Have you ever heard the saying, “You are what you eat”? Around here at River City Chiropractic, we believe that’s true! Food is medicine, and the types of food we put into our bodies directly affects how our bodies function. When we feed our bodies with over processed and sugary foods, we get sick. Symptoms and sickness simply tell us our bodies are stressed. One of the types of stress you may not know about is nutritional stress.
Nutritional Stress Can Result From
- Quality of foods you eat
- Eating over processed foods containing refined sugars, additives, and preservatives
- A lack of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet
- Not staying properly hydrated
- Using caffeine to get through your energy slumps
- An inability of your body to digest and absorb nutrients from the food you eat
