Cancer as a metabolic disease – An Interview with Dr. Thomas Seyfried

In episode 94 of Cellular Healing TV, I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Thomas Seyfried, the author of  “Cancer as a Metabolic Disease.” A professor of biology at Boston College, his research delves deeply into the subject of cancer as a mitochondrial metabolic disease. In addition, he has taught neurogenetics and neurochemistry as it relates to cancer treatment at Yale University and Boston College for the past 25 years. He has also written numerous peer-reviewed science articles and book chapters, as well as authoring his groundbreaking book.

Cancer as a Metabolic Disease

During our interview, Dr. Thomas Seyfried started out by clarifying that he is not claiming to treat cancer or any disease; rather, he feels that current medical treatments are taking the wrong approach. He points out that billions of dollars are being spent on cancer research, and yet, the number of cancer deaths is not changing. In the last 25 years, there has been approximately a 37% increase in new cases and a 3.5 to 4% increase in the number of deaths per year. If the current treatments were successful, you would expect those numbers to drop. Also, in recent years, cancer genomic research has skyrocketed. In fact, it is estimated that there are at least 700 targeted cancer gene therapies… yet none have been shown to reduce tumors.

Cancer Drugs and Theories

The theory of what drives cancer is unbridled cell proliferation (an increase in the number of bad cells), and most of the therapies being used are focusing on halting the proliferation of those cells. The toxic chemicals (chemotherapy) and radiation are used to stop this cycle. Their treatment goal is to damage tumor cell DNA and stop the uncontrolled growth of the cancer cells.

More recently, the field is turning to genomic approach drugs called checkpoint inhibitors (commonly known as immunotherapy drugs). However, few people are getting immunotherapy drugs because they are extremely costly. More importantly, according to Seyfried, these drugs don’t work for the majority of the people and have very significant side effects. And why don’t they work for every cancer patient? Each cancer cell is genetically unique: no two cells in the tumor are alike, nor will they have the same genetic mutations. So why are we focusing on the unique aspects of every cell in the tumor when we can focus on the malady that is common to every cell? We must concentrate on the root causes (R1) of this terrible disease.

Cancer as a Mitochondrial Metabolic Disease

Dr Seyfried’s theory is that cancer is a Mitochondrial Metabolic DiseaseFor the cell to stay healthy, it is vitally important that the mitochondria (the energy powerhouses of the cell that make ATP aka cellular energy) stay strong and protected. But with the exposure to a myriad of environmental toxins, chemicals, medications and unhealthy eating habits, the cell’s mitochondria can be damaged, which can lead to cellular disaster.

In the early 1900’s, the great Otto Warburg surmised that when damage occurs to the mitochondria, the cell can’t make sufficient energy; therefore, adaptation occurs and it up-regulates a less effective and more primitive form of cellular energy production called glucose fermentation or aerobic glycolysis (the conversion of glucose to lactic acid in the presence of oxygen). With this primitive form of glycolysis, there is less oxygen and more lactic acid, which creates a perfect environment for cancer cells to grow. Warburg also theorized that as cells adapt to damage, “bad” genes get turned on and disease begins expressing.

Seyfried has put Warburg’s theory to the test with many modern day studies, stating with certainty that Warburg is correct: the genomic defect arises as a secondary downstream effect. He believes that cancer is a metabolic disease that uses glucose (and in certain cases glutamine) for energy. Cancer cells do not use fat for energy. Seyfried states that if glucose can be controlled via fasting and ketosis, forcing the cells to use fat for energy, cancer cells would be weakened, giving our immune system or other treatments the upper hand. In Cancer as a Metabolic Disease he states “…It is my opinion that targeting glucose and glutamine under energy restriction will be more effective long-term therapy than any of the current drugs used to treat these cancers.”

What Comes First: the Chicken or the Egg?

Normally, our cellular energy is produced via efficient respiration. But if that system fails, the cell has to gradually increase the capacity to produce ATP energy to remain alive. Thus, the process of glucose fermentation begins.

Oncogenes, which are genes having the potential to cause a normal cell to become cancerous, are highlighted as playing a significant role in the generation of certain cancers. But why are they so central? It turns out that oncogenes control fermentation. They are transcription factors that up-regulate fermentation when respiration becomes insufficient, which leads to extra cellular acidification and wounding to the microenvironment. This then causes inflammation and the progression of other damaging processes.

The bottom line is the chicken came first, or in this case, the cell damage comes before the gene. The mitochondria get damaged and a gene gets turned on for adaptation, creating the perfect environment for cancer to grow.

The Mysterious World of Tumor Cells

Dr Seyfried points out that tumor cell multiplication is a multi-faceted process. The strange thing about tumor cells is that they continue to produce lactic acid, even when oxygen levels are sufficient for respiration. That is happening because the mitochondria are deficient. So those cells behave as if they are in a hypoxic (low oxygen) environment. Despite the fact that they look like they have proper respiration, they don’t.

The acidic environment created by cancer cells is used to market the idea of alkalizing the body. It sounds logical on the surface, that if people with cancer are acidic, let’s make them alkaline. Not so simple, for the reason that the cancer is creating the acidity, and forcing alkalinity doesn’t change this fact. The acid environment is far too downstream. This is a metabolic issue, which I believe is being driven mostly by cellular toxicity.

We must also consider the role that increased glucose plays in tumor cell reproduction. It is critically important to keep glucose levels in normal range. Therefore, one would think that by stopping the cancer cells from using glucose via a medication that stops glycolysis (the use of glucose for energy in states of low oxygen), it could either kill the cells through apoptosis (cell suicide) and/or diminish existing tumors. But that is not necessarily the case. There have been a number of drugs to stop glycolysis (the breakdown of glucose) but they have been unsuccessful. As these drugs stop glycolysis in every cell of the body, this becomes a problem, as both cancer cells and normal cells use the same glycolic pathway. The only difference is that tumor cells are using glucose to a much greater extent. So by using indiscriminant inhibitors of glycolysis, you WILL kill some of the tumor cells, but you will also damage some of the functionality of normal cells.

I am always of the belief that if you go upstream and get to the cause, the body will heal. In this case, we must first stop what damages mitochondria. This is driven either by an increase in glucose driving oxidation and inflammation, or by toxins causing damage, oxidation and inflammation of the fragile mitochondria membranes.

Warburg stated years ago, “Respiratory insufficiency can arise from the cumulative effects of any number of environmental factors that alter mitochondrial function.” So if we control glucose and decrease cellular toxicity via True Cellular Detox™, what do we do with the damaged mitochondria? Seyfried thinks this is the solution as he notes, “… If all cancer arises from mitochondrial dysfunction, then replacement of damaged mitochondria with normal mitochondria should prevent cancer. In other words, mitochondria producing sufficient respiration should suppress tumor growth regardless of the numbers and types of mutations.”

