The most current medical research consistently shows that optimal health depends almost entirely on our environmental exposures. Our genes are the blueprint of how God creates us, but the expression of some of those genes can be activated or silenced based on the balance of their environment.
If our cells have adequate levels of essential elements and no significant toxicities present, the environment is “in balance.” As a result we feel well, have abundant energy and recover quickly from acute illnesses or injuries. On the contrary, if the cellular environment remains “out of balance” because of missing essential elements and/or many toxins present, we feel tired, have low energy and eventually develop “dis-ease” within the cell.
Over time, if the essential elements decrease and the toxic load increases you can see how the net imbalance results in chronic cellular inflammation and progresses into systemic diseases like hypothyroidism, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, depression or anxiety, insomnia and obesity.
We now live in a world where daily toxicity exposure is our “new normal.” The air we breath, the water we drink, and the food we eat contain numerous environmental toxins and less of the essential elements our cells need to maintain a healthy balance. So how do we stop chronic inflammation and reverse the disease process?
