(undetected without a lab test)

Are you eating the right foods and taking the right supplements to support a healthy, active lifestyle?


Inflammation can be uncomfortable, however, scientific research tells us that undetected, systemic inflammation can lead to heart problems, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and many degenerative diseases. With every bite that you take, you could be feeding inflammation or, with every bite that you take, you could be promoting a healthy, non-inflammatory environment in your body.

Why Foods can be Pro-Inflammatory: Sugar, and carbohydrates that turn to sugar fairly quickly (pasta, breads, pastries, bagels, etc.) are low-fiber foods that cause insulin production, and when we ask the body to keep producing more and more insulin, it promotes an inflammatory state. Trans fats (partially hydrogenated oils) are man-made, altered fats that upset body chemistry. Processed/ packaged foods are usually full of trans fats, sugars and refined carbohydrates. Deep fried foods oxidize the fats, which make toxic compounds that increase inflammation. Sodas are full of sugar, and even diet sodas have

been linked to metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance. Any food causing a reaction produces an inflammatory response. Many people react to gluten, a protein in wheat, and to proteins like casein in dairy products. Omega 6 fats (vegetable oils) are essential in the diet, but when too many are consumed in relation to the omega 3 fats, they block the antiinflammatory omega 3 pathway. Fast food is notorious for adding sugar, fried fats, trans fats, salt and hidden calories to the mix. Eating out frequently at restaurants can involve getting a lot of hidden inflammatory ingredients.

Why Nutrients/Food can be Anti-Inflammatory: After the body experiences trauma, cellular debris can cause an inflammatory cascade. Part of that cascade involves pathways that produce things like prostaglandins, cytokines, and other inflammatory substances. Nutritional proteolytic enzymes attack cellular debris before the cascade.* Other nutrients, like ginger, boswellia, spirulina, and many others can block the production of inflammatory substances by affecting regulating enzymes called cox-1 and cox-2, or by affecting some other aspect of the inflammatory cascade.* Some things, like fatty fish and fish oil, actually make anti-inflammatory

substances. Walnuts and almonds are high in omega 3’s, and make a better nut choice than say, cashews. Spices like curcumin, rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, cayenne and marjoram all have scientific studies documenting their powerful properties when it comes to inflammation.* Eating organic is important; removing toxic residues from the diet enhances an antiinflammatory state. Whether it’s the beginning of the inflammation pathway, or steps along the way, all of the nutrients listed in this booklet are among the top leaders when it comes to choosing supplements for support! * References available on request

Lyso-Lyph-Forte Lyso-Lyph-Forte contains high-dose proteolytic enzymes, and is a leading product choice for inflammation support. Proteolytic means that the enzymes degrade the cellular debris that causes inflammation. Bromelain is a powerful proteolytic enzyme that has proven in numerous studies to have a beneficial effect on inflammation* Additionally, other enzymes like papain and trypsin positively influence pathways*, and when joined with other supporting nutrients such as zinc and rutin bioflavonoids, they combine to offer maximum support. Dosage will depend on degree and

practitioner advice, but an average recommendation is 4 tablets 4 times a day AWAY from food. Work up slowly; enzymes are natural to the GI tract, however if there is healing to be done, enzymes may be irritating. For gut repair, Total Leaky Gut is an excellent formula. In a normal, uninflamed small intestine, over 70 billion cells slough off every day, and the gut needs repletion of nutrients to stay healthy. For those who want a plant-based proteolytic enzyme product that also works extremely well, there is Pro-Infla-Zyme. * References available on request

Total Inflam Total Inflam combines ginger, quercetin, boswellia, curcumin, and other natural cox-1 and cox-2 inhibitors with strong antioxidants and nutrient support. Slowing down cox-1 and cox-2 decreases the chances they will cause a problem in the inflammatory pathway. A common cox-1 inhibiting drug is aspirin, and a common cox-2 inhibiting drug is celecoxib, however both drugs carry

side effects. This is a superb formula that is working on a different mechanism than the proteolytic enzymes, and makes a good addition to any protocol for inflammation. Dosage: Depends on degree and practitioner advice, but an average recommendation is 1-2 tablets 3 times a day.

