Memorable Quotes:

“These are things that anybody can do today to help with their overall health and wellbeing.” 

“Focus on those foundations of health.” 

“I like to call it the SEEDS of health. S for stress, E for environment and toxins. Other E for Exercise, D for diet, and final S would be sleep.” 

“Sometimes it can be overwhelming, and that’s where I think it’s important to start by remembering that there are some things we have some control over, and there are some things that we don’t have a ton of control over.”

“There are toxins in the water. There are toxins in our food.”

“When speaking about this to families, it’s really important to focus on those things where you do actually have some control.”

“Every decision I make, I put some thought into it…what am I exposing my children to? Every little bit makes a difference.”

“50% of kids or so have a chronic disease. At this point, 70% of adults do. Most are on medication.”

”There’s no logical reason not to think about prevention, and there’s no logical reason to not think about the root cause of illness. But it’s difficult in modern medicine because of the way the system is set up.”

”The system is not going to fix the problem.”
