Have you noticed that there are more children with autism? Have you ever wondered what may have caused or led to the cause of autism? I’m sure some of us have noticed that we feel stressed out all the time and are having to take medications for it. Oh, speaking of medications, do you noticed that we are having to rely more and more on pills to control our health?
But, I’m sure that you have never guessed that the answer to your health problems and it’s solutions is in your stomach? Well, lets back up and explain what all of these things mean and how this ties in with curing diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, fibromyalgia and other deadly diseases.

Fermenting unused energy substrates
Training the immune system
