The Cause of All Degenerative Disease

All forms of degenerative disease are spiraling out of control including cancer, heart disease, and all neurological disorders. Each of these diseases has increased in prevalence as we have polluted our planet. All of the pollution that is on the planet is now in our bodies. Most of these toxins are neurotoxins, which explains why one out of every 3 people will develop Alzheimer’s disease by the age of 60 and one out of every two people will develop it by the age of 80. Because of the science of epigentics, we know that toxins play a part when it comes to “turning on” certain recessive genes. The healthier one’s lifestyle at all levels, the less likely is their chance of developing degenerative disease before their time.

The Importance of Gut Ecology

Has anyone eaten beef, chicken, milk or eggs in the past 60 years? If these foods have been a regular part of your diet, you have been inoculating yourself with antibiotics on a regular basis day after day even if you never needed them. In addition, birth control pills, chemotherapy drugs, and sugary foods has destroyed the ecological balance of bacteria within our guts. Without balanced gut ecology the body cannot properly digest food, which means that we won’t absorb the nutrients in the food we eat. This creates a bacterial overgrowth called Candida, which actually includes several different kinds of molds and bacteria, not just what is commonly referred to as “yeast”. This overgrowth of bacteria is responsible for all gut and stomach disorders from chronic indigestion to IBS, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, colitis and all the rest.  Each of these diseases represents a more advanced form of the same disease: candida overgrowth and mold toxicity that exist within a fermenting gut.

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Sometimes candida overgrowth leads to vaginitis. At other times it leads to IBS, which is a candida overgrowth in the stomach. Unfortunately, because humanity has been abusing itself with antibiotics since World War II, many infants no longer receive healthy gut flora from their mothers at their birth. This lack of healthy gut flora is the leading cause of autism, which first starts with a leaky gut. A leaky gut allows undigested food particles to leak into the blood stream. In the case of autism, these undigested food particles poison the brain, creating an intense neurological dysfunction that is exceedingly painful to the toddlers who are diagnosed with it. In addition, the toxic waste products of this bacteria poison their little brains.

Leaky gut is also the cause of all skin disorders including rashes and rosacea, and fungal infections of the skin and toenails. It is also the cause of all food sensitivities, many of which manifest as sneezing with all the classic symptoms of “hay fever”. Other people manifest their food sensitivities as:

SKIN problems: acne, canker sores, dark circle under the eyes, eczema, dermatitis, hives, itching, pale color psoriasis

RESPIRATORY: asthma, chronic rhinitis, cough, frequent colds, hay fever, nosebleeds, post nasal drainage, sinusitis, stuffy nose, wheezing,

EYE CONDITIONS: conjunctivitis, eye pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, tearing, temporary refractive changes

GENITOURINARY: bedwetting, frequent/painful urination, genital itch/discharge, yeast infections

MUSCULSKELETAL: arthritis joint pains, muscle cramps and spasms, muscle pain/weakness

HEADACHE: sinus, migraine

CARDIOVASCULAR: angina, high/low blood pressure, irregular heart beat, rapid pulse/palpitations

MENTAL/BEHAVIORAL: anxiety, depression, dizziness, drowsiness, epilepsy, floating sensations, fatigue, hyperactivity, nervousness, insomnia, sleep disorders, irritability, mood swings, learning disorders, confusion, poor concentration, memory problems, unsteadiness, schizophrenia

GASTROINTESTINAL: constipation, diarrhea, gallbladder pains, gas, heartburn, hemorrhoids, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, pains or cramps, nervous stomach, spastic colon, colitis

OTHER: abnormal body odor, diabetes, excessive sweating, obesity

Food allergies caused by leaky gut can mimic just about every disease known to man. Unless the underlying cause of gut fermentation is addressed, the disease state will continue unabated no matter how many drugs one takes to deal with the pain.

The Inflammation Connection

A fermenting gut caused by candida overgrowth and other toxins also leads to inflammation. Inflammation anywhere in the body is inflammation everywhere in the body. If one has cancer, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, MS, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, heart disease, diabetes, etc. their bowel is inflamed, and it doesn’t matter what their primary diagnosis is, they will need to cleanse their gut. If one has taken any kind of chemotherapy drugs for any disease, their gut ecology has been thoroughly disrupted. In fact, not only do prescription drugs disrupt gut ecology, so do over-the-counter drugs like aspirin and other NSAIDS. To deal with inflammation anywhere in the body one must cleanse the gut of toxins, and repopulate it with healthy bacteria.

