How Samia Gore used Social Media to Build a Wellness Empire

Photo Credit: Samia Gore

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.

Men’s Journal Reports: Treating ED with GAINSWave is Life Changing

Photo Credit: From Original Article

Outside of muscle building and diet, topics about men’s health aren’t always popular to talk about, especially when it comes to the penis (yes, we said penis). It makes sense. Erectile dysfunction is not easy to talk about, and the very term even gets flagged as spam mail in many inboxes because there are so many gimmicks out there that promise a result they cannot deliver (and also undoubtedly because so many men suffer of ED in silence).

Thankfully, we aren’t afraid of the subject, and neither are our friends at GAINSWave, a company that uses the power of sound waves to successfully treat ED. With Thanksgiving almost upon us, we here at Dunn Pellier Media are feeling pretty grateful that Men’s Journal did an article about GAINSWave and their remarkable success in helping to treat ED.

“Mark White, a longtime advocate and entrepreneur in the health, wellness, and alternative therapy space was looking for a better solution for ED than Viagra or testosterone supplements. That’s when he began looking into shockwave therapy, which has been popular in Europe for over a decade to treat everything from muscle pain and tendonitis to cellulite and ED. He started GAINSWave, which made shockwave therapy widely available in the US as a longer term solution for ED. “Viagra and testosterone help, but they don’t reverse the signs of aging in the penis,” Dr. Amy Killen, GAINSWave’s chief medical advisor and Salt Lake City provider, explains to Men’s Journal.”

Read the full article in Men’s Journal to find out how GAINSWave works, and how it is changing the men’s lives – and the health of their marriages!

Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer With These Top 10 Tips From Dr. Steven Quay

October is upon us once again, and we all know what that means: it’s breast cancer awareness month. But don’t just wear pink this month. Go further and guard yourself against this devastating disease.

Renowned breast cancer surgeon Dr. Steven Quay has dedicated his entire career to the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. In his 30 years as a physician and research scientist, he has helped more than 80 million people with breast cancer treatment. How? His pioneering efforts in breast cancer research have led to the invention of 7 FDA-approved pharmaceuticals, 87 U.S. patents, and 130 pending U.S. patents. He is currently focused on preventing the nearly 2 million cases of breast cancer in the USA each year.

Here are 10 tips he recommends:


1. Take care of your liver

Since the liver breaks down estrogen, alcohol consumption, drug use, a fatty liver, liver disease, and any other factor that impairs healthy liver function can spur an estrogen build-up.

2. Eat healthy bacteria

Bacterial imbalance in the gut, and other problems that compromise digestion, interfere with the proper elimination of estrogen from the body via the digestive tract. Try including a daily probiotic to your diet.

3. Boost your fiber intake

Insoluble fiber binds to excess estrogen in the digestive tract, which is then excreted by the body. A fiber supplement can also affect the composition of intestinal bacteria and reduce the build-up and re-absorption of free-floating estrogen.  Good sources include wheat bran, corn bran, rice bran, the skins of fruits and vegetables (apples, pears, berries, tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini and carrots), nuts (especially almonds), seeds (particularly sunflower seeds), soybeans, dried beans, and whole-grain foods.


4. Go organic

Some dairy and meat products may contain hormone additives, so choosing organic dairy and meat may reduce your exposure to excess estrogen.

5. Change up your diet

Consume weak phytoestrogenic foods, which counteract the effects of estrogen, such as pomegranate, flaxseeds, pears, apples, berries, organic non-GMO fermented soy, wheat germ, oats, and barley.
6. Ensure you’re getting your vitamins

The body requires sufficient intake of zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6 and other essential nutrients, not only to support the breakdown and elimination of estrogen, but also to aid the function of enzymes responsible for the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.

7. Be mindful of what you consume

Avoid exposure to xenoestrogens from plastics, cosmetics and the birth control pill. Xenoestrogens mimic the effects of estrogens, and tend to be found in water, soil and food products.

8. Be soy careful

Soy has a relatively high concentration of some types of estrogens, so try to avoid unfermented soy products like tofu and soy milk.

9. Manage your stress
As the body responds to high levels of stress, it “steals” progesterone to manufacture the stress hormone cortisol, often leaving a relative excess of estrogen.

10. Sleep well
Maintaining poor sleep habits cause a reduction in the hormone melatonin, which helps protect against estrogen dominance. Aim for seven to eight hours of sleep per night in a cool, dark room.

Make a Difference in Climate Change: Make Disposable Water Bottles Obsolete with Vapur

What’s that in the ocean? Is it a whale? Is it a dolphin? Is it a plastic water bottle? Nooooo! It’s the ANTI bottle!

