The World’s Healthiest & Only Natural Memory Foam Mattress!

Get a Better Night’s Sleep with an Essentia Mattress…

If you’re reading this right now, then it’s safe to say that you care a lot about health. We know you care about the food you put into your body. That food is probably organic, or at least free of pesticides. We are guessing that your meals are overall healthy (with a few cheat meals that are a bit unhealthy here and there).

We are betting that you have also implemented some kind of meditation practice.  How about that workout regimen? We know you like to be fit because it makes you feel good. Gotta love those endorphins!

Our point is, that you take great care to make sure you do everything you can to lead a healthy life. But maybe you have one thing missing in your wellness equation… your mattress. Does no one ever think to ask if this mattress organic? Is it free of unhealthy chemicals?

That’s right, most people don’t think about the mattress they sleep on every night, nor the pillow! What about your sheets?  Are they organic cotton? Right now, we are asking you to think about your pillow and the mattress you sleep on!  Your nose is in direct contact with the materials in the pillow and the sheets every night. We want you to be sure that those materials are not just safe for you to breathe in, but also healthy, and comfortable!

Meet Essentia, The World Healthiest and Only Natural Memory Foam Mattress


Organic mattresses are comfortable. You’ll never have to trade in comfort for your health. This is exactly why Essentia created their brand of mattresses!   The brand blends health and comfort together so that you can get a good night’s sleep.  Their mattresses are non-toxic, comfortable, and perfect for better performance for your body the next day.

Get Better Sleep Performance Today!

In fact, Essentia wins on these 6 major elements:

1. Temperature Control
Essentia mattresses naturally pull heat away from your body and out of the mattress, allowing you to sleep on average 7 degrees cooler* than your body temperature over an 8-hour time-lapse thus promoting ‘micro-hibernation’.

2. Allergy Friendly
Essentia mattresses are impervious to dust mites and do not contain latex proteins.  According to Dr. Robert G. Hamilton of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, these proteins may trigger allergies. Essentia does not use any wool or fiber batting that may also act as a nesting ground for dust mites. You can rest easy knowing you won’t be exposed to potential allergens on an Essentia mattress.

3. Accelerated Recovery

Essentia mattresses offer ultimate pressure relief.  The mattresses increase blood circulation and eliminate numbness and soreness at night.  How? Essentia’s patented natural memory foam, that’s how. Fall asleep quicker, recover faster, and stay asleep longer on Essentia.

4. Optimized Sleep
Essentia Wholebody Recovery category mattresses feature Essentia’s patented molded technology resulting in a high-density natural memory foam comfort layer that reacts quickly to your natural movements at night.  Therefore, it reduces sleep interruptions and keeps you in crucial REM sleep cycles.

5. Organically Clean
Essentia’s natural and organic components reduce VOC exposure.  This is so your body can spend less time fighting outside elements and more time healing. All Essentia products are manufactured in Essentia’s GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic factory.

6. Proper Posture
Essentia mattresses eliminate negative space to properly support the back for a more comfortable sleep. The natural hevea latex support core featured in all Essentia mattresses ensures proper spinal alignment.

Don’t waste another night on a mattress that isn’t working as hard for you and your health as an Essentia mattress does!

Got Migraines, Skin Issues or Unexplained Health Challenges?

Introducing The 4-Phase Histamine Reset Plan

Do you suffer from inexplicable health challenges, and have normalized them or written them off as just being induced by stress? Do you suffer from migraines, low-grade headaches (enough to be a nuisance), allergies, skin problems like psoriasis and eczema, vertigo, irritability, and more? Lots of people suffer from the symptoms mentioned above and have convinced themselves they have to live with them!  Dr. Becky Campbell knows that she can help you get to the root of your problem to eliminate unnecessary pain and be healthy again – just as she did for herself!

We’d like you to meet Dr. Becky Campbell. Dr. Becky is a board-certified doctor of natural medicine who is a long time client with Dunn Pellier Media.  She is the author of The 30-Day Thyroid Reset Plan, and her second book, The 4-Phase Histamine Reset Plan.

But wait – why should you care about histamines? Well, frankly, because if you’ve been to the doctor, the naturopath, the acupuncturist, (the insert-any-health-practitioner-here) and you still haven’t been able to get to the bottom of what’s ailing you and by the way quietly diminishing your quality of life, Dr. Campbell suspects she might know the issue:

It’s histamines.

You know the word. You have heard it in commercials before and you have seen it in the aisles of the pharmacy when seeking out over-the-counter allergy medications. “Antihistamines” are what you want when you’re trying to tackle your latest round of allergies. But did you know that it goes way beyond that and that consuming problematic foods can also trigger histamines in your body that can lead to symptoms like allergies, migraines, skin issues, vertigo, low blood pressure, profuse sweating, and so much more?!

Dr. Campbell breaks it all down in her latest book, which is available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

She has been featured in publications like Mindbodygreen, Bustle, Popsugar, Women’s World Magazine, and more.  Her goal is to help you regain your quality of life just as she was able to regain hers.

Don’t you want that for yourself as you slide into a New Year in 2021? We certainly do!

For more information, visit Dr. Becky Campbell’s website.

Wishing you your best year of health yet, in 2021. Happy New Year!

