When healing and trying to reverse the effects of an autoimmune disease you must go through a process of elimination. Sure there are certain elements that we can’t control like Chemtrails being sprayed into the air, but that shouldn’t stop us from controlling the many things that we can control.
The first process of elimination must begin with our food. We have more than enough evidence to prove that the food industries and other conglomerates are working hard to make as many sick people on this Earth as possible. These individuals are in laboratories chemically producing foods that are lethal and addictive. The first manner to tell this is by reading the labels. If you see a particular ingredient across the board on food labels then you know the fix is in. Glucose, sucrose, and high fructose corn syrup are in everything. Though these are different names, they are in reference to the same devil: sugar.
For a long time sugar was my weakness. I could literally eat a family pack of double stuff Oreo cookies in one night and not even blink. On the weekends, I would go on hardcore sugar binges. I truly feel this is one of the main culprits that led to the severe flare up for my Chron’s Disease. Lets look at how sugar affects your brain, mood, and body.
There is a process that begins as a baby called “magnetizing”. Notice how nurses will give a newborn droplets of sugar water to soothe them when they are doing test and blood work. A baby’s taste buds are already programmed for the mild sweetness of breast milk. Once sucrose (table sugar) is introduced to a baby’s taste buds a chemical event takes place. A nerve impulse goes to the base of the brain, and opiate chemicals that are the cousin’s of heroin and morphine are released into the baby’s brain. This triggers the release of dopamine which is the hormone released when everything feels good. So this process is basically saying that sugar has the same affect on the brain as narcotics and you wonder why we are so hooked.
So how does sugar impact our health? Sugar is probably the single most destructive product that we consume outside of pork. It’s one of the chief causes of autoimmune diseases. Sugar inflames the digest tract causing leaky gut syndrome. In leaky gut syndrome, food particles and other foreign invaders pass through the now highly permeable lining of the gut. Antibodies go out to attack these foreign invaders, become confused, and begin to attack the body’s own tissue.
Inflammation is a key component in our health. Sugar induced inflammation can lead to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, allergy, arthritis, obesity, thyroid issues, fatty liver disease, and many other conditions. Consumption of refined carbohydrates such as white bread, white potatoes, and white flour damage the body just the same as high fructose corn syrup. Sugar is also linked to higher bad LDL cholesterol levels.
Sugar is horrible regardless of if you have an autoimmune disease or not. I know that sugar taste really good, but we must remember that the way a healthy body feels is so much greater than what food tastes. I am a firm believer that one of the major reasons my Chron’s is better now is because I dropped the sugary food. Regardless of if you’re dealing with love handles or heart disease, drop the sugar.
