Lena's Health Nugget: The Ecosystem Within

What’s the Weather Forecast for your body today?

  • Wild Storms
  • Heatwave
  • Earthquake, maybe?

Or will everything be clear skies, peaceful and total calm?

Your body is a Climate Factory with the same Ecosystem as the world around you.

Do you have continual digestion problems, Acid Reflux, stomach pains, bloating and gas? Throbbing headaches and fevers, for seemingly no reason at all? Recurring colds or sinus infections?

All this, despite the pharmaceutical drugs your doctor has prescribed to relieve the symptoms?

That’s because your “ecosystem” is out of whack.

Take a moment to read Lena’s research and thoughts on all this and how you can to turn your ecosystem into Paradise, naturally, without drugs.

The Ecosystem Within YOU

© By Lena Sanchez

Bet you didn’t know you had a whole ecosystem living within you, did you?

You’ve read about the environmental ecosystem in danger from all the pollutants in this world, but not about the ecosystem within your own body!

You may not know YOU ARE AN ECOSYSTEM and your ecosystem is in as much danger as our world’s ecosystem, from all the medications, pesticides and environmental pollution ingested, slathered on and inhaled.

Your body houses this unique, balanced ecosystem, beginning with the stomach, then miles of large and small intestine in charge of distributing the nutrients to nourish your organs. Residing in this ecosystem is more than 400 species of bacteria.

Bacterium isn’t always bad! In fact, these bacterial colonies function in harmony with one another and if either is out of balance, your system is going to go awry at some point in time.

Hidden Dangers in Our Drinking Water

an image of industrial pollution pouring into a lakeIf you live anywhere near a refinery, factory, chemical plant or dump, chances are you are well aware that your water is a toxic and life-threatening substance.

But what about the rest of us, who live in the city or suburbs, far from industrial contamination? Is our drinking water clean and free of contaminants?

More than 2 million synthetic substances are known, over 25,000 are added each year, and over 30,000 are produced on a commercial scale! Only a very tiny fraction are ever tested for toxicity – and a lot of them come to us on the winds and in our water without us knowing.

Even bottled water with fancy labels and advertising, hides behind the fact that it contains highly dangerous toxic chemicals.

We are literally drinking ourselves to death!

Did you know manufacturers and drug makers in the USA legally release hundreds of millions of pounds of pharmaceuticals into rivers and streams, that are then used for our drinking water?

Consumers are big contributors to the contamination too, as millions of people flush unused drugs down the toilet.

And hospitals and long-term care facilities throw away an estimated 250 million pounds of pharmaceuticals and contaminated packaging.

Nearly 40 years ago, Congress enacted the Safe Drinking Water Act and yet today we have more contaminants in our water supply than ever!

  • In the summers, half the rivers and streams in America’s “Corn Belt” are laced with pesticides.
  • Microbes in tap water may be responsible for 1 in 3 cases of gastrointestinal illness.
  • Chlorine (also known as bleach) is the most-widely used disinfectant by water treatment facilities. As it mixes with other substances in municipal water, it produces carcinogens and has been identified as a major contributor to breast cancer.
  • Chlorine is a gas at room temperature, and when heated in the shower, the chlorine turns to chloroform, a chemical once used as an anesthesia until it was replaced by less toxic substitute.
