Impacts of Food on Environmental Illness

Let’s talk about the impacts of food on environmental illness diseases. Minimalizing toxins acquired from surrounds is essential, and eating whole is one way to combat them.

Nutritional rebalancing is not a diet. Fat protects the body from toxins and impurities, creating unwanted weight. Dieting includes calorie-cutting and/or exercising results in fat loss, increasing toxic density. Toxic overload triggers the body’s need to produce fat and regaining weight.

Whereas cellular cleansing removes toxins from the body, creates lean muscle, and melts away excess fat. Maintaining nutritional balance keeps the body naturally thin while cleansing toxins. Your diet choices may lead to increased inflammation, reduced control of infection, increased rates of cancer, and an increased risk for allergic and autoinflammatory diseases.

Be curious. Not judgemental.

Rinsing fruits and vegetables reduces but does not eliminate pesticides. Peeling helps, but valuable nutrients often go down the drain with the skin. The best approach is to eat a varied diet, rinse all produce, and buy organic.

Maximize Nourishing Experiences

  1. Eat organically.
  2. Drink clean, purified water. Tap water contains mold and contaminants.
  3. Fresh cooked brown rice
  4. Freshly prepared low-glycemic fruits and lots of vegetables
  5. Healthy fats
  6. Protein including meats and fresh fish
  7. Some smooth-surfaced nuts

Tip: Soak nuts and rice with vitamin C for one hour. The pure ascorbic acid crystals eliminate mycotoxins. Roasting nuts kills molds but does not neutralize the mycotoxins.

Clean Eating Options

  1. Avoid any food that triggers odd behavior
  2. Drink clean water. If you live in a fluoridated area, only reverse osmosis will do
  3. Eat in-season foods. Use ART frequently to reassess what is best tolerated
  4. Fermented foods
  5. Fresh vegetables and fruits
  6. Ghee, coconut butter 
  7. Good fats (avocado, olive oil, flax, etc.)
  8. Grass-fed meats without hormones/antibiotics
  9. High ORAC foods (good antioxidants)
  10. Limited dyes and preservatives
  11. Organic, non-GMO (CRY toxin, neurotransmitter inhibitor)
  12. Seek out food (not junk) to replace gluten and casein
  13. Sugar options: agave, organic maple syrup, honey, xylitol, stevia

Electrolyte Water

Electrolytes aid in detox, ATP production, maintaining cellular hydration, and improving stamina. Use sea salt. Avoid table salt. Try the matrix electrolyte solution, which contains; phosphorus, sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

Pesticides in Our Food 

Among farmworkers, there are 10,000–20,000 pesticide poisonings every year. Pesticides have long-term and chronic health effects such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, infertility, Parkinson’s’ Disease, asthma, congenital disabilities, and neurological harms that include developmental delays and learning disabilities.

Processed foods contain a multitude of cellular toxins that can hurt your immune system, gut health, and slow your recovery from illness. Nothing beats a good old home-cooked meal – simple cooking.

GMOs Contaminate Forever

GMOs are banned in 27 countries and clearly labeled in 61 countries. European regulations subject all food products that make direct use of GMOs at any point in their production to accurate labeling, regardless of whether or not GMO content is detectable in the end product. This applies to large chain restaurants, stores, and mom and pop eateries.

America does not have any of these requirements in favor of “food freedom.” The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients.

Due to GMOs, animal studies show organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. Human studies show how genetically modified (GMO) food can leave material behind inside us, possibly causing long-term problems. Genes inserted into GMO soy, for example, can transfer into the DNA of bacteria living inside us. The toxic insecticide produced by GMO corn was found in the blood of pregnant women and their unborn fetuses.

9 Top GMO Products in the USA

  1. Alfalfa
  2. Aspartame
  3. Canola Oil
  4. Corn
  5. Cottonseed
  6. Milk
  7. Soy

  9. US papaya

Easy and Affordable? 

It’s all about making the right choices and maybe some sacrifices. Look for large co-ops and your local organic farm CSA to eat in-season produce local and organic. A huge plus! Organic pastured grass-fed and grass-finished meat and poultry are best. If there is nothing local to you, keep in mind there are many small sustainable organic farms and ranches that ship to many states.

EWG Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen Lists

EWG research has found that people who eat five fruits and vegetables a day from the “Dirty Dozen” list consume ten pesticides a day on average. Those who eat from the 15 least contaminated conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables ingest fewer than two pesticides daily.

EWG analysts have developed the Guide based on nearly 89,000 tests for pesticide residues in produce conducted between 2000 and 2008 and collected by the US Department of Agriculture and the US Food and Drug Administration.

Diets That Can Help

It’s amazing how the proper diet can make all the difference in the world! Mistake number one: not customizing your diet. Change things around until you find the glass slipper diet that fits YOU. There is no name for it. It’s real food tweaked to your body’s needs.

And we are also changing our mindset to begin to listen to our bodies; to see symptoms as a sign of communication, not something to be stamped out or simply subdued. You have got to start listening to your body.


  1. AIP
  3. Ketogenic 
  4. SCD

If you have gas, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation, your body is telling you something. Patients and physicians need to work on diets together.
