Birthing Without Fear
Aug 2 2022
Birthing Without Fear
Birthing Without Fear Although childbirth is an incredibly rewarding and emotional experience, there’s a lot of fear associated with it. Whether you’re worried about the pain, how long it will take, if everything will go smoothly etc., the unknown can be overwhelming. In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Ashley Berlin sits down with her sister-in-law, Erin Berlin to discuss birthing without fear. Tune in to hear the experienced moms explain the difference between a natural birth vs. hospital birth, having a positive mindset throughout the experience, advice & more. When it comes to giving birth, most people picture it happening in a hospital, but that isn’t the only option. Natural births (or home births) are a holistic alternative and usually occur in the mother’s home. “It’s important for women to feel safe when they are giving birth,” says Erin. Whether you feel most comfortable having doctors around in a hospital, or having a midwife in your home, that’s completely up to you. Erin explains she was planning on having her child in the hospital until she watched her friend have a home birth. After seeing how peaceful the whole process was, Erin decided to have all 3 of her child’s births at home. One of the most important factors when it comes to the success of your child’s birth has to do with your mindset. There are a lot of times during birth that your plan doesn’t go the way you had hoped, and what you need to remember is that’s completely normal! Rather than focusing on the negatives, focus on the positives! Your body was designed to reproduce and go through this process. At the end of it you will have the best reward, a beautiful baby - so cherish the moment. You CAN do this! Be sure to share this episode with your friends or loved ones who are either pregnant or wanting to have children in the future.

Chiropractic Patient Turned Chiropractor
Jul 19 2022
Chiropractic Patient Turned Chiropractor
Chiropractic Patient Turned Chiropractor In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Ryan Berlin sits down with his brother Dr. Justin Berlin to discuss how becoming a chiropractic patient inspired him to become a chiropractor. Like many other families in the U.S., the Berlin brothers received care from the medical model. After multiple rounds of medications, procedures, etc. failed to help, their parents decided to try a more natural approach to healing with chiropractic care. Dr. Justin explains the first time he realized the incredible power chiropractic care had on the body was when it helped him heal from two major injuries in high school. This inspired him to pursue chiropractic where he went on to receive his degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa. Since then, he’s practiced chiropractic in Troy, Michigan for 17 years. Dr. Justin urges anyone listening to invest in chiropractic care now to correct and prevent health problems from worsening in the future. He explains that if you’re a current chiropractic patient who hasn’t experienced major changes, to be consistent. Lastly, Dr. Justin and Dr. Ryan stress to share your chiropractic journey with others in an effort to change their lives for the better.

The Truth About Heart Health
Jul 12 2022
The Truth About Heart Health
The Truth About Heart Health According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Although you may think “it’ll never happen to me,” you’d be surprised. Heart disease affects 1 in 4 people, which means if you have 4 people in your household, one of you is statistically going to be a trisk. In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, hosts Dr. Ryan and Ashley Berlin discuss critical heart research which may be contrary to what you’ve heard in the past. Let’s dive deeper into the truth about heart health. While most people think cholesterol is bad for you and causes heart disease, that isn’t the case. The oxidation of cholesterol is what causes heart disease, not cholesterol itself. Dr. Ryan explains that “cholesterol is one of the most unbelievable repair substances in the body” and helps to mend blood vessels, the brain, etc. Due to the environment and current state of the world, most people are stuck in a sympathetic, fight or flight state which can be damaging to the heart. The combination of chronic stress, toxins in the standard American diet, lack of exercise, and spinal misalignment all create a recipe for an unhealthy heart.

