As I mentioned in my most recent blog post, sodium has many health benefits, such as having a positive effect on the body’s pH level (which we know is extremely important for overall health) and improving our respiratory system. We also learned that sodium is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
In addition, sodium has another important role. In EVERY cell in the human body, there is a sodium-potassium pump. This sodium-potassium pump is responsible for the processing of nutrition inside the cell and for providing the body with energy.
When the body (and the blood) becomes too acidic, the acidity interferes with the effectiveness of the sodium-potassium pump. This happens because the cells in the body try to “take in” some of the acidity to help the body deal with it. To make room, the cells are forced to expel minerals. As a result, sodium and potassium are lost.
Consuming sodium regularly in our diet allows the body to constantly replenish sodium if and when it is lost. Without sodium, the body cannot efficiently process nutrition and provide the body with energy. However, eating a diet rich in sodium (as well as using Himalayan and sea salt) will help the body with these two important tasks.
Cooking With Salt (Sodium Chloride)
Chemically speaking, all salt is Sodium Chloride (NaCl). This includes the commonly used processed salts as well as pure, unrefined salts such as Himalayan and sea salt.
When you cook with salt (sodium chloride), the heat causes the chloride to evaporate. However, the sodium does not evaporate and you are left with pure sodium. When sodium is separated from its natural component (chloride), there is an imbalance in the body. Because the chloride has evaporated, the body now has to supply its own chloride.
If you remember back to my blog post about macro-minerals and trace minerals, you probably remember that chloride is one of the seven macro-minerals. This means the body needs chloride in large quantities. The body cannot afford to supply chloride each time we consume salt, counteracting the imbalance between the sodium and chloride.
What this means is that we should be extremely careful when cooking with salt. It is best to add salt to your food after it has already been cooked. This will prevent the chloride from evaporating.
Natural sodium is vitally important for our health, as it is used in EVERY cell in the human body! Not only that but it is one of our greatest defenses against an acidic body (and all disease LOVES acidity).
But not only do we need to be consuming sodium, we also need to be consuming the right kind of sodium: first and foremost, sodium that comes from our soil and is found in vegetables. Vegetables that are high in sodium include (but not limited to) artichokes, beets and beet greens, celery, sweet potatoes, spinach, turnips and seaweed.
In addition, salt that comes from real salt deposits is extremely beneficial for our health. These include pink Himalayan salt and pure sea salt. It is important to stay away from iodized table salt – this kind of “salt” is processed, chemical induced and bleached and is not really salt at all.
Lastly, we need to remember how to cook with salt (or, more importantly, how to not cook with salt). All forms of salt (yes, even Himalayan and sea salt) are, chemically speaking, Sodium Chloride. When we cook with salt, the chloride evaporates and we are left with sodium. This causes an imbalance in the body and therefore, the body is forced to provide the chloride.
To see whether you are mineral deficient, overly acidic, or to explore other areas of your health, such as digestive, respiratory and circulatory issues, schedule a live blood cell screening TODAY!
“In order to have good health, we must have good blood; for the blood is the current of life."
As I discussed in my most recent blog post, iodized table salt is not a healthy form of sodium/salt. However, there is a healthy choice – organic sodium, which comes from natural food sources (primarily vegetables). As we know, sodium is a mineral, which comes from the soil and is found in natural, organically grown produce.
Below are several great food sources of natural, organic sodium:
Of course, we know that our soil and food supply is extremely depleted of necessary minerals, and therefore, we often need to supplement with minerals and other nutrients. The good news here is that you can purchase a pure, unprocessed and unbleached form of salt to sprinkle on your food.
One of the purest forms of salt you can find is pink Himalayan salt. Pink Himalayan salt comes from salt mines 5,000 feet below the Himalayan Mountain Range. While common table salt is incredibly processed, lacking in minerals, bleached and loaded with chemicals, pink Himalayan salt is believed to be 99% pure!
Himalayan salt is generally pink, but can be white and/or red as well. The unique color of Himalayan salt as well as the color variations is a sign of the large amount of trace minerals and electrolytes found in Himalayan salt. Many Himalayan salt companies claim there are up to 84 different minerals in Himalayan salt – it is known for sure there are at least 60 different trace minerals (minerals that your body needs in small quantities as compared to macro-minerals, which are needed in large quantities) and electrolytes!
