Are you fatigued? Have you had your thyroid checked? If your liver is sluggish how do you suppose you’ll have enough energy in your body to go towards metabolism or thyroid production? You have to treat the body as a whole and give it what it needs. If you are not willing to change your diet, how do you expect to have more energy? If we get our nutrients from food…how long will your body function properly before it starts to fail on you? Everyone wants a magic pill…so why not take whole food supplements? Sounds like an easy start. Call me and I can help you make sense of it all.
Here is one of the supplements that can help someone with a low thyroid. No, I’m not a drug rep, just a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and this is PART of my job…
Thyroid Px, 75 capsules , $39.50
Features herbs and nutrients to support thyroid function. This formula is the most potent support we offer for healthy thyroid function. Provides the thyroid with the required nutrition and substrates. Supplies the building blocks for T3/T4 hormone synthesis. Promotes the activation of thyroid hormone.
- Supports Metabolism
- Promotes T4-T3 Conversion
- Stabilizes Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies
- Optimizes Body Temperature
- High dose Iodine/Iodide
Thyroid Px is a balanced blend of minerals and botanicals designed to support the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland while simultaneously maintaining healthy metabolic function. Thyroid Px optimizes thyroid function, normal body temperature and general metabolic rate.
This formula can help stabilize thyroid peroxidase immunoglobulins which is essential for normal thyroid activity. The powerful antioxidants selenium and zinc, as well as the myrrh guggul gum resin, help neutralize free radicals that affect iodothryonine-5-monodeiodinase enzyme activity, which is involved in the conversion of T4 to the active T3 hormone.
Iris species contain oleoresins in their roots and are historically claimed to move fluid (lymph). Myrrh Gum Resin is a powerful adaptogen which not only augments the thyroid, but also the liver and kidney. Studies suggest that Commiphoras constituents may help to increase iodine metabolism in the thyroid and T4-T3 conversion in peripheral tissues. Given the important role iodine plays in thyroid function, Thyroid Px includes 12 mg of Potassium iodide in 2 capsules.

We are told we need to be mindful. In Food, exercise, school, meditation and relationships. That goes for our kids, coworkers, friends and family right? Why wouldn’t we nurture nurture our spouse or partner the same as we do our children? There is nor should be no difference. Being mindful in dating is especially important as well. Not a subject most want to talk about and it easily become uncomfortable. I work with this on a daily basis as I train and coach clients on workout habits and eatings habits. We ALL want to look and feel good. My clients express concerns with their bodies and wanting to look “the way they did before” or tone up. Whatever your verbiage, we all love to rock a great outfit but ultimately want to feel comfortable being naked. I know, I know….touchy subject but necessary to address. Dealing with emotional issues and trauma leaves my clients vulnerable and fearful of judgement. I spend a great deal of time with my clients uncovering body issues to help identify those fears so that ultimately we can create new habits around food and nutrition choices. We must do this before we are going to get a handle on our eating disorders and skewed thinking around “what’s healthy”.
I was researching articles today and came across this fabulous article by Cara Kovacs that I think you’ll enjoy and help shed some light on the dating scene or even help you in your current situation whether it’s a boyfriend/girlfriend, fiancé, or spouse because truly, you should never stop dating.
YES, I SAID NEVER…I don’t do that often.
How can you create more space in your life for positive energy? We must eliminate and make space for it! Negative thoughts weigh us down, if you want a positive life you must create it, it doesn’t just happen.
Food is one way we can introduce good energy to our body.
Meditation is powerful for healing and making space.
Exercise and sweating are key to any cleansing of space and feeling lighter.
Holistic health is mind body spirit.
Maybe just drinking out of glass and eliminating plastics is where you want to start. Maybe you can start being “healthy” by updating your cooking to safe cookware that doesn’t emit toxins. Maybe you can learn breathing techniques to help reduce stress and get healthier that way. It just takes ONE action, and WE can BUILD on that!
Call me and we can design a plan that makes sense in your life and doesn’t overwhelm you.

$22.95 5.3oz powder
Versatile prebiotic formula to optimize gut microflora, improve bowel function and support the immune system.
BiotaGen is a distinctive formulation of soluble dietary fiber with prebiotic activities that stimulates growth of colonic populations of beneficial bacteria and enhances gastrointestinal and systemic immune function in multiple ways. BiotaGen combines chicory inulin and oligofructose, highly effective prebiotics, with the immunomodulating actions of larch arabinogalactan and purified yeast beta-glucan.
Chicory-derived inulin and oligofructose are inulin-type fructans best known for their ability to sustain increases in populations of Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, and Eubacterium, an important butyrate-producing species indigenous to the bowel. By escaping digestion and absorption in the small intestine, inulin-type fructans arrive largely intact in the colon where they selectively feed beneficial gut microbiota. In addition, inulin-type fructans promote normal colon transit times, enhance absorption of calcium and magnesium, favorably modulate lipid levels, improve gut mucosal barrier and immune function, regulate intestinal epithelial cell growth, and reduce the number of potentially harmful bacterial species.
Arabinogalactan, a polysaccharide derived from the Western Larch tree, is a highly soluble dietary fiber that enhances immune function by promoting cytokine production and increasing the number of natural killer cells. Indigestible by human enzymes, arabinogalactan exerts prebiotic properties including the ability to selectively stimulate Lactobacillus species. Arabinogalactan is metabolized to short-chain fatty acids acetate, butyrate, and propionate and reduces ammonia production.
Beta-glucan, a glucose polysaccharide prebiotic fiber, has broad, beneficial effect on immune function through enhancement of monocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells. Beta-glucan stimulates immune response to a wide spectrum of pathogens, including fungal (Candida albicans), Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus), and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) microorganisms.
BiotaGen is recommended to nutritionally support optimal gastrointestinal function, promote populations of healthful colonic bacteria, and enhance gastrointestinal and systemic immune function. BiotaGen® works synergistically with probiotics to assure intestinal microflora balance. Available in both powder and vegetarian capsule form.
