Boom – time to shatter your beliefs

I (Body Centric) believe that we (humans) do not need to accept the limitations of pain, restrictions of movement and fear get in the way of us (humans) living the life we choose to live.

I (Body Centric) challenge current beliefs of ‘it’s just the way it is’, ‘its’ an age thing’ and ‘my Doctors says so’ and look for ways that we (humans) can fix our physical (body) and mental (how we see things, what we believe) selves, moving through and beyond our limitations.

 

 

I (Body Centric) unearth, learn and incorporate holistic approaches to wellness; Mobility (of joints, body, function), Strength (the new range of motion, joints, neuromuscular), Movement (incorporating mobility and strength to move and function without pain and restrictions) and Performance (do everything better; daily functions, sports, life). I (Body Centric) offer personal training, workplace wellness and small group classes to share this knowledge and give you a toolbox to fix yourself.

We (All Humans) have the ability to live without pain and limitations.  It doesn’t come in a pain med prescription or a doctor who is telling you that you have no other choice.  It isn’t as easy as swallowing a pill, it will take effort and commitment.  Be brave, ask questions keep seeking the answers – live the life you want to live!  Stand up and punch those old ways of thinking and giving up in the nose – BOOM!

No drugs (or Doctors) needed? (CrossFit ‘The Journal’)

Today I’m going to share a post from CrossFit ‘The Journal’: ‘Chronic disease; the rising tide’.  In a nutshell, it is written by an ER  Nurse (and owner of a CrossFit Affiliate).  He tells a story about a 21 year old female who arrives to the ER in critical – diabetic ketoacidosis.

I’d really like you to read the article and give our current medical situation some deep thought.  Is the ‘profession’ for the most part controlled by big pharma?  Have we gone in the wrong direction by prescribing medications over diet and exercise?  Where is all of this leading up?

It has been proven over and over (dare I say, over and over some more) again that correcting a diet and increasing exercise saves lives, reduces and often eliminates the dependency on drugs and leads to a longer, better lived life.  Big pharma in North America continues to grow beyond imaginable proportions; in 2014 Insulin alone had estimated revenues of $24 Billion and it is expected to reach $50 Billion by 2020 unless something major changes.

Is it also not interesting that Obesity and other ‘food’ related health issues also continue to grow, yet instead of treating these diseases with diet and exercise, drugs are prescribed.  Should we be questioning the ethics of our medical system or at the very least those of big pharma?

We’d be keen to hear your thoughts.  Please comment and share with us.
