The family that gets adjusted together stays healthy together as Dr. Lee’s family proves again and again. #familywellness #doctorslife #chirokids #adjustments #chiropracticadjustment #chiropractor #chiropracticworks #510chiro #oakland #oaklandchiropractor #kidsinoffice #healthandwellness #family
This was too cute to keep to ourselves. Here’s Dr. Lee adjusting her son, while Dr. Sarah’s and Dr. Tanaka’s son comforts him and looks on. Such a beautiful set of chiro kids! #kidfriendlyoffice #onebighappyfamily #510chiro #chirokids #oakland #pediatricchiropractic #ccep #oaklandchiropractor #familywellness #notyourtypicalchiro #officefun #bringyourkidstowork
Not all foods are created equal.
.
For example, which do you think is better for you body?
.
❓A 400 calorie piece of cake
OR
❓400 calories of broccoli (think: 2 large bunches)
.
Broccoli right?
.
And if you think about it, both do completely different things to your microbiome and your body.
.
The piece of cake has a high “caloric” density while the broccoli has a high “nutrient density”
.
The cake is full of sugar and can spike your insulin. .
The broccoli is full antioxidants and can help minimize free radicals in your body.
.
So when someone says it’s all about the calories in vs calories out...think again. Not all calories are created equally.

I love working with clients on all sides of their health to get them back to optimum functioning!
.
“Dr. Sara is not the run of the mill chiropractor- you most likely won't get the same treatment every week, and she does not stick to cracking necks.
.
Stress management, nutritional therapy, and gut health are all part of the regimen, and she does a lot of soft tissue work too.
.
She's often helped me find supplements to repair deficiencies, and it can be a surprise to recognize "hey, this is working!"

Change is one of those things that as humans, we don’t like.
.
Our body/mind wants…craves the comfort of familiarity. This happens regardless of whether the change would be good or bad for you; it wants to stay the same.
.
The unknown is dangerous for the mind!
.
But with a little progress everyday, you can make steady progress towards change. Towards a better life. Towards a new you.

❌ I’m not just another chiropractor that adjusts my clients and sends them on their way.
.
✅ I dig deeper to help you uncover “WHY” you’re having the joint and muscle pain to begin with. (Hint, it’s often your gut)
.
✅ My clients always tell me they love how I address the root of their symptoms rather than just sending them on their way and telling them to come see me again.
.
Are you tired of…
.
🔻Waking up with stiff joints and muscles?
🔻Taking hours to get “warmed” up in the morning?
🔻Spending lots of time at your chiropractors office, rather than enjoying your life?
.
Do you feel like you NEED more support and guidance than your chiropractor can provide?
.
Come see me.
.
I combine my knowledge of a chiropractic, functional medicine training, and y chef training (California Culinary Academy) to dig deeper into WHY you’re experiencing aches and pains to begin with, rather than simply provide a quick fix.
.
Interested in knowing more?
Message me for the next steps.

Google will fail you…
.
If you’re relying on it to fix your:
.
📍Heartburn
📍IBS
📍Bloating
📍Leaky Gut
.
Why?
.
You need to TEST rather than GUESS what’s really going on beneath the surface.
.
Perhaps you could have a bacterial imbalance and that one diet that you found will actually increase the imbalance.
.
Perhaps you found a supplement regime to help your heartburn but it will actually cause other imbalances to occur.
.
Perhaps you purchased an online “gut healing kit” but really it won’t do anything for you because you have a couple parasites hanging out.
.
The point is, is that you need to actually identify with testing what’s *actually* going on. Gut problems can have multiple root causes, and if you aren’t treating the *right* root cause, then you’ll get no where.

Hi everyone, it’s been awhile and I thought I’d introduce myself to all my new followers out there.
.
I’m Dr. Sara, the Gut Health Expert you never knew you needed.
.
I help people regain their vitality that they’ve thought they lost to “old-age” (HINT: don’t listen to others who say “it’s a normal part of getting older”) by helping them heal their GUT (aka the root of most dis-ease in the body!).
.
Whether that’s aches and pains, feeling tired all the time, seasonal allergies, unexpected weight gain (and stubborn weight loss), I dig deep to the root of the issue to get you feeling the best you’ve felt in years.
.
Some fun facts about me:
.
1⃣️I have a Functional Medicine and Chiropractic practice located in Uptown Oakland AND I have a virtual practice working with people all over (been wanting to work with me, but not in the Oakland area? Send me a DM!)
.
2⃣️ I have the most adorable baby in the world #alohakoa
.
3⃣️My favorite thing to do on the weekends is to try out new paleo friendly restaurants in Oakland
.
Have any health questions about gut health you’d like answered? Leave me a comment below or send me a DM!

