Mold. When you think of mold, I am sure you instantly think of what grows on your fruits and vegetables if you don't eat them quick enough. If you think a little more, than you may have found some mold under the tiles of your bathroom from a small leak you had fixed, or somewhere else in the house where you did some remodeling.What we don't hear a whole lot about is the damage mold can do to our health. Breathing in mold spores can be very damaging to the body, and many times we don't even know we are breathing it in!
Many cultures have their own systems of energy that they correlate to the inner workings of the human body. In Chinese Medicine, these energy pathways are known as Meridians. Within the culture surrounding India, this is known as the Chakra System.The Chakras are known as a concentrated area of energy within the body. There are over 100 Chakra locations in the body, but there are 7 points that are the most common in the Chakra System.Dr. Steve Politis of Kineci Physical Therapy has been studying the Chakra System for many years, and has been incorporating it into his PT practice. He knows that there is much more to the body than just the physical component, therefore when he works with patients he is able to work with them on a deeper level.
Autoimmunity is where the body's own immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues within the body. This can result in many issues such as low thyroid, systemic pain in the muscles, and forms of arthritis.Usually those suffering from autoimmunity will have to take each day one day at a time. They could feel great today, and rundown tomorrow. This can make exercising a real challenge because you may not feel up for it.Julia Morichelli is a fitness trainer who also suffers from autoimmunity. She has been diagnosed with multiple autoimmune conditions, so she knows all too well how difficult exercising can be.
There are fitness studios, gyms, and performance centers for the exercise enthusiasts. And for those who are injured there are physical therapy clinics and chiropractic offices. It makes sense to separate out these specialties into their own spaces.But can you actually combine all of these areas of the health and wellness industry together? In physical therapy can the exercise someone needs to heal from an injury also be used as a way to increase their fitness level? And vice versa, can an exercise at the gym help with the rehab process, or even prevent an injury from occurring?Our guest Pat McCloskey answers these questions within this podcast episode. At his training studio they are combining fitness routines with the rehabilitation process.
If you look around you, you may notice that many things come in a triad. This is because registering a concept in a set of 3 is very easy for the brain to comprehend.This is why we celebrate Gold, Silver and Bronze for events, because if we had a fourth option, it would be more difficult to remember. This is also why many books are written in 3s, such as trilogies, or the 3 musketeers.This is why the power of the triad becomes so important in any kind of rehab protocol. If we focus on groups of three, the brain and the body, plus the spirit (see what I did there??) will be impacted in a much more powerful way.
We all know about the basic five senses: hearing, taste, touch, sight, and smell. You may have even heard of the term the "sixth sense". Typically the sixth sense is known as something that isn't very describable, something that relates to your intuition.But could there be something else that we could classify as a sixth sense?Within the body we have a system of receptors that are responsible for reacting to specific movements and positions. These are known as the proprioceptors, and our guest today believes these should be known as the sixth sense.
Are you suffering from chronic pain? Have you tried many different therapists and practitioners, but haven't had much luck with improving your overall pain?This is an unfortunate reality for many of those who suffer from chronic pain. You do not deserve to suffer through it, but I want you to know there is hope to get better, and not to give up.Like Pat Purcell and myself, there are many practitioners out there who are able to view the body as more than just the pain you are suffering. There are many factors that can contribute to chronic pain, such as stress, nutrition, compensatory movement patterns, and more. A great practitioner will take a look at all these areas to help you in your journey back to a pain-free life.
What is the Keto Diet
Friday, March 2, 2018 / Published in Increased Vitality, Nutrition
You may have heard about this "new" diet that is rapidly circulating around the globe called the Keto Diet. You may also know quite a few people who are on Keto, or currently trying the Keto Diet out. This is where the question "What is the Keto Diet" comes from and why we should dive into it.I put the word new in quotes because right now it seems revolutionary, however the Keto Diet was actually created back in the 1920s. It was used as a way to provide a different approach to treating Parkinson's and Epileptics that didn't require having to fast for extended periods of time.

Have you ever paid attention to the ingredients used in your skincare products? Do you know what clean skincare ingredients are? In the US, there are minimal regulations for the ingredients used within our skincare products, especially since Europe has over 10,000 ingredients they have banned that we still continue to use here.This can be a problem because our skin is an organ, and is absorbing what we place onto it. So if we are not using clean skincare ingredients, then we can be supplying our body with toxic chemicals without even knowing it!Using clean skincare products is extremely important because of the amount of toxic load our bodies are already facing on a daily basis. The reason we see so many skin issues is typically due to excessive stress to the internal organs, such as the liver, and so the body pushes out what it cannot handle through the skin. As talked about in this episode, healthy skin is an internal and external battle. 
Potassium Rich Foods and Potassium Benefits
Saturday, February 10, 2018 / Published in Heart, Increased Vitality, Liver, Nutrition
Potassium is an important mineral within the body that is typically known as one of the main electrolytes. The role of potassium is important for the function of all cells, tissues, and organs within the body. Even though potassium is extremely important for the body, most people do not get enough in their diets. Even with supplementation most people are way under the recommended daily limit.Let's take a look at the potassium benefits within the body before looking at the most potassium rich foods.
Welcome to 2018! Since this time of year everyone starts to set their health goals and everyone is talking about topics related to wellness, we are starting our first episode talking about 2 different health-related topics: Alzheimer's and the Keto diet.Alzheimer's is one of those interesting diseases that scientists have worked hard to study, but have made very little progress with finding treatment options. Most of the time when the diagnosis is made, the family is told that there isn't much hope, and eventually the disease will fully take over their mind.
When it comes to using herbal products to help balance the body from all the stressors and toxins we face on a daily basis, I am a huge fan. It is rare to find an herbal product that doesn't have a bunch of fillers, so when I caught wind of HANAH ONE, they had my attention.Even if you had no idea what every single herb did in this blend, you could easily recognize that there are no ingredients that don't come directly from the earth. This alone makes this type of product unique.
Have you ever suffered from an ankle sprain, and it felt like it was taking forever for it to recover? Most of the time when an ankle sprain occurs, the rehabilitation process doesn't actually address the best ways for recovery. We see a lot of ankles placed in a brace, then people still continue to do the activities they love.The problem with this type of rehab is that the foot and ankle are made to move, and by not properly addressing the ankle sprain, it starts to lose its mobility and stiffens up. I see a lot of people in my clinic who's ankle and foot don't function properly due to an ankle sprain that wasn't treated correctly.
When people come to my clinic to see me for their health issues, one of the questions I ask is what their support structure looks like within their family to support them on their health journey. I then ask if the family is prepared to make any changes necessary to the way they eat in order to better everyone's health, and I include the children.A lot of the time the response I get is "how would I ever get my kids to stop eating the sugar and the processed food? It tastes too good!"This is a very valid question, and one that not many people have a great response to. Children have always seemed to be invincible when it comes to dietary and health decisions, and there hasn't been a need to try and get children to understand what food can do to support, or break down the body.That is until recently.
