Public Speaking

Dr. Lauren Crigler teaches clients the secrets to eliminating back pain, pelvic pain, unwanted fat and other core issues.  As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, she’s treated hundreds of people who’ve spent years with pain.  Some of them were slowly disconnecting from themselves and their partners before finally seeking treatment.  Many of them have also gained unwanted body fat and struggle with exercising to lose weight.

Dr. Lauren has personally overcome all of these problems. She knows how awful it feels to have pain prevent you from being you.  She knows that losing unwanted body fat is hard.  She knows that life does not slow down just because you don’t feel good.

But… she used her knowledge to heal herself.  She went on to compete in triathlons, 5Ks and ultra-marathons.  She found her way to amazing health!  And now she wants to help YOU!

She owns a private physical therapy practice outside of Atlanta.  She passionately shares her professional knowledge and motivation skills with people who are struggling with pain, unwanted body fat and other core issues.

In 2018, she launched The Core Doctors with her husband, Dr. Britton Crigler, OB/GYN.  They use their combined experience to educate and motivate people within their overlapping fields – the core!  The mission of The Core Doctors is to help people reach amazing health through online education and health coaching.  Amazing health starts in the core!  They are talking about your physical core (the bottom 2/3 of your trunk and everything in it) and your spiritual core (the part of you that processes information, generates motivation, and thrives on self-love).

As the principle public speaker, Dr. Lauren is driven to help YOU and your organization!

She is available for events throughout the U.S. and Canada.  For more information about dates, availability, and topics please contact us.

Find her most recent public speaking topics below. Past presentations have been delivered for private gatherings of 25 people to large hospital groups of 250+ and growing!

Love Yourself Healthy

After years of helping clients find better paths toward optimal health, Dr. Lauren is shouting from the mountain tops: every decision you make will be a better one when it comes from a place of love. “You have to love yourself healthy!” Using examples from her professional experiences and drawing from literature on the topic, Dr. Crigler inspires and educates listeners to take essential steps toward optimal health coming from a place of self-love.

Got Fiber correct

Got Fiber?*

Do you want to feel full without over eating?  Do you want to lose weight?  Is your cholesterol is too high?  Do you experience constipation? – no, it’s not normal!

Fiber and water are essential to your body.  But not all fiber is created equal!  Learn about the types of fiber, why we need it, where we get it from and how delicious it can be.

Fiber is one of the secrets to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, lowering your cholesterol level and saying goodbye to constipation forever.

Also, learn how to avoid gas production as you increase your fiber intake.  Dr. Lauren Crigler has two young sons so this topic can be kept strictly professional or presented with some good hearted humor!

This topic works well for general audiences interested in nutrition as well as those concerned with specific diagnoses (e.g., constipation, back pain, pelvic pain, hypercholesterolemia) and can be tailored to specific diagnoses upon request.

*Optional, Dr. Crigler can work with your caterer to tie the topic into a dinner event.

 

Sugar High,Sugar Low

Sugar High, Sugar Low*

Are you addicted to sugar? Maybe that sounds a little dramatic.  But here are the signs of addiction: craving the substance, loosing control around the substance, and consuming more than you intended too.

But unlike cocaine, we need glucose to survive.  Just not as much as most of us consume.  Not even close.

Our bodies use glucose in many ways, but too much leads to increased insulin, increased body fat, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.  It’s a downward spiral and a major cause of obesity in the United States.  But it doesn’t have to be that way for YOU!

Learn about sugar addiction, why we keep coming back to it, and ways to break the cycle.  Lots of little changes can have a huge impact.  You’ll cook, eat and drink a little differently.  You’ll shop and organize your pantry and fridge a little differently.  When you go to social gatherings, you’ll even stand and sit a little differently.

Change your way of thinking about food.  Learn to use food, not abuse food.   Fuel your life with better ingredients for amazing health.

This topic works well for general audiences interested in nutrition as well as those concerned with specific diagnoses (e.g., diabetes, insulin resistance, IBS, chronic fatigue) and can be tailored to specific diagnoses upon request.

*Optional, Dr. Crigler can work with your caterer to tie the topic into a dinner event.
