This page was designed to help our patients in making better choices with products that can help improve their health.
Unfortunately we live in a world where we are constantly inundated by all types of chemical insults, from the products we put in our skin and body to the products that we use in our homes and offices.
Vital Protein (Vegetarian Pure Pea protein Isolate): best vegetarian protein powder
According to McMasters University research we should be ingesting 1.3 to 1.8 grams per Kg of body weight for stimulating maximal protein synthesis. Remember you can not heal tissue properly without enough protein in your system.
If you do not like greens or having a hard time getting nutrients in, just add a small tbsp of this powder to your breakfast smoothie 🙂
- Organic Seaweed Complex – Organic Wild Cultivated Seaweed With Added Organic Superfoods – Chlorella, Spirulina, Artichoke, Green Tea , Ashwagandha Root (commonly called Indian ginseng) and Cayenne – 100 Capsules
If you are more serious about building muscle then Whey isolate will help you recover muscle mass faster than Pea protein.
Yerba Mate is a superfood which contains all the necessary nutrients to sustain life and has also been used as an appetite suppressant by dieticians. A much better choice than your regular coffee. High in Mateine and not caffeine. The perfect drink for the beginning of an energetic and productive day.
Do not forget that men should drink 3 to 4 litres of water a day and women 2.5 to 3 litres a day
Exercise Equipment and other
The Chiropractic Pillow
The Chiropractic Pillow (After researching many pillows out there I came across this pillow which I personally use and highly recommend for side sleepers and back sleepers, I found it has the best support)
This relatively inexpensive cushion can help you have better posture when having to sit for long periods of time. It also helps to engage your core muscles when sitting and to constantly hydrate the lumbar disc for someone with a lower back disc injury. I never sit at home in front of the computer or in seminar without mine.
Lying Foam Roller exercises are useful for decreasing tension on midback area and reducing thoracic Kyphosis
Simply lay on your back on this foam roller for 5 to 10 mins each day. If advised to do this exercise, wait for exercise instructions by email.
Meglio – EVA Foam Roller – Perfect for Muscle Massage after Fitness Workouts, Running Cycling – Target Back, Calf & Hamstring Pain – Includes Exercise Guide
I recommend this type of pillow for people suffering with low back pain due to SI joint or disc injury and would like to sleep on their side.
