RejuvenateYou – Functional Health
We are all looking to find our Optimal Health – Happiness, Good Health and Wellbeing – but the fact is that 45% of you reading this page are intolerant to a food causing unwanted inflammation and stress on your body! Rather than finding a quick fix like treating your symptoms with a pill – our approach is holistic in finding the cause of your symptoms and making appropriate changes!
Dis-eases and conditions are caused by inflammation and stress along with what you are eating, putting into and onto your body. All this could be causing long term damage leading to serious long term health side effects which are life threatening! The cool thing is that diet related inflammation in your body can be changed and reduced by changing the foods that you are eating. It is important to understand that most inflammation can start in your gut. Testing for food intolerances is an ideal way of getting to the root of your problem and discomfort – so that you can make good food choices for your Optimal and Wellbeing.

STRESS is a word you hear often these days! It can be through Emotional Stress, Physical Stress, Mental Stress, Nutritional Stress, Electromagnetic Stress. The thing is your body cannot differentiate where stress comes from – but just knows it is under chronic stress and acts accordingly.
Your body’s reaction to stress can be damaging to your health – especially when we live in the fast world of today! Often we live in this stress and sympathetic state for days, weeks, months and even years and our stress hormone – cortisol remains elevated. Back in the pre-historic days we only moved into the sympathetic stress when we were in danger (being chased by a lion or such) – our cortisol – would raise until we were out of danger – when our stress was at a normal state or in a parasympathetic state, our breathing turned to normal.
Again Testing for your adrenal function gives a great indication on how your body is reacting to stress in your life! Be sure to message us to discuss or perhaps order a test kit!

Vitamin D and Cod Liver Oil
Why is Vitamin D Important? Information supplied by Dave Liow (Kaizen Health)
Recent research shows that vitamin D appears to reduce your risk of dying from virtually ANY disease.
Vitamin D deficiency is rampant in the Western world. It’s thought that 85 percent of the American public is deficient in vitamin D and over 95 percent of African American or deeply pigmented individuals (stats from our side of the world to follow). Our indoor lifestyles, sun avoidance, and processed low fat diets have led to these vitamin D deficiencies.
Vitamin D is not just a vitamin, it makes an important hormone (chemical messenger) that influences many of your body’s systems and functions.
Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with the biggest killers in the Western world – cancer and heart disease. Other major health problems such as diabetes, obesity, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and mental illnesses are also associated with vitamin D deficiency.
Your ability to avoid colds and flu is also related to vitamin D. Vitamin D levels in your blood fall to their lowest point during winter due to lack of sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for the body to produce its own antibiotics so a person with a low vitamin D blood level is more vulnerable to contracting colds, influenza, and other respiratory infections. Studies show that children with rickets, a vitamin D-deficient skeletal disorder, suffer from frequent respiratory infections, and children exposed to sunlight are less likely to get a cold. The increased number of deaths that occur in winter, largely from pneumonia and cardiovascular diseases, are most likely due to vitamin D deficiency.
Researchers have calculated that simply increasing levels of vitamin D could prevent diseases that claim nearly 1 million lives throughout the world each year!
