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…]

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.

Candida overgrowth is an increasing problem and can cause symptoms that mimic many other health conditions – fatigue, poor exercise recovery, brain fog and insomnia to name a few. Digestively, Candida overgrowth and other imbalances in gut flora (generally known as dysbiosis) can also cause a host of digestive complaints such as gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea. In children, Candida overgrowth can lead to behavioral and cognitive impairments – I’ve seen kids diagnosed with autism-spectrum disorders improving a lot in terms of behavior, cognition and emotional regulation, once Candida was put back in balance. So today I’m sharing with you my five favorite remedies for Candida overgrowth. [Read more…]
