I wanted to touch on a few aspects concerning healing the brain. There are collections of symptoms that, in our day and age, are considered diagnoses (Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lupus,
Epilepsy), but what we often forget to look for is the root cause. It comes down to detoxing metals and chemicals, ridding the body of immune challenges, and repairing the myelin sheath. If it is an autoimmune condition, we look at gut-restoring supplements to heal the gut lining, improve digestion, and balance the microbiome. However, how can we fully recover if we do not handle our environment, clean it up, and discover the contributing factors that continually bombard the brain?
Allergies are typically a symptom of gut dysfunction or the need for a liver detox. When one of your channels of elimination is not functioning at optimum, it can clog the drainage funnel, causing a back-up with the liver. Bowel, liver/kidney, and lymph are at the bottom end of this funnel (listed from the bottom up).
Think of the liver like a bucket. If the bucket is only ¼ full, and you add additional toxins to that bucket, no problem! But if the bucket is full, a small amount will cause it to overflow into the bloodstream, resulting in a histamine response. Allergies.
Did you know that all the cells in your body turn over (meaning they die off, and the body makes new cells)? The small intestine turns over every 2-20 days, the stomach every 2-9 days, colon cells every 3-4 days. You could literally have an entire new gut in 3 weeks! So what would happen if you ate really well for 21 days? What would happen if you not only ate really well, but actually added some herbs and whole food that cleaned everything out and let it rest and heal for 21 days?
#1 Cause of DISEASE = Toxins & The Gut
An unhealthy gut, ignored, leads to disease. Ask me about pretty much any disease, and I can show you how it relates to the gut.
In America, we have overweight people who are malnourished. Think about it. How many times does the average American pick up McDonald's or a hot ‘n ready on their way home from work? An entire meal devoid of nutrients. How many times a week do you eat fast food? Versus how many times per week do you cook for yourself a meal that includes a protein, a veggie and a good quality fat? Add up the numbers. It is eye-opening when you write down everything you consume. Just once per week eating fast food destroys the gut. More than that? You can kiss your health goodbye.
