Do you have a Morning Routine? If you have followed my stories this last week, then you saw I read @robinsharma’s book “The 5AM Club,” and have been started rising at 5am myself.

Now I have to admit, this isn’t a huge change for me as I was getting up at 5:30 daily and have always been a big proponent of a Morning routine. However, I had mostly just been sipping on coffee and working out.

Getting up 30 minutes earlier has guaranteed my “work in” time. Cracking open my journal, reflecting on the good, the bad, gratitude, and making plans for success has made its way back into my morning as well as 5-10 minutes of Meditation or breath work. I cap it off reading something that will help me grow.

The outcome? I feel bulletproof starting my day. I feel incredibly joyful, positive, and hopeful and that carries over into my interactions when the rest of the house wakes up as well the entire rest of my day.

I highly recommend the book. It explains the neuroscience of why implementing these routines in the morning are more effective but it’s also told like a story which makes it quite enjoyable.

If you want to maximize your Morning and your life in every way, then grab the book. Stay tuned here as I share my experience and what I think are the most important steps to nail your morning routine.

“All change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous at the end.”

Happy National ☕️ Day! I never need an excuse to drink coffee but thought it’s a perfect opportunity to tell you how you can score a FREE cup of the best coffee in Dallas!

You all know I love my ☕️ and my local favorite here in #dallas is @ldu.coffee. Most importantly, it’s great tasting organic coffee, but what makes LDU the best is the highest quality service and really cool humans. It’s the kind of place where you walk in and they know your name and your order.

Sunday October 10th, I want to invite you all to join me and my family at the newest location for fellowship and coffee. The first 10 people that come in next Sunday October 10th, between 10:30 and 11:30am get coffee on me. Just let them know you are with Dr. Deme or Whole Hearted Functional Health, and come hang!

What are these puffy black boots you have seen in my stories the last few weeks? @hyperice’s Normatec Recovery boots.

The mechanism is a dynamic, pulsed compression that mimics the muscle pump of leg movements to greatly enhance the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the legs after an intense workout.

You don’t have to be a hard core athlete to benefit. Anyone can benefit from improved circulation. Some other benefits are:

• Enhanced Lymphatic drainage
• removal of lactic acid and other waste metabolites
• improved joint range of motion
• faster recovery
• it feels really damn good 😊

Our pregnant Mommas can also benefit with reducing swelling and varicose veins. 🤰

It especially feels good after an adjustment. Taking time to relax after treatment can allow the body to hold the benefits longer.

Reach out if you want to add a compression therapy session to your next treatment!

Mom took this pic after I adjusted her and the L’il man upstairs in the office. Grandma couldn’t make it up the stairs with her broken foot so we went to her. First parking lot adjustment!

Keep in mind if you are in a cast or even a walking boot, you are putting undue stress on your spine constantly! Go see your Chiropractor for instant relief and to help stop the abnormal patterns that are being created by the cast/boot.

A few weeks ago I got Covid. I debated posting this because everything surrounding this virus is so controversial. However, I also thought hearing a positive experience and some ways I quickly got over it would ease some fears and hopefully benefit others. In no way am I offering Medical advice, just sharing my experience.

My symptoms were mild. So mild that I didn’t think I was sick but merely overtrained. When my HRV on my @ouraring took a 40 point dive, I knew something was up.

I immediately started following the supplement protocol recommended by the @instituteforfxmed. Symptoms progressed to a mild fever, some fatigue, a bit of a sore throat and I lost my smell/taste.
Remember, never suppress a mild fever because that is your immune system fighting for you.

Now I’ve had a plan from day 1. So when my friends @regen_iv_wellness opened up Monday morning I was there ready to give my body everything it needed to get back to normal ASAP. We discussed a lot of options. At Regen they have been successfully treating Covid from the very beginning. When I tested positive I discussed options with the Nurse Practitioner. They have everything from Regeneron to Ivermectin, and no, not the horse kind. I got a high dose vitamin IV with 25 g of Vitamin C to ramp up my Th1, innate immune response. I also got a couple other recommended IV’s and my favorite, Ozone!!!

I woke up the next day completely symptom free except the loss of smell/taste. That took a week. I went back for another ozone treatment and at that point felt like Superwoman!!!

