Cheers to all of us who have experienced the rush of victory and endured the consequence of calamity. Spent hours training, sweating, breaking skin and sometimes spirit. Time is both a friend and foe, as years of perseverance, sprout seeds of different skills, higher levels… Racing against repetitive use of our joints, memories embedded in our fascia. Few reach the highest competitions, receive the highest honors… But MANY many of us just go day in and day out working maybe a less talented body, possibly without an opportunity for excellence. One man’s outstanding triumph may be another man’s trash. But in the arena or on the field we are equals, everyday the battle is within your mind, your body. Just like the highest paid athlete in the world. All levels of athletes need to manage nutrition, workouts and rest.
“Art for art’s sake,” is so old it’s original professor will remain a mystery, but it is engrained within our nature. The hours spent clearing the mind and invigorating the body are limitless. In yoga they call it “the practice” it has no end, everyday is a journey, all you can do is just keep practicing.
Athletes Balance Life is a personal narrative from my perspective with the background an extensive education; and experience working with a variety of athletes in sports medicine, treating a myriad of chronic and acute pathologies. It will also question our society’s insane onslaught of poisons administered to adults, children and animals. The culture that has created a standard of depleted adrenal glands, dehydrated, congested liver, anxiety ridden and also depressed individuals has made every day spent with the intention of health as an achievement.
