DR. SHIPPY'S FAVORITES
SHOP BY HEALTH CONCERN
The body’s immune system is a complex and dynamic defense system that comes to our rescue at the first sign of exposure to an outside invader. However, it requires various nutrients, in good supply, so that each part of the system can do its job effectively. Eating a healthy, nutrient dense diet is a great start, however, most diets are lacking the vitamins and minerals necessary to reach optimal immune status. Using high quality supplements is a great way to cover your bases and improve the structure and function of systems throughout the body.
When toxins build up in the body, cell functions suffer and symptoms may appear. When we support cellular detoxification, we bring robustness to our cells and all they do for us. Specific supplements like glutathione (known as the master antioxidant and detoxifier), phosphatidylcholine, toxin clear and more support cellular detoxification. Supporting cellular detoxification is foundational for overall health.
Circulation & Heart
Heart disease remains the number one cause of death and affects approximately one-third of adults across the globe. Once thought of as primarily a disease of old age, we now see heart disease in younger people. Most know that diet and lifestyle choices impact the cardiovascular system. But did you know that there are many nutraceuticals that offer high-level, targeted support to the heart and the vascular system? Nutrients, and plant compounds, typically have many effects on the body, and may not only help to heal immediate cardiovascular concerns but restore balance and reduce inflammation throughout the body. Remember to ask your healthcare professional when starting a new supplement to determine if it is right for you.
Allergies are the immune system’s aggressive response to otherwise harmless particles, like dust, dander or pollen. Life becomes tough for people with chronic allergies because, if left untreated, allergies can get worse over time. They can trigger sinus infections, ear infections, colds and weaken the immune system. A weak immune system can leave you susceptible to infections. A study published in Nature found that prolonged allergy exposure “produces long-term changes in the structure of the affected organs and substantial abnormalities in their function.” Allergy support supplements help with symptoms and support the body's response to allergens.
Having great energy is often cited as one of the reasons for feeling your best. When the opposite is true, and you're feeling fatigued, it is important to determine the root cause and rule out anything serious with your healthcare professional. Often, a poor diet, with low nutrient value is part of the problem. And sometimes, eating all the right foods still isn’t getting you to where you want to be - energy wise.
Supplementing with vitamins and minerals to address any deficiencies is one piece of the puzzle, the other is to target cellular or mitochondrial health. Mitochondria are the “energy factories in every cell of our body. Vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids (like CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid, niacin, glutathione, D-Ribose and phosphatidylcholine - to name a few) help to maintain healthy, well-functioning cells and mitochondrial health. Healthy cells not only support robust energy, they help protect against diseases associated with mitochondrial dysfunction.
Get Better with Age™
The choices we make regarding sleep, diet, exercise, and exposures to toxins, impacts how we feel and our overall health as we age. You may be doing everything right, but are you supporting the health of your cells?
When it comes to cellular health, we restore communication by using food and supplementation as nutritional therapy. Feeding mitochondria can also help prevent metabolic disease, autoimmune disorders, and other age-related diseases – and supports your overall physical and mental health, which typically declines as we age. Consider supplementing with powerful compounds like MitoQ, and Phosphatidylcholine.
Brain | Sleep | Mood
Aging, environmental factors, genetics, nutrition, stress and lifestyle all affect the health of your brain, memory and emotional health. Specific nutrients, amino acids, and neurotransmitters help to naturally support your brain, sleep and mental health. I encourage you to read more about these supplements that may help support your mental well-being.
The microorganisms living in the gut make up your gut microbiome. A healthy balance of microorganisms improves the immune system, digestion, and contributes to your overall health. When the gut microbiome is imbalanced, it may lead to GI disorders, weight gain, chronic inflammation and it lowers your body's ability to fight infection. Supplementing with key vitamins and minerals like magnesium, digestive enzymes, glutamine, probiotics and others, help to support the health of the microbiome.
Exposures to toxic mold, or mycotoxins, may cause mild to severe illnesses that are often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Symptoms range from brain-fog, fatigue, headaches, gastrointestinal or skin conditions to neurological disorders. Key antioxidants and nutrients help eliminate toxins from the body and provide supportive nutrients for recovery. To learn if mold may be a root cause to your symptoms, download my free “Could it be Mold?” fact sheet and resources here.
Pain + Inflammation
Inflammation is a normal protective response to tissue injury caused by trauma, toxins or microbial agents. Chronic inflammation is an inappropriate reaction of the immune system against the body’s own tissue, which wreaks havoc on cells and tissues and can lead to disease. Extensive research on different compounds like curcumin and fish oil demonstrate significant therapeutic, healthy inflammatory response properties of these and other supportive supplements. *
Prenatal, preconception, and fertility are true passions of mine. Growing research shows that a baby’s health starts before conception - and is greatly impacted by both the mother and the father. To help impact fertility and the health of your future child(ren) it is best to begin laying the foundation early. (link to Every Baby Well)

It’s not just what’s in the supplement that matters - what's not in the supplement is just as important. All formulas are free of gluten, dairy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes and toxins. There are a couple of rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of egg and a few contain tree nuts. All ingredients are clearly indicated on the product pages. Be sure to read carefully if you have any known food allergies or sensitivities.
