Sugar is 8 Times More Addictive Than Cocaine

Sugar Talk with Dr. Michael Goran and Dr. Bill Cole

Dunn Pellier Media’s PR client, Dr. Michael Goran, Ph.D., and Dr. Emily Ventura’s recent book, SUGARPROOF: The Hidden Dangers of Sugar That Are Putting Your Child’s Health at Risk and What You Can Do. Sugarproof busts myths about types of sugars and sweeteners, which can go by over 200 different names, and encourages families to take on a life-changing 7-Day No Added Sugar Challenge or 28 Day gradual reduction to kick start change and right-size their  intake of the sweet stuff.

Sugarproof: The hidden dangers of sugar

Last week, Dr. Goran teamed up with fellow Dunn Pellier Media Wellness client Dr. Bill Cole. Together they hosted an Instagram Live to dive deeper into a discussion about sugar and its negative effects on the body. We encourage you to listen and learn things about sugar and how it may be negatively impacting your life. Spoiler alert: if you’re eating added sugars beyond whole fruits, you are being impacted. The extent depends on how much you’re consuming. Click here for Instagram Live.

Take Back Your Health Now

Dr Bill Cole takes a look at sugar intake

To summarize a little bit of the discussion, Dr. Bill Cole talked about his 5 step method to help his patients take back their health:

  1. Identify the source of energy depletion (which is often sugar itself)
  2. Regenerate the cell membrane
  3. Restore energy (and remember: the sweet stuff will create energy depletion)
  4. Reduce inflammation
  5. Establish methylation

How Adults Can Reduce Sugar Intake

Dr. Goran discussed the two plans in his book to reduce intake of the sweet stuff.  One is just quitting cold turkey for 7 days and the other which is a gentler 28 days. Research shows that you can get metabolic benefits even after just 7 days of eliminating sugar! For any parent dealing with behavior issues like ADHD, Dr. Goran shares that these kinds of behaviors improve within just a couple of days of eliminating sugar!

How Toddlers Can Reduce Sugar Intake

And for those of you with toddlers, keep reading. Because the effects of the sweet stuff are far worse on a toddler or growing child than on an adult. Why? Because sugar can alter the state of cellular development as a child is developing. During brain development, it can be more detrimental because it can alter the state of cellular development. High levels of fructose can make a stem cell more likely to develop into a fat cell!

Dr. Goran and Dr. Cole discuss the differences between fructose and glucose (and trust us – there is a difference), along with a discussion about fruits versus alternative sweeteners, and more.

If you have children – or if you yourself are suffering from health issues and you know you are consuming too much sugar –  tune in to this important Instagram chat!

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!

 

Get the COVID Facts – From a Doctor On How to Stay Safe This Summer

Grab Your Copy of Dr. Steven Quay’s Survival Guide & Get Peace of Mind

It’s safe to say that times are a little…err…confusing? With stay-at-home orders lifting and businesses are given the OK to re-open (albeit with major restrictions), we are also still being told to continue social distancing, to wear a mask, and stay home as much as we can. Life isn’t going back to normal just yet.

If you’re itching to get out and about but worried about staying healthy, we’ve got a solution for you. Our client, Dr. Steven Quay, has put together a guide called Covid-19 Survival Manual: A Physician’s Guide to Keep You and Your Family Healthy During the Pandemic and Beyond.

To list all of Dr. Steven Quay’s credentials would take much too long, but in summary, Dr. Quay received his M.D., M.A., and Ph.D. from The University of Michigan, was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT with Nobel Laureate H. Gobind Khorana, a resident at the Harvard-Massachusetts General Hospital, and was on the faculty of Stanford University School of Medicine for almost a decade. He has over 300 published contributions to medicine which have been cited over 9,700 times.  Dr. Quay has over 87 patents in 22 fields of medicine and has a clinical trial for a nasal spray to treat Covid-19.

Suffice it to say: he knows what he’s talking about.

For just $4.99, you can download a copy of your guide here, and get information including the following:

  • One 2-minute step you can take every time you come home to kill Coronavirus before it enters your lungs
  • A quick, free home test for COVID-19 that is as good as the FDA-approved nasal swab
  • The one exercise you won’t learn in the gym that can save your life
  • How NOT to die of COVID-19 (Make your lungs younger)
  • What to do if you have early-stage COVID-19 so that you can stay out of the hospital
  • The #1 most effective way to prevent the spread of coronavirus as we reopen society (Hint: it’s the one thing the CDC said was “NOT effective” when coronavirus hit the U.S.)
  • Why a vaccine won’t be the solution, and what YOU can do to protect yourself, now and in the future
  • What to eat and drink (and what to avoid) so you can prevent and beat this coronavirus
  • The best supplements I have found from clinical trial research for immune health during this pandemic
  • The coronavirus’ “Diabolic Trait” and how it helped the virus spread so fast
  • An easy DIY step that takes your face mask from a viral barrier to a virus killer, giving you over 100-times the protection of an untreated mask
  • The one blood test to ask for if you are hospitalized that can keep you off a ventilator
  • Three steps to take to thrive during the next epidemic
  • Learn about gain-of-function research and why we must ban it to prevent future pandemics

As if that wasn’t enough, you can feel even better about downloading the book since the proceeds from book sales will be shared with Team Rubicon, a non-profit organization that serves communities by mobilizing veterans to continue their service, leveraging their skills and experience to help people prepare, respond, and recover from disasters and humanitarian crises.

Let’s get back into the world together, safely, and confidently. Share this with everyone you know so we can get closer to a future that puts Covid-19 behind us!

Kanye West May be Onto Something With Color Light Therapy

More People are Using Saunas to Rejuvenate the Mind, Body & Soul! Kanye West has brought new attention to this ancient phenomenon.

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 Kanye West !!

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?

Kanye West Uses Color Light Therapy In Sunday Services

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 now 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!
