Holiday Workout Calendar

Holiday Workout Calendar

We are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season. Many of us are still recovering from our Thanksgiving food comas. While others of us are beginning to indulge in the sweet treats that accompany the December holiday season. No matter what your pleasure during this time of year, it is important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. You can even lose weight before the holiday season and be ahead of the game come resolution time. We at CoreWellness know that it is tough to find time to exercise regularly this time of year. With the shopping, holiday parties, travel, work and visiting family, it can be difficult to get in the groove. That is why we are sharing this holiday calendar with you.

These are a variety of exercises designed to be down quickly when you wake up or before you go to bed. It is also a comprehensive workout plan that works out all of your muscles, plus your flexibility, balance and strengthens your core. We at CoreWellness will be doing these exercises regularly and we ask you to take the time to do them with us. That is the challenge for December.

Here at CoreWellness we encourage you to have as much fun as you can during this holiday season. However, in addition, we ask you to not forget how important a healthy and active lifestyle is. So take up the challenge, lose the weight before you put it on and make your holiday season wonderful!

Sincerely,

Dr. Grant Reffell

Our Purpose of the 12 Days of Christmas Event

12 Days of Christmas

By Dr. Grant Reffell

Dear Patient,

I wanted to take a moment and do a follow-up regarding our annual 12 Days of Christmas Celebration that we launched earlier today.

In case you haven’t been in to the office in a while – or even if you are a regular patient – I wanted to remind you what we’re doing and WHY we are celebrating the 12 days of Christmas.

This is our way of thanking you for being part of our practice. We couldn’t be happier that you’ve chosen us and are entrusting us with your health this year, which has been one of the best years in our practice. We’re trying to return some of what you’ve brought us throughout the year.

We have events coming all through the month, which are designed to thank and appreciate you for being a great patient. On our last day, December 17, 2015, we are having a big event: we’re celebrating the year and throwing a holiday bash.  When you come in for an appointment that day, we’ll have refreshments, prize giveaways, food, and raffle drawings throughout the day.

As most of you are aware, our practice philosophy is to shift the mindset of our community from a disease-based model to a wellness-based model, saving thousands of lives in the process.  We’re committed to that purpose. This is what drives us, this is why we’re here.

Have you noticed that people are waiting longer to go into the doctor and get checked?  Ignoring early warning signs because they’re afraid of the cost or just hoping they’ll be fine.

This 12 Days celebration is a way for people to come in and experience a different form of healthcare. A form where we look to put out smaller health problems before they turn into a raging forest fire.

Let me give you an example:  Recently, a patient – suffering with debilitating neck pain – was referred to us by their doctor. He was also a diabetic and insulin dependent. Here’s the thing about diabetics…even when they manage their disease well with meds and diet, their lifespan is cut short on average by 10 to 15 years. Not only is their lifespan shortened, their quality of life is very poor, especially at the end where they can develop all different kinds of health problems.  Issues like neurologic problems, (resulting in toes and feet amputated). Increased incidence of kidney failure and heart failure.  Many go blind and lose their vision.

While that suffering is obviously horrible, here’s the silver lining. When he came into us he had severe subluxations (areas of nerve interference) at the level in his spine that affects the pancreas.  So how do you think that might affect his health?  Well, it impacts how well his pancreas functions and how well he manages his diabetes as a result. Translation: this was not very good.  What if we could remove the interference and restore normal function. Could that improve the situation?  Well, here’s the cool thing that happened.  After receiving treatment from CoreWellness, he immediately started noticing changes. He was actually having a hard time managing his blood sugar because his body started working again!  He had to keep going back to his doctor because his need for insulin diminished. In fact, 6 months later, his M.D. said, “Guess what, you’re no longer diabetic!”  And now he’s off all diabetic meds and his life is completely changed.  And this is exactly why we do what we do.

 

  • This is why we’re here and so thankful
  • This is why we want to give back to you and our community

 

We love serving our patients and changing and saving people’s lives through the power of chiropractic.  There’s thousands of people in our community right now with diseases…not just diabetes, with all sorts of health challenges. Often the underlying cause is nerve interference, which affects their health and well-being. These people are literally dying and need our help and this is why we do events like this: because we have a goal.

Our goal is to acknowledge and celebrate a great year and give back to our patients, AND to pay it forward to the friends and family members of our patients. We have a goal to save 30 lives during the holiday season. This begins with our 12 Days of Xmas event. Come in and enjoy the giveaways and the party, but stay because we can help you get healthy again.
