Ep 19: Candida: Sounding the alarm on fungal infections as a root cause for severe illness, including cancer.
Candida is not what you think... it's MORE. There is so little known about this that most think it's just one thing: yeast infections. But in fact, it's a lot more harmful. Especially when it comes to an overgrowth or Candidiasis. In this episode, I aim to raise awareness about how common candida (or having an overgrowth or imbalance of it) is, what illnesses or diagnosis may be linked to fungal overgrowth and more. Not to mention it's  difficult to test for and many doctors don't believe it's a problem! So what do you do?  Tune in to learn more about what candida really is and how you can use diet and supplementation (along with an educated guide) to rid yourself of the bad bugs that can cause many more problems than meets the eye.  Products mentioned on this episode:Candida Control™https://ngvitamins.com/products/candida-control%E2%84%A2?_pos=1&_sid=66e41b136&_ss=r Yeast Buster Herbal Tincture: https://ngvitamins.com/products/yeast-buster-1oz?_pos=14&_sid=66e41b136&_ss=rVital CandiPURE, 14- Day Yeast Cleanse:https://ngvitamins.com/products/vital-candipure?_pos=12&_sid=66e41b136&_ss=rLINKS: Doug Kaufmann has A LOT to say about this topic, so here’s just one video to get you started:  https://youtu.be/jKvq27kn6fE?si=5zw6rTDkqg6X8pWOHis website is a must visit on this topic: https://knowthecause.comOther articles:  https://www.mercola.com/ebook/yeast-infection.aspxhttps://bodyecology.com/articles/can-digestive-enzymes-assist-in-controlling-candida-overgrowth/https://drhyman.com/blog/2010/07/23/is-hidden-fungus-making-you-ill/https://draxe.com/health/candida-symptoms/ As mentioned the episode, here's how to contact me:  https://www.uplevelc.com/contact  NOTE: This information contained is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or health condition.

Ep 17: Robin Gargano: Resiliency Strategist, Emotion Code Practitioner. Is emotional trauma keeping you stuck?
Ever meet someone and ask, how is it possible for one woman to go through so much emotional pain only to come out on the other side stronger and still smiling?  I have. It's my dear friend Robin Gargano that makes me think those thoughts.  After enduring much emotional trauma, Robin  wrote the book, The Beauty within Tragedy: How a Resilient Soul can Turn Grief into Gifts. She has become a best-selling author, impact speaker, and proud mom and wife. And she was also certified in Mental Performance Mastery, the Emotion Code and is trained in complex trauma.Robin is also CEO of L4 ~ Livin’ Life, Lovin’ Life with a mission to change the story of mental toughness by turning suffering into strength through resiliency, leadership, energy work and mindset training. As I say in the show, sometimes you can be doing all the "right" things and still feel stuck. If that happens, you might consider your emotional state. Perhaps the emotion code can help.   Robin shares her journey about how she had to earn her smile all over again after enduring nearly insurmountable grief. She is a strong soul and I know she cares deeply for all those she touches with her lovely spirit and strength of character. You can contact Robin at:  robin@l4livin.com As stated, she's offering a special rate for those who find her via this podcast. NOTE: This information contained is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or health condition.

Ep 14: Busting Salt Myths: Good Salt, Bad Salt and the book, The Salt Fix

Ep 14: Busting Salt Myths: Good Salt, Bad Salt and the book, The Salt Fix
Turns out, a low salt diet is "miserable and dangerous," according to Dr. James DiNicolantonio in his book, The Salt Fix: Why the Experts Got It All Wrong--and How Eating More Might Save Your Life. Not only does a low salt diet put stress on your organs, it may cause you to eat more food and more of the wrong foods. This can result in weight gain and potentially more serious negative health impacts as well. So, in this episode I am busting some myths about salt. Plus, I touch on the history, the differences between various types of salt and common "knowledge" you might be basing your dietary decisions on that now seems to be revealed as untrue. PRODUCTS mentioned at the end of the show include:  *Nature's Garden of Naples, L-Carnitine 500 mg https://ngvitamins.com/products/l-carnitine-500-mg-60-vegan-capsules?_pos=2&_sid=7229e4b24&_ss=r*Nature's Garden of Naples, Omega-3 Once Dailyhttps://ngvitamins.com/products/omega-3-once-daily?_pos=9&_sid=467101335&_ss=r*REGARDING LINKS: We are a small business at Nature's Garden of Naples, so keeping the website up-to-date can be a challenge.
