Health Begins In the Gut. From a clinical standpoint, insofar as functional medicine is concerned, whether you present with rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, or systemic lupus erythematosus---the fundamental objective is the same: heal the gut.
The misuse of antibiotics is not only causing new, never-before known diseases like E. coli and MRSA, the flesh-eating bacteria, it's also destroying the gut biome with devastating effects on our ability to deal with infections and destroying our ability to absorb nutrients from food.
Modern conventional medicine has lost the concept of "cure"
Rather than haphazardly buying probiotics off the shelf, customize your selection this cold and flu season with evidence-based strains proven to boost immunity
Industrial agriculture is one of the most unsustainable practices of modern civilization
Garlic's power to kill serious infections is legendary. A new study proves this to be true for one of the most common female infections as well: bacterial vaginosis.
The Common Denominator of All Disease; Part Deux...Is Chronic Disease Just Aging? Is there a difference between Aging and Chronic Disease?
Kimchi is one of the world's most popular fermented foods, but did you know that eating it daily can significantly impact your cancer risk?
Perhaps the most pressing crisis facing humanity is the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. It is estimated that by 2050, 10 million people will die every year from resistant bacterial infections. Bacteria have been developing antimicrobial resistance for over 2 billion years, we have known of the problem of resistant bacteria since the 1980s, yet it is only now that we are taking concerted action to address the problem. The question is: are we too late?
Diabetes is not the hopeless disease that most doctors would have us believe it is though it is a long losing battle if you walk the trail western medicine wants you to travel
Superbugs pose one of the biggest threats to mankind. When the drugs don't work, who survives?
Could saving your teeth require firing your periodonist? While they mean well, many can not see beyond their training, using supportive, nutritional-based therapies that strike to the underlying cause of the problem
When magnesium is deficient, things begin to die, but when our body’s magnesium levels are topped off, our body physiology tends to hum along like a racecar yielding higher performance
The average American consumes 200 pounds of meat and fish, 67 pounds of poultry, 30 pounds of eggs, and 600 pounds of dairy products each year, virtually all of which is contaminated with veterinary drug residues.
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
Children 2 years old and under who take antibiotics are at a bigger risk for childhood-onset chronic diseases such as asthma, allergies, obesity and ADHD, underscoring yet again the need for the prudent use of antibiotics, as they affect the gut microbiome early in life
Vaccines are the template for the fear-based belief system that those who don't know their history will easily fall for.
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 may be treated effectively with two ancient food-based remedies, research suggests
Genetically engineered (GE) bacteria have been found in riboflavin vitamin supplements intended for animal feed use according to newly published EU tests.
Today research wrongly considers hospital birth as the gold standard. Bias towards hospital births causes the majority of researchers to ignore the fact that women could achieve even better outcomes than hospital birth, at planned attended homebirth.
Scientists have been warning of a possible medical catastrophe from an epidemic of antibiotic resistant superbugs. Manuka honey may be a natural and ancient solution to a modern health disaster.
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
Not many people realize they have two brains. Yes, you read that right. And your second brain may have more to do with your health that you ever imagined.
