A growing body of research indicates that environmental toxins hinder healthy immune function. Toxin-induced immune dysregulation may make it difficult to recover from chronic infections, such as Lyme disease. While our bodies are equipped with systems for removing toxins, these systems quickly become bogged down in our modern-day world due to the sheer number of toxins we face. Read on to learn how toxins compromise immune function and why detoxifying your body using science-based nutrition, lifestyle, and supplementation strategies can support healthy immune function and, if you have Lyme disease or another chronic infection, may assist you in your recovery.

In recent weeks, I’ve been researching SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 for my work as a technical writer within the nutraceutical industry and as a clinical nutritionist. In this time, I’ve delved into the research on how SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) harms the body and found some exciting interrelationships between the virus, it’s effects on inflammatory pathways, and nutrition. In this nerdy blog post, I’ll discuss how SARS-CoV-2 activates the NLRP3 inflammasome, a potent pro-inflammatory network, and how therapeutic foods may attenuate NLRP3 inflammasome activity and its harmful effects on the body.

Recently, I came across a scientific article written from an ancestral health perspective that piqued my interest, and that I thought might interest my readers who have dealt with mold illness as well. The article, published in Frontiers in Immunology and titled An Evolutionary-Based Framework for Analyzing Mold and Dampness-Associated Symptoms in DMHS, discusses why exposure to harmful environmental molds, such as those that might be encountered in a water-damaged home, causes illness from an ancestral health perspective. I’ll then go on to explain why I believe that an ancestral health framework is the ideal approach for treating mold illness.

However, when you eat (and don’t eat) is also vitally important! Read on to learn how intermittent fasting can accelerate your recovery process and optimize your health long-term.
