A Personal Trainer - Anywhere In the World

A Personal Trainer – Anywhere In the World

You like to workout either late at night or early in the morning, like most people? You have tried the personal trainer in town and you aren’t a fan? You’re schedule is always changing and you can’t nail down a set time to train everyday? Well, you are in luck, I know just the solution for you. Online Personal Training.

Sounds gimmicky, right? Well, think about having a program tailored specifically to you that you can do on your own schedule. No need to think about what to do in the gym, no need to be concerned about making progress towards your goals, no need to coordinate schedules with someone else. Just head to the gym, pull out your program and get to work.

Online personal training is great for those who are already motivated to put in the work and reach their goals, but need a little bit of guidance on the programming. Maybe you aren’t sure how exactly to get to your goals, or maybe you just want to take the guesswork out of it. Either way, online coaching is going to give you just that. I write your program based on your goals; whether that be building muscle, losing fat, training for a race, or just maintaining your current fitness level!

I also work with my clients on things other than fitness. Health is broad topic that emcompasses a lot of different things. We talk about nutrition and how to eat for your goals, as well as how to eat for your future self. We talk about sleep and recovery because NO workout program is going to get you to your goals without proper rest periods! I also like to shed light on things like mindset, overall wellness, supplementation and much more!

Online personal training is more than just a cookie cutter program written by someone who is a “health coach”. These are well thought out programs that are designed with a scientific approach using how the human body reacts to exercise! Finding someone who has similar values as you, knows the WHY behind what you are doing and has the passion to work with you as closely as you will allow is what I strive for. That is the beauty of online personal training – finding a coach that aligns with you but doesn’t have to be physically near you to Read more ...

The Importance of Taking Care of Yourself

The Importance of Taking Care of Yourself

Healthcare is something that you must be proactive about. You cannot just sit aside and wait for things to get worse. If you are feeling any type of symptoms that may cause alarm you need to check on these things with someone as soon as possible. Getting the type of preventive maintenance that you need can be a big help when it comes to marginalizing your chances of having serious health care problems.

Skin Care Options

One of the biggest things that people tend to overlook is the importance of skin care. There are a lot of opportunities to improve your skin with a phoenix dermatology expert, but you have to realize the value of getting skin care before you take any serious strides about doing something about your skin. There are so many things to consider when it comes to skincare, so you need to get with a dermatologist that can help you out.

One of the most common things that people have problems with is acne. If this is a dilemma for you may try over-the-counter products in the beginning.

You may have oily skin, you may need something that is more than an over-the-counter solution for your problem. You may have a problem with cleaning your pores, and you may need a dermatologist that can recommend something that is specific based on your type of skin.

Internal Issues

A Common Boy's Congenital Birth Defect

A Common Boy’s Congenital Birth Defect

Any congenital disorder present at the birth of a baby is a birth defect. These defects present at birth may be developmental, physical, or intellectual. There are two main types of birth defects. A structural defect is a problem with a body part’s shape. A functional defect is a problem with how a body’s part works. A birth defect can be both functional and structural.

Now, treatment of birth defects depends on the specific defect. The treatment of a birth defect may be medication, therapy, assistive technology, surgery, or a combination of any of these. Approximately three percent of newborns in the United States are born with birth defects every year. In 2015, there were 628,000 deaths in babies caused by birth defects.

Boys’ Hypospadias Birth Defect

Of 1,000 boys born in the United States every year, five are born with hypospadias, a common birth defect in boys. A baby with the hypospadias birth defect doesn’t have the opening of the urethra at the tip of the penis as it usually is. Instead, the urethra opening is located anywhere between the end of the penis to the scrotum of the penis.

The opening location of the urethra determines a boy’s type of hypospadias. If the urethral opening is located near the penis’s head, the type of hypospadias is “subcoronal.” If the urethral opening is located somewhere along the penis’s shaft, the type of hypospadias is “midshaft.” If the urethral opening is located where the scrotum and penis meet, the type of hypospadias is “penoscrotal”.

Sometimes, boys with hypospadias have a penis that is curved. Boys with the hypospadias birth defect may spray urine abnormally making it necessary for them to sit to urinate. Hypospadias may also cause boys to have a testicle which has not fully gone down into the scrotum. Problems later in life can occur if a boy’s hypospadias is not treated.

