Let’s play an “imagine” game for a moment.
Let’s say you went to the doctor complaining of these symptoms:
- Memory loss
- Mental confusion
- Flu-like symptoms
- Mucus membrane irritation
- Eye and skin inflammation
- Muscle and joint pain
The doctor would probably do bloodwork and other tests, but what if they all came back negative?
Well, you’d probably walk out with at least one prescription to mask the symptoms, such as an anti-inflammatory, a pain reliever or maybe even an antidepressant!
But there is a sneaky cause of ALL these symptoms that I bet my bottom dollar you (or your doctor) haven’t even thought of.
Here’s the scoop:
Your internal creepy crawlies
Most of us deal with various sources of internal toxins—it’s almost impossible not to.
But when the average person hears the word “toxins,” things like pesticides, chemicals, pollution, food dyes and preservatives usually come to mind.
However, a big source of your inner toxicity is from microorganisms!
Yes, these creepy crawlies inside of you can stir up illness in two ways. First, just like you, microorganisms have waste products too, and their “number one and number two” can make you sick!
In addition, your body may also have an allergic reaction to the proteins in the body of the microorganism itself.
Here are the most common buggers to look out for:
Bacteria: Bacteria contain and produce toxins that can damage your tissues, nerves, immunity and endocrine function (hormones).
Parasites: Toxic substances released by parasites destroy your tissues and migrate throughout your body, burrowing themselves deep into your organs.
Viruses: In addition to a variety of illnesses that viruses can cause themselves, they also trigger your body into producing toxic chemicals in response to their presence. They can also alter the way your cells function, which in turn can compromise your health in countless ways.
Yeasts: Yeasts can cause infection and hypersensitivity reactions in the body. They also produce numerous toxins that cause both physical and mental symptoms.
Molds: Some molds produce mycotoxins that can cause bleeding and are potent liver toxins. They can also cause bruising, rashes, vertigo, convulsions, heart swelling, brain cell destruction, and even death.
Fungi: Fungi are very potent allergens and generate toxic substances as they are trying to convert your healthy tissues and cells into nourishment for them.
Show the creepy crawlies who’s boss
You can take the bull by the horns and fight back at dangerous microorganisms, as well as minimize their harmful effects on you!
Here are some very effective strategies:
Get enough vitamin C and zinc. A healthy diet of real foods is a must, concentrating on lots of fresh vegetables and leafy greens. Supplement with a complete multi-vitamin and mineral formula like Super Core to make sure all your nutritional bases are covered or if your diet is dicey.
Get regular exercise. Yet another great reason to get off the couch and into action—exercise helps your body eliminate toxins! Even just brisk walking can be extremely helpful. Be sure to get your doctor’s OK first, especially if your only exercise of late has been 12oz. curls or sprinting from the couch to the refrigerator and back during a commercial.
Sit in a sauna. Saunas can be very helpful with eliminating toxins. Many facilities such as fitness clubs, resorts, and wellness centers provide sauna services.
Avoid refined carbs and sugars. These foods feed the harmful organisms in your gut, especially yeasts.
Beef up your population of helpful organisms. Your beneficial gut bacteria fight back at dangerous microorganisms, but they can only do so when there is a strong enough “army” of them. A full-spectrum probiotic formula like Super Shield can help make sure your intestinal flora balance is where it needs to be to protect you against dangerous inhabitants and support strong immune function against viruses and bacteria.
Keep your digestion running smoothly. Your colon has the job of eliminating toxins, but if your digestive process is not-so-great (this is especially true if you’re prone to constipation), those toxins can remain inside of you and even be reabsorbed into circulation. Eat simpler meals comprised of proteins and veggies OR starch and veggies—NEVER protein and starch together. Super Shield is a good idea here too because its friendly bacteria can help your body break down starches and fiber as well as ease constipation.
Drink filtered water. Nothing is more helpful for your liver and kidneys (your main organs of detox) than to drink at least eight 8oz. glasses of filtered water a day. Note I said filtered and not tap water—tap water contains additives and contaminants such and chlorine and fluoride which will make you even MORE toxic.
See how much better you can feel when you take charge of your internal inhabitants!
To your health,
