There are about thirty-five Level IV CHEK practitioners in the world, and probably for good reason. The program to pass this level is nothing short of tedious, time consuming and a complete shock to the nervous system because practicing on this level has no room for error.
Vacations are about relaxing and enjoying yourself, taking a break and bringing balance back into your life. You don’t need to take all your kettlebells and 1/3 of the Wholefoods produce department with you in order to stay on track or keep your health at optimal levels. Stressing about it does more harm than eating diner french fries would, so chill out.
Weight loss is such a perpetually growing concern that has been the source of investigation since the 1960’s. But after decades of every diet plan, cleanse product, fat burning supplement, shakes, bars, celebrity fitness gurus, and every new pop-up “medical weight loss” center… the problem continues to climb. Why? Because none of that crap works! It’s a commercialized system preying on the desperation of its public consumers, and when you buy a fat burning supplement, all you’re getting is a well-advertised bottle of tree dust with a photoshopped image of a sponsored fitness competitor (who probably doesn’t even take that supplement) that will make you crap your pants.
It’s so hard and very frustrating when we follow the rules of rehabilitation and continue to run into the same challenges with pain and injury. When we follow every doctor’s advice and see the referred specialists and commit ourselves to the weeks and months of physical therapy along with all assigned exercises and stretching. When we have to keep making those appointments with the chiropractor again, or the massage therapist or acupuncturist. But yet, we still face resurfacing problems, pain, inflammation, repeat injury and returning pain in the same places and often new places. Why? For the love of G-d, whyyyyy?
