Q: What are the biggest environmental factors contributing to diseases that have an inflammatory origin?
A: I believe from studying nutrition research and my own personal testimony, the choices we make about the foods we eat and how much we consume are the biggest factors. Changing this aspect of our lifestyle is one of the hardest things to do. I know from experience, as I had to eliminate wheat, gluten, and sugar from my diet because it exacerbated some of my major and worst symptoms when I had Lyme disease.
Q: Can you give us some suggestions on what we can do?
A: There are environmental factors that we can control, such as eating whole foods much like what our Grandparents consumed. Today, the average family is so busy, we typically only take a total of one hour each day to prepare meals.
According to Michael Pollan’s latest book, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, some scientist and doctors in disease research believe today we are consuming food-like substances rather than food. In addition to our poor nutrition factor, another factor is that only a small percentage of people reserve the necessary time to recalibrate and recharge their body, mind, and soul.
Then, when exposed to body burdens which include viruses, pathogens, and bacterial organisms, perverse energy, (hot spots/EMFs), our bodies systems break down one by one, disabling its ability to function effectively as a whole. In a proactive response, the immune system goes into its natural way of defending itself by seeking and destroying the uninvited body burdens. In turn, this starts the process of the autoimmune/auto-inflammatory response. The body then becomes the “Perfect Host®” for disease”.
STEPS TO TAKE:
- Make better choices about food. When at the grocery store concentrate on the outer perimeter of the store where things are fresh, organic and non-processed.
- Eat lots of foods containing antioxidants.
- REMEMBER TAKE TIME TO RELAX AND DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE TO DO.
Q: What are the therapies that could be beneficial to reducing inflammation and boosting the immune system?
A: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has proven to be a wonderful integrative therapy to use for:
- Preventative & Restorative Therapy in:
- Tissue and cell restoration (Including the brain)
- Reduction of Inflammation
- Immune System Function
There are approximately 60 medical indications being treated worldwide, using HBOT either by itself or in combination with other prescribed medications/nutriceuticals and protocols.
Individuals with neurodegenerative disease & injury such as autism, stroke and cerebral palsy have shown to have beneficial results using HBOT. Athletes are using the chambers for faster turn around time in injuries and training. Plastic surgeons are providing faster and better results by utilizing HBOT before and after surgery.
Q: What is HBOT?
A: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is recognized, accepted and used for numerous physical and neurological injuries and dysfunctions. This therapy enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. For example, take an injury – accident related, or brought on by environmental factors. Our body’s natural proactive response to the injury activates granulocytes that lead to a sudden increase in oxygen consumption. 90% oxygen is consumed by the body’s need to heal itself.
The result, reactive oxygen species are activated and oxidative stress increases.
Just as a car needs fuel to function, humans need oxygen. The body has the ability to replace every single cell with a brand new copy of itself every year or so. We can recover from disease and improve the quality of the body due to the continuous cell renewal effort of the body, provided that we are using the correct fuel mixture and not adding to our body burden.
Oxygen under pressure provides a positive and proactive fuel in assisting the body’s struggle to preserve health.