Total Green Total Green is a protein powder packed with healthful greens (spirulina, chlorella, parsley, sprouts, etc.), antioxidants, phytochemicals, herbs, cox-1 and cox-2 inhibitors, nourishing vitamins and minerals, and lots of ingredients to support a normal response to the inflammatory process. Total Green is wheybased; whey contains GMP’s, or glycomacropeptides, that have been named by researchers as being more anti-inflammatory than sulfasalazine (drug used for inflammatory bowel)*. Not

everyone who is allergic to dairy is allergic to whey, however if sensitivity to whey exists, then the protocol should continue without the whey powder. If there is no reaction to whey, it is one of the best things to include in the protocol. Additionally, making a protein shake with Total Green can rest the gut and allow the body to calm down and heal. Dosage: At least one scoop per day is advised. * References available on request

Complete Hi D3 This multifaceted nutrient is being correlated to many new benefits all the time, and one of them is inflammation. In fact, a 2008 study in the Journal of Inflammation reported low vitamin D levels were associated with higher levels of a marker for inflammation, “which may in part explain this vitamin’s role in the prevention and treatment of inflammatory diseases.”* Research is telling us that more people than not are deficient in vitamin D3, and that we are not getting enough for optimal health. Old recommendations are

being criticized for being too low, and many believe that 5,000 IU/day is a more optimal intake.* Complete Hi D3 offers a quick and easy high dose of 5,000 IUs of active, vitamin D3 from one tablet, to get all the benefits of this powerful and versatile nutrient. High dose vitamin D is becoming increasingly common with no side effects; check with your practitioner for dosage/contraindications, and to see if you are a good candidate for high dose vitamin D3. * References available on request

Complete Hi-Potency Omega 3 Liquid Complete Hi-Potency Omega 3 Liquid fish oil packs a walloping 2.4 grams of beneficial EPA & DHA (the potent long chain fatty acids in fish) in one teaspoon of fish oil! This product has all the important checklist items (few do if you read the labels): Molecularly distilled (triple filtered) to avoid the smallest bit of contamination; pharmaceutical grade (highest quality); highest omega 3-containing coldwater wild fish; right ratio of EPA to DHA; and complies with the CRN monograph. Additionally, the formula has the right accessory supporting

nutrients in the formula, such as black currant seed oil, flax seed oil, natural vitamin E, and natural fruit flavor (chasing with a sip of lemon or orange juice is good). Those who prefer capsules can take Complete Omega 3 Essentials, which also has the same synergistic ingredients in it. Highly recommended to accompany either form of fish oil is Complete Omega 3 Co-Factors, which protects the fish oil from oxidation, and also increases absorption and utilization. * References available on request

Additional Formulas Other formulas which may be helpful for inflammation include Liga-PN, which is a combination of valerian, fever few, passion flower, etc., and other nutrients that soothe and calm central nervous system signals, and Enzyme Pforesis Ice, which is a powerful topical enzyme application boosted with arnica, lavender, peppermint, aloe vera, and synergistic vitamins and minerals. Adrenal support may be indicated; the adrenals make natural cortisol that is antiinflammatory, and many times adrenal function is low. DSF (De-stress Formula), or DSF Herbal, or one of the Adreno-Lyph series (80, 160, or Plus) all address adrenal support and may prove to be beneficial. Choosing one will depend on the stage

of adrenal health; check with your practitioner for dosages and advice. If inflammation is causing a problem because of degenerating cartilage, Total Joint Support can be useful, complete with glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate, that have been shown to be most efficacious when given together*, along with other synergistic nutrients to boost joint support. Also, up to 70% of our energy can be diverted to digestive processes, and when the energy isn’t used on food, it can be used to fight inflammation. Consider supplementing with Total Enzymes to do some of the heavy lifting of digestion. * References available on request
