When I speak at
seminars and conferences, people often approach me after my
presentation to ask my advice about their health issues or pick
my brain about the latest health or diet "fads."
But recently, one
guy asked me a very insightful question that went WAY beyond how
to help with acid reflux or what I thought of Jenny Craig.
He said to me:
"So many people are hurting these days and we have all these
terrible diseases--what do you think is causing this and what
can we do about it?"
There are a number
of factors that contribute to disease, but far and away the most
predominant one in the US (and many other countries) is CHRONIC
different faces of inflammation
foremost, it's important to understand that ALL inflammation is
not created equal.
your body's natural response to challenges like infections,
injuries or insect bites. Inflammation is a sign that your
body's "repairmen" (including your immune cells and cholesterol)
have come to your rescue and are doing their job to "fix" the
problem and get you back to normal.
Once the healing
process is underway, inflammation naturally subsides.
But the problem
arises when inflammation is NOT related to an isolated health
challenge, but instead is caused by other factors and becomes
constant and chronic.
That's when Dr.
Jekyll becomes Mr. Hyde.
inflammation goes FAR beyond the simple healing of a wound and
instead manifests itself as conditions like arthritis,
atherosclerosis, fibromyalgia, migraines, myositis (muscle
pain), accelerated aging, Type II diabetes, stroke and
degenerative joint disease.
Why do SO
many people have it?
Millions of people
are walking around in a chronic state of inflammation and we
have the disease statistics to prove it.
According to the
CDC, 7 out of 10 deaths among Americans each year are from
chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer and stroke alone account
for more than half of all deaths each year.
And it has been
estimated that at least half of us have at least one chronic
So the begging
question is, what's going on? Why are SO many people suffering
with chronic inflammatory conditions?
The answer is
Because causes of
chronic inflammation are ALL around us.
inflammation can be caused by things like environmental toxins
and medications (both prescription and OTC).
But far and away the most common causes are:
1- Acid wastes from food and cell metabolism
2- Inappropriate immune responses
3- An Omega-3 essential fatty acid deficiency
4- Vitamin B6 deficiency
Here's the scoop
on each and more importantly, what you can do about them to help
keep chronic inflammation (and the resulting disease) FAR away
acid wastes--the biggest reducer of inflammation
Acid waste buildup
is the number ONE most widespread, significant cause of chronic
Acid wastes are
the natural by-product of digestion and cell metabolism. And
when your body is working like it should, these wastes can be
easily eliminated through your bowel movements, urine or sweat.
But the problem
arises when your digestion is poor and your body can't
effectively eliminate all of the acid wastes. Instead they
accumulate in your gut and seep out into your bloodstream
through the intestinal wall.
Once they're in
your blood, they're more destructive than a bull in a china
shop. They can travel EVERYWHERE and light fires of inflammation
all along the way.
inflammation can cause such a wide variety of problems like I
mentioned above. Everywhere is fair game because your
bloodstream goes everywhere.
digestion (and acid waste accumulation) is mainly the result of
eating foods that are inherently acid-creating (especially fast
food and packaged foods) and hard to digest meal combinations.
But just as easily
as you add to your acid waste buildup by eating the WRONG foods,
you can turn it around VERY quickly by simply eating the RIGHT
foods. The human body is amazing in that it can bounce back and
overcome years and even DECADES of abuse and injury.
But you have to
give it the proper inner environment for it to bounce back.
And that is
precisely what following my advice in the Great Taste
No Pain health system will help you achieve.
The Great Taste No
Pain system is designed to help you cleanse your body internally
which in turn helps reduce inflammation.
The GTNP manuals
will spell out the few simple things you need to do to
dramatically improve your digestion and help eliminate acid
wastes, which means less inflammation.
your body's immune responses
Your immune system
is always on alert, ready to pounce on a dangerous invader like
an infection or pathogen and eliminate it before it causes you
sometimes it gets mixed up and instead attacks healthy tissues
instead, leading to chronic inflammation.
inappropriate actions by your immune system are a major
contributing factor in painful autoimmune diseases such as
rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and Crohn's.
But what can help
this problem immensely is the right probiotics.
the development of "regulatory T cells" in your immune system.
These T cells act like a natural peace-keeper and can help
reduce mixed-up immune responses and, as a result, help curb

3- Get the
proper ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFAs
A deficiency in
Omega-3 essential fatty acids is a leading cause of
Omega-3 essential fatty acids works together in your body to
help you deal with temporary challenges like wounds or injuries.
Omega-6 EFAs stir up inflammation, which sounds the signal for
the healing process to begin.
Once healing is
underway, Omega-3 EFAs come in and calm everything down.
But the problem
arises when you have too many inflammation-causing Omega-6 EFAs
in your system, but not enough anti-inflammatory Omega-3s. Then
you're practically putting out the welcome mat for chronic
And since our
typical modern diets are LOADED with Omega-6 EFAs and seriously
lacking Omega-3 EFAs, most people have a serious imbalance going
And they've got
the aches, pains and chronic inflammation to prove it!
So it's crucial to
make sure your Omega-3 supply is what is should be with a pure

newest factor-Vitamin B6 deficiency
A new study
published in the Journal of Nutrition has shown a strong
association between chronic inflammation and Vitamin B6
2,229 people the researchers found that those with the lowest
levels of Vitamin B6 in their blood had the highest levels of
chronic inflammation, based on a wide variety of indicators.
On the flip side, those with the MOST B6 circulating in the bloodstream were also
the LEAST likely to have signs of inflammation.
Now, the good news
here is that a shortage of Vitamin B6 can be VERY easy to
You just need to
make sure you eat foods that are natural sources of B6 AND make
sure your body's actually absorbing the B6 (and all your other
