(NaturalNews) It seems we have many things to blame for our deteriorating health. We have our less than stellar genetics, our chronological age, and other "unknown factors". However, these are not the main reasons our health is going downhill, and it's time to reveal the main culprits.

Lack of enzymes

Enzymes are one of the most essential elements in the body. Without them, you wouldn't be able to breathe, swallow, drink, eat, or digest your food. Enzymes are required to help perform these tasks, and therefore, are a necessity to live.

Eighty percent of our energy is expended through the digestive process. If you are run down, stressed, living in a very hot or cold climate, pregnant, or a frequent air traveler, then enormous amounts of extra enzymes are required by the body.

Unfortunately, as we age our organs responsible for producing our digestive enzymes become less efficient. Combine this with our obsession with "dead" and genetically altered food that causes free radical damage, and you quickly deplete your body's ability to produce enzymes.

Many researchers now view the aging process and death as nothing more than depleted enzyme levels, which have reached the point where the body can no longer be repaired and maintained in its current environment.

Not enough probiotics

Our bodies contain ten times more bacteria than cells. This discovery neatly revealed the emphasis we need to put behind beneficial probiotics in order to maintain a healthy body.

Probiotics literally mean "for life", and help immune cells fight disease, assist digestion, and provide nutrients for building blood. They also help clean your liver, which is your primary mechanism to remove toxins.

Our diets have become seriously deficient in probiotics due to agricultural practices (chemicals, zero tilling), processed foods, and a general lack of quality produce in our diet. As a result, we suffer from bad bacterial overgrowth, which severely compromises the immune system and your ability to fight off any foreign invaders or infections.

Deficient in vitamins and minerals

In a study from the University of Texas that was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, nutritional data was studied from the USDA from both 1950 and 1999 for 43 different vegetables and fruits, and it was found that "reliable declines" were present in the amount of protein, calcium, phosphorous, iron, riboflavin and vitamin C.

The Organic Consumers Association also cites data that analyzed nutrients from 1975 to 1997 and found that calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent, iron levels 37 percent, vitamin A levels 21 percent, and vitamin C levels 30 percent.

A lack of vitamins and minerals will cause all kinds of disease processes, because without them our body lacks the nutrients required to build and repair blood, tissues, muscles, and bones.

Burdened liver from toxic overload

Our food, water, and air have been assaulted through various chemicals and processes, and as a result, we have been inundated at every level with a toxic burden to bear. Not only that, but personal care products and medical procedures and products (x-rays, dental amalgams, prescriptions) have also added to this burden.

In a perfect world, our liver would be able to handle the toxins we take in and properly dispatch them so they do not bio-accumulate in the body. However, our liver has been inundated and rendered inefficient, and as a result it can't execute that task with any efficiency.

As a result, our toxic burden in not alleviated properly, or worse, it continues unabated if we choose to not eat and drink clean, and in a way that naturally detoxifies us on a daily basis.

There is no shortage of reasons your health is deteriorating, but if you focus on improving these areas, your health will improve.
