Anti-Inflammatory Eating

This video on anti-inflammatory eating creates awareness concerning how a poor diet can create harmful systemic inflammation and unhealthy reactions in our bodies.

This video on anti-inflammatory eating creates awareness concerning how a poor diet can create harmful systemic inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation then leads to unhealthy reactions in our bodies that we should avoid.

  • When we create inflammation in our body through a poor diet we create harmful toxic conditions in the body
  • We should eliminate or dramatically reduce intake of grains, fats and seeds that have a poor oil profile and that create inflammation
  • We should avoid eating protein from animals that are grain-fed because the effects of grains in our proteins is passed on to us

An anti-inflammatory diet is one primarily comprised of green, red and orange vegetables, healthy nuts such as almonds and walnuts and organic, lean, grass-fed (pasture-raised) meats.

Video: What are musculoskeletal disorders

In this video article, Dan Fazio talks about three key ways to improve your health while preventing the increasingly common symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders.

Health and Wellness expert Dan Fazio talks about musculoskeletal disorders.

What are musculoskeletal disorders? Repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel and low back pain are becoming very common, taking an increasing toll on workplace productivity.

Carpal tunnel is brought about by poor work station arrangement and activities. There are three key contributors:

  1. Duration
  2. Load
  3. Repetition

These factors seem slight while working, but all three often combine to create an inflammatory state.

Our body is designed with capabilities related to different motions. But if we engage in unnatural motion, extended duration or excessive repetitions it can result in an "insult" to our system.

Video: Avoid musculoskeletal disorders with these simple steps

Health and Wellness expert Dan Fazio discusses ways to prevent musculoskeletal disorders. We can improve our health by paying attention to the way we work and by developing a few simple habits.

Pay attention to ergonomic design: Evaluate your workstation

  1. Your computer screen should be seen straight ahead, without needing to look up or down.
  2. Your chair and work surface need to be properly configured. An ergonomic keyboard is helpful.

Take micro breaks

  1. Take breaks every 20-30 minutes.
  2. Get up from a seated position and perform a brief overhead reach with deep inhale and exhalation.
  3. Set a timer if you need to.

Use physical activities outside of work. Engage muscle groups in different ways

  1. Yoga, Pilates, and cycling are great options, along with walking.

These habits aren’t complicated but they are proven methods that you can easily incorporate into your day. If you want to know more or if you want to find out about Dan's wellness workshops, learn more at rootsofwellness.com or call him at 636-227-4442.

How many of these experiences can you relate to?

Overwhelm, strained relationships, not enough time, not being understood, health concerns? These are all symptoms that you are out-of-touch with how your brain is wired for a successful life.

  • Getting the right things done in less time
  • Reduced stress
  • More free time
  • Cooperation and collaboration vs. competition

Alignment of your brain strengths, mood state, skills and competencies will yield higher productivity and a higher quality-of-life.

Alignment = Productivity + Quality-of-Life

Practical neuroscience is your unrecognized solution to being the very best you can be.

Back Pain: How To Work So You Don’t Have To Live With It

With this article, my aim is to assist you in learning how some simple changes in the way you do your work, utilizing ergonomic design of your workstation (especially the seat you are using) and micro-breaks throughout your day can greatly reduce the likelihood of back pain in your life.

Oftentimes it boils down to simple mechanics.

Our spine was designed to do a multitude of different things well. Unfortunately sitting for long periods of time was not one of them. While many animals share common traits in terms of the design of their spine, the curvatures in the human spine are unique. Humans are designed to allow for upright bi-ped (two-legged) movement, not sitting for prolonged periods.
