Inflammation: redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, heat, and disturbed function of tissues or organs of the body reflecting terrain issues hormonal imbalance, trauma and/or injurious agents.  [Text book definition.]

Know that the primary driver of inflammation in the body is mold and fungus generated mycotoxins.  To learn more on this critical subject, see Special Insights, The Missing Diagnosis.


Inflammation is always involved in any pathological condition, syndrome or disorder, and it is not an overstatement to assert that fungal infestation is at the very CORE of all inflammatory issues.

Bacteria and viruses appear after fungi have stressed body organs and tissues, not the other way around.

Inflammation can be divided into two categories for better understanding.  Low-grade inflammation and clinical inflammation.

Low-grade inflammation is a common state of existence for 99% of the population; meaning, people’s inflammation is below radar. Clinical inflammation comes with clinical dis-ease which cannot be ignored.  Clinical means it can be diagnosed.

Major injuries and traumas, surgery, acute pain and dis-ease are the territory of clinical inflammation. However, long before the onset of clinical disease and clinical inflammation, low-grade inflammation driven by mycotoxin is present and the forerunner of trouble in the making.

It is the insidious, almost occult, aspect of low-grade inflammation that sets the stage for future medical challenges, challenges that would never take form or develop had the underlying factors driving low-grade inflammation been addressed or avoided.

For example, deterioration of a joint, as in formation of scar tissue or arthritis, sets the stage for injuries that are years in the coming, such as: worn out cartilage or or torn tendon/ligaments.  After trauma or event, low-grade is elevated to clinical status.

Low-grade inflammation is the STATE of the human condition and is at the very core of aging and disease. And when extreme suffering associated with a morbid condition, such as cancer, inflammatory responses are ALWAYS autoimmune in nature.

Know, you cannot have any type of autoimmune condition, disorder or syndrome without participation by mycotoxin produced by systemic invasion of the body by fungi.

Autoimmune responses are progressive in nature; the ongoing product of a compromised gut wall, poor diet, fungal infestation, incomplete digestion, sluggish bowels, dysfunctional liver and the effects of the Sugar/Alcohol Cycle and the Autoimmune Attack Cycle. (Click hyperlinks to read about each.)

Furthermore, imbalance between the regulatory hormones insulin, leptin, adrenaline and cortisol plays a MAJOR role in the presence of low-grade inflammation in the body. Please read Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life here.

Miscellaneous Observations

Sugar and sweets (including fruit) are the MOST inflammatory food you can put into your body, and if you consume these, you will perpetuate low-grade inflammation throughout your body.

Inflammation is forever a TERRAIN ISSUE and if conditions within the body’s terrain are ignored, ongoing low-grade inflammation always leads to serious states of poor health.

Please read about and study the Germ Theory of Disease so you will better understand the nature of inflammation as it relates to illness, suffering and premature death.

The medical model does not recognize inflammatory conditions such as chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia and therefore, ignores them as if they do not exist. The reason is because these ailments are sub-clinical  i.e. they are NOT clinical in nature.  Sub-clinical means whatever is going on, the doctor is either unable or unwilling to apply a label and therefore, it does not exist. It is below radar.

Alternative medicine is not immune to analysis by endless tests that force compliance with the standard of care imposed upon it by orthodox medicine and the pharmaceutical cartel.

Alternative practitioners are ALLOWED to work the margins of the system, but are required by protocol and their license to refer to physicians or specialists the MOMENT they suspect or confirm the patient’s condition has taken on a CLINICAL status i.e. disease!

With notable exceptions, both the mainstream and alternative communities generally fail to recognize people’s complaints in the context of the symptoms presented.  The reason is simple enough: most complaints are sub-clinical.

Certainly, autoimmune is not understood in the context of the Autoimmune Attack Cycle™. Both communities (conventional and alternative) labor under terrible misconceptions and defective models.

Like it or not, patients are forced to seek understanding and guidance on their own.
