Hi everyone! January 2016 has begun!  With each year that comes, many of us set new resolutions including beginning a new diet and exercise plan.  While these are wonderful goals, I’d like to introduce another goal that I hope you will consider….that of detoxification of your body! We are all exposed to every day toxins – ie…. chemicals, plastics, cosmetics, cleaning products, and many more.  These harmful agents really take a toll on our health and overall sense of well being. At American Wellness & Rehab clinic, we have several detox programs to chose from.  Whether you want a quick 3 day detox to a lengthy 28 day detox, we have top of the line, nutraceutical grade detox kits available.  Detoxification programs put much of the focus on purifying the blood stream and lymphatic system. The liver and kidney are two of your organs that will for ever be grateful for this extra detox help as they work super hard to protect all areas of the body from these impurities and harmful agents.  Choosing the month of January for your yearly detox program is a wonder time, as most of us can feel and sense the need for a boost and super charge.  A detox this time of the year will help to boost your immune power, give you increased vitality and energy. Your sleep pattern and quality will also improve.  Of course, when you improve in all of these areas, you are going to notice an improvement in your overall mood as well.   Do not put it off any longer….super charge your body and jump start into a wonder new year – Detox now!

The Affects of MTHFR on your Health

By on May 3, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Do you suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar, fatigue, or insomnia? You may be suffering from a gene mutation known as MTHFR. In my functional medicine practice, I am seeing quite a few patients that are having a difficult time with Methylation. Methylation is a process in which every one of our cells are allowed to do something for us.  In order for Methylation to occur, there are certain genes that go and turn special enzymes on that changes certain vitamins into active helpers.  Folic acid, B6, and B12  are these very special helpers.  Each one of our cells go through this Methylation process 500,000 to a million times a day – just one of our cells!!  Incredible right?  What is not so incredible, is that daily exposures to toxins and chemicals cause our genes to mutate – stopping this Methylation process. There are many symptoms one may experience if Methylation does not occur such as fatigue, depression, anxiety, Bi- Polar disease, Schizophrenia, and many more.  I have specific tests in which to identify this mutated gene (MTHFR) along with individualized protocols that allows  you to begin a correct Methylation process once again. I would love to help you understand this very common but fixable problem and get your health back on track Check out this video for a brief but simple explanation of...

Every cell in our body has the ability to convert the nutrients from our diet into energy for us to use.  This takes place inside the Mitochondria (power house) of each cell.  For those of you that feel your diet is ‘pretty good’, and that you are taking your vitamins and still feel quite fatigued, there may be other causes of the Mitochondria to fail.  Those of you who feel that maybe your diet isn’t the best – Lets work on these changes together!. The mitochondrial function is one of the many important things that I assess when you come in for a health evaluation.  Don’t let chronic fatigue over take your life.  There are things you can change, add, or eliminate that can improve your energy level.  Please call our clinic for an evaluation where I will spent the time with you that is necessary to help you move forward to a new healthy, vibrant you! Stay tuned for future discussions on chronic fatigue and Mitochondrial...