He refers to his protocols as Mitochondrial Enhancement Therapy (MET), meaning the use of restricted states of eating like fasting and ketosis. These therapies not only heal damaged mitochondria, but also get rid of the bad cells driving tumor formation through two natural processes known as autolysis and autophagy. This is when the body eats bad, damaged cells during times of restriction.

Cancer, Fasting and Ketosis

For cancer management, Seyfried uses fasting and ketosis as “metabolic therapies.” He believes this approach is a promising alternative to chemotherapy and radiation, because the benefits far outweigh the toxic side effects of conventional therapies.

Read more on fasting here and more on the ketogenic diet here. During fasting, and when in a ketotic state, blood glucose is lowered to force cells to burn the body’s own fat for energy, which restricts the glucose available to tumor cells and also increase ketones, which are a powerful and efficient source of energy for proper cellular function.

Seyfried believes one of the benefits of the keto diet is this: because tumors have defective respiration in the mitochondria, tumors can’t use the ketones as their alternative fuel, so they become non-functional. In other words, they become more vulnerable to death as a result of these energetic transitions. This is an elegant way to metabolically marginalize the tumor cells, while enhancing the health and vitality of normal cells.

With the restrictive ketogenic diet, one is trying to manage cancer WITHOUT TOXICITY. And if you understand the metabolism of the body, and are able to tweak metabolic pathways in different directions, one can achieve management of these very difficult diseases without using toxic drugs.

Immunotherapy in the Right Order

Frequently Dr. Seyfried is asked, “Will ketosis and fasting cure cancer?” He would NEVER use the word “cure,” but notes one can manage cancer and slow down the degree of growth. Over time, as the patient utilizes the metabolic protocols with success, he or she can be placed on a schedule of diet variation and a series of less toxic drugs (immunotherapy) that can finish off the surviving tumor cells. The surviving cells become targets for immunotherapy drugs because we are finally dealing with a population of cells that have something in common. It is all about timing. He points out that allopathic medicine is doing a lot of things correctly … just in the wrong order.

Testing Proves Theories

Some exceptional developmental biologists performed numerous tests and studies over many years, testing the hypothesis of whether cancer is a nuclear genetic disease or a mitochondrial metabolic disease. Dr Seyfried bundled all those experiments into one group and presented them for the first time. Here is the conclusion: the nucleus of the tumor cell is NOT capable of driving the disease. It is the mitochondrion that is driving the disease. This is a revolutionary theory.

The Glory of Ketones

Although Dr. Seyfried is an expert in the keto adaptation diet, he also gives much credit to his colleague, Dr. Dominic D’Agostino researcher at the University of South Florida, who is also a global authority in keto-adaptation and a featured guest on CHTV. Keto-adaptation is a form of therapeutic ketosis, not to be confused with ketoacidosis (a pathological state experienced by some diabetic patients). What actually takes place during keto-adaptation? The blood sugar goes down and eventually glycogen reserves in the liver and muscles are used up. Then the body must mobilize fat for energy, primarily using the fat storehouse in the liver, where most of the ketones are generated.

The liver makes these water soluble by-products (little energy ketone bodies) that can be used by the brain and the heart to become energy efficient. But the glories of ketones don’t stop there. Ketone bodies also create healthy and increased mitochondria production. They produce very few reactive oxygen species (ROS), or wasteful energy, and the utilization of this cleaner fuel causes much less cellular inflammation.

During the interview with Dr. Dominic D’Agostino, we discussed another benefit of the keto diet. In new studies, some of which he has done personally, ketones have the ability to change gene expression. In other words, ketones can turn off bad genes that are involved not just in cancer but many other diseases. According to new studies, ketones can also turn on genes that help us live longer.

How Do You Know When You Are in the Keto Zone?

A question many patients ask Dr. Seyfried, “How do I know if I am in the zone of ketosis?” Dr. Seyfried published a paper earlier this year on the glucose ketone index calculator that was designed primarily for cancer patients. Any person who wants to know whether or not they are in a therapeutically ketotic state must use a meter that measures both blood glucose and ketones (The meter we suggest is the Precision Xtra, which can be purchased online).

The perfect keto zone is accessed by taking the ratio of glucose (perfect range is 55-65) divided by the ketone number (perfect range between 3-7) and the perfect ratio is 1.0 or below. The glucose will need to be converted from mg/dl to mmol/L.  This can be done on line at If you are within this range, your body is using ketones very efficiently and “eating up” undesirable cells (referred to as the autolytic state). Healthy people with no cancer can get into this zone much easier than those who are ill. Because a cancer diagnosis can produce a lot of anxiety, it can lead to elevated blood sugar levels, and elevated glucose can hinder keto-adaptation. However, if cancer patients can handle the stress of their diagnosis well enough, they are able to get into the zone of keto-adaptation much easier.

Methods for Hitting the Zone and My Personal Experience

Dr. Seyfried explains there are various ways to start using metabolic therapies to hit that perfect zone. A water-only fast for 4-7 days is ideal, but water-only fasting must be monitored closely. I have used beef stock for 4 days and hit the zone with many people, and this is a much easier fast than water only. And of course, the keto adaptation diet, which I refer to as an advanced cellular healing diet is the cornerstone, because over time, it dramatically lowers glucose while increasing health-promoting ketones. In my practice, I combine a ketogenic diet with daily intermittent fasting where the client often fasts for 16-18 hours from dinner to the next meal (a late lunch). Intermittent fasting can greatly support increased ketone production and glucose reduction, and the fact that it is done daily, and not just 4-7 days, produces results that are amazing in regards to hormone health and anti-aging.

I asked Seyfried if he felt moving in and out of the zone is still effective; for example, going into ketosis for 3-4 months then moving back into a regular Cellular Healing Diet (diet variation) or doing 4 day fasts periodically. He said even one or two fasts a year is beneficial for most people. I do believe more time in the zone and more frequent fasting is needed in some cases to regain health. I have many clients who do one fast a month, and with every fast new healing occurs.

I have witnessed, the healing power of one long fast personally with my own wife. Years ago she had some pre-cancerous cervical cells. She water fasted for 12 consecutive days (with my supervision) and returned to the doctor who diagnosed her some months later showing no more cancer cells. The doctors were in shock. To this day, we both periodically utilize 4 day fasts, mostly using whey water or stock. We also go into ketosis throughout the year for 3-4 months at a time, and move back into the Cellular Healing Diet the other months. For the last 2 years we have also utilized intermittent fasting daily with incredible results. I can honestly say that I see and feel like I have gotten 10 years younger. I believe the practice of moving in and out of these restricted states such as fasting, ketosis, and the cellular healing diet, which I refer to as diet variation, emulates our longer living ancestors, turning on our genes for a long healthy life.

