In this episode, Dr. Doni Wilson, host of How Humans Heal, describes what it takes to find the highest quality and most efficacious supplements. Dr. Doni breaks through the sales and marketing to show you behind the scenes of DoctorDoni.com and Nature Empowered Nutritionals.  

 

Ultimately, it’s about giving your body the nutrients, herbs and other support from nature to help you recover from depletions and disruptions caused by stress.  

 

We are stressed as humans. Stress decreases our ability to digest food, causes leaky gut and imbalanced gut bacteria. It also makes us susceptible to infections, including viral infections, as well as low serotonin and GABA. These can be addressed clinically with nutrients, herbs, homeopathic remedies and peptides. Hormone imbalances can also be addressed.  

 

 

It is essential to use high quality supplements at effective doses. This is not something you have to figure out on your own. That would require hours and hours (years even) of research and trials. And they are not supplements you will find at the regular store. 

 

That’s why I do what I do. Using my training, with a doctorate degree from Bastyr University, which is not a weekend course or online training. It was a 5-year, post-graduate, in-person degree program and residency which I completed 22 years ago.   

 

Nor should you need to figure out what to take together or apart, or potential interactions. That’s all part of my training and continuing education. It’s also what I teach naturopathic students who train with me.  

 

In my case, I’ve chosen to run an online store where I can make these high-quality supplements available to you and my patients. I don’t want my suggestions or your access to be limited to certain companies determined by a distributor. I want to make it possible for you to get the products that are most effective clinically. I also want to make sure you know you can access those supplements from a trusted source. To do that, I have to research and maintain a store for you to use.  

 

-

 

The store here on my site (DoctorDoni.com) was recently updated to make it easier for you to use and to find what you need. We carry over 700 products from companies I have vetted and products I’ve tested on myself and used clinically: https://doctordoni.com/dr-donis-nature-empowered-store/

 

I also decided to create my own supplement company – Nature Empowered Nutritionals – so that I can offer you the supplements I recommend based on my Stress Recovery Protocol. Other practitioners who create a supplement choose based on what is easiest to formulate. I chose based on wanting you to have exactly the ingredients that I find to be most effective.  

 

I know it can seem too good to be true. When we are dealing with chronic illness and feeling lost in the medical system, it can be hard to believe that solutions exist. And I’m not saying this is the right fit for everyone. It is always important to know your body, your preferences, your allergies and sensitivities, and your medical history. 

 

 

I absolutely believe customizing your supplement protocol based on your individual case is imperative. That’s why I offer group online programs and one-on-one consultations with me so that you can get access to the information you need, and testing to understand the imbalances in your body, so that you can pinpoint exactly what your body needs.  

 

It is not about taking a bunch of random supplements. It is about understanding human physiology, biochemistry, clinical nutrition, herbalism, homeopathy, and research about how to support the body to heal.  

 

For example, if you have elevated cortisol levels, there are specific nutrients and herbs to help bring it back down to optimal. If you have low serotonin (which we can also measure), then we know 5HTP, as a precursor nutrient, will give your body what it needs to make more. How much and when to take it, and what if you are on medications? Then you need to meet with me one-on-one so I can guide you.  

 

 

I feel it is my role and purpose to provide information about the protocol I’ve identified in the process of healing by body and helping thousands of patients. That’s what my team helps me to create at DoctorDoni.com where we have lots of free resources in addition to learning opportunities and access to the highest quality and effective supplements.  

 

Thank you so much for your feedback, questions, and trust.  

 

Dr. Doni

Fatigue is not the same for everyone who experiences it. It can be a complex web of causes which requires a systematic approach in order to avoid aggravations. 

 

In this episode of How Humans Heal, I discuss helping patients recover from fatigue with Dr. Evan Hirsch, [@EvanHirschMD] a functional medical doctor who experienced Chronic Fatigue himself.  

 

He pushed aside the shame and guilt of not feeling well enough to keep up with his life and practice to identify 33 causes of fatigue. His mission became addressing those 33 causes of fatigue for himself and now thousands of other people in his online program.  

 

95% of people he sees have thyroid function that is not optimized. And most of them have adrenal dysfunction. And I agree – I see those same patterns in my practice.  

 

It’s important to address all the causes of fatigue, not just one or two, in order to achieve complete resolution. We also want to address the root, of the root, of the root, of the cause of fatigue.   

 

When we dig deeper, we find that stress, toxin exposure, and chronic infections need to be addressed to ultimately resolve fatigue.   

 

 

As Dr. Evan explains, it often comes down to deficiencies and toxicities. Deficiencies such as nutrients, neurotransmitters, mitochondrial function and lack of good food, sleep, and movement. Toxicities such as the 500 chemicals we are exposed to before we walk out of the house. It can also be mold toxicity, tick-born infections, viruses, parasites, yeast, bacterial infections, allergens, adverse life events, negative experiences, and electromagnetic exposures.  

 

The body ends up shutting down in what is called the Cell Danger Response. Which is why it can feel like a pile-up of health issues and multiplying symptoms.  

 

Dr. Evan has figured out a 4-step process to assess and address the underlying causes of fatigue in a way that allows the body to heal most efficiently.  

