Dr. Lee's Spine Center Encourages Eating Well As a Vital Component of Treatment

QUEENS, N.Y., Jan. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The doctor and staff at Dr. Lee's Spine Center believe good nutrition is an important component of chiropractic treatment and overall wellness. While a proper, nutrition packed diet can lead to weight loss, its benefits reach beyond the number on the scale. Good nutrition is vital for chiropractic patients, especially those who are recovering from injury or other trauma to the body. Eating a balanced diet of lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and healthy carbohydrates helps the body to repair tissues, restore nerve function, and heal much more quickly than in patients with less than optimal diets. Good nutritional intake helps detoxify the body and when combined with chiropractic, can lead to an improved quality of life in general.

According to Dr. Lee, of Dr. Lee's Spine Center, "the old phrase 'we are what we eat' could not be more true. We take in nutrients that fuel our body and become part of our muscles, tendons, bones, and tissues. So it stands to reason that when we select our foods we should choose a variety of healthy choices that will have the maximum benefit for our body. For example, choosing a diet rich in Omega 3 fats and antioxidants will reduce inflammation throughout the body."

Dr. Lee recognizes that the New Year is particularly attractive to those who want to establish a healthy lifestyle. "When New Year's Eve comes, we make many resolutions about the coming year, especially in regards to our diets," he stated. "We believe that eating well is a year-round endeavor and to help our patients we offer nutritional counseling and support. We can examine your current diet and lifestyle and make small changes that will stick with you for the long term."

Dr. Lee's staff recommends that patients consume a diet rich in whole foods including organic vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. According to Dr. Lee, "we have learned that this type of diet quickly removes built up toxins from the body. Our livers and other vital organs do as much as they can to filter these out, but we are overloading them with artificial flavors, preservatives, and chemicals. Once they become overloaded, they store these toxins in our fat cells which affects our overall well-being. This is why switching to a whole foods diet is so critical. By doing so, we give our bodies an opportunity to work as nature intended and return to a state of wellness and balance."
