What if it’s NOT the food you are sensitive to?

Cellular inflammation is a complex process that occurs in response to various triggers such as infection, injury, or chronic disease. It involves a cascade of events that mobilize the immune system to fight off the threat and repair damaged tissues. While inflammation is an essential response for our survival, chronic inflammation can lead to serious health problems such as insulin resistance, food sensitivities, and autoimmune disorders.

Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body’s cells become less responsive to insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. It occurs when there is chronic inflammation in the body, particularly in adipose tissue (fat cells). Inflammation disrupts the normal signaling pathways that allow insulin to enter the cells and promote glucose uptake, leading to high blood sugar levels and eventually type 2 diabetes.

Food sensitivities, leaky gut, and digestive lining dysregulation are also associated with cellular inflammation. Leaky gut refers to a condition in which the intestinal lining becomes more permeable, allowing undigested food particles, toxins, and bacteria to leak into the bloodstream. This triggers an immune response, causing inflammation and contributing to a range of health issues.

Undigested proteins, such as gluten and casein, can cause an inflammatory reaction in the body when they leak through the gut lining. In some individuals, the immune system sees these proteins as foreign invaders and launches an attack, leading to chronic inflammation and various health problems. 

There is a catch 22 here!  The question becomes:  Are you sensitive to foods and that creates inflammation in the body?  OR Do you have high inflammation with a leaky gut and your body is having an inflammatory response to certain foods?

To reduce cellular inflammation and improve insulin sensitivity, it’s essential to address the root causes of inflammation, such as poor diet, stress, lack of exercise, and environmental toxins.

Let’s start with your daily food intake.  Keeping in mind that anyone can react to anything at any time, so you will want to watch how your own system reacts!!  A diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods, such as fruits, vegetables, grass fed beef, lean proteins can help reduce inflammation and improve insulin sensitivity. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish, chia seeds, and walnuts have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.

But often this is not enough, especially if you have been dealing with these issues for years.  Thankfully, we have the research and protocols from Dr Christina Rahm, Phd, EdD, PsyD, MS who just happens to be the scientific formulator for The Root Brands.            Dr Rahm has created the protocol called The Trinity trio which consists of Clean Slate, Restore and Zero In.  This trio is extremely effective in removing toxins from the body (known to cause inflammation), restore the gut microbiome, support the immune system, lower inflammation and support hormonal balancing and neurotransmitter production.  This protocol can begin to protect and support the body and allow the body to begin the natural healing process. An additional layer of gut protection comes from Give Me Back My Youth Collagen PLUS Colostrum. This is the ONLY collagen that also has colostrum, has not fillers and is extremely clean and effective for the gut lining. 

By understanding the relationship between cellular inflammation, insulin resistance and food sensitivities, we can take steps to reduce inflammation and improve our overall health. A balanced diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods, regular exercise, and stress reduction techniques coupled with the highest quality supplements are all essential components of a healthy lifestyle that can reduce cellular inflammation and promote optimal health.