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” Yup, you read that right!
You don’t need to reinvent the wheel.😉
.
Apply the tools you already have in place, but haven’t prioritized it enough to fit in your routine...
.
✅If you enjoy family time.
Prioritize it!
✅If you like to do you yoga.
Prioritize it!
✅If you want to start journaling in the mornings.
Prioritize it!
✅If you need a chiropractor to put you in alignment.
Prioritize it!
.
You don’t necessarily need the latest & greatest plan or tool or piece of knowledge to INSERT your desired outcome 😉
.
Rather you simply need to take ACTION with what you HAVE and what you already KNOW.
.
Agree? If so, let me know below with ‘YES’👇

Do you ever get overwhelmed by Dr. Google?
.
YES - cut out gluten because of XYZ 🤔
NO - don’t cut out gluten because of XYZ 🤔
.
YES - you must go on an extreme detox to shed weight fast 🤔
NO - you don’t have to go on an extreme detox to shed weight fast 🤔
.
YES - you must eat vegan 🤔
NO - you must eat paleo 🤔
.
YES - you must exercise every single day 🤔
NO - you shouldn’t exercise every day 🤔
.
YES - you must do cardio to lose weight 🤔
NO - cardio won’t help you lose weight 🤔
.
Confusing isn’t it?
.
With so much conflicting information out there, it’s hard to know who and what to believe.
.
👉 That’s why I strongly encourage everyone to work with a functional medicine expert to help them uncover what’s actually going  on in their body and to come up with a personalized plan of action
.
(HINT: not everything works for everyone...we’re ALL unique beings!).

When I was in my early 20's, I gained 20 lbs. and finally said 'enough is enough!'
.
I was sick and tired of…
.
➖Feeling uncomfortable in my skin
➖Experiencing such intense cravings that I would gorge myself to the point of keeling over from being full
➖Feeling like the “chubby one” of my friend groups.
.
I didn’t realize at that time I had underlying health issues. I thought there was something inherently “wrong” with me. That I just wasn’t good enough to control my cravings.
.
I grew up having undiagnosed:
.
❌IBS
❌Mood swings
❌Stubborn weight gain that I just couldn’t lose
❌Edema
❌OCD
❌Chronic allergies (they were so bad, I had to always carry tissues with me)
.
Regardless, I decided to take action and take my then-boyfriend's advice to see his nutritionist/personal trainer.
.
The personal trainer did a full assessment and recommended an anti-inflammatory diet.
.
After about 2 weeks of struggling and experiencing withdrawal symptoms from ALL of my favorite foods, the struggle finally stopped! (I now realize it was my detoxing period!)
.
Amazing results literally started to manifest!
.
✅Sleeping the best I’d ever slept
✅Cravings for sweets...GONE
✅My moods stopped surging up and down
✅I finally felt at peace for once in my life
✅Stubborn weight that I’d never been able to lose before, melted off
✅No longer had swollen ankles
✅Stopped obsessing and controlling every little detail in my life
.
All by changing my daily diet, my life changed dramatically and led me to pursue a career where I can help others find their inner peace.

Your starting point will ALWAYS be different than someone else’s.
.
👉You don’t know where they started.
👉You don’t know their health history.
👉You don’t know what they’ve done to get where they are today.
👉You don’t know how long they’ve been working to get where they are today.
.
And the bottom line?
.
Everyone is unique & everyone’s health history is uniquely theirs.
.
So only measure your progress by how much YOU’VE achieved compared to the day before.

