Immune System

Protecting your body from disease with glutathione

Modern life inflicts constant assaults on our bodies via industrialized foods, environmental toxins, chronic stress, lack of sleep, and our ever-growing exposure to electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) from cell phones, cell towers, cordless phones and computers. One of the best ways to continually protect our health against these insultsis to support your glutathione levels, your body’s master antioxidant.

Although your body naturally makes and recycles glutathione, modern life can overwhelm this system, depleting us of this vital compound.

Why do you still have hypothyroid symptoms?

Do you take thyroid hormone medication but still suffer fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, constipation, depression, cold hands and feet, or other thyroid symptoms? 

Have you been told there is nothing more that can be done for your thyroid symptoms because your lab tests are normal? 

Hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, affects millions of Americans. Many people continue to suffer from hypothyroid symptoms and a worsening of their thyroid condition despite taking thyroid hormones. This is because 90 percent of hypothyroid cases in the United States are due to Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that attacks and destroys the thyroid gland.

Two lab tests every woman should have done

I like people.  I can't help myself but to continually work on learning more and more ways to try and help people become or stay healthy.  It is one of my main purposes in this life and I can't imagine doing anything else.  That is why I get so excited about information like what I am about to share with you.  Sometimes helping can be so simple and easy.  I just need to be given the chance!

Many of you out there know by now that cancer rates are skyrocketing.  Amongst all the types, one of the most rapidly growing of all is breast cancer.

Nutritional Genomics (gene testing) will change the face of diagnosis and treatment in medicine

Why do some people get cancer and others, who live a similar lifestyle, eat similar foods, etc. do not?
Is there a way to predict your likelihood of getting certain diseases and, more importantly, to identify extra steps you need to take in order to not get those diseases?

The answer is now YES.  With advancing technology, some labs in the country now offer ways to test you for minor genetic defects or SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), in order to identify areas where your body does not quite work as optimally as possible and treatments you can use to make up for that.

Allergy Relief Begins in the Gut

Do beautiful spring days have you cooped up inside, sneezing and sniffing miserably? Before reaching for the antihistamines, consider the role your gut health plays in allergy symptoms.Allergies actually begin long before the hallmark symptoms of sniffling, sneezing, and itchy eyes manifest.
An estimated 80 percent of the immune system resides in the gut, and when digestive problems set in, immune problems are sure to follow. A chronically inflamed gut—which causes indigestion, heartburn, bloating, pain, diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel disorders, and more—can send the immune system into overdrive.

Fighting Autoimmune Disease with Glutathione Recycling

The term “antioxidant” has become popular in a multitude of products from acai to dark chocolate, but the most important antioxidant is the one made by your body: glutathione. Sufficient glutathione is vital for good health.
Glutathione is a molecule that protects the body in many ways. It shields cells from damage caused by oxidation and inflammation, it aids in detoxification, and it helps the immune system function at its best.

When glutathione production drops, you are more vulnerable to:
•       autoimmune disease

Do You Have Chemical Sensitivity?

Do you have a chemical sensitivity?
 
You’ve probably heard of food sensitivity to gluten, dairy, eggs, or other foods. But chemical  sensitivities, have become increasingly common, as well.

A person with a chemical sensitivity has an immune reaction to chemicals and heavy metals in air pollution, pesticides, plastics, adhesives, household cleaners, cosmetics, perfumes, and more.
When exposed to these chemicals, the sensitive person may react with a variety of different symptoms, including migraines, fatigue, inflammation, brain fog, memory loss, vertigo, sore throat, respiratory or sinus problems, or a skin rash.
