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.
Bacteria endotoxins - waste matter produced by bacteria - can flood our bodies and cause disease. This is exacerbated by leaky gut syndrome. The combination of the two has now been scientifically linked to a number of metabolic and inflammatory diseases, including heart disease.
The gut and the brain are pretty far apart, but increasingly scientists are connecting the dots and finding that Parkinson's is truly related to gut bacteria.
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.
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?
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.
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.
H. pylori infection is often treated with three drugs simultaneously, but not everyone responds favorably. Thankfully there are clinically confirmed natural, food-based alternatives.
Given what we are now exposed to through our food, air, and water, detoxification has become a modern-day necessity. Without the daily activation of ancient, effective physiological pathways designed to remove environmental toxins, we are bound to get sick. So, what are some simple, effective ways we rid our body of its daily toxic burden?
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).
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.
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.
Are you sleeping poorly? Overweight too? Guess what: They are linked. Research confirms that poor sleep habits increase obesity incidence.
Alarmingly, about 85% of people with depression also experience some anxiety; about 90% of people with anxiety suffer some depression
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
We can now add yet another benefit of raw honey: The presence of a particular probiotic bacteria that bees harvest from the flower along with the nectar. Turns out this probiotic also boosts immunity
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.
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health.
There are so many proven health benefits to probiotics, but immune health is a primary feature. Pat Robinson of Heal Thyself! has done organized the research contained on GreenMedInfo.com, with a focus on its immune benefits.
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.
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.
