How is it that some people can continue to eat the Standard American Diet and live disease-free while others improve their eating habits and still struggle with illness, chronic disease, and cancer?

The root cause of disease begins with broken chemistry in our cells, which arises from our diet and lifestyle choices. Here are the top 7 factors that interact with diet and lifestyle choices to determine health or disease development:

  1. Nutrient deficiencies
  2. Unrecognized food sensitivities
  3. Toxin overload
  4. Excess stress
  5. Inadequate exercise
  6. Inadequate sleep
  7. Inefficient enzymes

For more information on each of these 7 items, read this article on Healthy Holistic Living:
