Did you know yeast has been used for the process of making beer and wine thousands of years before it was discovered by converting sugar into alcohol?
Did you know yeast is a fungus that helps keep the digestive system and immune system healthy and also helps absorb vitamins and minerals from your food?
Did you know certain species of yeast can induce various diseases in humans and animals?
Candida albicans, for example, can induce infection in the mouth and gastrointestinal tract of humans. And, has been known to be directly tied to cancer since 1913!
There is a very good chance that this very moment you have a yeast overgrowth and don’t even realize it! As according to the molecular biologists at Rice University, 70 percent of all people are affected by Candida, a systemic yeast-fungal infection. Don’t worry, though, as this potentially harmful and preventable health condition can easily be corrected naturally!
Our goal is to help you improve your gut to stay healthy, which is why we invite you to attend our on-demand webinar HERE
During this experience, you will learn about the function yeast plays in the body and what happens when it becomes out of control, thus causing candida.
Did you know 5,000 pounds of rose petals are required to distill 1 pound of pure rose oil, making it one of the most precious and expensive oils on the market?
Did you know a single drop of peppermint essential oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea?

We have access to so much information, studies, and new discoveries it can be difficult to figure out where to start. This is from my facebook group Moms Taking Charge of Digestive Health and I thought I would share.
So often we are just told about MTHFR and the rest of the genes in the methylation cycle are left out. I can’t begin to count the number of times I have heard from clients that as soon as they found out they had a MTHFR snp they were put on methylated vitamins. On top of that I usually here how great they felt, then things started getting worse than before supplementing.
I can’t express enough how important it is that we put any and all test results into context and to avoid supplementing just because of a test result. Test results are great to have but they are just one piece to the puzzle. Which puzzle I am going to talk about in this video.
This first image is a brief, simple overview of a few of the cycles connected to MTHFR. Some of the key takeaways are SAMe is a product of that pathway and used in at least 200 processes throughout the body. Another takeaway is the cofactor vitamin B6 is needed for many of these genes to work well – from the detox/transsulfuration(bottom left) to neurotransmitters(far right). So if there are deficiencies in that vitamin guess what? Those genes are going to have problems whether there is a snp or not!
Did you know that in 2014, approximately 1 in every 68 children were identified as having autism spectrum disorder (ASD)? Today that number is even more disturbing 🙁 How about that this prevalence is more common in boys than girls, with 1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls effected? More current figures estimate prevalence to be closer to 1 in 45 children ages 3 through 17. (This equates to 2% of children in the U.S. who are living with autism!)
No matter what the statistics say, individuals with an autism diagnosis and their families deserve the basic right to maximize the quality of life and live in a world where they are always respected and valued.
Autism does not discriminate and families and individuals of all cultures, ethnicities, and socioeconomic status are affected. The specific cause is currently unknown, however, it is likely to actually be a number of different developmental brain disorders that produce similar presentations. (Most cases of autism are thought to result from a combination of genetic predisposition and triggering environmental events which influence early stages of brain development.)
During this experience, you will finally have the chance to learn holistic techniques to reduce symptoms and find out how functional medicine can help make the future look a lot brighter.
The goal for Functional Autism Awareness on Saturday, August 25th at 1:00 pm CDT is to help you or your loved one learn how to best manage an autism diagnosis through functional health approaches. Hosted by: Salena Rothenberger, D.PSc, CFMP, CHC
There are many myths surrounding autism. (For example, the prevalence of autism has been steadily increasing for the last 40 years.
Truth: The rate of autism has increased by 600% in the last 20 years. In 1975, an estimated 1 in 1,500 had autism. In 2014, an estimated 1 in 68 had an autism spectrum disorder.
Are you aware many brilliant famous minds throughout history are thought to have been on the autism spectrum?
Some notable figures include:
– Albert Einstein
– Amadeus Mozart
– Sir Isaac Newton
– Thomas Jefferson
A well-known name in the autism world is Professor of Animal Science, Temple Grandin. She was diagnosed with autism as a child and is noted as one of the first individuals to publicly share insights about her personal experience of autism. She attributes her ability to think in pictures to helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss.
Functional health approaches are ideal for helping individuals with ASD as the body is viewed as one integrated system rather than a collection of independent organs. By understanding and treating the body as a whole, functional health approaches can help various ranges of abnormalities such as gut imbalances and detoxification issues common in individuals with autism. (Such anomalies often cause the behavioral and mood symptoms of autism.)
We are driven to share the many holistic techniques and benefits functional medicine has to offer as the integrated approach of functional health looks at diet, exercise, detoxification, and supplementation as means to reducing symptoms of autism.
There is no reason you or your family should endure any additional stress. We understand autism comes with enough complications and trying times, and now settling for mediocrity does not have to be your future.
Please invite anyone you feel who can benefit… grandparents, caregivers, and friends are all absolutely welcome!
