It's Monday and I am ready to GEEK OUT on health and wellness today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As you know my self-assigned mission in life to support men and women in living their divinity in human form in the best way possible through the Akashic Records, Intuitive Coaching, and Wellness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So today, I am going to talk about longevity and living our best most vibrant lives. (Blog post link will be in stories soon).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our telomeres are those little "caps" on the ends of our chromosomes which protect our DNA as they replicate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Long story short, when we are young, our telomeres are nice and long but as we age or subject ourselves to factors such as obesity, oxidative stress, and inflammation they shorten. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because protecting this genetic material is vital for proper cell division so that the genetic blueprint is intact, and every time a cell divides the telomere gets shorter leading to programmed cell death or "senescence", keeping the telomere as long as possible is the key to a more youthful body which leads to a more energized YOU.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are, thankfully many things we can do to lengthen our telomeres including using adaptogens such as astragalus with its telomerase inducing cycloastragenal and astragalosides, reishi mushroom which help produce Vitamin D and, interestingly enough, inhibit telomerase in cancer cells while boosting levels in healthy cells and turmeric with it's anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory benefits.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Spiritual practices such as meditation help us lengthen our telomeres because when we alter our perception we alter the world around us and that includes both our physical and subtle bodies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In my latte this morning @kion coffee, @oneworldcacao cacao butter, @sunpotion Yin Power (with astragalus and reishi mushroom) @theactivehoneyco marri honey and coconut milk.

🦋 “Imagine spending 12 weeks with a group of women, who feel like sisters, in a place that feels safe enough to express yourself fully, to explore the truth of who you are and what you feel. A space in which you are consistently met with compassion and curiosity. A circle of women all showing up powerfully and vulnerably to be witnessed and held in their personal metamorphosis.”⠀ ⠀ www.zoekors.com/holy-sexy-you ⠀ ⠀ TAP BIO LINK. JOIN US!!!

🍅🍅🍅 This is the easiest, lightest most satisfying soup ever. Fresh zucchini soup can be eaten hot or cold. 1 Lg onion 1 Med fennel bulb (white part w/several sprigs of green 12-14 Med to Lg zucchini 4 C of chicken broth 4 T olive oil 1 or 2 T of ghee 4-5 Sprigs of fresh thyme (leaves only) Salt & Pepper 2 T of lemon zest Lemon juice In a large pot, add olive oil, sliced onion, fennel, herbs and seasonings. Saute and let sweat on low heat till veggies soften. Add zucchini slices, chicken broth, lemon zest and juice. When zucchini softens (not mushy) use an immersion blender to blend all contents in the pot. Or, puree in small batches in a food processor or blender. Add back into pot and stir in ghee till melted. Brighten with lemon juice. Serve hot topped with a spoonful of Greek yogurt and sprinkle with chopped scallions or chives. For a nice twist try chopped dill to garnish.

Your choices matter to your genes...make the right ones. Via @plantifulfacts #changeyourgenes #geneticexpression #veganhealth #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #vegandiet

♡ It’s Every Kid Healthy Week ♡ Did you know that there was a gene expression study done that proves that the environment of the uterus significantly affects that child’s genetics, gene expression and ultimately their health later in life? Meaning what we are putting in MATTERS. It’s fascinating & empowering at the same time. There are absolutely some things outside of our control, and at the same time, there are things we can be doing to give our kids their best shot at health. And guys, this applies to you, too, because according to a leading fertility physician, “your sperm is a great barometer for your health”. Nourish to Flourish✨This is why we take our whole food capsules & gummies everyday along with doing our best to live a healthy lifestyle💕

💃🏻🥬🧘🏻‍♀️ How I Morning Routine...⠀ ⠀ #tmac20 Committing to consistency. ⠀ ⠀ Swipe to see: I MADE MY BED!

