This Special Insight discusses the side effects of carbohydrate dependence; why people crave carbs and why you are better off without [most of] them in your diet. To learn more, read on.
Mission: I write because I see that what we are told does not match up with the truth. My mission is to deliver truth and perspective on matters of health and longevity. Truth will prevail and people deserve to know truth for their personal and family well-being.
Observation: Sick-care is collapsing and people will need guidance and valid information when self-care is their only option. Good doctors are shackled, and they are in short supply! The system is corrupt and long lines are coming. Knowledge and guidance will serve you well.

Carbohydrate Dynamics, Hormones & Obesity
People eat fruit and carbohydrates for taste, fond memories, nourishment and fiber. But fruit and carbohydrates have side effects that are not so sweet!
When young [and we have not suffered antibiotic exposure, directly or pre-birth], the body handles carbohydrates reasonably well. But once exposed to antibiotics [or long-term, heavy dependence on carbohydrates as your primary food energy source, tolerance diminishes and health challenges, emerge. The question is, why?
The body, given no choice, will use carbohydrates as its primary energy source, but fats are far superior. Fats are dense food energy and they are the basis of our regulatory hormones.
Carbohydrates, on the other hand, create hormonal imbalance because they burn, dirty. By dirty we mean, carbohydrate sugars create varnish-like deposits [glycation] that interfere with brain receptors that regulate glucose, sugar metabolism.
Obesity says there is a carbohydrate problem, but it also indicates pre-diabetes and hormone issues, as well. Interestingly, the more body fat you have, the more estrogen you make [regardless if male or female].
And, the more excess estrogen in your body, the more health problems you will have, regardless if you obese or thin. Behind obesity is a poorly understood condition called, unopposed estrogen dominance that affects both females and males, young and old alike.
Insulin and leptin resistance is the effect of faulty carbohydrate metabolism. Unbalanced hormones [sexual and regulatory] is just one side effect of mold and fungus infestation and mycotoxin dominance.
Very few people realize molds and fungus have the ability to hijack dietary proteins and convert them to glucose, raising blood sugar levels. This explains why people, who eat lots of protein and very little carbohydrate, cannot lose weight and suffer from pre-diabetes and/or diabetes. [In other words, these people bodies are under the influence and control of fungal mycotoxins.]
Elevated blood sugar usually translates, more body fat, but it also translates fatty liver, prostate problems, bladder issues, menstrual difficulties and pre-diabetes. Blood sugar levels over 90 is a pre-diabetic state usually with a, yeast connection.
Insulin resistance, pre-diabetes and fungal invasion creates systemic inflammation, arthritis, brain plaque and cardiovascular problems such as, atrial fibrillation, elevated blood pressure and and arrhythmia. Non-alcoholic fatty liver dis-ease [so-called] is confirmation of pre-diabetes and serious fungal and mycotoxin toxicity. See Mold & Fungus Protocol.
Menstrual and menopausal challenges in women, and prostate, andropause and ED problems in men have everything to do with hormone resistance, unopposed estrogen dominance and mycotoxin dominance. The connection between fungi invasion and these disorders is medically unrecognized, but people suffer all the same. They are, unaware.
Pancreas, Insulin, Leptin & Leaky-Gut
The pancreas releases the regulatory hormone, insulin to regulate blood sugar levels and maintain energy. Eating often [less than 4-6 hours between meals] burdens the pancreas and disrupts digestion. Eating too much or too often causes the pancreas to become exhausted.
Leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells. Leptin tells the brain how to respond to blood sugar levels. Pancreatic production of insulin is controlled by brain receptors that measure leptin levels. If receptors caramelize [glaze-over from blood sugar levels above 90], blood sugar balance is lost and pre-diabetes becomes the new normal on the way to official, diabetes.
Insulin resistance means the body does not recognize and/or respond to the regulatory hormones, insulin and leptin. Excess blood sugar creates systemic inflammation and fungal growth throughout the body. Once this cycle is established, fungi release their chemical warfare agents called, mycotoxin and seize control of hormones and metabolism.
Leaky-gut is a classic example of fungal takeover of the intestinal tract. It is a condition of inflammation and porosity of the intestinal wall, and it affects everyone to some degree. Bowel disorders [from polyps and cancer to constipation and colitis/diverticulitis] are CLASSIC EXAMPLES of fungal dominance of the intestinal tract. [Now you know!]
Fungi embed their roots [called hypha] in the gut wall creating leaky-gut syndrome, gluten intolerance, food allergies and all manner of bowel complaints.
Fungi need sugar, sweets, carbohydrates and alcohol to grow and spread. Hormones are jet fuel for fungi, and once they establish themselves, they create a self-perpetuating cycle of hijacking your hormones and creating systemic inflammation. [FYI: medications, birth control pills and steroidal medications compound these problems.] See Jill’s Story for a complete profile.
