I wish there was a magic bullet when it came to Lyme disease treatment, sadly if it exists it’s being very elusive! However, there is a new treatment that is showing promise – it’s a medication called disulfiram, also known as Antabuse. It’s actually a medication that is given for alcohol abuse, since it gives the taker a horrible hangover with just a small amount of alcohol. That is the deterrent to drinking while taking it. But it seems that disulfiram also has antimicrobial properties and has shown efficacy against Borrelia burgdorferi and possibly co-infections too.[Read more…]
I’ve been receiving a lot of questions regarding the HCG diet recently, so I decided to go live on Facebook to share my thoughts on the HCG diet, and whether or not I recommend it.

How to lose 10-15 pounds safely in 23 days!Posted by The Naturopathic Mama on Friday, June 14, 2019
WHAT IS THE HCG DIET?
The HCG diet is based on the work of Dr. ATW Simeon, who discovered that the true cause of obesity and being overweight is an abnormally operating hypothalamus. This causes intense and constant hunger, low metabolism, food cravings, and abnormal excess fat storage in problem areas of the body.
The HCG protocol combines a strict and specific diet with a small daily amount of the hormone HCG given either sublingually or by injection. This combination stimulates the hypothalamus to release abnormal fat deposits in the body, thus allowing the body to lose massive amounts of this stubborn fat quickly. This results in a dramatic reshaping and re-sculpting of the body while retaining important structural fat and muscle mass. The protocol is equally effective for both men and women.
I offer both injectable HCG and sublingual homeopathic drops.
HOW LONG IS THE PROTOCOL?
The program is a minimum of 23 days for those wanting to lose less than 20 lbs. Those with more than 20 lbs to lose can either extend the protocol out to 40 days or repeat the 23-day cycle after a 6-week break. Dr. Nicola will work with you at the end of your protocol to make sure you maintain your great results.
WHAT ARE THE LONG TERM RESULTS?
The protocol resets the abnormal hypothalamus condition, thus eliminating constant hunger, eliminating food cravings, increasing metabolism, and normalizing the hypothalamus so that the body does not abnormally store high amounts of fat in the secure problem areas in the future. Of course, healthy habits must be adopted to maintain weight loss, however the resetting of the hypothalamus is key in keeping the weight off. Having done the protocol myself, I have discovered some of the secrets of maintaining weight loss while boosting overall long-term health.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE HCG DIET:
I have tried to lose weight for two years. I have tried everything with no success. I had actually just about given up, then Dr. Nicola suggested I try the HCG protocol. Well, I have been on it for almost 20 days and I feel great and I am not too tired or hungry. I have a lot of energy. The best part of all is I have lost just over 13 pounds!!!! Amazing. I love it and I am looking forward to the next twenty days!

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that plays many roles within the body. We must get our vitamin C from external sources – we cannot produce it within our own bodies. Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables including oranges, bell peppers, kiwi fruit, spinach, kale and broccoli. The benefits of vitamin C include acting as an antioxidant, supporting the immune system, supporting cardiovascular health and supporting healthy connective tissue. Some people also use vitamin C to induce bowel movements if they are struggling with constipation.[Read more…]
Glutathione plays a number of significant roles within the body. It is our key antioxidant, which means that it helps to counter the free radical damage that can affect our cells. It is our brain’s primary antioxidant. This is significant as our brain uses the majority of our oxygen and therefore creates the most free radicals of any organ or system.[Read more…]
Infrared sauna is one of my favorite health tools. In this post you’ll learn about the many health benefits of infrared sauna, the difference between near, mid and far infrared waves and what each is best for, and how to get the most out of your infrared sauna experience.

I’d love to invite you to a webinar I’ll be hosting this Wednesday evening (6pm PST).
I will explain how Nrf1 and Nrf2 activation can switch on the healing power of your cells to reduce oxidative stress, heal mitochondria and boost detoxification.
When you need an energy boost to live your fullest life, want to slow down the aging process and prevent illnesses, or need to heal from a chronic disease – this is breakthrough medical information that you’ll want to hear.
RSVP here and the webinar link will be emailed to you prior to the event.
I hope to see you there!!
I know many of us take supplements (myself included), and I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. But what if you could activate your cells to switch on their own innate healing capabilities? What if you could reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40% in a month thus dramatically reducing inflammation, open up detoxification pathways, regulate healthy gene expression and boost your body’s natural glutathione production by 300%? All with a simple, natural formula. The benefits of Nrf2 activation extend from preventive medicine and anti-aging, all the way to helping the body recover from chronic health conditions.
With the Fourth of July well behind us, we really are in the thick of summertime. That means you’re likely spending more time outside, in the sun. For the most part, that is a really good thing. Being outside is so good for our physical and emotional health, but it isn’t without its risks. That is why it important to be sun-smart and safe when out in the sun!
Prolonged sun exposure damages our skin, increasing the risk for sunburn, thereby increasing our risk for skin cancer. But being in the sun can help boost our moods, and also helps the body produce Vitamin D. So how do we get the best of both worlds? How do we spend time outside reaping the benefits while minimizing the risks? [Read more…]
EMFs (Electromagnetic Frequencies) are a bit of a hot topic right now, and understandably so. What is less understood is what EMFs are, what they do, and the effect of EMF’s on your health.
So, what are EMFs then? EMFs are more accurately called “Electromagnetic Radiation;” they are a form of radiation that we are exposed to more than ever before due to modern technology. This lower frequency, man-made electromagnetic radiation comes from various devices (cell phones, tablets, computers/laptops, etc.), “Smart Meters,” WiFi, household electricity & appliances, automobiles, solar panels, high voltage power lines (both above & below ground), cell towers, and so on.
