Leaky Gut Syndrome

Reversing-Autoimmune-Disease

Imagine it’s 400 years ago and you’re sick… turns out it’s the same thing that just killed your sister and her youngest son.

Fortunately, the Doctor knows exactly what to do. It’s something they’ve been doing for years, centuries actually. They even tried it on your family before they lost the battle…

He looks at you with stern confidence and gives you the “prescription:” Bloodletting.

That’s right, bloodletting.

It’s exactly how it sounds – patients were pricked, sliced, scraped, and cut to allow blood out of the body to “cure” diseases. That sounds crazy right?!

But at the time, bloodletting was commonly used to treat tons of conditions, like seizures, headaches, fevers, pneumonia, and to lessen any pain in the body. This practice actually killed people!

The use of bloodletting was pervasive until studies by scientists and doctors like Pasteur, Koch, and Virchow came along and showed the benefits of other treatment methods.

Now, we look at bloodletting like something crazy we used to do before we “knew better.”

But where might history be repeating itself?

Are there things we do today that someday will seem “crazy,” just like bloodletting? I look at treating autoimmune disease with long-term use of powerful immune suppressing drugs (which have a ridiculous list of side effects such as infection, cancer, cardiovascular disease, bone disease) like bloodletting.

For those that know me, reversing autoimmune disease is a passion project of mine. Not only did it almost kill me 7 years ago… but it actually killed my Mom back in 2005.

I firmly believe treating autoimmune disease with strong immune suppressing drugs will fall away to better treatment as our researchers continue to advance our knowledge and medical practices. One day we’ll look at drugs that turn off the immune system as a crazy thing “before we knew better.”

Why?

Because I believe we’re close to something better… a “Natural Vaccine” if you will – a possible treatment that reverses autoimmunity and prevents it from starting in the first place. What’s better… this “Natural Vaccine” is already inside you, and it has everything to do with new research I cover in this post.

But first, know this: it’s probably not what you think… [click to continue…]

Excuse me, but your guts are leaking…

“Leaky Gut” sounds pretty weird right? I’ll never forget the first time I heard the term back when I was struggling with chronic diarrhea and low energy…

The first thing that popped in my mind was, “Ewwww, does that mean my poop is leaking into my body?”

Now that I’ve spent years understanding this condition… the funny thing is that’s not too far from the truth. But the thing that worries me the most about this condition is that it’s a growing epidemic that most people don’t even know they’re suffering from.

It can masquerade as fatigue, anxiety, depression, digestive symptoms, weight problems, and other serious conditions…

It’s been found in association with chronic diseases including: asthma, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel, kidney disease, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and heart failure…

And even with all the latest technology and over 10,000+ research papers on it, this hidden epidemic is still often referred to as the “Disease Your Doctor Can’t Diagnose…”

If you or loved ones are struggling with chronic illness, like my family and I did, this might be the most important thing you’ll ever read. [click to continue…]

Our bodies are made up of cells, which are made up of biomolecules consisting of things like mitochondria, nucleus and other organelles.

A couple levels deeper, we find out these are made of atoms. And atoms are made up of subatomic particles like protons, neutrons and electrons. These subatomic particles fascinatingly cannot be destroyed or created, which leaves us with some particularly interesting connections…

Like we might be made up of atoms from other dead humans, or trees or who knows…

Like we might be all connected at some very deep universal level…

Connections in the body aren’t nearly as hard to wrap your head around.

At first glance, it might seem unlikely that stomach issues, skin issues and inflammatory joint autoimmune diseases are related. But if you’ve been following us for any length of time, then it’s likely not a surprise.

And if you can begin to see the interconnectedness of the symptoms, I bet you won’t be surprised to see the same kind of changes help all of them. [click to continue…]

Why are we so passionate about Leaky Gut Awareness?

The bottom line is this: fixing the gut will impact just about every other area of your body.

There are millions of people in the world struggling right now with things like low energy, depression, infertility, or even heart disease who have no idea how much their gut health influences these conditions.

I’m not arguing that the gut is the root cause of all things… but what I do know is that it plays a huge role in how all the systems in your body function. Show me someone with a broken gut and I will show you someone with multiple health complaints other than their GI symptoms.

That’s why fixing your gut is the first step to overcoming chronic illness.

And in today’s videos, we’re going to dive into fixing the gut and how that impacts various other systems in your body, like your immune system, fertility, and thyroid function. [click to continue…]
