Chia Detox Shake

If you're in our D.TOXSM program you know shakes become a part of your day and finding a handful of go-to shake or smoothie recipes makes it so much easier to give up those non-D.TOX approved sweet treats! 

Here's a recipe that’s taste-tested and dietitian-approved. If you’re not in the D.TOX program, just substitute the MediClear™ and FiberMend® for a protein powder. I suggest our grass-fed whey protein. The strawberry cream is a great combo with the berries in this shake. I also like to add in Life Greens in the double chocolate flavor for an added nutrient and flavor kick. What’s your go-to add-ins for shakes and smoothies?

Why Gut Health Matters for Metabolism

What organ is the source of greater metabolic activity than the liver, supplies over 70% of the immune system, and consists of 10 times the number of cells than the whole rest of the body put together? The gut!

An amazing and surprising fact: 70% of Americans have digestive symptoms or disease, yet don’t think twice about its impact on their weight and health.

Gut health breaks down due to many factors in our lifestyles and environment. These factors can over-activate the immune system and ultimately cause internal havoc. Conditions such as migraines or chronic headaches, food or environmental allergies, autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome and celiac disease have all been shown to correlate with digestive dysfunction.

Today, we'll discuss the roles of the gut, what factors disrupt its functioning, and tips for improving gut health to ultimately enhance metabolism, weight management and overall health.

8 Uncommon Tips for Women’s Wellness

Women’s health is a complicated matter.

A woman’s well-being is impacted by an intricate balance of hormone systems such as adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones.

As women progress through the decades of life, hormones ebb and flow and can knock each other off track. This oftentimes makes attaining optimal health and weight loss more challenging as women age.

The good news is that we have significant influence over our hormones and genes by what we choose to do or not do in our lives. Many factors impact hormone balance such as nutrition, supplementation, exercise, stress management, sleep and living environment.

Learn how you can use these areas of influence to enhance your well-being!

Spring can feel like the perfect time to start fresh with health goals.

In fact, it's a common time to read about detox regimens that kickstart those efforts.

Not every detoxification regimen, however, is safe or effective. It’s important to not only understand the benefits of detoxification but the ways an individual detox plan can support (or hinder) your body’s own detoxification efforts.

In this three part article series, we'll examine these issues and offer a guide that can help you make the best choices for your detoxification goals.
