  • Connections, large and small, are crucial to our wellbeing, health, and ability to heal–from the invisible cellular level to the indivisible strength of family bonds.

    Paula knows the importance of these connections firsthand, as they became the cornerstone of strength after receiving a stage 2 breast cancer diagnosis that began a frightening journey into the unknown.

    It was Paula’s deep family connection with her daughter, Nicole, that helped pave the way forward. And it was Nicole’s insistence at looking beyond the surface to find ways to help her mother heal from within–on the most foundational level–that helped make the path to healing a successful one.

    “You don’t have to do this alone, Mom.”

    Shortly after Paula received her diagnosis, Nicole dropped everything to be with her mother every step of the way. Not just a devoted daughter, Nicole had also been studying cancer for almost a decade and came with a wealth of understanding in addition to being a rock solid support system.

    As conversations around the diagnosis shifted into conversations about how doctors were planning to treat her mother’s cancer, Nicole grew worried, concerned that her mother’s treatment didn’t include plans (or even discussions!) on how to heal Paula’s body to stop it being an environment where cancer could easily take hold.

    “It didn’t seem like [doctors] wanted to heal her body.”

    Not satisfied with the approach alone, Nicole advocated for what else could be done to help support her mother’s health as she battled cancer. When she initially researched the basics of health and innate wellbeing, one of the first things that quickly became apparent was the importance of gut health, especially in the gut lining. That’s where Nicole decided to point her efforts to help Paula.

    In addition to the overall importance of gut health, Nicole learned that gut health begins at the cellular level, where tight cellular junctions are the key to good gut health–and that loose cellular junctions can spell far-reaching health woes, like chronic inflammation, illness, and even cancer.

    “If those junctions aren’t tightly fitted, it throws your body off in so many ways.”

    Unfortunately, lots of things can harm gut health and put those those crucial junctions at risk–modern farming practices where harmful herbicides and pesticides make their way onto our plates and into our bodies (not to mention our water, soil, and air), poor connection with nature, over prescribed antibiotics and overuse of antibiotic soap, gluten, and the list goes on. It’s easy to encounter things that can harm your gut on a daily basis–and for many, that exposure occurs multiple times a day.

  • In a world where it’s impossible to avoid harmful things to your body, it’s necessary to find ways to support your body’s ability to protect itself.

    “We wanted to find something that could help heal her body so her body could do the rest.”

    This inspired Nicole to search for something that would boost her mother’s overall health by helping support her mother’s natural defenses. Knowing the complex and deep connection to gut health has to immune function, restoring Paula’s gut was Nicole’s first priority. And because she didn’t want to fall into a trap similar to Paula’s doctors by looking at solutions that only narrowly focused on one issue or symptom–like probiotics or specific vitamins–she searched for something that would truly support Paula’s gut health on its most basic, innate, natural level.

    That’s when Nicole found ION* and Paula reached a turning point.

    After only a couple weeks, Paula noticed a marked difference. Everything felt like it was working better. Unlike other supplements that add unnecessary substances (even ‘good bacteria’ for example), ION* works at the foundation of your body’s health to bolster your own defenses, protections, and functions so the whole body is supported. It’s different from everything else because it works unlike anything else.

    ION* is a daily wellness solution that’s proven to tighten loose cellular junctions to help spark stronger cellular connection and communication throughout the body, while creating a better environment upon which your unique microbiome can flourish. Don’t think of it as a supplement, think of ION* as an aid to the overall fortification of your foundational health, created to help your body do what Mother Nature intended–thrive, defend, and protect you from within.

    “In 2 years, the cancer left her body… it wasn’t conducive to being there.”

    While the journey to becoming cancer-free has come to its successful destination, the path forward continues for both Paula and Nicole. Not only is ION* still an integral part of Paula’s daily wellness ritual, Nicole also now relies on ION* to help fortify her own body as a preventative regime to support her gut, microbiome, immune function, brain health, and more.

“We wanted something to heal her body, so her body could take care of the rest.”
