Q: Exactly what is Nutritional Medicine, and how does it work?

A: Nutritional Medicine refers to the practice of using Food to Heal, Food to Treat Illness and Food for Prevention.

One of the greatest minds in Medicine & Research knew this decades ago when he said . . . “Let Food be Your Medicine”

Unfortunately, we have forgotten this . . . we have been told to forget this. . .

In its place, we are being told to believe that man-made, synthetic concoctions developed in laboratories can do it better than food…that feeding our bodies & our children’s bodies, processed food, fast food, and altered food is okay?? That food loaded with arsenic, steroids and animal growth hormones won’t hurt us and that drinking water full of Chlorine, Bromine and pharmaceutical residue is acceptable

But, it’s not all our fault, it’s:

  • Deceptive marketing practices
  • Government agencies (FDA, EPA, etc.) that are letting us down, selling out, and being “bought out.”
  • Pharmaceutical Giants who can’t make a profit on Food as medicine. So they market to doctors, health agencies, to the masses, assuring them that drugs and chemicals are the answer to health.. . . .certainly not simple FOOD.


Eating healthy and right is not the easiest thing to manage in our fast paced world. We live in a society that places top priority on being fast and convenient. But, it is undeniable, our poor eating habits are not only promoting sky-rocketing rates of obesity, disease and cancer, but are literally killing us.

Dr. Wright of Palos Chiropractic & Holistic Health understands this. He gets it.

He specializes in locating that missing link(s) you’ve been looking for.

At our Palos Chiropractic & Holistic Health:

  • We pinpoint what your health issues are
  • We pinpoint what they are being caused by
  • We outline what manageable steps you need to take
  • We teach you how you can live realistically in our world and become that healthy, vibrant person again

According to:

The Journal of Food Science and Nutrition

Scientific research has shown time and time again that numerous medical conditions can be treated as effectively with food and nutritional supplemental as with medications.

FACT: The food you choose to eat each day sets the stage for:

  • your mood and outlook for that day
  • your patience with people – your ability to handle stress
  • your energy level throughout the day (people who eat correctly, don’t nap 2 – 3 times per day)
  • how clearly you will think and remember things (short term and long term)
  • balance out your healthy bowel movements, frequent urination and digestion (daily flatulence is an indicator your digestion is not working properly. And long term use of “Tums-like antacids” can actually cause more problems by inhibiting your necessary stomach acid production.)

And there’s more . . .

FACT: The food you choose to eat on a daily basis will also affect:


  • your sex drive, hair growth and skin health
  • your ability to maintain a healthy weight and body fat
  • the health or ill-health of your mouth / teeth & gums (bad breath is typically an indicator of bad gums and/or bad digestion)
  • healthy fertility levels in both men and women
  • your quality of life as you age
  • your odds of developing chronic disease and yes, cancer
  • . . . and the list truly does go on and on and on

Building Human Bodies and Building Houses have more in common than you realize.

When low-grade and poor quality materials are used to build a home. .. not long after, things quickly start to erode, weaken, crack, give out and begin to crumble.

Human bodies are the same. Except food is the building material. Keep eating poor quality food, junk food, skipping meals . . . and eventually your body will . erode, weaken, give out and begin to crumble. In the form of obesity, diabetes, chronic fatigue and then eventually cancer.
