Metabolism- The Holy Grail of Wellness – Part 5

The Gut, the Brain and the Immune System

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
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Changes in bowl movement
  • Gas and Bloating
  • Food intolerance
  • Fatigue – Difficulty Sleeping
  • Anxiety Depression

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!          

Are you familiar with our NOW-T program (NeuroOsteoWellness Therapy)? It is an incredible stand-alone program.

  • High intensity interval training
  • Boosts metabolism – synergy with Zerona and PowerPlate
  • Stimulates muscle growth so you burn calories 24/7
  • Feel younger and stronger
  • Safe for patients in their 80’s, effective for young as well

We are including this in our Metabolism Repair program! If you are seeking weight loss, detox, body-contouring, inflammation reduction, and mood enhancement, our Metabolism Repair program is the perfect fit!  We want to help you with healing from the inside out and offer the coaching and support to help guide you to success.

Call Renovare Wellness at 623.776.0206 for more information. This could also be a perfect gift for someone you love.

Understanding Inflammation

Key Points:

  1. Excessive chronic inflammation is the primary cause of virtually every chronic disease of aging:
    • Arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis
    • Chronic Pain
    • Osteoporosis
    • Dementia: Alzheimer’s type, Lewy Body, Vascular dementia
    • Heart attacks, stroke, and vascular disease
    • Multiple Sclerosis, ALS,
    • Diabetes & Obesity
    • Most forms of Cancer
    • Feeling Old
  2. Inflammation is controlled by our Immune System (which is controlled by our brain)
  3. 80% of our Immune System is located around our digestive tract (gut)
  4. Our lifestyle is either activating the “ON” switch of inflammation or activating the balanced On/Off regulation of Wellness
  5. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) aka photo biomodulation is a powerful tool to turn off excessive inflammation and the lasers we use at Renovare are FDA level 1a cleared (the most stringent research-based approval available) to reduce nociceptive chronic pain ANYWHERE in the body.
  6. The resolution of inflammation is fibrosis (scar tissue) that creates joint and fascial restriction and chronic pain. These tissues need to glide and slide to close the pain gate and keep us flexible and pain-free. 
  7. Resolution of inflammation in the lung (from asthma, infection, pneumonia, COVID, COVID vaccines) is fibrosis leading to scarring and lung damage.
  8. Spinal adjusting/manipulation of joints and soft tissue is required to improve the mechanical integrity lost from fibrosis to create the neuro sequence closing the pain gate & restoring healing and health.

The PgE2 (Prostaglandin E2) Inflammation Pathway involves:

Eicosanoids – inflammatory prostaglandins: our Omega 3/6 ratio controls this signaling pathway to a large extent

  • The same cascade that creates inflammation creates cancer
  • Too much Omega 6 high linoleic vegetable oil drives inflammation – the wrong fats may be even worse than too much sugar
  • Quality Omega 3 EPA-DHA Fish oil dampens inflammation
  • Low level lasers dampen inflammation with NO SIDE EFFECTS, only side benefits like:
    • Systemic Energy Boost – Give Your Cells Back the Energy of Your Youth!
    • Reduced Swelling & Inflammation and Pain Relief
    • Accelerated Tissue Regeneration
    • Activation of anti-aging/longevity pathways
    • Improved blood flow to promote accelerated healing & repair
    • Neurogenesis – making new nerve cells
    • Mitochondrial Biogenesis – making new mitochondria
    • Stem cell production and integration
    • Healing of Leaky Gut and Leaky Brain
    • Promote all antioxidant systems including glutathione
    • Protects from free-radical damage                
    • Increased parasympathetic activity/Vagal stimulation for calm, peaceful, digestion, detox, and reduced inflammation
    • Repair and protect against DNA & RNA damage & telomere shortening
    • Decrease stress hormones and promote youth hormones like HGH
    • Healing with No Drugs, No Surgery, No Side-Effects

635 nm Red Lasers (LLLT) knocks out COX /prostaglandin, IL-18, & TNF Cytokine pain pathways. Violet lasers knock out IL-6 cytokine pain pathway.

Understanding Cytokines

  • Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is the most powerful Cytokine “ON” switch for inflammation and is converted in the liver to hsCRP, a key inflammation heart attack & stroke risk lab marker that appears on lab test panels.
  • 405 nm Violet Laser knocks out the IL-6 Cytokine pathway especially well
  • 635 nm Red Laser knock out IL-18
  • Both lasers turn on IL-10  – an ideal combination

VAT is an Inflammation Factory

Visceral (around the abdominal organs) Adipose (fat) Tissue is abbreviated as VAT.  This is often called the “Fat that Kills” since it strongly elevates heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, dementia, chronic pain, and chronic disease risk. VAT turns on inflammation dramatically.

