When meat putrefies in the intestine it creates toxic substances, one of them being ammonia, which kills pretty much everything around it. A 50 year old person that eats a typical western diet of animal sourced protein (eggs and dairy included) will have produced about 70 kg of ammonia, the equivalent of 3500 litres of Windex. How do you think that affects your friendly microbes in the gut? Sorry, to break it to you but it has to be said and the Big Agro will hate me a little bit more for saying it, but I’m in good company.
Your micro biome consists of 10 times more cells than our own cells, so who are you really? At least you won’t have to feel alone anymore. You are like a national park of microbes that breathes and connects with everything around it. Considering that most of those small parts of you live in your gut and depend on what you eat, it’s really true that “you are what you eat.” And considering that 80% of your immune system is in your gut, you have to love every little creature living in symbiosis with you, and feed it with what makes it healthy. What is this miracle treatment? Plants! An unrefined all plant-based diet is the most important treatment. It gives us the nutrients, the fibre that our small friends live of, and the energy charge that best corresponds to our own species.
The truth is, we feed it crap and poison. The news about the micro biome and its importance to us is booming in the scientific literature. It seems to be correlated to about every modern disease in one way or the other; arthritis, cancer, hypertension, dementia, depression, autoimmune disorders, and much more. What is obvious has been obvious thousands of years: that if you help your body by living natural and healthy, it will help you get rid of toxins and in the long run, disease.

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
