Feel Better Today / Nutrition & Food Sensitivity
Nutrition is a very important aspect that needs to be addressed when making lifestyle changes. At the Chiropractic Health Center, Dr. Maggie works with Standard Process and Metagenics vitamins and minerals to help you reach your nutritional goals. Standard Process products are made from whole foods. These products are organic and not chemically derived. The body can assimilate them into the body much more efficiently because of their natural formulation. We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients’ return to optimal health.
Here is a partial list of our most popular Standard Process Inc. Dietary Supplements and programs which include:
· Standard Process Vitamins · Standard Process Purification Program · Standard Process Detox Formula · Standard Process Weight Loss
Standard Process Purification, Cleanse, and Weight Management Program Maintaining a proper weight gives your body the best opportunity to be healthy. This 21 day purification program is an effective way to lose weight, reduce cholesterol levels, improve lipid profiles, and support all of your organ systems that play a role in purification. The purification program is more than just a diet. It encourages patients to adopt a healthier lifestyle, which, in turn, restores wellness.
Standard Process Clinical Study A research article published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine discussed the clinical effectiveness of the Standard Process Purification Program. The results from 28 chiropractic patients strengthened the theory that a calorie-restricted whole food diet along with supporting nutritional supplements, administered under the guidance of a trained health care professional, can support healthy serum lipids and weight.
Purification Program Details The 21-day purification program is so effective because it focuses on the whole person making better food and beverage choices, taking whole food supplements, reducing stress, and increasing exercise. The purification program is more than just a diet. It encourages patients to adopt a healthier lifestyle, which, in turn, helps them look and feel better.
This streamlined, easy-to-follow program emphasizes whole, organic, and unprocessed foods; whole food supplements; and water. Vegetables and fruit are eaten from days 1-10, with select proteins added at day 11. Whole food supplements taken during the program included:

Other supplements such as Whey Pro Complete, a protein powder with 15 grams of protein per serving, can also be added to the protocol to support purification. Schedule a Nutritional Analysis or Food Sensitivity Test
Food sensitivities seem to be a hot topic these days. The symptoms of food sensitivities and allergies are quite different. A food allergy normally causes a quick and obvious reaction, such as swelling, rashes or difficulty in breathing. The symptoms of food sensitivities are delayed. The following are just a few examples: fatigue, lethargy, needing to sleep after you have eaten; mood swings, depression, restlessness, headaches, migraines, joint pain, gas, bloating, and indigestion. Many times the food we eat frequently and seem healthy are contributing to our health problems. Elimination of these offending foods can improve your health and lead to a better quality of life!
