What Stops You from Reaching your Health Goals?

Gut=brain axis and health

You can have a great diet.   You can take first rate supplements,

BUT if your gut isn’t working right, you don’t get the benefits.

Bottom Line is that you need to build healthy digestion,  If your digestion isn’t up to par, you won’t be able to use the nutrition to create health.

The Gut-Brain Axis is the communication system between the brain and the trillions of bacteria and enzymes living within our intestines – our gut microbiome.

So, improve your gut and you improve your brain, your digestion, your nerves,  your immune system.

This is the most important scientific discovery for human healthcare in recent decades.

How Mitochondrial Dysfunction Can Cause Low Energy and Degenerative Disease

The following information regarding the underlying issues related to degenerative diseases comes from Dr. Anthony Martin:

“Nearly every conversation or consultation I had with patients started with some variation of this question: “How’s your ENERGY on a scale of 1-10?”

“The answer to this question gave me good insight into what was happening with the patient. Most people are tired (and oddly enough) they don’t sleep well).

“When they do have energy, it doesn’t last. They’re dragging their feet most of the day, especially in the evening.

“Let’s face it, it is hard to have energy if your hormones, gut, immune system, or metabolic health are a mess.

“A few weeks ago, I was driving when the low tire pressure indicator on the dashboard of my truck lit up. I added some air to the tire and didn’t think twice about it. Then, about a week later, the low tire pressure indicator lit up again. When I got home I checked the tire and sure enough there was a tiny screw embedded in it. My tire had a slow leak. When you’re fatigued (or have lower energy) the same thing happens to a critical part of your cells. Your mitochondria have a slow leak.

WHY MITOCHONDRIA MATTER

“Your mitochondria are the batteries of your cells. If you’re struggling with energy, then your mitochondria are the problem. In life, you know that more isn’t always better. But, when it comes to your mitochondria…MORE is BETTER.

“If you have more batteries — you’ll have more energy. Also, you want BIGGER and HEAVIER mitochondria as well. In short, you want a lot of giant and healthy mitochondria.

“UNFORTUNATELY, that’s not the case for most people. Many suffer from MITOCHONDRIAL DYSFUNCTION. This means they have fewer mitochondria, and the ones they do have are smaller and inefficient. It’s why they’re tired. It’s why they’re dragging their feet all day. And it’s why their energy isn’t what it used to be. (It’s also why they have brain fog…and even pain!)

“You should know that mitochondrial dysfunction can lead to serious health problems like Type-2 Diabetes, Heart Disease, Dementia and Alzheimer’s, and cancer. Mitochondrial dysfunction is one of the first steps to most chronic diseases. This brings us to the million-dollar question…

WHY DO MITOCHONDRIA GO BAD?

“What causes them to break down, die off, or become less efficient?

“The same thing that leads to all diseases: Free Radical Damage, Leaky Gut Syndrome and High Circulating Insulin.

“We call them the 3 SEEDS of DISEASE because any of them will cause inflammation, and that inflammation will lead you down a path toward disease.

“What’s interesting is that for some chronic inflammation will lead to heart disease, for others Alzheimer’s or dementia and some other people are inclined to end up with an autoimmune disease or suffer with hormonal issues.

“You can reverse engineer it back to mitochondrial dysfunction caused by inflammation and the inflammation was caused by either, or all three – Free Radical Damage, Leaky Gut Syndrome, or High Circulating Insulin.

So, when I ask, “How’s your ENERGY on a scale of 1-10?” and they respond with some variation of “Not good” then I know one of the seeds of disease (or all of them) have been going on for long enough to cause inflammation and that has now caused mitochondrial dysfunction.

“When I talked with the patient about how to overcome their symptoms and fix the underlying problem, I start with gut health, metabolic health, and reversing free radical damage.

“Your mitochondria can bounce back. You just have to tackle the underlying cause.”

This is vitally important data from Dr. Anthony Martin.

If you recognize any of these issues in yourself, then we have some suggestions. Qgenics’ mission is to help more people have better health. We can help with ideas that will help correct the underlying issues of chronic inflammation, mitochondrial dysfunction and poor metabolic health.

