Prevent and Reverse Lactic Acidosis

Prevent and Reverse Lactic Acidosis

This is blog 6 of a series of 13.

Gaining a good understanding of the step by step mechanism of lactic acidosis is important for you to prevent it and reverse-engineer it if you have it.

The following is a description of how high lactate and a few other chemicals in the blood are the mechanisms of chronic disease.

When your body uses sugar as fuel it releases 5 waste products.(1) One is called lactate and 75% of the lactate is re-used as sugar again in a healthy body. However, the other 25% needs to be cleaned up by the liver and kidneys. If there is a problem with your body’s normal ability to clean itself, the lactate builds up in your blood and now it’s toxic.

Too much lactate and the other wastes crowd out oxygen in the blood which is also bad. Not enough oxygen in the blood to go to the cells is called hypoxia. Your cells need oxygen to survive.

So now the blood is toxic and hypoxic. The cells throughout your body cannot get enough nutrition and oxygen.

The body needs to get the oxygen and nutrition to the cells so it dilates the arteries to increase the quantity of blood to the cells. Also, with more blood flow, it’s easier to remove waste from the cells. This makes sense, doesn’t it?

Here’s how it plays out with an athlete:

Imagine this happening with an athlete sprinting and their muscles fill with lactic acid and burn. Their burning muscles tell them to stop running. They breathe faster and deeper to bring in oxygen and remove waste through their lungs. Their arteries dilate and their pulse goes up to increase circulation. The burning sensation then dissipates because the lactic acid gets removed within 20 minutes in a healthy person. Their breathing returns to normal. The arteries constrict back to normal size.

The chemistry of the blood dilates and constricts the arteries including the tiniest ones called capillaries in order to feed your cells.

In a healthy person, this is a normal response but an unhealthy person (or unfit) already has too much lactate or other chemical wastes in their blood – due to the intake of excess sugar, toxins, or build-up of pathogens. Their blood is no longer getting oxygen and nutrition to their cells. Therefore by doing any exercise they instantly get out of breath too fast which in turn makes their muscles weak and sore.

In an unhealthy person, this lack of oxygen and nutrition to their cells is causing their arteries to be dilated, which means even the little capillaries which are the smallest arteries become engorged with blood and the flow of blood becomes stagnant. This stagnation means that the blood is not feeding these parts of the body, which in turn means these parts of the body are dying. This can be seen in diabetic patients losing their feet. The most common symptoms of lactic acidosis start with muscles such as anxiety/ muscle tightness in the chest, muscle cramping, muscle fatigue, and lack of endurance.

The body has to compensate for this capillary engorgement by making the heart pump harder which makes the blood pressure go up. The stagnant blood flow makes the feet and ankles swell.

With all the preceding actions described above, the cells starve and die. The description is simple but the effects are profound.

Cell death equals tissue death which leads to organ death than body death. This may take decades in a chronically ill person.

Now that you know the mechanism of chronic disease, you just need to learn how to reverse-engineer it.

To learn more about the 3 main areas that are causing chronic illness – Click here to download your free eBook guide “Follow The Physiology Formula”:

A name for this blood and circulation problem is called “Congestion”. The biggest problem is that the cells end up starving. Another blood and circulation problem is the opposite called “Hyperemia” where the blood moves too fast. Either way, the result is the same: the cells starve of nutrients and die.

What happens when muscle cells starve and die from lactic acidosis?

They tighten up, it’s known as rigor mortis.(2)

You have heard of this regarding a dead body. After a few hours, the body is totally stiff due to lactic acidosis. Later the muscle tissues break down and the body becomes limp.

What type of cell is most common in the human body? The answer is muscle cells. You have more pounds of muscles than any other organ or tissue in the body. Muscles are the largest ”organ” in the body. (3)

But you can have a little bit of rigor mortis in some compartments of the body and still be alive. For example, the muscles in the chest and lungs can tighten up which causes difficulty breathing and anxiety. This has happened to many people and they get scared so they go to the ER thinking they are having a heart attack. The MDs find no problem with their heart so they say “you have anxiety, go see a psychiatrist”. They are then given psychiatric drugs.

man having anxiety lactic acidosis

Angina, a pain in the heart, is another example of this and it’s more common in men than women.

Fibromyalgia is another example and it’s more common in women because women have more estrogen to protect their heart.

The point is both angina and fibromyalgia oftentimes have the same mechanism.

The Brain and Other Problems

In another compartment – the brain – you can get cell starvation and cell death but instead of brain cells tightening up like muscles, they lead to bad thoughts like anxiety, depression, fear, worry, doubt, and other psychiatric problems.

This cell starvation happens throughout the body and more symptoms occur as long as the person doesn’t handle lactic acidosis.

This explains type 2 diabetes: excess glycolysis or sugar burning. It was stated by Dr. Henry Harrower in 1932 that diabetes is lactic acidosis.

