The Cause of all Illness
by Darren Sassall
Disease in the body manifests in a wide variety of symptoms, but interestingly, there is a common denominator and cause behind these symptoms – Inflammation and Oxidation!
While industry funded science focuses on individual diseases, population wide diets and the symptom based treatment of illness with drugs (and more recently natural supplements), they ignore the overall context of life and its basic biochemical requirements.
How this situation has come to pass is simple enough to understand in the context of a capitalist system when industry is beholden to shareholders and their profit motive – the focus is always going to be on treatment and not prevention or cure.
Your disease has its origins in the end result of unregulated inflammation and oxidation
Your body seeks to maintain balance 24/7 by the innate process of homeostasis. All of us (and any organism for that matter), properly nourished in a chemically clean environment, will self-repair and remain healthy. Disease happens when these basic conditions for life are not met.
A loss of this self-regulatory capacity due to unregulated inflammation and oxidation then manifests itself as acidity and one thing leads to another. Follow the flow here:
acidity > low cell oxygen > low cell energy > enzyme error > altered cell function > dis-ease manifesting as symptoms.
Your symptoms differ to your neighbour’s due to your inherited genetics and are influenced by your personal diet and lifestyle choices and toxic environmental exposures but have the same underlying biochemical cause.
These symptoms include the “disease” your doctor has identified, described and labelled for you as heart disease, arthritis, depression, infection, cancer etc. and has “diagnosed” and treated without regard for the low energy environment that created them.

Stay with me now…
At Core Naturopathics, our ‘Better Health Management’ system is designed to measure, direct and support the balancing of your basic biochemistry and thereby assist the body as far as possible in creating the internal environment conducive to optimal function. An environment in which the body has the capacity and resources to appropriately manage inflammation and oxidation.
Think of your cells as fish in a salt water aquarium. The water (your blood) must freely circulate, continually replenishing oxygen and carrying away metabolic wastes. It must also contain assorted nutrients, minerals and be of the appropriate pH. Improper feeding, acidic waste build-up and/or oxygen shortages will cause cells to malfunction and guess what? Your tank goes green and your fish (cells) start floating belly up!
So leave behind the allopathic paradigm of ‘a medicine for every symptom’ and seek to identify the root causes of your symptoms stemming from toxins, wrong nutrition, poor lifestyle choices and old patterns of belief, emotional stress and fear. Take appropriate steps at this seed level and forget about any kind of silver bullet – remove the ‘up stream’ drivers of your condition and logically there will be no ‘downstream’ symptoms to deal with.
What if my fish tank is cracked – I have cancer!
No think of your condition as having acidic hypoxia – takes all the fear and loathing out of it!
Cancer is nothing more than the last stop on the inflammation cascade resulting in a catastrophic loss of self-regulatory capacity by the cells involved. This loss and mutation being a last gasp attempt to adapt to an extreme change in environment.
Your DNA has become crippled, un-expressive and unable to coordinate enzyme defences. Immune response has also failed as cells lack the bio-electrical energy to mount an oxidative response or produce protective factors. Bacteria, viruses and fungi circle like vultures, gathering and multiplying in the low oxygen/low bio-energy conditions, as connective tissues and mucous membranes are weak and immune cells haven’t the capacity to keep them under control.
Now hidden within an acidic fortress, tumours refuse oxygen as they stimulate cell division addicted to a steady supply of sugar and set off invading into surrounding connective tissues until a final tipping point is reached. Or until you find the focussed intent, will and effort necessary to put in place a strategy to reverse the process.
And your approach will focus on what do you need to remove as cause (from diet, lifestyle, thinking and environment) and what do you need to add in the way of support (what do you need, how much of it, how often and for how long) to assist as far as possible in the bodies never faltering attempts to move towards health.
Yes, orthodox care including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy can be useful but as you may well be starting to understand, it is your capacity to recover not only from the disease process but also the treatment that needs to factored in.
Cleaning and repairing your fish tank
In your initial consultation at Core Naturopathics we will take a biochemical ‘fingerprint’ or ‘snapshot’ of your biochemistry to assess how far from balance you are? We then set about establishing what is driving or causing the unregulated inflammation and oxidation, putting in place coping strategies, support and monitoring as required until the body has (as far as possible) regained self-regulatory capacity.
In essence, all therapy is focused on the need to support and re-establish optimal cellular environment and capacity.
