OUR PRINCIPLES

Respect, integrity and sustainability are our three main principles. They apply to the entire circle of life: the Earth and the people.

We are committed to helping improve the quality of  people’s lives with paying no less attention to how this reflects on our overall environment.

Hence we chose purest ingredients from sustainable sources  and we ensure our plants are grown free from pesticides or other pollutants as much as possible.

OUR FORMULATIONS

Sloth supplements are carefully crafted to target the issue precisely, compounded with unique  natural ingredients. These natural, proven, potent formulas are excellent clinical solutions intended to restore bodily functions on multiple levels of healing. Our formulas are very specific as we chose a single ingredient deliberately to target the issue more precisely. Single product ingredients exclude possible medication interaction, are safer for dosing, as well as are much easier to combine with other products or medications when necessary.

YOUR OPINION MATTERS

Your health improvement is not only our milestone but also a validation of our efforts. We value your opinion.

We believe a relationship between a patient and a doctor is imperative in refining our work. Being well aware of what works for one and not for the other motivates us to further research for better results.

Your feedback about sloth supplements is our drive, the result is our reward.

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make”

– Jane Goodall –

Did you know:

  • Baby sloth learns how to eat by leaking the lips of their mother
  • Being slow is far from lazy. It is unbelievable successful survival strategy
  • Sloth actually smells like jungle: fresh, green and a little bit earthy. Smelling like the rainforest is a great way to hide from predators with a keen sense of smells. Sloths are masters of jungle camouflage!
◽️Part I  TCM doesn't just target your thyroid gland but the body as a whole.  Therefore, to rebalance your thyroid organ, it is very important to find out which internal organs are disordered according to your symptoms.  There are eight acupuncture channels which are directly or indirectly connected with the thyroid gland. These are the Kidney, LIVER, Gallbladder, San Jiao, Bladder, Stomach, Spleen and Small Intestine channels.  This indicates that a disorder in any of these channels in the rest of the body can also affect the function of the thyroid gland.  All of these symptoms indicate an underlying Liver Qi Stagnation with Spleen and Kidney Yang Deficiency syndrome.  ⚪️ Diet suggestions:  We suggest avoiding eating and drinking frozen or very cold temperature foods. It’s best to leave them to warm up to room temperature before eating. Avoid eating salads and raw foods in the winter time. It is suitable to eat the following warming foods more often: pepper, onion, ginger tea, lamb, beef, lamb or beef soup, venison.  ⚪️ Lifestyle and exercise suggestions:  People who experience these symptoms above are better suited to being in warm and sunny environments. Avoid living in damp and cold environments.
It is best to choose warm colours to decorate your home such as red or orange.
Get plenty of sunshine, at least 30 minutes a day.  ◽️Slightly vigorous exercise is suitable, but ensure that the exercise you do is suitable for your body’s energy levels. If your body feels very tired the next day, this is a sign you did too much exercise the previous day.  #goodfood #guthealth #acne #integrativenutrition #science #brain #slowdown #sloth #mentalhealth #constipation #diabetes #liver #wellness #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathicdoctor #healthylifestyles #eczema #depression #anxiety #endometriosis #grilledartichoke #healthyfood #foodporn #foodislove #youarewhatyoueat #lifestylemedicine

Constipation and sexual dysfunction  in females 
➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰  The prevalence of constipation in adults has been more frequent in the female population.  Women commonly have estrogen and progesterone-related biological issues that directly interfere with gastrointestinal motility through activation of the autonomic nervous system, which may lead to constipation.  Study has shown high percentage of women suffering from constipation being associated with clinical factors, such as:  ➰hemorrhoids,

In addition, chronic constipation induces mental stress that often results in BP increase.  Constipation also leads to strain on a stool which can include breathing in a strainer manner that consequently affects BP.  Increased BP is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.  On the other hand, patients with cardiovascular disease tend to be constipated.  For example, patients with congestive heart failure are often advised to restrict water intake and frequently are prescribed diuretics, and that can lead to constipation.  There is also a link between constipation and BP management. For example, calcium channel blockers, used to control BP cause constipation as a side effect.  Various factors can contribute to the hardening of stool and 
the weakening of bowel movement.  Patients with cardiovascular dis‐
ease, especially when complicated with heart failure, are instructed 
to restrict their water intake and are often administered diuretics, 
which can promote constipation.  Moreover, various factors after 
hospitalization can also promote constipation, such as decreased ac‐
tivity, environmental changes. Chronic constipation induces mental 
stress, which may be related to rising BP.  Constipation also leads 
to strain at stool, which can include breathing in a strained manner 
similar to the Valsalva maneuver.

Reflecting on 2021 🎉  Two immigrant women.  Both entrepreneurial and business savvy but not without a CRASH and painful experiences in the past business endeavors.  Not failures by any means, rather beat up by hard core business reality.  Endured one big hit and embarked on another business journey immediately after. (‘call me crazy one more time’)  Broken but Unstoppable.  No hope was lost. Strong belief and faith allowed a new beginning not from zero but from MINUS.  In the midst of the most unpredictable times in the history, with pandemic and all the possible restrictions Sloth MD came to life.  ‘How’ and ‘If’ remained big questions with absolute inability to predict, plan and strategize.  2021 goals and intentions were set against all the odds.  Tones of masterminds, hundreds of hours of meaningful conversations, continuous self mastery, personal development and growth.  Calibrating endlessly with each other and sharpening abilities to cooperate, adapt, listen, accept, move on. Engaging objective parties to participate and guide us resulting with astonishing results.  It was an absolute delight - the creation of this purposeful brand and business.  With pure intentions, dedication and togetherness Sloth MD started changing people's lives.  We became fierceful health and wellness educators.  And then 👊🏻 @remi_bratic our first sale 🎉, and bragging all about it started the wheel spinning and spinning.  In retrospect, it was an amazing year. Challenging in every aspect yet transformational. We embraced it all.  Our goals exceeded our expectations and we are ready to raise the bar for 2022.  Stay tuned for exciting news!  PS.

Thyroid hormone can also suppress bile acid synthesis in primary human hepatocytes. However, another study demonstrated that thyroid hormone could reduce circulating proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PSCK9) levels and stimulate bile acid synthesis in humans.  Bile acids can induce energy expenditure and have beneficial metabolic effects by promoting cyclic-AMP-dependent thyroid hormone activating enzyme type 2 iodothyronine deiodinase (D2).  Normal thyroid function is important to maintain healthy reproductive function in both sexes. During pregnancy, both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism cause increased rates of spontaneous miscarriage and preterm delivery. Among women undergoing in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET), treatment with levothyroxine does not reduce the miscarriage rate among those who test positive for anti-thyroperoxidase antibodies compared to those with normal thyroid function.  Thyroid disorders have been demonstrated to be linked to reduced fertility, hypomenorrhea, and polymenorrhea and potentially linked to gestation-induced hypertension and placental abruption.  Given the above data, the gut microbiota may influence the reproductive endocrine system by inducing thyroid dysfunction, such as hypothyroidism  #Gastrointestinal, #Intestinalpermeability #integrativenutrition #science #brain #slowdown #mentalhealth #constipation #diabetes #liver #wellness #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathicdoctor #healthylifestyles #eczema #depression #anxiety #endometriosis #grilledartichoke #healthyfood #foodporn #foodislove #youarewhatyoueat #lifestylemedicine #Gutmicrobiota #reproductive #endocrine #estrogen #androgen #insulin
