Nutrition is a vital part of living a healthy lifestyle, but knowing what foods to eat and what foods to avoid can be surprisingly tricky. In today’s world, we’re bombarded with an ever-changing array of diet tips and conflicting nutritional information that can make it difficult to determine what you should really be eating. Fortunately, you can count on the doctors at Loehr Chiropractic & Acupuncture for expert advice.
Embracing Wellness Through Nutrition
Like improper spinal alignment, poor food choices can be a contributing factor in many common aches, pains, allergy symptoms, and internal illnesses. Consequently, many health issues can be minimized with proper nourishment and supplementation. At Loehr Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we specialize in helping you improve your nutritional choices by offering services like nutrition consultations, diagnostic testing, and supportive resources like classes.
Could You Have a Food Allergy and Not Even Know It?
You know that soda and junk food are bad for you, and you’ve probably realized that your body doesn’t feel its best when filled with heavily processed food. However, you might not know that it’s possible to develop a food allergy at any age. Much like everyone reacts differently to medicine, your body’s reaction to food is unique. You can even develop a food allergy, allergic reaction, or food sensitivity to a food that is seemingly healthy for you.
Symptoms of an Undiagnosed Food Allergy
An undiagnosed food allergy can cause a great deal of misery. The symptoms of an undiagnosed food allergy include the following:
- Chronic headaches or migraines
- Gastrointestinal discomforts (like bloating, gas, or diarrhea after eating)
- Muscle or joint pain
- Fatigue that persists despite sufficient sleep
Could You Benefit From a Nutrition Consultation?
While eating healthy is important for everyone, we recommend that you make it a point to consult with your doctor about your diet if you meet any of the following criteria:
- Pregnant or trying to become pregnant
- Beginning a weight-loss program