In addition to Himalayan salt, there are other natural forms of salt, such as Celtic sea salt. Celtic sea salt comes from Brittany, France, is grayish in color and is also rich in necessary minerals.
So, what are the real benefits of consuming Himalayan or sea salt?
First and foremost, natural Himalayan and sea salt can help to balance the body’s pH level. Because salt is rich in sodium as well as other electrolytes, it has a direct effect on the body’s pH.
As I addressed in a recent blog post (The Connection Between Minerals and pH Balance: http://www.cellharmony.net/blog), life does not exist when the pH of the blood deviates from 7.4. When the body is overly acidic, it will do whatever is necessary to become alkaline. This often means pulling calcium from the bones and other alkaline minerals, including sodium, from the body to compensate for the acidity.
In addition, Himalayan and sea salt are known to be very beneficial for our respiratory system. They loosen up excessive mucus and aid the body in clearing away mucus. These natural salts clear pathogens in the air, such as pollen, and are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
Believe it or not, sodium is one of the minerals that is most important for optimal function of the human body.
But I’m not talking about the kind of sodium your doctors tell you to stay away from – the kind of sodium/salt used in processed and packaged foods, store bought table salt and salt used in restaurants. I’m talking about natural, organic sodium. This kind of sodium is a mineral, which comes from the soil (as well as salt deposits) and is found in natural, organically grown produce.
Before I tell you about the beneficial forms of sodium (and salt), I first want to fill you in on why these store bought, processed salts are detrimental to our health.
It was back in the 1920’s that salt first became “iodized.” This means very simply that food companies began adding the trace mineral iodine to salt. They originally started doing this because there was a very high incidence of iodine deficiency disorders, and especially goiter. Goiter is a condition caused by a malfunctioning thyroid gland and iodine is the primary nutrient or “fuel” used by the thyroid gland.
When iodine was added to salt, there was a huge improvement in the number of disorders caused by an iodine deficiency. The large number of goiter incidences began to drop and iodized salt became the standard!
If iodine is a necessary trace mineral, then why is iodized salt so bad?
Unfortunately, the iodized table salt we buy at the store, use at a restaurant and that comes in processed foods is not a natural form of salt. In the 1920’s, standard cooking salt came from the sea or other natural salt deposits. However, since that time, the manufacturing of salt has changed. Companies have come up with more cost effective ways to harvest salt and no longer depend on getting salt from its natural sources.
Iodized table salt (cooking salt) used today has many synthetic chemicals added to it. These chemicals include manufactured forms of iodine, sodium solo-co-aluminate, fluoride sodium bicarbonate, anti-caking agents, aluminum derivatives and toxic amounts of potassium iodide. In addition, iodized table salt is also bleached to make it white.
When purchasing salt at the store, be sure to stay away from any product that claims to be iodized. If it is iodized, you know it is processed! In addition, stay away from any form of salt that is white. Natural, organic salt found in nature is never a pure white color.
Stay tuned to what I have coming next: the benefits of consuming natural sodium/salt as well as natural sources of these beneficial minerals!
Minerals are vitally important for optimal health in the human body. Therefore, I want to talk to you about the connection between minerals (specifically alkaline minerals) and the pH of the human body. But first, I want to give you a brief explanation of the pH scale in case you are unfamiliar or simply need a little reminder.
pH stands for power of Hydrogen and it measures the hydrogen ion concentration in your body. A pH level of 7.0 is considered neutral while a pH level below 7.0 is acidic and a pH above 7.0 is alkaline. Therefore, the pH scale can help us to understand how either alkaline or acidic our body is.
Not only are our bodies (and our blood) either acidic or alkaline, but the foods we eat are as well! When food is digested and processed in our digestive system, it leaves either an alkaline-forming residue or an acid-forming residue.
In order for life to exist within the human body, the pH of the blood must remain at 7.4! The pH of the blood cannot deviate.
You guessed it; because 7.4 is alkaline this means we must eat a larger quantity of alkaline-forming foods and a smaller quantity of acid-forming foods. Experts believe that 80% of the foods found in nature are alkaline-forming, while the other 20% are acidic-forming. Therefore, we should eat according to this ratio.
So, what happens when we consume too many acid-forming foods and drinks and the pH of our blood is threatened?
