There are many different factors that can affect one’s health. When these underlying stressors go unaddressed, healing cannot take place.

Here are the main reasons you are not feeling well:

  1. Immune Challenges
    • Viral – A viral disease (or viral infection, or infectious disease) occurs when an organism’s body is invaded by pathogenic viruses, and infectious virus particles (virions) attach to and enter susceptible cells.
      • Flu
      • Cold
      • Warts
    • Bacterial
      • Strep throat
      • Staph infections
    • GMOs – A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or another organism whose genetic makeup has been modified in a laboratory using genetic engineering technology. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
    • Parasites – Parasites are organisms that live in and feed off a living host. There are a variety of parasitic worms that can take up residence in humans. Symptoms of an intestinal parasite infection may mimic symptoms one would see with digestion, skin or any number of other issues.
      • Tapeworm – Usually due to drinking water contaminated with tapeworm eggs or larvae. Raw or undercooked meat is another way tapeworms can find their way into people.
      • Flukes – You can get them when you drink contaminated water among other things.
      • Hookworms – The most common way to make contact with this type of roundworm is to walk barefoot on soil infested with hookworm larvae.
      • Trichinosis worms – The most common way humans get trichinosis is by eating undercooked meat that contains the larvae.
    • Fungus – These types of skin infections are caused by a fungus and are most likely to develop in damp areas of the body, such as the feet or armpit. They can also be found in the digestive tract.
      • Athletes foot – Contagious fungal infection that affects the skin on the feet. It can also spread to the toenails and the hands.
      • Ringworm – “Ringworm” is a misnomer, since a fungus, not a worm, causes the infection. The lesion caused by this infection resembles a worm in the shape of a ring.
      • Oral thrush – It’s normal for a small amount of C. Albicans to live in your mouth, without causing harm. When your immune system is working properly, beneficial bacteria in your body help keep C. Albicans under control. But if your immune system is compromised or the balance of microorganisms in your body is disrupted, the fungus can grow out of control. You may develop an overgrowth of C. Albicans that causes oral thrush if you take certain medications that reduce the number of friendly microorganisms in your body, such as antibiotics.
  2. Chemicals
    • Formaldehyde – found in laundry & dish detergents, bath soaps, body washes, furniture, pet products, new carpets, gas stoves, hair treatments.
    • Glyphosate – found in produce, meat and packaged foods.
    • Radiation – found in natural sources like rock, soil & atmosphere. It is also found in man-made sources like medical tests & treatments, nuclear power plants, electrical products.
    • Plastics – direct toxicity, carcinogens, disrupt the endocrine system which can lead to cancers, birth defects, immune suppression and developmental problems in children.
    • Fragrances – Since there is no FDA mandate requiring companies to list their scent formulations, many chemicals can hide behind the term “fragrance.” When you see “fragrance” on a label, it can mean nearly anything, but it typically means toxic chemicals. Research by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics links the chemicals in perfume to short term memory loss, central nervous system disorders, and even severe depression due to altering the brain’s biochemistry. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has long admitted that poor air quality, poisoned by chemicals, does contribute to neurological ailments including fatigue, dizziness, migraines, and forgetfulness.
  3. Metals
    • Aluminum – Found in vaccines, antacids, dyes, baking mixes, processed cheese, deodorants, foil, cookware, shampoos, cosmetics, lotions, cans, soy products. Although aluminum-containing over the counter oral products are considered safe in healthy individuals at recommended doses, some adverse effects have been observed following long-term use in some individuals, and can possibly cause Alzheimer’s.
    • Mercury – found in vaccines, thermometers, scientific instruments, streetlights, advertising signs, fish and shellfish. It can affect cognitive thinking, memory, attention, language, fine motor skills. It can cause tremors, emotional changes, insomnia, neuromuscular changes, headaches, changes in nerve responses.
    • Arsenic – found in pesticides, wood preservatives, copper, lead alloys, glass, veterinary medicines & some rice. Long-term exposure to arsenic in drinking water can cause cancer in the skin, lungs, bladder, and kidney. It can also cause other skin changes such as thickening and pigmentation.
    • Lead – found in and around homes including paint, ceramics, pipes, plumbing, gasoline, batteries and cosmetics. Exposure to high levels of lead may cause anemia, weakness, and kidney and brain damage. Very high lead exposure can cause death. Lead can cross the placental barrier, which means pregnant women who are exposed to lead also expose their unborn child. Lead can damage a developing baby’s nervous system.
    • Uranium – found in rocks, ocean water, granite counters. Known to cause kidney damage & cancer.
  4. Foods
    • Wheat – causes gut inflammation, increases intestinal permeability, increases vulnerability to gut autoimmunity.
    • Dairy – when conventionally processed it can be linked to prostate cancer, early puberty, can cause sinus congestion, digestive problems and aggravates irritable bowel
    • Sugar – instantly inflames the entire body and weakens the immune system making you more susceptible to disease.
    • Artificial Sweeteners – Many consumers report headaches, dizziness, rashes, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, and digestive problems after ingesting artificial sweeteners. These side effects could build up over time and cause serious long term diseases with regular consumption of these processed sugars.
    • Commercial & saturated fats – increase heart disease risk, cause weight gain.
    • Allergens – if you have an allergy or sensitivity to a certain food and continue to eat it, it will cause inflammation in the body.
  5. Scars
    • Collect nerve energy and can interfere with many systems of the body.
  6. Electromagnetic radiation from cellphones and computers
    • 5G is here
    • Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.
