Dr. William Sears:  (Yes, that Dr. Sears 👶!)  The Healthy Brain Book

Dr. William Sears: (Yes, that Dr. Sears 👶!) The Healthy Brain Book

April 27, 2020

Family doctor and expert, Dr. William Sears, is the co-author of the new book : The Healthy Brain Book.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five U.S. adults will experience mental illness in their lifetime, and most end up paying more for treatment than they would for physical health conditions. While this is an alarming truth, family Doctor William Sears and neurologist Vincent F. Fortanasce - have positive news: it’s possible to treat and even prevent the onset of mental illness with the right medication or even WITHOUT medication at all, ultimately leading to a better quality of life.

In their groundbreaking new book, The Healthy Brain Book, Sears and Fortanasce team up to bring readers an all-ages guide to having a calmer, happier, sharper brain, whether experiencing “normal” mental and emotional burnout or wrestling with diagnosed illness. In the Healthy Brain Book, the authors explain that while the brain is a complex organ, the diverse set of mental and emotional challenges we have stem from one cause: imbalance in the brain.

The Healthy Brain Book will help those struggling to thrive and get their brain back in balance by teaching readers the following:

What we think can change how well we think

The role of inflammation in the brain, and how food and activity can reverse it

What drugs can enhance or suppress the brain’s ability to heal itself

Actionable advice to improve your memory, promote learning, and prevent common brain ailments

How to personalize the book’s tools for your unique brain

Patrick Vellner: CrossFit, Hard Work and “We are Not Machines”

Patrick Vellner: CrossFit, Hard Work and “We are Not Machines”

October 30, 2019

Meredith Atwood (@SwimBikeMom) and her co-host, ten-year old Stella (@Wods4Kids), interview CrossFit Games podium athlete and all-around nice guy, Patrick Vellner.

Vellner says, "[As a] part time chiropractor in Nanaimo, Canada, I have an extensive sports background and have been competing in Crossfit since 2013. I made it to the games for the first time in 2015 on Team Crossfit Plateau 2 and have since been back in 2016-2019 to compete as an individual finishing on the podium 3 times. Crossfit has been a great way for me to challenge myself and escape from my studies while also being a great outlet for my competitiveness."
