Generally speaking, the food industry has no interest in providing human beings with healthy and nutritious foods. From a financial standpoint, the benefit of creating processed and additive-rich foods is far too appealing for mega food corporations to ignore. Whole foods, macronutrient balance, and high micronutrient intake are needed for our bodies to thrive. Dr. T understands the importance of proper nutrition and is committed to helping you replenish your body with the fuel it needs to perform your best. Whether it’s weight loss, athletic performance, or just building a healthy relationship with food – we have you covered!
A healthy gut biome has been linked to positive blood flow and inflammation markers. For this reason, we strive to suggest nutritional alterations that will best help the individual heal from the consequences of the specific condition they are experiencing. Nutrition, much like chiropractic care is very individualized and one answer may not be suitable for all populations.

As we stated above, gut health is extremely important – but do we actually know what gut bacteria does? Or why we need it? It helps to think of your healthy gut bacteria as an eco system, and what you put into that eco system effects the ability of the gut to regulate other functions that are governed by the “gut health ecosystem”. Gut health contributes to regulation of sleep, immune function, inflammation, and energy levels. How we eat is a reflection of our relationship with food and our understanding of the need to prioritize good habits and build a strong gut biome. No one is perfect, and no “diets” or “methods” of eating are vastly superior on a macro scale. It’s discovering your body’s key to the optimization of function through food.

Sugar has no nutritional value, and consuming too much added sugar can cause adverse reactions. Obesity, tooth decay, and heart disease are among the ranks according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. Weight gain caused by consumption of sugar is largely related to the additional calories provided by sugary products, not directly from sugar itself. Tooth decay and heart disease are, however, linked directly to consumption of sugar.
If you have arthritis, avoiding processed foods and saturated fats can help the pain, according to the AF. Instead choose fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, whole grains, and beans. Having these foods in your diet can help your arthritis. Inflammation of tendons and joints can largely be traced back to consumption of processed foods over their whole foods alternatives.
Like many other things related to health, it all comes down to habits. Because food is needed to live, it can’t be eliminated from a person’s daily routine. Instead, a person with an unhealthy relationship with food has to learn to control their eating behaviors, emotions and decision making about food. Dr. T knows exactly how to begin to engrain these habits in your day-to-day life. Once the habit is formed, maintaining that relationship becomes much easier.
Simply put, empty calories are calories we get from added sugars or solid fats in our food products or drinks. They serve no purpose other than to make foods more appealing to consumers.
