15 May Why is the TDOS Syndrome so harmful?
The TDOS Syndrome is the biggest — and most under the radar — superstorm in the history of human health and wellness. The rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease are increasing exponentially due to its effects. And relatively few of us are aware of it or doing anything to protect ourselves.
If we look at the four co-factors — Toxicity, Nutritional Deficiency, Overweight, and Stress — we’ll understand why they are harmful. With understanding, we can begin to make better health choices.
The interconnectivity of these four individual co-factors plays a large role in sabotaging the body’s natural ability to function optimally. They also prevent the body from losing weight. While every single factor weakens our health, together they threaten it so significantly that our future as a species is endangered.
“The TDOS Syndrome is a major contributing factor to speeding up the aging process,” said Bill Andrews, Ph.D., founder of Sierra Sciences & Institute for Advanced Telomere Medicine. “My research as a molecular biologist for more than 30 years has focused on slowing down or ideally reversing the aging process. TDOS has to be recognized and addressed in any strategy to combat the aging process.”
The first two harmful Co-Factors
Toxicity is the first of the four co-factors, and it plays a significant role in diet and weight loss. A century ago, almost anyone could drink from a freshwater stream, and kids drank straight from the backyard hose. Water supplies didn’t need to go through purification stations to remove the sewage, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Enhancing water supplies with fluoride or other minerals was unnecessary.
In the past, our food didn’t contain herbicides and pesticides. Animals weren’t pumped full of growth hormones. And there was no need to re-enhance foods with vitamins and minerals now missing from our food supplies. Because of the onslaught of toxicity, the human body has created its own toxins called “obesogens.” The main problem regarding weight loss is that the body refuses to release excess weight. To do so is a threat to poisoning the body with these toxins.
Nutritional Deficiency plays a huge role on its own, but also as a co-factor. When the body doesn’t get optimal nutrition it can’t function at the highest level. Our food supplies no longer have sufficient vitamins and minerals needed for the body to operate optimally. Most diet approaches include some type of caloric restriction. But when calories are cut, the amount of nutrition is diminished. This results in the body getting less than what it needs for peak performance.
The body needs proper proportions of protein, carbohydrates, and fats as well as vitamins and minerals. For example, if you start an exercise program, the body needs protein to help with building muscle and recovery. When the body is riddled with toxicity, it’s harder for it to process any nutrition. And when there is a lack of nutrition, to begin with, every problem gets magnified. Combine that nutritional deficiency with diets high in processed foods and sugar and you have the recipe for an out-of-balance body.
The last two harmful Co-Factors
If you are Overweight, obese, or too thin, it’s likely your body is dealing with a certain degree of toxic burden. If the body is flooded with toxins, sustainable weight loss becomes impossible because the excess fat is protecting the body from itself. If the surplus of fat is released without a nutritional cleansing program, it’s possible it could flood the body with toxicity.
Those toxins could cause a myriad of problems and potentially make a person sick. When adding overweight to toxicity and nutritional deficiency, we can see each co-factor’s individual role and combined effect. One major reason conventional weight loss programs fail in the long run is due in part to the impact of the TDOS Syndrome.
Stress is the last harmful co-factor, and a killer on its own. People who have otherwise been in good health have been decimated by stress. As we know, external life stresses can raise blood pressure among other things. Excess weight also puts a significant amount of stress on the body.
TDOS Syndrome – When Toxicity, Nutritional Deficiency, Overweight, and Stress Collide to Threaten Our Health by Peter Greenlaw with Nicolas Messina, MD is an important book found in the San Marco Wellness Resource section. It explains the four harmful co-factors and provides evidence for this syndrome.
The TDOS Solution
Since TDOS Syndrome is a collaborative problem, we must look at it in two ways. First, by examining how each co-factor builds on the others and its power to magnify our collective health problems. Second, picking apart each co-factor as it wreaks havoc individually and seeing the effects of each one. When you see the interconnectivity, you can understand the multiplier effect. Gaining this perspective can lead us to embrace the solutions.
San Marco Wellness features a comprehensive multi-dimensional program that provides a solution to the TDOS Syndrome. We take a medically supervised evidence-based approach which includes Semaglutide, a customized Mediterranean diet, nutritional cleansing, and fitness recommendations.
