#1 Cause of DISEASE = Toxins & The Gut
An unhealthy gut, ignored, leads to disease. Ask me about pretty much any disease, and I can show you how it relates to the gut.
In America, we have overweight people who are malnourished. Think about it. How many times does the average American pick up McDonald's or a hot ‘n ready on their way home from work? An entire meal devoid of nutrients. How many times a week do you eat fast food? Versus how many times per week do you cook for yourself a meal that includes a protein, a veggie and a good quality fat? Add up the numbers. It is eye-opening when you write down everything you consume. Just once per week eating fast food destroys the gut. More than that? You can kiss your health goodbye.
I am speaking from experience. Both professionally and personally. I have destroyed my body more than once. And I have picked myself back up out of the hole I dug, brushed myself off and started over. It’s time we take back our health. What you are eating now will affect you 5 years down the road. It’s a downward cycle that we have to jump in and stop, so that we don’t end up with an autoimmune disorder, diabetes, heart disease, or cancer.
I have several clients who are trying to lose weight, and they’ve cut out sugar and grains, brought their carb number down, and still are struggling. So what are we missing here? It’s typically hormonal. When you have chemicals coming into your system, and they embed themselves on the cell walls, especially fat cells, the leptin (fat burning hormone) can’t get in and out of the cell. When the hormones are off, it’s difficult to burn fat.
Dr. Pompa claims that his Cellular Healing Diet (which reduces sugars and things that break down quickly into sugars (grains), along with reducing the toxin load, almost every single one of his clients can now lose weight. https://drpompa.com/diet/cellular-healing-diet/
This approach is healing the gut, the brain, the pancreas, the liver, and the rest of the endocrine system (hormones). Digestion is key. If you can’t break down your food, how can you heal your body?
You know you’re not breaking down your food if your bowel movements are too hard, too loose, or not as often as I mentioned above. Three times a day! Once after each meal. Are you able to do that? If not, then change needs to happen with both your toxin load and your food choices.
Look at what types of cleaning solutions you have in your house. Can you read the ingredient list? Just because you can read the word bleach, however, does not mean it’s healthy. Bleach is chlorine and it damages the thyroid. [Do you swim in a pool every day or bromine filled hot tub in the winter? Look at your thyroid – is it okay?] I use Young Living essential oil products to clean the house and office like Thieves Household Cleaner. Sometimes I simply use a Norwex cloth and water. Both are deep cleaning. Norwex will make your sink sparkle!
If your gut is “off” and you’re not seeing the snake in the toilet, then we need to repair the gut. We typically look to the following:
My goal is to help people find true healing. True health. Healing the body from the inside out. And the gut affects every organ, so it’s a great place to start. Begin with protein, veggies, and good quality fats 3 times a day, cooked on a stove top not in the microwave to retain it’s nutrition. You’ve got this! You can heal your body too, just like I am doing!
You are WORTH IT to take the time to eat real food!

Do you have skin problems? Digestive issues including constipation or diarrhea? Muscle or joint pain? Tired all the time? And how about that list of mystery symptoms that no one seems to be able to figure out?
I am talking about the unmentionables, so come prepared for a lively discussion that you would not hear around the water cooler. At this 1-hour workshop, we will discuss how and why to do a spring cleanse, and what options are efficient for detoxing.
