Environmental Toxicity: Detrimental To Long-Term Optimal Health

Have you ever wondered why we get sick or if we are taking the appropriate steps to optimal health? Most of us are not degreed scientists, medical doctors or holistic practitioners; we can easily become overwhelmed by the different schools of thought.

It is very important to become pro-active with your health, ask questions, research the Internet, ask for clear explanation of lab test reports and be very, very persistent! It is not
the Doctor’s full responsibility to solve your health problems; you need to play an active role in the solution to the problem. The doctor is not in your body so you need to give as much information as you can remember. By being pro-active, your health challenges will be treated for the root cause and not just the symptoms.

There are 6 fundamental defects that cause chronic disease such as coronary artery disease, cancer, arthritis, Parkinson’s, asthma, food sensitivities and much more. These defects are responsible for the lack of optimal health in sick people and depletion in the resources of the healthcare system worldwide.

The number one cause of chronic illness is “acidemia” which is the body’s critical PH or balanced chemistry. If the body’s PH is around 5.5, then the body is very acidic creating bone loss due to free calcium excess, chronic inflammation and connective tissue degeneration. This snowball affect will lead to many different health problems as time goes on. The optimal PH for the body is alkaline, 7.0. “Free radicals,” which breakdown the normal function of the body, cannot breed in an alkaline environment. “Free radicals” in an acid environment will create oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress is a function of the environment. The pesticides in our food and water, toxic chemicals in our work environment, heavy metals such as mercury silver fillings in our mouth, and plastics lead to chronic illness. Oxidative stress is the breakdown of connective tissue that can lead to hernias, bleeding gums, varicose veins and so much more.

It is very important to discuss with your doctor the possibility of the 6 fundamental defects including “acidemia,” free excess calcium , chronic inflammation, connective tissue degeneration, oxidative stress and anaerobic metabolism in playing a detrimental role in your health. Treatment for “free radicals” is extensive. Anti-oxidant therapy is only part of the answer to chronic disease and getting to the root cause.

I wish you all great success in your quest for better health. Good luck!
