“You only look as good as you feel.” We’ve all heard that statement before, and for a good reason…it’s true. When you are in optimal health, you really do look your best. No matter how much time and money we spend on removing wrinkles, touching up grey hair, saturating dry skin with creams, artificially tanning our bodies, and for women maintaining those great looking nails, it’s all just window dressing if you’re not feeling your best. Nothing attracts more attention than the look of a woman or man with optimal health. You can see it in their eyes, their complexion, and most of all, their attitude.

Nutrition plays an important role in how you feel and look. Essential fats, for example, play a key role in your overall health. Your body doesn’t produce essential fats, you only get them in the foods you eat. For women, these fats are needed for the female system to function properly because steroid sex hormones are all synthesized from fat. In addition, essential fatty acids support brain health and protect us from Alzheimer’s, depression, and a whole host of other issues.

Your hormones are the key that unlocks the door and activates every function of the human body from building bones to maintaining healthy skin. If your system is out of balance, for example your sodium to potassium ratios are off, that can impair cell membrane fluidity and communication with hormones. If the cells cannot receive the communication, it doesn’t matter how well the body is producing steroid hormones, there’s a disconnect.

I offer a very simple and accurate saliva test, which, when analyzed by the lab, produces a clear picture of what’s going on inside your body. If a problem is identified, I then work with my clients on an individual basis to balance their systems, not with drugs, but naturally. Sometimes adjustments are as simple as slight changes in diet. Other times, it’s a little more involved. Either way, the end result can be life changing.
