    If you have been around me, you have heard me say "The word Doctor means "Teacher". My goal is to teach you how to best use your limited amounts of Time, Money and Energy on health care matters, I specialize in Nutrition, Exercise, Skin Care and Bone Health!"  I also understand Stress, Sleeping, Hormones, name it; I have given it some thought if it is something that can help our clients. My first priority is to "Inform" you.  I will help you define your problem and then "Inform" you of possible solutions which we can offer in services and products to solve your problem.  If I have no solution, I will help you find a provider who can help you. That's my job and my promise as a health professional.  I have defined "Good, Better and Best" solutions to your problems, so it just depends on where you want to start and what you can afford to invest in yourself to start. Sometimes it is just baby steps to get you started to where you want to go.  That's OK, let's just get the Titanic to start turning a little!  My next priority is to give you some "Inspiration", by personal experience or scientific validation of our strategies, or the experience of our many clients.  Hopefully, these two steps will "Influence" you to do "What It Takes" to make the changes you need to make.  At Inside Outside, we are caring and knowledgeable (as you know, I have a short and a long answer for most things) and we want to help.  It's "The Inside Outside Way of Life"!  "Some do it Different, None do it better".  A better, more satisfying life is only a decision away!  Make "The Decision" today! You are worth it. As Robin Williams inspired us!  "Carpe Diem, Seize the Day!"  Just say Grrrrrr and Do It!  Join Us Today!

    Inside Outside Staff attends "Fed Up", documentary about how we are feeding our kids!


    Dr. Christian, Inside Outside Staff, our Interns and long time Inside Outside client Julie Kenfield attended a showing of "Fed Up", a documentary by Katie Couric about the way we are feeding our kids!  The information is an eye opener and reveals how the food industry and the government has worked together to influence the food our children are exposed to.  Showing the similarities between Sugar and Cocaine demonstrates the growing addiction our children have to Sugar and processed foods. The thing that impacts me most is how these eating habits are going to affect us and our children as they age.  There will be a marked increase at an early age of chronic illnesses which will affect our work force and even our military as more and more are unqualified for military service.  We need to "Save the Species" as Dr. Sears taught me in the mid 90's and it makes sense to start with our kids!  As of now, the government has done little, and as long as the big food conglomerates remain as powerful and rich as they are little will change, so it's up to each of us as parents to see this movie and be much more proactive with our food choices for our children.

     Water, Let's try to understand how scarce it is!  Resources to help us Conserve!


    I was struck recently by a graph showing the Distribution of Global Water (see right) in an article "A World Without Water", see link below, published in the Financial Times.  It is timely reading and we should heed the information and the warnings.  Far less than 1% of the water on our planet is available for human use.  If you have heard me talk about skin care, I always say "One of the worst things that can happen to living tissue is dehydration!" If we want to live we need to get up to date on the world and our local water issues.

    More on "Fat is Back", a Time Magazine Cover and Sweden rejects Low Fat Dogma!


    Since our last Newsletter there have been several new books and even a Time Magazine Cover and Article about the awareness that all we have been told about the evils of saturated fat are exaggerated.  Nina Teicholz in "The Big Fat Surprise" has retold much of the story outlined in Gary Taube's book published in 2007 "Good Calories Bad Calories".  After Taube's book there were a number of Meta Analysis articles done by researchers who were unable to find a relationship between chronic diseases such as Coronary Artery Disease and the intake of saturated fat.  It appears clear to everyone now that sugar, refined carbohydrates and excessive polyunsaturated fat have contributed more to our obesity problem and chronic diseases.  Most of our clients are being encouraged to add back healthy fats to their diets when they are finished with the reduced calorie portion of their program, instead of adding back unhealthy carbohydrates and processed foods.

    Inside Outside now offering Rejuvapen Facials and Collagen Induction Therapy!

    Inside Outside is now offering Rejuvapen Facials and Collagen Induction Therapy. Using a powerful pen which propels 9 needles into the skin at precise depths will improve markedly absorption of products and stimulate collagen production. The Facial procedure is similar to a Dermaroller Home Treatment, but is a little more aggressive and allows treatment around the eyes. The deeper treatment is more aggressive and markedly stimulates collagen production and reduces significantly the appearance of fine lines and markedly  improves the health & appearance of the skin. A great strategy would be to have 2 Rejuvapen Facials, a home program of Vitamin C, Retinols and Growth Factors, followed by a Rejuvapen Medical Rx for Collagen Induction Therapy. These would be performed at 2 week intervals.

    We salute Dr. Ritchie Spence on his retirement after 50 years as a Physician and Urologist! Dr. Spence attended Texas Western College and his medical school was UTMB Galveston. He then began a 20 year Distinguished Career in the U. S. Army doing his Internship and Urology Residency at Tripler Army Hospital in Hawaii.

He was President of the South Texas Organ Board and active in Kidney Transplantation for many years.  He has 2 children and 2 grandchildren and enjoys traveling to see them. Dr. Spence has been a proactive advocate of fitness since he stopped smoking in 1975 and started running. He ran the 2013 San Antonio Rock and Roll Marathon, finishing 4th out of 40 participants running in his age group (71-75).  Besides running he enjoys golf and skiing.  He credits Hi-Lo Strength Training with helping him continue his recreational activities with more enjoyment and safety.  We are proud to have Dr. Spence as a member of the Inside Outside Family!

    Community Relations: Silent Auctions, Raffles, Walks and Runs, 33 Events so far in 2014!

    Since it's inception, an important mission at Inside Outside has been to makeAsk Us!  Inside Outside has helped many San Antonio non-profit organizations!

    a difference in our community.  The best way we have found to do this is to

    make contributions to Non-Profit organizations through silent auctions at their

    annual fund raising events, seminars, health fairs or direct donations.  We would

    consider it an honor for any request for items to be donated or for Dr. Christian to speak to Non-Profit and other organizations/businesses in San Antonio and surrounding cities. Check out our Community Service Page chronicling Inside Outside's Community Service efforts since 2004!