Finding Motivation to Exercise
Jul 5 2022
Finding Motivation to Exercise
Finding Motivation to Exercise Moving your body is an extremely important aspect of staying healthy but unfortunately, a lot of people skip it. If you find yourself saying, “I don’t have time to exercise,” “I have a bad knee,” “I’ll do it tomorrow” or “the gym is too far,” today’s episode is a must-listen. Hear former Crossfit gym owners, Dr. Ryan and Ashley Berlin explain how to get off the couch and find motivation to exercise. No matter your age, health, or shape - it's never too late to start exercising. While that may sound intimidating, it’s not what you think. Exercise for everyone doesn’t mean running a marathon, it means intentionally moving, sweating, and ridding your body of toxins everyday. Dr. Ryan says that one of the worst things you could do for your health is to stop moving your body because it slows you down and may cause your health to decline. Instead, keep exercise… Simple Fancy workout equipment isn’t always needed to get the job done. Make things simple by using the equipment you have on-hand at home.Fun Don’t force yourself to run if you hate running. Instead try doing a workout you enjoy such as Zumba, biking, or swimming.Easy/Accessible When you’re not motivated to exercise, make the components that go into exercising so easy that you can’t pass it up. Is your gym a mile down the road? Did you set out your exercise clothes the night before? Do you have weights sitting in your room? The exercise program we as MaxLiving believe meets all those criteria is MaxT3. MaxT3 is a high intensity interval training program (HIIT) which can help you get maximum results in just 12 minutes. This short, yet effective at-home workout focuses on 3 principles of type, time, tempo and can be adjusted to secure specific results. If you’re someone with a super busy schedule, looking to maintain your health but also spend quality time with your family, MaxT3 is the answer.

Avoiding Toxins at Home
Jun 28 2022
Avoiding Toxins at Home
Avoiding Toxins at Home You can workout everyday, eat healthy, get adjusted, have a positive mindset and still have trouble overcoming your health problems due to toxin exposure. From the time you wake up, brush your teeth, take a shower, clean the kitchen, etc. you’ve encountered countless dangerous chemicals that could damage your health. In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Ryan and Ashley Berlin discuss avoiding toxins at home. Dr. Ryan says the most toxic places in your house are most likely the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room, and that’s not because of what goes on in those rooms. Many cleaning products such as air freshener, toilet bowl cleaner, wipes, etc. contain harmful toxins that can negatively affect your health. Rather than replacing your current cleaning products all at once, start one room at a time. If you’re in the kitchen, replace your hand and dish soap first, then go deeper to assess what you’re spraying on the countertop. After conquering the kitchen, move on to the next room. Ashley’s holy grail non-toxic cleaning products are baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and white vinegar. Not only are these products cheaper than status quo cleaning products, but they’re also safer for your body too. If you’re worried about your previous exposure to toxins and want to detoxify your body, be sure to check out Detox System and Max Cleanse.

Strategies to Overcome Picky Eating
Jun 21 2022
Strategies to Overcome Picky Eating
Strategies to Overcome Picky Eating Do you have a child who refuses to eat anything other than chips, pizza, mac and cheese, etc.? Tune in to today’s new episode of The MaxLiving Podcast to hear Dr. Ryan and Ashley Berlin’s strategies to overcome picky eating. As a parent, you have a big impact on your child’s health. At the end of the day, children aren’t capable of making well-rounded nutritional decisions, therefore it's your job to do so for them. Although this may sound like a daunting task, it doesn’t have to be. The first step to making nutritional decisions for your family is to set a standard. Ask yourself: What does eating healthy look like for your family? If you don’t know what that looks like, that’s okay - but it’s time to set a standard in order to achieve it. “You get caught in a cycle of repetition of bad habits not because you don’t wish to change, but because you don’t have the right standard,” -Ashley Berlin. When it comes to eating healthy, the environment you’re in plays a stronger role than motivation. Your child may want to eat healthy, but if there are unhealthy snacks in the pantry, their motivation for eating healthy is most likely going to fall to the wayside. The best thing you can do as a parent is get rid of unhealthy food, drinks, and snacks in your house so there’s no temptation. Instead of having chips on the counter for the kids to snack on, put fruits and vegetables out. We hope today’s episode gave you the tools and resources you need to help your child overcome picky eating habits.

