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

Indigestion: undigested proteins putrefy [rot!] in the intestine and form toxic, chemical by-products that people mistakenly describe as, gas and bloat and indigestion.  Central to poor digestion is a condition called, Leaky-gut Syndrome also known as, GERD [gastroesophageal reflux disease.]


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 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 from healthy food present the same issues as proteins from unhealthy food.

Venom from stinging insects and snake bite are foreign proteins that trigger imumune reactions.  Undigested food proteins in the blood stream cause the same effect. The condition is called, leaky gut.  See Gout & Heart Disease in the Archive Link, above, for more information.

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 guick 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 go out of balance, dis-ease takes its many forms, such as: diabetes, cardiovascular problems, arthritis and cancer and there are thousands of other maladies.

Know that ALL degenerative health problems are the side effects of hormonal resistance. Please read, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life here.

Sugar and fructose, are short chain, simple sugars alter the microbiome in favor of opportunistic microbes and pathogenic organisms like Candida albicans, a yeast that takes over the body terrain, particularly when excess waste exists in the tissues and joints.

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.
