Do this, not that.

Fall is officially here.  I love those early fall mornings when you wake up and can see the frost on the roof and see it on the ground.

It was a great weekend to get out and about with this great weather.  I did most of the 25 k trail run through Rock Creek saturday morning.  Boy, was that a challenge.  Those hills are brutal.  That one will really get the fitness level up there so I’ll be ready for snow which will be early this year according to the weather reports.

I’ve been studying functional medcine for the past 5 years and see a lot of people who have auto-immune issues like hashimoto’s thyroiditis, type 1.5 diabetes, MS, raynauds, RA, psoriasis, and many others to name just a few.  These are conditions where the immune system is over excited and out of balance and then it starts attacking a certain organ or system.

A lot of these conditions are caused by our lifestyle.  Poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and chronic stress can really aggravate  these conditions especially if you have a high stress in your life.

The average western lifestyle  of poor nutrition, which is full of inflammatory foods like wheat, potatoes, (these foods hard to digest and get to much small intestine overgrowth of yeast and leads to more auto-immunty).  Dairy, soy, and yeast are pro-inflamamtory foods also.

Thus it’s really important to clean your diet up.  Just knocking out gluten and dairy can really make you feel a lot better.  Give it a shot.  It’s not that hard.  Your joints will feel better, you’ll probably lose some weight, and your energy will improve.

The problem is we get trapped into a certain way of  eating and living and we don’t know how to get out of it.

It’s much harder to start from scratch with diet and lifestlye but you have to start somewhere.  Just taking the steps now versus waiting is really important.  Get the shoes on tie them up and get moving.  Get a protein based breakfast and eat periodically throughout the day.

Get sleep at night.  One of the biggest things I work with young athletes on is their diet and their sleep habits.  You have to get sleep in order to heal and help your immune system calm down and start getting a wellness approached lifetyle versus diseased state and building more disease in your life.

We all could use some detoxification  becasue to  their are so many bad chemicals we are exposed to.  How about we address creating healthier enviroments for our body?.  The good air we breathe, stay out of polluted areas.  That’s one of the reasons I love living up here.  I don’t especially care to drive  a lot.  I don’t like traffic,

Did you know 20% of all food americans consume is fast food.  Do you think that’s good beef?

Everything is GMO food which is a real problem.  This is brutal on your immune system.

Want less cancer, want less heart disease, want less disease?  Then start eating, moving, and thinking better.  I try my hardest to help inspire you and your loved ones to live a better lifestyle and keep your nervous system functioning optimally since it controls everything.

It’s possible.  But it starts with you.  You have to meet me halfway if you want to be healthier.

Jump in and get going on a new you.  Let’s finish off 2014 with a bang and never look back!!

  • 25th anniversary.

    25 years ago yesterday I graduated from Chiropractic school. I can't believe how fast that went.