Diet and lifestyle changes are very important. Cut refined sugar, high carbohydrate foods and ultra-processed foods from your diet. Eat more lean proteins and vegetables. If you are eating a lot of fruit (because you think it’s healthy) cut back to just eating the equivalent of a small handful of fruit a day. Also, increase your movement by doing some kind of exercise at least 5 days a week. Even a short walk around your block will help. Start out doing whatever you can and build up from there.

To help this process, we have developed a supplement called Metabolic Boost. It’s 100% natural and contains plant-based ingredients designed to reduce inflammation, boost mitochondrial function and correct metabolism.

Attacking these issues with lifestyle changes and
supplementation can help improve many health issues.

What are the reasons you can’t sleep?

Close up shot of sleeping woman on white bed

Okay, not getting enough sleep seems to be very common. Ad after ad for pills (both natural and chemical) to help you sleep are advertised on the TV, in social media, emails, etc. etc.

There are many reasons you can’t sleep, a lot of people think they need melatonin and others want to knock themselves out with natural herbs such as valerian root or kava kava.

A much better solution is to figure out what is going on and address that.

First, it may be due to what you are eating or drinking that has too much caffeine. That is easily handled by not drinking or eating too much (chocolate has caffeine) and if you do make sure it is early in the day.

Don’t over exercise. It creates sleeping problems, try low stress exercise and taking long walks late in the day – walking is low stress & you are getting lots of oxygen. Get out and look around and look into the distance.

A high pulse rate can interrupt your sleep. It can be that your pH is too acidic. It can be due to a potassium deficiency – potassium lowers your pulse rate and calms the nervous system down. And don’t eat too many refined carbohydrates that deplete the body of potassium. You can get a lot of potassium & magnesium from vegetables, if you can digest it. If you can digest, eat 7-10 cups of veggies and salads. Recommended Electrolyes.

Meat, fish and eggs are high in phosphates. This will excelarate the nervous system – don’t eat too much protein especially late at night.

Don’t eat fat at night, as that can irritate the gallbladder and digestion. Eat fats earlier in the day.

Prevent upsets such as watching the news – watch a comedy or read a book.

It may be your adrenals Overactive adrenals will stop you from sleeping. If you are waking up at 2 AM it is adrenal. Too low or two high cortisol – bumps you out of sleep. Improve the Adrenals. Meanwhile you can take the Sleep Aid which is made for the Adrenals. See Adrenal Exhaustion

Hope this helps.

Are you hopeless about ever getting your quality of life back due to Neuropathy?

I know that people with neuropathy are always looking for something to relieve their pain and other symptoms. They might not want to take some medication that just covers up the symptoms, and also has side effects and the herbs that try to cover up the symptoms can have their own bad effects.

But it seems that if you don’t do anything about it, it will only get worse. I’m sure the fear of worsening pushes people to find anything that might help.

I’ve worked with people with neuropathy for almost 17 years; I know what they go through. I even have some understanding about it from the time I badly hurt my knee and leg.

When I felt the tingling sharp pain and burning, I knew it was damaged nerves. I can only imagine what a lot of peoples neuropathy is like after my bout.

But, I jumped right in and started taking the supplements that would restore health to my left leg’s nerves. My leg got better pretty fast, well it was a new injury and I didn’t wait for it to get worse. Nerves will do that if the damage isn’t addressed – it gets worse.

I’m writing this to tell you that building healthy nerves works. Here is my solution Nerve Support with Benfotiamine.

A Gallbladder Attack – what are the symptoms and causes

What is a Gallbladder Attack? – Symptoms and Causes

The gallbladder stores and concentrates bile salts. The bile salts break down fats. The bile salts also extract Omega 3 fatty acids as well as the fat soluble vitamins that need to be extracted from food so it can be used by the body.

Gall bladder attack is when a stone gets stuck in the tube, the liver itself or the gallbladder. The liver makes the bile which then goes down the tube and is stored in the sack. The back pressure of a stone being stuck will cause pain. You can have stomach pain, nausea, right shoulder pain, pain under the rib cage, cramping The right shoulder pain is due to a nerve that goes up to your neck. This causes different right side pain in any right sided muscle and even headaches.

Bile is made with lots of cholesterol. Bile will also eliminate excess cholesterol. High cholesterol can be not enough bile to eliminate from the body.
