Nutritionally healthy eating helps prevent high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and helps reduce the risk of developing chronic cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes. In fact, healthy eating is associated with reduced risk for disease, including several leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Health-conscious eating also reduces the risk of developing conditions such as obesity, osteoporosis, iron deficiency, and even dental cavities. It is well known that proper nutrition promotes the optimal growth and development of children.

Consequences of a nutritionally poor diet can lead to energy imbalances, eating more calories than one burns through physical activity, and may increase one’s risk for obesity. A poor diet can also increase the risk for a variety of cancers. Drinking sugar-sweetened beverages can result in weight gain, overweight, and obesity as well.

About Nutrition at Namaste Chiropractic

Something unique about nutrition at Namaste Chiropractic is the utilization of the Alcat food sensitivity test. Dr. Beth works with patients to help uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues such as gastrointestinal, metabolic disorders and others. The Alcat works by sending a small sample of your blood to the laboratory. After testing, results are presented in a clear and easy to read color-coded format that Dr. Beth will help you understand. The Alcat Test enables you and Dr. Beth to create a personalized nutrition plan resulting in benefits that can be seen and felt. When complying with the Alcat Test results, many clinical symptoms associated with food sensitivity may be substantially improved or possibly prevented altogether.
