It all started back in 8/28/07 when my health was a complete train wreck. My symptoms included the production of calcium oxalate kidney stones, dry skin patches, weight gain, hormonal imbalances, insulin resistance (pre-diabetic), memory loss, leaky gut syndrome, head aches, joint aches, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Compromised immune system, Dry/red eyes, liver issues, mental confusion, food sensitivities, irritability, hypothyroidism, varicose veins, profuse sweating and much more. Medical Doctors told me there wasn’t much they could do for me and many told me my problems were in my head. Well, after receiving my degree in Alternative Medicine, this is partly true and here is why. By this time, I had experienced several major surgeries and a few severe car crashes (none my fault) and your cells have memories. I was living in a toxic environment now for 13 years, not eating pure (lots of processed foods and meat) and had years of pharmaceutical drugs and radiation exposure due to MRI’s, x-rays and CT scans. At this point, it was a miracle I was alive; after all, I nearly died twice….once from a blood clot after experiencing reconstructive kidney surgery and once from a severe car crash. Can you imagine if you were my body; all the trauma that it had endured; I think you would be angry with me too which explains why I was experiencing poor performance.
I knew there had to be a better way, so after meeting with an award winning compounding Pharmacist is Central Florida and conducting metabolic panel testing, I decided to change the way I lived my life. Metabolic panel testing takes a look at the inside of the body for nutritional deficiencies; determining lack of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The test determines if you have stuck metabolic pathways, neurological pathways, cellular and detoxification impairments and much more. This is how we determined from the inside out that I was a complete train wreck. After taking 9 months of a custom blend of nutrients, I was able to think clearly and start to turn my life and health around. When you fix the brain it’s amazing how much you can think clearer and when you do, you can see the dysfunction that you have been living in. This was the beginning of the best part of the rest of my life!
I have decided going forward that I am going to blog on my personal experience of why I chose to switch from Western living to Holistic living and the positive impact it has had on my life. I am not only an Alternative Medical Practitioner but I walk the talk and I want to show you that chances are, the health problems that you are experiencing I have walked through and with natural measures, I reversed my health. I am now the happiest and healthiest I have been in my entire life. I am 41 years young and most people I meet think I am in my early 30’s. That’s what the choice of natural living can do for you. So, I hope that you will continue to read my blogs, follow me on Twitter and Facebook, as I empower and inspire others to “take control of their health so they too can experience a natural way to a better life.”

Whether you want to add lean muscle or improve your overall wellness whey protein combined with colostrum offers many health benefits. Whey protein is one of the most concentrated sources of essential amino acids available; its unique molecular structure makes it easy for the body to absorb. Whey protein has an excellent source of immune-enhancing compounds but combined with colostrum it makes it even more of a powerful healing agent.
A collection of studies show that some of the healing benefits experienced with the use of a whey colostrum product includes increase of lean muscle mass and endurance, increased buffering capacity of blood that is important for offsetting muscle fatigue which assists with the improvement recovery from hard training, decreased muscle breakdown, improved immune function, decreased risk of respiratory illnesses, can assist with weight loss, increased resistance to disease, assists with balancing blood sugar and enhances mood, improves autoimmune recovery (arthritis, asthma, colitis, cancer, Chron’s disease, diabetes, lupus etc.), assists with the prevention of cardiovascular disease, improves cognitive function, increases glutathione concentrates in relevant tissues, decreases inflammation, detoxifies potential carcinogens, provides protection against infections, increased post-surgical wound healing, promotes cell development, protection against oxidative stress, assists in slowing down the aging process, helps to repair “leaky gut” and creates stronger gut walls resulting in improved digestion, assists with the fight against osteoporosis, it assists in keeping your metabolic rate up and your hunger down. Studies show that there has been no severe adverse reaction linked to the consumption of whey protein products and that individuals with milk allergies find that casein is most often the culprit to their intolerance and therefore they are able to consume whey/colostrum products. But, if you are not sure, we always recommend that you check with your practitioner before altering your diet.
