We're continuing our series on The 8 Pillars Of Perfect Health. Xenobiotics are "strangers to the body" and are anything that take our bodies away from homeostasis. In this episode, find out:
--How Pathogens, Viral Infections, Bacterial Infections, Fungal Infections, Parasites, Toxins, Heavy Metals (like Arsenic, Lead, and Mercury), and Allergens are all considered Xenobiotics.
--Why one person's poison can be another person's cure (such as Gluten). And how even too much Vitamin D can damage the liver and can become a Xenobiotic to the body.
--The role that the lungs, the liver (the hero that cleans our body up by removing toxins), bowels, kidneys, spleen, and our immune system play in fighting Xenobiotics.
--Why a liver detox is so important for Cancer patients to improve their survival rate. And how a malfunctioning Liver can lead to Cancer and a properly functioning liver reduces your chances of developing Cancer.
--How food allergies and any type of autoimmune disease relates to Xenobiotics causing stress on the immune system. And why Dr. Prather says autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto's Disease, Sjogren's syndrome, Graves' Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ulcerative Colitis, and Crohn's Disease are usually involved in delayed allergy reactions (such as food allergies).
--The diagnostic tests for Xenobiotics in your body including a stool kit (G.I. Effects test), blood work, Urinalysis, ALCAT food sensitivity test, and Hair Analysis.
--How there are more cells in your body that aren't "you" than the number of cells that are "you" ( and have your DNA). And how we need those "critters" to help maintain our health.
--How weight loss can occur once certain bacteria in the gut are eliminated.
--The Diathermy machine (which are large magnets) that is one of Dr. Prather's favorite methods of detoxification for his patients.
--The amazing story of the Colon Cancer patient scheduled for surgery who was treated by Dr. Prather for parasitic infection throughout the colon (which is a leading cause of Colon Cancer). When he went in for a scan prior to his surgery, the Cancer was gone!
