Nutrition is the foundation of whole health. Energy, focus, vitality, longevity, strength, and repair are all based on the nutrients your body has available through diet and supplementation.
At Mind Body Spirit Wellness Center we offer dietary counseling and customized nutritional supplement recommendations to help you reach your health goals.
Diet is not as difficult as we make it out to be, and making the right food choices is easier than you think. When it comes to diet, there are (basically) only three elements you need to consider:
How many calories per day should you be eating?
We will help you determine the optimal number of daily calories you should eat to maximize your energy.
Where should your calories come from?
Calories come from protein, fat, and carbohydrate. Each individual has a ratio of protein:fat:carbohydrate that is ideal for them. We will help you find your "golden ratio".
What are the best food sources of your calories?
If two foods contain identical protein:fat:carbohydrate ratios is one of them better for you than the other? Possibly. It depends on the two foods and how they react with your blood type. Each blood type has certain "power foods" they should consume heavily, and "avoid" foods they should stay away from as much as possible.
Once we teach you these three super-easy but extremely important aspects of food science, you'll be ready to create your "Perfect Diet".
The only thing left to do, then, is to make sure you stay on-track with your total calories and calorie ratios. That's where food tracking comes in. Thanks to a handful of free apps that are readily available for your smart phone, diet tracking has never been easier than it is right now.
Diet Tracking With the
My Fitness Pal App
The free My Fitness Pal app for android or iPhone allows you to track your food in under a minute per day, and automatically calculates total calories and protein:fat:carb ratios. You can even enter exercise calories burned.
Nutritional Supplement Programs
Nutritional supplements are the best way to ensure your body is receiving the proper amounts of vitamins and minerals it needs for repair. They are a guaranteed way to keep you as healthy as possible so you can live your life the way you want to.
Our nutritional supplement recommendations are customized based on your unique physiology, health challenges, and blood type.

Mind Body Spirit was founded by Dr. Michael E. McGovern, DC, a 2006 graduate of the Palmer College of Chiropractic. "Dr. Mike" is a runner, cat dad, and chess geek.
Dr. Michael E. McGovern, DC
"Dr. Mike" has received extensive post-doctoral education in blood analysis, detoxification, digestion, hair analysis, hypothyroidism, natural hormone balancing, nutrition, probiotic therapy, saliva analysis, sleep restoration, and weight loss
"After a few days on my supplement program my energy was through the roof. I was up at 7 a.m. on a Saturday cleaning the windows in my house. My husband couldn't believe it!"
"The dietary changes Dr. Mike asked me to make were easier than I thought, and the supplements gave me more energy and better digestion than I've had in years."
"I had the most bizarre case of hives that I couldn't figure out. Dr. Mike tested me and found out which vitamins I needed to take and how much water I needed to drink. Within a day the hives, which had been covering my entire chest and stomach, disappeared."
"I struggled with pre-menopausal hot flashes and insomnia for years until Dr. Mike figured out what my body needed to come back into balance. I've been hot flash-free, and sleeping great, for over 2 years now. Thanks, Doc!"
"At age 46 I lost 8 lbs., increased my energy (while decreasing my coffee intake), eliminated my hot flashes, and resolved my digestive complaints working with Dr. Mike. I just followed his diet and supplement recommendations and it was pretty easy."
"I was trying to run marathons but my ligaments were breaking down. I couldn't recover from my workouts, and was getting to the point where I couldn't work out at all. Dr. Mike's supplement program helped my cartilage repair, and I now enjoy training and running marathons pain-free."
"I lost 15 lbs. and shed 8% body fat in less than 6 months combining Dr. Mike's diet and supplements with my weight training program. It's been 3 years and I'm still keeping it off. Thanks, Doc!"
"I suffered with insomnia and hot flashes for years before seeing Dr. Mike. I'm now 55, and since changing my diet and following Dr. Mike's supplement program I've lost over 10 lbs., sleep through the night almost every night, and have great energy. And my husband thinks I look great!"
"I started having the best energy, digestion, and mood I've had in years all within 2 weeks of starting to work with Dr. Mike. I'm a believer!"
"I'm 60 years old and I have one doctor. All of my friends my age have at least 3 or 4 doctors that they see every year. I must be doing something right because I don't get sick 2-3 times a year like I used to."
