CDC Estimates 1 In 2 Adults Has At Least One Chronic Condition

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in two adults (133 million Americans) has at least one chronic condition such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, or arthritis. Chronic illness is now also linked to seven out of every 10 deaths in the United States. OH MY GOSHHHHHH!!!!

🌿What are you doing to prevent chronic disease? Is your diet/lifestyle inflammatory for you, thus causing systemic inflammation=disease?

💊💊Utilizing functional medicine, and empowering yourself to take control of your healthcare could literally save you thousands and thousands of dollars, prevent surgery, harmful drug side effects, and piles and piles of prescriptions meds.


Possible, SUPER conservatively treated causes: Yeast overgrowth, a leaky gut, allergies or sensitivities to many foods, including gluten, low levels of vitamin D and magnesium; hypothyroidism; and pre-diabetes. 😯😯😯😯

We have to do better! I know I’m on a mission to teach them better!!! We deserve better!

Belly Fat Has Got To Go!

INCREASED RISK for chronic disease
INCREASED RISK for a heart attack

I don't know about you, but I have much better things to do with my life than spend it at doctors visits, or in the hospital, OR taking prescription meds on the reg!

Increasing our intake of whole foods, that are right for our individual bodies, increasing our exercise and movement, and taking time for ourselves is so key. We believe here at Elements that wellness is mind, body, and soul! 

“Body mass index takes into account your whole body, and what we really care about is your waist; that is, fat inside your abdomen, near your vital organs,” said Dr. Roizen. “Fat in your hips, or legs is usually storage fat and not metabolically active, but, fat in your belly causes inflammation, especially in those organs.”



Chelation is an exceedingly sought-after therapy that is rarely found outside major cities. It has been used effectively for years as an alternative to heart surgeries. It has also been used to improve blood pressure, memory, energy, and for symptoms associated with blocked arteries and prolonged chemical exposure. You will have blood work, toxic element testing, and meet with Dr. Wade and Dr. Murphy before beginning Chelation. Give us a call to see if this may be a good fit for you! 


High Fructose Corn Syrup Linker to Infertility and Decreased Life Span

A soon to be published study has found that the fructose-glucose monosaccharide combination found in high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) was found to be more toxic than sucrose or table sugar.  The researchers compared 3 common sugar combinations: table sugar (glucose molecules), sucrose (fructose and glucose molecules bound together) , and HFCS like blend (individual fructose and glucose molecules.)  The researchers fed mice the mouse equivalent of 3 sodas a day while they were housed in a semi-natural environment and observed over their lifespan.  Female mice who ate the HFCS sugar blend had significantly (27%) decreased fertility, and almost doubled (1.87) rates of death. 

Added sugar is so prevalent in the American diet that up to a quarter of the population eats the equivalent of 3 sodas worth of sugar a day.  High fructose consumption has known links to obesity and insulin resistance.  This new study reveals vital information about the danger of high fructose corn syrup.