Ok, that’s cheesy, but we had to paint the picture for you. With talk of climate change infiltrating the air waves (finally!!!), it’s getting harder and harder as individuals to ignore our role in contributing to the destruction of our planet. No longer is it ok to reason, “Well how is one person such as myself going to be able to make a difference?”

Don’t hide behind your computer screen. We see you! And we see us too! We are just as guilty! Admit it: We can ALL be doing a better job of reducing our carbon footprint.

Plastic water bottles are a great place to start, considering so many of them end up in our oceans (and streets and water ways and, and, and…!), which is why we are thrilled to welcome our newest client here at Dunn Pellier Media, Vapur! Vapur is the ANTI-bottle. Their ANTI bottles are an environmentally friendly alternative to the plastic water bottles currently gunking up our planet. Their mission? To make plastic water bottles obsolete.

It’s a noble mission, but we believe in them and we believe in their cause, if for no other reason than their cause is to literally save the planet on which all of us – you and me included – reside. Vapur ANTI-bottles are made with BPA-free polyethylene & nylon, and are manufactured in any given one of the manufacturing facilities, be it in the USA, Germany, or China. They all come with a 1 year warranty, and should last up to 3-4 years.

As if their company mission wasn’t enough to want to buy one, they have a philanthropic component to them as well. Vapur has created a community-giving program called, Drops of Hope. Partnering with likeminded companies and organizations, Vapur aims to make disposable bottles obsolete and clean water more accessible than ever. Through Drops of Hope, Vapur annually donates thousands of bottles to charitable groups all over the world.

And just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Vapur is launching a special pink version of their ANTI bottle.

There is no time like the present to give yourself – and the planet – the gift of a Vapur bottle.

The Most Potent Food Family to Prevent Breast Cancer

Photo Credit: Medical News Today

Breast cancer. It’s a diagnosis that no one wants to hear. You may have been diagnosed with it yourself. And if not you, you may know someone (or many someones) who have been diagnosed with the disease. About 1 in 8 women in the USA will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. So if you are an American woman reading this right now, knowing what precautions you can take to protect yourself against developing breast cancer should be among your highest priorities.

Thankfully, our client, Dr. Steven C. Quay, has this advice for you: eat your garlic and onions. And eat them on the daily.

Dr. Steven C. Quay is the founder of Seattle-based Atossa Genetics, Inc., dedicated to breast cancer prevention. His contributions to medicine, cancer, and biochemistry have been cited more than 9,300 times, putting him in the top 1% of the world’s scientists. His current passion involves the prevention of the two million yearly breast cancer cases worldwide.

Dr. Quay has read and reviewed over 1000 articles on the impact of food on health, and specifically, breast cancer. He prefers to look at studies done on human cells rather than on mice, because let’s face it – mice and humans are different.

He happily came across a study out of Puerto Rico published in July 2019 that determined a group of foods – the Allium Family  – are very effective in the prevention of breast cancer. What is this group of foods? Garlic. Onions. And all their varieties.

Who knew? Garlic is now not just great for warding away vampires (and make out sessions with your date, haha). Turns out, it’s one of your most powerful tools in the prevention of breast cancer.

Do Nutrition Right with Gauge Girl Training: Get the Diet Plan that is Guaranteed to Work for You!

Photo Credit: Christine Hronec

When it comes to nutrition and diet, this much we know is true: one size does not fit all. So unfortunately, your friend Sally who went on the Keto diet and lost a million pounds might try to get you to go on it. And you might do it, only to find that it doesn’t work for you at all. Or your friend Harry might be a staunch vegan and swear that it will improve your life, so you try that, and end up gaining weight and feeling like crap.

So what is a person to do?

Well, the first step is to stop denying what you know is true. There is no magic pill, no single diet that is perfect for every single person. Unfortunately, we are all just too different for that. There are some blanket rules, of course (eat lots of veggies, stay away from processed foods and oils, stay away from fake ingredients), but honing in on what’s right for you takes a bit more work than eating according to what’s trending. It takes a macro plan tailored specifically to you.

Enter chemical engineer, food scientist, and founder of Gauge Girl Training, Christine Hronec. Christine and her team have been featured in Forbes, Fox, OK!, CBS, The Huffington Post, and even The Knot, and they are the #1 Selling Meal Plans and Custom Meal Plans on the market:

“We create Custom Meal Plans, DIY Meal Plans and Body Type Training Plans. Each of our meal plans come with macros calculated menus, grocery lists, menu notes, whole foods lists, recipes broken down by macros, your macros overview, progress tracking, a meal planning calendar, and much more! Dietary restrictions? No problem!”