This also explains a heart attack: lactic acidosis causing heart muscle cells to starve and die. This can cause sudden death. It can also occur in just one section of the heart which alters the flow of blood in the arteries around the heart muscle which can form and release a plaque. The lactic acidosis came first, the plaque came second but the plaque is always blamed as the primary culprit of the heart attack. (4)

This also explains cancer: normal cells overuse lactate when there is no oxygen. When oxygen is restored into the environment, the cell continues to use lactate as its preferred fuel. This state of not using oxygen despite it being available for use is cancer.

Cancer cells have other mechanisms besides lactic acidosis but as a general rule, these waste products need to be cleaned by the liver but this will not happen for you if you are suffering from a B vitamin deficiency. So you need to avoid excess sugar and carbohydrates which require lots of B vitamins to digest them and yet provide no or very little B vitamins.

Exercising improves the ability to add oxygen to the blood. If you don’t feed and care for your muscles, all the other organs don’t have a chance. Optimal liver and kidney health are vital so they can clean the blood. These organs are the main detoxifying organs of the body. Help them out by making a non-toxic lifestyle and dietary choices.

An A-HA Moment! The Cause Of Chronic Disease

An A-HA Moment! The Cause Of Chronic Disease

This is blog 5 of a series of 13.

The Common Set of Biochemical Processes

In chronic illness, there is a common set of biochemical processes that lead to anatomical changes that cause cells, tissues, and organs to die. This mechanical system operates in a series of causes and effects.

When it comes to healing your body, you have to address the 1) Causes, the 2) Mechanism, and then 3) feed your organs to get rid of the symptoms.

There are many mechanisms but there is one single most common mechanism of chronic disease and it is called Lactic Acidosis. It is the most common mechanism because our modern diet is so high in carbohydrates. Also, pathogens and toxins are key components.

If you don’t address this, you will significantly lower your chance of optimal health. When addressed appropriately, it’s life-changing and handles the widest variety of conditions and symptoms that were never considered related.

(1) Here is some history of lactic acidosis: In the late 1700s “lactic acid” was discovered as a chemical compound. It was a slightly foul-smelling, thick, mucousy liquid that was reminiscent of sour milk. “Acid” indicated the smelly odor and “lactic” indicated it looked like milk.

To learn more, I have created a Free eBook Guide called the “Follow The Physiology Formula” – Click here to download:

In 1848, lactic acid was found in a majority of cadavers and in the next decade, it was discovered in a majority of people with a chronic illness. These discoveries set the stage of medical research for the next 100 years. The main goal of doctors treating the chronically ill was to eliminate lactic acid or it’s breakdown product: lactate.

Since the 1920s, it has had several different names, applications, and definitions.

Lactic Acidosis

I figured out lactic acidosis in March of 2016 when I unknowingly suffered from toxic mold exposure. Besides having its own toxic properties, black mold also releases lactic acid in high amounts. I suffered from this for a year before discovering that my Cause was mold.

In the meantime, I had to go back to old nutrition and medical texts and articles (2) (3) from 1930 to 1961 to understand what was happening to my body. Lactic acidosis has been forgotten since 1961 for several reasons but it is time to bring it back so we can all benefit.

In 1932, the definition of lactic acidosis made it applicable to every person who had a chronic health problem. It made their treatments simpler and results were better. As time went on, especially after World War 2, the nutritional research disappeared and lactic acidosis became a “pathology” rather than a nutritional problem.

lactic-acidosis-the nhcaa

After the 1970s, lactic acidosis was only applied to athletes and to very sick people who only have a few days to live. The expansive subject was well researched and well known in 1932 but after WW2, it was forgotten amongst healthcare practitioners. However, when scientists and doctors researched it, they only took a small section of the huge subject. The majority of the subject has been ignored. The small sections researched lately miss the bigger ideas. Essentially, the whole subject has been lost and only a few sections remain today and those sections have been misapplied and have taken us down the wrong path regarding individual health care.

I Thought I Was Dying

I found it in 2016 when unbeknownst to me, I had toxic mold exposure. I didn’t know it yet I suffered for a year before I discovered the mold. In the meantime, I thought I was dying and I was trying many natural products to help my symptoms.

heart palpatations lactic acidosis the nhcaa

On the night of February 3, 2016, I couldn’t sleep due to my pounding heart, palpitations, and I couldn’t catch my breath. My blood pressure was 155/95!! My feet were swollen, I had chest pain in my heart referring down my left arm and up my left jaw! My thoughts were extremely anxious. I was basically dying and I thought it was from a heart attack yet my arteries are clean and 3 EKGs showed my heart was fine. I was scrolling through my phone wondering which hospital I should go to. “Should I call an ambulance or drive myself?”

My thoughts were crazy! “Who will mow my lawn in the summer, who will plow the snow in my driveway, I need to sell my house.” I realized these were not my normal thoughts but it was part of the disease process I was going through.

