Building a solid food foundation first is key. Your body can't always assimilate the nutrients from a supplement since taking single vitamins can take more energy from the body to break it down. You end up with a nutrient deficit instead of adding to your body’s energy reserves.
You’re better off eating foods that contain all the vitamins and minerals in one place, therefore, not robbing your body of it’s precious resources.
Plus, many supplements use low quality vegetable oils and soy to add shelf life and increase production of their product. Supplements also require a proper high quality food foundation to work properly.
In this episode series I talk about this and the value of including Vitamin A rich foods in your diet.
Vitamin A is…
Needed for converting cholesterol to thyroid hormone
Plays a role in the repair of the eyes
Stimulates growth of collagen which improves skin and body structure
Repairs internal organs, bone and teeth
Optimizes function of white blood cells
Needed to absorb calcium - so calcium does not stay outside the cell
Improves immune response - helps with food sensitivities
Sources of Vitamin A: Liver, eggs, milk and cheese

BENEFITS OF A DAILY CARROT SALAD INCLUDE:
Aids the liver in the detoxification process by carrying the toxins away via the carrot fiber
Stimulates the digestion
Increases thyroid hormone conversion
Decreases stress hormones; adrenaline and cortisol, as well as, aldosterone and serotonin
Relieves premenstrual symptoms
Contains an indigestible fiber that's antimicrobial and antibacterial which pull out endotoxins (bad bacteria) in the gut. Making your gut flora a much healthier place.
When you cut your carrot lengthwise (even after you chew it) you get the benefit of it pulling out endotoxin much more effectively and lower in the digestive tract.
The raw carrot is effective at detoxing excess estrogen in the gut and prevent estrogen from getting reabsorbed in the gut, thus creating hormonal balance.
Eat your carrot salad between meals, between breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner.

After receiving a BA in English and American literature in 1984 he spent the next two decades traveling around the world, pausing in unexpected places to work at decidedly odd jobs (e.g., gutting salmon in Alaska, teaching English to prostitutes in Bangkok and self-defense to land-reform activists in Mexico, managing commercial real-estate in New York’s Diamond District, helping Spanish physicians translate and publish their research).

Some take aways:

- What my mom taught me
At just over 5’2” tall, and not having made her first Olympic team until the age of 27, Sheila Taormina seems an unlikely candidate to have competed at four consecutive summer Olympiads in three completely different sports (swimming, triathlon, and modern pentathlon). Her first two attempts to qualify for the Olympics in swimming (1988 and 1992) came up short, during what were considered her “peak” years. Following those years she moved forward with her education, finishing her Master’s degree in Business in 1994, and then began her professional career in the automotive industry that same year, working a full-time salaried position in Detroit.

Today's a topic show where we talk about how your brain integration begins by connecting with your purpose neurologically. How this can be a crucial component to making a change or forming a new habit or belief.
We also talked about how to look at your doctor as a consultant rather than an authority and how sugar can be a therapeutic source of fuel for the brain since your brain runs primarily on glucose. The bottom line is, if your body's not getting glucose from the diet it'll make and take glucose by breaking down the tissues in your body.
