How I built my foundation of success doing the opposite.

How I built my foundation of success doing the opposite.

They thought I was crazy. “Who would need or want what you have to offer”,  they said. I was determined in my ethics, clear in my feelings and actions. I knew without a shadow of a doubt my head and heart were aligned, in integrity, 

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your endocrine system is made up of glands found throughout the body. These glands, which produce hormones, send hormones into the bloodstream or into the fluid around cells, and receptors to be distributed among organs and tissues, and “programmed” to respond to the hormones. Essentially 

Glutathione and your body- the Cellular Level of You.

Glutathione and your body- the Cellular Level of You.

Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in cells made up of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. One unique thing about glutathione is that the body is able to make it in the liver, which is not true of most antioxidants.

Glutathione has many important functions, including:

  • making DNA, the building blocks of proteins and cells
  • supporting immune function
  • forming sperm cells
  • breaking down some free radicals
  • helping certain enzymes function
  • regenerating vitamins C and E
  • transporting mercury out of the brain
  • helping the liver and gallbladder deal with fats
  • assisting regular cell death (a process known as apoptosis)

Glutathione levels in the body may be reduced by a number of factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress. Its levels also decline with age.

Here are 4 Ways Glutathione supports your body and your overall health

1. May reduce respiratory disease symptoms

N-acetylcysteine is a medication used to treat conditions such as asthma and cystic fibrosis. As an inhalant, it helps to thin mucus and make it less paste-like. It also reduces inflammation. N-acetylcysteine is byproduct of glutathione

2. Reduces cell damage in alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

Glutathione has been shown to improve protein, enzyme, and bilirubin levels in the blood of individuals with alcoholic and nonalcoholic chronic fatty liver disease. Cell death in the liver may increase by a deficiency in antioxidants, including glutathione. The livers main function is to detoxify the blood.

3. Reduces oxidative stress

Oxidative stress occurs with the production of free radicals and the body’s inability to fight them off. Too-high levels of oxidative stress may be a precursor to multiple diseases. These include diabetes, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis. Glutathione helps to reduce the impact of oxidative stress, in turn, reduce disease. It also stated that elevated glutathione levels raised antioxidant levels and resistance to oxidative stress in cancer cells.

4. May help fight against autoimmune disease

Autoimmune diseases attack the mitochondria, the power house of the cell, in specific cells. Glutathione works to protect cell mitochondria by eliminating free radicals. The chronic inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases increases oxidative stress. Glutathione helps reduce oxidative stress by either stimulating or reducing the body’s immunological response.

Glutathione is part of a healthy immune system and supports the body’s detoxification process. Order today and save 15% on your first order.

The Future of Wellness

The Future of Wellness

Learning to implement and apply good habits in every area of your life can be challenging especially with so many time commitments. It takes discipline, focus and a plan that works for you.

Overcoming disruptive eating patterns, excuses for why you’re not working out, finding ways to spend time with the one’s you love and disconnecting from work and social devices giving them your full attention are all shifts in wellness.

These behaviors and patterns most likely were not modeled for you or deemed as important. Today they are absolutely necessary. The solution and answers lie within your planning and preparation. Taking the time today to support your overall well being.

I named this post the future of wellness. Former generations didn’t place much effort or emphasize on their health and well being. Work, providing for their families took a top priority and that was how many spent their time and energy. Now, with so many options for support, knowledge and information for wellness and how it impacts every area of your life, making it the center of your overall living brings order and structure into your daily habits and routines.

Taking full responsibility for your wellness brings you the opportunity to set the course of your future with how you spend your time. Having optimal health from clean nutrition, exercise and mindfulness today brings you energy, vitality and less stress. This leads to good decision making, ability to know where your priorities are and act without hesitation. You can separate work from family time without pressure, guilt or a need to get things done. You find freedom in taking time for yourself, knowing you know what you need to regain your confidence, keep yourself sharp and center yourself in all situations.

Does this resonate with you?

Health. It’s a Business

Your Well Being is more powerful and influential than you give credit for. Well being shows up as confidence, not arrogance, clarity, not chaos or disruption, resilience and fortitude as opposed to emotional uncertainty.

It’s proven what you choose to invest your time energy and money in builds and increases.  Just because you pay for a gym membership doesn’t mean you’re improving the quality of your life.  It’s business. There must be consistent actions, and a system and structure for growth. Results don’t happen from the mindless.  Results happens when in a plan, strategy with focus and discipline. Am I speaking a different language, or as an entrepreneur /Founder you understand the level of discipline and investment your well being requires.

Well being is crucial to success.  You’ve got to be able to move with the tides, the ebbs and flows.  You must be willing to pause before reacting, tune in turn in to uncover your next action step.  Reaction sets off a domino effect like firecrackers, one by one while disrupting your aim, your target.

The gym, your workout, your mental and emotional health

These non- negotiable’s are the foundation of your bottom line.  Growth, increase in revenue takes an ever present practice of intellectual stimulation, innovation and creativity as well as critical thinking and problem solving. Finding activities which consistently challenge your abilities and stimulate your thoughts, actions, feelings, habits and patterns, which translates and integrates into your professional life. 

What’s that worth to you? Why would you separate it?

Why wouldn’t you leverage your ability to show up at the gym to focus your mental energy into action and your emotions into desired outcome?  Sure it’s physical in nature and you see it in sports all the time. The amount of mental and emotional energy invested for success is no different than a CEO, Founder, or entrepreneur.  Business, money, health, it’s all connected. They’re 2 parts to the whole. Together business and health, physical mental and emotional well being will pave a path for you to stay centered grounded focused and moving forward.
