If you’re missing french fries, you NEED to try these Golden Jicama Fries! These baked jicama fries are a perfect side dish, appetizer, or snack. Plus, jicama is a source of prebiotic complex carbs which benefit our gut health. Unlike Probiotics, prebiotics retain the benefits when heated. Ditch the traditional french fries and try these baked jicama fries!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a vegetable peeler, peel skin from jicama. Slice peeled jicama into fries.
To a medium pot over high heat, add water and ½ tsp salt and bring to a boil. Add sliced jicama, cover pot, and boil for 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat and drain water.
Transfer jicama to a large mixing bowl, drizzle with avocado oil and add remaining 1 tsp salt, turmeric, garlic powder, paprika, crushed dried rosemary and onion powder. Toss using tongs until jicama is fully coated in oil and spices.
Transfer seasoned jicama onto the prepared baking sheet in single layer. Bake for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before garnishing with chopped fresh parsley.
Serve with guacamole or homemade vegan ranch Dressing.
A flavorful sauce will elevate an ordinary entrée into a gourmet culinary adventure! Plus, these nutrient packed sauces will add lots of healing benefits to your plate.
Blend cilantro and olive oil until it makes a finely chopped blend, add the rest of the ingredients and blend until a delicious lumpy paste.
To use: add to soups, sauces, marinades or dressings.
Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, add a bit of filtered water till you have reached desired creamy consistency.
Place the oven rack in the middle position; and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Wrap the garlic head in parchment paper and then wrap with a layer of foil. Place in oven to roast. Put the lemons, shallot, water and salt in a Dutch oven or any ovenproof, heavy-bottomed pot with a lid. Cover the pot, place in the oven and roast for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. After the first 30 minutes, check on the lemons every 15 to 20 minutes, stirring gently to coat the lemons with the liquid. If the lemons begin to brown, lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees to prevent scorching.
Watch for lemons to begin to collapse, and for the liquid in the pot to take on a golden hue and thicken slightly. The shallot will melt into the liquid.
Remove the pot from the oven when the lemon pith is completely translucent, and the juices have turned syrupy and caramel brown. Using tongs, grab a piece of lemon and use the softened fruit to mop the sides of the pot, loosening any bits. Drop that lemon back into the pot with the others.
Remove the garlic head & lemons and the accumulated liquid from the heat and let cool completely.
In a Blender- add lemons and liquid from pan, 3 cloves of the roasted garlic, olive oil, and herbs. Add salt to taste. Blend until smooth. You can add a little bit of filtered water to loosen sauce to desired creamy consistency. This reminds me of a creamy hollandaise sauce- I love it served over vegetables like cauliflower and asparagus, and proteins such as wild fish and organic chicken.
Recipe note: The size of the lemons, the thickness of the pith, the heaviness of the pot, even swings in oven temperature, all affect the cooking time. Sometimes the lemons may need additional roasting beyond the suggested 1 1/2 hours for the pith to turn completely translucent.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 1 in 10 Americans have diabetes, which equals 34 million people. Up to 95 percent of those cases are type 2 diabetes. While type 1 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to produce insulin properly, type 2 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to use insulin properly.1
Like many things in life, insulin isn’t noticed until it goes missing. When the body cannot make enough insulin or use what it has, blood sugar rises and quality of life plummets. Even while the rate of new cases of diabetes declines, the number of diagnosed adults continues to rise. And so, many go on struggling, feeling resigned to a life of low energy, high medical costs, and uncertain futures.
But there is hope. Despite your feelings, type 2 diabetes is not a life sentence; it can be treated and even reversed, allowing you to get off of meds and take control of your life.
Here are just three of many stories we could share of the patients who’ve found freedom through Next Advanced Medicine—and whose success we can replicate for you.
Lowered his A1C from 8.4 to 5.4
Lost 55 pounds
Click here to watch Dominick’s testimonial
When Dominick was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, his blood sugar was so high that he couldn’t return to work. For over a month, he dipped into his vacation pay. But funds and time were both running out. He had already lost two brothers to diabetes, and with a third facing the same diagnosis, he knew the outlook was grim. So when he happened to see a Next Advanced Medicine commercial while out shopping for a Christmas gift, he was ready for a change.
In a very short time, Dominick’s life flipped entirely. His A1C dropped from 8.4 to 5.4—reversing his diabetes diagnosis—and he lost 55 pounds. He went from living entirely on drive-thru and take-out food to preparing his own meals and sharing recipes with his daughter—who couldn’t be happier with her dad’s transformation.
