Detox Your Way to Energy

Detox Your Way to Energy

May 5, 2020

We are exposed to countless enviromental toxins every day through our food, water and air. While the body works tirelessly to detoxify, humans are exposed to far more toxins than ever before, so our bodies can use all the help they can get. Heavy metals, mold, food additives, tap water contaminants, and medications all have to be filtered out, and these detox processes are reliant on healthy liver and kidney function, as well as having the appropriate nutrients to bind to these metals and chemicals so they can be eliminated properly. In this week’s show we’ll discuss how to detox your way to energy, why certain herbs are important for heavy metal detoxification, and how giving your body the nutrients it needs to detoxify properly can make a big difference.

Products Mentioned in Today’s Show

Perfect Plant Protein – Functional Plant Protein Vanilla Bean combines USA-grown, sustainable pea protein with microbiome-nourishing prebiotics and antioxidants. This great-tasting, bioavailable, and easy-to-digest protein formulation is 100% dairy-free and non-GMO.

Vital Detox – This formulation is rich in chlorophylls from Chlorella and contains a unique broccoli extract with glucosinolates. The chlorophylls in Chlorella form tight molecular complexes with a wide variety of everyday toxic chemical compounds, reducing their absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. A high-strength enzyme blend also breaks down dietary antigens and may support assimilation of beneficial constituents of Chlorella. Glucosinolate compounds in broccoli are powerful inducers of natural phase 2 detoxification processes in the liver. Most substances detoxified by the liver are released into the bile for excretion through the intestinal tract. Chlorella helps trap these toxins to reduce reabsorption.

Amino Complete – A comprehensive, hypoallergenic source of essential amino acids. Designed to meet the needs of individuals who require additional amino acids for protein support. This formulation of 20 essential and non-essential “L-form” amino acids uses the highest-quality, pharmaceutical grade, crystalline amino acids in their “free” form to ensure maximum bioavailability and tolerance.

Time To Reset Your Health

Time To Reset Your Health

April 29, 2020

Many people have experienced an increase in stress, anxiety, and depression over the last few weeks. There have also been reports of increases in the consumption of alcohol and unhealthy foods. These things can all take a toll on your health, and it’s important to give your body the support it needs to recover. Stress affects nearly every part of your body, but especially the adrenal glands. Alcohol consumption can decrease liver function, as well as affect the brain and increase your risk of developing depression. Eating unhealthy foods can affect your energy levels, gut health, immune health, and could lead to nutrient deficiencies. So, this week we will discuss what you can do to start supporting your liver and adrenals, and we’ll also discuss the importance of having lab work done. It’s time to reset your health, and we want to help show you how.

Candida - Getting to the Gut of the Matter

Candida - Getting to the Gut of the Matter

October 9, 2019

Candida overgrowth is a frequently discussed topic, and we get many questions about it from our patients. It is often blamed for many different health issues like autoimmune diseases, sinus infections, urinary tract infections, chronic fatigue, and many others. However, candida overgrowth is not solely responsible for all of these, and there is a lot of misinformation surrounding its causes and effects. Join us in getting to the gut of the matter of candida.

 

Possible Symptoms of Candida May Include:

  • Chronic Sinus Issues
  • Allergies
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating and Other Digestive Issues
  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Bad Breath
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Joint Pain
  • Uncontrolled Food Cravings (Especially for Bread, Pasta, and Sweets)
  • Brain Fog and Difficulty Focusing

If an overgrowth of candida is suspected, dietary and lifestyle changes are often necessary to help heal it and prevent it from recurring. Greatly reducing or eliminating consumption of processed foods and high-carb, sugary foods is one of the best things to help "starve out" candida. Candida is often said to feed on sugar, so reducing its food supply may help reduce the problem. Having regular bowel movements may also help with candida overgrowth. So eat plenty of organic fruits and vegetables to get the fiber you need to stay regular, and drink plenty of water to flush that fiber out.

  • Damage to organs
  • Damage to DNA, which increase the rate of aging and degeneration
