Our March 2020 Specials
In March we are focusing on gut health, because as Hippocrates said, "All disease begins in the gut". Your digestive system is constantly under attack and some days it probably feels like balance is impossible to achieve. But we know that there’s more at stake than digestive issues alone, as poor gut health can be the root cause of many other health issues throughout the body.
You brain might be the control center of the body, but the gut is the engine and without proper management, your engine might be the culprit behind your body’s poor performance. Through nutritional changes, and proper supplementation, it’s possible to reverse and repair the damage that’s been done to your gut over the years.

The discovery that the gut barrier plays a key role in immune health fueled the search to strengthen it. In that search, researchers found that the binding capabilities of immunoglobulins have a positive effect on gut barrier function. Immunoglobulins bind microbes and toxins in the GI tract and eliminate them prior to immune system activation. As these unwanted triggers are removed, it resets healthy immune tolerance and builds a stronger barrier to the external environment.
The GI tract is a finely balanced environment where roughly 500 different strains of bacteria compete for space and nutrients. When there is a healthy balance (eubiosis), few symptoms exist. However, dysbiosis can occur when an overabundance of potentially harmful organisms prevail. The natural microflora balance can be upset by medications (such as antibiotics, oral contraceptives, etc.), excessive alcohol consumption, or poor dietary intake.
Because probiotics are live organisms, there are many challenges associated with manufacturing and distributing probiotic supplements. For a probiotic to be effective, it must be shelf-stable through the expiration date and precisely delivered to the intestinal tract, where it can have maximum benefit. The microorganisms in Ortho Biotic are protected, sealed and freeze dried away from moisture, heat, light and oxygen.
This allows the bacteria to remain dormant until they are exposed to moisture in the GI tract. Ortho Biotic is a unique probiotic formula designed to deliver active organisms shown to promote healthy gut flora, protect intestinal integrity and boost immune function. Included in this formula is Saccharomyces boulardii, an extensively researched microorganism shown to help restore microflora balance by enhancing commensal organisms.
Each scoop of Ortho Biotic provides seven proven probiotic strains chosen for their ability to withstand the harsh gastrointestinal (GI) environment and adhere to the intestinal tract, and deliver superior results. Ortho Biotic is also available in capsules at the same high concentration for those who prefer capsule delivery.
Symptoms of indigestion are often mistaken for excessive gastric acid. This leads many to take acid blockers in attempt to lower stomach acid, when the true culprit is likely to be insufficient levels of hydrochloric acid (HCl). Betaine & Pepsin provides two essential components of healthy digestion: HCl and the digestive enzyme, pepsin. HCl is vital for the proper digestion of protein and the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Pepsin is one of the first enzymes to initiate protein digestion and works in synergy with HCl to provide complete protein digestive support.
Because of our hectic lifestyle, and the way we often consume food that is frequently overcooked, digestion can often be less than optimal. A thorough digestion of foodstuffs with enzymes prevents foods from being fermented in the gut and the proliferation of “bad” bacteria and yeast at the expense of “good” intestinal bacteria.
Another benefit of enzymes is that more nutrition can be derived from food. In addition, regular bowel movements result from this better digestion. Digestzyme-V is specifically designed to support digestion and help unlock more nutrition from food.
Digestzyme-V is a comprehensive blend of acid-resistant, plant-based enzymes designed to help maximize the digestion and absorption of nutrients from food. Each capsule includes lipase, amylase, lactase, CereCalase® and protease to aid in the digestion of protein, fat, starches, fiber and other difficult to digest foods known to cause food sensitivities.
CereCalase®, a special blend of hemicellulase, beta-glucanase and phytase, is specially formulated to digest the cell walls of plants, providing better nutrition from a plant-based diet. Digestzyme-V also includes Gentian root, a traditional bitter herb, and artichoke, a natural choleretic, added to stimulate the body’s natural production of enzymes and bile.
Hectic lifestyles and overcooked food can make digestion less than optimal. Poor digestion can produce bloating and gas, cramping, diarrhea or constipation, and even food intolerances. Incomplete digestion of food proteins may also be linked to food allergies, and improper digestion of foodstuffs can cause foods to be fermented in the gut, and can lead to the proliferation of “bad” bacteria and yeast at the expense of “good” intestinal bacteria.
More complete digestion removes a potential food source for these bad bacteria, allowing for the complete breakdown of food proteins which helps support regular bowel movements.
Ortho Digestzyme is a full-spectrum enzyme strategically designed to support each phase of digestion. In the gastric phase, betaine HCl and pepsin prime the stomach, ensuring proper pH to initiate the first phase of digestion.
This sets up for the second stage of digestion, the enteric phase, in which high-concentration protease, amylase, lipase, and trypsin are released and activated in the small intestine to ensure proper protein breakdown and fat absorption. This unique blend of high-powered enzymes works to enhance digestion and ensure maximum nutrient intake.
This special blend of vitamins and amino acids gives you that boost of energy you need. The L-Carnitine in this lipotropic plays an important role in the metabolism of fat. It burns fatty acids, or triglycerides, as fuel. This special formula also contains Chromium which has many positive effects. It stimulates muscle growth and reduces the body’s fat stores while conserving lean muscle mass. Chromium also improves insulin efficiency, glucose and fat metabolism and reduces appetite. The fat melting effect of Chromium, the energy surge and the metabolism support from the amino acids produces extreme weight loss results and is an effective metabolism booster in Springfield Missouri.
For the month of March, we will be running Lipo Extreme for $79 for a series of 5 injections.
Note that these Lipotropic injections are only available for established patients. Limit of two series per customer for the entire special month.
