Nutrition

Here at Align chiropractic we believe in a whole body approach to health care. Providing your body with the best fuel is an integral part of your health. We offer quality nutritional supplements from some of the most renowned companies including Standard Process, Metagenics. We keep a small stock of commonly used supplements in the office, but are able to order nearly any supplement, protein, vitamin, detox program and more that you may need. 

Standard Process Purification Program

 

The Standard Process Purification Program is a 21 day plan that focuses on cleansing the body of toxins and 'resetting' your metabolism using whole food nutrition and supplementation to support these processes.  

21 days:

  • Weight loss reported between 5.2 and 19.9lbs (average 11.7 pounds)

  • Decreased BMI between 1.3-4.2 kg/m2

  • Waist circumference decreased an average of 1.3 inches

  • Total cholesterol levels decrease 11-77mg/dL

  • LDL decrease 7-67mg/dL


Why should you do it?

1. To lose weight or maintain a healthy weight

  • Even under the supervision of a physician it is unsafe for overweight-obese adults to experience weight loss greater than 3.3 to 5.5 pounds per week on any diet or weight loss plan.  Please be wary of weight loss programs that promise greater losses.  


2. Prevention of chronic diseases associated with being overweight or associated with high cholesterol (I.e. Cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes, and various types of cancers)

  • Almost all of the participants of the study reported improvements in energy levels, weight management control as well as gastrointestinal health.


How does it work?

Nutritional supplementation throughout the 21-day process includes:

  • 7 days of a cleansing supplement (SP Cleanse) to detoxify your system, balance hormones, and jump start your metabolism

 

  •  21 days of a fiber supplement (GastroFiber) containing oat bran concentrate and apple pectin

    • Increasing dietary fiber above 22g/day is associated with decreased total cholesterol and LDL (the bad type of cholesterol).  

    • Oat bran is a great source of phytosterols which are demonstrated to reduce cholesterol as well as triglyceride levels.

 

  •   14 days of SP Green Food, a supplement high in prebiotics as well as probiotics.

    • Balancing your gut flora with pre- and probiotics helps you better break down fats, better absorb the nutrients you are eating, and improve your overall immune system.   


Research shows that weight loss plans are most effective when they promote healthy weight loss, improving lipid profiles and insulin levels, inducing metabolic adaptations (changing your metabolism), and reducing oxidative stress (detoxing).

As always the most important factor in weight loss is YOU.  You must have the desire to be dedicated to adhering to a 21-day plan as well as ready to accept changes in your long-term lifestyle and eating habits.  Your dedication is essential if your goals are sustained weight loss and long-term health benefits.

Committing to give your all and investing in the Standard Process Purification Process does not stop there.  The doctors at Align Chiropractic are there to help you step-by-step and answer any questions you may have as well as to support you and hold you accountable for sticking with the program to reach your goals.  Support may also be found on the Align Chiropractic Blog where you can read about Dr. Allison’s experience with the process.  If you follow Align Chiropractic on Pinterest, you will have access to an abundance of cleansing recipes.

Applied Kinesiology

 

Applied Kinesiology can be used in conjunction with chiropractic treatment.  'Kinesiology' is the study of movement, and this technique focuses on how the body is functioning as a whole.  Muscle testing is performed to determine areas of weakness.  With this certification, the doctors are proficient in muscle testing, clinical nutrition, gait and postural analysis, functional screenings and acupuncture meridian therapy.
