Nutrition & Chiropractic Care

The Benefits of Good Nutrition With Chiropractic Care.

What is the Connection Between Nutrition & Chiropractic Care?

Everyone knows that the organic, non-GMO, and unprocessed foods are best. But, did you know that none of that matters if you don’t have an optimally functioning nervous system? This is where our chiropractic care will help you!

Disrupted Nervous System, Disrupted Diet

Your nervous system influences every single part of your body, especially your digestion. When the nervous system is not balanced and experiencing disruptions, chances are that no matter how nutritious your meal is, the nutrients that your body needs won’t be properly stored, broken down or even entirely used. But, why?

The nervous system is responsible for telling your body what it needs to do with its fuel. If a disturbance is present, the messages sent between your brain and body will go unread.

Family First Chiropractic Center’s Nutrition Expert, Katie Vigesaa, RD

Hi! I’m Katie Vigesaa, and I am a registered dietitian (RD) with a simple philosophy: nutrition can help. I am an advocate of the real food movement and love teaching my class members and clients the power of real food eating. I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN in 2009. From there, I was selected to be part of Concordia’s Dietetic Internship program. I passed my RD exam in 2010 and have been a practicing dietitian ever since.

The nutrition counseling process is incredibly rewarding; I have helped people with a variety of conditions including autoimmune diseases, sleep problems, fibromyalgia, skin conditions, mood disorders, eating disorders, metabolism imbalances and more. I never tire of watching my clients start to thrive once they change the way they are eating. Increased energy, decreased aches and pains, bright moods, and of course weight loss when needed are all benefits of changing your food. If you want to see how nutrition can help heal your health, all while learning how to eat real foods, I can help.
