If you haven’t been here on “Wellness Wednesday” with us the last two weeks, I want to catch you up on what’s happened, because if you have a family member or loved one at any stage of dementia
At Fundamental Health Solutions, our vision for a healthier community begins with patient education. Since 1997, our mission has been to improve the health of our Naples community – one family, one patient and one day at a time.
Our holistic health practitioners are experts in their fields. Our recognized Naples chiropractor and his team members are dedicated to helping patients achieve optimal health. We are able to employ only natural techniques and avoid medications and surgery by evaluating functional disturbance, screening functional movements, examining nutrition and utilizing applied kinesiology. Using this comprehensive approach, our chiropractor can determine root causes by examining patients’symptoms, as well as their lifestyle habits.
By drawing upon the best of conventional and alternative practices, we are able to offer our clients unique solutions that are customized for their specific health care needs and goals. Our Naples chiropractor practice is the proud recipient of the “TLC Center of Excellence,”designation by the Metagenics Corporation, a global life sciences company focused on reversing chronic illness and improving health.
“Let your medicine be food and your food medicine” --Hippocrates
The food we eat supplies much more than just calories for our bodies to burn. Food provides the raw materials from which our skin, hair, muscle, bone and all other tissues are made. Our diets provide the nutrients required to manage and manufacture hormones and enzymes that control the function of all cells. Our bodies use these nutrients to make neurotransmitters that regulate how we think and feel. Therefore, proper nutrition is essential to our overall health. We really are what we eat, which makes optimal nutrition imperative.
As science better understands chronic diseases, we learn that inflammation originates from root causes. Whether discussing maladies of the brain, heart, respiratory or digestive system, the common thread to compromised health is inflammation. Inflammation occurs at the cellular level and compromises energy production, metabolic efficiency and immune function.
At Fundamental Health Solutions, we teach our patients that eating right is one of the three pillars upon which health is restored and maintained. Whether beginning our 10-Day Intense Detox, the 28-Day Cleanse or following our anti-inflammatory diet, our patients learn how to achieve better health, maintain their health, and live full lives. Living a full life means feeling good every day, waking up in the morning without pain, performing at our best, and aging gracefully and healthfully.
After last week’s “Wellness Wednesday,” where we talked about strategies for preventing dementia, I had the most enlightening conversation with a young woman who happens to have a great deal of experience working with dementia patients.
