Lifestyle Physical Therapies:What is Lifestyle Medicine?

What is Lifestyle Medicine?
It is night time, the family is peacefully sleeping. You are suddenly awakened by the shriek of a smoke detector alarm.

What's your next move?

Turn off the alarm and go back to sleep?

NO, you investigate what set it off, locate the fire and put it out.

Then why do we turn off our body's alarm signals without investigating the triggers?

For instance joint pain and arthritis are commonly treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, but doesn't it make more sense to investigate the cause? Is your diet and lifestyle producing inflammatory chemicals that attack your tissues? Specific corrective advice and where appropriate, nutritional supplements can treat the cause, not only fixing the painful symptoms but strengthening your whole immune system.

For the most part our medical health system is reactive and spends most of its resources masking or suppressing symptoms of illness and injury. Too few resources are invested in treating the underlying causes and moving us to a place of wellbeing where we can enjoy good health and vitality.

If you are interested in this deeper approach - then Lifestyle Medicine is what you are seeking. Lifestyle Medicine is practised by highly qualified and experienced medical doctors who treat the whole person, not just their symptoms. Treatment programs are tailored to the patient's individual needs and may incorporate:

Treatment Programs

1. Lifestyle changes
2. Nutritional advice
3. Prescription-only medications
4. Nutritional supplements
5. Natural bio-identical HRT
6. Counselling
7. Enhancing self-understanding
8. State of the art pathology and radiology for accurate and early diagnosis
9. Education

Lifestyle Medicine is truly effective as it uses the best of both worlds - Mainstream Medicine combined with Complementary Therapies.

Initial appointments are at least 30-45 minutes to allow for a thorough investigation in areas such as diet, exercise, hormonal imbalances, liver function, immune function and emotional issues. Any prescribed treatments will be accompanied by a common sense explanation in plain English of what's happening to your body and how it may respond to treatment.

Once you and your Lifestyle Doctor have developed and agreed upon a tailor made program you will be better prepared and far more motivated to follow through with the advice.

That's why our success rates are so high!

Current statistics reveal that the average life expectancy is on the rise. Today you can expect to live well into your eighties or even into your nineties and beyond.

What quality of life would you like in your last twenty to thirty years?
1. Dementia with a total loss of your mental faculties
2. Immobilisation from a stroke
3. Blindness from diabetes
4. Chronic chest pain and shortness of breath from heart disease
5. Terrible side effects from cancer chemotherapy

Unfortunately these things are becoming epidemic for baby boomers and those who will become old in the future - only holistic medicine is truly preventative medicine. I'm sure that you would prefer to live to a ripe old age whilst remaining in good health. There are proven health principles we can follow that will drastically improve our chances of this becoming a reality.

Don't wait until it's too late!

Brisbane Network Chiropractic: Network Spinal Anaylsis

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is a relatively new form of Chiropractic which is effective in assisting people to manage their stress levels as well as spine and body tension. Developed by American chiropractor Dr Don Epstein, NSA uses specific, very gentle touches at the top and base of the spine to assist the recipient in releasing stored tension throughout their body.

When we experience stressful situations, our body goes into an immediate defensive posture called "fight or flight" physiology. This survival mechanism leads to muscle tightness, increased heart rate and blood pressure, distorted posture and guarding of the spine, while non-essential functions like the immune, digestive and reproductive systems are suppressed. At the same time our emotions and feelings are bottled up and stored as tension in the body. This commonly leads to ongoing ill-health and problems involving the spine and central nervous system.

Network Care recognizes the serious impact stress has on our health and acts by suspending the stress response and allowing the body to tap into its natural healing capacity. Permanent strategies are learned that will take an individual out of defence posture and into a state of relaxation, the body learns to self-correct and regulate its own tension.

Recent and ongoing research has shown that NSA consistently improves overall quality of life with respect to:

  • Increased energy
  • Increased flexibility
  • Reduced pain and headaches
  • Markedly reduced stress levels and greater ability to cope with stress
  • Improved emotional wellbeing
  • Improved ability to concentrate
  • Reduced anxiety and depression
  • Greater confidence
  • Higher productivity
  • Increased ability to adapt to change
  • Increased contentment with self, work and life.

Holosync:Meditate Deeper than a Zen Monk!

The benefits of meditation on the mind and body have been known for thousands of years and have recently been validated in scientific studies. Unfortunately, many people find it difficult to meditate and give up without receiving these benefits. This problem has now been solved with the release of a powerful audio technology called Holosync that sends a very specific stimulus to the brain and creates states of deep meditation, quickly and easily.

Stimulating the brain with Holosync releases stress-reducing chemicals that are highly pleasurable. Most people go easily into a deep, trance-like meditative state normally only attained by experienced monks who have been meditating for over 20 years. In fact, EEG studies show the brain patterns experienced are actually deeper than those attained by monks.

As new neural pathways connect and synchronise the two sides of the brain, individuals develop what scientists call "whole brain functioning," which improves learning, intuition, mental clarity, creativity, concentration, and intelligence, as well as amazing quantum leaps in insight and self-awareness.

New research also reveals that even short-term exposure to Holosync creates significant increases in DHEA which is a precursor, or source ingredient, to virtually every hormone your body needs and is a buffer against stress-related hormones . It is a key determinant of physiological age. When DHEA levels are high, the body is at its peak - vibrant, healthy, and able to combat disease effectively.

Holosync also increases your ability to deal with stress and releases emotions such as anger, fear, sadness and anxiety. When Holosync is used regularly over time, many people discover that dysfunctional feelings and behaviours fall away - even those that have stubbornly resisted change in the past.

Money is Gratitude By Joanne Hay

“Poverty is restriction and as such, it is the greatest injustice you can perpetrate upon yourself.” -Stuart Wilde A friend recently commented that my husband and I talk about money too much. He warned we may offend those without any. I asked him if he thought we talked about sex too much too. We have been told this before. Money, sex and majik have been taboo subjects for a millenia. The reason for this is the incredible spiritually transformative energy they hold. (more…)
