Whole Food Supplementation & Weight Loss

Whole Food Supplementation & Weight Loss

Dr. Howard Dennis at Elizabethton Chiropractic has been passionate about nutrition since 1982 after he picked up his first set of weights and a copy of Muscle & Fitness Magazine.  Since then, healthy eating, whole food nutrition & micronutrients have been a passion for him and his team. They still believe in giving proper nutrition to the body, and the body has the ability to heal itself.  Proper eating, exercise, Elizabethton Chiropractic care, proper attitude and high-quality whole food supplements are keys to healthier living.

Dr. Howard Dennis and his Elizabethton Chiropractic team understand that even eating the best of diets in today’s fast paced, processed world can’t consistently meet all of our nutritional demands. That’s where high-quality whole food supplements loaded with micronutrients in their natural form fill our nutritional deficiency gaps that our daily diet doesn’t meet.

Dr. Howard Dennis at Elizabethton Chiropractic understand that the food supplement industry is largely unregulated so many companies can be vague on how they make, grow their products and if the content is nutritionally at a quality level.  For this reason, this brings us to the Disclaimer. All of these statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. All of these products are food supplements designed to supplement the diet and support normal physiology and biochemistry and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

What exactly is a whole food supplement?  Whole food supplements are complex ingredients from plant and animal extracts, desiccates and other ingredients that are prepared in a specific way organically to safeguard their nutritional value.  This is why Dr. Howard Dennis and his Elizabethton Chiropractic Team use for the most part Standard Process and MediHerb products as their cornerstones of their whole food supplementation program. Quality standards matter. Just because some vitamin or supplement says it’s natural, from nature or has an earthy name doesn’t mean its organic, whole food or been put together in the best way.

Dr. Howard Dennis and Elizabethton Chiropractic have found the Standard Process company to be transparent and authentic. Standard Process leads the food supplement industry. Their whole food supplements are distributed by Primary Care professionals like Dr. Howard Dennis.  You can even check Standard Process out online or go visit their farm which is highly recommended to fully grasp their natural organic processes to bring you some of the best whole food supplements offered by Dr. Howard Dennis today.

Dr. Howard Dennis and his Elizabethton Chiropractic Team offer many whole food supplements for gastric healing support, too. You know 80% of our immune system is in our gut so we ought to take care of it. Gastrex is one of our show off products in our office that does great for quick relief of gas, bloating and burning in the digestive tract. Gastrex combines tillandsia with extra stomach and duodenal healing support with okra which acts like a mucous band-aid. For deep stomach relief, Chlorophyll Complex with fat soluble chlorophyll extracts for digestive tract healing support or Okra Pepsin E3 for bowel mucous and inflammation support work great.

Digestive Enzyme Support without Betaine HCL can be accomplished with Standard Process at Elizabethton Chiropractic. Multizyme which has pancreatic enzymes from pineapple and papaya. Enzycore is a vegetarian enzyme source which has the highest glutamine content for gastrointestinal healing. We use HiPep through MediHerb which coats the gut lining by using deglycerrhizinized Licorrice root, chamomile flower, meadowsweet herb and chamomile. This does this without negation of our good stomach acids and inhibits helicobacter pylori overgrowth which cause gastritis or ulcers. Prescribed stomach acid medications negate good and bad acids both which leads to malabsorption of nutrients and nutrient deficiencies.

Nerve support synergy with Neurotrophin PMG and St. John’s Wort especially with all the head and brain injuries in motor vehicle accidents, falls, soccer, football and other head injury incidents.
