Maximized Living: A group of natural health doctors lead our Olympic athletesby Dr. David Jockers
(NaturalNews) A huge movement for natural health is underway and it is impacting the largest of all athletic events. Several USA National governing bodies that represent Olympic groups and have traditionally been dominated by conventional medicine and government based nutritional recommendations have embraced a group of natural health doctors. Maximized Living is showing the rest of the world on the greatest stage that natural healthcare is the wave of the future.
Orlando-based Maximized Living is sending more than 100 of their top chiropractors in North America to help members of USA Judo, Weightlifting, Wrestling and Sitting Volleyball to go for gold in London. This represents the first time that a large group of natural health doctors have traveled with Olympic bodies to represent the country at the games.
In an unprecedented showing, Maximized Living is sending the largest contingent of elite chiropractors to London to support and care for USA's elite athletes. Since 2009, the Maximized Living Sports Council has worked closely with several National Governing Bodies to deliver a holistic, whole-athlete approach to wellness that incorporates chiropractic principles, balanced nutrition, mental preparedness and fitness programs designed to build strength, endurance and enhanced performance.
The Olympics are no longer dominated by the medical communityThe Olympics have typically been dominated by medical teams that dispense drugs and steroid injections and devalue nutrition and natural lifestyle interventions. Many over-the counter, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are given out during the Olympic events as athletes will do whatever it takes within the governing body rules to perform. For the first time ever there is a significant voice for natural health and wellness in the Olympic circle.
Jose Rodriguez, USA Judo Executive Director, commented, "This is about making our athletes stronger, faster and sustainably successful. Our partnership with ML has given us the education, support and comprehensive principles to increase stamina, strength and perform at their pinnacle in London."
Terry Steiner, 2012 USA Women's National Coach commented, "I have seen a tremendous value in our partnership as it pertains to the performances of our Olympic team. I can further see the positive, life-long effects these doctors can have on their lives after London."
The ML Sports Council was a vision incubated from Maximized Living founder, Dr. Ben Lerner. Dr. Lerner, a former all-American wrestler and founder of Maximized Living bridged a gap in performance management by creating the first and largest certified network of chiropractors trained in whole-athlete care. Through the Maximized Living Five Essentials, Maximized Living Sports Council doctors are certified in advanced chiropractic techniques, nutrition, detoxification, exercise and mental preparedness.
"We're proud of the selfless commitment our Sports Council doctors have made in helping USA's elite compete at the highest level, achieve peak performance, recover faster, sustain fewer injuries and reach for the gold. Our Sports Council's success is a testament to the performance and recuperative aspects of chiropractic and the critical role Maximized Living doctors play in helping to unlock the full human potential," said Maximized Living CEO, Shel Hart.
Maximized Living is a healthcare delivery system now being utilized by USA's National Governing Bodies for Wrestling, Judo, Weightlifting, Sitting Volleyball, the 2010 Major League Soccer World Champions, Colorado Rapids, US Martial Arts, the International Brazilian Jujitsu Federation, many top MMA teams, and hundreds of athletes and teams at all levels. ML doctors covered more than 50 national and international events this year and will be traveling with athletes to London in July 2012.
