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 (1), medications, cleaning products, body care products, and beauty products. (2) 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! (3)
So we are talking about 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. (4)
These toxins are either breathed in or consumed as our normal food or absorbed through our 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. (5) (6) 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.
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.
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 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.
“My thoughts were crazy.. I need to sell my house!”
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 EKG’s 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.
My A-HA Moment!
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. 9 months later, I discovered the mold and then was able to handle the CAUSE of my symptoms.
Ketosis is a large part of the “Follow The Physiology Formula” is to make sure you are doing all that you can to make sure your organs are healthy. Your organs play a significant role in cleaning your body, some more than others. When your organs aren’t working well, you end up with a variety of different symptoms.
For example: If your heart isn’t working well, you get left chest pain. If your gall bladder isn’t working well, you get right abdominal pain and problems digesting fats. If your brain doesn’t work well, you have cloudy thinking. So how do you reduce toxins in the human body?
One way to help heal your organs is to eat more animal organs such as liver. You can consume them as food or in a supplement form. Many cultures have eaten a wide variety of organs such as the pancreas (sweetbreads), liver, tripe (abdominal fat), and brain (head cheese).
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 organs have specific nutrients that are important for your own organs. For example, the thyroid has a lot of iodine, the liver has a lot of vitamin A, the muscles have heme iron and myoglobin. These nutrients in abundance will flood your thyroid, liver, and muscles with nourishment and health.
Eat Like Our Ancestors Did
It is important to try and eat a diet like our ancestors did. The majority of their calories were from animal foods. When and if they ate plants, it was primarily the fruit. The leaves, stems, nuts, seeds, and roots needed some kind of processing to occur such as soaking, cooking, or grinding making it more difficult to consume.
Usually when a tribe hunted an animal they ate it from nose to tail. The majority of the tissue was muscle meat and there were smaller portions of organs such as liver, kidneys, brain, thyroid, etc.
In the 1960’s, the Smithsonian Institution discovered that when our ancestors caught a small bird or rodent, they just ate the whole animal including fur and feathers. The scientists tested this on themselves and found their body could digest the whole animal and most of the bones.
The lesson here is do not be afraid or think it’s unnatural to eat animals. When you think of the food chain, remember we are at the top.
As you eat different organs, you will get nutrients from those organs but you can also find supplements that have organs in them. For example, you can take a thyroid supplement, meaning it is full of dried thyroid tissue. It will have more iodine than other organs and will feed your thyroid the iodine plus other nutrients that naturally and commonly occur in the thyroid.
