4 Benefits of Functional Medicine for Personal Trainers

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Personal training is much more than just coaching your clients through a few workouts a week. It’s a job that requires patience, compassion, and collaboration. You’re not just your clients’ coach – you’re their support system, their guide, their cheerleader, their nutritionist, and if you’re lucky, their friend. As a result, you need to implement all kinds of strategies across various disciplines (nutrition, fitness, medicine) to get your clients the results they deserve. One of these strategies comes in the form of functional medicine. Are you hoping to become a successful personal trainer? If you’re a current PT looking to […]

Part 3: Take a Deep Breath – Sanctuary Functional Medicine

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Moving beyond the big picture, many Long Haul COVID patients feel the need for a deep breath but cannot ever quite get what they need.  Obviously, a viral disease which infects the lung has the potential for leaving behind some lung damage.  COVID, however, could be considered an overachiever in its leftover damage compared to other viral diseases like flu or past SARS and MERS (Severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome). With the high rates of reported symptoms and high rates of objectively measured abnormal lung tests, Long Hauler COVID earns the attention it gets from research […]

What You Didn’t Know About Functional Medicine Could Save Your Like

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Our current health care system is, to a large extent, governed by profit-driven conglomerates that essentially force physicians to manage huge caseloads and keep people moving through the system as quickly as possible. It’s mass-produced, assembly line, quick-fix, put-a-band-aid-on-it medicine, with little hope of creating long-term health. However, rather than simply believing anything a conventional doctor tells them, the modern healthcare consumers are becoming more informed and taking more control of their healthcare. Because of this, more and more people are seeking out functional medicine. So, why is functional medicine so awesome? There are major holes in modern medicine in […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
 With the rage in biofilm research and the rise in public awareness of Lyme, we benefit from research like this article.  The European Journal of Microbiology and Immunology recently published findings that Borrelia (Lyme bacteria) and Chlamydia (both the different chlamydias that cause  “walking pneumonia” and the sexually transmitted diseases) very frequently co-exist in biofilms biopsied from skin lesions called Borrelia lymphocytoma.  The two microbes appear to work together in creating a protective biofilm which makes them 100-1000 times more resistant to anti-biotics.  Researchers believe such biofilms are behind not only persistent Lyme disease symptoms but explain why other bacteria […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Series on COVID Therapy Studies – Cytokine Storm With the onslaught by COVID and its coinciding onslaught of self-proclaimed experts with every opinion under the sun, I choose to respond with a series of research study reports so you can choose for yourself.  Each edition will bring a few studies describing possible therapies for COVID under investigation or reported in past research.  As my recent Facebook Live video noted, we do not know enough about this virus to be definite at this time.  I am not claiming any of these are the preventive or curative answer for you or your […]
