Tonya Schmolke – VP Operations and Communications

Tonya Schmolke, VP of operationsWhile Tonya was growing up, she became intrigued with the negative influence on one’s health due to poor lifestyle choices. This was a major factor in her decision to pursue her university degrees in kinesiology and education. Following university, she entered into the fitness industry. This is where she began engaging members in fitness testing, programming and coaching people on healthy lifestyle choices, both as a kinesiologist and club manager, in Toronto as well as here in Calgary (Bankers Hall Club).

Her alignment with the chiropractic profession has increased her knowledge base of factors which positively influence health and prevent disease. Her understanding of health constantly evolves as new information and research discloses the powerful effects of managing the stressors which are imposed on our bodies from all sources.

Maximize Health

While she has always known that mechanical, chemical, and emotional stress can make a person “sick”, she has learned that there are many proactive steps we can take to protect our bodies from manifesting the negative effects of such stress, thus preventing disease. She encourages friends, family, and patients to take action steps to maximize their health potential. These action steps include:

  • Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments and massage to ensure your physical body does not have mechanical stress or interference. Chiropractic adjustments remove nerve interference which negatively affects how well your body is functioning. This nerve interference contributes to illnesses such as chronic ear infections, gastrointestinal issues, pain syndromes, and a host of other disorders. Other biochemical benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments include a reduction in the release of stress hormones as well as increased mobility.
  • Staying away from toxins (chemical stress). Become aware of everyday toxins present in your home and place of work (off-gassing in new homes, plastics, radiation from computers and electrical devices). Reduce your consumption of toxic foods, such as simple sugars and pre-prepared foods which are often high in artificial additives, sodium and fat and low in nutrition. Eat organic wherever possible and become acutely aware of how your body responds when you eat certain foods. Reduce or eliminate your consumption of alcohol and pharmaceutical products (drugs).
  • Deal with your emotional stress by actively making decisions in your work and personal life to reduce your stress. You always have a choice. Exercise regularly, get adequate sleep and stay active.
