Our hormones have profound – even magical – effects on health and wellness. Much of accelerated aging, skin sagging, muscle loss, obesity, brain shrinking, heart disease, cancer, and immune health is related to how well our hormones activate their receptors.
Like insulin resistance, can suffer with resistance to testosterone, estrogen, thyroid, progesterone, adrenal and Vitamin (hormone) D due to receptor problems.
Think of our hormones like a key to a door. A key is not helpful if the lock does not work. Hormone receptors are the “lock” located on our cell membranes. Our hormone receptors are being poisoned daily by the overwhelming toxins in our environment. We swim in a toxic brew of nasty chemicals like phthalates, plasticizers, pesticides, dioxins, flame retardants, arsenic, lead, mercury, and cadmium that dirty our hormone receptor “locks” rendering our hormones ineffective. Your doctor may say your hormone levels are fine and yet you feel terrible!
To make matters worse, our toxic environment combined with our toxic stress loads, poor sleep, lack of movement, and nutrient deficiencies work synergistically to lower our hormone production. This potent combination of dirty receptors and messed up hormone balance can lead to:
Anxiety and/or depression
Blood sugar problems
Loss of libido (sex drive) and sexual performance in both men and women
Brain Fog & brain shrinking
Infertility, PCOS, dysmenorrhea, Menorrhagia
Early perimenopause now occurring in young women in their late 20’s
Perimenopause and Menopause weight gain & other problems
Andropause and low testosterone in men – even very young men
Dizzy with standing, low stress tolerance
Poor cold tolerance
Skin sagging, wrinkling
Looking and feeling old – hyper-accelerated aging
Immune weakness so we get sick easily and Low secretory IgA
Important for prevention and repair of Leaky Gut
Heart disease & cancer risk
Do our best to eat organic, drink water filtered to remove the nasty stuff (ask to learn more on this), use ecofriendly, non-toxic cleaning products, soaps, and air fresheners. Also support our detox pathways with exercise, sweating, sleep, and supplements. In addition, we now have 2 exciting, new specialty nutraceutical supplements carefully designed by one of the top hormone docs to detox our hormone receptors and balance our hormones – naturally and effectively:
Did you know that 70-75 percent of our immune system is in the gut? Every cell in our body has a job to do, and every cell needs energy. Because we live in a toxic world our cells are losing energy. With the Zerona, we are jump starting those cells to remind them what their job is.
When lasering the gut area with Zerona, it is not only causing the fat cells to open but has a profound effect on the mitochondria (our energy powerhouse). In turn, there is an anti-inflammatory response in the gut – which in turn improves our brain and emotional well-being!
Inflammation in the gut can contribute to a host of diseases, one of which is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (or IBS). 60 million Americans, or 20% of the population, have been diagnose with IBS.
The symptoms can be painful and disabling!
Pain and Cramping
Changes in bowl movement
Gas and Bloating
Fatigue – Difficulty Sleeping
These symptoms can be improved by following an integrative approach and utilizing Zerona on a regular basis.
Benefits of Zerona’s Red Wavelength
The laser turns on the cells to fire more efficiently (mitochondria, ATP increase). This improves blood, oxygen and nutrients into the area.
The laser breaks up scar tissue – prior surgeries, scars create a global negative impact in the body.
It will help with collagen remodeling and help reorganize those scars because scars do create havoc
The laser puts out the same coherent energy and frequencies as human cells do.
This accelerates healing and communication.
Has anti-inflammatory properties
AND The Gut’s “Second Brain” Influences Mood and Well-Being!
In our last article we discussed how the laser help open up the fat cells to dump, but Why Do Toxins Get Stored as Fat?
Toxins are absorbed & neutralized by white blood cells in the lymph nodes
This process is severely impaired in a congested lymphatic system & unhealthy digestive system. As a result, the toxins return to overload Liver
The liver becomes congested creating a cycle of toxicity
The liver dumps the fat-soluble toxins into the blood stream
Toxins are stored in fat cells for many years and can cause oxidation (free radical damage), inflammation, & damage
When you utilize the Zerona, the body will have a detoxification process happening. We rely on our lymphatic system to take away toxins. If it is sluggish or congested due to lack of activity, toxic overload, etc., it will need help with this process. Renovare then uses Vibrational Plate Therapy to help enhance our lymphatic movement. Just minutes on this plate is like running for an hour!

Chronic overnutrition and obesity induces low-grade inflammation throughout the body. Termed “meta-inflammation,” this chronic state of inflammation is influenced by macrophages (immune cells) located within the colon, liver, muscle, and adipose tissue.