When our bodies become too acidic and the pH of our blood is threatened (remember, it cannot deviate from 7.4), the body leaches alkaline minerals from its reserves to compensate for the over-acidity of the body.
These alkaline minerals are: magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium and iron.
For example, when the blood is too acidic and life is threatened, the body comes to the rescue by pulling the mineral calcium from the bones. This ultimately leads to calcium loss and a breakdown of the body’s bones. The same is true for the other four alkaline minerals: the body uses up these minerals to fight against acidity and, therefore, they are not available to be used for their primary purpose.
The five alkaline minerals are vitally important for optimal health for a number of reasons. Each of them can be beneficial in keeping the body more alkaline and four of them (magnesium, potassium, calcium and sodium) are also macro-minerals, meaning they are needed in large quantities in the body.
To learn whether your blood is acid or alkaline, call today to sign up for a live blood cell screening.
Whether or not you are too acidic is just one weakness that can be seen at the cellular level! In addition, I will help you identify other weaknesses and imbalances at the cellular level and we will work together to improve these weaknesses.
You may have heard that taking a multivitamin is a waste of money because the body cannot absorb the vitamins, and therefore, “you are only paying for expensive urine.” As funny as this may sound, there is much truth found in this way of thinking! A multivitamin, or a vitamin in general, cannot be used in the body without minerals.
What this means is that when the body is deficient in minerals, vitamins do not have the tools they need to complete their job, so they become useless. Without minerals, vitamins have no function! The body can use minerals without vitamins, but it cannot use vitamins without minerals.
This is one reason why you may be “paying for expensive urine” if you are taking vitamins. Without the necessary minerals in your body, vitamins are simply flushed out through the kidneys. Again, they have no use!
We know that minerals come from plants, which get minerals from the soil! The extremely unfortunate part is that our soil is becoming more and more depleted of necessary minerals; on average, fruits and vegetables have 12 of the 70 necessary minerals! There are very few supplements I suggest that EVERYONE take; however, a mineral supplement is one of them.
If this information makes you question whether you are mineral deficient, I am pleased to say that a live blood cell screening will reveal such a deficiency. I encourage you to make an appointment to learn about the nutrients your body is starving for at the cellular level and what you can do to replenish these essential nutrients.

Today I want to answer two important questions about minerals: What are minerals? And where do they come from?
What Are Minerals?
Minerals are inorganic compounds that cannot be manufactured by the human body: they must come from food or supplements or both. There are two categories of minerals: macro-minerals and trace minerals.
Macro-minerals are minerals that your body needs in large quantities. Examples of these include: sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and sulfur.
Trace minerals are minerals that your body needs in smaller amounts. Some examples include zinc, manganese, copper, iodine and chromium.
Where Do Minerals Come From?
While the human body is capable of producing some of the nutrients it needs, such as a host of amino acids and Vitamin D, the human body cannot produce minerals. Minerals can only come from plants, which derive their minerals from soil. When our soil is rich in minerals, so is our food. Likewise, when our soil is depleted of minerals, our food supply will be depleted as well.
The problem we face today is found in the depletion of our soil, and thus, the quality of our food supply. In the words of Dr. David S. Dryer: “Our soils are becoming more and more depleted of necessary minerals. Many fruits and vegetables now have less than 12 minerals out of the 70 plus minerals that humans need for proper functioning – and which were present in our foods only one hundred years ago.”
A study titled “Nutrition Under Siege” examined data published by the USDA ARS (Agricultural Research Service) Nutrient Data Laboratory and, upon comparison of the data, concluded “a sharp decline in minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients in many foods since the last comprehensive study published over twenty years ago.” This decline in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients was attributed to “a steady deterioration in soil, air and water quality.”
We need, in proper quantities and proportions, over 70 minerals for peak performance of every cell in the body. Many of us are not getting the minerals we need from our diet, and without a mineral supplement, we tend to be deficient!

I am very excited to share with you one of the most important reasons we absolutely cannot live without water!
Many people are familiar with some of the reasons why water is so important for the human body. However, many are unaware that water acts as the body’s transportation system.
That’s right - Water is the body’s transportation system.
One of water’s primary roles is to transport essential nutrients and oxygen throughout the body to every system and every cell. Healthy cells contain a dense protein membrane. Water is the only substance/fluid capable of carrying nutrients across this dense membrane. Without water, nutrients are incapable of reaching the inside of the cells, and without nutrients, cells begin to die off prematurely.