I Found Some Answers

I survived the night and the next day was going through my notes as I had been for the last 4 months because I had been trying to fix it for that long. I found some notes from a seminar that had supplement recommendations for the heart. I took those supplements and within 2 days felt better so I knew I was on the right track! I wanted to know what was in those supplements and why they helped me. Remember, I had not yet discovered the mold. It turns out those supplements were formulated in 1934 after 9 years of feeding studies by the developer. “What was he thinking? What did he know about my body in 2016 that I didn’t know?” I started reading articles from 1930 to 1961. I had read these articles 10 years earlier but didn’t understand them at that time. But this time, I understood it because I was experiencing it. There was one paragraph in one article where I had a profound “A-HA” moment. That paragraph was from an article written in 1958 and it explained my health problem AND ALL CHRONIC DISEASE. I read it the first time and was so excited, I set the book down to run around the house. I picked the book up again to re-read the paragraph and set it down to run around the house. I did this 4 times! The formulator of the supplements that helped me was fixing lactic acidosis.

I started reading a lot of old medical and nutrition textbooks from 1911 to 1961 which explains it in detail. Other “Fathers of Medicine” also said the same thing. Examples include Dr. Otto Warburg, the Father of Physiology and Dr. Henry Harrower, the Father of Endocrinology.

Toxic mold makes lactic acid so that is why I benefitted. Nine months later, I discovered the mold and then was able to handle the CAUSE of my symptoms.

I discovered that having excess lactate in the body is called lactic acidosis and is a sign of chronic illness, the overuse of sugar as fuel, the lack of ketosis (fat burning), dirty blood, hypoxia, loss of energy production, mitochondrial dysfunction (the inability to make energy), inability to utilize oxygen, toxic mold in the body, and liver dysfunction.

High lactate indicates the mechanism of chronic disease is occurring which is called lactic acid cycle also known as cachexia. Cachexia is from the Greek meaning “bad habits” (4) and it is a positive risk factor for death.(5) What are the bad habits that cause cachexia and death? A bad diet high in grains and sugar. In 1932, all doctors and students of medicine knew of this problem, although it was not yet fully explained until a few years later. They knew there was lactate present in high amounts in the blood and an acidic environment. They also were discovering other chemicals involved; not just lactate.

What The Doctors Were Missing

What the doctors back then were missing was the CAUSES of chronic disease but they talked about the mechanism. What doctors today are missing is the mechanism because they are just talking about the causes. Now we can put both together which allows us to treat the causes AND the mechanism. I have found around 150 symptoms and conditions that are caused or driven by lactic acidosis. Remember, it is a mechanism, not usually a cause.

The benefit of knowing about lactic acidosis is so you have a complete procedure to handle your chronic health problems. Without addressing the mechanism of chronic disease, chances are less that you will make a full recovery.

mechanism the nhcaa

One of the main therapies for lactic acidosis as described 85 years ago is meat and liver. Especially liver, because it has lots of B vitamins. The B vitamins in the liver help clean up the blood, and eating the liver organ itself provides cell parts to repair your liver. Your liver cleans 85% of the lactate out of the blood! Meat is important to help the body quit using sugar as a fuel. Excess sugar usage is a cause of lactic acidosis.

Our paleolithic ancestors ate the whole animal including organs. These organ foods nourished their organs to keep them healthy. In the 1930s the doctors knew that all the organs, working together, had a detoxifying effect to clean the blood. That’s why it’s important to consume multiple glands from nose to tail, whether it’s on your dinner plate or in a supplement.

Final Words

Now that you know the background of lactic acidosis, realize it has been missing in healthcare since 1961. Once I figured it out, everything in healthcare made sense. I had been in natural healthcare for 19 years at the time I discovered it. Afterward, all the bits and pieces related to health and disease fell into place. Everything!

Applying the correct treatments increased my results tremendously and within months, I had a 6-week waiting list of patients who wanted my care and the interest has only increased as more and more people seek help and education online rather than just taking “the next pill”.

The biggest cause of lactic acidosis, the most common mechanism of chronic disease is a high carbohydrate diet plus industrial fats that interfere with proper cell function.

Ketosis is an important factor in stopping lactic acidosis for most people – the people who got it from their “modern diet”.

Ketosis helps your body to use its own fat stores as fuel. It turns the fat into water-soluble chemicals called ketones. In general, the body runs better on ketones than it does on sugar.

Junk Food = Chronic Disease

Junk Food = Chronic Disease

This is blog 4 of a series of 13.

We are born healthy but throughout our life, we get exposed to external factors that harm our health such as toxins and pathogens. Another “external factor” is bad food that we unknowingly or unconsciously consume.

