I won’t go into it the details of it because that’s up to you. If you choose to take the red pill, like in the Matrix, Google “Food Supply America”. Then go down the rabbit hole and do your research.
When the body is malnourished of essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy fats and biome-friendly carbohydrates, it goes into STORE mode. It also goes into HUNGER mode and you want to keep gobbling until that nutritional deficiency need gets met.
To add insult to injury, without proper amino acid intake (in the form of complete protein) you end up depleted of serotonin. When you are depleted of serotonin you want CARBS. So you eat empty carbs like you can’t get enough and still end up starving and malnourished.
Throw in the insulin surge that occurs when you ingest refined carbohydrates, which LOVE to transport and TRAP all the food you eat into your fat cells…and you have a perfect storm.
Blood sugar sky rockets, which essentially caramelizes on the surface of your cell membrane in the form of AGES (Advance Glycosolated End Products), and you AGE quickly. Also, when you have a lot of fat on your body, your body hoards all of its toxins in the adipose cells instead of flushing them out. So it’s like you are wearing a full-body toxin suit.
Lastly, your stem cells in your bone marrow do not work well, both because of these nutritional deficiencies, and also as a side effect of the abundant fat cells on the body.
Yes, it’s all very complicated. Yes, every person has their own story and health profile and genetic code to contend with. HOWEVER– the starting point of the solution is very simple.
Start with food. Start with addressing the nutritional deficiencies.
My favorite book on the subject is literally called “It Starts with Food”. It’s a smart, no BS, easy-to-follow book that I always have sitting in my clinic lobby. You can find this excellent book on my website HERE.
This is not rocket science. There is no reason to complicate it.