Massage therapy and chiropractic care are both fantastic treatments for relieving pain, restoring mobility, and increasing overall health. When used together, these compatible therapies extend the health and wellness benefits of each treatment, benefiting the patient in a variety of ways. Massage therapy deals with the soft tissues, where chiropractic focuses on the nervous system, the musculoskeletal structure, and hard tissues. #massagetherapy #sportsmassage #bayareachiropractor #bayareamassage #bayareamassagetherapist #oaklandmassage #oaklandchiropractor #therapeuticmassage #bodywork #myofascialrelease #chiropracticandmassage #wellness #inlinedc

Your gut-brain have a strong connection. Certain types of bacteria in your microbiome can:
.
✖Make you more prone to anxiety or depression.
✖Have intense cravings to sweet or salty foods.
✖Potentially even the structure & function of the brain!
.
Here’s how to make sure your microbiome has more of the “good guys” rather than the “bad guys:”
.
👉Our microbiome thrives off of diversity. By getting out in nature, it allows you to be exposed to new (& different) “good” bacteria.
. 👉By eating a varied diet including lots of veggies, probiotic foods such as fermented sauerkraut, and limiting the exposure to toxins you’re helping your microbiome thrive with “good guys.”
.
Have any other questions regarding the impacts of the microbiome? DM me or comment below!

By combining my knowledge of Functional Medicine, Chiropractic, Nutrition, and Exercise, I’ve developed an integrative approach that customizes protocols specifically for each individual.
.
Although everyone is different in their biochemical and genetic structure, they are similar in that all the components which make up an individual are interconnected physically, chemically, and emotionally.

This month I’ve talked a lot about the importance of feeding yourself & your baby in a certain way that sets them up for success.
.
I want to give you a behind the scenes look of what I stock in my pantry:
.
Most everything is “Paleo” compliant.
.
This includes:
.
📍An abundance of veggies & fruits
📍A variety of nuts & seeds
📍Cans of wild caught sardines
📍Bags of sweet potatoes
📍Many different types of mild-medium paleo compliant sauces
📍Good sourced meat
.
One of the key components is the sauces to make healthy eating taste rich & flavorful...because what you eat can and should be delicious!
.
What are your pantry staples? Let me know below👇

By taking moments to be present in our daily life, it stimulates the parasympathetic system into action to help us relax & recharge.
.
So many of spend so much of our day (or life) in a constantly stressed state -- which never allows our body to heal or to be fully *healthy”
.
One of my favorite ways to tap into the present is the 4-7-8 breath.
.
4⃣ -- Breathe in deeply for 4 seconds
7⃣ -- Hold the breath for 7 seconds
8⃣ -- Release the breath slowly for 8 seconds
.
Repeat 4 times🙌
.
I challenge you to stop the scroll right now and try this breathing exercise. If you stopped & tried it, let me know below👇

📍Eczema
📍Fatigue & brain fog
📍Food sensitivities / allergies
📍Migraines
📍IBS
📍Bloating
📍Food allergies
📍RA
📍Mood swings
📍Anxiety/depression
📍ADHD
📍Thyroid problems
📍...and more.
.
Why is this happening?
.
Leaky gut (aka intestinal permeability) is where the lining of the gut becomes damaged with little “holes” or “gaps.”
.
This causes undigested food particles, toxic waste products and bacteria to “leak” (hence the term “leaky gut”), through lining and into the bloodstream.
.
These “foreign” invaders can cause your immune system to raise the alarm to your body’s defense system -- making them then “attack” these substances.
.
This in turn can cause reactions that include (but not limited to) all of the above listed symptoms.
.
Left uncheck, the cells become more and more damaged, meaning you may not be properly digesting and absorbing the food you eat….which can then lead to MORE problems such as hormonal imbalances (especially female hormones…) and a damaged and weakened immune system.
.
If you think you are currently dealing with leaky gut (this may be the case if you’re dealing with one or more of the above symptoms) and want to see how functional medicine could help you, send me a DM.

