Episode 32 - Stay True to Your Beliefs About Health

Stay True to Your Beliefs About Health The world as we know it is divided now more than ever, making it hard for individuals to make decisions about their health without being constantly questioned by others, or hearing opposing messages all around them. If you’re on the fence about how you should approach your health, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross suggest that in order to make a decision, you need to get curious and dig deep by doing your own research. In this week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, our hosts discuss how to stay true to your beliefs when making health decisions. The question everyone is wondering is if natural immunity or artificial immunity will protect you best from viruses. Whether you are interested in receiving artificial immunity or not, the reality is, natural immunity will always be there. Whether your natural immunity is strong enough to prevent you from getting sick though, comes down to how you take care of your body. Dr. Nick explains that MaxLiving doctors believe that you can enhance your natural immunity through the 5 Essentials. In order to achieve true health, you have to realize that “nutrition matters, toxicity is a problem, oxygen [and exercise] is crucial, a healthy mindset is vital, and a balanced nervous system is the foundation” to maintaining a healthy body. After doing your own research and understanding what you believe, the best thing you can do is find other like minded people who believe the same as you. By doing so, not only will you realize you’re not alone, but the thousands of people who are on the fence will realize that they are not alone either. “You have ...

Episode 31 - Empower Your Natural Immunity

Episode 31 - Empower Your Natural Immunity

As we head into the cold and flu season, people are constantly curious as to what they can do to boost their immune system function to prevent harmful viruses and infection. Today, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross give you tips for how to strengthen your immunity in order for you to stay healthy. This week’s episode is a more in depth version of episode 26 – Building Immunity Through Your Nervous System. Listen to episode 26 here: https://maxliving.com/podcast/episode-26-building-immunity-through-your-nervous-system/ The most important factor to building immunity is to look at what you’re doing on a daily basis. For example, if you’re eating foods which harm your body such as sugar, your immune system is going to suffer as a result. Since we don’t get all the nutrients we need from food, Dr. Nick mentions a few nutraceuticals that you can take to help prevent infection in your body: Vitamin D3 + Probiotic, Vitamin C, Zinc+, and IM Support. Studies have shown that low amounts of Vitamin D are correlated to increased risk of infection, therefore making it a necessity when it comes to building immunity. Dr. Nick recommends Vitamin D3 is taken with a probiotic to “help with absorption in the gut.” For more information on Vitamin D3 + Probiotics, click here: https://store.maxliving.com/products/vitamin-d3 Vitamin C is an antioxidant, improving the production of white blood cells while also reducing the duration of illness. Dr. Nick mentions to take Vitamin C alongside Quercetin, to assist in actively fighting infection.

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. Read about the importance of nutrition here: https://maxliving.com/five-essentials/nutrition/ “Oxygen & Exercise” doesn’t have to be as intimidating as it sounds. By ...

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

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.
