Go Here First
Dr. Josh recommends four things:
1. Toxin testing– Many of us may have had exposure to toxins such as petrochemicals, plastics, mold or round-up (glyphosate). You may not know your toxicity level. Once you find out, you can take action to address any problems sooner rather than later. The key is PREVENTION. Click here for more information about the toxin test with Dr Josh. See his toxin supplement recommendations by clicking the above link.
Dr. Josh believes strongly in the power of diet and lifestyle to improve health and help with toxin overload. That being said, there are TWO supplements that he suggests trying: Cardio Miracle and in some circumstances, UltraInflamx Plus 360. Try 4 single serving packets (or 4 scoops) of Cardio Miracle and 2 scoops of UltraInflamx daily for two weeks and let us know how you feel! We think you will immediately notice the difference.
2. Click here to learn more about Cardio Miracle. This product even at a maintenance dose of 2 scoops per day may help to raise your vitamin D level, (anecdotally he’s seen patients and his vitamin D level double after ten months). It is also excellent because we produce less nitric oxide as we get older, so the nitric oxide is helpful for overall wellness, as is the product for helping maintain healthy zinc and B12 levels. We personally know the manufacturer and stand behind the ethical standards used in the ingredients.
3. Click here to learn more about the Metagenics UltraInflamx Plus 360. This product may help if there are gut issues or for other general use. It can be used as a meal replacement for anyone or specifically for weight loss. It can help with nausea or digestive problems and 4 scoops daily may help with pain.*
(Cardio Miracle may also help with pain. Pain comments come from Heidi who deals with back pain from a congenital issue. If you have pain, consider doing a phone consult with HeidiCrockett at gmail dot com, for more specific suggestions.)
LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST!!!
4. Going whole-food, plant-based with no added fat (oil) known as WFPBNO to reduce toxin exposure moving forward and your chances of developing heart disease. You can download this 2017 research article with 196 citations for yourself: bit.ly/GeriatricPBN-pdf
And if you are into education, consider printing it out and bringing to your next physician office visit and leaving it with your doctor or in the waiting room. A comprehensive (and entertaining) book on the science behind WFPBNO is the NY Times bestseller, “How Not to Die,” with over 2,500 citations.

As part of making the WFPBNO diet change, Dr. Josh would like you to consider trying PROLON FMD, which is a 5-day pre-prepared meal plan, approximately 800 calories per day, and try one 5-day box each month for three months, see potential results below per one study.

Slide from his “Toxins and Weight Loss” lecture:
ProLon is clinically proven to help people lose an average of 5 lbs. of fat and 1.2 inches of waist circumference, while preserving lean body mass (muscle and bone).**Science Translational Medicine – February 2017
