Podcast #162 The Top 5 Supplements For an Incredible Life

Homeopathic_medicine.jpg

I recently posted a poll on my twitter account asking about what is important to you.. Supplementation was the popular topic. I discuss with you the top 5 supplements for living an incredible life. These are hand-picked recommendations that I've created for my clients in the clinic that you also have access to. Many people are deficient in trace minerals such as chromium and other minerals such as magnesium and zinc. These are important for the function of your nervous system and a deficiency of any of them can create havoc in the body.

You'll want to have a good quality digestive support on hand to ensure that you are actually breaking down and assimilating the nutrients you are buying in your food.

Next, with all of the sugar, antibiotics, chlorine from tap water and other things that you have been exposed to in your lifetime, it's important that you balance out your gut flora. These offenders along with GMO foods can be the catalyst for creating dysbiosis in the gut, which creates the dire need for a good quality probiotic.

Most probiotics do not survive in the GI tract long enough to give the desired effect, making them a big waste of money. The particular form we use in our clients has been proven to survive the harsh environment of the gut, leading to optimal delivery of the good flora that you need to get rid of pesky GI symptoms such as constipation and diarrhea. Obviously, if you have a gut infection or symptoms that just don't add up, it will be of the upmost importance to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your symptoms and goals and determine the next steps you need to take.

The next step is to make sure that you have a quality B vitamin and broad spectrum multivitamin and multi-nutrient formula on hand. Many people are depleted due to chronic stress and adrenal fatigue. Your B vitamins get burned up like jet fuel when you are under significant stress that eventually leads to more fatigue and moodiness symptoms.

I discuss why my product is so valuable in covering your bases but also providing key blood sugar support nutrients as well. No matter how much you try to be healthy, if your blood sugar is not stabilized, your results will be limited.

Many people have a severely imbalanced omega 6 to omega 3 ratio. This is due to the various omega 6 cooking oils that you are exposed to at restaurants and elsewhere. If you have an imbalance in your fatty acids, you can have various symptoms such as joint pain, poor inflammation response and even depression and anxiety.

Getting a high-potency and high quality fish oil in your diet can help to alleviate some of these symptoms and also act as important "nutritional insurance" to keep in your life at all times. My wife and many of my clients are currently taking my high potency fish oil and says she never gets the fish burps! A true sign of good quality!

The modern world is stressful. We know that. Most people are stuck in the sympathetic, fight or flight mode of their nervous system so much of the time. We are not evolved to the modern world and won't be anytime soon. If you can't evolve to the modern world, there's only one other option. You have to ADAPT!

Adaptogenic herbs are the perfect way to do this as they balance out the whole mind and body. If you are in need of a gentle boost, adaptogenic herbs can provide that. If you are suffering in terms of sleep quality, adaptogenic herbs can balance that out as well.

This is why I've created the adaptogenic herb blend available in my store.

To summarize:

  1. Digestive support
  2. Probiotic
  3. Broad spectrum nutrient support
  4. High potency fish oil
  5. Adaptogenic herb blend
