The Root Of All Disease…


Did you know there’s ONE thing that all diseases, health issues, and conditions such as weight gain, thyroid imbalances, low energy, autoimmunity, high cholesterol, cancer, Alzheimer’s, brain fog, and more have in common?


Inflammation slowly accumulates over time and silently brings people to their wit’s end about their health, and it can even end a person’s life.

As Dr. Mercola once said…

“The presence of inflammation is what makes most diseases perceptible to an individual. It can and often does occur for years before it exists at levels sufficient to be apparent or clinically significant. How long it has been smoldering really determines the degree of severity of a disease and often the prognosis, assuming the inflammation can be controlled. One could also argue that without inflammation, the most disease would not even exist.”

Inflammation is not something widely talked about in your typical doctor’s office unless it relates to a fractured bone, bruise, concussion, or other physical injuries. Yet inflammation is the body’s number one response to just about any imbalance going on in the body.

Inflammation cannot always be seen, felt, or heard, so it often goes undetected and overlooked.

There are two kinds of inflammation:

  1. Acute – a brief response to injury or illness lasting only a few days
  2. Chronic- when it stops being acute and remains as a low-level constant response to ongoing stress on the body

Acute inflammation is a healthy response that allows your body to repair and heal, but when it becomes chronic, it becomes problematic.

Chronic inflammation is when your body is consistently bombarded by various causes of inflammation and eventually loses its ability to regulate the inflammatory response. This overly active inflammatory response can damage cells and tissues, resulting in conditions such as leaky gut, autoimmunity, heart disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and much more.

It can also have a big impact on hormone balance because cortisol (also known as your stress hormone) is your body’s natural anti-inflammatory agent. When inflammation is high and chronic, this disrupts the natural cortisol balance, triggering a downstream dysregulation of other hormones such as thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, which disrupt your sleep, cause weight gain, and drain your energy.

How do you know if chronic inflammation is affecting you?

My friend and colleague, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, has traveled the globe, creating a brand new documentary series called “The Inflammation Equation” that explores ways to support your body’s natural healing process by lowering the #1 roadblock to healing: inflammation.

This informative documentary series explores practical strategies to:

  • Identify (and overcome) potential underlying causes of inflammation.
  • Discover effective methods to support your body’s natural healing processes.
  • Learn from leading global experts in the field of health and wellness.

The series features insights from renowned figures like Jeffrey Bland, PhD, Bruce Lipton, PhD, me and even Fran Drescher, plus over 50 other paradigm-shifting leaders.

The series starts April 4th, so mark your calendar and GRAB YOUR ACCESS PASS.

These are some of the most common signature signs of chronic inflammation, especially if you have two or more:

  • Allergies or asthma (especially if it progressively gets worse)
  • Constant body aches and pains (muscle and joint)
  • High blood pressure or cholesterol
  • Restless sleep, fatigue and/or lethargy
  • Any autoimmune disorder (Hashimoto’s, Colitis, Celiac, Crohn’s, etc.)
  • Get sick with a cold, flu or virus multiple times a year
  • Bouts of anxiety and/or depression
  • Constipation and/or diarrhea
  • Skin rashes, acne and breakouts

And the list could go on for a long time.

All of us have some inflammation from time to time. You might even be able to pinpoint times when it is worse after eating certain foods or during a full moon when water in the body is being moved by the gravitational pull of the moon.

But as Dr. Mercola said, “It (inflammation) can and often does occur for years before it exists at levels sufficient to be apparent or clinically significant.”

The accumulation of inflammatory triggers over time burdens the body, eventually resulting in chronic inflammation. This is why we feel it more as we get older, not just because we are getting older, but because more time has passed for inflammation to accumulate.

How can you reverse the effects of chronic inflammation?

Reducing inflammation for each person can be different depending on what their top triggers are, but in general (for everyone), these are the most important things you can do to reduce your daily inflammatory load:

  • Avoid inflammatory foods such as gluten, dairy, soy, added sugar and alcohol
  • Eat organic fruits and veggies free of herbicides and pesticides
  • Minimize environmental toxins in drinking water, air, personal care, and cleaning products
  • Have an outlet for mental/emotional stress, such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing

Understanding what triggers inflammation for you and taking steps to reduce it is one of the ways you can unlock answers about your health, reduce your risk for disease, and prolong your life.

You might be wondering why don’t we have a cure for everything if we know that inflammation is the root of all diseases.

Well, we actually do, you just have to take matters into your own hands, and I’m excited to be a part of a health revolution to help you be your own Health Boss.

It’s an honor and a privilege to share parts of my health journey and expertise in The Inflammation Equation documentary series to help others like you achieve your ideal health and weight, and defy everything we’ve been told about aging like I have.