 

It doesn’t start with detoxification. It’s important to prepare the body and carefully open the detoxification pathways so that we don’t make you feel worse in the process of addressing infections and toxins.  

 

 

At the same time, it’s important to know that healing is a process of taking a few steps forward and a couple steps backwards, individualizing along the way, as we learn what your body needs in order to heal.  

 

As practitioners, we are really “course correctors” along the way, to guide you to know how to pivot and work through what comes up as you rebalance and heal.  

 

Regaining your energy is absolutely possible, and it is important to keep in mind that it will be gradual over 12 to 24 months. You have to play the long game.  

 

As someone who has experienced and recovered from fatigue myself, and helped thousands of patients with stress, toxins, and infections, as discussed in this episode, I can tell you that Dr. Evan’s approach makes complete sense and is extremely thorough.  

 

 

If you’ve been struggling with fatigue and/or a complex health issue, I highly recommend reading his book, which he is offering as a free gift, and checking out his online program.

Is it really that important to have optimal cortisol?  

 

Even if your blood work says your cortisol is in the “normal” range?  

 

And even though you don’t have Addison’s disease or Cushing Syndrome?  

 

Yes! I would say a resounding yes based on all the research I’ve read and thousands of patients I’ve helped.  

 

Having optimal cortisol, as well as adrenaline, levels means…  

 

- You’re sending healthy signals throughout your body, instead of stress signals 

 

- You’re decreasing your risk of (over) 90% of health issues 

 

- You’re reversing digestive, immune, hormone and nervous system issues 

 

- You’re shifting your gene expression 

 

- You’re increasing your longevity (years of quality life) 

 

- You’re decreasing emotional and physical pain 

 

- You’re healing from past stress and trauma 

 

Who doesn’t want that?  

 

-

 

And yet, it is NOT what you’ll hear at the standard doctor’s appointment. Not even at an appointment with a functional practitioner, because it is not how they are trained to think or what they are trained to guide you to achieve.  

 

That is why I wrote the book Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health.  

 

It’s why I created the free online Stress Type™ Quiz to know where your cortisol level likely is at this point in time – either a bit too high or too low. https://doctordoni.com/quiz/stress-quiz/  

 

The 7-day SelfC.A.R.E. Stress Reset to guide you to understand how stress is affecting you and the essential initial steps to reset your cortisol (and adrenaline) to optimal. https://drdoni.lpages.co/the-7-day-self-care-reset/  

 

As well as the 21-day Stress Remedy Program to help you recover from stress by healing leaky gut and balancing blood sugar levels. https://doctordoni.com/product/the-stress-remedy-21-day-program/  

 

And the Stress Warrior Program – a 10-week group and one-on-one experiential program to guide you to implement my Stress Recovery Protocol and optimize your cortisol and adrenaline. https://drdoni.lpages.co/stress-program/ 

 

I wish that…  

 

This approach was the standard of care 

 

That you could order a quick home test to measure your cortisol and adrenaline 

 

That all practitioners understand the use of nutrients and herbs to optimize cortisol and adrenaline 

 

But that simply isn’t the case at this point in time.  

 

So, we are left to pay out of pocket, work with a practitioner (like me) to help you order a urine/saliva test to measure your cortisol and adrenaline, and wait 2 weeks for the results, then work with me – either one-on-one or in a “do it yourself” program (listed above) to help you to optimize your cortisol.  

 

That is currently your best option for getting your cortisol and adrenaline to optimal and resetting your health trajectory.

Dr. Sue McCreadie [@drsuemccreadie], a pediatric physician who has shifted into helping women breakthrough their health challenges, is hosting a summit called “Mama, Own Your Health” starting June 13, 2022.  

 

I’m honored to be a part of the Mama, Own Your Health Summit, and to share insights from the summit and from Dr. Sue’s life and career in this episode of How Humans Heal.  

 

 

Originally trained as a medical doctor, Dr. Sue started learning about alternative, or what is now known as functional, medicine when she was in medical school. Ever since, she has been learning and providing support for patients in ways they weren’t receiving support otherwise.  

 

Meanwhile, in her own life, she struggled through multiple pregnancy losses and trying to keep up as a mom and doctor. That is until one day, her daughter inspired her to think outside the box and realize that women need her help to recover from stress, grief and trauma.  

 

 

As Dr. Sue says, stress affects us not just on a physical level, but also an emotional and spiritual level. And it leads to so many health issues, including fatigue, burnout, hormone and digestive issues, weight gain, and more. 

 

Once she realized that her personal experience recovering from health challenges in her own life could help other women too, she decided to create the Mama, Own Your Health Summit, to share valuable information from herself and other practitioners.  

 

 

If you’ve been hoping to find and needing inspiration and encouragement to change your life and health, this may be the perfect place to start (or continue).  

 

Sign up for the summit here: https://bit.ly/NSowsS 

 

Often it is what we decide when pushed to our limit. And it all starts with a decision to simply jump in and start somewhere.  

 

Most importantly, it is by loving, forgiving and accepting ourselves and our experiences in life, that makes transformation possible.
