“Be prepared!” Whether you were a Boy Scout or not you’ve likely heard this everywhere. For Skylar Pond D.C., functional medicine is all about preparedness. Doing what you can now to avoid pain or discomfort later! Skylar may be an expert sports chiropractor, but he also has some tips for those of us who aren’t professional athletes.
After suffering from a tear in his right shoulder while pursuing a career in competitive rugby, Skylar was given two options. He could either get surgery or stop playing the sport he loved. He created his own option and developed a demanding and experimental shoulder stabilization routine. This allowed him to continue to play rugby pain-free! Skylar was inspired to share that same level of success with others, so he became a sports chiropractor. He now works with Seattle’s own rugby team, The Seattle SeaWolves, and even competes with the Ivan Salaverry MMA team.

Listening to a health podcast is one thing, but can you actually apply what you learned? So many of us have the health knowledge but lack the skills to apply it. In this episode, Dave and previous guest Claudia Wilson share the building blocks for a perfect meal- concrete examples that you can use today. Their goal was to help you create your own collection of meals that are simple and delicious, so you’ll actually want to eat them! Even professionals like health coaches and nutritionists need a plan to fall back on.
These meals focus on satiety and optimal nutrition in the easiest way possible! Claudia Wilson’s “One Two Punch” meal formula is: 1 fist sized portion of protein + 1 fist sized portion of carbohydrates. The best time to eat is when you’re hungry, and this formula gives you what you need while keeping you full for longer. Keep this in mind as you create great tasting meals that you really love!
