Devine Chiropractic Center is pleased to offer comprehensive nutritional assessments and corrective recommendations, which may include supplements and/or diet modification. Each person’s nutritional needs are different, so we offer a variety of products from Metagenics, Mt. Capra, Greens First and Standard Process; all companies whose products I use myself. Each of these companies, chosen for their stellar reputation and product quality in regards to purity and safety, go above and beyond Good Manufacturing Practices and produce products that really do what they say they will do.
I take vitamin supplements and recommend them to all of my patients because most people eat a diet that consists of too much fat, too much sugar, not enough fiber, and not enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Taking vitamin supplements helps to fill in the gaps. Taking vitamin supplements also helps make up for essential elements that are not being produced by our bodies, which becomes even more important as we grow older. After the age of 35, our bodies begin to slow down the production of estrogen in women and testosterone in men as well as other important nutrients.
Over time, our body builds up toxins and natural waste products. Detoxing is the process of cleansing the internal system, to help rid the body of harmful chemicals that may be contributing to fatigue, illness, pain, and poor digestion. Some toxins are produced by our body during normal functions (such as the ammonia produced during the breakdown of protein), but most are chemicals that we are bombarded by on a daily basis, such as pesticides, household cleaners, food additives, drugs, pollution, cigarette smoke, and heavy metals like lead that enter our body when we ingest or inhale them. During “detox”, toxin-laden foods are removed from your diet. The body’s resources are freed up to remove toxins that have been building up in the body, often for many years, by chemically transforming built-up toxins to less harmful compounds and eliminating them the same way it always does, through the skin, bowel, urinary tract, etc. We offer 10-day and 28-day detox programs.
