Chiropractic Philosophy is based on the premise that "What's natural is perfect". It is impossible to improve upon what is natural. Health is our natural state. In order to be healthy we must maintain a healthy, natural internal and external environment. If we become sick, it is because our natural state has been compromised, usually because of lifestyle factors...including what we eat.
In fact...molecule for molecule, food is our primary interaction with our external environment. You've heard the old saying for computers...Garbage In...Garbage Out. Well, so it goes with the body. You can't expect to eat garbage that masquerades as food and be healthy.
By design, we were built to consume plant foods (my opinion backed by science). Plant foods give us the best chance to express our health potential. Plant foods help protect us from illness and weight gain...unless you add a bunch of sauces, butter, cheese and other fat foods to them.
Plant foods make you feel good...unless you do it wrong and try to eat only lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers...which will make you hungry all day. You must center your diet around starches. I wrote about this the other day...check out Losing Weight and Keeping it Off With a Plant Based Diet.
Chiropractic care which helps restore bodily function, and plant based nutrition. which is the food we were designed and built to eat...can be a potent combination if done consistently over an extended period of time. They are not quick fixes...but rather lifestyle choices...good ones.
