Light therapy is as old as the sun. Human beings thrived and grew due to exposure to the full light spectrum of the sun. Today we limit our time in the sun so we are not overexposed to ultraviolet rays and their damaging effects. But a daily 20 to 30 minutes of direct light and… Continue reading Mitochondria (Cellular Energy Batteries) Enhancement with Red Light and Near-Infrared (NIR) Light Therapy
Light therapy has been used for years to treat an array of medical conditions and diseases, from skin conditions like psoriasis to seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and depression1,2, and most of these studies have focused on broad-spectrum and UV light – the “shortest” types of light waves. But it’s only been more recently that scientists… Continue reading Red Light Therapy: Recovery & Athletic Performance

Through Functional Medicine, the improvement of my reproductive health has been most precious.
If you use artificial sweeteners, including sucralose (Splenda), you’ll want to read up on this newly published study. It linked Splenda to an increased risk of cancer, including a significantly higher risk of leukemia.
Laura’s and John’s life stories illustrate the physical price we can pay, as adults, for trauma that took place 10, 20, even 30 years ago. New findings in neuroscience, psychology and immunology tell us that the adversity we face during childhood has farther-reaching consequences than we might ever have imagined.
Methylation can injure and/or completely destroy our health and it also can protect us. So it’s proper function is essential and foundational to good health. This is achieved by optimizing genes through methylation pathway. If one pathway is hindered, such as in the case of MTHFR mutations, other pathways, which are reliant on it, will also be hindered.
As we age, physical and hormonal changes make getting a good night’s sleep rather difficult. Adding in factors such as stress, illness, lifestyle and environment can exacerbate the problem.
24% of the population is genetically susceptible to getting very sick from biotoxins. This can be determined by a very simple HLA-DR blood test. Dr. Shoemaker, leading expert in CIRS, explains that for these genetically susceptible individuals, biotoxins can’t be “tagged” by the body, and so the body then responds the only way it can: with fierce inflammation.
When rats fed GMOs and glyphosate develop horrific cancer tumors — and when government agencies like the USDA and FDA function as nothing more than industry lapdogs — there are legitimate safety concerns surrounding GMOs.