Back to protein. When digestion is compromised, undigested proteins putrefy in the intestinal tract causing gas and bloat and poisoning of the body’s terrain. Inability to process dietary fats for [lack of bile] is a widespread digestion problem that leads to carbohydrate dependence, cravings for sweets and an endless cycle of insulin resistance and pre-diabetes.
Pre-diabetes is degenerative and leads to loss of cognitive function and neurological disorders. Pre-diabetes has another, more accurate name: type 3 diabetes. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia are good examples of type 3 diabetes. So is inflammatory aging.
The experts do not understand much of anything about inflammatory aging. For example, people are told Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are diseases, when they are side effects of pre-diabetes and fungal takeover of hormones. Slow-motion aging is a better description of fungal dominance and inflammation of the brain.
[BTW: brain tumors are fungal colonies, not brain cancer. Fungal DNA and human DNA are almost twin and the oncologists and experts don’t have a clue what they are looking at because THEY HAVE ZERO IN-DEPTH TRAINING IN, MYCOLOGY [THE STUDY OF FUNGI.] Now you understand the dilemma confronting patients who receive false diagnosis which is actually a Missing Diagnosis.
[Contrary to medical myth, the brain functions just fine [without symptoms of hypoglycemia and brain fog] when blood sugar is in the mid-seventies. Hypoglycemia is an expression of fungi demanding carbohydrates and mycotoxin release by yeast that infect the brain.
[FYI: dietary fat, such as coconut oil, mitigates brain challenges; fats are the perfect food for the brain which is 95% FAT!]
Understanding Symptoms Of Inflammatory Aging
Pre-diabetes and inflammatory aging occur, simultaneously. They are behind glaucoma, macular degeneration and tinnitus (ringing ears). These are side effects of inflammation, mycotoxin dominance and hormone resistance in the head.
You will not hear any of these things from doctor. Instead, you will be tested based on flawed medical models and given false conclusions. Most tests and are based on faulty body physiology. For example, the Cholesterol Theory of [Heart] Disease, and the Germ Theory of Disease, mammogram, prostate biopsy, blood urine and spinal tests for whatever, neuropathy, etc. The list is endless. [They treat the test; forget about the patient!]
Know, when the experts tell you everything is fine, things are not fine! Meaning, today your problems are sub-clinical [below medical radar,] but, add time and stir and little issues take-on clinical status of a Missing Diagnosis!
Inflammation & Normalization
If you suffer from ailments, aches and pains or are aging faster than you like, your primary goal should be elimination of inflammation caused by fungus and their mycotoxins.
Inflammation is an autoimmune response! Inflammation is not cause! When doctor blames your problems on “inflammation,” you have confirmation that he does not understand fungus invasion of the body and inflammatory influence caused by, fungal mycotoxins.
Your terrain and your immune system determine how you cope [or fail to cope] with disruptive metabolic influences. For example, stress and anxiety intensify everything! Both are part of life and both are impossible to avoid! However, you can neutralize their effects by following Young Again Club Protocols. Ask John Thomas for guidance.
Low-grade inflammation haunts people for decades before doctor utters the word, diagnosis. Chronic inflammation is the stuff of cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes and arthritis; where low-grade inflammation is below radar, but long-term degenerative just the same.
Things, chronic have nothing to do with your genes and DNA and everything to do with your terrain, immune system, lifestyle and the active presence of mold and fungus in your body.
Normalization of metabolism is a process by which you assist the body to restore itself by helping it self-diagnose and correct faulty metabolism. Normalization cannot occur when mold and fungus rule and inflammation dominates your terrain.
Suggestions & Solutions
Do the Mold & Fungus Protocol if you wish to address premature aging and pre-diabetes.
Space your meals by four to six hours, eat only two or three times a day, eat plenty of fats [see Special Insights: Eat Fats To Be Healthy & Happy] and stop all snacking and eating before bed!
Supplement meals with bio-active bile and Young Again Club digestive supports for stronger metabolism and increased benefits. Eat good food and avoid junk food, over indulgence of fruit and carbohydrates and especially, alcohol and wine.
Eat a spoonful of coconut fat [oil] at the beginning of each meal to achieve satiety sooner and avoid overeating. Butter, olives, walnuts, pecans and sunflower seeds are good sources of fat and fiber. Peanuts are highly reactive proteins. Avoid them!
Coconut oil is superior to all other fats and your body can make needed hormones from it. If you cannot eat a spoonful of coconut fat at the beginning of each meal [due to taste or texture issues,] take two capsules of ReSet instead and boost your lauric acid levels in the process. Read about ReSet here.
Caloric intake should be (+ -) 65-75% fats, 20-30% protein and 10% carbs. Green veggies, such as kale, chard and spinach are always excellent choices. Avocados are great! Yams and sweet potatoes in moderation are fine if accompanied with enough, fat.