Head on over to Gauge Girl Training and take their quiz to get you on the right meal plan today. You have nothing to lose but the weight. Oh, and maybe also the frustration of not feeling good in your body and clothes. There is that too…

Kanye West May be Onto Something: Color Light Therapy

More People are Using Saunas to Rejuvenate the Mind, Body & Soul!

If we gave you a pill and told you that it could alleviate depression, reduce swelling, relieve pain, decrease inflammation, decrease recovery time from injuries and operations, sleep better, regulate your mood, improve mental and physical performance, and promote anti-aging by energizing the skin cells, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, giving skin back its youthful look, would you take it?

Of course you would! Hand me that water!!

But what if you didn’t need to take a pill at all? What if you can get all of those benefits (or rather, the potential for all of those benefits), simply by basking in light?

Well, you can. It’s called Color Light Therapy, and if you’ve ever caught a glimpse of Kanye West’s famous Sunday Service, you would have gotten a first hand view of how this ancient practice is used.

Our newest client, Perspire Sauna studio, is harnessing this ancient medicine and combining it with the power of heat to bring you a full spectrum infrared sauna technology combined with Color Light Therapy, or Chromotherapy, as it is also called. With locations in Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Laguna Niguel, Newport Beach, Atlanta, GA, and soon Austin, TX, you can sign up for a session in this healing sauna and test it out for yourself!

Currently the therapeutic applications of light and color are being researched in major hospitals and research centers worldwide. Results indicate that full-spectrum, ultraviolet, colored, and laser light can have therapeutic value for a range of conditions from chronic pain and depression to immune disorders.

The Science of Color

Every color, each with its own frequency, is a form of vibrational energy.

All organs, cells and atoms exist as energy, and each form has its frequency. Each of our organs and energy centers vibrates and harmonizes with the frequencies of these colors. When various parts of the body deviate from these expected normal vibrations, one can assume that the body is either diseased or at least not functioning properly. The vibratory rates inherent in color (chromotherapy) are such that they balance the diseased energy pattern found in the body

Colors generate electrical impulses and magnetic currents or fields of energy that are prime activators of the biochemical and hormonal processes in the human body.

The Science of Light

Light is responsible for turning on the brain and the body. Light enters the body through the eyes and skin. When even a single photon of light enters the eye, it lights up the entire brain. The release of melatonin is directly related to light. This necessary hormone affects every cell in the body. It turns on each cell’s internal activities, allowing them to harmonize with each other and nature.

Kanye West, inspired by artist James Turrell, is using colored light in his Sunday Service performances for therapeutic reasons. “They pull you into a Zen space, and to reprogram…to be more calm, in the moment to be more stable,” explains West in his latest interview with David Letterman.

So if you’re ready to relax your mind, detox your body, burn calories, increase circulation, relieve pain, enhance your immune system, clear and improve your skin, and start sleeping better, sign up for a session today!

Uplift Your Food, Uplift Your Mood: Improving Mental Health Starts in Your Gut!

Photo Credit: Kara Landau

If we had a nickel for the number of times we’ve heard that our gut is our second brain these days, we’d be rich! What are you doing to nourish that second brain of yours? Some have even argued that our second brain or “gut” is even more in charge than our actual brains when it comes to our mood, and thus our decision making processes. This is a big deal, ladies and gents!

You may already be eating probiotic rich foods to nourish your gut. If that’s you, congrats. But did you know that unless you have prebiotic rich foods before you have probiotic ones, you’re not actually making that much of a difference? That’s because probiotics need prebiotics as their energy source in order to thrive.

Kara Landau, registered NYC based dietician, has taken this research into her own hands. She has created a food company that makes feeding your gut not only convenient, but also utterly delicious. Uplift Food has been featured in such publications as Forbes, The Food Network and Women’s Health, and has recently launched on Amazon. In their own words:

Uplift Food is the world’s first functional food brand to focus exclusively on the Mood Supportive Benefits of PRE-biotic Gut Healthy Foods. We take complex science and translate it into practical solutions to help you feel Uplifted!…At Uplift Food HQ our focus is on helping you, our fellow Uplifter, easily get more beneficial PRE-biotics into your body.

At Uplift Food, their mission is “to make quality mood supportive gut healthy prebiotic foods and information accessible, understandable, and incorporated daily, by all.”

Don’t take our word for it: head on over to their website for a plethora of science and research and get educated on how much better you could be feeling if you focused on nourishing your gut through prebiotic rich foods! And while you’re there, be sure to check out their amazing staple product, the gut happy vanilla powder, which can easily be added to smoothies, pancakes, waffles, muffins and more!