👉Mac n’ cheese
👉Hotdogs
👉Sweet cereals
👉Fish sticks
👉Corn Dogs
👉Chicken nuggets
.
When you read the above list of foods what comes to mind?
.
Your childhood? Your kid’s childhood?
.
The above foods are stereotypical “kid” food.
However, this type of food is destroying their microbiome.
.
I often see parents afraid to expose the kids to new tastes / foods.
.
However, when you expose your kids to different foods at an early age that’s what feeds their microbiome --- and then your kids will start to crave those flavors / foods as well.
.
[BONUS! Kids are often less picky when you expose them to more earlier on as well!]
.
One way I’ve been doing this with Koa is exposing him slowly to different herbs & spices (one at a time like you would introduce other types of food)
.
Next week, I’ll share how I stock my pantry to keep all members (even Koa) happy & healthy🔆

Your baby’s microbiome is important for setting up the rest of their life. Crazy huh?
.
As your baby grows & matures, so does their microbiome helping them…
.
✅Fertilize their gut for “good” bacteria to grow
✅Stabilize the gut lining (in the first 4-6 months of life, a child’s intestinal tract has spaces that leads directly to the bloodstream -- good bacteria stabilize the gaps)
✅Synthesize important vitamins & minerals necessary for growth
✅Build an excellent immune system “army”
.
What influences a child’s microbiome?
.
👉Whether or not they were delivered vaginally
👉Whether or not they were breastfed
👉The quality of food both the mother & baby consumes
.
All three of these play a massive role in how their microbiome is shaped because the mother passes along her microbiome to the baby in these three different ways.
.
And if the mother had a c-section, they should absolutely swab the newborn with the mother’s vaginal secretions. This will help them to build up their microbiome as they would have it they passed through the vaginal canal.
.
In addition, to also support their microbiome, you can also give them infant probiotics in their bottles to support their immune system.

For example, depression can be caused by many different signs/symptoms, including inflammation.
.
Similarly, a symptom such as inflammation may lead to a number of different conditions, including depression.
.
Genes, environment, and lifestyle can trigger the manifestation of each condition.

It's crucial to eat in a healthy manner during your pregnancy since what we eat directly influences the baby’s development. Not only neurologically, but also how their organs, metabolism, moods/temperament, and immune systems function.
.
Not exposing them to high inflammatory foods and providing nutrient dense whole foods undoubtedly nourishes their brains and bodies.
.
The first 3 years are clinically known to be extremely important for a baby’s development, so healthy nutrition MUST be a part of this process in order to support mental / physical growth.
.
Sugar is a huge problem in our society and it’s in so many processed foods!
.
Baby food is no exception and giving infants/toddlers too much sugar will ultimately deplete their mineral/vitamin absorption, prevent a healthy microbiome, lower brain development causing mood/tantrum disorders, skin disorders/rashes, lower immune system leading to more colds/flu, ear infections, etc.
.
Also, providing yourself with healthy whole foods (veggies/fruits, nuts/seeds, proteins, healthy fats) while breastfeeding will allow baby’s digestive system to development with fewer complications like colic, reflux, constipation, etc.
.
Feeding babies solids that aren’t sugar laden later on will be easy as well since their palate won’t be as picky.
.
Their gut microbiome is still developing the first few months of life, so make sure to expose them to a variety of healthy whole foods so they develop a palate that isn’t picky.
.
If we feed our gut microbes sugary, artificial, processed foods, it’ll produce more gut microbes that only want those types of foods! We as parents have one job: to raise healthy, happy children.
.
I believe wholeheartedly that what WE put on THEIR plates will determine their outcome.

Right now, I feel as if there is not much support or awareness about the phenomenon of postpartum depression & that there needs to be more awareness around this.
.
I think most women experience this after birth, at least on a spectrum.
In my opinion, it’s not that you either have it or you don’t, but you experience a different set of emotions, that you wouldn’t think you would feel.
.
You think that after birth you should be in this constant happy, loving state -- glorified by society, yet in reality you can feel otherwise.
.
After having Koa, I was trying my best to be conscious of this issue since I’ve been told by so many of my friends how they experienced some form of depression after having their kids.
.
I remember moments of feeling such overwhelm that it made me feel lost and alone. I felt like I couldn’t do it...I didn’t have anyone to talk about how I felt.
.
Even though things were “great”
⚬My health
⚬Koa’s health
⚬Life in general
.
I just felt like I was in a bubble. I’m not sure how else to describe it honestly...
.
Like I shouldn’t have felt anything negative since I had such an “easy” pregnancy and birth, so I felt even more alone when I experienced my lows.
.
And there shouldn’t be any shame in feeling this way, yet, there often is.
.
And I want this to change.
.
I want to open the dialogue to those who need an outlet to express what they are either currently experiencing or have experienced in the past.
.
Feel free to DM if you need a “safe-place” to express yourself.