10 Tips for Staying Healthy on Vacation
10 Tips for Staying Healthy on Vacation Do you feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? So frequently people go on vacation and eat unhealthy food, sleep poorly, and workout less, causing them to feel exhausted when they get back. In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, we’ll discuss 10 tips to stay healthy on vacation so you can come back feeling refreshed and re-energized when you get back home. #1. Plan your healthy food ahead of time If you know you’re going to be in a car or plane for a long time on the way to your destination, pack healthy snacks or map out healthy restaurants you want to stop at. The last thing you want to do is to be hungry on your drive and have your only option be fast food.#2. If there aren’t healthy food options near you, bring your own Go to the grocery store or bring a cooler with food already packed to make healthy eating easier. That way you have healthy meal options in case you can’t find any options near your vacation spot.#3. Stay hydrated After being in the sun all day, doing activities you aren’t normally doing, or drinking alcohol, you need to be intentional about drinking plenty of water. Dr. Ryan suggests drinking half your body weight in oz.#4. Be a good role model for your children Whether you realize it or not, your children mimic a lot of your behaviors. Be mindful of your actions so you can be the best version of yourself for your kids.#5. Be aware of people’s needs and desires If you’re traveling with another family/individual with food allergies for example, be accommodating.#6. Plan for the unexpected Traveling and being in a new environment may bring challenges such as sickness, or allergies. Be sure to pack supplements to prevent and maintain your health if you do happen to get sick.#7. Get enough sleep Sleep is essential for energy and feeling your best on vacation. Be mindful of when your activities start the next day so you get a full 8 hours of sleep beforehand. If you have a hard time falling asleep on vacation, try our Sleep & Mood Formula.#8. Schedule time to exercise Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you have to take a vacation from exercising & staying healthy. Our MaxT3 workout program allows you to get in a great workout in a short amount of time.#9. Limit technology Although technology is great for GPS, watching movies on the plane, etc. try your best to limit your screen time while on vacation. Instead, focus on making memories with the ones who matter most.#10. Schedule your missed adjustments before/after your trip Traveling can be hard on your body, therefore it’s important to make up your missed chiropractic adjustment appointments so your body can function and heal properly.

Chiropractic Care and Sleep
May 24 2022
Chiropractic Care and Sleep
Chiropractic Care and Sleep Getting enough sleep is essential to maintaining a healthy body. According to the CDC, adults who get less than 7 hours of sleep are more likely to report 10 chronic health conditions than those who do get enough sleep. If you’re having trouble sleeping, be sure to listen to today’s new episode to hear about chiropractic care and sleep, what type of pillow to sleep on, how to know if your mattress is good or bad, & more! Dr. Ryan mentions that one of the most frequently mentioned benefits of getting regular chiropractic adjustments is improved sleep. They tell a story of a family with twin babies who before chiropractic care never slept more than 4 hours a night, but after getting adjusted slept a full 8 hours. Chiropractic adjustments help restore blood flow and remove interference in the nervous system, allowing the body to not only function better, but feel better so you can relax into a deeper sleep. Your body heals when you sleep - therefore it’s crucial you have a healthy sleeping environment to heal optimally. If you find yourself waking up sore or in pain pretty regularly, consider your mattress, pillow, or position you’re sleeping. Most people don’t know that the average mattress only lasts around 7-10 years, so you may want to invest in a new one if you’ve had it for longer. When it comes to pillows, you want a pillow that is spinal neutral - AKA one that supports the neck and lower back. Dr. Ryan and Ashley suggest sleeping with foam rolls under the neck and lower back to keep that spinal neutral position. If you know someone who struggles with getting a good night’s sleep, share this episode with them!

How to Relieve Seasonal Allergies Naturally
May 17 2022
How to Relieve Seasonal Allergies Naturally
How to Relieve Seasonal Allergies Naturally Did you know 50 million Americans suffer from allergies? With spring being in full swing, we’re here to help give you action steps for how to relieve seasonal allergies naturally. Dr. Ryan explains there are 5 signs of life known in chiropractic which are: Assimilation - the process of eating and turning food into living cells.Excretion - the process of getting rid of toxicity so you can keep the body cleansed.Adaptation - the ability for your body to deal with something and overcome it.Growth - the ability for living things to grow.Reproduction - the process of cells reproducing. This is extremely relevant to allergies because they occur as a result of your body not being able to adapt to its environment. For example, Dr. Ryan and Ashley went on a trip to Oklahoma where they came into contact with a new environment (ie: pollen) which was very different from the pollen in their home state of Ohio. As a result, their immune system response was weak and they were unable to adapt, causing allergy symptoms such as a runny nose, or watery eyes. In order to give the body what it needs to overcome allergies, we have to go back to the 5 signs of life. To get to the adaptation stage, you have to finish assimilation and excretion first, which means you have to be intentional about what you’re putting in your body (ie: healthy food) to ensure it can be supported in the best way possible for assimilation. It’s also important to minimize toxicity through excretion so nothing stands in the way of proper functioning. The last and most important key to adaptation is to take care of your spine and nervous system. By getting your spine checked regularly, we can remove interference in the body and help it function at its full potential.

