There is one major factor at the root of all illness – that is chronic inflammation. However, the factors that contribute to this inflammation are many, and can include:
* overconsumption of highly inflammatory foods such as refined sugar, trans fats, alcohol, food additives, refined grains
* exposure to environments toxins
* excessive stress: physical, psychological or mental
Science tells us that various nutrients and foods have specific chemical components that act as inflammation regulators in the body and can help reduce this inflammation and the health risks associated with it. Whether preparing for an upcoming surgery, recovering from an injury, dealing with digestive or intestinal issues, autoimmune conditions, arthritis, or skin issues – inflammation is always at play. mipstickYvette can help you select the best Lean On Meals foods to support reducing inflammation and improve your symptoms.
When people hear the word “hormones”, most think of the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone. But there are many organs and glands (other than just the ovaries and testes) in the endocrine system of the body that secretes hormones, such as the thyroid, pancreas, adrenals, and pituitary. Hormones are chemical messengers that affect many different processes in the body, including metabolism, sexual function, mood and so much more. They all work together to control a very tight balance, and if one or more is even slightly off, it can cause widespread, major health problems. PCOS, irregular menstrual cycles, hot flashes, infertility, reduced libido, digestive disturbances, emotional instability, and insomnia are only a few of the many symptoms of hormonal imbalance for men and women.
The good news is that diet can help. mipstickYvette can help explore what’s at the root of imbalance, and provide evidence-based food/nutrient recommendations to support contributing body systems or organs.

Nutrition also affects how the brain communicates using the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, playing a vital role in mental health and mood regulation.
Several of our food selections contain omega-3 fats and other brain-healthy nutrients. mipstickYvette can help create a brain-boosting plan perfect for the busy student, executive, the aging, and others looking to optimize cognitive and mental ability.
Oxidative damage occurs in the body as a result of normal metabolic processes, but also from exposure to stress, chemicals, pesticides and toxins on foods and/or household and body products, alcohol, consumption of rancid fats, radiation from the sun, etc. Chronic and excess exposure is ultimately what leads to the breakdown of and interference with the normal ways that cells function in our bodies. The result is inflammation, mutation of cells, illness and disease. Science shows that various nutrients have anti-oxidant properties and can help to reduce this damage. mipstickYvette can help you select anti-oxidant rich foods to support immunity, reduce disease risk, and fight illness.
