A Lifestyle Regimen to Thrive By

Three primary factors direct the course of human existence in the 21st century. They are: Nutrition (including supplementation), Toxicity, and Physical activity. We must learn to healthfully manage life’s three dominant influences to enable our cells to use water and oxygen, control cellular aging, and promote ultimate wellness.

Happy Cells, Happy Body: Control Cellular Aging Via Epigenetics to Generate Health and Wellness

Nutritional biochemist, B. Wm. (Bill) Downs, owner of Victory Nutrition International and formulator of many of the world’s most innovative, scientifically validated, and effective nutritional supplements states that “disease results from the cells reduced ability to use oxygen and water.” Bill refers to this life smothering phenomenon as “suffocating cell syndrome.” It makes perfect sense that dysfunction related to the body’s most important molecules will throw a wrench in the works, causing cellular machinery to go hay wire. Damaged metabolism…

Two misconceptions regarding back pain treatment have recently been brought to our attention.

Protein and Stroke Risk Reduction

Protein and Stroke Risk Reduction

A relationship has been established between protein in the diet and the risk of stroke. Stroke occurs in around 795,000 Americans every year and causes approximately 137,000 deaths.

The importance and significance of protein in the human diet, such as that provided by Organic Super Protein, has always been underestimated. Recent findings touting protein’s role in weight loss and…

An Apple a Day Really Does Keep the Doctor Away

The bulk of calories in their diet came from healthy fats, fish, and animals, whereas the physical bulk came from plants. Medical anthropologists consider them the healthiest humans to have ever inhabited the earth. They were healthy, despite short life expectancies that resulted from infectious…

Don’t be a New Year’s Resolutionary

Don’t be a New Year’s Resolutionary

The new year is upon us. We get a chance every 365 days to make a few resolutions and get a fresh start. Being a trainer and wellness consultant I’ve had the opportunity to witness this phenomenon first hand for 34 years. My established clients and I used to dread the first two weeks of January. We knew that the gym would be full of new or newly returned members, wandering aimlessly hoping to happen upon a machine or a…