Healing Your Body with Chiropractic Care
May 3 2022
Healing Your Body with Chiropractic Care
Healing Your Body with Chiropractic Care Everyone deserves to live a healthy life where they can function at their full potential. Why is it though that so many of us live with health issues and don’t do anything about it until it’s too late? In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, guest host and MaxLiving Dr. Marc Surprenant and Dr. Neil Cohen of Sherman College of Chiropractic, discuss healing your body with chiropractic care. When it comes to the functioning of the body, it’s important to know that it’s never stagnant at 100% - it’s always fluctuating and moving. One way to maintain as close to full function as possible is to prioritize the health of your spine and nervous system through chiropractic care. The nervous system is the master controller of the body, meaning it controls the functioning of all of the body’s systems, organs, etc. If there’s interference in the nervous system, the body won’t function or heal properly, causing symptoms and disease to occur. Dr. Neil Cohen explains it best, “health isn’t how you feel… it’s how you heal.” Although you may feel fine, there could be interference in your body that will not only restrict your ability to function and heal, but also hold you back from being the best you can be. Take responsibility for your health with chiropractic care. Through the use of x-rays, we can pinpoint the interference in your body and perform specific chiropractic adjustments to remove it, allowing you to heal and function properly. If you know someone struggling with a health issue, share this episode with them to give insight on how chiropractic can help them feel their best. Available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and more!

As the baby grows, the spine shifts out of alignment causing interference that limits the body’s ability to function and heal properly. These interferences can be shown in the form of symptoms such as back pain, acid reflux, increased stress, etc. - leaving mom’s feeling uncomfortable and exhausted. The good news is, chiropractic care may be able to help relieve the discomforts of pregnancy in a gentle and safe way so you can feel your best!

How to Heal a Diagnosis Naturally Most people when learning their medical diagnosis put their health in the hands of their doctor, letting them decide what options they should take.

Dr. Cameron’s 3 steps for how to heal a diagnosis naturally: Reflect While time doesn’t seem to be on your side after first hearing your diagnosis, Dr. Cameron strongly suggests that you pause and reflect on what likely caused your condition. By doing so, you can pinpoint the interference and take the necessary steps to remove it. If you skip this step, you run the risk of not getting better due to the fact that you might still be implementing poor habits that continue to damage your health.Research After reflecting and being honest with yourself, it’s vital to research all possible options and outcomes of your diagnosis. Don’t just research the common options that you hear most people do - dig deep and search for natural alternatives.Go all in Once you’ve done your research and have a road map of what you plan on doing, the most important step you can take is to go all in completely and commit to your plan.

How Chiropractic Can Help Ear Infections

How Chiropractic Can Help Ear Infections
How Chiropractic Can Help Ear Infections Nothing’s worse than seeing your child in pain from an ear infection and not knowing how to help them. In today’s episode, Dr. Ryan and Ashley Berlin discuss how chiropractic care can help ear infections, as well as natural remedies to heal otitis media (ear infections). According to the Boston Children’s Hospital, 80% of children have been diagnosed with at least 1 ear infection by the time they are 3 years of age. The traditional route people take when their child has an ear infection is to take them to a doctor, leaving only 2 treatment options available: antibiotics or tubes put in the ears. Although these may seem reasonable, what you don’t realize is that they aren’t fixing the root cause of the ear infection. Spinal misalignment (otherwise known as subluxation), creates interference such as ear infections in the body. This puts pressure on the nerves causing the ear to not function properly. Dr. Ryan mentions a study published in the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics where researchers found there was a strong correlation between chiropractic adjustments and healing of otitis media. If you know someone who struggles with ear infections, share this episode with them - it could change their quality of life for the better!