🚶🏻‍♀️ Thankful for the mindfulness that went into TMAC’s Beginner Program. ⠀ ⠀ Because many MANY programs/trainers forget what beginning was like. ⠀ ⠀ (Ahem, I’m so sore!!!)⠀ ⠀ When I opened up the calendar to see what today had in store, 10k Steps was worthy of a big “Woohoo!” from my sleepy self!⠀ ⠀ Then I hopped out of bed and did a 20 min yoga flow from @adrienelouise to meet my Move First Thing criteria for this #tmac20 Challenge. ⠀ ⠀ Now I shall wander freely in the rain while walking pups & trying to stay warm. ⠀ ⠀ I’m coming for you, 10K! ⠀ ⠀ (ps...can I just use yesterday’s steps??? *see slide 3...)

💪🏻 Day 3 of the #tmac20 Challenge. ⠀ ⠀ Apparently I’ve agreed to Move First Thing Every Morning. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Not sure my cortisol awakening response is going to allow me to be at my *best* first thing, but dammit, imma do this!

Complete health transformation: June 2007 Stats: 38 years old 148# size 10 pants Never exercised or been to an exercise class in her life. Never played a sport or anything athletic, never been on a team. Diet coke and diet Dr Pepper were daily staples. Ate 1 maybe 2 meals a day favorite stop McDonalds favorite meal chicken nuggets and fries. Favorite snacks little debbies. Oh yeah, and pop tarts!! November 2018 Stats: 49 years old, 138# size 4 pants Exercises 5-6 days a week. Eats 3-5 meals a day that are cooked from home with quality ingredients. Striving each day to make wise choices to be the healthiest me on the inside. Losing a brother to cancer and my father to Alzheimer’s made me realize that I could 1. Continue living the way I was and end up in a similar situation. 2. Change my lifestyle so that the genes I’d inherited and were dependent on my lifestyle to express themselves, couldn’t. I opted for #2 and I promised to educate ANYONE who stood around long enough to listen, how they too could change their lives. I don’t want to see another person go through what my father did. I love you all too much. So, I started with me and I’ll continue with you and you and you, until I’ve reached the masses. 😘 #healthcoach #nutritionmatters #foodismedicine #epigenetics #endalzheimers #nutritioncoach #lifestylechanges #changeyourlife #changeyourgenes

Finished our 2 days of a fruit juice fast. Back to all fruit and juices. Prepared for the week with what organic we could find, sadly not much, and did the best we could with the rest. The price difference for organic and treated naval oranges; 30 lbs organic $90 and 53 lbs non-organic seedless $60. However, when you taste and see the difference, there is no comparison. The organic are natural with seeds, have a deep orange color, are ripe and sweet, and have no chemicals. It is worth the extra cost when we can find them. This was the only case I could find at a reasonable price. Other places where out, but charge almost double what I paid for organic. ... How are you all doing on your plant based journey? What is working for you or are you having any struggles? ... #getplantstrong #plantbased #plants #wfpb #drrobertmorse #healnaturally #grandma #drrobertmorsend #consciousawareness #fruit #organic #nonorganic #sweet #sour #frugivore #ripe #unripe #seeds #seedless #healthylifestyle #detox #regeneration #genes #changeyourgenes #healthycells #god #happy #hope #juice

Last week I was at a fantastic conference filled with inspiring, bright, and lively individuals. I love learning and feeding my mind with all things health and wellness and am so grateful that I had the opportunity to be a part of it. There was one speaker in particular who’s message has really stuck with me since then. He said, “poor diet is the leading cause of premature death.” Whoa!! Does that make anyone else jump out of their skin?!? This gets me so fired up because we have all the power to change our health through making conscious choices with what we put into our bodies. That is huge!! We as a culture need to educate ourselves so that we can make better choices and teach our young ones the same. I don’t know about you all, but I definitely want to change my genetic makeup so that I can be there to run around with my children’s children and meet my great grandkids someday. We’re heading into the season of merriment, which is typically abundant with yummy food and libations galore. I am so grateful I have spent most of my adult life finding what works for my body and I am so glad that I get to help people make conscious lifestyle choices to head into this time of year feeling their best and coming around to the new year thriving! I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the one and only Michael Pollan, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Please for the sake of your lives, be conscious of what you put into your mouth. And if you need suggestions, I love this stuff and would be overjoyed to help! DM me or comment below :)

