Again, thank you kindly for your respond to my e mail
I do research before I ask you question, and I still watching YOUTUBE .....mainly I watch Jim H. videos and Mark's he put a lot of information's out here.......
I told my husband I don't think you can't drink it at once because MMS last only one hour....but he was nagging me to e mail you so I did and yes...I was just a little concern what is going on with my body
I am feeling awesome I am doing great......but here I am at the table or cooking meal and my nose is running and when I say its running its running........I clean my nose A LOT and my throat feels sore.....very sore......but not something I cannot control it.......its not painful......it just feels like I am coming down with sore throat...but yet is not sore...sore.....the soreness is somewhere on the back........
but knowing what is going on.....it makes me so happy I want those toxins out of my body......I have no problem with that at all as long as I know what is going on ....I AM MORE THAN FINE.....
also I need to tell you that I have a sensitive teeth.......using MMS....I have noticed I don't have sensitive teeth no more....I would brush my teeth with baking soda......and I would wait about an hour .....before I go to sleep and I would brush it with MMS......and let me tell you something else...I have implant tooth on the back...I have noticed that tooth got a little bit lose........and it was very painful for me to chew on that side........NO MORE.....I can eat on that side......and my teeth are not sensitive no more..........also I have noticed getting up every morning when you run your tongue around your teeth I feel this softness.....where as before.....I felt this "fuzziness" if you will overnight built-up ...so this is huge....I think.....no pain.....and tooth is great shape again.....I don't know if MMS had something to do with that or what....well I know it did....but I thought that I would mentioned that for the record to help others.....and my heart still bothers me........not as much as before........before MMS...I would feel like someone was squeezing my heart........where as no it feels like someone is poking my heart......huge HUGE huge differences.....it doesn't hurt as much...........but that poking or tapping feeling happens a little bit more often.....which is different......you know .......which makes me wonder............maybe I got off those pill just in time........because I knew it something is not right ........but according to my blood test my doctor would tell me everything is OK and if you have heart issues you need to see cardiovascular ......that was it.......so enough about that............something else I would like to share with you is that ....my friend who called me last week to tell me she had a breast cancer ........she had decided to go for double vasectomy :-( and she had that done ..........but that was her choice I was trying to help her .....and stir her towards this direction and start taking MMS...but she was too scared........and she did what she did....right now she is recovering and she said she is in LOTs of pain.....:-( that makes me very sad........again thank you so very much for your e mail back
God Bless you and thank you Barbara
Last week we talked about how the body is so complex, but what we have to do is simple to keep it healthy. A few examples are eating the right foods, drinking the right drinks and keeping your body physically healthy.
Video from Last week’s 2Voice Broadcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpf5ZeW5mCQ
Our part, in regard to health is simple and that is; to provide what the body was designed to use to run proficiently. Detoxing accumulated toxins from the body as well as reducing toxins from entering the body and building up the body’s immune system are the steps we focus on to restore health” with the Genesis II Church Sacraments.
This week we will be talking about how important the tube that runs through your body from the mouth to the colon called the “Digestive System” is to your overall health and well-being! 80% of your body’s immune system is in the Digestive System. It sure stands to reason to know how to protect it is VERY important!
Listen in LIVE at: www.g2voice.is 10 AM EST SUNDAY.
G2Voice Broadcast #71: The Digestive System, “The Pie Hole to the Butt hole”.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
I believe that, all things of the body are included in this verse above. Why would I say that? Well, as the verse says, if you love God you’ll probably want to take care of the temple He built for you to live in, right?
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” I Corinthians 6:19-20
Question: What are toxins doing to the digestive system of the body? Let’s put what we learned about from basic anatomy of the body and look at physiology, (how the body works naturally), of the human body, especially the digestive system.
The main entrance to this temple is through the mouth. This is the place where the majority of all nutrients that support the systems of the body enter in. In fact, the body is designed to run off the energy produced by these nutrients. So, whatever enters the body through the mouth is really in your power as the one in charge of opening it. We are gate keepers to the temple so to speak. I guess due diligence is required to have knowledge of what to put in it or not, correct? Is that logical to you? We are natural beings designed to live off of things that are naturally occurring. We are not synthetic or artificial beings that live off of let’s say, plastic, right? So, does it make sense to not eat NON foods or foods that are genetically and unnaturally modified as we see today? You walk into a grocery store today and how much of the foods there are naturally occurring and not processed? Not many.
So, if you eat some Pringles with a Coca Cola, would you say that your body was designed to eat that? How about some Kellogg’s Coco Krispies with some pasteurized chocolate milk and a Pop Tart? Does that seem natural to you? But, you love your Campbell’s chicken noodle soup with some Ritz crackers and some Smucker’s Jelly on your white bread with Skippy’s Peanut Butter. Peanut butter and jelly are processed FROM natural things, right? So, if made from natural things they are natural? It depends on the process they go through. All these things are NOT naturally occurring and although a few may be started with raw milk, peanuts and grapes, they are not even close to be natural after they were processed. The milk was destroyed when it was pasteurized. The grapes had all the nutrients destroyed when processed so maybe that is why they add vitamin C or should I say Ascorbic Acid which is not vitamin C.
What is Vitamin C?
A great article to take the time to read: Natural Whole Food Vitamins: Ascorbic Acid Is Not Vitamin C: Source: http://www.thedoctorwithin.com/
The high fructose corn syrup is poison to your body and it is far from natural. The Pringles, Coco Krispies and Pop Tarts are Non-Foods. The margarine you put on the pop tarts is plastic. Can you see that our bodies don’t want, and is not designed to live and produce energy from, these UNNATURAL THINGS?
You might say, well I don’t eat that stuff. I eat at Burger King, McDonalds and Pizza Hut. I would seriously look into the ingredients, preservatives and toxins that are added to these so called foods. Then, you tell me if the ingredients are natural and beneficial to your body. I think you will see that they are NOT helpful to your body but detrimental and dis-ease causing. Now, many people “eat” like this day in and day out, the SAD diet or (Standard American Diet). And you wonder why your body’s systems that are designed to eat naturally are NOT working correctly? Add on top of that, the fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash that enters your mouth are neurotoxins which compounds the problem.
This has to stop IF you what a healthy body because it is and will take its toll on your health. Then, you add ibuprofen for pain, antacids like Tums for stomach acid problems and wash it down with a Sprite. This is what I see people buying to eat day after day. These poisons accumulate and literally destroy the digestive system of the body which in turn affects the rest of the body’s systems which ALL work together. ALL the systems of the body are interconnected to work and support each other. When one system is compromised, it won’t be long before the rest are also.
