Our daily nutrition is another vital piece to overall health and longevity. While Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation’s services such as physical therapy and chiropractic are extremely important, they will not be as effective without a consistently healthy diet. With a good nutritional diet, a number of health problems can be prevented. A healthy diet will also assist in alleviating an array of health issues. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, our Red Bank nutritionists work with patients to identify a plan towards nutrition and help achieve their goals. A healthy diet begins by identifying the types of food that are hazardous to one’s health.
Recent studies have found that numerous food-borne pathogens can precipitate long-term ailments such as heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, neurological problems, autoimmune disorders, kidney damage, and even cancers. Short-term effects of certain food-borne pathogens also pose a serious problem. Every day in our country, thousands of people become sick from food-borne illnesses. Some of these people are hospitalized or even die.
Nutrition is defined as the process of nourishing our cells and body with the nutrients necessary to support life. There are seven types of nutrients which include water, vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, fiber, and carbohydrates. A healthy balance of each of the seven types of nutrients provides our patients with a path to nutritional health.
