Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? So was I.

You work out. Drink plenty of water. You limit your alcohol, meditate daily, do yoga and avoid excess sugar. You’ve tried everything from the Mediterranean diet to gluten free. So, why do you still feel bad?

It’s not in your head

Nutrition

Often, when you can’t put a finger on what is wrong, you start to worry that it’s all in your head. But, this is far from the truth.

Many people suffer from fatigue, chronic pain, digestive ailments, skin problems and other ills. And, the source of these problems, in many cases, can be traced back to the health of our gut.

When we have gut flora that is out of balance, it can lead to a number of maladies. In laboratory studies, mice that were fed diets that contained excessive amounts of sugar not only experienced a change in the microbiology of the gut, they also showed a change in neurotransmitters in their brain. In cases where excessive fat was administered they had higher levels of the kind of inflammation that is associated with obesity.

You can restore your gut and your health

The damage that the modern world does to our balance and our health, we can repair through adjustments to our diets and to our lifestyle. By eating a carefully chosen array of probiotic foods and nourishing foods that support our digestive system’s intricate flora, we can return our gut to it’s natural balance and allow it to better support an optimum level of health.

When your gut is back in balance, you will discover that your digestion improves, you have more energy and focus and that you feel better than ever before.

We want to help you develop the tools to enjoy the best level of health and wellness possible for you. This is why we offer Nutrition Counseling Services at Sparta Chiropractic and Wellness Center.

So what can be done about it?

One of the most important first steps you can take to reduce your stress and improve your overall health is to better understand the importance of gut health on the rest of your body.

Study after study has proven the link between our gut health and both our overall health and our mood.Together, they support the growing theory that gut health should be the primary focus for those trying to develop or maintain an overall healthy body.

Here’s what you can expect at your consultation:

Meet Our Nutrition Counselor: Kelly Elbaum, CNC, RN, BHS

After receiving my Bachelor of Health Science degree at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA I continued my education by completing my Nursing Degree at County College of Morris in Randolph, NJ.

For awhile, I slaved away as an RN at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ. before I left the hospital and began to work in the Pharmacovigilance Department as a drug safety specialist for a pharmaceutical company. Quickly I realized my career choice was unfulfilling.

Having been raised in a a mostly holistic household, I embarked on a soul searching journey for physical, mental, and spiritual fulfillment. During that time I studied and became a level I & II Reiki practitioner and followed my long-time passion for nutrition and natural healing through food. I studied at AFPA in Ship Bottom, NJ to become a Certified Nutritional and Wellness Consultant.

Now, I am excited to be working along side a wonderful chiropractor who has taken care of my family for many years, and to help guide patients to regain and retain their wellness.

If you’re looking to improve your overall health and wellness, taking advantage of our Nutrition Services Consultation is the best place to start.
