I think pretty much everyone today is aware that vitamin D is critical for immune (and overall) health. In fact, vitamin D deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of health issues like:

  • Heart attack
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Autoimmune disease

Unfortunately, MANY people today are vitamin D deficient and don’t know it. 

Not to mention the fact that vitamin D supplements are not always enough.

Which is exactly why I invited Cort Christie (CEO and owner of Sperti Sunlamps) to talk all about the benefits of vitamin D and how to safely improve your levels in the comfort of your own home! 

Cort has been in the therapeutic light space for over a decade and has partnered with experts like Dr. Holick (author of the Vitamin D Solution) to create the only FDA-approved at-home sun lamp that has been empirically shown to significantly raise vitamin D levels in only minutes a day!

We have been using it in our home, and LOVING it! (even with my 5 year old son, Maverick!)

There is no more important time to mind your vitamin D status than today, so tune in now to learn all about the importance of vitamin D and what you can do to improve your vitamin D levels now!

 Here are some of the fun facts you’ll learn...

  • Why vitamin D is critical for immune health
  • Why vitamin D supplements are not always enough (and what to do about it!)
  • How to test your vitamin D levels at home
  • The link between vitamin D deficiency and skin issues
  • The common skin product that can interfere with vitamin D production
  • The best resource for information on vitamin D deficiency
  • The level of vitamin D you want to stay above
  • Why so many of us are vitamin D deficient and undiagnosed
  • Who is most at risk for vitamin D deficiency
  • Why light can positively impact your mood (and serotonin levels)
  • The difference between tanning lights and vitamin D lamps
  • How to use a vitamin D lamp with your kids
  • And so much more!

Please share this podcast with everyone you know who would benefit from this important information! And don’t forget to listen to the end to learn about the special deal Cort is offering our audience!

Stay well!

Today people are waking up to the fact that many diseases begin in the gut. 

And while changing the foods we eat, the water we drink and taking supplements can make a world of difference for some people, it’s just not enough for everyone. 

Which is why today I want to share the fascinating work of Dr. Jason Klop regarding a breakthrough gut-healing therapy called Fecal Microbiota Transplant, or FMT. 

(And YES, it does involve what you think it does...)

Now FMT is clearly not for everyone, but recent research and clinical experience has shown it can be INCREDIBLY beneficial for certain populations like…

  • Autism
  • C. Difficile
  • IBS
  • SIBO
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Neurological Conditions such as Parkinson’s

In fact, research out of Arizona State University revealed that those with autism who received FMT experienced an 80% reduction in digestive symptoms and a 40% reduction in autism-related symptoms like hyperactivity, sleep issues and cognition. 

Pretty impressive, right?

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Tune in now to hear more about the incredible benefits of FMT and several other unique gut-healing strategies with Dr. Klop. Here are some of my favorite takeaways...

  • His 3 simple steps for better gut health
  • Why he doesn’t always avoid gluten
  • Why he had to delete his social media accounts
  • The true cause of food sensitivities
  • The #1 assault on our gut health 
  • Why eating 100 different foods a week is an important health strategy
  • Where he believes 100% of SIBO begins
  • Why grass fed dairy can be beneficial 
  • The #1 mistake when it comes to FMT
  • The biggest risk with FMT
  • How to know if you’re a good candidate for FMT
  • Whether FMT help with autoimmune conditions
  • And much more

And don't forget to share this conversation with everyone you think it might benefit!
