According to an article in The American Chiropractor, nearly 70 percent of chiropractors use or reference proper nutrition in their practice. The article states, “They see it as a valuable tool in treating the whole person and keeping their patients free of chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and obesity.”
Proper nutrition is about having the raw materials necessary for health to manifest.
Foods that Promote Wellness
Good nutrition is more than just ditching the doughnuts and banishing those bagels. It’s about making daily decisions to include healthy eating as part of your wellness plan. Adding some of the most nutritious foods to your grocery cart is a good place to start.
An information article from Medical News Today reveals the top 10 foods considered to be the healthiest, according to surveys and sources across North America and Western Europe. For better health, consider incorporating these nutritional powerhouses into your diet:
- Oily Fish
- Leafy Greens
- Sweet Potatoes
- Wheat Germ
- Oatmeal (porridge)
Benefits of Healthy Eating
By making healthy eating a part of your daily routine, you can get more energy, lose weight, reduce medical bills, and possibly add years to your life. Though you may have to pay a little more for that organic kale or wild Alaskan salmon, you could enjoy reduced sick days and fewer trips to see your doctor.
