Let’s Get Started: Efficient and effective systems work right away, and you feel good about them. If you don’t want to change, you will be emotionally unready or opposed to our system. Please self-select out and quit now, quitting later will frustrate everyone and waste time and money!
You cannot get to where you want to go behaving the way you got here today!
Mind, Perceptions, Lifestyle, Awareness level, Emotional, and Body Maturity Awareness.
I had a patient tell me once after I had asked her: What is your perfect weight? And what are the drawbacks if you were that weight right now? She began to tear a little and holding back; she said to me, “I have a younger husband, and if I lose weight and get to 142 my perfect weight, then I would have wrinkles and feel old”. This is the number one overlooked obstacle to accomplishing your goal, hidden mental benefits you cannot see as the eye cannot see itself to your perfect weight. We are different, and we will first address the mental balance it takes to be your ideal weight!
Calorie intake, blood type diet, meal timing, and your attitude on food
Is your diet compatible with your blood type? To summarize the Blood Type book, we are not all made the same, and with studying demographics and how blood carries proteins, there are efficient forms of food that take more or less work for your blood type. Why not eat efficient ones? We are not black and white and realize this is only 80% correct in approximation. We will account for your uniqueness and continue to explore together.
How much are you eating? Vague Generalities allow us to guess and minimize or exaggerate what is going on, which means our beliefs are made on gross approximations. In the realm of inflammation, a half of a millimeter is the difference between pain and no pain and hormone imbalances and peace and tranquility. We need to get real, and we will investigate and study prior to starting a diet to make sure you start the correct plan. So many people try what worked for their husband or their friends with very different bodies, histories, and genetics. That is a failed journey even prior to their beginning. No wonder it’s difficult to stay on a diet and to succeed and to continue to succeed. Dynamic changes will be needed for your new destination after you succeed with this plan. As metabolism corrects and activity increases to better energy, more calories will be necessary, and the future choices and post-coaching are important. That’s why we have a post-program available to help with your new, transformed life.
Random eating, how many times are you eating, are you starving? Most people do not look at their digestive system from the perspective of an anatomist or physiologist. They think of it as a mouth to put in good-tasting foods they like or meals that make them feel warm and fuzzy from childhood. But it is really a tube that intakes nutrition and energy so our bodies can regenerate and fuel up. The tube then discerns between wastewater and useable utilizing bacteria to help. Many of our eating habits have been on autopilot since we were 2 years old. This is a very immature and irresponsible way to look at our digestive system. We ignore, forget, and get embarrassed about the waste or anus end of our digestive tube.
Remember when we thought eggs were bad? All foods have pros and cons, balancing your loved and hated foods will help hormonal responses to food. If extreme food opinions arise, you have an imbalanced perspective on food that may be preventing you from reaching your goals. A co exercise for the brain you can implement is DMETHOD on food with Dr. Cara Olsen so you can create a love for eating by balancing your perspective on food!
The Pros Always do the basics before a game and practice daily. Those who fail at life fail to train and practice for life!

Exercise Myths: Knowing deficiencies and creating excess calories.
How much are you exercising? Vague generalities allow us to guess and minimize or exaggerate what is going on, which means our beliefs are made on gross approximations. In the realm of exercise, we need to get our heart rate up to 120 beats per minute, sweat, and have full ROM! Many people only do elliptical and are not moving their bodies in full ROM, just many partial ranges of motion. To provide a solution, we promote a wide variety of closed chain exercises, which means using groups of exercises with good form and rehabilitation of any injuries. It starts with the basics; Proper breathing patterns are at the core and overlooked by many health care professionals. Movement is life, and if you do not feel comfortable in being your own movement coach, try with a rehab specialist. To schedule a rehab consultation, ask for Dr. Michael Nguyen DC!
We also have a post-program to set up the dynamic changes for your new physique destination after you succeed with this plan. As your coordination, strength, flexibility, and activity increases–to better energy, different exercise routines will be needed to follow up into major success. Future choices and post-coaching are important. We have the plan and amazing facilities and providers to refer you to. We will get you to the right place.
Medications can alter taste.
How much are you taking and at what dose? Vague Generalities allow us to guess and minimize or exaggerate what is going on, which means our beliefs are made on gross approximations. There currently is no research on how drugs interact once you are on 3-5 drugs at the same time, and many studies have no long term effects as drugs change and research studies take so long in medicine that we don’t ever see long term consequences. But this does not mean they don’t exist. In the realm of medicine, to put things into perspective, –12 ibuprofen can accomplish suicide. Pretty powerful jammed packed mystery medicine is risky and hard to monitor.
I have a patient whom I have great communication, but recently yelled angrily at me after a positive progress exam and making great progress with her treatment. I was confused and gave her my best recommendations based on what we did with chiropractic. She was telling my front desk chiropractic doesn’t work because her hands and feet were swelling, and she was uncomfortable. She later came back and apologized, telling me that the swelling was definitely due to the Gabapentin, and after she quit, the symptoms went away. We were able to chuckle and move on because we cared for one another.
