INFLAMMATION & AUTOIMMUNE

Any condition with an -itis is an inflammatory issue, such as arthritis and gastritis, as well as most conditions involving pain, swelling, and lack of function. When the body is inflamed it goes into defense mode which shuts down or throws off many regulatory functions of the body including metabolism. As if pain, puffiness, and chronic fatigue from inflammation weren’t enough, living in a chronic state of inflammation can drive other disease risks including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer as inflammation accelerates their processes. Get to the root of inflammation by cleaning up your diet and focusing on whole, real foods first. Then you may consider layering in therapeutic elements of nutritional ketosis to truly manage the condition.

Virtual Ketosis

KETONES REDUCE OXIDATIVE STRESS AND INFLAMMATORY PROCESSES IN THE BRAIN AND BEYOND!

Elevated blood sugar levels accelerate the inflammatory process in the body which then only drives more insulin resistance and higher blood sugar levels. One way to bring blood sugar down is to reduce carbohydrate intake and shift from being a sugar burner to a fat burning machine. When carbohydrates are restricted, insulin levels reduce and the body starts to produce ketones from body fat and fat in the diet. Fat as a fuel source puts less oxidative stress on the body so it runs as a high octane clean fuel, thus reducing inflammatory reactions. My program and ebooks provide guidance on using whole real foods (no fake sweeteners or processed products here!) to turn your body into a fat burning machine and gain the benefits of ketones supporting cognitive function and preserving energy stores while soothing the body’s pain processes.

This powerful gut restoration powder features three key ingredients—glutamine, deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), and aloe—that are designed to support the integrity and healthy function of the gastrointestinal lining. A healthy gastrointestinal lining is essential for proper digestion, immune function, and overall health.*

GI lining powder features:
● 3.5 grams of the amino acid glutamine, which provides both a source of fuel and precursors for growth to the rapidly dividing cells of the intestinal lining.*
● A concentrated extract of DGL to support gastrointestinal health.*
● A premium extract of aloe leaf to support a healthy intestinal lining.*

Suggested Use: 1 Tsp (1 scoop) at bed mixed with 3-4 oz water

Note: The licorice in GI Lining Support has been processed to remove glycyrrhizin, which has been associated with sodium and water retention, as to not have an impact on patients with elevated blood pressure. In addition, a proprietary extraction process removes the bitter principles of aloe to prevent a laxative effect.

Cellular Antiox

$56.15

Cellular Antiox: Glutathione is the most potent antioxidant playing a role in chronic fatigue syndrome, inflammation, detoxification, and cellular defense. The unique delivery of acetylated form of glutathione is paired with NAC and B6 for optimum absorption and bioavailability. S-acetyl-glutathione is well-suited for oral ingestion, because this acetyl group protects glutathione from breaking down in the gastrointestinal tract; once absorbed and inside the cells it is removed, thus leaving the glutathione molecule intact. This product also includes N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) and vitamin B6, both of which are important for the production of glutathione. This formula is used in the Naturally Nourished Clinic to reduce inflammation, toxicity, arthritic pain and chronic fatigue.*

ADVANCED FUNCTIONAL LABS

If you test positive for leaky gut with a low secretory IgA, your inflammatory distress is related to unknown food sensitivity reaction, or you are also dealing with digestive or autoimmune activity, the Mediator Release Test (MRT) food sensitivity panel is the best entry point. This blood test is the only food sensitivity panel on the market that looks at results based on the inflammatory response in your body. Many food panels look simply at immunological tagging (IgG) that can often yield a false positive, the MRT test looks at 170 foods and chemicals and takes both IgG type 3 and 4 along with the presence of inflammatory chemicals (interleukins, cytokines, prostaglandins, etc.) to assess reactivity response. This panel is used as a GPS of your body where you will remove moderate reactions for 3 months and significant reactions for 6 months while limiting diet to known non-reactive foods, then progressing with an elimination diet reentry approach. As you heal the gut lining with specific supplement regimen and food-as-medicine you will become more resilient and less reactive to foods creating both food freedom and symptom resolution.

Beyond inflammatory response to foods and chemicals, if your body isn’t equipped with the nutrients it needs to stave off free radicals and reduce inflammatory processes you won’t get resolution! If you are dealing with fatigue, hair loss, nerve tingling, or random symptom shifts and you have varied demands on your body from lifecycle or lifestyle changes, or you aren’t ready for a restrictive diet, you may consider starting with the Micronutrient Test which assesses 35 different vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants as a comprehensive report card to your nutritional status.

Note: I strongly recommend taking my Multidefense for at least 1 month leading up to the panel to cover nutritional support as a baseline, then the micronutrient test will be additional needs over a high quality multivitamin.

Although focused on cardiovascular disease, I’d also recommend looking into the Cardiometabolic panel which looks at C-Reactive Protein (CRP) as a marker of inflammation as well as fasting insulin and HgbA1C% to assess blood sugar metabolism. This test also looks at an OmegaCheck score which assesses your omega-3 anti-inflammatory to omega-6 proinflammatory ratio providing guidance on omega-3 supplementation need and diet strategy to reduce proinflammatory food sources.
