Better Health Begins With Your Cells

Functional Medicine Expert Dr. Bill Cole Explains…

“There has never been a perfectly healthy person that’s full of dysfunctional cells. If you want to be well, you have to fix your cells.” – Dr. Bill Cole

How many times have you just felt…off? Your digestion is off or you’re sluggish or tired and irritable, or you have a nagging stomach ache or migraine that just won’t go away. Or maybe you just don’t have enough energy to get through the day and truly thrive.

Whatever it is, you decide enough is enough. You go to the doctor and they run some tests, but everything comes back “normal.” You’re happy that nothing is “wrong” but you’re simultaneously incredibly frustrated. Because now it feels like you’ve reached a dead end: the tests say you’re fine, but your body is telling you otherwise.

Where do you go from there?

Functional medicine expert Dr. Bill Cole knows the answer, and it has everything to do with your cells. Dr. Cole specializes in cellular health, addressing the root causes of chronic health issues. He is the founder and creator of the Key Cellular Nutrition (KCN) and Cellular Health Accelerator (CHA) programs, and he’s been helping thousands of people reclaim their energy and heal their bodies from the inside out. 

So, what is cell regeneration?

In order to explain it, Dr. Cole uses this analogy: Think about a house. If the foundation of a house is bad, can the structure be good? The answer is obviously no.

Well, the metaphorical human house foundation is our cells, because that’s what we are made of. Every tissue, organ, and gland is made of cells and so every function in our body comes from our cells. In effect, it’s not your heart that is beating. It’s your heart cells that are beating!

In this way, all symptoms and all diseases are caused by cellular dysfunction. What keeps our cells healthy is a healthy cycle of letting the good stuff into our cells and letting the bad stuff out of them (the good stuff = nutrients, for example, and the bad stuff = toxins).

What’s causing bad health today is something called…life! We have stressors that are negatively impacting the health of our cells. Physical (injuries, poor posture, lack of movement, etc.), emotional (anxieties, fears, the stress of life, etc.), and chemical (toxins from food, air, products, water, etc.) stress.

All of these stressors create damage on the cell membrane which creates inflammation. That inflammation creates a barrier which means we can’t get the good stuff in and the bad stuff out of the cells. So what happens? The bad stuff builds up inside our cell.

Makes perfect sense, right?

Thankfully, our body has an amazing capacity to heal. You know this is true if you’ve ever gotten a cut and watched it heal over time. So once you start to deal with the stressors in your life and therefore begin to heal your cells, your body can heal itself.

I know that feels daunting, because how are you supposed to get rid of all of your daily stressors? To be alive is to be stressed!

Don’t fret. If you think of the stressors as a 3 legged stool, that means that you may not be able to get rid of all 3 categories of stressors, but if you can get rid of at least one of those legs (or categories), you can begin to regenerate the cells. Because one cannot sit on a two-legged stool.

SO – the only question left is: do you want to heal your cells?

I’m glad you asked. For more information on how you can do just that, visit https://drbillcole.com/

10 Tips for a Consistently Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep is Your Built-in Life Support System

With Dr. Ron Ehrlich…

This is a function of quantity and quality and you are meant to wake up feeling refreshed. For 90% of the population that means 7-9 hours sleep each night and breathing well while you are asleep.

Prioritize
If you don’t prioritize sleep and take it seriously, it’s unlikely you’ll take the necessary steps to change your habits. Sleep is your built-in life-support system.

Routine
As humans, we naturally love routines, partly because our bodies and minds respond well to them. Going to bed and waking at the same time helps to establish a better routine for a consistently good night’s sleep.

Food and Drink
Don’t eat for two hours before going to bed and avoid eating heavy or spicy foods. Caffeine is a stimulant and counter-productive to a restful sleep. Avoid or limit alcohol. While it may help you to fall asleep more easily, it doesn’t allow for a restful and regenerative sleep.

Light and Electromagnetic Radiation
Exposure to light affects the hormone melatonin, which prepares your body for sleep. That includes blue light from electronic devices. Your bedroom should be dark and you shouldn’t have a digital clock sitting by your bed with a green light. TVs or electronic equipment, especially your mobile phone, which should be at least within two meters of the bed.

Noise
This poses a challenge in our urban environment with noisy neighbors, street noise, or even housemates. The most common and annoying sleep-disturbing noise is a snoring partner, often dismissed or trivialized. It’s serious and can have a profound impact on your health, too.

Sleeping Position
Stomach sleeping is a problem for head, neck, jaw, and lower back muscles as well as affecting your airway. Sleeping on your back may result in your lower jaw and tongue restricting or blocking the airway. Side sleeping is the best.

Temperature
Feeling too hot or too cold affects the quality of your sleep so choose bedding that’s appropriate.

Environmental Toxins
Mold can be a serious issue with one of the first symptoms being fatigue that is not improved by rest. Dust mites are the most common cause of childhood asthma and allergies worldwide and affects adults too. The regular use of a high-efficiency particulate air filter vacuum cleaner and placing the bedding in the sunshine are great ways to control this common problem.

Be Positive
Finish the day by describing or journaling three positive events, no matter how small or insignificant. Don’t try to solve the problems of the world just before going to sleep, and don’t check email or Facebook — these are far too stimulating.

Sex
Sex has a positive effect on sleep. It lowers the stress hormone, cortisol, and increases the ‘hugging’ hormone, oxytocin. Sex is a wonderful release of energy and even counts as exercise! It increases estrogen levels, which can enhance a woman’s REM cycle for a deeper, better night’s sleep. Men’s ability to sleep better after sex is legendary.
