Key to Senior Health: Fitness, chiropractic care, and diet (Part 3)

Our last post discussed the benefits chiropractic care can have on your body as you get older. Finding a trusted chiropractor is important to help alleviate body pain, increase mobility, and align your body so you can live a more proactive lifestyle.

Now, in the final part of our three-part series, we’re going to discuss the benefits a healthy diet can have on your body and day-to-day life.

Healthy Eating, Healthy You

It’s likely that your entire life, you’ve heard people, including your doctor, say how important it is to maintain a healthy diet. Whether you’ve been consistent with your diet or have struggled with it, there’s always time to adjust your current lifestyle so you can live a healthier and more balanced life.

Healthy eating changes as you age because your body’s overall function starts to slow down, so you don’t need to eat as many calories in a single day. Instead, your body will require you to consume more nutrients from sources like fruits, vegetables, nuts, and meats.

Not only should you be eating healthy, but you should be consuming a good amount of water every day to keep your body hydrated. It’s recommended that you drink a minimum of 7 cups of water a day to provide your body with the hydration it needs.

Maintaining healthy eating habits and seeking regular chiropractic care from ProActive Health can be a perfect combo toward living a more active and happy life. No matter your age.
