PUSH Fitness & Rehabiliation
Welcome !! PUSH-as-Rx ®™ is leading the field with laser focus supporting our youth sport programs. The PUSH-as-Rx ®™ System is a sport specific athletic program designed by a strength-agility coach and physiology doctor with a combined 40 years of experience working with extreme athletes. At its core, the program is the multidisciplinary study of reactive agility, body mechanics and extreme motion dynamics. Through continuous and detailed assessments of the athletes in motion and while under direct supervised stress loads, a clear quantitative picture of body dynamics emerges. Exposure to the biomechanical vulnerabilities are presented to our team. Immediately, we adjust our methods for our athletes in order to optimize performance. This highly adaptive system with continual dynamic adjustments has helped many of our athletes come back faster, stronger, and ready post injury while safely minimizing recovery times. Results demonstrate clear improved agility, speed, decreased reaction time with greatly improved postural-torque mechanics. PUSH-as-Rx ®™ offers specialized extreme performance enhancements to our athletes no matter the age.

A Deeper Look Into The Neural Zoomer

The Neural Zoomer Plus is a blood test that is designed to test 48 neurological antigens. When testing for these antigens, the results these markers find can help physicians determine if a patient is at risk for neurological conditions later on. To view last week’s article containing a full list of the signs and 48 markers, click here.

 

When a patient comes to us with concerns, we listen very intently and make sure our patient’s concerns are addressed. More often than not, patients reveal they are having issues that relate to neurological declines, such as, muscle spasms or memory loss. With symptoms like these, the patient is referred to get a Neural Zoomer Plus.

Once we receive the results back, it is compiled into a large report. From here, we assess it and go through all of the markers with an additional team of clinicians. An example of a few of the markers tested in a Neural Zoomer Plus is below. One can see that this patient has an elevated Anti-Voltage gated potassium channel. Anti- Voltage-gated potassium channels are responsible for multiple cellular processes such as cell growth and differentiation.

After analyzing the data, we take these findings and create a treatment protocol that is specific to each patient and their lifestyle. Due to the fact that this patient shows an elevation in specific markers, there are certain adjustments we make in order to help prevent or reverse the cognitive and physical effects of neurological disorders.

 

The first step we take is to change the diet of the patient. Many foods are not properly digested, leading to gut inflammation, which further leads to leaky gut which then enters the bloodstream and into the blood-brain barrier, causing neurological decline. In order to reverse these effects, we want to make sure the gut is getting the proper nutrients from foods that will not cause inflammation. For this patient, we recommend the Wahls Protocol.

 

The second step we take is to usually get the patient involved in a more active lifestyle. By having this patient start to exercise with activities like yoga, it can improve the state of mind and their mind-body connection.

 

The third step is usually nutraceuticals. These are supplements that will naturally help the body and brain with no addictive or harsh chemicals. With every patient, the nutraceuticals and amount needed vary depending on their specific body. For this case, we recommend:

N-acetyl-L-cysteine: (NAC) is a precursor to glutathione, the bodys most important cellularantioxidant. NAC supplements have been shown to increase cellular glutathione levels.

Vitamins B12, B6, and folate: These are metabolic cofactors important for cellular metabolism and maintenance of all tissue cell types, but particularly important to nerve cells. Deficiencies inB12 or folate can raise homocysteine levels, which have been associated with a higher risk forvascular disease and dementia.

Alpha Lipoic Acid: (ALA) is an essential cofactor in normal cellular metabolism and cellularenergy production.

Vitamin C and vitamin E: Can reverse symptoms caused by vitamin C and Edeficiencies.

 

As mentioned before, each patient is different and their lab work shows varying needs. However, with the Neural Zoomer Plus, we are able to get ahold of these symptoms, create a personalized treatment plan, and get them under control.

 

As one can see, the data and knowledge we gain from these tests are truly eye-opening and give us an early advantage to help reverse or aid in prevention methods. We take the needs and concerns of every patient very seriously and work extremely hard to figure out the right method of treatment for them. Our goal is to help ensure that this lifestyle change is as smooth and easy on the patient as possible so they can get back to enjoying the activities they love and spending time with loved ones. The transition into a new lifestyle can be stressful, but with the information we gain from the tests, the knowledge we use from the doctor, and the willingness to change from the patient, we are set up to be the best team you can have to get your life back! – Kenna Vaughn, Senior Health Coach
