Chiropractic nutrition is the use of diet and food supplements to support the chiropractic adjustment and the tool for addressing the biochemical aspect of the subluxation.
The subluxation is the misalignment of a vertebral bone that can be caused by physical, chemical or mental stressors. The subluxation then elicits pressure on the spinal nerves causing pain and dysfunction . Disturbances in nutritional(biochemical) function cause specific subluxations by way of the viscero-somatic reflex. Chronic visceral/organ dysfunction, and or, overload will cause persistent or recurring subluxations that will not heal without proper whole food nutritional supplementation.
Relying on the testimony of the recurring subluxation and Nutrition Response Testing, assessing the neurological system to determine nutritional needs gives the doctor of chiropractic an enormous advantage over other health care providers.
The power of chiropractic supported by the appropriate nutritional therapy enables us to accomplish great things.
“With whole foods and whole food concentrates – containing whole nutritional complexes – the body can choose its need for assimilation and excrete what it does not need. On the other hand, with fractionated or isolated and/or synthetic vitamins, there is no choice; the body must handle the chemical in some manner and can suffer consequences of biochemical imbalances and toxic overdose.” -E. Cheraskin, M.D., D.M.D. & W.M. Ringsdorf, Jr., D.M.D., M.S.
