FIFTY-PERCENT, 50%, OF OUR MID-BRAIN CHEMICALS ARE MADE IN THE INTESTINAL TRACT! And why not? Our "Second Brain" is right there, the Solar Plexus, which is a good out-of-town trial for brain chemical levels. It's a great feedback system.
Should you take drugs that tinker with your brain chemicals to alleviate the intestinal chemical imbalances that make you goofy? Sure, you might have to use them as a stop-gap measure. How about fixing your guts? Start looking at the likely culprit, the chemical imbalance caused by a punky Gastro-Intestinal Tract. Protect intestinal integrity.
Start by eating clean, organic, raw foods when available (excepting RAW Carrots. Legumes, like Soybeans, and RAW (though not cooked) Carrots, block the uptake of Iodine
to the Thyroid, and slow down the traction action of the bowels. So does Flax Seed Oil. These are called "Goitrogens."
Honestly consider the state of your digestion and nutrient absorption. Does your stomach have a good, healthy growl when hungry? If not, something is wrong. Are those stools floating? You can't be digesting fats and oils then. Consider Digestive Enzymes, and/or Hydrochloric Acid supplementation for those who are low on stomach acid per your health care provider. Start browsing CUREZONE, keep doing research on intestinal maladies and their cures at http://www.google.com
or some other search engine. Here are some talking points:
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Leaky Gut Syndrome, or LGS, is the name for that host of symptoms which result from hyper-permeability of the intestines. Undigested food particles are allowed to leak into the bloodstream--as are yeast and parasites--and can cause a chronic sub-acute allergic reaction, not to mention the attendant toxicity.
Leaky Gut Syndrome can be caused by Gluten Intolerance, stripping the little fingers, villi, off of the intestinal wall. Avoid the B.R.O.W.S. foods: Barley, Rye, Oats, Wheat, Spelt. Gluten Intolerance can be triggered by a sub-acute "leftover" infection, Giardia Pneumoniae, which also attacks the gut "brushes." Might want to try Silver Colloid for that.
Leaky Gut Syndrome can be caused by Candida or "Yeast" rooting through the intestinal wall. Intestinal Candida is a given after taking Antibiotics
, no matter how long ago. Get on a serious anti-Candida protocol, with Undecylenic Acid being the most potent over-the-counter yeast killer. There are sources on the net who have pure Undecylenic Acid. It is also contained in Para-Gone, and NATROL's Candida Cure.
Don't eat refined sugar, sweet fruits or vegetables, yeast breads (have crackers), or NutraSweet, itself a dangerous brain chemical. Fake Sugar
triggers all the same chemical pathways as real sugar. If you MUST eat sugar, don't drip-feed it into your system. Eat it and get it over with, don't keep snacking on Sugar
Leaky Gut Syndrome can be caused by toxicity from Hypo-thyroidism (low thyroid levels) causing low motility, or movement, along the intestinal tract, letting toxins hammer at the gut wall. Petrochemicals, burnt or hydrogenated "fake" fats in our food lay there and uptake into the gut wall. Chemically, it looks like a real oil to the body. But dead or fake fats don't have the "buddy" links of a nutrient oil, won't build healthy tissue, so gut tissue becomes degraded, and the filter mesh gets bigger and bigger. It's like feeding a starving dog a rubber bone.
Leaky Gut Syndrome can be caused by Parasites. One easy protocol is the use of a commercial worming system, like Para-Gone. Silver Colloid can also whack back parasites
in the intestines, used as part of a micro-electric detox program as those available at State of the Art Instruments/sotainstruments.com.
Support gut tissue integrity with real Essential Fatty Acids/EFA's (which can even absorb topically through the skin), like raw Olive Oil, or Borage SEED Oil. Avoid "broken fats," which are like feeding a starving dog a rubber bone: no burnt, fried fats, and no hydrogenated fats from chemical treatment, as found in margarine. Eat real.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant corrective for intestinal hyper-permeability. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fat and water soluble anti-oxidant. It can be slightly irritating, so should be taken in the middle of a meal.
One-half hour before eating, drink a little clean water to hydrate the mucosal lining of the intestines so they will have natural protection. Don't indulge in extreme intestinal cleansing regimens, as this can imbalance Trace Minerals, Kelp being a good source. Do your homework, keep working a system, and STEADY ON! Here's the Foundation of Human Understanding site for their free MEDITATION. It is wonderful and effective. God bless and let's keep one another in prayer.