Our modern diet has a unique feature never seen in the history of mankind before 1848. It is called “junk food”. The first candy bar was 1848 and this junk food industry grew as the industrial revolution grew. (1)

The four main components of junk food are:

  1. Seed oils (formally known as vegetable oils)
  2. Added sugar
  3. Processed flour, especially refined white wheat.
  4. Added salt

The seed oils alone cause incredible damage and are possibly as bad as sugar for causing diabetes and heart disease. (2) Consider that 99% of salad dressing is a seed oil such as canola oil or soybean oil.

The sugar alone is inflammatory and causes disease. It is pure carbohydrate with little nutrition. The processed flour is poor quality and very inflammatory. It is also exceedingly high in carbohydrates which turn into sugar and then stored as fat.

To learn more, I have created a Free eBook Guide called the “Follow The Physiology Formula” – Click here to download:

Excess carbohydrates from sugar and flour are also the main cause of the mechanism of chronic disease called lactic acidosis.

Along with eating junk food, excess carbohydrates from sugar and flour are also the main cause of the mechanism of chronic disease called lactic acidosis. It is the mechanism behind all chronic illness in our modern society. The excess sugar metabolism from the grains and sugar consumption builds up pathological tissue and is the biggest contributor to chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity.

When you add the high sugar with bad fats, it’s a recipe for disaster. (3) The sugar makes all fat turn into “cluster bombs” that circulate around in the blood damaging cells, tissues, and blocking normal physiology. This combination of high sugar and high fat intake is the hallmark of modern, industrial foods found in packages and makeup 80% of grocery stores.

Imagine a hamburger on a bun. It’s the high carb bun that makes the burger meat dangerous. If you skip the bun, you get all the nutrients and building capacity of the meat without the damaging bread. You can’t blame the burger for what the bun or fries are doing.

Our ancestors’ diet had meat. (4) This is true all over the world. Some had less, some had more but a significant percentage of calories was animal flesh either scavenged or hunted.

Vegetables and fruit were lesser in calories in general but went up during summer when plants were more readily available. These plants were mostly medicinal like the herbs you buy at a health food store now.

The State of Burning Fat — Ketosis

The high meat and low carb diet lead to ketosis – the state of fat burning. Also, our ancestors sometimes didn’t have food so they fasted. This also created the state of ketosis which is the native state of the body and is a natural way of detoxification (5) and it strengthens your immune system against pathogens.

The ideal diet for a human being is, low carbohydrate, plenty of protein, and healthy fats. The healthier your diet is, the less food you need to eat and the less often you eat too. Snacks become unnecessary when your meals are awesome. The time between meals extends out to many hours because you are simply not hungry. This is known as intermittent fasting. (6) First, feed your body for a period of time for the goal of satiety, then you can fast.

steak-good food ketosis the nhcaa

There is no experiment that proves meat causes any disease such as cancer (7) or heart disease (8)… “There is no compelling health reason to avoid red meat.” Do not be afraid to use butter, lard, and meat. Just remember, you cannot add high carbohydrate foods with them in your meals.

Your diet is the most fundamental basis of your health and it is something that you have to do anyways, we all need to eat food. But by avoiding seed oils, added sugar, and processed flour, you will be off to a great start.

The State of Burning Fat — Ketosis

Our ancestors’ diet can’t be ignored and has to have some sort of influence over how you approach your food today. When you look at a plate of food that contains meat, vegetables, salad, and starch the volume of food is primarily plants by quantity but the greatest quantity of calories is still the meat. That’s our ancestral diet- it is calorie dense with meat. It keeps you satisfied for a long time, keeps you warm, and provides endurance. Focus on the meat and the rest of the food should be lower in carbs.

If you have been exposed to too many toxins and pathogens and you’ve been eating high carb foods, you are setting yourself up for lactic acidosis. Since the 1920’s it has been known to be the most common mechanism of chronic disease. (37) Up until the 1970s, doctors were taught to assume all their chronically ill patients had it.

The Follow The Physiology Formula helps you to reverse engineer lactic acidosis so you can take back control of your health.

Achieving optimal health doesn’t have to be complicated and by focusing on some simple key points, it is easy to achieve amazing results.

If your diet is all-natural foods such as meat and vegetables and a little fruit and you are not feeling better and better over time, then remember you still have other factors to contend with – pathogens, toxicity, the mechanism of chronic disease, and organ dysfunction.

The journey of reverse-engineering the disease cycle includes entering into the state of Ketosis which helps your body to naturally burn fat that you’ve been storing. Ketosis then becomes the foundation of the required detoxification that your body needs. It helps to feed your hormones and brain which ultimately makes you happier.

Moving To A Low Carb Diet

Moving over to a low-carb diet starts the process of helping your body to fight against and eliminate these harmful organisms. By consuming higher amounts of protein your body maintains its structure and function- you don’t lose your brainpower, muscular strength, and bones (osteoporosis). Nutritional and herbal supplements are supplemental to your good diet and are important for killing organisms and detoxification.

Diet is essential to solving lactic acidosis. The two most important foods to eat are meat and liver. A distant “third place” is vegetables.