Fiber actually is “food” for all the microorganisms in your digestive system; this “food” keeps them happy and healthy (& our digestive & immune systems).
.
So fiber = food for good bacteria
.
And if you...
.
👉Don’t get enough fiber? The “good” bacteria starts to die off, letting the “bad” bacteria take over
👉Get plenty of fiber? The “good” bacteria” crowd out the “bad” bacteria.
.
So eat more fiber! Fiber is found in high amounts in both vegetables & fruits! 🥦🍇

Once I had Koa, it was like I knew nothing.
.
I knew I needed to start eating healthy consistently because he’s basically eating what I’m eating.
.
He’s always watching & observing.
.
During my pregnancy, it was the first time my outlook was so positive on eating healthy; I didn’t feel as “restricted” as I had felt before even because I was not only eating for my health, but for his health as well. And it still feels the same way after I’ve had him.
.
And now that he’s here I haven’t exposed him to cows milk or cereal...typical so called “babyfood.”
.
He’s eats 100% paleo, and I typically make all of his food. The sweetest thing he’s had is fruit (even for his 1st birthday, he didn’t have sweets!).
.
And now, he’s not a picky eater & he doesn’t get fussy unless he’s hungry.
.
There are 3 things I attribute to this:
.
1⃣How I took care of myself before I even got pregnant; I had been on a “anti-inflammatory” diet / paleo(ish) for several years prior
2⃣Continued eating healthy (even healthier) during my pregnancy
3⃣Steered clear of “normal” babyfood” & sugar
.
This month I’m going to dive deeper into why a baby’s health the 1st year of life is so important & why it’s so important to feed yourself & feed the baby in a certain way.
.

Dr. Sara does not just perform adjustments and send you on your way (like most chiropractors)...she incorporates physical therapy, massage, and dietary recommendations to help your body react optimally every time.
.
She’s very sweet and welcoming, trustworthy and knowledgeable about all the inner-workings of the body -- I learned a lot from her and appreciate everything she taught me! ~M.K.

“I want to be happy”
“I want to spend time with my loved ones without feeling pain or tired or moody”
“I want to have enough energy to enjoy my life”
.
Does this sound like you?
.
I would say that almost all my clients that I work with say this to me in one form of another.
.
Our health is the cornerstone to the enjoyment of life.
.
One of my biggest “whys” in helping people through my functional medicine practice is to help them reconnect with their sense of happiness, spending quality time with their family, and ultimately enjoying life by helping them heal their bodies from the inside out.🤗

The estrobolome is a group of microbes that live your gut that are able to metabolize estrogen in your body.
.
This means that it helps regulate the circulation of estrogen in your body by producing an enzyme beta-glucuronidase.
.
In a healthy gut, the estrobolome produces the perfect amount of the enzyme beta-glucuronidase to balance estrogen.
.
However, if your gut is imbalanced, this leads to an imbalanced estrobolome, that can then lead to either too much estrogen or not enough that can then lead to disorders caused by too much or too little estrogen.
.
Our bodies are an amazing network of interconnected systems that all work together:🙌

Bring your awareness inside of your body <> Breath deeply <> release what’s not serving you. ✨
Bring your awareness inside of your body <> Breath deeply <> release what’s not serving you. ✨
“Life is a journey, not a destination.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
.
This is especially true about our health & the way we view it.
.
Health is a journey, not a destination.
.
And when you switch your focus to the journey, rather than the destination, you’ll find more:
.
✨Satisfaction
✨Happiness
✨Results (both immediate & long lasting)
.
Why? Because when you enjoy the process (the journey) of something, you’re more likely going to continue doing it throughout your life.
.
And when you set “destinations” or goals such as: “lose 10 lbs by….” this might set you for an initial “win” but often what happens when one reaches this goal is that they then stop doing the things that got them to the goal in the first place.

This is especially true for those who are:
📍Underweight
📍Endurance athletes
📍Extreme exercise (yes, even #crossfit !)
.
Why does this happen?
.
In short, it places extra additional stress on your body which in turn wreak havoc with your hormones, which can then lead to a missed period &/or irregular cycle.
.
Wondering if this could be you?

Send me a DM and we can chat about it!

