Are you living on sugar, flour and oils, the typical American Diet? It is the cheapest diet in the world and drives the American economy. This weekend, the staff at Maloney Chiropractic Clinic had the opportunity to attend a conference called “The Nutritional Adjustment”. Dr. Seaman is known for the “Deflame Diet” which is designed to help reduce systemic inflammation in your body through diet. There are certain foods that have pro-inflammatory properties leading to systemic inflammation in the body which causes things such as aches and pains, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, acne, aging, syndrome X, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, stroke, Alzhemier’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, psoriasis, eczema, fatigue, and multiple sclerosis.
Dr. Seaman’s diet is designed to reduce or eliminate symptoms and disease caused by inflammatory diets. This nutritional component is foundational to patient’s health and may be the actual cause for their pain rather than some sort of mechanical insult/injury. The “deflame” diet is designed to be implemented if the patient does not respond to chiropractic care or to tackle pain and dysfunction in the body that is typically not treated by spinal manipulation.
