Don’t let this green company fool you, they out perform the brand leaders in removing the harmful bacteria while keeping your skin and lungs safe from toxic ingredients.

There natural laundry detergent prevents skin irritation and keeps the harmful toxins from getting into our system.
- Grass Fed Meat- This is a website that shows you were you can get grass fed meat products. This is really important in keeping unwanted antibiotics and hormones out of your body.

- Nordic Naturals- I recommend Nordic Naturals for their omega 3 products, as well as their children “Nordic Berries” I have recommended their Vitamin C products for children. Their products are very pure and potent and can be found at Whole Foods. Most companies don’t have formulas with as much DHA. This company offers a variety of different combinations as well.
- Douglas Labs– Vitamin D Liquid is a great product they offer that has high dose in a convenient dropper form. I also think they have a great product for mitochondrial health called mito-tome. If you are looking to spend a bit more money, I would recommend their longevity pack. This has all the necessary vitamins, herbs, and enzymes needed to keep your cells and body healthy from oxidative stress (aging).
- Ortho-Molecular– They have a great supplement line especially their pediatric supplements. I highly recommend immune-max, natrinix.
Sleep / Emotional Stress Reduction
Emotional stress includes all aspects of your thoughts and emotions. The reduction of emotional stress is reducing chronic tension and anxiety. Good sleep and meditation are imperative to keeping the body thinking and feeling great.

Headspace is an app that gives you a tutorial of exactly what to do and think while taking time to meditate. This will dramatically help with anger issues as well as create a more well balanced lifestyle.
Sleep Cycle– Sleep cycle is an amazing app that uses your phones accelerometer to determine what stage of sleep you are in. This gives you valid information to see how different foods and alcohol affect your sleep habits. The best feature of the app is that you can set a range of what time you need to wake up and it picks the time your body is in it’s lightest stage of sleep. This means that you wake up feeling great, not groggy and tired.
