Evidenced Based Medical Facts About Nutrients to Promote Your Health, Well Being, and Longevity.

In addition to a clean whole foods diet with lots of superfoods, and clean water we recommend some basic nutritional supplementation. It has been my clinical experience over many years that even if someone consumes a one hundred percent organic foods diet that the majority of people will still show positive kinesiological challenges identifying the need for more minerals. This is called a positive shock absorber test. It basically means that the nutrients necessary to maintain strong ligaments and thus structural stability are not present.

Nutrients that are totally necessary to take daily to prevent disease and promote longevity.

Baseline Daily Nutritional Supplements

1. Multi -vitamin minerals – Usually two per meal – to provide the necessary minerals to maintain strong ligaments and to keep your telomeres long. The day of the one a day is very much outdated as you just physically can’t fit the amount of minerals you need into one pill.

Ones We Like:

Adults-Men and non-menstruating females

  • Multigenics Intensive Care w/o Iron

Menstruating females or male runners putting on a lot of miles.

  • Multigenics Intensive Care with Iron

2. Magn esium – This is called the “stress mineral” –both because it increases your need for it as well as depletes it (ie: Exercise, mental /emotional stress ,sugar, alcohol, most multi vitamins because they are skewed 2:1 calcium to magnesium, prescription drugs, recreational drugs, pollution-like driving a car on a highway)

Ones We Like:

  • Metagenics Magnesium Glycinate
  • Metagenics Magnesium Citrate

These are the classic workhorses. The glycinate is an easier form to absorb.

  • Designs for Health Neuromag

This is a new form that gets into the nervous system greater than other forms and has been proven to improve short and long term memory challenges.

3. Vitamin D – This neurohormone controls over 1,000 genes. Optimal levels are a sweet spot (60–70 ng/ml) in the normal range (30–80) and must be checked with a blood test. Best times for these are late fall and early spring.

Ones We Like:

  • Biotics Research Bio-D Mulsion Forte

This is a sublingual drop with 2,000 IU’s per drop. This makes it very readily absorbed.

Important Nutritional Tools to Use on a Regular Basis

Metagenics/Medical Foods

ULTRA CLEAR PLUS – This meal replacement is 2 scoops in 8oz of water with a handful of your favorite berries. We like the berry flavored one. This medical food provides all of your liver support nutrients to detox you. It raises your energy level to a new height. It’s use on a regular basis provides leverage against the environmental chemical onslaught.

For women with PMS signs and symptoms, it should be taken daily 2 weeks pre-menstrually. The results are nothing short of spectacular.

ULTRA INFLAM X360 – Provides a reduction in your body’s inflammatory process. Use as above.

CURCUMIN – This kills cancer at all of its stages prevents neurodegenerative diseases and is a potent anti-inflammatory. It can be tough to absorb so we recommend the following product:

THORNE-MERIVA – microencapsulation in phosphatidylcholine allows a 300% greater absorption.

You can get it direct by calling Thorne at 800-228-1966 and give them Doctor’s code no. HCP 1000285 . The adult dose is 5 capsules per day to get the 1200 milligrams. We recommend dividing the dose to 3 with one meal and 2 with a subsequent meal.


The Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded in 2009 for the discovery and subsequent work on telomeres. These are caps on the end of our DNA that protect them from damage. Every time a cell divides the telomeres get shorter. Lengthening the telomeres promotes a lessening of systemic inflammation and actually reverses aging.

Dr. DePinto at Harvard took old fat grey rats. He gave them telomerase (the enzyme that lengthens the telomeres) and they got skinny, turned black and lived 2 to 3 times their normal lifespan.

There are a number of nutrients that help produce tolomorase and they are listed below. We know that cardiovascular exercise, multi vitamin minerals, and magnesium all work towards this end. Additionally the following work to get the job done.