 

What You Need to Know About Nitric Oxide

Understanding the Coronavirus: Nobel Prize-Winning Dr. Lou Ignarro’s Take

It’s been 6 ½ months since the world effectively closed down, and the door to the life we knew before COVID-19 was closed. As we look toward a future, one that isn’t free from this or other viruses we have yet to encounter but rather one where we have to learn to live with them, we know this one thing is true: we have work to do. We have work to do in how we as a nation approach new viruses and diseases like this, how we keep everyone safe, how we study and learn how to treat new threats, and so much more.

There have been many bright lights in the midst of the darkness of COVID, and one such light is on our client Dr. Lou J. Ignarro. Dr. Ignarro is a Nobel Prize-Winning and UCLA Distinguished Professor Emeritus, and he has been quite vocal about the importance of Nitric Oxide and proper breathing with regards to combating COVID. In June, he was quoted in Biospace.com when he pointed to a recent study by Ackermann et al. in the New England Journal of Medicine, “Pulmonary Vascular Endothelialitis, Thrombosis, and Angiogenesis for COVID-19.”

Essentially, he said, “this study shows that the coronavirus causes destruction of the capacity of blood vessels in the lungs to produce Nitric Oxide (NO).”

As such, Nitric Oxide may be considered as a possible treatment for COVID-19.

What is nitric oxide?

In Dunn Pellier Media’s client’s own words, “Nitric Oxide, also termed NO, is a gaseous molecule that is produced by our arteries in all organs to regulate cardiovascular function. NO causes the muscle cells (smooth muscle) enveloping arteries to relax, thereby causing vasodilation, or widening of the arteries. This physiological action results in a decrease in blood pressure within the arteries and increased blood flow to all organs through the dilated arteries. In the erectile tissue, the NO released during sexual stimulation causes profound relaxation or dilation of the arteries within the erectile tissue, termed the corpus cavernosum. This results in engorgement with blood and consequently penile erection.”

You can read more of the science behind why nitric oxide might be a good potential treatment for coronavirus here.

But if you want to learn a free way to increase NO right now, here you go:

“One thing I urge everyone to practice during this coronavirus pandemic is to breathe or inhale through your NOSE and exhale through your mouth. The cells and tissues in the nose, but not the mouth, constantly and continuously produce nitric oxide, which is a gas. The physiological significance of this is that nasally-derived NO improves oxygen delivery into the lungs by causing bronchodilation – the relaxation and widening of the bronchi and bronchioles in the lungs. Moreover, when inhaling through the nose, your nasal nitric oxide is inhaled into your lungs, where it stands a chance of meeting up with the virus particles. Inhaling through your mouth will NOT accomplish this. By the same token, exhaling through your nose is highly wasteful in that you would be expelling the NO away from the lungs, where it is needed most.” says Dr. Ignarro in an article on Mark’s Daily Apple earlier this year.

There you have it, a simple technique to help you combat this virus in case you or a loved one should fall prey to it. As for the studies regarding NO as a potential treatment, we promise to keep you updated as the story unfolds.

In the meantime, check out more information about Dunn Pellier Media’s client, NO, and Dr. Lou J. Ignarro here.

Safe Meal Delivery in Trying Times Avoid Grocery Store Lines with Safe Home Meal Delivery With Z.E.N. Foods

Safe Food Prep and Delivered Straight To Your Door
 
Given the current state of affairs, do you find yourself thinking twice before ordering take out or meal delivery? You should, and you’re not alone. With information circulating about how long the virus – and other bacteria – can last on certain surfaces, you’re right to be concerned and to begin questioning your local take out spots and/or meal delivery services. How can you trust that these places are taking extra precautions to ensure you and your family’s safety?

If you’re tired of cooking your own food (or can’t find the ingredients you’re looking for on the bare shelves at the store) and are looking for a safe alternative, consider Z.E.N. Foods. This meal-delivery service has been providing delicious, zero effort nutrition (aka Z.E.N.) meal delivery for their clients for the last ten years, and they take their clients’ health seriously. Even before this outbreak, they adhered to the strictest food preparation safety standards, and now they are complying with all of the CDC’s and other healthcare professionals’ guidance on food safety. And not just the food, but also the containers they come in and the surfaces they are prepared on.

“Z.E.N. Foods has always maintained the strictest standards. Our vendors are local and we grade all of our ingredients for quality, freshness, and sustainability every delivery…Once our food is cooked, it is then blast chilled down to 34° within a 90-minute period. This is to not only prevent any foodborne illnesses but also ensures the freshness of the food. Then everything is plated in a cold room at 34°,” says the founder, Mariana Rossano.

The best part of Z.E.N. Foods (besides them being free of contamination and the possible spread of COVID-19 to you and your family)? It’s price-conscious AND healthy, with dinners starting as low as $9.95/meal! You really can’t go wrong!

Boost Your Immune System and Protect Your Health from Coronavirus!

Get Higher Absorption From Your Vitamins

Protect Your Health from Coronavirus

Photo Courtesy: Tropical Oasis

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?

  1. 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.

Look no further than Tropical Oasis vitamins to safeguard you and your loved ones now and always. For more information, and to check out their vitamin options, visit them online and use our 20% discount code: Health20 at Tropical Oasis.

Stay safe out there, wash your hands, don’t touch your face, and TAKE YOUR VITAMINS!
