πŸŒžπŸ” Kick Off Summer with a Healthier Memorial Day BBQ! 🌭✨

Who's ready for the long weekend? Memorial Day not only honors our heroes but also marks the unofficial start to summer! Many of us will be firing up the grills, but did you know you can enjoy all your summertime favorites while still making smarter dietary choices? πŸŽ‰πŸ₯—

BBQ staples like sauces and condiments can be sneaky sources of added sugars, inflammatory oils, artificial dyes, and preservatives. While it's tough to find perfection in processed and store-bought items, opting for healthier versions or making your own can make a big difference. 🌱✨

Other ways to make better choices at summer BBQs and parties:
πŸ₯— Add more veggies to your grill lineup! Bell peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, and corn on the cob are delicious and nutritious options.

πŸ₯© Choose leaner cuts of meat like chicken breasts, turkey burgers, or fish to reduce saturated fat intake.

πŸ… Skip the sugary store-bought sauces and make your own marinades using fresh herbs, spices, and olive oil.

πŸ‰ Hydrate with water or infused water instead of sugary sodas or cocktails to stay refreshed and avoid unnecessary calories.

πŸ“ Offer a variety of fresh fruit options for dessert, like watermelon slices, berries, or fruit skewers, to satisfy your sweet tooth naturally.

πŸ₯€ Opt for whole grain buns or lettuce wraps instead of refined white buns for your burgers and hot dogs to increase fiber intake.

πŸ₯’ Create a colorful salad with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and a light vinaigrette dressing to add nutrients and freshness to your meal.

Remember, moderation is key! It's perfectly fine to indulge in some holiday treats, but making conscious choices helps reduce your intake of added sugars and unwanted additives. Don’t stress too muchβ€”balance is important. Make informed choices, savor your food, and most importantly, enjoy the time with loved ones! πŸŽ‰πŸ’–

What’s on your grill this Memorial Day weekend? Share your menu below! πŸ‘‡πŸ”₯

Meet one of our patients who came to us with concerns about hypertension (HTN) and intermittent allergic reactions. Through personalized wellness consultations and targeted dietary changes, she's not only free from those allergic reactions but also showing fantastic improvements in key health markers! πŸŽ‰

Here’s a look at her lab improvements:

🌞 Vitamin D: Increased from 25.0 to 61.6, enhancing her bone health and immune function.
🩸Vitamin B12: Boosted from 292 to 669, crucial for nerve health and energy levels.

Yes, you can lower dangerous cholesterol levels naturally without the use of pharmaceutical medications! πŸ‘ Meet one of our dedicated patients who transformed her health without relying solely on pharmaceuticals! Faced with very high cholesterol levels, she took decisive action by revamping her diet and integrating cholesterol-lowering supplements into her daily routine. πŸŽπŸ’Š

In just three months, check out her incredible results:
⬇️ LDL Particles: From 3452 to 2206
⬇️ Triglycerides: From 498 to 229
⬇️ Total Cholesterol: From 348 to 291
⬇️ Small LDL Particles: From >2300 to 1510

This success story highlights the power of dietary and lifestyle changes in managing health:
πŸ₯¦ Switching to a heart-healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins can drastically reduce cholesterol levels.
πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈ Increasing physical activity helps boost high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol, which in turn helps lower the "bad" cholesterol.
😌 Reducing stress and improving sleep can also have a significant effect on your body's ability to regulate cholesterol efficiently.

At Well-Rooted Functional Medicine, we empower our patients to take control of their health naturally and sustainably. 🌱

Quick fix medications might seem appealing, but they don’t tackle the underlying issues. By addressing the root causes of high cholesterol through comprehensive lifestyle changes, our patients not only improve their numbers but enhance their overall well-being. 🌟

πŸ” Don't settle for quick fixes – let's get to the root of your health concerns together! πŸ’ͺ Reach out to us today to schedule your consultation and embark on a journey toward lasting vitality! πŸ’š

🌞 Our Revitalize & Recharge Spring IV blend is formulated specifically to give your body the boost it needs right now!πŸŠπŸ’§Hydration fluids with B Complex, Vitamin B5, B12 & Vitamin C.

