Nutrition and Exercise Improve Health and Wellness | Eastside Chiropractor

Clinicians recognize that lifestyle changes can be difficult for patients. Research is currently helping us understand what patients actually need to have in order to produce effective and sustainable changes in their diet, physical activity and overall health.

 

How is nutrition and exercise effective for well-being?

Two intervention studies suggest direct access to healthy food enhance emotional well-being and metabolism respectively. When patients with chronic disease learn by performing lifestyle modification behaviors, even over a brief period of time, both their well-being and wellness improve.

 

Nutrition & Exercise Research Study

 

At a randomized controlled trial over a two-week interval, researchers investigated the effects of giving a group of young people a $10 voucher for fruits and vegetables and twice per day text-reminders versus giving yet another group of young people received the real fruits and vegetables worth $10 with no reminders.

Despite both classes consuming relatively the same amount of fruits and vegetables, such as a greater amount than ordinary even, only the group who had been given fruits and veggies flourished and showed improvements in their vitality and motivation. This study suggests that direct access to healthy food might be necessary for successful dietary modification, even if the clinician is providing “high-touch” support. Quite simply, clinicians might wish to think about exploring their patients’ access to standard meals prior to giving them other tools to help them eat better.

In a different study, over a 12-week period, a randomized controlled trial of 24 breast cancer survivors split them to either a fitness program or a management group instructed to continue their regular exercise routines. The exercise group saw increased muscle strength and endurance, as well as decreased body fat percentage, waist circumference, visceral fat area, insulin levels, leptin/adiponectin ratios, and DKK1 and SFRP1 levels. The researchers indicate that DKK1 and SFRP1 may be useful biomarkers to ascertain both long-term exercise’s advantages along with the prognosis of patients. In addition they suggest exercise might have a therapeutic advantage in those with chronic illnesses.

Fortunately, many integrative and functional medicine practitioners find innovative methods to place new science into practice, and new programs make it possible for clinicians to apply the results from studies such as these right away from the clinic. Many integrative and functional medicine practitioners offer a toolkit containing more than 200 items that help enhance patient compliance to professionals. General ill-being and chronic disorder decreases, when patients learn lifestyle modification behaviors.
