Exposing the Secret Killer
With all the benefits of our advanced medical system, we are failing horribly short in the area of true prevention by failing to recognize the basic causes of disease. Our cells, the very building block of every organ of our bodies, are being starved of essential nutrition and poisoned by the accumulation of metabolic waste. In addition, a high degree of stress contributes to cellular breakdown which becomes the core of almost every disease, by whatever diagnostic label we use.
Current research from university medical centers is clarifying the role of inflammation as an important cause of chronic disease. Inflammation is usually associated with physical injury like a sprained ankle where the damaged area becomes red, warm, swollen, and painful. This response is a short-term “inflammatory” process which represents the effort of the body to heal the damage and reduce the chance for further injury. But chronic, long-term inflammation is becoming accepted as the underlying cause of cardiovascular disease, obesity and Type 2 diabetes among others.
Metabolic Syndrome or Insulin Resistance Syndrome is a pre-diabetic condition caused by a progressive cellular resistance to insulin, rise in blood sugar and the resulting toxic effects of excessive glucose which damages the cells leading to an inflammatory response.
This chronic cellular inflammation is driven by the Metabolic Syndrome, toxicity, stress and other factors. This “inflammation response” to cellular injury is now being considered the root cause of between 100 and 150 chronic degenerative diseases, including obesity, cancer and Alzheimer’s.
The good news is that this condition is preventable and often reversible, once it is understood. We can quench it before we are confronted with catastrophic disease. An anti-inflammatory diet, targeted nutritional supplements, and stress relief are some of the components of a comprehensive approach to ‘quenching the fire within’ and truly preventing disease states.

There’s a natural supplement you hear us talking about a lot here at Feel Good Buzz because it has been independently studied and proven to do some pretty incredible things for the body! It’s effectiveness is actually clinically proven and patented, as a natural anti-inflammatory as well! (Our arthritis clients are usually the first to notice improved health when they take this supplement.)
This patent was granted to the makers of Protandim, LifeVantage, in September of 2009. (The patent states that Protandim lowers the amount of C-reactive protein in the body. C-reactive protein is widely considered by doctors and researchers as an indicator of the amount of inflammation present in the body. Elevated base levels of C-reactive protein are considered risk factors for diabetes (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), and cardiovascular (heart) disease.)Share
