Congestion: refers to sluggishness and poor flow of blood and lymphatic fluids usually involving excess waste in body tissues and under hydration that provides a stagnant breeding ground for unfriendly organisms and systemic inflammation.

Overview

Congestion is a classic symptom of a toxic ‘terrain’ and is a classic autoimmune (A/I) response where the body attacks itself. Congestion is greatly affected by the Sugar/Alcohol Cycle and the Autoimmune Attack Cycle. Click links to read about them.

Congestion generally involves dietary dependence on carbohydrates and sweets and poor dietary habits. Regulatory imbalance of the hormones, leptin, insulin, adrenaline and glucagon drives both congestion and inflammation.

Congestion and inability to fully digest food are safe assumptions.  And if you are over age 35, you are not digesting food as you once did. Undigested proteins lead to leaky-gut issues and which fuels and compounds systemic inflammation and autoimmune response.

Know, sugar and carbohydrate dependence make hormonal resistance much worse and steadily leads to diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and arthritic challenges.

Sluggish bowels and congestion go hand in hand, and by sluggish i mean moving your bowels less than three times a day.  Being ‘regular’ is meaningless for most people as the age. If you eat three meals a day, you should poop three times a day and if you do not, we need to talk. See Enema Protocol by clicking hyperlink.

Stress and emotional anxiety interfere with hormonal balance making congestion and inflammation ever more pronounced.