But regardless of the types of food you eat, it is essential to know ketosis is the first place to start so that your cells stop using sugar as fuel and instead switch over to ketones.

In the 1930s, the founders of medicine discovered that many organs worked together to clean the blood of lactate and other wastes so they made glandular supplements. They put animal glands such as liver and pancreas into pills. (10) Their patients took these pills to get better. You can consume glands from animals for your own benefit or take supplements with glands in them.

These glandular supplements of the 1920s and ’30s were lost when synthesized hormones were invented for better or for worse, such as synthetic estrogen, insulin, etc.

Toxins, Pathogens, and Diet

Toxins, Pathogens, and Diet are all in the first circle of the Follow The Physiology Formula. They are the “Causes”. The second circle is the mechanism – lactic acidosis – that gets ignored the most. The third circle is feeding organs to get rid of symptoms. Most doctors try to suppress the symptoms with drugs instead of feeding the organs.

All three circles need to be addressed – maybe all at once or at different stages. Making sure all 3 are thoroughly addressed insures health improvement. If you skip one circle, your healing will be incomplete.

Pathogens Can Cause Chronic Disease

Pathogens Can Cause Chronic Disease

This is blog 3 of a series of 13.

The second major Cause of chronic disease is pathogens.

When it comes to your body there are different levels of pathogens that can produce disease. A pathogen may also be referred to as an infectious agent, a “bug”, or simply a germ.

These pathogens in the body are a major cause of chronic illness and there are potentially thousands of them that can harm your body. They can also reside dormant while your immune system is strong and your body is healthy but once you’re under stress, they can thrive, reproduce, grow, and invade any part of your body. They can live anywhere they want. Think of them as snakes in the jungle. They live in the trees, on the ground, or swim in the water.

You can have a pathogen living in your ears constantly re-infecting your sinuses or causing drainage dripping down your throat (1) into your stomach or lungs causing problems there. You can also have a bacterial infection in your jaw, called cavitation, that harbors nasty bugs that can infect your heart or get into your bloodstream or lymphatic system (the sewer system of the body) causing chronic diseases throughout your body such as fatigue, chronic muscle soreness, and even heart disease. (2)

To learn more, I have created a Free eBook Guide called the “Follow The Physiology Formula” – Click here to download:

The ultimate goal of these pathogens is to knock your body down to the ground and turn it into soil just like they do with leaves, trees, and wildlife.

What are the symptoms of organisms invading your body?

It’s important to understand that many symptoms could be a sign your body is overrun. For example, a flu virus causes symptoms for a few days whereas a “retro-virus” can cause fatigue for decades, and the ebola virus can kill you in 4-8 weeks. A parasite can increase your appetite or decrease it. A fungus can make all of your symptoms worse during the nighttime.

But there are a few specific symptoms to help get you into a ballpark so you know what general kind of organisms might be affecting you. For example, you could be harboring a fungus in your body which means when you eat certain foods, it will feed that fungus and cause symptoms like excess bloating of the stomach. Or if you look at your tongue and there is a white coating on it – this could also be a strong sign that you are suffering from a fungus. (3)

When dealing with the multitude of fungi and looking for solutions, the most natural remedies are herbs. When you use herbs, they can kill many different organisms besides fungi at the same time. One of my favorite herbs is oregano and there are many others that work as well. It’s my favorite because it works the majority of the time for multiple different organisms. (4)

aregano kills fungus nhcaa
Oral Candidiasis the nhcaa

The good news is, there are plenty of herbs and supplements that do a great job. Pick the right ones, give them time, and assist the body in cleaning itself as the therapies work.

The best defense you can have against these pathogens is maintaining a healthy body so that you make sure your tissues and organs are HEALTHY.

The job of these organisms is to decompose your non-healthy tissue. The more unhealthy tissue you have, the greater the chances of having organisms inside your body causing harm. (5)

The third major cause of chronic disease is our poor diet because of the easy access to our horrible food supply.

eat good food to fight pathogens nhcaa

Toxins, pathogens in the body, and a poor diet are causing different forms of chronic illnesses that can’t simply be addressed thoroughly by just taking a drug.

When it comes to toxins and pathogens the correct way to address them is through the use of specific supplements. The correct way to address a poor diet is to start eating healthy food.

Even though these 3 areas are causing chronic illnesses, they seem to be ignored by modern medicine.

To learn more about the 3 main areas that are causing chronic illness – Click here to download your free eBook guide “Follow The Physiology Formula”:

These organisms take over weakened tissue or they create more dead tissue by releasing poisons. These poisons affect the function of your circulatory system negatively which leads to cell starvation and death. The official terms to describe the malfunctioning circulation are Congestion and Hyperemia. Congestion is from the blood flow being too slow causing capillary engorgement. Hyperemia is when the blood flow is too fast. Whether you get hyperemia or congestion, cells cannot get nutrients or eliminate wastes. (6)  —more on this later.

