How’s Your Gut Affecting Your Overall Health?

Do you believe that what happens in your gut stays in your gut?

You’ve heard that phrase, “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”. 

Well it’s kind of the same thing when it comes to the gut. We want it to stay there but that’s not happening. It affects the whole body. There’s many things that affect our gut health. What we eat is one of the obvious things. What we may not realize though is how long it can affect our systems. 

Check out this video to learn more…

70% of our immune system is located inside of the gut. Many of us nowadays are trying to figure out how to maximize our immune systems. We want to be prepared. We truly understand how important it is to have a healthy immune system. 

If we haven’t addressed these issues in our guts, then we’re at risk of many chronic illnesses. 

How do you know if your intestinal tract is healthy? What can you do to find that out? How do you fix it if there is an issue?

It’s important to talk to a professional.

I’m here for you!

Let’s get you healthy so that you can live the healthiest, happiest life.  

…And don’t forget about the Free MSQ questionnaire I offer. Fill this out  and have  a free opportunity to review that with me. We’ll be able to evaluate where you’re at with your health and ways to improve it.

Are You Afraid Of Contracting Coronavirus?

Are you afraid of contracting Coronavirus?

Have you been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, crohn’s or ulcerative colitis, and you fear the impact these germs may have on your life?

I want to talk to you about the difference between germ theory and terrain theory.

Germ theory is what we’re very familiar with. It’s the idea that viruses, bacteria, and fungi create illness. 

Terrain theory takes that a little bit further. We are being bombarded with virus, mold, bacteria, and everything else all the time. But, if our terrain (our body) is in good health, then we are resistant to these things. 

Find out more by watching this short video…

As we hear about the news with the coronavirus, we see that people in good health aren’t having nearly as many problems than the people with poor health. 

If you’re in good health, taking into account all factors, you should be fine even if you were exposed to this virus. 

On the other hand, if you have underlying health issues (sometimes we’re not even aware of them) then you put yourself at a higher risk.

This is where functional medicine comes in. We dig deep into history and do a lot of lab tests so we’re able to get to the root causes of your health issues. We don’t guess in functional medicine. We don’t throw a medication in here and a supplement in there just to see what happens. We make sure to find the root cause and address the issue from there.

We’re able to help you build a healthy terrain so that you’re not at risk when you’re exposed to different viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

Let’s get you healthy so that you can live the healthiest, happiest life.

CHRONIC ILLNESS IS A MYTH! Here’s Why…

Do you believe that your chronic illness is something you’ll have to live with for the rest of your life?

Is that something you’ve been told by your physician?

Have you been told you’ll have to live with pain and take medications for the rest of your life?

Let me tell you something…CHRONIC ILLNESS IS A MYTH! 

It’s a medical myth.

Watch this short video to learn more…

What do I mean by that?

Typically as a patient, when you’re diagnosed with a chronic illness your physician will tell you, “this is the medication you’ll need to take and this is the maintenance routine you’ll need to follow”.

When I was diagnosed at 12, I was told so many things. I was even told that if I did not have a colostomy surgery that I wouldn’t live to my 14th birthday. I refused to have it.

If you are a crohn’s or ulcerative colitis patient, newly diagnosed or struggling, but have not yet had surgery…then I want to work with you!

I’m here to tell you that there is hope. You don’t have to be in pain every day of your life. It does not have to be a struggle.

There are things that you can do that will change and improve your symptoms, your health, and your wellness.

Functional medicine is making this difference in people all over the world, every single day. 

I want to help you find what I have found. 

It’s possible to be free of pain, to be free of brain fog, to be free of medications.

I want that for you!

If this is you, please book a free call with me. Don’t suffer any longer. Book here –  bit.ly/CallDrCampbell

I Struggled With My Inflammatory Bowel Disease For Over 30 Years But Then Found Functional Medicine!

Do you have bowel symptoms that cause you discomfort? Symptoms like – abdominal pain, distention, bloating, gas, or those embarrassing gurgling sounds. 

Do you find these symptoms make it very difficult to walk into a room full of people?

Maybe you’re cancelling social engagements that you were really looking forward to, all because of your symptoms.

Maybe it affects your mood, your overall sense of well being. 

I’m here to tell you there’s hope!

Check out this short video to learn more…

I help people who have been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease who have not yet had surgery. I help by effectively getting to the root cause of the problem rather than treating the symptoms. 

It may interest you to know that not everyone who is diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s disease has the same underlying cause. So, treating them all with the same medications make no sense. It’s important to get to the cause of the problem and intervene at that level. 

That’s what we do in functional medicine. We dig deep into your history, your physical exam, your biochemistry, and we make adjustments so your body can heal itself.

