Birkie fever, I'm a true believer

Birkie fever, I’m a true believer

For the past 365 days I’ve been training for North America’s largest cross country ski race the American Birkibeiner.  It starts at Telemark lodge in Cable and the 7 thousand or so who ski the Korte which is the half Birkie or the full which is 51km and finishes in downtown Hayward Wisconsin.  What makes this special for me is it is a celebration of all the hard training, the dedication to training when you didn’t feel like it, and it’s a time to meet up with old friends once again skiing the hardest marathon course in the world.

Fish oils are essential for great health.

Every day I have people ask me why they should take fish oil and is there’s a good product.  I could go into detail about the benefits but you’ll have to come to my 30 minute workshop at my clinic on monday night to get the details.  In short, most chronic diseases are due to to much stress and a poor lifestyle that create inflammation.  Inflammation is the terrible effect of eating poorly, and not moving like we were made to.  Omega 3 fish oils are anti-inflammatory and are called essential fatty acids because our brains,nervous sytems and all our cells need them to be healthy.  The problem is we have a 20:1 ratio of omega 6 faty acids to omega 3.  Ideally we’d like that to be 2:1.  Omega 6 you’ll find in any oils or meats that are grain fed. 

What’s the best kind?  Moxxor is the best.  It’s pricy but you get what you pay for.  Don”t buy the stuff at the supermarket or GNC since it’s cheap and probably will cause more harm than any good.  Most fish oils are oxidized(kind of like rusting out) by heat, sunlight and packaging, and are full of crap or watered down or have lead and other heavy metals in them which are toxic to your nervous system.  Only put good things in your mind and body and guess what comes back?  Do that over time and your health gets better and you can live to your fullest potential. 

Speaking of potential, if you are subluxated you can”t be at your best.  how do you know if you are?  You have to get checked, it’s as simple as that.  i’m plugging myself here but I don;t care who you see everyone should get their spine checked.   We check our teeth, we check every thing else but wait until our spine is a wreck which isn;t pro-active and you suffer needlessly.  I hear this on occasions, “once you got to go you always have to go to a Chiropractor”  If you don’t have any stress in your life then you probably don”t need to go and let me know where there isn”t any stress and I’ll join you.  I get adjusted weekly and reccomend that for those who are looking to be at their best and assist with the effects of chronic stressors in our life. 

OK, that’s it for this week.  3 weeks until the Birkie.  I’m getting fit and feel like I’m ready to race.  Staying healthy is the key when you physically train hard and have to live life also.  A lot of people get sick because htey overdue it with training so there is a fine line and I mean finne between getting sick or having a poor race becasue your body isn;t rested enough.

Have a great rest of the week, more snow for the weekend so get outside and enjoy it!!
