You Are What You Eat, Absorb and Assimilate!

nutrition Calgary SW

Often heard is the saying, “you are what you eat.” most patients are well aware, good nutrition and a balanced diet are important components of overall health. What may surprise people with back problems is that diet, nutrition and maintaining a healthy weight also play a major role in the back – including preventing many problems and healing from injuries.

The bones, muscles and other structures in the spine need good nutrition and vitamins so that they are strong enough to support the body and to perform their other functions.

A healthy diet will help you stay at a healthy weight, reduce the body’s propensity towards inflammation, and keep your spinal discs as well as all your tissues hydrated, all of which will help reduce pain from lumbar spine.

Eating a healthy diet alone may not be enough.

There are many factors that determine the recovery and health of your spine and bones.

  • Do you have enough Stomach Acids & Enzymes to digest vital minerals, proteins, which are necessary for building and repairing processes?
  • Are you absorbing the Fat soluble antioxidant vitamins, critical for repair
  • Do you suffer from circulatory imbalances?
  • Is your diet depleting calcium and mineral sources from your bones?
  • Is your Vitamin D regulating calcium levels effectively?
  • Are you suffering of chronic inflammation, due to hormonal imbalances?
  • Is your Liver in good shape to supply your body with clean and high nutrient based blood?

All of these factors and more play a critical role on how quickly
and effectively your body is able to heal itself.
