Inflammation Reversal and Prevention
By Bentley Murdock
When it comes to pain, disease, sickness, and illnesses of nearly every kind, inflammation is one of the most pivotal underlying factors. To put it very simply, inflammation is generated in the presence of agitation, discord, friction, and/or foreign substances in the body. The following is a list of the primary contributing factors for the growth and persistence of or the absence and prevention of inflammation in the physical body.
HDL vs. LDL Cholesterol
As we discussed thoroughly in a previous edition, the primary sources of LDL cholesterol in our diets are derived from animal meats, eggs, milks, and dairy products of every kind. That being said, these items should be massively reduced in our diets for the sake of the body’s own healistic vitality. Even better still, become open-minded enough to take it a step further: Begin the transitional process of avoiding and replacing these foods entirely.
The combination of saturated fats, artificial growth hormones, antibiotics of all kinds, and natural animal hormones guarantees the initiation of internal defense mechanisms, which go to work targeting and destroying foreign proteins and connective tissues in the body. This process is a natural result of choosing to eat primarily animal products and is simply the body not recognizing that its efforts of targeting foreign proteins also happens to be destroying its own connective and protective joint proteins and tissues. By increasing the intake of HDL cholesterol, we begin the reversal of that bizarre war of self-destruction going on in our bodies. Some of the greatest foods high in HDL cholesterol are: flax meal, avocados, pecans, walnuts, almonds, nut butters, seeds, and whole grains.
Hydration & pH Balance
Our bodies consist of around 80 percent water. Ironically, around 80 percent of North America is chronically dehydrated. My estimation is that well over half of these people actually think they’re drinking more than enough water every day. The truth is that we all need to be drinking closer to the equivalent of our body weight in ounces of clean water every single day. This seems like a high number to most, yet the research has always been conclusive. Even though most of us have unrestricted access to clean drinking water at any given moment, we simply choose not to drink it, and our bodies continue to suffer the consequences of muscle and joint friction, connective tissue agitation, dehydration, and fatigue. By adding a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar to water, soup, or salad dressing every day, we have a solid guarantee that our bodies will be automatically regulating from either extremity of acidity or alkalinity right back to a pH level of around 7.2, which is right where we want it to be. With the body’s pH properly balanced, water is absorbed into the gut lining and into the blood, digestion processes are as they should be, blood viscosity is corrected, and all joint and connective tissues are strengthened, moisturized, and fortified.
Any foreign substance in the body is either inorganic material or something living that shouldn’t be within us. Of the roughly ten trillion beneficial living organisms in each of our bodies, there are literally millions of unfriendly living organisms as well. When these negatively charged cells and free radicals make their way through our bodies, their sole purpose is to destroy as many positively charged cells in their path. With so much destruction of healthy cells going on in our bodies, we begin feeling the result of that exchange. By far, the most beneficial product I’ve ever found for combating this internal and external onslaught is a harmless antibacterial/antiviral/antifungal liquid manufactured right here in Saint George called Nano Silver.

Refined and Processed/Artificials and Synthetics:
Our bodies have a lot of work and cleanup to do every day. When we choose to consume food-like substances entirely void of whole-food nutrient density, we cheat and steal from ourselves the foundational building blocks of our own internal, physical healing. As is applicable with any machinery, when foreign substances are introduced, the ease of functionality is bogged down, and the machine is unable to function as effortlessly as it once did. As we learn to be good to our bodies, it becomes our sacred responsibility to embrace more whole and plant-based foods, more natural and organic foods, and more fresh, clean, local, and living foods. When we become willing to do more of the “processing” of our food in our own kitchens, our bodies feel the difference, and we reap the direct benefits.
