Strength Training At The Gym

Strength Training At The Gym

Resistance exercise is necessary for a variety of reasons, like building and retaining muscle as well as being especially helpful in losing weight to achieve a lean, healthy body. When done properly, weight resistance can also help build stronger bones and healthy joints.

Hope For A Runner's Knee Pain

Hope For A Runner's Knee Pain

“I gave up running for one year because of knee problems. I was afraid my joints couldn’t take it and that I was causing long term damage. But Dr. Brad was optimistic that it was do-able for me to run.

His treatment was so simple and now I’m running again. My knees are dramatically improved and there are indications that the ligaments around my knees are realigning for better support!

I heartily recommend Dr. Brad. He cares and can improve what otherwise might seem hopeless. He believes running when appropriately supported is possible throughout life.”

Can Hope Clinic Heal My Disease or Condition?

Can Hope Clinic Heal My Disease or Condition?

Can Hope Clinic heal my disease or condition?

With new patients coming through our clinic doors all the time, this is a question we are often asked. From your very first appointment, we want our patients to know that at Hope Clinic we don't cure diseases, instead our goal is to improve how your genetics are expressed. This is called epigenetics.

You see, your body was meant to heal itself. The only reason you are alive right now is because your body is constantly healing and repairing itself. At Hope Clinic we depend entirely on epigenetics to allow the healing process. Almost all of our genetic expression is from a pool of genes—not just from one gene that’s unchangeable.

After millions of dollars of research invested into mapping the human genome that’s why we’re no closer to solving most diseases. The truth is most of those diseases have already been solved. Your body already has a way to heal and repair most conditions.

So how do you stimulate this healing and repair?

That’s a great question. The good news is there are many ways to help stimulate your body to heal and repair itself. Your body is an organism made up of many wonderful and complex facets—you are so much more than just a grouping of several parts.

To help stimulate your body’s healing and repairing, we see if we can find what’s inhibiting your natural healing process and then take away that inhibition. If we can do that then the possibilities for healing and repairing are almost endless.

One thing we do know is your body needs certain things to repair itself. One of those things is appropriate movement like exercise. Another thing your body needs is appropriate building blocks like nutrients. In order to carry out digestion and energy production, you must have the appropriate solvent in the form of water.

Another thing we know about your body is how you think about yourself, the people around you, and your environment all play a role in how your body repairs itself. Believe it or not, the amount of rejection, support, stress, warm fuzzies, laughter, and fear you experience in your daily life also play an important role in your body’s ability to repair.

Your body’s healing process is unique

At Hope Clinic we’ve found that sometimes all it takes is changing one area that’s imbalanced. Other times we’ve had to change multiple areas or support multiple aspects of healing in order for your body to repair itself. You are a unique individual and have become dependent on unique processes in order to heal yourself. We are here to try to help you find what will work for you.

If we can elicit better genetic expression, these positive epigenetics can allow amazing healing to happen.
