Do doctor cure us or just patch us up?

image

We had a doctor join our team this week and he had some amazing things to say about our company.  Sorry for the novel.

“It is amazing how much medicine some people are on. As an emergency department physician, on a daily basis, I see people on 20, 30, even 40 medications a day. This is crazy!

If you have Diabetes, add 2-5 medications. Hypertension, add 2-3 more. If your have had a heart attack or have COPD, you could be on 5 medications for each.

If you have chronic pain, add narcotics, gabapentin, and a muscle relaxant. The cost of all these medications is often several hundred dollars a month.

So much of what we do as physicians is patchwork. If you have a problem, there is a medicine which might help. These medications usually do not fix the problem, but instead only cover it up.

I am coming to realize, however, that there is a much better way through diet and exercise. If there was a medication that cost $100 to $150 a month that could cure many of the ailments my patients suffered and would allow them to come off many of their current medications over time, they would demand to be on it.

For that price, they could get a BeachBody program, push play, maintain a good diet, and purchase appropriate supplements like Shakeology. They would loose weight, become physically stronger, and overall be much healthier. Many of their diseases would resolve and they would need less medication. They would live longer, healthier lives.

The problem is, however, that the healthy lifestyle takes a lot of physical effort, which the majority of the population is not willing to put forth. For them it is easier to take 30 to 40 pills a day.

I commend everyone on this message board for having the strength of will to go after their health goals. Lets all be good examples to friends and family of what a healthy lifestyle is all about.”

Do you use a pre workout drink?

I had someone yesterday asked me about getting energy for a workout. I do believe that pre workout drinks help you pick up your game but if you don’t have everything balanced it could just be dropping energy from you that you need later.

Make sure that you are using supplements wisely to increase your performance and not as a bandaid to mask things that you are not doing.

Eat, sleep, hydration and then supplements to fill in gaps and improve performance.

A.M. Snack time

I break up my nutrition into breakfast AM snack lunch PM snack and dinner. So simple little snacks are important to make sure that I I’m fueling my body for my workouts in daily business activities as well as my family time.

This is quick and easy snack to gold me over between breakfast and lunch.

1/2 a banana sliced
1-2 tsp of peanut butter

Take two slices of banana and dab a little peanut butter between the two slices and enjoy.