The Digestive System
NOTE: I told you I am going to put a lot of responsibility on you to restore YOUR health by stopping the toxins from coming into YOUR body, not mine. I do the things I am telling you to do. I am “practicing what I preach” and am seeing the benefits in my life and the lives of the people I help. Now, that’s scientific – Observation and Repeatability. That is why you’ll hear me say we are doing “clinical studies” all over the world with humans with our G2 Sacraments and seeing consistent results! Because that is exactly what we are doing and I will show you testimonies and how to do it for YOURSELF! Let’s look at the digestive system which to me is where ALL of our problems will start and where 80% of our immune systems defense is designed to stop pathogens.
The Digestive System starts at the mouth, the pie hole, to the anus, butt hole. I wrote it like this to try and help you remember with this type of wording. A lot of people don’t realize that the digestive system is a pipe that goes through your body, BUT is technically NOT in the body! You may say, what are you talking about? Or are you crazy, of course the digestive system is in the body because it is inside! It depends on what your definition of “in the body” is. I believe that when something is “in the body,” it makes its way to the cells of the body which is what we really are isn’t it?
We are made up of 60+ trillion human cells. Whether the cells are heart cells, muscle cells, brain cells, liver cells etc., that is what makes up the living body, the living cells. For me to consider something “in the body” it has to be adsorbed, enters the blood and is reaching or feeding the human cells after passing through the liver. When the blood from the digestive system enters the portal vein system, it enters the liver to be cleansed and then that blood is sent to feed the cells. That is when I believe whatever entered the mouth enters the body when it leaves the liver.
Note: I believe that 90% of the dis-ease of the body starts in the digestive system! When this system is degraded, compromised and even destroyed the rest of the body’s systems fail which in turn leads to chronic or lifetime, dis-ease of the body. And yes death because ALL the systems will eventually fail. Pay attention to this information; it can literally save your life and “restore health” to you if you heed the warnings and guard this system.
The Digestive system is made up of the alimentary canal and accessory digestive organs. The alimentary canal is considered outside of the body because it is open to the external environment at each end (mouth, anus). The accessory digestive organs include the tongue, teeth, gallbladder, salivary glands, liver, and pancreas. The walls of the small intestine absorb the digested nutrients into the bloodstream. The blood delivers the nutrients to the rest of the body and when it reaches the cells then it is affecting them, which in turn affects the whole body. The last section of the large intestine is where the waste products of the digestive process which include undigested parts of food and older cells from the GI tract lining are evacuated from the body. This waste hasn’t reached the cells and has been expelled before it could affect the cells. The digestive process is made up of steps as far as we know. We DO NOT know what is going on at the molecular and atomic levels no matter who tells you they do. We do know that these six steps are what has been observed and repeated in bodies throughout the history of mankind. We just don’t know everything about what is going on completely though so always keep this in mind. Just provide what the body was designed to use naturally and the body takes care of the rest!
Note: All of Creation, as well as the body, is complex so we don’t have to be.
Six Digestive Processes
The process of digestion involves six steps:
- Ingestion – is the act of taking food into the digestive tract. In short, ingestion is eating.
- Propulsion – is the manner in which food is moved through the digest tract. This includes swallowing and peristalsis. Peristalsis is the main mean of propulsion and involves contraction and relaxation of muscles surrounding the organs. Its main purpose is to squeeze food through the GI tract (a small amount of mixing occurs also). Peristalsis is so strong that you would continue to digest food even if you were upside down.
- Mechanical breakdown – includes chewing, mixing-food with the tongue, stomach churning, and segmentation (constrictions in the small intestine). Mechanical breakdown increases surface area which increases absorption. Segmentation mixes food with digestive juices in the small intestine which also increases absorption.
- Digestion – is the chemical breakdown of food. It involves a series of steps, but the main idea is that enzymes are secreted into the alimentary canal (GI tract) by accessory digestive glands and the gall bladder that aid in the breakdown of food molecules.
- Absorption – is the uptake of end products of digestion into the blood or lymph through the walls of the GI tract.
- Defecation – eliminates whatever is indigestible and not absorbed through the GI tract out of the body through the anus as feces.
The major parts of the digestive system:
- Salivary glands
- Small Intestine
- Large Intestine
- Accessory digestive organs: liver, gallbladder, pancreas
Note: I want to ask you LOGICAL questions as we go through the steps of digestion to make you think about what you are putting into your mouth and how the body reacts every step of the way. If the things you are eating are natural, then the body responds the way it is designed to respond. But, if you are NOT eating the things it is designed to digest, then it WILL respond in a different manner which can put the body in a state of “dis-ease.”
Let’s start with the mouth – the first step of the digestion process. I will try to just cover the basics of the mouth because there is so much going on in the mouth. Digestion starts in the mouth by taking the first bite of “food”. I emphasized word food to make you think.
Question: What if the “thing” you have allowed in your mouth isn’t REAL food? Does the body react the same?
The saliva enters what you are eating as you chew. It starts the process of breaking it down into a form your body can absorb and use.
Question: Do you want what you just put into your body to be absorbed?
The mouth has its own flora made of up of good and bad bacteria just like the intestines. The good bacteria actually protect our teeth and gums. There are some bacteria, however, that we'd rather do without, since they cause tooth decay and gum disease. Streptococcus mutans is the bacteria you've probably heard the most about. It lives in your mouth and feeds on the sugars and starches that you eat.
Question: If what you are eating destroys the good bacteria then what would be the outcome?
The mouth also has a defense system comprised of T-cells and B-cells that will “take note” of what is coming in and record it. See how smart your body is? Designed or evolved? I included the following information so you can see the different types of defense cells we have throughout the body. Depending on the severity, these cells respond to invaders and in a healthy body to keep these enemies at bay, but, the opposite is true in an unhealthy body or “dis-eased” body.
The Immune System - in More Detail
The immune system is one of nature's more fascinating inventions. With ease, it protects us against billions of bacteria, viruses, and other parasites. Most of us never reflect upon the fact that while we hang out with our friends, watch TV, or go to school, inside our bodies, our immune system is constantly on the alert, attacking at the first sign of an invasion by harmful organisms.
The immune system is very complex. It's made up of several types of cells and proteins that have different jobs to do in fighting foreign invaders. In this section, we'll take a look at the parts of the immune system in some detail. If you're reading about the immune system for the first time, we recommend that you take a look at the Immune System Overview first (see link below).The Complement System
The first part of the immune system that meets invaders such as bacteria is a group of proteins called the complement system. These proteins flow freely in the blood and can quickly reach the site of an invasion where they can react directly with antigens - molecules that the body recognizes as foreign substances. When activated, the complement proteins can:
- trigger inflammation
- attract eater cells such as macrophages to the area
- coat intruders so that eater cells are more likely to devour them
- kill intruders
This is a group of immune cells specialized in finding and "eating" bacteria, viruses, and dead or injured body cells. There are three main types, the granulocyte, the macrophage, and the dendritic cell.
