The Powerful Benefits of Glutathione

If you haven’t heard of glutathione yet, you will. In terms of staying healthy, it’s one of the most important molecules in the body. To appreciate the power of Glutathione, an understanding is needed of the process of oxidation which damages our cells on a daily basis. But to put it simply, I like to call it the Pac Man (or woman) of the immune system. It makes it’s way throughout the body, chomping on the bad guys.

Essential body processes such as breathing, digestion, energy production, immune function, the detoxification of harmful substances including alcohol, drugs or pollution and hormonal activity, produce destructive substances known as free radicals.The process by which these highly reactive free radicals are produced is oxidation. A good example is a freshly cut avocado turning brown.

Pollution, sun exposure, stress, smoking, excessive exercise, radiation and burnt food accelerate the production of free radicals.

Oxygen literally burns, which is why a cut fruit such as an avocado becomes brown. Squeezing antioxidant rich lemon juice (which is high in vitamin C, another powerful antioxidant) onto cut avocado will prevent oxidation and maintain the color of the fruit. In a similar way, our bodies have the internal resources for the ongoing fight against free radicals, one of the principle defenses being antioxidants such as glutathione. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants, and is a factor in the development of many chronic illnesses and accelerated aging.

There is more to glutathione than its antioxidant capacity. It is also a powerful detoxifying agent and is highly concentrated in the liver as well as being found in every cell of the body. The liver is a miraculous organ with many vital functions that include the ability to detoxify harmful substances in the body. This process by which liver enzymes chemically change wastes and toxins so that they can be dissolved in water and excreted, is known as liver detoxification. There are two phases of detoxification, phase one and phase two.

In Phase One, toxic substances are combined with oxygen (oxidized) to destroy the harmful free radicals This stage produces intermediate, highly reactive toxins that can be more poisonous than the original toxins and they must be further transformed for excretion from the body. This is where glutathione comes in.

In Phase Two the toxins need to be joined together (conjugated) with another substance and converted from a fat soluble into a water soluble state so that they can leave the body through the urine or feces. Depending on their type, the toxins are combined with different substances, via six different chemical pathways. The glutathione conjugation pathway is a major detoxification pathway.

Glutathione in the Diet

Glutathione is made by the body from its component amino acids, glycine, glutamate and cysteine. These amino acids are found in protein foods such as fish, chicken, eggs, meat, lentils, beans and pulses. However, the body doesn’t always convert these building blocks into glutathione very efficiently. Additionally cysteine isn’t always in plentiful supply in the diet. Finally, digestive problems can lead to deficiency, despite adequate intake. Glutathione itself is found in fish, meat, seeds and nuts. However it tends not to survive the stomach acid without being broken down. This is why the IV form of glutathione is the most recommended and potent methods of delivery. This process allows for the maximum absorption and utilization of glutathione immediately.

The Importance of Health and Glutathione

An efficiently working liver is crucial to overall health. Glutathione stores in the liver can be easily depleted. The persistent stress of modern day living and the many thousands of toxic substances in the environment, for example pesticides, pollution, plastics, household cleaners, cosmetics and pharmaceutical drugs, alcohol and chemicals in packaged foods, and stress will all use up supplies of glutathione, leaving the liver vulnerable to toxic damage. People with hepatitis and alcoholics have been found to have chronically low glutathione stores.

If you find yourself in need of strengthening your overall health or immunity quickly, then regular Glutathione IV therapy can assist you greatly. It’s important to note, that consistent dosing is imperative to heal and repair any underlying stress or disease to the body. Therefore, regular IV therapy (once a week or more) can greatly enhance results. To schedule an appointment to receive a Glutathione IV, please contact the office below.

All-Natural DIY First Aid Kit

The season that brings warm tidings and visions of sugarplums often brings sniffles, fever, and flu, too.  Because I prefer to avoid prescriptions if possible, I keep a select few herbs, vitamins, and supplements around for these occasions. These are also my most common recommendations to patients to keep on hand, and to take regularly.