Troubleshooting Weight Loss Resistance

But the ketogenic diet is not always smooth sailing, as some can experience weight loss resistance during the course of this diet. This may be as a result of consuming too much protein, fat, or calories. Note that food and drink management will be different for each person. For instance, some cancer patients can manage to drink a glass of dry red wine without spiking their glucose levels. And for some, beef stock will keep them in that perfect adaptation zone and others need only water. The perfect balance of foods and fats is tricky, and that is why you need a trained professional to monitor your progress (for more info on working with a practitioner trained in ketogenic diet therapy call my office).

The first thing I assess if someone says they are gaining weight or not losing weight is to note the amount of carbs they are ingesting. For most, less than 50 grams is effective, but some have to go down lower to lose weight or hit the target zone. The next question I ask is the amount of protein they are consuming daily. Protein can convert to sugar and this will keep people out of ketosis or the zone. Too much fat could also lead to not enough restriction, and can be adjusted by utilizing intermittent fasting daily (taking out one meal), or using 2 small meals in the day and a bigger dinner. It is important to still eat one big meal (to fullness) a day, otherwise the body will think it’s starving and shut down weight loss. Caloric restriction by itself does not work for this reason. You cannot simply push food away each meal. You will fail because the body, in attempt not to starve, will lower the set-point (metabolism) or give you cravings you cannot resist and then the diet is broken. By eating at least one meal a day to full, and restricting during the day, the body will not go into this starvation reaction and instead will learn to become a more efficient fat burner to provide the energy it needs throughout the day.

I don’t eat nearly the amount of calories as others: not because I am pushing away food, but because my cells are very efficient at utilizing fat. I am simple not as hungry. I have observed my clients becoming very proficient at fat burning at the cellular level, and they too don’t need as much food and they eat less naturally. What a relief when food cravings disappear.

Diet Variation is a Must

As noted earlier, Dr. Seyfried and I agree that it is very important to move people in and out of ketosis with a method called diet variation. Also, I have found that for patients who couldn’t get into ketosis, taking them off the keto diet for a few months and starting my Cellular Healing diet can elicit wanted changes. When previously these clients couldn’t lose weight, they were suddenly able to shed pounds once switching diets. I keep them on the Cellular Healing diet for a few months, and then shift them back to the ketogenic diet. After these diet variations, patients have a much easier time getting into the keto zone.

A perfect example of diet variation is the Hunzu people who lived very long disease free lives. Their culture was forced into dramatic dietary shifts. In the summer, they were eating mostly vegetables and fruit. In the winter, they were surviving on fatty foods. Then they had “starvation spring,” when they went weeks or months without much food. Based on the health and vitality of these cultures, we can thrive with diet variation.

Dr. Seyfried notes that shifting back and forth between different diets is exactly what you need to eliminate tumor cells. Tumor cells have a lot of mutations as a secondary consequence of defects in respiration. Tumor cells have all kinds of broken chromosomes, deletions and duplications, and because of these mutations, the tumors are much less adaptable to these dietary shifts. And with this lack of adaptation, they end up getting eliminated. So we can exploit the genetic defects in the tumor cells by forcing these dramatic shifts with diet variation.

What Fats Should I Be Eating?

Healthy fats are key to a successful ketogenic diet. But remember there are different kinds of fats. On the Atkins diet, for example, people take in any kind of fat and as much as possible. The ketogenic diet revolves around a special type of fatty acid called medium chain triglycerides, like coconut oil, MCT oil, and avocados, and doesn’t encourage the consumption of too many long chain fatty acids (fish oil, olive oil). Even though a little bit of fish oil is ok, too many people in this country are omega 3 dominant, consuming rancid fish oils. With omega 3 dominance comes the displacement of cardiolipin out of the mitochondrial membrane, causing energy leaks. So for the bulk of the keto diet, it is best to use medium chain triglycerides for fat since they play an important role in promoting optimal ketone levels.

As stated above, we must remember that eating too much fat (even healthy fats), or food period, can put you in harm’s way. For some people when too much fat or calories is consumed, blood sugar will not decrease, insulin goes up, and the next thing you know, you have very high triglycerides. If blood sugar does not drop, and ketones do not rise, something needs to be adjusted. On the ketogenic diet, I suggest my clients eat 2 tablespoons of organic, grass-fed butter and either 2 tablespoons of raw coconut oil or MCT oil per day, plus quality sea salt to balance electrolytes. It is prudent to follow the healthy fat guidelines provided by your qualified health care professional.

The Use of Exogenous Ketones

Some have asked Dr. Seyfried about the use of exogenous ketones (ketone supplements, or ketones created outside the body). Surely this would be a welcomed short cut. His colleague, Dr. A’gostino, gets good results using exogenous ketones, but we have yet to fully explore this avenue. See more on the subject of exogenous ketones here. I believe exogenous ketones will not replace what our body does naturally during a fast or ketosis, but could be very beneficial in the time that blood sugar is dropping and ketones are not yet rising. We will know more as our doctors’ use them during times of restriction, so stay tuned.

Right now, the natural ones are not easy to make. Richard Veech from the NIH has been working on this for many years. He is one of the world’s authorities in making natural kinds of ketones and his body of work explains how they influence mitochondrial function. But for now, we must mostly rely on metabolic therapies for ketone production.

What Kind of Exercise is Required?

According to Dr. Seyfried, exercise is required in combination with metabolic adaptation diets. However, moderate exercise is the key. No need to torture your body. Why is over-exercising dangerous? If you look at marathon runners, this intense exercise damages the immune system and can create inflammatory conditions that may even provoke the onset of cancer in some people. But moderate exercise enhances mitochondrial function under the right kind of dietary conditions. Short, high intensity training is the best option. I have been teaching high intensity burst training to my patients for years, check out more info on bursting here.

Protect Your Mitochondria (R3)

Dr Seyfried said, “If all cancers arise from metabolic dysfunction, then replacement of damaged mitochondria with normal mitochondria should prevent cancer. In other words, mitochondria producing sufficient respiration (energy) should suppress tumor growth regardless of the numbers and types of mutations.” The logic is that if cancer is a metabolic mitochondrial disease, and you protect your mitochondria, you don’t get cancer. Even if you inherit the Brac 1 gene mutation that damages mitochondria, for example, you can still utilize metabolic therapies to enhance wellbeing. And when you do so, the probability of developing these diseases is significantly reduced. When we put all these therapies together, fasting, daily intermittent fasting, ketosis, and diet variation, we have the tools needed to fix these metabolic problems.

