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.

Depression approximately affects more than 3 million people in the United States alone. A majority of people resolve to taking antidepressants in an attempt to relieve their symptoms of depression but using medication doesn’t have to be your first option for treatment. You can reduce your depression, and improve your mood and overall mental health by using the following natural antidepressants.

Exercise is believed to be the number one, but often underused, natural antidepressant effective towards treating mild to moderate depression. When you exercise, the body releases chemicals known as endorphins which collaborate with receptors in the brain to reduce the perception of pain. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body, helping to reduce stress, boost self-esteem, and avert anxiety and feelings of depression.

Sunlight exposure is also a great natural antidepressant. An exposure to sunlight triggers the brain’s release of a hormone known as serotonin. If there is not enough exposure to sunlight, an individual’s levels of serotonin in their body can drop significantly. The low levels of serotonin can often be associated with an increased risk for people to develop depression. Getting anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes of indirect sunlight, 2 to 3 times a week can be enough to feel the positive benefits of the sun on your mood.

Sugar can also largely aggravate depression. The consumption of sugar causes tremendous highs and lows in the body’s glucose metabolism. Also, the body uses vitamin B to process sugar. Vitamin B helps convert food into energy as well as regulate the nervous system. If you use up your vitamin B processing sugars, there won’t be much left to help regulate your mood.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

The persistent feeling of sadness or loss of interest which characterize depression can often lead people to use antidepressants to treat their symptoms. Using medications don’t need to be an individual’s first treatment option, in fact, changing diet and physical activity habits are some natural antidepressants that can help improve mood and reduce the symptoms of depression.
