According to the National Institute of Health, one in four children is destined for obesity, 70% of adult females and 50% of adult males are overweight.
Presently, 100 million Americans complain of symptoms related to chronic illness and 80% of the industrialized world is taking a prescription medication.
The Surgeon General openly admitted, "most illnesses suffered in the U.S. are preventable or reversible when nutrition and lifestyle are the focus of treatment."
So, what are we saying? We are eating too much and much of it is not being eliminated from the body properly thus causing a plethera of health problems.
"See Signs of Body Pollution". But there are ways to detoxify the body.
Where To Start
The bowel is a primary source of toxicity, allergy and chronic infections. It is necessary to optimize bowel function in order to properly
detoxify the body, assimilate nutrients from our foods, support the immune system and encourage the proper balance of friendly to unfriendly bacteria and yeast

The connection between food and chronic disease is no mystery. Even the Surgeon General openly admitted, "most illnesses suffered in the U.S. are preventable
or reversible when nutrition and lifestyle are the focus of treatment."

an acute immune response in normal circumstances
Where is it?
1. The GI tract
2. The genito-urinary tract
3. The respiratory tract
4. The skin
- Numbers of bacteria increase as you descend thru the
- Lactobacilli (acidopholus) dominate the upper small intestine
- Bacteroides and Bifidobacteria dominate the lower small
intestine and large intestine
- Meat eaters will have a dominance of bacteroides (up
- Vegetarian diet will have about 50% bacteroides and 50%
- Bacteroides are generally benign but they can convert
non- carcinogenic food components into carcinogenic components
(phecopentanes, hetracyclic amines)
- Bifidobacteria don’t have capability to make these
- Red meat eaters are more susceptible to colorectal cancer,
but the cause may not be the meat or lack of fiber, but
the ratio of microflora in the gut.
When supplementing with probiotics, always use lactobacillus
(acidopholus) which can attach to cell wall and is targeted
to upper GI tract. Use biobifidus for targeting the lower
MICROFLORA IMPORTANT FOR NON-IMMUNOLOGICAL DEFENSE AGAINST
Most important feature of microflora defense is spatial
If there is already lactobacillus attached to cell wall,
Candida albicans cannot attach itself to cell wall.