Meta-inflammation has been linked to
Insulin Resistance *
High blood pressure
inflammatory bowel disease
profound impacts on global health
Metabolic Syndrome = Insulin Resistance. *
Insulin Resistance is what we term “Type 3 Diabetes” which is worse than Type 2 because it is Strongly Linked to Alzheimer’s. Instead of converting food to energy we convert food to Fat and Free Radicals that create massive injury & inflammation.
Inflammation is the Gateway to diseases of aging and Why Metabolism is the “Holy Grail of Wellness”.
When We Fix Metabolism We Can Slow Aging and Sometimes Reverse It.
In 2004 the above information was initially published. The chief medical and scientific officer of the American Heart, American Diabetes and American Cancer Society got together stated that Metabolic Syndrome (Extra belly fat) is the “Gateway to Chronic Disease”.
Metabolic Syndrome Doubles heart disease and stroke, Elevates Triglycerides and Cholesterol, leads to High Blood Pressure, Erectile Dysfunction, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Type 3 Diabetes – Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Decline, Osteoperosis, Fatty Liver, Obesity, Sleep Apnea, Sarcopenia (Loss of Muscle. This would also mean loss of bone), Type 2 Diabetes
How Do we solve this?
Fixing the Metabolism – which isn’t always easy! We need synergy – an integrated program which addresses all the puzzle pieces. Synergy – 1+1+1=9!
If you want to know more about Metabolism Repair, call Renovare Wellness at 623.776.0206

We are as young (or old) as our cytoplasm. The quality of our structured water intracellular gel determines the health and function of our mitochondria, cell, and entire body and brain in profound ways.
Our medical science establishment has been focused on the nucleus and the DNA within with failed results for chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, …
The past 20 years of research into Epigenetics has shown us that the influence of the cell nucleus and DNA is quite limited in chronic disease – 10 -20%. The environmental influences that affect the cell are 80 -90%.
We are now learning that the cell cytoplasm (intracellular structured water/gel) that surround the nucleus that houses our mitochondria and cytoskeleton (microtubules, actin, vinculin) is a profound reflection of environmental influences on cell health.
How can we affect this?
Our thoughts, feelings, and relationships
Our time in nature
grounding in nature
Sunlight, NIR sauna
Movement – an active lifestyle
Exercise, NOW-T, HIIT
Structured water, low deuterium water
PWT, Ultrasound, Pulsed Magnetic Field therapy
Supplements: Drainage Detox Homeopathic, L-glutamine, Ashwaghanda, ALA Max CR, Resveratrol, NAD+Gold, ATP Ignite, Nitric Balance, CoQ Max Ubiquinol,
Adversely affected by harmful, synthetic EMF – eg. 5G, microwaves
FEAR, Worry, ANXIETY, Depression, self-hatred are profoundly harmful
I am enjoying immensely the book” “The Obstacle is the Way – The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph” by Ryan Holiday. There is SO MUCH negative news it feels at time like an avalanche of overwhelming problems. How can we handle this and stay healthy mentally, emotionally, and physically?
By finding the silver lining. In every adversity is an opportunity. In every dark cloud there is a silver lining – but only if we look for it.
This is not a head in the sand approach. Not a glass half full approach. This is diligently looking for the opportunity to grow, make a difference, and gain wisdom and experience through the adversity.
As Seneca the ancient Greek philosopher wisely said: “ A good person dyes events with his own color – and turns whatever happens to his own benefit”
So what some benefits of adversity?
Keeps us alert and stimulates us to learn
Raises the stakes and stimulates us to grow
Motivates us to prove our adversaries wrong
Makes us tougher and more resilient
Helps us to appreciate true friends and mentors
Shows us examples of who we don’t want to become
Helps us prioritize what really matters – relationships, truth, integrity, purpose, passion, serving others
Helps us discover inner strength and resources we never imagined we had
Helps us develop our leadership & warrior skills as we take on Goliath in battle
What are some Adversities I am grateful for?
The lie that the path to Wellness is more drugs. I have fought this battle for almost 40 years and I am grateful for everybody we have inspired and empowered on the journey to Wellness. I am grateful for the motivation and inspiration to keep learning and growing. I am grateful for the challenge to become better and better in writing and sharing truth culminating in 5 books so far with a 6th in the works. I would never have invested the massive time, energy, and effort in writing books without this adversity lighting my fire.
The lie that masks and lockdowns protect us from a virus. This has inspired me to inform my staff, patients, and family so they can be empowered with the real source of immune Wellness and live free of fear.
The lie that vaccines are our protection. This inspired me to do the research and write Chapter 8 of “Creating an Invincible Immune System”. Wow – what an eye opener! Vaccines have saved millions of lives from polio, small pox, and other communicable diseases – not true. Polio and small pox were 98% reduced BEFORE the vaccines were introduced. The credit goes to clean water, clean food, and improved sanitation.
