Sensitivitiy Load Phenomenon

It seems to just appear overnight, but this is usually not the case

Angela came to see me complaining of asthma and chronic sinusitis. She had previously experienced a stuffy nose from time to time, but she had never been asthmatic. “It seemed to just appear overnight,” she told me. I discovered that two years earlier when her asthma began, she had had a severe flu that had put her out of work for a month. Around the same time, some significant stressors came into her life. Her mother died of cancer, and Angela began to develop premenopausal symptoms.
After a complete examination at my clinic in Mill Valley, testing on a new advanced EAV machine and new advanced protocols, I found her sensitive to her own hormones, certain flu viruses, multiple environmental and chemical substances, sugar, dairy products, and grains. It soon became apparent to me that Angela was experiencing the sensitivity load phenomenon. Since Angela’s immune system had been significantly challenged, certain hidden sensitivities began to manifest themselves. Her body became overly sensitive, and she developed symptoms of asthma. In other words, this condition did not happen overnight. In fact, most of Angela’s sensitivities had been there for many years. They just required the right set of circumstances to create a tipping point and move from hidden to visible. Her symptoms radically changed after relieving her sensitivities, establishing good nutrition and digestion and clearing her with a very advanced desensitization technique I developed that I use at my clinic in Mill Valley.

The Keys to Immune Health

If you suffer from allergies, sensitivities, or one of the numerous immune disorders in which they can result, it can feel as if you were handed down a sentence of life-long misery. My latest book shows you that there are steps that can be taken to facilitate the body’s healing processes. Of paramount importance is that sensitivities can be detected and subsequently cleared. This can be done in several different ways, but in my experience the most effective and dependable methods are what are often described as ‘energetic’ interventions. For example, sensitivities can be identified using computerized skin resistance or capacitance testing.

Of equal importance, the immune system can be strengthened through good digestion and proper absorption of nutrients. The most important piece of advice regarding this is to eat a healthy diet that is supplemented by full spectrum, vegetarian digestive enzymes. And although it sounds trivial, thoroughly chewing your food plays a major role in exposing a much greater surface area of those foods to enzymatic action.

Even if the above recommendations are followed, an overload of toxins in the body can thwart the best of efforts. Toxicity overload can be decreased by avoiding, as best as possible, some of the many toxins that pervade our environment. For example, eating organic foods, drinking spring or RO water, and spending more time out in the country air can all help decrease various toxins. You can also prevent toxicity overload by optimizing the function of the liver, bowel, and other critical organs of detoxification.

The Various Categories of Sensitivities

There are innumerable substances to which the immune system can become sensitive. There are the classic allergens, such as foods, environmental, and airborne allergens. But there are also a great many other things to which the body can react. In order to review the plethora of possible reactants, I have categorized them. The categories include infectants, also known as pathogens, ingestants, inhalants, environmental allergens, atmospheric conditions, and injectants. Of course, there are many more substances to which the body can become sensitive than have been described here. In fact, an individual can become sensitive to almost anything.

Why Avoid Processed Foods?

Even when the foods you are eating are considered to be ‘healthy’ foods, like vegetables and fruits, they may not have the same nutritional value they were once considered to have if they have been ‘processed’. There are a number of reasons for this. Here are some of them.

We all know that processing foods can strip away vital nutrients. For example, removing the nutrient-dense part of a food, such as removing the ‘germ’ or the peel, can remove important vitamins and other phytonutrients. This leaves behind what have been referred to as ’empty calories’, which are more of a metabolic burden for the body.

Heating food denatures proteins, including the enzymes that would otherwise be active and available during the digestive process. By the way, cooking meat at high heat causes the formation of heterocyclic amines, which are known carcinogens. Heating can also convert unsaturated fats into trans-fats, which the body is not designed to deal with. Exposure to heat and even light can cause fats to become rancid.

Many foods are processed to increase their shelf life. One way this is accomplished is by removing nutrients, which microorganisms would otherwise use to reproduce. Another way is to add preservatives, many of which can be unhealthy in themselves, as can flavor enhancers, thickening agents, and other additives. However, many individuals are sensitive to several or many of these, causing a further health burden.

The best rule of thumb is to eat foods that look the way they did when they were harvested. Ideally, the foods you eat should not be processed at all. Of course, in the western world it is almost impossible to eat completely unprocessed food, but the goal should be to eat food that is as minimally processed as possible (and organically grown when available).

Here’s to your health.

