What Are Prebiotics and Why Do We Need Them

groats-herbs

Prebiotics are to probiotics what fertilizer does for gardens. They are the foods that nourish the healthy bacteria and help them to “set up shop” and thrive in your GI tract. Incorporating foods that are high in prebiotic fibers into your diet is an essential part of the journey toward a balanced microbiome.

By definition, prebiotics are nondigestible fiber compounds that pass (undigested) through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and stimulate the growth and activity of advantageous bacteria that colonize the large bowel by directly nourishing them and helping them thrive.

Let’s start by talking about some statistics.

According to Stephanie Senoff, a Senior scientist at MIT:

"If the present scale of growth continues apace,
1 out of every 2 children
in the United States
Will be on the autism spectrum.
by 2032. . ."

Whether you think vaccines are good for our children or not, here are some alarming statistics….

The FDA, our protective body, allows for what they consider safe levels of Aluminum for a newborn 8-10lb. baby.

Consider this. In an IV drip, 30 mcgs of Aluminum over a 24 hour period is the limit the FDA considers safe.

But in one Hep B vaccine, there is 250 mcgs Aluminum, which is typically given 12 hours after birth.

By 2 months they get 5-8 more shots. Therefore, in a matter of seconds, they get 1200-2000 mcgs of Aluminum. Compare this to what they consider a safe limit of only 30 mcgs of Aluminum over a 24 hour period.

This is 100’s of times more than what's considered safe by the FDA, our protective body. Does this make sense to you? Am I missing something here?

When you look at all the toxins that children are exposed to, even before birth, Stephanie Senoff’s prediction that by 2032. . .

1 out of every 2 children in the United States will be on the autism spectrum, will start to make sense to you.

So here is what scientists discovered from examining the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies, meaning they were exposed to these toxins prior to birth through contact with their mother’s bloodstream.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) examined the cord blood of newborns and found…

They began life exposed to as many as 287 of the 413 toxic chemicals in the study.
An average of 200 toxins was found per baby.
180 chemicals found are known to cause cancer.

Did you know that Cancer rates in children have risen 67.1% since 1950? Need I say more?

Our parents and most of us grew up in the “Lead Generation”.
Did you know that...Lead is inherited in utero from mom to baby.
And that Lead turns on “bad genes” associated with many diseases, including obesity and that this lead that passes down from mom to baby can be passed down for 4 generations?

Are we poisoning our children with formula?

Protein isolate, which is made from GMO (genetically modified) Soy, and Soy Lecithin, is loaded with a poisonous pesticide ingredient called Glyphosate… Glyphosate wreaks havoc on our gut lining, causing Leaky Gut, digestive disturbance, allows heavy metals and unwanted pathogens to enter our bloodstream, at the level of our intestines, and seep deeply into our tissues and organs where these toxins and pathogens were never meant to be, These toxins and pathogens cause disease and distress throughout our bodies and our brain.

“We’re feeding this poison to our babies, and
then wondering many of our kids are so sick today?”

“When I was a kid, Type 2 Diabetes was called Adult Onset Diabetes, because children didn’t get it.
Now kids are getting it and at a younger and younger age!”
We have to ask ourselves, why is this happening?

According to the Columbia University School of Public Health: “95% of cancer is caused by diet and the environment” To be clear, this comment wasn’t focused on children but was focused on the entire population.

According to the American Cancer Society's "2014 Cancer Facts & Figures" report:
This year, (2014) statistically, one person will die from cancer every 54 seconds. (Again, this is not specific to children).
And according to the experts, there is something we are doing to cause this.

What I’m telling you may seem very discouraging and alarming and it is not my intention to be a doomsday alarmist. I want to give you hope and some answers.

We need to start by detoxifying our bodies, cleaning up our gut, improving our digestion, decreasing our inflammation and nourishing our bodies with healthy food, good nutrients, clean, pure water and clean air. Although this needs to be done on a global level, we can be successful by starting with our own families first.

Image with Vaccine and Toy

Sometimes vaccines can cause unexpected, long-lasting and severe symptoms. It occurs more often than you think. It happened to William, and resulted in 16 years of severe allergies, pain and isolation.

William, age 18, was excited and getting ready to go off to college! He had his future life planned, filled with fun, excitement and a bright future...One last thing… vaccines.

Although he had never had allergies before, two days after receiving his vaccines, (while eating a piece of watermelon) he found himself unable to swallow or breathe, he was choking and having a severe allergic reaction which required hospitalization.

For days and months after that, things got worse and the severe reactions continued. Within a short period of time, he went from a healthy, athletic physique of 215 lbs. down to just 180 lbs.

Eating raw fruits and vegetables caused his tongue and throat to swell, and he would break out in hives.

For many years epi-pens and allergy shots were his constant companions.

