Nutri-Spec: Clinical Nutritional Program

Wellness Chiropractic offers a clinical nutritional program to our patients. It is comprised of nutritional counseling and clinical metabolic testing.  The metabolic testing is quick and simple. It includes a number of chemical tests on your urine and saliva. It also includes a check of your blood pressure and several other clinical tests performed in our office. The entire process takes only a few minutes. The purpose of metabolic testing is to determine in just what ways your body’s metabolism is out of balance. From this information we can tell what foods and what supplements will bring you into nutritional balance, as well as what foods you should avoid.

There are five fundamental metabolic control systems which must function properly to keep you strong and healthy. These metabolic control systems determine how efficiently your body and mind work. They control your energy production, heart and circulation, brain and nervous system function, efficiency of digestion and assimilation of nutrients, chemical balance in blood and cells, regulate hormone balance, eliminate the toxic waste products of metabolism, and minimize the degenerative changes associated with the aging process.  

These fundamental metabolic control systems are the engines that drive your body and mind. When one or more of these control systems loses efficiency, your body and mind simply cannot perform at their best. When the metabolic imbalance is severe enough or exists for a prolonged period of time, pathological changes occur and you suffer the symptoms of disease. These could include:

  • chronic fatigue and lack of energy
  • high blood pressure
  • digestive problems
  • joint and muscle pain
  • depression, anxiety, or nervous tension
  • allergic sensitivities
  • blood sugar problems
  • weight gain
  • headaches
  • insomnia
  • premenstrual tension
  • menopausal hot flashes and other hormone related symptoms

The goal of the program is to restore balance to your metabolic control systems, thus increasing your adaptive capacity. The results will be:

  • better resistance to disease
  • renewed strength, such that functional and pathological symptoms can be overcome faster
  • more complete tissue repair and regeneration
  • effective handling of stress
  • a higher level of vitality
  • a slowing of the aging process

One of the key concepts of the Nutri-Spec program is biological individuality. Everyone has different nutritional requirements for their body to produce energy efficiently and to perform all its other functions efficiently. Only with a scientific, objective testing system can your specific nutrition needs be precisely determined. 

Our goal at Wellness Chiropractic is to help you reach optimal health and wellness by restoring balance to the five metabolic control systems that regulate all your body’s essential functions.
