Highlights from today's episode include:
Dr. John Lewis
So, when you when you give the body these concentrated polysaccharides that are very, very uncommon, if not completely out of the modern diet. You're essentially giving the cells the things that they need to
Dr. John E. Lewis
So, it's kind of like if you have a car, I use this very poor analogy, because I can't think of a better one. But if your car has water in the gas tank, and it's kind of sputtering along, it still runs, but it's sputtering and doesn't really drive that well. You get that water cleared out, and then you give it high test 93 grade gasoline. And now boom, suddenly, your car is running like its brand new again. That's exactly what giving these polysaccharides does to ourselves.
Dr. John E. Lewis
as we know as immunology has progressed over the last several decades, we know that the immune system interacts with all of our other major organ systems to really kind of survey what's going on and modulate and regulate inflammation and all these cytokines and growth factors. And so, if our immune system is crapping out on us, then that just involves every other major organ system. And then what happens? Your overall health is compromised.
