Dr. Weeks’ Comment: The human immune system wraps around the 33 feet length of our intestines like an insulation blanket wraps around a water pipe to prevent freezing. In the case of vigilance around our gut, the reason the immune system focuses there is simply because that is the most common entry point for pathogens to try and enter our blood stream. Incompletely digested food fragments, pesticides, herbicides and other pathological agents (heavy metals, RoundUp™ glyphosate) all assault the gut membrane seeking to create “leaky gut” and GI inflammation in order to take you down. Antacids create symbiosis (the wrong critters colonizing your guts) and dietary dairy products also act as antacids and tear down your health. So once your guts are symbiotic – on the fritz – the brain becomes inflamed as well and since inflammation drives all psychiatric ailments, it is no surprise that conventional psychiatrists are starting to connect symbiosis and mental illness. Remember what Abram Hoffer, Ph.D. MD taught: psychosis is a TOXIC response to excessive adrenalin converting to a naturally occurring hallucinogen, adrenochrome.
Treat the guts – all illness begins in the gut.