My Multi-Therapeutic Approach

So many people are suffering unnecessarily. I believe that mitochondrial damage is leading not just to cancer, but to a multitude of other diseases, like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, diabetes and thyroid dysfunction, to name a few. In order to achieve health, it is very important to link the above-mentioned therapies together. I call this a Multi-Therapeutic Approach (MTA). This includes my 5R’s of True Cellular Detox and Healing™, which explains how to fix the cell, my unique True Cellular Detox™ system where we remove toxins and the interference creating mitochondrial damage, and ancient healing strategies (like fasting and ketosis) and burst training workouts. We need all the tools we can muster to fight these previously untreatable diseases. That is why the information Dr. Seyfried provides is vitally important: it addresses the very basis of what we need to do in order to enjoy vibrant cellular health.

Many Thanks to the Brilliant Dr. Seyfried

I encourage you to buy Dr. Seyfried’s book, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease. There is also a Facebook page for his book for those who want to make contributions directly to his research. The research is being used to enhance the concepts of the book, and eventually, there will be a reasonable therapy for managing cancer without the toxicity. This will empower patients and allow them to be participatory in their own treatment.

Dr. Seyfried’s goal is for cancer patients to finish metabolic therapy healthier than when they started. And this can happen when people understand more about the nature of cancer. What he offers is a strategy for long-term, non-toxic management of the disease. His work is amazing, as it proves in detail what I have been teaching for years. I am so appreciative of all the work and studies he offers for our benefit, an answer to a growing epidemic of cancer and other so-called incurable diseases. Thank you so much for sharing with us your life saving theories, Dr. Seyfried, and may all of you benefit from his remarkable body of work.

The Dangers of Glyphosate: An Interview with Dr. Stephanie Seneff

In a previous article called, “Its Not Just Gluten,” I give specifics about the dangers of a very toxic and pervasive chemical called glyphosate, which acts as the active ingredient in the popular herbicide called Roundup. Glyphosate is a highly toxic chemical that is lethal to most plants on our planet. Its toxicity is comparable to DDT, which is known to cause birth defects. Glyphosate has been associated with fertility problems, extreme disruption of the gut microbiome, detoxification enzyme destruction and increased DNA damage.

Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Dr. Stephanie Seneff, one of the globe’s foremost experts in researching how glyphosate affects the human body. Dr. Seneff is a PHD senior research scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She holds a BS degree in Biophysics, MS and EE degrees in Electrical Engineering and a PHD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. In recent years, her research has focused mainly on the relationship between nutrition, health and glyphosate exposure.

Many of us have read about the dangers of GMO (genetically modified organisms) core crops that include soy, corn, sugar beets, canola oil, cotton, tobacco and alfalfa. In past years, we learned that GMO foods are causing wide spread health problems. When nature’s balance is re-arranged, it can cause very serious consequences. It has been established that GMO foods have been linked to premature death, gastric lesions, liver and kidney damage, organ failure, allergic reactions and much more.

What happens when GMO crops are sprayed with glyphosate? The damage escalates to an unprecedented level. Once sprayed, glyphosate can’t be washed off, and it ends up being absorbed into every cell of the GMO plants. Dr. Seneff points out that because GMO plants have a bacterial gene inserted in their genome, they become resistant to glyphosate. As a result, GMO crops are able to survive extremely high levels of Roundup without dying. Because of their resistance, in the last few years, glyphosate use has increased by 800%!

But the use of glyphosate is not just restricted to GMO crops. It is now being sprayed on most every conventional crop, including wheat, grains, peanuts and legumes, right before harvest. This process is called desiccation and causes crops to shrivel, increasing yields. Eating grains or legumes that are not certified organic puts your health at risk, so please beware.

Glyphosate Linked to Cancer

Glyphosate is what Dr. Seneff calls a “monster molecule,” and affects human biology is many ways. It was first patented as a chelating agent for heavy metals to clear pipes. The second patent was for use as an anti-microbial agent. Lastly it was patented as an herbicide.

In March of this year, the WHO (World Health Organization) recognized glyphosate as a probable carcinogen 1. Researcher Dr. Nancy Swanson, PhD and former US Navy staff scientist, has found correlations between pancreatic, colon, thyroid, kidney and liver cancers and glyphosate exposure. And Monsanto labels glyphosate as safe for the human body? As is represented in this article, Monsanto’s safety claim is both false and dangerous.

Glyphosate and the Gut

How does glyphosate affect the gut and the human microbiome? Glyphosate not only pokes holes in the gut lining, but it also opens up the tight junctions of the intestines (a barrier that protects our gut from foreign invaders and keeps nutrients intact for proper digestion), thereby allowing undigested food particles to cross into the bloodstream. This opening creates the ability for antibodies to be made against all these food particles. And this can lead to both food allergies and leaky gut syndrome (read more on leaky gut here).

According to Dr. Seneff, if gluten molecules are in the presence of glyphosate, gluten digestion is blocked. Normally, the digestion of gluten involves crosslinks on different amino acids, but glyphosate stops those crosslinks from happening.

With glyphosate exposure, once the tight junctions are wide open, gluten molecules floating through will cause both allergic reactions and inflammation. In fact, in some gluten sensitive individuals, even one small bite of gluten can cause inflammation and discomfort for up to 6 weeks. Dr. Seneff believes that glyphosate exposure is catapulting gluten sensitivity into epidemic proportions. Therefore, I think it is safe to say that we if we can fix the glyphosate problem, we can massively impact the gluten problem.

Glyphosate and Friendly Gut Bacteria

How does glyphosate affect our friendly gut bacteria? When we are born, lactobacillus is the first friendly bacterium that gets established. When we are nursed, mother’s milk is feeding the lactobacillus, keeping our gut healthy.

Unfortunately, lactobacillus is especially sensitive to glyphosate exposure. It is very dependent on the mineral manganese, and glyphosate chelates (draws out) manganese. When lactobacillus can’t thrive, it makes it easy for pathogens to grow, and that is how many gut disruptions are established at a very young age.

Glyphosate Imprisions Minerals

Glyphosate binds our body’s minerals by building a cage around them. When this takes place, our cells don’t have access to the minerals because they are hidden in the glyphosate molecules. Dr. Seneff explains that glyphosate then carries minerals to vascular areas where they interact with vital fluids: the kidneys and urine, the cerebral spinal fluid and the brain (the pineal and the pituitary glands are linked to the cerebral spinal fluid), and the jaw where the salivary glands are housed. All these areas are extremely acidic, and under these conditions, as glyphosate unloads its cargo, the metal minerals become toxic. This can greatly compromise the above-mentioned areas of the body.

