……..Functional Chiropractic Nutrition

with Robert Silverman, Chiropractor, Clinical Nutritionist, International speaker, and Author of Amazon’s #1 bestseller, “Inside-Out Health”

Functional nutrition is particularly helpful for improving patient outcomes in diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue, neurodegeneration, bone health, cardiac health, and musculoskeletal wellbeing.

  • Use breakthrough Functional Nutrition therapies to resolve inflammation
  • Use nutritional strategies to manage musculoskeletal injuries
  • Connect gut/immune system to the brain for better management of concussions