How do I know this can work for you? Because I did it for myself, and I’m doing it for my patients. I was diagnosed at 12, and was told I’d have this disease for life and have pain every day. 

I was told so many things that turned out not to be true. 

I suffered for over 30 years with this disease before I figured it out for myself. When I found functional medicine, everything clicked. 

I want that for you!

If this is you, please book a free call with me. Don’t suffer any longer. We can talk about how we can get you the results you’ve been looking for. Book here –  bit.ly/CallDrCampbell

How Healthy Are You Actually? Here’s How To Find Out…

How healthy are you, really?

I know…you feel pretty decent most days, you see your doctor 1-2 times a year, and you have a couple medications that you take on the regular.

Maybe you have a few aches and pains, some sinus issues, or you’re tired a lot of the time…but everyone has that, right? We just have to suck it up I guess. At least that’s what we’re made to believe. Let me tell you – NONE OF THIS IS TRUE!

Learn more by watching this short video…

I’m here to let you know that a lot of these chronic symptoms that we have or cope with each day, are all symptoms of a greater problem. It’s a sign that our body isn’t right. There’s issues in our bodies that need to be addressed.

These symptoms can be very subtle in the beginning but over time it can have a huge impact for the worse.

Because of what we’re told and are made to believe, we start to believe that all of these things are normal and there’s no real solutions. It’s just part of life!

Our body has the tendency to cope really well for a while but then at some point there’s no more biochemical give to cope. That’s usually the time we end up in an emergency room, the doctor’s office, or with a new diagnosis and medication.

One great thing that we functional medicine physicians have that your doctor may not is a medical symptoms questionnaire. It will point out areas of your life and body that are struggling. As a functional medicine physician, this is a tool that I use often in order to evaluate where a client is at on the health-illness spectrum.

I prefer to use natural means to improve the body’s processes, and in finding health and wellness.

I want to challenge you today to take a real look at how healthy you actually are.

Comment below or contact me and I’ll send you this questionnaire for free. As well, book a complimentary call with me so that we can get you on the right path to wellness. Book here – bit.ly/HowHealthyAreYouActually

How To Eliminate Toxins From Our Environment So That We Can Live Healthy Lives!

I want to challenge you to take a look at your daily routine and the products that you’re using in your home. I want you to take a look at that from a toxins standpoint. Evaluate how many toxins are actually in your environment. 

When we think of toxins, most of us are aware that there are 100’s of toxins in our environment. But what we’re unaware of is that most of the toxins are the ones we’re using in our homes and on our bodies. 

Learn more by watching this short video.

Very interesting to note: 

  • Since WW2 over 85,000 synthetic chemicals have been registered with the EPA.
  • Over 130,000 in European countries have been registered.
  • Many of which have not been safety tested.

These are chemical products we’re using everyday without even realizing it. That’s somewhat disturbing. Just in the morning alone, the average person is using 300 or more chemicals. 

How do we eliminate these toxins from our body?

Our bodies use our liver, kidneys, and skin to eliminate these chemicals, but it’s taxing on the body. Our morning routines of using soaps, shampoos, deodorants, etc all slow down the detoxification process in our bodies. These toxins put us at risk of multiple autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease or any number of chronic illnesses.

It doesn’t need to be an overwhelming process in eliminating these toxins from our environment. One step at a time makes the world of difference. 

If this is something you’re interested in changing in your own life and in your home, to improve the health of everyone in your family, then take a look at the questionnaire offered and book a call with me here –  bit.ly/HowToxicAreYou

Is Crohn’s Disease Or Ulcerative Colitis Taking Over Your Life? It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way & Here’s Why…

Have you been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis, but not yet had surgery? Do you have pain every day of your life or many times during the week that are uncontrolled? Do you even have to cancel plans with friends and family because your symptoms are so bad?

If you continue down this path of illness, you’re 10 times more likely to develop colon cancer. You’re more likely to develop multiple autoimmune diseases. You can develop fistulas and infections that affect your whole body. These are all facts of life, among many more, for people with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis.

It SHOULD NOT be that way!

To learn more, check out this short video…

My name is Dr. Christina Campbell and I’m here to tell you that there’s hope. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 12 years old. From there I began my health journey. I was told this would be a disease I would have for the rest of my life. I was told I would be in pain for the rest of my life. I was told that I would likely be unable to have children because of the inflammation. I was told a lot of things.

These things don’t have to be true.

I began to have less pain, more energy, and felt healthier and happier. 

I rarely ever have pain anymore. I’m able to do so much more in my life, without having to maneuver around it because of my condition.

I found functional medicine where we really get to the root cause of your health issues. Not everyone who has Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative colitis will have the same symptoms or root causes. That’s why it’s so important to look at a person individually. Everyone’s different.