I absolutely love this! Mostly because it's spot on!! 👍🏼Food IS medicine. Food IS information. Food IS fuel. It's the data your body-machine needs to do the work required. Whether that work be overcoming colds and the flu, rebalancing hormones, restoring energy to your body and mind, healing and normalizing gut function, creating and balancing neurotransmitter and brain function.... and last but not least your body actually MAKES IT OWN VITAMINS (when it gets the foods it needs to do so) 😄🍉🍋🍑👌🏼💫🍏🥒. Isn't that amazing!!!! This natural remedy guide is spot on, I hope you can save it for future reference!! 👍🏼🙌🏼🍎🥑 #healthiswealth #foodismedicine #foodisinformation #changeyourgenes #changeyourfood #changeyourlife #healing #guide #remedies #naturalcures #naturalremedies #healthyfood #healthy #nutritionalmedicine #nutrition #nutrients #plantbased #eatmoreplants #eatmoregreens #weightloss #cold #theflu #vaccines #saynotogmo #organic #greens

💰Do me a huge favor? ⠀ It requires some math...⠀ ...did I scare you away? 🙂⠀ Add up the amount of money that came out of your paycheck and went toward health insurance for last year, add your deductible and copays paid out, and divide that by 12 and then by the number of people covered. That's what you actually paid per person per month last year for health insurance. It's a good number to know.⠀ My number is ZERO. I don't have health insurance. ⠀ Most of us just pay it as though we have to, but we do have a choice. ⠀ There is always a choice. ⠀ And for 2019, we in the USA are not required by law to have health insurance or pay a penalty. ⠀ (They're being REALLY quiet about this out there.)⠀ You can opt-OUT instead of in.⠀ You can check out https://knewhealth.com - Link in bio.⠀ Do the math and figure it out, because I'm guessing you can save a lot of money by simply educating yourself on the numbers rather than following along doing what you've always done when there is a better way. Come on, you're smarter than that!⠀ Check it out! ⠀ And if you're brave enough and up for the challenge, put that monthly cost you discovered in the comments here--I'd love to know--but mostly I just want YOU to KNOW.⠀ • ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #letstalkaboutmoney #letstalkabouthealthcare #realtalk #thereisalwaysachoice #drkirstenharrison #rebelhealing #rebelhealthcarellc #arlingtonheightsil #functionalmedicine #holisticmedicine #integrativemedicine #rootcausemedicine #lifestylemedicine #choicesmatter #wearebettertogether #drsorders #changeyourgenes #rootcauseresolution #wearestrongertogether #takecontrolofyourhealth #rebelhealthcare #youvegotthis #ivegotyourback #thereisalwayshope #itswhatrebellionsarebuilton ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ @knew_health @mrjamesmaskell @rachelmoniquemaskell @jeffgladd @instituteforfxmed

💪🏻 Last week I pulled a muscle in my leg.⠀ I’m notorious for pushing too hard and I find it difficult to ease up. Learning how to be gentle and respect the signals my body gives me has proven itself difficult for me & in the past I just gave up and felt guilty and weak and angry at my body for not being 18 anymore. A huge part of this year is about moving past that, changing the voices in my head, and finding what feels good. Feeling better now, so here’s to moving forward and getting in all 3 workouts this week!!! On rest days I will do yoga in the mornings because I really miss that. ⠀ I did get in a lovely walk in the woods last Friday, so watch here for my next post on forest-bathing in the suburbs of Chicago!⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #moveordie #chronicpainwarrior #rebelworkout #rebelhealthcare #rebelhealthcarelife #drkirstenharrison #physicianhealthyself #movementasmedicine #90daychallenge #bettyrocker90daychallenge #90daytransformation #lifestylemedicine #bodyweighttraining #stopdropandbettyrock #yourtimeriscomplete #gettingstrongereveryday #highintensityintervaltraining #changeyourgenes #drsorders #takingcareofme #bettyrocker #rockyourlife #hiitit #yogawithadriene #findwhatfeelsgood #yogaeveryday⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ @thebettyrocker @adrienelouise

This morning’s “coffee with a shot of gratitude”... The study of epigenetics and access to it via podcasts. Did you know that meditation releases a chemical that can reverse the signs of aging my changing genes at a cellular level? So incredible. #epigenetics #antiaging #meditation #changeyourgenes #mindbodyconnection #coach #coachlea #lealehmanwellness #boundlessliving