The granulocytes often take the first stand during an infection. They attack any invaders in large numbers, and "eat" until they die. The pus in an infected wound consists chiefly of dead granulocytes. A small part of the granulocyte community is specialized in attacking larger parasites such as worms.
The macrophages ("big eaters") are slower to respond to invaders than the granulocytes, but they are larger, live longer, and have far greater capacities. Macrophages also play a key part in alerting the rest of the immune system of invaders. Macrophages start out as white blood cells called monocytes. Monocytes that leave the blood stream turn into macrophages.
The dendritic cells are "eater" cells and devour intruders, like the granulocytes and the macrophages. And like the macrophages, the dendritic cells help with the activation of the rest of the immune system. They are also capable of filtering body fluids to clear them of foreign organisms and particles.
Lymphocytes - T cells and B cells
The lymphatic system
The receptors match only one specific antigen.
White blood cells called lymphocytes originate in the bone marrow but migrate to parts of the lymphatic system such as the lymph nodes, spleen, and thymus. There are two main types of lymphatic cells, T cells and B cells. The lymphatic system also involves a transportation system –
lymph vessels – for transportation and storage of lymphocyte cells within the body. The lymphatic
The lymphatic system feeds cells into the body and filters out dead cells and invading organisms such as bacteria. On the surface of each lymphatic cell are receptors that enable them to recognize foreign substances. These receptors are very specialized – each can match only one specific antigen.
To understand the receptors, think of a hand that can only grab one specific item. Imagine that your hands could only pick up apples. You would be a true apple-picking champion – but you wouldn't be able to pick up anything else.
In your body, each single receptor equals a hand in search of its "apple." The lymphocyte cells travel through your body until they find an antigen of the right size and shape to match their specific receptors. It might seem limiting that the receptors of each lymphocyte cell can only match one specific type of antigen, but the body makes up for this by producing so many different lymphocyte cells that the immune system can recognize nearly all invaders.
T cells come in two different types, helper cells and killer cells. They are named T cells after the thymus, an organ situated under the breastbone. T cells are produced in the bone marrow and later move to the thymus where they mature.
Helper T cells are the major driving force and the main regulators of the immune defense. Their primary task is to activate B cells and killer T cells. However, the helper T cells themselves must be activated. This happens when a macrophage or dendritic cell, which has eaten an invader, travels to the nearest lymph node to present information about the captured pathogen. The phagocyte displays an antigen fragment from the invader on its own surface, a process called antigen presentation. When the receptor of a helper T cell recognizes the antigen, the T cell is activated. Once activated, helper T cells start to divide and to produce proteins that activate B and T cells as well as other immune cells.
|The killer T cell is specialized in attacking cells of the body infected by viruses and sometimes also by bacteria. It can also attack cancer cells. The killer T cell has receptors that are used to search each cell that it meets. If a cell is infected, it is swiftly killed. Infected cells are recognized because tiny traces of the intruder, antigen, can be found on their surface.
The B lymphocyte cell searches for antigen matching its receptors. If it finds such antigen it connects to it, and inside the B cell a triggering signal is set off. The B cell now needs proteins produced by helper T cells to become fully activated. When this happens, the B cell starts to divide to produce clones of itself. During this process, two new cell types are created, plasma cells and B memory cells.
The plasma cell is specialized in producing a specific protein, called an antibody, that will respond to the same antigen that matched the B cell receptor. Antibodies are released from the plasma cell so that they can seek out intruders and help destroy them. Plasma cells produce antibodies at an amazing rate and can release tens of thousands of antibodies per second.
When the Y-shaped antibody finds a matching antigen, it attaches to it. The attached antibodies serve as an appetizing coating for eater cells such as the macrophage. Antibodies also neutralize toxins and incapacitate viruses, preventing them from infecting new cells. Each branch of the Y-shaped antibody can bind to a different antigen, so while one branch binds to an antigen on one cell, the other branch could bind to another cell - in this way pathogens are gathered into larger groups that are easier for phagocyte cells to devour. Bacteria and other pathogens covered with antibodies are also more likely to be attacked by the proteins from the complement system.
The Memory Cells are the second cell type produced by the division of B cells. These cells have a prolonged life span and can thereby "remember" specific intruders. T cells can also produce memory cells with an even longer life span than B memory cells. The second time an intruder tries to invade the body, B and T memory cells help the immune system to activate much faster. The invaders are wiped out before the infected human feels any symptoms. The body has achieved immunity against the invader.
Although rather long and complex, our presentation is just a glimpse of the immune system and the intricate ways in which its various parts interact. Immunity is a fascinating subject that still conceals many secrets. When the immune system is fully understood, it will most likely hold the key to ridding humankind of many of its most feared diseases.
Question: What if the T-cells aren’t working correctly or aren’t being produced sufficiently to stop these pathogens? Or the B-cells? The macrophages? The granulocytes? Killer cells?
Well, you might say the saliva is an acid that can take care of it then. You might be right but, what if the saliva production is down?
NOTE: Trying to alkaline the mouth is not possible or very smart. And trying to alkaline the stomach which NEEDS a pH of 2.0-2.5 to breakdown certain proteins, one being “Gluten”, is dangerous to say the least. Plus, this acid bath of the stomach KILLS, neutralizes, dissolves and eliminates pathogens. In fact, this part of the immune system of the body is 80% of the body’s immune system. Guard it with your life because your health is at stake if you don’t!
An Observation: The mouth's defenses do a good job when dealing with natural organic material but artificial and synthetic toxins can attack, weaken and even destroy its capabilities!
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of the stomach in regard to defending the body from pathogens or invaders! What entered the mouth has been chewed and saliva added to it to start the “breakdown” and even some of the pathogens might have been dealt with at this time. I believe the mouth notifies the stomach to what is coming and might even signal the stomach to reject it in the form of vomiting if need be. Gurgling of the stomach is a signal that the stomach is now empty and the muscles are contradicting to let you know, as well as the stomach, acid is preparing to dissolve the food. It also kills the majority if not all of the bad guys as well as bring the pH way down to a pH of 2.
There isn’t much that can survive in an acid bath of Hydrochloric acid with a pH of 2!
In fact, if you took hydrochloric acid at a pH of 2 and put it on a wooden table, it would burn a hole in it! This is why the stomach has a mucous lining to protect itself from this VERY Strong and caustic acid. It is amazing how the body creates the acid in the first place. Watch these videos and you tell me if this is amazing or not:
- Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) Production In The Stomach Animation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-X1lB_s2gc
- Hydrochloric Acid Production of the Stomach HD Animation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKuJJ3Ucgkw
- Parietal Cell: Gastric Acid Production: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhB7WNJVg3U
NOTE: This is one of the simplest of processes the body does, and look how complex it is. The deeper scientists look in the processes of the human body, the more complex it becomes and the less they know!
