Got some powerful facts for you today! - The top 10 causes of death in the US account for 75% of ALL deaths. - 7 out of the top 10 causes of death are NUTRITION & LIFESTYLE related! - The Top 10 Causes of DEATH: Heart disease, Cancer, Respiratory Disease, accidents, Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, influenza & pneumonia, kidney disease and suicide. - This was crazy for me to learn and really reminded me of what Maimonides said hundreds of years ago. - With so many people dying of degenerative chronic disease it’s insane to me that the sicker people seem to get the more they flock to medication, rather than flocking to a healthy diet and lifestyle!! - We have more meds, doctors and hospitals than EVER in any human history, but we also have some of the highest rates of chronic disease and chronic illness deaths than ever before too! - Let these facts help you remember this... - If your diet and lifestyle are wrong, medication is of no lasting use! However, if your diet and lifestyle are right, medication is hardly ever needed! - In other words, if you are BEING, THINKING or ACTING unhealthy, there is nothing I can do or any doctor can do for you that will make and keep you healthy! - Take care of yourself and live healthy! - Here for you, #drmikelim @functionalmeddoc
In college, I tracked my periods on my wall calendar. A red dot (so subtle!) marked day 1 of my period. . It wasn’t very advanced, but it was when I first started paying attention to my not-so-monthly cycle. Back then I also read paperbacks and kept a grocery list on a magnetic notepad on my fridge. . I don’t do any of those things anymore though because – hey, there’s an app for that! . If you’re like me, you keep everything on your phone now, and there are even some amazing fertility tracking apps you can get, too. . These apps don’t just help you remember when you last got your period – the best ones can accurately predict when you’ll be ovulate each month. You can use that information to help you get (or not get) pregnant. . Yes – the right fertility tracking app can replace hormonal birth control if it is used correctly! . But if you’re going to rely on cycle tracking to predict your fertility, it’s critical that you use a reliable app – and they aren’t all created equal and not every fertility tracking app you can download is actually useful. . Some really can help you predict when you’re ovulating, but others are no more sophisticated than my old red-dot method. . Want to know how and what fertility trackers can and can’t do – and which ones I use and recommend (even if you have PCOS or irregular periods!)? . Check out my latest blog post: The Truth About Fertility Apps (And the Exact Ones I Use and Recommend) .

How to Reverse Heart Disease⁉️ . Dr. Dean Ornish was the first such physician who demonstrated that heart disease can be prevented. Furthermore, his programs not only prevented heart disease, but once established can reverse heart disease with easy lifestyle changes and without the use of surgery or medication. . 🔑Diet is Key to Eliminating Risk of Heart Disease🔑 . Many people wait until disaster strikes before addressing any significant lifestyle changes including radical shifts in diet. . I remember my Uncle Kuni, who when I was a child survived a massive heart attack and immediately afterward took on a strict vegetarian diet. . He ate clean food, exercised daily and lived for 20 years after that initial cardiac event. In fact he outlived almost all of his siblings who didn’t get that early “memo” that food matters and that what we eat is truly a matter of life or death. . In addition to diet, there are some promising natural treatment options that can be incorporated into a program that includes medication and medical management of the disease. . One issue occurs when the heart lacks energy or ATP and research shows the majority of these patients also have low CoQ10 levels. . In my clinic we run organic acids tests on patients even without any signs of advanced heart disease and we often see early warning signs of CoQ10 levels being low by measuring hydroxymethylglutarate levels in the urine. . Abnormal hydroxymethylglutarate is representative of low CoQ10 levels and will show up as an easy to identify marker decades before problems like a heart attack or congestive heart failure occur. . Therefore, CoQ10 supplementation can provide some improvement in patients. . The organic acids test panels also include markers for oxidative stress, such as 8-OH-DG which is strongly correlated with onset of heart disease. . So lowering 8-OH-DG and increasing CoQ10 levels in addition to a complimentary high plant based, antioxidant rich diet can be the basis

