Biohack Your Future

Biohacking is the future of healthcare.  Health and wellness is evolving rapidly with a new focus on health prevention and health promotion.  Biohacking incorporates nutrition, fitness and lifestyle modifications to impact quality of life and promote wellness.  Biohacking has become a unique experience as each individual tweaks their lifestyle to develop routines that enhance their own unique bodies.  There is a simple step to make the most intense impact on your genetics using nutrient-rich substances but most people have never even heard of it, much less understand the potential impact it has on their health.  The remarkable phenomenon is nutrigenomics which brings high quality nutrient-rich supplements to the table.  The fact is that not all supplements are created equal.  Many supplements actually cause more damage creating an over flow of nutrients that are harmful to the body.  The biohacking revolution is evolving exponentially with nutrigenomics.  Nutrigenomics provides people with a unique wellness experience.   Nutrigenomics uses naturally occurring phytonutrients, coenzymes and antioxidants to activate pathways in the body that impact genetics.  Nutrigenomics enables the body to create its own antioxidant enzymes to impact stress in every cell of the body.  This enables the body to rejuvenate and repair itself at remarkable rate.   It is so simple and effective that many people feel its like the fountain of youth.  Nutrigenomics continues to evolve and adapt to enhance the biohacking experience enabling biohackers like myself to become the best version of themselves.  It provides vital nutrients to enhance the entire body including internal organs, skin and cells.  There is no other pathway more powerful at anti-aging as the Nrf2 pathway.  Activating this pathway reduces oxidative stress which is the cause of more than 200 diseases.  Oxidative Stress is recognized in the scientific community as the leading cause of disease and aging.  There are more than 93,000 published studies on oxidative stress published in the National Institute of Health Library.  If you are in the medical field, you know the NIH is the library of choice, it is where you want your research article to live.  The fact that oxidative stress is the leading cause of aging is huge.  Let’s make it simple for anyone to understand.  I was 30 years old and felt like a 60 year old.  The stress and tension had accumulated due to poor diet, stress and anxiety creating disease in my body.  My bad genes turned on like a fire, every breathe I took made it worse until I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.  

The good genes of energy, vitality and vigor were shut OFF permanently.  Well I used to think it was permanent but it turned out my answer was biohacking.  Let me explain the pain a little further.  Due to the build up of toxins, allergens and free radicals my body was breaking down cell by cell since childhood.  The junk food I ate was filled with additives and toxins that created an exponential impact on my physical body.  I began with fatigue, migraines and pain in my right shoulder.  As the years passed my pains expanded and radiated down the right side of my body.  Eventually my entire right side was numb and tingly.  Now, let me get really simple, imagine a piece of clay that you lay to dry.  The clay shrinks and becomes dry and brittle.  Eventually it loses at its moisture until it cracks and breaks into infinite pieces.  That is what was happening in my body, all my muscles were shrinking and tightening.  The stress and tension was building leading me to illness and eventual death.  Yes, I said it, death.  The fact is if you don’t target the rusting of your body, now, death is the end result.

Fast forward to March of 2018 when everything began to change.  I took a leap, for my health and my family.  My children deserved to have a healthy mom that could love and nurture them.  I deserved to put myself first.  I deserved to advocate for myself and treat myself right, literally.  So, I did, I started to incorporate holistic treatments and nutrigenomics to improve my quality of life.  I was looking to improve all my symptoms of disease and illness but I experienced exponential health benefits from biohacking.  The first thing to return was my energy, I finally didn’t feel exhausted morning, noon and night.  Next, my pain started to dwindle day by day until is disappeared.  Then my numbness and tingling faded away to an oblivion.  I though that my dreams had come true and my prayers were finally answered but the benefits didn’t stop there.  My anxiety also faded away and became less influential in my daily experiences.  The most beneficial and rewarding benefit took me and everyone around me by surprise.  The valuable gift emerged and continues to evolve month by month.  So, what is this gift? I bet you want to know.  Well, its libido and the gift of orgazmik yoga.  It is an intense connection with myself mind, body and soul.  It is a benefit that I never expected but definitely appreciate, every day.  This never would have been possible without nutrigenomics, holistic treatments, fitness and nutrition.  My physical stress and inflammation was reduced to a manageable level where holistic treatments, massage and yoga were more effective and sustainable.  My treatments were all more effective (massages, chiropractic care and holistic treatments).  These treatments lasted for longer periods of time with less relapses of pain.  Then I began to learn my body, muscle by muscle, creating a deep emotional and physical connection.  This intense connection can be replicated and duplicated for women that can tap into themselves: mind, body and soul.   If you want to know more about this orgazmik yoga, stay tuned.   Your medical history doesn’t have to be your fate.  Biohacking is the answer.  Nutrigenomics is the tool.  And coaching is the trick that guides you through your health transformation and wellness.  Let me help you pop the bubble of symptoms, disease and illness.  Let’s start your journey together.

