Move Well: Create Your Workout Wherever You Are

MOVE WELL exercise physical fit chiropractic wellness healthy heart manifest health increase energy increase balance increase metabolism increase longevity abundant health

Do you ever think about feeling better and more specifically feeling more fit? What are you actively doing to MANIFEST HEALTH? Just know that you don’t have to start working out for hours multiple times each week to get results. Finding a consistent way to move your body is far more important than how much your exercise.

Moving Well everyday for at least 30 minutes is a great natural remedy for increasing your fitness level and increasing your wellness in a very short time. How many different ways can you possibly move?

Keep your creative juices flowing when it comes to moving your body. Make it interesting, match it to your current fitness level and most importantly HAVE FUN! Always know that you can move anywhere, anytime and in anyway you possibly can.

So how can you create your workout wherever you are? These words can certainly lead us in many directions. Today I am focusing on HIKING IN THE PHOENIX AREA.

When I lived in Seattle I would have to drive at least 30 minutes to get to the hiking that interested me. Here in the Greater Phoenix Area there’s a convenient area called Thunderbird Conservation Park (59th Avenue exit off of Highway 101 in Glendale, AZ).

Compared to other hikes I’ve been on it’s fairly easy, but there are many ways you can increase the challenge by being creative. The best part about Thunderbird Conservation Park is how many different types of workouts can be created at this one location.

 

MOVE WELL: Creative hiking for the Phoenix peeps

At the Thunderbird Conservation Park you have many choices. It is dog friendly (on a leash) and a great place for the entire family. You can hike to the top and back down again in about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Here are SOME possible workouts you can create there:

  • South end has an easy flat place to walk/hike
  • Walk to the top & back down at your pace
  • Run to the top & back down at your pace
  • Create a run/walk that matches your current fitness level
  • Ride your mountain bike up to the top & back
  • Improve your balance/coordination on the uneven rocks
  • Place to sprint at the bottom of the mountain
  • Steps that you can run up & down
  • The steps are great for groups doing exercises together
  • Concrete picnic tables which are great for stretching legs
  • Tables are perfect height for inclined push ups


MOVE WELL: Workout Tips for your best hike

Hydrate before, during & after your workout

  • Carry water in a day pack
  • Wear sturdy hiking shoes
  • Wear a hat to protect your hair/scalp
  • Cover your skin up or use sun block in Arizona

No matter what your workout choice is the most important piece is BEING CONSISTENT. Normal DNA is created with a minimum of 30 minutes of body movement each day. It’s amazing how fast you will MANIFEST HEALTH. Your FEEL GOOD FEELINGS from your efforts will show up in a very short time with consistency.

You may start with neck & shoulder pain, hip pain, sciatic nerve pain,
foot pain symptoms, ankle pain, arm muscle pain or any other chronic pain…

Reduce allergy symptoms

One medical understanding of the diagnosis ‘allergies’ is the reaction of the body to seasonal pollens which can result in sinusitis, watery eyes, sneezing, difficulty breathing and other allergy symptoms. In recent years, there has been a sudden increase of suffers of allergy symptoms due to pollens. The ‘warming’ climate has extended the growing season for pollen-bearing plants to thrive. If you have a tendency to experience seasonal allergies they are most likely getting worse. Your standard seasonal allergy care has been antihistamine pills, nasal sprays and decongestants giving minimal results at best.

Other types of allergy symptoms are also increasing: food allergies, animal allergies, chemical allergies and environmental allergies.

Food allergies on the rise

Food sensitivities can cause mild to severe allergic reactions: bloating, constipation, indigestion, itching, skin rashes and headaches. Unexpected food allergy reactions can include fatigue symptoms, body pain and personality changes.

Severe allergic reactions can cause life threatening anaphylactic shock. Anaphylaxis happens quickly after the exposure and involves the whole body. One symptom can be excessive swelling in the throat that shuts down the ability to breath. Those with anaphylactic shock have to travel with an EpiPen® (epinephrine) in case of an emergency.