Electrolytes are one type of nutrient used by the body and located in the interior of the cell. Electrolytes come from minerals and it is water that gives specific minerals an electric charge, creating electrolytes. These electrolytes (capable of producing electricity within the body) are needed to maintain ph, metabolic and hormonal balance.
Equally as important as carrying nutrients to our cells, water is also responsible for carrying waste away from cells.
Even if you are eating a well balanced diet, if you aren’t getting enough water, your body will still be starved for nutrients at the cellular level. This is simply because there is insufficient water to move essential nutrients and oxygen to their proper and necessary location – the inside of your body’s cells.
There are many things you can do to make sure you are getting adequate water each day. One of my favorite tricks for drinking plenty of water is to refill my empty glass or bottle before setting it down. This way it is never empty and I am more likely to keep drinking.

However, there is another equally important reason that Vitamin B12 deficiency is linked to fatigue and can only be understood at the cellular level. Let me explain…
There is a specific cell form that is associated with Vitamin B12 deficiency, known as anisocytosis. Anisocytosis is a condition where a person’s red blood cells are of unequal size; some of the red blood cells are abnormally small and some of the red blood cells are abnormally large.
Our red blood cells are designed to be of perfect size so that when they pass through the capillary beds, they simply “squeeze” through. It is this squeezing effect that allows an exchange of oxygen, nutrients and hormones.
However, when our red blood cells are smaller than normal, this squeezing effect does not occur. Instead, they simply slip through without exchanging oxygen and nutrients, as they should.
When our red blood cells are larger than normal, they have to “fold” to pass through. This folding reduces some of their contact with the capillary wall, and again, hinders the transfer of oxygen.
As you can see, the issue of Vitamin B12 deficiency leading to fatigue is two-fold. First, when a person is deficient in Vitamin B12, their red blood cells are incapable of carrying the proper amount of oxygen due to low levels of hemoglobin.
But the issue doesn’t end there. In addition, their red blood cells may be of unequal size (anisocytosis), hindering the cell’s ability to exchange oxygen in the capillary beds (where the exchange should happen).
Oxygen is needed by every cell in our body to live and function properly. Without oxygen our cells cannot function properly and they can even die prematurely. Therefore, it is the low levels of oxygen in the blood that ultimately lead to fatigue. Low oxygen levels can lead to other health conditions, too, such as dizziness, headache and shortness of breath.
If you (or someone you know) suffer from chronic fatigue, you could be deficient in Vitamin B12. Call today to schedule a live blood cell screening to determine if your blood shows a Vitamin B12 deficiency.
I wanted to tell you some of the benefits of eating chia seeds…
Chia seeds are a superfood rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants fight free radical damage in the body, and therefore, help to prevent premature skin aging as well as support the immune system.
Chia seeds are high in fiber, meaning they promote good digestion through bowel regularity. In addition, it is believed that chia seeds function as a prebiotic food, supporting the growth and development of healthy bacteria within the gastrointestinal tract. (To learn more about the importance of good gut bacteria, read my last blog post!)
Chia seeds are high in minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus. These minerals support strong, healthy bones. Chia seeds are also rich in copper, sulphur, iron, iodine and zinc.
In addition to being rich in minerals, chia seeds are also rich in vitamins, such as Vitamins A, B, D and E.
Chia seeds are extremely high in protein. In fact, they are rated one of the best plant based sources of protein.
Not only do chia seeds have all these health benefits, but also they have been used for thousands of years. Chia seeds were a staple in the diets of ancient Mayans and Aztecs. The word chia actually comes from the Mayan language and means “strength.” Aztec warriors relied on chia seeds to give them strength, increase their energy and boost their stamina. Today, many athletes use chia seeds for these same reasons!
To harness the many health benefits of chia seeds, make chia seeds part of your everyday routine! If you’re unsure how to make them a convenient part of your lifestyle, start with my chia seed pudding:
Chia Seed Pudding:
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (optional)
1 teaspoon raw honey
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Chia seed pudding is delicious on its own, but is also a great option eaten with fruit, such as bananas and blueberries, dried fruit, or soaked nuts. It makes a great breakfast, mid-morning snack, or even lunch. Because of the high amount of protein, fat and fiber, chia seed pudding will fill you up and keep you satisfied for hours!
