Designs for Health Product Line
I have been in practice now for over 20 years, and I’ve learned a lot! If you know me well at all, you know that I believe that food is medicine, which means you should not need many supplements if you have a healthy diet. There are a few things, however that sometimes diet is not enough.
I am happy to announce our partnership with Designs for Health. DFH offers professional grade nutritional supplements that are based on extensive scientific studies. Their products are research driven, synergistic formulations with meaningful quantities of beneficial ingredients. You can be assured that you are getting EXACTLY what the label says, unlike most over the counter supplements.
I’ve put together a list of products that have come up over and over in my experience that you may benefit from. Their products are available through physicians only. We carry most of these in our clinic, but as my patient you can also purchase directly on line.
If you have any specific issues that are not mentioned here, please contact me and we will help you to pinpoint what you need. You can also click on this link to see the full range of products available to you.
MIND & MOOD
THINGS THAT HELP SYSTEMICALLY
Curcum-Evail (This is a BIG one!)
Reduces systemic inflammation, which is the basis of most pain and disease. Reduces allergic reactions, reduces autoimmue activity (RA, MS and Crohn’s), has anti-cancer properties (breast, prostate, colon, pancreatic, glioma and ovarian) antimicrobial, antiviral, GI protection and healing, cardiovascular protection, brain protection, liver protection, toxic metal chelator, and antioxidant. JUST SHUT UP AND TAKE IT, RIGHT?
A high potency100 million CFU probiotic. The importance of probiotics is becoming more and more evident, both in relation to gut health and the immune system, but more importantly the Gut/Mind connection. Those little critters in your gut can actually affect your mood and cognitive abilities! They also control and trigger cravings. If you have an unhealthy gut microbiome they send messages to your brain to send more bad guys down their way. Probiomed 100 will quickly populate your gut with all the good guys. I suggest everyone on our weight loss program use this.
Unless you eat several cans of sardines or anchovies every week, you need and Omega3 supplement. There has been meta-analysis that shows benefit for hear health and reduction of cardiac death. Cognitive function is another big one. Remember when we were told that fish was brain food? Well it is! Other proven benefits include systemic inflammation, healthy joints, balanced mood, hydrated skin and eyes and immune system health.
I have taken over 24 hours of continuing education courses in the use of CBD for health. There are outrageous claims that it can cure just about anything. What I did learn for sure is that the product MUST BE FULL SPECTRUM, meaning it must contain some THC, it must be organic, it must be 3rd party tested and the dose must be 600 to 1500 mg before there is benefit. This quality formula fulfills all of the criteria.
