Great question! Thanks for asking :)
I believe that all bad things start in an unhealthy gut, like really bad things! Heart disease, cancer, depression and allergies..oh my! And the most prevalent of the bad things are the autoimmune diseases, the crazy things that a lot of doctors don't know how to diagnose because the symptoms on every person can be different! So crazy frustrating.
So this is why I am a huge promoter of preventing bad things from happening or rather being proactive with your health. Become educated, do your own research about things, whatever it takes just don't believe everything the commercials are telling you. There is a lot of money behind what they are saying which doesn't make it true but does make it in your face.
I will be talking about these big money people and what they are actually selling you in the next few weeks. Dairy is my biggest thing, and it truthfully is one of my biggest struggles. I love cheese! No joke. Love it. I have tried to give it up but always go back, it is delicious. I have tried the faux kinds and a few have been okay but it is not the same. I have cut back A LOT but it still gets in there a little. It is a toxic trigger to me, I know this but I have learned to plan for the pain.
The truth about dairy is that it is a toxic trigger for a lot of people but it may affect them differently than they think. It can cause mood swings, bloating, feeling tired and indigestion which is the most common one for me. Actually all toxic triggers do these things so you may not even know what is causing it. That is why I am such a big believer in detoxes/clean eating programs. It helps you investigate your own body in a very clear and simple process.
There are also the hormones, the antibiotics and of course the protein source in milk, casein, is not a good thing to say the very least. 4% of the 13% of milk that is not water is glue, a really powerful glue (like hold your furniture together type glue) A really informative site about dairy is NOTmilk.com. Seriously opens your eyes to the whole industry.
I am certainly not going to start a campaign to rid the world of dairy (I am the grand daughter of an ex-dairy farmer), but it is one of the biggest 'bad things are gonna happen' triggers. I really want to help people think more about what they are ingesting and how it can be effecting them and they may not even be aware of it. A little detective work through detox can open your eyes. It definitely has mine.
I will be discussing two more big offenders in the coming week, gluten and processed sugar! Stay tuned :)
If anyone has any comments or questions please get in touch with me and I will address them as soon as I can. Thanks again!
