Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a compound that helps to generate energy within the cells, which is why it’s so important in combating heart disease, poor brain function, and even cancer. The human body is supposed to naturally produce CoQ10, but it decreases with age. Therefore, we need to supplement as we get older. Recent research out of Kashan University of Medical Sciences (Iran, Nov. 2017) shows CoQ10’s benefits to diabetics.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vital nutrient in the human body. CoQ10 is widely distributed in the human body and serves as a cofactor for the production of cellular energy in most human cells. As the name implies, a coenzyme is a factor that helps the function of an enzyme; enzymes are small proteins in the body that carry out nearly every chemical reaction. CoQ10 is made in our body and therefore for most people it is not essential to eat CoQ10 or take supplements, however CoQ10 status can become depleted because of various health conditions, medications and environmental factors.

It’s very important that you have your eyes checked at least once a year. When you do that, you might be surprised to learn (and your doctor might, too) that your eyesight is improving. Several of our patients have seen improvement and have not required new prescriptions after experiencing the DR treatment.
We all hate exercise, don’t we? But have you heard about the benefits of rebounding? Get yourself a mini-trampoline (you can find one for about $100–no need to spend more) and spend only a few minutes a day on it.
Dr. Samuel West discovered the importance of activating the lymphatic system for better health and pain control. He found that “trapped proteins” in the lymph system produce conditions that cause loss of energy, disease, and death at the cellular level. He has had outstanding results by simply getting people to pump out the toxins from the “garbage” disposal system (our lymph system) with simple, gentle movements on a mini-trampoline, called “rebounding.”
