|If you or anyone you know has ever suffered from MS, diabetes, mental health issues, or ANY autoimmune disease, stop what you’re doing and keep reading. Because what we have to tell you could save yours and the lives of your loved ones. Dr. Terry Wahls was previously a marathoner and mountain climber and found her health getting progressively worse and ended up in a wheelchair due to secondary progressive MS.|
Frustrated with traditional treatment, she decided to take her health into her own hands by using her knowledge of functional medicine, ancestral health principles, and background as a medical researcher to create her own treatment protocol. In a mere nine months, she was back on her bike, riding eighteen miles in one day. The protocol grew into The Wahls™ Diet, a nutrition and lifestyle treatment plan that has been investigated in multiple clinical trials, including one funded by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society(NMSS).
In 2019, the National MS Society provided a million-dollar grant to The University of Iowa’s and Dr. Wahls’s team to study The Wahls™ Diet.
In THE WAHLS PROTOCOL: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles (Avery; Updated and Revised Edition; March 2020), Dr. Wahls shares how those suffering from the autoimmune conditions, as well as chronic diseases like diabetes, and even mental health problems, can have more energy, less pain, more joy and steadily improve health. First published in 2014, the new edition has over 30% new material including the latest scientific findings on fasting, ketosis, neurorehabilitation, and behavior change science. The result can help people be even more successful as they adopt and sustain the recommended diet and lifestyle changes and transform their lives, improving their brain health, quality of life, and overall well being.
2020 revised and expanded edition material includes:
• Updated research from The Wahls Research lab showing meaningful improvement in motor function and energy levels, reduced fatigue, and improved mood and cognition.
• Guidance on how to use ketosis and fasting strategies to boost stem cells naturally.
• New research on the microbiome, and how the protocol impacts the microbiome to improve overall health.
• New recipes.
• Testimonials from people with health issues beyond autoimmune diseases such as obesity, mental health problems, and neurodegenerative diseases.
• Published peer-reviewed clinical trials from the Wahls Research Lab.

Get Higher Absorption From Your Vitamins (and Protect Your Health from Coronavirus)
It’s easy to get lost in the supplement world these days. It seems that every time we listen to a new podcast with a new expert talking about a new scientific discovery, we add yet another vitamin to our already long list. Given the state of our soil and food these days – it’s no wonder we need to get our vitamins through supplementation. But with an industry that isn’t regulated, how are we to know if what we are taking is actually working? In the days of Coronavirus and other superbugs on the horizon, we cannot afford to mess around when it comes to our health.
That’s why we are so proud to welcome our newest client, Tropical Oasis, to the Dunn Pellier Media Family. Voted #1 Vitamin by Best Reviews Vitamin Guide for 2019, this physician-approved, GMP certified vitamin company focuses on an array of liquid vitamins to support you and your health. From women’s and men’s health to kids and pets to joint and bone, to skin and beauty, this company has got you covered.
But why liquid?
- They are easier on the stomach.
Conventional vitamins also contain chemical additives, called binding agents, used to hold pills together. Binding ingredients like dibasic calcium phosphate (DCP) and microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) pass through the body and are discarded during digestion, but otherwise, add no nutritional value.
That means every time you take a standard vitamin, you’re forcing your body to do the digestive heavy lifting that it doesn’t have to. Liquid multivitamins, on the other hand, are free from these kinds of chemical binding agents, making them more similar to the way your body absorbs vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables. It’s the natural sustenance your body craves!
2. They are easier to swallow.
Vitamins are notoriously large and cumbersome, making them harder to get down. And if you have difficulty swallowing pills or suffer from a condition like dry mouth or dysphagia, standard multivitamins may be a non-starter. Liquid multivitamins offer the ideal alternative to bulky pills. Unlike standard tablets, liquid vitamins are designed to be easy on the throat and gentle to swallow—no glass of water required!
3. They yield better absorption than capsules or pills
Did you know that liquids have a 98% absorption rate? If you think about it, when you ingest something, your body begins to create digestive enzymes to break down what you’ve taken in. The denser the food, the more enzymes are required to break the food down into usable pieces for your body, and the longer it takes to absorb. A liquid requires very few digestive enzymes because it is already in liquid form. This is why it has a 98% absorption rate, versus the 39-53% absorption rate as capsules or pills.
You and your family cannot afford sub-quality vitamins at any time, especially during this cold and flu season, and with the Coronavirus running rampant on a global scale. Just to note that the most important vitamins you should be taking RIGHT NOW ARE:
- Vitamin C is one of the biggest immune system boosters of all. In fact, a lack of vitamin C can even make you more prone to getting sick. Foods rich in vitamin C include oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, strawberries, bell peppers, spinach, kale, and broccoli. Daily intake of vitamin C is essential for good health because your body doesn’t produce or store it.
- Vitamin B6 is vital to supporting biochemical reactions in the immune system. Vitamin B6-rich foods include chicken and cold-water fish such as salmon and tuna. Vitamin B6 also is found in green vegetables and in chickpeas, which is the main ingredient in hummus.

