Why Cellular Inflammation is a Silent Killer

Have you noticed how Americans are getting sicker and sicker at younger ages than previous generations? Children have conditions that we didn’t previously see in kids, such as cancer. According to one study, America is one of the sickest countries in the world right now. We have more degenerative diseases than other countries.

What is Causing a Growing Decline in Our Health?

In the last couple of decades, science is showing us that cellular inflammation is the cause of the growing decline in our health. Think of it this way, you have a single problem that is causing multiple organ systems to be affected by it, so solving that problem will resolve many health issues.

Reducing cellular inflammation may be the answer to the question that you’ve been asking for years. Why are people sicker and sicker at younger and younger ages?

How Inflammation Affects Cells and Causes Illnesses

Every cell in your body has two layers of fat on the outside. So in your mind’s eye, you have one large circle and another slightly smaller circle right inside of it. On the outside of every cell, we have receptors that communicate to the brain.

When we have inflammation at the cellular level, it can damage all of our hormones, leading to miscommunication in the body. Poor communication can affect every single organ.

Here is a look at the different ways cellular inflammation can affect your body:


Think about this, what if the inflamed receptor communicates with the T3, which is the “active” thyroid hormone. How much will that negatively impact your body? The T3 is what makes our thyroid work and gives us energy, controls the way our body uses proteins for skin, hair and nails. Also, it controls our mood, metabolism and our body’s thermostat.

If that receptor is burned out, it’s kind of like when you have a cell phone and you drop the call. The problem is the reception; inflammation destroys the receptor.


What if your insulin receptor gets burned out? When you eat food your glucose goes up and glucose tells insulin to open the door of the cell. When it opens, the glucose can get into the cell so that the body can create ATP energy in the mitochondria.

If the insulin receptor is burned out, the body simply can’t get the message. Insulin is not going to work. Changing your diet is NOT going to solve that problem.


What if this is your leptin receptor? Leptin is the hormone that tells your body to burn fat for fuel. If your Leptin receptor is burned out, your body might be screaming, “burn fat for fuel”, but the brain can’t get the message. So do you see how one problem like cellular inflammation can cause problems all over the body?

These are just a few of the ways that inflammation can wreak havoc on your entire body. It can be in the joints, brain, muscles, or organs

What Causes Cellular Inflammation in The Body?

By now, you’re wondering, what’s causing all of that inflammation and why is that happening more and more and more frequently now? There are three causes:

  • Sugars – this includes grains because they turn into sugar in approximately 4 seconds in the body.
  • Bad Fats – healthy fat is the number one most lacking ingredient in the standard American diet. You can change your diet and get rid of the sugars, grains and bad fats and make a big difference.
  • Toxins – there are many environmental factors that can cause your cells to react.

Environmental Toxins That Might Be Affecting You

Think of your body being like a bucket and all of the toxic exposures you’ve experienced since before birth are constantly filling that bucket up.

Here are a few toxins that you may be dealing with:


If you’ve had vaccinations, which many people have, you may have been exposed to mercury. If you’ve got any silver-colored fillings in your mouth, those are made of 50% mercury. This is why many people are opting to get old fillings removed and replaced with safer materials.


Houses that were built before the late 1980s used lead in the pipes. If you grew up in a home that old or live in one now, you have been exposed to lead. Also, older homes have been painted with paints that have lead as one of the ingredients. Even if you haven’t been directly exposed to lead, which is unlikely, your mother can pass it to you if she has lead in her body.

Artificial Flavors

What if you’re using or eating a lot of foods that have artificial flavors? You’d be surprised at the number of packaged foods on the market that have artificial flavors listed on the ingredients.

Household Cleaners

And what if there are chemicals in your house? The cleaning products in your house, like chlorine, can cause problems for your body.

Air Pollution

What if you have to live in the city, like me, and you have air pollution, so you see all of those toxins fill up your bucket and when your bucket gets full and it starts to overflow, that’s when you start to get symptoms.

Emotional Stressors

Maybe some of them have more emotional stress than others. But even as children two people who live in the same environment today had different exposures as children. So they have different toxins filling up their bucket.

So the solution to the problem is not drugs. I believe that nobody got sick because of a lack of drugs in their diet. That’s just my personal philosophy. The solution is twofold.

1. Get Rid of The Toxins That Surround You

Number one, get rid of some of those toxins that are in your bucket. That has to be done very safely to be done effectively. Toxins are poison. You can’t just go do a liver cleanse. Some detox protocols can be very dangerous. Detox has to be done safely.

2. Heal The Cells

And then the second thing is to heal the cell. Eat lots of healthy good fats, do things that reduce the inflammation at the cellular level. So two solutions to the one problem. It’s important to safely detoxify the cell and let it heal.

So there’s the answer for you to the question that I think you’ve probably been asking, why are people sicker and sicker at younger and younger ages? What is causing the problem? Cellular inflammation.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
