The History of Lactic Acidosis

by Follow The Physiology

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. 

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. (1) 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. Learn what causes lactic acidosis below.

Achieve Optimal 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 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 brain power, 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.

When it comes to preventing lactic acidosis, it’s important to learn more about the physiology of chronic disease. It’s just as important to understand how cells die as it is to understand how to make them healthier. 

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 switches over to ketones. 

The Founders of Medicine

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. (2) 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 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. 

Lactic Acidosis History

Now that you have a deeper understanding of these 4 steps of lactic acidosis and how to use them to take back control of your health, it’s time to find out why you may have never heard of lactic acidosis in the past and why it’s been hidden from you!

There are 2 MAIN FACTORS that have prevented the world from finding out and making it so hard to learn about…


The first is the nutrition and medical research before World War 2 was on “feeding studies”, which are studies where they removed specific vitamins and nutrients from foods of animals to see the effects. They also had the opportunity to monitor poor families during the Great Depression who could only afford to eat white, refined bread. These families could not afford vegetables and meat, the foods that support organs. These studies where very powerful and gave us the foundational understanding of how vitamins and minerals work. 

Then after WW2, pharmaceutical companies gained great strength and eventually, these nutritional feeding studies ended and soon after were forgotten about. Add to this, the federal government declared that Vitamin E and Vitamin C were mere “anti-oxidants”, essentially canceling decades of research and ignoring the disease-preventing abilities of these nutrients.

Then the next factor was centered around Dr. Royal Lee, who was the Father of holistic nutrition. He was one of the most vocal and most powerful at educating the world on how whole food nutrition and supplements could help to reverse chronic health. This eventually led to a major lawsuit against him in 1961 to stop him from talking about healthcare or nutrition by the US Supreme Court. He lost the case and was forced to never talk about healthcare again and died in 1967 and this great information went with him. 

Since then, this enormous and comprehensive subject of lactic acidosis which was well studied for over 100 years became 2 small subjects. The first subject was only for athletes- lactic acid in the muscles. The goal is to reduce the amount of lactic acid in muscles for better performance.  

And the second smaller subject was related to people who only have a few days left to live. These people are in the hospital and they have suffered a heart attack or gotten a diagnosis of cancer. As a result, their bodies are filling up with lactic acid and the MD’s run a lactate test from blood and they also test the acidity of the blood. The higher the lactate and the more acidic the blood is, the shorter the lifespan of that person. 

These two small subjects were taken out of context and the whole subject of lactic acidosis, including their appropriate solutions had been lost.

Which brings us back to the world we are living in today.
