I’m a huge proponent of taking matters into your own hands, listening to how your body feels and customizing your lifestyle to honor your unique needs and desires. This approach has served me beautifully in my own healing and wellness journey. 

I also have a team of talented practitioners that I rely on to support me in keeping my body on track. Over the years, this has changed dramatically and has included bodywork, nutrition, therapists, physical therapy and more. 

As a clinical nutritionist, I can easily see how regular visits with my private clients help them stay on track and ahead of the game. The muscle testing protocols that I use allow me to evaluate the function of bodily systems and identify immune challenges, toxicity issues like heavy metals and chemicals, nutrient deficiencies, deficits in function, and other issues that interfere with optimal health and vitality. 

As a society, our view of how microbes affect the body is limited. We tend to only suspect bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites as potential culprits when we feel sick with cold or flu symptoms, intestinal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. But the presence of microbes in your body does not always cause symptoms.  

Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen a viral family popping up in many of my clients. A few of them have felt ill, but most of them have not. And yet they knew something wasn’t right as the virus was interfering with proper bodily function. For some, it made old issues flare (skin rashes, belly discomfort, etc.), while some just felt tired or “not right”. 

They attributed how they were feeling to their busy lives, stress or lifestyle choices if they hadn’t been eating well or drinking enough water. And those things alone can and do interfere with proper bodily function. But without the proper support to eradicate these microbes, their bodies may have continued to lose function, experience an increase in symptoms over time, and work their way towards significant health challenges without ever knowing how it all started. 

If you don’t have talented practitioners that support your efforts, I highly encourage you to begin a search and experimentation process to find out what services are available in your area and what services will work well for your body and lifestyle. It has been my experience that your needs are likely to vary at different times in your life. 

We live in a complicated world and we need the support of others to make the most of our health. Our bodies require support in eliminating hidden issues that can be highly problematic, such as the presence of unhealthy microbes. 

If you don’t know what type of practitioner to look for, hit reply and tell me what your needs are. I’d be happy to point you in the right direction and share any resources I’m aware of. 

You need amazing health to have the life you dream of. And there’s nothing I want more for you.
