Nutrition and Supplementation for Wellness

Nutrition and supplementation are essential for overall health and wellness, but they play a critical role in functional medicine. Functional medicine is a branch of medicine that focuses on chronic health conditions and strives to find the root cause of illness or disease. Our functional medicine practitioner at Rob + Katie Truax in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, is highly trained and experienced in nutritional counseling.

How Does Nutritional Counseling Work?

Our chiropractor will ask about your medical history, current symptoms, and lifestyle during your initial functional medicine consultation. Based on this information, they will develop a tailored nutritional plan that meets your needs. This plan may include recommendations for certain foods to eat, avoid, or use for dietary supplements.

Why Is Nutrition Important?

Nutrition is essential for overall health and wellness, but it is necessary for chronic pain patients. Several factors can cause chronic pain. These factors include the following:

Nutritional Deficiencies

If you are not getting enough of certain nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, or omega-3 fatty acids, it can lead to chronic pain. Nutritional counseling can help you identify any nutritional deficiencies and develop a plan to correct them.

Inflammation

Chronic inflammation can lead to pain, stiffness, and swelling. Nutritional counseling can help you identify foods that may be causing inflammation and develop a plan to avoid them. Our chiropractor may also recommend other nutritional supplementations to help reduce inflammation.

Hormone Imbalances

Hormone imbalances can cause various symptoms, including pain. Having your hormone levels checked and working with a functional medicine practitioner to correct any imbalances can help relieve your pain. The nutritional plan may also include recommendations for certain foods to eat or avoid to help balance your hormones.

Digestive Issues

Digestive issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), can cause chronic pain. Our nutritional plan focusing on healing the gut can help relieve pain and other symptoms. It may also include recommendations for probiotics and other dietary supplements.

Stress

Chronic stress can lead to pain, fatigue, and other health problems. Nutritional deficiencies can exacerbate these problems. Getting nutritional counseling can help you identify foods that contribute to stress and develop a plan to avoid them. Nutritional supplementation, such as omega-3 fatty acids, can also help reduce stress levels.

Detoxification

Detoxification is essential for overall health and wellness, but it is vital for those suffering from chronic pain and other chronic health conditions. Nutritional counseling can help you identify foods and supplements that will help support your body’s natural detoxification process.
