The unknown influences that effect your thoughts are what determine your outcomes during training and competition. Having an understanding of your emotions on a deeper level can profoundly enhance your degree of athletic performance.
Each persons' situations and goals are different. Their diets need to reflect their individual needs. We assess and equip athletes how to design their own unique eating program that optimally fuels their body for performance.
How you breathe constantly affects your ability to perform despite physical stress, such as endurance feats or high altitude competitions. We practice nose-only breathing and apply specific breathing drills to optimize oxygen utilization, reduce stress, prevent dehydration, and enhance the connection between your mental will and your bodily output.
We teach functional movements and play-based training to develop a balanced muscular structure and overall fitness.
Previous program participants have been top college recruits, college players-of-the-year, Olympic athletes, World Record-holders and Major League Baseball All-Stars. These athletes have gone on to be people of service through their careers and lives.
Athletes may feel stress or negative emotions during their training, which inhibit their natural recovery processes. Additionally, foods in people's diets may cause excess inflammation. Over time, the accumulation of inflammation can result in physical injuries. However, addressing the emotional component of the injury and changing one's diet can greatly accelerate the healing process.
"They told me I had to do a surgery for my shoulder and to take a year off for my back. I didn't want to do that... With Sean and Brenda, through the diet and the energy work and the training and everything they did with me, I fixed my shoulder and my back. I have never had any problems with it again." - Nikita Borodatov
For an athlete, the perfect storm comes together when a tight calf, heel, Achille's tendon and foot arch connect in the plantar tendon to cause a sharp, deep, debilitating pain. In reality, there are many systems of the body that intersect at this point. Therapies do work to provide temporary relief from the pain. When the issue becomes chronic and therapies such as cortizone injections, ice, and electric stem fail to work, many athletes are willing to try anything to avoid surgery or giving up their sport. Alternative therapies generally address multiple systems in the body to provide superior results for issues with chronic inflammation. They also can reach a point where they no longer provide the desired outcome. This is when a deeper dive into all possible stressors is a must, because when a chronic situation does not respond to traditional or non-traditional methods, more "layers of the onion" need to be pulled back to achieve results.
"The TEDS Foundation changed my life because it allowed me to come back from an injury of eleven months, an injury called plantar fasciitis, and go back and play tennis again." - Francesca Fusinato
Stress Fractures are remarkably common in female athletes. The typical college or professional female athlete does not follow the rhythm of nature and take time to recover. If you maintain high intensity training continuously, nutritional utilization is compromised, resulting in various overuse injuries.
"Brenda and Sean are really health-conscious and they have shown me how important it is to take care of your body. I would like to help people realize that, so it is through the TEDS Foundation that I realized what I would like to do with my future." -Carole Kahoun
Stress and trauma have a role in every injury and illness. It is common that someone who attracts intense stress and trauma scenarios has inherited a propensity for stress and trauma. Traumatic situations become normal for people who are part of multigenerational adversity. This is important because PTSD treatment often only addresses the most recent traumatic incidents. However, in order for the most pressing traumatic experiences of a person to be overcome, the past trauma stored at the cellular level on both sides of the family tree need to be cleared. Unburdened by that stored stress from family, culture, environment and the history of the geographic location, people are freed to truly maximize the capabilities of the therapies they are offered.
"That is the single best decision I have ever made in my life." - Cory Colstock
