In the fitness world, carb cycling is very popular for weight loss and changing one’s physique. And as it grows in popularity, I often get questions from my clients about it. When enough people ask about it, I know that’s it time to research it more. But my research isn’t about doing the research and applying theory, it’s about BEING the research.
As more states open up for businesses with a resultant increase in consumers into the public, the news is instantly going to jump on any increase in rates of COVID. Fear sells. How do you decide if you should stay at home or head into the world? You ask questions.
Lots of memes are going around social media platforms that warn of the 2nd wave of COVID-19 in the fall. They are often captioned with a reference to the Spanish Flu of 1918-1919. So let’s take a look why I think this will happen under current circumstances and how it can be mitigated.
Why isn’t your chronic pain being resolved with chiropractic, PT, acupuncture, injections, or even stem cells?
It’s probably because where you feel your pain is not the cause of your pain. Let me explain.
My desire of having life return to normal isn’t because of economic ones but because of immunity ones, which will actually save lives. If we are going to prevent the recurrence of this again, we need healthy people exposed. You can’t create immunity without exposure.
I think functional medicine principles can help tremendously in the Corona crisis, not just from a personal health benefit but a policy assessment benefit. The biggest thing functional medicine has taught me is to ask better questions. So here is a question that has been running through my head since the media has created mass panic with the word PANDEMIC.
The best advice I have ever been given is the extremely vague advice ‘be comfortable with uncertainty.’ So how do I create comfort when there is chaos? I tap into the creative side of the brain.
If you’re waiting for the end of a stressful season to feel better, I’m here to give it to you straight. You probably won’t. Here’s why.
The greatest root cause of your health failures is that you are trying to change behavior. The reality is that behavior change can never change unless there is BELIEF change first.
How do we change beliefs? We have to be open to asking questions. And I want to share the 2 most important questions I ever learned in creating health for myself, my family, and clients.
The thing nobody is talking about in regards to The Game Changers movie.
It’s never too late (2019) or too early (2020) to start making lifestyle changes to dominate your energy, function, and vitality. Join me as I release the 12 Days of little, sometimes-not-so-intentional ways that I keep my health goals on track.
Instead of looking at fatigue and digestive issues as separate problems, let’s dive into the very close connection between the two so you can kill 2 birds with one stone.
The person that chases pain is always lost. The person that fights fatigue is always tired. Instead of looking at these symptoms as separate and stupid, recognize them as intelligent and support them instead of suppressing them.
You want more energy but you’re confused on where to start and what to do next. Use a sequencing of systems to boost energy levels for the long term instead of just propping your eye lids open with more stimulants.
It’s not uncommon for people to come to the clinic experiencing fatigue but also suspecting a hormone issue at the root. But the hormone at the root is more likely insulin, not estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone.
You still suffer from fatigue even though you have ‘normalized’ your TSH? Let’s look at what is potentially being missed in your journey for more energy.
Stem cell therapy is really sexy to those that have suffered with poor health and chronic pain for a long time. You can have fresh, brand new cells with no Read More
It’s hard for me to read, write, or hear the word sabotage and NOT immediately associate it with The Beastie Boys. And just like the epic song starts out, “I can’t stand it, I know you planned it…’ can be applied to so many’s health journey. You may not feel you planned it but by making decisions or not making decisions, you have planned for that outcome.
With that said, here are 3 ways you sabotage your health journey and how to break it.
It’s rare that I lose sleep over something I’m thinking about. But that was the case last night. What was running through my head were countless conversations with parents about their child’s health and the lies that we as parents tell ourselves to justify the choices we make with our kid’s health.
If we do one of those word associations where I say ‘healthcare,’ I would venture most of you would come up with the associative word, ‘expensive.’ You may be right or you may be wrong.
