June 2014 Newsletter – The Adrenal Summit, Viggor, and Cleanse for Your Dog?

As I look out my window this morning it looks like summer has finally arrived! The grass is nice and green, the dandelions are popping up, and the sun is shining! It looks like a busy month here and I have a feeling the summer is going to fly by.

I thought I’d share some family good news items. Zach is on his way to our nation’s capitol for the summer. He has a Sports Marketing internship with the Washington Nationals so will be getting paid to be around baseball and get first hand marketing experience. Pretty awesome – congratulations Zach!! Mollie will be graduating from high school in a few weeks and soon after that her college adventure starts. She will be attending Northeastern University in Boston and playing soccer. She reports in early August for training. Needless to say I am very proud of my kids and their accomplishments!

I have lots of stuff to share this month so the newsletter is a bit longer than normal. As you know, I usually don’t promote products (except for “the Cleanse”) in the newsletter, but this month I make an exception to introduce you to Glen Depke and his Adrenal Summit. This is something you definitely want to explore. See below for details.

I am excited to announce that I have been selected to be a contributor to a new awesome health site targeted for men called Viggor. I will tell you more about that below also. And, a cleanse for dogs? Why not!

The Adrenal Summit – Well Worth Participating!

Meet Glen Depke, Depke Wellness, and his awesome program The Adrenal Summit. I met Glen several years ago at a wellness seminar. At the time he worked for Dr. Mercola in the Chicago area. He has since moved on to his own practice in sunny Southern California. Glen is an awesome practitioner and educator. His newsletters are filled with important information and I’ll often post and tweet them to my network.

Earlier this year he orchestrated The Adrenal Summit. It consists of thirteen interviews with specific topic experts. While it is called The Adrenal Summit it addresses much more. It connects the dots between adrenal health and the many areas that influence it including diet, exercise, food sensitivities, blood sugar management, stress management, immune system health, thyroid health, emotional health and more.

The interviews have been recorded and you can purchase the series for $97. It is a great deal as all the practitioners offer free gifts. But unlike what you often see, these free gifts are of real value. I strongly encourage you to see what Glen has to offer. As I said earlier, I don’t usually hawk other people’s products. But this is well worth it. I have personally listened to all the interviews myself and have gained a greater understanding of these issues. Here is a link to The Adrenal Summit home page.

Viggor

Never underestimate the power of networking! Several months ago I was introduced to David Guinther by a mutual friend in Madison. David is an awesome guy. In a nutshell he is a prostate cancer survivor who now devotes significant energy to helping other men live healthier. He offers education and information to both help prevent prostate cancer and to support those who are currently battling it. While we don’t hear much about it, prostate cancer will impact 1 in 6 men at some point in their life.

David has several health ventures going. One of them is Viggor – which David calls, “… a guiding light on your journey to improve your health and quality of life. Our Expert panel is driven by a common desire to freely share their training, experience, research, insights, and knowhow with you…” We are just up and running, but check it out; there is something there for everybody! http://viggor.com/

In addition to David and myself there are two more contributing experts. Meet Dr. Geo Espinosa, a naturopathic doctor recognized as an authority in integrative management of urological and prostate conditions. Dr. Geo is the founder and director of the Integrative Urology Center at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City.

Together, David and Dr. Geo created XYWellness a company focused on integrative approaches to improving the health of men diagnosed with serious urological conditions. David and Dr. Geo have been inspirational and supportive in getting me back on track in writing my book on men’s health. You’ll be hearing more on that in coming months.

The fourth contributor/expert at Viggor is David’s wife Amy Guinther. She is an acupuncturist and owns Madison Acupuncture and Complimentary Medicine.

Cleanse for Dogs?

I thought I had seen it all until one of my clients sent me a newsletter from an holistic veterinarian based in Vancouver, British Columbia promoting his “Clean and Lean Machine Program” for dogs!! Sure enough, it is a doggie cleanse and he uses Standard Process products. Here’s a link to his website http://peterdobias.com/ and here’s a link to where he describes the cleanse http://us6.campaign-archive2.com/?u=7cc70f055eb2ab88accdc27e5&id=03411f239d&e=13d2429e6d

May 2014 Newsletter – Meet My New Nutrition Hero

I’d like to introduce you to Dr. Randy Tent, DC, ND, and PhD. You’re probably thinking – that’s sure a lot of initials – he must be a smart guy! And he is! He is one of four speakers at a conference I’ll be going to in August called Symposium on Nutrition. I have attended workshops in the past with the three other speakers – Dr. Stuart White, Dr. Chad Guess, and Dr. Davis Brockenshire – which is why I was interested in the conference in the first place. I had never heard of Dr. Tent. Who was he? Dr. Brockenshire had mentioned that I could view one of his lectures on YouTube to get an idea. To put it bluntly – he made quite an impression.

What makes Dr. Tent different than many of the other speakers I hear is that his talks are geared to the public, rather than practitioners. He offers quarterly talks free of charge in his native Michigan. If you want to spend two valuable hours learning some very interesting stuff I suggest you watch this video that has gone “viral” with over 100,000 views: The Exploding Auto-Immune Epidemic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8FCJ_VPyns

I usually don’t do this, but I am featuring the same article as last month about the biome. It was at the bottom of last month’s newsletter and I’m not sure everyone found it. It is very important – remember – it all starts in the gut!

I hope you enjoy Dr. Tent and let me know what you think.

The Biome: Yes, It Is All About the Gut

Among the latest and greatest breakthroughs of modern medicine is the mapping of the human genome with its vast potential for gene based therapies. I find this work extremely interesting although I’m not exactly sure where it will lead. What’s even more interesting is the work being done to explore the genome of what is living in our gut that is not human. This is referred to as our microbiome. It is the trillions of bacteria and other microscopic living organisms that are an integral part of us. They are found on our skin, in our mouth, throughout the inside of our body, and most famously in our gut (our stomach, small intestines, and large intestines).

Cleanse Special Extended For One More Month

Last month I offered a special incentive for those embarking on the 21 day Purification Program. Quite a few of you took me up on my offer and I received many compliments about the free book 1° of Change. I will continue the special offer for each full purification kit you order you will receive a free copy of the book. The day by day recipes and new shake recipes have been a big hit with clients.

As I mentioned last month the 21 day Purification Program from Standard Process keeps getting better! For those of you who have done it in the best there are some new refinements. They finally mention quinoa as a key food and call it a “pseudo” grain. It has replaced brown rice as an allowable food.
