Nutrition & Lifestyle
Cultivating balance that prioritizes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health not only enhances an individual’s quality of life but also can reduce the risk of such chronic health problems as cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Dr. Jones’ overall philosophy for balance is rooted in the following strategy:
Good physical health requires good nutrition, rest and exercise.
Good nutrition undergirds a healthy lifestyle. While Dr. Jones makes specific nutritional recommendations to meet her patients’ needs, she generally suggests a diet of organic fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and small portions of organic meat and fish. Ideally, sugar, gluten, corn and dairy should be minimized or eliminated. She also recommends enzymes, probiotics, minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids, as needed, as well as diet solutions for detox, injury repair and inflammation. Eating whole, fresh foods nourishes the body and can help prevent early aging. Read Dr. Jones' blog piece on Nutrition.
Sleep & Rest
Rest and quality sleep allow the body to repair and regenerate. Getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep in a totally dark room, especially between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., supports a well-functioning body.
Exercise, movement and chiropractic adjustments help strengthen bones, joints and muscles, improving range of motion. Exercise also stimulates the lymphatic system, helps maintain a healthy body weight, improves mental health and nourishes and repairs all areas of the body by circulating nutrients and oxygen.
