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 ...

Episode 24 – Kids and Chiropractic Part 2

Kids and Chiropractic Part 2 This week’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast is part 2 of last week’s episode relating to kids and chiropractic care. If you missed part 1, click here: https://maxliving.com/podcast/episode-23-kids-chiropractic-part-1/ Curious to know how chiropractic care would affect your child? Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci say that it’s a life-changing experience for not only the child, but the parent as well. After receiving care, the focus switches from being concerned about the symptom to realizing how much better their life is overall. Kids are happier, more well-behaved, eager to learn, and much more pleasant people to be around. By removing interference and helping them heal as a whole, it changes the trajectory of their life for the better! When it comes to taking care of your child’s health, Dr. Traci suggests that you trust your own intuition as a parent, rather than listening to a doctor who doesn’t know your child as well as you do. As a parent, you know what’s best for your child, and that’s trusting that their nervous system can heal on its own. Rather than trying to cover up symptoms, we have to understand the power of innate intelligence. Dr. Nick explains that when your child gets a virus, their body heats up naturally to kill the virus, causing them to have a fever. Although many people think that fevers are a bad thing, it’s actually a good thing because it’s the body’s way of fighting off infection by itself. Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci mention that the best thing you can do as a parent is to be curious about your child’s health. By asking questions such as “why is this health problem happening ...

Episode 23 - Kids and Chiropractic Part 1

Kids and Chiropractic Part 1 Did you know most of the health problems adults have are triggered by something that happened when they were a kid? In this week’s new episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross discuss the importance of kids receiving chiropractic care and how to be proactive about your health – not reactive. Dr. Nick tells a story of a 55 year old patient who took a reactive approach to his health, and waited to get care until after his pain had been bothering him for a while. This patient suffered a fall on his neck when he was 15 years old, and unfortunately didn’t ever give his body the support it needed to heal properly. “When you have an accident or injury that isn’t taken care of, it’s going to worsen over time – and you might not feel that worsening,” (Dr. Nick). If this patient had gotten the proper care he needed after his injury, he probably wouldn’t be in so much pain now, 40 years later. It’s extremely important to bring your child to a chiropractor whether they are injured or not, in order to prevent and correct injuries that could damage their health for the rest of their life. You might think chiropractic care is only for adults who suffer with back pain – but that isn’t the case. Chiropractic is a great tool for those of ALL AGES whether they are in pain or not! By receiving chiropractic care at a young age, our doctors can prevent and correct any spinal misalignment so your child can function at their maximum potential for years to come. When it comes to ...

Episode 22 - Neck Pain and Headaches: Finding the Root Cause Part 2

Episode 22 - Neck Pain and Headaches: Finding the Root Cause Part 2

Neck Pain & Headaches: Finding the Root Cause Part 2 This week’s episode is a continuation of last week’s about neck pain and headaches. If you missed part 1, listen here: https://maxliving.com/podcast/episode-21-neck-pain-and-headaches-finding-the-root-cause/ Today, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross discuss multiple factors that could contribute to neck pain headaches including dehydration, toxicity, and misalignment of the alar ligament. Dehydration isn’t always due to the fact that it’s hot outside and you need more water. Most people don’t realize that coffee, soda, or any other caffeinated drinks are known as dehydrants. Dr. Nick says you have to “drink 4 cups of water” in order to make up for just the acidity in these drinks alone. An easy way to analyze if you’re dehydrated is by looking at your urine when first you wake up in the morning. If your urine is clear, you’re not dehydrated, but if it’s yellow – you need to drink more water. When you hydrate, it’s important to be aware of what kind of water you’re drinking. Dr. Traci mentions that you shouldn’t drink water out of the tap because it could contain toxins and chemicals that are harmful to your body. Toxicity in tap water is extremely prevalent being that it doesn’t get filtered. There are numerous heavy metals such as arsenic or lead, and other chemicals that can be disruptive towards your brain. Dr. Nick says that if your water is contaminated, you can do what’s called “reverse osmosis” to filter it out. If you do this, make sure to add back the minerals into your water though because reverse osmosis filters them out. The third, and often overlooked cause for neck pain and headaches is ...
