Episode 396: Dr. Alex Berger On Pinning Yourself To The Table For Better Health And Performance

By in Podcast

Dr. Alex, as she’s commonly known through our local channels, is a doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine. Jess and BJ initially connected with Alex through yoga, and since then, she has assisted them, as well as other members of Team YogiTriathlete, in reaching higher levels of health and wellness.

After a recent visit with Dr. Alex, Jess realized that although both BJ and she have sought treatment through Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for twenty years now, they had not had a doctor of this medicine on the pod…until…today.

In addition to a doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Dr. Alex’s dedication to being the best healthcare provider she can be has led her to advanced certifications in acupuncture techniques, herbal medicine, nutrition, exercise, yoga, meditation, mental wellness practices, and mind-body therapies.

She specializes in pain management, stress reduction, menopause support, hormone balance, digestive health, and emotional well-being, all of which are relevant to the longevity of endurance athletes since, after all, endurance is all about being in it for the long haul.

So please, dive into this episode and enjoy this brilliant soul and skilled practitioner of one of the world’s oldest and most effective medical systems.
