Episode 30 - Living the 5 Essentials® Lifestyle

Living the 5 Essentials® Lifestyle In this week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross talk about how to live your best life through the 5 Essentials. The first essential they mention is “Mindset,” which is key to achieving true health. If you want your health to change, you have to realize that what you were doing before wasn’t working. By making this mindset switch and committing to a new way of living, you’ll be on your way to making a positive change. Read more about mindset here: https://maxliving.com/five-essentials/mindset/ Next, “Minimizing Toxins” is one that people often overlook since they don’t realize just how much of an impact toxins play on their health. Whether it’s the drugs we take, products we use, or food we eat, toxins are extremely harmful. Dr. Nick reminds viewers that “what goes on the skin goes into the body,” meaning that personal care products such as makeup, antiperspirants, and fragrances all can cause harm to the body. Although completely eliminating toxins sounds like a better option than just minimizing your exposure, it’s utterly impossible to get away from them. Toxins surround us in everything we do, whether we know it or not, so it’s important to minimize exposure to the known elements and detoxing your body to get rid of it. Learn how to minimize toxins here: https://maxliving.com/five-essentials/minimize-toxins/ “Nutrition” is the next essential, which focuses on what Dr. Nick calls, “food by God.” Food by god eliminates sugar, and bad fats, while focusing on fruits and vegetables in order to raise glutathione levels.

Episode 29 - Making Health a Priority

Making Health a Priority We all strive to be healthy, but are we taking the necessary steps to achieve a healthy lifestyle? In this week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross discuss action steps you can take on a daily basis to boost your health. In order to accomplish true health, you have to make it your top priority. It isn’t going to be easy at all to do so, but over time you’ll learn from your mistakes and make the right choices to operate at your full potential. Dr. Traci explains the concept of the health continuum which goes from “health” to “life” to “death”. The closer you are to health the better, because if you aren’t healthy and just living, you’re one step closer to sickness and disease which leads to death. Our MaxLiving doctors believe in vitalism (or innate health), which is the idea that “your body is self-healing and self-regulating on its own” (Dr. Nick). In order to achieve health on the continuum, you have to understand that your lifestyle and choices you make cause interferences in the body which inhibit it’s natural ability to heal itself. Therefore, you need to become aware of what you are putting in your body because it becomes a part of you. Read more about innate health here: https://maxliving.com/healthy-articles/what-is-innate-health/ Specifically, what you feed your body is extremely important because “food is a habit that’s formed intentionally” (Dr. Nick). Dr. Nick says that if you choose to eat bad fats for example, they not only become a part of you, but also cause you to age prematurely, form inflammation, create oxidative stress, and more. ...

Episode 28 - Take Responsibility for Your Health Part 2

Take Responsibility for Your Health Part 2 This week’s episode is a continuation of last week’s episode about taking responsibility for your health. If you haven’t heard part 1, listen here: https://maxliving.com/podcast/episode-27-take-responsibility-for-your-health/ Why is it that when people get older, some get to live a healthy life and do whatever they want, while others struggle with health issues? Dr. Nick says that the reason their lives are so different is that they took a different path to take care of themselves. He explains that it's easy for people to take the easy way out and eat fast food, or sit on the couch, but it will make things harder for them in the long run. They’ll have health issues later in life because they didn’t put the effort in to take care of their health growing up. Meanwhile, if people take care of themselves by eating nutritious food, finding underlying causes of their health conditions, and putting the time in to fix these issues with chiropractic care, life will be easier and much more fulfilling as they get older. Dr. Traci explains that being a MaxLiving chiropractor is incredibly rewarding because she gets to help her patients live their best life through the 5 Essentials®. She emphasizes that the sooner you choose the harder path of taking responsibility for your health, the better your future will be. At our clinics, we make it easy to take control of your health. We look at the spine first by taking x-rays to analyze if there is damage done to the nerves and then take a surface EMG to see where the nervous system is being challenged. This will give a baseline assessment to find the root ...

