(NaturalHealth365) Eating healthy foods can prevent early death and reduce the incidence of chronic disease – a fact most of us can easily get behind. But given all the marketing and nutrition philosophies out there – from the vegan diet to the keto diet -what’s less clear is which “healthy foods” should make it onto our weekly grocery list.
(NaturalHealth365) Having a healthy gut goes far beyond ensuring you have bowel regularity and freedom from gas, bloating, and stomach cramps. For example, researchers now believe gut health can even affect your mental health and that people lacking certain types of gut bacteria appear more likely to experience depression.
(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) Threats to health – including exposure to environmental toxins, heavy metals, EMF radiation, bacteria and viruses – seem to be everywhere these days, highlighting the need for a strong, efficient immune system. And, with 80 percent of the immune system located in the gut, it’s easy to see that immune health and gut health are closely connected.
Candida is a type of fungus (or, more specifically – yeast) that can cause fungal infections like candidiasis, candidemia, and oral thrush. Dozens of species of candida are known to affect humans and Candida albicans is the most common.[2, 3] When the immune system functions normally, Candida is kept in check and exists harmlessly in the skin or mucous membranes like those of the gut and vaginal area. It’s even among the organisms that newborns acquire during natural birth, nursing, or from food. However, a compromised immune system, and other factors such as poor diet, can lead to an imbalance where Candida overwhelms the body, a condition known as Candida overgrowth. →
(Naturalhealth365)What do brain disorders like autism, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s have in common? New research reveals a shocking link.
Caring for a loved one with any of these “incurable” brain abnormalities can be heart-wrenching. Whether it’s a parent who can’t remember their child or a child unable to communicate their emotions with a parent, brain disorders have a considerable effect on families and their communities. →
(NaturalHealth365)Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) occurs when your liver becomes “marbled” with fat. In some cases, this occurs due to unhealthy and improper eating habits, such as consuming too many sugars and “toxic” fats. Unfortunately, if fatty liver isn’t addressed properly, it can lead to serious forms of liver disease like liver cancer or cirrhosis. And, while a variety of different factors may contribute to NAFLD, it’s significantly more common in obese individuals. Today, we’ll focus on why eating cruciferous vegetables are so important. →
Nurses and doctors across America will beg and plead with you to get your flu shot “early” so you can build up immunity to the known mass serial killer called influenza. Yet, most people who die from the flu didn’t really. They died from pneumonia, MRSA superbugs and a crippled immune system caused by the very institution that gave them the flu shot in the first place.
First off, you can’t “build immunity” by injecting mercury into your muscle tissue. Second, the flu that spreads around America can be one or more of a dozen strains, on up to twenty. The influenza vaccine is just a “shot in the dark” (pun intended). The CDC has no idea which strains to include, and they most often guess completely wrong, then admit it, while telling you to get the shot anyway, “just to be safe.” →
(Natural News) A recent study from the Beckman Research Institute in California revealed a surprising link between gut bacteria and inflammation. The findings, which were published in the journal Nature Communications, identified an envelope molecule from Bacteroides fragilis to have anti-inflammatory properties. According to the researchers, the molecule – which they called capsular polysaccharide A (PSA) – promotes protective and anti-inflammatory responses during a viral infection. In particular, it can be used to protect the body against herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE), a severe form of brain inflammation with a 70 percent mortality rate without treatment. →
(NaturalHealth365) Whether you are fat or thin may be a family trait, but not just through the inheritance of poor eating habits and a tradition of second helpings. But, before you jump to conclusions, this is not your typical story about genetics and if you want to avoid degenerative disease – I suggest you carefully read this story. →
