Did you make that New Year’s resolution to lose weight? Are you still following that New Year’s resolution? Frustrated by not being able to lose weight? Have you tried all those MLM products that promised you fewer pounds on the scale but took more money out of your pocket?
Maybe it’s not your fault. Every year, men and women find themselves in a constant battle against weight gain. But what is the secret to getting rid of unwanted fat? Is it the fat? Or is it something else?
In this article, I will discuss the weight loss issue by addressing toxicity in the gut, particularly mucoid plaque.
Let’s be honest. The weight loss industry is big business for health food stores, network marketing nutrition companies, weight loss centers like Jenny Craig, and private gyms.
But what are you trying to lose? The fat? Or the plate?
It’s a fact of life that eating less and exercising more will promote weight loss. Is there more to it than the fat itself? There are! It’s called mucoid plaque.
Dr. Richard Anderson, a naturopath, coined the term “mucoid plaque” to refer to the layers upon layers of a mucous-like substance along with the presence of decaying food lining the interior surface of the gastrointestinal tract.
It is the degradation of food in our intestine that contributes to the presence of intraintestinal parasites, the slowing down of peristalsis and the decrease in the internal pH of the body. Most of this food spoilage is due to the ingestion of highly processed foods such as table sugar, table salt, fried foods, and foods that are canned, pickled, frozen, cooked, or chemically altered in ways that our cells cannot absorb the nutrients inside them. original natural form.
Mucoid plaque continually grows every time we eat these types of foods. It also contributes to the pounds we’re so desperate to lose on the bathroom scale. Many times, these rotten foods are not eliminated through the “back door” but instead stick to the mucous lining and lodge there long-term. It is this part of your stool that smells the worst when it IS passed out of the intestinal tract and into the toilet.
It is not uncommon for people who carry this mucoid substance in their intestines to have health problems including: obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, leaky gut syndrome, headaches, nausea, lethargy, diarrhea, osteoarthritis, etc.
This toxic substance is actually a poison to our bodies because if the mucoid plaque is not removed, the toxicities of this substance are reabsorbed into our bloodstream giving rise to the symptoms that were discussed.
Have you ever observed people whose body structure includes a very obese abdomen but very thin chest, arms and legs in comparison? That is, do they have abdominal obesity but not chest or extremity obesity? These are the men who have big “beer” bellies and the women who have that double spare tire look…one spare tire above the belt line and one spare tire below the belt line .
I guarantee you none of these have anything to do with drinking beer. Although it can be, most of the time it is due to their consumption of processed foods that stick to their intestines. Processed foods stick like glue together with the mucous like product produced by the cells that line our intestinal tract to protect the integrity of the tract against the presence of these foods.
It is a mucoid plaque that also blocks the exit of the lymph nodes that line the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. What’s happening here? The lymphatic system is responsible for collecting cellular debris, transporting it through the lymphatic system, and discharging this debris into the GI tract. If mucoid plaque prevents this from happening, the lymphatic system backs up with cellular debris with nowhere else to go or to another part of the body.
This generally results in toxic waste having to exit through the skin, which explains why obese people have massive body odours, and through the lungs, which explains why they have bad breath.
How can we get rid of mucoid plaque?
First of all, one must change their diet. The person seeking ultimate weight loss must start eating the right foods. Foods such as fruits, vegetables and products rich in fiber. You must eliminate all processed foods. I’m sorry guys. That means no more Big Macs or Whoppers because meats tend to stick to the GI tract since meat is chemically altered once it’s cooked.
I recommend that you fast from all solid foods for a week and begin a juice diet. Start making fruit smoothies instead of eating the fruit. Here’s why. By squeezing your fruits and/or vegetables, you make the juices more available to the cells in your GI tract. This is very important especially for the intestinal cells which are covered by layers of dense, putrid mucoid plaque, and only fluids and not solids can reach the inner depths of this dump.
Once these cells are rejuvenated by the nutrients in the shake, they will develop some energy, if not enough, to undergo peristalsis, the natural undulating motion the intestines make to move food through the GI tract.
Sometimes a week-long juice fast just isn’t enough. You also have to do some exercise. Yes! I know! All couch potatoes have been avoiding this as much as possible. But you need to exercise.
Specifically, you want to do abdominal exercises like crunches, reverse crunches, and butterfly crunches. You’ll also want to do some back raises. What these exercises do is not only strengthen the rectus abdominis muscles, but also massage the GI tract in such a way that any sticky plaque is loosened from the inner surface. Trust me it works. Don’t be surprised if you have a sudden urge to go to the bathroom right after you’ve done just 30 sit-ups.
Try to do around 100 to 300 abdominal exercises daily to help further massage the GI tract. These exercises will cause an increase in intra-abdominal pressure which, in turn, will put pressure on the GI tract to help push out old mucoid plaque. I had a patient who reportedly lost 8 pounds in a week by doing 500 ab exercises every day!
When you get to the bathroom, you will notice how stinky these mucoid stools are. Sometimes it will take the shape of your intestines and come out in one big, long poop! believe me. The smell of this will gross you out. But at least you’re getting rid of him! With the smell this bad, you do NOT want to be smoking in the bathroom while sitting on the throne.
After a one week cleanse, you will notice that you breathe better and your waist will give you that feeling of “empty” in the abdomen. The lack of presence of mucoid plaque in the intestine will allow the diaphragm that divides the abdominal cavity from the chest cavity to contract better when inhaling and relax better when exhaling. You will also notice that you will be able to tighten the belt one or two notches.
A week of mucoid plaque clearance may NOT be enough for some people. You may need to fast from solid foods for more than a week. People who are morbidly obese will have to fast longer because of all the years of caked-on processed food they carry in their intestines.
Once the mucoid plaque is removed, the lymph nodes lining the intestine can now discharge their cellular debris into the intestine, and the accumulation of edema in peripheral tissues, such as the skin, will reabsorb over time.
If you plan to lose weight, lose the weight in your gut first and the “fatty” weight will come off easily.
Not all obese or overweight people will be able to solve their weight problem right away. Some people have other problems like hypothyroidism. Always check with your health care provider before undergoing any fasting or exercise program.
I hope these wellness concepts work for you. Lose weight and feel great!