“It’s a whole new life. I have so much energy,” he says. “Honestly, I’m 48 years old. I feel like I’m 25. I’m up at 5 in the morning going for walks, and I have so much energy now, I can’t believe it. I feel like I’m high on life for this program.”
Lowered his A1C from 9.4 to 5.6
Lost 40 pounds
Click here to watch Raul’s testimonial
When Raul was diagnosed as a diabetic in 2012, a part of him just accepted that the condition would take his life. After all, his father had died of diabetes only four days before turning 69. But when Raul actually came face to face with his mortality, a different switch was flipped.
“One day while driving to work, I sneezed and had a vertigo attack,” he says. “The world starting spinning. I had a semi-truck on each side of me, so I became terrified, and decided I had to do something.” And that something was turning to Next Advanced Medicine for help.
“Our mission is to help every individual achieve their goals by getting to the root of their affliction and developing a personalized course of action.”
—Dr. Candice Hall, DC
Raul had a rough road ahead of him. For too long, his daily routine had consisted of sitting at work, sitting in the car, and sitting at home. On the day of his brush with death, his blood sugar tested at 303. When he started the program, his A1C was 9.4, he weighed 285 pounds, and his cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure were high.
After a thorough examination, the staff at Next Advanced Medicine developed a custom program for Raul that helped him to retake control of his future. By meticulously tracking everything he ate and exercising four times a week, Raul reversed his diabetes in just five months. Upon graduating, his A1C tested at 5.6, he had lost over 40 pounds, and his triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood pressure were all normal.
“I have more energy than I know what to do with. I’m building shelves and cabinets, and whatever else needs to be done around the house now,” he says. “I have to find something to do when I get home from work because I have so much energy, which I’m sure my wife appreciates—she won’t leave me alone.”
Lowered his A1C from 8.1 to 5.5
Lost 70 pounds
Click here to watch Dwayne’s testimonial
Dwayne first heard about Next Advanced Medicine when KFI radio’s Justin Worsham shared his father’s recovery story on the air. By then, Dwayne had been prediabetic for 10 years, with an A1C as high as 8.1. Hearing Justin talk about his father’s success was the final push he needed to take action.
In just six months with Next Advanced Medicine, Dwayne reversed his diabetes, lost 70 pounds, and dropped his A1C to 5.5. “It makes such a big difference,” he says. “I had a bilateral knee replacement five years ago, and I can tell the difference when I go for walks: I walk with more pep in my step, and less pain, and it will probably make my knees last longer.”
“It comes down to education and treating the whole person, not through pharmaceuticals, but through what you intake into your body, and fixing those areas of your body through the use of supplements,” Dwayne says. “It’s because you know what you are supposed to eat, and what you are not supposed to me. That education is the best will power you can have. When you know what foods are causing the problems, it’s easier to give those things up and stay on the path.”
“Now I can enjoy my five grandchildren for a lot longer than I expected to live.”
“At Next Advanced Medicine, we’ve treated hundreds of patients like Dominick, Raul, and Dwayne,” says founder Dr. Candice Hall, DC. “People come to us because they want to regain control of their health and improve their lives. Our mission is to help every individual achieve their goals by getting to the root of their affliction and developing a personalized course of action.”

Dear Valued Patient,
We hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Together, we’re entering unchartered territory that requires every one of us to be vigilant and informed while maintaining positivity and compassion.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to avoid the news media’s 24/7 cycle of fear and panic—notably, the doom-and-gloom predictions that indicate 160 to 214 million Americans could be infected, with 200,000 to 1.7 million passing away. We believe these are worst-case scenarios and don’t accurately represent reality.1
At Next Advanced Medicine, we know it’s essential to prepare for the worst while continuing to hope for the best. Medical experts are correct when they advise us to wash our hands and practice social distancing. However, nobody is talking about the obvious: it’s the soil (your immune system) and not the seed (COVID-19). In other words, the strength of your immune system is what matters most right now.
Even if you are in a high-risk group, we don’t share the fatalistic outlook. Instead, we encourage you to fortify your immune system by following these essential tips:
Most importantly, you need to provide your body and immune system with the building blocks it needs to mount an adequate response. We have put together a research-based nutritional protocol to support your body’s response to viruses. This is the system our families are on, as well as Next Advanced Medicine patients.
This four-part immune-supportive/antiviral strategy is designed to achieve the following:
We want to help you and your family enjoy the benefits of this immune-supportive and antiviral protocol. To get started, please respond to this email or call our office at 949-786-5050.
