Got any strange, unresolved health problems? 🤭

High-dose riboflavin might help! 

MIGHT. 😬

This episode is a shot in the dark, but covers how high-dose riboflavin could help with a lot of mystery issues.

This episode is brought to you by Vitamins and Minerals 101. This is my new, free, 30-day course that covers the basics of each nutrient, including why it’s important, how to get it from food, how to know if you need more, when you should think about supplementing, and concerns for special diets or special populations. You can get it delivered by Facebook Messenger or email. The Messenger version is taught by Chris Masterbot, my baby bot, is more interactive, and has more jokes and emojis. This requires no background beyond high school and is made for the beginner, but even many experts find it a great refresher and find little golden nuggets in each lesson.

This episode is brought to you by Testing Nutritional Status: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet. I've been through the pain and suffering of embracing a diet because I *thought* it was healthy, only for it to wreck my body and mind. I've been through the path of healing, only to make the mistakes of thinking that what worked best for me would work for everyone, and that what I did to heal would be something I would need to do forever. I've learned the hard way that each of us is unique, and that we all change with time. Your needs are not mine, mine are not what they were ten years ago, and yours won’t be in ten years what they are now. That’s why we need a recipe to know exactly what’s missing, what’s there in excess, and what’s out of balance. It is my mission to empower you to know exactly what your body needs, and to make exactly the right decisions to nourish it. Make the cheat sheet your secret weapon, and use the code LITE20 to get 20% off, at https://chrismasterjohnphd.com/cheatsheet

Hey Everyone!

From now through midnight on Monday, July 8, I'm offering big discounts on my consulting services.

📌 First, if you purchase an appointment, gift certificate, or package, by that time, you will lock in my 2020 rates at $300/hour. July 9 they are going up to $450. This alone saves $150 off each appointment, and saves $300 off appointments that have one-hour data analysis add-ons.

📌 Second, if you *also* sign up for the CMJ Masterpass by midnight on Monday, July 8, I'm offering two additional benefits:

 My September through December, 2019 rates will go down from their current $450/h to $300/h. This saves $150 off each appointment and saves $300 off the price of appointments with a one-hour data analysis add-on.

 You'll get a unique coupon code that takes an additional $50 off July and August 2019 appointments (bringing them from $450 to $400 for a one-hour call, and not affecting the rate of data analysis add-ons) and all 2020 appointments, bringing them from $300 to $250 for a one-hour call, and not affecting the rate of data analysis add-ons.

👉 To take full advantage of this offer, sign up for the CMJ Masterpass using this link: https://masterpass.chrismasterjohnphd.com/cmj-master…/…/buy…

👉 Then purchase a package or gift certificate using this link: https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=16124930

👉 Then email me and I will send you a unique link you can use to get the correct prices.

Additionally, please read about what I offer using this link: https://chrismasterjohnphd.com/consultations and on the purchase page please look at my availability in the calendar and at my terms before signing up.

After you sign up for the CMJ Masterpass, you'll see the first post when you log in has more detail about how the logistics of this offer (like how to access your coupon code, for example).

Additionally, in case it helps, here is my previous post with a short summary of what I offer:

🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶
Hey everyone! 🙋‍♂️

I'm now accepting new consulting clients!

My expertise is my PhD in nutrition, with my extensive experience converting science into practical strategies for improving health, with my main interest being developing unique insights and ways of approaching things. I am not a doctor, and if you choose to work with me you will not be my patient. Rather, I will offer my opinions and knowledge to you, and will give you suggestions to help you solve your problems or achieve your goals.

In this capacity I consider myself a consultant and not a coach. I am good at giving you my logical analysis of your health data and pointing you in the right direction. I am not as good at providing motivation and accountability, and I do not offer the type of day-to-day contact that is well suited to motivational coaching.

My clients do best when they schedule appointments approximately three months apart. This provides enough time for them to try something, generate some personal experience or data, or to run tests and send me the results. This way I have new information to help interpret and I use it to help my clients revise their health programs and strategies.

The issues I am best at helping with are these:

 vitamin and mineral nutrition
 blood lipids
 weight loss
 thyroid hormones
 methylation
 antioxidant status
 blood sugar regulation
 energy metabolism and specific impairments in its pathways
 plasma amino acid and urine organic acid tests

🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶

Once again these are the three things you need to do by midnight, July 8, to take full advantage of this offer:

👉 Sign up for the CMJ Masterpass using this link: https://masterpass.chrismasterjohnphd.com/cmj-master…/…/buy…

👉 Then purchase a package or gift certificate using this link: https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=16124930

👉 Then email me and I will send you a unique link you can use to get the correct prices.

I look forward to working with you! 😊

This episode covers how to know if your iron-deficiency anemia could be helped by riboflavin, and what to do about it using food and supplements.
