Nutrition is the foundation for all cell function within your body, including every tissue, gland and organ. The old saying “garbage in, garbage out” holds true for the body’s processes that help support your lifestyle.
This is the basic philosophy behind functional medicine. The body will do what it needs to do at the right time and right dosage. We just need to feed it! Whether you want to optimize your daily lifestyle, lose weight, maintain a condition/disease, or do specific blood-work, we will help you determine the protocol that best suits your needs.
At Midtown Chiropractic, we employ nutritional supplements and medical foods as well as counseling and coordination of nutritional care. Your health depends on high quality nutritional products. We only recommend products of the highest quality, safety, and most importantly products that are effective.
At Midtown Chiropractic, we have chosen a core of foundational elements that are essential for each persons health and well-being. Why have we chosen these elements?
Through research, we have found that these elements are acquired in a poor manner with the average modern diet. Many people have experienced faster response to care, reduced overall symptoms, and staying well longer when taking the same elements that Midtown Chiropractic has adopted. These elements are Omega oils, a high quality multivitamin, green foods, pre & probiotic, vitamin D, as well as the addition of joint complex depending on your health care providers recommendation.
If there were ever a magic pill or potion, omega oils are close! Never has there been a substance more researched and studied then omega oils. Omega oils are essential for health and well-being. These oils are required for proper function of the heart, the brain, every cell, tissue, organ and gland in the human body.

Do you get seven to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day? The World Health Organization states “Low fruit and vegetable intake is among the top 10 selected risk factors for global mortality.” This combination of rich antioxidant greens supply the body with the “phytonutrients” found in rich fruits and vegetables that are so hard to get on a daily basis.
Research is revealing that 85% of the American public is deficient in vitamin D. There are only 30,000 genes in your body and vitamin D has been shown to influence over 2,000 of them. This is why it has such widespread effectiveness for so many diseases. It has been helpful for everything from cancer, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart disease. Vitamin D helps with colds and flus by strengthening the immune system.
