Three Ways You Are Making Yourself Sick

There are three basic factors or causes for every disease known to man. It doesn’t matter if it’s heart disease, cancer, auto-immune, internal or external symptoms. If you were to address these three things, you could basically live a disease free life. It is possible to have a body that is strong, healthy, pain-free and drug-free. So what are these three causes?

Nutritional imbalances and/or deficiencies.
Toxic accumulation.
Let’s breakdown each category for further insight.


We know the effects of vitamin and mineral deficiencies such as osteoporosis(calcium), scurvy(vit C), pellegra(niacin), Beri-Beri(vit B1). We are all informed by the RDA on vitamin bottles of the minimum daily recommneded doses of the vitamins and minerals needed to prevent those and other diseases.

However, this is the MINIMUM DAILY DOSE. But who wants a body that is operating at the minimum levels of efficiency!? And this is precisely what I am referring to when I talk about vitamin deficiencies. When operating at the minimum levels of efficiency, your body will function minimally, eventually wear out and finally break down. To work efficiently, your body needs the proper nutrients every day. And in America, most of us are not getting them.

Especially not with the Standard American Diet(SAD). McDonald’s anyone? Let’s face it. We are a fast food nation. Food is processed, altered, irradiated, treated with pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, antibiotics and more. The nutrient levels of processed food is negligible at best and down right harmful at its’ worst. There is no way your body is getting what it needs to function properly and to fend off infections and fight diseases.

There is another reason we are not getting the proper nutrients and why most of us are suffering from malnutrition. And that is the state of your gut or your stomach and intestines. Over time, these critical organs have basically become sick, clogged up, overly toxic and are actually now a cause of many of the conditions, diseases and symptoms we experience daily.

So now that we’re symptomatic and don’t feel good, what do we do? Take more drugs, which in turn further deteriorates the normal flora and trillions of “good” bacteria that we need to thrive. There are 10 times the number of bacteria in your gut than there are cells in your entire body. So they are there for a purpose. Not only that, the proportion of “good” to “bad” bacteria is likely even more important.


There are many causes but the #1 cause is antibiotics. They were designed to kill the “bad” bacteria and they do a great job. But they are not selective. They kill all of them. And if you have ever taken an antibiotic, even once(and some live on the stuff) and did not take a good quality probiotic supplement to replenish them, you are deficient. Not to mention using antibiotic hand soaps every day. Make no mistake. What gets on your skin, gets into your bloodstream.


When you think of your immune system do you think of your gut? Probably not. But approximately 80% of all immune tissue cells are found in your gut. It is called GALT(Gut Related Lymphatic Tissue). Now imagine that these immune cells, which are totally dependent and rely on the proper functioning of the “good” bacteria that live there, were to become over-worked. This is exactly what happens. These immune cells become agitated when they are exposed to something called an antigen, such as pet dander, dust, smoke and even certain foods. The immune cells sound an alarm. Your body then mounts an all out war by releasing histamines and alerting your white blood cells and antibodies to attack the “offending’ organism. Unfortunately, they also attack normal tissues along with them, be it in your nose, sinuses, lungs, your joints, your skin or your stomach. Any body site location can be the “battleground” where the war is waged. This is when we take more drugs to: lower histamine release; to impede your immune cells; to dull the pain; to reduce the itchy watery eyes; to clear your throat; to un-stuff your nose.

Actually, the first signs that your body’s becoming toxic and your immune system is overactive and going haywire are: chronic sinusitis and allergies(food or environmental). But we ignore the signs, not recognizing the real cause, and allow it to get worse and worse by merely masking the symptoms. After a while, your immune system becomes overworked to the point of exhaustion. This is when a major illness can now occur