According to Dr. Seneff, this is one of the main reasons why excessive glyphosate exposure can cause kidney failure. In Sri Lanka and Central America, young agricultural workers who sprayed glyphosate on sugar cane were dying of kidney failure at an epic rate. Because their untimely deaths were linked to excessive glyphosate exposure, it has now been banned in those countries 2, 3.

And see more on the shocking effects of glyphosate around the world in these videos:

In regards to our vital mineral iron, currently, there is a worldwide anemia epidemic. On the other hand, there are many individuals who store too much iron. As Dr. Seneff says, “It is very difficult to find that sweet spot where iron is balanced because our bodies can’t manage iron properly.” And iron challenges are made much worse with glyphosate exposure.

We need minerals in every aspect of our body’s biochemistry. In addition, without basic mineral function, enzymes, which are an extremely important part of every reaction and function in the human body, are deactivated. So glyphosate is interrupting the very basics of our scientific make-up.

Glyphosate Endangers the Heart

Dr. Seneff also notes glyphosate’s cholesterol sulfate destruction and link to heart disease. She states that cholesterol and sulfate are absolutely essential for the performance of the heart. Cholesterol can’t float alone through the body: it needs a carrier, and sulfate fits the bill perfectly.

Here’s how it works: the liver produces cholesterol sulfate and ships it off through the bile acids to the gut. The first place it lands is in the blood, right before it enters the heart. Because the heart muscle works continually, it must derive its needed energy from sulfates. When sulfates are deficient, the heart does not have enough electricity to work properly , which can result in heart failure.

Dr. Seneff also believes that arterial plaque is the body’s way of compensating for cholesterol sulfate deficiency. When there are high small dense LDL particles, the liver can’t accept them because they have been oxidized and glycated (sugar molecules become attached to cell surface proteins) which causes widespread damage. In an attempt to capture these damaging small dense particles, macrophages in our plaque extract the cholesterol out of those particles. The cholesterol is then brought to HDL particles (known as beneficial cholesterol), where cholesterol is combined with sulfates. But again, if there is a sulfate deficiency, this natural process is interrupted and cholesterol can’t be combined with sulfate to form life-saving cholesterol sulfate.

Cholesterol is Not the Enemy

Could a cholesterol deficiency be the cause of heart disease? According to Dr. Seneff, the answer is yes. There is a new drug currently in clinic trials called PCSK9. Its goal is to greatly reduce cholesterol levels for patients who are sensitive to statin drugs. The main function of this drug is to knock out a protein (proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin 9) in the liver that increases LDL production. Unfortunately, during clinical trials, serious side effects are presenting as neurocognitive issues that include mental confusion and an inability to pay attention. Why would anyone want to risk those side effects?

This drug is given by injection only and may cost from $7,000 to $12,000 per year.
Why spend all that money on a drug that will put your body at risk by lowering cholesterol too much? After all, our body needs cholesterol to build healthy cell membranes, support brain function, and to build strong hormone receptors.

Cholesterol is NOT the problem. The real issue is oxidized cholesterol because those oxidized molecules damage the inside of arterial walls. And what causes LDL to oxidize? Glyphosate poisoning.

Dr. Seneff also points out that if total cholesterol is high, your body is intelligently notifying you of a health problem. It is being raised for a reason. Years ago, right before I got sick with heavy metal toxicity, my cholesterol was very low (under 170). If you have traditionally low cholesterol, you run the risk of neurotoxicity. Not long after I was mercury poisoned, my cholesterol numbers went through the roof, letting me know there was indeed a serious health problem.

Cholesterol and the Brain

According to Dr. Seneff, cholesterol is essential to our brain, which utilizes 25% of our total body cholesterol. We need cholesterol to transmit neuro-signals. She notes a seventeen year study that showed the lower a person’s cholesterol, the more severe their dementia symptoms. Another study with Alzheimer’s patients evidenced the same thing: low cholesterol profoundly compromises brain function.

Dr. Seneff says that glyphosate disrupts neurotransmitter pathways. Gut microbes make the precursors to neurotransmitters. Serotonin, melatonin, melanin (skin), and thyroid hormones, they all come from these same pathways. So as the gut is compromised by glyphosate exposure, neurotransmitter production is impeded.

Dr. Seneff and Dr. Nancy Swanson have been working closely over the past few years, sharing their research regarding glyphosate and its affect on a young child’s brain. Dr. Swanson collected an enormous amount of data that illustrates the use of glyphosate and the dramatic rise in autism. (see graph below). For further information, access her published articles via Sustainable Pulse.

Dr. Swanson states:

“Prevalence and incidence data show correlations between diseases of the organs and the increase in Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in the food supply, along with the increase in glyphosate-based herbicide applications. More and more studies have revealed carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting effects of Roundup at lower doses than those authorized for residues found in Genetically Modified Organisms.”

“The endocrine disrupting properties of glyphosate can lead to reproductive problems: infertility, miscarriage, birth defects, and sexual development. Fetuses, infants and children are especially susceptible because they are continually experiencing growth and hormonal changes. For optimal growth and development, it is crucial that their hormonal system is functioning properly.

“The endocrine disrupting properties also lead to neurological disorders (learning disabilities (LD), attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), autism, dementia, Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder). Those most susceptible are children and the elderly.”

Glyphosate Saps Energy and Compromises Adrenal Health

Glyphosate affects a multitude of bodily functions, but according to Dr. Seneff, it is extremely damaging to the mitochondria (located inside our cells) where our body makes ATP energy. Mitochondria must be healthy and functioning in order to fix damaged cells, and if we don’t have healthy, thriving mitochondria we experience exhaustion. In addition, the cell membrane of the mitochondria needs a good storehouse of cholesterol sulfate. But, if glyphosate has destroyed cholesterol sulfate stores, then our mitochondria will experience ion leaks (ATP is lost) and our energy flags. What’s more, glyphosate disrupts the production of DHEA sulfate, testosterone sulfate and cortisone sulfate in the adrenal glands, compromising proper hormone balance.

Glyphosate, Sugar and Weight Gain

Articles have been written about sugar trends and weight loss as far back as the 1700’s. In the US, there was a rise in weight gain from 1950 to 1975. As a nation, we were definitely getting fatter as a result of increased sugar consumption and processed foods. But there was a dramatic increase in obesity after 1975, which correlated with the introduction of glyphosate.

In past articles and podcasts I’ve talk about the relationship of weight loss resistance and accumulated toxins. But how do toxins relate to weight gain and weight loss resistance? Toxins keep the cellular membrane inflamed and blocks normal hormone receptor function. This causes inappropriate weight gain and/or weight loss resistance.

