Nutritional Support in Cincinnati

glass supplement jarsIn addition to chiropractic care, we offer nutritional support to help patients experience optimal health and healing. At A Better Life Chiropractic, Dr. Smith recommends several supplements to naturally address different conditions.

COQ10 and Ubiquinol for Headaches

COQ10, particularly in its ubiquinol form, is a natural vasodilator. This means it helps widen blood vessels, which can be particularly beneficial for those suffering from headaches. By improving blood flow, ubiquinol can significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches.

Boswellia Extract for Concussion Recovery

For patients who have had a concussion, Dr. Smith recommends Boswellia extract to reduce inflammation throughout the body, aiding in the recovery of brain injuries. This supplement and vitamin D are pivotal in healing and tissue recovery.

People who have had concussions should also avoid fast food and other processed foods, which tend to increase inflammation and slow down the recovery and the healing of damaged tissue. We also recommend avoiding alcohol as that can impede recovery.

Vitamin D – The Sunshine Vitamin

Beyond its well-known benefits for bone health, vitamin D is crucial for immune system support, recovery of brain tissue, and overall healing. It’s a versatile supplement that supports various aspects of health, making it a staple in nutritional recommendations.

Zinc, Quercetin, and Vitamin C

In addition to vitamin D, zinc, quercetin, and vitamin C can help to boost the immune system.

Dietary Adjustments for Healing

Reducing Inflammation with Omega-3s

Incorporating foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, like fish oil, can significantly reduce bodily inflammation, aiding in quicker recovery and improved health.

Avoiding Sugars and Processed Foods

We all know sugar is bad for the body as it contributes to inflammation, cell damage, weight gain and other health issues. That’s why we recommend that patients dramatically reduce their intake of all the sweet stuff. Sugar also has plenty of sneaky aliases, so it’s important to know what those are and be scrupulous label readers as sugar finds its way into many food products.

Similarly, avoiding processed foods and opting for whole, natural ingredients can drastically improve your health outcomes. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, you can be confident that that food isn’t good for you! One of the best ways to get the whole foods your body needs is to shop the perimeter of your grocery store.

Customized Recommendations

As every patient has unique needs. Dr. Smith tailors his recommendations to each patient’s needs, focusing on enhancing the immune system, supporting recovery from specific injuries like concussions, and promoting overall wellness.
