Dr. Irene Gold's Journey Through Chiropractic

Dr. Irene Gold’s Journey Through Chiropractic This week’s special episode of The MaxLiving Podcast features guest host and MaxLiving Dr. Marc Surprenant, interviewing chiropractic legend Irene Gold, R.N, B.S., M.A., D.C. Today they discuss Dr. Irene Gold’s journey through chiropractic. Contrary to popular belief, Dr. Gold didn’t begin her professional career in chiropractic. Before attending chiropractic school, she spent 13 years as a registered nurse, public health nurse, and school nurse. Since then, Dr. Gold has been passionate about teaching the principle of chiropractic to the world, leading her to teach at Sherman College of Chiropractic, the Columbia Institute, & more. She reflects back on her chiropractic journey and tells the story of when she was invited to be in a debate with a well-known writer/pediatrician Dr. Robert Mendleson, a member of the CDC, and a chief hospital pediatrician. Regardless of whether or not Dr. Gold’s beliefs were the audience’s “popular opinion”, she stood her ground and stuck to the principles of chiropractic. She also spent time working with her husband Reggie in their chiropractic office. For every patient they saw, they made a conscious effort to educate them about subluxation and how removing it could help them function at their full potential.

10 Tips for Staying Healthy on Vacation

10 Tips for Staying Healthy on Vacation Do you feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? So frequently people go on vacation and eat unhealthy food, sleep poorly, and workout less, causing them to feel exhausted when they get back. In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, we’ll discuss 10 tips to stay healthy on vacation so you can come back feeling refreshed and re-energized when you get back home. #1. Plan your healthy food ahead of time If you know you’re going to be in a car or plane for a long time on the way to your destination, pack healthy snacks or map out healthy restaurants you want to stop at. The last thing you want to do is to be hungry on your drive and have your only option be fast food. #2. If there aren’t healthy food options near you, bring your own Go to the grocery store or bring a cooler with food already packed to make healthy eating easier. That way you have healthy meal options in case you can’t find any options near your vacation spot. #3. Stay hydrated After being in the sun all day, doing activities you aren’t normally doing, or drinking alcohol, you need to be intentional about drinking plenty of water. Dr. Ryan suggests drinking half your body weight in oz. #4. Be a good role model for your children Whether you realize it or not, your children mimic a lot of your behaviors. Be mindful of your actions so you can be the best version of yourself for your kids. #5. Be aware of people’s needs and desires If you’re traveling with another family/individual with food allergies for example, be accommodating. #6. Plan for the unexpected Traveling ...

What are your genetics? What lifestyle choices were made for you when you were younger? Are you vaccinated? All these factors play into the start of your health journey. For example, if you ate heavily processed foods growing up, your nutrition may be lacking compared to if you ate organic fruits/vegetables and pasture raised meats. Where are you going? What are your health goals? Do you want to be able to do outdoor activities with your grandkids? Do you want to still be able to play tennis in your 70’s? Health goals are great for motivation and allowing you to think about the bigger picture. If you’ve never thought about your health goals, now would be a great time to start thinking about them because the longer you wait, the harder they may be to achieve. Where are you now?

Chiropractic Care and Sleep

Chiropractic Care and Sleep

Chiropractic Care and Sleep Getting enough sleep is essential to maintaining a healthy body. According to the CDC, adults who get less than 7 hours of sleep are more likely to report 10 chronic health conditions than those who do get enough sleep. If you’re having trouble sleeping, be sure to listen to today’s new episode to hear about chiropractic care and sleep, what type of pillow to sleep on, how to know if your mattress is good or bad, & more! Dr. Ryan mentions that one of the most frequently mentioned benefits of getting regular chiropractic adjustments is improved sleep. They tell a story of a family with twin babies who before chiropractic care never slept more than 4 hours a night, but after getting adjusted slept a full 8 hours. Chiropractic adjustments help restore blood flow and remove interference in the nervous system, allowing the body to not only function better, but feel better so you can relax into a deeper sleep. Your body heals when you sleep - therefore it’s crucial you have a healthy sleeping environment to heal optimally. If you find yourself waking up sore or in pain pretty regularly, consider your mattress, pillow, or position you’re sleeping. Most people don’t know that the average mattress only lasts around 7-10 years, so you may want to invest in a new one if you’ve had it for longer. When it comes to pillows, you want a pillow that is spinal neutral - AKA one that supports the neck and lower back. Dr. Ryan and Ashley suggest sleeping with foam rolls under the neck and lower back to keep that spinal neutral position. If you know someone who struggles ...

How to Relieve Seasonal Allergies Naturally

How to Relieve Seasonal Allergies Naturally

How to Relieve Seasonal Allergies Naturally Did you know 50 million Americans suffer from allergies? With spring being in full swing, we’re here to help give you action steps for how to relieve seasonal allergies naturally. Dr. Ryan explains there are 5 signs of life known in chiropractic which are: Assimilation - the process of eating and turning food into living cells. Excretion - the process of getting rid of toxicity so you can keep the body cleansed. Adaptation - the ability for your body to deal with something and overcome it. Growth - the ability for living things to grow. Reproduction - the process of cells reproducing. This is extremely relevant to allergies because they occur as a result of your body not being able to adapt to its environment. For example, Dr. Ryan and Ashley went on a trip to Oklahoma where they came into contact with a new environment (ie: pollen) which was very different from the pollen in their home state of Ohio. As a result, their immune system response was weak and they were unable to adapt, causing allergy symptoms such as a runny nose, or watery eyes. In order to give the body what it needs to overcome allergies, we have to go back to the 5 signs of life. To get to the adaptation stage, you have to finish assimilation and excretion first, which means you have to be intentional about what you’re putting in your body (ie: healthy food) to ensure it can be supported in the best way possible for assimilation. It’s also important to minimize toxicity through excretion so nothing stands in the way of proper functioning. The last and most important key to adaptation is ...