Dr. Seneff talks about the importance of the Cytochrome P450 enzymes to detoxify the liver of drugs and toxic chemicals. For instance, PCB’s found in insecticides are not water-soluble. They require these enzymes to convert them to a water-soluble substance to be excreted from the body. If these enzymes are deactivated by glyphosate, then these toxins can be stored in the body and the gut. Folks with big round bellies are more likely storing toxins in abdominal adipose (fat) tissue.

Here is a word of caution for those who are storing multiple toxins. Rapid weight loss can cause a rapid release of many toxins at once, leading to increased inflammation and damage to the body and the brain. Please follow my steps for True Cellular Detox™ that can set the stage for steady and safe weight loss.

Can We Avoid Glyphosate?

It is not possible to avoid all glyphosate exposure because it is so prevalent in our food sources. But, as Dr. Seneff advises, it is imperative that you buy certified organic foods, including spices and herbs. Although it can be more expensive, you can’t afford NOT to eat organic.

A caution to the wise: eating foods that are labeled “non GMO” or “natural” is not often enough. Dr. Seneff points out that even if you buy “non-GMO” cheerios, you can’t guarantee they will be glyphosate free. Oats are sprayed with glyphosate right before the harvest. But my advice is to eat no grains, following core principles of my Cellular Healing Diet, especially if you’re dealing with inflammation. And I have stated in past articles that non-organic grains are among the most dangerous foods on the planet. Remember all grains are being sprayed with glyphosate. So if you are eating conventional grains and legumes at restaurants, beware of the massively detrimental effects to your health.

We also have to be extremely careful about not eating any dairy products that are not grass-fed and organic, as they are coming from conventional cows fed with GMO corn feed. As you can see, it gets very tricky when you are eating out in a restaurant, so do the best you can and try to find restaurants that offer organic and grass fed options.

What Can We Do?

Glyphosate exposure is an all-pervasive problem. And yet people are going about their lives as if everything is OK. But it is obviously NOT OK. When you concentrate on these facts, it is a very concerning situation. So what can we do to protect ourselves?

You can’t do a colon cleanse or change your diet and think that will be enough. More than likely, your detox pathways have already been damaged by glyphosate. That is why you must learn my 5R’s of True Cellular Detox and Healing and practice periodic True Cellular Detox™. We must heal the cells and up-regulate the detox pathways so we can rid our body of this horrid chemical.

In addition, I suggest using CytoDetox™ drops and BIND by Systemic Formulas for safe and effective toxin removal. CytoDetox™ is a unique combo that crosses into the gut, the cell and the brain and pulls heavy metals, toxins and glyphosate out of the body.

Please Don’t Ignore the Truth

We are now in a global crisis with our food sources because they are being poisoned by glyphosate. We must take protective measures to stop further exposure, and we aggressively heal the damage already present. Please don’t get lazy and let your kids eat conventional corn chips in a Mexican restaurant. Avoid non-organic cream or half in half at Starbucks. Stay away from Japanese restaurants that serve glyphosate laden white rice or “healthy” restaurants with non-organic brown rice. Yes, this means a change in lifestyle, but do you really have a choice not to do so?

Education is power, and that is why I continue to write articles and interview brilliant scientists like Dr. Stephanie Seneff. Thank you Dr. Seneff, for your illuminating and life-saving information about the dangers of glyphosate. May this information be a blessing to you and your family. Together, let our motto be “Save the next generation.”

The Anti-Aging Lifestyle Commandments

The Anti-Aging Lifestyle Commandments

People often ask me, “What are the things you do to stay fit and looking young?” I do many things to support my health on a daily basis, but here are the top 5 strategies I personally implement and use with coaching clients to support them in reaching health goals which also decelerate the aging process. Without further ado, here are my best anti-aging secrets…


The number one key to an anti-aging lifestyle and preventing disease is controlling blood glucose. Most Americans, even people we consider healthy, have glucose spikes meaning blood sugar levels go up and down throughout the day. Now this is not just on the Standard American Diet; even people who are eating so-called healthy diets are getting glucose and insulin spikes, and this ages you at the cellular level.

In the morning, most people have a nice bowl of oatmeal with fruit or whole grain cereal or toast with jam. Even if the food is organic, we know this: eating one bowl of oatmeal or 2 pieces of whole grain toast is equivalent to drinking a 12-ounce can of soda in terms of blood sugar rise. After you finish these foods, you get a glucose spike an hour afterwards. Two hours later, glucose is still sailing up.


Even a “healthy” American diet often causes glucose spikes all day long. And those spikes drive the creation of AGEs, advanced glycation end products, which age you quickly because they damage collagen faster than should naturally occur. And that is what gives you wrinkles. Damage from AGEs also creates pain and inflammation in joints and skin and even autoimmune reactions.


Worse yet, AGEs shorten something called telomeres, an essential part of human cells that affect how cells age. They are located the end of our chromosomes. Telomeres are the perfect biological clock: upon inspection, the shorter the telomeres the closer you are to death. We can observe cellular age versus actual age just by measuring telomeres. Therefore, you may be 45, but have the cellular age of a 65 year old based on the length of your telomeres. When glucose spikes, you are shortening telomeres rapidly and you are closer to death.


So how do we control glucose? For starters, get rid of grains in your diet, or at least limit intake. Every once in a while, I have some quinoa (technically a seed) or organic wild rice, but my intake is very limited. When I was sick, I had no grains in my diet for at least five years. Note: Many people consider gluten free bread, cookies, grains and desserts “safe” foods. But know that gluten-free is not a good option when you want to control glucose levels. This is because most gluten free products contain replacement flours like tapioca flour, cornstarch, etc. that can raise glucose even more than sugar. Beware.

We can also control glucose by increasing healthy fat intake. That includes saturated fats—link to eat fat article. Contrary to popular belief, healthy fats are integral to balance blood sugar and needed to regenerate an inflamed cellular membrane. Coconut oil, full of saturated fat, is an excellent natural blood sugar regulator, as is organic cinnamon. For an energy boost, I like to take a spoonful of coconut oil, and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sea salt (for electrolytes).

I also must note that we should be eating a moderate amount of protein to avoid blood sugar spikes via a process called gluconeogenesis (read more here). Too much protein can actually age you prematurely. For example, if you are 150 pounds, going over 100 grams of protein a day may be detrimental; between 50-75 grams is a reasonable and safe amount. Genetics play a role here as far as amounts tolerated, but moderate protein intake is best for anti-aging and optimal health.