So the best way to defend yourself from this happening to your body is to reduce the intake of excess sugars and seed oils. These foods are the primary destructive foods in our modern diet. Grains and fruits are high in sugar and carbohydrates which feed these organisms, so avoid them. Also, avoid dairy because it is mucousy and helps the pathogens to thrive. Instead, keep your diet simple with meat and vegetables.

A simple way to reduce your exposure to these organisms is by washing your hands and walking away from people who are coughing or sneezing. Killing such pathogens is possible with herbs such as oregano for bacteria, wormwood for parasites and Lysine for viruses. These are all readily available at your local health food store or online. It is fine to take anti-microbial herbs on a regular basis because your healthy cells love these herbs while the bad cells do not.

The good news is that you do have control over these pathogens. It is not “fate” or “bad luck” that controls your destiny regarding infections.

The puzzle to solving your health problems includes determining if you have these pathogens living in your body and if so, what symptoms are they causing

fight pathogens the nhcaa

When I first approach a patient’s healthcare, I have to incorporate these factors into the puzzle solving. This means I need to address – toxicity, pathogens, and diet. We determine which one is the most important and start addressing it. It can also be that all of these need to be tackled at the same time.

Part of getting your health back and moving towards optimal health means you need to address these pathogens over a period of time. You can use effective, inexpensive supplements and herbs overtime to stop the continual onslaught of Mother Nature’s “decomposers” on your body and to stop them from turning your body into soil.

Herbs Are Mother Nature’s Medicine Chest 

So when I say herbs, I’m referring to the chemicals that are within these herbs.

These plant chemicals are also called “secondary metabolites” and are extracted en masse from a plant. (7)

These chemicals are Mother Nature’s medicine chest!

If you think about a plant – it has no defense at all – it’s just stuck in the ground and is completely vulnerable. Therefore Mother Nature has gifted these herbs with unique defense chemicals aka secondary metabolites. Other secondary metabolites include chemicals to attract pollinators with aromas or chemicals that create color. (8)

Our ancestors discovered that these chemicals helped them to feel better – fast-forwarding to today – we can now use these exact same herbs and their defense chemicals to fight against fungi and other pathogens.

Therefore helping you to feel great daily as a result of wiping out the organisms that reside inside your body. Whatever symptoms those organisms are causing will go away when the bugs are gone.

The Pathogens release their own toxins to compromise your immune system. These toxins create arterial dilation then circulatory stagnation which results in capillary engorgement. Wiping out the organisms that reside inside your body will help you in feeling better. Whatever symptoms those organisms are causing will disappear when the bugs are gone.

When I had toxic black mold exposure, I could see my veins were larger in my wrists plus my feet were swollen with fluid. I knew there was a slowness of my circulation throughout my body. I discovered later that black mold causes this by releasing lactic acid as one of its wastes.

Other pathogens besides mold do a similar thing. For example, most pathogens create a biofilm in which they live. Others create a toxin to compromise their host without killing them or for the purpose of killing them.

Some supplements can help defeat capillary engorgement by removing wastes and toxins from the blood or by increasing oxygen in the blood.

With less waste and more oxygen, capillaries constrict back to their normal size. (9) (10) (11) (12)

One of my favorite supplement companies infuses their supplements with extra oxygen. (13) Also, their underlying constituent or component of their products is an excellent detoxifier. If you want to buy it, you can use the code L6pdmf3r on their website.

I use their products on most people with ANY chronic illness. These supplements and many more are available on the internet. More information is at the end of this ebook.

Three Main Causes Of Chronic Disease

Three Main Causes Of Chronic Disease

This is blog 2 of a series of 13.

When it comes to chronic illness there are 3 main causes you need to understand.

But first, typically when we are not feeling well, we go to the doctor with a health problem and they perform some tests and in most cases end up prescribing a drug.

This is typically what tends to happen, which is why we have developed a mindset that thinks if we take a drug everything will get better and go away.

A classic example is having a headache, we take a few pills and the headache goes away. Therefore we never really work out why we had a headache in the first place. We never realize that the headache could have been a message from our body trying to tell us that something is wrong. This also means we never try to discover the cause that is directly responsible for the headache and instead we continue as normal.

To learn more, I have created a Free eBook Guide called the “Follow The Physiology Formula” – Click here to download:

This helps to highlight that there is more than just taking a pill that needs to be considered. Even though taking drugs may be needed – Do they cause any side effects? Sometimes the side effects of taking a drug can start you on a journey to a whole new set of problems. This means if you do have some form of chronic illness then you need to look at your lifestyle and see if you can work out what you have done that could have been responsible for causing your illness. Instead of ignoring any underlying issues, I will give you the tools so that you can make new decisions that will create a new, healthier lifestyle.

