In this age of medicine, we are sometimes overwhelmed by the vast amount of man-made remedies to our natural problems. Got a cold? Here’s some drugs. Allergies? Take shots. High cholesterol/blood pressure/blood sugar? Drugs, drugs, drugs. Both OTC and prescription medications seem as natural as inhaling and exhaling these days. But is medicating really necessary?
EarthFIT Medication… Fitness and Nutrition
I was put on meds at a young age, oblivious to the long term consequences. They could have potentially destroyed my life; in fact, they almost did. I am lucky that I didn’t become a statistic; rather, I woke up at one point and did what ever I needed to do to take my life back. I see so many people who are on meds nowadays struggling, and this is one of the many reasons I ended up in health and fitness industry: to help people wake up and take control of their lives, to help people get their physical and mental health back. People are waking up to the fact that these meds are dangerous and can have dire consequences. Many people who come in for a fitness assessment say things like, “I refuse to go on medication.”. They are searching for holistic approaches.
Hey EF Fam,

Countless times a week, “Coach, whats a good, quick snack to eat before my workout?”
In todays world they’re are numerous supplemental ”pre-workouts” on the market. So which one is right for you? Don’t feel pressured by shiny labels and mis-educated salespeople trying to make a buck at your expense. Now I’m not saying all these powdery substances are bad, is their a better way to obtain the benefits? perhaps. Is there a healthier way to retain the reward that these supplements produce? DEFINITELY. Educate yourself on these products before you buy blind.
Breaking News: As of last month the World Health Organization (WHO) lowered their daily sugar intake recommendations from 10 percent of calorie count to 5 percent. That works out to about 6 teaspoons — or 25 grams — of sugar per day for someone whose BMI is between 18-25 (considered normal).
Most people aim to have a well-maintained body. But some of them for various reasons are not willing to do any physical activity, and just prefer to lessen their food intake by partaking in off-the-wall diet food programs. Yet there are numerous people who do not know how to implement proper diet and nutrition. The long and short of it is that eating starvation diet food recipes or crash cleanses to lose weight would only work if you remain consistent. And no one can consistently starve himself/herself or go on a life long cleanse. The kicker is that diets work best if you accompany it with Beaufort SC personal training or a physical activity.
Hey EF Fam,
The last email should have gotten the message across about the importance of gut health. The great news about all this is that gut health can be improved fairly easily.
Health and fitness have not always been part of my life before I became a Beaufort Personal Trainer, as a kid I never played any sports and while my parents ate better than most of the population, it still was not great (Don’t get me started on what my grandparents fed me!). What changed was that about 10 years ago, my parents decided to start eating healthier and buying organic foods, and while I complained because I could no longer have Honey Bunches of Oats in the morning, I started feeling better and my grades in school went up. I was interested in why I was feeling better and had better grades, so being the nerd I am and having Google at my finger tips I started doing my own research. After reading tons of articles, I became obsessed with the health benefits of tea and really focused on learning more about the chemical found in green tea, EGCG. I was amazed at the research showing the anti-cancer and heart health benefits from green tea as well as the ability to increase fat burning (because every teenage boy wants that six pack). After tea, I became interested in holistic medicine and how different plants had medical properties. I bought a huge book on medicinal herbs and started learning as much as I could about herbal medicine.
