Vitamins and Supplements
1. The Multivitamin for Everyone - Innate Response One Daily
Whole Food, Organic Vitamin for enhanced digestibility and nutritional value. Since its whole food, it can be taken anytime of day, even on an empty stomach with no issue! (Product Code IN43004)
2. Designs for Health - GI Revive Powder
This powder provides comprehensive support for optimum gastrointestinal health and function. The lining of the gut must have proper permeability and integrity so it can not only absorb nutrients, but also prevent toxins, allergens and microbes from gaining access to the blood stream. Maintaining gut health is the key to maintaining overall wellness. I've had great success with myself and others, simply mix into water or another beverage and drink once per day.
(Product Code GIREV)
3. Natural Vitality - Calmful Sleep
I have always loved Natural Vitality's CALM Magnesium powder for its magnesium repletion (nearly 50% of Americans are deficient in magnesium). For my clients who avoid dairy, I recommend the CALM plus Calcium powder to aid in maintaining calcium stores. Now, Natural Vitality has a Calmful Sleep powder that contains magnesium, melatonin, GABA and L-theanine (a relaxing amino acid) studied for their ability to hep the body ease into a restful sleep.

5. Integrative Therapeutics - PanPlex 2 Phase Capsules
Digestive aids are a good thing for everyone to have on hand. Digestive aids can help if you have: occasional bloating and gas, feel full after eating only a small quantity of food, if you have infrequent mild indigestion/heartburn, bowel irregularities, see undigested food in stool, and definitely if you have had your gallbladder removed. If symptoms have lasted over a couple months you should schedule an inquiry call with me to determine possible underlying issues.

4. Aura Casia Essential Oils
My favorite oils to use are lavender, peppermint, orange, lemon, cinnamon, and frankincense.
Peppermint is great for headaches and energy. Lemon and orange are wonderful for mood boosters mid-day! There is nothing lavender can't do. It is used for pain, burns, cuts, sleep and relaxation. If you don't have an oil diffuser yet, or are looking for another one for a different room. I love this dry diffuser by Dr. Mercola (Product Code DM9118)
