Fernandina Beach Mediterranean Diet Lowers Risk Of Cognitive Decline, Osteoporosis & Fracture Risk

At the mention of the Mediterranean, what comes to mind? Postcard-worthy images of beautiful blue ocean waters, sandy beaches, cloudless blue skies…and food? Yes, food! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic shares nutrition tips, and the Mediterranean diet is bantered around the nutrition world for its multiple health advantages as well it should in our chiropractic world, too. Fish, fruits, and veggies are healthy for all of us in our Fernandina Beach chiropractic family!


With the growing recognition that diet plays a beneficial role in health and prevention of disease issues like osteoporosis, bone loss, etc., guidelines are being created. A new paper with suggestions for guidelines endorsed a mediterranean-type diet with daily consumption of 2 to 3 dairy products to provide calcium and protein adequate enough to maintain normal calcium-phosphorous balance and bone metabolism all of which are related to a decreased risk of fracture. (1) In other studies, the Mediterranean diet has been described as reducing hip fracture risk. Another new paper explains that there is indication that a modified or alternative Mediterranean diet like the DASH (“Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension”) diet may also decrease hip fracture risk as well as risk of lumbar spine osteoporosis in women. (2) A study just published this past month pointed out that older adults who followed the Meditterranean Diet closely had lower chances of developing cognitive decline. (3) Better BMD, reduced osteoporosis odds, lower risk of cognitive decline and hip fracture may be inspiring to try and follow the Mediterranean diet, yes? Amelia Chiropractic Clinic finds these new studies interesting enough to share with our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients and their families.


What foods are in the mediterranean diet? Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, healthy fats (olive oil, nuts, seeds), yogurt, seafood/fish, a little red wine, and lots of water, un-sugared sparkling water, juices. It proposes avoiding sugars, refined grains, ultra-processed foods, etc. (4) These are all possible if not simple!