Have you ever been out on your run and almost stopped dead in your tracks because you saw some chick wearing the coolest headband? You wanted to ask her where it was from because the pattern was so cool, and you’d never seen it before.

You didn’t ask, but we can tell you: it was probably a Treadband. TreadBands is the ultimate non-slip headband designed for the most serious of athletes whose main goal – aside from CRUSHING it – is to keep sweat and hair out of their face during a workout (can we get an amen?). Influenced by the gripping power of a tire tread, TreadBands’ patented grip strip helps you workout without any distractions.
Stubborn against slips, TreadBands complement any routine and come in the cutest and my stylish of designs. How many designs? Too many to count. Plus, they can do custom ones too.

If yoga has you rolling your eyes, keep reading. If all that chanting has you running for the door, and all the crazy language (aka Sanskrit) makes you want to yell, scream, then you need to know about Bulldog Yoga.
Bulldog Yoga is an online platform that makes yoga accessible and fun. How? It’s yoga without the traditional bells and whistles. It’s yoga for the people who don’t do yoga. You don’t need to be able to turn yourself into a pretzel to do it (but if you can do that, well, that’s a pretty neat party trick. Go you!). It’s a show-up-as-you-are kind of flow set to amazing playlists that will give you all the benefits of yoga but with the feel of a cardio workout class.
But wait! There’s more! For just 3 easy payments of $199, you’ll get…
Just kidding. But there is more. If you’re too busy to workout, Bulldog is for you. If you’re short on cash to workout, Bulldog is for you. If you travel a lot and don’t get a lot of time to workout, Bulldog is for you.
Basically, Bulldog yoga is the most user-friendly, time-friendly, budget-friendly, online yoga platform you’ll find. In their own words:
- This fun, fitness-fueled yoga is all about what you want – not what some “yoga expert” says you should want.
- Improve your fitness and strength, get flexible and, yes, have some fun. Listen to bangin’ playlists (everything from pop to rock to country) and do it for you! Don’t fret about any of the typical yoga/fitness studio “scene.”
Do it at your office (shout out to those productive lunch breaks!). Do it with your children at your feet (shout out to those busy mamas and papas). Do it at night to unwind (but fear not – you don’t have to put down that glass of wine. Take sips in between!). Don’t let lack of time, money, motivation, or accessibility be the reason you don’t get the benefits of yoga.

Weighted blankets have become quite a thing these days, and with good research. There is strong evidence to support the fact that weighted blankets release serotonin, can decrease anxiety, reduce restlessness, thus promoting better sleep.
But for those of your poor souls who dig the weight but run too hot, what are you to do?
Thankfully, the people behind chili (those same lovely people who brought you the temperature-controlled beds), have come up with a solution: a temperature-controlled weighted blanket! Yes, now you can have your cake and eat it too, with the chiliBLANKET!
According to an article on their site:
Your body naturally wakes up when your core temperature rises, which disrupts your natural circadian rhythms. However, the cooling feature of chiliBLANKET provides you with the ability to regulate your core body temperature to encourage deep sleep—and helping people improve their deep sleep is what we’re passionate about.
If you consider yourself to be a “hot sleeper” but would like to benefit from the weight of this blanket, try the chiliBLANKET today!

