My name is Tiffany Anderson. I am the founder of Anderson Therapeutics and author of, Butternut to Bionic: A Resource Guide for Hip Replacement Surgery. I am a health educator, a wellness coach, a licensed massage therapist, and a Reiki Master. Nine years ago, in my mid 40’s, my life changed dramatically when I experienced heart and liver failure and found myself receiving dual hip replacements. The mysterious part of this experience is that there was no known cause leading to my illness or need for joint replacement. During my recovery I utilized my education, background in alternative health, and desire to heal as holistically as possible to return to an active lifestyle. Both my book and website share my tips, tools, and resources I relied on to manage pain, support the health of my joints, and maintain a lean weight.
I offer readers multiple ways to manage chronic illness, support good health, sleep more soundly, feel better, and heal more effectively. Check out my 3 Key Concepts - simple and affordable approaches to well being. access to free health resources, a weekly wellness blog, health coaching that focuses on a plant-based diet, and as I mentioned above, a FREE gift when you subscribe to my website…4 Proven Methods to Manage Chronic Pain. Subscribers to my website receive a monthly wellness newsletter and discounts towards coaching and Reiki services. Curious? Want to learn more? Check my credentials and contact me!

I achieved all three of these promises after watching the film Forks Over Knives and reading the book The Starch Solution by Dr. John McDougall. Applying the principles I learned from the film and following Dr. McDougall’s free 10-day program I began shedding excess weight and would soon rid myself of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and the medication I took to manage it.

Living with one or more chronic illnesses often coincides with poor sleep. Lack of quality sleep may be due to the illness itself or to side effects from medication needed to manage the illness. This frustrating cycle calls for us to juggle treatment methods while we aim for a satisfying quality of life rather than one that is just tolerable. A crucial key to restful sleep is to eat a balanced diet and avoid using food to self medicate. Food may be the last horizon of indulgence since those of us with chronic illness are typically told to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine…so food becomes the drug of choice to feel better. Food is enjoyable, yes…though using food to calm emotions, fight boredom, relieve stress, and to numb pain is problematic. Certain foods contain some of the most specific healing nutrients on the planet. Junk foods, on the other hand, contain poisons such as carcinogens, nitrates, saturated fats, and overly processed ingredients that wreak havoc on our organs and lack any nutritional benefit. Eating too close to bedtime is also taxing on our system. Digestion requires a great deal of energy. This is why it is suggested that you avoid eating 2-3 hours before going to bed. A very small snack, such as a plain baked potato is light and may even help you to sleep due to the affect a skin on potato has on serotonin levels. Speak to your doctor about your sleep and healthy steps you can take to improve.

Over the past 23 years clients have told me how they manage their chronic aches and pains, especially in their back, neck, and shoulders. Those areas of the body are where I am most commonly asked to spend the bulk of my time during a massage session. Given the stereotypical American lifestyle, it’s no wonder these areas are tense since people tend to sit more and move less. The cause of upper body tension is generally related to things like excess stress, poor posture, computer work, lack of sleep, being overweight, and a sedentary lifestyle in general. Sadly, many of my clients are rarely consistent in their efforts to better manage pain and often rely on medication while neglecting the root cause of the problem.
Therapeutic bodywork is an ideal way to treat muscle tension since massage therapy is a specific form of passive stretching. During a massage the circulation of blood and lymph increases, muscles relax, tension around the joints are minimized, and those ‘feel good’ endorphins are released. This is how a massage therapist can relieve ‘knots’ often felt between shoulder blades and above the collar bone. As blood flow increases during a massage, nutrients delivered to the cells is enhanced, swelling is reduced, and blood pressure is lowered. Research suggests that receiving a therapeutic massage at least once every 4-6 weeks can provide long term health benefits. I find that receiving a massage once a month manages my joint and arthritis pain, helps me to relax and feel nurtured, and my skin has a healthy glow. Experience the results for yourself!
