I used to be like you. I lived a very sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle. I sought out that afternoon sugary snack and sustained off overly processed foods and drinks. In a nutshell, I was living an unbalanced and unhealthy lifestyle, which left little time for exercise, family, and sleep.
On top of that, I was battling an autoimmune disease, ulcerative colitis. My symptoms severely affected my energy levels, digestion, and overall health and feeling good. In 2008, my symptoms reached a life-threatening level and I found myself in the hospital fighting for my life. Doctors informed me that I would need to have a life changing surgery to remove my entire colon to abate the symptoms.
My wife, Megan, told me, “Things have to change. It’s time to own your health.”
My new mission and passion in life is to share my knowledge about nutrition science and an ultra-wellness lifestyle with as many people as possible. That is my promise to you.
In my approach to ultra-wellness, I consider every aspect of your lifestyle – food, breath, stress, knowledge – and help you create balance. This is called an integrative functioning approach. When each of these pieces are in equilibrium, the outcome is energy, healing, and vibrance.
The key to a total health transformation is reducing inflammation in the body which is the precursor to many chronic diseases and illnesses and creating a body that is balanced.
I know that something magical happens when you start feeling good. You sparkle a little more. Your hair shines. A new light within begins to glow. You sleep better. You have more clarity. Your skin is smoother. Your mind is sharper. You see new possibilities. You have more energy. Your immune system thrives. You awaken. You feel… vibrant.
My mission is to provide and curate the resources, information, guidance, support and goods that will produce the greatest impact for each individual person.
We can’t help but to get nerdy about science and food. It’s part of our DNA. Speaking of DNA, did you know that you hold the power to turning on and off genetic predisposition for certain diseases such as cancer, auto-immune disorders, and more?
Nutrigenomics is the study of how foods affect our genes and how individual genetic differences can affect the way we respond to nutrients (and other naturally occurring compounds) in the foods we eat. Nutrigenomics has received much attention recently because of its potential for preventing, mitigating, or treating chronic disease and certain cancers through small, but highly informative dietary changes.
The way our food is grown, made, etc. has been under scrutiny for the last few years. We live in a chemicalized world where many of us are suffering from the effects of a poor diet and sedentary lifestyle that are contributing to an explosion of chronic illness.
Chronic diseases and conditions—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and obesity are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems. Did you catch that? They are preventable.
While modern medicine has allowed us to live longer lives. However, we are sick. We are tired. We are stressed. We are medicated. That’s no way to live.
Eating is connection. Medical research has indicated that disease prevention starts with consuming raw fruits and vegetables. Yes, raw. Because cooking (even steaming) kills the nutrient-delivering enzymes of our foods – which are the building blocks of the body. Many cultures still consume raw and real food without preservatives and chemicals, and they still have the longest life spans even with our modern medicine.
The China Study which surveys over 6,500 people from over 65 countries, remains the largest and most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted and proves that a plant based diet is prolonging lives. There isn’t much room left for debate.
We leverage this cutting-edge research to optimize the health of each of our unique customers by tailoring our juice, meal plans, and all of our products to fit your specific situation.
Need assistance with managing your auto-immune disease, Type II Diabetes or control your weight?
Or, maybe you just want to improve your nutrition?
We care and are your support companion in your wellness journey and this is what makes us different from being just another juice company.
When you embrace a lifestyle that completely nourishes you from the inside out, your whole being thrives. Your body is aligned. One of the most important and efficient ways to do this is through choosing whole, plant-based, nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory foods.
By utilizing the science of nutrigenomics, our products are made to start the healing at a cellular level and deliver these four pillars of health:
Fresh pressed juices have high water content and whole nutrients for optimum hydration and minimal digestion, leaving you more energy for vibrant living. Combine that with enzyme rich, phytonutrient-dense, powered raw foods and you’ll be running at full speed all day. Skip the caffeine and have more sustained energy.
ENDURANCE AND STAMINA
One 16-ounce Pressed Vibrance juice equates to 3-4 servings of anti-inflammatory, high alkaline fruits and veggies. This allows your body to rebuild your blood cells and balance your immune system while drinking – and enjoying – the most important foods for your body’s strength and endurance.
Our juices and foods encourage cell renewal and protect against environmental damage and premature aging. Enjoy a clearer, glowing complexion, shiny hair, and the sparkle that comes from beauty that is skin deep. You are what you eat (or drink). See for yourself.
Maintaining the proper acid/alkaline balance strengthens your ability for your immune system to thrive. Ideal pH for the human body is slightly alkaline – 7.30 to 7.45. When your body has too much or too little of this acidity, the effects can wreak havoc on your bodily functions including:
- Digestive System: High acidity causes inflammation which causes indigestion, nausea, bloating, gastric reflux, and more.
- Circulatory System: Acidity is the #1 cause of heart disease. The body reacts by lining the blood vessels with fatty plaques.
- Respiratory System: When tissues and organs are overloaded with acidity cells in your body are literally suffocated. This can lead to an overload of mucus, infections and viruses.
- Skeletal System: Pain, stiffness and inflammation of joints causing different types of arthritis.
- Integumentary System: This system is commonly known as your skin. Your skin helps protect you from the elements, but can develop lesions, sores, rashes, pimples and more when out of balance.
- Nervous System: Your nerves can be shot and deprive you of your energy.
- Excretory System: Your kidneys perform an essential function acting as the filter for your body. If there is an abundance of acid, this can form painful kidney stones.
- Muscular System: When acidity increases in the muscle cells, it disrupts the metabolism breakdown of glucose and oxygen to energy. This means muscles perform poorly in an acidic environment.
When these systems achieve that range of harmonious alkalinity, it can result in mental clarity, better moods, and overall increased vitality.
