What do Ulcerative Colitis, PMS, Reyes Syndrome and Psychological Distress all have in common? Well, they don’t have anything in common unless you look at the CAUSE. Diagnosis, finding the causes of health concerns, is the MOST important aspect of health care. Can you imagine a fighter jet that is not properly working and there is a concern by the military that it might crash the next time it goes up if things are not repaired and instead of repairing the jet they just put on new wings and load it up with fancy bombs? Will that get it to fly better? No, you need to know WHY it is not flying properly to begin with. My patients who come in to see me are puzzles and I am a puzzle solver. Reyes Syndrome is a condition in which their is swelling in the liver and brain. The thing that all of these conditions mentioned in the title have in common is that they are all caused by excessive amounts of sugars and/or complex carbohydrates in the diet.
Much of the information that I have shared in this post comes from a book called “Lick the Sugar Habit” by Nancy Appleton, PhD. However, some of the information comes from a variety of other sources as well.
Did you know that Paul and Barbara Stitt researched behaviors of juvenile delinquents and the advertising methods of large Food Giants for many years and they found out some interesting things. For example, in Barbara Reed Stitt’s book, Food and Behavior, she shares that nearly 60% of the American population or more is hypoglycemic. (This means that they experience low blood sugar.) She worked in a juvenile detention center for a number of years and discovered that nearly every single one of the young people that were in Juvenile Hall had imbalanced blood sugar. When she helped these young people with dietary changes to balance their blood sugar, over 90% of them had improvements in their behavior. They became less aggressive. They were able to think more clearly and were less irritable and far, far less likely to commit crimes. In fact, many of them were able to be released early on good behavior and went on to become valuable members of society.
What is the story with Parkinson’s Disease?
I never thought you would ask. The medical profession tries to make anything related to health care or medicine and anatomy and pathology super duper complicated. I admit that there are a number of intricacies of the human body that are rather dumbfounding. However, the basics are not necessarily that difficult to understand with some basic physiology and anatomy and biology courses. For example, sugar causes aging in the body and directly attacks nerve cells. Sugar is only one molecule different than cocaine. It stimulates the brain in a very similar way to the way in which cocaine stimulates the brain. It is highly addictive. So many of these “unexplainable” and “mysterious” and “unknown cause” diseases are actually rather straightforward in terms of their pathophysiology. (Pathophysiology means the way in which the disease developed. A similar word is pathogenesis.) Sugar comes and attacks nerve cells in the brain and throughout the body and after a number of years, this leads to true destruction of the the entire nervous system. This brings about most of our modern chronic diseases. One of the most classic among these modern chronic diseases is Parkinson’s Disease. I have a challenge for you. Find me someone, anyone, that has Parkinson’s Disease that is not a sweet and carb addict, or, is not a recovering sweet tooth (someone who used to eat a lot of simple and/or complex carbohydrates with a high glycemic index is a recovering sweet tooth.) These sugars are the thing that attack the nervous system. But wait….this is just the beginning. When the body is no longer able to handle the sugars, it starts to rot. Did you read that correctly? Is the author of this post, Dr. Ilya, really suggesting that the body rots? Well, yes, I am. The body begins to rot due to all of the sugars that cause it to break down. This is better known as mold, yeast, fungus and candida infections. This then leads to more and more toxins in the persons body, difficulty with clear thinking, exhaustion, visual loss and a wide variety of other symptoms due to the infection. In fact there is an entire variety of other infections that have been shown to mutate from mold and fungus. These infections are called Chlamydia, Epstein Bar Virus, Cytobacterial Virus, Cytomegalo Virus, Cytomegalo Bacteria, Rickettsia and even other pathogens that are less clearly understood. However, these are the main ones. Do any of the pathogens on this list sound familiar? Did you think that Chlamydia only affected people as an STD? Much of this information comes from Dr. Victor Frank and Total Body Modification.