Are you a former patient of Next Advanced Medicine who would like to start a Maintenance Program to maintain and build upon your health? If so, we’d love to see you again. Please call our front desk today at 949-786-5050.
As a primary medical service, we are permitted and prepared to continue serving our patients in every way possible through this challenging time. To respect the needs of all patients—and follow state and federal guidelines—we are offering a variety of ways for you to connect with your doctor.
To minimize risk, we are encouraging phone and video appointments for most patients. However, we will remain open for individuals who need to visit their doctor in person or pick up supplements or tests. We are also happy to ship supplements for a small fee.
If you are experiencing any symptoms, or believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you contact your local hospital for instructions.
Your’s in health,
Next Advanced Medicine

P.S.—Now is the time to double-down on your resolve to improve and reverse your chronic health condition. In times of stress, it’s common for us to turn away from productive health practices. You can do this. Stay focused!

Hello Everyone, Dr. Hall here. We are trying to keep you up to speed with the most current information coming from the CDC and Pubmed regarding the virus. We are honored to be one of the businesses that has been declared essential so we can remain open and help our community.
What we are learning about this virus is that many of the people being hospitalized or dying seem to be getting something called an IL6 storm, this is a storm of inflammation, fast.
Let me explain this. The armed services have multiple branches to protect us. You know them, the army navy, Airforce, and Marines. The immune system is no different it is there to protect us and has multiple branches. As you know the Marines are the first ones on-site, but imagine we only needed 50 marines but instead 50,000 show up. This creates an overwhelming defense. When your body makes too much defense, too much inflammation we call it an inflammation storm. The article is referenced below. https://selfhack.com/blog/interleukin-6/
This may be one of the reasons why people diagnosed with a disease are at higher risk. This inflammation storm is affecting the lungs and the heart. So this storm, this IL6 storm or “massive inflammation fast” is the problem.
Now what do we do about it? How do we help limit IL6? Now, this is important. I am not saying that this will cure the coronavirus or even prevent you from getting it. I am simply stating what I would be doing if I had something raising my IL6 or inflammatory levels. Nothing that I am suggesting has been tested against COVID-19 or coronavirus specifically but most have been shown to reduce or inhibit IL6.
You can check with your doctor and see if it is ok to take these things before or during a virus. This is not the time to do nothing. This is the time to do more for your health than ever before.
If I go through the list it may seem overwhelming so I am going to post it below and on our website.
So if you are sitting home worried or feeling helpless then know there are things you can do to help your body be stronger. Now, are you going to do all the things on the list? No.
Might you do some of them? We are.
Fight the inflammation storm (IL6) with:

Makes 2 main dishes
4 cups baby greens of your choice, I like the spicy green blend (spinach and mustard green blend)
2 small garnet yams, washed & scrubbed & sliced into wedges
3 beets (assorted colors) washed & scrubbed
Avocado oil spray
4 strawberries sliced
2 TBS Hemp seed
2 TBS sunflower seed
2-4 patties of apple gate, chicken breakfast sausage patties (depending on how many people will be eating & appetite) or Applegate chicken sausage sliced
1 c. Blackberries
1 TBS. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 TBS. Lemon juice
3 TBS olive oil
1 tsp. Himalayan pink salt
Fresh cracked pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 420 degrees. Spray your baking sheet with avocado oil. Place sweet potato wedges and whole beets on baking sheet. Roast in oven for 30 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. During the last 10 minutes of Roasting place your sausage patties or sausage slices on the baking sheet.
While the vegetables are roasting prepare the salad dressing:
Blend Blackberries in the blender, strain through a mesh strainer into a medium-size mixing bowl to remove the seeds. Discard seeds. Whisk in the apple cider and lemon juice. Next whisk in the olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the vegetables from the oven, let cool slightly until cool enough to safely handle. Using a kitchen towel that you don’t mind will get stained; grab each beet and wrap it in the towel, use the towel to scrub the skin off the beet- it will come off easily. Cut beets into wedges.
Assemble the Salad:
Place greens on the Plate, arrange a few sweet potato wedges, assorted colored beet wedges, avocado, & strawberries. Drizzle the salad dressing on the salad and garnish with 1 tbs. each hemp and sunflower seeds. Top with a sausage patty or sausage slices.
*You may make the Bone broth from scratch, or purchase Prepared Organic Bone broth from your market to save time.
