Are you sleeping poorly? Overweight too? Guess what: They are linked. Research confirms that poor sleep habits increase obesity incidence.
A groundbreaking new study finds probiotic ‘germs’ may provide an alternative to vaccination for malaria – a finding that challenges fundamental tenets of both vaccinology and germ theory.
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.
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.
Koreans have been enjoying salted and fermented vegetables known as kimchi for about 2000 years. But this spicy dish is much more than a condiment. More than 130 studies attest to the amazing healing properties of this humble 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.
Did you know that there are billions of years of biological information encoded within your cells, and that depending on what you do or do not eat, the information incarnates or remains latent?
There is a compelling body of research on the benefits of probiotics in children's health. Pat Robinson, of Heal Thyself, has done an excellent job of reviewing the probiotic research on our database, producing a convenient guide to 27 probiotic benefits for children.
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.
The notion that asthma is a genetic disorder or one of faulty lungs rings untrue in light of the evidence. Research from Australia has now determined that many asthma patients are dealing with a sustained bout of bacteria infection - often resistant to antibiotics.
H. pylori infection is often treated with three drugs simultaneously, but not everyone responds favorably. Thankfully there are clinically confirmed natural, food-based alternatives.
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
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.
Ever wonder why some people seem to have more inflammation, fatigue and obesity than others despite their best efforts? New research has discovered the answer relates to the diversity of our gut’s probiotic bacteria.
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.
By now, we are well aware of the gut-brain connection. Can supplementing with probiotics reduce the risk for brain disorders in children, including ADHD and autism spectrum disorders?
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health.
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
Much speculation has revolved around the causes for nonalcoholic liver disease and cirrhosis over the years. New findings provide surprising links between our gut bacteria, leaky gut and the liver's health.
Millions of Americans take over the counter painkillers like Advil or Aleve without realizing they can damage the gut, leading to leaky gut syndrome. Here's how you can heal it...
Rather than haphazardly buying probiotics off the shelf, customize your selection this cold and flu season with evidence-based strains proven to boost immunity
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 finds that our gut bacteria linked with negative thinking - and supplementing probiotics can reduce negative thoughts.
Did you know that probiotic bacteria are capable of helping you detoxify the most noxious chemicals known to humankind?