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out.” Romans 11:33
Let me continue with the what is happening with the food or so-called food that you ate.
The food that is starting to digest from the mouth goes down the esophagus to a valve or flap called a cardiac sphincter muscle that relaxes and allows the food to pass into the stomach.
Here is a good video explaining this process: Stomach (Mucous Cells, Chief Cells, Parietal Cells, G Cells): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7wTeakwo_g
Capillaries are in the stomach that do absorb some things like alcohol, caffeine and aspirins which are sent to the liver. These substances are not in the main circulatory system as of yet until it is released from the liver. Here is a good diagram:
As you can see, there is little absorption from the stomach and NO absorption of protein, fats and carbohydrates. That takes place in the small intestines and the large intestines. The pH in the stomach is highly acidic and with a very low pH. Proteins like “gluten” need a pH of 2. That is very strong acidity folks!
Question: If the acid of the stomach doesn’t reach this pH will you break down all the proteins?
NOTE: Digestion of proteins in the stomach is crucial for cells that are built of amino acids that come from the breakdown of proteins.
Two of the substances secreted by the stomach, HCl (hydrochloric acid) and pepsinogen, interact to create pepsin, an enzyme that plays a very important role in protein digestion. The process that takes place when proteins are disintegrated by the enzymes is called hydrolysis.
The factors listed below determine the period of time required by the enzymes to breakdown the proteins:
- Concentration of the enzyme
- Quantity of protein to be disintegrated
- Acidity of the stomach and food
- Temperature of the food
- Time of the day when the food is ingested
- Antacids or other substances that may inhibit digestion (Alkaline substances?)
Hydrochloric acid is used for breaking the bonds between the proteins. Next, the proteins are disintegrated into amino acids, which are molecules that play very important roles in metabolism, cell production and DNA creation. Pepsin, the gastric enzyme mentioned before, represents the single protease capable of digesting collagen, a fibrous protein that is one of the main constituents of connective tissue in animals.
Question: Will trying to “Alkaline the body” hinder or help digestion?
NOTE: This is VERY important because of the pH of the acid of the stomach is raised then proteins and other things won’t be digested and therefore NOT absorbed which are building blocks of the cells and DNA of the body not to mention many other things!
Please take the time to watch and read this information:

G2Voice Broadcast Video: G2Voice #033 What does the body say about Alkalinity and Acidity? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ymq83sLwcio
This is very controversial among “health nuts” and most are nuts because they listen to skinny people that are starving themselves of key nutrients to be “healthy.” Let me explain. There is a movement today to “alkaline the body.”
Question: Is alkalizing the body possible?
Again, I refer you to the above video and newsletter, but I will explain it here also. People have been told to test their saliva and urine to determine the pH of their body, right? You have heard this I’m sure. Well, it is the furthest thing from the truth. The pH of the mouth or the urine isn’t telling you anything about the Body’s pH. The blood will not change from a pH of 7.35 – 7.45 no matter what you do! You can test your saliva and 30 minutes later in will be back to where it was around a pH of 6-6.5. It is an acid folks! You can even think about eating a certain food and the pH will change in your mouth to prepare itself to start breaking down food with antacid! The pH of urine is telling you what is coming out of the body, not circulating in the body! The body is getting rid of alkalinity not the opposite. So, it is telling you nothing! In fact, most of the areas of the body are acidic. Let’s look at some of these areas:
Here are some FACTS about the pH level of different parts of the Human body.
The Human Body’s blood is slightly alkaline, (7.35 – 7.45 pH). ALWAYS!
• Saliva is a weak acid and has a pH of 6-7
Note: The following pH levels are when food is present.
Upper stomach, (Fundie), has a pH of 4-6.5 for 30-40 minutes
• Lower stomach has a pH of 1.5-4.0 for 1-3 hours
• Duodenum has a pH of 7.0-8.5 for 30-60 minutes
• Small intestines has a pH of 4-7 for 1-3 hours
Note: The small intestines are 4 to 6 pH except when you eat something and when the food enters the small intestines, the pancreas releases an enzyme that changes the food to alkaline (above 7) to be “up taken” into the Portal Venous System then to the liver. Then, the pH will change back to acidic as it goes through the small intestines. The bacteria in the flora produce acid as well as Hydrochloric acid and bile salts breaking down the chime.
Large intestine has a pH of 4-7.0 for 10 hours to several days.
• The normal vaginal pH is 3.8 to 4.5.
Note: During menstruation, the bleeding causes the pH in the vagina to rise to help create a friendlier environment for semen, which is slightly alkaline, so when the period stops the woman is fertile for only 1-3 days after end of period and the vagina isn’t as acidic as normal.
The normal values for pH in liquefied semen to be between 7.2 and 8.0.
• The normal pH range of tears was 6.5 to 7.6; the mean value was 7.0.
• Human muscle tissue is a pH of 6-7.
• Human Skin Our skin has a thin, protective layer on its surface, referred to as the acid mantle. This acid mantle is made up of sebum (free fatty acids) excreted from the skin's sebaceous glands, which mixes with lactic and amino acids from sweat to create the skin's pH, which ideally should be slightly acidic – at about 5.5.
- Your DNA is an Acid!
- The colon is acidic!
- Tears are slightly acidic!
- Bile: Its function is to aid in the digestion of fats in the duodenum. Bile is composed of bile acids and salts, phospholipids, cholesterol, pigments, water, and electrolyte chemicals that keep the total solution slightly alkaline (with a pH of about 7 to 8).
• Our cells run on Acids, The KREBS cycle or the 2nd step in cell respiration produces citric acid, malic acid, pyruvic acid, and generates our ATP that fuels our cells for energy!
• Gluconic acid detoxifies our body and is made in the Liver
• Urea Acid protects us from Alkaline Ammonia build up that kills very fast!
• The mouth also contains many bacteria that produce acids; also to start the breakdown of food as well as enzymes.
NOTE: Don’t be afraid of acidity. It is how the Creator designed the body to work and protect itself! The ONLY time your body is alkaline is when you are dead and decaying! That is why the center of cancers are alkaline.
This whole “belief” is NOT based on science but maybe was started and promoted by the cancer society and the AMA and the rest of the medical mafia! Poor cancer patients are told to do the cancer diet when they NEED protein and fats to feed the body what it needs to heal. The health nuts that try to “alkaline the body” are slowly killing themselves by denying the body the things it needs – carbohydrates do very little for the body as you will see as we go on.
