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.

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)
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.
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
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.
