Modern World Threats
THE MAJOR cause of chronic degenerative diseases arising from imbalance, deficiencies or depletions are from exposure to high or constant cumulative levels of toxicity from our food and environment. In our urban and fast food culture adopted from the western countries, these kind of lifestyles have embedded into the lifestyle habits of modern living. The toxins now are less identifiable as they come from seemingly benign sources that we come to take for granted as safe and acceptable. This will lead absorption problems which often cause hormones to be imbalanced and mineral deficiencies. Toxicity and hormonal problems will also cause depletions in our body’s natural store or micro minerals and proteins essential to healthy cellular functions. Some of the problems are:
Poor Insulin production and function leading to receptors on the cell resisting uptake of glucose – leading to Insulin resistant Diabetes.
Poor fat metabolism, when fats absorbed into the blood without being converted to fatty acids – leading to high Cholesterol level, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis etc.
As toxins buildup, cell division is corrupted or deteriorates – leading to development of cancer and to early ageing.
The liver and the pancreas reduce its enzyme productions – leading to imbalance and feed back signals to the Small Intestine.
The lymphoid system (Peyer’s Patch System) located in the Small Intestine reduces its function – leading to lowering of overall immune system, reduced possibility for the B-cells to produce anti-bodies.
The B-cells start production of anti-bodies against body own proteins – leading development of autoimmune diseases such as Rheumatisms, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple sclerosis (MS).
Reduced possibility to take up normal ingredients in the food as minerals, vitamins, Phytonutrients, proteins – leading to malnourishment on the cells.
You are what you CAN absorb! Everyone’s life depends on it….
“The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food” – Hippocrates, Father of Medicine
