Nutrition and Hydration for Everyday Performance

What we put in our bodies is just as important as our exercise or training.

At Skare Spine and Performace, we understand the crucial role that nutrition and hydration play in promoting optimal health, managing inflammation, preventing injuries, and supporting injury recovery. As a chiropractor serving the Rochester community, we're committed to not only providing exceptional care but also empowering our patients with the knowledge they need to thrive.

Proper nutrition forms the foundation of overall wellness. The foods we eat have a direct impact on our body's inflammatory response, energy levels, and ability to heal. Incorporating a diet rich in whole foods of meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and tubers can help reduce inflammation, which is often a key contributor to pain and discomfort.

Whether you're seeking relief from chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or looking to enhance your athletic performance, prioritizing nutrition and hydration can significantly impact your overall well-being. As your trusted chiropractor in Rochester, MN, we integrate nutritional guidance into our treatment plans to support your journey toward optimal health.

Proper Hydration

Hydration is crucial for sports performance, brain and nervous system health, mental clarity, and cardiovascular health. We recommend drinking at least half of your body weight in fluid ounce of water daily. If you want to take it to the next level, try drinking 10 oz. of water per hour for the first 10 hours you are awake. Getting adequate electrolytes is also important. We love the LMNT salt packets as they don't contain any added sugars.

We are an offical wholesale partner for LMNT, a zero-sugar electrolyte drinkn mix that helps you replenish key electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, and potassium).

NutriDyn and Thorne Partners

Supplements are a $35 Billion dollar annual industry but are not FDA regulated, and many brands are not third-party tested. 

At Skare Spine & Performance, we partner with NutriDyn and Thorne who are supplement companies who undergo rigorous 3rd party testing to ensure their supplements are pure. Both companies also use more bioavailable ingredients, ensuring your body can absorb and use the nutrients. Thorne is the only company Mayo Clinic uses for research studies.

While you can't supplement your way from a poor diet, they can be an important addition to keeping you healthy and optimizing your health. Please reach out if you have any questions about your supplements and which ones may be right for you!

Systemic inflammation caused by our diet is one of the key links to most modern diseases.

We promote an anti-inflammatory diet to our patients at Skare Spine and Performance. Chronic inflammation can cause pain and brain fog and contributes to many diseases, such as heart disease and cancer.

We will educate you on a proper diet and walk you through steps to implement a plan to achieve your goals, whether that is weight loss, sports performance, or general health.

Paleo Diet for Chronic Inflammation

60% of the standard American diet comes from inflammatory flour, sugar, and oils, leading to chronic diseases like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and more. We advocate for the Paleo diet as it has been shown to reduce chronic inflammation markers and consists of eating whole, real foods of meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts/seeds, and tubers/roots. Getting better quality food in your diet can dramatically improve your health!

What is the Paleo Diet?

We recommend a Paleo diet to most patients who are looking for a change.

A Paleo diet focuses on whole, unprocessed foods that our ancestors would have eaten, such as meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. This way of eating can have several benefits for decreasing systemic inflammation, pain, and improving performance.

One way a Paleo diet can decrease systemic inflammation is by eliminating processed foods and refined sugars that can contribute to inflammation in the body. This type of diet also includes foods that are rich in anti-inflammatory compounds, such as omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and nuts, and antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables. By reducing inflammation, a Paleo diet can help alleviate pain and improve overall health.

In addition to reducing inflammation, a Paleo diet can also improve performance by providing the body with nutrient-dense foods that support optimal function. This type of diet is rich in protein, which is essential for building and repairing muscles, and healthy fats, which provide sustained energy and support cognitive function.

Moreover, a Paleo diet eliminates many common allergens, such as grains, dairy, and legumes, that can cause digestive issues and inflammation in some people. By removing these potential irritants, the gut can heal and function more efficiently, which can also support overall health and performance.

Overall, a Paleo diet can effectively decrease systemic inflammation, alleviate pain, and improve performance. By focusing on whole, unprocessed foods and eliminating potential irritants, this way of eating can provide the body with the nutrients it needs to function optimally. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare provider before making significant changes to your diet.
