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.
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).
If pasteurized milk is so healthy for children, why does it cause constipation?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Doctors frequently misuse antibiotics when treating patients hospitalized with respiratory tract infections raising concerns about developing resistant strains of bacteria.
