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!

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!

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.

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!

The Wellness Your Way Festival is Back – An Affordable Music & Wellness Festival For All

Grammy Nominated Singer Jewel’s Festival comes to Denver & Cincinnati…

So, you wanted to go to the Goop wellness festival but couldn’t quite stomach the $500+ price tag for a ticket? We totally get it. The good news is that wellness festivals can actually be accessible to everyone – at any price point. Let’s leave the gooping to the goopers, and instead let’s focus on the crown Jewel (wink wink) of festivals: Wellness Your Way Festival!

Grammy Nominated Singer/songwriter, Jewel (yes, that Jewel) partnered with Kroger and Inclusion Companies to launch the first ever, affordable music and wellness festival last October in Cincinnati. As you can imagine, it was a huge success. But not just because of their star studded line up, including Jewel herself. It was because this festival did something no other festivals appear to be doing: it was made affordable to everyone, no matter their income level. And when it comes to music and wellness, shouldn’t we all have the chance to learn about what makes us healthy and listen to good music? We think so. 

Wellness Your Way Festival is here to stay – they will be back in Cincinnati this October! But they didn’t want to stop at just one city, so they have added another stop: Denver, Colorado in August!

That’s right, Denver fans and citizens, you can attend a celebrity studded, affordable wellness festival in those Colorado rockies for a small fee: $35 for a 3 day VIP pass, $25 for a regular 3 days pass (same deal without the bells and whistles of the VIP stuff), or $10 for a day pass to either day (Friday, Saturday of Sunday).

Got any children under 12? Great. They are FREE!!

You can expect workouts from celebrity trainers like Tony Horton (creator of P90X), The Tone It Up Girls, Denise Austin, cooking demos from famous chefs like The Today Show nutritionist Joy Bauer, main stage events, and a speaker series with influential people – including Jewel, of course! 

There is literally no reason not to go to this festival – you have only your health to gain! Oh, and a whole lot of fun too.

So spread the word: if you live in Denver, get tickets! If you have friends there, tell them about it. And if you just feel like posting about this fantabulous and kind hearted event on your social media channels, please do that too.

Mark Wahlberg invests in Australian gym chain F45… after leaving fans shocked with his insane daily workout starting at 2.30am

Story Credit Daily Mail

He’s known for his unwavering dedication to fitness and last year left fans baffled with the details of his insane daily workouts.

And Mark Wahlberg has now taken his love of exercise to a professional level by investing in the Australian fitness franchise F45 Training. 

The Hollywood superstar, 47, has bought a minority stake in the gym chain with his company, the Mark Wahlberg Investment Group, and FOD Capital.

The deal for F45, which was founded in Sydney in 2012, is valued at roughly $450million, according to Bloomberg. ADVERTISING

‘The founders of F45 have done an incredible job building a global brand and with this partnership we hope to continue disrupting the fitness industry,’ Mark said in a statement.

The strength of F45 is that people of all fitness levels will find motivation and support in an F45 studio.’

F45 refers to the 45 minute high-intensity, circuit training workout class that studio members undertake.

The company has 1,500 studios across 40 countries and is the fastest growing fitness franchise in the world. 

The Other Guys star has other fitness-related investments, including StockX, a startup focused on trainer resales, Aquahydrate, a water brand, and Performance Inspired Nutrition, a workout supplement. 

Mark’s investment comes after he offered a very detailed breakdown of his workout schedule, which begins at 2:30am and ends at 7:30pm.

On the former rapper’s check list were two major workouts that lasted more than an hour, two showers, snacks and meals, a cryo chamber recovery, golf and business meetings, in a routine that has baffled his fans.

It all begins at 2:30am when his alarm goes off. Next it’s a prayer session. Then the action star has breakfast at 3:15 am, his first meal of many throughout the day.

From 3:40am until 5:15am he has a serious workout session that includes weight lifting. 

Mark’s 10million Instagram followers will already know about his early workouts as he often shares videos of his gym sessions under the hashtag #4amclub.

At 5:30am it’a a workout meal and then a shower at 6am, which bizarrely appears to last for 90 minutes.

By 7:30am the Shooter actor is playing golf, which could be considered another workout, but only for 30 minutes as a snack follows at 8am. Next it’s a cryo chamber session.    

The A-list actor shares four children with wife Rhea – Ella-Rae, 15, sons Michael, 12, and Brendan, 10, and another daughter Grace, nine.

Got ED? Get GAINSWave. Don’t be shy: Your Sex Life Depends on it.

Alright, things are about to get serious, people. There is no way to enter this conversation lightly, so let’s just do it head on (can’t help the pun).

ED. Erectile Dysfunction. No man wants to talk about it. And he certainly doesn’t want his partner to talk about it with anyone either. Ok…so…then…what’s the plan? Give up having sex for the rest of one’s life? Get Viagra?

Those are two legit options (though we sincerely hope the first one is a road less traveled).

“Heart disease, high blood pressure and high blood sugar can all cause ED,” Dr. Judson Brandeis tells Bustle. “Finding and treating the cause(s) of your ED can help your overall health and wellbeing.”

Ok, so how about trying something, dare we say – revolutionary? Ok, that word has been overused. But there is no other way to describe GAINSWave, the newest drug and surgery-free ED therapy that works in 20 minutes by using shock waves to regenerate erection quality and sexual performance that is “beyond what Viagra and Cialis could imagine,” according to Men’s Health.

“GAINSWave ® is a safe, comfortable treatment for men to optimize sexual performance and to reverse the effects of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) due to poor blood flow.”
