Thanks for tuning in to this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast! Monique Costello joins me to chat about the healing nature of food. Monique Costello is a Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert, Integrative Holistic Health Coach and a Gourmet Cook who conquered her years of persistent pain with the very same element that fueled her passion, food.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Monique’s health journey with persistent pain

-The role of a health coach on a healthcare team

-How to utilize food to reduce inflammation and heal

-Monique’s timely tips for eating healthy during the holidays

-And much, much more!

Monique’s experiences with overcoming chronic pain have taught her the importance of positive thinking and challenging personal fears and limitations. She states, “If you're constantly thinking negative thoughts, there isn't a chance for positivity to win. It’s taking little ways of how we think and how we view the world and tweaking them. “

 

Monique is a strong believer that optimal nutrition and health looks different for everyone and requires self-reflection and experimentation. She recommends that you “Start to become a little more intuitive with your body and start to really notice what your body is telling you.”

 

Monique recommends pursuing mediation and personal growth to be the most optimal provider for your patients and clients. She stresses, “We don't stop and take time for ourselves… If you don't secure you first, you're not going to be able to help anyone else.”

 

For more about Monique:

Monique Costello is a Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert, Integrative Holistic Health Coach and a Gourmet Cook. After years of a debilitating break down of the body, chronic back pain and unexplained symptoms ranging from low energy, restless sleep and weight gain to dry skin, Monique found relief in the very same element that fueled her passion, food.


A champion recipe developer once featured on The Food Network, Monique now works as a health strategist through corporate wellness programs and a one-on-one coaching. She teaches Soma Institute's Health and Wellness certification program and healthy cooking classes at Kendall College along with hosting Clean Food Cleanse programs to help people recognize that food is medicine and it can heal you from the inside.

On this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Jamey Schrier joins me to discuss the tools necessary for an automated private practice. Jamey is a private practice physical therapy owner whose mission is to teach clinic owners exactly how to free themselves from their grueling daily work schedule, how to make more money and have more free time. With his book The Automated Practice: Success Secrets for Working Less and Earning More which has been an Amazon #1 best seller and his online education course, The Automated Private Practice, he has helped hundreds of owners with concrete strategies to automate and grow their business.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How Jamey transitioned from a clinician to a successful private practice owner

-The top three things that challenge private practice owners and what to do about them

-Why successful automation is mostly about building the right team for you practice

-The tools and technology Jamey uses to boost efficiency and grow his practice

-And much, much more!

 

Clarity is a key when transitioning from a clinician mindset to an owner mindset. Jamey stresses, “What do you want and how fast do you want it? Because we are in control, nothing else is controlling our future but us.”

 

Jamey believes that practical leadership is not accomplished through self-sacrifice but rather building a great team and effectively delegating duties. He states, “We can't do it all. So swallow your egos, swallow your pride, and be the real leader in your practice and bring great people on your team. Get people to take stuff off your plate that you don't like the most. Do it tomorrow—I promise you, it will come back to you 100 fold. “

 

If your goal is to ultimately automate your practice, one of Jamey’s biggest pieces of wisdom is, “You are not here to serve your business, your business is here to serve you. Build your business around you—build it around your superpowers, your natural ability, your passion. Build it around you and it will be the most successful business possible because you don’t serve the business well by doing things you don’t like, and frankly you’re not good at.”

 

For more information about Jamey:

In 2004, Jamey Schrier was facing the soul-crushing struggles of private practice ownership. He couldn’t figure out how to grow his business without sacrificing his family, income or time.

Armed with an insatiable curiosity, Jamey invested the next 9 years and over $300,000 to learn how to automate his practice. At the end of his journey, Jamey finally discovered the formula to creating a self-managed, profitable and stable practice that allowed more time with his family and more time to work “on” his business.

Today, Jamey is sharing his methodology and what he learned to practice owners all across the country. His book, The Automated Practice: Success Secrets for Working Less and Earning More, has been an Amazon #1 best seller and his online education course, The Automated Private Practice, has helped hundreds of owners with concrete strategies to automate and grow their business.

Today, Jamey spends most of his time teaching practice owners how to apply his methodologies through his revolutionary program called Lighthouse Leader.

