Waterpick or Water Flosser to get food and bacteria out of places(between teeth and under gum-line) that toothbrushes cannot get! This totally changed my oral health! Use it everyday with warm filtered water

Klean Kanteen Reflect Stainless Steel Bottle & Interior Cap

You do not want a bottle that has any plastic…chemicals from plastic will get into your hot beverages and poison you!

Excellent countertop Reverse osmosis and carbon, 3 filter purifying filtration system. Endorsed by many well respected doctors! We love ours! We recommend you get the mineral drops and sign up for the auto-ship for refill filters. It is an investment up front, but will save you money and hassles over time. You only need to replace filters a few times a year!

I prefer shampoos for oily-normal care to clean well and a light conditioner for thin oily hair and deep conditioner for thick dry hair. For oily scalp and a deep clean I use Earth Science Olive Avocado Shampoo & then a deep conditioner.


You pet needs an organic comfy bed too that is non-toxic!

The Dog’s Bed, Premium Plush Orthopedic Waterproof Memory Foam Dog Beds, 5 Sizes/7 Colors: Eases Pet        Arthritis, Hip Dysplasia & Post Op Pain, Quality…

Pet Food: I am a huge advocate of a raw diet as it healing our rescue kitty that was ill from a rough start. There are studies showing that kibbles lead to cancer(the risk has dramatically gone way up to 50% of Dogs getting Cancer now!)

  • I love and you can go there if you live in the SF Bay Area.
  • At least gradually switch your fur-babies food to a dehydrated raw dry food that is only meat instead of the harmful carbs and fillers and oils. For canned and dry the best is Ziwipeak from New Zealand and often in pet stores in the US!

Mercola flea and tick for cats and dogs! Please, please do not use flea and tick collars that have a very bad/even deadly effect on pets! The neurotoxins go into their bloodstream and cause rashes, seizures and death and illness that you many not know is happening until it is too late…like cancer!

Our fur-baby Romeo eats 90% raw or more and gets Ziwipeak Venison(heating) and Beef(neutral) air-dried dry food at night.

Find a truly Holistic Vet that uses herbs and acupuncture. An easy start is to get your pet eating healthy first which will eliminate a lot of illness and discomfort! Its like humans you can pay the grocery bill or you can pay the medical expenses later which are much higher and more painful!

Splurges/Big Purchases/Investments in your health!

Are you eating organic and wearing organic clothing so you protect your endocrine system and hormones, but you are sleeping on a TOXIC BED! We spend a huge amount of time(I hope at least 8 hours a night in bed) so it needs to be toxic-free! Regular beds are filled with super toxic ingredients/chemicals. This purchase is worth the investment in your health that will last at least 10 years…do the math! Please use our Affiliate #1376289 Dr. Brad West & Lauren Hoover-West. You get a discount and we get a commission! We love our adjustable organic bed! We got a second one that is gel memory foam for our Mom’s house when we visit!!

Sunlighten Sauna

We all need to detox and heal…one of the best ways to detox on a deep cellular level is an infrared sauna that is non-toxic. This is the best we have found and it has a lot of bells and whistles! We love the smell of our Cedar sauna and there are 5 cycles from pain to heart health and detox…So cozy in the cold months too! Tell then Dr. Brad West sent you and we will get a credit.
