Episode #473 What would your dream wellness wish for your children be? If everything you put in is diet, your life and health have been dramatically influenced by so much more than what’s on the end of your fork. Today’s guest has insight for the Flipping50 community of health influencers – those who impact so many generations.
The best time to begin working on your health in midlife and old age is when you’re young. But hindsight being what it is, you know that already right? And you also know it’s never too late.
But the truth is today’s kids have more challenges than we ever did. They won’t go outside and play all day ‘til dark, riding their bikes freely all over town. We were the last generation to play kickball ‘til our parents called us and to say “outside” to “where are you going?” and have that be enough.
We were also the last generation to have eaten fast food more as a treat than the norm. While we may have watched TV, we had to get up and change the channel. We didn’t play on computers or text our parents from downstairs.
And we weren’t obese in large numbers by the time we reached elementary school. But today it’s different. And if a child is obese or has chronic health issues, the chances they’ll thrive as an adult is dramatically reduced.
My guest today wants to do something about that. You may have children or youth still at home. You may have grandchildren or will. You and I touch the lives of those who care for youth. I think this episode will appeal to you if you’re a mother, grandmother, or someone who loves children and values health.
My guest is the author of a new book call D.R.E.A.M. Wellness and I think you’ll want to know more – and potentially share it.
Dr. Brian Stenzler has been helping parents raise healthy children since 1998 when he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree with honors in Clinical Excellence and a Master’s in Sports Health Science in 1999, both from Life University. He is a certified Ultimate Life Tool (ULT) Facilitator & Corporate Consultant and uses that tool (along with his formal education and 23+ years of clinical experience) to help families create more health, happiness and stronger relationships.
Dr. Stenzler has served his profession in numerous roles including President of the California Chiropractic Association from 2014-2016. Aside from participating on the wellness team for the USGA where he takes care of the professional golfers, caddies and volunteers at the US Open Championship tournaments each year, he works with hundreds of families in his three DREAM Wellness centers that are filled with newborns, toddlers, teenagers… and their parents (& grandparents) too!
Early in his career, Dr. Stenzler was an adjunct neurology instructor for the New York College for Health Professions in Long Island, NY. Dr. Stenzler uses his vast knowledge of the nervous system in everything he does, whether it be adjusting patients, providing lifestyle advice or speaking to audiences.