Many people enjoy IV therapy as a way of getting the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and even medications they need to feel better and keep their body functioning properly.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
πŸ’ŠπŸ©ΈWith a vitamin infusion, your body receives nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system, which would otherwise lower the amount of vitamins your body can absorb. With drip hydration, nutrients are instantly available, so your body can absorb 100% of what it needs before passing along the rest to your kidneys to be flushed out.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ With so many kinds of vitamins and supplements available, IV therapy can deliver a range of health and wellness benefits, including but not limited to:​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹πŸ”Ή Promoting faster weight loss​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
πŸ”Ή Curing hangover symptoms​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
πŸ”Ή Treating certain nutrient deficiencies​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
πŸ”Ή Cleansing your body of toxins and free radicals​​​​​​​​​​​​​
β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹πŸ”Ή Increasing your energy levels​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹πŸ”Ή Easing anxiety and promoting relaxation​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Not all IV treatments are created equal! ☝️ Our cocktails are never pre-mixed. They are made in-house no more than 60 minutes from time of treatment - it's our rule!​​​​​​​​

πŸ’§ Most places don't focus on IV therapy through functional medicine - we do! Our IV Therapy is more than just a spa service.
​​​​​​​​
You don't know what other additives may be in other pre-mixes. And many are stored in plastic until ready to use which can lead to chemicals leaching into the fluid. πŸ€’β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹

This is where we come in... Have you ever been told your lab results look "normal" but you still feel off? At Well-Rooted Functional Medicine, we understand that "normal" isn't always optimal. 🌟

Consider the experience of one of our patients who came to us feeling constantly fatigued. Despite previous lab tests indicating "normal" thyroid levels, she knew something wasn't right. Persistent and determined, she sought a second opinion from our team. πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

Upon a thorough review, we discovered not only anemia and depleted iron storesβ€”which were significant contributors to her fatigueβ€”but also an autoimmune thyroid condition. Her TSH levels were within the typical reference range, yet they were not optimal for her. These findings were crucial in explaining her symptoms and guiding our personalized treatment plan. πŸ’‘

πŸ” At Well-Rooted, we dive deeper:
🀝 Personalized Assessment: We look beyond standard ranges to find what's truly optimal for YOU.
🌱 Root Cause Analysis: We keep digging to uncover the underlying causes of your symptoms, not just treat them superficially.
πŸ“‹ Customized Care Plans: Tailored to address your specific needs and improve your quality of life.

πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ Feeling dismissed or overlooked by conventional approaches can be frustrating. If you’re experiencing symptoms but your lab results are "normal," it might be time to look deeper. Our team at Well-Rooted is here to explore the full picture of your health and guide you towards real solutions.

Don’t settle for feeling just "okay." Reach out to us and let's find your path to feeling great!

It's time for an oil change! βŒπŸ›’ If you're trying to make better food choices, start with simple swaps and ditch refined seed oils first!

One ingredient found in nearly everything pre-made, packaged, or processed is seed oils. It can be frustrating when shopping to try to find products without them!

❌ One of the best things you can do for your health is avoid pre-made, packaged, or processed foods and inflammatory oils by cooking at home with quality ingredients.

🌽🌾 Our hunter-gatherer ancestors were not eating the amount of omega-6 oils (corn, sunflower, soybean, etc) that we are in modern day.
The ancestral ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 consumption was about 1:1.
Today, our current consumption ranges from an average of 10:1 to 20:1, with a ratio as high as 25:1 in some individuals.

This reveals that our average intake of n-6 fatty acids is between 10 and 25 times higher than evolutionary norms. 😟

πŸ”Ž Research indicates that both ancient and modern hunter-gatherers were free of the modern inflammatory diseases, like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, that are the primary causes of death and morbidity today.

In simple terms, there must be a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 in the body. βš–οΈ Since we are typically consuming far more omega-6 fat today than omega-3 this creates a very inflammatory environment and goes a long way towards explaining why 4 in 10 people who die in the U.S. each year die of heart disease.

The more omega-3 fat you eat, the less omega-6 will be available to the tissues to produce inflammation. 🐟 Omega-6 is pro-inflammatory, while omega-3 is neutral. A diet with a lot of omega-6 and not much omega-3 will increase inflammation. A diet of a lot of omega-3 and not much omega-6 will reduce inflammation. ⬇️

Find more info and stats here: https://chriskresser.com/how-too-much-omega-6-and-not-enough-omega-3-is-making-us-sick/

πŸ₯‘ One of the best things you can do for your own health and the health of your family is to get rid of all refined oils from your home. Replace them with saturated fats for cooking and extra virgin olive and avocado oil for dressing.

🌿 Struggling with gut issues and gastritis? You're not alone! Many factors, from diet to stress, can contribute to these uncomfortable symptoms. But at Well-Rooted Functional Medicine, we're here to help you find relief and restore balance to your gut health.

