Holistic Health in Lincoln, NE – 2017
Now more than ever before, many are opting for a holistic approach to health and wellness that takes into account all aspects of one’s lifestyle. It’s also one that employs more innovative approaches to getting the results desired. Along with traditional and modern medicine and healthcare practices across disciplines, which are always progressing, the integration of many other aspects that have tremendous potential to influence positive health outcomes and overall wellness is now commonplace. We’ve highlighted just a few examples of this that are provided by local resources
As we’ve explored in the past, Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers offers a variety of products and services that are designed for optimal weight loss and long-term maintenance of those results, all in a way that’s healthy. It’s a medically-supervised facility, meaning they can offer medical-grade products, services with medical-grade equipment, and medical professionals are overseeing the process for each individual client.
Jethro Hopkins with Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers Lincoln provides an overview of their key offerings available that are making a real difference in the health of clients:
“There are six distinct and effective weight loss systems which include meal plans with food you can buy at the grocery store and aren’t reliant on supplements alone. These were developed to meet the different lifestyle needs of each individual. Along with that core offering, we offer a few unique services that you could add into your current regimen to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Being at a healthy weight, and being able to maintain that, will in turn significantly impact your overall health and wellness and every aspect of your body that allows its systems to function properly.
With options of utilizing the LipoGenics and YOLO Curve non-invasive laser lipo systems, B12 injections, and the newest offering that will be introduced this month, a weight control patch, you can customize your weight loss program and enhance your results.
Focusing specifically on the innovative weight control patch, it’s administered in a 15-day supply and the system is comprised of a day and night patch. Since your body has different needs at those times for peak functioning, these are formulated to work with the body’s natural rhythm to deliver the right ingredients at the right times. For example, you need energy to get through the day, but not at night when you need to get a certain amount of sleep to function properly the next day. It’s a time-release, transdermal patch composed of ingredients that are all herbal. The list of what all it does is quite impressive: burn fat, support metabolism, boost energy, improve focus, suppress appetite, kill hunger, crush cravings, stabilize mood, and promote restful sleep. On top of that, there are ingredients that are known to improve cognitive function, support heart health, promote healthy skin and have anti-aging properties, maintain normal insulin levels, regulate circadian rhythm, bone and joint health, and I could go on from there.
As you can see, it’s not just for those who want to lose weight. At about 30 years old and beyond, your metabolism naturally slows down. Combine that with the stressors in life and it affects everything from cravings and binge-eating to getting a full night’s sleep. This would be a way to combat those things. Or, if you’re someone who works out all the time, a lot of the ingredients in this patch will protect and promote lean muscle growth. I could go on and on, but to sum it up, it’s a healthy and effective way to support your continued wellness on so many different levels.”
Then there’s Bryan LifePointe, an extension of Bryan Health, with a wide variety of wellness offerings. “At Bryan LifePointe, we are committed to providing our community with high quality, very personalized care, honoring the patient/client’s physical, emotional, spiritual, and social needs,” says Sally Hempel with Bryan LifePointe. “We offer community fitness memberships as well as specialized opportunities for members or non-members. This includes programs that focus on balance, strength and stability, exercise education for individuals with neurological diseases, and coaching for weight loss. Bryan LifePointe also offers outpatient rehabilitation in cardiac/pulmonary and physical therapy. Our access to resources on the clinical and non-clinical side allows us to help individuals with specific health concerns get the direction, motivation, and coaching they need
We also offer corporate wellness options to community businesses such as quarterly fitness- wellness screenings, flu shot clinics, lunch and learn educational offerings which include cooking and /or exercise demonstrations and even personal training and group exercise options on-site. We can also arrange for corporate discounts on a variety of short-term and long-term fitness memberships. With fun community events like our annual Indoor triathlon, ‘mad mile’ event, and preparatory running clinics, we can even customize a corporate incentive or contest for the employees within a business. Businesses that provide opportunities for improving employee wellness show less absenteeism and more energy, productivity, focus, and healthy longevity among their staff. Additionally, many businesses can partner with insurance companies to provide employee incentives for reaching and maintaining healthy levels of fitness resulting in lowered insurance premiums.
With so many resources here at Bryan LifePointe, we can provide solutions or referrals for anyone wanting to improve their lifestyle.”
Indeed, health and wellness isn’t just an individual endeavor anymore. Support in the workplace and from employers is far more prevalent, with large and small companies alike investing in programs and initiatives that support the continued wellbeing of employees.
“On average employees spend 45-60 hours of their week engaged in work activities,” says Katie Tiedeman with Proactive Solutions, Inc. “I can’t think of a better place to have a positive influence on health and wellness. We provide onsite services for employers here in the Lincoln community and surrounding areas, which include but are not limited to: physical therapy, massage therapy, ergonomics, safety, prevention, and wellness program development and management. This keeps their employees healthy and safe while being productive at work.
There are two key areas that we find many employers focusing on – sedentary work habits, such as prolonged computer work, and highly repetitive work, which is common with manufacturing or material handling positions. This lack of balance on either end of the spectrum causes employees to feel the detrimental effects of their work lifestyle. Our methods of intervention focus on counteracting these variables and restoring balance, resulting in a more productive and healthy worker.
The key is balance, whether you are at work or in your personal life. This is unique for each individual so you can’t have a one-size-fits-all program, which many try to implement. If you have a diverse professional team that can employ a uniquely custom program, the results will speak for themselves. This is what we do for our clients and practice in our lives. If you can achieve balance you will be happier, healthier and live a better quality life.”
To sum it up, holistic health is an approach to life that considers the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. Of course, these are just a select few of the many possibilities that would apply to that concept to consider, and it all depends on what’s right for you. It definitely never hurts to consult with the professionals, ask plenty of questions, and see what’s out there. Also, stay mindful of your lifestyle and how you interact with your environment, because that will help determine the approach that will deliver optimal results. Keep learning and focusing on doing your very best to support your continued health and wellness, because the more you know, the more you can do for your own benefit!
