Let’s be honest, no one ever wants to suffer with illness of any kind. Isn’t life more fun when we are healthy, vibrant and strong?

How about you what would you like to change about your health and wellbeing? Or if you are healthy what is the one disease that scares you? The one you want to hedge your bets against at all costs?

Is it obesity? Is it diabetes? Is it heart disease? Is it chronic fatigue? Is it osteoporosis? Is it Cancer?

There are many things we can do to support our health and maintain our best chance at being disease free, let’s review just a few.

1. Hydrate your body Just as you need to clean your external body to be healthy it’s even more vital that you give your cells pure water to clean your insides. You have trillions of chemical reactions occurring throughout the day and each one of the reactions leaves a bi-product or waste product. Your cells need this water to cleanse and remove these bi-products out of you tissue and ultimately out of you body via your breath, your bowel movements and your urine. The appropriate amount for you to drink in ounces will = .66 x Your Body Weight. So for myself it is .66 X 125 lbs = 82.5oz per day. To figure out how many cups that is, divide by 8 (there are 8 ounces in one cup). I need to drink a little over 10 cups of water each day.

2. Cleanse your colon We are all exposed to thousands of toxins everyday through the pesticides on our foods, the pollution in the air, the chemicals in our water and of course any medications we take. These toxins and our typical American diet leave us vulnerable to digestive imbalances which jeopardize our immune system, our blood sugar balance, our energy levels, our bones, our heart our body weight and leave us vulnerable to all of our diseases from cancer to diabetes to osteoporosis. When your liver and colon are not supported they cannot efficiently do their job… it’s like never taking the garbage out of your house! And when we never take the garbage out what shows up? That’s right, rats! They love garbage. Candida, parasites and other unhealthy microorganisms are the rats in our body. These microorganisms can cause leaky gut creating allergies, headaches, weight gain and disease. ​ 3. Reduce the toxic burden in your body The reason many of the diseases we see today appear with age is because over time these accumulated toxic burdens become greater, leading to the breakdown of tissue and organ function. Don’t let that happen. We have several medical foods and targeted nutrients that can stop and reverse this process! We also invested in an infrared sauna for our patients to help your body rid these toxins from your cells and pass them safely through your skin as sweat. Did you know 40% of your sweat is toxic material? And did you know that in an effort to protect you from these toxins your body has wisely deposited them in fat? Yep, so as we detoxify, guess what starts to melt away? You guessed it FAT!

Oh, and did I mention that by doing just these 3 health enhancing opportunities you will lose weight, reclaim a flatter tummy and lose the bloat that we all dislike? That’s right, we don’t lose weight to get healthy. When we get healthy we will lose weight…FAT weight, and maintain that healthy weight by managing our toxic burden!