As Jamey tells the story, a Lighthouse Leader is a professional practice owner committed to achieving personal freedom from the day the day stresses of business ownership without sacrificing income or quality of service. His unique approach combines sound business principles with best practices that he learned over 20 years in business. Jamey’s true gift is in his ability to share his wisdom in a fun, easy to understand and implement, way.

Jamey lives in the Washington D.C. area with his wife, Colleen, and two kids, Jack and Gracie. When not having fun with his family, you can find him on the basketball court, the golf course or reading in his favorite spot on the porch.

On this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Jason Silvernail joins me for Part 1 of Ask Jason Anything! Dr. Silvernail is a Doctor of Physical Therapy who was selected for the prestigious Army-Baylor Doctoral Fellowship in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy at Fort Sam Houston for subspecialty training and graduated in 2010, earning him both a Doctor of Science degree from Baylor University and Fellow status in the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists. A clinician and researcher, he has published clinical commentaries and original research in the medical literature including the Journal of Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy, Manual Therapy, and the Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapy.

In this show, we discuss:

-How manual therapy is integrated into the biopsychosocial framework

-Rethinking the goals of your initial evaluation

-Strengths and limitations of a pain science perspective on patient care

-The roadmap to a military physical therapy career

-Jason’s hiring process for seasoned professionals and new graduates

-And so much more!

 

While Jason is a proponent for making advances in research, he also believes that there is more to gain from the existing literature to improve patient care. He challenges clinicians and researchers to “actually start using the evidence we already have. What can we do to build processes in our health systems to help us better integrate existing research evidence and clinical practice to make it relevant to clinicians, to make it relevant to payers, and to make it popular and effective for patients so patients start asking for it… What can we do to integrate and better use what we already know?”

 

Jason believes that there is a positive outlook for physical therapy and that the profession can fill a desired role in the current marketplace. He states, “Patients are looking for a low cost, low risk, non-invasive approach that they can have quick access to that is an appropriate match to their goals, that is matched to exactly what they want, and you can get what you want when you want it. There are not too many people in medicine that are offering something close to that, but PT is one of them.“

 

Utilizing the biopsychosocial framework for patient care has proven to be effective for Jason in his career. He advices, “One of the things I say the most to PT students is this job is half psychology and I used to think that my job was the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of non-surgical musculoskeletal conditions. That’s actually not my job. I am in the business of behavior change. And if you’re a PT, you’re in the business of behavior change too. And the sooner you understand that and the sooner you start to work on your ability to help engage others for behavior change, the more success you will have in your profession. “

On this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Nick Lucius and I chat about physical therapy wellness services. Nick is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist working with Barwis Methods as an Applied Coach in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How to transition from episodic care to wellness services

-The role of strength and conditioning in physical therapy services

-Nick’s thoughts on the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist

-How to develop a therapeutic alliance in a biopsychosocial model framework

-Advice for #FreshPTs

-And so much more!

 

When communicating desired outcomes to patients, it is important to stress the long-term wellness and quality of life aspects. He states, “have them understand that the goal is not to run you through the ground and to make you hurt, it’s really to empower you to live the rest of your life in the most positive and healthy way possible.”

 

In contrast to the biomedical approach to patient care, the biopsychosocial model can allow you to empower the patient and ultimately develop buy in for future wellness needs. He believes, “it really would benefit us to not look at us as a lifelong PT or lifelong clinician insinuating the mechanic, ‘Oh yeah, just come back to me and I'll fix you up.’ It's not like a car, you have feelings and emotions and thought processes, it muddies the water really fast, and that’s what really benefits having that wide range of education from strength conditioning to pain science to traditional physical therapy and that ties it all back in together.”

 

As a new graduate, Nick offers some advice for fresh PTs to, “Keep the hunger for knowledge and the hunger to really make substantial and life changing change for these individuals. When you get a couple of cases that might be discouraging or make you feel uncomfortable, everyone feels uncomfortable and at some point they got comfortable being uncomfortable, they got very used to having that hunger to try to keep driving to be better and better.”

 

For more about Nick:

Nick graduated from the University of Michigan with a Doctor in Physical Therapy in 2015. Previously Nick earned a Bachelors of Science from Grand Valley State University in Clinical Exercise Science in 2012. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and CPR/AED certified through the American Red Cross. Nick began at Barwis Methods as an Intern prior to starting his DPT studies and is a Barwis Methods Applied Coach.