It’s not every day that you get to be a witness to a miracle, and yet, every day since Dr. Terry Wahl’s reversed the symptoms of her MS using diet and lifestyle choices, she gets to. After Dr. Wahls’, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, essentially cured herself (or at least, put herself into remission), she created the Wahls Protocol, a step by step guide to helping others do the same.
Others like Lisa, a mother and fitness enthusiast who had to quit her job due to the symptoms associated with her MS. Watch her and Dr. Wahls’ on The Doctors last week as Lisa tearfully describes how she reverses her MS using the Wahls protocol, even in the face of her doctors who told her it would never work.
Since the airing of this episode, Dr. Wahls’s latest book, The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Plan & Cookbook, along with her 2014 Book, The Wahls Protocol, has climbed the Amazon charts. Is it any wonder?
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with MS and you’re looking to reverse the symptoms and heal from the disease (not just manage the symptoms), get Dr. Wahls’s books, and visit her website for up to date information.
Dr. Terry Walhs, a Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and clinical professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa, was wheelchair-bound due to her secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. But not just wheelchair bound – she was beholden to her tilt-recline wheelchair. Dr. Walhs used her knowledge of functional medicine to create a protocol for herself. The result?
She rides her bike to work now. Every day. That’s right – no more wheelchair. How? Through key diet and lifestyle changes. No magic pill. No drug trials. Just plain old fashioned diet and lifestyle. You may not believe it, but seeing Dr. Wahls walking without aid today paints quite a contrast from her days in her wheelchair, and seeing is believing.
Dr. Wahls has turned her life’s work into helping complete strangers living with MS do what she did: beat the disease. The Wahls Protocol is a diet and lifestyle program that has helped thousands of people to restore their health from MS. In her best selling books, she gets specific about the treatment and discusses how she identified 31 micronutrients that the mitochondria need to function. These foods provide key nutrients for her “9 Cups Daily” protocol:
3 cups of leafy greens3 cups of sulfur-rich vegetables (i.e cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, garlic, etc.) 3 cups colorful vegetables and fruits.
She’ll be talking all about it on The Doctors this coming Thursday, February 6th, so tune in! In the meantime, you can visit Dr. Wahls’ website to download her free diet cheat sheet to start implementing her advice today.
If you or someone you know suffers from MS, suffer no more. Get on The Wahls Protocol, and beat MS.

Recently, the renowned and incredible life coach, Marie Forleo, posted about saying goodbye not just to 2019, but to an entire decade. Yes, people! Yes! As we enter 2020 in a few weeks, we are not just entering a new year. We are entering a new decade.
As far as New Year’s Resolutions go, it’s all well and good to have them. If that’s you thing, go ahead and make them! But you might also want to consider taking a look back not just over 2019, but also over your 2010 through 2019 to ask yourself some of the following questions:
1. What am I most proud of? Why? To make it easier, you can break this down into the following categories: Career, Home Life, Personal Goals, Health Goals.
2. What were my greatest challenges and how did I face them? Where am I at with them now and what work still needs to be done?
3. What do I want to work on most in 2020? My health? My career? My inner peace? What actionable baby steps can I take to start the process?
4. What wise words have become real for you over the past decade (i.e. even when things fall apart, I’m going to be ok, etc.)?
5. What mistakes did your make over the past decade and what did you learn from them?
For more juicy questions like these ones, and for a 3 part (free!) guide to review your decade before you jump into 2020, visit MarieForleo. We sure will be doing that both for ourselves, and for this business that we are so proud of here at Dunn Pellier Media! We are proud of what we do and how we show up for our clients, and yet we know there is always room for more: more abundance, more pushing the envelope, more seeking new ways and strategies that can make a difference in our clients’ brands.
Wishing you and yours a beautiful close out to 2019, and an amazing start to the next decade!
Cheers to 2020!
In Good Health,
Your friends at Dunn Pellier Media

We are thrilled to report the amazing success of our client and founder of Body Complete RX, Samia Gore, who built her empire by sharing her 80 pound weight loss and plastic surgery journey via social media. Body Complete RX is a plant based nutrition company designed with diversity in mind, namely, that not every approach works for every body.
According to this article about Samia in Essence, “the wellness industry has begun to diversify — but there’s still a long way to go. And while there are many different definitions to the term “wellness,” Samia Gore is redefining the fact that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.”
After the birth of her fourth child, Samia didn’t recognize the body looking back at her in the mirror. She wanted to be proactive and get her body back, so she set out on a quest to drop the 80 pounds she had gained in her fourth pregnancy. Her journey may have started there, but it continued after making a decision to get plastic surgery to give her body that final “push.”
Read more about it in this Essence article.
