The Importance of Nutrition & Supplementation
Proper nutrition and supplements are a vital piece of the puzzle to whole body health, and often make a tremendous impact!
Supplements can play such a valuable role in supporting your health and well-being! They are designed to complement your diet and provide essential nutrients that may be lacking from your regular food intake.
The importance of supplements lies in their ability to fill nutritional gaps. Sometimes, it can be challenging to get all the necessary vitamins and minerals solely from the food we eat. Supplements offer a convenient way to ensure you meet your daily nutrient requirements.
For individuals with specific health conditions or deficiencies, supplements can be especially helpful. Pregnant women may take folic acid to prevent birth defects, and those with iron deficiency anemia might benefit from iron supplements. Moreover, athletes and physically active individuals may find supplements tailored to support their performance, muscle recovery, and fitness goals.
It's important to remember that while supplements have their benefits, they should not replace a balanced and varied diet. This is where a focus on nutrition comes into play! Whole foods contain a wide array of nutrients and other beneficial compounds that are not present in supplements.
Before starting any supplement regimen, it's best to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian. Dr. John and Kari are available in our office to help you determine your individual needs and guide you on selecting the right supplements and appropriate dosages for your specific health goals and conditions. We have seen astounding results when our patients use supplements, healthy lifestyle choices and good nutrition in tandem with chiropractic care!

Having seen the incredible benefits of using these precious resources, a group of healthcare and business professionals set out to make that mission a reality in 2008.
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds derived from plants through processes like steam distillation, cold pressing, or solvent extraction. These oils capture the plant's distinctive scent and contain various compounds that give them their characteristic properties and potential health benefits.
