A Patient’s Retrospective Thoughts After 6 Months of Functional Wellness Pt. 5/5

A Patient’s Retrospective Thoughts After 6 Months of Functional Wellness -10 things I’ve learned since starting this amazing health journey. By:  Keitha McLain Thoughts by:  Dr. Chris Jones, DC 9.  “Avocados aren’t as bad as I thought they were!  I still remember the day you talked me into trying one.  Now I put one in my smoothie every morning.  It isn’t the same without it.” Keitha Dr. Jones, DC thoughts: As I said before, I love introducing people to new foods!  Maybe because I was a super picky eater when I was a kid and now I’ve realized how ridiculous I was for not eating things because it looked ‘weird’.  A soft avocado in a smoothie is a great way to increase healthy fats, keep you full longer and get lots of extra fiber and nutrients.  As an extra bonus- you are putting your body into fat burning mode with [...]

Celiac Disease is well understood in the medical community as a condition caused by gluten and other related proteins.  Non-celiac gluten sensitivity, aka non-celiac wheat sensitivity, has remained a hot topic between health freaks and naysayers for years now. Now, research out of Columbia University is supporting non-celiac gluten sensitivity as a [...]

A Patient’s Retrospective Thoughts After 6 Months of Functional Wellness Pt. 4/5 -10 things I’ve learned since starting this amazing health journey. By:  Keitha McLain Thoughts by:  Dr. Chris Jones, DC 7.  “Once you quit eating sugar you quit craving it. Again, I was addicted to sugar and always wanted something sweet.  Those cravings are long gone.  I’ve missed chips and salsa more than I’ve missed sugar!  But I have found a way to enjoy that again…see #8!”  Keitha Dr. Jones, DC thoughts: It’s TRUE!  The great thing about my healthy lifestyle plan is that your cravings go away rather quickly.  Why?  Because this plan isn’t depriving.  It doesn’t starve you or make you do crazy things like ONLY drink lemon water with maple syrup and cayenne pepper for a week straight.  When you eat a well-rounded anti-inflammatory diet your stomach and brain are nourished with everything they need….so therefore [...]