Question: Is it logical and within the parameters of how the body was designed to try to alkaline the stomach acid that needs to be a strong acid with a low pH?
Let me give you an example: Doctors, and by the way pay attention to the next chapter, “Don’t ask your doctor anything about health or nutrition,” say that you have acid reflux because of too much acid in your stomach, right? WRONG! So, the doctor prescribes an antacid to neutralize the acid in your stomach to give you relief. What is really happening is this. The food in the stomach is putrefying because there isn’t enough stomach acid to breakdown the food. The pressure or gas from the putrefying undigested foods builds up and pushes open the cardiac sphincter muscle that closes after the food passes and goes up the esophagus and you burp. It is just the opposite of what the doctor tells you, as it is most of the time! They are trained wrong and they can’t know what they haven’t learned! In fact, the curriculum that is written for them in medical schools are written by the pharmaceutical industry! I will get more into this in the next chapter.
I give people suffering from “acid reflux” hydrochloric acid 30 minutes before they eat three times a day and it goes away as well as have them eat protein which encourages the stomach to produce more acid not less!
Let me get back the how the stomach works NATURALLY and not some fable!
What happens to the food in the stomach?
As the food is dumped into the stomach there should be a strong acid awaiting it to break it down along with strong enzymes. The acid is needed because of the importance of protein to the human body. From proteins come amino acids which are the building block of cells as well as cholesterol. That’s right we need cholesterol. 80% of our cells are made of cholesterol which we will talk about later when we get to the liver. Carbohydrates in the form of vegetables aren’t really broken down in the body very much because we don’t have 4 stomachs like cows. Vegetables are made of cellulose and we aren’t designed to digest much of it. In fact, the most benefit from vegetables is “roughage” not nutrition. Vegetables high in cellulose, an indigestible carbohydrate, will also result in increased intestinal bulk. Maybe good to feel full but really not helping you stay healthy by giving the nutrients you need. I eat raw and steamed veggies but the VERY dark ones are my favorite such as: broccoli, spinach and dark lettuce. Most of my diet is protein and fats through animals and dairy. I will get into a good diet later in this book. Back to the stomach which is essential in sustaining health. The stomach is the 2nd stop after the mouth in the “outside of the body” tube called the GI tract or Gastrointestinal tract. Yes, I spelled it that way on purpose. Trying to keep all you grammatical geniuses paying attention! Pay attention to the message not the delivery!
So, by ONLY eating lots of fruits and veggies you aren’t really helping the body nutritionally or helping the stomach produce more HCL or stomach acid. In fact, you are training and teaching your stomach to produce less because the things that come into your stomach are broken down without a low pH, except the cellulose, of course, which only 20-30% are digested the rest goes out the butt hole!
Again, the body works a certain way no matter what you think or have been told by skinny, malnourished friends, family and health nuts! The stomach is the best defense you have because 80-90% of all the problems start there if not working correctly.
What do I mean about not working correctly?
Ok, here is a perfect scenario that you want taking place in your stomach when you eat.
- Food comes into the stomach and the pH is around 2-2.5
- The proteins are being broken down
- 90% of the pathogens are killed by this strong acid. Even some toxins can be destroyed or neutralized by a strong stomach acid.
- The food turns into chime or broken down organic material
- The top sphincter is closed as well as the bottom sphincter
- When the chime reaches a consistency for absorption and that is when time and acid concentration tell the lower sphincter called, the pyloric sphincter, or valve, is a strong ring of smooth muscle at the end of the pyloric canal which lets food pass from the stomach to the duodenum. It controls the outflow of gastric contents into the duodenum.
- When it leaves the stomach and enters the duodenum or some call it the 2nd stomach the chime is temporarily alkalized to allow the blood to absorb it and not affect the pH of the blood. Going from a pH of 2-2.5 to 7.35-7.45 is a big difference and with this happening it would turn the blood acidic and kill you quickly! Isn’t this an amazing design the Creator did for us?
Let’s stop there for now. First, let me give you a totally different scenario.
- Food comes into the stomach and the pH is 4 and protein isn't being broken down enough to be absorbed.
- Many pathogens are killed or neutralized BUT some survive. One bacteria that many people around the world suffer from is a bacteria called H. pylori. If this bacterium isn’t killed, then it burrows into the mucus lining and hides as well as other pathogens and toxins not neutralized by the weak acid.
- The food isn’t turning into ALL chyme or chymus (the semi-fluid mass of partly digested food that is expelled by the stomach), but is rotting or putrefying and there is a lot of gas or pressure on the sphincter muscles to open.
- Eventually, the pressure FORCES the lower sphincters to open and even the upper sphincter, causing acid reflux. Then the undigested food passes into the duodenum along with pathogens and toxins that were not destroyed.
Question: Would this scenario cause the body to be in a dis-eased state?
What is Hypochlorhydria?
This is a dis-ease called Hypochlorhydria, or low stomach acid. It is a commonly overlooked problem that is linked to other problems like stomach cancer, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis and much more like the H. pylori bacteria, gastritis to mention a few as well as Malabsorption of B12. It is well known that the body uses stomach acid in order to absorb B12. Iron deficiency (anemia). A tendency to Candida dysbiosis or bacterial dysbiosis [imbalance in the natural flora of the gut].
Also, hypochlorhydria is directly related to;
- Irritable bowel syndrome,(IBS), IBD, Leaky Gut and Crohn’s dis-ease.
- PERIODONTAL DISEASE
- CANDIDA (yeast overgrowths) / Rectal Itching /
- Food Sensitivities such as GLUTEN,
- ALLERGIES, and ASTHMA
- Iron Deficiency / Various types of ANEMIA – particularly Vitamin B-12
- Mineral Deficiencies in general /
- OSTEOPOROSIS Chronic Fatigue / Adrenal Fatigue (FIBROMYALGIA) / Lethargy / Apathy /
- DEPRESSION Dry Skin, Dry Hair, Cracked Nails
- Severe Morning Sicknes
- Spontaneous Recurrent Abortion (INFERTILITY)
- Autoimmune Diseases of all kinds, including HYPOTHYROIDISM
Question: Can you see why I say that the stomach and the pH of the acid in the stomach protect you?
I cover in more detail hypochlorhydria here: G2Voice Broadcast #044: What is causing IBD, IBS, Leaky Gut and Crohn’s dis-eases? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rw5RAFmuPiU&t=3s
Please take time to read this newsletter also: http://mmsnews.is/mms-newsletters/415
Ok, let’s keep following the chyme in the perfect scenario of how digestion works.
Once the chyme is alkalized in the duodenum, it is pushed into the small intestines where most of the absorption into the portal vein system or uptake takes place. There is an exception and that is fat. Once the fat enters the stomach, enzymes in the digestive tract called lipases begin their hard work. Fat or lipids are absorbed in the small intestines walls by the lymphatic system where they are sent before entering the blood.