VAT can be stubborn and resistant to most weight loss programs. What works is repairing our Metabolism to correct Insulin Resistance or Metabolic Syndrome

Based on our years of experience and training in functional medicine and functional neurology, we have created an Integrated Metabolism Repair program below:

Renovare Metabolism

Repair & Fat Burn Programs

2X/week sessions:

  • Zerona FDA approved Fat burning laser sessions
  • 30 min NOW-T and Power Plate session after Zerona session
  • Custom supplement, lifestyle, and support program to help you each step of the way in repairing your metabolism

The FDA approved Zerona Laser system energizes fat (adipose) cells to release their stored triglycerides (fat) into our circulatory system where they can be carried away to be burned as energy in our mitochondria.

An awesome quick and easy boost to fat loss in any area of the body

Mitochondria: The Key to Everything

Wellness = Energy, Energy, Energy!!!

Cell mitochondria anatomy. 3d illustration

Our energy comes from our mitochondria which are tiny energy factories packed into our cells – we have 2000 mitochondria packed into the tiny cells of each heart and brain cell.

How well our cell energy factories (mitochondria) generate ATP (the fuel that powers us) determines our biologic age.

We can’t change our chronological age (number of birthdays) unless we lie (not that
anyone we know would ever do that) 🙂

We can change our biologic age – the age we function. We all know people who are age 50 but look and feel age 80 as well as people age 80 who look and feel age 50. My Dad is a great example of the latter.

A key part of aging is losing many of our precious mitochondria. To make matters worse,
our remaining mitochondria suffer damage leading to an energy deficit. Remember,
 Wellness is energy, energy, energy. To sum it up:

Energy =

  • number of mitochondria in each cell
  • Health & efficiency of those mitochondria

We are as Young as Our Mitochondria!

What can we do to support our mitochondria?

  1. We can improve the Well ness & functional efficiency of the mitochondria we
    have.
  2. We can make new mitochondria (biogenesis) – at any age!

Improving the Efficiency of Our Mitochondria

If we are not making energy efficiently, we are instead making fat & destructive free
radicals. Here are some steps that are proven to work:

  1. 635 nm wavelength red coherent laser therapy. The Erchonia professional grade
    cold lasers (do not generate harmful heating) are the most effective available
    anywhere to do this – with the research to back it up. These healing lasers boost
    energy production by our mitochondria between 40 and 50%. An amazing “battery
    charge”. This laser photonic energy also triggers multiple anti-aging cellular
    pathways. The violet and red laser combination we use also trigger making new
    mitochondria.
  2. Eat nutrient dense whole foods and avoid processed foods.
  3. Avoid the nasty mitochondrial poison, glyphosate (Roundup), which is sprayed on
    our crops and concentrated in our vegetables, meats, and processed food. Eating
    organic is phenomenally important to minimize exposure. The average American
    has 1 pound of this toxin in their body – no wonder we are so fat, sick, tired,
    anxious, depressed, and inflamed.
  4. Eat less sugar and fruit – high levels are toxic to our mitochondria and metabolism.
  5. Eat more Veggies, quality protein, and healthy fats: Olive, Coconut, Avocado, MCT
    oil are good sources.
  6. Supplement smart – the Core 4:
    • A high-grade Multiple Vitamin/Mineral like Mega Multi Pro
    • A bioavailable source of high potency magnesium like Acti-mag
    • Vitamin K2-D3 at optimal dose based on blood lab testing
    • A high quality, clean, bioavailable Omega 3 like Omega Pure 1300 Pro which
      is 320% better absorbed than regular fish oil.

7. Advanced Supplementation:

  • A probiotic like MegaSpore Biotic to support our Microbiome – the 100
    TRILLION bacteria/microbes that live mostly in our gut. Did you know that
    our Microbiome talks to our Mitochondria? We MUST have a healthy,
    diverse, balanced Microbiome for our Mitochondria to work well.
  • Time-released Alpha Lipoic Acid. I use ALA-Max which we have found to be
    the most effective form.
  • A bioactive high-grade methylated resveratrol. I take our Resveratin Plus (Resveratrol/Pterostilbene Complex) to activate the Sirtuin pathways to turn off the aging cell signaling pathways.
  • Coenzyme Ql0 I CoQl0 I ubiquinone – we especially like the more active Ubiquinone form.
  • Pyrroloquinoline Quinone I PQQ I Methoxatin
  • L-carnitine
  • Creatine

8. Intermittent fasting: I use green tea, MCT oil, and Collagen protein in my breakfast drink on my workout days. It increases my strength up to 20%. This carb fasting approach triggers ketosis so I am burning fat for fuel which is much more efficient than burning sugar leading to my increased muscle strength & efficiency.

