Alexandria Chiropractor Announces Holistic Health Counseling Services

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - Nov 10, 2011) - Spine Care Associates of Alexandria announced that they have an on-staff holistic health counselor to help patients achieve good health through nutrition, exercise and lifestyle assistance. Amy Andrejewski is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor that helps patients increase energy, reduce food cravings, find long-lasting relief from digestive problems, and enhance overall happiness. Ms. Andrejewski's services are designed to complement chiropractic care, massage therapy and other treatments that the wellness center offers for pain relief.

Dr. Philip Connolly, a chiropractor with Spine Care Associates of Alexandria, announced that his practice offers holistic health counseling for nutrition and lifestyle advice. Amy Andrejewski is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor who works with patients to help manage health concerns through diet, exercise and lifestyle.

"We are pleased to have Ms. Andrejewski as part of our wellness team," said Dr. Connolly. "As a chiropractor, my goal is to help my patients not only enjoy long-lasting pain relief, but also to optimize all aspects of their health. Holistic health counseling is an important component to whole body wellness."

Ms. Andrejewski helps patients improve overall health, increase energy and reduce food cravings through dietary counseling and lifestyle advice.

"As a health counselor, I understand that every body is unique," said Andrejewski. "No single diet will work for everyone. I've studied all the major diet theories, and work with each patient to develop a plan that works for their lifestyle. Losing weight can be tough, but it doesn't have to be a mystery. I understand the nutritional science behind weight loss, as well as how dietary changes can help enhance energy and naturally manage many health problems."

According to Dr. Connolly, patients who are healing from an injury or managing chronic back pain can also benefit from holistic health counseling. For example, Dr. Connolly stressed that a diet high in antioxidants can naturally reduce joint swelling and inflammation, complementing chiropractic treatments for pain relief.

"Many patients don't realize that health counseling is more than just weight management," said Dr. Connolly. "While maintaining a healthy weight is important, our holistic health counseling services can help the entire body stay healthy by reducing pain, enhancing digestion and increasing energy."

Ms. Andrejewski can also help patients manage their gluten allergies through gluten-free diet counseling. Ms. Andrejewski has been gluten free for six years, a change inspired by chronic fatigue and digestive problems that seriously impacted Ms. Andrejewski's health.

"I had always been relatively healthy until my mid-twenties, when I began to suffer from constant headaches, fatigue and digestive problems," said Ms. Andrejewski. "When doctors could not find anything wrong and medication failed, I knew there must be a better way. Through natural changes to my diet and lifestyle, I was able to correct these health problems."

Ms. Andrejewski's journey back to good health inspired her to share her knowledge with others. She trained at the New York City Institute for Integrative Nutrition and received a certification from the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