Antioxidants! Antioxidants! Antioxidants! And Collagen! Collagen! Collagen! Nourishment from within is key to keeping the integrity of your cells. One of the most visible changes associated with the aging process in humans relates to a progressive thinning of the skin. This results from a decline in both collagen and glycosaminoglycans, as well as from changes in their chemical structure and 3-dimentional organization. As we get older, it’s normal for our skin to gradually lose its elasticity and thin out. This is part of the skin’s natural aging process. However, there are a variety of factors that can cause the skin to start aging at an accelerated rate. A big part of this “premature skin aging” is a result of free radical activity in the body. Free radicals are molecules that are produced by environmental exposures like tobacco smoke and radiation, including radiation from the sun and other sources of UV rays, including tanning beds. Free radicals are also produced when your body breaks down food. Antioxidants are naturally occurring substances that may provide protection against the effects of damaging free radicals on the cells in your body, including your skin. O Nutricia collagen capsules contain the antioxidant Vitamin C. This is recommended to be taken at night. Your body heals and repairs during your sleep. So darlings you are fighting the signs of aging with O Nutricia collagen combo✨ I also believe in nutrition which plays a key role in how you age! More on that coming up! #enjoythejourney #havefun #onutriciacollagen #meditaranean #draseemmalhotra #antioxidants #changeyourgenes #omega3 #berries #collagencrush #nutrition #eatbettersa #beyou #lowcarb

💥 Alright. Vacation is over. The #roadtripfoodfreedom was fun, tasty, interesting, and there were lots of FIRSTS for me. And now we get back to “normal.” Back to #foodfreedom enough to eat all the fats, protein, and fiber my body needs & wants. AND! My back is feeling great (yeah I hurt that doing warehouse labor—it was intense & fun while it lasted! I called it “CrossFit Amazon” because it was like CrossFit, only in an Amazon warehouse!) so it’s time to get back to #fwfg: Yoga With Adriene and The Betty Rocker. Ladies, giddy up!

🥗⠀ Raw Beet is my new favorite color.⠀ Crispy beets are a different color altogether. ⠀ Tonight’s dinner was full of color & deliciousness. I love to cook & I love to eat. Sometimes I forget that and when that happens, it generally leads to poor food choices. I’m so happy to have the next 4 days’ meals planned out & ingredients purchased. Also, I anticipate feeling *much* better after a couple days of good, home-cooked, fresh food. ⠀ (Recipe by Leanne Vogel @healthfulpursuit)⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ Do you like to cook?

Disease is not hereditary family eating styles become a habit stop that disease chain change your eating habits to alkaline plant based organic vegan and you change your genes!! The first two weeks are the hardest because you will suffer withdrawal symptoms from all the toxic drugs that had been put into the animals youd been eating and boy will you know about it!! However it takes 5 weeks to start changing your genes go vegan for 6 weeks is my challenge to you feel the health changes then tell me you want to go back to eating meat!! Your hard meat eating belly will go soft when youve stopped all animal products and you will have lots more energy!! #changeyourfoodchangeyourbody #alkalinevegan #plantbasedorganic #gyo #growyourownorganicfood #knowwhatyoueat #vegan #diseasenothereditary #foodpatternsare #changeyourdiet #changeyourgenes #meditation #healthier #6weekchallenge #notopesticides #nogmo #youarewhatyoueat #diseasedanddrugged OR #healthy

Obesity is the result of a combination of multiple and complex factors that act all throughout a person’s life, however, recent evidence suggests that several early-life factors play a big role in the development of childhood obesity. Epigenetics has especially been linked to obesity in recent studies. The first 2 years of a children’s life – first 1,000 days – are considered to be the most critically important in their development. An expanding body of scientific evidence shows that what happens during this period sets the basis for a child’s health throughout the course of their life, concluding that certain maternal influences on the baby’s metabolism occur during the gestational stage.

