Practically every day in practice during the history-taking, a patient will report any one of a variety of symptoms associated with magnesium deficiency. Could one mineral in the proper dose and form be a simple fix for these common complaints?
Three patients walked into my office this week complaining of heartburn. This turns out to be a very common complaint when going through a patient’s medical history in a nutrition-based practice.

“Dietetic and nutrition services” means the integration and application of food science and nutrition to individuals and groups. A chiropractic physician may provide dietetic and nutrition services, which includes nutrition counseling, assessment, and therapy. A chiropractic physician may also provide a medically prescribed diet (a diet in which nutrient levels need to be monitored, altered, or both, for an individual whose health is impaired by disease, injury or surgery), for any individuals other than residents of nursing homes.