I am so grateful for Dr. Sara.
.
I have been to a few other chiropractors in town and I thought there was no hope for my body aches.
.
I’m an athlete and have had shoulder issues for over 2 years.
.
Dr. Sara practices whole body care.
.
She’s attentive, helpful, she teaches you, and she has me feeling better in my body than I ever have.
.
Now that I’ve found her, I won’t settle for anything less. Shoulders, hips, and even my gut health have been completely realigned.
.
Thank you so much Dr. Sara.

First, what’s estrogen dominance❓
.
Estrogen dominance is when you have more estrogen than is necessary for your body. It can play a role in everything from weight gain to Hashimoto’s to infertility to more serious things such as breast cancer.
.
How does your gut play a role❓
.
Your gut plays a variety of roles in helping your body balance estrogen:
.
✅Helps regulate various mechanisms in your body to regulate estrogen levels.
✅Processes & eliminates through your intestines
✅Regulates how much estrogen you absorb from food sources.
.
Did any of these surprise you? Let me know below👇 .

❌Cramping
❌Bloating
❌Acne
❌Cravings
❌Anxiety
❌Constipation / diarrhea
❌Headaches
.
We ALL know those symptoms collectively as PMS.
.
As a culture, we can even bond with others over the symptoms of PMS. Connecting over the shared complaints that commonly seem to afflict many women during their cycle.
.
I too used to experience almost ALL of the PMS symptoms, signaling to me that “that time of the month” was coming soon. I thought it was normal, because all my other girlfriends mentioned similar problems and we bonded talking about it.
.
However, after changing up my diet and learning the principles of functional medicine, I learned through experience and from my education that it doesn’t have to be this way.
.
And if a woman’s hormones are balanced & their gut is in tip-top shape, then they shouldn’t experience PMS symptoms.
.
Want to know how functional medicine can help you banish PMS once and for all? Send me a DM -- I’d love to help.

Change; we expect it to be a simple, linear process where we go from point a to point b with ease.
.
However, the reality is it’s often a rollercoaster.
.
And when you go into the process of change (whatever you’re changing in your lifestyle), it’s helpful to know that you may have setbacks, you might move 2 steps forward, 1 step back. It’s okay.
.
There is no shame in having an eventful ride.
.
And when you expect this to happen, you release the guilt, the shame and you’re actually able to progress even faster because you’re not beating yourself up over something you “should’ve” done, that you didn’t.🙌
.
Who else agrees?

Does your regular doc say your blood work is fine?
BUT you feel far from “fine”?
.
Unfortunately, I see this all the time🤦‍
.
Traditional lab testing isn’t designed to catch you when you’re feeling “blah” only when you’re *really* sick.
.
Why?
.
Partly it’s because of the way lab ranges are “created”
.
Lab test result ranges are based on the averages of most people’s “results.”
What does that *actually* mean?
.
Well, the lab ranges/averages are from all the people who get their blood drawn at that lab.
.
Let’s think about that above statement.
Who gets their blood drawn more? Healthy people? OR sick people?🤔
.
I think you know where this is going: sick people!
.
Ultimately they do not define optimal health.
.
The lab testing & analysis I do with each and everyone one of my clients takes a deeper & more individualistic approach so that you can see how you are ACTUALLy doing and find out why you still feel like $@!?
.
I look at the whole picture,  your specific ranges for optimal functioning, and take into account your specific history & lifestyle.
.
Want to see if you could benefit from highly-specialized testing?
Send me a DM @drsarachong
.
Note: I can work with you from anywhere in the US (& you can complete the lab testing from anywhere in the US!)

How?
.
Your microbiome releases chemicals used to regulate the level of estrogen in your body.
.
Let’s take a look at the normal path of estrogen in your body👇
.
✅Estrogen’s normal path✅
Produced in ovaries ➡
Circulates through body: breasts, uterus, & other organs ➡
Liver (where it becomes inactivated) ➡
Inactivated estrogen sent to intestine ➡
Exits through stool
.
When certain “bad” intestinal bacteria is present, it “reactivates” the estrogen in your liver, allowing it to recirculate….causing an excess of estrogen in body.
.
An excess of estrogen in a woman’s body can mean:
🔴Heavier periods
🔴Increases risk of breast cancer
🔴Increases risk of uterine fibroids
🔴Weight gain
.
What’s the number one way to reduce excess estrogen?
.
Eat more veggies 🥦🥒🌶🥕

I see this time and time again with my clients.
.
It’s often a matter of:
✨Reframing
✨Focusing on abundance rather deprivation
✨Finding your “why”
.
Rather than simply “just pushing through” the diet and/or exercise

I help my clients do all of this while working with them one-on-one.
.
Interested to know more what that looks like?

