Why do I wake up around 3:00 a.m., is a frequently asked question.

The answer is a congested liver and kidneys along with a vitamin B deficiency.

If you are suffering from liver, kidneys and vitamin B problems your body will go into a slight crisis around 3:00 a.m.  This will cause:

  • a blood sugar drop
  • or a signal of stress sent to the adrenal glands
  • or a reflex in the kidneys causing an urge to urinate.

Any of the three will cause a disturbance in sleep.  The three am wake up call is more than just an inconvenience, it is your body's way of alerting you that a more serious problem could be  developing.  Just remember it is easy for cancer to develop when the liver and kidneys can no longer filter and remove toxins.

Sleeping pills or other drugs are not the answer:

  • drugs will mask the problems however, the underlying disorders continue to develop
  • high doses of synthetic Vitamin B will produce an adrenal rush of energy and should not be used
  • using synthetic Vitamin B will eventually leave your system depleted of nutrients and will create more toxic waste for the all-ready-over-loaded kidneys and liver.

For Vitamin B deficiencies it is better to use a whole food or high quality supplement such as Standard Process, Cataplex B or Xymogen, B-Active, along with a diet high in B's.  Include: brown rice, fresh water fish, legumes, raw nuts, raw sunflower seeds, whole grains, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, leafy green vegetables, red potatoes, carrots, sea vegetables (dulse / kelp), oatmeal, dried or fresh plums, prunes and organic raisins.

A three day cleanse is a good start to help reduce toxins. After the cleanse a specifically designed nutritional program can help rebuild and nourish the eliminating organs.

Once the kidneys and liver are functioning properly say goodnight to your 3 a.m. wake-up call.

Over the years we have been told which foods and vitamins are good for us and which are bad, we are now discovering how much we have been lied to and tricked into moving to genetically engineered foods and synthetic vitamins.

Even if we are conscious shoppers, product labels are tricky and hard to decipher.
In today's world of internet marking we are flooded with “new and improved” vitamins, nutritional claims and suggestions for our health.  As a result we usually end up with a self-diagnosis and a purchase of many vitamins that don't make us feel any healthier.

Each of us are unique and have individual health needs, therefore the correct nutrients are critical. We are all made of cells, bone and muscle and for that reason need the same nutrients to run a human body. However, the key is finding the correct nutrient, delivery system and nutritional amount needed. It is this very combination that require different types and amounts of nutrients for each individual.

This brings us to products. Through years of education and practice I consider myself well versed with two companies and their products. StandardProcess and Xymogen. These products contain excellent and wholesome nutrients and when the combination is correct, good results are achieved for each person.

As a nation we need help keeping ourselves healthy, this blog page will help guide you in a better direction to understand:

  • how supplements really affect the body?
  • do supplements tax the liver, bowel and kidneys?
  • are all the supplements I take really helping me?
  • why synthetic vitamins are not good for me?
  • should I take the same vitamins month after month?
  • are fish oils really beneficial?
  • is my body processing these vitamins?
  • can my digestive system and kidneys deliver the nutrients?
  • are my cells receiving nutrients?

I look forward to receiving your comments or questions on this blog and all future blogs.