I hope you enjoy the recipe!
Although these bacteria are throughout the entire human body, some areas of the body are more concentrated with bacteria. One of these areas is the gut, or gastrointestinal tract.
Some experts claim there can be as much as 2 to 3 pounds of bacteria within the gastrointestinal tract. Undoubtedly, these bacteria are a very important part of our gastrointestinal tract, and thus, our digestion and overall health!
As with all of the bacteria in the body, we strive for a healthy ratio of 80% beneficial bacteria and 20% harmful bacteria in the gut. A few of the “bad guys” are actually okay because they help keep the immune system in check and working properly.
What we do not want is for this ratio of beneficial versus harmful bacteria to get out of balance (for example, only 60% beneficial bacteria and as much as 40% harmful bacteria). This imbalance between beneficial and harmful bacteria is known as dysbiosis and is very damaging to our overall health.
There are many symptoms of gut dysbiosis, including but not limited to the following:
Many diseases and conditions are the result of poor gut health and poor digestion.
Hippocrates was a Greek physician who lived more than 1500 years ago and was known as the founding father of modern medicine. Hippocrates understood the importance of good gut health when he said, “all disease begins in the gut.”
If you struggle with digestion or are unsure whether or not dysbiosis is a condition you are living with, I highly recommend having a live blood cell screening. It will reveal indications of gut dysbiosis and other gut related health concerns.
This will allow me to make recommendations specific to your own needs to reverse the negative effects of poor gut health, and likewise, poor digestion.
Call today to make your appointment and let’s get started replenishing the good bacteria and fighting the bad!
Health experts believe that 96-99% of the population suffers from digestive issues.
The body uses five different digestive juices to digest food: saliva, gastric juice, pancreatic juice, bile and intestinal juice. What is important to understand is that different juices are used to digest different foods.
The digestion of starch begins in the mouth with saliva. Saliva changes the starch to maltose in an alkaline condition. The body completes the digestion of starch using the pancreatic juices to turn maltose into glucose.
Proteins are digested very differently than starches. The body uses the gastric juices in the stomach (hydrochloric acid and pepsin) to digest protein. Given that hydrochloric acid is an acid, proteins are digested in an acidic environment.
In order to optimize digestion, it is advised to NOT eat protein and starches together. The alkaline condition that starches are digested in and the acidic condition that proteins are digested in neutralize each other and send foods to the intestines undigested.
Undigested foods in the intestines will begin the process of fermentation, creating a wonderful place for yeast, pathogens and parasites to live and grow.
Vegetables are digested based on the type of nutrients in them. For example, a potato, a starchy vegetable, is digested in the saliva and pancreas like all other starches consumed. Vegetables that are high in protein are digested in the stomach, as with other proteins consumed.
An example of a meal that takes into account the principles of good food combining would be broccoli (a protein vegetable) eaten with a lean piece of meat.
Fruits, because of their high sugar content, are digested very quickly. When they are consumed with other foods, they sit in the stomach too long and begin fermenting very quickly. Therefore, fruits should be eaten alone.
Avocados and tomatoes follow slightly different food combining rules than other vegetables and fruits consumed. Avocados combine well with all foods except proteins and melons. Tomatoes can be eaten with non-starchy vegetables and proteins.
If you’re part of the 96-99% that suffers from digestive issues, I hope you’ll consider following these food-combining guidelines. They’ll help your digestion tremendously!
Also, if you’re part of the 96-99% that suffers from digestive issues, I hope you’ll call today to schedule a live blood cell screening!
As I mentioned, fermentation takes place within the gut and provides a safe place for yeast and other harmful pathogens to live and grow. This condition can be seen in a live blood cell screening!! There are several other indicators within a live sample of blood that help me understand a client’s digestion (and of course, make recommendations for improved digestion)!
Let’s get started today; I have the tools to help you!
In my two most recent blog posts, I’ve talked about two lifestyle factors that can improve blood pressure and general circulation (hydration and exercise), but I wanted to give you one more tip related to good circulation.
When it comes to good circulation, our goal is to get our blood flowing through ALL of our blood vessels, all the way down to our capillaries (those microscopic blood vessels that transfer nutrients, hormones, waste and gases).