9. High intensity interval training – I combine fasting with my NOW-T exercise
sessions 2X/week with Austin in our clinic. It takes just 15 minutes of variable
resistance training 2X/week to powerfully activate the anti-aging pathways while
boosting mitochondrial wellness.

10. Exposure to cold. I use cold (cool in the summer here) showers and cold
immersions in our unheated swimming pool in the winter.

11. Great quality and quantity of deep, restful sleep is profoundly important for our
mitochondrial health and wellness.

12. Effective relaxation techniques – especially meditation

13. Get enough Sunlight while avoiding sunburns – we are “solar powered”.

Making New Mitochondria

This is called mitochondrial biogenesis and can be turned on at any age. Most of
what works to improve the efficiency of our Mitochondria also works to trigger
biogenesis. Here are the top triggers for making new mitochondria:

  • Intermittent fasting
  • High intensity interval training – I combine fasting with my NOW-T sessions
    2X/week with Austin in our clinic. Takes just 15 minutes of variable
    resistance training 2X/week to powerfully activate the anti-aging pathways
    while boosting mitochondrial wellness.
  • Supplement with bioactive methylated Resveratrol (pterostilbene)

Sleep: The Holy Grail of Wellness

Our quality of sleep determines our Wellness perhaps more than any other factor. Lack of sleep can kill.  Vehicle crashes from drowsy driving exceed those from BOTH drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs combined.

After being awake for 19 hours, drivers were as impaired as those legally drunk.  Getting behind the wheel with 4 hours or less and you are 11.5 times more likely to crash.  Four hours of sleep and being drunk is the worst increasing the risk 30X.

Great sleep lifts all boats in the harbor and is the best anti-inflammatory known for both the brain and body.  It is the anti-aging miracle that heals both body and brain.

What is great sleep?

  1. Fall asleep easily without need for a drug.
  2. Stay asleep though the night with no interruptions.
  3. Awake rested, recharged and ready to go.
  4. A balance of NREM sleep and REM sleep

NREM (Non Rapid Eye Movement) sleep is deep delta wave sleep that allow our brain to prune away connections no longer being used, detox and flush away toxins, and normalize inflammation and swelling.  Lack of NREM sleep leads to poor memory and dementia symptoms.  Laser or other stimulation to the prefrontal cortex can enhance this critical form of sleep.

REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep allows making new connections. While dreaming, the “theatre of our mind” combines memories in new and remarkably creative combinations.  It solidifies movement patterns like the new piano piece or basketball shot so by morning, we “have it down”.  Poor REM sleep is often demonstrated by someone who can’t remember if they dreamed and is also linked with a high risk of dementia. Thiamine 50 support this type of sleep.

Lack of sufficient quality and quantity of sleep leads to memory and function losses just like dementia.  In fact, you can create dementia through poor sleep.

NREM deep sleep activates the deep cleaning, glymphatic cleaning and detox system that flushes out chemical toxins, adenosine, tau protein, amyloid, and other toxic proteins linked with dementia.

This is so important that just one night of poor sleep creates a prediabetic condition the next day and can lead to binging on up to 40% more junk food carbs than normal.

What helps us get to sleep?

Our circadian rhythm helps us wake up and fall asleep on schedule when working properly.  We need sunlight on our face and just 5 minutes of exercise to set our circadian clock in the morning.  In the evening, it is ideal to eat dinner at least 3 hours before bedtime.  Also really important to turn off computers, phones, TV, and any other electronics at least 1 hour before bedtime – 2 hours is better.

Lastly, avoid “junk light” especially in the evening.  LED lights, computers, TV’s, and phones emit harsh blue frequencies that rev the brain making quality sleep unlikely.  Wearing “True Dark” twilight glasses at least one hour before bed blocks 4 different sleep harming wavelengths of light.  Ideal is wearing our True Darks when the sun goes down.  https://truedark.com/twilights/
