    Gluten or Lactose Intolerant? Getting to the Real Root of Your Food Intolerances

    in Nutrition

    Did you know that an estimated 1/3 of the US population is thought to be affected by food intolerances? That's huge! And a large number of those people don't even realize it that food intolerances are the underlying factor for some of the most frustrating side effects including




    Headaches



    Nausea



    Bloating



    Stomach cramps



    Weight gain



    Diarrhea



    Constipation



    Fatigue



    Skin disorders




    I know personally the frustration of searching for the anwers of what was contributing to my own skin issues and weight gain. Unfortunately many doctors are only able to provide limited testing that only cover certain food items rather than pinpointing the actual intolerance related to the chemicals that are used to process our daily food. So even if you cut out that food, you may still find you have those same symptoms because the chemicals found in that food are also in other items!


    It's essential to identify the exact items you are intolerance to.  Many people believe they may be gluten intolerant or lactose intolerant, but after testing, find it is another substance is actual causing the problems.


    So what kind of test can you order to make sure it gets to the root of your actual intolerance?  Join me as I interview Donna Mastriani from the popular Intolerance Testing Group to talk about the most efficient hair testing solution that tests over 600 total items, including food and non food substances, where these substances are commonly found, and even what nutrients your body is lacking! How cool!


    Join us to learn how easy hair testing can be (you don't even have to leave your house)

    Death Begins in the Digestive System

    in Self Help

    The phrase “death begins in the colon” was commonly discussed in the early years of the natural health movement in the 1970’s and 80’s. It is really the whole digestive system that needs addressed, including the stomach. The subtlety of the digestive process is little understood by most people. Toxicity is a major cause of distress and ill health. Poor food choices and habits lead to indigestion and constipation, with an accumulation in the colon of gummy toxic residues. This leads to toxins being reabsorbed and recycled through out the body that irritate tissues and deteriorate organs. Detoxification and repopulation of the intestines with healthy probiotics are crucial for restoration of good health.
