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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Are you sleeping poorly? Overweight too? Guess what: They are linked. Research confirms that poor sleep habits increase obesity incidence.
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.
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?
Did you know that probiotic bacteria are capable of helping you detoxify the most noxious chemicals known to humankind?
Does your baby have a healthy gut? What does your baby's poop say about your infant's well-being?
Every functional medicine psychiatrist has case stories of the 'probiotic cure' – of a patient whose debilitating symptoms remitted completely with dietary change and probiotic supplementation
New research finds that our gut bacteria linked with negative thinking - and supplementing probiotics can reduce negative thoughts.
Do probiotic supplements really work? What does the peer-reviewed research reveal?
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing new research indicates that humans are capable of synthesizing vitamin C via their highly complex and capable microbiome.
Rather than haphazardly buying probiotics off the shelf, customize your selection this cold and flu season with evidence-based strains proven to boost immunity
Do your eyes frequently ache after staring at your tablet or smartphone? It’s not just the strain of looking at a small screen. It may be a sign of irreversible damage being done to your eyes—cellular damage that can lead to blindness
Increasingly, it is hard to find honey being used in foods or as a sweetener. Instead, sugar and corn-derived high fructose corn syrup has displaced it. But honey is vastly different than sugar.
The Flu Vaccine Does Nothing: Listen to the Science, Not the Media
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.
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
