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.

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
