A huge movement for natural health is underway and it is impacting the largest of all athletic events. Several USA National governing bodies that represent Olympic groups and have traditionally been dominated by conventional medicine and government based nutritional recommendations have embraced a group of natural health doctors. Maximized Living is showing the rest of the world on the greatest stage that natural healthcare is the wave of the future.
Orlando-based Maximized Living is sending more than 100 of their top chiropractors in North America to help members of USA Judo, Weightlifting, Wrestling and Sitting Volleyball to go for gold in London. This represents the first time that a large group of natural health doctors have traveled with Olympic bodies to represent the country at the games.
In an unprecedented showing, Maximized Living is sending the largest contingent of elite chiropractors to London to support and care for USA’s elite athletes. Since 2009, the Maximized Living Sports Council has worked closely with several National Governing Bodies to deliver a holistic, whole-athlete approach to wellness that incorporates chiropractic principles, balanced nutrition, mental preparedness and fitness programs designed to build strength, endurance and enhanced performance.
The Olympics are no longer dominated by the medical community
The Olympics have typically been dominated by medical teams that dispense drugs and steroid injections and devalue nutrition and natural lifestyle interventions. Many over-the counter, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are given out during the Olympic events as athletes will do whatever it takes within the governing body rules to perform. For the first time ever there is a significant voice for natural health and wellness in the Olympic circle.
