The Perfect Diet to Boost Immunity | Chiropractor for Wellness in Boulder, CO
Hello, everyone. Dr. Duff here from TCP Chiropractic. Today, we’re going to delve into the nutritional aspects that can contribute to boosting our immune system and overall immune system function. In our chiropractic office, we emphasize the significance of nutrition as a foundational element for maintaining a healthy body. What we consume plays a crucial role in building our cells and supporting overall well-being. When it comes to chiropractic care, we focus on achieving a strong and healthy nervous system by correcting posture, addressing subluxations, and aligning the spine. However, nutrition becomes an essential factor when additional support is needed.
Foods to Avoid
In today’s fast-paced society, processed foods and a hectic lifestyle expose us to potentially inflammatory foods. Avoiding processed and packaged foods is crucial, while incorporating fresh, natural options such as leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, and berries rich in antioxidants and vitamins is highly beneficial.Certain foods contribute to inflammation, and it’s essential to be aware of and avoid them. Sugar is a major culprit, as it promotes systemic inflammation and can contribute to disease. Refined carbohydrates and gluten, commonly found in breads and cereals, are also inflammatory and best avoided.
Supplements can be valuable in supporting our nutritional needs. Omega-3 fish oil is recommended to balance the ratio of anti-inflammatory omega-3s to pro-inflammatory omega-6s, often found in processed foods. Vitamin C supplements can be especially useful when trying to boost the immune system or combat an impending illness. In addition to nutrition, our office employs low-level laser therapy for inflammation reduction. Laser therapy penetrates deep into tissues, addressing joint pain and enhancing the body’s ability to flush out toxins, aiding in a faster recovery from illness.
