- Mental Motivation- Progress is Positive; congratulate you for getting out of the slump and getting help. You know realize how far you have to go to get you body back to normal function. It may seem like a long but necessary road. Become outcome oriented; set goals and celebrate the mile stones.
- Diet – Break away from the Standard American Diet (SAD) or Stressed Adrenal-Fatigue Diet and enter into the NO-STRESS Diet by “eating clean”, reducing your carbohydrate consumption, balancing your energy spikes by avoiding stimulants and consuming meals that are protein rich.
- Physical Rehab – Now is when you can begin your cardiovascular fitness. Again focusing on the basics (Posture, ROM, and Balance). Start by walking 3 times a week for? min then increasing by 10 min each week until you get to a 1 hour walk 3 times a week. Resistance training should focus on bracing the core muscles while you can slowly introduce resistance to extremities; ROM exercises; bands and tubing works great in this phase.
