The year of Lifestyle Medicine

The year of Lifestyle Medicine

This year has proven to be a year of great change,especially for the medical community. The underlying issues faced with health are more than sickness, they are dis-ease, where the body mind and emotions are not at ease. 

Now more than ever a light is shining to make new conscious choices, habits and actions for your health. This requires a clearing out and cleaning of negativity, toxicity and past limiting programming. From food, movement, entertainment and news your lifestyle patterns dictate your behaviors and outcomes. For this to change, you need to change your patterns and behaviors. 

Lifestyle Medicine looks at all of you, your habits, patterns and behaviors. It’s here you can be given a new formula and plan for your health.

Lifestyle Medicine chooses vitamins, minerals, herbs, mindfulness, empathy and the present moment to prescribe health for you.  Health after all is a series of positive choices, habits, actions and non-negotiables.

When you recognize what you are putting into your body, mind and in your environment are not improving your quality of life, you make a decision, a choice.

A decision. 

Lifestyle Medicine is all about empowering people.  When people are empowered you make choices and decisions that are for your good. You take your health and well-being into your own destiny.

Resilience is a by product of Lifestyle Medicine.  When you have the right systems, structures and plan in place you will navigate health with more confidence, greater clarity and more innate wisdom.

Growth is a natural state of life and living supported by the foundation in Lifestyle Medicine. Growth is powerful in increase, expansion and new.  It may begin messy and unknown,  yet once grounded with consistency, growth brings more to life and living.  Lifestyle Medicine maximizes people’s living and life.

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.
