kale, broccoli, spinach, peas, potatoes, carrots, and avocados. Quercetin (a flavonoid found in onions, grapes, capers, and black and green tea) is believed to have antiviral properties. Vitamin D plays a key role in immune health and can be found in fatty fish, cremini mushrooms, and yogurt. Consume Essential Fatty Acids The benefits of essential fatty acids are almost endless: improved cardiovascular health, muscle tissue maintenance, mental and cognitive improvement, and reduced inflammation. Fish and seafood are generally the best sources of essential fatty acids, especially salmon, mackerel, albacore tuna, trout, sardines, and swordfish.

Patient Success Spotlight

I arrived for my first appointment barely able to walk. The ladies in reception were so sweet! Dr. Alex Vanderlinden is very knowledgeable and kind, and I felt very comfortable working with him. I felt like he cared about me as a real person with pain, rather than just a patient. There were parts of my body that I didn’t even know were in need of adjustments, and it made a huge difference in pain that I’ve dealt with for years! Physiotherapist Yolanda Pinedo is second to none! If you need help to manage your pain for good, Yolanda’s the best! I’m now in control of my pain, and back to living.” — T. B.
