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.

Is It Really Autoimmunity? | El Paso, TX. | Part I

The western diet is associated with inflammation, and inflammation is central to autoimmunity and autoimmune diseases. Keeping the inflammation down can help in lengthening time between attacks. What to eat and what not to eat are the common questions. In order to quiet  inflammation triggers, educate ourselves and live a normal life is the focus.

My 2006 Seminar Series

“Understanding the Origins of Autoimmune Disease”

Autoimmunity:

The Central Question I Asked In This series,

Are We Allergic to Ourselves?

– Autoantibodies

– Are they really “autoantibodies”?

– Self or Non‐self?

I would like to re‐explore this question using what we have learned in 2018.

autoimmunity el paso tx.What Biological Processes May Make Self Into Non‐Self?

  • Post‐translationalmodificationofProtein
    – Glycation of protein
    – Protein Oxidation
    – Amino Acid Conjugation of Protein (Citrullinated Protein/AntiCCP and RA)
  • ProteinSynthesisErrors
  • DNA and RNA Changes
    – Radiation Induced Crosslinking of DNA
    – Oxidation of DNA
    – Copy Errors not corrected by DNA repair process – Epigenetic Changes (the methylome)

Where Do Anti‐Cyclic Citrullinated Peptides (AntiCCPs) Come From?

  • Activation of the immune system resulting in increased iNOS production of nitric oxide
  • Arginine residues in proteins can be converted in situ into citrulline with the release of nitric oxide by iNOS
  • The citrulline produced in the protein is now “foreign” and can be recognized by the immune system as such
  • Antibodies can then be produced against this “foreign protein”

Methotrexate is the most commonly prescribed drug to treat rheumatoid arthritis, yet it only helps about half of those who try it. Find out how it works and how to lessen its side effects.