Today, the general population is trained to see results now or quit and look for another quick solution or increase their dosage. These are all dangerous approaches that create a dangerous mindset. A great harmonious relationship with MD, DC, ND, LMT, and ACU is ideal for whole-body wellness, and you get that at our clinic.
Let’s get real. No one watches a movie trailer and claims to know the movie. The body is complicated, and we need to watch the whole movie to make good decisions about it. The body will not go back to normal function on medications, as medications are designed to do the functions for the body. Ideally, a patient returns to healthy cycles on their own. So, medications are great short term acute stabilizers, but not long-term fixes. Getting the proper tests and information means we start out with high probabilities of success due to proper strategy as the goal is to properly assess the body. We do this with our house, and cars, its now time to do this with our bodies!
It’s difficult to stay on an exercise routine and to succeed and to continue to succeed.
How much are you sleeping? Vague Generalities allow us to guess and minimize or exaggerate what is going on, which means our beliefs are made on gross approximations. Do you sleep in the dark? Is their light or computers near you? Is there noise, roads with diesel fresh air carpet, etc. Do you sleep in 1.5-hour increments? Are you stressed or in gratitude before sleep? Did you nap during the day when you were tired? We make sleep maps to look at daily rhythm, check to see if you sleep at the same time, or have dueling schedules. We need to sleep and get our circadian rhythm happy. Pick the number of hours you need to sleep and let your body get on a rhythm for months and years! Yes, traveling through time zones is a big no-no in this health category!
As metabolism corrects and activity increases to better energy, more calories will be necessary, and the future choices and post-coaching are important to stay consistent on rhythms. Most people, when they get results, they feel satisfied at the moment and quit and go back to old habits. Clearly, doing what works longer will ensure you keep your results, so coaching is what all professionals use. They do the basics and have accountability!
We will investigate you prior to starting your diet to make sure you get the right plan.
Hormones, Natural Rhythms, and Bioidentical Imbalances from stress or surgeries
This subject is a passion of mine. In undergraduate studies, I was into endocrinology at a research school where we were involved in LH and FSH studies in the reproductive regulations of rats and humans.
When you eat, timing is important–so what time of day if you were inhaling your food or carefully chewing matters. If you lay down or exercise directly after you eat, if you are stressed after you eat, or if you are relaxed. Have you honestly considered any of these things? As soon as you put food in your mouth you produce a hormone that tells your small intestine to wake up more food is coming, your stomach prepares for more food and not only does your body have to physically mash down your food it has to chemically break up fats, so the liver, pancreas, and hypothalamus get involved. I will spare you the details, but all organs secretly get information from hormones sending and receiving signals. If those signals don’t line up with what the brain and nerves are relaying amongst one another, the body has an imbalance, and it decodes and compensates for it. We hardly understand this process at all, and we literally have 200 and more hormones to discover in the future. Yikes! So what do we really know? Be very, very, very careful when attempting to change your hormones. They are your body’s wireless communication system. Please do a basic consultation with me, and I can get you to the right person based on what hints you give me at our visit together. Usually, hormones, epigenetics, and genetics go hand and hand together, so ask me about this too!
We have post programs to set up the dynamic changes for your new destination after you succeed with this plan.
Genetics, Body Type, Metabolism Type, Auto Immune, Conditions, Altered Smell and Taste
Ever wonder why your siblings are different even though you have the same DNA?
Vague Generalities allow us to guess and minimize or exaggerate what is going on, which means our beliefs are made on gross approximations. Vague assumptions about what you got from mom dad or grandma doesn’t cut it in this day and age. Epigenetics is the study of how our experiences with our environment elicit supportive or threatening hormones which methylate DNA and turn on and off genes in our genetic code. Most certainly, you would agree that siblings do not perceive the world the same. Today you can have extensive genome testing. It is the way of the future. IF you have a rich genetic history, there is folic acid and riboflavin genetic mutations, and you can test for homozygous DNA expression as this is detrimental to your food intake and determine side effects from enriched foods. In the realm of inflammation, a half of a millimeter is the difference between pain and no pain, hormone imbalance, and peace and tranquility amongst the systems of the body. Many people eat 3 inflammatory foods a day, that’s a little under 1000 inflammatory foods a year. This is a losing game for sure. My goal is to eliminate the struggle in the beginning because you are certain of the cause and have direction in a prioritized order. Many people who need or want to lose weight have 1-20 obstacles in their way, and prioritization is key. If you start with the right one, it may get rid of 10 others. I will exclusively and repetitively lecture on the great dynamics of balance and prioritization of life necessities.
So many people try what worked for their husband or their friends with very different bodies, histories, and genetics. That is a failed journey even prior to their beginning.
