We had yet another great turn out for Antioxidant Testing.
We even had one client score 50,000! Way to go!
Holding up my end of the deal, I paid for her antioxidant test. As promised, I will continue to honor my commitment to pay for anyone’s test who scores 50,000 or higher.
This month’s average antioxidant test score was 32,000. Again, this number is above average. Unfortunately, it is still far below recommended antioxidant score of 50,000 or higher.
One of my clients this month asked me if age was a determining factor for antioxidant scores. The simple answer is no. I was happy to share with this client that their age has zero impact on their antioxidant levels.
Just to prove my point, I compared the average adults and children who tested with us this month. We scanned 6 children, whose ages ranged from 2 years old to 16 years old. The overall client score was 32,000, the average adult score was 33,000 and the average children’s score was 29,000, which is 3,000 lower than the adults score. I believe this not only reconfirms that age is not a factor, but it also shows what I have been afraid of, revealing that children may have the lowest antioxidant levels due to the amount of processed foods they are consuming. So for all of my clients with children, I would suggest you bring them in to get tested.
I was happy to see such a great turn out this month, and I applaud my clients for taking steps towards a healthier, happier life. Want to gain more control over your health?
Join us at our next antioxidant testing clinics. Reserve your spot at our next antioxidant testing, call our office at (970) 449-9757.
We had yet another great weekend of antioxidant testing. This months average antioxidant score of 31,000 was down from last months score of 37,000. The lowest score was 15,000. The highest score this month was 52,000, which happened to be my score. Each month I will be rescanning my antioxidant scores, as I continue working towards my personal goal of 60,000.
Everyone who tests their antioxidant scores, should be striving to reach a level of 50,000 or higher. 50,000 is considered the minimum level for optimal antioxidant health. As I have mentioned before, if you score 50,000 or higher I will pay for your antioxidant test. In addition I have decided to also donate $10 to Crossroads Safe House, for every client that scores of 50,000.
Crossroads Safe House provides shelter, safety, and assistance to abused men, women and children within the Fort Collins community.
We are continuing to offer antioxidant testing on a monthly basis for only $10. I encourage each and every one of you to be proactive about your health and join us at one of our next testing days. To reserve your spot, call our office at (970) 449 – 9757.
Did you know that Vitamin D is one of the most essential nutrients for our bodies, yet an estimated 50% of American’s are deficient in it?
Thousands of studies have been done on the health effects of vitamin D, and research shows it is involved in the biology of all cells and tissues in your body. Most fascinating to me are the dozens of studies showing that raising your vitamin D levels can significantly reduce your risk of cancer.
Most recently, a randomized clinical trial by researchers at Creighton University, found vitamin D and calcium supplementation lowered participants’ overall cancer risk by 30 percent. Another study discovered that when you increase your serum vitamin D levels to 40 ng/mL or higher, your risk for cancer diminishes by 67 percent. They found that most cancers occurred in people with a vitamin D blood level between 10 and 40 ng/mL. The optimal level for cancer protection was identified as being between 40 and 60 ng/mL.
A primary consideration when it comes to vitamin D is to get your level checked, ideally twice a year, in the middle of the summer and winter, when your level is at its highest and lowest. What you’re aiming for is a level between 40 and 60 ng/mL year-round.
It is a safe bet that most of you reading this right now haven’t been getting enough vitamin D, even if you regularly take supplements.
It has been proven that natural sun exposure is by far the best way to boost your vitamin D levels. Unfortunately, we all know that too much sun can lead to pre-mature aging, skin damage and even disease. So how do you get the most out of the sun while still protecting yourself?
Even the low SPF sunscreens can prevent your body from turning the Ultraviolet B rays in Vitamin D. In order to get your daily dose of D, you need 15-20 minutes of unprotected sun exposure.That’s right, don’t lather on that sunscreen just yet. If you have sensitive skin and are afraid you will burn easily you can decrease your sun exposure to just 10-15 minutes.
Getting your daily dose of D will keep you happy and healthy, but don’t forget to put on your sunscreen after those first 20 minutes have passed. To help prevent sunburn, make sure to reapply every two-hours and use a brand you trust.
It would be incredible to receive a massage several times a month, but realistically most of us just don’t have the time, the money, or both. I know the feeling well.
Fortunately, we have a solution for you. Many of our clients have experienced a service we call Target Massage. Target Massage is a therapeutic treatment that utilizes multiple tools to help clients heal faster. One of those tools is a massage buffer. Over the years our Target Massage clients have continually commented on how relaxing and enjoyable the massage buffer is. Clients say they love coming in for the Target Massage sessions just for the massage buffer.