Relative to other protein sources, whey has a high concentration of branch chain amino acids. Luecine is helpful in the growth and repair of muscle tissue (such as bone, skin and muscles); it promotes wound healing and assists with energy regulation. It assists with the prevention of muscle protein breakdown that can occur after trauma or severe stress; it also stimulates insulin release. Valine in conjunction with other amino acids functions in regenerating tissue and is essential for a proper functioning nervous system, muscle development and coordination. Whey proteins are also rich in sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine; which is necessary for normal metabolism and growth. Methionine helps to neutralize toxins, improve strength of tissue, and can assist with the prevention of depression. Cells in the liver and kidneys especially need this amino acid for regeneration. Deficiencies allow fat to be retained in the liver and symptoms may include; hair loss, poor skin tone and toxic waste buildup. Methionine has the ability to increase the body’s level of glutathione, which is very important in assisting with detoxification of the liver.
Dr. Clement’s Pro-Colos product offers a delicious blend of vanilla flavored Whey protein obtained from Hormone Free Cows in New Zealand and fresh Grade “A” U.S. Dairy colostrum. The vanilla flavor is so good that you can mix it alone in water or in our family we add it to our organic berry smoothies in the morning. Either way the benefits that you will gain from whey combined with colostrum are amazing. A recent testimony which you can find on my site”
“I just can’t function properly without my Pro-Colos; I feel like a slug and I work retail and am the only one who hasn’t gotten sick. I really believe it is the Pro-Colos. I also have acid reflux or should I say I used to have acid reflux and I don’t anymore. Pro-Colos is some of the best stuff I’ve ever spent my money on and my funds are limited, but I make sure I have this stuff. Many Thanks” submitted on October 15, 2010 by Brenda from Upstate NY. I personally have been consuming Pro-Colos for about a year and within 30 days my psoriasis all on my right arm and hand completely disappeared. I decided since psoriasis was an autoimmune disorder and that was probably caused by the “leaky gut” that my DO told me I had, I decided to try it on my son who suffered from Celiac’s disease. After 3 months of taking the Pro-Colos he was able to consume dairy, gluten and wheat without suffering any adverse side effects. My daughter also suffered severely from Eczema and after taking the Pro-Colos for several months she no longer has any symptoms. I personally believe that once you heal the gut the rest follows suit since 80% of our immune system is found in our gut. So choose to take control of your health today so you too can live a natural way to a better life.
Where did the name come from? It is attributed to a Japanese surgeon and it’s an autoimmune disease; which is due to chronic inflammation that causes thyroid gland failure. It is activated by certain antibodies that attack the thyroid gland; preventing the cells of the thyroid to convert iodine into thyroid hormones. An enlarged thyroid is a common characteristic; a low number of cases involve iodine deficiency but most are associated with excessive iodine intake.
But, how exactly does this condition develop? Pregnancy or viral illnesses can be related to pituitary or hypothalamus gland dysfunction; oh and let’s not forget genetics. So, what are the symptoms? They can develop slowly but include fatigue, intolerance to cold, fertility, unexplained weight gain, dry skin and hair, hoarse voice, muscles aches or cramping, stiff joints, constipation, memory impairment, decreased concentration and depression.
So, how can it be treated? Most patients take pharmaceutical drugs; synthetic hormones but even then they need to be careful because foods such as soy products, salt substitutes, foods high in iron, nutritional supplements such as calcium, iron, potassium and iodine may interfere with the body’s ability to absorb the drug. However, left untreated, a patient will be exposed to an increased risk for heart disease due to increased levels of LDL; bad cholesterol due to an underactive thyroid which can also lead to sleep apnea. For all you women; please be aware that babies born to women with untreated hypothyroidism can lead to an increased risk of birth defects.
Are there any other measures that can be combined with treatment? According to a study published in Internal Medicine News, “Selenium cuts antibodies in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and lowers the disease activity.” Selenium; a trace mineral is an essential nutrient with antioxidant properties. Food sources include garlic, onions, wheat germ, red grapes, broccoli and egg yolks. The suggested daily intake of selenium is 75mg for men and 55mg for women; the problem is that most people don’t consume even this small amount in the daily diet.
On April 29, 2010, my mother died suddenly of undetected and untreated Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. It is my passion to help people become aware of this disease and encourage them to receive testing. Through Alternative Practitioners’ and Do’s there is an iodine test available to see how you process iodine; I encourage you to take the test. You could actually be found with an iodine deficiency and through the use of Iodoral, doctors are treating the symptoms of hypothyroidism. I encourage each and every one of you to “Take control of your health so you too can experience a natural way to a better life!”
