The Path to Create Health In One Phone Call

dr-karen-relaxedYesterday I had a phone call which reminded me of why I chose the “road less traveled” in my career. (The path of creating health versus treating disease). Let me tell you about the call. I will not use names of course to protect confidentiality.

A young man had been experiencing significant daily pain for many years due to an autoimmune condition. When I heard his story, I knew that optimizing his nutrition could really support his health plan. His doctors had suggested the SCD Diet (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) which had helped him but was too restrictive to keep as a long term lifestyle. I was able to share with him my Clear the Way Detoxification Program.

I explained to him the role of the gut in our immune function and the need for the liver to be supported. I also described the role of Vitamin D in immune function and how optimizing his diet with a low glycemic, nutrient dense eating plan could help him.

He is committed to the Clear the Way Detoxification Program for three months.  I felt such gratitude to be able to help a person in need who has struggled to find solutions to his significant health challenge.

This is why I do what I do. Every day I am able to guide someone on their health journey. We need more voices communicating this message.

I have to give credit to Sanoviv Medical Institute for the opportunity to take groups on my  Health and Education Retreats. It is here that I have learned this functional approach to creating health.

You and Your Cell Signaling

mitichondria-inside-cellCell signaling plays a pivotal role in all degenerative conditions that are the main focus of all disease today.

I am holding a webinar Monday October 3 at 6pm Pacific to explain more about this process and how it uncovers a whole new approach to nutritional science. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

There is a cell signaling process called “The  Nrf2 Pathway” that Dr David Perlmutter says is

the master regulator of antioxidant, detoxification and cell defense gene expression. It is now recognized that a variety of natural products act directly upon the Nrf2 pathway activating this life-sustaining part of our DNA. These include sulforaphane, as mentioned, turmeric, green tea extract, as well as coffee”

It is for these reasons that so much research has been carried out trying to explore how activating this life-sustaining pathway may have critically important applications for our health and longevity.

The Nrf2 pathway has been especially studied in various brain degenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, as well as autism, to name a few.

In a University of Colorado Study titled, The clinical potential of influencing Nrf2 signaling in degenerative and immunological disorders, they concluded,

The Nrf2 cell signaling pathway has been demonstrated to contribute to the regulation of a wide variety of antioxidant, detoxification, and cell survival genes. Under normal conditions, Nrf2 activation plays a largely protective, beneficial role, which has led researchers to examine ways in which individuals might harness Nrf2 activation for health benefits, including exercise, diet, dietary supplements, and pharmaceuticals.”
