Total Body Wellness

It is our goal at Blue Heron Dentistry to promote overall total body wellness while advising patients with nutrition, exercise and weight management. Everything in the body is linked. The health of the mouth affects the body systemically as the health of the body affects the mouth. Periodontal disease is linked to cardiovascular disease, cancers, stillbirths and more. High cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity can lead to cardiovascular disease, Type II Diabetes, stroke, and osteoarthritis. Oral bacteria can affect the heart when entered into the blood stream, attaching to fatty plaques in the coronary arteries and contributing to clot formation. Blood clots can obstruct normal blood flow, restricting the amount of nutrients and oxygen required for the heart to function properly which can lead to heart attacks.

Poor health leads to not only feeling poorly physically but also plays a big role on ones mental state of mind. A poor state of mind can lead to depression, low self-esteem, and lack of confidence that affects all aspects of your life. Feeling good physically leads to feeling good mentally.

The rate of childhood obesity is at an all-time high with obesity rates tripling over the past 30 years. Childhood obesity leads to higher risk factors for cardiovascular disease and puts added stress on the heart. Along with the obesity factor, studies have shown overweight children suffer more from low self esteem, self-confidence, and are more susceptible to bullying and ridicule which can lead to depression and suicides.

Children and adolescents who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and social and physical problems. Healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and physical activity can significantly lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related health issues.

AdvoCare offers a wide range of different products that revitalize and nourish your body. Personally used by top professionals including Dr. Maze.

This is my Story: “I began working out at Better Bodies of Medina in 2008 when my husband, Chris, gifted me 25 personal training sessions for Christmas. It was paid for and scheduled so there was no excuse for not using the sessions. I had two sessions per week and began losing inches without changing my diet. I continued my personal training and added in kettlebell workouts and cross fit classes to my workout schedule. I have three boys that were fairly big at birth and my personal trainer told me I probably would not see a difference in my “ab” area unless I saw a plastic surgeon and had a tummy tuck. As much as that sounded appealing for the look it did not sound appealing for the cost and going through the procedure. In October of 2009 I began using AdvoCare products at the recommendation of my trainer. In the spring of 2010 I decided I wanted to do the AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge. I asked my husband to do it with me for accountability and moral support. As it turned out, the results were life changing for Chris as well.”

“I lost seven pounds during the 24-Day Challenge and felt great. During those 24 days, the challenge is, can you have the discipline to watch what you eat to receive the maximum benefits? I was told, and it’s true, that after completing the challenge your body craves the foods that are healthier for you and denies the foods that are not. This is important because now your body and the mindset go into a shifting pattern from ordinary to extraordinary. This is a lifestyle change. Completing the challenge is just the beginning. The fundamental is to continue taking the supplements your body does not properly receive from our foods (Your omegas, your calcium’s, your corplex, your probiotics, etc.) to sustain the proper nutrition. Too many times people lose weight and feel great during the challenge then abruptly stop everything. I have continued to take my supplements, and during this journey, I have continued to lose weight, build muscle and feel great. The affect of feeling great and looking good physically has a major effect on how one feels mentally.”

“Maintaining good health is important to me, for my family and my patients. I promote total body wellness at my dental office. Lifestyle habits have caused an increase in obesity, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and Type II diabetes that has a total affect on the mouth and my abilities to give my patients the best care that I can offer. Do you have the “will”, “determination”, and the “discipline” to conquer your fears and put the excuses behind you and begin moving forward on your journey? In life, everyone will suffer one of two pains: the pain of discipline that weighs ounces or the pain of regret that weighs tons. Nobody has a problem until they have a health problem. Take care of yourself for you as well as your family and the ones you love.”
