Restore Your Gut – Restore Your Life

What is Restore?

Restore is a revolutionary new approach to healing, which utilizes years of scientific research by medical doctors. They recognize that the underlying issue with so many modern illnesses is a lack of cell membrane integrity in the gut. In order to heal illness, the gut needs to be repaired. Restore prevents and heals the disintegration of the cell membranes and tightens cell junctions in the gut. It is a mineral and amino acid supplement made from carbon rich soil. An alkaline liquid, Restore delivers organic and essential trace amino acids and minerals extracted from lignite. Restore is not a probiotic or a prebiotic, however it provides a balanced dose of bacterial metabolites that restore the healthy tight junctions in the gut and the blood brain barrier. It enables the body to heal and create a strengthened immune system and gut biome. Simply put, Restore is formulated to repair the damage from eating toxins like pesticides and GMO’s.

Feeling Sick?

Are you doing everything right to be healthy but still feeling sick?  Do you have symptoms such as:

  • Autoimmune disease
  • Autistic spectrum
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Brain fog
  • Profound Fatigue
  • Weight Gain
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Infertility
  • Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Poor Digestion
  • Food sensitivities and allergies
  • Lactose Intolerance
  • Gluten Intolerance

Why is everyone so sick?

Our foods are now grown in depleted soil without the nutrients needed to infuse them with vital energy, leaving the plants weakened. This necessitates the use of pesticides, antibiotics, and genetically modified types of plants (GMO’s) capable of withstanding all the toxins needed to grow them. All of this ends up in the food we eat. This denatured food causes cell membranes in the gut to break down, allowing the toxins to enter the blood stream. Our immune systems are overloaded leading to inflammation and disease. Disease can take many forms, but the common denominator is inflammation from a compromised gut lining. Restore rebuilds the gut barrier when it’s been degraded by toxins and restores an optimal environment for the entire digestive tract. Just as an unhealthy gut can lead to inflammation and disease, a healthy gut may lead to improved immunity and healing of many health issues.

The Facts: Restore is:

  • Based in medical science
  • Tested with “gold standard” protocols for non-toxicity
  • Produced in the USA
  • Packaged in recyclable bottles
  • Made from organic soil

The Simple Way to Heal

The good news is that healing from chronic illness and inflammation can be as straight forward as restoring our gut integrity. When the membranes in our guts fall apart, the gut no longer recognizes foreign substances. It doesn’t know self from non-self. This confusion may affect the whole being, causing stress to body and mind. Fortunately Restore has been developed. Restore offers the key to healing and feeling good again. Support your immune system, enhance your mental clarity and mood, and enable your digestive system to function the way Mother Nature intended. Restore harmony to your gut and to your life with Restore.

 

 

Balancing pH Levels with Alkaline Foods

pH_balancing_supplements
By Lynn Gamwell

Every spring I hear a few health conscious folks praising the wondrous nutritional benefits of nettles. The “perfect spring detox” food they rapturously exclaim while standing over those horribly invasive plants which always sting my skin if I even get near them! My husband wages valiant, annual battles against these plants as they threaten to take over our garden. But alas, they come back year after year. This year I have decided to embrace the wisdom of wild plant experts and practice tolerance toward nettles as I learn to appreciate them for the super food they are!

I am on a mission to detoxify and create a more hospitable environment in my body for overall health and wellness. Nettles are going to help me to do this! One of the most important aspects of health is pH acid/ alkaline balance. This is true in the external environment where, for example, the pH of a stream affects all the organisms living in it(1) This is also true within our bodies where the pH of our internal environment can affect the uptake of necessary dissolved minerals allowing them to become available for our use.(2) Unfortunately in our world of stress, toxins, and less than perfect eating habits, our systems become more acidic than they should be. This can mean that nothing works the way it should. At an extreme, acidosis can cause fatigue, aches and pains, blood sugar regulation problems (potentially leading to diabetes), respiratory ailments, weight gain, inflammation, gastrointestinal problems, and so much more.

How, you wonder, are nettles going to help me balance my pH? As Dr Oz says, it’s time to “fight toxic acid overload” by eating more alkaline promoting foods to neutralize the body’s pH and bring the body’s acid-base ratio back into balance.(3) In addition to being alkalizing, nettles happen to be rich in essential minerals which are absorbed better in the alkaline environment they help create. But what does one do about all those nasty stinging hairs? Processing them in any way gets rid of this down side. So I will be juicing them, incorporating them into smoothies, drying them for tea, and making this delicious springtime soup!

Mint and Nettle Vegetable Soup (vegan, gluten free, dairy free )

(adapted from Trinity Bourne)

Serves: 6 bowls

Ingredientsnettle_soup_naturally_raise_pH

  • 1 ½ lbs. potatoes
  • 3 ¼ cups filtered water
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
  • 6 cups organic frozen peas and carrots
  • ¾ oz or 21 g. mint
  • ¼ lb fresh nettles

Instructions

  1. Scrub and chop the potatoes into small cubes so that they will cook quickly.
  2. Combine in a heavy soup pan with filtered water. Bring potatoes and water to a boil.
  3. Add 2 teaspoons of sea salt.
  4. Add 1 can organic coconut milk.
  5. Wear rubber gloves to wash, de-stem, and roughly chop the nettles. If nettles are young and tender it is not necessary to de-stem or chop.
  6. Wash and de-stalk the mint.
  7. When the potatoes are soft and easily pierced with a fork, add the frozen peas, carrots, and any other frozen veggies desired.
  8. Bring the veggies back to a boil.
  9. Once boiling, mix in the fresh mint and nettles. Simmer while these quickly wilt down.
  10. Blend the soup until creamy smooth.
  11. Serve with parmesan if desired. (Not necessary for dairy free diets.)

Now, I’d like to tell you that every day I will be cooking alkalizing foods such as nettles in this yummy recipe and juicing lots of other leafy greens to load my body up with acid reversing wholesomeness. But I live in the real world just like you. So to speed up my pH balancing mission, I am also filtering my water to make it more alkaline with the New Wave Enviro Alkaline Filter Pitcher.   Another great product for protecting against an overly acidic system is Vaxa Buffer pH. This homeopathic and herbal aid to balancing acid levels in the body is my go to source for creating a healthy habitat within. Manuka Honey is a super food with many nutritional benefits including balancing pH(4). I can add it to yogurt or many other foods. So on the days when I don’t care to wrestle stinging nettles, I’m going to enjoy some Wedderspoon Manuka Honey and take my Vaxa Buffer pH with filtered alkaline water. Then I’ll know that I am doing the very best I can to balance the pH of my body’s inner ecosystem!
