Wait til You're My Age (The Advice You SHOULD Give)
“Wait til you’re my age….” I heard that statement multiple times throughout my 20’s and 30’s. The ending to that statement was usually “then you’ll have the problems I do” or some variation. I was told it’ll be all downhill with my health after I turn 40. Well, in a few days I turn 40… …and I’ve never been healthier! I know, I know. You’ve heard people say that before, but that doesn’t make it any less true for me. There are multiple reasons my health is better now than it was 15 years a...

LISTEN to Your Body (Why It's HORRIBLE Advice!!)

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 | Category: Function
You might have heard a doctor, therapist, trainer or even a friend say "listen to your body." The problem with that advice is the signals that you are getting from your body are usually WRONG! Or, those signals are MISSING! For example, when you eat a big meal, laced with sugar, carbs, or other processed foods, you feel stuffed. But then an hour later, you're body says "I'm starving" and you go to the cupboard. (i.e. a WRONG signal) Obviously, your body isn't "starving" or even "hungry."...

Be Different to Lose Pain

This week a patient commented, “I didn’t do anything different so I don’t know why I have this pain.” That’s a common statement I hear on a weekly basis. I thought to myself, and even said to the patient, “Maybe that’s WHY you have the pain.” This may also apply to you. If you’re doing the same thing over and over again, that’s a VERY VERY LARGE reason for pain! That means you’re stressing the ligaments, bones, muscles, and nerves over and over over again and not giving them a chance to hea...

Another Draw-Back to Antibiotics

Saturday, December 17, 2011 | Category: Function
We are not big fans of antibiotics here at Total Health.  We believe that antibiotics inhibit your bodies ability to create a natural immunity to illness and sicknesses.  We all can agree that antibiotics are given out fairly easily if you see your medical doctor.  They are considered a "quick fix", but do not actually fix anything!  You are 6 times more likely to get a recurring infection when you take an antibiotic for it.  (this is information from the CDC!)  So...

Part 3 of the Body Balance Program

Thursday, September 30, 2010 | Category: Fitness, Function
Hopefully you remember the first two parts of the Total Health Body Balance program. If not, here's a quick reminder. First is Structural Correction. This is the most common missing element of an exercise program. If your structure (i.e. posture) is poor, your performance will be poor. So you have to do specific corrective exercises to correct your posture as you engage in an exercise program. Second is Myofascial Release. In other words, massage. You need to roll out the tight knots in your m...

Massage is Exercise??

Thursday, September 16, 2010 | Category: Fitness, Function
One aspect of exercise that often gets swept under the rug is recovery and regeneration. Many trainers and coaches subscribe to the notion that if you aren't going all out on every workout then it's just not worth it. But to make gains, your body has to recover and regenerate. That's where myofascial release (i.e. massage) comes in. Check out this video to see what I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woDhWStSMXg   Doc

Excerpt from Get Healthy Now for Life

Monday, May 10, 2010 | Category: Function
When one of my patients tells me they didn't do anything to cause the pain that they have, I have them go to page 152 of my book.   Here is what page 152 says: “I don’t know what I did to make it hurt.” That’s a statement I hear almost every day. The following list consists of various physical, chemical, and emotional/mental stresses you potentially put onto your body, currently or in the past. Repeated abuse of these stressors causes your body to get out of balance, makin...
