You’ve probably seen my posts or heard me talking a lot about your Microbiome lately. Scientists are finding out more and more each day exactly how important these are to our overall health, and I’ve been doing my own research and work to help my patients. It’s amazing what a clean gut can do for us!
Microbiome refers to all of the organisms that live in or on your body. Your gut’s health is 80% of your immune system. It is a major determining factor in how much weight you lose or hang on to. Your microbiome is like your guts genetic footprint and internal ecosystem. It actually determines our set point weight and genetic pre-disposition, supports immunity and decreases inflammation. Disease begins in your Microbiome. They are intimately involved in every aspect of our health, from ensuring our digestive well-being to influencing our likelihood of being obese and our risk of developing cancer or diabetes. They even play a role in our brain health, our mood, emotions and even our personalities! It’s crazy stuff that I could go on and on about. As you probably know, we play a big part in what happens with our gut and ultimately our bodies overall health. Of course all of our healthy eating classes and private appoints focus on gut health and we can never stop learning about our health.
Things that help your Microbiome are:
Probiotics, detox, digestive enzymes, soap and water, getting dirty (literally).
Things that hurt your Microbiome are:
Antibiotics, Pesticides, Medication, Anti-bacterial soap, being too clean!
Signs you need to detox include:
Inability to lose weight
Pain and inflammation in the joints
Supplements for your gut:
Our Nutrametrix Isotonics are the best probiotics and digestive enzymes on the planet (as are the other supplements we carry) because of the delivery system for one, and the quality for two.
Spring is in the air and we are so excited to introduce the new Raw Truth Refresh Class at the Fountain Wellness Center! This is a once per month class for people who don’t need or don’t have time for our 4-8 week programs. We’ve had so many requests from past grads of our programs to do a once per month so this is for you too! It’s designed to help you get or stay on track!
We are kicking it off this coming Monday 4/30 6pm with a 12 Day Cleanse which includes a 106 double sided page detox and packet of information! Space is limited at the Fountain due to parking (which we are working).
As busy as I always am, you probably noticed I am adding a lot more group classes, and doing even more etc. Well it takes a village, and we recently have brought on my good friend and business partner Ann Marie Landel at the USA Raw Truth offices who is a Nutrametrix Consultant also and currently enrolled in a World Class Nutrition Certification with me, (yes I’m always updating my Certifications and adding yet another one under my belt). This has allowed me to spend more time on the many things I’m gifted a,t while Ann Marie focus’s on the things she’s gifted at in the business, and as a result we are cranking and helping even more people these days. We are having so much fun working together and I feel very blessed.
My good friend and business partner fellow Nutritionist Lara Frendjian is helping me keep people healthy on the Canadian side and you can reach her at The Wellness Advantage www.wellnessadvantage.ca or go to www.Mygreenfork.com for her wonderful recipes.
Summer Detox and 6 Week Class:
Our 6-week class is off and running and I’m so excited to see so many people taking charge of their health with the summer detox and class! Although it’s sold out we have another class starting in 6 weeks again for those of you that didn’t get in this class. Our new summer detox is based on cleansing the gut and improving your microbiome. As I mentioned your gut bacteria determines your body’s weight set point and also dictates your immune system capabilities. So you could be hanging on to excess weight because you gut flora is out of whack! See below for dates of our next program and cleanse that gut to ditch the cover-up and feel great this summer.
This 6-week classes and summer detox starts with 35 page plan and 30 plus pages of recipes to match the plan starts up again in June.
