  • What is Ayurveda?

    An integrative approach to mind/body wellness developed and practiced in India for centuries. In the United States it is a complementary health approach. A study of how lifestyle patterns and habits contribute to a person’s health, Ayurveda focuses on a pre- ventative care routine. If an imbalance occurs the focus is on restoring balance in the mind/body through a personalized plan that can include specialized diet and lifestyle choices. Ayurveda looks at the whole person when assessing health, rather than the parts alone. An Ayurveda health counselor believes that a highly personalized approach brings the best results possible. Ayurveda doesn’t replace treatment from a medical doctor, but it gives you extra tools for health and wellness maintenance between visits with your doctor. What does an Ayurveda Health Counselor (AHC) do? An initial session with an AHC will last about an hour and a half. During that time the counselor will ask questions about many aspects of your life. A physical assessment is also part of the process...You might be surprised to know how much your tongue, hair, and nails can tell you about your digestion! Using this information, the counselor will formulate a plan to help you coordinate diet, lifestyle, and exercise recommendations unique to your body. It is an approach to help you figure out how to make choices and stay connected to whole body wellness. Follow-up appointments are typically half an hour long depending on need. Ayurveda encourages you to be an active participant in your own journey toward heal- ing. Ayurveda can help us: • Honor and develop our strengths • Discover our challenge areas • Redirect unfavorable tendencies • Maintain balance in the face of adversity ~Tonia Mayerle

  • It's Just a Number

    The BMI (Body Mass Index) is a simple tool used to categorize individuals as underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on only two factors: height and weight. Age, gender, race, muscle mass, bone density, and overall body composition are not taken into consideration. According to the BMI, you are of normal weight if your BMI is between 18.5 and 25, overweight if it is between 25 and 30. Anybody with a BMI of 30 or more is categorized as obese. BMI is derived from a simple math formula, BMI = weight (kg) / height2. Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet, a Belgian astronomer, mathematician, statistician, and sociologist, devised it in the 1830s. When Quetelet devised the BMI formula, there were no computers, calculators, or electronic devices, so he developed a simple system. It was never designed to assess the "healthy weight'' of an individual, so it really only sort-of works at that. And, although we now have technology that can help us add some complexity to the calculation, any one single number will still not be able to assess our overall level of health or true risk for disease. Unfortunately, the CDC (the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the NIH (the National Institutes of Health) still stand by the BMI. It is still used by many researchers, health care providers, and fitness professionals and seems to be the “gold standard” for many insurance companies. The BMI really is just a number. When considering your overall level of health and risk for disease, I recommend finding a provider that will also take into consideration your family history and a handful of other tests and measurements that together can help pull together a more complete picture for you. ~Coach Nicole Resources: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/265215 https://www.huffpost.com/entry/body-mass-index_b_7693450 https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/255712#is-it-too-simple

  • I am going to start training for a 5K run. Would it help me to have my running form evaluated?

    Yes! A running analysis can be very beneficial as you start training for any race or running event. Having your form evaluated is important for identifying imbalances or asymmetries that may lead to injury as your training progresses. During the evaluation, your posture, body mechanics, stride length, cadence, and foot strike will all be assessed. Based on the findings from your analysis, recommendations and education on running posture, individualized strengthening and mobility exercises, appropriate shoes, and injury prevention techniques will be provided. Running should be an enjoyable activity for everyone. A running analysis can help you run happy and healthy! ~Dr. Tricia Serres, DPT
