Thank you once again universe for having my back! I love baseball games and going with my GM team is so fun! But the past 2 years I was working in Mexico and missed so was super exctied to be in town. But then work got busy and I totally forgot to RSVP and pay by the deadline! But I asked if anyone had cancelled and sure enough someone did! So I'm still going. Always ask the worse that can happen is no. The best that can happen is your wish is granted! So don't be scared! What will you ask for today? #alwaysask#wellness#purpose#abundance#iworkforgm#automotiveprofessional#automotivewomen#findnewroads#chevrolet#chevyrunsdeep
I just got back from my first big trip since starting my career as a chiropractor! 😱😆
When my best friend found out she was presenting at a conference in Rome we figured what better opportunity to go on an adventure together!! I am SO incredibly grateful for the experience & proud of her for her accomplishments 🙌🏼
Being out of the office for 2 weeks seemed a bit scary at first... But once I fully embraced the adventure & soaked up the gratitude in my heart I felt joyful, expansive, excited and present. And it felt gooooood 😊
Lessons learned (or re-learned) • Always stay present to what is in front of me
• Notice when negative energies are creeping in and redirect my attention to what is real in the moment
• Tap into gratitude to unlock full enjoyment
• Everything will work out (& stressing doesn’t help)
• The world is a beautiful place! 🌏💫❤️
As a physical therapist who cares deeply about the health of our society, it brought me incredible joy to be able to collaborate with Green Heiress Holistic Health to bring EVOKE Physio into the workplace @ Buchanan Ingersoll and Rooney PC this afternoon! Many people experience neck or back pain or tightness or other ailments which can adversely affect their performance at work or their ability to participate in the activities they love. Having a consultation or evaluation with a skilled physical therapist to discuss concerns BEFORE the problem gets worse will save unnecessary medical visits, images, cost, and missed time off of work. Workplace wellness can be so much more than skin pricks and occasional follow up with an unnamed professional via phone conference 🙋🏻♀️ What would it be like to have access to a movement specialist while AT WORK to troubleshoot your issues before they snowball 🤔? To give you helpful information to steer you in the direction of health and movement rather than in the direction of tests, visits, and restrictions? Contact me with questions- I would love to chat ☺️And cheers to the amazing women (and men!) of @greenheiresspgh who put on an amazing wellness expo today that highlighted so many beneficial modalities to reduce stress in the workplace 🙌🏻👊🏻💪🏻 #workplacewellness#fitforwork#pittsburgh#health#wellness#fitness#physicaltherapy#physio#holistichealth#holistichealthcare#aspinwall#foxchapel@ericaaxelrod@susanamorose@ryanslyelmt

HAPPY DEATH-DAY TO ME!
1 year ago today I was admitted to hospital without realizing I was actually dying. A scan of my heart revealed a tight bubble of fluid resulting in a 146 heart rate and a temperature of 41 degrees was cooking me from the inside out. An exceptionally impressive rash spread all over my lower body and my legs felt on the verge of exploding. Not to mention the fact I could literally time food running through my system (5 minutes was my best time💩) Immediately doctors pumped me full of steroids and the cardiology ward would become my home for nearly three weeks. Doctors from every department visited and did various tests trying to figure out what on earth was happening to my body. 4-10 blood tests a day. MRI. CT scans. Finally by week three they had figured out what I already knew, I was rare as fuck, 2 in a million in fact. EPGA/Churg Strauss Syndrome. “If we don’t start you on cyclophosphamide (chemotherapy) tomorrow you will die.” BUT here we fucking are. Six rounds of chemo later, in medical remission, can even walk up a damn hill after months of struggling. Bonds with my family are tighter than ever. Incredible old friends and exceptional new ones fill my life with so much purpose. An amazing job doing what I love every day. A partner who sees all the good in me that I fought so hard to get back.
This disease could kill me.
Or it might not.
So let’s just not waste any bloody time and live happy, healthy, full lives okay sis? .
Fertility and hormones part 1:
Doesn't it blow your mind to think how you can literally curate the magic of another human life inside you?
Our bodies are SO much smarter than we are!
Hormones play a huuuge role in fertility, and without any of them the whole system would struggle.
Take oestrogen for example. When oestrogen rises during the first half of your cycle, it triggers a spike in luteinizing hormone, which in turn triggers your follicule in your ovary to release the egg its been maturing. The egg is then ready to be fertilised and to grow into a baby.
Learning more about each hormone, and the myriad of roles they each play is beyond cool. Well, we think so anyway!

Back by popular demand, Emily from @fueledbyfulton will be hosting her 2nd Nutritional Seminar for Osteoarthritis. .
Date: July 13th at LiveActive
Tickets are $20 (HST included)
This hour long workshop will include learning about how your diet and nutrition affects your #osteoarthritis and it’s associated symptoms. The seminar will focus on certain nutrients and new recipes that will help unlock the potential food has on our overall health.
Giving up sugar free gum and mints. Why I'm doing it and maybe you might too.
1.) It's common for those dieting and those with eating disorders to pop a piece of gum when they're hungry instead of eating. After all, the chewing mitigates the 3 calories....right? But the thing is, your brain thinks "mmm food" so it sends out digestive enzymes and some serotonin. Soon, when your body figures out there's no food, there's a drop in serotonin, and soon you're popping another one.
2.) The digestive enzymes and xylitol or sorbital can cause bloating, gas, and even diarrhea!
3.) Xylitol is dangerous to animals, if you spit your gum out, a poor squirrel could eat it and die. You monster (only half kidding here)
4.) The hunger doesn't go away.
5.) You can get to the point where you're eating more than 40 packs of gum a day just trying to satiate yourself. It won't work ( Minnesota starvation experiment anyone??)
So whay about the exception?????
Okay if you eat a smelly meal or snack, it's nice to not smell like onion or whatever, but brushing your teeth, or popping a mint can work too. Gum is okay in moderation, and the ADA does agree salivating for 20 minutes after a meal by chewing gum can be good for you, but gum isn't food.
It's not a meal replacement.
Sugar free stuff may not spike your blood sugar, but that doesn't make it great if you're using it for the wrong reasons. .
Having tennis elbow on both sides sucks. .
The standard Physio approach for tennis elbows has revolves around strengthening the extensor tendon - which is what degenerates in tennis elbow. .
But lately I have been working through getting full ribcage and shoulder motion first - which helps create better elbow motion. For this case we were able to reduce his pain in both elbows by 70% over 6 weeks without even touching his elbow ! .
Now shoulder motion is restored we are using bicep and tricep curls to create more supination and pronation in the elbow= less pain and less chance of future injuries
In preparation for Texas’ first industrial hemp season in 2020, Texas Farm & Process has been hard at work converting farms across the US into viable hemp operations.
Pictured here is an active conversion in progress. We’ve been transforming an Oregon-based vineyard into a dual-use hemp farm (without interrupting the grapes or interfering with current infrastructure). ———————————//————————————

Planning next months #JulySoFly challenge group in the garden because I CAN!
While I love my day job, being able to run the challenge groups too is awesome for me. It’s forcing me to focus on my own health and wellbeing needs, AND still support others and giving back to the community that got me started and keeps me going cause you know giving back is something that’ll never change 😂
If you’re ready to set yourself the challenge of sticking to some of the FUNNEST workouts you could possibly want (I mean it’s not a challenge is it really 😂) and commit to a healthier life, come on over and say hi 👋
