Introducing A Comprehensive Nutrition Workshop Module

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Back To Health Chiropractic Centre In Maple, Vaughan to teach a comprehensive nutrition workshop module in the January 2013.

Maple, ON – It’s not surprising that many diseases are linked to bad diets and eating habits.  Yet, many degenerative conditions and diseases, like cancer, heart disease and diabetes can be prevented simply by following a healthy nutritional plan and with good eating habits.  Back To Health Chiropractic Centre will be teaching a 4 part Nutrition Workshop Module in January.  This is a free workshop series for all patients of Back To Health Chiropractic Centre and non-patient guests as well. 

To read a description of what you will learn at the Nutrition Workshop Module, go to http://backtohealthchiropracticcentre.com/programs-workshops/nutrition-workshop-module/.

“A balanced diet with foods high in nutritional value is an essential pillar to optimal health and well-being”, says Dr. Walter Salubro, family chiropractor at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre.  “Too many people are stuck eating processed foods, fast foods, junk foods and a workshop series such as this one gives people a solid foundation to making simple, yet effective changes in their food intake and eating habits. The result is better health, better weight management and an overall higher quality of life.”

If you are looking to make changes in your diet, improve your eating habits and start choosing healthier foods, go check out the Nutrition Workshop Module at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, which starts January 9, 2013.

 

 

 

7 Ways To A Better Diet For You And Your Family

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

A 2004 Statistics Canada report shows that many Canadians “do not have a balanced diet”.

There is a huge problem today with the diet and eating habits of Canadians. 

The Statistics Canada report, titled “Overview Of Canadians’ Eating Habits”1, by Didier Garriguet showed that:

 

  • A majority of Canadians don’t get enough fruits and vegitables in their diet.
  • More then a quarter of men and women in their thirties and forties get more then 35% of their calories from fats.
  • People of all ages get more then 20% of their calories from other low nutritional valued foods (such as butter, beverages like soft drinks and coffee, foods that are sugar like syrups, jams, honey and high-fat, high-salt foods like chips). 
  • A quarter of Canadians, including adults and children, eat something that comes from a fast food outlet.

The question that is important here is … “How are your eating habits?” 

In the fast-paced, mass-production world we live in today, it may seem difficult to eat a balanced nutritional diet. However, that’s not true.  Eating a balanced diet is possible and we have been teaching this at our clinic for years. You too can start making healthier eating choices for yourself, your children and your family.

Here are some tips that will get you starting to eat a healthier, leaner and more nutritional meal.

How To Prevent A ‘Heart Attack Grill’-Like Incident

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Did you hear? Fox News reported about a man who suffered a heart attack while dining at a popular Las Vegas restaurant and the restaurant is called Heart Attack Grill.

Irony, you call it? Coincidence? Or was it a series of choices that led to an impactful wake-up call for this man? Luckily the paramedics arrived in time to help this man and reports say he is alive.

More then likely this wasn’t due to a one-time meal at a high-calorie restaurant but due to a series of choices that culminated in a traumatic and life-threatening incident.

At our clinic, Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we teach about choices at our wellness workshops and lectures. I tell our patients that the choices you make today in life will shape your future.  And if you want to live a life of your dreams and vision, the choices you make today absolutely matter.  So you owe it to yourself to make the right choices for your health and your well-being, not just for now but for the rest of your life.

Many chiropractors give nutritional advice to their patients. Your family wellness chiropractor can help review your current diet and give you recommendations for changes if necessary.