First Aid

  • Bentonite clay: Great for cuts, scrapes, burns, bug bites–you name it!
  • Lavender essential oil : Also great on scrapes, cuts, burns.
  • Frankincense essential oil : I use it as part of a beauty regimine at night, but it’s also great for just about any area that needs healing.
  • Homeopathic Arnica pellets for bruising or pain.
  • Homeopathic Staphysagria pellets for cuts.

Stomach

  • Activated charcoal: I use this every time I suspect I may have ingest extra toxins or heavy metals. Take at night, 2hrs away from any medications or supplements. This is not to be taken long-term as it absorbs nutrients and toxins!
  • Peppermint essential oil–diluted with coconut oil and rubbed on the abdomen, to calm gas or bloating.
  • Ginger tea: Ginger is great for calming nausea, indigestion or heartburn and it’s safe during pregnancy.
  • Pre and probiotics : Taken daily to feed the good gut bacteria to keep you GI tract in-check.

Cold, Cough or Flu

  • Elderberry syrup: This is ideal for use in kids since it’s so tasty for improving their immunity
  • Neti pot: I love my Neti Pot. As soon as I feel a soar throat or feel a post nasal issue coming, I use this to clear out my nasal passages from all the bad offenders. It is very important to use filtered, clean water with this, I’ll also boil ours and then let it cool.
  • Vitamin C: One of my favorite antioxidants that I increase anytime I feel under the weather. Start with 1000mgs twice daily or up to bowel tolerance.
  • Vitamin D3: Vitamin D3 is vital to immune health, especially during the cooler seasons since we aren’t getting as much sun outdoors.
  • Eucalyptus: The oil can be rubbed on the feet or (diluted) on the chest. A face steam of eucalyptus leaves helps clear the lungs and sinuses, and on the go, a few drops of the essential oil rubbed on the hands and then inhaled helps congestion and cough. Has antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Cramps

  • Red Raspberry Leaf: my go-to for PMS symptoms. It tastes very similar to regular black tea and with a little stevia, tastes like sweet tea.
  • Cramp Bark: to soothe even severe cramping that is associated with nausea, vomiting, and sweaty chills. The tea can be drank up to three times per day.

In the end if you find that you weren’t able to target your symptoms as soon as you had hoped, then know that an Immune IV is only a phone call or email away! An intravenous infusion of the Detox IV or Immune IV will help to flush the toxins and excess bacteria out of your body immediately. It will also provide your body with a much needed boost of vitamins to quench your body’s needs for nutrition.

Avoid the Cold and Flu

Avoiding the Cold & Flu Naturally

With the holidays in front of us, it’s time to focus on the next season on the calendar: cold and flu season. While a somewhat less joyful occasion to prepare for, it’s equally as important to help your household stop the spread of germs.

So, why is winter such a potent time for germs? The temperature isn’t to blame on its own; rather, when the thermostat drops, we all naturally engage in habits that are ideal for helping to spread the cold and flu viruses. We hunker down inside to stay warm, we spend more time in close contact with others, we dial back healthy-eating and exercise habits. Generally speaking, we hibernate. While there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s cold outside, there are some strategies you can employ to help stop germs from spreading.

Start with a Healthy Immune System

There’s a strong correlation between building up a healthy immune system and cold and flu prevention. When your immune system is functioning as it should, your body is better equipped to handle germs that might otherwise knock you out. (That’s why you might not get sick from sitting next to someone who’s wheezing—but your friend or partner might.) There’s really no reason not to take an active role in building up your immunity.

Don’t worry About every Germ

Embracing a little dirt in our lives may be a good thing. According to research published in the Journal of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology, living in hyper-sterilized environment with decreased microbial exposure during childhood can actually contribute to the development of autoimmune and allergic diseases later. So let your kids go out in the yard and get a little dirty. (Curious? You can read more in Gilbert’s book, Dirt is Good: The Advantage of Germs for your Child’s Developing Immune System.)

