Nutrition

Hinterland Chiropractic | Nutrition - Gold Coast ChiropractorOur bodies function electrically. We all know what happens when the electricity is turned off in our homes or offices.

Suddenly we have no appliances, computers or televisions. In fact, in our society without electricity everything stops.

Generally, getting the proper balance of electricity to feed our appliances is as simple as flicking a switch. Well this simple analogy is exactly the same for us all.

Our bodies require fuel in the form of food to keep us functioning. If we supply the body with raw, whole foods full of nutrients the body needs less energy to put this food to use.

If however, we give the body food that is highly processed with added preservatives the body has to work much harder to sort through the rubbish to find the few nutrients it contains.

Therefore eat food as raw and whole as possible (it’s cheaper too). Eat more fresh vegetables, fruit and complex carbohydrates.

The Chiropractors at our clinic are trained in assisting you with nutritional advice and give up their time weekly to give informative classes, held at our clinic.

It is highly recommended that you attend one of our classes to know more about proper and good nutrition. Attendance is FREE. Ring our clinic as bookings are limited. It could change your life!