Tip number two for an anti-aging lifestyle is to practice diet variation (read the article here). Diet variation is just what it sounds like: regularly varying your diet. When we look at most primitive diets, before they started planting and growing grains, many were on a ketogenic diet (without knowing it). A ketogenic diet means that carbohydrate intake is so low that cells shift from burning glucose for energy to burning the body’s own fat stores for energy. When in ketosis the body utilizes most of its energy from dietary fat sources, so it’s crucial to consume plenty of healthy fats for success (read more on ketosis here–link to keto 1). When cells are burning glucose for energy, aka 99% of Americans, it creates many byproducts that age you prematurely and create more inflammation, the root of most modern disease (link R4). One of the things I do with very challenged and sick clients is use the ketogenic diet as a tool to shift them into a ketotic state. We drop their carbohydrate intake typically below 50 grams a day. That puts them in ketosis within 2-4 weeks and they become pure fat burners and their cells begin to self-repair.

Burning fat produces less toxic byproducts than burning sugar and, therefore, decelerates aging. An example I love to give: when a gas stove is lit, the flame has no smoke. That’s like ketosis, when ketones are burning, a kind of “energy fuel” burns clean. On the other hand, light a log in the fireplace, and you see smoke and need a chimney. That’s what happens when you burn glucose for energy. It causes dirty byproducts, just like the logs burning in your fireplace. Therefore, putting people into ketosis down-regulates inflammation and helps their cells to use cleaner fuel to function with less cellular waste. As the production of ketones increase (which are by products of fat metabolism, hence the name “ketogenic diet”), your brain and body uses them to heal its cells.


If we look to ancient tribes, we realize that they were forced into diet variation. Why? They experienced seasonal changes, changes in their environment and, of course, the availability of certain foods was dependent on rain and weather conditions. In the wintertime, they didn’t have access to fresh fruits and the vegetables, so they relied almost exclusively on meats and fats. Their winter diet was very high in healthy fats, which kept them hardy and going strong through the season. Then, when summer came, they were able to start eating more vegetables and fruits again.

A great example of diet variation is the Hunza tribe of Pakistan, known for their longevity of 120 years. During the summer, they eat tons of fresh vegetables and fruit. When winter comes, they consume apricots, sheep’s milk and cheese. Then there is a time when the Hunza’s eat nothing: a period known as “starving spring”. It is said they go a week with no food, and then have a little food, and then repeat this pattern throughout the spring months. That is indeed diet variation, and I believe a key factor to their longevity.


Here’s the key to diet variation, learned from working with many very challenged clients. After being on the ketogenic diet for a few months, we change their diets from a ketogenic diet to a healthy higher carbohydrate diet, like my Cellular Healing Diet. During this time, clients increase daily carb intake from less than 50 grams per day, to up to 100-150 grams per day. The healthy carbs come from eating more organic starchy vegetables, small amounts of organic berries, perhaps a very small amount of organic non-glutenous grains, and more organic seeds and nuts. Then, after a few months, we move them back into a lower carbohydrate diet (like the ketogenic diet). The variation seems to work magic in regards to fixing a broken metabolism. People who are unable to lose weight notice increased weight loss. Diet variation really works. Similarly, we see the shift occur in exercise too. For example, when you do the same workout in the gym, day in and day out, you stop making gains. The same goes for diet. Something magical happens in our innate survival mechanism with diet variation as the body becomes more metabolically efficient. It’s an effective anti-aging strategy that simply mimics our ancestors’ natural way of life.

Implement diet variation: Every few months or so apply the basic principles of diet variation. And again, read my diet variation article to learn how to vary your diet wisely. I believe it will help your general health tremendously and slow down the aging process.


Another incredible anti-aging lifestyle tool is intermittent fasting, which I’ve written about in numerous articles and discussed on many CHTV shows (link). Here is the idea behind intermittent fasting. We know that eating revs up your metabolism, DNA, cells and ages you prematurely. But when you intermittent fast, this kind of calorie restriction counts. Why does this make a difference? Over time, intermittent fasting makes you a very efficient fat burner, and sugar and carb cravings slowly disappear. You don’t have to push food away, because your body simply doesn’t desire excess food.

Studies also show that fasting raises human growth hormone, the so-called “fountain of youth,” and the key hormone for anti-aging and looking young and vital. When you fast all night long, and continue fasting until late morning or the afternoon, your body is burning fat and cleaning up cellular debris in the body. Periodically, I have clients do a “block fast” for four consecutive days on probiotic whey water or bone stock only (see more on fasting here—chtv show links). With some of my more challenged clients, I have them fast for 4 days straight once or twice per month to accelerate cellular healing.


I practice intermittent fasting on a daily basis for general health, and the anti-aging benefits are a nice plus. When looking at studies regarding longevity, (how long healthy people live), caloric restriction is always at the forefront. But I am not talking about pushing food away or classic caloric restriction. For example, the Tibetans and Okinawans, people who often live to be nearly 100 years old, never turn away food. They just eat until they are full, but don’t gorge themselves. At the end of the day, they don’t feel deprived because they don’t have cravings nor feel hungry.

How exactly do I practice daily intermittent fasting? After dinner, I wait 16-18 hours to eat the next meal. That means that I don’t eat breakfast (I’m simply not hungry in the morning because my body’s glucose levels are perfectly regulated). I eat a small meal (consisting of fat and protein) typically around 2 o’clock in the afternoon. For example, I may have a whey protein shake (here’s my favorite whey) or a few lettuce wraps with grass-fed meat and cheese.

Then I eat a very big dinner. This is natural, as humans we are biologically designed to be nocturnal eaters. With a bigger dinner, the meal tells your parasympathetic nervous system (which calms you down) to kick in and help you relax. The large evening meal is key to insure a deep night’s sleep, which is another key to anti-aging. If you eat a small dinner, it turns on the sympathetic nervous system, which then increases energy and stimulation, one reason why it is difficult to fall asleep. Also, with a tiny dinner, your body will think it is starving and hang on to fat stores, not a good side effect. The big meal in the evening is very important for successful intermittent fasting and an everyday step you can take towards maintaining that youthful glow.


As an an avid cyclist, I’m by no means against endurance training. Genetically, I’m built for it. However, when we look at studies on slowing down the aging process and weight loss, high intensity interval training (HIIT), or burst training as I like to call it, is far superior. High intensity burst training is the kind of exercise humans are meant to pursue, and incorporate into our ant-aging lifestyle. We were designed to chase down prey, to run and stop and then run again. High intensity interval training is about getting the heart rate high enough so it’s tough to breathe: then you rest and repeat.

Endurance and aerobic training has its benefits, but for weight loss and slowing aging, there are far greater gains with burst training. When someone does a lot of endurance training, anti-again growth hormone drops as do anabolic hormones. Conversely, when you do high intensity bursting, these hormones increase. Anabolic hormones and growth hormones are needed to lose weight, remain lean, heal the brain and stay young looking and vital.