The chyme or digested food is ready to be absorbed by the intestines and enter the small intestines and is absorbed in the blood through the capillary system of the portal vein or venous system. I like to look at this process as the roots of a plant nourishing the plant. The plant is fed by the root system in a similar way the intestines use the villi for the uptake of nutrients to the body. If the root system of a plant is dis-eased it WILL affect the whole plant. This is exactly what is happening in the human body! I read the following article and thought I would include it here:
Root Hair Cells of Plants & Cells of Villi in the Small Intestines
The function of root hair cells is to increase the ability to take in water and mineral salts so as to provide the plant with the nutrients that it needs. It has adaptations to ensure that it can fulfill its role to the best of its ability. Root hair cells have tiny hairs which are long and this creates a larger surface area that in turn leads to a greater absorption rate for water for example. A larger surface area also speeds up the rate of diffusion for the root hair cells, hence a more effective transportation goes on in the plant. The process of Active Transport also happens within the cells and this process involves water and minerals traveling from a lower concentration to a higher concentration. The minerals that travel from a lower concentration stem from the soil which the roots of the plant are in and the minerals of a higher concentration is from the plant itself. This is because the plant needs to get the maximum nutrients it can to carry out photosynthesis well. If all these processes happen, homeostasis will then be able to take place since we can observe water regulation by the root hair cells of a plant, meaning that it is their role to maintain a constant internal environment for the plant cells.
The function of the villi is also to increase the surface area for absorption in our small intestines, thus the small intestine is covered by millions of villi which have four layers and extend about 1 mm into the lumen. Once the molecules of amino acids, glucose etc. cross the epithelium that the small intestinal villi cover, these molecules diffuse into a capillary network and into our bloodstream. However, some molecules (mostly fats), are not transported into the small capillaries but into the lymphatic vessel.
Therefore, we can see that the similarities of root hair cells and the villi is that:
- Both absorb food in the simplest form (minerals and salt), albeit from different sources.
- Both have adaptations to ensure a greater surface area for absorption of water and nutrients.
- Both ensure successful homeostasis through Active Transport and diffusion respectively.
There is also a gut flora that is plentiful with bacteria good and bad. I mentioned that the human body has 60+ trillion human cells BUT we have living in us 600 Trillion bacteria! Bacteria is nothing to be scared of because bacteria only cause problems when the organism they live in changes. Look at how our gut flora helps us:
The gut flora protects against invaders in all kinds of ways. Just to name a few:
- They strengthen the physical defenses of the gut wall. Your body is protected from potential pathogens by a layer of cells lining the gut (epithelial cells) and by chemical barriers (for example, the gut is relatively acidic, which makes it hostile to invading bacteria). Gut flora activates immune functions in the epithelial cells: if they couldn’t communicate with your gut flora, those epithelial cells wouldn’t be able to do their job, and the physical barriers to infection would be compromised. Gut flora also increases the chemical barriers to infection by affecting the pH of the gut environment.
- They compete with potential pathogens for space and food. If your healthy gut bacteria are already using all the resources available, there’s nothing left to feed the bad guys.
- They regulate inflammation and the inflammatory immune response. Inflammation is complicated, but regulating it is incredibly important if you want an immune response that reacts without over-reacting.
- They produce various antimicrobial substances. For example, one species produces an antibacterial substance that fights Gram-negative bacteria (gram-negative bacteria include E. coli, Salmonella, and several different types of bacteria that cause respiratory infections).
“The intestinal microbiota helps in proper development of the host immune system, which in turn regulates the homeostasis of the microbiota.”
So, improving the health of your gut flora will improve your immune function, which will make your gut flora even happier. It’s really a win-win.
Usually the ratio is 70-80% GOOD to 20-30% BAD. If this gets out of balance it is called Dysbiosis.
After absorption of the nutrients and fats, the food then enters your large intestine (colon) for further digestion, absorption of water and, finally, elimination of undigested food.
NOTE: The colon does absorb the very finest particles to feed the nerves and doesn’t go through the liver but directly into the blood!
Let’s look at a different scenario like we did above by following the chyme that was forced into the duodenum to the small and large intestines. I believe this scenario is happening to many people worldwide daily as you will see from the different types of problems this scenario is causing, one being dysbiosis which I will cover in detail below.
This chyme that wasn’t completely broken down because of the lack of stomach acid, hypochlorhydria contains undissolved foods, could have bad bacteria, parasites and probably toxins not killed or neutralized while in the stomach.
The things that have been allowed to pass through the stomach will now start to affect the flora in the gut by killing the good guys and allowing the bad guys to gain ground! This is caused by the bad bacteria that has been added to the bad guys camp BUT even more the toxins, which I believe are #1 cause of the dis-ease of the body, are now present and are wreaking havoc by killing the bacteria that protects and continues the breakdown of food. The toxins also can STOP absorption of nutrients and destroy the lining of the intestines and the villi, as well as the absorption of fats, into the lymphatic system. Also, the worst thing would be these VERY TOXINS are being now allowed into the portal venous system that goes directly to the LIVER!
This toxic partially digested food then passes into the large intestines causing problems all the way until the body can eliminate the remaining toxic waste!
Question: You think this situation will cause the Digestive system to be corrupted and malfunction and ultimately the body to be in a state of dis-ease? I think you do now, right?
I know that the above scenarios are a simplistic explanation of what is happening to a VERY complex system but now I want to focus on the dis-ease called Dysbiosis. The reason we have this problem occurring all starts from the stomach and what is getting through to the intestines.
NOTE: I think the lack of stomach acid is a main cause BUT some of the toxins are coming through no matter how strong the stomach acid is. Again, the biggest problem that we are dealing with in regard to health is TOXINS! TOXINS! TOXINS! Stop putting toxic substances in your mouth or allowing them to be injected into your body where you by-pass the digestive system – your body’s best defense!
What is “Dysbiosis”?
Dysbiosis (also called dysbacteriosis) is a term for a microbial imbalance or maladaptation on or inside the body, such as an impaired microbiota.
"Dysbiosis refers to a bacterial imbalance in the gut, which can compromise the immune system. It has been said that dysbiosis plays a part in many conditions such as: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue. The main causes of Dysbiosis are believed to be antibiotics and pesticides along with other environmental and dietary factors." Source: http://LeakyGut.com/
Does this sound like the cause of dysbiosis is toxins?
“The main causes of Dysbiosis are believed to be antibiotics and pesticides along with other environmental and dietary factors."
