Glyphosate and Leaky Gut (Intestinal Permeability)

Today everyone is frantic about being "gluten-free" and corporations have jumped on the wagon and started to advertise "gluten-free" everything. And people have been "gluten-free" for months even years. Has the leaky gut healed yet? is your digestive system working as it is supposed to? Instead of Gluten Free we should demand Glyphosate Free! Gluten Free is just a magicians trick, the more you see this the more you believe that gluten is the problem. But the real problem is Genetically Modified Grains which are ‘engineered’ to tolerate glyphosates and consequently levels of gluten unnaturally increased. That is the real evil.

Recent scientific studies performed by Dr. Zach Bush, MD and many others, have proven the effect of glyphosates on intestinal permeability, cancer and the human microbiome (your friendly bacteria).

Perhaps we should ask ourselves, people have been enjoying bread and all kind of baked goods for thousands of years! why didn't all our ancestors and even our own grandparents experience this increasingly alarming rate of people dealing with digestive diseases?

Chelating Glyphosates from my body and going completely GRAIN FREE!! (Including all pseudograins) Has been the foundation which I built upon my entire healing journey to the point that I have not had a flare up in over 3 years… When it used to be a weekly occurrence.

The Role of An Herbalist

Herbal Medicine is the oldest and most studied form of medicine known to man. I believe that this path is more of a calling rather than it is a decision one takes in their life. In most cases, it was fate that lead us down this path, for me it was a 3.5 year long journey to heal an 'incurable' auto-immune dis-ease in my gut (IBD), that lead me eventually to study herbalism and herbal medicine professionally to combine real actual experience and professional education of human physiology and how herbs when used in accordance with traditional wisdom and knowledge of a learned herbalist, causes little to no side effects, and work with the body to promote and restore normal physiological functions. 

However, pathologies that existed 50 years ago are not the same today. Pathogens have evolved and the level of toxins in the environment has increased. Therefore, it is only fitting that we as herbalists and natural health practitioners to evolve as well and dig deeper. 

My approach is to alternate periods of truly effective yet gentle detoxification using natural organic & wild-crafted herbs and remedies, with periods of nourishment with minerals / vitamins from nutrient dense herbs & botanicals. I believe that ultimately, the human body has the innate vital intelligence that knows how to restore normal physiological balance in the body. All we do is to use natural and herbal remedies to assist it in that process by cleansing and nourishing the body at a cellular level.
Statement of Understanding:
The human body has the innate power to heal itself. Without this power to self-heal, even the most advanced medications and surgical procedures would ultimately fail. The role of the herbalist in this healing process is to consider the client as a whole person and to consult with the client concerning changes in lifestyle, diet, and supplementation of herbs and/or vitamins to foster an increased state of balance and health, thus maximizing the body's self-healing capabilities.
