I dealt with (and am still dealing with) many problems due to GMO foods and what they do to the gut.
Did you know that heart burn isn't because of too much acid? It's because you have too little and the flap to your esophagus doesn't close...
similar to how a toilet bowl stops filling after the water gets to a certain level in the tank. Instead of taking Rolaids and Tums and Prilosec and
Zantac.... try taking a spoonful of apple cider vinegar
! Don't believe me, just try it the next time you have heart burn and you can U2U me
with your thank yous. It's a problem of not enough acid, not a problem of too much, but this is completely contrary to what they have been taught and
want you to believe. GERD as it's known, is reflux due to the flap sticking. Investigate why that happens a bit more and you'll see that it's
because there is not enough hydrochloric acid in your stomach to interact properly with the foods and so your stomach thinks you are still eating and
leaves the flap open. This allows acid to creep up into the esophagus creating the feeling of indigestion and heart burn. TRY THE VINEGAR NEXT TIME
THIS HAPPENS and you will have relief within minutes. Then, look at ways to increase your acid levels by eating certain types of foods.
GMO foods cause this problem. They specifically reduce the enzymes and acids needed to break down foods. Most processed foods lack the natural enzymes
that are included in fresh foods, and these natural enzymes "pre-digest" your foods so that it requires less of those special enzymes from your gut.
They are not simple for your body to produce and require many things, but mostly proteins (which most people don't get enough of as it is). This is
why foods that grow naturally already have what your body needs to break them down, and yet, when processed, these are mostly removed. You ask why the
GMO/Big Corp. Food companies would do this to our foods? Well, this is a conspiracy site... it's because the same people who sit at the top of the
GMO/Big Agri companies, ALSO sit on top of the big PHARMA companies. They know as you consume the foods (which the human body can't naturally
break down the same way as natural, organic foods), you'll end up also consuming all of their products and pharmaceuticals. (such as Rolaids,
Prilosec, Zantac, etc.) They get you coming and going.
I suffered from a whole range of diseases and ailments until very recently, where now I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The
long term damage from eating "cheaper" is unreal, but I'm finally in the healing stages. And contrary to what they would have you think, you can
find organic foods just about everywhere, even in the city, and it won't cost you that much more than what you spend on garbage.
I'll say this... if you have grandparents still alive, ask them how they ate when they were kids and that is how you should be eating. Buy FRESH
vegetables and fruits (always try to get organic first but even non-organic is better than canned or frozen), free range meats, and COOK your own
! I can't stress the importance of this... use all fresh organic ingredients and cook every one of your meals. Most people are just lazy and
don't want to take the time to do this, but I can tell you first hand... diseases that are considered incurable have more to do with what you're
giving your body to work with than anything else.
Garbage in = garbage out.
I suffered with HORRIBLE eczema for most of my life... was told by at least a dozen doctors that I would never get rid of it and that it was
"incurable". I'm happy to say, that is not true. With the right change in diet, the proper BALANCED intake of the right nutrients (ignore the food
pyramid, it's total BS!), I have gotten rid of eczema (for now) and many other problems that I was dealing with. It took a little help from a GOOD
naturopedic doctor, but I'm miles apart from where I was just a few years ago. I don't take any meds anymore for anything, where I was convinced at
one point that I had to take 8-9 different ones 3-4 times a day... and all they did was make me worse, not better. And it all started with problems in
Your gut is your second immune system... if it doesn't function properly, NOTHING you eat will do you any good unless it's fed through an IV... this
is what gluten and GMO foods do to your innards. This is how they keep the doctor's offices packed and the sheeple begging for more pharma. Get your
gut in check by eating probiotic foods, like yogurt. Make sure you take in enough calcium and magnesium (this isn't just for old people) and get
plenty of B vitamins every single day. These are just some things that help a lot of people, but there are plenty more and this is a growing trend.
Our ancestors didn't evolve eating the crap we have today, so why should we expect our bodies to suddenly adapt or evolve in a couple of
generations? This is the ultimate ignorance on behalf of people! Eat as close to how your ancestors did (within reason) and you'll be amazed at how
efficiently your body runs.
Once you get healthy, it is an addiction in itself to push yourself to become even more healthy. Put companies like Monsanto and Dow out of business
by NOT consuming their products anymore. How many CEO's of these companies would consume any of their own products? I'd pay to see it.
Good post OP and S&F for you!
