When the increase in harmful bacteria and yeast (candida) within the intestine reaches a tipping point, the intestinal wall is breached. This is in part caused by the aldehydes released when candida are in such high concentrations that they stand in competition with each other. The aldehydes that are secreted to ward each other off, breakdown the soft tissue holding our intestinal cells together called “desmosomes”. This subsequent breach allows food particles to pass through the intestine wall and the immune system becomes overwhelmed. The liver, which receives 70% of its blood flow from the intestine, is charged with detoxify the blood.
If the necessary compounds for gluthione replenishment, methylation, acetylation are are in short supply the liver simply shuttles the toxins into fat cells to keep them from invading the rest of the body.3 These fat cells are stored in the liver and elsewhere throughout the body.