Do you know the difference between a food allergy and a food intolerance? . ⚡️Food allergy . Food allergy is usually an immediate reaction . For example, my daughters, if they eat peanuts, there will immediately be a reaction. They will have hives, oral symptoms, like tingling, and probably throat closing. . What happens in the body is that your body is sensitized to peanuts, so it develop an immunoglobulin called IgE. The body’s immune response instantly makes that to defend itself . So each time you eat a food you are allergic to, the immune response is even higher. . 🐢 Food intolerance . Food intolerances are usually a delayed sensitivity. . So the immune response isn’t as quick, and the symptoms might not be as sudden and noticeable. . For example, if I drink milk I experience fatigue, problems sleeping, gut issues, inflammation in the gut, and a GI response. . The symptoms of food intolerance are not clearly defined and it’s not always immediately after -- it can be days to a week after we eat the food. . . The good new is that you can find out if you have any food intolerance with saliva, stool or blood test. Here at Revitalize we typically use the Blood test. . And the treatment is relatively simple. It usually involves healing the gut and avoidance of the foods. . And you want to find out if a food sensitivity could be causing you to feel “off”, because it’s seems like now there is a lot more food sensitivities than there was when I was growing up. . 📍Mental fog 📍Constipation 📍Fatigue 📍Feeling drugged or sleepy after you eat a food 📍Diarrhea 📍Bloating . So if you have any of the above symptoms it’s a good idea to get tested! . . . . #eatforhealth⠀ #foodismedicine⠀ #whole30food⠀ #eatcleandiet⠀ #eatcleantips⠀ #functionalmedicine#functionalmedicinedoctor#functionalmedicinefoods#functionalfood#functionalnutrition#akron#akronohio#akronite#onlyinakron#akronlove#guthealth#guthealthmatters#guthealthy
When was the last time you thought about sex? . (Did she really just say that?) (Yup, she did!!) . The thing is, one of the most important things I ask new patient is, about the state of their libido & sex life in my Health History Questionnaire. . This important area of our health so often gets brushed aside in conventional medicine. . Of course there's no universal standard for what determines a healthy or "normal" sex drive--that's unique to each of us. . Sex drive is not just something nice to have--it's a huge marker of our wellbeing! . When our desire goes M.I.A., it often means there is some aspect of our wellness that is asking for our attention & care. . And I believe that as part of inspired health, you deserve to feel turned on! . Some fun facts about your menstrual cycle & the hormones that “turn-you-on” . 💃At the beginning of a cycle, all hormones low, and desire will most likely be lower . 💃Mid-cycle, estrogen, and testosterone both spike, so this can make you slightly more aggressive & receptive at same time . 💃This shift ☝️ in hormones can explain why sometimes, woman are interested in sex more as cuddling, or emotional bonding, or just the comfort of skin on skin contact, & other times they’re more like “fuck me now, please” & they just want, an uncomplicated, good old romp in the hay. . 💃Women with higher T levels may tend to have more of the aggressive type drive, & women with higher estrogen levels, may tend to be more receptive/seductive. . 💃Many women notice a libido peak premenstrually, when progesterone starts to fall, relative to T levels. Genitals are more sensitive & it’s easier to orgasm . 💃Some have more desire during menses for some reason…but since serotonin levels can drop during this time, it also can make someone grouchy, irritable, mean…great combo! Haha-- horny & mean.🙃 . Want to see if your hormone levels are fine-tuned? . Take my free hormone quiz -- link in bio! @briewieselman . . . .
Did you know that taking vitamin d on an empty stomach or separate from food reduces effectiveness? It requires fat for proper absorption. Nearly all of our patients come in with a vitamin D deficiency, probably because we spend so much time indoors. We start them on either 5,000 or 10,000 IU for a short period until the deficiency is resolved. For dosing, work with your doctor rather than self-treating because vitamin D is fat-soluble. You can also get regular vitamin d from fatty fish, although for mercury concerns, make sure you are limiting fish to 1-2 times a week.

This is the best I’ve felt in awhile. Seeing a naturopathic doctor has paid off so well. It’s taken the guess work out of my health. I feel my body is finally reacting in a positive way to all the healthy things I was doing for it since I started seeing my doctor who has helped me by getting me on homeopathic remedies for lower thyroid function, to stabilize my cycle and hormones, and to regulate the health of my gut. Before my mood was pretty middle of the road- it took a lot to get me excited, and it took a lot to get me upset (aside from the one crazy day before my period where I would rage). Now I have more days of excitement and being my old goofy/giddy self that I didn’t even realize had gone away for some time. Couple that with how I’m no longer insanely bloated after I eat. My stomach no longer has that heavy uncomfortable feeling post munch. I’m getting back to my happy place with my health without having to be insanely rigid with how I eat, nor am I working out like a banshee, like I used to have to do to get results. I’m eating mostly plant based aside from eating raw cheese and pasture raised meats AND I eat quality chocolate (in moderation) daily. I’m not deprived and what I’m eating keeps me satiated. I go to the gym about 3x per week, walk the dogs 2 miles almost daily, and run 2 miles 1-2x per week. Yoga/stretching almost daily, as well as plenty of time out in nature. So here I am at 31 years old- an age in which I’ve been warned all my life that my health will start to go to shit when I reach my 30’s and that it’s harder to lose weight and stay in shape- in the best/sustainable shape of my life without having to overdo the dieting/working out, or without having to heavily deprive myself. If you’re tired of playing the guessing game with your health, and modern doctors can’t figure out how to help you or you don’t want to go the modern doctor route- Find yourself a holistic/homeopathic/functional doctor.
“Still alive but I’m barely breathing”🌬🌪🎤 🎶 . You could say my HR is over the norm of 100 bpm with palpitations present intermittently. My respiratory rate suggests dyspnea, as in seen in anxiety — putting my clinical medicine knowledge to use as I explain how I’m feeling this exam season 🙃 . Jk I’m actually just pushing though & feeling ok overall— but I have been very MIA here while I try & pump my brain with all the knowledge 🧠 . Just want to say I’m here & well but delayed on getting some of my recent holiday recipes on the blog— so they will be up this weekend when I can get a little breather before my exams next week! Stay tuned! There’s some goodies: cranberry lemon loaf, peppermint fudge doughnuts, candy cane popcorn — just to give you an idea 😏 .

