Diet, Nutrition and Chronic Pain
The role of diet and nutrition is often overlooked and under-appreciated as a significant contributor to chronic pain. At Accurate Clinic we strongly advise people to address their diet as part of their means of reducing chronic pain. While this is critically important for those chronic pain patients who are obese, the role of diet in inflammation and pain has been well established by current nutrition research. All of our pain patients are provided with appointments with our dietitian for nutritional education and guidance.
Diet, Nutrition, Anxiety and Depression
Not unlike chronic pain, the role of diet and nutrition is often overlooked and under-appreciated as a significant contributor to mood disorders. Research has especially found very specific roles for diet as a significant contributor to depression. All of our anxiety and depression? patients are encourage to meet? with our dietitian for nutritional education and guidance.
