Digestion: the process by which the body breaks down food energy and converts it to usable energy [ATP] to fuel metabolism.

Indigestion: the inability to digest food and/or the symptoms people call INDIGESTION which is a misinterpretation based on COMMONLY HELD URBAN MYTH about excess stomach acid and the need for PPIs [jproton pump inhibitors] and NSAIDS.


Digestion problems are gut problems in disguise and always involve poor production of HCL [hydrochloric acid].

Undigested proteins putrefy [rot!] in the intestine and form toxic, chemical by-products that people mistakenly describe as indigestion.  Central to poor digestion is a condition called, Leaky-gut Syndrome.  GERD [gastroesophageal reflux disease is closely related to poor digestion, but NOT because of stomach acidity as commonly believed.

Food is divided into three classification: proteins, fats and carbohydrates. When food is converted to usable energy, the molecule is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

Proteins must be totally broken down into constituent amino acids in a highly acid stomach.  Proteins that do not fully digested ‘rot’ in the intestinal tract poisoning the terrain of the body.

Proteins that find their way into the blood stream, set-off autoimmune reactions because the immune system identifies such proteins as ‘foreign’ proteins that should never gain access blood stream.  Undigested proteins [even from healthy food] present the same issues as proteins from unhealthy food.

Venom from stinging insects and snake bite are examples of foreign proteins that trigger immune reactions.  Undigested food proteins in the blood stream cause the same effect. The condition always involves a compromised intestinal tract and a perturbed, mucosa.

Inflammatory bowel disease [IBD] is a catch-all acronym for multiple symptoms and disorders of the bowel.   Colon cancer is another name for the end product of poor digestion and gut/bowel disorders, combined with infestation by fungal molds and yeast.  See Mold & Fungus Protocol by clicking hyperlink.

Think about the parallels of a foreign venom injected into the body and the exact same scenario with immune system response to foreign proteins from vaccinations, and we are not even discussing body response to aluminum, mercury and formaldehyde! The body REACTS to injected antigens PERIOD! Sadly, vaccinations do NOT produce immunity.  It is a lie!

Fats do not digest in the stomach or the gut; moreover, fats require bile for emulsification and assimilation for transport via the portal vein to the liver where they are converted into energy. Bile is the product of the liver filtering waste from circulating blood.

Fats provide up to 80% of the body’s total energy needs and represent slow release, long burn energy compared to the shock from carbohydrates, especially quick release, fast burn carbs from sweets, fruit juices and sodas.

Carbohydrates digest in the gut, and if they are a large percentage of dietary intake, carbs severely stress the pancreas causing blood sugar and insulin related problems stress on the system resulting in INFLAMMATION.

When regulatory hormones leptin, insulin, adrenaline, cortisol and glucagon are out of balance, dis-ease takes its many forms, such as: diabetes, cardiovascular problems, arthritis and cancer.

Parasites are proteins and parasites are supposed to be digested in an extreme, low pH stomach environment. Food poisoning and parasitic invasion is an issue of insufficient stomach acid and not so much a sanitation issue!  Protein digestion requires a highly-acid stomach; the opposite of what people believe and are, told.

Reduction of food intake to only two meals per day can add 10-20 years to people lifespan and greatly improve health along the way. However, you cannot reduce meals to two if you are haunted by ‘cravings’.

Cravings are muted by eating more fats like butter, coconut oil (coconut is a fat, but they call it an oil).; Bile production must be supplemented with bio-active bile which is available from YAC. To lose weight, eliminate hormonal resistance to leptin and insulin and increase your fat intake.  Fat does NOT make you fat; quite the contrary.

The Autoimmune Attack Cycle™ and the Sugar/Alcohol Cycle play active roles in digestion, dietary habits and all health related issues.  Click hyperlinks to read about them.

Most [if not all people] suffer from some form of bowel disorder which includes poor digestion, especially if over age 35.  As people get into their 40s, 50s and beyond, the effects of poor digestion and intestinal compromise [bacterial dysbacteriosis] become plainly, evident and eventually get a label from doctor for a disease you don’t have and for which doctor does NOt

All so-called diseases are autoimmune symptoms disguised as diseases.  If you want help, ask John Thomas for a consultation.  There is no cost of any kind and you will learn much.