Then finally at age 34, sixteen years later, he discovered True Cellular Detox.

Just three months after starting the program, the severe allergic reactions ceased. William stopped choking on his food and he now leads a normal life.

If you are having severe allergic reactions to food, or if you have had a life challenge that could potentially be vaccine-induced, you deserve to give True Cellular Detox a try!

We now are surrounded by a massive environmental increase in neurotoxins like never before in our history. This level of toxins has created sickness at a cellular level. These toxins are new to our human race and increasing daily. They are shutting down our natural cellular detox pathways and changing our DNA to express disease and many unwanted symptoms such as Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Thyroid dysfunction, Auto-immune conditions, Alzheimer’s, Autism and Cancer.

Why your body is not working like it used to…
Did you know that the strategies, treatments, modalities and detox supplements that worked in the past may no longer be working adequately, clearing out toxins and enabling your body to maintain a healthy state?

Neurotoxins in our environment are making us sick
We now are surrounded by a massive environmental increase in neurotoxins like never before in our history. This level of toxins has created sickness at a cellular level. These toxins are new to our human race and increasing daily. They are shutting down our natural cellular detox pathways and changing our DNA to express disease and many unwanted symptoms such as Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Thyroid dysfunction, Auto-immune conditions, Alzheimer's, Autism and Cancer.
We are now sicker and more toxic than ever before.

Enter the Herbicide/ Pesticide known as Glyphosate
Glyphosate is an example of one of these toxins. It was introduced in the 1970’s as an herbicide/ pesticide into our food supply. It is the active ingredient in Round-up and the #1 used pesticide in the world. It is being sprayed on almost all conventional grains to increase harvest and yield. The amount used on genetically modified organisms (GMOs), (plants that are modified to withstand more of this chemical and not die), can be ten times that of normal crops. Unless you are eating 100% organic, your intake of this chemical is massive.

Glyphosate is no ordinary toxin
When you look at new studies on its damaging effects on the human gut and brain. Since the introduction of this chemical into our food supply, we have seen obesity rates rise at the same level as the chemical’s use. Autism, Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Auto Immune diseases have all increased at the same rate as well.

Glyphosate creates holes in the human gut and shuts down detox pathways
Senior Scientist from MIT, Stephanie Seneff, has shown in studies that Glyphosate creates holes in the human gut, shuts down detox pathways, and is linked to the exponential rise of so many diseases. Dr. Stephanie Seneff has also shown that Glyphosate increases the toxic effects of heavy metals in the brain, giving further explanation of its connection to the rise in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Most countries have banned this horrific toxin, but not here in America.

In general, if you are trying to lose weight and it’s not coming off, it’s probably the foods you love the most that are keeping you fat.

These “toxic” foods may not be the same for you as they are for your neighbor, friends or family members. Everybody’s body is unique.

Many of my patients love dark chocolate, organic dairy products, and organic coffee. Others love bread, potatoes, and healthy organic chips. Many of these products have been labeled healthy, but they also may be the products that are keeping you from triggering your fat burning hormones.

If you know anything about Dr. D’Adamo’s book Eat Right For Your Type, you will know that we are genetically different from one another, depending on where our ancestors came from and what they ate, so one man’s food can also be another man’s poison.

Generally, what I have found is that if you are not getting to your goal weight, you may be eating one of these unknown poisons. Pay attention to what you are eating, and realize that even if a food is “healthy” it may not be healthy for you. It’s the foods that you love most that may be the culprit. Going off that food for a while is a good way to test to see if you have a sensitivity to a food you love. If you find it difficult to go off that food completely, find something else to substitute for it. Within a few weeks to a few months, does your body start to naturally shed pounds without you doing anything else? If so, it’s a good idea to refrain from eating that food.

You’re probably wondering, “does this mean I can never eat that food again?”

No. I don’t believe it does, but going off of it for a few months can make a big difference in your life. Then eating small amounts of it occasionally may be just fine, but I would never go back to frequently consuming it, especially over an extended period of time, and continue to think my body will not return to its former self.

In my office, I use muscle testing of potential food culprits to determine which are the best foods to refrain from consuming. Although this technique may not be 100% foolproof, it’s a great place to start and beats the trial and error method.

Although, If you do use the trial and error method, of refraining from certain foods for several months, when you do return to eating that food occasionally, monitor your weight the next day to see how you are doing. This will give you immediate feedback.

If you’ve harmed your body with foods from the past, there are supplements that will help you heal some of your food sensitivities by healing your gut lining. Many times we develop a condition called “leaky gut” which ultimately creates more food sensitivities. There are ways to heal this condition, but it does take time and discipline.

So, bottom line, if you are trying to lose weight, begin by restricting some likely food culprits and sometimes some unlikely ones.
