Health Begins in the "Gut – the Invisible Organ" – the Missing Piece in Health and Longevity"

"You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. You have a name, a history, a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle." ~ Julian Seifte

There is just too much illness and disease in our world and our current medical model is just not cutting it. In fact, it is failing miserably with chronic disease.

Let me introduce you to the hottest new topic in medicine today – the “Gut Microbiome” …the complex colonies of microbial life within us. Think of it as a new organ just discovered in your body – one that “interconnects” with all other organs. It regulates immunity, our overall health and mental state – and the best part is we are now learning to understand and work with it!

Autoimmune, Obesity, Diabetes, IBS, Autism, Parkinson’s, Fatigue… the list goes on. For them, hope arrived with fixing the Microbiome. It is our very own internal-ecosystem of beneficial bacteria, fungi and viruses… all working together to fight disease and keep us healthy.

Because health is everything… this information can be one of the most enlightening experiences of your life. It can be “the Game Changer” as you will be briefly introduced to a new model which will ensure that your senior years are full of joy, energy, mental clarity, peace, equanimity and comfort especially in the last few months of life.

There are hundreds and trillions of microbes that are within our gut microbiome and that broad array includes some friendly bacteria which helps us function well. We commonly talk about Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria but there are other bacteria that are unfriendly where it can be quite harmful if they get out of control. People hear about Clostridium Difficile as a potential microbe that could harm us or E.coli from food borne outbreaks in fruits and vegetables and also meat that people can get quite sick, if not die, if they have too much E.coli. So these are things that can actually be within our bodies or our gut microbiome and these we call pathogens are the microbes that can actually hurt us. Most of the times we have them in very low quantities and are outnumbered by the friendly ones and they are kept in check, in good balance.

"Food & Hydration Version 1.0" is about SURVIVAL. If you eat enough calories to fill your belly and drink any beverage to take care of your thirst mechanism – then that is great and it has been the reality for most of human history.

In this modern era, we are dominated by "Food & Hydration Version 2.0" where the goal is COMMERCE. This system unfortunately is morally bankrupt as it has delivered a food and beverage system mostly devoid of nutrients but packed with junk, toxins and sugar.

We now need "Food & Hydration Version 3.0," where the central organizing principle is HEALTH; Health for our BODIES and Health for our PLANET. There are plenty of healthy profits to be made in this version as well.

Drinking Ionized, Structured, Alkalized Water with High Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) may be the simplest and least expensive way to regain health and enjoy life with energy, mental clarity, peace, equanimity and comfort.

Studies conclude that certain bacteria, the anaerobes, thrive best in negative ORP (oxidation reduction potential) and this is exactly what is provided by consistent use of high alkaline drinking water. This ORP represents the antioxidant value of high alkaline water. It allows for the growth of protective microflora, especially the lactic acid bacteria such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria. These bacteria guard against overgrowth of gram negative, toxin-producing aerobes.

These toxin-producing aerobes are also important to health, but they should not be overgrown in the small intestine as this leads to mal- absorption syndrome and is associated with metabolic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer and neurodegenerative disease.

Studies shows how pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli thrive in an aerobic environment fueling their aerobic respiration. So, by creating an environment with a high negative-value ORP drinking water which is high alkaline water, we are helping our protective microbes to guard the intestinal fort.