πŸ€” While many of us are familiar with gut issues which can encompass a range of symptoms including bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation, gastritis specifically refers to inflammation of the stomach lining, often causing abdominal pain, nausea, or indigestion.

πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ At Well-Rooted, we don't just treat the symptoms; we address the root cause of what's ailing you. Through comprehensive testing and personalized treatment plans, we uncover underlying imbalances and develop strategies to restore your gut health naturally.

πŸ“ˆ The results speak for themselves! Take our male patient, for example. By following our recommendations and working with our wellness consultants, he experienced significant improvements in his gut issues and overall well-being. Plus, his liver function labs improved, and he even reversed a positive ANA to a negative result!

❓ What does a positive or negative ANA mean? ANA, or antinuclear antibody, is a blood test used to detect autoimmune diseases. A positive result may indicate an autoimmune condition, while a negative result suggests a lower likelihood. Reversing a positive ANA to negative is a promising sign of improved immune health and overall wellness.

πŸ’š Ready to take control of your gut health and reclaim your vitality? Schedule a consultation with us today and discover the power of functional medicine in uncovering the root cause of your health concerns. Your journey to optimal wellness starts here!

Gut health has a direct relation to what you eat and drink! πŸ˜‹ Processed foods, added sugars, seed oils, alcohol, etc all cause inflammation in the gut and can lead to an imbalance in gut bacteria.

Signs and symptoms of an imbalanced gut microbiome may include:
πŸ”Έ Persistent fatigue
πŸ”Έ Digestive issues
πŸ”Έ Frequent infections
πŸ”Έ Brain fog and difficulty concentrating
πŸ”Έ Sugar cravings (yes, those insatiable sweet tooth moments!)
πŸ”Έ Skin issues like rashes or eczema
πŸ”ΈJoint and Muscle Pain
πŸ”ΈWeakened Immune System

πŸ‘ Foods to focus on for gut healing and overall gut health:
β€’ High quality meats/proteins - pasture raised, grass fed, wild caught,
organic, uncured
β€’ Load up on low glycemic fruits like berries
β—¦ Dates are known for high sugar content and it might seem weird to
suggest them for candida(yeast) die off but they actually have a cool role in removing waste from the gut while giving nutrients back. Good sweet treat for potential sugar cravings as well. Try some medjool dates, 3-6/day is the sweet spot
β€’ Load up on cooked vegetables
β€’ Use herbs/spices when cooking - so much nutrition in herbs!
β€’ Use herbal teas like nettle (anytime) or dandelion (morning only, great for
liver)
β€’ Drink lots of water!! Use electrolytes like: Cure brand, Ultima, Redmond's
Relyte, LMNT...etc
β—¦ In between meals is best
β€’ Limit caffeine, you can still have it but I find more success if we begin to
reduce
β—¦ Mold free coffee brands: Purity, Bulletproof, Kion, and Organo King
coffee (reishi coffee blend, used as anti-parasitic)

πŸ‘ŽFoods to Avoid:
β€’ Added sugars/processed carbohydrates - nothing fake or overly processed
β—¦ Can try dates, Honey Mama's, or dark chocolate for sweet tooth
β€’ Alcohol, now is not the time
β€’ Grains - wheat, rye, barley, oats, rice, quinoa, millet (for now, not forever)
β€’ Cured or processed meats
β€’ Farm raised fish
β€’ Additives and preservatives
β€’ Inflammatory oils
β€’ Condiments with added sugars or junk

🌿 Gut health is more than just eating right and taking probiotics! 🍏🦠 Even with a healthy diet and supplements, issues like bloating and indigestion can persist.

πŸ” Recently, a male client in his 40's came to us with these exact concerns. Despite his efforts with diet and probiotics, he was still experiencing discomfort.

πŸ”¬ After a thorough examination of his labs, we discovered a significant candida overgrowth in his gut. 🦠 This goes to show that sometimes, the root cause of gut issues isn't always obvious, even when you're doing what you think is right!

πŸ’‘ Did you know that an imbalanced gut microbiome can influence other health factors beyond digestion? πŸ€” Research suggests that gut health plays a crucial role in immune function, mental health, hormone regulation, and even skin conditions.

πŸ’ͺ That's why it's essential to address gut imbalances comprehensively, beyond just probiotics and diet alone.

🌱 Moving forward, our plan is to help our client rebalance his gut health with a multifaceted approach tailored to his individual needs.πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ We're here to provide individualized protocols and answers for healing and wellness because we understand that every person's journey to optimal health is unique.

πŸ” Lab Improvements:
