The 6 Most Common Causes of Disease
Before we learn about the 4 treatments that stimulate health from the root, it’s important to understand why we become sick in the first place. No matter what conditions you are working through or the diagnoses you have, all disease stems from a combination of the following issues:
Toxins exist in many of our food sources, products, and even environments. These toxins can build up in the body and cause harm to our cells and organs.
Without the proper nutrients, our cells can’t function properly. Unfortunately, the standard diet does not contain all the necessary nutrients our bodies need to function optimally.
Infections are bound to happen once in a while, but chronic or frequent infections wreak havoc on the immune system. The weaker the immune system, the more susceptible we are to disease.
4. Diet and lifestyle
Poor diet and lifestyle choices can set us up for a host of health issues, many of which stem from inflammation. Inflammation, while helpful when fighting an infection, can be detrimental to our body when caused by diet and habits.
Stress is a major cause of nervous system dysfunction, hormone imbalance, immune weakness, inflammation, a lack of restorative sleep, and overall poor health.
6. Epigenetics (body/system weakness)
Epigenetics takes both your genetics and your environment into account. Certain environments, habits, and behaviours can stimulate or repress the expression of genes that put us at risk for chronic disease.
