What is the favourite part of your job at Ti Sana?
I am pleased and honoured for the new position of Vice General Manager that the management has given me. This new position will be for me an incentive to do better. In the future I see in Ti Sana more and more innovation, lifestyle management, education, a greater variety in food and physical activity, a greater precision, efficiency and differentiation in the treatment of all the Ti Sana guest’s problems. Everything to make our guests more satisfied. And in fact part of the job I like most is the guest’s satisfaction, their smile when they’ve achieved their goals, they’re brightening eyes when they have to leave from Ti Sana but they don’t want, the increased guest’s self-confidence because they’ve learned how to change their life with the life style. This is my favourite part of my job. One of the many positive aspects of my work is that I have to train and eat healthy to be an inspiration for the guests. In fact my motto is “ if you can’t change yourself you can’t change the others”. I like also to spend a lot of time studying human physiology, physical motor rehabilitation, nutrition, stress management techniques to innovate Ti Sana in the constant research of new explanations and solutions for our guest.
What’s the most inspiring client case study you have experienced?
Although we do prevention and not therapy, often it happens that preventive activities of a good lifestyle are so effective to have results on chronic disturbs or diseases. This is the Ed’s case, a guest who came at Ti Sana in an attempt to alleviate a very serious condition of rheumatoid arthritis (autoimmune-inflammatory disease) which even impeded him from walking normally. Every day he took cortisone drug to reduce inflammation, painkillers to get relief from the pain and asthma medications. From the first days he started having some improvements with deambulation. After a week he felt much better and he started walking in Ti Sana without crutches and trying to do daily exercise sat on a bench lifting weights. At the end of his retreat Ed felt so better that he started reducing the amount of drugs used for the rheumatoid arthritis (especially pain killers). With the final diagnostic tests, we measured a reduction of all the inflammatory markers, index that the clinical nutrition, increased movement, supplementation, biofeedback techniques (PPG and regmatex) were carrying us the desired effect: anti-inflammatory. Extremely happy (he hugged me warmly at the time to say goodbye) he told me that he will come back and he will change the lifestyle for themselves.
Your personal top 3 tips to stay healthy
I will give you my 3 most important tips, even if I believe that trying to understand how the body works, arise consciousness and awareness is the one tip that encloses all you need to do, but since you asked for 3 I will give you my top ranking:
To burn fat and reduce stress breathe deeply (as much as possible to introduce oxygen) through short and intense physical activities in the morning (20 min maximum to create pant) and slow breathing (4 seconds inhale for 4 seconds exhale for 5-10 min) in the evening.
Drink an amount of water greater than 3% of your body weight of water (if you weight 60Kg you should drink 1,8lt of water per day minimum) to keep high metabolism and energy level.
Stress and feed the body mostly in the first part of the day: 2-3 times a week, short and intense physical activity (15 minutes before eating). At breakfast prefer carbohydrates and fruits and satisfy your craving for sweet-carbohydrate (with poor products in fat). In contrast in the second part of the day eat less and less (mainly vegetables and protein) and rest more and more. In the evening avoid exciting substances (coffee, chocolate, alcohol, sugar, etc.). In this way you will burn calories and you will have energy in the first part of the day, while in the second part of it you’ll burn fat (burned at rest).