Food Sensitivities and Nutrition

Food sensitivities and food allergies are a growing problem. These food sensitivities are impacting the brains of children and adults. Research shows the most common food sensitivities are: gluten, dairy, corn, sugar and artificial sweeteners. These foods are negatively impacting brain health everywhere.

The Center for Celiac Research conducted a study of gluten allergies because they had noticed a critical increase of patients with a variety of symptoms that increased significantly over time. These patients exhibited symptoms of Celiac Disease but testing continued to be negative. These patients continued to return with the same symptoms. Many patients began gluten-free diets and their symptoms improved. They reached the conclusion that though this group of people did not have celiac disease, their symptoms were related to the disease (Fasano 2012).
The researchers discovered that one of the culprits for this phenomenon was related to agricultural changes in wheat. Centuries ago gluten grains did not exist. Wheat, triticale, rye and barley are new grains that have been introduced to our modern diet. Our bodies have not evolved in order to digest them properly. In recent years the protein content in modern wheat has increased significantly and 14% of dry wheat is gluten. This amount of gluten is high. This phenomenon is happening because more gluten gives food desirable characteristics that look appetizing and delicious (Fasano 2012).
There is a significant connection between brain function and gluten. People with gluten sensitivity exhibit symptoms of gas, bloating, pain, constipation and diarrhea. The interesting fact is that the brain could be impacted at a molecular level even with out any digestive symptoms (Perlmutter 2013). Degenerative brain disorders are linked to inflammation and oxidative stress. In recent years, they have discovered the exact triggers of this inflammation. The research shows that high carbohydrate diet and gluten stimulate the inflammatory pathways that reaches the brain (Perlmutter 2013). Gluten sensitivity is caused by elevated levels of antibodies against a protein found in gluten. The protein known as gliadin combined with the antibody anti-gliadin when people eat food containing gluten.  As a result of this reaction, specific genes are turned on. These genes then cause inflammatory chemicals are created called cytokines.  Cytokines directly cause damage and impact brain function. The brain does not like inflammation thus, it responds negatively to cytokines. This phenomenon of turning on genes that negatively impact brain health and function (Perlmutter 2011).  This connection between gluten sensitivity and the brain has been studied for the past decade.
According to Dr. Maios Hadjivassiliou of the United Kingdom, a recognized world authority on gluten sensitivity: “gluten sensitivity can be primarily and at times, exclusively a neurological disease.”  People can manifest gluten sensitivity by having issues with brain function without any gastrointestinal symptoms at all. Dr. Hadjivassiliou indicates that the antibodies that a person has when they are gluten sensitive can be directlyand uniquely toxic to the brain (1996).  Since his original investigations in 1996, there has been an explosion of scientific papers describing this relationship between gluten sensitivity and brain disorders.  Researchers in Israel have noted neurological problems in 51% of children with gluten sensitivity. They also describe a link between gluten sensitivity and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).  As authors in a recent issue of the journal, Pediatrics, stated in their research, “This study suggests that the variability of neurologic disorders that occur in celiac disease is broader than previously reported and includes softer and more common neurologic disorders including chronic headache, developmental delay, hypotonia and learning disorders or ADHD”(Pediatrics 2004).
These research findings pose an interesting problem in a society bombarded by processed foods and gluten filled products.  There is a significant need for education and advocacy throughout the community.  The key to health prevention and wellness is knowledge.  Knowledge gives people to power to make decisions that can improve their health and wellness.   The incidence of health issues, developmental delays, Autism and a multitude of diseases continues to multiply every day.  The most interesting part of this phenomenon for me, is that Maria found it through research and I found it through my own health crisis.  This phenomenon impacted my health from the beginning of my life until my adult autoimmune crisis.  The significance of my food allergies and sensitivities as a child was never really addressed.  I continued to live a life eating foods filled with corn, diary, sugar, gluten and artificial ingredients.   As a child, my symptoms were abdominal pain, constipation, anxiety, fatigue, attention issues and learning disability.  As a teen, my symptoms were migraines, IBS, constipation, abdominal pain, severe cramps, anxiety, brain fog, fatigue and attention issues.  These symptoms multiplied and worsened into adulthood until my eventual autoimmune crisis.  Thus, research and my own experiences, truly show the significant impact a relationship between autoimmune conditions and gluten sensitivity.  The impact of gluten sensitivity on our brains and bodies is significant.  The phenomenon should not be taken lightheartedly, knowledge is power, take action and advocate for your health.  Schedule a Free Consultation to learn how to fight back.

