New Year New You? Dr. Turner ND’s 120 Days for a Total Body Oil Change
By Dr. Natasha Turner ND
I bet you didn’t think about this as an
essential component of your New Year transformation but every single membrane
in your body is made up of fats! This means your intake of dietary fat and
omega 3 fatty acid supplements impacts all of your organs, your brain and
communication between cells, your muscles your bones and your skin. So clearly
this means you need to consume good fats (and rid all of the bad from your
diet) for optimal health and wellness.
Why do this tune up? Learn more more
surprising facts about fats and your need for a total body oil change below:
- Your brain is over 65% fat so
the right fats impact brain health and memory. They have also been proven to
treat and prevent anxiety and depression. Alzheimer’s disease risk has a
positive relationship with a good intake of omega-3’s. The right fats also
assist the symptoms of ADHD in children and adults.
- Fats are needed for the
production of hormones estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and cortisol, which
impacts your hormonal health, bone health, fertility, aging, libido and more.
- Fats protect your muscle mass
(in fact, chemotherapy patients that consume omega-3 oils preserver more muscle
during and after treatment).
- The right fats reduce belly fat
and improve insulin sensitivity (which basically impacts your ability to
metabolize carbohydrates like starchy vegetables, grains, legumes, sugars and
fruit). This equates to a reduced risk of metabolic syndrome.
- The right fats reduce harmful
cholesterol and raise good cholesterol, reducing your risk of stroke and heart
- The right fats reduce
inflammation the harmful fats turn your body into a hotbed of inflammatory risk
and they also assist in the treatment and prevention of autoimmune disease.
- They are essential for healthy
- Fats protect your eyes and
reduce the problematic symptoms of dry eyes.
- Omega-3’s reduce cancer risk,
particularly breast, colon and prostate cancers.
- Who doesn’t need better sleep?
Take your omega’s at bedtime, they are shown to help melatonin production and
improve sleep in children and adults.
- Your skin will love you for
your fats. Omega-3’s reduce dryness, aging, acne, eczema, psoriasis and those
pesky persistent bumps on the upper arm area (folliculitis).
From a dietary perspective these are your
best fat options and the only fats I recommend. Consume one to four servings
per day based on your activity level:
- Olive oil –– 1 tbsp daily
- Avocado – ¼
- Mayonnaise – avocado or olive oil based – 1 tsp
- Olives – 5 to 6
- Butter (grass fed preferably) ½ tsp
- Omega 3 egg yolks – 2 for women, 3 for men
- Organic coconut butter/oil – 1 tbsp
- Salad dressings made with canola or olive oil – 1 tbsp
- Walnuts – 8 to 16
- Cashews – 6 to 12
- Almonds – 10 to 24
- Seeds – pumpkin, sunflower, sesame – 2 tbsp
- Pistachios – 25 to 50
- Pumpkin Seeds – 2 to 3 tbsp
- Nut butter, preferably almond butter or pumpkin seed – 1 tbsp
- Hemp hearts – 2 tbsp
- PC Organic olive oil spray
- Spectrum Coconut Oil spray
And from a supplement to ensure adequate
essential fatty acid intake, I suggest adding a fatty acid supplement to
your daily intake for a minimum of the next 120 days. It takes this long to
produce all new red blood cells in your body and along the walls of your
digestive tract. It also takes nine to twelve weeks to form new neurons in your
brain. So, a proper oil change takes time.
- For women over 40 or those on a
plant-based diet, I recommend Pure
Form Omega at four capsules per day and,
- For all other people I
recommend the highly potent and absorbable marine based omega, which also does
not have any fishy aftertaste or repeat, Marine-Based Omega 3’s
new concentrated formula at two capsules per day.
Really want proof of how this is going to
work for you? Through our exclusive relationship with Dynacare we can offer
specific tests that you can complete at the start of your 120 days and at the
end to have blood results to show the improvement in your cardiovascular
health, insulin balance and inflammatory factors.
Clear Medicine Exclusive Oil-Change
Order four bottles of either omega (the right amount for 120 days in both the plant and marine form) and you will receive a free bottle of Green Tea and Moringa. The perfect addition to your New Year plan too since it lowers inflammation, balances blood sugar, cuts cravings and hunger and aids fat loss. Both Moringa and Green Tea are potent antioxidants that also benefit cellular health.
