Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah: You’re invited to do the Whole Life Challenge

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Whole Life Challenge CrossFit Savannah

Guest Post by Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah

Fitness Starts With Habits – These Habits work together to make you healthier and happier

We see it everyday. Folks ready to get back in shape, wanting to tone up and have more energy. Parents wanting to be a healthy role model for their kids. As a gym owner – I want that for you too! But what many people do not realize is that before you can get fit – you’ve gotta get healthy.

Being healthy is way more than breaking a sweat a few times a week, although that’s parts of it. Healthy means much more than looking leaner and seeing some muscle. It’s the ability to participate in fully in life, deal with stress, and fight illness. If you rely on medications to make it through the day, you are not healthy. If you need to have a glass of wine or sleep aid to fall asleep, you are not healthy. If you rely on an energy drink at 2pm, that is not healthy either.

Health and fitness are part of the same continuum. Once you are healthy – it’s easy to keep doing the same things to get fit. How do we help people get there? Practice the OTHER habits too.

Activity – sweat for at least 10 minutes a day
Mobility – functional stretching for 10 minutes a day
Hydration – get half your body weight in ounces of water
Nutrition – eat a wide variety of God-made food
Sleep – like 7 hours, develop a consistent routine
Reflection – Pat attention to the wisdom of your own experience

Starting THIS Saturday, Jan. 20 2018, we’ll be practicing these habits for 6 weeks as a team. It’s called the Whole Life Challenge and we welcome anyone that wants to dive into these habits to join us.

Click here join our team.

We kickoff the Challenge at 10am Sat. Jan. 20. Want more information on getting your family happier and healthier? Visit crossfithyperformance.com for more information.

Savannah dentists: Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry

Dogwood Smiles Dentistry Pediatric Dentists Savannah

Board-certified pediatric dentist Dr. Krista Hinchey of Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry in Savannah often receives questions regarding oral sedation and its use in their dental office.

At Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry, they pride themselves on being a Preventative office, in that they offer cleanings and regularly schedule hygiene visits with detailed instructions on diet and how to prevent cavities. When dental decay does occur, Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry offers three different options at their office for treating those pesky “sugar bugs.”

Here is Dr. Krista’s info on sedation.

What is Sedation and how is it used in a Dental setting at Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry?

1. Small procedures in cooperative children can often be done with local anesthesia (numbing jelly) with or without nitrous oxide. The most common form of sedation we routinely use in our office is nitrous oxide (laughing gas). This is given through a small breathing mask which is placed over the child’s nose. The AAPD recognizes this technique as a very safe, effective technique to help relax your child during treatment.

2. Slightly more involved procedures in certain children will require the use of an oral medication along with nitrous oxide to help relax your child and facilitate cooperation with the procedure. These procedures are scheduled carefully, require your child to be fasting the morning of the procedure, and also be free of any respiratory symptoms in the two weeks preceding the procedure. We monitor the children during sedation with a pulse oximeter and heart monitor. All of our personnel at Dogwood have been trained in oral sedation. We do NOT hold children down and will stop the procedure if the child is uncomfortable.

3. Some young children require extensive amount of dental work. In these situations, it is difficult for a small child to cooperate fully. For these children, we may recommend treating your child in the operating room at a hospital under general anesthesia.

If you have any questions regarding any of these methods, please feel free to give Dogwood a call, 912-298-5437. Dr. Krista would LOVE for you to call Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry your dental home.