Medications give temporary relief at best

Most allergy symptom sufferers are told they have to live with their condition with only temporary relief with medications. After several allergy tests you might be getting regular shots to keep your allergy symptoms under control at best. You also may be asked to eliminate certain foods for your food allergies and/or remove all pets responsible for ‘allergic’ reactions.

One person can suffer horribly with horribly with allergy symptoms while another does not. The most important body system responsible for the severity of your allergy symptoms is your immune system.

 

 

You may start with headaches, sinus pain, neck & shoulder pain
or any other chronic allergy symptoms…

Wellness Tips: Increase Fish Chicken Egg Protein

1-3 beef pork protein max weight loss nutrition weight loss journal weight loss for women Dr Debbie Thompson

When balancing your eating plan with a variety of proteins minimize your beef and pork. Eat more eggs, chicken, turkey, fish, buffalo and beans/legumes for your protein choices throughout the week.

The nutrient content of proteins are greatly affected by grass fed vs grain fed. Whether you are eating beef, chicken, eggs or other proteins, protein from free range and free grazing animals is best for your health. Compared to commercial products grass fed has lower fat. Grass fed meats have more good fats and less bad fats. They are also found to be lower in calories while richer in antioxidants: vitamins E (4X higher), beta-carotene and vitamin C. Grass fed proteins are free of hormones, antibiotics and other drugs.

Eating moderate amounts of grass-fed meat for only 4 weeks will give you healthier levels of essential fats, according to a 2011 study in the British Journal of Nutrition. SOURCE: EatWild.com

When eating beef/pork choose high quality meats

Only eat quality beef/pork that you know how the animals were treated. When animals are abused or treated poorly those experiences are laced into the meats. Enjoy your beef and pork servings up to 3 times each week. Meats found in specialty meat shops are always going to be higher quality than super market. With the help of the internet and local grass fed ranches you can order large quantifies of all types of proteins and store them in your freezer until you are ready to indulge.

GOAL: My New Chiropractic Office

Horses Have AMAZING Healing Energy!

Glendale AZ Chiropractor 85308 equine chiropractic horse chiropractic dog cat chiropractic headaches neck shoulder pain sciatic pain foot pain symptomsI’ve been in a chiropractic clinical setting since 1993. As a small child I’ve always had a beautiful sweet connection with horses and all animals.

My biggest dream during chiropractic college was to work on horses full-time. I’ve completed 1000’s of equine chiropractic adjustments, but this video inspires me to go to a whole new level of healing with the help of horses.

One of our animals’ purposes with us is to be there for us for healing our hearts, our minds and our world. The healing you can experiences in the energy of a horse is like no other.

In 1994, I named my Seattle chiropractic practice ‘Free Spirit Chiropractic’. It was named after the feeling I experienced riding my horse as a child. I wanted that feeling of freedom to be experienced by each and every one of my patients.

In the year 2000, I announced to the Universe that I NOW adjust horses. It’s been a remarkable journey since. Horses have taught me SO MUCH about chiropractic and what is truly possible by tapping into that beautiful Life Force we were born with.

This video exemplified all of the miraculous experiences I have had with horses.

Stop Water Dehydration Issues & Multiple Symptoms TODAY!

Body Reset Tip#2 – DRINK ADEQUATE AMOUNT OF WATER

wellness core wellness lifestyle weight loss over 50 Dr Debbie Thompson

Water is a major component of the human body. Water is used in EVERY chemical reaction in your body. In other words, you have trillions of cells in your body that are going through cellular chemical reactions all day long. Water is critical to complete those chemical reactions. Your body is composed of 65-85 percent water (depending on body size).

How much water should I drink?

Drink 1/2 your current body weight in ounces to maintain good health. Example: 180 pound person = 90 ounces of water. Increase your water intake with working in the heat and increased physical activities.

Can I drink too much water?

Here is a word of caution. If your body is not used to drinking water, start adding water slowly until you reach your adequate amount. Haven’t been drinking any water? Start with 8 ounces/day for 3 days. On day 4 add another 8 ounce glass of water. Keep adding slowly until you reach your body’s requirements.

