Seeing a Chiropractor About Vitamins? Why Not?

Seeing a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ about vitamin supplementation seems ridiculous on its face. Who needs to see anyone about taking vitamins, right? Just go to the store, pick up a few bottles, and take them every day. Easy as pie it would seem. The reason I wanted to start taking them is because of age. I’m well over forty and I’m definitely feeling it. I don’t have as much energy as I used to and I started thinking maybe I’m not absorbing as many nutrients through my diet as I did when I was a young man.

I tried to go online and read up on the topic, but it was just so overwhelming. Every website visited seemed to offer contradictory information to what I found on the previous site. Then there was the issue of what I needed to take. There are many niche vitamins out there that I have never heard about and finding out about them was often a matter of just being lucky and stumbling over something that talked about them. Ever hear of NAC? I hadn’t either and it’s an important antioxidant. Sounded like something I would like to take, but how do I know?

A friend sent me to her chiropractor because he does a thing where he draws up a vitamin regimen for patients based on their lifestyle and specific needs. I went in for an appointment and spent a lot of time answering questions and providing information. The result was a sheet that had general vitamins such as one a day multivitamins as well as some niche stuff like fish oil that I hadn’t thought much about. Of course, there were dietary recommendations as well. I’ve been following the regimen for a few weeks now and it’s amazing how much better I feel! It really works!
