Wheat has been known for some time to contribute to the pathogenesis of diabetes, but the mechanism has not been extensively investigated. New research indicates that the gut flora may provide a 'missing link' in understanding how wheat is capable of causing such great harm.
A groundbreaking new study reveals that non-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS) drive obesity- and diabetes-related changes in both mice and humans.
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
Research indicates that the consumption of wheat contributes to the growth of pathogenic bacteria in our gut
Is Autism a disease of impaired detoxification? Does the accumulative toxic load from vaccinations, GMOs, and acetaminophen contribute to this impaired detoxification?
Deadly bacteria grow in your gut when you eat GMO food, according to a new study.
Children with autism have a peculiar digestive system disorder, as was recently eloquently described by Dr. Arthur Krigsman at the AutismOne conference. How might glyphosate (Roundup) cause this?
Do probiotic supplements really work? What does the peer-reviewed research reveal?
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.
Whether you suffer with a chronic illness, psychiatric disorder or psychological condition, the first thing to check is your belly. That's because “All diseases begin in the gut,” according to the GAPS Diet creator Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, M.D.
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.
At first glance, fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) appears to be a far-fetched procedure devised as a slapstick plot for a sit-com series. However, this innovative technique may revolutionize the future of medical treatments for a host of maladies including autoimmune and allergic diseases as well as autism spectrum disorder.
A revolutionary new concept -- that the bacteria in our bodies is essential to our health -- is only just filtering down into modern day obstetrics. The health of our next generation depends on it.
The nightmarish toxicological profile of Roundup herbicide (glyphosate) continues to emerge within the peer-reviewed research, this time revealing its role in supporting the growth of a pathogenic bacteria of great medical significance.
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.
There is a compelling body of research on the benefits of probiotics in children's health. Pat Robinson, of Heal Thyself, has done an excellent job of reviewing the probiotic research on our database, producing a convenient guide to 27 probiotic benefits for children
Duodenal inflammation (a bloated gut) commonly occurs in conjunction with many other conditions. Here we look at the healing process and steps involved from a natural medicine view.
This special honey is one of Nature's most powerful and safest natural antimicrobials, even capable of treating antibiotic-resistant infections
Honey, unlike almost everything else we consume in our diet, was intended solely to be a form of nourishment -- albeit, for the bees. Only milk, to my knowledge, shares this singular biological imperative. But honey is far more than a source of sweetness and quick energy within the human diet
Ulcers hurt! That burning, gnawing pain will make you want to reach for your ulcer meds fast. But, wait a minute. Not so fast. Those drugs may be causing some really serious problems
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.
Two studies published in the past six months reveal a disturbing finding: glyphosate-based herbicide formulations such as Roundup® suppress the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and lead to the overgrowth of harmful ones.
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?
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.
