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.
There is a radically different way to think about health. You may have heard about it, but are you clear on what it truly means, and the transformations it can yield in your mind, body and spirit?
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
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
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.
H. pylori infection is often treated with three drugs simultaneously, but not everyone responds favorably. Thankfully there are clinically confirmed natural, food-based alternatives
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
Industrial agriculture is one of the most unsustainable practices of modern civilization
This special honey is one of Nature's most powerful and safest natural antimicrobials, even capable of treating antibiotic-resistant infections
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
The Common Denominator of All Disease; Part Deux...Is Chronic Disease Just Aging? Is there a difference between Aging and Chronic Disease?
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.
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.
Modern conventional medicine has lost the concept of "cure"
Genetically engineered (GE) bacteria have been found in riboflavin vitamin supplements intended for animal feed use according to newly published EU tests.
H. pylori infection may be treated effectively with two ancient food-based remedies, research suggests
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.
Superbugs pose one of the biggest threats to mankind. When the drugs don't work, who survives?
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.
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
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.
Gene-editing of DNA inside of living cells is considered by many to be the preeminent technological breakthrough of the new millennium, but its commercial prospects are much more complicated
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?
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.
