Diet (the way we eat) and eating healthy means different things to each of us, genetically, environmentally, culturally, and biochemically. We all should consume more wholesome foods that are free of additives, preservatives, pesticides, hormones and GMOs. However, for many of us, food is medicine. It is a special fuel that allows us to achieve our best health. For example, to someone undergoing cancer treatment, eating healthy means supporting the immune system and digestive health. For a person with food allergies, it means avoiding certain foods to reduce inflammation and heal. For the traveling business person, healthy eating means choosing healthy foods on the road, and for the tri-athlete, eating dense calories and sufficient protein is mandatory for their superhuman energy demands. Let’s figure out what “eating healthy” means for you and create a custom way of eating to help you reach your goals.
Gay specifically tailored a supplement and nutrition regimen…
Gay Riley began working with my father when his body and health were decimated by aggressive chemotherapy. Gay specifically tailored a supplement and nutrition regimen to allow him to persevere and recover from the successful but physically brutal treatment regimen. I vividly remember how my mother would initially ask his doctor about the supplements Gay was prescribing, and the doctor’s response was typically something to the effect of, “It can’t hurt anything.” Now having fully recovered, the doctor repeatedly asks my father about each of his supplements so that she can pass the information along to her other patients. I have witnessed firsthand the role that a proper nutrition and supplement regimen can play in fighting cancer, and I don’t think anyone knows better how to develop just such a uniquely tailored regimen than Gay Riley. No one should leave it to chance.
38 year old couch potato becomes marathon runner….
I was a 38 year old couch potato. As a counselor and minister I helped people everyday but I did not have any energy to take care of myself. I went to the doctor for a physical and realized I had gained almost 28 pounds, had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I went to see Gay. During our first meeting she asked me if there was any sport that I was interested in or any activity that I really wanted to do. I told her I had always wanted to run a marathon. She said what’s stopping you? We worked on food choices, timing of foods, supplements, training tips hydration, recovery, and then she suggested I join the local marathon clinic. Eight years later I have run almost 17 marathons, not to mention I am down 30 pounds, my cholesterol and blood pressure are optimal, and without medications.
