Vitamins & Supplements
Recently, since becoming a bona fide senior citizen I am contemplating how to live my best life in the remaining one-third of my time. Of course, I remain committed to the basics of a careful, plant-rich diet, eating less, drinking mostly water and plenty of it, getting enough sleep on a regular schedule, getting outside most days rain or shine, moving my body, moving my spirit, and doing all this with joy! There are plenty of moments in our busy lives that could engender despair. But we can’t despair! Let’s remember we always have options like looking on the brighter side and committing to the best possible life.
I have recently found an intriguing company offering patches that deliver light therapy (photo modulation, kind of like photosynthesis) which is boosting my minute-to-minute interest in doing the work to stay healthy, happy, and productive. Partly by reducing nagging low back pain and helping with much deeper sleep. Click on the link and learn about the healing LifeWave patches. The newest one, X39, is specifically designed to boost stem cells.
So, I know this is an MLM company. Honestly, that doesn’t bother me in the slightest. The rebel in me actually likes that. Sure some MLMs have silly products. But many (like Amway, Juice Plus, even Tupperware) have useful, durable, health-promoting products. And plenty of corporate-style companies (where the profits all accrue at the top instead of throughout the salesforce) sell silly, poorly made, or health-robbing products. My goal is not to create a new business. I have Natural Healthcare and that is plenty of business for me. My goal is to live long, with good health, and to share my ongoing explorations with you.
This is an amazing service that will deliver top quality supplements, vitamins, amino acids and herbal products to your door within a few days. I will provide specific suggestions but you can also explore the store.
Fullscript bridges (but never replaces) the supplier to practitioner relationship while providing a quality practice tool with the best customer support in the industry, changing the way health and wellness is prescribed to the patient.
Priority One is one of the longest-standing (and continuously growing) industry supporters of the natural healthcare movement. They have the most advanced glandular formulations in the US market (way better than pharmaceutical, synthetic thyroid and adrenal support). They source their glandulars from happy sheep and pigs raised in Denmark and New Zealand. I like the way this website can sort products by health concern. For example, look for “Digestive Health” in the category product listing section. I frequently prescribe the LGS (leaky gut syndrome) for people with multiple food sensitivities (“everything turns to gas”) and also the Licorice Plus lozenges for heartburn, especially when anxiety or irritability is also part of your health challenge. Another plus when buying refills here is that 10% of the proceeds go to support naturopathic legislative efforts in Alaska. NDs have been trying to modernize our scope of practice since 1986 and we currently have the narrowest scope of any licensed ND in the US. The medicine is so powerful I can practice without access to pharmaceuticals, but I’d like to be able to legally switch people from drug-based disease management to achieve actual health, with as few pharmaceuticals as possible.
Spore-based probiotics overcome the issue not reaching the colon or intestine by delivering bacteria in hearty endospore form, able to resist the acidity of the stomach and successfully colonize the gut. The difference in efficacy is hard to understate. Traditional probiotics (99% of the market) are certainly better than no probiotics – but Mega Sporebiotic is in a completely different category with regards to efficacy.