How do I know that water is that important?

My best answer for this question is based on the book, “Your Body’s Many Cries For Water” by F. Batmanghelidj MD. He found that dehydration was the primary cause of pain and dysfunction in the human body. His astounding basic breakthrough was made while he was confined to a Tehran prison, this being a unique circumstance in itself.

Water is a better medication than anything the drug industry has to offer. F. Batmanghelidj MD

During Dr. Batmanghelidj’s imprisonment with 3000 others, he was called upon multiple times to help someone in need of medical attention. He had no access to drugs or medications. Dr. Batmanghelidj did not have access to any other medical resources. Each time someone had a physical complaint the only thing he had to give them was water. Just some of the conditions he worked with were: body pains, back pain, muscle spasms, natural joint pain relief, migraine headaches, asthma, allergies, hypertension, excess body weight and emotional conditions like depression. He speaks about “back problems” and how important he now see water to re-hydrate the discs between each vertebrae of the body. The discs in the spine support 80% of your body weight and they consist of 80% water. Multiple back pains disappeared after administering water as treatment.

Medications are palliatives. They are not designed to cure the degenerative diseases of the human body. F. Batmanghelidj MD

So is water important for your Wellness Lifestyle? I’m sure you know the answer quite clearly now.

Can I drink coffee or tea instead of water?

Dr. Andrew Weil’s short answer to this is “No”. The reason why is that coffees and teas act as diurectics. In other words they cause your body to excrete more water than normal.

“To get 2 cups of water from coffee or tea you have to to drink 3 cups of the coffee or tea. Dr. Andrew Weil

That create an unreasonable amount of coffees or teas by the end of your day. BEST CHOICE: Drink pure filtered unadulterated water to meet you water requirements.

What about flavored colored water?

Flavored water has became a popular item on the market with increased water awareness/intake. Each of these companies have the right ideas. Here are the markets they are speaking to:

People who do not like water: The more pure unadulterated water you drink that more you will crave it. An easy fix is a squeeze of lime or lemon juice with a few drops of Stevia.

People who think that it’s cooler to have ‘Kool-Aid’ looking water: Okay, I can’t argue with you on this one. I like colors and fun things also. Be sure to check your fun colored water to make sure it’s in your best interest.

People who know most filtered water doesn’t work well in the body: When water is stripped of all minerals and nutrients it loses its capacity to cross the cell membrane effectively. You can drink this kind of water all day and still be dehydrated. All of your water will hangout around the cells, but not get into where the cellular functions need water. SOLUTION? Use Cell Power, drops a few grains of Celtic Sea Salt into your water or use mineral drops.

I like drinking water, but I was truly excited to hear about the new colored waters. When I started to do my personal research I was disappointed in what I found. Things to pay attention to when purchasing colored water:

  1. No artificial colors or dyes
  2. No artificial flavorings
  3. Check for heavy metals (i.e. blue lake = aluminum)
  4. Are you really getting/absorbing the vitamins? Questionable.
  5. Check calorie level

The way that vitaminwater is marketed and positioned it’s made to look more healthful than other sugary beverages, but it’s not – it’s still just a soft drink.It has this aura of healthfulness that is not deserved. Adding vitamins and minerals to junk food doesn’t make it healthy. Margo G. Wootan, Director of Nutrition Policy at the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

Rather than buy ‘expensive colored water’ create your own at home. Know and trust what you are drinking.

ONE BETTER CHOICE with the same idea: Melaleuca’s “Sustain” – Performance hydration drink that contains electrolytes. Flavors: Raspberry Lemonade, Lemon Blast, Ruby Red Grapefruit (my favorite!) 30 calories with no artificial ingredients/colors/dyes

Other ways water supports your wellness

The other ways water plays a critical role is in the following: body detox, energy levels, mental clarity, circulation, metabolism, body temperature, aids weight loss, brain function, joint function, kidney function, mood improvements and digestion just to name a few.
