Britony did an amazing job of forming the "newsletter" below as a guide, and also in leading tonight's meeting . . . thanks Brit!
~Also, many of the gals were asking about Dr.Jain, Suneil MD - Scottsdale Natural Medicine, the doc we use in Scottsdale at Rejuvina Health (his assistant Kimberly rocks too) . . .
~And, Sarah's website for Foodbeautiful is amazing!!! She is a personal friend of Britony's and is an amazing resource for holistic food & supplement knowledge/advise.
Britony's "newsletter" for our group below:
**Perfect Food, Garden of Life, 10/day...Obviously the best thing you can consume is raw fruits and veggies. The more you can consume and add to your diet the better. Of course, eat as many veggies as possible, but this Super Green Formula is packed with Phytonutrients, sprouted grains and probiotics and is again a "Whole Food". This company puts out some of the best supplements out there. If you like doing less 'pills' you may want to try the green powders that are out there. The Green powder I really like is Green Vibrance, Vibrant Health, 1 scoop +/day...You can put it in your morning juice drink/shake and it may not be too bad. (You just have to get used to the taste). Also try Rainbow Vibrance (fruits), Vibrant Health, 1 scoop +/day. This may help with making the greens more palpable.
**Bone Strength (Calcium), New Chapter Organics, 6/Day...yet another "Whole Food".
**C Food Complex (Vitamin C), New Chapter Organics, 4/day.
**Complete Probiotics, Mercola Premium Select, 1/day (66 Billion CFU)...Probiotics are some of the best things you can put in your system to get good bacteria working for you instead of all the bad. Sugars, alcohol, coffee, etc are really acidic and increase the amount of bad bacteria in your intestines.
**Cod Liver Oil, Carlson, 10 +/day...I know, a lot. This is KEY to having a healthy and brilliant baby if you're pregnant. (If preg.with the baby's brain forming right now there is noting better you can give it than omega 3's. And if you're breastfeeding, more of the same.) This brand has been proven to be one of the absolute best out there. The others have harmful levels of mercury and toxins. You can also try Krill Oil, Mercola Premium Select, 3/day. When I'm pregnant I tend to lead towards the Carlson's Cod Liver Oil with Lemon and take 15/day. It's great for 'lubricating' the whole system. I'm not a doctor but I truly believe that this aided in the ease of all three of my deliveries. They pretty much "slide" right out. (Sorry if that was more than you'd like to know.) :)
You can find these supplements at most of your more healthy markets (Sprouts, Sunflower, and Whole Foods). Sprouts is my favorite place. They seem to have the best prices. However, the Mercola products have to be ordered from their website. They have some fabulous products as well as very good skin care products. Their whole line is fantastic. When you're on there make sure you sign up for their newsletters. You're receive them twice a week via e-mail. It's always very insightful.
And lastly, some were asking about the cleanse I did. The products used are from Arise and Shine. You can get the products online or drive all the way down to East Mesa. You can find all that info on their website. If you go to their website you can click on 'About Cleansing' to get a bunch in great info and questions answered about their cleanse. If you want to read the cleansing guide, just click on 'Products', click on the photo for the 'Cleansing Kit' and after scrolling down they have the link to their 'Cleansing Guide'. You should get all the info you need to see if it's something that would be good for you and get going. It's not easy!!! But the rewards are spectacular. I really like their products. You may want to start with a 7 Day Cleanse to get a taste for cleansing if you have not done one before. And please know that not all cleanses are what they appear to be. Tons of them are scams and could potentially do more harm than good.
Please know that I am not a doctor! These are products that I've found that work well for me and am in no way telling you you should take these products. You may want to check with your physician before taking any/all of these items I have mentioned above.
Here's to health, Britony"
