Here’s how his Dress for Health success program works:

Diet

Rest

Exercise

Stress reduction

Supplementation

We talk in detail about implementing all of these lifestyle choices, but we dive deep into our discussion on stress reduction because it is the most underestimated pillar of health.

There are three types of stressors: 

  1. Mental/Emotional
  2. Trauma
  3. Chemical/Biochemical/Environment

Some of these stressors we can eliminated from our lives and others, in this modern world, we simply can’t. Here are tools Reed Davis and Kylene Terhune use to counter stress: 

Live in gratitude. Choose positivity. Seek chiropractic care for alignment and for the nervous system. Try acupuncture to get your energy flowing. When you’re well enough, work out. Have good posture, balance and flexibility. On the biochemical side, diet is huge because eating foods that you’re sensitive to is a tremendous stressor. 

Let’s talk about hormones. We know that cortisol breaks the body down and keeps your blood sugar elevated. That’s why DHEA, the master regulator to cortisol, is so vital. FDNs find healing opportunities more quickly, that doctors aren’t diagnosing. An FDN’s protocol addresses every cell, tissue, organ and system.
