David Sandoval: The Hidden Epidemic of Glyphosate & Obesity

“Glyphosate has been around initially, believe it or not, since 1980. At that time, things like autism, Alzheimer's, and obesity were really low on the radar but year by year, they have increased as we continued to use this chemical. How could one chemical cause such a diversity of diseases? It is because it destroys our immune system, digestive system, and even our mood. Glyphosate is literally a depressant as it destroys our ability to produce hormones that control our emotions.” – Dave Sandoval

  • What health issues glyphosate can lead to including leaky gut syndrome that destroys the gut microbiome's ability to keep bad things out and digest the vital nutrients such as minerals and vitamins.

Power Quotes From The Show

'Your body is like a rental unit and every single day, you need to pay the bills in the form of nutrients. If those bills don't get paid, then those services get shut down.' - Dave SandovalClick To Tweet

Why Your Body Is Like A Rental Unit

“Your body is like a rental unit. You have to pay the rent, the electricity, and the water bill. So, every single day, your body actually has a daily need for different bills to be paid with nutrients and minerals. If those bills don't get paid, then those services get shut down. Most people have never paid their bills every day and they have no idea of what real health looks like until we show them and it blows their minds.” – Dave Sandoval


Experiencing Freedom With Purium

“If you're not free from disease, illness, or being beholden to a system of medicine or just any system, then you're not truly free. I believe that freedom is the most powerful motivator it's just we haven't tapped into it in so long. When people work with Purium and can live where they want to live, work the hours they want to work, wake when they are rested, rest when they're tired, eat when they're hungry, take the days off they need, make the money they want to make and choose the people that they work with, they start to experience true freedom.” – Dave Sandoval


Cleaning The Inside Of Your Body From Glyphosate

“When people ask me, ‘Well, why do I have to clean the inside of my body,' I ask them whether they shower, brush their teeth, or wash their hair and how often. Once you start cleaning the outside of the body, you're not going to think of it as something that you can do once and then walk away. Just like the first time you took a shower, you didn't say, ‘Oh, I'm clean now. I don't need to do that again.' When you start to develop external hygienic habits, you don't stop them so why would you stop an internal hygiene practice?” – Dave Sandoval
