Understanding Toxins and Detox

In our increasingly industrialized world, chemicals are everywhere. We have relied upon these chemicals to help us grow our food, provide our water supply, build our homes and cure our diseases. In many ways, these chemicals have been crucial to our development and growth in modern society. But many doctors and researchers have also recognized that some of these chemicals can be toxic and cause serious health problems for those who are exposed to them over time.

Understanding Healthy Weight and Weight Loss

If you're like many people, you've tried a number of fad diets and various fitness regimes to reach a healthy weight. After some initial success, you probably hit a plateau and became discouraged. From that point, it's easy to give up and slide back into bad habits. Before you know it, you're back to your old ways, eating the foods that you know drain your energy and letting your exercise plans slip. After going through this frustrating cycle a few times, it's no wonder many people give up on l

Understanding the Mind-Body Connection

There is a deep and inextricable link between the mind and the body, and it's vital to understand this connection in order to start or continue on your path to wellness. Perhaps you feel like you've forgotten what it's like to feel energetic, experience joy, or even desire something strongly. When you experience mood changes, it can be difficult to feel motivated to do much or, conversely, you can become overwhelmed by the minutiae of life. This can negatively affect our relationships, work per

Understanding Migraines and Headaches

Migraines and headaches can be difficult to understand. Despite the many years — and many dollars — spent researching causes and seeking solutions, people around the world still suffer from debilitating headaches that can come on without warning and last for days. Migraines can come in many shapes and forms, but they all include serious pain and fatigue. Perhaps the most challenging part of migraines is their unpredictability. Migraine sufferers can go from feeling completely healthy and vibran

Understanding Your Thyroid Health

Do you often find yourself looking for tasks you can (continue to) push off? How about that pile of undone to-dos still lurking on your desk? Did you used to have the motivation and the stamina to get things done, but now you find yourself exhausted and barely able to get through the day? Or maybe you've been carrying around some extra weight you've tried to get rid of more times than you can remember. But no matter how many changes you make to your diet and how much exercise you do, you just c

Understanding Inflammation

If you've been suffering from a chronic health condition, then you have probably heard about inflammation. You may even be on medication currently that reduces the amount of inflammation in your body. 90% of all disease in the body increases inflammation in one way or another. But what is inflammation exactly, and why does it occur? Understanding the role of inflammation in your overall health is key to taking back control of your life. The truth is, inflammation is never the root cause of your

Understanding Adrenal Fatigue

There is perhaps no greater stress than not having the energy to be present in your life —and when you are struggling with your adrenals, the more stress you are under, the worse it gets. Having adrenal function problems, also known as adrenal fatigue, can be debilitating, making even everyday tasks difficult. However, if you have the information you need to understand the imbalances in your body, you can restore your systems and feel well again...

Understanding Chronic Fatigue

Fatigue is something everyone experiences at some point or another. Usually, after catching up on some rest over a weekend or taking a much-needed vacation, you can recharge your battery. But when fatigue becomes a constant in your life, it can feel like nothing is going right. Having the energy you need to get your work done and spend quality time with your loved ones is essential to a healthy life. When fatigue has worn you down, it can be a struggle to get even the bare minimum done. And of...

Understanding Bacterial Overgrowth

Do you feel like you keep bouncing from one health issue to another without experiencing what it's like to feel completely well? Perhaps you started with a sinus infection, but once you received treatment for it, you got a yeast infection. After treating the yeast infection, you find yourself suffering from constipation and bloating. When you try to address that issue, you realize that you have a stubborn fungal infection on your big toenail. Once the fungal infection is under control...

Inflammation and Joint Pain: Causes and Recovery

Joints compose some of the most complex parts of the human body. Muscles, bones, cartilage, ligaments, fascia, and tendons all work together at a joint to make it possible to enjoy a full range of motion for a task as simple as walking. However, it is only after experiencing serious elbow or shoulder pain, for example, that the importance of healthy joints is recognized. Once there is a level of pain that inhibits regular physical activity, other issues may arise as well. Understanding the sou

How To Get New Members At Your Gym Without Offering Discounts

So if you don’t offer discounts you might be wondering, how do I get new members in the doors of my gym? Savvy gym owners know how to offer so much value that they don’t need to discount their memberships because they have people knocking down their gym doors through the following incentives: The biggest argument in favor of offering LBOs is to convince members to join who are afraid of making a financial commitment such as a year-long contract, or cancelation fees.

Add Value To Your Gym With A Nutrition Program

No matter how often you work out, if your diet is lacking in nutritional value, you’re less likely to see results.

Forward Looking For Affiliate Owners: CrossFit Health

As a CrossFit Affiliate Owner, you’re likely familiar with the young, buff, ‘kool-aid drinking’ CrossFit athlete stereotype.
