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?
Are you sleeping poorly? Overweight too? Guess what: They are linked. Research confirms that poor sleep habits increase obesity incidence.
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.
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.
NBC and other media outlets have recently reported findings from a study released this summer in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. The media reports that hand-sanitizers and being "too clean" can actually produce unintended effects, including greater incidence of allergies and asthma among 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.
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.
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health.
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?
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?
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.
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.
Do probiotic supplements really work? What does the peer-reviewed research reveal?
The Flu Vaccine Does Nothing: Listen to the Science, Not the Media
New research finds that our gut bacteria linked with negative thinking - and supplementing probiotics can reduce negative thoughts.
H. pylori infection is often treated with three drugs simultaneously, but not everyone responds favorably. Thankfully there are clinically confirmed natural, food-based alternatives.
Did you know that probiotic bacteria are capable of helping you detoxify the most noxious chemicals known to humankind?
Everybody now knows that probiotics are good for you. But here are twelve recently discovered benefits of probiotics that might really surprise you!
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.
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.
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
If what we're doing may contribute to the new normal of childhood chronic illness, then here are 7 bold and brave ways to keep baby safe.
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.
