Nutritional Support

Lifestyle Recommendations:1. Practice good sleep habits and get between 8-9 hours of sleep a night. Take the "Are You Getting Enough Sleep?" questionnaire and follow the Insomnia Nutritional Support Protocol if needed.
2. Avoid extra stress and obligations.
3. Rule out heavy metal toxicity and adrenal insufficiency.
4. Check for hypothyroidism and hypoglycemia.
5. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.
6. Participate in a regular balanced exercise program that includes wearing a pedometer to ensure that you collect steps and move more. High intensity short bursts (20-60 seconds) of activity during the day is recommended to enhance growth hormone release. Also engage in resistance training that works all major muscle groups (work each group at least 2 times a week).
Dietary Recommendations:1. Whey protein or other quality protein source (chicken, fish, eggs, meat) is essential at every meal to stabilize blood sugar levels.
2. Avoid sugar and sweetened products. Replace sugar with the polyol sugar xylitol.
3. Gluten and dairy avoidance may prove extremely helpful for stabilizing moods.
4. Avoid omega 6 oils such as soybean oil, corn oil, safflower oil and concentrate on omega 3 oils from flax seed, salmon, sardines, sardines or mackerel.
