Family Health: Nutrition and Chiropractic for Daily LivingDecember 3, 2015
Your family is the group of people you care about most. Day in and out, kids and/or spouses are going to school, work, practices, games, rehearsal, ballet…the list goes on. These inevitably busy schedules make it nearly impossible to maintain overall family wellness. From the food they eat, to the physical/mental demands they experience, family health and wellness is variable. Luckily, with nutrition and chiropractic care, your family can find a healthy balance for both body and mind. Increasing your family’s fruit and vegetable intake and incorporating family chiropractic care can make a BIG difference in their overall health and wellness starting today.
Increase Fruit and Vegetables
This point is no surprise. A recent survey found that only 20% of high school students eat 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day (the recommended amount). The potent power of fruits and vegetables is unmatched, yet many families lack both as a part of their collective diet.
Taking the time on a weekend day to pre-cut and package an assortment of in-season fruits can make the weekly diet a possibility. Get the kids involved, too. Cutting and preparing can be much more fun if it is a family event – not to mention that the kids will start packing more for their to-go lunches. During the week, make the extra effort to include a side of vegetables with the main dinner entrée, too.
Fruits and vegetables can boost your immune system, focus, and energy – taking your family’s wellness to the next level.
Family Chiropractic Care
The truth of wellness is that even if you are fueling your body with the right foods, a body is not healthy until its spine is. As your family meets the daily physical demands of life, it is essential that family chiropractic care is implemented into your wellness plan. Regular chiropractic adjustments can boost all aspects of your body:
- Manage your symptoms: Chronic headaches, sinus problems, high blood pressure, ear infections, leg pain, arthritis, and many other illnesses have reported significant relief after chiropractic adjustments.
- Improve your mobility: Regular chiropractic care can improve range of motion and mobility in healthy individuals or people facing facet joint injuries, osteoarthritis, or sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
- Boost your immune system: When your spine is out of place, your immune system is not functioning to its best ability. Bacteria and viruses are inevitable, so it is essential that your family’s immune systems stay at full force.
Complete wellness is essential to healthy individuals and thriving families. If your family needs to refresh its attention on wellness, begin by implementing a healthier diet and regularly receiving chiropractic care. What you do today will prevent your family from health problems tomorrow.
