We are witnessing an alarming surge in chronic diseases. In fact, statistics reveal that 6 in 10 Americans suffer from chronic illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and various other conditions that threatening both the quality and lifespan of the individual and threaten the well-being of communities. We have a disease-management rather than a health promoting health system. This disease management/treatment system is very expensive with half the cost of illness wasted on conditions that could be prevented. Over $4.5 trillion was spent on health care or disease treatment in the U. S. in 2022. Despite the overwhelming and ever escalating costs, we are sicker and suffer from more chronic disease than ever. We are spending an awful lot of resources on an ineffective system and there is a critical need for proactive interventions.
Each of us has to be our own best doctor. Nowhere is the phrase “knowledge is power” more true than in managing your health. When you understand the way your body works, you can assist the process of helping your body function at its best. It requires taking ownership, educating yourself and becoming an advocate for your health based on informed choices.
Want to optimize your health but not sure where to start? The Glow Factor four week reset program is the perfect way to kick start your journey to vibrant health.
Prevention is at the heart of wellness and embraces a proactive approach that optimizes health for a chance at a longer, healthier life.
The Glow Factor reset program is a four week jump start that empowers you with a detailed understanding of your personal risk factors and provides strategies to optimize your health and mitigate those risks. With a team of medial professionals supporting you and weekly coaching sessions to guide you, this program sets the course for a rewarding and sustainable wellness journey.
Wellness is not a static state. Vibrant wellness involves taking good care to your physical self, using your mind constructively, expressing your emotions effectively, being creatively involved with those around you and living with a sense of gratitude.
This four week program is personalized to your specific needs with a focus on cleaning and detoxing your body and environment.
Your body is incredibly and wonderfully designed with an innate ability to detox - your liver detoxes itself and your blood by way of oxidation, reduction, hydrolysis and conjugation. Your kidneys help detoxify by way of filtration and reabsorption. Your lymphatic system drains waste away from your cells, tissues and organs and finally your colon helps transport waste out of your body. Of course, this metabolic detoxification is an ongoing process.
Unfortunately, we are constantly bombarded by toxins in our food, water, air, skincare and household products, medicines and more. We are living in an increasingly toxic society, resulting in an ever-increasing body burden or toxic load of chemicals that affect our health and wellbeing. Medical researches are recognizing more symptoms related to the buildup of toxins, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, chronic fatigue, infertility, allergies, behavioral and mood disorders, headaches and cognitive difficulties.
There may be reasons why your body isn’t efficient at clearing toxins - such as an increased and constant exposure to toxins, poor bowel function, deficiencies in specific nutrients, stress, excessive inflammation and not getting enough physical activity or restorative sleep. During the Glow Factor reset we work with you to recognize hidden toxins in your environment and food, support your detox pathways to flush out toxins and increase your self- healing powers.
In addition we provide nutritional support and strategies to facilitate the pathways involved in the processing and excretion of toxins. Our focus is on a whole food diet and adequate hydration with pure water. Our food plans provide a comprehensive guide to food and nutrition suggestions - what to eat, what to watch for and how to provide the body with the right nutrients to optimize metabolic detoxification, improved elimination, healthy gut function and a lower body burden.
The Glow Factor reset program results in improved symptoms and an increased sense of both mental and physical wellbeing. Specifically, our clients who participate in a personalized reset cleanse and detoxification plan describe improvements in pain and fatigue levels, enhanced cognitive function and mood, better sleep quality and weight loss.
Knowledge is a necessary first step toward initiating change.

This is an ideal marker for glycemic control. The glycomark level indicates blood glucose levels, specifically glucose spikes in the past 2 weeks.
Glucose spikes affect everything from your mood, your sleep, your weight, your skin, immune system and your risk for heart disease. The goal is to minimize your glucose spikes for optimal health and wellbeing.
This blood test measures average blood sugar over the past 2-3 months giving a good idea as to how well blood sugar is controlled in the body.
If your glucose levels are out of balance, you put on weight, your hormones get out of whack, you feel tired, you crave sugar, your skin breaks out and your heart suffers. Managing blood glucose levels is critical of long term health.
A high level of hs-CRP in the blood has been linked to an increased risk of heart attacks. It can also indicate infections from bacteria or viruses, inflammatory bowel disease, disorders of the intestines that include Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, autoimmune disorders, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and vasculitis along with lung diseases, such as asthma.
ApoB is the main protein found in the low-density lipoproteins (LDL). LDL cholesterol is known as "bad" cholesterol because high levels of it can damage your heart and arteries.
This blood test can help you know your risk of heart and blood vessel disease. Healthcare providers are finding that this test is more accurate than a lipid panel test,
Our test measures the levels of vitamin D (total, 25-hydroxy D2 and D3) in the blood.
The main role of vitamin D is to help regulate blood levels of calcium, phosphorus, and (to a lesser extent) magnesium. Vitamin D is vital for the growth and health of bone; without it, bones will be soft, malformed, and unable to repair themselves normally, resulting in diseases called rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Vitamin D has also been shown to influence the growth and differentiation of many other tissues and to help regulate the immune system. These other functions have implicated vitamin D in other disorders, such as autoimmunity and cancer.
Ensuring your D3 levels are optimal is critical for overall health and vitality.
Measurement of nitric oxide levels in a simple saliva test. The test takes 15 seconds to complete and will provide a reading somewhere on the color spectrum provided.
Dubbed the "Miracle Molecule," Nitric Oxide has earned this title owing to its profound influence on a myriad of bodily functions. The recipient of a Nobel Prize underscores its ubiquitous role as a signaling molecule, exerting a significant impact on various systems within the body. One of its pivotal roles lies in regulating blood flow by promoting vasodilation, the widening of blood vessels.
Why does blood flow matter? It serves as the lifeline that delivers oxygen and nutrients, facilitates detoxification, sustains immune health, and ensures the smooth operation of bodily systems. If blood flow is compromised, it paves the way for a multitude of symptoms and chronic conditions. Adequate blood circulation also plays a pivotal role in regulating blood pressure by ensuring a consistent supply of nutrients and oxygen to the heart and other organs, thereby maintaining their optimal function.
In terms of aging, NO has been shown to influence lifespan through various mechanisms. It affects mitochondrial function, oxidative stress, and telomere length – all of which are key factors in the aging process.

Research estimating that nearly 48% of the global population has below-adequate blood levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 supplements can be a safe and convenient option to help you meet your needs, especially if you’re at risk of an insufficiency or deficiency.
Maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D may offer several potential benefits:
-Vitamin D3 is essential for the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus, which are vital for maintaining strong and healthy bones.
-Vitamin D is essential for immune health and disease prevention. In fact, some research suggests vitamin D deficiency could worsen or increase the incidence of certain autoimmune conditions
-Some research suggests that obesity may be associated with low vitamin D levels. It’s also believed that vitamin D could influence body weight by regulating the growth of fat cells
-Vitamin D3 is involved in the production and regulation of neurotransmitters like serotonin which is important for mood regulation