Episode 27 - Take Responsibility for Your Health Part 1

Take Responsibility for Your Health Have you ever sat and pondered if your insurance company really cares about your health? In this week’s episode, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross dive deep into health insurance and question if it’s the right option for you and your family. Dr. Traci mentions that according to Medicare guidelines, they do not cover anything which will help prevent disease, promote health, or prolong the quality of life. Unfortunately, most health insurance companies follow these guidelines, which means a lot of people who have health insurance are missing out on the care that could potentially change their life for the better. Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci bring up that if they were running a health insurance company, they would cover nutrient and toxicity testing, the cost of good quality food, chiropractic care, whole house filtration systems, gym memberships, and more! Contrary to what Medicare offers, these benefits definitely help with disease prevention, promotion of health, and prolonged quality of life. The question is though, why do so many people have health insurance if they don’t get these benefits? Since health insurance is the norm, people who have it usually follow the guidelines and don’t ask questions. For example, chiropractic care is rarely covered by insurance, therefore people can be hesitant to receive chiropractic care as a result. What they don’t know is, our MaxLiving chiropractors make chiropractic care as affordable as possible in order to help families achieve their optimal health.

Episode 26 - Building Immunity Through Your Nervous System

Episode 26 - Building Immunity Through Your Nervous System

Building Immunity Through Your Nervous System A lot of people think that taking supplements will help boost their health regardless of what they eat, but that isn’t the case. The reality is that you can take supplements all you want, but they won’t fix an already unhealthy diet. In order to give your immunity the support it needs to function properly, you need to analyze the food that you eat. By getting your nutrients from food first, you can then add supplements where you need them in order to maximize your full potential. There are hundreds of different supplements on the market that range in ingredients, prices, etc., but the key to living a healthy lifestyle is to invest in your health now, so you won’t have to pay to make up for it later. Dr. Nick’s top 4 supplements he recommends are Vitamin D3 with a Probiotic, Vitamin C, Zinc+, and IM support. Buy them here: Vitamin D3 + Probiotic: https://store.maxliving.com/products/vitamin-d3?variant=17924774527043 Vitamin C: https://store.maxliving.com/products/vitamin-c-complete?variant=17924761944131 Zinc+: https://store.maxliving.com/products/zinc?variant=32013924991043 IM Support: https://store.maxliving.com/products/im-support Our nutraceuticals help aid your body by mitigating inflammation, adapting to viruses and bacteria, and so much more! By feeding your body the vitamins and minerals it needs, it will be able to function at its optimal potential! Stress on the other hand can also have detrimental effects on the immune system, causing individuals to become sick, have anxiety, and make them more susceptible to diseases. Dr. Nick says that in order to relieve some of your mental stress, it’s best to turn off the news and spend time focusing on yourself, your emotions, and how you can prepare for the day. Furthermore, physical stress on the spine and nervous system hinder your body’s ...

Episode 25 - Achieving True Health Comes from Within

Achieving True Health Comes from Within Have you ever realized that your body does the right thing at the right time? In this week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross talk about how achieving true health comes from within. You may wonder why different people have different reactions to viruses. Dr. Nick explains that this is because “your immune system is designed to react,” and “can get built up over time to get strong and healthy.” The fact of the matter is, what you do to your body matters. Our doctors believe that through the 5 Essentials® – Core Chiropractic, Nutrition, Mindset, Oxygen & Exercise, and Minimizing Toxins, you can give your body the support it needs to function at its full potential. It’s important to be aware that your everyday actions affect your body either positively or negatively. Dr. Traci says that one of the most harmful things we consume on an everyday basis without even realizing it is sugar. Sugar is not just in candy, cookies, or soda, but in grains such as rice and pasta as well. So many people eat grains multiple times a day but don’t use the glycogen stores for energy, causing them to gain weight. Learn about how sugar affects your immune system: https://maxliving.com/healthy-articles/how-sugar-affects-your-immune-system/ In order to stop this vicious cycle of gaining weight, try intermittent fasting. This is when you only eat for 8 hours a day and fast for the remaining 16 hours. The easiest way to do this is to skip breakfast and wait until lunch to start eating. Since your body is so used to doing the same things over and over again, intermittent fasting ...
