Are You Measuring Health By How You Feel?

Most of us judge our health by how we feel.

When you feel “fine”, you are able to go to work, take care of the kids, get the groceries…

But how do you factor in:

  • nights of restless sleep
  • the 3 coffees you need each morning
  • the medications you take for daily headaches and
  • the muscle relaxants you pop to ease your back ache?

This is how a lot of people are living their every day…

Does any of this sound familiar?

If this is the life you’re living, I’m here to tell you there’s a better way.

Judging your health by how you feel is not only inaccurate it can be dangerous

Chronically living your life this way puts a tremendous amount of stress on your body.

With the constant use of stimulants, regular use of pain killers combined with a lack of sleep…

Your body rarely has the opportunity to heal, repair and grow…

This is when we see people begin to experience:

  • Inflammation (and pain)
  • chronic disease
  • major changes or decline in their health

Not a great place to be, but all too familiar for many.

Often, when we see people living their life this way for the past 10, 20 or even 30+ years… this is their “new normal”… meaning they don’t know life can be any different.

If you are reading this and it is hitting home… your body has done an amazing job to adapt to the toxic stew you’ve placed it in.

The fact the body can withstand so much abuse just highlights the ability of the body to adapt.

At the powerhouse, we have a different approach

At The Powerhouse, we are actually able to measure a lot of these adaptations using advanced technology we use in our Bio-Structural Examination.

Because how you feel is not an accurate measure of your health… we suggest getting checked to see how well your body is adapting to your current lifestyle.

This is the power of our Bio-Structural Examination… to help determine your body’s current level of function and to see if a core problem exists that we can help with.

Below is an example of one of the tests we use called Heart Rate Variability or HRV. We use HRV to determine how adaptable your body is.

You can see in the examples, looking at the white box (your score).

The person on the left with moderate levels of dysfunction would be a score we’d expect from the history we described above.

The score on the right is someone with a much higher level of function and overall health.
