We have known for more than a decade that “inflammation” is not only responsible for cardio-metabolic disease but for most of our chronic diseases including aging itself (Inflamaging).
Recent research shows that inflammation begins in the GUT primarily as a result of the modern Western diet.
In addition to diet, infections and other environmental toxins, hormonal imbalance, activity level, nutritional deficiencies, relationships and world-view all determine how inflamed you are and how well your mitochondria are working.
Genes may load the gun but your lifestyle ‘pulls the trigger’ and this is why our physicians use the I.N.T.E.G.R.A.L. program to reduce inflammation and reverse chronic disease. Only by this whole person practice approach will we be able to help our clients and reduce the global crisis of chronic disease.