Food for thought! Just like you, I have seen a lot of suffering because of anxiety and depression. It runs deep in my family, I have several friends that have gone through bouts, and I have had a tinge of anxiety here and there myself. Its not fun. I would never wish it on anyone. We all suffer from time to time, I suppose. But the great thing is that we do have a say in how healthy our guts are! We can actually change our genes by the food we eat! Yes😁 #epigenetics It doesn't mean you have to eat "perfectly" all the time. It just means that you can make the decision to help your friendly gut flora to thrive and maybe not suffer with these debilitating diseases. Another reason I decided to start The Healing Kitchen... We will be chatting about this in our Kombucha Class next week if you would like to join us! Link in bio... Cheers to feeding our guts good stuff♡♡♡ #depression #anxiety #stress #mindful #stressors #serotonin #healyourgut #healyourbrain #probiotics #fermented #realfood #probiotics #kombucha #changeyourgenes #geneexpression #exercise #balance #understandyourbody #thehealingkitchen @findlaykitchen

INTERMITTENT FASTING // I’ve been into intermittent fasting for some time now, recommending it to many of my patients. So I was pleased to hear from Dr Pamela Peeke #girlcrush at @metagenics_anz Congress about the range of benefits from intermittent fasting and the research behind it. What I took away from her talk in particular was for EVERY hour over 12 hours of “non-feeding” or “rejuvenation” (fasting) the health benefits DOUBLE!! Personally, I aim for 14-16 hour “non-feed” (fast) and 8-10 hour feeding/nourishing. So here’s some of what it can do for your body: - Changes the function of cells, genes & hormones - Decreases weight & abdominal fat - Reduces insulin resistance & type 2 diabetes - Reduces oxidative stress & inflammation - Induces cellular regeneration - May be beneficial for CVS health - May help maintain lean muscle mass Pretty damn amazing if you ask me!!!

When you are hungry and your kids gets excited with the idea of preparing something healthy ✌️😋😀😀my daughter helped in preparing, eating and editing 💓 @mistressofhouse2 it’s great if your kids introduce chia pudding in their lives They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.

🥗⠀ The Whole30 community is one of my favorites. And the Whole30 reset is one of my favorite ways to help people become more aware of their relationship with food AND get heaps healthier.

🍵 Matcha Latte. Not gonna lie, it wasn’t my favorite, but I was out of decaf coffee and in need of some antioxidant action. ⠀ One of my superpowers is creating something edible, and usually delicious, from whatever I find around my house. ⠀ This concoction ended up being 1 T matcha, 1 T maca, 1 T avocado oil, 1 t cinnamon, 1 t turmeric powder, and a little fresh-ground black pepper in 12 oz of hot water. Black pepper enhances the bioavailability of the curcumin in turmeric and adds analgesic (pain-killing) properties to the already anti-inflammatory action of this elixir. ⠀ Like I said, it wasn’t my favorite, but it did me well. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #antiinflammatory #curcumin #improvise #creativeeating #analgesic #egcg #matchalatte #greentea #foodasmedicine #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #chronicpain #chronicdisease #drkirstenharrison #functionalmedicine #holisticmedicine #integrativemedicine #rootcausemedicine #lifestylemedicine #choicesmatter #wearebettertogether #drsorders #changeyourgenes #rootcauseresolution #thewhybehindyourwhat #youarenotyourdiagnosis #wearestrongertogether #igotyou #takecontrolofyourhealth #rebelhealthcare

BOOK RECOMMENDATION👌••••••••••••••••••••• •••••••••••••• • Most of us have heard of "neuroplasticity", rewiring the neural networks in our brain after injury or disease. As an occupational therapist I am fortunate to see this incredible ability of our brains to adapt new neural networks to relearn movements, sensation & cognition when working with people after they have had a stroke/brain injury, a nerve injury to the arm & even people experiencing persistent pain. Our ability to retrain our brains is absolutely phenomenal 🌈. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• In this book, Dr. Joe Dispenza, a neuroscientist teaches us how to create the reality we desire by retraining our thoughts, reactions & ultimately our state of being. Got to love a book that provides education & practical tools based on science 🤓🙃.

