Your Wellness (Bare) Essentials
I continually look at new research and integrate it into my comprehensive wellness practice. The knowledge accumulated from reading about health and wellness for 42 years, combined with 33 years of nutritional work with patients and observing their results, has led to my current conclusion that the following supplements are the most important foundational nutritional products for creating a lifetime of wellness.
Mono Pure 1300 or Omega Emulsion
Our current diet is greatly deficient in high quality omega-3's, especially those rich in EPA and DHA. A balance of healthy omegas is critical to many key areas of our health, including our brain, cardiovascular, and immune systems. This nutrient group is quite possibly the most important supplementation for the overall population. It greatly reduces the risk of heart attack and brain degeneration, while promoting and protecting cognitive function and emotional health. Omegas have also shown a significant impact on reducing the risk of certain cancers. Omega Emulsion is the best absorbed, and tastiest form of these healthy omegas. It is highly purified and passes the strictest of screenings for problematic heavy metals, which can be found in lesser quality fish oils. MonoPure 1300, is a new form of Omega 3’s that is the best absorbed capsule version yet, cost less than the emulsion form and it also meets the highest purity standards, is easily digested and very concentrated in EPA and DHA.
It is impossible to easily get the complete family of B vitamins and cofactors from our current food supply. Max B-ND is still the highest quality, thoroughly comprehensive B vitamin complex I have found. Every aspect of our health is affected by numerous members of the B family, including but not limited to brain function, heart health, energy levels, nervous system balance, skin, immune, hair, and liver health and detoxification. It is no surprise that this is the number one selling product in the clinic, as patients often experience a greater sense of well being, increased energy levels and improved brain function within a matter of days after starting Max B-ND.
Coral Legend and Coral Legend Plus
Comprehensive, well-absorbed, high-quality minerals are relatively hard to come by. The coral I choose is famous for its ability to alkalinize the body. It is rich in calcium and magnesium, as well as a broad spectrum of other minerals and trace minerals. This is the specific form of coral that made coral famous, while many on the market are cheaper versions. Minerals are critical to every cell of our body and every aspect of our health.
This is where I recommend nanogreens10 for most patients as a critical part of the wellness phase of their program. Nanogreens10 is a great choice because of the concentrated, high quality, broad spectrum, natural ingredients it contains—all this in the best tasting form of any green product I have ever tried.
The above are The Big 4, The Bare Essentials. I can recommend these to every patient and every patient’s family members. In fact, these Bare Essentials are also highly recommended for your children. I can confidently say this is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your kids. These products will support their brain function in school, and their energy and coordination for sports or any physical activity. I personally take all of the above and much more, as well as give them to my "kids."
Of course there are many more products to choose from when maximizing one’s health quotient and minimizing disease risk. This is where I custom design a program for most of my patients, taking into account their health goals, family history, personal history and how much they want to invest in their health.
In all of the areas above, there are often different products that I will recommend for certain patients. For instance, a new, patented form of omegas has just been released. It is the preferred form for patients with specific cardiovascular cholesterol profiles—high LDL, low HDL and high total cholesterol—who also have a positive heart scan, or who just want to be very careful with their heart. I won't recommend this product for everyone, as it is fairly expensive, but for some it is certainly worth the cost. Of course we are always looking at all the other lifestyle factors that are critical to wellness, including sleep quality and quantity, exercise, stress reduction, and the ever present and very important dietary lifestyle.
Please be consistent with your Wellness Essentials and let me know if you have any questions about the above.
