[00:00:00] Hey Dr. Randy Michaux here, doctor of chiropractic and your cell detox coach soon to be drrandymichaux.com. So on Monday we talked about a really important question, what is health? And we defined health as complete physical, mental, social well-being and not just the absence of disease or infirmities. This definition comes from World Health Organization. So what I want to address today is “What would cause my body not to be well.” How does disease arise? How does the whole process happen? How can we liken this to a three legged stool?
The first leg is your microbiome, or more simply your gut.
The second leg are your stressors. Now you might be saying yeah everyone says it's stress but they're primarily three stresses.
[00:01:51] These three stresses come in the form of physical, chemical and emotional toxicity.
[00:02:08] The third leg of the stool is our DNA. Inflammation, driven by these first two legs of the stool change the expression of our DNA from expressing health to expressing disease.
Let’s rank our cells from 1 - 10, 10 is optimal.
[00:03:21] Hopefully at birth our cells are a 10 out of 10, the healthiest they can be. Hypothetically if we start off with level 10 cells they should replicate and form other level 10 cells. Immediately though or in many cases, the baby is bombarded with stressors and toxins. Antibiotics, vaccinations, formula, sugars, and more.
[00:04:00] Now the health of the cells change, let’s say they become level 8 cells. These will replicate and form additional level 8 cells. Healthy, but not as healthy as they were. What happens from birth to age 10 - sugar, more vaccines, processed foods, multiple rounds of antibiotics and list goes on. On every side their cells are affected by a toxic world and level 8 cells are now level 5 cells, replicating other level 5 cells.
Anxiety, ADHD, skin conditions, constipation are a norm in society. The truth is, the body is expressing a chronic inflamed, diseased state and more and more unhealthy cells are being made. Health starts and ends in the cell. Chronic cellular inflammation drives the cell to express disease and the symptoms are a manifestation of that.
How can you combat this toxic environment, I'll give you one tip that I do in my life and that I try to encourage my kids to do as well. And that is to eat less often. Constant snacking elevates and maintains a high level of glucose and insulin that is a main cause for this inflamed state. What do you do, go back to 3 square meals per day and cut out all the snacks in between. This is going to do a number of things for the body including lowering and regulating both insulin and glucose, enabling the gut to rest and heal, thus lowering the inflammatory load on the body.
As inflammation reduces, the innate healing of the body kicks in and health begins to improve. It won’t happen all at once, but bit by bit the bad cells die off and gut cells are produced again.
[00:07:28] Slow that progression down. Again I'd love to ask. I'd love for you to reply to respond. What are you doing to improve your health this summer. What questions do you have also on what how do I tackle these other legs of the stool. So again what is health. Health is the complete wellness in physical emotional spiritual well-being and not just the not just the mere absence of disease or infirmity. Health is this health is health should radiate from US health. Is this complete ability to be again as it says physically mentally spiritually strong and secure.
