Staying Healthy Even When Shelves are Empty
On Friday, I sent you action steps to put yourself in the best position during this current global health crisis. I have added to these!
Sadly, things have escalated since Friday, and I think it’s time to take our preparation to the next level -- especially if you are in any way immunocompromised, or have close contact with anyone who is.
I’m not one to get overly alarmed by situations like this, but I’m concerned.
Please visit this special section on my homepage to hear a second recording I did of a firsthand discussion I had with my good friend Mike, who asked me for Round 2 of advice. He asked some really great questions.
Please read on for some critical advice...
Let me start by saying please, don’t panic. But do prepare!
I’m concerned about my family, my friends, my team and my FMD community. I’m stocking up at home, I’ve sent care packages out to people close to me, and this is starting to hit too close to home.
As the world continues to suffer consequences of the spread of this virus with subsequent stock market declines, shutdowns, deficits in our food supply chain and price gouging, it’s imperative to do everything we can to put our bodies in a position of defense against exposure.
Panic buying isn’t mindful, and as a result, you may notice the store shelves are wiped clean of cereals, chips, pastas and other bulk products. But those kinds of carbs won’t feed and strengthen your immune system, and SUGAR INHIBITS IMMUNE FUNCTION. Stress isn’t helpful either in this situation, as it depletes the adrenal glands which can run down your immune system even more and drive inflammatory hormones to dangerous levels.
Whether you are immunocompromised or not (but particularly if you are, or will be around those who are), be mindful of your nutrition. As much as possible, shop to feed your body’s cells… not your fear. Eating the wrong things can and will have a drastic impact on your health.
Continued effects will likely result in even more difficulty stocking our refrigerators and pantries with everything on our preferred food lists. Do your best to opt for fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables — organic whenever possible.
Having said that, things are likely to get worse before they get better, so it’s time to turn to supplementation to fill in the gaps and give our cells the ability to handle any exposure, as well as the stress.
Because of this, I’ve made the decision to cut the prices on my products effective immediately, while supplies last. I consider it my duty and obligation to make sure I don’t leave any of you without the protection you need to ride this thing out.
For starters, my Phase 3 shakes are now 50% off for anyone immune-compromised. (Honor system, please.) This is one way to provide your body with everything it needs to feed critical hormones that regulate things like blood sugar, immunity, keep inflammation under control and wash receptor sites for the proper hormone delivery. We don’t have a lot left, so hurry.
Visit this page for a listing of all the other products I’m making available to you for 25% off while current inventory lasts. Please don’t wait. If we sell out of something you wanted, know that taking any product is better than taking none, so get what you can, while you can.
Now is the time to do what you can to ward off exposure and help your body deal with the stress of this crisis. Your risk has less to do with your actual age than your age and condition of your insides, so it’s crucial to do all you can to pump up your defenses.
My team is placing orders to replenish my stock as we speak, but honestly fulfilling orders like mine take time. And time is a luxury we don’t have right now.
To be clear, I have refused offers for my products to be replenished more quickly using inferior ingredients. I just won’t do it. Quality is not something I am willing to compromise. My personal health and that of my family, friends and community depend on this.
While we may feel like we need to just eat whatever we can right now to sustain life, it’s best to not rely on pasta and potato chips. Giving you the quality nutrition you need right now is one way I can give back to a Community that has become so much to me. Please take care of yourself and your loved ones and get what you need now. Supply is dwindling by the hour.
My advice to you beyond supplementing RIGHT NOW is to get some cardio to stimulate oxygen delivery to your cells, chew your food carefully to maximize your creation of critical enzymes for proper digestion of nutrients and avoid refined sugars and carbs at all cost.
In good health, now more than ever—
