Do you have any of the following symptoms?
Fatigue, malaise, insomnia, susceptibility to colds, bleeding gums, constipation, indigestion, loss of appetite, diarrhoea, irritability, tingling or burning sensation in toes, sore calf muscles, depression and confusion.
If you do, then it is likely your body is lacking is some essential vitamins and minerals. With the right food and supplements, your body will heal itself and you will be on your way to improved health and wellbeing.
What is a balanced diet?
A balanced diet means many things to many people. There are so many diets around that it can be confusing to know why and which type to follow, so we opt for a “balanced diet” to help us make some sense of the myriad of information out there. However, in this balanced diet it is important to ensure the right types of food are included that are optimally suited to you, and that have all the necessary nutrients.
In the 1950’s, there were 300 food additives being used in our foods, today there are over 2,000. These include preservatives, colourings, flavourings, thickeners, emulsifiers, stabilisers, bleaching and maturing agents, buffers, acids and alkalis, artificial sweeteners and MSG. Then there are the sprays, antibiotics, fertilisers and pesticides we also get in our food and it’s hard to imagine any of us getting the right balance of vitamins and minerals, when they are so weighed down by foreign substances!
In addition to this, are you a smoker? Do you take the contraceptive pill? Do you drink too much alcohol? Are you on a restricted diet? Are you on medication? Do you overcook your food and do you eat too much processed food from takeaways or cans?
Eventually our cells become deficient in vital minerals and vitamins battling hard to get rid of all this other foreign matter, leaving us susceptible to disease.
Getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals, so that your body performs its functions effortlessly, takes knowledge and awareness and a little bit of trial and error. At Nitschke Chiropractic, we are here to help you improve your wellbeing with nutritional advice that works optimally for your personal constitution.
