Learn about food upgrades, what to always avoid no matter what, food for mood, finding the meaning behind your cravings, self medicating your way through life, food as medicine, seasonal food, cooling and warming foods, and much more. An instinctive knowledge of all of these factors can increase your longevity and quality of life and create a positive mindset for this often challenging world.
There are times when food, exercise, clean air and water are not enough to create sufficiency and detoxify the body. At that point, it’s important to create a plan that addresses both the initial and maintenance phases of enabling the body to heal.

Understanding the nuances of co-factors, figuring out the root cause of underlying deficiencies, puzzling together symptoms, looking at a life history…all of these are essential to creating a supplement plan that will work.

Learning to live life as a meditation from moment to moment is key to a peaceful life. So many tools are available to facilitate this that one is sure to suit your lifestyle.
Hemp + Cannabis
Hemp and cannabis are potent medicines. Their power is derived from three aspects: cannabinoids, oil, and terpenes and other volatile aromatic compounds. Cannabis is cultivated to focus on cannabinoids and aromatic compounds and is short and shrublike. Hemp is tall and bamboo-like and focuses more on cannabinoids and the oil from the stalk. Cannabis is generally much higher in the psychoactive compound THC and hemp is higher is CBD with minimal THC. Hemp in all of it’s forms and isolates is legal in all 50 states. Cannabis is categorized and regulated as a Schedule One drug and varies from state to state in it’s permissions for use; recreational and/or medical, as well as for what conditions.
Both plants have been used with tremendous success for supportive care for many conditions:
- autoimmune conditions
- TBI and CTE, traumatic brain injury and chronic traumatic encephalitis
- chronic pain
- multiple sclerosis
- bone fractures
- neuropahty and neuropathic pain
- cirrhosis and liver health
- and more

Intravenous nutrition is the fastest most assured way of reaching clinically effective levels of the administered substances in the body. Deficiencies of stomach acid and enzymes or inflammatory gut conditions may inhibit the absorption of a variety of nutrients. IV nutrition bypasses the digestive tract and delivers the nutrients directly into the blood stream for more direct access to the organs and tissues in need.
The exact reasons that you may require an IV delivery system may also create a need for certain nutrients beyond what is possible via the oral route to obtain the desired results. IV Vit C in particular actually has a completely different mechanism of action when administered intravenously than when taken orally.
Some of the improvements you can expect when using IV nutrition include:
immune system support
enhanced athletic performance and recovery
- anti-oxidant boost
- reduced inflammation
- improved methylation
Thermal therapy or hyperthermia utilizes far infrared heat and negative ion generation to support the body’s natural healing abilities. Take advantage of the healing power of energy with your own far infrared device in the comfort of your home.
Temporary relief of:
- Minor muscle pain
- Minor joint pain and stiffness
- Joint pain associated with arthritis
- Muscle spasms
- Minor sprains and strains
- Minor muscular back pain
- Reduces stress and fatigue

- Improves sleep (if associated with pain relief)
- Reduces inflammation (where applied)
- Increases tissue oxygenation (due to increased circulation where applied)
- Provides muscle relaxation such that you may sleep better if you experience occasional difficulty sleeping.
The deep penetrating heat of infrared therapy effectively stimulates metabolic activity, triggering the release of stored toxins through detoxification pathways. Far infrared helps your body to mimic a fever response which is what your body uses normally to fight infection and cancer.
