Marvelous Mushrooms

Posted on Oct 7, 2018


At Lakewoods Chiropractic we love to share information on nutrition with people. The healthier a person eats, the better they’ll ultimately feel.

Mushrooms are a food that should not be ignored. Did you know that mushrooms have been actually used as medicine in some cultures for centuries? The ancient Egyptians called mushrooms “the plant of immortality.” Indeed, mushrooms are good and nutritious for you.

If you’ve heard of the term “superfood,” know this: mushrooms are a superfood. Edible mushrooms can be used to prevent and treat health conditions as well as improve overall health. Low in calories, mushrooms give people both fiber and protein. Plus, they’re loaded with vitamins B and D and other good nutrients like selenium, potassium and copper. Did you know they’re also loaded with more antioxidants than a lot of colorful fruits and veggies? No wonder mushrooms are considered a superfood!

Do you want to boost your immune system? Eat shiitake mushrooms daily. Want to reduce inflammation in your body? Eat common white button mushrooms. Want to treat obesity? Mushrooms alter your gut bacteria in a positive way, helping you fight fat! And eating mushrooms regularly can also help prevent respiratory infections.

If you’ve never really eaten mushrooms in your diet and you’re wondering “where do I start?” then here are some names to look for at the local grocery store: porcini, golden oyster, pioppino, lion’s mane, maitake, and the aforementioned shiitake. These mushrooms will give you lots of nutrients and antioxidants.

For those who want to try an experiment to lose weight, feel better, and bring your blood pressure/cholesterol down, try this: replace some of the meat you eat with mushrooms instead. Over the course of a couple months you’ll start to notice that you feel healthier.

At Lakewoods Chiropractic, we care about educating people with valuable, useful information in an effort to help them live healthier, happier lives. One of the main things you can do to change how you look and feel is to adjust your eating and drinking habits. Some simple steps, like choosing water instead of soda pop, and eating more mushrooms and less red meat, are ways you can not only take a couple pounds off, but also start to feel more alive. What we put into ourselves can either weigh us down or give us energy to take on each day. At Lakewoods, we want to see people’s lives transformed through improved nutrition and more.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
