When a patient is pain free, wellness chiropractic care is a very effective method to maintain lasting health and wellness. Often visits once or twice a month are sufficient to keep the body in balance.
To support chiropractic wellness visits, Dr. Davis recommends the following lifestyle and nutrition advice for prevention and wellness care:
Eat more raw foods. Fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables always have more natural vitamins and minerals.
Choose organically grown foods when possible because they have lower amounts of toxic elements.
Consume 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day. Whole-grain breads and cereals, beans, nuts, and some fruits and vegetables are good sources of fiber. High-fiber diets can help prevent digestive disorders, heart disease, and colon cancer.
Drink half your body weight in ounces of water a day.
Exercise at least 20 to 30 minutes three or four days a week.
Eat out more sparingly or chose restaurants that are transparent in the food preparation and ingredients. The vast majority of food preparation methods in restaurants often involve high amounts and the wrong types of fat and sugar.
Weekly food preparation and making your own meals including lunch helps control your fat and sugar intake while adding nutritious fruits, vegetables, and grains.
Limit alcohol and quit smoking. Drinking excessively and smoking hampers your body’s ability to absorb nutrients.
