What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The holistic nature of chiropractic health care is concerned with the whole person and proper diet and nutrition are an essential part of health and wellness. After all you are what you eat and, able to digest.
The foods you eat and the fluids you drink are essential for your body's chemistry to function properly and your body's ability to grow, heal and maintain itself. Even with a good diet vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients are often missing or deficient This is why Drs. Phil and Rhonda Petsch take the time to individually test their patients using Applied Kinesiology to determine what nutrients your body needs. In addition to testing for supplements we also test our patients for food allergies because so many people are sensitive to some of the foods they are eating. Food allergies can cause a lot of problems from headaches to joint and muscle pains to digestive problems. Once we have figured out your nutritional needs and food sensitivities we will provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is tailored to your individual needs, including detoxification programs.
