Let’s be honest, no one ever wants to suffer with illness of any kind. Isn’t life more fun when we are healthy, vibrant and strong?
How about you what would you like to change about your health and wellbeing? Or if you are healthy what is the one disease that scares you? The one you want to hedge your bets against at all costs?
Is it obesity?
Is it diabetes?
Is it heart disease?
Is it chronic fatigue?
Is it osteoporosis?
Is it Cancer?
There are many things we can do to support our health and maintain our best chance at being disease free, let’s review just a few.
1. Hydrate your body
Just as you need to clean your external body to be healthy it’s even more vital that you give your cells pure water to clean your insides. You have trillions of chemical reactions occurring throughout the day and each one of the reactions leaves a bi-product or waste product. Your cells need this water to cleanse and remove these bi-products out of you tissue and ultimately out of you body via your breath, your bowel movements and your urine. The appropriate amount for you to drink in ounces will = .66 x Your Body Weight. So for myself it is .66 X 125 lbs = 82.5oz per day. To figure out how many cups that is, divide by 8 (there are 8 ounces in one cup). I need to drink a little over 10 cups of water each day.
2. Cleanse your colon
We are all exposed to thousands of toxins everyday through the pesticides on our foods, the pollution in the air, the chemicals in our water and of course any medications we take. These toxins and our typical American diet leave us vulnerable to digestive imbalances which jeopardize our immune system, our blood sugar balance, our energy levels, our bones, our heart our body weight and leave us vulnerable to all of our diseases from cancer to diabetes to osteoporosis. When your liver and colon are not supported they cannot efficiently do their job... it’s like never taking the garbage out of your house! And when we never take the garbage out what shows up? That’s right, rats! They love garbage. Candida, parasites and other unhealthy microorganisms are the rats in our body. These microorganisms can cause leaky gut creating allergies, headaches, weight gain and disease.
3. Reduce the toxic burden in your body
The reason many of the diseases we see today appear with age is because over time these accumulated toxic burdens become greater, leading to the breakdown of tissue and organ function. Don’t let that happen. We have several medical foods and targeted nutrients that can stop and reverse this process! We also invested in an infrared sauna for our patients to help your body rid these toxins from your cells and pass them safely through your skin as sweat. Did you know 40% of your sweat is toxic material? And did you know that in an effort to protect you from these toxins your body has wisely deposited them in fat? Yep, so as we detoxify, guess what starts to melt away? You guessed it FAT!
Oh, and did I mention that by doing just these 3 health enhancing opportunities you will lose weight, reclaim a flatter tummy and lose the bloat that we all dislike? That's right, we don’t lose weight to get healthy. When we get healthy we will lose weight…FAT weight, and maintain that healthy weight by managing our toxic burden!
These are just 3 of the exciting ways you can support your body everyday! To learn 4 other vital health enhancers join us at the

The Fit, Fun & Fabulous Program is centered around your biological age, determining what it is and reversing it through healthy lifestyle choices and anti-inflammatory medical foods. When your biological (epigenetic) age is older than your chronological age, you are at increased risk for getting and dying of cancer, reports a new Northwestern Medicine study.
And the bigger the difference between the two ages, the higher your risk of dying of cancer.
"This could become a new early warning sign of cancer," said senior author Dr. Lifang Hou, who led the study. "The discrepancy between the two ages appears to be a promising tool that could be used to develop an early detection blood test for cancer."
Hou is chief of cancer epidemiology and prevention in preventive medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and co-leader of the cancer prevention program at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
"People who are healthy have a very small difference between their epigenetic/biological age and chronological age," Hou said. "People who develop cancer have a large difference and people who die from cancer have a difference even larger than that. Our evidence showed a clear trend."
Dr Hou’s research focused on blood values to determine the biological age. With the Fit Fun & Fabulous Program we focus on biological indicators as defined by Tufts University. These indicators help us determine your biological markers for heart health, muscle strength, body fat percentage and waist to hip ratio. We then average these ages to determine your overall biological age. The exciting thing about biological age is it can and should be younger than your chronological age and it’s within YOUR control!
Dr Hou found that for each one-year increase in the discrepancy between chronological and biological ages, there was a 6 percent increased risk of getting cancer within three years and a 17 percent increased risk of cancer death within five years. Those who will develop cancer have an epigenetic age about six months older than their chronological age; those who will die of cancer are about 2.2 years older, the study found.
"Our results suggest future researchers should focus on the epigenetic-chronological age discrepancy for its potential to show a big picture snapshot of human health and disease at a molecular level," said first author Yinan Zheng, a predoctoral fellow at Feinberg.
