Dr. Janet Jeranek, Our Chiropractor in Kenosha Provides Nutritional Advice with Corrective Chiropractic Care for Maximizing Health and Well-Being
In addition to Corrective Chiropractic techniques for fixing the cause of nervous system dysfunction, musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, Dr. Janet Jeranek, your Kenosha WI chiropractor, offers nutritional advice valuable for overall inflammation referred to as Meta-inflammation, weight management, hormonal imbalance, gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, and fibromyalgia. By learning what foods are helpful in reducing pain, inflammation and nervous system dysregulation, many people find they do not need to take as much medication prescribed to alleviate symptoms of diseases and disorders. Depending on your medical issue, receiving nutritional advice from a licensed chiropractor may even eventually allow you to avoid taking medications as may be recognized by your medical doctor.
Food and Inflammation
Chiropractors specialize in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal and systemic pain caused by inflammation, a condition involving your immune system's response to internal or external body injury. Much research supports the efficacy of certain foods offering anti-inflammatory and immune system boosting properties that not only alleviate pain but also helps heal damaged soft tissues and joints. If you are diagnosed with any inflammatory conditions, Dr. Janet Jeranek, your chiropractor in Kenosha, may recommend a diet comprised mostly of vegetables, fruits, plant-based protein foods (seeds, nuts, and beans), whole grains and fatty fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids to treat inflammation and reduce pain naturally.
Food and Nervous System Health
For people suffering spinal misalignment, spinal nerve compression, neuropathy or fibromyalgia, Dr. Janet Jeranek, your Kenosha WI chiropractor, will advise a diet aimed at nourishing the nervous system and reducing nerve inflammation. Critical for maintaining nerve health are foods high in thiamine, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and copper. A mineral important for producing neurotransmitters, copper also enhances immune system functioning, fights bacterial and viral infections and promotes healing of injured tissues.
