My cold regimen

I’m grateful to say that I rarely get sick for extended periods of time.  I believe what’s helped me stay vibrant and healthy is a lifestyle where I continually focus on investing daily on my immune system. The below regimen may seem extreme and it’s not for everyone. It works for me. I am not a physician (my wife is) so make sure you get the advice from your own doctor / health practitioner before before attempting what I do.

Take a probiotic supplement daily. A quality brand is OK but I have been known to take the $4.99 acidophilus probiotic from Trader Joes.  They say that a healthy gut is the core of a strong immune system.

When I do have the first sign of a cold, I take a supplement called Yin Chiao which you can find on or most health food stores or even Asian stores.

I also take the Source Wellness Formula supplement, however I’ve heard that the formula is more watered down than it used to be.

I also consume garlic pills since swallowing raw garlic isn’t always bearable.

For anyone looking to develop a high level of mastery in nutrition
with the opportunity to create a thriving career as a Health Coach,
I recommend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition aka IIN.

For me it was one of the most transformational experiences when
I attended 8 years ago, just a few months after my Dad passed
away from a stroke. Going to the school created ripple effects all
around me, especially my family. Almost everyone close to me is
making better health choices and benefiting from understanding
the power of prevention.

Soon after graduating the school in 2005, I built a peer-to-peer support
and accountability community called Peer Success Circles at to support entrepreneurs, students and health
coaches to realign themselves with their goals and dreams until they are

Some of the modalities of communication I learned from the school
have helped Peer Success Circles expand. I owe the school a great deal
for this.

As a business strategist, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to build several
other health oriented projects since graduating and support coaches with
their books and product launches. One of these projects called Heart Essentials
is  providing an integrated approach linking leaders of prevention in both
Western and Holistic Medicine / Nutrition together. In doing so, we are
providing access to education and resources to raise awareness in preventing
Cardiovascular Disease and Strokes.

In addition to all this, by learning how to detoxify my body I was
personally able to clear away all my allergies, which previously I had
been getting heavy duty shots and taking medication for over a dozen
years.  No more shots and no more constant congestion.  My voice started
shifting in the process, from clearing out my system of toxins, building up
my immune system and learning how to breathe more effectively.

I had no expectation that I would grow so much that year and since. I
also have more clarity and energy than when I was 20 years old just
from embracing basic lessons, cleansing and having healthier habits.

With all this said, if your goal is to be a certified nutritionist and know
the science of nutrition inside out, the program may not be right for you.
It may serve you to invest in a degree  from another school.
What you get from IIN is a strong understanding across different theories
of nutrition. It’s up to you as an individual to expand that knowledge
and establish yourself in a niche.

An area that I can almost guarantee you will grow in is your business and
marketing skills which I believe is absolutely essential in any economy.
Going to the school opened the pathway for me to do that across multiple

The founder of the school, Joshua Rosenthal has created a unique
culture and experiential teaching style.  In the process, The Institute
for Integrative Nutrition has become the largest nutrition school in
the world and with many of the top authorities on nutrition teaching

Another benefit is that even though I graduated close to seven years
ago, I have access to conferences, parties each year, an active
online community, my own personal interactive coaching site,
masterminding, ongoing training through their immersion program
and much more. These are all free and available to all graduates.

In the Fall of 2011, we had a free two day alumni conference with
lecturers Deepak Chopra.Sally Fallon, Mark Hyman Joel Fuhrman
and others.

The school puts a big emphasis on teaching students to market
themselves and be competitive as coaches, which is something
I find lacking in most other coaching programs.

Michael Pollan recently reported in the New York Times that, “according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, three-quarters of health care spending now goes to treat ‘preventable chronic diseases.’ We’re spending $147 billion to treat obesity, $116 billion to treat diabetes, and hundreds of billions more to treat cardiovascular disease and the many types of cancer that have been linked to the so-called Western diet.”

The world is finally waking up to the importance of good nutrition and preventative health. New York City’s public health officials have just unveiled an
ad campaign that shows globs of human fat gushing from a soda bottle, in their struggle against high-calorie beverages. Michelle Obama has planted an organic garden at the White House and is working to set up a farmer’s market near the White House.
