4 … and what about our kids If you think we have a a problem now what will it be like when these kids grow upLast year was the first year in recorded history demonstrating that our children will not outlive usRecognize that our genetics CANNOT keep up with this type of weight gain
5 Homework for this weekThis you first homework assignment – spend some time at Walmart.
6 … a picture is worth 1000 words Amy’s story – a doctor that “gets it”.THENNOWDr. Amy Harvey
9 Sample ReportPatient’s health started as an “F” (disease care). In just 8 Weeks, moved to a “C”.50 years ago women’s waist sizes were 27” and men’s were 34”; today woman have muffin tops and men have BOBs (belly over belts)
10 THESE ARE NOT TYPICAL RESULTS And Guess What…..THESE ARE NOT TYPICAL RESULTSlate night infomericals that state “these aren’t typical results” eg ab blaster, thigh master, billy banks, tae bo, etc etc
12 Developing new habits Skill - How Knowledge - What NEW HABIT Definition of a habit by Steven CoveryUse example of golf; knowledge is reading a book on golf, skill is hiring a gold pro and going to golf range, but attitude – what’s prompt Tiger Woods to get up each day at 5am to hit 100 puts in a row that all make it, otherwise he starts all overHomework #2, write down 10 WHY’s as to why you want to be healthy, and make them BHAGs, big hairy audacious goals (from Jim Collin’s Good to Great)Skill - HowAttitude - Why
13 Insert your own family photo here Example of Steven’s healthcare teacher# of antibiotics these kids have been onWhat you don’t see in the picture
14 How are we aging???The idea is to die young as late as possible (Ashley Montagu)Do you make regular deposits in your “health” savings accountAnalogy – life should be like a candleAnalogy – Health Savings Account – need to remember regular deposits of health into your account to be able to withdrawal when you need toDr. Chesnut’s poignant words – “I beg you to get you patient’s healthy, before they get sick” while in tears because his best friend was sick and dieing in the hospital
15 Elements of 8WW™ Chiropractic Fitness Nutrition Meditation Massage PhysicalNervousSystemMental/EmotionalChemicalExample truine of health, cause of “dis-ease”.Top ten questions of 8ww program – do I have to receive chiropractic care!!!THE TRIUNE OF HEALTH
16 Time Each Week: 5% of your time You need 3.5 hours per week in the office30 – 60 minutes for massage2 one hour sessions with trainer (weights + cardio)2 chiropractic adjustments per week (15 minutes)2 appointments with Kristen Z, LCN60 min (3 separate) cardio sessions outside officeTime to shop, plan, and cook your meals10 day meditation (schedule 2 meditation classes)5 night to review & record in log & plan for next day
17 Chiropractic – Building a Strong Foundation You live your life through your Nervous SystemChiropractic removes interference to that Nervous SystemChiropractic = Healthy nerve system = healthy adapationHot – sweat; low blood sugar – get hungry
18 Understanding Chiropractic… Here’s The Secret It is critical that the messages from the brain travel up and down the spinal cord, through the spinal openings, and reach the body systems without interference.2nd most common vertebrae to degenerative is C5/6, biceps innervation, makes no sense to strengthen bicep in gym on your own, when subluxated
19 EXERCISE-------------> Why Exercise?No decline with age is as dramatic or potentially more significant than the decline in lean body mass30 minutes of exercises/day decreases your chances of Cancer by 50%J Nutr 127:990S-991S (1997)What the single biggest determinant of how fast we will age – FATAnalogy of bottom cap being a super pill that when given reduces risk of all cancers by 50%... Would you take the pill if your insurance covered it and it had only positive side affects.BODY FATLEAN MASSEXERCISE >
20 The Key to Cardio Training: aka HIIT Aerobic exercise is also referred to as “cardiovascular” exercise because it is such good conditioning for the heart and all the blood vessels throughout the body. Technically aerobic means “with oxygen.” When our heart rate is within 60 – 70% of our maximum heart rate, we are in an aerobic state and oxygen is being supplied to the muscles along with the fuels glucose and fat. A simple formula for figuring out your maximum heart rate is to subtract your age from If you are within about 60-70% of that heart rate, you are exercising within your target heart rate range. Examples of aerobic exercises are walking, hiking, swimming, cycling, rowing and running or jogging.Explanation of anaerobic exercise.Remember Vitamin I – intensity and intervalsTwo way to increase intensity – speed or resistance
21 Strength Training & Cardio The resistance in strength training is critical:Increases lean body massImproves basal metabolic rateKey Points to Remember:Train upper body and lower body on separate daysSchedule at least one day in between workoutsTwo Types of Muscle SorenessLactic Acid Buildup : during and post workoutDelayed Onset Muscle Soreness (1-2 days post workout)You will be responsible to do Three 30-minute cardio sessions each week on your own. If weight loss is a goal, perform these cardio sessions as soon as you wake up, on an empty stomach.DO NOT COME TO OUR OFFICE TO EXERCISE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.While cardio help combust fat, how fast you’ll combust fat depends on your muscle mass.Strength Training gives you “body dollars”, sure you can over indulge every once in awhile as long as you have ‘body dollars’ to pay for it.One pound of muscle burns 30 – 50 calories per day, one pound of fat burns 3 – 10 calories per day.Every decade of life from 20 on, women will lose 5 to 7 pounds of muscle
22 Heart Rate Monitors Highly recommended & sold at front desk Trainers rely on this to judge your progressWill give you a true BMR if you wear it for one solid dayUse it to challenge yourself to burn more calories each workout or increase your intensity.
23 Massage Massage is not a luxury, is it a necessity. Communicate with your massage therapistNot something you should just do once per year on a cruise.
26 NutritionFood provides energy for performing activities of daily livingSome people think of eating as something to do when you get hungry. Food is the way we provide our bodies with the fuel to conduct our activities. Within the food itself are the components that your body uses to generate energy, to grow and repair itself, and to fight invaders such as toxins. Think of food as something you can use to nourish your body, keep it healthy and vital.Ask someone if group “who has a really nice car.” “Do you mind sharing how much it was?” “How do you take care of it.” Now how much is the human body valued at. Do you care for it as well as you do your car?
27 Food is a Mixture Protein Fat Carbohydrate We don’t tend to think of what we eat as protein, carbohydrate and fat. We think in terms of food, but the body sees food in these terms. Most foods are a mixture of these macronutrients.Knowledge is power. You must know what you are eating.Yes there’s lots of info out there, high fat, low fat, low salt, Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers. Etc etc.Go through example of PBnJ sandwich, what is carb, what is fat, what is protein, and are they healthy.Carbohydrate