How much are you taking, at what age, for how long, at what time of day, with or without food, consistent or inconsistent, expired or new, cheap Costco or real whole food supplement? With patient’s absorption levels or in what combination with other supplements? A vitamin C overdose with blood thinners with omegas could cause excessive blood thinning and bruising.
No wonder it’s difficult to stay on track and notice improvements and dis-improvements in supplementation other than some supplements due to malabsorption and hormone imbalances that take months to absorb. To decrease frustration and confusion, we have a post-program to set up the dynamic changes for your new destination after you succeed with this plan as metabolism corrects and activity increases. To better energy, more calories will be necessary, and the future choices and post-coaching is important. It is done by our doctors and watched by our assistants to make sure you succeed. Supplementation is good when there is a deficiency. Most of our food now a day is very skinny in nutrition, and supplementation is needed, especially in higher concentrations when you eat for pleasure. Mild supplementation is necessary when you eat to live and for the body’s functions vs. pleasure and taste. With food and supplementation, avoid extremes; Everything you consume has benefits and drawbacks, so you want to have good eating habits such as being aware of the combinations of foods that you eat at what time in and in what quantities. Plan your supplementation around the excess and deficiencies you know are in your regular diet. Nowadays, it is very easy, we have food labels, so there really isn’t any excuse to be unaware of what you are eating. Now how things are labeled is tricky. You can request a class for that as some things can be legally listed as a blend, which is vague isn’t it!!! The supplementation industry is a billion-dollar industry, and most people do not get a doctor’s approval when they try things! Use your money wisely and put it all towards being clear on what is an imbalance, then towards your priorities, and watch your success come to you.
The dynamics of supplementation should change as often as your diet, so think about that. The number one thing I see is not only the disconnection between food and supplements, but people just regularly taking supplements and not changing it up based on what their body needs.
Vague Generalities allow us to guess and minimize or exaggerate what is going on, which means our beliefs are made on gross approximations. Oversimplifying is getting us into an overcomplicated consequential mess.
So many people try what worked for their husband or their friends with very different bodies, histories, and genetics. That is a failed journey even prior to their beginning!!!
How much are you taking, at what age, for how long, at what time of day, with or without food, consistent or inconsistent, expired or new, water from the faucet city or well, bottled, distilled, artesian, properly ph 8 or 9 or even 10!?!? OMG!!!! I had a patient who was vegan and always caught colds and had fungal issues. She had a ph machine making alkaline water, and with her drinking 10 pHs and being already alkaline–which naturally occurs with a vegan diet, it made her system extreme, and it had to come up with compensation patterns. So a lot of people go out of their way to be healthy and try too hard to create a healthy change in the body leading to detrimental semi-permanent results. It’s the same concept as slow, sneaky internal organ damage by drinking too many sugary beverages for decades.
We really don’t have any idea whats going. Even when people go to get checked up again, the bare minimum testing is done, so we get our movie trailer version of what things are like in the body THAT DAY! And we assume we are great and act surprised when something has been wrong for a while, and we didn’t even know!
When you start a healthy water regimen (considering many things are necessary not just to drinking water), the general minimum per day is half your body weight in ounces per day. When do you drink water? In what combination with other supplements or do you drink water with meals? I had a patient who reported taking vitamin A and then started taking vitamin C. I noticed small bloody bruises and asked him if he was on blood thinners, and he said yes. I explained to him the multiple complex relationships of multi dosing as I call it can provide a unique version of an overdose with blood thinners; Combined with omegas, it could cause excessive blood thinning, bruising, etc. We need to get real!! Dig out your details!!!!! Look at everything we are doing; look at it all!!!! You guys will get sick of me saying this. Oversimplifying is getting us into an overcomplicated consequential mess, so don’t just drink water–be strategic. If you are drinking with the girls and guys in Vegas this weekend, drink double the water before, during, and after, does that make sense to you??
The hidden low self-esteem are creators of weight loss and health.
Gimmicks like braces, pedometers, apps, and helpers can become enablers! I cannot weight lift for you, and you get strong… There is only one way through a problem lean in an speed through it with a coach and with visioning what you want. Habits old never die they hang around forever you cannot stop something we have known this for decades in neurology brain cells and their activity are paths and just like a new terrain path with a machete cutting down a new path is hard but the only way to not go down the already created patch. Every moment when we do anything from farting to thinking to eating to biting our nails we are creating neural pathways and habits based on our beliefs based on how we perceive our environment and if we received what we want or if we didn’t. When we are over supported and not challenged we become dependent. Most patients are in a smart way very aware of this and do as much on their own. The trend today is try everything until you fail a lot then finally go to doctor, that is just silly. That is the do so much work for nothing and when your exhausted start all over again based on someone’s advice you tried to avoid. Try this the successful hate working hard go to the doctors right away and then work hard doing the things recommended and researched to make sure they agree and research and make sure all is good with the process. That is success. Let’s do this. Schedule a consultation so we can prioritize for you what to start with to make sure you meet all your goals and have an amazing body.