The Type of Hypospadias Determines the Treatment

In the mildest form of hypospadias, glandular, a boy’s urethra’s opening is near the head of the penis, but it isn’t at its tip. If this type of hypospadias doesn’t cause the penis to curve during an erection or cause the boy’s urinary stream to be misdirected, it may not need to be corrected with surgery.

Hypospadias repair is usually done when a boy is six months to two years old. The surgery to correct the hypospadias birth … Read more ...

Health Is Something That You Can’t Turn Your Back On

Health Is Something That You Can’t Turn Your Back On

Neck pain is no laughing matter. It’s easy to think of it as a rather minor thing at first. When one doesn’t really have much in the way of pain yet it’s an annoyance rather than a real disruption. And to be sure, there is a chance that the pain will go away rather quickly. But often there’s going to be more to the story.

One of the main reasons is that neck pain is a complex issue. It’s not always something that one can easily figure out on his own. And of course, there’s always a chance that’s not the case. That’s why it’s a good idea to begin by considering recent changes to your activities. Or it might even be about how you go about those activities.

Sometimes there might not even be in a change in what’s done on a day to day basis. For example, one might experience pain from carrying a baby. This could be because babies constantly grow. Their weight goes up and suddenly the strain on your spine becomes more severe.

That’s why a good first step should involve simple mindfulness. As the day goes by consider what you’re doing. And consider your overall pain level. If you’re facing neck pain than there’s probably going to be varying levels of it as the day goes on. Now, the type of pain will differ on a person by person basis.

For some people, pain tends to start at a high level and go down as the day moves on. And others will experience the exact opposite. Their pain will start low and ramp up as the day goes by. The differences often point to the underlying issue.

When people start the day out in pain then sleep is usually the culprit. They might have pillows which put too much strain on their neck. Or their mattress might start to sink as weight’s put on it through the night. With more and more pressure applied to the neck every minute. People shouldn’t assume that’s the answer. But it’s a good place to start looking. And if they can’t fix it through those methods than a neck doctor should be their next step.

But those who start out the day with low pain levels will want to put the bulk of their focus on to daily activities. It might not seem that way. But they’re lucky … Read more ...

Growing Up with a Gluten Intolerance

Growing Up with a Gluten Intolerance

It’s estimated nearly 20 million people suffer from gluten sensitivity, and that number includes children. It is one of the more common allergies, and the most frequent chronic intestinal disease, but health professionals like Pinnacle Health Group say it’s easy for parents to misdiagnose.

What Is Gluten and Why Are We Allergic to It?

Glucoprotein or Gluten is a protein that is indigestible. It accounts for 80 percent of wheat proteins and is used in many food products for its thickening power, as it has a sticky and fibrous texture. Gluten is responsible for the elasticity of flour, which allows, together with the fermentation, the bread to obtain volume as well as the elastic and spongy consistency of baked doughs. Gluten allergies are a response of the body to a substance that cannot be tolerated. The body’s defense mechanism recognizes gluten as strange and dangerous, binds to it, which triggers a rapid and intense reaction.

The Impact of Gluten Allergies on Children

Doctors warn that gluten intolerance is five times higher in children than in adults, and kids are four times more likely to develop other health problems, like hypo and hyperthyroidism. This disease can occur at any age, since children incorporate gluten into their diet from a young age until adulthood. From the intake of gluten until the onset of symptoms usually take between 30 minutes and two hours. Perhaps the most significant sign that indicates that a child is intolerant to gluten are those that have to do with the digestive system:

*swelling of the belly
*nausea and vomiting
*stomach cramps
*constipation and diarrhea

Typically, intolerance is present in children before they reach 5 years of age. Lactose intolerance, nosebleeds or itchy skin are other ways to consider if your child suffers from a gluten allergy. The only treatment today for the allergy is the strict absence of gluten from the diet, and experts say this is challenging because even gluten-free foods show traces of ingredients that could cause harm.

Diagnosing a Gluten Allergy in Kids

The serology for kids with a gluten allergy consists of carrying out a simple blood test. Through this test, the level of antibodies that react against gluten can be measured. Children with this allergy with have high levels of antibodies found in the blood.

Genetic predisposition is one of the most important factors to consider. It is known that a … Read more ...
