The latest estimate of let's look at research, thinkers, traditions, and the evidence around us, which seems to show that all of our life, and our whole environment,  are so dependent upon bacteria that our design requires that we take care of these bacteria in the human body. Some speculate that we may be more bacteria than human because we have more bacteria than cells.  We have bacteria everywhere in our body, in our mouth saliva. On our teeth in our small intestines, but the colon alone has two times the bacteria of any other organ. I remember the leaders in healing with natural methods from the seventies and eighties saying that all disease starts in the colon.And I know this has been confirmed by things happening today, where we realize that the beneficial bacteria in our gut. Well, I think it's Dr. Perlmutter who says that we used to think it was our second brain. Now we're starting to think it's our first brain. But Perlmutter also quotes that he can trace Parkinson's disease to too many antibiotics over the course of a life. He quotes a study from Finland in the journal of the international Parkinson and movement disorders society.They looked at 54,000 people and found 40,000 people without Parkinson's disease. And compared them to the 13,900 with Parkinson's and found it very likely that antibiotics are a contributor. Total tetracycline exposure, 10 to 15 years before getting Parkinson's. Was shown to be a factor. Sulfonamides and trimethoprim and antifungal medications, one to five years earlier, were also shown to make one more likely to have Parkinson's than those who didn't have it.The scientist showed a 95% confidence interval that killing the bacteria with antibiotics could really lead to disease. Could killing off our bacteria, be tantamount to killing ourselves? Have you heard of MRSA? It's a deadly flesh-eating bacteria that is said to be around because we've used antibiotics too much over the years in our animal feed, pesticides and drugs. Beneficial bacteria is not a new idea and several great scientists have come to the same conclusion. Many years ago, during the days of Louis Pasteur, there was a man named Antoine Bechamp whose lifelong research confirmed that we are surrounded by a sea of germs or bacteria. That could keep us healthy.He considered that these bacteria were part of the host. They were part of what made up the host. So much so that he coined the expression that I use for the first pillar, host health or health of the host. Bechamp found that if the bacteria was healthy, the host was healthy. If a virus caused sickness and was the only factor then everyone would catch a virus that's going around. Yet we're seeing that that's not the case. As we saw with the recent virus that went around, some got very sick. Some it hardly bothered. Right now, as it seems many are getting a little sick. The virus seems to be going through the normal process of getting easier to catch and that the same time, less dangerous bef

Over the last couple of years, I'm a little embarrassed that the first episode is finally coming out after all this time. But I am so excited. That it's being published on 02/ 0 2 /2 2, which is the 20 year anniversary of my wonderful little sister and her husband. And she is one of my sisters. I love them both dearly. I just wanted to say that  if you like clean, crafted wine or would like to try wine with a little less sugar or even a lot less sugar and a lot less chemicals. This is definitely the place you want to go. It's Beyond Organic Wines ( I'm just so excited to be getting started and that you're here with me. May God bless you and this give you the health of your life.  This podcast has the premise that you have been given an amazing design from a cut that heals automatically; to a new mama whose body makes perfect milk for her baby without knowing the recipe; to our fabulous immune system that makes antibodies against the bad guys. Is it possible that studying our design could bring us a higher level of health? Is it possible that once understood this can help you live your healthiest life? Our goal is to  help you live a life worthy of the calling you have received. And that requires energy. We know we need to eat right and exercise, but to be honest,  the messages we grow up with program us for a different outcome. Today, we're going to take a bird's eye view of what the health by design podcast is going to be about. I actually have an overview for you that you can download in the show notes in this podcast, there are a few foundational pillars that we will go into in depth, and they're shown on this handout. In the first 10 episodes or so of the health by design podcast, we are going to explain these foundational pillars. So I want you to picture a Roman Portico with three huge pillars, part of the foundation to real health, overarching those three pillars, overarching everything is spiritual health, beneficial bacteria and sunlight. The base of everything is exercise that brings nutrients in, toxins out ,gives you bone strength; space between your discs. We're going to go into that in detail as well. But each of the individual pillars has an important group of topics. Host health is one; environment is another, and then health hacks or the health toolbox that give you the tools to repair things that we especially need today. Each episode is going to give you something valuable that you can take out and actually go and use today. You'll understand what it's for. This reminds me of an IG post I saw this morning saying she graduated without learning so many skills she needs as a mom. This podcast is designed to help moms, help their families be healthier and not become a statistic. Does it sound outrageous to think that we could become a statistic? Think about this. The reality is that 635,000 people will die this year of cancer. Research shows that nine out of 10 of these causes for that are preventable. The things that cause cancer, yes, we can avoid - if we know about them and to be fully honest, think about that number 635,000 people, nine of the 10 things are in our control says research, but honestly, new research shows that eve