Bacteria is on the surface of the skin, inside the mouth, nose and uro-genitary tract, but most live in the small and large intestine. More than 1000 different types (known as species) live in your large intestine alone. There are all different species, many are helpful, but some could pose a threat to health if their numbers get out of hand. When they are out of balance it is called “Dysbiosis.” It’s that balance that’s important.
What do beneficial bacteria in the gut actually do?
- Break down undigested food.
- Neutralize some of the harmful by-products of food breakdown.
- Aid the absorption of nutrients.
- Produce certain vitamins such as Vitamin K, needed for blood clotting.
- Make life uncomfortable for harmful bacteria by competing for food and controlling levels of oxygen and acidity in the gut so that the living conditions favor beneficial species.
- Because the majority of the immune system is located in your gut, beneficial bacteria also help support the body’s natural defenses.
"An imbalance in the intestinal bacteria that precipitates changes in the normal activities of the gastrointestinal tract or vagina, possibly resulting in health problems." Source: Farlex’s Online Medical Dictionary
"Antibiotics are by far the most common medications prescribed for children. Recent epidemiological data suggests an association between early antibiotic use and disease phenotypes in adulthood. Antibiotic use during infancy induces imbalances in gut microbiota, called dysbiosis. Here, we synthesize current knowledge linking antibiotics, dysbiosis, and disease, and propose a framework for studying antibiotic-related dysbiosis in children. We recommend future studies into the microbiome-mediated effects of antibiotics focused on four types of dysbiosis: loss of keystone taxa, loss of diversity, shifts in metabolic capacity, and blooms of pathogens."
Just two months ago, the Journal of Gastroenterology (Gut Microbiota and the Development of Pediatric Diseases) chimed in on this same topic. Follow along to see how critical it is that you take care of your infants properly – from the very moment they are born. "A huge number of highly diversified microbes live inside and on the human body. They are collectively named microbiota. Many diseases have been linked to an aberrant microbiota in the intestines (dysbiosis) or other parts of the body. Neonates, (a newborn - explanation mine) are born sterile, but many parts of their bodies are colonized by various microorganisms thereafter. The composition of the gut microbiota is dynamic, with drastic changes occur during infancy and childhood. It is not surprising that the gut microbiota is related to milk ingested by babies. But, all milk is not created equal.”
Note: Stay away from pasteurized dairy!
This study goes on to talk about one of the many ways that Dysbiosis affects children (Maturation of Immune System Responses). When infants/children are not exposed to large quantities of bacteria, the subsequent, "low gut microbiota diversity in early infancy is associated with increased risk of subsequent allergic diseases." I could name all the various diseases they mention, but you will find them scattered throughout this post. But it's not just children and infants who are at risk.
The March 2015 issue of BMC Immunology (Systemic Effects of Gut Microbiota and its Relationship with Disease and Modulation) discusses some of the more common situations associated in one way or another with Dysbiosis such as C-SECTIONS, DECREASED VITAMIN PRODUCTION, AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES, IBS, IBD, DEPRESSION, CANCER, BRAIN-RELATED PROBLEMS, OBESITY, and INCREASED INTESTINAL PERMEABILITY. They discuss solutions to said problems using things like PROBIOTICS, PREBIOTICS, and FMT. This study is a great overview for those who are interested.
Link Between Digestive System and Dysbiosis
The gut, or GI tract, has three major roles: the absorption of nutrients, the digestion of foods while converting food into vitamins, and the prevention of toxins and pathogens from entering your body. There are approximately 500 species of bacteria that make up “the gut flora.”
The beneficial bacteria are essential for good digestion and the proper maintenance of the intestines. The most common classification of “good bacteria” will begin with the names “Bifidobacteria,” or “Lactobacillus.”
When the gut flora is balanced, it is called “orthobiosis,” which again is a term introduced by Dr. Metchnikoff in the early 1900s. He considered dysbiosis so serious that is also said, “death begins in the gut.”
The issue here is that not all of the friendly organisms in the gut flora are “friendly.” In fact, when there is an overgrowth of bacteria, parasites, fungus, yeast, or other organisms, it can lead to dysbiosis.
What Causes Dysbiosis?
In general, women are two to three times more likely to be diagnosed with a digestive disorder than men. In the U.S., it is estimated that over 30 million people suffer from an imbalance in the GI tract.
However, that number is probably a lot higher considering that there are so many potential causes of gut dysbiosis. The following are some of the dysbiosis causes:
- Antibiotic use: Antibiotics seem to be prescribed for everything these days, especially when they are not needed (i.e. in cases of the common cold, the flu, bronchitis, most sore throats, and many ear and sinus infections). Every time antibiotics are taken, they kill all the bacteria – even the “good” kind. Over prescribing antibiotics will also cause antibiotic resistance, which means the antibiotics don’t only kill the “good bacteria,” but they may not even help in cases of bacterial infections.
- Use of other drugs: Proton-pump inhibitors and antacids are designed to block hydrochloric acid production in the stomach, but that acid is the first line of defense against microbes that enter the body with food. When that acid is blocked, the body no longer defends against the “bad microbes.” The overuse of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) also inhibits the growth of the “good bacteria.”
- Fermentation: Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a carbohydrate intolerance condition induced by bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine, large intestine, and stomach. Any carbohydrate will ferment by the “bad bacteria” and produce toxic waste products as a result.
- Chronic stress: Chronic stress will increase hormone levels, and this also highly impairs the immune system, which creates an environment in the GI tract that is susceptible to dysbiosis.
- Poor diet: A poor diet is another major factor in dysbiosis. Low-fiber diets, high-fat and high-protein diets, and diets high in sugar and processed foods can slow down gut motility, and also often lack nutrients necessary to nourish and repair the digestive organs, including the GI tract. Candida is a type of yeast that lives off sugar and processed foods, which highly disturb the balance of organisms in the body. Gluten sensitivity is also a factor in dysbiosis.
- Environmental factors: Environmental factors that influence dysbiosis include contaminated food and water, exposure to manufactured chemicals or toxic metals, the presence of fungus or mold in the home, and living in a foggy or damp climate.
Signs and Symptoms of Dysbiosis
- There are several dysbiosis signs and symptoms linked the condition. Here are the intestinal dysbiosis symptoms you will often experience:
- The common recurring digestive issues will include chronic diarrhea, heartburn, chronic constipation, bloating, belching, abdominal pain, frequent indigestion, bad breath, foul-smelling stools, undigested food in the stool, or nausea after taking supplements
- Weight loss due to malabsorption, or weight gain
- Food allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances
- Sugar cravings, including alcohol
- Rectal or vagina itching
- Weak of cracked fingernails
- Iron deficiency
- Loss of libido and infertility
- Chronic sinus congestion
- Bladder problems like interstitial cystitis
- Hyperactivity like behavioral and learning disorders
- Mental fog
Other Health Conditions Associated with Dysbiosis
- Gut dysbiosis can lead to bowel and intestinal lining changes, which then increases the permeability of the intestine. This results in leaky gut syndrome – also called increased intestinal permeability.