To see my point, look at endurance athletes: they typically battle oxidative stress and premature aging. Many marathon runners look older than their age, and are often not lean but what I call “skinny fat.” They lose muscle because they’re in a catabolic state (breaking down molecules for energy). Excess endurance training is definitely not a healthy lifestyle and can make you look older than your years. My advice to endurance runners: stop the madness, stop the treadmill running for an hour, stop the lengthy aerobics classes, and do high intensity workouts.

Now if you are healthy enough to do endurance exercise, vary it. Do it in moderation while you are training for a marathon, and include burst training as well. Studies show that people who run miles and miles actually become weaker. When those folks start including high intensity training, they do much better. Resistance training, weight lifting, and yoga all put resistance on muscles, and are forms of burst training. Your heart rate goes up very high when lifting weights. There is also a form of exercise called skinning I love to do during wintertime in Utah: it’s high intensity training I perform while intermittent fasting (aka on an empty stomach) (see more about skinning here). After skinning, or any high intensity training, for the next 36 hours your body will burn its fat stores even more efficiently. Consequently, the double-whammy of fasting and burst training (tips #3 and #4) utilizes your fat to replace the glucose and raises growth hormone production. An amazing combination of strategies that work like magic for weight-loss and anti-aging.


We are exposed every day to neurotoxins from flame-retardants in drapes and carpets, to GMOs in our foods, to pollutants in the air. We walk in and out of buildings that are loaded with chemical fragrances. And then there are heavy metals in our water and our mouths. The amount of toxins we are exposed to daily is astronomical and has a major impact on cellular health and rate at which we age.

Of course, we can’t avoid all of the toxins in our modern world. This is why True Cellular Detox™ is something that we must implement into our lifestyle on a regular basis. The detox approach involves three components and three phases. The three components include: 1. Addressing the 5R’s to fix the cell; 2. Opening and supporting detox pathways (lymph, gut, kidneys and liver); 3. Using true binders to remove toxins (learn more about a revolutionary new binding agent I’m using here–link to Cyto). The three phases include: 1. Preparatory 2. Body detox 3. Brain detox. For more information on True Cellular Detox™, how it works, and the true binder I’m using to get real detox results, please read my in-depth article here. When appropriate, I may also suggest heavy metal detox. I’ve written a three part series on proper metal detox called “When Detox is Dangerous.” Please read these articles to become more familiar with this topic: Part One, Part Two and Part 3.


Although people have the best of intentions, most do not understand how to properly and safely detox the body. It’s not just about doing a colon cleanse, although that can help move toxins out. Detoxification needs to be much more far-reaching for real results. Most cleanses and detox products from the health food store remind me of the mechanical sweepers we used to see on the streets. For example, if you are driving behind a street sweeper, all you see is a big cloud of dust because the sweeper is moving that dust around. The dust goes up in the air and then resettles somewhere else. This is a helpful analogy for most detoxes: one of the reasons that most people don’t feel great after a single colon, kidney or liver cleanse is because the toxins are simply moving around the body and resettling in a new place. It is very important to understand that when you do an incomplete cleanse, you may inadvertently be creating more problems by moving toxins around but not properly removing them from your system.

When you do an inadequate detox, toxins start to accumulate in different places in the body which causes the cell membrane to become massively inflamed. And, as we know, inflammation is the cause of most every disease. When the cell membrane is inflamed, nutrients needed to feed the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell) can’t get inside and toxic waste can’t get out. And then you have a “toxic soup” inside the cell, which sets the stage for disease to arise and, of course, accelerates aging. .

What about the brain? You need those nutrients to make energy inside the brain cells. But if you have cellular inflammation in the brain, that is a big problem. Many people complain that they have no energy and say, “My brain is not working!” But in actuality your brain cells are simply inflamed.


When toxins migrate from the cell they make their way to the liver and kidneys. The liver processes the toxins and then they are dumped into the gut and intestines, and we only hope they go down the toilet. Unfortunately, many people are suffering from leaky gut—read more here, and the toxins then circulate right back into the system. From there, they cross the blood brain barrier and can cause many unwanted symptoms. Then toxins work their way back into the body where they are bound up in the bile. When you digest fat, you dump bile, and the toxins re-circulate again. This vicious cycle is called autointoxication, and is why a supplement called BIND (super activated charcoal) is so important to take during detox: it acts as a catching agent for those nasty toxins and helps to move them out of your system.


After we start the process of binding toxins, we need to concentrate on fixing the cell membrane. This is where the Core Cellular products come into play. My concept called the 5R’s of True Cellular Detox and Healing™ is about healing the cell and True Cellular Detox™ is a key approach to helping people get their lives back from toxic illness. Please read those articles, because you must understand how vital it is to remove the source (R1) that is causing the trouble in the first place, and fix the cell membrane (R2) in order to move good things in and bad things out. In addition, you have to restore cellular energy (R3), reduce inflammation (R4) and reestablish methylation (R5). The cell must be fixed and proper detox must occur to realize optimal health and vitality.


Of course, diet plays a significant role in looking young, successful detox, and generating cellular healing. I suggest following my Cellular Healing diet, in conjunction with practicing diet variation and experimenting with intermittent and block fasting, for decreasing inflammation, balancing hormones and promoting anti-aging. My diet cuts out grains, sugars, toxic fats and poor quality proteins to make you look and feel your best.

If you are eating conventional grains you are getting a massive exposure to a chemical called glyphosate found in GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Glyphosate puts holes in your gut and brain and is very dangerous. I wrote an article called, “It’s Not Just Gluten.” Please read the article and pass it on to those you care about. In it, I talk about the dangers of genetically modified foods. Please also see Cellular Healing TV episode 95 where I interviewed Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at MIT, on the dangers of GMOs to human and planetary health. It’s absolutely frightening what is happening to many of our food sources and consumer education on this issue is imperative.

Monsanto, the company behind Roundup Ready herbicide with the active ingredient glyphosate, has bamboozled the public with propaganda stating that GMOs are safe. Other countries are banning GMOs because they are loaded with glyphosate. The truth is, glyphosate is not safe in the human body. Right now, companies are using glyphosate on organic grains after they have been harvested. So we are being massively exposed. Once glyphosate gets into our cells, it starts to alter DNA. When this happens, we start expressing certain diseases as a result of these forced genetic weaknesses. When combined with vaccinations and other environmental toxins you have the perfect storm for a health disaster. And we wonder why our kids and friends are allergic to everything…

I hope that you do your own research, read my articles, watch Cellular Healing TV, and follow these tips for not just anti-aging but for reaching your peak state of health. There are many things in life we cannot control, but these 5 strategies are tools you can implement everyday to take back your health and your life. I wish for you a healthy, long life filled with well-being in mind, body and soul. This is how God intended us to exist: vital and vibrant all of our days on earth.
