Whether you want to improve or maintain your current health status, one of the most influential thing you can do for yourself is to eat to enhance and encourage health, not just to get full. Discovering and fueling your body with food that truly works for your body is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.
At BALANCE IN MOTION we incorporate nutritional guidance into our care plans if our doctors feel it is an important aspect of your healing and care, which may include nutritional supplementation. We may also suggest a safe detoxification program to promote healthy weight-loss, improve energy, decrease painful inflammation, and aid in overall repair and healing. It all depends on your initial health consultation, exam, and specific health goals.
We Are Overfed yet Undernourished
As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. Often times the foods we eat, including fruits and vegetables, are not providing our bodies with the nutrition it needs to survive and be healthy. We are eating, yet our bodies are starving, not for calories, but for nutrients. This cycle leaves us overweight and sick with chronic health conditions like diabetes, heart conditions, obesity, cancer and the list goes on and on. At BALANCE IN MOTION promotes local organic farming by hosting a drop site for Morning Song Farm’s CSA program. For information or to register click here.
Here is the good news
Given the proper building blocks of nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to repair and heal. To do so, we need to eat a healthy diet, exercise, and when indicated, take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet and allow our bodies to absorb and utilize vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in the form nature intended.
Whole food supplements complete the nutritional gap
Whole food supplements, like the ones we carry, are made by concentrating foods. When processed correctly, they supply a multitude of the plant’s components and provide nutrients that work synergistically. They work together to provide you with balanced nutrition for good health.
Not all food supplements are created equal and we are always looking for the best products available to help our patients. We currently carry: Standard Process, Medi-herb, and Integrative Therapeutics.
