat, 

  • we're malnourished, and 

  • we're overburdened with toxicity and unwanted chemicals that take energy to digest and eliminate from our bodies. 

Good nutrition requires a healthy gut system and microbiome in our bodies, which was the focus of the lecture. We talked about the kinds of behaviors and foods that cause a leaky and dysfunctional gut which predisposes us to becoming allergic to our foods and our environment. This in turn has caused a drastic rate of increase of auto immunity in our communities. Our microbiome, the probiotics and prebiotics, are what keep our guts healthy and we should be striving to include these in our diet. 

We also touched on macro and micro nutrients, how they add up to give us what we need for proper metabolism, and how they can be neglected and cause weight gain and malnourishment.

Here in the practice we focus on Neuro-Strucural Correction which looks at restoring the connection between the brain and the body (like the digestive system)

Here in the practice we focus on Neuro-Strucural Correction which looks at restoring the connection between the brain and the body (like the digestive system). We shared a study about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) being caused by improper nerve signals to the gut. This is why so many of our patients report having better digestion when they are under regular care. 

In the end we reiterated that nutrition needs to focus on healing the gut, eating whole nutritious foods, and how supplementation can help to round out our nutrition so that we make sure we're getting everything we need to live a healthy life free of disease.

As summer winds down and the changing of seasons begins, it is time to look ahead to the holiday season. To be successful in your goals, it’s important to start preparing for the upcoming months before the holiday festivities are underway.

To get you started on your goals now, let's bust a common nutritional myth: “Fasting makes you burn muscle…” Wrong! At least for most of us. Only once you have less than 4% body fat, then your body will start to break down muscle. But before that, your body accesses fat for energy. Burning muscle first would be like storing firewood (fat) to burn for the winter, and as soon as you need energy you throw your sofa in the fire. That makes no sense physiologically if you have enough fat (firewood) to use as energy first. 

Come hear more about this and other myths at our event on September 18th. RSVP to Kristen at info@platinumchiroca.com to save your spot.
