How Body Imbalances can cause Illness and Disease

Causes of Illness & Disease Part 1

I’m a firm believer that there is always a reason for everything and if you can find the cause, you can fix it. This is especially true in the human body. If you understand the reason for an imbalance, pain, illness or disease, it can be fixed…it’s really that simple! There is nothing in your body that cannot be fixed, it has the most amazing regenerative abilities. All it needs is the right alignment and the right nutrients, and it will then restore its own imbalances!

There are some basic things that your body needs to function at its optimum:

Body Alignment

This just means that your spine and pelvis needs to be in its proper position, otherwise nerves will be pinched and the functioning of the area that those nerves nourish will deteriorate over time, causing problems with the organs and joints in the area.

Acid/Alkaline Balance

It is vital for your whole system to be alkaline for proper functioning. If you eat too many foods that cause an acidic environment in your body, it causes problems from candida, arthritis, gout, to the growth of parasites and worms in your gut. If your digestive system doesn’t function properly, this causes problems everywhere else in the body.

>Proper Flora Colony in Gut

Probiotics is a vital part of our whole digestive and immune system. They can only survive in an alkaline environment, antibiotics also kill them, and so does chlorine in drinking water and absorbed through the skin from bath water.

Elimination of Toxins

You need to eliminate toxins from the normal processes of the body, as well as those absorbed as part of your food, the water you drink, the air that you breathe (worse for smokers) and the products you rub into or spray onto your skin. Your body eliminates these through your gut, urine, breath and skin, and if all else fails, through your mucous membranes (sinus, hayfever… the common cold!).

Adequate intake of water

Your body needs an average of 8 glasses of fluids per day, not 8 glasses of pure water as is commonly mistakenly given, but at least 1 – 2 glasses of pure water for the kidneys, liver and gut to perform their functions. The rest of your fluid (water) intake can come from teas, coffee, juice and fruit and veggies. If you do any strenuous exercise, however, and sweat more fluids out than normal, you will obviously need to replace that, as well as the minerals you lost.

Proper functioning of Kidneys and Liver

If your system is overburdened with lots of chemical toxins, and you are not drinking enough clear water or exercising, your kidneys and liver will reach a point where they cannot handle the overload. They are the body’s filters and can become clogged. It is vital that the kidneys, and the liver, be given a tonic every now and then to assist them to regenerate and detoxify.

Proper Nutrients

Your body needs the proper nutrients to be able to fulfill its daily functions. These come from the food that we put into our mouths. If you eat too many refined, stripped of its nutrients types of food, your body will not be able to maintain itself. It’s like putting sugar into the gas tank of a car and expecting it not to seize up…As natural, fresh, and raw as possible, with no chemical flavourants or additives, like MSG, or growth hormones and antibiotics!

Proper Absorption of Nutrients

Even if you do eat a healthy diet now, your gut might not be able to absorb the nutrients! This could be because of the gut lining being damaged, or the lack of the right enzymes, or the lack of probiflora. This is also the cause of many autoimmune diseases, and believe it or not, easy to fix!


The actual reason you need to use your muscles, besides the aerobic advantage, is the fact that the lymphatic system needs the muscle action to pump it, so that it can drain all those toxins out of the tissues, otherwise they stay there and you plump up and get headaches!

So these are all the important things, very basic, that keep our bodies healthy and alive and kicking. I’ll be expanding on each of them in future blogs, so stay tuned!

…And get the muscles pumping and the good snacks on the go!