Are you afraid of being seen? . ▶︎Maybe you’ve been ridiculed for standing out. ▶︎Maybe you’ve been shut out of your social group for “shining” ▶︎Maybe you’re scared to outshine someone in your life. ▶︎Maybe you’re scared how people in your life will think of you & what you’re doing. . The thing is this fear can seep into all areas of our lives. ▶︎Relationships. ▶︎Health. ▶︎Business. ▶︎Etc. . And this fear can seem so real. . I know because I’ve done it. All of those scenarios above? #beentheredonethat . And the thing is, I know I’m not alone. Because when I talk to people just like you during my calls (like a brave soul today) you tell me of the heartbreaks, confide in me that you’re scared to share your story, divulge to me the fears of being seen. . And sometimes, counterintuitively, the more letters you have behind your name...the scarier it can be . But I want you to know that you can overcome this fear. . What we do is more than simply create content for you in our management packages. . So many of my clients, after working with me, confide in me that one of the best things about what I’ve done for them is not about the number of followers, or the new leads... (ya those are nice but..) . BUT it’s about the confidence I’ve given them. It’s about the sense of breaking free from the protective shell. It’s about giving them a chance to fully step into their power. . We bring you, your expertise, and your vision to life so that you can finally be seen...as the real you….as the expert you know you are. . . . This post is dedicated to the brave, brave soul that I spoke with today & who shared their story with me. Thank you for giving me a gentle reminder of why I love to do, what I do & the inspiration to give inspiration to others through this post. . . . . . #fmcmsolution#functionalmedicine#functionalmedicinecoach#functionalmedicinedoctor#fxmed#fxmedicine#functionalnutrition

CANDIDA~ a fungus, or yeast which lives in your 👄 + intestines. Everyone actually has it. It’s job is to aid in digestion and nutrient absorption, but when it is running rampant, like it is for me, it breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxins into your body. How fun! 😖 . Birth control, antibiotics 💊 and stress can all lead to the killing of the good guys. Candida is the reason behind my terrible immune system, brain fog 🧠, malabsorption of nutrients, mood swings, extreme bloating and addiction to sugar 🍫 . . Again it comes back to diet~ cutting out processed and most natural sugar, grains, legumes and vino (looks like🥖🍚🍷🍫🍪🍟🌽🍾) limiting fruit 🍎 , plus adding in lots of probiotic foods+ supplements~ will all hopefully help in healing my gut🤞🏻
We see a LOT of couples at @julietaylormd because low sex drive affects both partners. Yes, our clients feel a number of different symptoms related to menopause & andropause, but in our opinion, if you lose your sex drive too, then what’s the point?? If you are experiencing changes in your libido and can’t figure out why, it’s time to get your hormones checked. There is absolutely no shame in it!! Give us a call today, or check out the link in our bio for more information #themoreyouknow
According to the @american_heart, about 62 million Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease. However, you may be surprised to hear that 150 years ago, heart disease was almost unheard of. Cardiovascular disease is a relatively new disease. Stressful lifestyles, processed foods, environmental toxins, and obesity have all played a part in fostering this disease. Studies show that nearly 75 percent of patients hospitalized for a heart attack had cholesterol levels that would indicate they were not at high risk for a cardiovascular event. At Restore Health we go beyond cholesterol to assess your risk. Our Cardiovascular Program focuses on preventing or reversing existing cardiovascular disease.
