Hovig’s partner, Dr. Shannon Burke, spoke of the practice’s mission of promoting wellness in the prevention of illness. She says stress (physical, emotional, & chemical) is the cause of 90% of all disease and triples the risk of getting cancer.
Most people take medicine treating conditions that could have been prevented earlier by following a plan with the letters DREAM.
Diet: Drink 1/2 your body weight in water ounces daily, eat lots of colors of foods except white.
Rest: 7-8 hours sleep each night.
Exercise: 20-30 minutes daily if it raises heart rate.
Alignment of spine: correct posture so your lungs get enough oxygen.
Mental/Emotional health: Under stress, inhale for 4 seconds, hold for 7 sec, and exhale for 8 seconds.
Give Hovig a call if he or anyone in his practice can help you make changes that will prevent future problems.
