Emotion (anxiety and depression): are an organism’s response to a stressor such as an environmental condition or a psychological stimulus.


Emotional responses are by-products of systemic toxicity and lack of regulatory balance of the hormones: leptin, insulin and adrenaline. Please read Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life by clicking hyperlink..

Depression is reflective of physical and psychological pressure on body, mind and spirit. The effects of stress & emotional anxiety (SEA) varies greatly from person to person.

How you ‘cope’  or fail to cope with stress and anxiety, and your sex, are determining factors of the damage the inflict upon to the small intestinal gut wall where the immune system is located.

Diet, digestion and dietary habits play a HUGE role in coping skills for stress and anxiety, For example: sweets and undigested proteins escalate irritability and behavioral problems, and more often than not, are at the very core of anger outbursts and mood swings that seem to appear out of nowhere and disappear for no apparent reason.

SEA accounts for at least 50% of damage incurred by the gut wall by age 35. No one is immune to the effects. SEA initiates and drives the Sugar/Alcohol Cycle and the Autoimmune Attack Cycle™ which haunts the general population incessantly.

Additional factors are: sweets and alcohol, drugs and NSAIDS, junk food and antibiotics, incomplete digestion of food account for the balance of damage incurred by the average person by age 35.

After age 35, the immune system goes into the ATTACK MODE and the older you are the more pronounced will be the effects of stress and emotional anxiety on health and physiology.

SEA is a deciding factors as to how fast you age and what forms of ill health and suffering you will incur. The Attack Cycle can be broken and the body can heal, but the body cannot regenerate a damaged gut wall without direct intervention by the body’s owner.

Interestingly, the more the gut wall heals, the better people cope with stress and emotional anxiety as well as people’s ability to shut-down food cravings.

I would remind the reader that it is the ‘physical’ body that drags us to the graveyard, not mind and spirit.