To address these underlying issues, let’s first gain a deeper understanding of the 3 main causes of chronic disease that modern medicine sometimes doesn’t initially address.

The first cause of chronic disease is Toxins:

Chemical and heavy metal toxins include substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, chlorine, bromine, pesticides, medications, and seed oils (formerly known as vegetable oils). These toxins need to be cleaned or detoxed from the body and the best tools are nutritionally based, not drug-based to clean out chronic toxicity. (1)

The second cause of chronic disease is Pathogens:

These infections can live in our bodies without us knowing it. They hide from the immune system and do not always cause “cold or flu-like symptoms”. They are not affected by or killed by common antibiotics and they can mimic our DNA so that they are camouflaged to our immune cells.

The third cause of chronic disease is processed food in the modern diet that is filled with sugars and is high in carbohydrates.

Seed oils, formerly known as vegetable oils, are highly processed, highly inflammatory synthetic foods that produce disease in our bodies too. Sugar and seed oils combined have contributed to the worst epidemic of chronic disease in history, with global explosions of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cancer.

The sugar industry has tried to hide their sins (2) but the seed (vegetable) oil industry is caught red-handed. (3)

Toxicity is a hidden problem that the majority of us suffer from in one form or another.

In our modern world, toxins are present everywhere. They are in the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat. More common sources include the fillings in our teeth (4), medications, cleaning products, body care products, and beauty products. (5) And the amount of chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis is endless. Chemicals are in practically everything we touch or smell.

Let’s not forget radioactive elements that persist in our environment from atomic bomb testing and nuclear reactor meltdowns. Yes, these radioactive elements are real and are tracked by governments but never addressed for personal health. Excessive radioactive elements are found in more than half of Americans tap water!

So we are talking about are small particles of metals such as lead, mercury, and arsenic. You would be surprised how much these metals are used for all sorts of different products and reasons. (7)

These toxins are either breathed in or consumed as our normal food or absorbed through or skin and sometimes they are even injected depending on the circumstances.

All of these toxins are substances in the body that interfere with normal body functions all the way down to the cell’s biochemical reactions.

Too many toxins and chemicals can be a major cause and contributor to chronic illnesses. This is why it’s not all about just taking a pill to make everything seem alright. Even our medications have levels of metals and chemicals that can contribute to toxicity. (8) (9) Even though our bodies may need this medication, there is a lot we can do to help reduce these and other levels of toxins and chemicals to strengthen our bodies and help with the improvement.

What are the symptoms of toxicity? Well, all symptoms could be a sign of some sort of toxicity, especially the full body symptoms such as fatigue or muscle problems. Our job is to become aware of this through symptoms and lab testing and start doing something about it.

When it comes to reducing toxins in the body you need to be aware that they are everywhere. (10a, 10b, 10c, 10d) Children are born with over 200 chemicals. Our bodies are always fighting them, but our cells can become overwhelmed or dysfunctional.

This is why we are starting to see so much chronic illness all over the world. Even our food can be considered as toxic if we are not careful, especially when you consume processed foods. These foods are full of flavor enhancers, preservatives, refined flour, seed oils, and sugar.

The most basic thing to do is reduce your exposure to toxins.

For example, avoiding processed food, toxic cleaning products, body care products, and having clean filtered water. You either remove the toxin from your life or remove yourself from it such as a toxic building.

Another detoxifying practice that I do in my clinic very successfully is to take supplements that are well-designed and researched.

Saunas have also been proven to be very helpful in removing toxins through sweating. Infrared saunas work better than regular heat saunas because they penetrate deeper into the body. (11)

As you start to reduce toxins in the body, all your hormones, enzymes, and biochemical processes of your organs and glands can start to function optimally. When you apply these practices, you start the journey of continual improvement to your health.

All of these toxins that we are being subjected to are interfering with our normal body functions all the way down to the cell’s biochemical reactions.

The excess toxins relative to lower oxygen in the blood create circulatory changes resulting in cell starvation and cell death. This is the lactic acidosis mechanism.

More on this later.

Ketosis is the foundation of detoxification. It mobilizes fat out of storage to be used as fuel. (12) Fat is where toxins are stored and they get released into the blood. The toxins now need to be excreted by the liver and kidneys.

This is why when a person loses weight too fast, they can get sick because they are releasing toxins into their bloodstream that is not being excreted.

Ketosis is done at a controlled speed by the body so a detoxification problem is rare.

Remember, the definition of Lactic Acidosis from 1932 is more clinically appropriate than the modern definition. I have found around 150 symptoms and conditions that are caused or driven by lactic acidosis. But the lactic acid cycle, once understood, helps you understand the mechanism of how your health degenerates. And it helps you understand that the best way to keep your health up is with lifestyle choices, natural remedies from food and supplements, and exercise. And within this guide, I will show you how to prevent it or reverse-engineer it if you have it. Allowing you to achieve the optimal health you desire.

