Three Ingredients Contributing To Your Bloating, Fatigue, And Anxiety

Learn About Three Ingredients Contributing To Your Bloating, Fatigue, And Anxiety That You Most Likely Consume On A Daily Basis!! We so greatly underestimate the effect that our food (and the accompanying ingredients) has on our gut. Being mindful of your nutrition is not just for those who are looking to lose a few inches or lower their blood pressure. The food we eat and what it does to our gut DIRECTLY affects countless bodily processes including hormone and neurotransmitter regulation, mental clarity, energy production, and so much more. Anxiety, Fatigue, and Bloating are just a FEW of the side effects of an unhealthy, unbalanced gut! There are MANY ingredients that disrupt your gut. But today, we’re addressing the top 3 that most of us consume in one way or another on a regular basis! 1. SUGAR- Fruit, juice, soda, wine, candy, chocolate, cereal, yogurt, snack bars, the list of sugar-containing foods is endless. Sugar is proven to increase gut permeability (meaning food particles are able to escape from your gut into your blood stream), increase inflammation (the number one cause of disease), and can therefore exacerbate leaky gut!  2. GLUTEN – Gluten contains a protein known as Gliadin that is known to cause gut permeability. In fact, no human is physically able to full break down gliadin. So even if you’re not “experiencing symptoms” when eating gluten-containing foods, that DOES NOT that your gut is free from the damage! Where can gluten be found? Wheat, Rye, Barley contain gluten, but it can also be found in more unexpected places such as sauces and gravies, and any recipe or product that contains wheat...

Light Hacking — Biohack Your Light To Help with Seasonal Depression, Quality Of Sleep, Energy, And More!

Does Light Hacking Pertain To You? Do you use a computer or phone? Do you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Would you like to be able to get your body to wake up faster in the morning? Do you feel a drop in energy or mood during the winter? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you will benefit from Light Hacking!   The top ways to light hack and how they benefit you: DIRECT SUNLIGHT: 10-20 min a day, unprotected (no SPF, no sunglasses, wearing as little clothing as possible). Why? Necessary for diverse Vitamin D production. Yes, you can supplement with Vitamin D. I do that on a daily basis. But sunlight is the only thing that activates the full spectrum of Vitamin D, including Vitamin D Sulfate. Vitamin D Sulfate cannot be supplemented. Necessary for Cholesterol Sulfate production. Why is Chlesterol Sulfate important? It’s a precursor to all of your sex hormones Optimal Testosterone Levels. Whether you’re male or female, testosterone is vital for your muscle tone, body composition, and sex drive. Endorphin and Dopamine Release. Sunlight triggers the release of endorphins (hormones that can help reduce pain, support hormone regulation, and even inhibit cancer growth). Dopamine is necessary for stable mood, motivation, creativity, and so many other important processes in the body **What if don’t have access to the sun? UVB lamp or UVB-heavy tanning bed for 5-10 min twice a week* MORNING LIGHTS Bright white lights or blue lights – These lights stop melatonin production, so they’re great for helping you to wake up more quickly in the morning EVENING LIGHTS...

Could Mold Be Causing Your Health Issues?

Could MOLD be causing health issues for you and your family? For the last several months, I’ve started to notice a significant change in my health. I began feeling MUCH more tired than usual. And honestly, tired is an understatement. I began feeling completely WIPED OUT. Like… so tired that, to even think about getting up was exhausting in itself. On top of that, my brain fog escalated to new levels. I would be driving and forget where I was going. I would forget things that my husband had JUST said to me. I would be in the middle of speaking and forget what I was saying. Now, I had experienced these symptoms before with my earlier diagnosis of Lyme Disease, and continued to experience them to some exptent with Adrenal Fatigue. I mean, fatigue and brain fog are symptoms of MANY different health issues (lyme disease, gut illnesses, the flu, pneumonia, anemia, depression, you name it). But this was now on an entirely new level and I had been biohacking my body, my nutrition, and MY LIFE in every way possible for the last 3 years. So what could POSSIBLY be wrong now?! My Integrative M.D suggested I get a test done to check the level of mycotoxins (mold toxins) that may be dwelling in my body. Well, one cup of pee and two weeks later, and we discovered that I was off the charts for 4 different classes of mycotoxins. Guess what these specific strains of mold cause within the body? Suppress the immune system, damage the gut, contribute to oxidative damage of the brain, etc! IMAGINE THAT!...
