HCB2’s education is firmly rooted in research showing disease and dysfunction thrive in a bodily environment which lacks nutrients and the ability to detoxify itself each day. Contributing to this dysfunction includes a diet of sugar, processed foods, and GMO’s (genetically modified organisms), a chronic state of emotional and mental stress, and an overload of environmental toxins. All the above interferes with the gut’s ability to absorb nutrients and eliminate waste which supports many of today’s common problems: GI dysfunction, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and cellular damage = Disease, cancer included. Remaining hydrated and giving the body real, fresh nutrients found in organic vegetables and fruits, quality fats, and clean sources of protein is the first step in reducing inflammation and creating a bodily environment where cancer is challenged to survive.
