One of the many roles we have at Designed2Win® is helping you – as well as your patients, clients or loved ones – gain or regain a state of optimal health. These include a general means of improving cell functioning. Improved cell function is often obtained by supporting the body’s cells in the making of a particular protein, or in the use of such protein. This results in a broad range of health benefits, including improved energy and enthusiasm, and ultimately the freedom to carry out one’s life purpose.

I fondly remember hearing James Cash Penney speak at the University of Missouri in the fall of 1955.
Fresh out of high school, I was engaged in a mentorship program at Gradwohl Laboratories in St. Louis. When Dr. Gradwohl learned that J.C. Penney was giving a motivational talk that weekend, he insisted that I attend.
The time was well spent. Mr. Penney recalled his humble beginnings and said something that has forever stayed with me. A business can never assume that what worked when you started will sustain you today…and certainly not tomorrow. To survive and move forward with confidence you must constantly “test and adjust” your approach.
In our newest book – currently in the works – antibiotic resistance is one of today’s major challenges, for which we propose an answer.
In medicine, the current standard of care involves testing to identify the organism, and then administering a specific combination of antibiotics that have shown some promise in resolving the infection. There are other alternative possibilities, but standard of care rules.
It has worked fairly well….that is until recently when a woman in Las Vegas became infected with a subspecies of Klebsiella pneumonia that is known to be resistant to virtually all antibiotics. Not having an answer, the woman died from her infection. Certainly, her death has served to spur the entire health industry into making a new commitment to resolving the issue of antibiotic resistance.
At Designed2Win, a positive health outcome is the most important goal we’ve set for our clients. Yet, getting there often requires going against a myriad of popular belief systems. Non-fat and low-fat are two such popular beliefs that are most often encountered. So, when someone wants to lose weight, improve their resistance to diabetes, get rid of toxins, lower their high blood pressure, and/or normalize their cholesterol we spend a lot of time explaining why organic, full fat dairy (free of synthetic hormones and antibiotics) is a hallmark of the plan we’ve given them.

Why Do We Ask You to Eat Raw, Unsalted Nuts and Seeds?
We often specify that you select raw, unsalted sunflower or pumpkin seeds – and the same for pecans and walnuts. Most of us have grown up eating the roasted and salted versions of these foods. Why switch to raw? Continue reading

Body, Mind and Spirit – you’ve heard this, of course, many times. Although at Designed2Win, our main focus is on the “body” aspect of this trinity, we are always mindful of the total picture as we do that. And in dealing with stress – often appearing in our lives as an inability to focus, relax or sleep – all three of these are important in getting at the root. Here’s one of our commonly-recommended ways of managing stress, approached in this “Body, Mind, Spirit” manner. Continue reading