🥗 #repost @markhymanmd ・・・ You can change your diet and lose weight, but if you exercise and keep your diet the same, you may gain some muscle, improve endurance, and be healthier overall, but you won't shed many pounds. - Consider this: ▸ If you consume one 20-ounce soda, you have to walk 4.5 miles to burn it off. ▸ If you consume 1 supersize fast-food meal, you have to run 4 miles a day for 1 whole week to burn it off. Using exercise to lose weight without changing your diet is asking for failure. • • • #foodasmedicine #movementasmedicine #eatyourveggies #justeatrealfood #eatwell #choicesmatter #functionalmedicine #markhymanmd #rebelhealthcare #drkirstenharrison #holisticmedicine #integrativemedicine #rootcausemedicine #rootcauseresolution #lifestylemedicine #takecontrolofyourhealth #wearestrongertogether #changeyourgenes #drsorders #thewhybehindyourwhat #trustyourself #youarenotyourdiagnosis #youvegotthis #ivegotyourback #itswhatrebellionsarebuilton #healthcare #thereisalwaysachoice #makegoodchoices #moveordie

🧘🏻‍♀️ This year has been a year of huge growth for me, and some people will tell you that I’m fairly courageous in general, but this year has been the scary kind of growth. Much of what others see as courageous in me has not seemed so to me—it’s just what I’ve chosen and it’s been exciting but not MY edge. 2018 is The Year of My Edge. Which have you chosen this year? Growth or Safety? Which will you choose moving forward? Nobody else can tell you which is which, but you *know* in your gut. I hope you choose growth.

🎉 Announcing Detox 360°™️ with Dr. Harrison! (That's meeeee!) I am officially launching my practice, Rebel Healthcare, LLC, in June by running a 4-week detox. The environment we exist in is loaded with toxic crap. It compounds over time in our bodies and depending on your personal "biological soup" and resilience, it eventually results in hormonal imbalance, neurological dysfunction, degenerative disorders, autoimmunity, and just basically feeling terrible even if you aren't assigned an official ICD-10 code (that's a diagnosis, kids...). Detox 360°™️ attacks this from multiple fronts and I'd LOVE to help you FEEL BETTER by getting this rubbish moving out of your system and teaching you some tips on how to live a less-toxic life. I am not only organizing this group of fabulous individuals, but I am also participating with them. I'm super excited about this and am offering discounted registration for the 7 people who join me for the launch.

👩🏻‍⚕️ Do you know about Functional Medicine? I do, but I'm in that space. It's interesting how we have the tendency to think that because *we* know something that *everyone* knows it. It leads us to assume things and we all know what ASS-U-ME ing does. I'll tell you, it frustrates the crap out of me when all I want to do is some simple thing, but the smarties on the subject are like, "STEP ONE: Spread the peanut butter onto the bread," and I'm over here like, "BUT HOW DO I GET THE JAR OPEN???" In the spirit of telling you how to open the jar before I wax poetic on how to spread the peanut butter, I share this link to my personal explanation of, and entry into the world of, Functional Medicine. https://www.drkirstenharrison.com/rebel-blog/functional-medicine-holistic-healthcare LINK IN BIO • • • #functionalmedicine #rebelhealthcare #drkirstenharrison #holisticmedicine #integrativemedicine #rootcausemedicine #rootcauseresolution #lifestylemedicine #choicesmatter #takecontrolofyourhealth #wearestrongertogether #changeyourgenes #drsorders #thewhybehindyourwhat #youarenotyourdiagnosis #youvegotthis #ivegotyourback #thereisalwayshope #itswhatrebellionsarebuilton #autoimmune #autoimmunity #celiacdisease #fibromyalgia #hashimotos #generalizedanxietydisorder #ibd #ibs #instituteforfunctionalmedicine #healthcare #chronicillness • • • @instituteforfxmed @nuhsedu @nuhs_alumni @univwesternstates

