Announcing gut health specialization & MAY classes
As we're all adjusting to the "stay at home" model of our current lives, I wanted you to know what I've been up to for the last month. I have some great news and announcements to share with you!
1. MY AREA OF SPECIALITY IS......
First and most importantly, I have finally landed on my niche in nutritional therapy - GI health! It's a huge relief to me as I've been exploring various niches such as women's health, nutrition for athletes, diabetes, weight management, but I am taking an advanced nutrition course entitled, "Mastering The Art and Science of Gastrointestinal Healing" and it's the bomb!
Digestion is the most important healing priority because when it’s not optimal, a cascade of downstream detrimental effects are created that can lead to a plethora of health issues. Any condition can be linked to digestion, and with DNA stool analysis and blood work to determine food sensitivities, we can eliminate dysbiosis and heal and restore the gut microbiome. I'm very excited about these new tools that will make nutritional therapy that much more effective.
Here's a list of health issues directly related to digestion, that can be successfully resolved through the use of the GI-MAP® stool testing, the MRT-170 food sensitivity test, as well as through the use of appropriate and targeted supplement protocol that includes probiotics.
Chronic loose stools/constipation
Fat, grain, or food intolerance
Chronic abdominal discomfort
Change in bowel habits
Post-travel digestive changes
Chronic skin conditions
Inflammatory conditions/Elevated C-RP
Weight gain and inability to lose weight
Look for more details about pricing, etc soon!

It's accurate nutrition information and interesting discussions rolled into each class.

3. I became a member of the Better Business Bureau as of this month.
I've been pondering joining for awhile and now felt like a good time to demonstrate my business integrity with this accreditation. If you and I have worked together in some capacity and you feel inclined to provide a review, feel free to click the icon on the bottom of my home page https://www.carolelayton.com/ and it will take you to the BBB website. According to the BBB, having positive reviews will drive Google to move my business to the top of the search page, and every little bit helps. Thank you in advance for supporting me and my business.
4. Spring is here which means asparagus is finally in season!
I wish I could claim this as my own, but alas, I put in 4 plants this spring (that's my garden in the background), and won't be seeing shoots this big for at least 3 years. Also, please don't look too closely at my mangy hair - I quite overdue for a trim.
My favorite way to cook asparagus is on the grill. I snap off the ends (using the bendy trick), throw them in a large bowl, add a splash of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and a little salt and pepper, and grill for a 10 minutes on medium heat. Asparagus are a good source of vitamin c and a, as well as potassium. They provide good fiber (for digestion) as well as a fair number of phytonutrients (the substances in plants that provide specific health benefits). When possible, choose organic. Also, don't pick the big fat ones, the smaller the better (younger).
