Good health is your natural state
You are born to live a life of vitality, strength, peace and happiness – you are supposed to be healthy your entire life. That life should be long and full of joy, excitement, pleasure, and fulfillment.
But it doesn’t always happen that way. Too many people are not living to their potential; they are living with physical and mental disease.
It isn’t right. You have the potential for physical and mental health and you owe it to yourself to drink from that deep well.
What are some of the things you can do to reclaim health for yourself and your family and to maintain your health throughout the years?
Importance of Water,
Want to know about an exercise that can lower blood pressure significantly? We're talking as much as 10-20 mmHg. No, it's not an endurance exercise. No, it's not strength exercise. It's actually an exercise you can do anytime and anywhere. It's called isometrics.
High Blood Pressure,
Functional Medicine University,
I first want to give you a brief overview on how medications impact important nutrients.
HOW MEDICATIONS AFFECT NUTRIENTS
The following are a few ways that blood pressure medications can affect how our bodies absorb essential nutrients.
- The medication can attach itself to a nutrient and pass it out of the body
- The medication can alter the pH in the gut so that the nutrient can't be properly absorbed
- Some medications need specific nutrients in order for them to be able to work.
The Following are Blood Pressure Medications, Nutrients Commonly Depleted and the Negative Impact of the Deficient Nutrients

Study finds that a common bacteria known as H. pylori to cause ulcers may now also be responsible for irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation (AF).
Dr. Annibale Montenero, lead researcher and chairman of Multimedica General Hospital's Cardiology Department and Arrhythmia Center, has discovered a strong link between the bacteria helicobacter pylori and an increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation.
Several studies have shown profound benefits of photobiomodulation for autoimmune hypothyroidism
- A recent 2013 randomized, placebo-controlled study in hypothyroid patients demonstrated that in people who got near-infrared light therapy, thyroid function dramatically improved, and remarkably, that thyroid antibody (TPOAb) levels were massively reduced. Amazingly, 47% of patients were able to stop medication completely! Moreover, the researchers also followed up 9 months after treatment and found that the effects were still evident! https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10103-012-1129-9
- They even published a 6-year follow-up, which basically said that even at 6 years, some of the benefits still remained, but periodic sessions were recommended to maintain all benefits. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6247385/
- "The levothyroxine dose required by group L was significantly lower than that required by group P (P = 0 002). The anti-TPO and anti-Tg levels did not differ between the groups. Conclusion. LLLT, by the methods described, has been shown to be safe for the treatment of hypothyroidism resulting from CAT" (CAT = Chronic Autoimmune Thyroid)
- (It is NOT suggested to use red/NIR light as a one-time treatment that is expected to last long-term. For optimal benefits, most research indicates that sessions be done with red/NIR therapy at least once a week consistently.)
Chronic Autoimmune Thyroid
There are many symptoms of body and brain dysfunction when one has Hashimoto's, the first autoimmune disease discovered, in 1912 by Dr. Hakaru Hashimoto.
Hashimoto's hypothyroidism is an autoimmune condition. Up to 90% of cases diagnosed as "low thyroid" actually are Hashimoto's. Often, standard care is not sufficient to achieve optimal results.
In this blog post I'll highlight 5 of the most common symptoms of this immune system disorder.
New report: 9 out of 10 receipts contain toxic BPA or BPS
A new report by our partners at HealthyStuff.org out today exposes a danger at many checkout counters—toxic receipts. They found toxic bisphenol A (BPA) or its chemical cousin bisphenol S (BPS) in 93% of the receipts tested.
You’ve probably heard about BPA in hard plastic water bottles and we’ve told you about BPA in the linings of food cans. It’s been banned from some children’s products like baby bottles and sippy cups in the US.
But did you know that after touching a single receipt, these chemicals can enter your bloodstream within minutes?