📚 Look what I found on hoopla! Here are three things you need to know to make this post applicable to your life: 1- I'm not only a doctor, I am also an entrepreneur. Entrepreneuring and businessy things are not covered very effectively in doctor school so I am in B-School (almost a graduate!) learning modern marketing (and entrepreneuring and businessy things). It's wonderful. I was introduced to Denise Duffield-Thomas through B-School colleagues and she is pretty damn cool. HI B-SCHOOLERS! 2- I love books and I'm not making a lot of money right now to buy my beloved books. Enter hoopla--it's a LIBRARY app for all the devices. It allows me to borrow ebooks and audiobooks (and other things like movies but I don't borrow those things...this is all about the BOOKS!) Google it: "hoopla library app". And have your library card ready! You. Are. Welcome. 3- My version of business is about collaboration and being myself and supporting other small business owners who are crazy enough to think they can change the world. Denise is one of those people. And she's succeeding. Not only at being crazy enough to THINK she can change the world, but at actually changing the world. One "Lucky Bee" at a time. So enjoy! Go check her out. You can get her book "Lucky Bitch" on that hoopla app you just downloaded! • • • @denisedt @marieforleo @hoopladigital • • • #collaborate #entrepreneuring #mfbschool #businessythings #rebelbusiness #deniseduffieldthomas #marieforleo #hoopla #librariesofinstagram #readmore #luckybitch #moneymindset #progressoverperfection #girlbosses #trusttheprocess #drkirstenharrison #functionalmedicine #holisticmedicine #youvegotthis #ivegotyourback #thereisalwayshope #itswhatrebellionsarebuilton #rebelhealthcarelife #rebelhealing #rebelhealthcare #lifestylemedicine #wearebettertogether #drsorders #changeyourgenes #choicesmatter

SLOW DOWN AGING BY TUNING UP METHYLATION Methylation is an essential biochemical process to keep your body and brain in optimal shape. Methylation is needed for balancing your mood, helping on the production of dopamine and serotonine, optimizing your energy, protecting you mitochondria, balancing your hormones, protecting your cardiovascular system and keeping your genes healthy and your telomeres long. All this means that optimal methylation = happy, healthy and vibrant long life. Unfortunately, up to 60% of people have a mutation on the genes that control this process causing a methyl factor deficit. Stress and Toxins also increase the body’s need for methyl factors. The good news is that this problem can be overcome with diet, stress management and personalized supplementation and IV therapy. #telomere #changeyourgenes #onogeniv #longevity #liveyoungerlonger #mthfr

Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos 🌮 These are a new favorite! I had to stop children from eating just the buffalo Cauliflower alone. Some people believe that most disease is inherited, when the reality is that it’s more likely you inherited your families lifestyle. Dr. Lynch (molecular biologist) explains that “your actions do two things. They either support your genes or they dirty them up. Are you eating foods that support your genes and give them vitamins and minerals and amino-acids and healthy fats and healthy proteins? Or are you giving them dead processed food that has no life at all and basically doesn’t even support your genes at all. If your genes are constantly working on cleaning up the messes that you keep giving them, how can they repair you?” He states that from his research, probably 1-7% of cancers are from genetics. You have the power to change your destiny! —————————— Adapted this yummy taco from Pinch of Yum. Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos: INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 3/4 cup plant based milk 1/8 teaspoon each garlic powder, salt, and pepper 2-3 cups Cauliflower florets (I used half a bag of frozen, organic rainbow Cauliflower - no need to thaw) 1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Frank’s brand) Broccoli slaw Whole wheat or corn tortillas Avocado Crema 1 avocado 1/4 coconut yogurt (you could add an extra avocado and omit yogurt) Chopped fresh cilantro 1/4 cup water 1/2 teaspoon salt squeeze of lime INSTRUCTIONS Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 1️⃣Whisk flour, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Dip cauliflower pieces in the batter and let excess drip off. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake on an upper rack for 15-20 minutes until lightly crisped and browned. 2️⃣Gently toss the baked cauliflower in a bowl with the hot sauce. Return to pan. Bake for another 5-10 minutes. 3️⃣Mix all ingredients for avocado crema in a food processor or blender until smooth. 4️⃣Toss slaw with some of the avocado crema until it’s nice and creamy. Assemble taco and we topped with fresh pico de gallo with some added diced mango. Added a side of beans and Spanish rice. #plantbasedtacos #healthydinner #changeyourgenes #plantpower #maddocksdinner
