Nutritional Counseling Supports Whole Body Health
At Body Works Health & Wellness, our Chicago chiropractor Dr. Zaffarkhan is committed to helping all patients live their healthiest lives. Nutritional counseling is an important part of our wellness services and a natural complement to chiropractic adjustments. Just as chiropractic adjustments restore balance and correct alignment to the spine, nutritional counseling brings balance to the body’s organs and systems. In addition to helping patients lose weight, our nutritional counseling services also help the body heal faster after injury, increase energy levels, improve sleep, and enhance all aspects of a patient’s well-being. Our personalized nutrition plans are the first step towards healthier living.
Lose Weight, Reset Your Metabolism and Kick Start Healthier Living
Our approach to nutritional counseling is not “one-size-fits-all”. We understand that every patient has unique weight loss and wellness needs. That’s why so many fad diets end in frustration. When we starve our bodies and deprive them of vital nutrients in an effort to lose weight, we short-circuit the metabolism and end up hungry, irritable and sometimes weighing more than when we started the diet. Our personalized approach to weight loss and nutrition planning is different. Dr. Zaffarkhan starts with a full assessment of a patient’s overall health, current weight, weight loss goals, and lifestyle goals. We believe that balanced nutrition is about more than just losing weight; it’s also about making healthy, whole food choices that nourish your body from within.
If you are struggling to lose weight, our Chicago nutritional counseling services can help you reset your metabolism and balance your diet. Did you know that many so-called “diet foods” are actually packed with preservatives, artificial flavors, and hidden sugars that can sabotage weight loss? Our weight loss starts with a safe, doctor-supervised dietary detox. Next, we create a nutrition plan focused on whole foods, fresh vegetables and fruits, lean proteins, and healthy fats. This plan will help you identify and eliminate unhealthy dietary habits that are holding you back from reaching your goal weight. We can also help you manage cravings for sugar and caffeine.
Nutrition programs are also helpful for patients who may be at a healthy weight, but are interested in making dietary changes to boost energy, athletic performance and fight off feelings of sluggishness or fatigue. Making small dietary changes, like resetting the body’s balance of nutrients through vitamins and supplements or reducing processed foods, can significantly improve overall health. Every nutritional plan Dr. Zaffarkhan creates is fully personalized for each patient’s unique health needs.
Are you frustrated with restrictive weight loss plans that are impossible to follow? Do you know how different nutrients, supplements and vitamins interact and which ones are right for your body? Are you training for a race or trying to enhance your athletic performance but not sure how? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, nutritional counseling can help!
