The Most Common CAUSES OF Acute Illness

  1. Susceptibility to the pathogen. The father of the germ theory himself said that it is not the germ itself, but the terraine that determines if an infection will take hold.
  2. Immune imbalance caused by chronic inflammation, chronic stress, diet, insomnia, lack of movement, environmental exposures.
  3. Foods irritating your system, nutrient deficiencies and poor blood sugar balance.
  4. Acute illness such as the common cold, strep throat, or the flu.



  1. Physical exam and history to determine which illness you currently have.
  2. If you have frequent acute illnesses (more than 6 a year), assessment of underlying factors making you susceptible is appropriate.
  3. Assess diet and test nutrient levels in blood as well as investigate digestive health.
