Episode 50: Treat Problems, Not Symptoms!

(1:00) Episode Number 50!!! 

(1:00) We are going up against the corporate medical system, which we believe is killing your health care.. 

(1:45) Ultimately the corporate medical symptom is finding the symptom and not the PROBLEM!!

(2:45) We need to take a step back and identify the initial problem, and treat the problem and not just prescribe medication. 

(4:00) Real examples of Treating the Problem and NOT just the symptom!

(4:45) Jenni explains about a recent patient who was complaining about foot pain but was only given shoe inserts to fix the problem… But guess what, that was just a bandaid and we need to find out what caused that foot pain to begin with.

(6:00) Back pain is our bread and butter, but we even specialize in foot and elbow pain!

(7:00) There are over 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments in the foot, Yet they all have a purpose! 

(8:00) If you don’t use it, you lose it!

(9:40) Why do people feel the need to use orthodox?

(13:00) Back pain is not easy but it’s so simple! 

(13:40) 9.9/10 The reason we experience back pain is because of glute and core inefficiency!

(14:30) We need to retrain and get the brain to help the muscles.

(15:30) Back pain goes in stages, we have to get you to use your muscles and get them firing, laying down, standing up,  when you are walking, and functionally ( getting out of your car etc.)

(17:56) Jenni explains how medications that are given to her clients are ultimately hurting them even more.. 

(18:45) A Lot of different things will affect your bowels! 

(19:20) So many areas that can lead to your GI Symptoms.

(20:20) Your gut is your second brain! 

(21:30) Statin medications can actually increase blood sugar.

(22:35) You have control to beat genetics! You can literally turn your genes on and off. 

(24:00) Cholesterol is the vehicle that pulls nutrients, and blood is how nutrients are transferred across your whole entire body.

(25:00) Statins starve your brain, yet no one wants to talk about it.

(26:50) Invest in your health and learn to live a healthier lifestyle. 

(28:00) Happy 50th episode and remember to treat the problems, NOT symptoms!

Dr. Jake Berman

After graduating from the University of Florida, Dr. Jake Berman, PT, DPT sought out mentorship first from Bob Seton in Destin, FL and then from Aaron Robles in Jacksonville, FL. Both of these mentors have 20+ years of experience helping people keep active and mobile so they can enjoy high quality active lifestyles. What Jake found was that back pain was by far the most debilitating pain and the highest factor leading to decreased physical activity later in life. These experiences are what inspired Jake to specialize in helping people aged 50+ keep active, mobile and pain free despite the aging process. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to alleviate somebody’s back pain so that they can get back to living their best life- especially in Naples! Over the years of helping 100’s of people aged 65-75 become stronger and pain free, one thing for sure has become apparent: “he who rests rots”. Jake is a firm believer that we become stiff then old, not old then stiff. Seriously, think about it...
