I am feeling really strong, fast, and ready for the Pan Am games next week. Even as I go about my weight cut (I am dropping to 56kg) my energy is great. In the gym I am lifting strong, kicking high, and punching explosively. When you have to drop weight for a fight it is important to be smart about how you do it. Cutting too much at once, or dropping muscle instead of fat can have dangerous side effects in the ring. Luckily I have a rock star health team surrounding me with support. Let me give you the “low down” on my health coaches.
Lake Pointe Chiropractic and Wellness:
Dr Carrie keeps me in fine form with regular adjustments which frankly are needed when I am getting punched around in sparring classes and kicking into other peoples ribs and faces. Kicking and punching real bodies has a nasty effect of jamming up my phalanges and giving me neck kinks, not to mention tightness in the hips and hammy’s from all the training. Carrie’s adjustments keep me all lined up and firing on all cylinders. She also oversees my weight cut and takes great care to measure my numbers so I am not losing muscle or cellular water that protects my organs, tissues, and cells.
Lake Pointe is an entire wellness center too. Carrie isn’t the only wonderful chiro doc there. Becky, Chad, and Jessica all have supernatural healing energy + they care about you so much which feels great to receive in health care.
Susan Prince does amazing massage work for me. Jolla Sharee is an intuitive healer and acupuncturist, and I’ve seen Vicki Abernathy for energy work to clear mental and emotional blockages as well.
I get all my supplements and my Dynamic Greens which are a MUST HAVE in my diet from them. Check them out, make an appointment and put your health first. You won’t regret it! 612-922-8100 or find them at lpwellness.com
Body Restoration, LLC:
Molly Brackett is in a word: Genius. I went to see her last year after I was struggling with tightness in my hamstrings that was preventing me from kicking. She is does Structural Integration which is better known as rolfing. I had definitely heard of rolfing before and how painful it could be so I was a bit nervous about visiting Molly. I could not believe it after my first session of a ten series with her. It seemed as though she had barely touched me and my feet had opened up which gave me immediate relief in my hamstrings. Over the course of 10 weeks I was finally able to kick again and sit and drive in my car without pain which had been almost intolerable previously.
This week I had some more swelling in that darn toe of mine that I broke 9 weeks ago and I went in to see Molly. As I stood up after my session the swelling had already gone down and the entire joint had opened up.
If you have nagging injuries or pains that you have tried everything for and they haven’t gone away, you need to see Molly. She will change your life. Check her out at mybodyrestoration.com or call her and set up an appointment 612.310.1004
I am a straight shooter kind of gal but over the years of experimenting with holistic medicine and realizing tangible positive results in my life I have come to believe in and abide by the holistic paradigm which teaches prevention and healing from “within”.
The last frontier for me was homeopathy. I wasn’t sure what to expect and yet I knew deep down that my cells and muscles held memories of injuries and traumas that I carried with me. I am a healthy person and yet I wanted to feel fully supported in my health practices and so I decided to meet with Mary.
Seeing Mary alone is enough (at least that is what I initially thought). My first appointment in her office was an opportunity for me to share my history and see how it was connected to my current health issues and ongoing or repetitive behaviors and injuries. Seriously, even though I thought it was “enough” just to see her and talk it all out once she gave me my remedy I never would have guessed how much balance and calm it brought back into my life. It was the most subtle and beautiful shift over the course of 6-8 weeks and I only took one remedy.
I am sold, and now I can’t wait to see Mary when I get back from Brazil. I know after all the training and adrenal engagement over the last 6 weeks my body is going to be very happy to get one of Mary’s special remedies. This could be just the thing you need to help you find balance, find out more and book an appointment with Mary Faye. 651.325.7980 or idm-homeopathy.com
