Nutritional Counseling in Madison, OH

Nutrition plays and important role in bone, muscle and joint health. The nutritional counseling services at French Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Madison help the residents of Painesville, Mentor and surrounding communities in Ohio improve their nutrition and overall health.

What is Nutritional Counseling?

Our individualized nutrition consultations look deep into your body’s system and look at is as a whole.  When the body presents itself with symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, allergies, migraines, bloating, hormonal issues, etc., we don’t generally think of these as direct results of dysfunction throughout the body.  Chronic dysfunction is what we label as disease.  We do not treat the symptoms themselves, but solely treat the person as a whole.  All consideration are taken into account while preparing you health plan, such as eating habits, exercise, lifestyle, sleep patterns, and overall goals.  Along with your new individualized healthcare plan, we will recommend supplements for complete whole food nutrition.

Benefits of Nutritional Counseling

  • Improvement of specific body systems
  • Plans that are individualized based on food preferences and lifestyle
  • Improvement of chiropractic treatment response
  • The restoration of balance of energy

Dietary Changes Help Patients with Healthy Weight Loss

Oftentimes people get trapped on a weight loss roller coaster, losing a few pounds one week, only to gain them all back the next. Fad diets promise miraculous results, but as soon as you return to your regular way of eating, the weight just comes right back. If you’ve experienced this before, then we can help. Nutritional counseling identifies the problems in a patient’s diet that are contributing to weight gain. By introducing dietary changes slowly, patients soon begin to view healthy living as a ‘lifestyle’, and not just as a ‘diet.’ This is the best way to stop roller coaster dieting.

In order to help you realize your weight loss goals, our chiropractors offer dietary and nutritional counseling. During your appointment, our nutritionist will analyze your current diet, lifestyle, and nutritional needs. If you suffer from a reaction to a food such as gluten intolerance, this, too, can contribute to your weight gain and make weight loss more difficult. We will recommend specific dietary changes that will help you not only lose weight, but improve overall health as well.

Oftentimes, our chiropractors recommend a detox diet that resets the metabolism and cleanses the body of toxins. Toxins from artificial ingredients, preservatives, and the environment slowly build up in the body over time, overwhelming the body’s kidneys and other organs and eventually leading to health problems such as weight gain. A moderate detox diet is a safe and effective way to flush out excess toxins and reset the metabolism. Detoxing also helps patients make the transition to routinely choosing healthier foods that are rich in lean protein, as well as vegetables and fruits.

Dietary changes are crucial not only for weight loss, but for overall health as well. Even patients who are at their ideal weight can benefit from a detox regimen. Detoxifying the body strengthens the immune system, thus reducing the risk for illness. When nutritional balance is brought back into the body, patients become more energetic, experience fewer gastrointestinal difficulties, and have fewer headaches.

Whole Food Supplements

They key to healing your body is using nutrients that come from whole foods.  As a nation, Americans are overfed and undernourished.  We eat foods on a regular basis such as cereals, refined wheat and prepackaged foods that are pumped full of preservatives and added artificial ingredients.  By finding and removing these toxins and their barriers such as our poor diets and nervous system interference we are able to enhance your body’s well being.

Even when we eat fruits and vegetables our bodies still become depleted of vital nutrients and minerals as our soil has been depleted of these nutrients due to industrial farming.  By providing your body with quality ingredients that are rich in vitamins an minerals found in food that is free of chemicals enables your body to heal itself. We use Standard Process Products that are free of chemicals and synthetic vitamins to help feed your body.
