Charlotte Nutrition Counseling Available at Omni Wellness Center

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Omni Wellness Center in Charlotte, North Carolina announced that the center offers nutritional counseling services and lifestyle wellness advice. The center's chiropractor, Dr. Darcey Walraven Ladner, believes that nutritional counseling is essential to helping the body heal from injury, managing pain including fibromyalgia, and optimizing overall health. The clinic also provides customized plans for weight loss and weight maintenance.

Dr. Darcey Walraven Ladner, a Charlotte chiropractor with Omni Wellness Center, announced that the clinic offers nutritional counseling services and lifestyle counseling.

"Whether it's sharing a healthy recipe on our website's blog or working on-one-one with a patient to develop a customized nutritional plan for long-term weight loss, nutrition plays a vital role in all aspects of my care and communication with patients," said Dr. Darcey. "Just like how a chiropractor can restore proper alignment to the musculoskeletal system, nutritional counseling can restore balance to the internal organs and keep the entire body healthy."

According to Dr. Darcey, proper nutrition is essential to reducing the risk of illness, injury, and fatigue. Omni Wellness Center's nutritional services are designed to help enhance each patient's well being through personalized nutrition plans.

"Every patient is different and has unique nutritional needs," said Dr. Darcey. "Whether a patient needs a condition-specific diet to help manage pain or heal from an injury, or a patient needs a full lifestyle change to lose weight, we create fully customized plans."

Dr. Darcey provides weight loss assistance through balanced diets and lifestyle advice. Her plans focus on realistic, long-term weight loss and lifestyle changes, rather than fad diets to quickly drop pounds. Following her advice, Dr. Darcey says most patients lose between five to seven pounds in the first week and then two pounds in each successive week.

The wellness center's nutritional counseling may help the body heal following injury and safely manage pain. Scientific studies show that diets rich in antioxidants can fight inflammation following an injury, which reduces the risk of swelling and relieves pain. Studies also show that lean protein is essential to helping soft tissue injuries heal.

"The right balance of nutrients and supplements is essential to helping the body heal following an injury, and proper nutrition can also help naturally manage back pain and neck pain," said Dr. Darcey. "A balanced diet can also enhance the effectiveness of other treatments for pain relief, including acupuncture and physical therapy."

Dr. Darcey considers nutritional counseling to be a critical component of any long-term wellness plan. Her approach to treatment focuses on the body as a whole, rather than just symptoms of pain or illness.

"Many patients may think they are healthy, but it's important to understand that good health is more than just the absence of pain or injury," said Dr. Darcey. "Even if you are a healthy weight, if you don't eat the right nutrients, you are setting your body up for long-term health problems and increasing your risk for heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Proper nutrition in Charlotte patients is essential to optimizing overall health."