Liver Detox

Gut fermentation also incapacitates the liver, which cripples its ability to detoxify the body. Indeed, because humans are inundated with toxins, the liver is overwhelmed and can no longer do its job properly. When the liver goes, all the other organs of digestion are affected. Therefore, cleansing and detoxifying the liver and rebalancing the gut flora are imperative if one wants to regain their health.


There are also many toxins that have attached themselves to our nerve endings that now reside within the brain. Dr. Sponaugle, a brain specialist and Doctor of Integrative Medicine, tests all of his Parkinson’s disease patients for  250 biochemicals, hormones, vitamins and amino acids. He has found that they all “have brains that are saturated with multiple industrial and environmental toxins.” He also says that “these toxins displace Omega 3 fatty acid chains from the structure of brain receptors, which distorts their geometric shape.” Because neurotransmitters fit into their receptor sites like a key into a lock, once the receptors change shape the dopamine can no longer be absorbed by the basal ganglia. Because pharmaceutical drugs do nothing to remove these toxins from the brain the condition worsens over time until the patient dies.

In addition,” Dr. Sponaugle’s research has proven that the “common denominator in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia patients is neurotoxicity and the excessive accumulation of toxins in the brain and nervous system”, all of which began in the gut. It seems that the toxins in the gut cause an over electrified nervous system that leads to “tremendous body pain, severe muscle spasms, trigger points, and anxiety issues that affect every nerve in their body and pulses throughout their brain! “To diagnose the underlying causes of fibromyalgia, Dr. Sponaugle performs a comprehensive analysis of over 400 biochemicals, brain chemicals, hormones, biomarkers for infection, toxin biomarkers and nutritional markers, all of which are the underlying causes of these horribly debilitating diseases. Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Ideopathic Insomnia also suffer from excito-neurotoxicity which stems from the excessive accumulation of toxins in the brain.

Parasites, Spirochetes, Mold, Bacteria, Microbes, Yeast

All environmental chemicals damage and derange every cell they come into contact with. This debris becomes food for parasites, Lyme spirochetes, and other bacteria that love to feast upon the mess left by damaged cells. This makes us into perfect hosts for them. In fact, it could be said that where one finds toxins, they will find infinitesimally small bugs that feed on them. All of these pathogens create toxic waste, which further damages the nerves and brain and increases toxin overload. According to Dr. Sponaugle, not only do Parkinson’s disease patients have Lyme disease, so do people with MS, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue.

To heal the body, we must cleanse the body of all environmental toxins, rebalance gut ecology, kill parasites, yeast, mold, and other bacteria, and heal our leaky guts. Since few traditional physicians have been trained to deal with these issues, most don’t recognize the symptoms or know what to do about them. To change this scenario, Dr. Majid Ali says that humanity must become their own physicians, learn the techniques of self-healing, and then become proactive in healing themselves. Thankfully, there are some wonderful doctors of Integrative Medicine who are willing to share their protocols for healing with us. Dr. Majid Ali is just one such physician who is doing his best to not only educate the public about the cause and cure of disease, he provides people with low cost strategies for accomplishing this goal. Through his many YouTube videos, he gives specific instructions on how to reoxygenate the body, cleanse the digestive tract of toxic sludge, and then kill candida and other mold toxins. Dr. Sherry Rogers who wrote the book Detoxify or Die is another one. She teaches people how to detoxify the body of heavy metals and other environmental chemicals, again by using low cost strategies that can be done at home. Dr. Klinghardt has his entire protocol for ridding the body of neurotoxins and killing Lyme spirochetes and other co-occurring infections online. Dr. Mercola constantly warns the public about allopathic medicine and gives a lot of information about natural healing strategies. The list of doctors willing to share their protocols with a suffering public who have no place else to turn is increasing every day.

A Fermenting Mind

As bad as the pollution on our planet is it is not the primary cause of our disease. Rather, it is the beliefs held within our mind that is the biggest problem. Though allopathic medicine deals well with acute illness and trauma, because it is a pain maintenance model and not a disease prevention model, it preserves disease indefinitely, as well as prolongs our suffering in the name of profit. It also adds to the toxic load that the body is already struggling with by prescribing both prescription and over-the-counter drugs, none of which heal us.  A drug side-effect is nothing more than an allergic response to a toxic substance that the body does not want. Because allopathic medicine is phenomenally lucrative, its customers have been taught to keep coming back because there is no known cause for whatever disease ails themt, as well as no known cure. Since you can’t cure a disease that has no cause, you are made to believe that your only recourse is to endlessly deal with your pain by taking an endless amount of costly, toxic drugs.

