Chiropractor Baltimore Provides Food Safety Tips

Chiropractic Alexandria VA Food Safety

Microorganisms are harmful for residents of Baltimore, as they cause many foodborne illnesses. Some of the bacteria include: E. Coli, Salmonella and Shigella. Other microorganisms could be: hepatitis A and E, some influenza viruses and parasites, like Giardia. These harmful organisms are able to produce toxins, which may range from gastrointestinal irritability to possible fatality. Food safety, including proper handling and preparation, is a vital role in reducing acquired foodborne illness.

At Pine Heights Integrative Health, our Baltimore MD chiropractor will examine the patient to determine the cause of their complaint. As a result, we will take a thorough history and discuss the importance of health and wellness.

A key aspect of food safety is to always thoroughly wash hands, using warm soapy water, before and after touching: raw meats/poultry, eggs, salads and sandwiches. In addition, to avoid cross-contamination, it is vital to isolate raw meats and raw eggs from other foods. Also, after raw foods have touched a surface, clean immediately, with hot soapy water, followed by bleaching it to disinfect and rid the remaining microbes.

Food in Baltimore should always be thoroughly cooked, this includes eggs and meats, to avoid consuming potentially harmful/ life-threatening microorganisms. This means that people are advised to avoid eating raw/runny/sunny-side-up eggs and meats ranging from rare to medium rare.

Another important factor in food safety, is remembering to always properly store foods and not leaving perishable foods unrefrigerated, for greater than 2 hours. Also, thaw frozen foods in the refrigerator, or even the microwave. It is unadvised for thawing frozen meats/ fish in the sink and or, on the counter.

By incorporating and following these food safety guidelines, the odds of developing gastric upset, or worse, is significantly decreased. Chiropractic care can be beneficial, in reducing the pain and discomfort, due to gastric irritation.

Our chiropractor at Pine Heights Integrative Health will conduct a thorough chiropractic exam to determine the cause of the problem. A proper chiropractic evaluation will permit us to provide specific adjustments for the areas to be treated. With the aim of maintaining your chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative exercises will be prescribed in order to strengthen the muscles and stabilize the other structures surrounding the adjusted areas. We will also discuss diet and nutrition and how it vitally contributes to overall health and wellness.
