Episode 12 - Who Owns Your Health (Part 2)

Who Owns Your Health (Part 2) In this all-new episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, hosts Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross continue the discussion of who owns your health, and answer just how you can start to take control of your personal health journey. If you have ever wondered if there is a singular thing that you can do to improve your health, this week’s podcast may be able to answer that for you, once and for all. When looking for the source of our health (and the source of our illness) Dr. Nick, Dr. Traci, and other skilled chiropractors like them, look to the spine. The spine houses the central nervous system, which Chiropractors believe may be the source of wellness and illness alike. When our nervous system is healthy, it means our body is communicating at 100%. When our body is communicating, that means it’s functioning. When our spines are unhealthy, it could mean an unhealthy nervous system, as a misaligned or degrading spine could place immense stress on the spinal cord and the nerves housed within it. Unfortunately, in a system where Chiropractic still exists on the fringes of health in the minds of some, this knowledge has gone unnoticed, and many have yet to take their health into their own hands and pursue the natural health possibilities of Chiropractic care. As Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci discuss, it is normal for them to see new patients that have suffered years and even decades of health concerns and frustrating symptoms to no avail. In this episode, Dr. Nick speaks to a particular client who came to him after 20 years of constant headaches. After years of prescriptions and medications ...

Episode 11 - Who Owns Your Health? (Part 1)

Who Owns Your Health? In this episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci discuss the question “who owns your health?” and how to take control of your health and wellness. There are so many different opinions and so much different contradictory advice out there about what health means, and as a result, it can be hard to define what you believe health means. Is health the lack of symptoms? Is it managing symptoms with medications? Or is it something different? In order to own your health, you have to get back to the very basics of what you believe health really means and make your choices based on that belief. As Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci discuss, it can be easy to wave away wellness with a medication or a “quick fix,” but is that really what health means? Do you want to look outside of yourself for the solutions to health concerns? Or do you want your body to have the ability to regulate those health issues and heal without artificial aid? Too often, our medications and treatments artificially change things like blood pressure, cholesterol, anxiety, joint pain, and dozens of other health concerns. But does artificially changing the symptom really change what is going wrong in the body? Dr. Traci and Dr. Nick argue in the name of real health over artificial health and warn against the surface-level perception of health that has become the standard for wellness today. As the developer of Chiropractic, B.J. Palmer said, “We get sick because of something inside going wrong! We get well because of something inside going right!” In this episode, our hosts dive deep into what has formed our current perception of ...

Episode 10 – All Things Heart Health (Part 3)

All Things Heart Health with Dr. Wolfson (Part 3) In this episode, hosts Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross are joined once again by Dr. Jack Wolfson to discuss how sleep, stress, and fear are related to heart health. These three factors are things that we all deal with each and every day—but do we really know how that stress is affecting your health? The importance of sleep is nothing new to this podcast, but it is, as Dr. Jack Wolfson says, something that is frequently forgotten or shoved aside by modern medical practice. Dr. Jack also stresses that sleep is just as important a factor as diet, exercise, toxin exposure, and other major aspects of health. In fact, people who fail to get healthy amounts of sleep may be at higher risk of heart attack, cancer, high cholesterol, and early mortality. In this day and age, we are always “go, go, go” as Dr. Jack says, trying to multitask and keep up with our hectic daily schedules, and as a result, sleep goes by the wayside. One of the biggest issues? Using artificial light sources to interrupt our natural (asleep with sundown and awake with sunup) schedules. Historically, our ancestors followed the path of the sun to distinguish their sleep and waking patterns, and our bodies expect us to do the same! And yet, we use artificial lights to stay up later and wake up earlier. And why are we doing this? As a direct result of the culture of “mental taxation,” we are expected to prioritize careers and other projects and expectations over our own wellbeing. As Dr. Traci says, this has grown to the point where it is affecting our ...

