OPEN HOUSE

H E A LT H Y HOMES THREE BUSINESSES SPECIALIZING IN THE HEALTH OF YOUR HOME

A HOME SHOULD BE A SAFE HAVEN, A PLACE OF COMFORT AND RESPITE, A PLACE WHERE WE CAN TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND RECOVER FROM THE WORLD. We know a clean home is a happy home, but sometimes there are hidden pollutants affecting our households that aren't removed by mops, rags or vacuums. Local professionals offer advice for maintaining a healthy, clean environment within your place of refuge  by eliminating contaminants and impurities that lurk unseen. 

+

CLEAR AWAY POLLUTANTS “On average, the indoor air quality is 6 to 7 times worse than outside the home,” explains Andy Pirami, owner of Billings Carpet Cleaning and Water Damage Restoration. Although having carpet offers huge benefits, as it is the largest filter in a home, it needs to be cared for properly. Just as you would change out an air filter in a car, you also need to deep clean carpets regularly to remove the trapped pollutants. “Poor indoor air quality can negatively impact health, especially for those that are immunocompromised, the elderly or children,” Andy warns. “I recently implemented a HEPA filtration system for a client who is undergoing cancer treatment.” These “air scrubbers” offer relief from allergens, dirt  and other irritants and help to purify the home environment.

Billings Lifestyle | January 2019


DR. JAMIE RIHA, BILLINGS CLINIC PULMONOLOGIST 1. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PURSUE A CAREER IN MEDICINE? “Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of becoming a physician as an adult. Early on it was probably influenced to some extent by my father being in the medical profession; however as I grew it was the combination of a love of science with a passion for improving the lives of others that led to me this career. During my medical training, I fell in love with the intensity of the ICU and the challenge of caring for critically ill patients, which ultimately led me to choosing Pulmonary/Critical Care as a specialty.” 2. WHY IS FITNESS A PRIORITY? “Regular exercise to maintain fitness is an essential part of being healthy. Greg Glassman, the founder of Crossfit, argues that there is a continuum between chronic illness on one end and fitness on the other end, with wellness falling in the middle. I completely agree with this philosophy. If you stay in physical shape, you can avoid development of numerous chronic illnesses and live a healthier longer life. Fitness equals health.” 3. HOW DO YOU FIND TIME TO VISIT THE GYM? “I personally believe that if you make fitness a priority and you make a commitment to include exercise as part of your daily life then you will be able to find the time to workout. Every Sunday I look at the family schedule for the upcoming week and figure out my game plan – when can

I run and when can I get in my Crossfit workouts? I then put them into my planner.

leaves for work. That sounds really early but it works for me. It also works for a lot of other busy professionals I know – the 5 am class is one of the busiest classes at the Crossfit Gym. In my opinion, anyone can find the time to exercise on a regular basis; it just takes making a commitment to yourself, in particular to your fitness and ultimately to your health.” 4. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING CROSSFIT? WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FORM OF ACTIVITY? “I have been doing Crossfit for three and

1

a half years. I decided to start Crossfit six weeks after our second child was born in 2015. I had been a runner for the preceding 8 years but I was looking to add an element of cross training into my fitness routine as I felt like it was one dimensional. Crossfit appealed to me because of its definition: 'constantly varied, high-intensity functional movements'. What does that mean? It means that through Crossfit you will strengthen all the important muscle groups in your body...you will be able to better perform every day tasks such as picking up a heavy bag of dog food and yet you will also be prepared for random physical challenges that occur in life.”   There are two big misconceptions about Crossfit that Dr. Jamie would like to correct.  #1) Only the young and fit can do Crossfit.   The truth: "While professional Crossfit athletes embody the fittest on Earth with

3

their ripped, muscular physiques capable of completing insanely challenging feats of strength and endurance, these are not the majority of individuals that you will find inside a Crossfit gym. The reality is that everyone can do Crossfit. You can have a 23-year old competitive Crossfit athlete, next to a 36-year old teacher/mother, next to a 55-year old overweight patient with diabetes, next to an 85-year old great grandparent all doing the same Crossfit class. The beauty of Crossfit is that every 4 24

workout can be appropriately scaled to each individual’s physical capabilities and tolerances so that each person is pushing themselves within their limits." #2) Crossfit is dangerous. The truth: "There are inherent risks to any exercise program and Crossfit does carry risks due to the performance of movements at high intensity. However, with a good trainer who can help the individual appropriately scale and tailor the workout to that individual’s capacity and tolerance, these risks can be significantly reduced. More importantly, I would strongly argue that the health risks of not exercising and living a sedentary lifestyle are so much greater than any possible health risk from Crossfit."

