Hello, it’s Dave Hompes with you again!
If you haven’t read the previous blog post, where I shared Melanie’s remarkable story of how she beat 9 symptoms in 90-days, click here:
You’re gonna want to read that blog post before “devouring” this one, especially if you’re feeling a little under the weather today.
It’s truly an inspiring read!
Despite little or no help from her conventionally trained doctors, Mel was able to skyrocket her vitality by following a simple step-by-step process.
It’s the same process we used with 237 other clients last year to help them rejuvenate their health, too.
I promised I’d share it with you, and whilst I can’t explain everything in this single blog post, there’s another post to come that will fill in the gaps.
Here we go…
Your Gut – It’s Everything
Like many people we work with, Melanie’s digestive system was really out of whack. She had digestive symptoms that millions of people are walking around with.
Sadly, many people think it’s normal to have these symptoms.
Furthermore a large number of doctors also think digestive symptoms are normal, and just label them as “irritable bowels”.
I’m setting the record straight when I say that it’s absolutely not normal at all to have these symptoms!
The problem with this level of medical ignorance is that the more out of shape your gut becomes, the less healthy you’ll be overall.
Your digestive system is connected to every other cell, tissue and organ in your body. You can’t avoid symptoms elsewhere in your body if your gut is damaged.
This is we are so keen to help our clients optimize gut function!
As you saw in Melanie’s case, working on digestion helped improve and resolve a set of seemingly unrelated symptoms with her skin, energy, focus and concentration.
When Your Gut is Damaged…
Damage to your gut, from the foods you’re eating, from parasites and from toxins, has far reaching consequences on your body.
Bad foods, bad bugs and bad toxins can cause “leaky gut”, where your stomach and intestinal lining develop little holes.
These little holes allow undigested food particles, toxins and even parasites into your blood, where they travel to your liver.
If your liver becomes overwhelmed and unable to filter your blood properly, these particles enter general circulation where they increase your body’s toxic burden.
This affects hormone function, energy production, nerve function and can cause allergies.
The result? A ton of mysterious and “unexplained” symptoms.
Next, a damaged gut won’t digest food properly, and this can lead to nutrient deficiencies. Common ones are iron and vitamin B12.
When iron or B12 are low, symptoms include low energy, weakness, listlessness, low moods, pale skin, headaches, and others.
Inflammation in your digestive system, which is caused by bad foods, bad bugs and bad toxins, can lead to inflammation elsewhere in your body.
In fact, we know with 100% certainty that gut and urinary tract problems caused by bacterial overgrowth and parasites are a really important cause of arthritis.
Fixing Your Gut – it’s the first step a healthier you
The brief discussion above is why fixing your gut can have such a profoundly positive effect on your overall wellbeing.
It’s also why Melanie experienced such dramatic health improvements in seemingly unrelated areas of her body when Jack helped her improve her digestion.
Remember, she improved her mood, cognitive function, energy and skin, whilst her menstrual cycles also returned.
Step One – Change Your Diet
You can’t fix your gut if you continue to eat foods that damage it. So I recommend you remove the following foods from your daily eating:
These are the main foods you’re better off avoiding and. Then, you’re gonna want to improve your eating HABITS:
I’ve seen astonishing health improvements in people just from this step alone.
There are many other nutrition and lifestyle tips that can be used on an individual basis, and it’s sometimes useful to run food allergy tests to see if a specific food might be causing problems for you.
I’ve seen innocuous foods such as garlic and onions, peppers, tomatoes, bananas and broccoli cause all kinds of problems for people.
Step Two – Consider Bad Bugs
As you saw in Mel’s story, a stool test revealed a strong Candida overgrowth and a bacterial Enterococcus overgrowth.
If you’re familiar with my story, you’ll know I had H. pylori, Blastocystis hominis, and a mold overgrowth called Aspergillus.
Mel and I have something in common: when we zapped the bad bugs, our symptoms improved dramatically.
These bad bugs cause all manner of problems for people, yet they’re not acknowledged by the medical system.
My new book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Parasites teaches you all about these well-kept secrets. It’s easy to read, and I think you’ll absolutely love it.
To zap the bad bugs and reclaim your health, you first need to know which ones you have.
Because the treatment programmes for H. pylori, Candida, Blastocystis, Giardia and others all differ significantly.
Not only can you waste a lot of precious time and money choosing the wrong treatment, but you can also WORSEN your symptoms in doing so.
This is why one of the cornerstones of our “testing toolkit” is a stool test that checks for bad bugs and digestive function.
We’ve run more than 2,000 of these tests over the last seven or so years, and the findings have been remarkable, especially in cases where docs have told people, “there’s nothing wrong with you”, or “go home and live with your symptoms.”
OK, so you now know what steps 1 and 2 are in the Hompes Method’s health rejuvenation plan.
I really hope this post has been helpful: to get the most out of it, go ahead implement the diet and nutrition changes I recommended.
In the next post, I’ll teach you about steps 3, 4, and 5 of the process, and how it’s almost guaranteed to help you resolve your symptoms and revitalise you.
