We have witnessed time after time when patients change their diets and pursue positive nutrition, their life becomes much more positive because they start to feel better. Nutrition aides in the recovery of the body’s pain. Positive nutrition such as drinking lots of water, eating an adequate amount of fruits, vegetables and lean protein relieves the stress we put in our bodies. Through proper nutrition, exercise and chiropractic care, the stress that hides in our joints, bones, muscles and ligaments will eventually drain out.
Don't let the blue blood frighten you! Blueberries have been known to help protect the blood vessel structures and blood fats through its antioxidant component. We can rest assured knowing that when we consume 3 cups of blueberries per day we are protecting our cells from oxygen damage that eventually leads to the clogging of blood vessels.
The cells in our body require a good amount of oxygen and often times our cells are starving for oxygen. Our unhealthy habits from the food we consume and the activities we are involved in contribute to nerve cell damage by blocking off the oxygen to the cells. Adding blueberries into our daily diet will give our cells the proper amount of oxygen, overall improving our bone health.
