Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue. Patients with the condition also have issues with sleep, memory, and mood. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia augments painful sensations by affecting the way the brain processes pain signals.
Stress and Anxiety
Stress and Anxiety impact your health by increasing free radical damage and stress on your cells. We don’t realize the damage as it is occurring daily, and the little symptoms as they arise. Stress impacts our bodies in a variety of ways. Some examples are libido, memory, indigestion, blemishes, headaches, weight gain, muscle pain, nails, hair loss, fatigue and back acne.
I began taking Magnesium in 2013 after it was recommended by a Homeopathic physician. I had been suffering from frequent muscle pain, constipation, migraines, electrolyte imbalance, and fainting. A blood test also showed a deficiency of magnesium and other electrolytes. He recommended Magnesium glycinate because it provides better absorption and less stomach irritation. Based on my history with IBS and reflux, this was the best choice for me.

Nutrient-rich foods and antioxidants
Nutrient-rich food is vital for a health and wellness but they are not as effective at removing free radicals as indirect antioxidants like the little yellow pill that help eliminate 1 million free radicals per second
The answer to aging is simple: reduce oxidative stress and boost the mitochondrial production your cells need to repair and rejuvenate themselves. It’s a two-part approach that the little yellow pill duo takes on by combining NRF1 (mitochodrial repair) and Nrf2 (detoxification) into one powerful solution. Together, they accomplish more than an entire medicine cabinet full of expensive, ineffective supplements (and they take up less room, too).

The Truth about Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is known by baffling abdominal issues consisting of diarrhea, constipation, abdominal cramps and bloating for no other known cause. Doctors usually run tons of tests without finding an actual cause for the issues. It can be caused by stress, anxiety, depression, diet and food allergies, etc. The solution is not clear for most individuals, it takes patience and time to figure out the right diet and stress management for you. My body was reacting to foods and triggering my IBS more frequently after I had children. My IBS was severe, resulting in a swollen belly that looked 6 months pregnant (with gas), indigestion, abdominal cramps, nausea and diarrhea. My gastric issues have been ongoing my entire life with constipation and reflux. The symptoms often required rest, heating pads, prescription Bentyl, activated charcoal and sleep to recover.

You are what you Eat!
As a nurse, I have always told my patients it is important to eat your fruits and vegetables but I never really understood the importance until 2013. Over the years, I have overcome many obstacles, including diet and fitness. I realized that my diet as a young adult and child was lacking fruits, vegetables and healthy carbohydrates. My diet consisted of junk food (processed cereals, pastries and dessert). I rarely ate a vegetable or fruit and my body paid for it. Read More You are what you Eat!
