Chiropractic care focuses on natural healing, and Functional Medicine offers a specialized method of analysis and treatment with natural supplementation. Here are 2 of the most important supplements that I want to mention.
The Hallmark of health: Omega-3s
Omega-3 fatty acids is a healthy fat that has numerous health benefits.
- Raises good Cholesterol HDL & the healthy metabolism of cholesterol
- Reduces inflammatory effects in the body
- Brain health
- Cardiovascular benefits
Top Herb of 2014 by the American Botanical Council: Curcumin/Turmeric
Curcumin helps with just about everything.
- Cellular health & Antioxidant – protects against Oxidative damage/stress
- Safe & effective Pain Relief & potent Anti-inflammatory
- Brain/Cognitive health as a neuroprotective botanical compound
- Digestive health
Curcumin has a long history of use in both food (as a spice) and medicine, dating back some 4,000 years. Turmeric has a deep yellow color because of its makeup of Curcuminoids.
