Design notes: list of providersWe want this to look much more inviting—these chairs are way too cold.Had thoughts about putting the actual providers in the chairs. Could be an actual live picture with a sample patient in the red chair or could be a group of providers sitting around the table.
Based on a survey of our patients, we found a consistent theme of what frustrates them about conventional medicine practices and why they felt First Health was different. Since identifying these 4 key areas, we have made a consistent effort to offer our absolute best to:Listen attentively to Patients concernsMake the patient the driving force as the center of careMinimize wait timesExplain all the options for treatment, and give the patient choices (medications, alternative medicine, nutritional medicine/supplementation, psychological medicine)
When it comes to weight control, we can explain pretty much everything down to a T. STRESS is the one X-Factor. Kathy is a great example of this. She struggled in the first 4 weeks of the program (when everyone else was putting up huge numbers). What was holding her back was stress from her job, family, and further compounded by not losing weight. She started seeing the LCPC and went on a tear more consistent than we’ve ever seen. She lost 2# per week over 24 consecutive weeks.

This concept of “Pre-Anything”• NOT
COVERED ON INSURANCE• Your on your own (run/bike/swim)• Most of us -“school knowledge” of exercise, (which could be dangerous) ….“leagues?”• If it was so good, why didn’t we stick with it last new years resolution?• No place that’s close enough, cheap enough, new enough or fast enough….but what about your neighborhood?....or backyard!!
Started with the “5-O” mentality•
You are driving along, 5-10 mph over the speed limit (like everyone else) and suddenly a police car on the side of the road. Then everyone slows down and behaves themselves.• You are not feeling any symptoms, 10-20 pounds overweight (like everyone else) and suddenly you have a physical. Then you eat right and plan to exercise more to make the change to be healthy.
Facts:• Coronary heart disease (CHD)
caused about 1 of every 5 deaths in the United States in 2005.• It is estimated that 195, 000 silent first myocardial infarctions occur each year.• About every 25 seconds, an American will have a coronary event, and about every minute someone will die from one. (8th slide, 60 seconds per slide-8 americans just died)
Pre-Diabetics…should we act now?• Aka-Impaired
glucose tolerance, impaired fasting glucose.• People with pre-diabetes have a 1.5-fold risk of cardiovascular disease compared to people with normal blood glucose. (vs 2-4 fold DM)• Damage to end organs suspected to already occur with pre-diabetes• With ignorance, move onto diabetes in 10y
Who gets tested?• Overweight and
45 or older• Normal weight and 45 or older (ask)• Overweight and younger than 45 +(ask) + = HBP, Low HDL, High Tri, Fam Hx DM Gest DM, Birth of > 9lb baby,
Who benefits from testing• Doctor
- no…I can fill your spot with another• Drug company – yes (muuuhaha)• Family - yes…observed habits rub off• Patient - yes…a chance to change …knowledge is power …eventually gonna need it!
A Quicky with DrRic• Strategic
locations (arms reach when tired)• Plan ahead (pick shop day and load up)• Shop full, meals for the week• Always have a “go to” reward– (food/snack/meal)• Water! (tea or warm water to start the day)• Must have a F/V/G in sight• Prep a “Go-Bag”• Set a deadline for success/help
Hiking Forest Preserves are tax
supported The fastest hikers burn as much as the slowest jogger Slowing down can bring awareness of natureMoving away technology cultivates the relaxation response (think kids!) Less chances for strain and overuse injury Watch solitude (injury, dehydration, disorientation) Watch animals
Walking Stats and “gettin sweaty”MET’s
(cal/kg/hr):Sitting for this lecture0.0 mph - 1Walking2.0 mph - 91 1 min mile=60mph2.5 mph - 873.0 mph - 85 2 min mile=30mph3.5 mph - 83 3 min mile=20mph4.0 mph - 91 4 min mile=15mph4.5 mph - 102 5 min mile=12mph5.0 mph – 116 10min mile=6mphRunning 12min mile=5mph5.0 mph - 116 15min mile=4mph6.0 mph - 121 20min mile=3mph7.0 mph - 119 25min mile=2.5m/h8.0 mph - 1239.0 mph - 12110.0 mph - 131 Bottom line….fastest walker burns like the slowest jogger…but less knee pain
Timing of hikes• Weather.com• Weather.gov•
Sunrise/sunset• 1-3 times a week for 30-60 minutes (30+minutes to achieve RR)• Or add resistance to burn more calories (depending on your indivi resting metabol rate)• Diabetics can increase to 5x week for glucose control• Hypertensives can use breathwork twice a day
Yoga! Ancient art Popularity high
Low injury riskExcellent at cultivating relaxation response Excellent flexibility/power/balance Detoxing Still Growing with multiple styles
A Quicky with DrRic IN
IN OUT OUTIntructions: Thumb to index then middle with inhale, ring then pinky with exhale, repeat. Slow, concentrate on matching breath to thumb movement….continue for 5-10 mnutes.
Halloween Treats:• Avoid giving out
any candy combination of milk or white chocolate with nuts or peanut butter - they rank highest in calories.• Chocolate with mint or marshmallows has fewer calories, as do caramels and non-chocolate candy such as licorice, taffy, lollipops and flavored fruit candies. However, these are cavity-makers and not very nutritious.• Consider giving out small squares of dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa, little boxes of organic raisins, organic granola bars, organic fruit wraps or snack-size bags of air-popped popcorn. www.DrWeil.com
