Did you know there are drug metabolites and endocrine disrupters (fluoride) in our tap water, neurotoxic chemicals (Round-up and food dyes) in the food we eat , and there are carcinogenic compounds (formaldehyde derivatives & flame retardants) in our common household products we use on a daily basis?

When we habitually use Advil and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, take antibiotics, use oral contraceptives like birth control or other hormones, make poor food combining choice, excessively drink alcohol, and live very stressed lives, we increase the gaps within the intestinal wall also known as the lamina propria. These gaps in the tight junctions allow bacteria and undigested proteins to enter your bloodstream and react with our underlying immune system.
Did you know that 80% of your immune system is surrounding your intestinal wall? When these undigested proteins and bacteria seep through that barrier, the body reacts by mounting an inflammatory cytokine response in the bloodstream since i...
