How can you get involved too?
What do you recommend for stress?
Stress comes in many forms – emotional, workload, physical, metabolic, overstimulation from EMF, lack of sleep, inadequate nutritional support, etc. Most individuals deplete their brain and nervous system neurotransmitters which may promotes a feeling of being “wired and tired,” anxious, depressed, unrestful sleep, PMS, cravings, fatigued, etc. This is not a muscle weakness or lack of cellular energy but rather is often due to insufficiency or an imbalance of the neurotransmitters, serotonin, dopamine, and GABA. It is very common. While taking extra tryptophan or tyrosine may help, most often a blend containing three of the most common neurotransmitters is needed. Neuro-T PROmote was designed to address this by including not only the precursors for the main neurotransmitters, but also some of the co-factors necessary to help the body make them.
What do you recommend for detoxing?
Detoxification is one of the most important aspects of optimize health. Taking lots of vitamins and supplements without addressing and supporting the main detoxication pathways is often overlooked. Even those who do “cleanses” often fail to give the body the tools it needs to naturally detoxify itself on a daily basis. Everyone is constantly being exposed to environmental, microbial, and metabolic toxins even if they “eat organic” and drink “purified water” and so on. The most effective detox system is built in the body already but it needs to be supplied with the ingredients to maintain tissue detox pathways. At the same time as you detoxify, you need to reduce the effect of toxins and the detoxification process itself. GSH-SOD PROmote was designed to address this by providing a broad range of detoxification co-factors and anti-oxidants to stimulate daily tissue and organ detox.
What do you recommend for poor circulation?
This is perhaps the most commonly under-recognized problem in North America. Many of the complications of diabetes are related to impaired microcirculation. Dementia and memory loss are often due to “small vessel Ischemia” which is a technical way of saying that the microcirculation in the brain did not or is not supplying enough blood flow. Erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, cold hands or feet, loss of feeling or numbness, heart attacks, dizziness and many other common disease states have a component of poor microcirculation. While looking at the blood pressure reading as the primary issue is what seems to be the focus and unfortunately prioritizing keeping the blood pressure within a specific range is priority, in fact your microcirculation is far more important. The lining of the arterial wall is what needs to be assessed. Testing it is not difficult or invasive, but it just isn’t done during routine blood pressure checks and blood pressure medications do not help the lining of the blood vessel wall (called the “endothelium”) function better. For this, EndoVasc PROmote was designed using a blend of nutrients and co-factors that have been shown to help microcirculation through supporting the health of the blood vessel wall itself.
What do you recommend for help falling sleep?
Sleep is a complicated issue because it is influenced by many factors. The first question to be answered is whether or not the issue is trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. These are two very different issues and sometimes both need to be addressed. The first thing is to try to not get frustrated when you have sleep issues, simply laying down in a comfortable position has rejuvenative effects on your circulation, joints, etc. It is not uncommon to hear, “I can’t shut my brain off” or “I can’t stop thinking.” For some, they simply don’t feel tired at the traditional time to go sleep. For these individuals, their brain needs to be signaled that it is time for sleep and a mild sedative effect are worth trying temporarily. I do not often recommend pharmaceuticals as sedation is not the same as restorative sleep. Likewise, there doesn’t seem to be any one herbal or supplement blend that works for everyone but many report that Regenerest or Sleep Relief PROmote help promote sleep onset. Melatonin is a common recommendation but getting the right dose is key to success and avoiding awakening very groggy. Short-acting products help with sleep onset and slow release products help with night awakenings. More is not always better. Stimulating specific acupuncture points in the ear and head can be very helpful. In addition, I suggest developing a routine to “program” your brain to begin engaging in sleep. A pitch black room and turning off the TV, wi-fi, phone, etc. is considered good sleep preparation. Thinking of a very specific subject but not work, school, family, or a socially relevant topic often helps. For me it was learning to take slow deep breaths that train your brain to switch into sleep mode.

What can or should be done about exposure to 5G?
The fifth generation (thus, the "5G") of mobile wireless systems is a way for devices, both mobile and stationary, to send and receive data without being plugged into a wall in your home or at the office. It was developed because it can send and receive far more data than existing technologies, and it will be able to support greater numbers of users without getting bogged down. First, let’s get some background about electromagnetic radiation. An electromagnetic field (EMF) is a field of energy that results from electromagnetic radiation, a form of energy that occurs as a result of the flow of electricity. Electric fields exist wherever there are power lines or outlets, whether the electricity is switched on or not. Magnetic fields are created only when electric currents flow. Together, these produce EMFs. Electromagnetic radiation exists as a spectrum of different wavelengths and frequencies, which are measured in cycles per second, or hertz (Hz). Unlike 4G’s wavelengths that travel along the surface of the skin, 5G’s waves are automatically absorbed into the skin and cause the skin to rise in temperature. Although 5G exposure generally occurs at intensities too low to cause significant heating, measurable biologic and health effects on the peripheral nervous system, the immune system and the cardiovascular system still occur. While there is no consensus on the health risks of 5G, there is definitely an effect on your body. Essentially 5G use is an untested experiment being done involuntarily on human beings, animals, and plants. Because there will be thousands of 5G emitting and transmitting towers and stations in every city, it will be almost impossible to avoid them besides moving off the planet. In the absence of confirmed safety, how might you reduce any potential adverse consequences besides limited personal 5G exposure from our phones, tablets, etc.? I use GSH-SOD Boost PROmote and StemCell PROmote because they assist in balancing the metabolism of the cells from oxidative stress and radiation.
What do you recommend for preventing/reversing osteopenia and osteoporosis?
I’ve put together a brief summary about bone mineralization on the website (https://www.drkaslow.com/osteoporosis). Because remineralizing bones takes more than just calcium and vitamin D, I often recommend a supplement that combines the various co-factors shown to be important in keeping bones healthy and mineralized –OsteoBuild PROmote.
