Nutrition & Healing
Over the last 20 years as a physical therapist treating chronic conditions, I have learned a lot about about pain, inflammation and the healing process. However not until recently, did I understand the incredible response that diet and nutrition can have on inflammation and symptoms.
Tammy Parkinson is the incredible Nutritionist and lifestyle coach that I’ve been consistently working with since November 2020, and I feel better in my 40s than I did in my 20s! Whenever I have this kind of experience, I want to share it with YOU!
If your healing journey is feeling slow, I highly recommend you consider approaching your back or neck pain as part of a whole body treatment approach...looking specifically at how you can decrease inflammatory foods that are contributing to your pain, and increase anti inflammatory measures.
I’ve fallen in love with Dr. Mark Hyman’s Nutritional advice. He makes this vastly growing and complex topic easier to understand and apply.
In addition to diet changes, I’ve become a bit if a supplement “junkie”. I truly believe with the current food industry, no matter how “clean” we eat, we are still lacking. Some of the supplements I’ve been taking that have made a great difference on my inflammation, mood and fatigue are:
Whole Body Collagen - in my morning coffee :)
Plant Based Protein Powder - in my morning smoothie
Essential Greens - this is so good in just water
Inflammatone - I take this any time I'm in pain, even more effective when combined with fish oil
I wish you all the best in your healing journey. Thank you so much for trusting us with your care.