However Disinfect those Germ Hot-spots

A little garden dirt might help you become more resistant to bugs down the road. But there are also areas of your home that are breeding grounds for the germs that can cause illness. According to research conducted by Charles River Laboratories, an international research, and the National Sanitation Foundation International, an independent public health and safety organization, the dirtiest locations in your house may not be where you’d think. Most people guess that bathrooms harbor the most germs, but that’s not always the case. Here’s what the research turned up:

  • According to the Society for General Microbiology, bacteria can divide as quickly as every 20 minutes under the right conditions. (That’s why a disinfecting routine can help kill household germs).
  • A study conducted by Charles River Laboratories found more than 340 different types of bacteria on 30 different objects found in the typical home.
  • Of these 30-some objects, some of the germiest are your dish sponge, your toothbrush holder, your pet’s bowl, the kitchen sink, and the coffee reservoir.
  • Cutting boards and kitchen countertops can be hotbeds for bacteria. According to the NSF, food-prep and storage areas are far more contaminated than your bathroom.

Keep Gut Immunity Strong

The microbes that live in your gut not only help your body digest food — they also help regulate your metabolism, hunger, weight, and immune system. A strong immune system relies heavily on having a healthy, well-functioning gut – as 70 percent of your immune system is in the gut — and probiotics help keep your gut engine humming. Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help reduce inflammation and prevent infection; they may also reduce the severity of a cold or flu. Additionally, making sure your gut has enough nutrients to keep it’s defenses on par is imperative. Gut Be Calm has the perfect mix of vitamins to do so!

Natural Flu Prevention

Natural Flu Prevention

Natural Cold and Flu Remedies

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure … you’ve heard it a million times, but how does it practically relate to illness prevention? In short, giving the body what it needs and keeping a constant supply of nutrients will help ensure that the body can resist any pathogen it encounters.

What can you do to avoid the flu and it’s various strains? Fortunately, it is possible to protect against some cases of illness with natural remedies that boost the body’s amazing natural immune system. Do everything possible to boost your immune system with these helpful tips:

1. Optimize your Vitamin D levels to feed your natural immune response.
2. Avoid sugar and alcohol consumption that normally suppress your immunity.
3. Sleep a minimum of 7-8 hours a night.
4. Receive regular glutathione IVs to enhance your immune system dramatically.

An Oldie but a Goodie

As a young child, as soon as I started complaining of a soar throat my Mom instantly made me gargle with hot salt water. Still to this day, it’s my #1 go-to for soar throat remedies!

To combat a scratchy throat add half a teaspoon or two of salt to a glass of hot water. The salt draws out excess water in your throat’s tissues, reducing the inflammation, and clears mucous and irritants from the back of the throat. The rinse also flushes out bacteria and viruses, which may help whether you’re getting a cold or want to prevent one in the first place.

Other Home Remedies

  1. Garlic – This health-boosting powerhouse is naturally antibiotic, anti-fungal, and antibacterial, garlic can tackle almost any illness. For the most potent effect, finely mince 1-2 cloves of garlic and float in a small glass of water. Drink quickly — if you are sick enough, you won’t even notice the taste. Note: Pregnant women should not take more than 1 clove of garlic medicinally per day, and children often resist this remedy.
  2. Hot liquids – This one is pretty instinctive, but we tend to load up on hot herbal teas and hot lemon water at first sign of illness. The heat helps boost immune system and a variety of herbs can help with infection. Lemon is also a great natural source of vitamin C.
  3. Face steam – In a pinch, make this herbal steam with kitchen herbs. Boil 1-2 cups of water in a large pot. Remove from heat, add 2 teaspoons each of thyme, some rosemary, and oregano. Cover for 5 minutes with a lid, and then remove lid and put face directly over pot with towel covering your head to hold in the heat. Breathe in the steam as long as you can (aim for 15 minutes). This will help loosen congestion and kill viruses and bacteria in the lungs, bronchials, or sinuses.

Glutathione is Mother Nature’s most powerful antioxidant that the body produces innately. But stress, poor diet, lack of sleep, and exposure to the common cold and flu will significantly impair the body’s own production.