Ladies, let’s talk about those crazy mood swings or headaches that precede your period.
.
Normal? Common?
.
Common - YES. It’s often brought up in girl talk, but normal? NO.
.
As a lady, it’s normal to feel different throughout your cycle, but it’s NOT normal to have drastic mood changes, anxiety, irritability, headaches and lack of patience during this time
.
I too used to get very anxious and have a headache signaling to me that “that time of the month” was coming soon. I thought it was normal, because all my other girlfriends mentioned similar stuff.
.
However, after changing up my diet and learning the principles of functional medicine, I learned through experience and from my education that it doesn’t have to be this way. And if a woman’s hormones are balanced, then they shouldn’t experience those mood swings.

“I don't have time”
“I don't have money”
“I have too many other commitments right now”
.
While I get that these can seem like REAL reasons at the time when starting out on a health journey, I want to challenge you on this.
.
What’s more important than all of this?
.
Your health.
.
You.
.
And you know what?
.
✨You deserve to feel good.
✨You are worthy of good health.
.
And when you’re feeling your best:
.
🍒You feel like you have more *time* in the day
🍒You have more energy to take your career to the next level
🍒You show up to each & every commitment with your full attention & energy.
.
I see so, so many women prioritize everything BUT themselves AND this needs to change. It’s my mission to help you transform your health and ultimately your life.
.
Are you ready?

Why is this⁉ 🤔
.
The gut & immune system have a close and intimate connection. A large portion of the immune system is located within the gut and helps teach the difference between something foreign and the body’s own tissues.
.
And when you have leaky gut (when there’s *holes* in the lining of the gut, it allows food & other particles through, triggering the immune system to send out the troops.
.
Now your body recognizes these food particles as the enemy and will send out the troops anytime you eat this food leading which leads to further immune reactions that then in turn trigger inflammation & pain.
.
And pain & inflammation are at the root of nearly almost every disease.
.
When you heal the gut and cool-down the inflammation, you start to address the root causes of the inflammation that’s manifesting as your disease.
.
Healing the gut is one of the first things I do with each and everyone of my clients.

Why is this⁉ 🤔 . The gut & immune system have a close and intimate connection. A large portion of the immune system is located within the gut and helps teach the difference between something foreign and the body’s own tissues. . And when you have leaky gut (when there’s *holes* in the lining of the gut, it allows food & other particles through, triggering the immune system to send out the troops. . Now your body recognizes these food particles as the enemy and will send out the troops anytime you eat this food leading which leads to further immune reactions that then in turn trigger inflammation & pain. . And pain & inflammation are at the root of nearly almost every disease. . When you heal the gut and cool-down the inflammation, you start to address the root causes of the inflammation that’s manifesting as your disease. . Healing the gut is one of the first things I do with each and everyone of my clients. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #holisticnutrition  #holisticnutritionist  #foodasmedicine  #ibs  #stomachache  #thyroidhealth  #hashimotos  #hashimotosdisease  #celiac  #integrativemedicine  #functionalmedicinepractitioner  #foodismedicine  #rootcause  #uptownoakland  #oakland  #oaklandchiropractor  #oaktown  #northoakland  #oaklandish  #foodthatheals  #leakygut  #leakygutsyndrome  #bloatedbelly  #stomachaches  #stomachpain  #hashimoto  #functionalmedicine  #functionalmedicinedoctor  #functionalmedicinefoods  #functionalnutrition 
Have you ever stopped to think about this⁉
.
How has your definition of healthy evolved over time?
.
My definition of healthy has evolved dramatically overtime and I know it will continue to evolve.
.
👉This definition should never be stagnant.
.
I always like to challenge my clients to open up their perception of what could be their new definition.
.
Because if you’re not feeling your best while living out your current definition of healthy, there’s a chance and room for that definition to improve so that you CAN feel your best.
.
So think about it...what’s your definition?