Episode 9 – All Things Heart Health (Part 2)

All Things Heart Health with Dr. Jack Wolfson (Part 2) In this episode, learn about supplementation and all the natural nutraceuticals that can help you support your heart health. As Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci have addressed before, it has become incredibly difficult to get the nutrients our bodies need from our diets alone. With overfarming, processed foods, toxins, and other factors interrupting the nutritional value of food, far too many of us are left with deficiencies in one or more essential nutrients. With the help of natural supplementation, we can supplement our natural health practices. Dr. Jack recommends that everyone should be on several basic nutraceuticals, including a high-quality multivitamin, but in addition, he recommends finding out every person’s individual nutrient needs and choosing specific nutritional supplementation based on those needs. Some people may need additional electrolytes while others might need more vitamin D. To find out what you need, there are a number of tests that you can take, such as the ones that many MaxLiving clinics offer! Find a clinic near you and discuss opportunities for testing your nutritional needs. According to Dr. Jack, if you are suffering from heart health concerns, magnesium, nitric oxide, and/or vitamin K may be possible underlying factors. When testing for heart health concern causes, Dr. Jack frequently tests for deficiencies in these three areas, and recommends natural supplements for these three vitamins, which have been shown to lower blood pressure, increase blood flow, aid in cholesterol levels, and more! In this episode, find out about natural alternatives to many of the treatments offered to aid in heart health, from supplementation to Chiropractic care! Learn why these doctors say “test not ...

Episode 8 - All Things Heart Health (Part 1)

All Things Heart Health with Dr. Jack Wolfson (Part 1) Holistic cardiologist Dr. Jack Wolfson guest hosts alongside Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross in this episode of The MaxLiving Podcast about all things heart health. Dr. Jack Wolfson completed 10 years of traditional medical training before finding his calling in natural health. While working in Arizona, he met a Doctor of Chiropractic that opened his eyes to the possibility of becoming a “Doctor of Cause.” Dr. Jack Wolfson realized that health is about more than treatment in a hospital, it is about living a healthy lifestyle, which is what he speaks to in this heart-health-focused episode of The MaxLiving Podcast. One of the things that Dr. Jack prescribes to his patients that breaks the norm of medical cardiological treatments is Chiropractic treatment. When Dr. Jack receives a new patient with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or other heart health risks, he sends them to receive regular Chiropractic treatment, which studies show can directly affect blood pressure and even overall heart health. Though this may seem unconventional to some, the reality is that Chiropractic may be able to help regulate health throughout the body in a natural, effective manner. When it comes to different kinds of doctors and different kinds of treatment, Dr. Jack believes in a system of practice where Chiropractic care becomes a ‘gateway’ to specialized care. In other words, Chiropractic offers the basic essentials of care that everyone needs to support their health in the long term, naturally. In this episode, learn about the things in your environment and lifestyle that may lead to health concerns. Toxins, poor diets, poor sleep, and a lack of exercise can all have negative ...

Episode 7 – All Things Sleep (Part 2)

Set Yourself Up for a Great Night’s Sleep In this continuation of our new series: All Things Sleep, we discuss what to do today to get great sleep. How do we get amazing sleep? It may be easier than you may think with these 6 easy steps. 1. Set the right temperature The first and simplest step you can take is to adjust the temperature in your home when you sleep. Research shows that the ideal temperature for sleep is somewhere between 60 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit. 2. Get in the mood for sleep Second, set the mood. This means shutting down devices, dim the lights, and let your body recognize that it’s time to sleep. Our bodies are programmed to rise and sleep with the sun, which means lights can cause our melatonin levels to drop. Melatonin is a natural hormone that regulates our sleep, and the more you produce, the healthier your sleep. You can help tell your body that it should produce melatonin by turning off lights and keeping your room dark during your sleep hours. This means lowering the blinds, turning off the TV and keeping your phone away from your bed. To prepare for a good night’s sleep, try doing yoga or reading a book to ease into sleep. 3 Cut out the late-night snacking Next up: avoid late-night snacking! Too often, our evening snacks include sugary, carb-filled snacks. Ideally, when you “fast” between dinner and breakfast, you allow your body to access and burn fat while you sleep, which helps regulate hormones and optimize weight. When you break that fast with a snack after dinner, it disrupts your body’s natural evening cycle and can interfere with your REM cycles ...
