Exceptional Quality

Finding Peaks episode with Chris Burns, Founder & CEO of Peaks Recovery interviewing our Dr Van Anrooy and Health and Wellnes coach Kayli Meyers about our general approach to Health and Wellness. Incorporating cutting edge, evidence based data such as genetic profiles along with healthy lifestyles helps us achieve better results faster in promoting optimal brain health, healing and performance.

Our Dr. Van Anrooy is interviewed on the Randy & Christa Show about the role of Vitamin D in brain health and healing. Technically not a vitamin, it is a hormone building block formed naturally in our skin when exposed to UV-B sunrays. Vitamins by definition we get primarily through food. Whilesome foods contain Vitamin D either naturally or as an additive, our primary source is the same sun rays that tan us (and can burn which is bad for everything). Sunblock can protect us from harmful burning yet alsoblock the natural creation of Vitamin D. Optimal Vitamin D levels are one of our most important epigenetic factors. These factors determine whether healthy or unhealthy genes are transcribed/expressed in our cells. Ironically, we may inherit the genetic risk factor for Vitamin D deficiency. So once our Vitamin D becomes depleted, ie levels below 50 ng/mL, we are more likely to have our genetic risk factor expressed which further depletes our levels.