The Noble Lie vs. Truth
Plato describes the Noble Lie as a lie by those high status individuals/leaders of superior intelligence in the best interests of those who can’t be trusted with the truth.
We have the political elites, the ultra-billionaires, the technocrats, government bureaucrats, and corporate giants spewing Noble Lies like never before:
Better health through more drugs/vaccines- really???? We are less than 4% of the world’s population and use almost half of all the drugs produced on the planet!!! Has this made us healthier? We spend more on healthcare (really disease care) than any other country in recorded history and are currently rated 70th in health by the World Health Organization.
Let’s not waste this opportunity to stand for truth in the midst of lies and deceptions. Every kind and truthful word we share with friends, family, and others makes a difference. Be courageous and hang in there.
Truth will Prevail!
I am inspired by the quote from Gandhi who took on the world’s super-power in 1930, the British Empire.
“First they ignore us, then they laugh at us, then they fight us, then we Win”
A lot has been written about the connections between Hashimoto’s and gluten, environmental toxins, leaky gut, etc. However, very little has been discussed about the potential use for Cold Laser therapy, even though several recent research studies found some promising results.
Hashimoto’s antibodies can lead to destruction of thyroid tissue, which can result not only in the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction, but also changes in thyroid appearance on ultrasound, and the presence of abnormal blood markers.
Currently, most traditional medical treatments aim to control the symptoms or get the TSH and T4 into the medical normal range while often ignoring the underlying root causes and the destruction that occurs in the gland.
The exciting thing about these studies on lasers and their effects on the thyroid is that they appear to not only trigger tissue regeneration, they also seem to help normalize function and decrease the need for medications, without any side effects.
The most recent study comes out of the July 2015 edition of the journal Photochemistry and Photobiology. In this study, the thyroid glands of rats were damaged with gamma radiation, and then were treated with low level laser of 632 nanometers for 6 sessions. The study concluded that the laser improved the rat’s thyroid function, liver function, antioxidant levels, and blood cell markers. No side effects were noted. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25975382
The August 2014 edition of the journal Photomedicine and Laser Surgery found that cold laser treatment to patients with autoimmune thyroid disease significantly increased levels of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1). (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25101534) Why is this important? The August 1991 edition of the Journal of Autoimmunity found that TGF-β1 could calm down and suppress auto immune attacks, and that it may even prove helpful in causing remission of Graves disease. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1777015)
Patients with autoimmune thyroid disease often have altered blood flow within the thyroid. The 2012 journal ISRN Endocrinology found that 10 laser treatments improved blood flow within the thyroid, as visualized with Dopplar ultrasound. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23316383)
But perhaps the most exciting study I came across was in the August 2010 journal Lasers in Surgery and Medicine. Patients were given 10 treatments over 5 weeks. They found that all patients needed less thyroid medication, including 47% who did not require any medication through the 9-month follow-up. Can you imagine being able to go 9 months without needing thyroid medication?
Furthermore, the medication dosage needed in the other participants decreased, and remained decreased even 9 months later. TPOAb (thyroid antibody) levels also decreased, and thyroid tissue appearance improved on ultrasound. This means that thyroid tissue damaged by auto immune attacks was actually getting repaired with laser stimulation. Again, no side effects were noted. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20662037)
These are just a few of the exciting studies that support the use of lasers in thyroid disease, but the applications go even beyond just the thyroid. As far back as December 1993, there was a far reaching study from Japan in the Keio Journal of Medicine that found that laser therapy on cancer cells “inhibits growth and increases cell-specific destruction”, and that “other immune system-related diseases, such as atopic dermatitis, some forms of eczema, asthma and asthma-related ulceration, have responded well to” laser therapy. I found numerous other studies that also suggested that cold laser was effective even for helping with thyroid cancers. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8126975)
So let’s review what these studies found. Cold laser therapy was shown to:
Reduce TPO antibody levels
Reduce the need for T4 medications in a majority of patients, even 9 months after treatment, and eliminate the need in nearly half the patients in one study
Increase the amount of cellular antioxidants such as glutathione
Improve thyroid tissue and vascularization on ultrasound examination
Increase levels of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1), which calms down the auto immune activity and may have the potential to cause remission of Graves’ disease
Decrease the activity of inflammatory molecules such as nuclear factor kappa beta and interleukin 6
Stimulate the repair of tissue damaged by the thyroid auto immune attack
Have no side effects
These are all pretty powerful findings. I was surprised to find the data going back over 20 years supporting cold laser’s use on auto immune diseases, considering that most of us have never heard about it in mainstream media or from our doctors.
Obviously more studies are needed, but the current research suggests that lasers may provide significant help for the growing numbers of auto immune thyroid patients out there. Have any of you out there tried this therapy or heard about it from your doctor? If you have, please comment with what your results have been.
