Nutrition at Apol Chiropractic

Box of vegetablesWhenever we are challenged with a major obstacle in life such as a health crisis, it can be very difficult trying to decide what decision to make. Many interventions actually have side effects and long-term developmental problems. That’s why we recommend taking a more lifestyle-based approach to make changes in your health and well-being.

At Apol Chiropractic, Dr. Apol is passionate about providing people with nutritional counseling, which can make a tremendous difference in your health.

Starting Slowly

Today, there are so many surgical and drug interventions that are not necessary, but are what we consider the modern standard of care. It is very important to prevent unnecessary procedures when possible by practicing more modest interventions, so that finally the least invasive approach is used.

Begin with lifestyle changes, whole food nutrients, then use herbs, then drugs and finally, surgery. Two things are accomplished by this: unnecessary procedures are prevented, and two, if a more interventional approach is required one can be confident that is time to employ such as severe intervention knowing that lesser measures did not work.

Restore Your Physiological Balance

Unfortunately, most people are not aware of how effective nutritional interventions can be in creating physiological balance. Accurately applied nutritional tools can profoundly change symptoms and systems. If you’d like to put a nutritional strategy into action, we’ll work with you on our Seven-Pillar Approach:

  1. Endocrine/Hormonal Health. The hormones are the most powerful control system of the body and must be balanced to activate the body’s other powerful systems of repair and healing. Most people lead challenging lives complicated by hormonal disruption and glandular depression. Gradually, we will detoxify the hormone disrupters that interfere and block normal hormone activation, while also tropically strengthening and repairing the seven levels of glands that comprise the endocrine/hormone system.
  2. Glycemic Management. The ability of the body to properly control blood sugar and thus regulate insulin and Cortisol levels is essential to reducing stress and promoting longevity. Many longevity considerations seek to limit the typical elevation of cortisol and insulin spikes that lead to premature aging and the complexity of secondary symptoms like lipid/cholesterol imbalance resulting in heart disease.
  3. Mineral Balance/pH Status. This principally concerns itself over the body’s ability to neutralize the net acid excess that builds up in normal life. When we become too acidic we experience increased inflammation, irritability and emotional intensity. The most powerful effect over this acidity excess if accomplished through the alkalizing effects of certain food and minerals products such as Min-Tran, Organic Minerals and Calcium Lactate from Standard Process.
  4. Inflammatory Status. As we age, inflammatory levels increase due to the cumulative repair deficit occurring in our lifestyles. Indeed, many believe that an elevated inflammatory level is the entry level doorway to almost all degenerative diseases. Inflammation is powerfully affected by allergens, which act as engines that up regulate our inflammatory mechanisms. Identification and removal of the basic inflammatory engines can reduce inflammation and address the repair deficit.
  5. Immune Burdens. Due to incomplete immune process and the use of physiology-interrupting drugs, infections, infestations of parasites and toxicity can be carried in the body as a low grade subclinical burden. Though we may be unaware of these burdens, they exhaust immune function, running down the bone marrow and leaving the body vulnerable to other more lethal issues.
  6. Circulatory Status. Recently, understanding has expanded to see that loss of circulation can cause tissue weakness and even death (necrosis), resulting in the onset of a complexity of diseases. More and more people are using natural remedies to successfully reverse circulatory blockages and bring renewal and healing to the oxygen/nutrient starved tissues distal to the blockages. In any longevity discussion circulatory status must be addressed.
  7. Tropho-Restorative Cycles. The body knows how to repair and correct its own imbalances. There are specific steps the body must go through to heal and repair, yet so often these normal corrective functions are misunderstood and thwarted with drugs or lifestyle that interrupts the normal process. Fever is an example of a commonly misunderstood process of correction. When you suppress a fever, you also interrupt the healing process. It is vital that we become familiar with the difference between a healing crisis of repair and a disease crisis so that the normal self-correcting processes can be allowed to complete themselves and complete correction can be realized.
