Nutritional Guidance in Aurora

Fundamental to Health & Wellness

person cutting bell peppers on a chopping boardHere at Buchar Family Chiropractic, diet is an important pillar of a healthy lifestyle. We believe the core essentials are chiropractic, nutrition, fitness, mindset, and sleep. Pairing a balanced diet and the supplements that support your deficiencies with regular chiropractic and exercise routines and a healthy mindset and sleep schedule could ultimately elongate, improve, and increase the overall quality of your life.

No amount of exercise can justify a poor diet, and vice versa. We reconcile your physical condition with your diet by adjusting the quality and quantity of your intake along with any necessary supplements.

Diversified Diets and Targeted Nutrition

Our doctors recommend a generally diversified food diet, but if our patients have specific nutritional concerns or issues that we need to remedy, we often target our solutions in a customized care plan. Targeted nutrition often involves the addition of supplements to correct imbalances or deficiencies and return your body to a place that can be supported by a normal diet.

Our office can help you determine your specific nutrition needs by engaging in a consultative interview, reviewing your ailments, and using in-office testing. We do digestive health, gut balance, and micronutrient testing that allows us to review the nutrient levels in your blood to determine deficiencies. Deficiencies can arise even if you feel that you have a good diet, so reviewing your bloodwork is an important piece of the process.

Once your body becomes inflamed and irritated by a bad diet, the system starts to run poorly and seemingly unrelated issues arise. Diet is one of the primary culprits of out-of-balance systems that can be remedied fairly quickly under the proper guidance. There are many ailments nutritional adjustments can help.

People can experience improvements in the following areas when they address nutrition:

  • Obesity
  • Sleep issues
  • Fatigue and energy issues
  • Focus
  • Depression
  • Inflammation
  • Irregular cycles and hormonal imbalances

  • Immune system
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Allergies
  • ADD
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Skin and acne issues
  • And more!

Our nutritional guidance program starts with a brief consultation, where we determine your current concerns and goals. This process involves a detailed questionnaire that helps us understand your diet, reactions you generally have to certain foods, and a general assessment of your overall health to determine the different impacts your diet is having on your body. We require this information so that recommendations, specialized testing, and further investigations can be tailored to your specific needs.

After the information-gathering stage, we schedule any necessary testing and set up your first appointment, where we can go over your results and our findings. Together, we plan an achievable diet, recommend any necessary supplements, and design an overall plan of action that may include other aspects of functional medicine.

A Core Value to Health

Nutrition has been a core tenet of our office’s approach to health since our inception. We find that our chiropractic adjustments are well supported by proper diet and exercise, and our patients are able to see results much faster and on a greater scale when they incorporate a full lifestyle change.
