Episode 18 - The Importance of Gut Health with Dr. Phil Harris

The Importance of Gut Health with Dr. Phil Harris This week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast features naturopathic physician, Dr. Phil Harris, who talks with Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross about the importance of gut health. Did you know that the majority of diseases start in the gut? You may think that you don’t have gut problems because you don’t get stomach pain and have normal stool, but in reality, your gut is connected to a lot more than just that. Dr. Traci mentions that “research is finding more and more now that gut health is linked to autoimmune diseases, cognitive disorders, brain function, cancer, fatigue, learning disabilities, allergies, asthma, food sensitivities” and more! The digestive system and the gut are extremely important. The gut absorbs nutrients we take in, which allows our cells to function properly. But, if we don’t get enough nutrients, or if our gut has problems absorbing nutrients, it can cause a variety of health problems. Dr. Phil tells a story about a patient of his who had weight issues, headaches and low energy and recommended that she go on a high nutrient diet. Unfortunately though, this didn’t help her problems. After submitting a urine test to a lab, they found out that her gut was only absorbing less than 10% of the nutrients she was taking in. Dr. Phil put her on a cleanse to help reset her gut, and she finally started to see results. She started to lose weight, gain more energy, have less headaches, and her gut absorption increased to 40%. “The lining of your gut is often called the second brain” (Dr. Phil). It includes the esophagus, stomach, small & large intestines, ...

Episode 17 - All About Arthritis: How Chiropractic Can Help

All About Arthritis: How Chiropractic Can Help All About Arthritis! Most times when you hear someone has arthritis, you picture an older person in pain, not able to do what they love. In reality, though, that’s not how they have to live their life. Just because someone has arthritis, doesn’t mean they can’t be active or do things without being in pain. With the help of chiropractic care, they can live the life they’ve always wanted. In this week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross talk about the symptoms and causes of arthritis, as well as how to reach your full potential if you’ve been diagnosed. Arthritis is a term used to describe inflammation of the joints. People with arthritis usually suffer from joint aches and pains as a result of misalignment. When the misalignment isn’t corrected, it causes uneven wear and tear, leading to the deterioration of the joint. Dr. Nick says that in order “to know how to recover, treat, and live your best life, you have to know what’s causing your problem.” The typical answer people say for what causes their arthritis is “old age.” But, if the arthritis is in one knee and not the other, how could the pain be caused by old age if both knees are the same age? Individuals with arthritis typically get prescribed medication to mask their symptoms, but most end up staying on that medication for the rest of their lives. The key is realizing that the solution for supporting your health isn’t finding a temporary fix, but rather finding the cause of the problem. Dr. Nick explains how a lot of times people refer to their condition ...

Episode 16 - Life Without Limitations: Unlock Your Full Potential

Life Without Limitations: Unlock Your Full Potential So often we stop ourselves from putting our health first because we think it’ll take too much time, or cost too much money. Yet, when we face chronic illnesses due to a lifetime of poor health choices, we spend our life savings to restore the health we once took for granted. Why do we wait until our health diminishes to start making health a priority? Let’s take a look at your Life Without Limitations. In this week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross discuss how to live your life without limitations. “When you have true lasting health, you can have a great life,” says Dr. Nick. Dr. Nick talks about one of his patients that recently just lost her brother. 3 years ago, this patient decided to take responsibility for her health issues and join MaxLiving, and by doing so, she changed the path of her life for the better. Her brother on the other hand was dealing with the same health issues and didn’t do anything about it, causing his life to, unfortunately, follow a much different path. It’s important to realize that the decisions you make about your health affect what road your life will take. For example, you can take the allopathic road of using drugs or other remedies to cover up a symptom or take the MaxLiving path of realizing that “there is an innate intelligence within all of us that is striving towards health,” (Dr. Nick). It comes down to changing our internal environment in order to see results. Ultimately, if you want to get healthy, there’s a decision that has to be made. If ...

Episode 15 - Revisiting Vitalistic Pediatrics with Larry Palevsky

Revisiting Vitalistic Pediatrics with Larry Palevsky Episode 15 of The MaxLiving Podcast will be a repost of episode 13 with Dr. Larry Palevsky due to technical difficulties.  In this week’s special episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson is joined by NYS licensed Pediatrician, Dr. Larry Palevsky to talk about his approach to pediatrics. When your child has a health issue, it can be easy to go to the doctor, tell them about your child’s symptoms, and expect the doctor to give you medicine to treat it. But what you don’t realize is that not every child who experiences the same symptoms should be treated the same way. Each child is extremely different and needs to be examined and treated on an individual basis. Dr. Larry explains that “95% of our answers to what’s going on with the child should come from a good history and good physical.” This involves asking questions and looking at the child individually in order for the doctor to assess the body, mind, and spirit. It also allows the doctor to understand the origin of the issue in order to come up with a solution as to how to help the child. “The body has the innate capacity to heal,” is a concept that Dr. Larry learned years ago from a chiropractor, and over time, he started to understand that idea. He realized that if the nervous system had a good balance of being flexible and well-aligned, it could heal itself. Being that the nervous system is connected to all our organs, Dr. Larry started sending his pediatric patients to chiropractors in hopes of helping to treat them. Today, he still practices this, but he hasn’t stopped ...

Episode 14 - What Does It Take to Be a Chiropractor? with Dr. Ron Oberstein

What Does It Take to Be a Chiropractor? with Dr. Ron Oberstein Today in this special episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, host Dr. Nick sits down with leading Chiropractor and President of Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Rob Oberstein. Life Chiropractic College West is a private college in Hayward, California is known for its Doctor of Chiropractic degree program, and has been accredited since 1987 by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Chiropractic Education and by the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners. In addition to his service as President of Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Rob has decades of experience as a practicing Chiropractor and is seen as one of the leaders of Chiropractic in North America. In this episode. Dr. Ron shares what it takes to become a Chiropractor, what made him choose the path of Chiropractic, and the potential Chiropractic Care has to change healthcare for the better. When asked about what it takes to be a chiropractor, Dr. Ron says that first and foremost, one must have “the heart to serve.” He explains that Chiropractic is more than a career, and is in fact a calling that takes years of study and a dedication to providing health and wellness. What very few people know is that Chiropractors go through years of arduous study, learning many of the same subjects as medical doctors. What sets Chiropractors apart from medical doctors, then, is not what they learn, but how they learn. As Dr. Ron explains, “we learn it in a different way,” focusing on Salutogenesis, which is the focus on factors that support human health and well-being, rather than focusing on factors that cause disease (otherwise known as pathogenesis). As Dr. Ron ...
