A quick overview Advanced Glycation End Products, or AGEs are harmful compounds that are formed when proteins or fats combine with sugar in the bloodstream. They also go by the name glycotoxins. Exogenous AGEs are found in foods that you put into your body as breakfast, lunch and dinner. As opposed to endogenous AGEs, exogenous AGEs are not formed in the body, but are ingested. AGEs also accumulate naturally as you age. The pathological problem happens due to their...Read More »

GMO’s, or genetically modified organisms, are becoming a real problem in the U.S. and are contributing to a number of illnesses and deaths. Even though they are a known health concern, why does the U.S. continue to modify our food today? These are questions that have been asked for years, with few answers. For the last 50+ years, genetic engineering has been promoted as the solution to end… World hunger (i.e. yield). Malnutrition (i.e. nutrient content). Herbicide...Read More »
Here we are at the end of our 4-part “Understanding Toxicity” series. We’ve explored how to determine what your body’s reactions might be when exposed to toxins. Now we’ll take you full circle in the cycle of toxicity. Immune reactions Your immune system develops reactions to substances it’s not equipped to handle on top of the preceding phenomena. Specifically, an immune reaction is when the body produces antibodies to...Read More »
What the human digestive tract looks like The human digestive tract is a 30-foot-long tube, with lots of folds and bends, of varying surfaces and purposes, that runs from the mouth to the anus. Centered around the small intestine, extending upward to the stomach, downward to the large intestine, and sideways to the supporting organs, the “gut” as we call this area is the foundation of human health or disease. Focusing in on where the action’s happening, we find a...Read More »
Today I’d like to give you an introduction to your microbiome. As you will learn, they play a huge role in shaping who we are. The human digestive tract houses bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses, molds, protozoa, and worms totaling about five pounds, and numbering in the trillions. When referring to their community, we now call this mass of microbes our “microbiome.” And when referring to their category, we call them either “gut flora,” “microflora” (old names),...Read More »

I feel fortunate enough to have participated in one of Cathy’s Teleclasses and purchased her ADD Parental Strategies program. I really needed my husband to understand more about ADD so we could help our son better. The program dove into who we are as people and showed us the importance of communication between us in order to communicate more effectively with our son. I’d recommend this program to everyone, whether they have ADD kids or not. It’s a real eye opener! Thanks.