When our blood is pumped from the heart, it is moving very quickly. By the time this same blood gets all the way out to our capillaries, it has lost a lot of speed and is moving rather slowly.
It is only because it is moving slowly in the capillary beds that it can transfer nutrients and hormones between these small blood vessels. This exchange of nutrients is why it is so important for blood to be flowing to the capillary beds (and also through them)!
The problem lies in the fact that each of our capillaries is TWO micrometers wide, while our red blood cells are SEVEN micrometers wide.
You’re probably wondering how our red blood cells (and therefore, our blood!) can fit down into our capillaries if the cells are bigger than the capillaries themselves.
The answer is…with water and oil!
This needed oil comes from healthy oils in our diet such as olive oil, flax seed oil, coconut oil and avocado oil, but also from high fat foods such as avocado, coconut, raw nuts and seeds and egg yolks.
If you or someone you know is struggling with high blood pressure or any circulatory condition, I highly recommend working more healthy fats and oils into your diet.
There are several indications in the blood that reveal whether or not a client has enough healthy fats and oils. If you’ve made a New Year’s Resolution to improve your circulation (or to improve your overall health, for that matter!), having a live blood cell screening would be a great place to start.
I would love to help you accomplish all your wellness goals in 2017! Don’t let 2017 get away from you; schedule your live blood cell screening today!
As we discovered in my most recent post, there is a strong link between high blood pressure and dehydration. Similarly, there is a link between exercise and efficient circulation, including improved blood pressure.
Just as drinking an adequate amount of water is recommended for an improvement in blood pressure and other circulatory conditions, so is getting the appropriate amount of exercise, and here is why…
As we read in The Link Between High Blood Pressure and Dehydration, high blood pressure is actually a case of chronic dehydration. When the body is dehydrated, there is a decrease in total fluid volume in the body. When there is a decrease in total fluid volume, there is also a decrease in total blood volume.
The blood vessels contract when there is a decrease in blood volume. This requires excess force to be able to pump blood through the circulatory system.
In a situation of extreme dehydration, where the body is shutting down capillary beds, it determines which capillaries will be open and which capillaries will be closed based on priority. Priority is always given to those organs and glands that keep us alive such as the brain, lungs, liver, and kidneys over muscles, bones and skin.
This priority given to capillary beds can be re-programmed through certain activities, such as exercise. When the muscles are exercised, their capillaries begin to open back up and no longer offer resistance, as they do when they are closed.
When the capillary beds in the muscles, bones and skin open back up, blood will flow more effectively without an increased amount of pressure. Essential nutrients and hormones will be easily transferred from capillary to capillary, providing the body with the fuel it needs.
For this reasoning, exercise is highly recommended for improved circulation and high blood pressure.
If you are struggling with high blood pressure or any circulatory condition, I have the resources you are looking for! Click here to schedule a live blood cell screening and we can begin by exploring your health ailments at the cellular level.
Because water is necessary for almost ALL of the body’s major functions, dehydration is very harmful to the human body. The human body will do whatever is necessary to protect itself from the harmful effects of dehydration.
When a person is experiencing chronic dehydration, the total fluid volume in their body is decreased. Because the total fluid volume in their body is decreased, the total fluid volume in their blood is also decreased.
When the blood volume decreases and there is suddenly extra space in the blood vessels, gases are separated from the blood, creating gas locks.
In response to the decreased blood volume (and to prevent gas locks) the blood vessels contract.
When the blood vessels are contracted (because of a decrease is quantity), only an increase in force, or pressure, will allow the blood to pass through the circulatory system, leading to high blood pressure.
The goal during a live blood cell screening is to identify weaknesses and deficiencies at the cellular level. Through the use of healing foods, supplements, exercise and stress management, we can provide support to these weaknesses in order to improve overall health.
Dehydration is one of the weaknesses I see at the cellular level most often.
Dehydration is a chronic condition in our society today, as well as high blood pressure and other circulatory conditions.
Don’t hesitate any longer! If you are struggling with high blood pressure or any circulatory condition, I have the tools to help you! Click here to schedule a live blood cell screening and we can begin by understanding your health ailments at the cellular level.
Just as there is a link between high blood pressure and dehydration, there is also a link between high blood pressure and exercise. Read my next blog post (coming next week) for more on this topic!
