5 Things You Didn’t Know About Dr Brady
1. Dr Brady Has A Major Sweet Tooth
I know… Being a Chiropractor and wellness expert we’re not supposed to have our weaknesses but I do! I confess.
It’s not easy. If I see sugar, my body wants sugar and I have very little self control. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are loaded with sugar but so delicious. I love cookies and I love brownies. I love sweets even though I know afterwards I feel absolutely terrible the next day. It’s hard to wake up and makes me feel extremely tired the next day.
That’s why I try to never buy sweets for the house. You won’t find any of this stuff on our grocery list because I know if I buy it, I’ll eat. Christy never stands a chance. I think that’s a helpful tip for anyone who’s looking to lose weight or cut back on the sweets. If you don’t buy it, you can’t eat it or drink it.
2. Dr Brady first wanted to be an actor.
I grew up watching all the Saturday Night Lives with Will Ferrel, Chris Katan, Jimmy Fallon, and Chris Farley. I took acting class all throughout high school with plans and hopes of being on Saturday Night Live. I loved improvisational comedy and acting. However in order to take the acting class for my senior year, you had to do the school play.
No problem at all, I thought, until I realized that the play that year was a musical and I would have to sing. My singing voice isn’t particularly great. It sounds very similar to Adam Lambert, if he was sick with strep throat and had just smoked a pack of cigarettes. I immediately transferred into woodwork that day and that was the end of the acting career.
This has lead me to truly enjoy speaking and educating. I love speaking and educating. Part of my future will entail speaking more at events/conferences and possibly book writing.
3. Dr Brady was a rugby player
Not a common sport to hear about these days. I’ve played rugby since I was in high school. I loved soccer and played football through high school. Rugby is a perfect blend of the two and I fell in love. I played all the way through my time at Azusa Pacific University as a flanker.
4. Dr Brady used to be 50 pounds heavier!
It’s true. By the time I graduated high school I weighed 235 pounds. I was overweight even though I was playing rugby. I was working out 3-4 times a week for rugby but it wasn’t cutting it.
I’ll save all the juicy details about how exactly I lost all the weight for another time but long story short I became a learner and found a love to optimizing health through nutrition. I found out what my body needed vs what it wanted. I did a cleanse to reboot my system and flush toxins out. I then started a brand new eating regime while trying out different methods of eating to see what worked best for my body!
I lost the 50 pounds, workout at Crossfit 4-5 times per week, and get adjusted regular. That’s livin’ life with vitality!
5. Dr Brady almost became a Chiropractor in Peru!
That’s right. Right before graduating Chiropractic school I had lined up a job to work with a Chiropractic organization in Lima, Peru. I would become a lead doctor for one of their clinics and work there for at least two years. I’ve always loved Hispanic culture (with a last name like Salcido it should be obvious right?) and wanted to travel, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity for a guy like me.
One day however I got a message from a friend at my gym, who mentioned that there was a girl who I had to meet and her name was Christy. I immediately said that I was planning on leaving the country so meeting a girl was not the best idea. She showed me her picture and took back everything I said previously and took the date!
Long story short after the first date I knew I created a problem for myself because this girl was too perfect to pass up. So after a couple weeks I was sold and told the company I would not be traveling to Peru.
Now I get to be YOUR Chiropractor and it’s my honor to do so!
