Here’s a Great Testimonial From Bill!

October 2013

My initial goal in beginning 8 Weeks to Wellness was to simply feel better. The stress of caring for an elderly parent and the wear and tear of 62 years contributed to digestive problems and chronic aches and pains. Medical examinations found no serious problems, so I was left to treat symptoms with the normal regiments of antacids and ibuprofen. I considered myself a healthy person with an active lifestyle, but I didn’t feel well. 8 Weeks to Wellness provided an integrated program that included all of the elements that I have never been able to be consistent with. I needed the structure of the program to give form to my good intentions so that they could become reality in a consistent and comprehensive way.

The training part of the program provided new insights into working out and gave me the extra push to challenge my body. The adjustments and myofascial release therapy not only provided treatment, but also helped me understand the causes of my body aches. The result was physical and mental relief. The structure of a healthier diet and supplementation was also extremely helpful. The practice of using a journal to record what I was eating helped keep me on track and resulted in a change of lifestyle. My body now craves healthier foods and I have become acutely aware of how much better I feel when I keep my body well-nourished throughout the day. No more binge eating from feeling famished at the end of a long work day.

The results for me have gone far beyond my goal of feeling better. I have experienced a change in body composition, I have a stronger core and balance, I have a new love of exercise, and I have actually found great pleasure in healthy foods. An additional feature of the program was the use of a before and after blood test. Feeling better is a very subjective measurement of success, but the facts afforded by the blood work provided me with an objective look at the significant changes that had occurred internally. I truly am a healthier person thanks to this program.

I am grateful to the entire staff of Kambeitz Chiropractic for their encouraging and kind manner, their commitment to excellence, and their professional expertise.

Gratefully Yours,

Bill Meyers

Prevent Spring Cleaning Injuries

March came in like a Lion with a heavy, wet snow storm.  It looks like March will go out like a Lamb with beautiful, warm and sunny weather.  That means it is time for Spring cleaning and yard work.  Here are some helpful tips to a safe and injury free Spring!

  1. Stay hydrated.  Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water helps every process in your body work better, including your muscles and joints.
  2. Bend with your knees.  When lifting bags of soil or other heavy objects keeping your back straight and bending with your knees will reduce the chances of injury to your low back.  Keep this in mind even when lifting light objects!
  3. Avoid repetition.  I bet you rake leaves with the same motion every time.  Try mixing it up.  Over use repetitive actions can lead to injury.  Picture a wire coat hanger.  If you bend it enough times it will break!
  4. Take a break.  Many people will not stop until every last flower bed is clean.  Relax and have a glass of water. Stop to admire the work you have done along the way.  Those leaves and pine needles will still be there when you are done drinking your water.
  5. Warm up.  Getting your blood flowing will prepare your muscles and joints for activity.  Try some jumping jacks or burpees!
  6. Visit Kambeitz Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center.  Making sure your spine and muscles are healthy enough to work outside is the first step. If there is undetected restriction in your spine, unresolved muscle tension and tightness and if you are deconditioned, your chances of injury are much greater.

Documentary Review: Hungry for Change

Last weekend, I was searching for something to watch on Netflix and came across the documentary titled Hungry For Change.  Within a few minutes into the movie, I couldn’t help but compare the lessons from the movie to the lessons taught in the 8WW program.  (Hungry for Change and 8WW are in no way affiliated, but both have the same approach for health and wellness.)  This is great, in my opinion, because the majority of the population has a very low awareness about the wellness implications of their daily lifestyle choices.

The movie mentioned components of 8WW – nutrition, exercise, sleep, meditation, stress, the nervous system.  If you’re in 8WW, and you need a little bit of inspiration – this is the movie!

One line that I loved, from the movie was, “the problem is that we are not eating food anymore. We are eating food like products” which really resonated with me, having completed 8WW, when having to plan and journal the food we consume for each meal.

The movie included filmmakers from other popular wellness documentaries including Kris Carr of Crazy Sexy Cancer and Joe Cross of Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. (I enjoyed both of these too when I saw them)  These guests were definitely an asset, providing first hand accounts how changing a lifestyle has improved their health.  This movie shows that it’s about creating a wellness lifestyle, rather than just moving from diet to diet.

The movie addressed so many popular topics, that we find ourselves discussing each day at the clinic, yet find so many people lost and confused about. It would be hard to summarize the movie in a short blog post, so if you’re interested in changing your life and become healthy, I recommend you to check it out.  The movie trailer is above, and their website, hungryforchange.tv has more info, as well as a sign up to watch the first 20 minutes of the movie.  (If you are a Netflix subscriber the full video is currently available in their instant viewing).

If you saw the movie, please share your favorite quotes and what you learned!  Are you inspired to change your lifestyle now?