AMRAP stands for "as many reps as possilbe". When completing this type of a workout, the individual begins with the first set of reps, in this case 5 Ring Pull-ups, and continues through the series of excercises.  If the person completes the series of excercises, they start the series over and continue.  This process continues for the full 15 minutes.

beyond the resolution FIVE WAYS TO LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE IN 2019

EACH YEAR IN JANUARY, NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS MARCH INTO TOWN LIKE THE MACY'S DAY PARADE. Social media is cluttered with declarations of change as people assert their bold plans for the future. The idea behind resolutions is sound: new year, new goals, new you. Yet, many of us fail to see them through because the catalyst for these changes is forced. In order to truly pursue our best selves, we need more than a holiday or peer pressure. It takes year-round dedication and the deep-rooted belief that we can improve, as well as setting realistic goals for ourselves. Seeking quick results and immediate satisfaction can ultimately lead to feelings of failure, which is the reason people give up. You know you want to be better, but do you know why? Try these five achievable ideas for making strides toward self-improvement. Slow and steady wins the race to living your best life, and once you figure out your reasons for wanting to improve, you are in charge of setting the mile markers along the road.

improve your health + Adequate nutrition can be difficult to incorporate into our everyday lives, especially since so many low-quality food choices are readily available. “We all have nutritional gaps, and those gaps need to be filled with premium nutrition,” says Trisha Kalfell, 200K VIP Independent Brand Promoter of the Thrive Experience. “The Thrive Experience is premium nutrition that contains plant extracts, is gluten-free and non-GMO and focuses on digestive health.” Depending on your personal goals and lifestyle, Thrive by Le-Vel also offers support and benefits in weight management, cognitive performance, healthy joint function, and digestive and immune aid.

uplift your spirit + “Faith Chapel is a church that is committed to following and serving Jesus,” says Jordan Steingraber, communications director at Faith Chapel. “Jesus deeply valued human beings; welcomed sinners, skeptics and saints alike; and we strive to do the same. We live in a culture where we are taught that happiness is our ultimate goal, but we aim to live in a way that instead communicates that serving others is more worthwhile. Our experience is that when we give back, we flourish.” Become involved with one of their ministries or Billings and Beyond, Faith Chapel’s outreach to the people in need in our community and throughout the world.

stimulate your mind + Learning a musical instrument can lead to a myriad of benefits. According to the Kent State University music department, musical education can improve neural activity, fine-tune auditory skills, develop creative thinking, increase coordination and boost academic performance. Hansen Music offers lessons for those who would like to pursue drums, guitar, banjo or singing. “It’s a great release, a great way to be able to express your creativity,” says Troy Falcon, guitar sales associate. “Also being able to relate to others, it’s a universal language you can speak to anyone.” It’s never too late to begin your musical journey and strengthen your brain.HansenMusic.net

OUR BODIES REQUIRE FUEL TO FUNCTION, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Yet, the foods we eat are more than just calories. They impact every aspect of our health and wellness by providing the necessary nutrients and energy we need to thrive. Making healthy choices at mealtimes is incredibly important, but many of us are daunted by the task of prepping and selecting the right foods. Nicole Griffith, owner of Well Pared, is here to help. “Our primary goal is to change the way people eat by making healthy simple,” she says. “We do this by providing our community with fresh, healthy  and delicious food at an affordable price. We truly believe that eating good-quality and good-tasting food is the most important thing  we can do for ourselves. That's why we are committed to providing food and drink options our customers can feel good about."  The Well Pared menu is updated seasonally. They offer fresh fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies, homemade soups, granola bowls, wraps and salads, wellness bowls and more. "We offer juice cleanse programs packed full of raw fruits and vegetables that offer all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes your body needs for increased energy levels and enhanced mental clarity," Nicole says.  "We even offer a great meal service where we make fresh, pre-made meals for you for lunch and dinner.
