I am very excited to finally get started with this program. This has been a dream of mine well before chiropractic school. I had a speaker at a conference I attend talk about “watch what your kids do without us as parents telling them to do an activity, what do they do for fun”. This really stuck in my mind because as a father of 3 boys I really watch what they do and I try to guide them rather than “force” them in one direction in life. This comment made me think about how being a Doctor of Chiropractic was a calling for me because it entails everything that I think about from a young boy until now. Hockey also consumes a lot of my thoughts then and now, but hockey and being an athlete help shape me into the Doctor I am today. I constantly think of the foods I am eating, I read food labels just naturally now. I think about how the dyes and processed foods are killing us. I love to work out and push myself, I love seeing people working out because I know how much it is helping there body if done with correct form. I love the aspect of quieting the mind in meditation/prayer because as a society we are bombarded daily with thoughts, approximately 60,000/ day according to Dr. Wayne Dyer. Adjustments have been a weekly habit since my days as a hockey player, If everyone knew the science behind getting adjusted it would be more common in our society. My kids are proof of how the power of the adjustment has kept them so healthy. Just today my son Dino was having a headache and the first thing I did was adjust him, make sure he was drinking water and made him something to eat then did some myotherapy… headache gone without drugs. I am not against drugs but why would you take a drug if you can help element symtoms without taking them. As you can see the reason I love this program is because I know that we will be able to help many more people. Going back to my very first point the aspects of 8ww is something I have been thinking about since I was a kid, this is not work for me, I live this program everyday of my life. Am I perfect at all aspects, NO!, but I will continue to live to my true health potential because our health is the most important asset we all have, everything revolves around our HEALTH. I can’t wait to get started. Today I was writing out my eating plan for the week, with a family of 5 you cant just wing your diet, you need to plan everthing. I cant wait for our first workout with our trainers on Tuesday. At 45, my expectation is to be in the best shape of my life.