Any time I feel poorly I will be giving myself a boost at Regen.
Who has time to get sick?! I’m a Mom, a business owner, and more than anything, I hate missing workouts and not being able to do my job.

I will say, I gave this virus some respect and took 10 complete days off exercise. I eased back into activity for another week. Although I felt completely fine from day 4. My biggest pain point from Covid was the 4 lb loss of muscle mass 😩 from taking time off.

I am glad I have always made health my number one priority and also grateful for my people at Regen IV! Check them out!

I am so sick of mold. I was literally and now figuratively 😉 So I’m wrapping up the conversation with some important tips you need to know to protect yourself.

There are 2 main ways you can be exposed:

1) Ingestion - Molds and Mycotoxins are high in grains (especially corn, wheat, barley and rye), wine, beer, Nuts (especially peanuts, Brazil nuts, Postachios and Cashews), hard cheeses, chocolate, dried fruit and coffee.

You all know I love my coffee which is why I found @lifeboostcoffee. They are one of only a few coffee companies that actually test for mycotoxins.

2) Inhalation - If you have ever had water damage or leaks you can guarantee a mold problem. However even if you haven’t, it just takes a little moisture for mold to grow on anything except metal. If your house is over 30 years old I would test. Also don’t forget about your work environment.

So the most important step to take is to stop or remove yourself from the exposure.

My 2 recommendations are to have an environmental testing done. You want to have the air tested (because the molds release spores into the air) and dust. I recommend calling a local mold testing company and/or ordering an ERMI test. This Environmental Mold Index test will test for 36 different species.

In my opinion, fix it, or move. Go back to my last post if you forgot how badly Mold can wreck your health.

Aside from home remediation, find someone who can help you safely detox and not crash your immune system doing it. Every case is individualized and not simply take this supplement for Mold.

Lastly, I highly recommend a couple @airdoctorpro air filters in the house.

I’m done talking about mold friends. I’m ready to get back to things like maximizing Mitochondria fortitude next PR!

So what’s the big deal with this fungi? He really isn’t that fun and he is causing more problems than just spoiling your bread and berries.

Mold, and it’s secondary metabolite, Mycotoxins, can be very harmful to humans. Most organisms can release these secondary metabolites to help them in their survival, but they often hurt us. These Mycotoxins induce toxicity in humans by:

• binding to DNA and RNA in the cell
• alter protein synthesis
• induce oxidative stress
• deplete antioxidants
• alter cell membrane function
• damage Mitochondria
• alter apoptosis

If all that is Greek to you, that list above can lead to…
• Major Immune System suppression
• Cancer
• kidney, liver and Brain toxicity
• Autism in Children
• Depression
• Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, ALS, Loy Gehrig’s Disease
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and more!

So we aren’t just talking about an aesthetic skin rash any longer we are talking about compromised health.

This is a rant for another post but one of the most annoying statements I hear is when someone tells me, “so and so got sick and they are so healthy.” But are they really? How do you know?

The most important aspect of healing from Mold toxicity is finding the main source and eliminating it. We will talk about reducing your routes of exposure, mold remediation, and then how to eradicate these stubborn organisms from your body.

Stay curious.

My skin rash was being driven by Mold. Mold is also in the same family as Candida and it was what was increasing the yeast overgrowth.

Go back and look at my pics. I looked like a moldy piece of 🧀!!! I used to joke I was one moldy MF’er! I was! I’ve attached my test results in the pic.

Here is the deal. I never lived in a home with visible mold or visible water damage so I didn’t think of it as a risk factor. I did live in old homes. I did find out I went to an Elementary school that was eventually torn down in part because of mold problems.

My body was battling this mold my whole life. My body also has a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) on the HLA-DR gene which makes me sensitive to inflammation from toxic agents like Mold. We tested my husband, whom I have lived with for the last 13 years, and he did NOT have any mold overgrowth.

Starting to see how individualized this gets?

In the following posts I’m going to talk about why this Mold issue is WAY more of a problem than just clearing up a skin rash. I’m also going to share the important steps I took to rebalance my system.

Lastly, I do believe the heavy metals, the contraceptives, stress, and more, were all playing a role. We live in a very toxic world. Our basics of air and water are no longer clean. It doesn’t matter if it’s Tinea Versicolor or cancer, these toxins destroy your health. Making steps to reduce your load where you can is essential to building your resilience and health.
