So, how DO toxins affect our biological systems, leading to disease?
Basically, they cause cellular inflammation by blocking the normal processes of the cell, and in some cases shutting down detox genes. Additionally, cells become blocked from absorbing nutrients, picking up hormone signals, and releasing toxins.
Thus begins the path to disease.
We end up with a suppressed immune system that allows additional biotoxins, heavy metals and infections to invade. Eventually, this leads to auto-immunity issues, where the once-healthy immune system begins attacking itself.
All of this leads to cellular dysfunction, poor energy production and broken cell-to-cell communication. Physical and mental symptoms start to manifest, leading eventually to disease states like metabolic dysfunction, diabetes, heart disease, cancer—and frankly, every other malady.
Next in this introductory series, I will discuss solutions for reversing disease and healing the body by removing cellular interference, and feeding the cells with the vital nutrients they need to restore our life-force powerhouse.
Stay well and I look forward to seeing you in the next article.
