Video #1 In Series On Cellular Inflammation – What Is It? Why Is It Important? How Do You Know If You Have It?

This is the first in a short series of videos we’ve been doing in our practice regarding cellular inflammation, cellular toxicity and their far-reaching effects on our health and function.

In this video, my hubby Dr. Marc dives into a few major points:

How chronic cellular inflammation drives all serious, chronic illness like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, hormonal imbalance/hormonal resistance and so much more. (By the way, some inflammation is perfectly healthy… chronic systemic inflammation is not.)

What are the leading causes of chronic systemic inflammation at the level of the cell?

  • sugar
  • refined carbs
  • bad fats (trans fats, polyunsaturated vegetable oils)
  • and TOXINS!!!

In the simplest sense…

Cellular inflammation blocks normal hormonal communication that should take place at and through the cell membrane.

Inflammation skews the hormone receptor sites on the cell membranes, therefore skewing the communication of GOOD into the cell and BAD out of the cell. More hormones (e.g. hormone replacement therapy) does not solve the problem of the cells not being able to receive the message from the hormones!

There’s a great visual in this video that likens your 50 – 70 trillion cells to little buckets that can (1) become overburdened by toxicity, and (2) become damaged over time due to toxins, trauma, and stress.

Just look at this sampling of all that inflammation can contribute to! Suffice it to say, your health achievement efforts are incomplete if you’re not addressing inflammation and toxicity!

We can test for cellular inflammation. We can decrease toxic triggers and begin to empty your buckets. And, we can repair the cell. That’s THE winning combination for dramatically improving your current health (inside & out) AND protecting your future health!

Take at look at video #1 in the series.


If you’d like to request a Meta Oxy test (mentioned in the video) to test your current level of cellular inflammation, let me know. I can easily send it your way, walk you through the test, and review your results with you.

Also, if you’d like more information on the cellular detoxification & repair protocol we use, &/or additional functional medicine testing to identify sensitivities, toxicities, and nutrient deficiencies, let me know that, too. Once again, it’s available via our distance care programs – no need to be in our neck-of-the-woods!