So, we have decided to try something new. We will now be offering 15-minute full body Buffer Massages. If you have had a bad day and need to reset, come in for a 15-minute Buffer Massage. If you have had a hard workout or need to recover from playing a sport or game, the 15-minute Buffer Massage is the perfect treatment for you!
The Buffer Massage is done fully clothed and it only takes 15 minutes. It is a quick and convenient way to get 15 minutes of relaxation into your busy life.

One 8-minute treatment can dramatically increase blood flow and circulation, quickly improving your overall health. Bemer Therapy treatment is one our newest offerings at MRT. Bemer offers a quick, easy, and affordable method for improving your overall health.
Average healthcare professionals are charging $30 – $50 per Bemer treatment. It is my intention to make Bemer Therapy affordable to everyone, which is why I have chosen to offer the following affordable Bemer Therapy Packages.
The way you prepare your fruits and vegetables can significantly affect the level of nutrients in you consume. Cooking can destroy the nutrients in some fruits and vegetables, while increasing bio-availability in others. When cooked for 30-minutes, tomatoes antioxidant levels have been shown to increase up to 35%. On the other hand, bell peppers are best consumed raw because they lose a significant amount of nutrients when cooked.
Tips for maximizing antioxidant content of cooked veggies:
Don’t soak in water pre-cooking, water soluable nutrients like vitamin C leach into the water
Cook quickly at a high heat rather than slowly on a lower heat
Don’t cook in copper pots (this reduces the amount of vitamin C)
Boiling and steaming are the best methods for maintaining antioxidant levels for most vegetables
2. Taste the rainbow!
Eating an assortment of colorful fruits and vegetables provides you with a variety of different antioxidants. Antioxidants are often responsible for the variety of colors we see among fruits and vegetables. By diversifying the colors of your food, you are providing your body with a spectrum of nutrients it needs for optimal wellness.
3. Drink ’em up.
Green drinks, smoothies, and green tea are also great sources of antioxidants. Juicing is an easy way to consume your recommended daily serving of fruits and vegetables. Just beware of your sugar intake when it comes to fruit juice and smoothies. Make sure to stay away from your standard, store bought juices like orange juice and apple juice. These drinks tend to be high in sugar. Matcha green tea is also especially rich in antioxidants. You can drink matcha green tea alone, or try adding it to your smoothies and juice.
4. Eats nuts!
Some may be surprised to learn that nuts and seeds are actually incredibly rich in antioxidants. So, when it comes to snacking between meals try a handful of brazil nuts, almonds, or sunflower seeds. Brazil nuts are a key source of selenium, which is important for brain health, while almonds and sunflower seeds are great sources of vitamin E.
We had a great turnout for our first month of antioxidant testing, and the overall results were fantastic!
Statistically, 80% of Americans antioxidant scores are between 10,000 and 29,000. Based on the results of last month’s antioxidant tests, our average client score was 37,000. This score far exceeds the national average… but, then again I expected that from my clientele! Way to go!
I am proud that our scores were well above the national average. However, as great as those numbers look, only one person scored over 50,000.
50,000 is considered the minimum level for optimal nutritional health. It was shocking for many people who considered themselves incredibly healthy, to see how low their antioxidant scores actually were. As you can tell, the vast majority of us have work to do in order to improve our nutritional health.
Focusing on improving our antioxidant scores is incredibly important. Antioxidants are our bodies natural defense against health conditions like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. If we are proactive about taking care of our bodies, we can help prevent these conditions.
Recently released statistics from the American Cancer Society stated that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. Although these statistics are startling, the American Institute for Cancer Research says that nearly one-third of all cancers can be prevented through healthy diet, proper weight, and physical activity.
We have the power to be proactive about our health and the Biophotonic Antioxidant Scanner empowers us with the knowledge we need in order to make healthy lifestyle adjustments. For those of you that tested their antioxidant scores last month, congratulations on taking the first steps to educate yourself and make positive changes in your life.
We will continue to offer antioxidant testing on a monthly basis for only $10. I encourage each and every one of you to be proactive about your health and join us at one of our next testing days. To reserve your spot, call our office at (970) 449 – 9757.

I am passionate about helping my clients to lead healthy, happy, and pain-free lives. Although pain management is our focus at MRT, empowering my clients to take control of their general nutrition and health has always been important to me.
I have always considered myself a healthy individual. However 10 years ago, I was faced with the greatest health scare of my life. For no apparent reason, I experienced a life-threatening brain hemorrhage. Even the doctors could not understand what caused it. This incident drove me to become even more proactive about my health, and in doing so be able to then share my knowledge and experience with others.