Brain Disorders and Oxidative Stress

My desire to help children has always been my priority throughout my career.  I began helping children as a Special Education teacher and progressed into Nursing.  My curiosity and interest in identifying the causes of brain disorders, developmental delays, autism and seizures in children has been ongoing.  This knowledge and expertise has flourished through my career in the healthcare and educational spheres.  My personal experiences with learning disability, attention problems and chronic health issues made me search for the link between these conditions.  My own healing process has helped me realize the connection between chronic illness and brain disorders is real.  Over the years, I have researched to determine the common factor in all of these conditions.  It took me years of research and personal healing to identify the common factor.  The common factor in all brain disorders, chronic illness and disease is oxidative stress.  Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and our antioxidant defenses.  This causes an accumulation of free radicals in the body that provoke tissue damage which leads to illness and disease.   Everyone has their own genetic differences and weaknesses.  As the damage in the cells continues to progress, the bodies genes are altered causing bad genes to turned on, leading to illness and disease.  In my case, free radicals were related to severe food allergies.  The attack on my body was constant with processed foods and damage my body significantly throughout my childhood and adult life.  My food allergies changed from hives to an internal damage throughout my body that eventually turned into autoimmune disease.  Throughout my childhood and adult life my diet was filled with corn and gluten filled products that wrecked havoc on my digestive tract and body.  This damage impacted my memory, attention, digestion and many more aspects of my health.  Now, that I am through the detox and healing phase, I realize the true impact of free radical damage throughout my life.  I am more energetic, happy, active and healthy than ever before.  My memory, attention, chronic pain, digestion and sleep have improved.  Now, I am sharing my store to help prevent these health issues in children before their adult lives.  My burning desire is to stop the struggle with pain, symptoms and disease by impacting the body with unique nutrients and diet to heal the body naturally.

Now that you understand the true impact of free radicals on the body, let’s talk about brain disorders and oxidative stress.  The research shows that children with epilepsy, autism, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy have high oxidative stress.  Oxidative stress impacts their bodies by impacting brain function, memory, attention and seizures.  These are only a few of the possible symptoms associated with oxidative stress and free radical damage.   Free radicals and oxidative stress continue to increase as we age.  This damage multiplies and builds in children with these conditions increasing their symptoms and health issues as they age.   These children have low antioxidants in their bodies, which makes it impossible for the body to fight the damage and repair itself.   Indirect antioxidants are the only effective way to fight free radical damage and oxidative stress.  These indirect antioxidants are created by the body to protect itself but children with oxidative stress are not producing enough to repair the accumulating damage.  The only way to stimulate the body to produce them is by activating the Nrf2 pathway.  In healthy adults, these indirect antioxidants stop being produced after 20 years of age.  So, if children with disease are already low, damage is multiplying and they are aging, the oxidative stress is growing rapidly.  Let’s make it simple, think of children like a bright light bulb.  They were born full of energy and the light bulb was burning strong.  As they age, symptoms started to arise and the light began to dim.  As the light dims, free radical damage increases and the light progressively dims.   Some children have so much stress that the light dims much faster.  So what does that mean, children and adults with these conditions need nutrient-rich supplements to enhance their bodies defenses.  Nutrients and diet are essential in maintaining the appropriate balance of elements in the body to heal and repair itself.  The key to healing is nutrigenomics – the science of using nutrient-rich supplements to impact genetics.   These unique elements activate bodies ability to heal and detoxify itself naturally. I am here to guide you through the process.  Schedule a Free Consultation to develop a plan for you or your child.

