Helped This Diabetic Eat Better

If you had told me a Cary chiropractor could help me with a new diet, I would have thought you were crazy. Who ever heard of such a thing? Surely only a nutritionist would know anything about diets. Even a doctor would know more about eating healthy foods than a chiropractor. I always thought chiropractors worked on backs and muscle problems in the neck. I sure didn’t think they would know anything about eating better. When I got diabetes, however, I needed all the help I could get and that is what led me to a chiropractor here in town.

I tried the doctor, but it turns out doctors don’t know much about diet. They’ll try and refer you to the old nutrition chart put out by the government years ago, the chart that says carbohydrates are just great and you should eat lots of them. That chart is so wrong that it is likely why so many people develop diabetes later in life. The nutritionist wasn’t much better, although they did know carbs are bad. They tried to sell me on some expensive diet plan that I couldn’t afford. That’s why I eventually ended up the chiropractor.

At first I figured I would experience the same frustrations as detailed above, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. They knew all about the carbs and how bad they are for my diet. They sat down with me and we talked extensively about what I needed to eat in order to control my blood sugars. Lots of vegetables and lean meats like chicken while getting off of grains like bread and noodles. I can even have fruit, but with some caution as they do contain many sugars. Of course, processed sugars are off the menu altogether. I can’t say enough good things about the chiropractor! My blood sugars are already dropping like a rock.
