Alive with Gabriel December 7

This session I took less notes than usual, but here you go.

Subject: Intestinal Toxemia

  • Too much protein in ones diet can contribute to intestinal toxemia – it creates toxins from the bacteria growing on partially and even fully digested proteins
  • Nearly everyone has bowel toxicity, which can be mostly or all cleared by 7 days of green juice fasting
  • Diet is the most important thing to address intestinal toxemia. Enemas and colonics are great but more is needed.
  • Bowel toxicity can be greatly attributed to mental imbalances
  • Excess protein is 75 grams and more. Fast oxidizers generally do fine with about 4o grams per day, slow oxidizers, 20 grams
  • Constipation greatly contributes to bowel toxicity.
  • Triphala is the best, safest thing for improving bowel function
  • Building up healthy probiotics helps bowel toxicity – fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kim chee, and pickled foods (NOT pasteurized). They increase the acid for digestion.
  • Digestive enzymes are also of great help – such as HCl supplementation. Without enough HCl, one doesn’t digest protein as well, doesn’t digest B12 as well, and doesn’t absorb minerals as well.
  • Exercise, yoga, and drinking lots of water also are huge in healing bowel toxemia. Gabriel recommends drinking the amount of water that makes your body need to urinate about every 1-2 hours

All your points essentially make sense – but one point caught my eye that didn’t sound quite right- is it really that bowel toxicity can be attributed to mental imbalances, or vice-versa; that mental imbalances can be attributed to bowel toxicity?

That’s actually a very good question! You might ask that on one of the next ‘Alive with Gabriel’s!

yes i think it's more likely that mental imbalances are due to internal toxicity; in fact that point has been widely made in the alternative health literature. just to think of psychologists & psychiatrists prescribing a cleanse or a 75% or higher raw diet to mental health patients… something to pray for one day happening in this country.

these are great points, courtney – thank you!
