Do probiotic supplements really work? What does the peer-reviewed research reveal?
Did you know that probiotic bacteria are capable of helping you detoxify the most noxious chemicals known to humankind?
Leaky Gut Syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that millions of people struggle with and don't even know it can lead to many other health conditions.
If pasteurized milk is so healthy for children, why does it cause constipation?
It is an awesome fact of nature that we have trillions of organisms within our body – containing completely foreign DNA -- some of which break down toxic chemicals that we humans have created to kill other things, but are now killing us, e.g. pesticides. Who are these strange helpers?
For 95% of our evolutionary history, we were hunter-gatherers. What was our microbial-host relationship like for the duration of that experience? A new study on the Hadza people finally sheds light on this fascinating topic.
H. pylori infection is often treated with three drugs simultaneously, but not everyone responds favorably. Thankfully there are clinically confirmed natural, food-based alternatives.
Candida (Yeast) is a late sign of impaired gut health.
Candida is associated with craving simple carbs (white foods--pasta, bread, rice, and all sugars) which feed the yeast. Candida develops for many reasons. Basically, it is a 'helper' attempting to create balance in the gut, generally due to antibiotics, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and sterile foods.
We can make candida obsolete and unnecessary by rebalancing gut microbials.
Infantile colic can be very stressful for parents whose baby is inconsolable during crying episodes. Colic is often defined by the "rule of three": crying for more than three hours per day, for more than three days per week, and for longer than three weeks in an infant who is well-fed and otherwise healthy.
Doctors frequently misuse antibiotics when treating patients hospitalized with respiratory tract infections raising concerns about developing resistant strains of bacteria. Probiotics promote a strong immune system and healthy digestion in addition to providing many other health benefits. Here's how to get natural probiotics from your food.
Researchers from UCLA's Geffen School of Medicine have determined that consuming a milk fermented with probiotics changed the brain activity of women, producing positive changes in signalling pathways along with emotional responses.
Italian researchers have confirmed that a certain oral probiotic species significantly reduces ear infections, throat infections and tonsillitis among children and adults with recurring infections.
It's back to school, and every new school year brings new cold and flu viral infections. Learn how certain bifidobacteria fight off and reduce colds and flu infections.
Researchers from the New York University School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics have determined that children given antibiotics prior to five months of age have a significantly higher risk of becoming obese later in life.
As we reported on back in June of last year in an exposé titled, Consumer Alert: BPA-Free Goods Still Contain Toxin Bisphenol, the petrochemical bisphenol A (BPA), a ubiquitous ingredient in thousands of consumer products and which has been linked to a wide range of serious adverse health effects, has been removed by many ostensibly scrupulous manufacturers in favor of another equally toxic analog in the same chemical class, known as bisphenol S (BPS).
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that attacks joints, bones, organs, and more. RA drugs have terrible side effects and aren't very effective. Here are 10 proven ways to relieve RA naturally.
Does your baby have a healthy gut? What does your baby's poop say about your infant's well-being?
Ultimately, our bodies tell a very different story of our origins and need for cooperation with other cellular communities (i.e. probiotics) than the human ego, and its various anthropocentric explanations of who we are and where we came from.
Researchers from the University of California at San Diego have found the best defense against infections from MRSA and other hospital-acquired infections. Hint: We are already wearing it, unless we kill it off with antibiotics.
New research confirms that breastfeeding increases a certain species of oral bacteria, and these oral bacteria inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria that infect gums and cause dental decay.
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health.
Amazing new research indicates that humans are capable of synthesizing vitamin C via their highly complex and capable microbiome.
New research finds that our gut bacteria linked with negative thinking - and supplementing probiotics can reduce negative thoughts.
