Support Supplements- September
Some of you may want to connect and communicate the awesome changes that are happening or just look to share the challenges of working this program over the next 12 months. I added this comment section in the hopes that we could create a small community of support.
Rule #1 (the only rule)
Be Kind. We are all working on our "stuff." This is a place to share and feel heard NOT judged.

Support Supplements- June
Vitamin C and the importance of collagen.
As we move into summer, I think of time in the sun with the family. As important as it is to get natural vitamin D, we have to remember to protect our skin with Vitamin C, the building block of collagen and ALL soft tissue. That's right.
ALL SOFT TISSUE. skin, intestinal lining, joint support, early bone tissue, blood vessels,
EVERY SOFT TISSUE.
I like C-synergy. (Used to be called Collagen-C.
Its ingredients and possible health impact:
Rose Hips-high is ascorbic acid and lipid soluble antioxidants such as carotenoids and tocopherols. It has been traditionally used to support inflammation or oxidative stress.
Veal Bone PMG-provides nucleotides, peptides, and minerals from veal bone
Bovine adrenal-supporting adrenal health can support the immune system
Defatted wheat germ-common in Dr. Royal Lee’s formulas as its very nutrient dense. Wheat germ may have anti-aging effects. It is the highest known food source of spermidine which has shown longevity effects in studies Cellular Health and Aging - WholisticMatters
Buckwheat-another common Dr. Royal Lee traditional nutrient dense ingredient, buckwheat may support collagen synthesis and help reduce oxidative stress due its macro and micronutrient content.
Reishi and shiitake mushroom-anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, immune system support
Support Supplements- May
Some people are still detoxing during this month but May is a good time to work on your immune system for support of seasonal allergies. Prebiotics are important as food for your probiotic bacteria; that means eating lots of fiber. If you have been doing the detox program, you still have gastrofiber left over so it's a good idea to keep taking that to ensure plenty of prebiotic fiber.
Support Supplements- April
April is the beginning of spring and that is liver energy.
This is the time of cleansing and detoxification. We usually try to do our annual 21-day purification program during this time of the year.
The 21-Day Purification Program is a complete program that is designed to support the five main organs of detoxification in your body:
It is designed to feed you while you are cleansing and not starve you.
During the 3 weeks you will remove caffeine, dairy, sugar and alcohol.
We recommend that you use a fourth week to re-introduce the foods you took out and see how you body responds. You may find that you are okay with not having them in your life.
Support Supplements- March
March is the time of energy.
Energy in our bodies is made primarily from glucose. Now, that doesn't mean that we should be eating a ton of sugar but foods like vegetables and fruits inevitably break down into glucose. But then what does the body do?
Glucose goes through the "Kreb's cycle" and "Electron Transport Chain" (which I am sure all of you remember from high school health class) to make ATP= the fuel cell of the body.
Those processes require a few things- B-vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other cofactors.
best way to get the necessary cofactors is to eat- A RAINBOW OF FOODS. that's right COLOR is the key.
Of course if you want to just take some supplements to help, here are some great options.

Support Supplements- February
February is heart health month.
Heart or Cardiovascular disease is still the number one cause of death in America. Despite tons of education, the implementation of lowering cholesterol levels as a marker for statin drug initiation, and a variety of surgical interventions. It's just plain crazy.
I have learned that there are one primary factor in cardiovascular health- sugar.
Sugar increases visceral body fat (fat around your organs)
Sugar makes blood vessels brittle.
Sugar depletes B vitamins- essential for proper nerve conduction for the heart.
Sugar. Sugar. Sugar.

A valuable tool in preparing your mind and body for change, visualization, and creating new neural connections is breathing. In this video we demonstrate how to perform diaphragmatic breathing. This breath technique helps to shift your brain into parasympathetic mode (relaxation) and away from the fight or flight response of stress. Perform daily at least once a day, preferably before you start visualizing your Do. Have. Be. list.
Our wellbeing is more complex than just our physical world.
Many things contribute to overall wellbeing- health, relationships, finances, work, to name a few.
Even our self-image plays an important role.
When we are “stuck” and want change in our lives, we are often confronted with where and how to start. This system is a culmination of tools that I found to be effective AND easy to implement.
The toughest part is going to be trusting the system.
Opportunities will show up in your life but because they don’t align with what you think should happen, you may not act on it. If you trust the system, you will act on it regardless, and see miracles happen.
