(Natural News) Americans who take prescription medications are some of the sickest people on planet Earth, and they will most likely stay that way, by design. These are the same folks who lined up the day the Covid vaccine was first released, even though it was only “emergency use approval” with no tests for safety or efficacy. These are folks who think natural remedies are just for hippies with crazy conspiracy theories about vaccines and prescription medications being toxic for the human body. These are consumers who believe they can find helpful guidance for health and safety by using Google as their search engine. These folks need help, bad, and soon.

Unfortunately, in today’s society of pill taking, we use too many antibiotics with the increasing danger of antibiotic resistance. The problem is further compounded with antibiotics found in factory foods like dairy and meat products.
According to the CDDEP (The Center of Disease Dynamics, Economics, & Policy), the United States is one of the highest users of antibiotics – ranking fifth in the world.

(NaturalHealth365) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calls the problem of antibiotic resistance, one of the “biggest public health challenges” of our time. Indeed, when pathogens become immune to the medications meant to combat them, it is a public health issue with frightening consequences. Also known as antimicrobial resistance, antibiotic resistance affects nearly 3 million Americans and claims a shocking 35,000 lives each year. Thankfully, essential oils have the ability to combat bacterial and viral infections.

(NaturalHealth365) There is nothing particularly attractive or healthful-sounding about the phrase “gut bacteria.” In fact, one could say it sounds fairly unappealing! (Unless you understood what we’ll tell you today.)
In truth, gut bacteria – the thriving community composed of trillions of microbes in the digestive tract – just might be the best friend your body never knew it had.

(NaturalHealth365) Probiotics and prebiotics – substances that encourage and nourish the presence of beneficial bacteria in the body – have grown in popularity as science reveals their many health benefits. One prebiotic in particular, inulin, is currently enjoying a lot of “buzz” – due to recent research showing that it may improve digestive health and combat obesity.
Inulin, a soluble dietary fiber found in plants, can’t be broken down by the body. While this may sound like a drawback, it is actually a huge “plus.” To learn why – and to discover the surprising disease-fighting benefits of inulin – keep reading via https://www.naturalhealth365.com/benefits-of-inulin-3629.html

(NaturalHealth365) We sometimes use the words “gut instinct” to refer to a deeply held belief or powerful impulse – without fully realizing just how appropriate that phrase is. Researchers are beginning to recognize the immense power of the gut microbiome (the community of bacteria living in the gastrointestinal tract) to protect against disease, regulate metabolism and even influence mood and outlook.