#Planking: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg @ruth.bader.ginsburg knows what’s up! The abdominal muscles play a huge role in stabilizing the trunk and protecting the #lowback 
1️⃣ Position the elbows directly underneath the shoulders.
2️⃣ Bring the pelvis up so it’s in-line with your head; try not to let the head hang downward like #NotoriousRBG is doing, nor let your pelvis rise up towards the ceiling.
3️⃣ Hold for as long as you can maintain good position; for some that might be 5 seconds, others maybe 5 minutes!

MODIFIED || SUPINE || CERVICAL

SIDE || POSTURE || ADAPTATION

Side posture adjustments can be some on the most profound and system shifting adjustments.  As a chiropractic student, they can also be the toughest to learn.  It took me a year and a half to BEGIN to get a feel for the complexities of this adjustment. 
Seen here with @travisstewart15 you’ll notice I’m not using my right hand as a contact, instead, it is tractioning the femur downward, along with the pelvis, slightly opening up the left sacro-iliac joint.  From here I use my sternum to drop on a left posterior sacrum.  This adjustment took years of training to develop the proper balance, body control and power necessary to clear an SI or lumbar subluxation.

This month I’m going to be shedding some light on what’s common vs. normal when it comes to your period.
.
Up first?
.
📍Let’s talk cycle length.
.
🔴Are you always guessing what day your period is going to come?
.
🔴Are you always clueless about what day your period is going to end?
.
🔴Are you always unsure if your period is even going to come this month?
.
You should be able to predict your cycle (both the full cycle & the length of your period).
.
When you’re cycle is irregular, it’s a sign that something isn’t *right* internally.
.
That could be from:
.
📍Imbalance hormones (both female hormones & others)
📍Gut imbalances such as your bacterial diversity, infections, leaky gut, etc
.
And what messes up those two things?
.
🔻Stress
🔻The foods you eat
🔻Type (or lack of) exercise
🔻Micronutrient deficiencies
🔻Sleep
.
Need help navigating & regulating your cycle? Send me a DM -- I’d love to help

🔻“I’m taking the right steps, but I’m not necessarily seeing the results.”🔻
.
Is this you?
.
I get it. It can be terribly frustrating.
.
In fact this is a common statement that clients make to me during their first appointment with me.
.
So what’s going on? Why can’t you seem to make ANY progress despite eating a clean diet and exercising and de-stressing?
.
Often it’s because there’s a missing link.
.
That’s where I come in.
.
I help you find that missing link.
.
Maybe hormones are out of balance -- which means no matter how hard you try, the weight won’t melt off.
.
Maybe there’s a gut bug (too much bad bacteria, a parasite, or other dysbiosis)
.
Or maybe you’re low in a certain nutrient that’s necessary for optimum functioning.
.
Whatever that is, you’re often not going to find it on your own. You need an outside perspective & objective testing to figure it out.
.
If you’re interested in learning more, reach out to me -- I’d love to help. 💜

ATLAS || FLICK

The Atlas bone, also known as C1, sits at the top of the spine and plays a paramount role in modulating #humanpotential 
Millions of nerve fibers pass through this bone as they ascend and descend the spinal cord.  This adjustment is given when there is a slight posterior rotation to Atlas.  This posterior rotation is determined via motion/static palpating, x-ray or even a quick visual field assessment.  When provided from a place of deep understanding and connection...this adjustment can literally “turn the lights” back on. ⚡️⚡️⚡️

OAK || LAND 
Many years from now when I look back on my years in Oakland I know I’ll feel a deep sense of gratitude and nostalgia.  This city has taught a country Wyoming boy quite a lot about life. 
Oakland has #truegrit and #madrespect for its history and traditions.  The people of #oakland love their city and all those who find their highest expression here.

Dr. Sara is the best. She is so thorough, looking at the whole body from the feet to the head, skeletal to digestion.
.
I feel very cared for during the session and afterwards I feel like a million bucks.
.
I drive from the North Bay to go see her because what she offers is so unique.
.
I always appreciate when practitioners give me a realistic timing for what to expect when my body is healing and she was able to explain why the rib would take longer to heal than a pulled muscle.
