PUSH Fitness & Rehabiliation
Welcome !! PUSH-as-Rx ®™ is leading the field with laser focus supporting our youth sport programs. The PUSH-as-Rx ®™ System is a sport specific athletic program designed by a strength-agility coach and physiology doctor with a combined 40 years of experience working with extreme athletes. At its core, the program is the multidisciplinary study of reactive agility, body mechanics and extreme motion dynamics. Through continuous and detailed assessments of the athletes in motion and while under direct supervised stress loads, a clear quantitative picture of body dynamics emerges. Exposure to the biomechanical vulnerabilities are presented to our team. Immediately, we adjust our methods for our athletes in order to optimize performance. This highly adaptive system with continual dynamic adjustments has helped many of our athletes come back faster, stronger, and ready post injury while safely minimizing recovery times. Results demonstrate clear improved agility, speed, decreased reaction time with greatly improved postural-torque mechanics. PUSH-as-Rx ®™ offers specialized extreme performance enhancements to our athletes no matter the age.

Epigenetics Nutritional Influence And Life Length | El Paso, Tx.

Can nutritional epigenetics influence how we age and our life length? El Paso, Tx. Dr. Jimenez presents data on nutrition’s influence on longevity.

Longevity or our length of life is dictated by complex factors which include our genetic blueprint, age, health, and environment. This includes nutrition.

Gene-nutrient interactions are, partly responsible for regulating metabolic processes that begin and develop conditions like obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

A mechanism of nutrient-gene interaction is the epigenetic involvement of inherited patterns of changes, that are maintained by other mechanisms in DNA, Fig. 1a

Two of these mechanisms are:

These mechanisms are considered to play important roles in the way we are shaped physiologically and in the way we age.

The Epigenome

  • Think of DNA in the genome like the hardware of a phone that perform specific actions.
  • The epigenome is the software, (program/s), that tells the hardware what to do.

The Epigenome Becomes Altered Through Nutrition

Nutrition influences the epigenetic mechanisms responsible for phenotype/trait establishment.

Aging is partly regulated by epigenetic mechanisms.

Although still not fully proven but on the right track was that the availability of folate improved the regeneration of the adult central nervous system after injury through an epigenetic mechanism.

Epigenetic Aging

During the last couple of years, we witnessed a remarkable increase in the number of studies addressing the relationship between epigenetic alterations and aging. Still in its infancy, and still focusing mainly on brain aging, this research clearly indicated that epigenetic mechanisms are not only responsible, in part, for the aging process but they are also dynamically related with memory formation and maintenance.

The manipulation of the epigenome for memory improvement became possible through changes in histone acetylation.

The Link: Nutrition & Longevity

Research to complete the chain of nutrition to epigenetic changes to how we age is still ongoing.

Present knowledge of the epigenetic roles in nutrition having to do with longevity/aging relies on the structure of three components:

  • Nutritionally guided epigenetic modification
  • Age-related epigenetic changes
  • Comprehensive knowledge of both of these components

The first two are being developed quickly, but the third is the most demanding in terms of design, time, allocation, and cost. This takes more time. But technology/humanity is moving along at a quick pace, as well, because at the end of the day we all want to be healthy.

Therefore, Nutritional intervention, when applied at critical periods (e.g., embryonic and fetal development) is having a profound effect as to how the epigenome gets shaped.

When considering the beginning of chronic disease/s, being able to fight disease/s with food sounds like a win-win. If epigenetic/genomic nutrition can help in figuring out what we need to beat disease/s, then let’s go!