MicroMiracles Enzyme Supplements

As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, a few years ago, I began formulated three different 100% vegetarian, broad spectrum digestive enzyme supplements under the brand name MicroMiraclesTM. Each was designed for specific purposes. Unlike the BioSET professional line of supplements, these are directly available to the general public. All three are available on our website, http://www.micromiracles.com/. In previous blogs, I described MicroMiracles Chewable Digestive Enzymes and MicroMiracles GI Calm.*

Today, I want to describe the third MicroMiracles product I formulated. MicroMiracles Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics is a 100% vegetarian, full spectrum digestive enzyme supplement providing a unique blend of enzymes and probiotics to optimize the digestion of all foods, thus minimizing indigestion, malabsorption, and food sensitivities including lactose intolerance. This formulation was designed for those wanting our highest potency full spectrum blend of digestive enzymes with the addition of probiotics. DPP-IV, a proprietary blend of protein-digesting enzymes, has been added to this formulation to maximize digestion of specific proteins including gluten and casein.*

I want to encourage everyone to take a broad spectrum digestive enzyme supplement before meals. Through my years of experience, I have found it to be the single most important supplement for most individuals. Here’s to your optimal health and wellness!

Why do you have arthritis pain and inflammation?

In some people, arthritis can be partially attributed to a sensitivity reaction to common foods, causing swelling and/or pain in the joints. For this reason, when some arthritic patients avoid certain foods or environmental allergens, their symptoms diminish. Acidic foods seem to be especially troublesome, as are plants and vegetables from the nightshade family, which includes tomatoes, white potatoes, eggplant, peppers, and tobacco. Arthritic patients have also been found to be sensitive to bacteria and parasites, which can trigger an auto-immune or auto-aggressive reaction.

Enzymes are ‘MicroMiracles’

I created the BioSET system of healing a number of years ago, and to this day have continued to develop it. The BioSET line of enzyme-based supplements was designed for health care professionals, even for those not using the BioSET system. However, there were many people asking me to formulate a line of full spectrum digestive enzyme supplements available to the general public.

A few years ago I came out with the book, MicroMiracles, in which I wrote about the healing power of enzymes. Without a doubt, the single most important supplement for almost everyone is a 100% vegetarian, broad spectrum digestive enzyme blend to be taken at the start of meals. This will help optimize the digestion of all foods, thus minimizing indigestion, malabsorption, and food sensitivities. Subsequently, I formulated three different 100% vegetarian, broad spectrum digestive enzyme blends under the brand name MicroMiraclesTM. All three are available on our website, MicroMiracles.com

Today, I want to briefly describe the first MicroMiracles product I formulated, MicroMiracles Chewable Digestive Enzymes. This formulation was designed for those wanting a full spectrum blend of digestive enzymes or for those who would prefer a chewable tablet. The chewable tablet is naturally lemon-flavored and sweetened with erythritol, a naturally occurring sweetener that does not produce calories and does not cause stomach upset or aftertaste. The full range of digestive enzymes in this formula are gentle to the stomach and perfect for individuals of all ages, including children, mature adults, or anyone having difficulty swallowing capsules.*

In subsequent Blogs, I’ll talk about the other two supplements in our MicroMiracles line, each designed for specific purposes.*

Allergies are more than just genetic

bouquet of flowers

Do you wake up feeling tired even though you have had a good nights sleep. You may have allergies or sensitivities. The most common cause of allergies appears to be genetic. The second-most-common cause of the development of sensitivities is poor digestion. If a food is not being properly digested, it may eventually begin to trigger a sensitivity reaction in the body. One common contributor to leaky gut syndrome is poor digestion. Currently, the best way to identify leaky gut syndrome is to monitor symptoms. People who have the condition can help themselves by taking digestive enzymes with every meal, taking probiotic supplements daily to correct any imbalance among beneficial and harmful bacteria in the gut, avoiding the foods to which they are sensitive, and limiting the consumption of fatty foods, caffeine, and alcohol. BioSET can successfully clear those sensitivities- it is truly remarkable and life changing. Learn more reading Clearing the Way to Health and Wellness

An Overlooked Cause of Developing Sensitivities

There are several factors recognized as being related to the development of sensitivities. For example, a number of studies have documented the genetic predisposition of individuals with ‘allergic parents’ developing allergies themselves. Another example is ‘leaky gut syndrome’, in which the lining of the intestines loses its tight junctions between the cells lining the gut and allows larger molecules to enter the bloodstream. These larger molecules are more readily seen as foreign to the body and the immune system reacts to their presence.

In my practice, I have repeatedly seen what appears to be another cause of the development of sensitivities. It can best be described as a learned response. An individual may be exposed to a particular food, chemical, or other stimulus at the same time there is a natural, unlearned response to a different stimulus. For example, a person may begin to cough after drinking some water that ‘went down the wrong way’ while eating a particular food. An unconscious relationship may then develop between eating that particular food and coughing. Coughing becomes a learned response to eating that food. The person may subsequently be diagnosed with a reactive airway disease, especially if the coughing response becomes more generalized, being brought on by other stimuli as well.

Fortunately, once the reactant is identified, it can be desensitized using BioSET clearing. The learned response is then extingusihed by the clearing. I have seen many patients have remarkable turnarounds after the clearing(s) and their previous diagnoses changed by their diagnosticians.