Tribute to Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties Family Friendly Hands

I am very grateful to God for reuniting me with the Mother of one of my Special Education Students again.  I was able to reunite with the mother of Robert Alfonso Murguia Clark. Alfonso is known well and loved by many.  I remember him as my student and the seizures he used to experience in school and the visits to the school nurse.  I also cared for Alfonso during seizure episodes as a bedside nurse many years ago in the Pediatric Emergency Room. I love the passion and compassion Elsa Murguia Clark has shown toward other families in need of assistance with their special needs child.  She is doing a fantastic job educating and helping families obtain resources for their children experiencing medical and educational necessities for their children.   Over my career as a special educator, nurse and nurse educator I have researched and learned the impact of stress and disease on children and adults impacting their health and development.  I started my journey with a yearning to find the causing factor of all these developmental delays and their relationship with medical diagnosis.  I was a child with learning disabilities, attention issues and many chronic health issues.  I grew to become an adult with memory and chronic health issues.  Through, my research I found the common factor in developmental delays, illness and disease to be oxidative stress and inflammation in the body.  I began using a product with 23 Published studies on the benefits of reducing this inflammation and stress in the body naturally.  I can’t claim that this is a cure, treat, mitigate or prevent disease but I can tell you the root cause of disease is oxidative stress. I have seen it benefit a variety of clients with attention disorders, autism, epilepsy, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia to name a few.  I began using the product little yellow pill myself 1 year ago and found a reduction in pain, inflammation and digestive issue. I also found some interesting improvements in memory, focus, attention, depression and anxiety.  This brought me to the realization that I needed to spread the word, so that others can make the decision for themselves and their families. Thank you for the opportunity to share the product that changed my life.  I once again thank Elsa for helping so many families in need to Access services for their children.  She is creating a wonderful support community.

Homenaje de Miami-Dade y Monroe Condados – Family Friendly Hands

Estoy muy agradecido con Dios por reunirme nuevamente con la Madre de uno de mis Estudiantes de Educación Especial. Pude reunirme con la madre de Robert Alfonso Murguia Clark. Alfonso es conocido y querido por muchos. Lo recuerdo como mi alumno y las convulsiones que solía experimentar en la escuela y las visitas a la enfermera de la escuela. También me preocupé por Alfonso durante los episodios de convulsiones como enfermera de cabecera hace muchos años en la sala de emergencias pediátricas. Me encanta la pasión y la compasión que Elsa Murguia Clark ha demostrado hacia otras familias que necesitan ayuda con su hijo con necesidades especiales. Ella está haciendo un trabajo fantástico educando y ayudando a las familias a obtener recursos para que sus hijos experimenten necesidades médicas y educativas para sus hijos. A lo largo de mi carrera como educadora especial, enfermera y educadora de enfermería, he investigado y aprendido el impacto del estrés y la enfermedad en niños y adultos que afectan su salud y desarrollo. Comencé mi viaje con un anhelo de encontrar el factor causante de todos estos retrasos en el desarrollo y su relación con el diagnóstico médico. Yo era un niño con problemas de aprendizaje, problemas de atención y muchos problemas crónicos de salud. Crecí para convertirme en un adulto con problemas de memoria y de salud crónica. A través de mi investigación, encontré que el factor común en los retrasos en el desarrollo, la enfermedad y la enfermedad es el estrés oxidativo y la inflamación en el cuerpo. Comencé a usar un producto con 23 estudios publicados sobre los beneficios de reducir esta inflamación y estrés en el cuerpo de forma natural. He visto que beneficia a una variedad de clientes con trastornos de atención, autismo, epilepsia, diabetes, cáncer, fibromialgia, por nombrar algunos.  No puedo afirmar que esto es una cura, tratar, mitigar o prevenir una enfermedad, pero puedo decirle que la raíz de la enfermedad es el estrés oxidativo.  Empecé a usar el producto una pequeña pastilla amarilla hace 1 año y encontré una reducción en el dolor, la inflamación y el problema digestivo.  También encontré algunas mejoras interesantes en la memoria, el enfoque, la atención, la depresión y la ansiedad. Esto me llevó a darme cuenta de que necesitaba difundir el mensaje para que otros pudieran tomar la decisión por sí mismos y por sus familias.  Gracias por la oportunidad de hablar sobre el producto que me cambio la vida. Una vez más, agradezco a Elsa por ayudar a tantas familias necesitadas a acceder a servicios para sus hijos. Ella está creando una maravillosa comunidad.
