Nutrition Health Professional  in Middle Tennessee


Nutrition is such a vital part of your everyday life. Eating the wrong foods, having the wrong proportions, or even lack of eating can play a crucial part in how you feel. There are certain foods that are pro-inflammatory, meaning that when eaten, they tend to increase the amount of inflammation within your body. These food groups include refined sugars, refined grains, flour products, trans fat, and refined omega-6 oils such as corn, sunflower, peanut oil, etc. On the other hand, there are  anti-inflammatory foods that decrease the number of inflammatory factors in your body. These include meat, wild-caught fish and seafood, omega-3 eggs, cheese, vegetables, fruit, nuts, spices, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, and coffee/tea. The effects of inflammation can include depression, fatigue, lethargy, irritability, emotional liability, social withdrawal, and lack of concentration. It's incredible how a change in someone's diet can greatly change their life!

Why Nutrition is Important:

Nutrition is one of the vital pillars of health. To stay out of pain and at a high functioning level we must fuel our body with the necessary nutrients. What we put in our body with will determine how we perform. If we don't have proper nutrition, this can result in a variety of difference diseases or conditions within our body. Nutrition is another tool to keep you out of pain and to get you back to doing the things you love! 

When it comes to nutrition, there are a lot of things that we can look at - what does your blood sample reveal, what color is your urine, are you losing hair, what is your blood pressure, are you suffering from mental illness or brain fog, do you have multi-site joint pain, do you have a history of autoimmune conditions? All of these questions and more can reveal important and vital information when it comes to your movement and performance. 

Perhaps you are deficient in vitamin B6 and that is why you are experiencing numbness and tingling into your fingers? Perhaps you eat too many proteins and not enough fat to fuel your brain, so you are brain foggy. Perhaps you have hypothyroidism which causes your muscles and joints to be achy and stiff. Perhaps you have high blood pressure, which is why you have difficulty keeping up with your kids at the park. The list could go on and on. 

When people often experience pain, they directly think about the physical and biological cause of the pain, without considering any underlying chemical and physiological cause that could be lacking. Therefore, at Tennessee Back Pain Center, we want to explore how your entire body is functioning, beyond just the site of pain. Our goal is to seek out the root cause of the pain, not just the site of pain. The adjustment is a good place to start, but we will take it another step to help address your health as a whole individual.
