New Year, New Diet

New Year, New Diet?: An Introduction to the Paleo Diet and Its Benefits


Thursday January 16, 2014
1:00 PM
Have a New Year’s Resolution to start eating better? Interested in trying Paleolithic Eating?

Come join Dr. Nancy Smith of Smith Family Chiropractic, Morristown, as she examines the ins and outs of Paleolithic Eating and answers questions for those in attendance.

Although on this diet, a person may eat foods that were available at the time of a caveman, eating this food should not make a person look like one! The Paleo lifestyle is based on biological, physiological, and anthropological science. It focuses on the way the human body is genetically designed to eat: clean protein, vegetables, fruit, nuts, berries, and seeds. It avoids foods the body is not designed to eat (inflammatory!) gluten, dairy, grains, and processed foods. It’s about fresh, real, natural, quality food that you can hunt and gather on your own!

Why try the Paleo Diet? The Center for Disease Control reports that one in every two Americans is chronically ill. 90% of chronic disease is lifestyle related. That means that 90% of chronic disease such has heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune problems, and cancer can be prevented through healthy lifestyle choices. Shifting away from foods at odds with the human body (dairy, grains, gluten, processed foods) reduces inflammation and increases the intake of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. You are literally what you eat.

Bio

Dr. Nancy SmityDr. Nancy Smith discovered chiropractic during her senior year of college. She was attending the University of New Hampshire studying Sociology when she was involved in a serious car accident.  She sustained multiple serious traumas to her spine and was suffering with severe neck pain, back pain, and headaches.  She was unable to find help from the medical community, so she researched alternative options.  As a very healthy, active, athletic person, it was frightening to suddenly be out of commission.

She was never one to take drugs or medication to numb the pain. She was in search of a better way, and found it when someone suggested going to a chiropractor. At the time she had never even heard of chiropractic, but once they started to adjust her specifically and clear the nerve pressures, she healed.  “It changed the course of my life” says Smith.  She saw how chiropractic fit into her whole belief system. It incorporated everything she was passionate about – serving others, helping people to live better lives and teaching patients that health is possible to achieve and maintain without drugs.  She knew then that this was her life’s purpose.

Since 1985 she has been practicing here in Morristown providing chiropractic care and wellness education for the entire family, from infants to senior citizens and all ages in between.  Dr. Smith graduated from the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, Illinois, is licensed in New Jersey and Massachusetts and is the member of the Association of N.J. Chiropractors (ANJC), the International Chiropractic Association (ICA), the Holistic Moms Network and is a Board Member of the Medical Needs Foundation (MNF).

This program is supported by the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.

Light refreshments will be served.
