    "The Chiropractic Centre" with Dr Barry Decker

    "The Chiropractic Centre" with Dr Barry Decker

    Barry arrived in Hong Kong in 1990 following his graduation from the Philip Institute in Melbourne in 1987 and he practices as a Brain-Based-Chiropractor focusing on removing blocks in the nervous system so his clients brains and bodies are aligned. His mission is to optimize peoples’ health to enable them to live their lives to their full potential. In the podcast Barry shares his story of why and how he became a chiropractor.
     Additionally, Barry explains that our bodies know how to self-heal. He shares, in detail, a case study of a six-month old boy with a fever to illustrate how he works with his clients. The six-month old boy was in fact his own son. What is Chiropractic? Barry explains, it is about affecting neurology, it has to be specific to the joint to effect the proprioception in the nerves which fire to the spinal cord up to the brain to allow a connection to the joint. 
     He is a firm believer in the ability of the body to heal itself, we need to be smart, of course, seeking professional assistance for acute conditions on an as needed basis. Barry believes that we can do a lot to help ourselves and he shares his morning and evening routines to give plenty of examples of practices he undertakes.

    "Limitless - 2" with Tricia Yap

    "Limitless - 2" with Tricia Yap

    My guest on the podcast this week is Tricia Yap. This is the second time Tricia has been a guest on the podcast. Previously she featured in episode “131 in December of 2023”. Tricia has been in the fitness industry for closer to two decades. As a strength and performance coach Tricia loves working with Martial Arts athletes and with women in their mid 40’s and beyond. 
     In this podcast we focus on “Limitless”, where Functional Medicine meets Physical Fitness. Tricia assists her clients to get closer to optional health. We discuss the onboarding process for new clients who undertake a Physical and Structural assessment, a Lifestyle assessment, a Nutritional assessment. The onboarding includes an extended interview to know, amongst other things, who is the client, why are they seeking assistance and how have they become the way they are today.
     Tricia goes into detail on the four function medicine priorities, Blood Sugar, Detox, Adrenal and Gut and how the client program is decided depending on the client priority. At Limitless Tricia explains how they leverage testing to understand the root cause of client issues. How you can eat more and lose weight, how losing weight is more complex than the often quoted “Calories In Calories Out” formula for weight loss. 
     There are many insights shared by Tricia in the podcast like being consistent with your habits and practices at just 30-50% can get a result and being consistent at 80% will yield significant results. The podcast is full of great “Takeaways”.

    15:59 Between 30-50% consistency – can get a result,  at 80% can get a significant result…
