Do you start to make healthy changes and then get stuck?
Or perhaps you don’t even know where to begin? For so many, feeling unwell or unhealthy preoccupies their thoughts, choices and ultimately their body. It may be a feeling that you have come to expect each day. Maybe you wake up each morning wishing that once and for all you could lose that persistent "10-20 lbs"? Most folks generally know that their food and other lifestyle choices affect how they feel day in and day out.

Not only will you feel better, but you can also significantly lower your risk for many chronic diseases, even cancers by changing up a few things –and learning which food choices and lifestyle changes matter the most for you.

Here is a little bit about me… and my love of food, health and exercise. I knew early on that I wanted a career in healthcare, somewhere, helping people make sense of the volumes of medical and health information now at our fingertips.
Digestive health matters to the rest of your body too. Meet your gut microbiome and DayTwo.
Your gut microbiome and digestive health is key to overall health and can be the red flag that links to other health problems. Inflammation is a necessary defense response that our body uses to survive against any number of factors, including: physical injury, stress, toxins, poor diet etc. Chronic inflammation, however, leads to chronic illness including an increased cancer risk. Our GI tract, fat cells and vessels are all potential sites of inflammation. Refined foods, medications, stress and a sedentary lifestyle all can contribute to a disrupted gut flora and digestive troubles.
Carbohydrates and You and DayTwo
Determining the amount and type of carbohydrate and fiber that best suits your heart, metabolism and GI tract can ultimately be of tremendous value to all systems in your body. Cindy is excited to have available to you the Daytwo app, whose compelling research may well change the standard of care in medicine. DayTwo analyzes your gut microbiome and can determine which foods will best manage your blood glucose by matching your bacterial profile. The Israeli landmark study findings has gained support from The Mayo Clinic. Click here to learn more and how to order DayTwo using Cindy's code NTFY.
Of note, a number of companies have the DNA/PCR techology to analyze your stool and provide GI microbiome mapping- of sorts. This is a positive trend in medicine and healthcare. What's best what to do with this information for any one individual is what's still murky. DayTwo is the first GI mapping that matches bacteria with an individual biomarker--blood sugar. Stay tuned, --the study of your gut microbiome and how it modulates inflammation and health throughout the body is here to stay and plays a role in each and every one of us.