If you are ready to put your health first and learn more about improving your symptoms and gaining back energy, then please book a call with me for a complimentary consultation – bit.ly/CallDrCampbell

Immune Defense

A Good Defense Requires A Mindful Offense

Good Defense Requires a Mindful Offense

Our Current State of Affairs

President Trump released a statement that we are to remain in self-quarantine for another 30 days. The hospitals and urgent cares all over the country are over run and it seems like there’s no end in sight. Millions of misleading videos are circulating. Each one with new misleading “scientific” evidence on how to kill coronavirus. There’s even one that tells you to use your hairdryer to blow hot air into your sinuses to kill the virus! Insanity.

Why all this Misinformation?

Panic and desperation are likely the motives behind these crazy videos as well as the prayer chains being frantically passed around. People are wondering: what can I do? Will I get sick? How sick will I get? What about my elderly parents or my child who already struggles with multiple illnesses? How can I help myself or my loved ones?

This is not the first article I have written with suggestions on what to do. And many of you who know and follow me realize that I believe there are many natural methods for improving your immune system. Those who know me also know I believe whole food is the supreme source for nutrients. However, what I am going to share with you today is different. It is even better than random whole food. What I am sharing is a personalized nutrition and immune program created just for you!

What Do You Mean By Personalized Nutrition?

The Regenr8 program is the only program of its kind. This program uses advanced epigenetic diagnostics to deliver a custom organic superfood aimed at improving your personal epigenetic gene expression and metabolic profile. Thus, quickly improving your overall health and function of your body systems. My article on Personalized Regenerative Epigenetic Nutrition explains this unique program in more detail. Suffice it to say, this program fixes your gene expression by filling the unique gaps and needs of your body. It is specifically designed to improve Your body, Your overall health and every one of Your body system’s function in the process. Additionally, you can add the newly released Immunity Defense Kit, created to address our current special circumstances.

What is the VPack Immunity Defense Kit?

During a time of worldwide crisis, it is ideal to add personalized nutrition aimed at an overall health boost alongside targeted immune support. Immunity Defense Kit is backed by scientific studies in herbal phytomedicine to support stressed immune systems

Hard core scientific research and superb organic herbal formulation is at the base of the creation of this kit. In it, Regenr8 has created a two-fold plant-based offering.

First, the immunitea is a delicious herbal tea which comes in a sachet for cold brewing. Cold brewing protects the health enhancing constituents of the plants from the dangers of overheating. Drink it daily for general immune boosting throughout the viral season.

Second, is the immunidefense, an herbal supplement utilizing herbs that have scientifically demonstrated targeted immune defense and immune supporting qualities. So what is it that makes this herbal blend unique?

What makes this unique?

Potentilla + supporting herbs

Potentilla

An herb called Potentilla arguta makes this product unique to any other and is the foundation of this blend. This is a strong herb and thus, only available with physician support. This is where I come in!

The science shows Potentilla to be highly active in boosting our body’s particular immune pathways that fight viral illness and support healthy respiratory systems. This Canadian study by the Journal of Ethnopharmacology is one of many studies that provides specifics on the science of how this occurs.

In this study, 100 methanolic plant extracts were screened for anti-viral activity against seven viruses, including coronavirus. Potentilla Arguta, a member of the Rocaceae family, was one of the twelve plants that demonstrated strong anti-viral properties within the coronavirus family. Potentilla Arguta also exhibited complete inhibition of the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in this study.  This is not surprising since RSV and coronavirus are structurally similar. They are both single-stranded RNA viruses which infect mucosal surfaces. It is particularly important to inhibit viral respiratory intrusion of the coronavirus, as that is the principal cause of concern in coronavirus patients.  This is why this plant was chosen as the base of this herbal blend.

The powerful Potentilla arguta blended with Elderberry, Astralagus, Acerola, Echinacea, and green tea creates the VPack Immunity Defense kit.

Elderberry

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus, provides a strong immune system boost, and supports heart and respiratory health. It is rich in bioflavonoids, antioxidants and other components clinically known to enhance immunity. It also contains anthocyanins known to be highly anti-inflammatory in their effects.

Elderberry is especially supportive of respiratory system immunity during seasonal periods of acute stress. It has been studied with influenza cases and been found to improve respiratory function and decrease illness time. Influenza virus is responsible for this year’s particularly bad flu season. It is a virus with a known risk of cytokine storm and ARDS much like COVID-19.

Astralagus

Traditional Chinese medicine has used Astralagus for centuries to strengthen and regulate the immune system. Astragalus contains certain polysaccharides known for their immune supporting properties. Additionally, it contains Astragalosides (antioxidants) which support the integrity of the respiratory tract. Astragalus supports deep immune function by promoting normal levels of specific immune cells and aids in their function. Astragalus appears especially effective when immune function is stressed by epigenetic environmental influences.

