Nutritional Counseling in Athens PA


At Horn Family Chiropractic in Athens PA, our passion for good health extends far beyond the limits of spinal adjustments and pain elimination. Our doctors’ goal is to provide a simple, clear and comprehensive way to implement proper nutritional habits into your everyday life.

We work to proactively help our patients achieve their optimal level of health and are proud to offer a variety of nutritional products and counseling. Many of today's most common health conditions are rooted in simple nutrient deficiencies.

At Horn Family Chiropractic we believe that proper nutrition alongside our chiropractic care helps your body to heal itself naturally. Our intent is to help you develop simple healthy habits and a sustainable routine to improve and maintain your health throughout your lifetime.

Nutrition in Athens PA

Every one of us has individual nutritional needs.

But at the core of these nutritional needs is a diet that focuses on whole (real) foods and one that is anti-inflammatory in nature.

By changing dietary habits and incorporating a whole food eating plan along with specific and individualized nutritional support our patients see improvements in weight loss as well as:

  • Improving Immune Function
  • Hormone Balancing
  • Decrease Inflammation
  • Decreasing Or Eliminating Drug Therapy
  • Normalize Blood Pressure
  • Balancing Blood Sugar
  • Digestive Issues
  • Improving Allergies/Asthma
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Sport Performance
  • Balancing Adrenal Function
  • And So Much More!

There are several different aspects our doctors find especially important when it comes to nutrition. The health of your gut, the health of your brain and the connection between the two dramatically effects the way the body functions.

Gut Health

Your gut microbiome is an important foundation of your health. Good gut health occurs when you have a balance between the good and bad bacteria and yeast in your digestive system.
Your gut aids in the digestion of the foods you eat, absorbs nutrients, and use it to fuel and maintain your body.

Your gut is also where your body gets rid of metabolic waste and toxins. If you have an unhealthy gut, your body will struggle to rid itself of those toxins, creating many issues including but not limited to chronic fatigue, chronic illnesses and inflammation throughout the body.

Brain Health

Acute and chronic pain and inflammation in our bodies can result in mental fog, forgetfulness, and decreased cognitive function. Keys to improving and maintaining brain health include; exercise, adequate sleep, consuming an anti-inflammatory diet, and staying mentally active.

Another vital component of brain health is gut health. Your gut is known as your second brain. Your gut and brain are connected via the nervous system, neurotransmitters (chemicals produced in the brain and gut), chemicals produced in your gut that affect how your brain functions, and through the immune system.

Weight Loss

Inflammation throughout our body increases with weight gain, leading to insulin resistance and leptin resistance, making it easier to gain weight and much more difficult to lose weight. Additional weight gain can also lead to unnecessary stress on the joints, resulting in pain throughout the body.

Reducing inflammation is key to healthy weight loss.

Our doctors recommend avoiding processed foods and added sugars, eating more anti-inflammatory foods, exercising, getting enough sleep, decreasing stress levels and beginning a nutritional support plan.

Staying Healthy for a Lifetime.

There is a great deal of misinformation regarding nutrition. Our recommended nutritional plans are not like fad diets with sudden, unsustainable weight loss. Rather our goal is to educate you to make healthier decisions for you and your family to stay healthy for the rest of your life.

For the last 32 years, our doctors have been helping patients just like you, break free from their vicious cycle of recurring symptoms.
