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.

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!

Heavy Metals, Mold and Hidden Infections Graphic

Heavy Metals, Mold and Hidden Infections. Take 10 minutes to read the following and potentially save yourself from years of suffering and medical bills.

Let's talk about the element Mercury first:

Silver amalgam fillings have been used for more than 150 years and contain 50% mercury. Mercury is very toxic to our bodies. And inside our mouths, those fillings continue to off gas mercury, particularly, when we drink hot liquids like coffee and tea. I don’t know about you, but I had plenty of silver fillings and over the years, I drank a lot of cups of coffee and tea exposing myself to mercury fumes many a morning.

And guess what, the mercury gets stored long term in our cells, especially our brain cells and this could be underlying many of our chronic degenerative diseases and memory issues. And even if you’ve had all your amalgam’s removed, chances are, you still have mercury stored in your cells and brain.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop there, Mercury is still in some of our vaccines, especially the flu vaccine, (as is Aluminum, another heavy metal that does not belong in our bodies). If you are getting vaccines, you may want to consider doing a heavy metal detox afterward, to protect yourself from some of the heavy metal toxins you are exposed to in the vaccines.

Mercury is also in our oceans due to coal burning. Sprinkled in the air and landing up in our oceans has caused our seafood to be high in mercury. When we consume seafood, we absorb mercury from the fish, and mercury causes long term health challenges for both us and for the healthy bugs in our gut, (called our microbiome). This can create long-term health challenges and disease.

Next, let’s talk about Lead:

Up until 1978 Lead was in paint, and also in gasoline.

When we are exposed to Lead, and our body can’t detoxify all of it, it gets stored in our bones. When a woman is pregnant, she will release some of her bone, which releases stored Lead. That Lead, ends up in her baby. Ultimately, we end up passing Lead down from mother to baby, and according to Dr. Pompa, (from True Cellular Detox) it passes through 4 generations before it stops. That could be 80-100 years of Lead toxicity in your family!

A little aside, the environmental working group examined the cord blood of 200 babies and found that:

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

It’s been said that Cancer rates in children have risen 67.1 % since 1950 (No wonder there).

Did you know that as we go through puberty, we also lose bone and therefore as teenagers we can experience the symptoms of Lead toxicity too. We've all heard about growing pains in teenagers, especially when we spurt up really quickly. I've often thought that was an indication of a mineral deficiency, but now I'm wondering if some of this pain could be due to Lead poisoning as it is being released from our bones.

Now let’s talk about Glyphosate:

So, to make matters worse, we are not only exposed to the above heavy metal toxins (Mercury, Aluminum and Lead), we are now also exposed to Glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in the pesticide, Round-up. Glyphosate increases the toxicity of the heavy metals because glyphosate puts holes in your intestinal wall and kills off your good bacteria, allowing larger particles and heavy metals to cross the protective gut barrier (this process is known as Leaky Gut) This allows toxins to go deeper into the bloodstream, tissues and brain. (See my prior article on Glyphosate)

And now let’s talk about Mold:

Biotoxins from mold can create many unexplainable symptoms. So if you have many unusual, unexplainable and/or unrelated symptoms, think possible mold toxicity. Please note, this is not a mold allergy and it is not tested for through an allergy test. This is a specialized urine test, checking for specific mold toxins. If you think you may have mold toxicity, email me to learn more.

About 25% of the population is very sensitive to mold. You may have lived, or worked in an old house or building that had mold in it. But even new buildings can have mold in them because all you need is a water source that leaks, like a sink, bathtub, toilet, washer or dishwasher. Many mold toxic individuals have unknowingly been carrying mold biotoxins in them for years, causing a chronic erosion of their health. Toxic mold is debilitating and requires specific treatment for both your body and your home or workplace.

Hidden Infections:

Hidden infections are oftentimes the thing that keeps us from getting our lives back. They can be difficult to detect and difficult to get rid of.

Hidden infections from our teeth:

These infections can be chronic infections from our teeth, root canals and cavitations (where we had a tooth pulled). Root canals harbor anaerobic bacteria that no antibiotic or herbal killer can reach because they hang out deep in the microtubules that remain, even after the root was extracted.

Cavitations in the jaw left behind from tooth extractions (like wisdom teeth), will often leave a space that breeds infection. The anaerobic bacteria from the infection slowly work their way into the bloodstream causing major immune issues and can even trigger autoimmune disease.

Lyme Disease:

Lyme disease is perhaps even more misunderstood than heavy metal and toxic mold disease, and goes undetected in countless so-called unexplainable illnesses. For years western medicine didn't recognize Lyme disease as a real illness and the treatment was simply a round of antibiotics. If you didn't get well then you didn't have Lyme, it was "all in your head."

Today, we know it is in fact real, but still very difficult to detect and treat. Lyme frequently occurs with co-infections….bacteria like Babesia and Bartonella. These guys are nasty, opportunistic and hard to kill. Lyme, like mold, is a Biotoxin illness. Lyme is a stealthy, intelligent survivor that can morph and switch from a spirochete form, which can drill deep into your tissues, to a cyst that drugs and herbs can't kill. And if it were not hard enough to kill, it will hide and protect itself from the immune system by cohabiting in and around mercury. It appears that many people do not get well after years of Lyme treatment because they do not address the heavy metal toxicity issue, or the co-infections. True Cellular DetoxTM works with detoxifying heavy metals and infections like these from your body and assists you in getting well.

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.