I began changing my lifestyle and learning everything I could about various health issues, most importantly was my intention around increasing my nutritional health.
Because of my lifestyle, eating habits, and nutritional supplementation I naturally assumed I was an exceptionally healthy individual, however the brain hemorrhage I incurred would prove otherwise. The challenge I faced is that on a cellular level I never truly knew how effective these lifestyle changes were.
Several years later, I was introduced to a device that would empower me to have more understanding and control over my nutritional health.
Biophotonic Scanner: Measuring Your Antioxidant Levels
This device is called the Biophotonic Scanner, which some of you may remember I briefly introduced a few years ago.
The Biophotonic Scanner is an instrument that accurately measures antioxidant health on a cellular level. The scanner can help predict your risk for cancer, heart disease, and even diabetes by measuring the level of antioxidants in your body and providing you with a baseline measurement for your overall nutritional health.
Knowing your antioxidant level is as important as knowing your cholesterol levels, or your blood pressure. Antioxidants are our body’s secret weapon against cancer and other diseases. They are also known for slowing down the aging process, boosting your immune system, and increasing recovery times, while decreasing pain and inflammation.
A recent study on oxidative medicine and cellular longevity confirmed that not only do individuals with high antioxidant levels have a significantly decreased risk for breast cancer, but it also confirmed that the process used by the Biophotonic Scanner is an accurate method for measuring antioxidant levels.
Despite my deliberate attempt to lead a healthy lifestyle, the first time I had my antioxidant levels tested my score was low. This was very surprising to me, but the data empowered me to make lifestyle changes as I worked to increase my antioxidant score.
I focused on upping my fruits and vegetable intake and I experimented with new supplements, searching for products that had higher absorption rates. Over the last three years, I continued to retest my antioxidant levels, watching my score increase with each positive lifestyle change.
Having this data provided me with the knowledge and control I needed to intentionally increase my health. When it comes to health, we regularly utilize data, such as cholesterol, blood pressure, and weight to influence our lifestyle changes. It only makes sense that we empower ourselves with data on our nutritional health, so that we can adjust our lifestyles as we strive for optimal wellness.
A few years ago I introduced the Biophotonic Scanner to clients at MRT. Circumstances at the time, did not allow us to provide regular antioxidant testing opportunities at the MRT clinic. I am excited to reintroduce this technology to our clients and announce that we will now be offering antioxidant scanning at the MRT clinic on a monthly basis. Each scan will only cost $10.
Should your antioxidant levels be low, we will work with you to recommend lifestyle changes that will help improve your score.
We are excited to announce that we are now offering monthly antioxidant scanning for only $10!
Antioxidant Testing will be available the following Saturdays from 10 am – 12 pm.
March 11th April 15th May 20th

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease. The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions.
It is easy to make healthy changes to your lifestyle to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk the National Health Information Center recommends:
Watch your weight.
Quite smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
Proper blood circulation is essential to maintaining a healthy body. Your circulatory system is responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients to your cells and is used to filter out waste and carbon dioxide from your body. The circulatory system is also responsible for transporting hormones and supporting the Lymphatic System.
This system performs functions that are absolutely essential to keeping your body working well. A poor functioning circulatory system can lead to a wide range of health complications, which ultimately can be fatal over time.
Great cardiac health begins with a strong circulatory system. Fortunately, there are many lifestyle changes you can make to prevent and reverse poor blood circulation.
1. Stand more, sit less.
Sitting dramatically slows down blood circulation, so it is important to get up and move around regularly. Try to take standing or walking breaks every 30-45 minutes. Working at a standing desk is also a great alternative for individuals with sedentary jobs.
Exercise, especially aerobic exercise, is one of the best ways to increase blood circulation and improve cardiac health. Walking, jogging, and running are all great ways to get your blood moving.
3. Nutrition and diet.
Consume foods and supplements that support healthy circulation. Consider adding supplements like omega-3 fatty acids to your diet. Foods that support a healthy cardiovascular system include oranges, avocados, tomatoes, garlic, beetroot juice, blueberries, and nuts.
4. Stay rested.
During sleep, your heart rate slows and blood pressure drops as the cardiovascular system works to repair and regenerate. This process is an important part of supporting healthy circulation. Make sure you are getting a healthy 7-8 hours of sleep a night to support this process.
5. Bemer. In addition to making the previously listed lifestyle changes, Bemer Therapy treatments are a great treatment to enhance blood circulation. One 8-minute treatment can dramatically increase circulation. Bemer Therapy treatments are now available at MRT.
We strongly recommend you watch this short video to learn more about Bemer treatments. The results will blow you away, and you will quickly see why we are so excited about this new treatment.