- Basically, the lining of the intestines and bowel loses its integrity, which opens the door to parasites, viruses, bacteria, and also undigested food molecules. The aggravated immune system will also become unstable, and may attack the body and even lead to autoimmune diseases. The following are some of the other conditions associated with gut dysbiosis:
- Common digestive conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, lactose intolerance, gastritis, and inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
- Chronic intestinal infections like candida or parasites, thrush, and chronic vaginitis, or bacterial vaginosis
- Depression or anxiety
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Interstitial cystitis
- Hyperactivity like behavioral and learning disorders
- Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
- Skin conditions like acne or hives
- Restless leg syndrome
- Diabetes, obesity, and thyroid diseases
- Multiple sclerosis
How to Diagnose Dysbiosis
Dysbiosis is often suspected when the patients have a food intolerance or allergy, unexplained fatigue, malnutrition, neuropsychiatric symptoms, breast or colon cancer, or inflammatory, autoimmune, or gastrointestinal disorders.
Prevention of Dysbiosis
- It is always better to prevent a disease or condition from starting in the first place. The following are a few gut dysbiosis prevention methods:
- Eat an overall healthy and clean diet that contains lots of green leafy vegetables, organic meats, and totally avoid processed foods.
- Avoid alcohol or extremely limit your intake to once every few months. All forms of alcohol contain acetaldehyde, yeast, and other ingredients that harm the balance of bacteria and other organisms in the GI tract.
Avoid antibiotics, and other drugs like proton-pump inhibitors, antacids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). All of these drugs inhibit the growth of “good” bacteria in the GI tract and rest of the body.
It is important to remember that what you put into your body can have a major impact for your GI tract and your gut bacteria. Also, dysbiosis can occur at other parts of the body besides the gut.
Candida and dysbiosis can also spread through sexual intercourse. That is why both partners should be treated when dysbiosis, candida, or other bacterial infection is suspected. Also, healing dysbiosis is very individual and what may work for one person may not work for another.
It is important to work with a natural health practitioner like a naturopathic doctor or holistic nutritionist that specializes in candida or dysbiosis treatment.
Just remember that although Dysbiosis (an imbalance in the normal ratio of the bacteria that live both in you and on you) is basically caused by ANTIBIOTICS, non-Antibiotic drugs that have ANTIBIOTIC PROPERTIES, and ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS. It is fed (perpetuated) by a DIET HIGH IN REFINED CARBS. Are you beginning to see why America provides the perfect environment for Dysbiosis to spread through our citizens like a wildfire?
Are you chronically ill? Do you struggle with an array of CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY DEGENERATIVE DISEASES? Do you suffer with any of the hundreds of different forms of AUTOIMMUNITY? Do your doctors have NO IDEA what's causing your problems? Does it seem like they are chasing your symptoms like your neighbor's dog chases its tail?
Unfortunately, even if they can put an "official" name on your problem, the standard medical approach is not likely to solve it. Because of a massive and ongoing paradigm shift, the average treating physician and his RELIANCE ON BIG PHARMA is being left in the proverbial dust. Much of this shift is occurring in the field of GUT HEALTH.
WHAT DOES THE CURRENT SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE SAY ABOUT DYSBIOSIS? or STAY AWAY FROM ANTIBIOTICS AS THOUGH YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT(BECAUSE IT DOES!).
"As clinicians know, it takes a long time for research to sort of percolate through the expert and clinician community and guidelines are really important in that process, and it takes a long time for things to get on the radar screen of a guideline committee. I think this is an issue whose time has come and it's time to look at the evidence, and different people will have different takes on the evidence, as always."
Dr. Dr. Jan Blustein, MD, PhD, of the New York City's Wagner School of Medicine in an article discussed below (Dr. Sanjay Gupta). Mark my words, this information will continue to be ignored (percolate is a much gentler word) in order to prescribe drugs.
Unfortunately, even if they can put an "official" name on your problem, the standard medical approach is not likely to solve it. Because of a massive and ongoing paradigm shift, the average treating physician and his RELIANCE ON BIG PHARMA is being left in the proverbial dust (to understand why, look at the quote at the top). Much of this shift is occurring in the field of GUT HEALTH.
Despite the fact that we've known for nearly two decades that 80% of your body's Immune System resides in your Digestive Tract, in the form of bacteria we refer to as your MICROBIOME, nothing is being done about it in the average doctor's office. In fact, if you weren't a regular reader of my site, you might not know much more about this phenomenon than the drivel you see on Yahoo or any of the monthly women's magazines. Unfortunately, if you don't get this figured out, your children will be worse off than you – far worse. Why? Not only are our collective diets absolutely pathetic, we are killing off our Microbiomes in monstrous fashion – often times from birth.
Today we are going to discuss something called DYSBIOSIS. According to the definition provided by Leaky Gut do com, "Dysbiosis refers to a bacterial imbalance in the gut, which can compromise the immune system. It has been said that dysbiosis plays a part in many conditions such as: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ankylosing Spondylitus, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue. The main causes of Dysbiosis are believed to be antibiotics and pesticides along with other environmental and dietary factors." Farlex's Online Medical Dictionary defines Dysbiosis thusly, "An imbalance in the intestinal bacteria that precipitates changes in the normal activities of the gastrointestinal tract or vagina, possibly resulting in health problems."
Just remember that although Dysbiosis (an imbalance in the normal ratio of the bacteria that live both in you and on you) is basically caused by ANTIBIOTICS, non-Antibiotic drugs that have ANTIBIOTIC PROPERTIES, and ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS, it is fed (perpetuated) by a DIET HIGH IN REFINED CARBS. Are you beginning to see why America provides the perfect environment for Dysbiosis to spread through our citizens like a wildfire?
Note: There is even a bacterial overgrowth problem called “SIBO”.
Between low stomach, hypochlorhydria, bacterial imbalance, dysbiosis and toxins being ingested and allowed to enter the digestive system, the body is becoming in a dangerous state of dis-ease. This is causing all the aforementioned problems in the body that will end up affecting the liver which in turn affects the blood, thyroid, kidneys brain etc.!
NOTE: The Liver is so important. That is why it is called the LIVER, you need it to LIVE!
I will cover in the NEXT chapter just on the liver and its functions, as far as we know, and how to cleanse it. Enjoy chapter five, “You need a clean Liver to live healthy.”
Learn how to cleanse your liver. You won’t regret it and your body will love you for it!
May the Lord guide you into all truth!
