The world we are living in today is full of people with autoimmune disorders, and 70% of autoimmune conditions are caused by environmental factors.

What is detoxing and why it's vital to your health? Toxins are found throughout our environment – in our oceans, drinking water, air, soil, our foods and the things in our homes. Some of these toxins, such as lead, naturally occur on earth but our exposure to them has increased due to human activities such as mining and manufacturing. Other toxins, such as BPA, are man-made.In the last 50 years, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the production and use of chemicals in the United States. Today there are over 84,000 chemicals registered for use on the market. Toxins have found their way in beauty products, household cleaners, carpets, furniture, mattresses, food and house dust.

In case you haven’t noticed there is a war going on. It’s not a war like we see on TV or read about in the newspaper. It’s a war to stay healthy in an extremely toxic world.

Chronic fatigue, memory problems, sudden weight gain, chronic pain, cancer, diabetes, depression, anxiety, insomnia, hot flashes, thyroid conditions, autoimmune conditions, digestive problems…you name it, I’ve seen it. And unfortunately medication is the only solution that most of you are given to win this battle. I want to […]

Is Your Skin Crying Out for More Omega-6 Oils?

Omega-6 fatty acids are greatly misunderstood … at least the good ones are. Hopefully, by now you know that processed oils like canola, vegetable, and soybean are packed with harmful omega-6 fatty acids which will damage your health. But did you know that there are good omega-6 fatty acids that your body is dying for you to consume? All 72 trillion cells in your body have an outer membrane made up of fatty acids. When you eat the right fatty acids, that membrane does a really good job of letting toxins out while allowing nutrients into the cell. But most people are consuming too many harmful or bad omega-6 fatty acids. This is causing these outer cell membranes to get […]

Can zinc cure your depression?

2018-03-29T07:57:30+00:00Detoxing, Nutrition|

Zinc for depression? This is a nutrition idea that is rarely talked about, but a zinc deficiency can have a dramatic impact on your mood. The fact is, most people are walking around with a mineral deficiency and don’t even know it. The soil that our food is grown in is now vastly depleted of key vitamins and minerals, so you most likely are not getting the proper minerals from your foods. Add in a high-stress life packed with lots of caffeine to keep you going during the day and alcohol to bring you down at night, and most likely you have developed a zinc deficiency. And now you’re stressed out, tired & feeling out of sorts. Could zinc for […]

2018-03-22T12:25:08+00:00Detoxing, Nutrition|

If there is one key nutrient your brain needs to function well it’s magnesium. The connection between magnesium and migraines is especially strong, but that’s not the only thing that can be caused by a magnesium deficiency. Even the smallest deficiency can also cause: Brain fog Anxiety Depression Poor memory Insomnia ADHD Magnesium is needed to complete over 300 critical biochemical functions in your body, and 50 of those functions occur in your brain. Even though magnesium is crazy powerful, it is perhaps one of the most overlooked nutrients. In fact, it is estimated that close to 80% of our population has a magnesium deficiency. I recently got a front row seat to see how magnesium can quickly cause a […]

What’s causing our teens to be so anxious?

2018-03-08T14:06:19+00:00Detoxing, Heavy Metal Detoxing|

This is a question that has been plaguing me since my daughter entered high school four years ago.That’s when I started hearing stories about kids who were so anxious that they couldn’t go to school. Teen anxiety seemed to be an acceptable new condition that many high schoolers were experiencing. At the time, it seemed so illogical. But as my daughter progressed through her high school years, the stories kept coming. Kids from great families with thoughtful, loving parents were dealing with anxiety levels so high that their parents were resorting to drastic measures like taking them out of school or sending them to boarding schools that specialized in teen anxiety. It didn’t make sense. We never saw this when we […]