Our entire medical system is nothing more than a fraud.  It has become a gigantic, unfeeling machine whose sole purpose is to make us sick and keep us sick. It, and the pharmaceutical companies that educate the doctors to prescribe their drugs, have become the greatest deceivers humanity has ever known. Their payback for being the leading cause of death in America is fabulous wealth. As long as we support them by giving them our dollars, this corrupt system will never end and neither will our physical pain. 

God is the Only Answer

To heal chronic degenerative disease, one must make the shift into higher consciousness. In this consciousness it is understood that sickness is nothing more than a separation from our true nature. At the physical level, our bodies were created to thrive upon a pristine planet that is full of nutrients in the form of plants, animals, fish, and fowl. Our planet also provides us with herbs, mushrooms, fungi, flower essences, and other substances that provide natural healing when we are sick and our bodies are in need of assistance to overcome disease.

Our true spiritual nature is one that is characterized by a knowledge that the Universe is here to nourish and sustain us by providing for our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. By turning to God in an authentic and intimate way when needs arise, He will make us aware of the sustenance and healing that exists all around us. In this day and age that information will come to us in a variety of forms – through other people, websites, audio tapes, books, articles, posts, etc. A lot of this information will come from Doctors of Integrative Medicine, chiropractors, health coaches, homeopaths, herbalists, and anyone else who has an avid thirst for healing knowledge and seeks a more holistic way. There are also plenty of allopathic doctors who are true healers, as well, they are just hard to find, at times. The Internet has become a tremendous treasure trove of health related information that anyone can access. Though you will need to learn how to separate the false from the true, the more you learn, the better you will become at discernment.

You will know when you have found the true way when what you hear speaks to your heart. Anyone with cancer who is told they must undergo chemo therapy that promises a 25% chance of survival to heal themselves receives this information with fear and foreboding. That is because the allopathic cure for cancer is often worse than the disease. If it doesn’t kill the patient outright,  it probably will within five years.  It is not only toxic, it destroys gut flora, which in turn destroys the immune system, leaving one wide open for another cancer or degenerative disease to take its place. Because the cure is a lie, it does not speak to anyone’s heart. Rather, it speaks to the part of the mind that can be manipulated by fear and does what it is told even if the cure seems ridiculous.

On the other hand, the truth never makes us feel bad. Rather, it gives us hope. Its honesty is honored and we become motivated to do what we need to do because we cherish our lives, not because we are afraid to lose them.  This is the true nature of the spiritual journey. We must learn to separate the truth from the lies, and then, in faith, act upon what our heart tells us is true. It is up to each and every one of us to reprogram our minds with the truth instead of the corporate lies that pass for science that we’ve been led to believe. The government, the media, your doctor, the pharmaceutical companies won’t do this for us for our sickness is far too lucrative a commodity for them to just throw away.

In addition to the cleansing work we all must do, modern technology is also providing us with powerful  tools to augment that which God created, for God not only exists in the Universe as the Divine Intelligence that creates all things , God exists within each one of us as our own divine intelligence when we are aligned with that which is good, loving, intelligent, healing, nurturing and regenerative.  Low Level Lasers use intensified light to heal the body at a cellular level. Rife machines produce frequencies that destroy the bacteria, parasites, molds, and microbes that eat us alive and degenerate us with their toxic waste products. By adding a current of electricity to the pulse points on the wrist, the Bob Beck blood electrification device kills microbes that live in the blood. Kangen water purifiers not only oxygenate and purify water, they alkalinize it as well, making your body an inhospitable host to disease-causing pathogens. PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields) revitalizes the human body  by returning it to the natural electromagnetic energy of the earth that existed before the onset of electrical wires, cell phone towers, wifi, Smart Meters and other unnatural forms of electromagnetic energy, and oh so many more.  By using these tools in addition to cleaning up our inner and outer environment, it is more than possible to restore the body to its original pristine condition. It is only then that we will feel better, think better and have greater control over our emotions, for the body, mind, soul, and spirit are completely intertwined and cannot be separated.
