Month: January 2018

We Can Help You Deal Much Better With The Winter Blues

You know you’re feeling depressed, but you don’t know why. You are not alone. Fifteen to twenty percent of adults feel this way when days get shorter, nights longer.

Feeling depressed is much more common in the winter months. It often stems from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). And The Guyer Institute can help you combat it.

“It’s not something you’re imagining,” says Dale Guyer, MD, founder of The Guyer Clinic and Synergy Spa. “There are real and sometimes complex chemical reactions happening which can lead to this condition.”

First, if your depression symptoms are serious, affecting sleep, work and life functioning, it’s important to see a physician.

Feeling depressed in a less intense way in the winter is frequently all about the lack of light.

Feeling depressed is tied to molecular biology. Natural chemicals in the body and brain regulate your circadian rhythm.

Vitamin D, in particular, is a critical substance tied to helping with mood stabilization during these months.

Studies also show that serotonin levels (serotonin plays a major factor in mood and brain health) drop when there is less light.

The Supplement Store of The Guyer Institute carries a number of products that can help you fight SAD, and feel better this winter. http://bit.ly/TheSupplementStore

Vitamin D – Supplementation with high doses of vitamin D seems to lessen the “winter blues. Activated Vitamin D receptors increase nerve growth in your brain.

The Supplement Store at The Guyer Institute carries Vit D3 5000.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids – Some research has shown that people with lower blood levels of omega 3 say they are feel more depressed, and have a more negative outlook.

The Supplement Store carries the EPA/DHA SP product to help you.

5-HTP – Less sunlight may cause a drop in serotonin, a neurotransmitter, which can trigger low moods/feeling depressed. Oral 5-HTP has been shown to be as effective as tryptophan in increasing levels of serotonin.

Give us a call at 317.580.9355, and then come in to get some of your levels checked. If you are suffering from SAD, we’ll go from there.

The Guyer Institute is ready to help you have a much more tolerable, enjoyable winter.

The Best Ways To Keep Up The Exercise Throughout 2018

Keep up the exercise after the resolution rush fades! That’s the New Year’s message from The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa.

The most difficult part with resolutions regarding fitness is the steady work required to stay in shape.

“So much about our health, our body’s balance, is mental,” says Dale Guyer, MD, founder of The Guyer Institute. “Your mind is your strongest ally and perhaps your greatest opponent. One strategy: keep up the exercise by making fitness more interesting.”

Here are a few newer and more interesting workout regimens or programs that could work for you in early 2018. Many are available in metro Indy! Or: create your own version for you and your workout friends to keep up the exercise.

Always consult with a physician prior to starting a new fitness regimen.

Trapezing: You get your own silk – a strong nylon blend – which hangs from an anchor a bit like a trapeze. Lift yourself into various positions and movements to build strength and increase flexibility.

Do the Derby: Roller Skating workout emphasizing skating positions and routines to build strength and increase aerobic fitness.

Hop To It: It’s called Kangoo. You get boots like inline skates, but with springs on the bottom. When you jump and land, it strengthens your core and quads while reducing the impact on your joints.

Personal Trampolining: The term Skyrobics has been coined for this fun workout. There’s a method to the “madness” that will get your heart racing.

In addition, there are supplements we carry at The Guyer Institute’s Supplement Store that help boost energy and make your body run more efficiently.

SynerG: a multivitamin/antioxidant. When exercising, it’s vital to give your body access to all the vitamins and minerals needed.

Magnesium Supplement | MGPro | Indianapolis supplement store

Magnesium – helps your electrolytes stay balanced. Can reduce the risk of muscle spasms.

Ask our knowledgeable staff at The Guyer Institute about supplements that make the most sense for you.

Keep up the exercise this January and beyond. Help your body perform at its peak!
