The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein, chapter 6.
While most protein products are marketed toward men and bodybuilding, the protein problem affects women in many specific ways. These include osteoporosis, hormone deficiency, beauty concerns such as sagging skin and wrinkles, loss of muscle mass, and problems during menopause.

We’ve established that inadequate protein intake can cause devastating results. A lack of nutrition along with environmental toxicity are the reasons for the poor health we experience today. Never before in human history has the human race suffered from epidemics like diabetes, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, ALS, osteoporosis, obesity, cancers, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, and countless other problems.
We’ve also established that an inability to digest enough protein contributes to the increase in health issues and disease. Patients come into the clinic, and we discover they haven’t been eating or digesting well; they’re toxic because they’re unaware of what they’ve been putting into their bodies, or what they’ve been exposed to.

The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein, chapter 4.
As we’ve already discussed, access to clean protein sources is only one part of the problem; it must also be properly digested. This is a complicated process that requires a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which, unfortunately, many people lack.
You must absorb enough essential amino acids per pound or kilogram of body weight because the protein we need is made from aminos. Like it or not, animal proteins are the best natural source of essential amino acids for our bodies to function optimally. Vegetable proteins, on the other hand, have mixes of essential amino acids, but they are lacking in one or two—they don’t nourish as well as animal protein. In other words, the level of amino acid utilization is poor. The bottom line is that our body is an animal body, and it needs proteins from animal foods to maintain its lean body mass.

The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein, chapter 3.
Between 2.5 million and ten thousand years ago, Paleo-lithic Era man obtained much of their protein from game, fish, and eggs. At that time, animals roamed free and pollution wasn't a concern, so the overall nutritional health of humans was at a high level. If we still ate food like our hunter-gatherer ancestors did, there would be no need for protein or vitamin or mineral supplementation.

Several common myths surround protein and its importance in our lives. This chapter offers insight into the problems created by these myths and how to approach solving them.
You may think there’s nothing wrong with this statement, but one look at this amino acid utilization chart shows us that they are most definitely not the same. The chart shows the substances and foods people consider to be sources of protein and their utilization rates based on amino acid profiles.

According to the CDC, 37 million people in the US have chronic kidney disease . And 90% of them don’t even know it. Kidney disease creates protein toxicity.
An estimated 100 million Americans live with impaired liver function and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease . And since the year 2000, deaths from liver cirrhosis have gone up a shocking 19.5% .
The liver is critical for processing the toxic byproducts of protein metabolism.
Everyone is affected by this. Continue reading now!

If you’ve ever had a shock and felt the adrenaline surge in your body then you’ve felt cortisol. It’s a wake-you-up, get-you–ready-for-action hormone.
It really is. It hits its lowest point around midnight, so you can go to sleep, and then peaks again about an hour after you’ve gotten up in the morning, getting you to wake up and get ready for the day.
It’s nick-named the “stress hormone” because it’s released in moments of stress. So in a dangerous situation, or if you get scared suddenly, you’ll feel it.
But… when we have too-high levels of cortisol for too long, it can make us feel stressed… even if we have no reason to be.
