Cordova Weight Loss Clinic

Hey everyone, it’s Dr. Philip Cordova from Core Chiropractic. I hope you’re all having a fantastic day! Today, I want to address a question that was recently asked during one of our Facebook Live sessions. The question is: “What kind of diet is best for spinal discs?”

Now, when it comes to having perfect spinal discs, I don’t believe there’s a specific diet that guarantees it. However, what I can tell you is that diet plays a significant role in our overall health, including the health of our muscles. And healthy muscles are crucial for maintaining good spinal health.

Over the years, I’ve treated patients with various dietary habits, and I’ve noticed a common thread. Those who consume excessive amounts of soda, neglect drinking water, and indulge in alcohol and processed foods tend to have more rigid and inflamed muscles. On the other hand, patients who prioritize a healthy diet, including plenty of fruits, vegetables, and non-processed foods, experience less inflammation and faster healing.

Now, let’s talk about the specific foods that can promote healthier discs. First and foremost, hydration is key. Drinking ample amounts of water is essential for maintaining the overall health of your body, including your spinal discs. So, don’t forget to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Additionally, incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet can have a positive impact on your spinal health. One fruit that stands out is pineapple. Pineapple contains natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation in your body, including your spinal discs. If you’re not a fan of eating pineapple, you can also find pineapple extract in the form of capsules or pills. Many of my patients who are unable to take anti-inflammatory drugs have found relief by consuming pineapple or pineapple extract.

To further support the health of your spinal discs, it’s important to minimize alcohol consumption, cut back on soda, and focus on whole, unprocessed foods. By adopting these dietary changes, you can effectively reduce inflammation and improve your spinal health.

Remember, when it comes to your health, what you put in your body matters. Think of it as “garbage in, garbage out.” So, if you’ve experienced trauma or are recovering from an injury, choosing a healthy diet can speed up your healing process and provide better overall results.