Acerola

Acerola are one of the richest sources of Vitamin C, containing between 1500-4500mg/100g. This translates to 50-100 times more than that of an orange or lemon. Because of this high Vitamin C concentration, they are excellent immune system boosters.

Acerola also contains a plethora of phytonutrients including arotenoids phenolics, anthocyanins, and flavonoids. Additionally, acerola is high in caretenoids, several of which have significant pro-Vitamin A activity. This certainly explains the increased interest in this fruit by the scientific and pharmaceutical industries over the last few years.

Echinacea

Echinacea is well known for strengthening the immune system by stimulating the production of T-cells. It also increases the ability of white blood cells to fend off pathogenic invaders.

Green Tea

Green Tea is rich in antioxidants. Several studies have shown that green tea has antimicrobial properties that inhibit the growth of bacteria and viruses. Several chemical constituents of green tea give it these powerful activities.

Polyphenols, also called catechins, are one of the most powerful constituents in green tea. They make up about 30% of the dry weight of the tea leaf. Two in particular are noteworthy here: epigallocate chingallate (EGCG) and epicatechingallate (ECG). These two incredible constituents not only have the ability to supress bacterial and viral factors, but they can even reverse resistance to tough pathogens.

How Do I Use The VPack Immunity Defense Kit?

Regenr8 Immunity Defense Kit

The VPack Immunity Defense Kit includes highly concentrated herbal ingredients of Potentilla and Peppermint tea (10-day course) as well as a 5-day capsule supplement program of potentilla, elderberry, astragalus, rose hips, and echinacea. While they are not medicine, they are high concentration herbal supplements. Therefore, only use this kit if viral symptoms or exposure occur. Think of it as your immunity first aid kit.

Alternatively, use Immunitea 30-Day daily tea daily for immune support throughout the season.

The Race For A Cure

While our traditional pharmaceutical industry is hard at work developing and conducting clinical trials on potential vaccines, I know that you are seeking solutions NOW. I am here to help you find those solutions.

How Can I Best Support My Health Now?

The best way to improve your health is to become part of my 12 week functional medicine program. You can learn more about this by reading this article and scheduling a free consult with me today.

Not ready to jump in yet? That’s ok. The next best option is utilizing the 30 day epigenetic nutritive reset program alongside this VPack Immunity Defense kit. You will experience an overall improved state of health while specifically improving your immune defense with targeted herbals and epigenetically personalized organic superfood.

“Let your food be your medicine” ~ Otto Carqué in The Key to Rational Dietetics Published 1926

Do You Struggle with Your Health?

Are you struggling with energy or pain? Low energy? Sleep issues? Brain fog? Are you on the run and finding it difficult to get healthy home cooked meals on the table 3 times a day? Do you take $300 + worth of supplements every month that are supposed to make you feel better but do not really seem to do the trick? Are you a “regular” at a drive through of any kind? Do you wish you were the person who jumps out of bed before your alarm excited to start your day full of energy and enthusiasm? If you answered yes to any of these questions then keep reading! This could be your answer.

Many of us struggle with getting the nutrition our bodies need. Believe it or not, this includes star athletes and those who are preparing whole food healthy meals 3 times a day! There are many contributing factors to this truth. Ultimately, it comes down to epigenetics.

What is Epigenetics?

What is epigenetics? And how can it help you? Epigenetics is the science that studies how our genes interact and respond to our environment and lifestyle choices. It is used to analyze a broad range of chronic diseases that are at an all time high–diseases like Type II diabetes, obesity, heart disease, chronic inflammation, neurocognitive disorders autoimmunity, and more. Epigenetics explores how our nutrition, diet, and lifestyle can reverse or change the expression of those genes associated with chronic illness.

More and more science is realizing the critical connection between our lifestyle choices and our health. One of the most important lifestyle choices is nutrition. You would not put mud into the gas tank of a Ferrari because it would not have the type of chemical energy it needs to run as it should. Why do that to your body then? Moreover, why not put a custom created fuel into the engine specifically designed for that car on that day for that terrain! That is the difference with customized nutrition.

Our bodies are no different than that dream car. We now can use this epigenetic biomarker profile testing to pinpoint which of our genes are being effected and by what lifestyle and nutritive deficits. Utilizing this detailed information, our team creates a personalized regenerative nutrition program specifically tailored to your genes and your epigenetic gene expression to maximize how your Ferrari runs! Additionally, the EBP test flags other lifestyle issues that need to be addressed to maximize your unique body’s health. You can use this information to adjust your lifestyle for your own benefits. Uniquely qualified to assist you, I offer consultations to help you navigate these test results. As therapeutic partners, we would create a personalized plan for you to guarantee success. Incredible results for each person!
