Health & Wellness
Bodies break down. Your own body, right this minute, is breaking down in one way or another.
Even if you FEEL healthy, there’s probably some insignificant ache or pain you’re ignoring that could be signaling a bigger issue.
50 million Americans have autoimmune diseases: arthritis, certain skin and digestive disorders, lupus—all treated by relieving symptoms because there’s no known cure.
What about hormones? Most of us, men and women alike, experience an imbalance of some sort during adulthood that can decrease libido, increase body weight, sap energy, and affect mood.
Simple gut health isn’t so simple for 70 million people in the United States, accounting for nearly 40 million doctor visits and 8 million emergency room visits each year.
And the fast-paced lifestyle most of us call “normal” leads to stress-induced chronic inflammation, which is linked to the major causes of disease deaths, including heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, stroke, and cancer.
Heart disease alone is listed as the underlying cause of one in every three deaths.
Overwhelmed? Don’t be. The reason these breakdowns happen is actually very simple: the body stops responding to instructions from the genes. There’s a breakdown in communication between what your body is being told to do and what it’s actually doing.
This communication depends on having healthy cells in every system of the body. If the heart cells don’t get a message, for example, they can’t carry out the genetic instructions to keep your heart functioning well.
True health means on turning on the genes that communicate messages to the cells that perform each individual function.