My name is Dr. Darren Schmidt and I am a Doctor of Chiropractic who has been focusing on nutrition my whole career; since the mid-1990s. This has led me to discover something that has personally saved my life, changed thousands of my patients’ lives and now I want it to help change your life as well.

But before we start – I’d like to ask you a few questions, just to see if you are in the right place!

  • Have you started to feel unhealthy and not sure why?
  • Has there been an underlying problem with your health and you just can’t work out what it is?
  • Do you not recover like you used to? Maybe from bad food, alcohol, or exercise?
  • Have you ever thought there could be more to reducing your symptoms other than just being given a drug from your doctor?
  • Are you curious about how to get back to the way your health used to be when you were younger?
  • Are you overweight?
  • Are you suffering from high blood pressure or high blood sugar?
  • Do you suffer from chronic pain such as arthritis, back pain, or headaches?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then this information is for you. You are about to learn the tools that will change the course of your life, as it has for me and as I witness on a daily basis with the patients I treat.

To learn more, I have created a Free eBook Guide called the “Follow The Physiology Formula” – Click here to download:

It’s focused around a misinterpreted medical term called “Lactic Acidosis”. Even if you were to look it up on Google or ask a Doctor, you would not get the original, correct meaning, which is why I have created this guide for you. Once you understand the true meaning of Lactic Acidosis, everything will change. Lactic acidosis has been forgotten since 1961 for several reasons but it is time to bring it back so we can all benefit.

Once I figured it out in 2016, everything in healthcare made sense. I had been in natural healthcare for 19 years at the time I discovered it. Afterward, all the bits and pieces related to health and disease fell into place. Everything!

My research led me to Lactic Acidosis and it was from this information that I created the Follow the Physiology Formula. Within this guide, I explain how this formula saved my life and how it is helping my patients recover from chronic illnesses. One in three adults worldwide has these chronic conditions, many in multiples with some having 5 or 6 simultaneously.

There are 3 main areas that are causing chronic illness and they are unaddressed by the majority of the medical field.

  1. The first comes from undetected toxicities from acute or long-term exposures. We are surrounded by these toxins from the moment we are born to right this very second.
  2. The second is ‘pathogens’ – A pathogen can also be referred to as an infectious agent, a “bug”, or simply a germ. It’s important to know that they can be hidden and you may be suffering from them for many years without even knowing it.
  3. The third is poor diet because of the easy access to our horrible food supply.

Toxins, Pathogens and a poor diet are causing different forms of chronic illnesses that can’t simply be addressed thoroughly by just taking a drug.

When it comes to toxins and pathogens the correct way to address them is through the use of specific supplements. The correct way to address a poor diet is to start eating healthy food.

Even though these 3 areas are causing chronic illnesses, they seem to be ignored by modern medicine.

Instead, we are seeing more medical operations being performed and more drugs are being used to treat the symptoms of diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and depression. (1)

It is time to address these 3 causes instead of just focusing on the effects. Even though our bodies are an amazing machine, it’s still important to realize that if treated in the wrong way, over an extended period of time, it will wear out.

And when it wears out, that’s when chronic illness steps in and takes over.

The good news is, by following the Follow The Physiology Formula you will be able to easily achieve optimal health.

When it comes to healing your body, you have to address the Causes, the Mechanism, and then feed your organs to get rid of symptoms.

Let’s start by jumping back in time to the 1920s through World War 2. This was a time when all the medical studies were ‘feeding’ studies that were discovering vitamins and they were trying to figure out the importance of nutrition. (2)

All of the doctors at this time were trying to fix chronic illness by addressing the MECHANISM (most common is Lactic Acidosis) but they mostly weren’t focusing on what was actually causing the chronic illness. (3)

It wasn’t until much later that they started focusing on the CAUSES but by doing so, they slowly forgot about the mechanism, especially after 1961.

Both the MECHANISM and the CAUSES are 2 very important steps that are directly related and need to be focused on together. When I used these 2 steps together on my patients for the first time ever, everything started to change within my practice. This combination started to improve my patients’ success rates more than ever before. Which made me realize that SYMPTOMS needed to be added as the third step. Once I combined the Causes, Mechanism, and Symptoms together, everything started to change.

Step 1 is all about the CAUSES of chronic illnesses.
Step 2 is all about the most common MECHANISM – lactic acidosis.
Step 3 is all about feeding your organs to help them function better so that SYMPTOMS go away which is what everyone wants but you can’t forget the first 2 steps!

It’s this combination of the 3 steps that created the “Follow The Physiology Formula”

Remember, the definition of Lactic Acidosis from 1932 is more clinically appropriate than the modern definition.

I have found around 150 symptoms and conditions that are caused or driven by lactic acidosis. But the lactic acid cycle, once understood, helps you understand the mechanism of how your health degenerates. And it helps you understand that the best way to keep your health up is with lifestyle choices, natural remedies from food and supplements, and exercise.
